    It really is a shame seeing a U.S. City in the condition that it is with no one else to blame but Unions and the entitlement mentality. Detroit hasn't had a GOP Mayor since 1962 and the unions have run GM into the ground and the city of Detroit which has lost 25% of its population and is now a war zone. The unemployment rate in this bastion of liberalism is in the 20's and yet the cult followers are calling for more. Seems to me that the cult followers are true believers in a large central govt. and entitlement state. That is contrary to the Founders vision. We need to stop giving those cult followers the benefit of doubt and believe we all have the same values. We definitely don't and they are who I was afraid they were, leftwing radicals who wants to destroy the foundation upon which this country was built.

    Absolutely! I grew up in Lansing, and love the state. If you can get over the long winters there it really is a beautiful place to be. I had to get out of there in the early 80s, writing on the wall I guess. Ah well.

    I grew up in Ohio and Indiana spending a lot of time in Michigan, going to the Dunes and Mackinac Island summer after summer. Love the state but not what has happened to it.

    same thing to you, go to school and take a few economic courses...jobs lost would not have been limited to just union jobs...conservatives like to talk about things that 'trickle down' .....neither one of you understand squat about how the economy works.

    You, as usual fail to answer the question. Look Randel, as I have explained many times to you, growing up in Lansing MI, I had many, many friends that were UAW members, and worked in a varity of different businesses associated with GM and auto industry itself. And I also had some that were running profitable Mom, and Pop stores that relied on GM to be working. When strikes would happen, it purposely hurt these small businesses, but do you really think that the Union cared on wit about them? Other than to use them as leverage to get more and more consession from GM, and as propaganda fodder, No, no they didn't.

    Now look at the area, and it is repeated all over, in Ohio, in Indiana, in Baltimore MD. GM GONE to produce in other countries like Mexico, and you can thank your greedy, child like union members that couldn't see that they were not only killing the golden goose, but the states and communities they lived in as well.

    Thanks for your participation in that destruction.
