I’m curious as to what the people of Detroit think caused the bankruptcy. Everyone else understands, but do they?
What I’m waiting for....
Barrak H. Obama, the former president of the United States, stood before a federal judge on Thursday and apologized for putting the people of his nation through a corruption scandal so vast that prosecutors say it helped accelerate Americas march toward bankruptcy.
Yet another Friend of Barack, feeling he deserves special privileges.
That’s exactly what my brother said - almost verbatim....
He’s just doing what they do best. Doing time.
Some do but you won’t hear from them.
The next election in Detroit is going to be kind of interesting since the state has effectively seized control of the election process and has them under a microscope with new laws. They’ll still go democrat but won’t do it with 200,000 more votes than people.
Never learn, do they? Locally in DC, some city councilmen (in addition to former Mayor Barry), the current Mayor, the County Executive of Prince Georges County that abuts DC; look to Jesse Jackson and his wife, who IIRC was a Chicago alderman, Jefferson in NOLA...on and on and on it goes.
Ex-President Sentenced to Life in Corruption Case That Helped America Go Broke
first, never elect anyone with the name “kwame”.....
Paint a target on his fat back side!
I’m concerned that without correction, the citizens of Detroit will just keep electing crooks. I’m not sure that most of them even know what happened to this guy. If we don’t find a way to educate/correct the inner-city Democrat voters, we’re just going to keep having these problems.
Yo, Kwamzy, dude. Where can I score a bag of Peruvian?
$100 even money that he’s pardoned by Obama.
Detroit Mob vs Chicago Mob.
Nuke both of them.
Well deserved justice...

Maybe so, maybe no.
The corruption of the mayor and the city council (who should ALL be in jail with him) not only skimmed off a lot of money but they also prevented new money from coming in.
Isn’t 28 years like .... WAAAY excessive for white collar crime?
The DOJ is a mob. They are the armed wing of the executive branch. Yeah, this guy is a lefty crook. But, people don’t get this for killing. This smells.
