johnny_vegas: hdhale: Detroit...it's the minor leagues of political corruption.  If you can do well there, they send you to Chicago.

/and on rare occasion to the Senate and the White House

Rhode Island would like a word with you


Not to mention Texas.

KwameKilstrawberry: 98K514: And we all know, if given the chance, Detroiters would re-elect him in a heartbeat.

They had a bunch of Federal marshals at the courthouse waiting for a riot that didn't happened, so no.


In Detroit, how would you tell?

To sum, a TFer posted a thread about saving up to buy a Real Doll, but now he found a woman and asked TFD whether or not he should still buy the doll.
Obviously, a fake thread.
Then the mods outed him and hilarity ensued.


Was't he also the same guy that made a submission about his balls getting wedged in his wooden chair and he got outed that time too?

MCStymie: Kwame will be put back in office about 18 seconds after he gets out of three-squares.


Nope.  Michigan amended their constitution after Kwame was convicted so that no felon could hold state or local office.

In short, it's usually used to describe things like when the mob walks into your store and demands that you pay them a
"protection fee", or they cannot guarantee your safety.  And, of course, they will be the ones doing the harm if you don't pay them.

So, then you link the article that you stole your previous opinion from?  AND it is the WND article???  AND it is nothing more than an opinion piece with some smattering of informational nuggets some of which are completely unrelated to the conjecture in the opinion piece?

Amazing.

Why am I surprised at this? Ol racist Michigan never wanted this family in power in Detroit. They took Carolyn Cheeks-Kilpatrick through the ringer (his mom) when she was in Detroit politics and now her son is in office (was in office) and they come after him too. Really? 20 years in prison for getting yoga lessons, paying for tuition and going on vacation? Is this not the lives of half of middle-income America? And he had tailored suits! OH, the humanity! This was overkill to teach him a lesson. Don't be black and in power in Michigan.

What can they expect? They announced the verdict at like 10AM. Folks were just getting out of bed.

dickfreckle: We're working on locking up the former mayor of New Orleans (Nagin), so I'm getting a kick...


How screwed up was that with Heebe? They toss out Letten and the crooks get away. I don't have any hope for a Nagin conviction if they can't get Heebe. With Heebe you had a list of folks with the bribe amount in his office and that investigation gets dropped.

No hope.

Oh goody...we've reached the delusional and stupid "I can out hyperbole you" part of any "FARK Detroit thread."

For example, could you have had a 10,000 person 5K run in downtown Baghdad like was held in Detroit (Corktown) yesterday?  No, then STFU, you are an idiot.

Next will come the "it's because of racism" part of the thread...then followed by 500 memes and "nuke it from orbit" comments, then the next days' news.

To be fair, letting the National Guard practice various things (ending with demolition) in some of the abandoned areas would probably help.  They get urban warfare practice, the city gets rid of some of it's crack houses.

A standard in reporting these days is to state the party affiliation in the headline if it's a republican.  For a democrat, if they bother to mention the party it will be in the last paragraph.  I've gotten into the habit of assuming democrat if the news article doesn't make it obvious right from the start.  I've yet to be wrong.
