Who Woulda Ever Thought It?

Detroit Files Largest Municipal Bankruptcy Case In U.S. History!


Bloviating Zeppelin beat me to it. BZ's sentiments are the same as mine, so thanks for doing the groundwork, BZ.

Out of idle curiosity, I wonder how many trillions of $$$ Down Low's gonna cost us on this one? 

GOTTA keep those bathhouses operating, you know!


With one last addition... it just wouldn't be complete without this:

  1. Words fail me - I wouldn't even know where to start with this because Democrats don't really care. This is the goal isn't it? So they can say the constitution has failed and we need to overthrow it? This is PROGRESS! And very racist of you to say all this...somehow.

    1. Words fail me, too, Abby. Sort of. But, somehow...

  2. Its been widely reported that B.O. said: "If I Had A Son, He Would Look Like Trayvon"

    I could swear that I also heard him say: "If I Had A City It Would Look Like Detroit"!

    1. Down Low DOES have a city... It's DETROIT! And there you have it... eternal Hell with all the fire and brimstone wherever The Chosen One slithers

  3. I wonder what excuses the DemocRATS will come up with for this mess? Perhaps Enema will provide some enlightenment. Hey, for all we know she/he/it actually lives there!

    1. We can only hope Enema lives there, John. Personally, I think Enema is probably pretty high up on the 'Gimme' chain and can afford to be the idiot who Enema is.

      How about it, Enema? Would that be a PIIING (as if we could expect a truthful answer.)

  4. Perhaps it would benefit the State of Michigan or even the US, at large, to just ceed Detroit to the Japanese. But then why would they want it?

    1. Well, you've seen what they've done with Ground Zero at Hiroshima.

  5. I have it from a reliable source that the Japanese aren't interested in this piece of real-estate so here's another idea. Why not cordon it off and create a sort of monument/theme park dedicated to: Socialism, Communisim, the Democrat Party and all other manner of wealth re-distribution. While this legacy would remain in tact, as it presently exists, it could be embellished with statues memorializing the "movers and shakers" who made it all possible. Such could include but not be limited to: Karl Marx,Walter Reuther, Jimmy Hoffa, Michael Moore, Sam Webb as well as all of the mayors who have served in the last 60 years, or so. Just imagine the exciting guided tours and actual encounters with real time natives. Unlike the class trip that I attended in 1960 when we got to see [production] in process at Dearborn, students , along with their unionized teachers, will be able to marvel at the results of what they are being taught today. Well, I just see endless possibilities; it's time to act-NOW!

  7. Gutfeld suggested today that we turn Detroit over to the illegal aliens. Well, I don't think any Mexicans would want to live in Detroit, even if it was free, but the tens of thousands of illegal Mohammedans might.

  11. And WHO pays for the erection and upkeep on this Leftist Disneyland, JB and Kid? Knowing full well that the multitudes that you're talking about entertaining wouldn't pay a nickel to watch a piss ant put out a bale of hay.

    ReplyDelete
  12. M4E, You, I and JonBerg pay for this failure as we pay for all failures.

    PS M4E, have you tried taking the word verify off? You don't get anons posting here and frankly I haven't even got any spam on my blog in months. fwiw.... I don't require anything but do not allow anons to comment either.

    1. I started out with word verification off, Kid. It was going pretty good for awhile and I didn't use it. Then, I started getting hit with real spam (nonsensical lines of text, paragraphs from books, someone saying how great the post was and visit them at 'Vacuum Cleaners R Us' -- you know the drill. My iPhone was dinging constantly with the stuff coming here.

      I don't care about the true 'Anonymous' guy telling me to get bent cause he/she/it? doesn't like what's on my post. Big deal. Sometimes it's INSPIRATIONAL. It was that other stuff that was driving me crazy.

      I HATE using the word verify on my posting as much as I hate it on the other guy's! But what are ya gonna do?

      I'll turn it off and see what happens. If you see it up again, you'll know why.

      Delete
    2. M4E, Thank you. Sir! Understood Sir!
      I won't bring it up again.

      It's interesting though, I just checked again for the 1st time in months and not a single spam meg. Other than the anon, no idea what the difference might be, but I'm sure we're not interested in tacking it down. If you get bugged again, so be it.

      And on the phone, that'd be a special class of annoying.

    3. "SIR?!"

      What's this 'Sir' crap?!

      Do I look like a fucking invalid?!

    4. Well!

      Had I know you felt that way, I would never have emailed you all those naked pictures of Enema.

    No, you are so good you will best that so good it will make our heads spin! I can't wait!

  14. JonBerg, I will endeavour to live up to your most gracious assessment.

  15. Detroit proves yet again that Progressivism is a consummate failure. The Left, of course, will continue to deny the truth even as the truth slaps them in the face. The failure of Detroit is being blamed on whitey: the failure of Detroit is due to white flight. PFFFFFFT!

    ReplyDelete
  16. AOW makes a good point. The problem in Detroit was that all those white people living there did not have the courage to have a conversation about race. Those silly bastards would rather move away than be shot to death outside their homes by a black looking for some pocket change ... you know, to buy skittles and iced tea. Damn white folk. Besides, not a damn one of them looked like Barack Obama. So fuck them.

    1. You know what's strange? I've never seen ANYBODY that looks like Barack Obamarammalammadingdong (thank you, Lord, for that!)

      Well, except for a few comedians (black and WHITE) that satirize the douche bag, Bathhouse Barry.

      'White Flight' because of lack of courage to have a conversation about race or because of catching on to five decades of Democratic control of government?

      Uhhh... wait a minute... isn't that what's happening to our nation now? And no place to run.

      So, it comes down to the two things that I was taught:
      1) When in doubt -- lock and load.
      2) Empty the magazine.

  17. I heard Detroit had 1.5 million not too many years ago and now has something like 500,000...big loss in tax dollars.
    I do know that most of the mayors have been Democrats. anyway, since 1962 TILL TODAY, they have been Democrats. Pretty typical, huh?

    ReplyDelete
  18. While I seldom post the same comment on different sites (in this case on AOW),I thought this one would fit here and any revision would just be tantamount to "re-inventing the wheel".

    Well, here's another one; Gary Indiana. This is what happens when unions become so powerful that any sembalence of a work ethic disappears while wages inflate beyond any real value added. I know this because I lived there and worked there. Democrats have been running this city since, at least, 1943. Do I really need to mention which party runs the unions? Please check-out this link.

    1. Could happen. AND there are a lot more democrat diseased cities just waiting in the wings to climb on the bail out train.

      We think the same about this one M4E. The banks, the unions, and now every POS thieving entity known to man or beast. We may have to pay for.

      And how many people have a clue.

    2. And how many people have a clue? Evidently, not the majority.

    1. JonBerg, Yep, I grew up in Pittsburgh, I could look out my bedroom window at Neville Island.

      We played on those tracks as kids, used the pig iron balls headed to the mills as slingshot ammo.
      I saw them tear down the miles long J&L Steel plant and others. It's a new world, and much of it will be torn down.

      On the other hand, some foreign companies are opening plants in the US. I don't see this country raising its middle class anytime soon though. Not with the debt load and all the parasites going exponential.

    1. I wish I could have known your grandfather. Back in the old days (which really hasn't been that long ago,) the people were coming here to be AMERICANS. They weren't necessarily shedding their heritage, but neither were they trying to impose it on their new-found home.

  23. So offering you a great deal on Detroit property would be a waste of my time, huh? Damn.

    Also, Carol ... I think Danish women are HOT.

  25. Build a HUGE wall around that shithole, and I do mean HUGE. Then let the fucking towel heads build themselves a mosque in there while at the same time putting the wrecking ball to every other one in the country. If they want their fucking sharia law, let them--ONLY within the wall. In a matter of a year or so, they will almost all have killed each other off. Oh, and did I mention that there will be NO DOORS OR ROADS in or out. Just don't tell them that it is actually our newest version of gitmo.

  26. Well now, it's happened; the AFOL-CIO is [demanding] that tax payers bail this $#!t#ole out. I say let them, the AFOL-CIO bail it out. They caused the problem!
