Kwame Kilpatrick Living Large Like An Obama

Two Peas In A Pod

Deposed Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick is back in Detroit today facing a hearing about his current status and wanting to continue his luxorious lifestyle in the very conservative state of Texas.

From The Washington Post:

DETROIT — A motion to postpone Kwame Kilpatrick’s arraignment for a probation violation refers to the former Detroit mayor as a “darker version” of ex-President Bill Clinton and claims his legal troubles continue to hold the city back.

The document, filed late Tuesday with the Michigan Court of Appeals by defense attorney Daniel Hajji, asks the court to grant a stay of the arraignment set for Friday in a lower court, which could land Kilpatrick back in jail.

And while Detroit deteriorates to the conditions of a third world country, Kilpatrick and his lawyers demand that he be allowed to continue to ignore his financial responsibility to the City of Detroit and to live his lavish lifestyle he has become quite fond of.

From WZZM13 News:

Kilpatrick’s attorney, Daniel Hajji, made the claim in an impassioned 14-page motion filed with the state Court of Appeals late Tuesday in an effort to postpone the ex-Detroit mayor’s Friday probation-violation hearing in circuit court — one that could eventually land him behind bars.

Wayne County Circuit Judge David Groner will arraign Kilpatrick for failing to pay $79,011 toward the $1 million he owes in restitution by last Friday’s deadline. Kilpatrick and his lawyers say he doesn’t have the money, despite his plush lifestyle in a tony Dallas suburb and $120,000-a-year sales job for Covisint, a Compuware subsidiary.

“The clientele he must establish a rapport with are likely to be the privileged and the affluent,” Hajji said in the motion. “Burgers and beer at the local bar is not going to be sufficient.”

Maria Miller, spokeswoman for Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy, said: “We intend to file a response tomorrow with the Court of Appeals.”

Kwame Kilpatrick is living large because, his lawyer says, he has to.

 

Another Dim Bulb…

I saw this waste of sperm on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace.  I was  losing my mind as I  watched the governor of Michigan with the worst state economy in the entire nation arguing with the governor of one of the most economicaly stable state governments in the country.

Jennifer Granholm Woodpecker Personally, I have more use for tits on a boar hog then I have for this useless fucktard!

And they say it is hard to find a good job with a criminal record…

Who says it’s hard for a brotha to get a job after gettin outta da joint?

Former Mayor of Detroit Kwame Kilpatrick landed himself a cushy job in the home state of Former President George W. Bush with Michigan based Compuware.

From WZZM TV:

DETROIT (Detroit Free Press) – Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick is expected to be named to a new job in Texas with Covisint, an affiliate of Detroit-based Compuware Corp., a person familiar with the arrangement told the Free Press on Wednesday night.

 Compuware Chairman Peter Karmanos was preparing to announce the hiring today, the person said, speaking on the condition of anonymity.

 Kilpatrick’s duties were not defined, but would not include contact with Detroit or Michigan-based customers. Covisint develops systems for large computer networks to communicate with one another.

 Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson said Karmanos told him in October that he was going to offer Kilpatrick a job.

 “I haven’t heard any details about what the job is,” Patterson said Wednesday night. “But I walked away from the conversation admiring Peter’s loyalty. It wasn’t my place to question his decision.”

Democrat and big supporter of the Moonbat Messiah,  Kilpatrick just returned to the city he screwed after being released from jail a week ago and flying to Dallas for a job interview in a private jet that his mother leased after spending 99 days in jail for perjury and other charges.

I believe they just announced that they are laying off 250 people.  I guess that is the only way they were going to be able to afford a crook like Kwame.

How Unions Killed The American Auto Industry

Having been a member of a couple of unions in my lifetime, I can speak from experience that in today’s world, they are more useless then tits on a boar hog and I’ve often believed that their greed would destroy American Manufacturing someday.

Michelle Malkin received an email this morning from someone who has worked in the auto industry and points out the difference between the big 3 and the more efficient “Foreign” auto makers.  I’ve posted a teaser and you can click on the link to read the rest.  If you think your a huge fan of unions, you might want to read this.

From Michelle Malkin:

Dear Michelle, Thank you for taking the time to read my comments. I worked in the Automotive Industry for most of my career as a supplier to GM, Ford, Chrysler, Honda of America, Toyota, Nissan, and BMW.

You were exactly right with your comments on Fox & Friends this morning. The UAW has handcuffed GM, Ford, and Chrysler with unreasonable and unrealistic burdens. Their balance sheets will never improve until they shed this weight.

There is another aspect affecting their business and is not being talked about in the media very much.

Having dealt directly with all current domestic automobile manufacturers, there is a distinct difference in how the Big 3 do business with their suppliers as compared to Honda, Toyota, and other foreign automotive assemblers. Toyota, Honda, and Nissan in particular want to make sure they are entering a partnership that insures financial success to all parties.

GM’s business practices generally lead to no profit, tremendous oversight by their internal supplier quality watchdogs, who demand unrealistic expectations, and extremely slow payment in the reimbursement of tooling costs to start new programs. It is not unusual to see reimbursement for tooling costs years after the program has started.

Their business practices are not a tax payer problem, but a terrible management problem. It was a noble idea for the Federal Government to lend them $25 billion to help. It is now known 4 X’s that amount will not cure the root cause of the problem., but only buy them 4 X’s the amount of time.

I do believe that unions served a purpose in their beginning when manufacturing in America was increasing and abuse and expoitation of workers was widespread, but times have changed, but the unions have not. They have become nothing more then Greedy political arms that do nothing to represent the workers but simply that of their own.  I believe Unions have outlived their purpose and that they need to go the way of the Carrier Pigeon and become extinct before American Manufacturing and the American Manufacturing worker do!

A German Lady Remembers and Speaks

I know, I promised I wouldn’t be blogging unless something broke, but this broke my heart.  Take it for what you want, but I think this is worth reading.  At this point, I’m not comparing Obama to Hitler, but there are some mind boggling similarities especially with the rhetoric that he spouts over and over, and over again and again….

From Astute Bloggers:

In Germany, when Hitler came to power, it was a time of terrible financial depression. Money was worth nothing. In Germany people lost homes and jobs, just like in the American Depression in the 1930s, which we have read about in Thoene’s Shiloh books.

In those days, in my homeland, Adolph Hitler was elected to power by promising “Change.” He blamed the “Zionists” around the world for all our problems. He told everyone it was greedy Zionist Bankers who had caused every problem we had. He promised when he was leader, the greedy Zionist bankers would be punished. The Zionists, he promised, would be wiped off the face of the earth. So Hitler was elected to power by only 1/3 the popular vote. A coalition of other political parties in parliament made him supreme leader.

Then, when he was leader, he disgraced and expelled everyone in parliament who did not go along with him. Yes. Change came to my homeland as the new leader promised it would. The teachers in German schools began to teach the children to sing songs in praise of Hitler. This was the beginning of the Hitler Youth movement.

It began with praise of the Fuhrer’s programs on the lips of innocent children. Hymns in praise of Hitler and his programs were being sung in the schoolrooms and in the playyard. Little girls and boys joined hands and sang these songs as they walked home from school. My brother came home and told Papa what was happening at school. The political hymns of children proclaimed Change was coming to our homeland and the Fuhrer was a leader we could trust.

I will never forget my father’s face. Grief and fear. He knew that the best propaganda of the Nazis was song on the lips of little children. That evening before he said grace at the dinner table, he placed his hands upon the heads of my brothers and me and prayed the Living Word upon us from Jeremiah 1:4-5.

‘Now the Word of the Lord came to me, saying,
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
and before you were born I consecrated you;
I appointed you a prophet to The nations.”

Soon the children’s songs praising the Fuhrer were heard everywhere on the streets and over the radio. “With our Fuhrer to lead us, we can do it! We can change the world!”

Soon after that Papa, a pastor, was turned away from visiting elderly parishioners in hospitals. The people he had come to bring comfort of God’s Word, were “no longer there.” Where had they vanished to while under nationalized health care? It became an open secret. The elderly and sick began to disappear from hospitals feet first as “mercy killing” became the policy. Children with disabilities and those who had Down syndrome were euthanized.

People whispered, “Maybe it is better for them now. Put them out of misery. They are no longer suffering.And, of course, their death is better for the treasury of our nation. Our taxes no longer must be spent to care for such a burden.” And so murder was called mercy.

The government took over private business. Industry and health care were “nationalized.” (NA-ZI means National Socialist Party) The businesses of all Jews were seized. (Perhaps you remember our story in Berlin on Kristalnacht in the book Munich Signature)

The world and God’s word were turned upside down. Hitler promised the people economic Change? Not change. It was, rather, Lucifer’s very ancient Delusion leading to Destruction. What began with the propaganda of children singing a catchy tune ended in the deaths of millions of children.

The reality of what came upon us is so horrible that you in this present generation cannot imagine it. Our suffering is too great to ever tell in a book or show in a black and white newsreel.

When I spoke to Bodie about some of these things, she wept and said she could not bear to write them. Perhaps one day she will, but I asked her, “who could bear to read our suffering?” Yet with my last breaths I warn every Christian and Jew now in the name of the Lord, Unless your course of the church in America is spiritually changed now, returning to the Lord, there are new horrors yet to come.

I trembled last night when I heard the voices of American children raised in song, praising the name of Obama, the charismatic fellow who claims he is the American Messiah. Yet I have heard what this man Obama says about abortion and the “mercy killing” of tiny babies who are not wanted.

There are so few of us left to warn you. I have heard that there are 69 million Catholics in America and 70 million Evangelical Christians. Where are your voices? Where is your outrage? Where is passion and your vote? Do you vote based on an abortionist’s empty promises and economics? Or do you vote according to the Bible? Thus says the Lord about every living child still in the womb.

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
and before you were born I consecrated you.”

I have experienced the signs of the politics of Death in my youth. I see them again now. Christians! Unless you stand up now, you will lose your freedom of religion. In America priests and preachers have already lost their freedom to speak openly from their pulpits of moral danger in political candidates. They cannot legally instruct you of which candidate holds fast to the precepts of scripture! American law forbids this freedom of speech to conservative pastors or they will lose their “tax exempt” status.

And yet I have heard the words of Obama’s pastor Damning America! I have heard the words of Obama damning and mocking all of you in small towns because you “Cling to your religion.” But I am a woman whose name is unknown. My life is recorded as a work of fiction. I have no fear of reprisal when I speak truth to you from the pages of a book.

I have no fear for myself, but for all of you and for your children, I tremble. I tremble at the hymns to a political leaders which your children will sing at school.. (Though even now a hymn or a prayer to God and our Lord Jesus is against the law in public school!)

Your vote must put a stop to what will come upon America if Barack Obama is elected. I pray you will personally heed this warning for the sake of your children and your grandchildren. Do not be deceived. The Lord in Jeremiah 1:7-8 commands every believer to speak up!

“Do not say, ‘I am only a youth,’ for to all whom I send you, you shall go, and whatever I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of them for I am with you, declares the Lord!”

Twas The Night Before The Election

A friend of mine emailed this to me.  He said he got it from the Barking Moonbat Early Warning System.  Enjoy!

‘Twas the night before elections
And all through the town
Tempers were flaring
Emotions all up and down!
I, in my bathrobe
With a cat in my lap
Had cut off the TV
No more political crap.
They had come for my wallet
They wanted my pay
To give to the others
Who had not worked a day!
He snatched up my money
And quick as a wink
Jumped back on his bandwagon
As I gagged from the stink
He then rallied his henchmen
Who were pulling his cart
I could tell they were out
To tear my country apart!
On Fannie, on Freddie,
On Biden and Ayers!
On Acorn, On Pelosi’
He screamed at the pairs!
They took off for his cause
And as he flew out of sight
I heard him laugh at the nation
Who wouldn’t stand up and fight!
So I leave you to think
On this one final note-
If you don’t want socialism,
get your ass out and VOTE!
