13 Detroit mayoral candidates sound off during televised debate ["Conservatives want city jewels"]
FOX2 Detroit ^ | Jul 30, 2013 | Taryn Asher

Posted on 07/31/2013 8:08:34 AM PDT by kevcol

Things got heated when they started speaking about the emergency manager and whether they could work with him. Candidate Krystal Crittendon came out and said she would not.

"I am going to say something that you will not hear my running mates say. If elected, I will fire Kevyn Orr," Crittendon said.

"How would you fire him when he doesn't report to you without creating chaos in the city?" she was asked.

"If you don't think that there is chaos now, you haven't been paying attention. The emergency manager right now cannot do anything in city government if the employees who are appointed by the mayor and respond to the mayor do not allow him to do it," Crittendon responded.

"The law is the law, and we are obliged to follow the law. How are you going to fire somebody and you don't have the authority?
.
.
There were a lot of jabs from Tom Barrow, who called himself Mayor Bing 2.0.

"Conservatives want the city's jewels and to bust our unions, privatize city functions and steal our pensions. Resolute I have been strong against them. Before you are the faces of those conservatives masquerading here as objective panelists," he said at one point.

Detroit mayor candidate Krystal Crittendon

...as for Tom Barrow, another quote: "No my fellow Detroiters, you must never stop resisting for now Detroit, we will be given a Master…makes no difference the color of the face in front of you, for behind that face is the true Master. No my fair minded fellow Detroiters everywhere, while I am saddened, I am also angry for we are being falsely oppressed based upon a phony…faux…non-existent fiscal emergency rooted in an unjust law which is nothing short of a Jim Crowesque abuse of law."

Bunch of morons. The GOP has protected those "jewels" from being stolen by you. These idiots are like crack addicts who don't want you to buy them a meal, they want a blank check instead.

Sorry Tom and Krystal, Detroit and all it's occupants have had a Plantation Master for a Century now, it's the DemoKKKrat party plantation with the DemoKKKrat Master de jure that you willingly serve.

You can't fix stupid, Tom and Krystal.

Detroit and the political establishment reaction has the makings of the best unreality show ever.
I have seen several Detroit city “leaders” on TV and they are funnier than anything Hollywood could ever produce.
Is anyone filming this? Please, please say YES.

I’m confused. Is this the same Tom Barrow that once sounded quite coherent back when he took on Coleman Young in the mayor’s race? Has he since gone crazy?

The only cure for DetROT is to sign a 50 year lease with the Chi-Coms to make it a special administrative region like Hong Kong in return for debt reduction.

As a condition of that lease, they have to keep all the inhabitants who can continue to elect their looting politicians while the ChiComs actually administer the place.

Detroit residents are not allowed to vote in U.S. national or Michigan elections, only local, for the duration of the lease.

In a backhanded way, I agree. Screw it... no bankruptcy action, no bailout, no restructuring of debt, no NOTHING. Let that garish, POS eyesore go to sh*t like it so richly deserves. Just put a big wall around it. Eff 'em all.

If we had a decent US Attorney general we could fix Detroit virtually overnight by locking city hall down and seizing all records. The corruption is incredible and right out in the open.

Detoilet needs to crumble and fail under its own weight, as a stinking, rotting reminder of the “fruits” of liberal governance.

People are buying cheap property in Detroit thinking once the bankruptcy is over things will improve. But the biggest thing wrong with Detroit are the people who live there, and they aren’t going anywhere.

We had a blowhard like that get elected here as County Executive. Thought he could stop a court ordered reassessment by ordering his employees, including the head of the Real Estate bureau, not to cooperate with it.

A brief head-smacking by a judge and a court order seizing direct supervision of that bureau by the court set his mind right.

What jewels?

What pensions? There is no money left. You gave away their pensions to the unions and other graft

But the biggest thing wrong with Detroit are the people who live there, and they aren’t going anywhere.

The problem is too many tax cuts for the consumers of city resources.

If people were charged a tax proportional to the burden they put on the city, the dead weight would have been evicted long ago.

Instead the city taxed the producers and gave a free ride to the consumers and government employees.

Well we used to have special administrative regions -- they were called states.

Now statehood means nothing.

Detroit could have survived had the citizens believed they still had control of their city and the state that gave them that power.

But the loss of state's rights, and the de facto takeover of cities and towns by the Federal government during the 60s meant the unruly parts of Detroit could no longer be contained. The city of Detroit was legislatively stolen from the people of Detroit and handed over to the worst elements.

They would if all welfare benefits were turned off within the borders of Detroit, and you had to leave Detroit to get any.

Reminds me of the DC mayoral race. A bunch of machine democrats sitting around telling everyone about how they offer “change” and how they will clean-up the city government. Then they all brag about how they’re going to spend the speed camera money, which is probably the biggest single contributor to the city coffers.
