    I don't think she used the term "bail out" exactly, but it's hard not to conclude that's what she means. See the link in the OP.

    I have no doubt that's part of what Obama intends to do with the extra spending money he's demanding. Votes such as those in Detroit must be paid for.

    Now let me show you where people are asking the President to take money from them instead of giving it to them:

    Man, what parasites these millionaires are.
    They looking for handouts, made up of tax payer dollars. Handouts that they want, because of their own dumbass decisions. Yes, they're parasites.

    I wasn't suggesting it was the solution, merely offering a counterpoint to zimmers "everyone just wants money" argument. I am a firm believer that the government is going to have to do some major spending cuts in order to balance the budget.

    She is completely stupid.
    She is also completely at fault as a councilwomen for the financial problems that the city has.
    She is just another worthless bureaucrat who is lousy at her job.
    These idiotic political failures transcend political party lines everywhere.

    It doesn't take a genius to figure out what she's talking about:

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

    2. I love this line "where people are asking the President to take money from"... that's Parasite Nation... take it from 'em and give it to us. Spread that wealth around man. Tax and spend. "Invest" (spend) in our future... the parasites.
    1. Perhaps the government should just pass out a collection plate every Sunday at the millionaires luncheon. And last I checked, the President does want to raise his own taxes.

    2. They are offering the money willingly. It's called being part of a United Nation and wanting to help your fellow Americans out. I wish there were more parasites like this.

    The Democrat Party has the lion's shareof these idiotic political figures. And the Libbos have the nerve to bitch about The Tea Party.

    Re: Detroit councilwoman to Obama: We voted for you, now bail us out

    So...I guess she thinks Detroit is "too big to fail", eh?

    Well, I have a few suggestions for Ms. Watson and her leaders:

    1. Lady, looking at you, I'd say you could do without any more "bacon".

    2. Detroit should grow up and learn to take care of themselves.

    3. If, by some chance, Obama does bail them out...it will be wasted taxpayer money unless severe restrictions and requirements are attached to the cash.

    Re: Detroit councilwoman to Obama: We voted for you, now bail us out

    This is nothing new, it started when Obama was first elected. This country is now cemented as a Welfare State. Liberals have been buying the union vote for ever. It's all about free stuff. All a politician has to do is offer up more free stuff and it's an automatic win. Liberals buy votes, Obamacare was bought with bribes.

    Liberals, tax, borrow, spend, and give free stuff. And more and more Americans are catching on fast. Sit in your front porch rocking chair with a 6 pack and watch the liberals destroy this country. They want the rich bastards to pay more, and more, and more, until it's all gone, then they'll scream in the streets "I want my entitlements".

    What's going on in the progressive movement is pathetic. This country has flipped from one of self-resilience and responsibility, to one of government dependence.
