Bad omen.

Apparently the city and county of my birth is about to experience the biggest bankruptcy in U.S. history.

Does this foreshadow the nation of my birth experiencing the biggest bankruptcy in human history? 

Yep.  Probably. 

But Andrew Bennett, who works in a courthouse annex in Bessemer, said he worried that the county will repay lenders at the expense of needy people who cannot afford to pay more for sewer service and would be harmed by any possible cuts in county services.

“It’s always the poor people who get left behind,” he said.

Here’s the thing, Andy.  If you feel some program is important, whether it helps the poor or not, then keep it within its budget.   You don’t get to act all “I care for the poor” if you mismanage the programs supposedly supporting them.  For example,

…a string of elected officials, public employees and business people were convicted of rigging the sweetheart deals that helped put the county in dire straits.

There’s your villains, not fed-up taxpayers.  If you want help for the poor to be sustained then it’s your job to make it sustainable.

Hear that, Beltway?  No, of course not.

    … put another way … give me and my pals millions, or I’ll kill the poor people.

    Sorta Obama’s deal … give me all the Dem largesse from the previous two years, or I’ll kill grandma and destroy the currency. Don’t call my bluff, I’ll kill her … I will.

    I like the guys saying … “interest payments are ten cents on the dollar of revenue. If Obama blocks those payments, we’ll impeach him.”

    Of course Obama is caught telling banks he won’t do it, while telling the rest of the world he will. He doesn’t care in the least that his presidential threats/lies do real harm …

      I sometimes accuse leftists of being all talk, but you’re right. That’s unfair. They do also take hostages, when the hostages are sufficiently frail (retirees) or undeveloped (schoolchildren).

    current headlines “Heatwave kill 85”

    My headline “Obama Kill 8500 with Threat related Stress”

    Obama already took $500 billion from Medicare to support his Obamacare, now he is out there slapping grandma around again. What a hero.

  3. crosspatch says:

    It took some digging but apparently all of those accused of corruption in those deals were Democrats. Hmmm.

  4. Jay says:

    The rule in the media is:
    1. if a democrat is accused of corruption, sex scandal, etc, omit any reference to his party affiliation.
    2. If a republican is accused, this must be included in the headline.

    There were even articles about Wiener that said he was republican.
