    On the other hand, how many hundreds of billions of taxpayer money did the other banks get?
    Why are you saying that like its a justification?

    Bailouts was just paying for your own impoverishment, if you got robbed by a group of people, would you really let them off cause you think one of the robbers was a nice guy?

    What are you talking about? A justification for what? Which "nice guy"? You need to rephrase.

    You rephrased it for clarity, but initially came off like you were saying that because other banks received bailouts that it was not so bad.

    Nope...let the state deal with it. Their problem and the rest of the state ought to feel the pain. This isnt a case where some hurricane or tornado caused some unforeseeable tragedy. This is a nightmare that has been decades in the making. The city shouldnt go down in flames, but the right people ought to be tasked to fix the problem. Maybe Michael Moore and some of the rich liberals that bitch about how unfair it is there is such a wealth disparity should offer up their personal fortunes and fix the mess. Maybe invite a few hundred people to live on the estate.

    Yeah, but there was some value in doing those other things, presumably in terms of foreign good will and influence and economic stability.

    What do we gain from Detroit? Votes for Democrats, I guess, and the Democrats had those votes anyway.

    Detroit, not that long ago, was a great city... Manufacturing took flight overseas.....With some private and public investment, some incentives, etc. it could be a great city again.....Detroit has as much value as Chicago, New York City, Miami and Los Angeles or it could if it was revitalized.......

    Didn't we try bailing them out once? Didn't Obama say he saved Detroit from Bankruptcy? How is that working out for him?
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    He's saving up for bailing out Chicago, which has extremely large unfunded debts.
