    Who are the NERD fund donors Mr Snyder?

    Raise the curtain.

    This is what happens when you treat Detroit City Government with kid gloves.

    It's been long reported here by myself and other writers the tragedy that has befallen, what was at one time, a very beautiful and thriving metropolis within the State of Michigan, before the democrats had taken over.

    After that sea-change event had occurred, the you-know-what hit the fan.

    Dependency on government assistance shot up at an exponential rate.

    Democratic "leaders" succeeded in polarizing residents based upon race.

    The public school system reported an astounding 25% rate. As in the number of students who have successfully graduated. I'm not even going to mention those 25% who cannot even actually read or write, yet were still given a diploma anyway.

    People became accustomed to electing corrupt and inept leadership at the school board, city and county level.

    Taxes began to creep up. Then they began to pile up on one another.

    Those who had the means (read: the producing class), packed their bags and left town. Some just plain skipped the bag packing part and simply left.

    Those corrupt and inept elected officials were finding it progressively difficult even managing a simple budget.

    Oh, but it gets even better.

    {Story continues after the fold.}

    As more and more money went "missing", Detroit was finding out that it could no longer provide basic services. After borrowing more than it could ever hope to repay, Detroit was in real danger of bankruptcy.

    A "consent agreement" was hammered out and implemented, despite the kicking and screaming of a very vocal cadre of race-baiting democratic "leaders" who had the chutzpa to demand even more from Michigan Taxpayers, the audacity to compare the agreement to slavery, and the arrogance to complain that city "jewels" were being stolen in the process.

    Now, it's time: fit, meet shan.

    After a long year of a rising number of homicides, assaults, and a number of other crimes that cannot be adequately described on a family-friendly website; the Detroit Police Department itself is even throwing in the towel.

    Citing the loss of manpower (and growing) in contrast to the rising number, not rate, of crimes, coupled with the length of their duty shifts brought on as a result of budgetary incompetence, the Detroit Police Officer Association is warning visitors who come to Detroit: "Enter At Your Own Risk".

    No, I'm not making that last part up.

    Okay, now things have now officially gone from bad to aight!

    This is from a city that does this to a Google Street View camera.

    Brinker and Robinwood

    Ironically at the same home a 17-month old girl was found dead in a closet earlier.

    I guess that Gov. Snyder won't take me up now on my offer of a personally guided tour of Detroit (and not the "touristy" areas).

    Look, not aggressively showing any real decisiveness from the beginning has now made a bad problem unmanageable. I'm talking a cross between "Revolution", "Jericho" and "Escape from New York" unmanageable.

    Local resources are no longer up to the task, which will lead to a greater drain on state finances.

    And the year isn't done yet...

    I'm not at all impressed with the LEO goonion pulling their bullsh!t when they've been handed everything on a silver platter for decades.  They chose that lowbrow source of income, and now behave just as the inhabitants they allege to protect: Moochers and Looters.

    Snyder's obsequious consent with Detoilet can only be viewed in a positive light by the Go Team mentality that is the feckless MI-GOP.

    AND, let's talk "jewels"...

    Gov. Rick Snyder announced Saturday the launch of the $12.8 million project to transform the abandoned Globe Trading Co. Building near the east Detroit riverfront into the Outdoor Adventure and Discovery Center.

    "I want everyone to remember what that looks like today," said Snyder during a press conference at Milliken State Park, gesturing across the street to the abandoned warehouse. "So when we come back and see what it looks like, we can see what the power of working together can do and the opportunity to reinvent Michigan and the opportunity to reinvent Detroit."

    The project, which is scheduled to begin later this year and continue through late 2013, will be a state-funded effort through the Department of Natural Resources. Most of the money to fund the project will come from the Natural Resources Trust Fund, according to the DNR.

    The goal is to "open up the outdoors in downtown Detroit," said Ron Olson, chief of the DNR's parks and recreation department. Plans for the center include ziplines, archery, rock climbing and other activities.

    Yet another Diamond on a Goat's Ass that we get to pay for.  Alas, we now learn what Affirmative Action Rodney will be staring at till next winter.  Only a dumb bastard that graduated from the same university that John Dewey infested with Trotskyism would be Progressive enough to find merit in such a waste of our coerced money.

    The more I see of this governor, the more I despise his milquetoast presence.  Jenny Granholm used to say, "we're ALL in this together".  JenniRick Snydholm says, "Reinvent".

    Ricky Fluff Nerd, you're a one term idiot.  All the latest from the above has netted you a big absentee NO VOTE on Proposal One.

    ...just so there is no misunderstanding.

    So here it is, rebroadcast in HD: I haven't changed from my original position SUPPORTING Prop 1 (and 5 & 6) and OPPOSING Prop 2 (and 3 & 4).

    This wasn't a back-door dig at Prop 2, but rather the fact that priorities are being ignored.

    Public Safety is a core function of any level of state government.

    I haven't even touched the problems faced by the DFD or the hilariously pathetic joke their EMS system is...more specifically, the equipment they send into the field.

    This has to do specifically with the DPD.

    Yes, this is part of a labor dispute. I'm not going to make any attempt to hide it. But in this case, they do make some valid arguments.

    Their job is tough enough as it is.

    The political correctness in the department overall and inability of the Command Staff to keep their pants zipped up (that alone will make one hell of a post just by itself), the boots on the ground, so to speak, the officers that you see patrolling the streets and investigating the reported cases, is a difficult and dangerous job as it is.

    I'll most likely get some flak on this, but you do have people trying to do they best job that they can do, in an impossible situation getting made harder every day by people who cannot organize a thought, much less run a city government.

    With the environment they work in and the type of people they interact with, the schedule that city hall is forcing them to work will burn everyone out over time. And in their line of work, I'm not exaggerating by saying that someone is going to get killed.

    Instead of prioritizing its spending (i.e. public safety gets first dibs on everything, then the rest of city government) this is quickly evolving into a very dangerous situation that should never have occurred in the first place had the necessary actions been taken at the beginning.

    But they weren't.

    And the final outcome isn't looking very pretty (nor cheap).

    I remember it like it was yesterday. (5.00 / 1) (#6)

    1965. A member of the Johnson administration traveled to Detroit to announce the start of the War on Poverty and the Great Society. " In years to come Detroit will be a shinning example of what can be accomplished by Liberal polices and inner-city management. In years to come this once great city will stand as a testament to what Liberalism can do when it sets it's mind to it."
    And so we have.
