I'm from Detroit. I remember, about 20 years ago, the pension system made an "investment" of 20 or 30 million in a black owned boondoggle that was certain to fail and did. The owner of the company was well connected politically. When all the money was lost, one of the "trustees" laughed about it saying it was "only" 20-30 million and it was nothing compared to what the assets were at that time.

I wasn't there--I can't know what happened. Anyone who claims it is cold blooded murder at this point is a racist or dem/lib/progressive/socialist. Like Derek, I really don't care that much, but watching the circus and reading about it shows how obama got elected twice.
The Missouri mess is of is own racist making. He should have never gotten involved. It is a state matter.
I would pretty much let it go as a fighting point. Time will tell as rates get higher, more people become part time, more lose their insurance, can't find a doctor who will treat them. People will know who is responsible.

Whenever idiots write comments on line that so and so is guilty and should spend life in prison, I ask if they were an eyewitness and have they gone to the police to report their eyewitness evidence. They are so ignorant that they think opinion is truth. The ignorant can be fooled incredibly easily. I never announce my thoughts on an issue until I am certain. I wasn't there and I can't know.
All companies should say they do not get involved in political issues. That's all.
How about autopsies and FBI agents in Chicago every week for the 5-10 murders per week I guess he doesn't value the lives of black kids much after all. Politically, blaming blacks is a no go.
If someone wore the bin-laden shirt, nothing would be done. 1st Amendment rights. Guaranteed nothing would happen.
IF these eye surgeries cost over $11,000, I would expect the IRS to go after the patients because they need to pay taxes on these gifts.
The key question is--Is any other country using CC? If not, than the program stinks. Other countries must be very happy that US kids will fall further behind.
