There is only one thing left that Detroit can do. Declare war on the United States and then immediately surrender unconditionally. Send the entire city population into other states as refugees.
After a tumultuous four years overseeing a city long riddled with blight, corruption, crime, and historic financial issues, mayor Dave Bing has had enough, telling a stunned audience at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African-American History Tuesday that he’d leave when his term ends in December.
Modern Day Hiroshima, 65 years after the atomic detonation...
The 69-year-old Bing, a hall-of-fame NBA player who spent most of his career with the Pistons and then was a successful businessman in Detroit had never run for office before narrowly winning the 2009 race to replace Kwame Kilpatrick, who in less than a term in office had gone from rising Democratic star to scandal-embroiled mayor to convicted felon. After winning a full term the same year, Bing tried to turn around a city that has been losing population and sinking into an ever-deeper economic hole for decades, with a City Council resistant to his plans for radical changes to save Detroit and the looming prospect of the Republican governor appointing an emergency economic manager who would effectively take control of the city’s finances from its elected officials.
Modern Day Detroit, 51 years after the Democrats took over...
- Detroit, founded in 1701, at one point had a population of 1.8 million - today, 706,000.
- Geographically, 55% of the city's area is abandoned.
- In 1950, Detroit had the highest median income in the country; today it is 66 out of 68.
- Per capita, Detroit spends over $15,000 per year to educate a student, compared with about $11,000 nationally, yet it graduates only 21% of students.
- Detroit's public education system is run completely by the Teacher's Union
- Detroit's population is 89.4% "non-white".
- Over 2% of Detroit residents are homeless (homeless rate of 20 per 1,000).
- A black man dropping out of high school will face a 73% rate of unemployment. He will have a 60% chance of going to jail before he leaves his 20's.
- Only 56% of the eligible workforce in Detroit is employed; of those employed, 17.2% work for the government.
- To hire someone legally in Detroit, you must pay the mandated minimum wage of $10/hour - businesses can not afford it, so they leave.
- 47% of households made less than $35,000/year; only 1% had incomes over $200,000.
Government Gone Wild
It's now official. The US government has ripped offed off it's tube top and is flashing its tits at all passersby. And she won't stop there. From Healthcare IT News:
The Internal Revenue Service is now facing a class action lawsuit over allegations that it improperly accessed and stole the health records of some 10 million Americans, including medical records of all California state judges.Avert your eyes 'cause Aunt Samantha just pried open another bottle of tequila and is struggling with the buttons on her cut off jeans. This bitch is gettin' real!
According to a report by Courthousenews.com, an unnamed HIPAA-covered entity in California is suing the IRS, alleging that some 60 million medical records from 10 million patients were stolen by 15 IRS agents. The personal health information seized on March 11, 2011, included psychological counseling, gynecological counseling, sexual/drug treatment and other medical treatment data.
"This is an action involving the corruption and abuse of power by several Internal Revenue Service agents," the complaint reads. "No search warrant authorized the seizure of these records; no subpoena authorized the seizure of these records; none of the 10,000,000 Americans were under any kind of known criminal or civil investigation and their medical records had no relevance whatsoever to the IRS search. IT personnel at the scene, a HIPPA facility warning on the building and the IT portion of the searched premises, and the company executives each warned the IRS agents of these privileged records," it continued.There is a new revenue program whereby all IRS agents will be issued latex examination gloves, information will be gathered on all taxpayer "ring sizes." Your government will get to "know you" in the biblical sense. So bite the pillow me hearties, 'tis a foul wind that be blowing through yer mizzenmast when yer pantaloons are down below yer knees.
According to the case, the IRS agents had a search warrant for financial data pertaining to a former employee of the John Doe company, however, "it did not authorize any seizure of any healthcare or medical record of any persons, least of all third parties completely unrelated to the matter," the complaint read.

Wake Up Call For The AP
The ASSociated Press has learned that the Justice Department tapped the phones that perhaps as many as 100 of their journalists used for several months last year.
WASHINGTON (AP) - The Justice Department secretly obtained two months of telephone records of reporters and editors for The Associated Press in what the news cooperative's top executive called a "massive and unprecedented intrusion" into how news organizations gather the news.Obviously a fishing expedition was initiated. What were they looking for?
The records obtained by the Justice Department listed outgoing calls for the work and personal phone numbers of individual reporters, for general AP office numbers in New York, Washington and Hartford, Conn., and for the main number for the AP in the House of Representatives press gallery, according to attorneys for the AP. It was not clear if the records also included incoming calls or the duration of the calls.
In all, the government seized the records for more than 20 separate telephone lines assigned to AP and its journalists in April and May of 2012. The exact number of journalists who used the phone lines during that period is unknown, but more than 100 journalists work in the offices where phone records were targeted, on a wide array of stories about government and other matters.Now will you fools wake up? These people play for keeps and they care not a whit for the rules. They are a danger to our nation and will stop at nothing to gain an advantage.
In a letter of protest sent to Attorney General Eric Holder on Monday, AP President and Chief Executive Officer Gary Pruitt said the government sought and obtained information far beyond anything that could be justified by any specific investigation. He demanded the return of the phone records and destruction of all copies.
The verdict is in on the operator of a Philadelphia abortion mill:
Former Philadelphia abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell has been found guilty of first-degree murder in the deaths of three babies authorities said were born alive before having their necks cut with scissors. A jury found Gosnell not guilty of first-degree murder in a fourth baby’s death.The conditions under which these women had their children butchered were unbelievable. That the jury found this monster guilty on three counts of first degree murder is incredibly satisfying; perhaps there actually are more than a few in this country who have not bent the knee to Baal.
In addition to the murder charges, the 72-year-old was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the overdose death of former patient Karnamaya Mongar.
Gosnell was also found guilty of several other crimes including one count of infanticide, two counts of conspiracy, 21 of 24 counts of abortion of an unborn child of 24 weeks or more and 208 of 227 counts of violation of informed consent of an abortion.
In all, Gosnell was found guilty of 237 crimes. He will now face the death penalty in the sentencing phase, which will begin a week from Tuesday.
The alleged crimes came to light on February 10, 2010 after investigators from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Drug Enforcement Agency raided the inner-city clinic at 3801 Lancaster Avenue following a tip that a prescription pill mill was operating inside.It is astounding how little attention was paid to this trial by the media. More here.
Agents were met, not with an illegal narcotics drug operation, but rather, unsanitary conditions. Investigators testified they found blood-stained rooms, filthy and old equipment and untrained staff. Aborted fetuses were stored in a basement freezer in plastic food containers and bags next to employee lunches. Severed feet from aborted babies were found preserved in jars around the clinic.
The conditions found inside the clinic led Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams to call the clinic a "house of horrors" in a 2011 grand jury report.
