    Nothing is decided until it is decided. Having said that, I do not disagree with you that the government will not bail out Detroit. The control of the House by people who are right wing extremists and corporatists pretty much say you are correct in your prediction.

    Greetings, apdst.

    Since Detroit's problems have been long in the making under years of Leftist governance, we can understand why a Leftist judge feels the way she does. Once again, party loyalty trumps reality! However, anybody who has ever had to balance a checkbook would have realized long ago that there were problems! Yet Detroit's elected officials ignored reality and just kept on spending money they didn't have. And now it's possible that every taxpayer in this country is going to be asked to pay for Detroit's apparently ongoing mistakes in governance? Why? No wonder an Emergency Manager was warranted, since those in charge obviously didn't care enough, or were unfit and lacking in skill and ability to turn things around before it got to this point! How did they ever get elected? :

    Don't I know it. The right wing is extremely creative when it comes to hijacking the English language. I would not be surprised if the prestigious Von Mises Institute had classes and seminars in the subject.

    Thank you for pointing out that factual reality. You are correct. I was using the term to describe Great Britain as a foreign power across the ocean that was different than the colonies here. But thank you for making the obvious point. You are correct.

    Which part of "those who wish to use the violence of government to accomplish their unjust ends" is not English?

    It is the hijacking of the English language twisted and raped by extremists who attempt to use jargon and nonsense to further their political agenda.

    But of course, you know this very very well Federalist. You know this very very well as we have been down this road many many many times before.

    So you admit that the phrase "those who wish to use the violence of government to accomplish their unjust ends" is simply standard non-jargon English? Thank you.
