Socialism and large majority of blacks and you get Detroit. It is such an uphill battle for the blacks, due to the behavior of so many of them. I do not believe anyone is capable of turning Detroit around and this is where our country is heading if we do not take charge. All democats have to be voted out and then start weeding out any republican that even slightly drifts away from our Constitution. We very definetly need term limits and no lifetime pensions for less that 20 years of service.

What gets me is we keep paying welfare, section 8, and food stamp benefits with no return or productivity out of these people. Then they breed more of themselves to create more who want handouts.

Time some attitudes were changed in the black community to end resentment of whites, quit blaming whites for their problems and get to work! Just like the rest of us!

Term limits......yes. No pensions ever.

Sadly, fools never learn. The answer that they embrace will always be more handouts, more corruption, more blame, and "It-would-always-be-worse-if-the-Republicans-were in-charge" syndrome.

The hollowing out of Detroit is nearly complete. All that's left is a bankrupt shell of a city with no services and scattered citizens that do not pay taxes.
