Unconstitutional Restrictions on the Press

Bubble Bath?

So, the Mayor doesnt want to answer any questions? I cant imagine why that is, since news of his latest trip with Ms. Carmen Slowski and their bubble baths have surfaced. Now there are new rules in the City Hall and parking lot for Hizzoner! I wonder where in the city or state Charter does it say that you can keep the press off of public property? Are we dealing with thugs, or just people that think they are "special"?

The Channel 7 News reports this..chilling!

Wilson: Mr. Mayor, who is Carmen Slowski?

Carmen Slowski, as we first revealed, is the name used by the mystery woman
with whom the mayor shared a romantic bubble bath and deep tissue massage at a
North Carolina spa.

It’s an issue not just because his wife Carlita was back in Michigan
at the time…but because when the text messages showed he was not truthful under
oath about having an extramarital relationship with his then-chief of staff
Christine Beatty, the mayor’s response inferred that he ended such misconduct
long ago: “My wife and I worked our way through these intensely personal issues
years ago,” he said.

But the tryst here at the spa? It was only four days before he made
that claim. So…last night other media also caught how he wanted nothing to do
with me asking about that…or with any other reporter.

Here’s another angle shot by a photojournalist for The Detroit Free
Press…who also shoved by the Hizzoner…

Detroit Free Press Reporter: You shoved me!

And from Chopper 7, you can make out there, in the dark, how cops working
for the mayor pushed me aside and applied a knee to the groin as they held
me…Now…fast forward to just this morning when the mayor arrived at work for the
first time in a week. It’s a public building, a public sidewalk, and
reporters who are frequently at that door to catch a comment from official…but
not today.

Today, all were kept yards away…and now watch here what happens to that
blonde woman when another journalist has the audacity to try to get closer than
the mayor wanted.

And here are the posted new rules for the media inside the city-county seat
of government:
No more access to the parking lot or the entrance where officials come and
No more “random interviews” with officials in public and common areas of
the building, or even near the doors because suddenly “it creates obstructions
and life-safety concern”

Last night the mayor said, “I am the mayor. I made the mistake. I am
accountable.” Then he slipped out a back door and sped away into the
darkness. And today comes enforcement of rules officials say they adopted
in 2006, rules seldom if ever enforced and, says one local attorney, blatantly unconstitutional.

They effectively protect the mayor and others from accountability
apparently, unless we’re invited in for an interview they agree to
schedule. It seems to set-up a new challenge for all reporters—we’re
accountable if you can find us outside the office, or we agree to be questioned
at work.

Now who is kidding who, here? What are you hiding from, Mr Mayor? You cant hide forever, and someone is going to figure out who that woman was that you took a bubble bath with, while your wife was at home two weeks ago. You did the deeds, and this wont stop until you move out of the mansion, and leave the city to clean up your mess.

Mayor Kilpatrick, WHO IS CARMEN SLOWSKI??

Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, Democrat, and Christine Beatty
Who is Carmen Slowski? Watch the video at that link!

Two weeks ago, before the Detroit Free Press released text messages between the Mayor and his love interest, Christine Beatty,(pictured above), the Mayor was spending some time in North Carolina at a resort with another woman. She checked in as Carmen Slowski, and Ms. Beatty has stated to the press that it was not her at this Resort.

Scattered with rose petals, strawberries dipped in chocolate, the Mayor and his little girlfriend enjoyed themselves while taking in a massage and other goodies, before the crap hit the fan about this "other" affair.

Now the press is demanding that the Mayor identify this other woman, and in return the Mayor shoved the reporter and went into his church to make his public apology for Ms. Beatty. That apology was the most disgusting thing Ive ever had to watch. Bill Clinton he is not! His wife was sitting next to him, almost cooing to him, holding his hand and asking for the press to leave them alone.


Most of us saw through that fake apology from them both. Its hard to give up a city paid mansion, city paid trips, city paid vehicles, and the power of being able to tell everyone to go get screwed as he rips them off. Also paid in full for the Mayor was the 9 million dollar judgement for firing 3 innocent police officers to cover his ass, along with his attorney fees.

Now, thats hard to give up! So, while the press searches for the mystery woman, and trust me, after shoving the press around like he did last night, they will now be even more earnest in finding the new love interest, the Mayor finally went back to work today. After a couple weeks off, some spent in North Carolina, some spent in Florida, he has had a nice long vacation before having to face the music.

So, Mr. Mayor, who is the new woman? Why did the taxpayers of Michigan and Detroit have to pay for that? Enquiring minds want to know, since its our money that use to screw around on, and have for years. Fess up, Kwame, or step down. Your dirty laundry cant be washed. Take your gold-digging wife, and your gold-digging, arrogant self, and resign.

Otherwise, the press wont let up until they publicly show the world who the new woman is.

Detroit Mayor kilpatrick and his Affair EXPOSED!

Mayor Kilpatrick and his love interest Mrs. Beatty

Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick- Democrat-Clinton Copy Cat!

I wonder what Mayor Kilpatrick did to the Detroit Free Press. Normally this rag of a Newspaper protects Democrats and Liberals. What pissed them off? That "Pimp Mayor Kilpatrick" fought them for years to stop them from getting his text messages to his mistress?

Or was it that the Pimp Mayor fired 3 cops to cover up the affair and then committed Perjury in the trail against the city that cost the cash strapped City Of Detroit 9 million smackeroos?

Has the City of Detroit had enough? Or will they rally for the Mayor who is a Lawyer, and committed perjury? Sounds familiar, doesn't it? But this Mayor is no Bill Clinton! He's as slimy, as Clinton. But can he get out of this as easily as Clinton got off?

Somehow, it could happen. I find it unlikely though, because the poor people of Detroit had to pony up 9 million dollars to cover his rather large rear end.

Click on the link above to read all about it, and the comments are priceless!

Rumors of election fraud put this moron back in office, the people of Detroit just went on with their lives. But the lies and the threats from the Mayor kept coming about the Cops he fired to cover up his affair. The cops sued the city, would of settled for a couple of million, but the Mayor decided that he would fight it. The whole court affair was televised, and it was obvious to anyone with a brain that this man was hell bent to destroy the police officers. Even though the police officers were telling the truth all along, now that this has been exposed.

And how stupid can you be to use a city property phone to text message that kind of garbage.

So, Mayor "Pimp Daddy of Detroit" whose bowl of Wheaties did you pee on at the Detroit Free Press? Because it sure looks like you lost this one!
Here is the Hip Hop Mayor from the Detroit Auto here..

And here is where he had the City of Detroit pay over 24k for his wife to have a Lincoln Navigator..nothing but the best for Hizzoner!

Michigan and what the Democrats have done..

Michigan and what the Democrats have done..
A newspaper article reports that 400 homes have been foreclosed on in a small city that I was born and raised in. They also mention that 200 to 300 more houses will be next. I didn't think this city had that many homes in it, but I am too lazy to look it up in the census.

Speaking of the Census, that's right around the corner, with them advertising for help right now. Michigan will show that it has lost a huge amount of people, along with a huge tax base. The Census should skip the long form in this state. Speaking of the long form, has anyone ever seen that huge invasion of privacy? Ive gotten 3 of them, they seem to think if they keep sending them to me, Ill finally fill them out. Call your lawyer, they are very unconstitutional.

But what has happened to this small city is that property taxes are not being paid. People that cant pay the mortgage, cant pay the taxes. So the city is struggling while still trying to pay their employees and government what they think they are worth. And while all of this is going on, the wonderful city is going around putting red stickers on these empty homes so that it looks like a slum, with the big red arm of the law making its presence known.

You see, the city thinks that if you move, they have the right to inspect the home for safety. (Safety, my ass) And they pass the cost onto you or the tax rolls for the new buyer. Not only will you pay back property taxes, but you will pay an inspection tax also. Landlords that would normally see a deal have said forget it, because of the government intrusion, which they deemed that renters have more rights than we do. They inspect rental properties every year, at 180 bucks a pop.

The city tells the landlord what to fix, and don't even think of not doing it, or a red sticker will appear. The RED STICKER will not allow anyone to live there.Also, as a landlord in Michigan, you get the honor of paying 35% more in property taxes, courts that think landlords are slumlords, courts that think you are made of money, and usually rule for the tenant even if they destroy your property and refuse to pay the rent.

Even apartment buildings are subject to these crazy inspections every year, (the city has had to hire people to keep up, at first anyway) so you have the invasion of privacy on the renter, so the city can turn on lights and flush the toilet.What has resulted, is that landlords are running for the hills.

You might think that all these foreclosures are a result of sub-prime lenders. Think again. Landlords that took out a mortgage and now face all these costs and regulations have their own homes, and since they aren't making any profit, they are also letting these homes go. They lose the initial investment of 20% down, but many are saying its not worth it, let the bank have it.The prices that they are selling for is so low right now, that they cant sell them to recoup their investment.

Investors that want to try being a landlord are not interested, and normal buyers are not interested in catching up the taxes that are behind, along with any repairs that the city has cited.So, this grand experiment of the city to get more money from everyone, has resulted in a huge backfire of people saying screw it. They actually prefer the damage to their credit for 7-10 years than taking a huge loss that they cant afford.

The city is broke, the citizens are broke, and the red stickers are plenty. So, do you think the city would take a look at what they have done? Maybe change that and lay off people that make a whole lot of money telling others what to fix and what not to? Do you think the city would find a way to cut things to make it work? Offer incentives to sell these homes that are sitting empty rotting away?Oh, hell no. This middle class small city government says better days are ahead of them! No, better days were behind them.

Even apartment owners are selling the land, or making them into condos to get away from the city and its regulations. Renters are going to the outlying cities to rent because even they don't like the intrusion of government coming into their homes once a year.

As a retired Realtor, I would never buy one of these properties, even though I would love to get my one daughter into a home that she could possibly rent to own. But because I already own a home, a rental would cost me (and her) more taxes, yearly inspections of 180. bucks, plus any repairs that they deem for me to fix, and its just not worth it. So, this small city becomes a slum.

It shows what Democrats can do to a city, and a state, in a short amount of time.So, the Blue states lose residents, as the Red states prosper. It clearly irritated me enough to send off a letter to one of the councilman and ask "How's that working out for you?".
That was last week, and I have not gotten an answer.Because I am one that is in a position to buy one of those homes, instead, Ill save my money and watch it all go to hell.

That's the city where I was born. That's the city where my children were born. That's the city where my grandchildren were born. Now its where none of us live.
