    What are you ranting about? I have provided evidence for everything asked of me.

    If you say otherwise, just present where I failed to do so. Either that or man up and retract your smart aleck comment.

    When those things happen, you will have a solid comparison.
    It seems that the only thing that hasn't happened out of those 4 points is 60% of people moving out of the US. Most of our major business manufacture their products overseas (which also reduces our tax base) and we have a large amount of unemployed people.

    Not really hitting the same numbers, but we have been on our way.
    Scientific fact: If you took all of the veins from your body and laid them end to end, you would die.

    Just like I said - you are woefully impotent to back up the allegations your mouth makes and your hands type.

    When it hits the level of Detroit, then the poster has a point. Until then, its over the top hyperbole bordering on the irrational.

    Your history of not backing up what you say and being ignorant to factual material is all across the forums, from this topic to gun rights. Any who have paid attention know it. And you do too, no matter how much you try to spin and deny it.

    No, that is not what happened. Orr filed bankruptcy without negotiating.

    But yet you are woefully impotent to actually provide a verifiable link or proof of even a single occurrence of the falsehood that you allege.

    And that says it all.

    But do prove me wrong. This time back up the checks you write but are unable to ever cash. Prove me wrong with evidence and chuck your empty self serving pontifications.

    And the economic meltdown that occurred brought a lot of cities to the brink because many never fully recovered.
