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.
“We do not believe any group of men adequate enough or wise enough to operate without scrutiny or without criticism. We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it, that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire. We know that in secrecy error undetected will flourish and subvert”. – J Robert Oppenheimer.
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.
