    Call it like I see it, show me that you understand basic civics and tell me the role of the Federal Govt and do you believe it is the role of the Federal taxpayer to fund your teachers, police, fire departments?

    Do you believe the Federal government should help Detroit as it helped the Big Three?
    And how is that mess in California that Brown has cleaned up from Gov. family values?
    And tough luck with General Powell. And Jim Sensenbrenner.

    No, I don't and the Federal govt. didn't help the Big Three, only GM/Chrysler and they shouldn't have done it as GM still owes the taxpayers billions and Chrysler is owned by Italy

    Facts:

    “If I had to wait for the money later in the year, it would be too late,” Mr. Coleman said, noting that he had to close a budget gap of nearly $100 million. “I had a very narrow window of opportunity.”

    The urgency, he said, was not that crime was getting worse — Columbus ranks as the eighth most dangerous city in the country of cities with a population of 700,000 or more — but that if people didn’t feel safe, they wouldn’t invest in the city. “It’s easier to create jobs when it’s safe,” he said.

    William L. Scott, 35, is one of the immediate beneficiaries. He is one of the 25 police recruits who were sworn in Friday. On Thursday he said he was crushed when he was laid off, having moved to Columbus from the Dayton area specifically for the police job. He was looking for other police work when word came that the jobs were saved.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    What about voting rights? You don't believe someone should have a photo ID to vote? Sorry, I do especially today when you need an ID for just about everything

    Oh, Good Lord, Boo, you really are nothing more than a big central govt. liberal where personal responsibility doesn't exist and the Federal taxpayer should bail even you out of poor choices you make. Sorry, that isn't what made this country great. Police, fire, and teachers are funded by state taxes, Obama bought union votes by his use of Federal funds to "save" jobs without even giving the states the opportunity to do it. That is a state responsibility, not a federal one. You live in the wrong country.

    You'll look forever before you find I said this. Is this part of dishonesty schtick? How about Powell and Sensenbrenner? Why can'tor you answer that?
