Bail Calif. out the Detroit way

Dec. 5, 2012

By Katy Grimes

California overwhelmingly just voted to re-elect President Barack Obama. Shouldn’t the state get a little somethin-somethin in return? Especially because California is teetering on the verge of becoming a giant Detroit. With three cities already in bankruptcy, and others on the edge, California could use a federal bailout.

Detroit City Councilwomen JoAnn Watson knows the score, and plans on bringing home the bacon.

Watson said Tuesday that because the citizens of Detroit supported President Barack Obama in last month’s election, the president needed to bailout the financially destitute city.

“Our people in an overwhelming way supported the re-election of this president and there ought to be a quid pro quo and you ought to exercise leadership on that,” said Watson. “Of course, not just that, but why not?” Fox 2 News Headlines reported.

“After the election of Jimmy Carter, the honorable Coleman Alexander Young, he went to Washington, D.C. He came home with some bacon,” said Watson. “That’s what you do.”

Apparently, 75 percent of Detroit, Michigan’s Wayne County voters voted for Obama. Only 60.3 percent of Californians voted to re-elect Obama, but the state’s 55 electoral votes sealed his win.

We deserve some bacon. This is the Democrat-way. “That’s what you do.”

    The Sandy storm on the east coast will take up all the excess dollars in the budget. The republicans in washington will help out the sandy victims, but there ain’t no money left for Kali, Illinois and Detroit. The fiscal cliff will see to that.

    We are in big trouble, and when the can can NO LONGER be kicked, that is when the fiscal cliff becomes a free fall into chaos and anarchy………of course the pols and their buddies in big business and the public unions won’t give a rats patoot until that happens.

    Google built out the fastest cheapest internet service in Kansas City. Google wanted to build in California but the regulations (which add cost and time) stopped them. That is why it is more expensive to do anything in Cali which gets passed on to the average Californian. Business have been running out of the state for years. Who could have guessed how bad Detroit would get 50 years ago. California has many mini Detroits already and they are growing.
