Detroit needs to Get In Line. Behind California and NewYork.
The MSM should investigate the history of the 'Fiscal Cliff'. If the hand of big government is going to be forced, the public needs to know its operation.

On second thought, it takes a lot of guts for her to ask for another bailout.

Hey, JoAnn, how'd you like to be Secretary of State?

Detroit is like a third world city and given the politicians controlling this should come as no surprise. The American taxpayers do not owe these corrupt idiots anything! They created the problems now let them solve them by themselves!

The auto industry got the bail out. Detroit didn't.
Now that the state won't give them any more money. Thanks to a Republican governor they think they can get money from the federal government.
They tried to say that the state owed them money.
The state has been bailing them out and the money has stopped.

Councilwoman Watson is exactly who Mitt Romey was talking about when he mentioned the 47%. Looking for a handout? Well, Detroit got what they asked for... and what they deserve.

Dee-troit,otherwise known as Mo(FO)Town is virtually a ghost town. In dee-cline for 2 decades it has lost 25% of it's 80s population,70% of the businesses have either moved or shut down. 1/4 of the homes are vacant. There is no significant tax base. The city is broke. 60+% of the people are on some sort of gov't subsistance. Police,fire and other govt services are almost non-existant. It has a legacy of corruption,controlled by union stooges with a long track record of mismanagement.

And NOW some rinky-dink Dee-troit City council woman wants Obama to waste American taxpayers' dollars based on Black support for Obama in that city. AFTER the auto industry there recieved billions in bailout money.

You just can't make this sh1t up.....

Who could blame her for demanding more? I'm told that some of Detroits fifth generation ghettoites don't even an Escalade or a 70" television.

Where is the "social justice" in that nightmarish situation.

Those who voted for Obama because they thought they'd GET something for their effort, are still wondering why help hasn't arrived.

Still shaking their heads in wide-eyed disbelief that their SANTA has NOTHING in the bag for them.

But sadly they still cling to HOPE and demand 'quid pro quo'.

<LOL>
