Well thank you LLS. Best set of Clift Notes available on the current frothing of our media; both Lame and Main.
In further news FOX needs to replace Wallace until he gets his meds regulated. His ‘fever to be liked’ by the administration is still uncontrolled. Probably hereditary, from his dad’s side.
Oh my goodness I clicked onto the FreeRepublic icon and up it came with NO Sunday talk show thread.
I sit quiet and ponder if I should start one, what happened to AB, why is this loser Trayvon in the news all the time?
So I had to REFRESH my browser, goodness Pat, get a clue.
Good morning AB, All.
As always, thank you AB for doing this thread.
It’s been a week here what with me taking on the local Republican party and the Emperor of planning and zoning here in Sussex county. Below my story, if you get a moment please read. Read the comments as well if time.
ON A MISSION-Read how one woman is taking on Sussex County and the all powerful bureaucrats.
Was on the radio yesterday...almost two hours devoted to my story! I was one for a half an hour, it’s called the “Pat Fish story”. IT was great, with my daughter listening and impressed with her Mom. Daughter lives across the street from me now, in case not known.
Also am speaking before the Sussex county session this coming Tuesday, in the Circle, at 10 am. As a result of my radio show there is promised, (but who knows?) a large turnout over this because if an unelected bureaucrat can tear down your fence, dig up your well, demolish your shed, all without you having a single input, a single defense, then forget the national scene. We are slaves on a local level.
I intend to win this battle.
Here’s my question....why don’t one of the elected Repubs made a statement that it is inappropriate for the Justice department to further investigate George Zimmerman, that it is, de facto, double jeopardy?
Why don’t the head of the national GOP declare it inappropriate for the President to insert himself into court cases, that he should respect our rule of law?
I once again assert, it isn’t President Obama that’s the problem; he takes a stand with vigor, dag I almost admire him.
HE HAS NO OPPOSITION PARTY!!!
That’s the problem.
Only a rat judge can save the day and try and let ozero off the hook gently as the valjar regime will decide whether or not to to save union pensions while letting the rest of the 700k people left in detroit just go to hell.
Over a million people voted with their feet and left in a city that once had the highest per capita earnings in the country. Now we see what unchecked liberalism will do to a once capitalistic built city on the hill now in the pits of hell.
Kind of like liberals who keep saying the US is the richest country in the world, since in their fantasy world borrowing money from everybody and anybody and printing worthless paper money to pretend the deficit is down must be indicators of wealth.
If liberals would limit the indulgence of their fantasies to internet porn and not interfere in the real world, everybody would be better off. And much happier.
Whoa! Wallace is actually confronting Donna Edwards, D(Socialist-Communist) of Takoma Park, with statistics of black crime.
Mayor Bing doesn’t want to make the bankruptcy of Detroit a black-white issue. [Georgie tried.] The mayor says it is a green issue. [He meant $$$, not solar — hmmm — maybe he did mean solar, because he could get some Obama bailout money for solar failures.]
Detroit’s population has reduced to 1903 levels of 700,000.
At its heyday, it has around 2 million population.
Lucky duck! We have had nothing but rain every day for the last 7,000 days,its getting old.Key West is up 12 inches this month alone.All this and "no" hurricanes.
LOL!! There you go holding back again....
Yes, and then the CBC racist-retard kept coming back with how her sons were being watched in stores.
People stereotype for a reason.
in the Hope that I may somehow arouse my own people to envy and save some of them. Rom 11:14
While Obama was spewing on last election, how he saved Detroit and Romney would have let it collapse we have finally seen what all of those Trillions got them. His centrally planned economy which chose the winners and losers according to who was an ally and who was not sees its first major bankruptcy. All of those union goon jobs for General Motors have just hit the skids and another communist utopia is now dead. There of course will be more money spent to save this economic wasteland, but in the end it is over for the home of the American dream.
After forty years of Democrat machine rule with the help from the fatcat unions we have seen the Paris of the West turn into a victim of Parasites. This was a town where hard working men were turning out some of the best cars in the world with all of the creativity and power everyone could enjoy. They fed an insatiable appetite for sexy cars and freedom to travel wherever their hearts desired. This drove the communists crazy that people could enjoy themselves without government control as well as industrialists becoming wealthy making the auto industry a huge target. Communists hate freedom and profits like vampires hate sunlight.
The socialist party members made the auto industry enemy number one inventing dangers of driving and the car became an evil polluter of the air and water. We heard about how it caused lead in the air and made poor Black kids retarded from living near freeways even though they were never able to document one case. For the past ten years cars have been targeted by the Global Warming fraudsters which has not only forced the makers to build smaller less desirable cars, but have attacked the fossil fuel industry driving the cost of gas higher.
The communists who run this country should be breaking out the Champaign and caviar tonight as they have reached an important mile post in their journey to destroy America. After fifty years of vilifying their hated auto industry the President put on the finishing touches with his closing down the domestic oil exploration and increasing the MPG averages to impractical levels. Add to that, taking out the CEOs who knew the auto industry and replacing them with Party hacks was the final nails in the coffin of the industry and the tax base for Detroit.
Five years ago Obama came into office and decided the unions should own GM and Chrysler rather than the bond and stockholders. He poured untold dollars into the companies as a graft machine for the DNC as those dollars went to the unions and then to the public sector and back to the DNC campaigns. The money was also used to fill those empty pension tanks that were hit from the stock market collapse as well as the union borrowing to fund the DNC. So basically our money was poured into a money pit and all those academic idiots thought they could run the company found out they could not. They found and are still finding central planning is a detriment to the market and what was once a giant profit engine is now a money pit. Now that engine isnt propelling Detroit or its corruption and the city is turned upside down as a byproduct of liberal destruction.
To make things worse for those Detroit peasants, Obama has declared war on coal powered generation so their power bills are going to double or triple. He has already ordered the EPA to shut down as many coal powered plants as possible forcing the costs up and making life even more miserable for those people living in the city. It is also going to raise the prices for the city as they try to light the streets and heat their buildings in the zero degree winters. Why should he care about a few million poor Blacks in Detroit who will take a disproportionate weight of this burden when he has a country to bankrupt? The only thing colder than a Detroit January is President Obamas heart. In his twisted mind he is getting Whitey and bankrupting another evil capitalistic stronghold. More cities and states are going to succumb to Detroits fate. As these cities continue to lock up their resources and industry just like Michigan has seen, the unemployment rates will stay artificially high. By targeting the auto industry the liberal communists were able to put roadblocks at every corner and force the company to put out products the public didnt want culminating in the Chevy Volt. These environmental zealots also put all sorts of regulations on the companies driving them out of business or at least out of Detroit to a friendlier state. They were forced to make smaller and smaller cars even though the profit was in larger luxury cars which people wanted, but the planners didnt. The District of Corruption wanted them riding on mass transit trains and not in the hated cars.
The final wound of course was the unions and their bloated benefits packages. There was no way to make a car profitably when the unions were able to keep their pensions and wages which were by far the highest in the industry. Labor is a giant expense in the production and this one was a killer. Detroit essentially has the same problem as their public employee union pensions make up 18 Billion of the 21 Billion of debt and why it filed for bankruptcy protection. These are going to be the issue that will make or break the city.
Why is public sector debt more sacred than private sector jobs? These agreements were made without a representative for the people who are stuck with the debt so it was never an honest negotiation. You had the corrupt SEIU negotiating with the corrupt politicians they bought with nobody looking out for the taxpayer. This is an unholy trinity as the unions negotiate for higher wages and benefits with the politicians who are told they will get more campaign cash as bribes from those unions if they raise those wages. There is only one group who is not in this trinity and that is the taxpayers who are left holding the debt for these so called agreements. These agreements should be torn up and cut by 25% if not more to put the fiscal house in order or face the consequences of losing them completely due to bankruptcy.
Detroit is now the communist utopia they want for all of America. The people are now at the mercy of the Obama regime which is what their dream always was. Detroit people are now living in that Soviet shared misery where the Outer Circle struggles to survive while the Inner Circle lives in a life of luxury and expansive vacations while droning on about being part of the workers. These Midwest cities will begin collapsing like dominoes as one after another is bankrupted due to their connection with the auto industry and unions. They will see their energy and gas bills as well s food pricing spiking as they become more and more enslaved to the Federal masters. Detroit is now a communist state and misery is its lifestyle.
Pray for America to Wake Up
Sorry, I was busy all day yesterday and forgot to send it to AB.
That's because almost no one showed up for the protests. It's hard to arrest someone, when there's no one there.
He was afraid he would be asked which Rev Wright sermon he took his examples of a black man’s experience from.
It’s so obvious to those of us with working brains....
....soon Baltimore will be bankrupt and I can see it coming.
The elected politicians of the era cave and give the unions what they want. They do this over and over and over. The elected guys don’t care, they figger they’ll be long gone before time comes to pay up.
What’s to debate? That city corrupted itself into bankruptcy, it ain’t rocket science.
Cause for sure the federal gubmint won’t come in to bail out Detroit, right? For sure our elected guys will rant and rave if such an action is proposed, right? America’s House holds the strings for the budget, right? These guys are strong and determined, surely they won’t bail out a dying city that killed itself, right?
Did you intercept the WH morning email LLS?
Gave a great speech Friday night at the 912 project and we got some volunteers to come out and help us with our petition yesterday. We are changing Oregon.
Pray for America
It was such a pitiful exercise in activism.
I can now say, with pride, that last week I was right.
My comment on last week’s thread was to the effect that I knew many, many black people, now and throughout my life. Once worked five years at a Baltimore inner-city hospital-Liberty Medical Center for those from round my area.
Also taught writing at night school right here in Sussex and had many black students.
My experience is that these were hard working people and I could never get my mind around any notion that those black people I knew would get out and riot. The vast majority of black folk in this country are struggling to live and thrive, like most white folk, never mind the constant race-baiting.
Those “protestors”...they were pathetic, paid crap-holders boosted by the President’s contribution to the alleged race war.
Sorry yon readers, I really don’t think America bought it.
Y’all know if it weren’t for Obama inserting himself into this matter this Zimmerman case would never have seen the light of Republican day?
FACE THE NATION (CBS): House Speaker John Boehner
STATE OF THE UNION (CNN): Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.;
The whole “take over the Republican Party” or “take back the Republican Party” thing ain’t gonna happen. The blue state big money and the likes of Boner and McChurian hold all the cards.
Otherwise, you are doomed to “looking forward” to the big Jeb Bush v. Hillary Rodham Rodham Rodham 2016 showdown—aka Puke City.
