Is honoring Commie presidents in a statute somewhere?
Is the bankruptcy a county, state or federal issue when it comes to cities?
I guess she doesn’t understand the concept that bankruptcy helps the city, rather than facing thousands of creditor lawsuits and the ultimate liquidation of city assets.
Aqualina was bad even back when I was at MSU
They said if I voted for Romney, the country would be in the hands of a bizarre cult worshiping a ludicrous god, and they were right!
maybe she is just an idiot
It is unconstitutional not to have even a prayer of getting enough money to pay your debts.
Is her remedy to have the police bring in all those deadbeats who live in the city limits who haven’t turned over everything they own to the city?
We are led by idiots.
I will admit that in my ‘drinking’ years (ended 1990) I probably was the victim (not my real choice of words) of far too many BRAIN CELLS being destroyed by alcohol.
I used to comment “I lost more brain cells to alcohol than YOU ever possessed or will ever posses”.
I really stand by that statement and figure after 20 some years I have probably ‘regrown’ those that I lost.
That said, what am I missing here?
WE are the bad guys. Not those that spent like no tomorrow, who failed to see any warning signs etc.
Don’t know if you are following what is happening in DC now inre Walmart BUT don’t these IDIOTS realize that if Walmart is to have to virtually pay time and one half for the first 40 hours, the cost will be absorbed in the price of the product?
I realize BO Care has virtually wiped out OVERTIME in most cases but doesn’t anyone run numbers to see the outcome?
Good example of DC is gas prices. Usually considerably higher than MD and much much higher than VA.
The inmates are definitely running the asylum as people LEAVE the District to purchase gas and cigarettes and people from the suburbs come to DC to purchase booze. Now Walmart will be stuck with 3 to 6 stores in the District and those with the means will go to the suburbs to shop (like they do now) and the ones that will be taking it in the shorts ‘AGAIN’, are the poor that are trapped there and more or less unable to afford Walmart as it is.
Just hearing that DC Council says if Walmart leaves THEY will propose raising the minimum wage.
WILL SOMEONE SEND THE IDJITS IN DC SOME FILM OF DETROIT?
Do those IDJITS really believe that the ‘main office’ and Corporate ABSORB all the extra money they are demanding.
Like Rush says “IF 25 per hour is a good min wage, why not 100”? Where do you draw the line.
When the shift guy that cleans the parking lot at Mickey D’s is receiving 30 per hour, you are not allowed to complain when the plain hamburger is costing 9 bucks each or more.....
there are a lot of judges who became judges because they were too incompetent to be private attorneys
Does she have an altar set up in her chambers for worshiping his Horribleness?
Wonder what movie I’ll wake up into tomorrow? Sure hate this one.
might be just an idiot. Those two go together.... being an idiot and putting all your money in Detroit Municipal Bonds...
in the new amerika it is every taxpayers problem
ince Obama has no honor, he can’t be dishonored
“This some sort of satire?”
My first thought was this was an article from the Onion.
Confirmation we’re under Dictatorship. Soon we’ll be seeing posters of 0bama in all public places.
Bankruptcy is a Federal Statute, and I seriously doubt this would work, even if done.
...just as I was respecting the all-female jury in the Zimmerman case.
She offered her honor.
He honored her offer.
And all through the night it was honor and offer.
I know hes [Obama] watching this, she said, predicting the president ultimately will have to do something to make sure existing city workers pension agreements are honored.
The only reason for which Obama might "save them" is that SEIU is going to be PO'ed at him otherwise.
But frankly, my dear, Obama doesn't give a damn. He got what he wanted out of Detroit, and now he's on the move again. He might throw a sop to his homies, but as for the city, he's a combination of too dumb and too arrogant to either know or care what to do about this.
Another bug-eyed goofball dem.
Its also not honoring the (United States) president, who took (Detroits auto companies) out of bankruptcy.
Well, now we know what the position of ACORN/SEIU is...
but he was a community organizer surely if there was anyone who could save detroit it would be him i bet he could really help just by selling I AM TRAYVON hoodies with his picture on it...
Obama has no honor therefore you can’t dishonor him!
True, but unlike Detroit NYC has cash flow.
I can’t believe that it isn’t! Obama should be more embarrassed by this blatant show of judicial bias and legislating from the bench. It only shows the kind of dictatorship that this fool is running.
We are more and more screwed each and every day.
When asked about the Judge’s ruling, Chief Justice John Roberts took a quick look at his blackberry and said “I find...her...ruling...to be...sound.” He then hurried back into the Supreme Court Building, where witnesses said he threw up.
I saw this headline earlier and was so disgusted, then just now my son informed of the judges name and I laughed out loud.
I remember this woman from gradeschool, we are the same age and were in at least one class together in around the 7th grade or so. Her father is/was a doctor who practiced in Saginaw. He once told me that he was a Socialist but voted Democrat because that was the next best thing, and the Socialist Party in this country was a joke that would never win an election.
Have you read the stupid stuff Obama said today? What he wants to do, since even Holder has decided that it would be pointless to charge Zimmerman, is stir up his base.
“I could have been Trayvon 35 years ago...” Yeah, right, if Martin had grown up in the lap of white luxury.
He’s calling for a hot weekend. He’s despicable.
Valerie Jarret has spoken and said no a bailout for Detroit.
This “judge” must be a real idiot.
—Its also not honoring the (United States) president, who took (Detroits auto companies) out of bankruptcy.—
I must’ve been asleep that day in school when they taught that the City of Detroit actually owned General Motors.
6:00 am. "They say we're young and we don't know, and won't find out until-l-l we grow....
I read the whole thing.
so its cheating she said. would that be just like the cheating by Obama when he had gm default on its obligations to bond holders?
Cherly you jest
Fine, let them sit there with no money and no bankruptcy protection. What happens? City “workers” not paid. Gas runs out - no deliveries. Telecommunication cut off. City services, such as they are, grind to a halt. Police walk off the job. Welfare payments not made. Sounds like a good time to pop some corn, kick back, and watch the show.
Lol, thanks I needed a laugh amidst this bs. At this point, if I don’t laugh I just might cry.
Last time I checked 0bama is not a god ....
I feel like the only adult at the puppet show. How can the media ignore things like this that happen on an everyday basis in favor of the race baiting Trayvon story?
Todays presser only confirms that this whole house of cards soon to fall.POS is doing anything he can to make sure people don’t concentrate on the real issues.
I've been trying to wake up from this nightmare since November 2008...
This “Here come the judge” judge is out of luck in sending Obama a copy of her order. He can’t read.
Perfect counterpoint to the total destruction of a once great American city.
