This city will never recover.

Ya need to talk to "cripplecreek" who IMHO is wired to what is going on behind the scenes. It seems big and smart money is about to buy in low. He will give you the 411 on the Iron Ore and Tar Sands coming to the City via ships, how they will be powered by LPG, Trade and Manufacturing in Canada and a potential Manufacturing back in Detroit with resurgence of a healthy Detroit and how it may become a trading hot spot....

No 411 here. I'm just a conservative who pays attention. There's a degree of economic and individual freedom in Detroit that you won't find in other large cities in America. Meanwhile on the east and west coast companies are being slowly strangled by excessive taxation and regulation. JP Morgan just opened a regional HQ in Detroit. Quicken loans is importing people from other cities. During the Detroit Grand Prix, Firestone announced that they would be opening an R&D facility in Detroit.

Even at its worst, Detroit is still the second busiest freight crossing on the continent but its been bottlenecked by a single aging bridge. I think the approval for the new bridge has been one of the biggest factors bringing investment to the city.

When it comes right down to it, people need to stop giving Detroit the global warming treatment built on consensus opinions and start thinking for themselves realistically. Detroit isn't going anywhere and that's a simple fact. We can sit back and pout as the democrats pointlessly dump taxpayer money into the city while claiming credit or we can be traditional conservative builders and start taking back what is rightfully ours. Personally I think the current sit and pout attitude of conservatives is a sure fire loser.

The only true fix for Detroit and the other coming collapses of other larger cities are Family, Faith, and Free markets.

The major issue of this campaign is the direct political, personal and moral responsibility of Democratic Party leadership--in the White House and in Congress--for this unprecedented calamity which has befallen us. They tell us they have done the most that humanly could be done. They say that the United States has had its day in the sun; that our nation has passed its zenith. They expect you to tell your children that the American people no longer have the will to cope with their problems; that the future will be one of sacrifice and few opportunities.

My fellow citizens, I utterly reject that view. The American people, the most generous on earth, who created the highest standard of living, are not going to accept the notion that we can only make a better world for others by moving backwards ourselves. Those who believe we can have no business leading the nation.

I will not stand by and watch this great country destroy itself under mediocre leadership that drifts from one crisis to the next, eroding our national will and purpose. We have come together here because the American people deserve better from those to whom they entrust our nation's highest offices, and we stand united in our resolve to do something about it.

Why Detroit? What’s so attractive there? The infrastructure and school systems have crumbled. It’ll probably be paralyzed financially for years. Noting has changed one whit regarding the uneducated, welfare-dependent, violent population that will continue to elect criminals to “run” the city.

Why not just start over from scratch? Bulldoze some big fields and build a new city from scratch. Would be cheaper and more effective in the long run. Or just find a better city in the general vicinity.

My prediction is that anyone who invests significant money in Detroit will lose their shirts.
