I know how to fix this. Borrow more money.
Thats one way. Wanna know another way to make millions?
Take a few billion dollars. Invest in green energy. Pretty soon that billion dollar investment will be worth a million dollars.
Cool, huh? Obammie taught us that one.
Ever looked at Detriot of Google Maps? Entire blocks are already grass. The remainder mostly only have a few deli pared houses standing.
And HOW did that happen?
As has been pointed out since the 1970s, the wealth does not exist to pay all the pensions of all the people government was giving long term employment to.
Detroit and other big cities will crash first.
Then states like California and New York.
But it is all going to fall. Math has no mercy.
No bailouts ... keep your hands off my wallet. Let the rot in the liberal cesspool that they created.
Comment #1 from the vid: “What’s a legacy cost?”
Probably came from the SEIU pres.
Corrupt left wing government that emerged from the racial conflict of the 1960’s punctuated by the riots of 1967.
That white flight, plus extreme mismanagement of city finances, is why we've reached this point today, sad to say.
That was part of the deal. They’d get Obama re-elected and he’d make sure they all got Federal bailouts in his second term.
Once he had rolled the Republicans on the sequester and got a big tax increase and open-to-spend. But that didn’t happen, so now they’re improvising.
The riots were just the beginning.
When Coleman Young became Mayor he said something wacky and just a bit frightening every other day that sent a thousand more white families fleeing towards 8 Mile.
Here is my problem, I don’t want the citizens to get set up in our cities and bring their stupidity to us. They should have to stay there.
“Take a few billion dollars. Invest in green energy. Pretty soon that billion dollar investment will be worth a million dollars.”
Reminds me of a joke a commercial airline pilot friend tells: “Airline pilots are great at investing. They just keep investing until it’s all gone.”
“Even Detroit wont take the son & daughter....”
Here I was all this time thinking that it was just me that can’t stand those two.
That is the theater in what used to be the headquarters of United Artists.
It WAS beautiful.
