    In any governments in the world today, there will be bias or favored
    groups, they are the people that contributed the most to the official’s
    campaign. It’s just the way this system work. Let’s say if the government
    didn’t bail out GM, the US auto industry would’ve dropped off a cliff. At
    least now we get the 10-15 year slow decline, that’s much easier for most
    people to adjust to. Just like when UK bailed out British Leyland,
    eventually BL went bankrupt, but that extended the live of UK’s auto
    industry for years.?

    Interesting to note, UAW is exempt from Ocare.?

    Oh the irony, Detroit produced enough armaments to crush fascism….. which
    led to the Fascistic military industrial complex ……..formerly known as
    the USA.?

    Black liberals have run detroit since 1974

    Detroit – Liberal Democrat Utopia ?

    Until the people vote out the entire leadership from the top down, nothing
    will change. The corruption is rampant and has become a habit with every
    mayor and city council member who’s ever sat in the seat of leadership.?

  8. James Freeland says:

    they repayed tarp moneyt with secret loans they got they didn’t make money
    then pay it back?

    What happens when you let a ‘hip hop mayor’ run your city?

    I have a theory as to why the U.A.W., SEEMINGLY, was the “favored child” of
    the Obama administration in regards the financial reorganization of the
    automakers; firstly the U.A.W. is an ICONIC BRAND in the minds of the
    Amerikan people and in classic form Obama and his cohorts used the
    ICONOGRAPHY to portray him as being sided to labor, classic intellectual
    deceit. Has Obama been beneficial to labor? Well the short answer is
    NOOOOO, everything from “I WILL RENEGOTIATE N.A.F.T.A.” (never happened) to
    the current push for the T.P.P.?

  11. Joel Cole says:

    Detroit has been governed by dumbocraps for the past 50 years. Coincidence?
    I don’t think so. When the current reign of dumbocraps took power the
    population was 1.6 million. By the time it went bankrupt, the population
    was less than half that.

    Should we be surprised? Of course not. Dumbocraps ruin things. Look at how
    Berry Obozo is trying to ruin the whole country.?

  12. Jasper666ism says:

    Detriot need’s help!?

  13. John Smith says:

    The whole rest of the country is going to look like Detroit , only worse
    and in the next two years. And even a Ron Paul can not change that out
    come. Hold on to your hat, your in for a rough patch of road ahead for the
    next fifteen years.?

    There is no reason any more to concentrate auto manufacturing in Detroit.
    So auto manufacturing has left Detroit, and will never return. GM still has
    its HQ in Detroit, but those white collar guys live in Grosse Pointe or in
    Oakland county. If Detroit is to resume growing, it will have to find a
    new economic direction. I think Detroit should contract to the area east of
    I94. The blighted buildings must be razed.

    Most GM and Chrysler employees neither live nor work in Detroit. Hence
    bailing out GM and Chrysler in no way bailed out Detroit. If GM had gone
    under, the Poletown plant would have been sold to someone. Detroit would
    have lost the revenue resulting from the 1.2% city income tax on
    nonresident GM executives. Otherwise little would have changed.

    I cannot fathom why GM built a plant by condemning a viable working class
    neighbourhood, rather than a half vacant dying neighbourhood, where the
    condemnation cost per acre would have been substantially lower.

    Detroiters are violent and disrespect property, in ways that make it
    impossible to attract new business activity to Detroit. Until that changes,
    there is no hope of a turnaround.?

  15. James Freeland says:

    funny the only people they talk to wear suits not flannel shirts the same
    people who helped to steal money and blame unions even though unions play
    a big part?

  16. Ahmad Nader says:

    if you play SimCity you will know exactly what is going on with this city.
    Gotta go and plot a new city called Detroit and mess it all up!?

  17. James Freeland says:

    central economic planning the federal reserve and endless lunatic corrupt
    wars and war mongers is a huge part of the entire country is joke?

  18. Carson Chan says:

    The oppressed in turn become the oppressors!?

  19. Jeremy Deville says:

    silly democrats?

  20. Dwight E Howell says:

    When google is blocking thumbs up something is wrong.?

  21. scott helft says:

    “Live free or die” describes the free market capitalist operating under a
    constitutional republic that allows one to govern themself under the rule
    of law .. “Live for free then die” describes a fascist socialist market
    operating under democracy that believes people are not capable of governing
    themselves. Both examples of government allow a person to pursue their self
    interest however the outcome is very different. When a person is allowed to
    pursue the property of others and this plunder is legal, it is socialism
    and it will fail. When a person pursues property without plundering others
    , this is what made Detroit great.?

  22. JimInPT says:

    Detroit is the Obamacare of cities.?

  23. Ks Knight says:

    may the lord bless the liberals w/wisdom and clarity for all our sake
    because it seems that they will find any rationale to blame someone else
    for their own policies.?

  24. Bert Collins says:

    BANKRUPT…. How Cronyism And Corruption Brought Down Detroit?

  25. Spartyal says:

    History will record the death of American Capitalism was when ” Too Big Too
    Fail ” was politically profitable. GM no longer reports North American Car
    sales knowing that number would expose what a sham the bailout was.?

    “Shuttin Detroit Down” by John Rich
    This song is about how people of the working class are losing jobs while
    the bosses get bonuses. It also talks about workers on Wall Street getting
    rich while the workers in Detroit are getting fired from their jobs and
    getting poor. #lcsgov2014 #week2 #P5 ?

  27. Sandy Carver says:

    Who can argue that they weren’t shutting Detroit down now. I hope Obama
    rots in hell?

  28. Will Pierce says:

    Don’t blame Wall Street….. Blame the unions and mostly those who speak
    for them?

    Shutting Detroit Down?

  33. cntrydb says:

    Things are not getting better, they aren’t allowed too. The current
    administration came in with hope and change, but have helped the bankers,
    and oil companies and government officials ONLY. want evidence/ Gas price
    now nearly double 6 years ago. Hurts middle class. Credit card interest
    rates up almost 10 % thanks Dodd Frank! Hurts middle class. Cost of health
    insurance, if you can figure out if you actually have it? deductibles up by
    thousands of dollars and monthly rates at least 10% higher if you are
    lucky. Kills middle class. These are all due to policies, not free market
    forces. This is why the gap between rich and poor is widening. Not because
    of minimum wage rates or “Evil” rich people. WAKE UP, It’s your government
    that is killing your prosperity!! capitalism works, government restriction

    years, and when they gave me my pink slip the security guard was there to
    walk me out. He’d been there less than a year. Thanks OBAMA!

    Next time you get a loan, or use a credit card remember to think about
    where the real power of your government is. Pay cash…. if you can. May
    God Bless America. Fraud is okay if it is the bankers btw….. very few
    courts are seeing otherwise. Just thought I would share…

    You know what’s sad? It’s sad that this has been going on for four years,
