None. Detroit is a one time incident
It'll be more than one next time
I believe half of the things I say and say half of the things I believe.
We're not practicing what we preach, folks. We like telling other countries what they should and should not be doing, when we need to take care of our own doorsteps first.
Fool me once, shame on you.
Fool me twice....shame on me.
Why would you think you could spend any time "educating" me, when according to you, everyone has a different take on what progressivism should be?
Obviously, your original description was meant to denegrate and insult "conservervatives", which I suppose should make the nothing but a bunch of "bog standard hack lines".
To her Wall Street owners: Hillary Clinton: “But if everybody's watching, you know, all of the back room discussions and the deals, you know, then people get a little nervous, to say the least. so, you need both a public and a private position.” - Hillary Clinton: "I'm kind of far removed from the struggles of the Middle Class"
My original post was about the OP. I said nothing about conservatives, and I invite you to prove otherwise. I didn't even look at his lean, because I don't care. What he said was sad no matter what lean he was.
You are the one generalizing to millions of people, not I. Sucks being what you hate, huh?
Most cities operate on a deficit. So broke is doing well. My city seems to be doing well.
It was a poll of cities. The city I answered with wasn't on the list - that's the only crime here.
You might want to take some time to find out why the OP has made a connection between the cities listed and their possible 'failure' and you'll see why my post was completely in order.
Stockton is significant because it has a population of 300,000 people, and when it filed for bankruptcy in 2012 it was the largest U.S. city in history to do so. Detroit could look to Stockton to see how it has been handling a similar problem. I'm not crying over anything, I'm just pointing out that saying "Stockton is next" makes no sense, and is rather ignorant. After Stockton the question was "who is next" and the answer is now Detroit--not the other way around.
