A malicious mathematical magician*
sat in his dungeon alone with the cool air blowing through his meticulously neat laboratory. His machines whirred and clicked as he quietly came up with a formula to bring an orange monkey to rule the land and do his bidding.
The orange monkey brought evil and sadness to the good people of the land. Darkness fell like a black blanket. He loved hate and the magician magnified it.** It fed his soul. But bananas..he was greedy and wanted all the bananas in the world. The malicious mathematical magician realized the orange monkey was out of his control. The magician thought he would get everything he wanted - rule the earth and make it the hateful place he imagined from his dungeon. For years he had been making magical spells for other evil people who bet on other people's misfortunes and profited off them.*** Now it was his turn. "It's not fair" he yelled and started to cry, causing a small fire amongst his machines.
The good people of the land had no idea the orange monkey came from the magician. They blamed each other, thinking they had brought the orange monkey on themselves!
As the orange monkey was now free of the magicians control, he realized he could do tricks for any rich person and he would get bananas. The mathematical magician realized that he had not computed the greed variable of the orange monkey himself. He pondered this. But now the monkey was a living breathing reflection of his own greed, running loose.
A witch from the land of many lakes**** gave the orange monkey bananas for her to be in charge of all the children of the land. The witch hated children. She wanted them to stop going to school and work for her - except for the rich children. She didn't want any of her money or the other rich people's money to go toward children learning reading or math. No chance for them to become mathematical magicians. She herself hated teachers - all of them. Even the ones who let children play games, made them laugh and gave out wonderful stickers and lollipops. She wanted poor children to work. She imagined them in dark mines, like the ones she already had in the jungle.***** Oh the gold they could mine for her! And she just had to give the orange monkey a few bananas to make her dreams come true.
Perhaps the good people of the land will find the malicious mathematical magician in his quiet dungeon****** and put him somewhere without his laboratory and his whirring and clicking machines - without even so much as a pencil to write 2+2. He could spend the rest of his life trapped with the orange monkey himself, watching those films school counselors have children watch about not being a bully and such.
This story is just the beginning. The malicious mathematical magician has not yet learned his lesson. (So its not really a fable. Sorry.) We will have to teach him that lesson. How will we do it? Will there be pitchforks and torches outside his dungeon? Will you be the person who saved the good people of the land?

If he wants to hurl an orange monkey at America, we should all feel free to call him, stop by or send a letter about how we feel. If corporations want to run the gov't, well, let's bring it home to them. Angry citizens no longer need to complain to their elected representatives who are just corporate front men.

From a Detroiter’s perspective a simple fix to this Trump situation is to just move the border to Canada up to 8 mile. Simply put up a fence and move the guard huts a few miles to the north.
We already have many of your Canadian geese. We grew up on Mr. Dress-up. Our bus drivers are already in the same union and the transition to one union would be amicable. Many of us haven’t been over since 9/11 because of the border rules, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t wanted to! We see how your tunnel bus comes on time while we wait hours to get five minutes from downtown. We have tried working with Washington DC but they only care about the super rich – its not working out for us now and certainly won’t work out in the future. Its time for us to explore other options. Its time for us to move on.
We don’t need to keep our name – we will be just a new section of Windsor – there is Sandwich, Walkerville, and…Detroitville or Detroitwich. We aren’t picky. You could do a contest at the elementary schools for them to come up with our new name. Change the river’s name if you like…We know Windsor carries the burden of being associated with industrial Detroit, but we pledge to do our best to make Windsor the jewel of Canada.
Health care for all, no more dirty rich pigs looting our assets and destroying our city. No more of the Paul Singer and the Manhattan Institute’s “Stop and Frisk”. All we have to do is have a volunteer day putting up a fence and wake up the next day with health care, living in one of the most well balanced, liberal, happy countries on earth. We have been jealous for years. Now is the time for us. Why stay and fight a madman? Life is short. We already drink Tim Horton’s and while roller skating is more popular, it is a skill very similar to ice skating. We will get some knick-knacks of the Queen and her corgis, perhaps commemorative plates to fit in. We will work on our manners, say the word “about” differently, learn curling. We will patronize chip wagons with zest and welcome them into our neighborhoods. While banana pudding is very popular, butter tarts could easily become a favorite. We need some encouragement to vote – our votes have been thrown in the Detroit River so long many of us don’t even try anymore. Maybe some voter group therapy. We will need help succeeding because we have been beat down so long - but we are dedicated citizens. With the same amount of effort most of us have put forth to get a pile of garbage picked up, a street light on, or an empty house boarded up, we could really redo a whole neighborhood with a supportive government. You will see this new section of Windsor blossom like nothing you could imagine.
Of course you will want to deport any ugly Americans who squeak in – more than likely you will find those in midtown and downtown in some $2,000/month loft that used to be low income housing. Others on the no fly list should be the exact pigs who have been turning Detroit into their garbage can for decades: anyone from Franklin, Michigan (this covers a wide assortment of scoundrels like Dan Gilbert and Dave Bing), Ada, Michigan (any DeVos), Mike Ilitch, Mike Duggan, Mattie Maroun, Roger Penske etc..Trust us Canada, you don’t need them.
Move over Toronto and Vancouver. In exchange for safe refuge we offer you:
- A water treatment plant worth billions
- Billions in art, a beautiful museum and library system
- Newly redone apt buildings downtown.
- Not one, but 2 hockey stadiums, an indoor practice rink and a couple more.
- A baseball stadium
- A football stadium
- Both sides of the Detroit River (water taxis anyone?)
- Belle Isle park – we could build a bridge to Peche Island. You get two yacht clubs in that deal – you want to name them the Windsor Yacht Club? Or maybe make them municipal marinas?
- A bridge and a train station
- A tunnel for cars and a train tunnel under the river
- An extensive school system with many new buildings
- A couple of casinos You could shut them down to make yours more profitable. No worries.
- A few historic housing districts and many architectural gems
- 600,000 very nice people who have been insulted by the media and portrayed daily in an unfavorable light, many jailed/killed unjustly, whose have been made, through municipal bankruptcy and election rigging, invisible. Essentially, refugees. Canada can avoid making costly refugee camps with this simple plan.
Detroiters, meet with on Tuesday evening. We will put up the fence ourselves. The suburbs have basically put up most of the fence already with their Detroit hate, so fortunately for us we just fill in the gaps. Like the giant flower pots they put up in Grosse Pointe to keep Detroiters out. At the end of the day we say thanks for taking care of that much of the new border for us.
Then we will move the huts with the guards, and voila! You may now enter Canada through Warren, Grosse Pointe, Redford etc. Although I have heard that parts of Grosse Pointe Park, Harper Woods and parts of Ann Arbor want to come along. Welcome everyone!
Buy our secession kit: No city left behind. Any city can afford to secede. You can’t afford not to. Not lucky enough to be close to Canada? Look at Alaska – why is that American? Even a small town in Mississippi could be like an island of Canada.
For $19.95 we will send you a booklet explaining how to move your local border further south or how to redraw your local map.
For $29.95 we will also send you instructions on building a wall from earth (if you can’t afford a fence) and a couple of border guards.
For $39.95 we will add to your package how to build weapons for your border guards – you could even make a catapult or just a gather a nice pile of rocks to throw.
Living well is the best revenge.
(Hope this little satire brightens up your day in the midst of this real horror.)

"Grand Bargain" is also the term used for cutting/ending social security. Here is one example but there are many more: http://crooksandliars.com/susie-madrak/grand-bargain-theyre-coming-our-socia
In the 8th Plan of Adjustment, PDF page 140, it explains: “Supporting Organization means the Foundation for Detroit’s Future, a Michigan nonprofit corporation, which is a supporting organization of Community Foundation of Southeastern Michigan (CFSEM), which was established to accommodate the contribution and payment of monies from the Funders, as contemplated under this Term Sheet, and will obtain 501(c)(3) status prior to the Closing.”

Parts of the Bankruptcy Third Amended Disclosure Statement, April 25, 2014
"(b) City-Owned Land
An estimated 22 square miles of land within City limits is government-owned, including parcels owned by the City, Wayne County and the State. Many of these parcels are vacant overgrown lots with illegal dumping or contain abandoned buildings in need of demolition. It has been estimated that the City owns approximately 60,000 parcels of vacant land and approximately 10% of the estimated 78,000 vacant structures within City limits. The vast majority of City-owned parcels have limited present commercial value. The City's efforts to address blight, remove vacant structures and encourage beneficial uses of City-owned land – which measures include initiatives involving the Detroit Land Bank Authority and the Michigan Land Bank – are addressed in Section IX.B.1 of this Disclosure Statement." PDF 109 Third Amended Disclosure Statement
"with respect to non-governmental stakeholders: the Detroit Economic Growth Corporation (a section 501(c)(3) entity contracted by the City to provide real estate, development and fiduciary services), the Blight Authority (a Michigan non-profit entity specializing in scale and brush clearing) and DTE (responsible for supplying or cutting power to blighted structures/parcels), among numerous other interested parties." PDF p 134 Third Amended Disclosure Statement
"8. Demolition Initiatives
In April 2010, the City launched a program to take initial steps toward addressing urban blight within the City. This program had the goal of demolishing 10,000 vacant structures (i.e., approximately 13% of the vacant structures within the City and 26% of such buildings classified as dangerous) within three years. Over 5,000 structures had been demolished, but the City lacked sufficient funding to complete the project by its target date of December 2013. The City also
commenced an ancillary demolition initiative in partnership with the State, pursuant to which $10 million has been allocated to the targeted demolition of 1,234 structures located in the vicinity of schools. As of February 28, 2013, 179 structures had been demolished pursuant to this ancillary initiative (and another 56 were under contract to be demolished)." PDF Page 140 Third Amended Disclosure Statement
"As more fully described in Exhibit I, the City intends to distribute the $1.40 billion in reinvestment as follows: Blight Remediation $440.3 million" PDF Page 172 Third Amended Disclosure Statement Note: This is the highest line item in the entire "reinvestment."
"1. Blight Removal
Reduction of urban blight is among the City's highest reinvestment priorities. The City anticipates that a substantial reduction in blighted structures and properties would, among other things: (a) stabilize the City's eroding property values and property tax base; (b) allow the City to more efficiently and effectively deliver municipal services; (c) improve the health, safety and quality of life for City residents; (d) foster increased land utilization within the City; and (e) dramatically improve the national perception of the City. To this end, the City proposes to invest a total of $440.3 million over the course of the next six Fiscal Years to
remediate residential blight within the City. Among other things, this investment will allow the BSEED to increase the rate of residential demolitions from an average of 450 demolitions per month to an average of approximately 725 per month. The City intends to focus its initial demolition efforts around schools and other areas identified by the Detroit Works Project and the Detroit Future City project. The City estimates that it will invest the following amounts toward blight
removal during each of Fiscal Years 2014 through 2019:
Fiscal Year Expenditure
2014 $3.2 million
2015 $113.6 million
2016 $103.5 million
2017 $80.0 million
2018 $80.0 million
2019 $80.0 million
These efforts currently are – and will continue to be – complemented by discrete blight remediation efforts. For example, the Michigan State Housing Development Authority has allocated $52 million to the City (out of $100 million received from the U.S. Treasury from its "Hardest Hit Fund"). These funds – administered through the Detroit Land Bank Authority (in conjunction with the Michigan Land Bank) – will allow for blight elimination on 4,000 to 6,000 publicly owned residential structures over a 15-month period. Other complementary blight elimination efforts include: (a) a pilot program implemented by a nongovernmental non-profit agency (addressing blight in the Eastern Market and Brightmoor sections of the City); (b) the "Hantz Woodlands" urban farming project, in connection with which a 150-acre, 1,500-parcel tract of land on the City's lower east side has been acquired by a private party and is being cleared of blight and maintained; and (c) the devotion of $12 million in recently repurposed HUD funds for the targeting of commercial demolition during Fiscal Year 2014. Additionally, in September 2013, President Obama's administration announced a planned investment of $300 million in public and private aid to the City, a portion of which would be earmarked for blight removal efforts. As set forth at Section VII.C.7.c, remediating blight requires the coordination of – and the City intends to coordinate with – a multiplicity of government agencies at the local, state and federal levels, and certain interested nongovernmental organizations. Coordination and cooperation among these entities is critical to the success of the City's reinvestment efforts....In so doing, the City can raise investor
confidence and effect lasting change in economic growth and quality of life. In developing its blight removal initiative, the City has taken into account the proposals set forth in the Detroit Future City Strategic Framework (the "Strategic Framework"), and the City" PDF Page 172-173 Third Amended Disclosure Statement

"For instance, in response to a question from Charles Brunie – a founder of Oppenheimer Capital [includes Oppenheimer and Co.] and former chairman of the Manhattan Institute – Raimondo seemed to indicate that she’s open to privatizing, or selling outright, state assets. She also suggested that, due to her private sector background, she outworks lawmakers and other public servants and employees at the state house."

- "One of the emails dated January 31, from Dan Moss, an associate at Jones Day who worked with Orr on the Chrysler bankruptcy and restructuring, told Orr the “ideal scenario” would be for Detroit Mayor Dave Bing and Snyder to “go through an orderly Chapter 9.” Moss then stated his own reservations about whether an emergency manager would be useful in a city where his powers would be questioned at every turn, versus bankruptcy, where a federal judge simply dictates to the city what to sacrifice. Others involved in the discussions include Jones Day Managing Partner Stephen Brogan, Jones Day Partner Corinne Ball and Rick Snyder's Transformation Manager Richard Baird." http://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2013/07/24/detr-j24.html
