“Yes, it’s always been a mystery to me that the media remains liberal despite their certain knowledge that liberalism breeds problems with attaining and maintaining economic prosperity.”

Power, not prosperity. Communism was never about prosperity.

You’ve got to be kidding me? They actually had the audacity to write that?

Of course. Detroit is part of the plan for all of us. The left wants power, and they are perfectly fine with casting all of humanity in a pit of misery so they become the only option for any hope at all. For them to have power you have to lose all control over your life. No self-reliance or work ethic or morality to guide you. Only trust in them as they hold absolute power.

Their plan is working exactly as they intend. Romney and Bush got to share the blame for the last four years which were engineered by democrats.

They say, "The worse it is, the better it is," and "Never let a crisis go to waste." Their allies in the media warp reality and hide the truth while they play on the darkest human emotions such as envy, racism, hatred, and self-pity to turn the country against itself. They are planting a very dark, evil seed and the crop it produces will be very ugly for us all.

” Now they have a former NBA basketball player as mayor. “

Well, I think he also did...”fairly well” as a businessman, owner of steel companies. He certainly could have retired very well off years ago but he took this extremely tough job as a civic responsibility. I don’t think he can be classified as a loafer...

That was not my inference. But he, like his predecessors, has not been successful You can go 90 MPH in entirely the wrong direction. Liberalism does that to people.

Let's give that a little due emphasis.

Detriot got what it deserved when they elected a hardcore Communist Party member as mayor, Coleman Young; kept electing a hardcore Communist as their Representative, John Conyers Jr., and kept electing Communist Party supporters (then DSA leaders) as the head of the City Council (Maryann Mahaffey and Erma Henderson), plus Jackie Vaugh, I believe a Cockrell was on it, Carl Levin, and other leftists.

As you sow, so shall ye reap.

Let us not forget Kwame Kilpatrick. Purveyor of all things shady, criminal, and downright ghetto.

If the city needs a quick ten million the police could raid a few hundred drug stash houses. All the pot seized could be sold to the folks in Colorado now that pot is legal there and the proceeds plus cash seized would easily make ten million.

"I thought it was bankrupt for years."

Intellectually and morally it has been ever since Coleman Young was Mayor.

Wow! Maybe time to change the city’s name to “Mogadishu on the lake”?

Re your power 51. Yes, I do realize that communism is all about power, not prosperity. What I don’t get is why the leaders of these companies are willing to surrender their economic status for the far-away goal of power. That takes enormous dedication to the communism ideal, something beyond my understanding. After all, why would anyone be willing to give up their livelihood in the here-and-now?

I think it was the Attorney General Schuette. He is pretty good about these things. Has a pretty sharp staff.

It was a weird opening to an article and of course it was absurd. The thinking (in case it wasn't obvious) is that Detroit had had Democrat mayor after Democrat mayor. They spent lots of money year after year. They put all kinds of useless programs in place. They created a vast class of dependent people, and chased away all of the productive people.

Then the money ran out. And things got really, really ugly.

If government stops funding useless programs, stops feeding the dependency class -- what happens? Well, it ain't pretty.

Which is why (in the Rolling Stone vision) we must avoid Republican government at all costs.

a city has no money, so it's going to strike a deal with itself ...

A country has no money, so it strikes a deal with itself...and prints more money.

“Let us not forget Kwame Kilpatrick. Purveyor of all things shady, criminal, and downright ghetto.”

For sure, but then he had his mother Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick to serve as a role model. But let’s not forget the Cokerel’s and Martha Reeves ( from Martha and the Vandellas). And the list wouldn’t be complete without Monica Conyers ( who went to jail for 37 months for corruption) while her husband continued on as “their” congressman. There isn’t enough ink to list all the crooked black politicians in Detroit ( as well as a lot of other places).
I guess when Detroit finally goes under, they can really get back to their “roots” by building mud huts where a once proud city stood. And they can invite their muzzie “brothers” down from Deaborn, roast a dead animal and have a celebration of their success.
