Libraries Blow Money on Business Cards for Janitors in Illiterate Detroit

Lyndon Johnson picked up where FDR left off in reducing the Land of the Free to a welfare slave state. An example of the ongoing damage that has been done by his malignant “Great Society” agenda is Detroit, a wealthy capital of industry prior to participating in his “Model Cities” program, which has been called America’s “first great experiment in centralized urban planning.” It is now a depopulated socialist hellhole that festers within the USA the way a metastasizing tumor exists inside a formerly healthy body.

News reports from the nation’s most liberal city are like postcards from the future our progressive ruling class has planned for us. Recently we learned that the former Motor City was spending $1,092 apiece on chairs and $1,112.50 apiece on trash receptacles for a library. But what Detroiters would be doing in a library (other than gawping at online pornography) is a mystery, because now we learn that only half the population can read:

According to a new report, 47 percent of Detroiters are “functionally illiterate.” The alarming new statistics were released by the Detroit Regional Workforce Fund on Wednesday.

WWJ Newsradio 950 spoke with the Fund’s Director, Karen Tyler-Ruiz, who explained exactly what this means.

“Not able to fill out basic forms, for getting a job — those types of basic everyday (things). Reading a prescription; what’s on the bottle, how many you should take… just your basic everyday tasks,” she said.

Meanwhile, the obscene waste continues:

A purchase order from March 2010 showing the cash-strapped Detroit Public Library spent more than $6,500 to buy business cards for all its employees — including clerks and janitors who questioned why they need them.

Library spokesman A.J. Funchess said each employee got 250 cards “to be an ambassador to their communities.”

“It shows everyone matters here at the library,” Funchess said.

Liberal thieves are looting the world into destitution for the sake of the oozing warm treacle of their nauseatingly pious feel-good sentiments.

There’s no reason to stop the maniacal spending, because when the last productive citizen escapes New Mogadishu, the state of Michigan will pick up the slack. When taxpayers run out of money statewide, Washington will step in. The Feds will never find themselves short of cash to waste, because they print their own.

When money has been inflated to worthlessness and the whole sickening spectacle collapses, America will be Detroit from coast to coast. Then the Democrat Party’s work will be done; straightforward communists will take it from there.

Detroit: Applied liberalism.
