WASHINGTON — Nearly $300 million in aid for Detroit — from federal and state coffers, private businesses and charitable foundations — will be announced Friday as Obama administration officials visit the city to discuss what can be done to help eradicate blight, improve transportation, encourage new business and make residents safer. The funding will include $150 million in blight eradication and community redevelopment, including $65 million in Community Development Block Grant funding — which had already been awarded over two years but could not be accessed by the city. An additional $25 million could help hire as many as 150

Welfare is extortion.
Give us money or we´ll burn your cities down.

If you weren´t there, google "sixties riots" for the refresher...

This is the endgame.

Taxpayers pay parasites ever more money
not to burn down
what desperately needs
burned down.

$300 Million Bucks will buy lots of bulldozers and track-oes.... The very thing that Detroit needs.

A change in Politics is probably out of the question...So will the last person out of "De Toilet", turn off the lights.

State and city leaders and other honorable servants of the public know best how to divide that money up: one $ for us, one $ for the program, one $ for us, until the money is gone.

In doing so, its throwing good money after bad. $300M is a drop in the bucket for what it would take to bring Detroit back, plus a population that works and is not on food stamps and other public assistance!

Dollars to donuts, it will do nothing, because the root of Detroit´s problem is not lack of money, it is unwillingness to enforce the law.

Which brings us to this ´free´$300 million for these criminals.

Detroit has 140 square miles of geography. So the Feds are giving them about $2 Million per sq. mile, just about the cost of what a D-8 +operator costs to level it and clear the debris, at which point it will be in salable condition for Canada to purchase. Only sold with population included.

25 million for 150 firefighters. That´s $166,666.66 per firefighter. Somehow I don´t think they get paid that much since the average firefighter get paid $44,000 per year that´s $122,666.66 going someplace else. I wonder which corrupt politician is going to get it.

How much is being set aside for Los Angeles, Chicago, Cleveland, Philadelphia, New York, New Orleans, etc. for the soon to be announced bankruptcies and government failures? Years of generous pay and pensions to the government employee unions are starting to surpass revenue in most of these cities too.

ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. - Innovative Title Services, Inc., a real estate title services company established in 2003, faces a tax penalty that could virtually shut down the small business.

Mo Nabbach said two officials identifying themselves as being from the Stalinist state´s mission took pictures of his M&M Hair Academy in Ealing, west London. They then demanded to know his name and ordered him to remove the "disrespectful" poster from the salon window, he told the Evening Standard newspaper.

KIEV/MOSCOW - Armed separatists took virtual control of a city in eastern Ukraine on Saturday and Kiev prepared troops to deal with what it called an "act of aggression by Russia". Pro-Russian activists carrying automatic weapons seized government buildings in Slaviansk and set up barricades on the outskirts of the city. Official buildings in several neighboring towns were also attacked. The developments have increased concerns of a possible "gas war" that could disrupt energy supplies across the continent.

Others to file for bankruptcy include discount chain Loehmann’s, trendy retailer Dots and the plus-sized Ashley Stewart Holdings.

Of the plans that states have hatched for the Affordable Care Act, none has been bolder than that of Vermont, which wants to implement a single-payer health-care system, along the lines of what you might find in Britain or Canada. One government-operated system will cover all 620,000 of Vermont’s citizens. The hope is that such a system will allow Vermont to get costs down closer to Canada’s, as well as improve health by coordinating care and ensuring universal coverage. Just two small issues need to be resolved before the state gets to all systems go: First, it needs the federal

TMZ reported Thursday that police are in the beginning stages of investigating an alleged incident which TMZ said happened at the Viceroy Hotel in Miami earlier this month. The story said the police were investigating for "possible sexual assault," but Bay Area News Group crime reporter Natalie Neysa Alund wrote that the incident is not being investigated as a sexual assault. No charges have been filed at this point.

And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast
