What are you going to say? Nothin', that's what. What is there to say?
This is just the socialists attempting to avoid the natural consequences of the monstrosity they have birthed and called "the New America."

Are Judges drug tested ?
This some sort of satire?
Is she that county judge that tried to cancel the bankruptcy?
If Rachel Jenteal ever gets her act together, she can grow up to become just like this judge.
I think this whore of Satan is going to get slapped down by real judges a level or two above her paygrade.
It is not possible to dishonor that which has no honor, never had any honor, and will never have any honor.
Real judges? They are all but extinct.
I really thought this was satire lol!
I know hes watching this, she said, predicting the president ultimately will have to take action to make sure existing pension commitments are honored.
If this posting was not satire, then this addlebrained judge is one of the more “it’s all about me” judges I’ve read about.
Just have Bernanke and Lew create a few billion extra electronic Baraqqi minibucks and send them to Motown.
Everybody will be happy.
Do it “for the children” of Detroit.....
Democrats are a curse on this nation.
With rumors it was eminent Thursday afternoon, attorneys representing the pension boards hurried into Aquilinas court in Lansing to ask for a temporary restraining order.
But Snyder and Orr beat them by a few minutes. Aquilina,
informed by phone, allowed the pension board lawyers to revise their restraining order request, then granted it.
Prior to her ruling on Friday, the judge criticized the Snyder administration and Attorney Generals Office over its hasty move to outflank pension board attorneys.
Its cheating, sir, and its cheating good people who work, the judge told assistant Attorney General Brian Devlin. Its also not honoring the (United States) president, who took (Detroits auto companies) out of bankruptcy.
Aquilina said she would make sure President Obama got a copy of her order.
Yes. She is saying that the Michigan State Constitution bars Detroit from filing bankruptcy. I predict that the federal bankruptcy court will tell her to pound sand, because state laws cannot trump federal laws, and the federal bankruptcy code permits municipal bankruptcies. (Actually, federal law puts a number of conditions on municipal bankruptcies, and there is a possibility that Detroit's filing won't qualify, but if so, it will be because Detroit didn't satisfy the requirements of federal law, not because of the Michigan Constitution.)
(Reuters) - Detroit’s historic municipal bankruptcy filing on Thursday came less than 10 minutes before lawyers for the city’s pension funds and retirees had rushed to another court to try to block it.
The bare bones bankruptcy petition, which came at 4:06:22 p.m., blindsided everyone in the room, according to two lawyers who were in state court in Lansing, Michigan, at the time. Even the lawyer representing the governor and the judge were caught unaware.
