A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
No, we shouldn't bail a city out that's run itself down the tubes with constant, blatant corruption. Citizens and employees should have looked at the self inflicted downfall of Detroit, starting decades ago, and realized that it was time to pack up and leave or come up with a plan for success. I think bailouts would just enable more failure.

It's not going to work, as has been proven over the ages, yet they are trying. "Fair share" is only for the serfs, not the elite class who envision themselves worthy of more. If this is Utopia, it isn't going to work in America--we're too used to striving for better, and will fight for it! :

Reminds me of the Grasshopper and the Ant. Or the Little Red Hen who did all the work required to get her loaves of bread made, and had no help from the lazy ones until it came time to eat the bread--then they were happy to help!
There's a reason these life lesson stories have endured over the ages!
I don't think we should bail them out. I think we should investigate and prosecute. Same with "too big to fail."
We do not know if they are excessive or not...
I have heard " a dime on the dollar" the value right now ?
Heartless in spades.
If , say 80 cents on the dollar, then, yes its a hit, but not a killer..
The truth needs to be open and public...
As to Detroit's location, as opposed to , say, San Francisco.....or NYC.
I remember the Chrysler Building in NYC....would this not be Chrysler's headquarters ?
Action should have been taken then ...and this applies to every city in our nation.
Now, thanks to irresponsible government, and the people not caring ....they will suffer - this , sadly, necessary.
