  1. Conservatives here might like this article from The Telegraph by Daniel Hannan: Statism is turning America into Detroit–Ayn Rand’s Starnesville come to life. Having just re-read the book after 50 years, I found much of it, like Daniel Hannan, prophetic.

  2. “For blacks, empathy for Obama trumps economy . . . “The Hill
    A commenter, on MOTUS, compares this to Stockholm Syndrome. Interesting.

    • There’s no mystery why the Black community supports MrObama without question. He’s what Black men used to be; married to the mother of his children, head of the household, bringer of the bacon, and respectable in every area.

      We can bet that anything that’s not to their liking is placed directly on the Repubs, or racists, or anyone but him.
      They love seeing MrsO in the WhiteHouse, and approve everything she does, everything she wears, and thinks she’s beautiful.
      I get it. They are so proud that America elected a Black man to live in the WhiteHouse they would forgive or overlook anything.

    • I call bull on Sharpton and The Hill for saying that the public sector has been more impacted by the hard economic times than the private sector.

  3. Oh please, unions are not going to do a 180 and turn to Repubs for anything. At best, their complaints are just a bargaining point for a cut-out from the most onerous parts of Obamacare.
    The only political move the unions would make is to sit on their campaign money until they’re assured of special treatment by the candidate.

    MrObama, the MSM, and the professional race-baiters tried their darndest to make a racial force from the outcome of a trial in Florida, and failed. They failed to engage the very group that was targeted because they picked the wrong fight.
    Calls for massive marches fell on deaf ears, calls for a boycott of Florida is backfiring, and the President now sounds like a pandering fool after his pathetic, self-pitying speech on Friday.

    “Stop Hillary”, pshaw. One word; Benghazi.

  4. I did spend some time this morning thinking about the individual human impact of Detroit. And while it is sad, very sad, these same people not only elected, but re elected politicians who were astonishingly corrupt and supported the union culture. The writing was on the wall, and Detroit just crashed right into it.

    And it is absolutely bizarre that after a week of race baiting, and with the failure of Detroit on the screen, Obama will go out and talk about the economy as if he had a clue. We are now at the point in this country where we are the living cliche of insanity, doing the same thing over and over again with the same result.
