A sledgehammer approach is the best way to make this point. You should be thanking me for throwing the truth in your faces instead of pussyfooting the problem.
    I don't believe you for a second. Your OP was practically reveling in it.

    Not by your understanding, it isn't.
    Then you've answered your own question.

    Amazing how none of my post gets addressed. Spit and sweat? Riled up? what are you talking about?
    Never said I hate Catholics (because I don't) - you assumed I did and you are wrong. (like most of your post).

    Your warped senses told you that. My job is to throw the truth at the parasites defending Detroit's failure.

    Which has nothing to do with your point, to begin with.

    That's where I grew up, which is why I rarely accept excuses for failures. I was the minority, staying near the house to be safe and putting in extra study time to make sure my adult life wouldn't be in that type of area full of hoodlums.

    Well, fake "true partiots" as well as all the other attributes you posted. Progressives certainly are that and more.

    So yeah, smug sadistic bigotry doesn't help anyone, and it runs really contrary to the stated ideals of the people doing it.

    Wow. How the hell did ya'll get that from the OP? That is so far out in left field that it is from the left field of a stadium three cities over.

    Re: Which City is Next?

    I have no clue which city will be next. But probably one with high taxes, without Right to Work and who restrict their citizens from defending themselves. Inner city crime in the liberal welfare areas exist in most cities above a certain size, I don't think it is a factor in whether a city fails or not.
