Detroit Financial Dictator Uses Water as Weapon
The water cut-offs that could soon affect 30,000 Detroit households are â€œan effort on the part of the Emergency Financial Manager to intimidate people, to drive even more people out of the city â€“ but, moreover, it is aimed at privatizing and breaking up the Detroit Water and Sewage Department,â€ said Abayomi Azikiwe, an organizer for the Moratorium Now Coalition and editor of the Pan African News Wire. A United Nations panel of experts called the shut-offs â€œan affront to human rights.
Really what's wrong with that delivery of water is not free...talk about Keane Kilpatrick and the previous black mayors if Detroit that fleeced the city to fill their coffers. Welfare only goes so far..be rid of the leeches and bring new hard working people with who can afford to buy the new cheaper real estate and build the town from scratch.
Back to American, our main problem is political correctness its killing our spirit. The same spirit that got Obama elected twice, white guilt and not wanting to be labeled racists is killing our soul as a country. Look at Nyc and Diblasio, thank god he will gone in a few years
Vladimir Putin said that the Western powers should allow countries around the globe â€œto live at their own discretion, not under someoneâ€™s haunting dictation.â€ Here are the Top 10 quotes from the presidentâ€™s meeting with Russian diplomats.
â€˜Non-interference principle must be fit into European realitiesâ€™
Western interference in Ukraine led to catastrophic consequences for the country, Putin said, suggesting measures to prevent the repetition of a similar scenario in other countries on the continent.
â€œThe task is to fit the traditional principle of non-interference into modern European realities, initiating a serious international discussion of the issue. We all need some kind of a safety net in Europe, so that the Iraqi, Libyan, Syrian and Ukrainian precedents wonâ€™t turn into a contagious disease.â€
â€˜Blackmail wrong tool in international relationsâ€™
President Putin criticized Washington, which already imposed sanctions on Moscow after the accession of the Republic of Crimea into Russia, for making efforts to scuttle Russiaâ€™s 1.12 billion euro deal on Mistral warships with France.
â€œWe know about the pressure that our American partners put on France to prevent the supply of Mistral [warships] to Russia. And we know that they hinted that if the French wonâ€™t supply Mistral [warships] then sanctions against their banks will be removed or, at least, minimized. What is this, if not blackmail?â€
However, he once against stressed the importance of close cooperation between Moscow and Washington.
â€œWe have absolutely no plans to shut down our relations with the US. Itâ€™s true that our bilateral relations arenâ€™t in the best of shape now. But itâ€™s not our fault, not Russia's fault.â€
