Get A Real Man to do the Job

"I just use my muscles as a conversation piece, like someone walking a cheetah down 42nd Street"
Arnold Schwarzenegger

I have a strong suspicion that our Detroit mayor is a complete narcissist. A week or so ago, he assaulted a police officer who was serving a subpoena for a case in which this mayor has been implicated. He was charged and arraigned for this assault. The other night, he violated the terms of his release and crossed the Canadian border. For this, he spent Thursday night in the hooskow. He was released today on a $50,000 personal bond.

The subpoena was issued to a friend, or relative or crony who was somehow involved in the mayor's other shenanigans. I don't have the time nor the will to tell you the entire list of complaints against this thug (the mayor.) Suffice it to say he is out of his mind. If you really want to know about this man, you can read about it here.

I'm completely perplexed as to why this man still has supporters in this city. I drive through this city on a daily basis and I'm appalled at what I see. There are pockets of truly beautiful neighborhoods in the city, but there are some devastated areas that make me wonder if I'm not in some third world country. The main reason I bought my gps device is because I can't find street signs on many of the roads I travel in the city. Why do people tolerate this? Why don't they demand propriety and professionalism from their leadership? Since the mayor is a lawyer, how could he think his actions would be tolerated? This guy is in a free fall.

Next month, the governor of our state will hold a hearing to determine if the mayor should be removed from office. Damn Jennifer, just call your gubernatorial colleague from California. Maybe he can get the job done.

be careful what you ask for..

oh, and that sheep thing? i'm very very slow.
does that mean i'm good at falling asleep, or not so good?

It don't know what the sheep mean. As for the mayor of this city, he's terrible. He's cost the city many millions, is implicated in a scandal that involves the death of a stripper who'd been at a party at the mayor's mansion. It's all very sordid and sad. I think anything would be an improvement.

I heard about your Mayor on the news. I guess he's not too bright...ciao

Rudee said...

He is such an embarrassment Rositta. Everyday, the plot thickens. He is in a maddening spiral downward and dragging the entire area with him. I don't know why he isn't forced to stepdown.

Doesn't he remind you of Coleman Young!

Rudee said...

He's worse than Young!

Brenda said...

Yes...that story made news all over the country, I think. Does make you wonder why he wasn't booted out before now.

Rudee said...

Brenda, it does make me wonder. I don't understand how he won in the first place or how he won re-election in the second place. I don't live in the city anymore so I can't vote. If I did, it wouldn't have been for him. Of the folks who do vote there, no one that I know says they have voted for him.

In the apples don't fall far from the tree category, his mother, Carolyn Fitzpatrick, just won the democratic primary for re-election to congress. US Congress. Don't think this family doesn't affect you. They're all on a runaway train.
