Detroit Wants Its Obama Bacon
The Rush Limbaugh Show ^ | 5 December 2012 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 12/05/2012 6:37:45 PM PST by COBOL2Java

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: You gotta hear this. Grab sound bite number one. This is JoAnn Watson at a city council meeting last night in Detroit. They had a talk, conversation, or meeting about Detroit's financial crisis. And this is the council member, JoAnn Watson...

WATSON: After the election of Jimmy Carter, the honorable Coleman Alexander Young, he went to Washington, DC, and he came back home with some bacon.

WOMAN: All right!

COUNCIL: Mmm-hmm!

WATSON: That's what you do. That's what you do! This is a... Our people in an overwhelming way supported the reelection of this president, and there ought to be a quid pro quo and you ought to exercise leadership on that.

RUSH: Yeah. So basically she's saying, "Obama, bail us out. We voted for you, dude. Bail us out. There's gotta be a quid pro quo. The old mayor, Coleman Young, he went to Washington and he came back home with some bacon. Well, we want some bacon. We want some pork." So the city council in Detroit is asking for an Obama bailout, and people get righteously indignant when you say that Obama is Santa Claus.

When you say that people voted for Obama because he's Santa Claus.

Here's JoAnn Watson admitting it.

Well gee JoAnn, maybe you should have asked for that bacon up front cause he don’t need you any more.

BTW Seems that you owe taxes.

If this was 1988...she might have gotten some pork from the government. But since there’s 500 cities in America in serious decline and suffering....you just don’t dare open up the door and admit you got free money to hand out.

I’m tired of even maintaining this facade that this parasite or its ilk have any role in America (past, present, or future); our livestock mean more than them.

Illinois and California will get the gravy way before Motown. Illinois already has sent up the trial baloon of having Baraq bail out the astoundingly ($83 bil) underfunded state pension system.

They’re going to get some bacon but it will be Canadian bacon in the form of a new bridge because Canada needs it and Detroit is in the way.

Canada is paying for the bridge and will collect the tolls but there will be a lot of jobs created to build it and there will be needed freight infrastructure on this side of the river. Looks like we’re going to become a right to work state sooner rather than later and that will help Detroit whether they like it or not.

Think about it. What would Laredo be like without that major freight crossing? Detroit is second only to Laredo in cargo crossing the border. (Around 1.5 million trucks per year now)

Unfortunately, that is EXACTLY how tens of millions of people who voted for Obama think.

And they now outnumber the producers.

MAXINE on the election:

It seems that once again all us white folks have missed a great opportunity.

While the Blacks and Mexican people attended Obama's campaign rallies, we should have broken into their homes and gotten all our shit back.**

Entrenched minority bloc: “Give us our Obama stuff!”

Public-sector unions: “Give us more tax money!”

Politicians: “Just keep electing us and we’ll give you whatever you want!”

Everyone wants their pockets lined as long as it involves stealing from someone else. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but ***Ra’s al Ghul is right***.

(Hint: movie reference)

Yep, those guys are entirely brazen. Help was offered in the form of an emergency manager, but that meant eliminating the corruption and crony politics.

Detroit proceeded to mount a ballot initiative to stop the effective help, succeeds in torpedoing it, and since it will now go bankrupt, wants a handout to keep the corruption and chaos alive for a little while longer.

Please don’t blame the rest of the state for Detroit. We did, you know, elect a good governor. Simply dismantling the old unlimited cash welfare has fundamentally changed the state for the better.

The rest of the state could do themselves and the other “56” states a favor, and also vote to allocate Electoral College votes by each Congressional District instead of a statewide winner-take-all.

Michigan would become a battleground state for real, and if the trend continued rural portions of other states like Illinois, Pennsylvania and Ohio might go the same way.
