Fear a Riot? Give’em a bailout!

Posted on: March 29, 2012

Detroit is getting a bail out  from the Michigan state government (all tax payers in the state regardless of where they live or how well off their own city is due to prudent planning and spending!)  Why are they getting a bail out from the state?   According to the governor Detroit is getting a bail out rather than being allowed to go into bankruptcy because he fears riots!   Of course the bail out will just pay off the unions  of city employees benefits and retirement packages currently and to use a much over-used phrase “kick the can down the road”.

What happened to Detroit which was a booming town just 50 years ago?    How did a not only thriving but sailing on the top of the country’s economy city fall so fast and so far?   Fallen even tho billions of federal dollars and thousands of federal programs have been poured int the city during the past 50 years.  The following essay is thought provoking as it contrasts two cities.  BB

65 years later!
What happened to the radiation
that lasts thousands of years?

We all know that Hiroshima and Nagasaki were destroyed

in August 1945 after the explosion of atomic bombs.
However, we know little about the progress made by the
people of that land during the past 65 years.


What has caused more long-term destruction:
the A-bomb, or the U.S Government welfare programs
created to buy the votes of those who want someone
to take care of them?
Japan does not have a welfare system.
You either work for it, or do without!
Which system is working better???

Unfortunately the graphics were missing on my browser’s view of the page. I would have enjoyed seeing the complete article. While I mostly agree with your summation of a perfect world. I find it hard to justify the billions spent by the U.S. government on war and pay-offs to their friends. The federal reserve is slowly draining the wealth of your country. For such a wealthy country; you sure have a lot of poverty and sub-standard infrastructure. “Give me your poor, your huddled masses”?

There always will always be free-loaders and people like Mitt Romney; exemplifying those corporate welfare bums. Even in Japan. {see the Yakuza} I think most riots are orchestrated affairs, achieving more repression by authority. You rightly point-out how union leaders, etc. get their pay-offs from them. Most of those union leaders, achieve their prominence. Much like any other politician and often belong to those select families that send their children to the right schools.

I am sorry about the graphics as they needed no explanation to tell the story. I can’t seem to get them back either. I don’t understand these new fangled things like computers so if something requ9ires more than simple copy and paste or typing on the keyboard i am lost. 🙂 BB
