Does Detroit Stand a Chance?

Another bad appointment. I thought it was bad enough when President Obama appointed Timothy Geithner while I was working for the collection area of the Internal Revenue Service. I had to interview and collect information from taxpayers attempting to resolve their tax problems with the IRS and when they caught wind that the President’s appointee as U S Secretary of the Treasury owed some back taxes some tried to use this in their defense that if my boss didn’t have to pay, why should they? Very cute, amusing and all that and very wrong for the fact that if any of the IRS employees (the peons) did not pay tax promptly, they would lose their jobs.

It has just come to light that the Emergency Financial Manager that Governor Rick Snyder appointed to help save Detroit’s finances, did not properly take accurate care of his own finances in the recent past.  As an employee of the collection area of the IRS, I know how many notices are sent to the taxpayers and just how hard they try to contact them before any liens or levies are ever issued.  The liens were supposedly issued by the state of Maryland and I don’t know what their criterion is for placing liens, but the fact that he claims to not be aware of it cannot be true.  Is he lying?  Probably, but who can prove otherwise?  It appears that our business culture has become lousy with people who would not recognize honor or decency if it sat on their head and most couldn’t even give the correct definition of good business ethics. 

I don’t just fear for the future of Detroit, but all our cities and our country in general.  If it keeps up at this rate, there will be all out civil war in the streets between the thugs in office trying to appear legit and the thugs in the street because they are stepping into their turf.  It might be all the recent confusion brought about by the onslaught of liberal thinking.  They love the sin as well as the sinner.  They are confused for the fact that you are supposed to love the sinner and hate the sin.  You are supposed to encourage your brother to “go and sin no more.”  Most of them say “what the hey, we are all only human, if it feels good do it, and I must be born this way.”  What a cop-out and what a sick way to twist a society.  The longer this continues the more evident will be the destruction of these wrong mindsets, so give them enough rope…
