#1 I used to live in Detroit and have many friends who still do. This is a tragedy.

And is the leading example for where the US is headed as we follow the same policies with the same sort of corrupt government.

Look well, America. You'll be just like this in 5-10 years, if not sooner.

#2 Again, THE MORE BAD OR WORSE THINGS ARE, THE BETTER FOR ANTI-US LEFTISTS-GLOBALISTS + ANTI-US OWG + NAU, where differentiated regional Nation-States will be "forced" to depend on one another just for simple survival

SNAFU > nearly every day as per the MSM-Net Americans = Amerikans see the Fed surrender steadily + in piecemeal to the future OWG + OWG NAU 2015. CALL ME WEIRD BUT I DON'T SEE MEXICO, CANADA, + GREENLAND, ETC. SURRENDERING AS FAST OR AS DUBIOUS AS WASHINGTON = BAMMER + ADMIN ARE.

#3 Corrupt political machines, unions, and crime can only survive as long as the host [business and industry] continues to breath and thrive. When the host dies, the parasites migrate to government for their sustenance or find a new host elsewhere.

When the government host finally dies, well, then you have a very real problem.

#4 ... a bold plan to revitalize Belle Isle by having the city sell it for $1 billion to investors who “believe in individual freedom, liberty, and free markets.” The investors would be given freedom to set up an “enterprise zone,” which would have self-governing commonwealth status with the U.S. much as Puerto Rico and the Northern Mariana Islands have. The new Belle Isle would have a top rate of 10 percent on income taxes, and no taxes on capital gains, dividends, investments, or estates.

Here's an idea: why don't we make the whole damn country an "enterpreise zone" with business-friendly policies like those described above. Be nice if these folks would stop rent-seeking long enough to at least try to explain the validity of these policies to the low information crowd.
