    I cannot say whether he should or should not have been fired. I only object to the government nationalizing a car company and booting its CEO.

    Yes. Some of it. Reagan received a hollow military. I know. I was in it as a young officer. He fleshed it out. He used wise government spending, on Constitutional things like defense to defeat the Evil Empire.

    But yes. Your statement is reasonable. Going from a 230 ship Navy to an Navy over 500 ships created jobs in the private sector. Creating new, highly accurate ballistic missiles created many, well-paying jobs. Creating cruise missiles and stealthy aircraft all created many, many jobs. But all combined did not create anywhere near 17 million new jobs. Entrepreneurs did that. If government will remove its hands from around the throats of job makers an economic miracle could occur again.

    The literacy rate in Alabama is also a great deal higher than it is in Detroit, and with a much lower crime rate. here's hoping that the unions won't get the chance to do in Alabama what they did to Detroit.

    The illiteracy rate in Alabama is about double that of Michigan. Ouch.

    Yes, and I understand that it's nonsensical to compare the literacy rate of a state to that of a city. But if you really want to go there, the fact is that Wayne County, which is primarily composed of Detroit, has a lower illiteracy rate than the state of Alabama.

    The statement was that Alabama has a higher literacy rate than DETROIT. As usual you read what you want to read and believe what you want to believe regardless of of the issue

    Yeah, I get it, you cannot admit when you are wrong, 47% is higher than 25%

    Err, have you lost it completely? That article says nothing about Detroit. I already provided a link that shows that Wayne County, Michigan, which is composed entirely of the Detroit metro area, has a higher literacy rate than the entire state of Alabama. I guess it figures, based upon your responses, that it also has a higher literacy rate than Texas (which is even more retarded than Alabama).
