I think these cuts are great, though they have the effect of destroying one of the last groups of viable consumers in the area. I wish they would cut more quickly here in NJ; Governor Christie is doing a good job, but we still have too many of these costly parasites sucking us dry.

Attempting to give a damn...

Detroit City bus driver gets an extended lap dance while driving his bus with passengers on it! They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but in this case the video says it all. The bus driver gets suspended after a passenger captures this Kodak moment and forwards it to the department of transportation.
These are 2,566 “ghost” workers on the Detroit city payroll? Will they still vote Democrat? Of course. Even the dead vote Donkey in Detroit.
I am so thankful to be in Tennessee, where the dems actually want to waste our surplus this year. Thank God we hold the majority here. Democrats are some of the most narrow-minded of all the critters. All they want is more power over the purse strings. They don’t care whether the programs work or not.
