An EM for Detroit

An Emergency Manager is supposed to solve problems in the environment for which they are appointed.  So why is it that the EFM for Detroit Public Schools has attached a $1 million budget with his name on it?  If an EM operates on the same level as Roy Roberts, the City of Detroit is in for a very long, rocky ride and the only person benefiting from the deal will be the EM (whoever that is).  I can imagine the tongues hanging out as they salivate–ready to pounce on getting their hands on “easy money” as yet one more person helps themselves and not the purpose for which they were hired.  Come on people!  Wake up!  This is what happens when people don’t vote and don’t vote with wisdom.  An EM for Detroit will be around for a lot longer than the 18 months being touted–just look at other cities in Michigan and other school districts (including DPS) and see what is happening.

Check out the DPS Budget on their website (www.detroitk12.org).  Why does Roy Roberts need $1 million?  There are employees whose salaries have been cut so deeply that after 38 years of employment, they’re making less now than they did ten years ago.  That’s a shame and a disgrace that is attributable to all those who came into the school district with a sole purpose of ripping it off.  That is the future of Detroit with an EM!

The Lord Knows

The Lord knows–those who are His, our hearts, our thoughts from afar, our desires, our hopes, our dreams and the plans He has for our lives. Be confident in the knowledge that no weapon formed against us shall prosper because we have been given insight (through The Word) how to defeat the enemy and keep him under our feet! Through The Word, we find comfort, confidence, victory, healing, and blessings beyond any we could ever think of or imagine. Through The Word we are told how to spot the enemy at work–he comes to steal, kill, and destroy; he’s a master of deception and the father of liars. What more do we need to know? We have the victory over the enemy and know how to counter any attack levied against us. The praises of The Lord shall continually be in our mouths! Hallelujah–it’s dance time!
