Tag Archives: Detroit Bankruptcy



Citing runaway deficits and long-term debts Detroit could never repay on its own, Gov. Rick Snyder today pulled the trigger and announced he will appoint an emergency financial manager for the state’s largest city.

Read here:

It is about time somebody stepped up and smacked down this city and the incompetent fools who “run” it. You would think 30 years of rampant corruption and blatant unethical conduct would be grounds enough – a ‘mandate from heaven’ – for anyone in any leadership position in the State at large to annex this God-forsaken place without debate; but no, we had to spend the last three years in what is essentially bankruptcy, pretending like any of us cared what JoAnn Watson ‘thinks’ (believe me I use that term real loosely).

Sorry folks, but there is no “absolute right” to self governance. Particularly if you make bad decisions, squandering resources and destroying credit in the name of the public – your credibility is attached to those things. The rest of us should not have to suffer while you roll around in the mud, dragging us down into a state of rancor with you.

Detroit is simply not suited for pure democracy…because Her people are too stupid. A democracy cannot adequately function when half the population can barely read. I appreciate that many people in Detroit are very poor and need help; however, “help” is not placing those people in delicate positions of power where lots of other citizens depend on them.

I care about Detroit’s poor. I do not care about Detroit’s poor’s ideas for fixing their own condition.

I welcome the authoritarian wielding absurd levels of zero oversight, no contest declarations. This city is already on its knees; time to cut out the cancer and begin the real rebirth – through fire.

First Of The Municipal Bankruptcies: Detroit

I invite you, my dear reader, to take part in this historic moment with me. At hand is the first in a wave of municipal bankruptcies that will shake the country. And this avalanche begins with none other than Detroit, MI.

Detroit, long the asshole of the United States, has been the butt of jokes for the better part of four decades now.

From her amazing ability to elect criminals to every facet of government, to her unparalleled capacity to stick her head in the ground and refuse to acknowledge any problems, and her intense insistence to reduce every issue, be it fraud, accounting scandals, ineptitude, or murdering hookers named Strawberry, down to a simplified and wrong message of race, Detroit is without a doubt the poster child for other American cities ranging from Chicago to Philadelphia to DC.

After the Great Rick Snyder (May The Gods Watch Over Him) was elected to his chair as governor of Michigan, he quickly implemented a series of reforms designed to save the city (and the rest of the State from it). The keystone to this initiative was the installation of Emergency Financial Managers.

However, the EFM law was put to ballot this election, and the Michigan people ultimately struck it down. This has set into motion an avalanche of consequence, very much to the alarm of those of us that were waiting to be delivered by the saving grace of this “Caesar”.


Sadly, this bright future is gone now. I have heard only one reasonable explanation for voting against the EFM law, thus far. It came from a friend, who said, and I quote, “Fuck the emergency manager. Last I checked, we have judges for ripping apart failed entities.”

So be it, and fair enough. This was always a matter of choosing which faceless individual got to shred the unions that have cluttered Michigan. Continuing as we have was never an option.

But, unfortunately, the only way a judge can make these decisions is AFTER a municipal bankruptcy.

Sensing that their time at the trough may be over, yesterday a very panicked JoAnn Watson (resident lunatic of Detroit City Council) came out with a passionate plea for the rest of the country to facilitate her staying in power.

It is critical, you see, that she be allowed to enact her every whim at your expense, because her ideas are so awesome. You just don’t realize how awesome they are, because they haven’t worked. But they are, and she is so cool.

However, I do not see bailing out Detroit as a viable option for the feds. Rick Snyder and the GOP are also overreaching at the same moment (in my opinion) by bringing to the table Right To Work legislation (Michigan remains a very pro-union state, regardless of the recent ballot failures). Should Obama&Co. decide to bail out Detroit, it would shift outrage from the MI GOP for this legislation and back to support as a Detroit bailout from Washington is sure to enrage most of the country, and most of Michigan.

The rest of Michigan hates Detroit, because they are faggots to this state’s furze-cutter.

Now, watch with me good crazy people of the internet, as the second stone falls into place.
