Detroit City Councilwoman believes Obama should bail out Detroit because they voted for Obama

Apparently Detroit is getting desperate for cash and one city councilwoman believes Obama should bail out Detroit because they voted for him:

I know what happened. I bet this councilwoman has been getting advice from the Obamaphone woman. Ha!

But really, bailouts just keep irresponsible people from actually fixing their problems. That’s why the stimulus didn’t work because it was in effect a bailout for state governments who had budget issues. The GM bailouts didn’t work either because the company eventually had to file bankruptcy anyway, under the leadership of the White House that had given them 2 bailouts.

But hey, when you aren’t spending your money you don’t care where it comes from – which is why we are in the shape we are in.

  • I have a horrible feeling deep in the pit of my stomach that NObama may well bail out Detroit and any other failing Libtard city/state that asks for it… He’s probably thinking “It’s time to dust off the old “too big to fail” cliche!

    • anneinarkansas

      So do I, wolfie, so do I….my tummy is churning with everything I read today.

      • Hold fast, We are on God’s side… Our Day Will Come! Those who spit in the face of God will be cast down, and those who held faith will be rewarded. NObama is a false idiol, a false god… But not to US! We recognize him for what he is… We KNOW the true God! And we put out faith in our God… Not in the false anti-Christian idol.

    • SineWaveII

      You’re right, that’s why he wants control of the debt-ceiling and why we can’t let him have it.

  • Arrrggghhh

    Someone call the PC police. Are you sure she isn’t the Obamaphone woman? I notice a resemblance.

    How long before California asks for, and receives, a bailout?

    • SineWaveII

      Never. They can ask for anything they want, but there isn’t enough money anywhere to bail them out. Obama will need his tax on the rich to pay for eight days of his current spending. After that it’s cut cut cut all way baby. Since California wants to give itself to Mexico, they should ask Mexico to bail them out.

  • aPLWBinAK

    That clip is a good micro-explanation modern American political thought…….”we voted for ya’lls, now give us ‘free’ shit (OPM)”……we’re screwed people, we live in a country now where too many people actually think they deserve OPM ala Sandra Fluck

    • SineWaveII

      Mitt Romney is right. Detroit: “We are the 47%”

  • demographicallychallenged

    It sad when you realize that Detroit once was one of the great cities in the U.S. The lack of vision in the rust belt allowed these Cities to decline to their present status.(I’am orig from Cleveland). The people of the once great cities were told that the manufacturing would come back with union wages. Too many still believe this, the others left.

    • Arrrggghhh

      You’re spot on. I’m not from here but I moved to a city here in the rust belt a few years ago. There is an overwhelming sense of entitlement. To their credit, at least the union people work, but they definitely have an unrealistic sense of entitlement. This is especially true of public sector unions. Bus drivers have healthy salaries, retire early, have pensions and lifetime healthcare. Seriously? It’s basically unskilled labor. If my 9-year old were taller, she could drive a bus.

      There is very little entrepreneurism or understanding of the connection between rewards, innovation and taking risk. The only risk they take is playing the lottery or at the craps table. Unfortunately, I don’t see this region changing its mindset in the foreseeable future.

  • anneinarkansas

    America voted for this and now we have it in place!
    Things are downhill from now…….

    • There is a ginormous counter-attack in the making here! Don’t give up hope! The darkest hour is the hour before the New Dawn!

      • SineWaveII

        Amen, Wolfie

  • Oh for crying out loud! First off, she ruined my appetite for my bacon sandwich. People like her is why Detroit is a waste land. It was once a decent city, but decades and decades of liberals running it into the ground, who can be surprised. The only thing that surprises me is that there are still enough people who live there to vote for idiots like this. Oh, did I say live? I guess maybe the few homeless folks made up for the votes they couldn’t get from the cemetaries.
    Good luck with the bailout. I’m sure dear leader will give it to you. What will you do though when there’s no more money left to bail you out again?

    • SineWaveII

      Riot in the streets, ala “Greece”

    • Orangeone

      If a “white” person had said “our people” there would be rioting in the streets because of racism….unbelievable. Moochier needs to head to Detroit to work on their overeating behavior issues and lower ObamaCare health care costs.

  • MeanGreenBeret

    WARNING Language. This councilwoman should listen to this dude.

    • That is a fantastic video! TY! I don’t know who this guy is, but I like his message! I just tweeted his video!

    • Sorry, edited. Duckie’s still half asleep.

    We are now the “gimme” generation.

    Gimme Gimme Gimme Phone, Gimme Gimme Gimme Home, Gimme Gimme Gimme Money, Gimme Gimme Gimme Food, etc….

    No one wants to be responsible for their actions at all or earn their keeps and pay for the bad decisions they made. This is the “gimme” generation. God help us. No more Prayer of Jabez for us where we (through hard work) enlarge our territory. We must depend on the state/federal govt for help in everything.

    • SineWaveII

      Don’t worry, their rude awakening is coming faster than anyone can imagine.

  • medicinewomantwo

    Put barbed wire around the city she lives in, oh wait it is, okay just don’t let them out.

  • GetWhatYouPayFor

    Bail out? She looks well fed to me. Maybe she should put down that free cell phone and take a walk at lunch time.

  • Africa shole, why? Detoliet shole, why? Southside Chicago aka Obamaland shole, why? Oakland shole, why? St. Louis shole, why? What is the common thread??? What could it be? I’m sure if Obama had a son….

    Bailing out a sh*thole makes it a deeper sh*thole. It perpetuates the sh*t.

    Sh*t, sh*t, sh*t.

    Thanks for playing another round of “Save Us From Ourselves”! We have some nice consolation prizes for ya’. Here’s a fur helmet with titanium lining to keep you warm, stylish, and less capable of hurting yourself. What the hey, take this pink sequined cowboy hat too.


  • sDee

    I look forward to the day when Americans realize that the Federal tax code is designed to transfer wealth from red states to blue, from rural to urban.

    Our money is taken from us by the IRS and used to concentrate, subsidize and reward those who profit from even bigger federal government.

    • SineWaveII

      You know what I find most interesting about our current tax code and the income tax? People act like it was created the same day the Declaration was signed or something.
      In fact it’s not that old. There are still a few Americans who are alive today who were alive when it was first implemented. (That is, the permanent tax we have today, there were temporary taxes before that that ALWAYS had an EXPIRATION DATE – Imagine that?)
      So really, it’s not a part of America, but actually an experiment. And as an experiment I think it’s time to consider it a failed experiment. It has only existed since 1913. Since then every which way imaginable has been done to try and make it work. It’s been tried high, it’s been tried low and its been tried regressive (make the people who get the most benefits pay for it) it’s been tried progressive (the people who make the most pay for the benefits of those who pay the least) and it always leads to the same conclusion. Debt, deficit and a failure to finance the operations of the government.
      In short it doesn’t work By why doesn’t it work? Here’s a little secret.
      The income tax when coupled together with automatic-withholding creates a tax that in fact is not a tax on income, but rather a punishment for employers for hiring workers. (Yes it’s true)
      It discourages the creation of jobs except for government jobs. Don’t believe me? Try an experiment, offer to take your employer (or the person who pays your salary) to lunch and then ask them: “How do you view the income-tax from your (the employer’s) point of view? Would you agree that it makes it harder for you to hire more workers?” I think you’ll be shocked at the answer. Those of you who are employers, you already know what I’m talking about.

      Excuse the length of this post but it took this many words to make my point. If you want me to explain what I mean in more detail, ask me in-reply and I’ll be glad to.

      Let’s not forget the redistribution to Mexico! Tax credits are given to those with family members living in Mexico and no I am not kidding. You can be an illegal and claim them too!

  • TruLevinian

    This is the same city that keeps electing the same types like Kwame Kilpatrick and Coleman Young. Both were absolute disasters and could probably still get elected. It’s your fault Detroit, not ours. Now go tell your unions that they lose and the benefits are no longer available. UGH!!!

  • Congress should freeze spending: unnecessary spending as well as perceived necessary spending.

    • SineWaveII

      It think we should simultaneously re-adopt the 1999 budget and the 1999 tax rates. That would make everybody happy. We would eliminate the “Bush tax cuts” and put some of the burden back on the lower income people while raising taxes on the rich. We also cut spending back to the “near-balanced” level of 1999.
      There would be trade-offs. For example the repubs would give up Medicare part D and No Child left behind. The dems would give up Obamacare, the increased CAFE standard on car makers the higher minimum wage and the stimulus spending enacted in 2009 and 2010. As well as most of the “green jobs” money.
      There would be no more “Obamaphones” we would cut foodstamps back to 1999 levels put the work requirement back into welfare and pull out of all military conflicts started since 2000. Sounds like a fair deal to me, what do you think?

      • Orangeone

        Since Barky Boy thinks Israel should go back to 1967, I propose the US do the same! 1967 budget, 1967 welfare, food stamp, Pell Grants, Medicare, Medicaid, and on.

  • Rshill7

    Let’s see, everyone’s hopping in the wagon and fewer and fewer are pulling that dude. No wonder it only runs in one direction these days…downhill, and over tops of the pullers.

    Remember the old Skin Bracer commercials? They should bring those back and let only leftie star in them.

    Thanks, you needed that.

  • mikeinidaho

    The bailout is coming! Don’t worry your fat little head there, ma’m. Obama will always take care of his ‘peeps’! That is until the well runs dry, then you scum are on your own!
    Socialism only works until the socialists run out of other people’s money! And we are looking at the bottom of an empty well.

  • This is funny coming from the party of “bipartisanship”. Why can’t these folks just swallow their pride and work with the State government to fix those problems with the budget? If I can recall, they have a Republican governor. Sheesh. This kind of thinking is the problem with this country.

    • Rshill7

      We have a Republican everything in Michigan since 2010 at the state level and we still have that after this recent election. That’s why she’s appealing directly to Obama instead of Snyder.

      We did have a city managers law in place where they could come in and retake the purse strings from poorly managed cities like this, but it was voted down (gutted) as one of six ballot proposals.

      Currently we are pushing “Right To Work” through the state house and trying to relax some stifling gun regulations. That’s working it’s way through too.

      If the gun thing passes, I’m buying my wife and daughters some ultra-high-voltage stun guns to carry around. They have some that look just like cellphones now.

      My sonny boy can still kill a person with unregulated “mind bullets” 🙂

      • “My sonny boy can still kill a person with unregulated “mind bullets” :-)”

        For now… 😉

      • Adding to that, apparently the legislature is going to let Detroit go bankrupt. Also Snyder is pushing for school vouchers and gas drilling. Snyder would be a better president man.

      • Orangeone

        I’m saying extra prayers that all you need passes!

        • Rshill7

          Thank you 🙂

  • Beak86

    We started down this road a long time ago. FDR discovered he could win by giving out OPM. You’ve got to give her credit for saying out loud the game much of the country has been playing under the table for years. When the rules of the game are acknowledged out loud we have a chance to change them.

  • Timothy A. Jumonville

    Isn’t that interesting? “Exercising leadership” means give us money!

    What a country!

  • denbren52

    I honestly don’t think Obama will do anything to bail out cities like Detroit. He only hands out our money where he stands to gain politically or financially. What does he stand to gain by helping Detroit? He’s done running for office. Even if he could run again, Detroit would vote for him because he’s black, period. He will keep the slaves of the government in their place.

    • I said the opposite somewhere below in the thread. Thing is… I hope YOU are RIGHT and I am WRONG! For America’s sake!

      • celestiallady

        I think he should bail them out. Every last one of the idiots that voted for him should get on the band wagon and hound him and DC till they can’t stand it anymore. They so think they are entiltled to it because they did vote for him – after all he gave them free phones and all the other free stuff they get. Grr I am so sick and tired of this.

    • Rshill7

      Because you can’t have dinosaurs in your ideological Jurassic Park dying off en masse. It would put the exclamation point to the lie.

  • repubboy

    Hey wait a minute she has a great idea.. Let Obama Bail out Detroit.. Yep! Lord knows he has enough personal wealth, from all those off shore and foreign contributions, all his crooked buddies oops! I mean Bundlers…He’s got all kinds of money stashed away. Let the man bust it out and save all those dam fools that voted for him.. Yo Big O go save those dumb A.. that voted for you.. And one more thing while you are at it. Try working on something other being on the campaign trail.. elections over time to go to work. Earn your pay for a change !

    • marketcomp

      Yea, Obama’s stash, right!

    • Put your money and your health insurance where your mouth is Congress and help out this city and others like it with YOUR personal resources! Give up your incomes at a very high rate to help your fellow man out! Stop using my personal income!

  • sjmom

    Once again I have to admit I am not surprised at the councilwoman’s words; a “quid pro quo”. Guess she thinks since it works that way in the Obama administration he should pay his debt to her city. Geesh!

  • stage9

    “But really, bailouts just keep irresponsible people from actually fixing their problems.”

    I think that’s what God’s telling us too. If we would’ve won this election we would’ve gone right back to business as usual. But now, we’re forced to reflect and examine our hearts. God’s giving us an opportunity, a measure of time, to repent of our nation’s sins, to turn from our own futile ambitions and to return to our First Love — Him. If we don’t, God help us.

    • wodiej

      I wish more conservatives would embrace your thoughts. I believe the same thing and have since obama was elected in 08. Conservatives have gotten way off course over a number of years and they have not been getting it. 4 years of obama apparently was not enough.

  • Rocco11

    I think we’re seeing before our very eyes and ears why despite hundreds of billions of foreign aid, Africa has never made it out of the stone age…

  • Who really knows how much money and “free” government stuff Obama and his minions really did promise to people (not to mention unions) during the election? Just relax and take “comfort” in the knowledge that YOU are going to get stuck with the bill for it. Basket-case states like California, Illinois, New York, and Michigan will certainly get bailouts from the Federal Government because it’s what they do best, spend money, especially money we don’t have. So until we reach the point of being just like Greece, and that point IS going to come by 2016 at this rate, Obama and his enablers are going to keep spending like there’s no tomorrow. Unfortunately, there always IS a tomorrow and it’s coming real soon.

    • wodiej

      well many wealthy people voted for obama and they will be the ones paying for all this. Enjoy.

      You and I know what the hell she meant and if a WHITE person said “you people” we would be racisttttttttt.
      She should waddle her fat azz in that Detroit pawn store with the show on TruTV and sell some the cities worthless crap off.
      Maybe that grease ball that runs the place would give her a good deal on her city provided luxary SUV.

    Not to mention that Obama will be campaigning here in Detroit tomorrow. I’m convinced that the guy is so addicted to himself, he has to travel to Democrat ran areas to have his ego stroked. Never could he or would he expose himself to opposing ideas. We all saw what that was like for him in during the debates.

    • Orangeone

      He did that after the 208 vote too. A narcissist cannot be away from the ego-stroking. I’m curious how he’ll vacation for 3 weeks without campaigining.

    And everyone went crazy when Romney talked about Obama’s gifts…….how true his statement was!
    Too many racists and takers voted for Obama and this is the terrible truth. There was not one reason to vote for him, but he won with the help of sheep, corruption and voter fraud. The GOP doesn’t have to change its message but his approach on how to fight!
    First of all I wouldn’t even lose my time and negotiate with Baracka Claus, but remove him from Office. There is enough evidence that he is not eligible nor trustworthy.

  • Diogenes_wy

    Talk about total stupidity! The black community just doesn’t get it. Obama is not black! He’s an ‘oreo’. If minstrel shows were still alive he’d be Mr. Bones. In addition, his political modus operandi is to look forward to the next election, which he no longer has to do, therefore, he won’t feel obligated to offer or honor any ‘paybacks’. You guys got ‘punked’ by the punker in charge.

  • tinlizzieowner

    Hey Twit. Democrats and their union pals, have run Detroit for decades, how do you think you got where you are in the first place. What’s wrong honey, didn’t your free Obamaphone come in the mail yet? 😉 😉

  • wodiej

    Your commentary was on the spot. This coincides w businesses getting tax abatements for creating jobs. If a company plans to expand, they get many of their business taxes deferred for a certain period of time, as long as 10 years. Often times they create very few if any new jobs. I recently wrote a LTE and asked, if this particular company was doing so well they needed to expand, they would need to hire more people anyway. So why should they get a tax abatement for it? It is in essence, a bailout/entitlement spending. This particular company was a law firm. Any company that wants to expand should have a sound, financial plan to do so. If they don’t, they should not be expanding.

    It’s the same thing as obama’s tax the rich. Do you really think the wealthy are going to be paying more taxes after they take more deductions, put their wealth in tax shelters and overseas? And they won’t be hiring anyone either because that is about the only tax they can’t avoid. I don’t have a problem w capitalism, just greed. This video is an example of greed and irresponsibility w taxpayer dollars.
