DrRatchet: A lien on a house in Detroit? I'm as much for futile, symbolic gestures as the next guy, but that's taking things a bit far.
Walker: Detroit, why you so f*cked up? Can't you do anything right?
wxboy: DrRatchet: A lien on a house in Detroit? I'm as much for futile, symbolic gestures as the next guy, but that's taking things a bit far.The house in question is in Maryland. It's even mentioned in the first line of the article.
bdub77: Walker: Detroit, why you so f*cked up? Can't you do anything right?I think we need to let Canada just annex Detroit using the power of Eminem Domain.
Pangea: FTA:Orr has apparently not paid $16,000 in unemployment taxesHow long do you have to be on unemployment to accrue that much in tax liability? Unemployment benefits in NC maxed out at $535/wk until recently and they withhold 10% for the taxes on that. That's 30 weeks just to get $16k in benefits. If the numbers hold, and they probably don't, 30x9 = 270 weeks.To say nothing of his employability, this guy shouldn't be allowed to touch ANYONE'S finances in the first place. Let alone have control of an entire city's. I claim this guy was installed because he's highly corrupt and easy to manipulate.
Gondus: Umm, I think they are referring to the taxes payed to unemployment while working.
hammettman: That's some fine financial appointing there, Lou.
Farce-Side: Man. Detroit is effed up. I read the comments at the bottom and my mind was blown.
StreetlightInTheGhetto: ///Detroit needs help, for sure. This is a piss poor way to go about it.
Pangea: Gondus: Umm, I think they are referring to the taxes payed to unemployment while working.Maybe so. Unemployment tax in NC is 1.2%. It takes $1.3million to get to $16,000 at that rate.Still seems really sketchy to me, even in this entirely opposite scenario from my first claim.Surprised they couldn't garnish that money, especially when I saw my payroll checks obliterated when I was behind due to some unreported numbers once.
SlothB77: and people wonder why this country is in debt.
jigger: You think it's difficult to have $1.3 million in payroll? Unless I'm mistaken employers pay unemployment tax on their payroll.
Claude Ballse: Enough already. Why fight it any longer than we need to?
Aidan: So... Man. The whole EFM thing gives me the willies (especially the y'know, not will of the people part) but I do wonder sometimes... What else could we actually agree to do?
ringersol: Walker: "Detroit, why you so f*cked up? Can't you do anything right?"To be fair: this clown was handed to them by the Governor.Seems no-one in Lansing thought through that part of the EM law:When you take over Benton Harbor, Flint, Pontiac and Detroit, you can no longer feign outrage at further fark-ups.And you already used "how bad it was" and "we can do better" as your justification for taking over.So you're pretty much out of wiggle-room to disown mis-steps, the lack of results, or to biatch about the media not being 'fair'.Enjoy!
FlashHarry: i'm pretty sure he was hired by the republican governor because he's blah.
jjwars1: WTF?! This is the best EFM they could find?
