    Besides declaring bankruptcy, they are tearing down houses that are almost new. .A bit of corruption there.

    Update, Declaring bankruptcy is against Michigan’s constitution, according to a judge in Ingham County.

    SomeOne stated “the poor you will always have…”
    Givers and takers, the takers are more and the givers are feeling overwhelmed.
    The point will come when we no longer can give enough, giving up luxuries no longer can make up the difference.
    Only two choices for the takers who have nothing, die, or die trying to physically take what vouchers no longer exist for.
    This is what all forms of government want to avoid, at any cost.
    No one wins in warfare.

    I feel for Detroit and an answer will be found. These answers get tougher with each city.
    I feel for America.

    Detroit has givers and takers, some One once said “the poor will always be among us…”
    Sometimes it seems they are in the majority and in bankrupt cities the poor are in truth the majority.

    When the givers are no longer able to give, when all the luxuries have been cut and nothing remains to give, those poor will no longer have sustenance.
    Two choices exist for starving animals, die, or die fighting for food.
    Any party, any form of government, none of them will allow this.
    Detroit will be saved, and the next cities as well, they have to be.
    Eventually the time will come…
    I feel for America’s choices.

    I won’t take you up on that bet; it’s a sure bet.

    sneered "Forty percent of Detroit receives food stamps. “

    Bloody needy, poor people! If only we simply eradicated poverty then we wouldn’t be stuck with these leeches.

    ”No one will start a business there because they know that the stock will be stolen the minute it comes in the door."

    I spotted a business opportunity right there: swing doors!

    Detroit is a post-apocalyptic place. That’s what happens to empires after they collapse.

    WRONG! That’s what happens when you start outsourcing jobs to China, India, and every third world sh(word)hole on the planet.
