    Let’s see…..use ignorant right wing meme to explain a complex problem that took about 50 years to happen. Tea brains (a term used in its loosest definition) are happy.

    Yes, equal outcomes are a Marxist fantasy that will never be fulfilled. Capitalism is the way to go!

    When Jap cars began to appear in the worker’s parking lot, the corporation should have taken note.

    The population went from 2 million to about 600,000.

    Obviously the tax revenue left with those people looking for work when imports were eating the auto industry’s lunch.

    Why? Because they continued to make cars Americans didn’t want. Thankfully the auto industry has learned that lesson but, too late for Detroit.

    Yeah, unions caused all of this…

    Never any management in Detroit, was there? Never any capital? Never any creative intelligence? Just the Doom of people working together in Union? What the hell’s a corporation but a Union?

    Grow some eyes, people. The Glen Gold Rush Standard ‘News’ Fox is eating your pathetic lunch.

    And have you considered the crooks and incompetent management? And the car companies wouldn’t have gone where they did if management had paid attention to the market. Don’t blame it on the workers, they didn’t get to make the decisions and don’t now that the “dictator” Orr is in town.

    You may be relatively new here. NeoconMan posts are satirical, often so well crafted that he seems serious to those not used to his craft.

    Referring very narrowly to the phrase “equality in America”: This is what sloppy thinking gets you. The equality referred to in the Constitution and which is part of our legal structure is equal application of laws to all classes and all persons, and all that that provides. (Not saying that we achieve that; just that that’s what is meant.)Sloppy / wishful thinking has extrapolated that to mean equal everything for everyone. That’s not even reasonable, but is a useful fulcrum for leveraging discontent and further unreasonableness.

    One of the greatest causes of cities lost income is the competition between cities and states for the little bit of manufacturing not outsourced to other countries. Give tax breaks to any who move to your area and to H___ with where they come from.

    By the way, the Edsel was a very good car.

    _ I am not an “elitist,” I am the “elite.” _
    When I was stationed at Ft Belvoir some years ago, I was once detailed to chauffeur some big-wig lobbyist around to some meetings in DC. She asked me about my ambitions, and I replied I was going to finish my education in Architecture (I had an AA already, and an ASC in Computer Science). She was literally dismayed that there would not be enough peons to go around. She said that education should be minimized for “low class” (her words) people to make sure there was enough cheap labor.
    Folks, they still have that philosophy, and are doing everything they can to fulfill it. NeoconMan is a wonderful satirist, but unfortunately there are people who seriously hold those views.

    Detroit is another reminder of the danger of excessive government debt. It leads to bankruptcy.

    It does not take a genius to figure out how a government gets to that point. The government begins spending more than what it is bringing in with taxes. To cover the difference, it borrows the money. As the process continues, year after year, the amount of debt it owes continues to increase.

    Finally, the government gets to the point where its tax revenues are insufficient to cover its bills and pay the interest on its debt. Creditors are unwilling to lend any more money. Unable to pay its bills in a timely fashion, the only recourse is bankruptcy.

    That’s what happened to Detroit. It’s also what happened to Greece.
