    maybe republicans in Detroit did not know how to win elections, or they did not understand what the voting population wanted. maybe conservitives ideas of governing simply did not appeal to the people of Detroit.

    Or maybe UAW owned the city and were empowered by democrats/progressives and they brought their communist bull**** with them and Detroit fell just like the USSR.

    I can see that opposing views crave details when it does not jive with the spin that is going on here. The 7.4% rate is still bogus. If it is supposed to measure the labor market they should call it the Labor Market Rate. However they call it the Unemployment Rate, hence any reasonable person would expect it to accurately reflect the number of our workforce that is unemployed. Take away teenagers, disabled, retirees and full time students and include people who are 1) looking for work, and 2) people who gave up looking for work because it's too hard to find a job. Whether you stop looking or not you still DO NOT HAVE A JOB THEREFORE YOU ARE UNEMPLOYED. They should be included in the 7.4% but are not. Why? Because if the true number of unemployed was accurately reported it makes the current administration look bad. Why? because their economic policies are failing. This is a spin of the numbers, smoke and mirrors.... nothing up my sleeve BS. They exclude those who gave up looking because it makes their number look better. But everyone knows it looks and is bad.

    That is true, but the rate at which the workforce is declining under Obama is nearly triple what it was under Bush.

    dictatorships require absolute power. if democrats in detorit had absolute power, why did they allow elections to happen that could potentially elect their opponents into power? why did they still obey the state and federal constitutions?

    the only thing that comes close to meeting the actual definiton of being a dictator in detroit is the current emergancy financial manager, Kevin Orr, who was appointed by michgan govenor Rick Snyder to some how deal with detroits problems

    remember what the marriam webster dictionary defininition of a dictator was?

    Definition of DICTATOR
    1
    a : a person granted absolute emergency power; especially : one appointed by the senate of ancient Rome
    b : one holding complete autocratic control
    c : one ruling absolutely and often oppressively
    Kevin orr was appointed emergancy financial manager for the city of Detroit by govoner Rick Snyder. Kevin Orr job gives him powers to unilatterary decide what programs or services should be cut or stoped in order to fix detroits financial problems, and he is allowed to do it without the input of the city's elected council, or the people who elected the city council.

    a single person is appointed and given absolute power over a city's fate, able to act without the approval of Detroit democratically elected city council, or the will of the people.

    does that make Kevin Orr, the emergency financial manager for the city of detroit, by definition a dictator?

    conservative republicans could potentially know the cure for cancer and know how to achieve eternal life, but they will never get elected if they maintain a attitude of superiority and frown upon people just because they are members of a union. the auto industry was born and raised in Detroit and a republican cannidate must be naive if ticking off or shunning the auto industry is going to help win votes in the city of Detroit.

    but it was a choice. if detroit was run by democrats weilding absolute power like you are claiming, there would have been no choice.

    but there were elections, the people of detroit made their choice and voted for their choice.

    You are correct, and one reaps what they sow...
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...
