Since there is a 50/50 dividing split on this forum over who will run Detroit,I have thought of a interesting forum....Inner-City Politics,and on this format anything goes.The Detroit Inner-City citizens-vs-The Outsiders.In my opinion I think the current City Admin should come up with a revitalizing Detroit plan,and I have came up with 5 ideas. (1): Accelerate reductions in the city income tax. Add no new or higher taxes to the already sky-high tax burden. (2): Review each city service. If private firms or other units of government are already providing the service,the City should stop producing it,either by canceling it,or by competitivily contracting it to reputable private firms. (3): Dramatically downsize the city bureaucracy,that's now one of the lergest per capita in the midwest. Because Detroit's citizens cannot afford this bloated payroll.Finally Sell unused buildings and equipment. Use the revenues to reduce city debt and to finance unfunded retiree health care obligations.This is something that one of the Community groups that I am involved with who created this proposal to submit to the City Administration in January.

Yes, but his/her posts are almost impossible to read. Try using the "enter" button to make paragraphs. That way we may be able to understand you a little better.

Thank you and have a nice day.

1. KK is trying to implement an NEZ type property tax reduction. While it is only a band aid it is a start. I believe that the income tax is rolling back every year.

You also forgot about working to reduce insurance rates. People are working on it but I expect it to go nowhere.

We also need accountability from city employees at all levels. That hasn't been around for decades.

Jt1 House Rep Bill McConico is working on a bill for lowering insurance rates,and that's why its important to write your Senator,or write your House Representive.If anyone needs the write your Senator,or House Representive,post who you want to write,and I will post it on here.City employees love to waste tax dollors, and I agree they need to be held accountable for their acts too.I have seen City Workers pick their city truck on a side street for hours after hours,and sometime they leave in another awaiting automobile.Paying them to ride around is expensive.

I think you mean that you're such a poor thinker that you had to resort to being a thief. Your five ideas came from the Detroit News. The Detroit News!!! (I don't want to hear about the "outsiders" from william_x ever again.)

Bullshit William_X... You stole your ideas nearly word for word from Detnews. I can read too. At least attribute the ideas.

Let's do a side by side comparision

Point 1- You said: "1): Accelerate reductions in the city income tax. Add no new or higher taxes to the already sky-high tax burden. "

Detroit News says "Accelerate reductions in the city income tax. Add no new or higher taxes to the already sky-high tax burden....."

Point 2: YOU -"(2): Review each city service. If private firms or other units of government are already providing the service,the City should stop producing it,either by canceling it,or by competitivily contracting it to reputable private firms."

Detnews - "Contract city services to competitive private firms with proven track records. The city should conduct a "Yellow Pages" review of the services it provides -- that is, it should ask: If you can find it in the Yellow Pages, should city government really be doing it? Whenever private companies can perform a particular activity, the city should either stop producing it or provide it through competitive bidding. "

Point 3:
You: "3): Dramatically downsize the city bureaucracy,that's now one of the lergest per capita in the midwest. Because Detroit's citizens cannot afford this bloated payroll.Finally Sell unused buildings and equipment. Use the revenues to reduce city debt and to finance unfunded retiree health care obligations."

Detnews: " Sell assets, such as underused buildings and equipment, and use these one-time revenues to reduce debt and finance unfunded retiree health care obligations. "

Now the Detroit News article is attributed to a Michael D. LaFaive, director of fiscal policy for the Mackinac Center for Public Policy, a research institute in Midland... Is this the community group you are involved with?

The world makes sense again. Well, the world apart from William_X's writing, that is.

So is William_X associated with James Ribbron 'cause he ripped off Mr. Ribbron even more closely than Detnews.

No one is saying these are bad ideas - they aren't. But at least attribute where they come from instead of these mystery "community" group.

BTW Detnews article is not recent. It is from Sept 2, 2005... While the One Detroit post is Nov 19th...

Just asking your source for the ideas since they were published on two online sources previously. And since you didn't nix the One Detroit thought - do you read that? It is an interesting blog.

Meliss for your information I am a black man who belong to one of your most powerful white political organizations here in Michigan,and I am not talking about the NAACP or the Urban League.After fighting with you online dumbasses this past week,I am starting to see why the world is full of so much hate,and on here its plain and simple its a white against black movement,and I suggest that you suburbanites be ready for the next civil disorder.Its coming the signs is on this site,and I know that most of you loudmouths on here will be the first coward asses to hide.

1. Don't know ya, so don't have an inclination of hate towards you.

2. Just asking you to attribute the idea to the original source. I expect everyone, including myself, to give proper credit where it is due.

3. Nothing here is mine. I have no powerful white political organization or white media press.

4. Not a surburbanite. I live in the city, thank you.

Now can we discuss the actual ideas?

Considering a lot of people here on the forum seem to like the idea of reinstituting the residency requirement for city workers (particularly firefighters/police officers), would privatization of city services work?

Don't see anything wrong with selling unused equipment but buildings? Already enough abandoned and neglected building downtown - would this help or hurt? What are the true benefits other than revenue? And what would prevent the city from having to take control of the buildings back over when the landlord ignores the property?

Totally agree city taxes are absurd. Not sure how the high property tax is inviting to anyone not truly in love with the city.

Jmy8 and Bless. Frankly what you post on here does not matter to me,just as long as you can't put your hands on me,and that really goes for anyone else.You can call it hate speech,or you can call it being a racist,and what I call it...is presenting facts that whites resent having from the beginning.(now hopefully that sounds like a racist). I would not care if all suburbanites was on here posting hate,and by rights I can do that also,and I am like most of you I can do it anytime I please.Bless this statement..Gumby take that hate speech somewhere else,must be for these others on here too.

Hey, everybody, I just wrote a new song that you can sing at birthday parties. It goes:

Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you, dear
Happy birthday to you.

Hope you enjoy this song that I wrote.

Valuable lesson I have learned today:

White = racist = suburbanite

If you are one, you must be all three.

Oh, thanks to ItsJeff for the song idea - it's my mom's birthday this weekend, and I'll be sure to try it out. What song is it to the tune of, or is it just a chant?

There is nothing hateful about pointing out the truth: William_x stole "his" five ideas from another source. If you don't like being called out for being a thief, don't fucking steal. The calculus there is very easy to understand, unless you're one of Rasputin's "Saturday Scholars."

Like I said (and I do not have to lie) my group and I came up with these ideas and suggestions.Wait Wait I have been justifying myself to you people that I don't know,and will never meet in this life.So think whatever you want to think,and remember just like you have the damn rights to think whatever,I have rights to put my opinions out there too.Now in closing since I stole the ideas you motormouths prove (by printing) the exact article that you all claim I stole it from.I am done with this ignorant bullshit,and I will not be leaving the DetroitYes site no time soon.So this hate can continue as long as you all want it to,and I will stand up alone if I have to against you denial freaks.

William_x, you're the first Black Panther I've met that also writes for the Mackinac Center. We're lucky to have you here!

Did your "group" also come up with these ideas?

"When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation."

and

"Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth, upon this continent, a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal."

Good work, X!!!

I can just see the reaction of the "City Administation" if a community group went in preaching the Mackinac center's policies to the city. They'd be tossed out on their asses so incredibly fast.

Wow. This is the most hilarious thread I've ever read.

I kinda feel for william_x though. One time... in jr high I used a joke at school that I saw in some obscure movie. My friends called me out and it was absolutley humiliating.

Of course... that was jr high. And at least it was an OBSCURE reference. Not the damn Detroit News. LOL.

But seriously... use the frickin' enter key, willy.

Again He haven't proven shit so why keep the hype going? Do you love confusion? Also I do not hide from nonbody Track75 believe me,and I don't mind people posting bullshit online,especially whites who is always spiting venom. JF like I have posted again and again, am I suppose to be shaking in my boots from reading typed words? All this is really showing me is a group of peckerwoods who dislike the truth,and I would love to let one of you bad asses TRY to punch me in the face in reality,and live to brag about it.

Ndavies: I can just see the reaction of the "City Administation" if a community group went in preaching the Mackinac center's policies to the city. They'd be tossed out on their asses so incredibly fast. Mackinac? Black politics don't mix with white politics. Miss Ndavies, that why the forum mood has changed.Also Miss Davies If the group did (preach) as you call it at where ever Mackinac is,one would think its a lynching going on sorry I meant to say a race roit.After all the hell you whites been through you're still trying to ran things I see.

Thanks William_X that was my point exactly. If you had taken Mackinac policies forward. They would have laughed you out of the room. Unfortunately for you. that is exactly what you claimed you would do. The 5 ideas you claimed you were going to take before City council, were written by the Mackinac center.

William_x I guess I fail to see how Detroit news is racist but we shall leave that for another thread. Using the race card should be a last resort, but you have the freedom of speech to defend yourself, more power to you on that.

William_x you hit the mark on those 5 proposals. No one on this thread has failed to realize that maybe William_x works for Detroit news, or worked on that story. No one asked the question so I wonder if he had influence on the final article?

Whoever you are really William_X if you feel that white people are out to get you, or destroy Detroit, then I think you need to get a clue on the posters on this site.. Everyone here is for improving Detroit, we all have our different methods and ideas, but we have one goal! Make Detroit a world class city!

This site is composed of all different races, ages, and backgrounds. Yeah they attack me sometimes to when I do stupid things.. You can all point that out now! lol.. You can't take things personally but in the same right using the race card is bull shit.

I feel like a broken record here, but this city needs EVERYONE to help... And I challege you if this is a black city then why are middle class black americans moving out of the city? There are so many questions I could ask you about racism in Detroit.

But if you look at history of Detroit it isn't just because of a black and white seperation. There is so much more to it. And again I ask if Detroit is a black city, why do you not see upper-class african americans coming to the city in a flood to help the city?

Have fun with that...

You couldn't explain your way out of a paper bag, Rasputin, and you know it. But I like your amusing contributions to the forum, so please continue.

Dig, Lets be real Dude you know like I know whites would never call Detroit News a racist newspaper like they would the Michigan Citizen or the Chronicle,and that's the entire problem of this forum you all point and post bullshit at us (Blacks),but don't think we should correct or check your bs,and to be honest here's a good example.Today two students was kicked out of Highland Park community high for committing a crime.The Detroit News or any one of the 3 tv news channels don't come into Highland Park if nothing bad is happening.I am wondering if Clinton Township police ever caught that white guy who robbed and raped that poor old elderly woman.

Ras you should talk.. lol.. I glad you do correct people, it's good to see. The same statement about the media can be said about how arabs are viewed in the media as well. If it bleeds it leads. That's there point is to get ratings and get people up and arms..

True I don't know how the other half lives, but in the same right everything is not always about race either. But thank you for the clarification William_X. Yes we are all human, but why in the world would you say we all bleed? Odd...

Hey, everyone, I just came up with 10 ideas for righteous living. Hope you find them helpful:

1. Thou shalt have no other gods before me
2. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image
3. Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain
4. Remember the sabbath day and keep it holy
5. Honour thy father and thy mother
6. Thou shalt not kill
7. Thou shalt not commit adultery
8. Thou shalt not steal
9. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour
10. Thou shalt not covet any thing that is thy neighbour's

No I bleed like everyone else Willam_x, just a statement I am not used to; I guess I took it out of context. Sorry about that..
