    I put this up so that you can see what kind of men lead the Detroit School District. The woman who wrote this is named Rochelle Riley, she is a columnist for the Detroit Free Press and is a died in the wool progressive. Notice the bit about halfway through the piece where she references the fact that not only was the man in question a pervert, he was also functionally illiterate....and he was the President of the school board!

    I've lived in a lot of places in this country, and some of them are pretty screwed up (California and Massachusetts I'm looking at you), but I was born and raised in Detroit and I currently live here. As bad as a few other places are I swear to God that sometimes living in Detroit is like living in Bizarro land. Only in Detroit would this be tolerated.

    I can't wait to move back to the DFW Metroplex.

    I guess if you hire or appoint the stupid ones, they'll do anything you want. Pathetic. Just pathetic.

    Google this jamoke. He was accused by a school superintendent of fondling his genitals for 20 minutes during a meeting with her...subsequently submitted his resignation...subsequently rescinded his resignation. Sex acts by Otis Mathis a terrible example to kids | Detroit Free Press | freep.com

    There's a backstory here that would raise our hairs...

    No wonder Detroit is a complete disaster.

    I wouldn't call Reaganomics and the failure of the 'trickle down' theory of the 80's liberal. I'm mean, that's just a moronic statement.

    Only a completely uneducated person would blame only 'liberalism' for poverty.

    I have to assume the poster hasn't the background to understand the complicated economic and public policy issues that created poverty in the Detroit area.

    If you believe it's that simple, then there's really no point to you continuing in a serious thread.

    I don't know what level you reached in school -- but at some point you should have encountered U.S. History, Poli Sci, and some social studies. At some point you would have learned that there are various levels of government, local, city, state, federal... All with various policies, sometimes conflicting.

    I don't know if you've ever read anything high school level or above on Economics, but to tie a city's poverty level to one single factor, the particular party of a city's mayor, is laughably stupid... A simpleminded talking point RW media tries to sell to their flock.

    Why don't you pick five cities, and lay out for us the particular 'liberal' policy(s) that resulted in the poverty?

    The Porta Potty known as Detroit.......
    And while you're knocking a major American city, why don't you tell us what city you live in. "Undisclosed".??

    Badmutha you causal relationship fallacy aside, can you or any of those who blame teachers and unions actually show any evidence? Like I said, I love sarcasm and humor, but actual debate requires some factual evidence. i would like to do more here than make fun of your fallacious arguments.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    It's the parents assuming, that the teachers are supposed to teach everything.
    ****ty parenting is the number 1 problem.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I said we can make it complicated if you want........

    .........what local Detroit Democrat policies are encouraging growth?....welcoming Business?....providing a better education for da childen?

    I don't know what level you reached in school -- but at some point you should have encountered U.S. History, Poli Sci, and some social studies.

    Cities with Democrat Mayors....tend to have Democrat City Councils.....Democrat School Boards.......Unions.....High Crime.....High Unemployment....High Poverty....and an unbearable stench........

    .....there are many factors involved.......all of which pale in comparison to the ever growing problem of Statism.

    Whydon't you pick five cities, and lay out for us the particular 'liberal' policy(s) that resulted in the poverty?
    The Poorest American Cities of 2008 (1-5)

    5. Miami, 25.6% in poverty--Democrat Mayor for the last 52 years

    ......DECADES of Democrat leadership later........where is the Utopia?


    And while you're knocking a major American city, why don't you tell us what city you live in. "Undisclosed".??
    Im knocking a porta potty of an American City.......The end result of Liberalism........a black eye of the country.
