Bankruptcy in Detroit is a long time coming....the only thing keeping that mess afloat has been huge amounts of money blackmailed (no pun intended) from the State and Federal governments...."give us money or we'll riot" is really a mentality there. The goal and aim of the Obama administration has been financial ruin of the US from before the very beginning. Obama is just the "face" or shill because that's what he's good at. I suspect his stuttering leadership and hesitation moves are simply his waiting fr orders or guidance. Now that he's re elected, I see no reason not to push and shove to the financial cliff and OVER in an effort to get to it and get it over. The sooner the country fails, the sooner we get to Civil War or Revolution.
