Forum Post: Tyranny for Fun and Profit

Here it is kids, pure tyranny.

"Right" around the corner, when you're just around the block.

Where is the outrage?

The REDs have taken over their first major metro area!!!

Michigan residents might be wondering how this EFM got appointed. Didn’t they roundly reject financial managers in a statewide referendum in November? Michigan residents voted to repeal the EFM law by 53-47 percent after 200,000 people signed a petition to put the issue on the ballot. But this outburst of democracy didn't stop the Republican-controlled legislature and Gov. Rick Snyder from ramming through a new law to do the exact same thing during a lame-duck legislative session a month later.

I'll start sharpening my pitchfork.

Unfortunately for us, you have this guy and we don't.

There just enough Bernie's to go around.

[-] 1 points by ZenDog (20567) from South Burlington, VT 1 year ago

yet the dems at the state house are attempting to pass all kinds of new taxes - its as if they plan on a repelican resurgence.

wtf?

[-] 1 points by shooz (26739) 1 year ago

Your guess, is as good as mine.

The race to the bottom continues, unabated.

I wonder if Lew will provide the list Bernie's asked him for?

[-] 2 points by ZenDog (20567) from South Burlington, VT 1 year ago

I missed it - what list?

and what's up with all of the censorship over here?

[-] 1 points by shooz (26739) 1 year ago

Bernie asked Lew for a list of who's Too big to fail/jail.

I don't know about that, but there's an obvious bot running at the moment.

[-] 1 points by ZenDog (20567) from South Burlington, VT 1 year ago

Lew probably doesn't even know who is too big to fail . . .

and I saw that, LittleMatchGirl has all the best comments. I think I saw where she noticed it too. I'm not at all certain what it all means, but she seems a bit irritated by the whole thing.

Not that I blame her of course.

We could operate on the assumption that every new comer is some new incarnation of Trashy Macaque but I honestly don't know if that would be a reflection of reality or our own collective paranoia . . .

[-] 1 points by shooz (26739) 1 year ago

Lew knows Citibank is far too big to fail............:)

It already didn't.

I can't believe the President really believes the WS bullshit, so what's up with this latest appointment?

[-] 1 points by shooz (26739) 1 year ago

Extortion, based on fear of another crash.

[-] 2 points by ZenDog (20567) from South Burlington, VT 1 year ago

blackmail, kidnapping . . . they've taken the entire public hostage . . .

At some point national security should dictate a response by the intelligence community to put these fukers down . . . . but I ain't seen it yet . . .

[-] 0 points by shooz (26739) 1 year ago

For them..........it's job security!!!!!

LOL

Generic and non-commital here too.

Who were you in the days that deathshead was here?

Who were you yesterday, for that matter?

Respond, if you haven't been banned yet.

[-] 2 points by shooz (26739) 1 year ago

What the hell are you talking about?

What makes you think I don't have a clue?

I've provided you with more than a handful of clues, and you have yet to respond to any of them.

Just like this posting is completely unrelated to the OP.

So what did you expect?

You came here as this persona aiming for a particular response and now that you have it, you're going to quit??

I'm thinking that was your plan anyway.

[Deleted]

[-] 1 points by shooz (26739) 1 year ago

People keep acting like you is the reason.

It's like the several threads with people whining about the forum. Or the gun nutters. It's just whining.

I've asked you several times now to discuss the issues in Michigan and Wisconsin.

You just plain won't go there.

[Deleted]

[-] 1 points by shooz (26739) 1 year ago

You know what I mean, evasive and non-issue related.

Lived???

I'm still here, and must ask you who you think made it a "hell"?

A very important question, indeed.

[Deleted]

[-] 1 points by shooz (26739) 1 year ago

Why don't you talk about what Engler did and is still doing?

I'm really just looking at a reason to believe you. Especially after you dropped the ball after your comment about deathshead.

[-] 1 points by LittleMatchGirl (-143) 1 year ago

Dropped what ball??? What ARE you talking about???

[-] 1 points by shooz (26739) 1 year ago

No, the question is.......what are you talking about.

I see that underneath, you've also provided a generic anger response.

Yet you've answered exactly none of the important questions.

I'll try one more.

Who were you in the days that deathshead posted on this forum?

[-] 0 points by shooz (26739) 11 months ago

A bus driver sick out.

Privatization continues. Is it any wonder the actual reporting is SO very slim?

They have already used this method in smaller Michigan cities.

Outrageous. The people have to rise up.

I don't have the answer.

[-] 1 points by shooz (26739) 1 year ago

Union busting at this level is new here.

[-] 0 points by inclusionman (7064) 1 year ago

Larger city, more brazen tactics. it is because not enough of us are outraged, Not enough of our leaders are outraged.

Detroit has been abandoned by so many for so long the only ones left have no representation and have given up hope.

Republicans are responsible, and dems have no spine.

obama is profiting from his tyranny

[-] 1 points by shooz (26739) 1 year ago

All the polls give back to their contributors.

Big revelation.

I know.

All of which were debunked long ago, everywhere but the tea'o'sphere.

I'm providing ongoing proof and facts that you haven't even responded to.

Here's another.

Run off and have some fun at FLAKESnews now. You know you want to.

[-] -1 points by greysone (-264) 1 year ago

sick pay has nothing to do with obama & com squandering taxpayer $ so he and his friends could make /take millions , knowing that the companies were worthless.

[-] 1 points by shooz (26739) 1 year ago

You missed that whole part about debunking????

Of course you did.

Here's another bit 'o' fact for you, since Michigan is the subject.

http://www.eclectablog.com/2013/03/detroit-public-schools-emergency-manager-roy-roberts-boldly-lies-on-national-television-about-his-success.html

It's just more of the lies the REDs tell you, and I'm sure you will believe them.
