PHOTOS: A crumbling Detroit…

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

There’s nothing like Detroit, especially this time of year. They keep voting for liberal democrats and they keep remaining in dire economic straits. Elections have consequences and for Detroit those consequences include the city slowly but surely falling apart.

“The pictures of what is happening in Detroit are just phenomenal,” Glenn said this morning on radio. “It’s horrifying. This is an American city.”

“It looks like there was a plague. It was a progressive plague. Progressive policies that just killed everything.”

Glenn said that if anyone was thinking of filming an apocalyptic movie, they don’t need to look any further than Detroit. They sets are already built.

“Next year we have to go up to Detroit. Do we have enough security to be able to go into some of these neighborhoods where they’re not patrolling anything anymore. How would you go in? Do you need permits anymore? How do you even do that? Who owns these things anymore.”

“Have you been to Detroit lately.  I was in Detroit four years ago.  It’s terrifying.  You’re standing up and what was it the Ford tower the General Motors tower or something and I was looking over the city at night.  I’m telling you it looks like Baghdad.  It looks like Baghdad.  It looks like a city that has been at war for twenty years.”

On radio, the guys browsed photos from an abandoned school in Detroit where images of the city in its prime were juxtaposed over the dilapidated building.

Check out some of the photos below (More on TheBlaze):

TheBlaze explained:

Some would argue the city of Detroit has experienced a boom and bust like no other in the last century. With the automotive and factory industry in the 1920s and onward spurring the city’s population, infrastructure to support it followed. But industry changes led to economic downfall that depressed the city, causing much of the population to leave, while its infrastructure remains, crumbling.

The website Detroiturbex.com is featuring the dilapidated state of the city. It states that “Detroit has no other option but to change.” The project is on hand “documenting that change.”

One of its projects is of the abandoned, original building of Cass Technical High School. Detroiturbex put together eerie then and now images. Here are just a sampling of those:

    OK, no one will say it, but I will! Detroit’s decline began with the super corrupt Coleman Young era! Young drove out the wealthy of ALL colours! That crook Kilpatrick and his parents and cronies did nothing to help either!

     The Coleman Young era started with the people of Detroit saying The Hell With the Producers–pretty much what we are seeing now. Ol’ Coleman was but the thug on scene to take advantage. But the the UAW was and is a marxist organization which still promotes “hurt the Man” and class envy. It is a disease spreading all across the nation.We are a dying nation and when the collapse comes there will no Big Sam to help out.It was the collapse of our banking system in 1929 and again under Dear Old FDR 1933 that threw the whole world into depression.

    Frankly, I think Ford, Gm and the rest should move their car factories to some other big city in the nation.  Most of the people in Detroit don’t want to work anyway.  Let Obama give them everything they want. Just move the car companies.  There are a lot of people wanting jobs in the rest of the country. Oh, they should stay out of California too.  And no more unions!

    I have been traveling to Detroit on and off over the last 25 years. I have never been impressed with Detroit or the surrounding areas, and consider it the place God would give the world an enema…

    But hey, what do I know? I’m just a silly conservative living in the South were my taxes are low(er) than other areas and we have a boom going on like you can’t believe. As well as a conservative Governor and Statehouse. And while not as plentiful as BO (Before Obama), there are jobs here.

    And I’ll one up JohnnyCanuck: look at cities run by Black Dems and they are falling apart at an alarming rate. Because as much as the blacks think that ‘whitey’ is the issue, their ‘own’, which they re-elect over and over again because they are black, have become the new plantation owners, stealing from them and keeping them down so that they can run again and again on race baiting.

    And the general population of black voters keep thinking that somehow they are ‘sticking it to the man’, when in fact they are getting it right up the ‘exit hole’ every single day by their own.

    Look out America because Detroit is just the prelude to what we can look forward to in the coming years throughout this nation. 

    Stockton, California has broken their 2011 homicide record.  Yesterday they had their 68th or 69th homicide for the year and we’re not even halfway through December.

    Detroit, Stockton, Oakland (CA), San Francisco (CA’s sanctuary city), and many many others have been under progressive Liberal rule for years and look where it has gotten them.  Deteriorating schools, unfriendly business environments, astronomical taxes, out-of-control spending, over-lapping Social programs, free entitlement programs, etc., etc., etc.

    If we go off the “fiscal cliff” than so be it.  Austerity seems to be the only way to stop this out-of-control madness from continuing.

    Love your “Vlad The Impaler” icon–to this day Vlad remains an iconic hero to Romanians for driving out the Islamic Imperialist hordes! Yes, he was brutal, but he was effective & his tactics were in response to heinous brutalities by others. Ok, back to the issue under discussion: Detroit is but a symbol of the result of decades of poisonous ‘Progressive’ policies at work in what was once one of the crown jewel cities of the Midwest. Sad to see it in this state–more homes abandoned & dilapidated than are occupied, packs of wild dogs roaming the streets, an unemployment rate more than double that of the national average, the list just goes on. Why do these people continue to vote for the same party that has devastated their city?

    a reminder –

    Detroit City Councilwoman JoAnn Watson is demanding a
    bailout from President Obama because the majority of the people in the city
    voted for him, so she thinks they deserve payback. She wants the bacon!
    “Our people in an overwhelming way supported the re-election of this president
    and there ought to be a quid pro quo and you ought to exercise leadership on
    that,” said Watson. “Of course, not just that, but why not?”
    Nearly 75 percent of Wayne
    County voters pulled the
    lever for Obama in November.
    “After the election of Jimmy Carter, the honorable Coleman Alexander Young, he
    went to Washington, D.C. and came home with some bacon,” said
    Watson. “That’s what you do.”Young served as Detroit’s mayor for 20 years and served as
    vice chairman of the Democratic National Committee from 1977 to 1981.
    Didn’t we already bailout Detroit
    with millions? And who are “our people”??

    I was a resident of Michigan until 1981, at which time, I, along with thousands more moved to the south where they could find jobs.  Been here ever since and would not even think about moving back under any circumstance.  My brother has been trying to sell his place (40 acres + home, shop, etc)  and can not sell.  It has been 8 years.  A nephew has been trying to sell for 4 years, a small condo in Oakland(suburb of Detroit) and can’t sell.    The only people living there, can not move out for economic reasons or family or who knows what.  I blame the UNIONS and the Car manufactures for being greedy and arrogant, who did not realize what was happening over 40 years ago.  The first crisis for the auto industry was 1973, then 1979 and ever since one crisis after another.  Also, like others have said, liberals, socialists and marzist have self destroyed the state.  Its a shame, because Michigan is a beautiful state, BUT!!!!!!!!!

    You are right. GM management should have used its bankruptcy to move to Tennessee, which is why Obama insisted on removing GM’s management. The new Obama-appointed team knows who their boss is: the UAW, not shareholders. But don’t worry, the Chevy is right behind the Twinkie in disappearing beneath the waves of union parasitism. And without any more vehicles coming off the line, who is going to pay for GM  retiree pensions and healthcare? Correct: the “billionaires” making over $200,000 a year.

    So … when you mention “no-one” working together … I assume that you are speaking from experience … and may have added to that experience yourself.

    This is only a small very small amount of what has happened.

    Most can point to liberals and their need to help cities in distress while others extend that political ideology as a overall failure of the country.

    Hate to burst your bubble with reality – all of it has to do with the attitude and the lack of confronting reality from the union auto worker “I deserve” attitude to the racism that has permeated just under the surface in both the city and suburbs. This city can’t be fixed until the city is flat busted broke and the people are ready to riot in the streets because until that happens, the people who actually are part of the problem – the entire political system and the public unions – won’t give up power and their cash cow.

The houses were nice with large front porches and classic American style. Now it is block after block of burned out neighborhood’s even the commercial district.The habitat for humanity houses are stripped out and in the middle of the day people are taking door’s out of them and anything they can. There are no stray animals and even the gangs have left, there is nothing there for them it’s an errie feeling driving thru there.  And city hall the police station and the main fire departmnet were forclosed on and now the police work out of a temporary building in back of a retail center. I can send pictures if you like. And in the middle of all of this is a store with a large oboma sign’s all over it. What dumdasses the majority of Americans have become.

    I’m from Michigan (live in Suburb of Detroit, but NOT Detroit itself.  Hell, no!)  All the negative things you see/hear about Detroit are…. TRUE.  And just about everything can be traced back to a democrat/liberal who was either corrupt or just had a lot of stupid (aka democrat/liberal) ideas, including unions.  Ever see a clip of a Detroit City Council meeting?  OMG – these people are imbeciles, nearly illiterate, inarticulate, unintelligent, and yet pompous and arrogant and overpaid all at the same time!  Look at the former Mayer Kilwame – what a F***ING piece of SH** lardass corrupt SOB.  I know, I know, watch your language, right?  Well, if you educate yourself about this corrupt SOB, you’d realize that those words were made for him!  I will celebrate if that lazy piece of lard gets his fat ass thrown in jail where it belongs.  Corrupt as it gets.  Pathetic.  Want to see how bad it is – look up videos of Highland Park, you’ll swear you’re looking at a third world country, or like this article said “something from a scene after the apocolypse!  You can drive for miles and truly wonder if anyone lives in any of those homes – or play a “game” of how many homes on that block are actually occupied.  

    Ironic, I watch REVOLUTION and everything I see on that show looks nicer than Detroit/Highland Park.  

    Last point – wake up, America, this is a PREVIEW of what the entire country will look like with Obama and the liberals in charge.  This is a real-life example of what democrats can do.  I’m serious.  Detroit has never had a republican in charge of anything.  Look at the results!

    Yeah, hope you’re joking. I assume you are.  GM simply took $80 billion of taxpayers’ money and gave themselves raises – I’m serious – everyone got $10,000 raise last year alone.  And the union dolts are still getting $100,000 to drive a forklift and the execs are still paying themselves 10′s of millions per year for a job a 6-year old could do – seriously, you don’t think a 6-year old is capable of making decisions so stupid that they’d lose the company billions and billions and billions of dollars?  You think it takes someone smart to do that?  Hell, do you realize that it costs $70,000 to build a Chevy Volt and they sell it for $40,000.  Hmm, you call that a business plan to get yourself out of debt?  The top execs at GM should be in prison for incompetence and stealing – because when you take $10 million salary and provide them with moronic leadership and merely bend over and cave to every union demand, no matter how ridiculous and costly it is, then you should be held accountable!!!!

    And don’t believe the BS about GM paying it back.  Total BS.  They owe $40+ billion and what they did pay back, they paid with other govt loans and “credit” lines – they didn’t actually pay back anything, and the stock they gave the govt is worth half what it used to be.  

    Btw, I’ve worked on site at GM headquarters before.  I’ve seen it all firsthand.  Morons.

     You should have seen this town when it was going 24/7. It was a great place, but now, it looks worse than Bagdad. Iraq is not a war, Detroit is a war, Blacks against Whites. It is not the Whites that caused this, racism did this. Black Racism, against Whites. They wanted their own city to run, we let them and look at what they did.

     Back in the seventies Coleman Young the Mayor at the time told the Whites to hit 8 Mile Rd. 8 Mile Rd. is the boundary between the city and the suburbs.

     Well we did, because we were no longer going to be a part of anything that went on in that town, all because of Racism, Blacks wanted no part of anybody that was white, and they still don’t, they think we want to steal what they have. There is nothing left to steal, they already stole everything there was to steal.

    They can live with what they wrought. I say good luck to them and lets stop trowing money down a black hole in which there is no escaping from. Any money spent here is a total and complete waste of taxpayer money.

    I wish that this was not the case, I live in the metro area and I can’t be more distraught or depressed than I am over this Travesty. I fear there is no way out.

    If I remember right, after the Auto Bail-out, GM tried to be somewhat responsible and leave the Renaisance Center Complex where they have their headquarters.  Too expensive and unneccessary in their economic situation.  GM was going to condense down to their facilities in a suburb of Detroit – Warren, MI.  Obama got wind of this and jumped up saying that they could not leave Detroit because the economic impact would be too hard on Detroit.  So GM had to ignore business realities and stay and waste more Bail-out/Tax Dollars to prop up a Liberal Mecca.  Be careful who you “get in bed with” – there is always payback.

Detroit was a prosperous city showing well kept middle class homes. Fast forward to today and Hiroshima is a clean modern city and Detroit looks like the best thing that could happen to it is a bomb.

    Well, I took my daughter and grandkids to St. Louis, Missouri, to see the “Arch”….and it was a Detroit in the making.  I was shocked at all the buildings surrounding the Arch were empty, windows knocked out (gunfire or rocks from inside and out), crumbling.  ALL workers/employees at the Arch were nasty-tempered, nasty-looking blacks.  We could not wait to get out of there and on the road…away from St. Louis.  That was 2005, and none of us have ever gone back there.

    If you go to Detroit, you need to drive into the nearby suburbs to see all the dark windows of the closed companies, the countless tool makers and suppliers who were priced out of business by China, Mexico, and Korea — as a result of year-after-year pressures by the big three to lower prices- – - the pressures caused by union wages and pension benefits, which were added to car costs. Once the jobs began to deteriorate for the inner city folks, along with years of Detroit corruption, going back to Young, the schools and social infrastructure had no place to go but down.  Now they have city services that can’t be paid, a former mayor still on trial after being out of office years, and a city council who can’t do fundamental finance mathematics.

    Detroit is a fine example of not only Democrat/liberal policies and where these policies lead, but more importantly is shows how  uneducated the voters are.  The government has enslaved these citizens and gives them barely enough to substain their lives, and they are caught in the trap that somehow this same government is going to save them. Why would anyone live in this city?  Furthermore it is becoming more difficult to feel sorry for these people that continually vote for these leaders of the city, state, and federal government.

    Elections do have consequences. But how do you tell people who don’t understand, who don’t want to listen and who are full of fear. They are kept in fear and ignorance. It’s just a win win for those that create these conditions to keep them in these deplorable circumstances. They are called democrats/socialists. Socialism has never worked and never will. There is something much more sinister going on.

    The corruption, fraud and waste, in addition to the lack of personal responsibility and just plain laziness have all contributed to the slow deterioration of Detroit and OTHER cities run by Democrats for decades.  But the AUDACITY for them to DEMAND and TAKE from others who play by the rules and do the hefty lifting is absolutely appalling!  We have fostered a generation of degenerates who have preyed on our sympathies!  And now it is time, for their own good, to cut back on the “welfare” and other “bennies” – get them off their butts and do for themselves!  Otherwise we will ALL go down the toilet.

    I was sent to Chicago for Navy boot camp in September of 1972.  After boot camp and before going on to A School, I took a bus to visit Notre Dame in South Bend.  The bus trip went through Detroit.  As the bus approached the bus station in Detroit, I thought that I was in the wild, wild West.  The bus station was isolated and looked like a way station for stagecoach progress across Indian territory.  There were burned out buildings for about a mile in every direction. The station stood out like Ft. Apache the Bronx with flattened buildings surrounding the complex.   I thought that I was on an incoming stagecoach approaching the station and looking over my shoulder to see if wild Indians were on our tail.

    As a former lifelong Toledoan until recently, I’ve personally seen & heard of the Detroit decay.  As sad as it is, we read the handwriting on the wall and split to a red state bec/ the unions are completely destroying Toledo as they did Detroit.  Jobs are fleeing the entire area, the unions are bankrupting both states.  As 2 people who were being held hostage to the effects of the unions, we moved to a right to work state.  Amazing, people actually WANT to work here—I can assure you they DON’T in Ohio/Michigan.  As they would say “It’s a government life!”  Folks back home—get out of the corruption while u can!

    I live in the suburbs west of Detroit.  I am not a big fan of Detroit politics.  Granted, Detroit is extremely decayed.  Believe it or not, there are some nice Detroit neighborhoods and there is some redevelopment occurring.  Glen will have you believe there is nothing good about Detroit.  I can tell you this…It is not liberalism that is the ruination of this city.  It is extreme racism and the practices of former mayors, excluding Mayor Archer.  The current Mayor is trying to clean up 45 years of plight.  So did Mayor Archer.  To the people who say Detroiters are lazy and don’t like to work…Kiss my !!!  My fellow union members and I have been working very hard on some of these projects even during blizzards!  Our unions have fought diligently for over a century to raise the standards of the middle class.  Yes, everybody, even non union people, benefit from a middle class.  I agree, some policies are overstretched, but to trash can unions and generalize everybody in them is a grave mistake.  I would love to see Glen focus on some good aspects of this city and the suburbs.  I actually agree with Mr. Beck on many issues and am a fan.  However, I am insulted by some of the ignorant comments made by other fans pertaining to the population of this region.  The unions fought to instill good retirement standards for people so people could have a good standard of living while in their twilight years. Why do other people find that to be such a crime?  Also, just to set the record straight…I have worked both nonunion and  union.  Union construction projects are safer and the standards are better.  Nobody ever held a gun to my head to join a union.  I simply believed it was the better choice.  Nobody ever told me I could not leave the union.  This is not a gangster “blood in blood out” mentality.  We already have choices to join or not join a union.  Unfortunately, “Right to Work” legislature will minimize anybody’s right to join a union.  By not being able to join a union…your individual freedom is being stolen from you with the stroke of a pen.  I have worked very hard my entire life. I have a college degree from The University of Michigan.  I am a Journeyman Electrician. I have a CDL-A truck driving license.  I also own a small business while working for union contractors.  These are all my  choices and freedoms. Nobody ever told me I was not permitted to do these things.
    Do I sound lazy and stupid?  I can point in any direction and find people just like myself. It is easy to cast cowardice insults from your desk when you know you are not within arms reach of any debate.

    I know, somebody’s going to call me a racist for saying what I’m going to say, but he it is anyway.  If you look at the photos, and see the majority are Blacks, I think it’s logical to assume that Blacks made up the majority race in those failed areas.  Yes, Blacks had it bad for many decades, but from what I’ve seen demonstrated by Blacks over the years, in general, they are mostly inferrior in intellect and culture compared to other races.  Proof are the free or low rent apartment buildings that were intentionally run down by stupid Blacks, stupid Black drug dealers, and gang members killing each other and always blaming somebody else?  The whites are almost always blamed for the predicament that Blacks find themselves in, but the Blacks themselves are mostly to blame for being so stupid.  Modern American society was developed from the original  Europeans who populated this Continent.  It wasn’t developed by African natives who were forceably brought here.  If that were the case, we’d all be living in mud huts.  In order to succeed, the Blacks have to adopt the White culture.  Pulling the race card or the Political Correctness demand isn’t going to cut it.  Learn to speak proper English.  Learn how to dress in a civil manner.  Get an education. Get that chip off your shoulder.  Of course this also applies to stupid Whites who think that acting, talking, and dressing like Blacks is the “cool” thing to do. They’re all idiots who have no one to blame for their failures but themselves.

    Like your comments no name,  I can also name you more honest hard working union members who worked all their lives and paid into their benefits packages with the hope of a good retirement. I think a lot of union elites have taken advantage of the workers and misused their funds and now have to cover their a$$es. Union workers will take the brunt of mismanagement, just like all union and  non union workers will take the brunt of government mismanagement of our money.
    I would like to see the nice places in Detroit as a counter to these horrible pictures presented by Beck, two sides to every story, right. We could go to any town or city and take both kinds of pictures IMO, you’ll find what you’re looking for.

    You don’t know what you’re talking about. Right to work doesn’t mean you’re “not able to join a union”. If there’s a union you can join it. It means the end of CLOSED SHOP where employees are forced to pay the dues even if they don’t want to join. Since you don’t understand the basic concepts there’s nothing more to say about your lengthy post. My guess is you KNOW what it means and you see the people will chose NO UNION and THAT’s why you said “won’t be able to join” cuz there won’t be any unions welcome by the CITIZENS.

    It’s not JUST the typical “blue-collar union” worker that is the problem.  I’ve worked with union types before.  They were pressuring me to slow down so I didn’t make them look bad, etc.  What!?  But they were not so APPARENTLY different from me, usually – except almost all vote Dem / Left.  hmm.  Real patriotic Americans – NOT.  That’s a lie in my book!  They are selfish and very protectionist.
    It’s many things.  Fat-cat union bosses living very well off their backs, squeezing dues out of them, consistently backing more and more Dem / Left policies and politicians, just perpetuating the same “you owe me” and “ohh, the EVIL Repubs / Managers / capitalists / investors, etc., they don’t care about us.”  Solidarity!  We must stick it to the Man.  Please.  Most people would NEVER become a slave to a union.  But Obama loves ‘em.  So does the American Communist Party that has backed him both times.  Tells you a little something about union “Americanism”, right?We now have to pay $20K and more just for a basic vehicle because of all the expenses of unions, government regulations, ETC.!  Ridiculous.  They still break down, the paint fails, there are recalls, more and more plastic and cheap foreign-made parts, etc.  Nothing special about a union-made product – just ‘way more expensive.  Lots more overhead.As far as I know, most of these union factory jobs are semi-mindless repetitive assembly line jobs.  I’ve had them, too.  These types of jobs don’t warrant big salaries and all the extras.  They ought to be semi-considered entry-level jobs.  Almost anyone can learn to do them.  (But who wants to do that for 20+ years?)  Yet they want maximum income and benefits, with “early” retirement and keep those benefits coming until death, sometimes 30 years later.  And look out if you disagree!  Meanwhile, they can start another career and it’s just a sweet deal.So by out-negotiating Management over time with the threat of walkouts or slow-downs, etc., it just gets worse and worse and unsustainable.  But they don’t care as long as they get theirs.  Someone else can pay the price of reality.  Just pass the buck.  That’s union pride!  Recently, the buck stops with the American people and the theft of their tax dollars, 401K funds, etc. in these immoral bailouts and subsidies.  And political payback to the unions once elected.  Well, Chicago – style is the standard now – except Repubs are NOT allowed to do it.  Ever.Remember – it’s not the government’s money!  They have no business deciding who to dump money on.  And they are not success- or business-oriented anyway, so they are ignorant of the best investments anyway.  “Investment” to them just means more taxes, just like “working families” only means union jobs, and “pay your fair share” means take all the excess from anyone who earned it and has more than you via basically forced redistribution, Marx-style”.  Glorified theft from your neighbor.  How nice…VERY American and “patriotic”.And those of us who disagree have little to say about it.  They are narrow-minded Socialists with an aggressive agenda:  more and more government growth, control, and spending.  Period.  They SUCK (like vampires), are spreading their “gospel” (like a cancer) and are bent on “fundamentally changing (destroying) America.  They are clearly stupid OR evil.  You decide.

    I grew up in Detroit. It truely was a wonderful place to be a kid, as long as you were born at least a decade before 1967. After that year the nosedive really began. LBJ’s Great Society had Detroit to be one of it’s Model Cities. Forced social engineering did us in. Glenn, if you do make a day visit to Detroit, be sure to compare it to the connecting suburbs of Grosse Pointe Park, Grosse Pointe City and Grosse Pointe Woods. The contrasts are vivid and nothing less than mindblowing.

    I live outside the city of Detroit. We go “exploring” there quite often.  It is as bad as Glenn’s making it look. So sad for the families who try to keep their property up and live a good, clean life. Fascinating architecture that’s been scrapped and/ or destroyed. Some buildings closed for just days and scrappers go in and strip it. No chance of salvaging a perfectly good building after that happens. There is “life” down there. Downtown by the river it’s beautiful. Theatres, Wayne State Univ., Ren Cen, DIA, etc.  Not for long, though. Once the scrappers and arsonists are done with the outskirts, they will move downtown.  They don’t care.

    Why didn’t the Republicans show these pictures of ” MOTOR CITY” on a TV commercial
    with the theme ” THIS IS WHAT OBAMA CALLS SUCCESS” ? Why didn’t they show the
    many video clips available of Obama caught in his many lies? I believe they backed down
    because of fear of being called racist!

    The neighborhoods are far, far worse than pictures show.  We left Detroit for the suburbs in 1969 when I was a junior in high school, mainly because dad didn’t want to pay for Catholic schools anymore and the public schools were becoming downright dangerous in our area.  We left a nice, mostly white neighborhood of brick homes and tree-lined streets but within the next few years that followed all the trees died due to a disease that ran through the city…but no one ever replanted trees, so the streets are now stark.  I drove down our old street for the first time in years a couple of years ago and when I turned the corner I literally gasped…I couldn’t believe my eyes.  Overgrown lots took the place of lovely homes that were once there, abandoned homes, trashed cars…it was so sad, but it also made me angry that no one has done anything to teach these inhabitants to take care of their neighborhood. This is what years of Democrat leadership has given us.

    In about 1988, the company I worked for was asked to create a proposal for a major Ford factory lights-out factory in Rawsonville, Michigan to manufacture small electric motors for automobiles (heaters, windshield wipers, fuel pumps, etc.). Ford was planning to budget about $400million for this factory that would receive raw materials on a pallet at a receiving dock and ship finished products on pallets on a shipping dock, all without human intervention. When touring that plant, I was appalled to see people shoulder-to-shoulder sitting on high stools facing a slow conveyor where they inserted one screw, or tightened one nut or installed one component, hour after hour doing the same thing. I wrote the technical proposal to accomplish this automation. We were told that if Ford built this facility, all the workers we saw would be gone and Ford would be selling electric motors to GM and American Motors plus anyone else who wanted inexpensive motors. Either the plant would be built or Ford would move the entire facility off-shore. We did not get the contract for that project nor did anyone else.

    Are these the brain-numb workers that are now out of work in Michigan? The people with no future? The people without the desire to educate themselves to improve their situation? The people who are now rioting for the government to pay them to not work?

    The large majority of Detroit has a entitlement mentality, there priority’s are fancy gaudy cars with idiotic rims that cost thousands of dollars, ugly ghetto fabulous clothes and partying and they expect somebody else to pay the bills, thats why they elect democrats to run the government with the promise of paying for everything with other peoples money. And the reason industry left is because most of the people also have little or no work ethic and you cant run a factory with so many people doing no or poor quality work.

    I’m from the suburbs of Detroit, but I’m forced to drive through the city occasionally. I can’t forget the image of people sitting in lawn chairs as I peered through the gutted out ruins of what used to be quaint businesses, once a beautiful industrious city, now just depressing. I have to make frequent trips to the Henry Ford hospital. My dad tells me what the surrounding area “used” to look like, the stately brick homes now left for dead, burnt out, boarded up, or just plain ass neglected. This past election cycle, Obama signs littered the yards of the remaining habitable homes, this only fed my disgust for this so called president and all those who can possibly continue to buy into to the nanny state mentality. I think it’s too far gone. The inhabitants of this city have become completely incapacitated by the government and those who want better, are severely out numbered. The free stuff is just too easy, and the techniques to obtain the government grab bag is passed down from generation to generation. However, I do give Mayor Bing a lot of credit, he’s one of the few mayors in a long time who’s at least attempting to make the necessary cuts, despite overwhelming opposition. Most of those living in Detroit don’t have a clue what’s good for them, they’re still begging for their Obama bucks. That city is overrun by corrupt unions and politicians, and they maintain their reign by placating the people while robbing them of their freedom.

    To those who liked my comment…Thanks.  To those who think I don’t understand the basics of Right to Work, I have news for you.  There are such business entities already that are considered “double breasted”.  It has been like that for years.  This means that one company basically owns two entities.  One is union and one is not.  I suppose an individual has a choice to be in either half of the company.  Ultimately, a person has always had a choice to work for a company that is union or not.  Of course, unions will not go away.  Some people will still join them and some will not. I still  believe there are advantages.  Yes, I also believe some things need to be cleaned up.  However,  If you think unions should just disapear, then you must truly believe whatever wonderful corporation you work for will allways appreciate your efforts and reward you and treat you well for the next century.  You must truly believe that people never suffered  or worked in tough, unsafe conditions.   The bleak news is, those conditions still exist in our country.  Unless people remain watch dogs within their work environments and demand fair wages and conditions they will not have a say in how the company treats them. Do you want to work for a Chinese manufacturer in the USA?  Maybe the foreign automakers within our country treat their workers fairly because they are afraid of unionization.  Odly enough, it seems foriegn cars are just as expensive as American cars in some way shape or form.  I prefer to  buy American made products because I believe it keeps my fellow Americans employed.  I prefer to purchase foods that are grown and packed in the USA because it keeps my fellow Americans employed.  I am proud to be a union member because I know that my fellow workers and I produce good work. Don’t lump us all together because some people are lazy.  I have seen plenty of lazy workers where there is no union protection.  The harsh truth is…This country is The United States of America.  We are a democracy built on checks and balances.  People have said ” The South shall rise again.”  It looks like it did.  Some of the Northern cities that are portrayed as ruins were also once considered meccas for the steel industry.  I suppose, when the steel industries decided to sell out to foreign entities or decided to open shop in some other country that was within their rights.  I suppose you think the people who fought and died for their rights in unsafe conditions were idiots.  The rest of the harsh truth is…unless you are already a millionare who has the worlds pleasures at your finger tips, then you are probably just an ordinary person who wishes they had something better.  In any case…protect your pension, protect your insurance, ask for a raise once in a while.  People who ridicule somebody for the sort of job they have truly believe they are superior.  Ironically, we all seem to want better jobs.

    I worked for GM in Flint, MI and when you speak of entitlement mentality I know exactly what you mean. There were 3rd generation workers who thought GM OWED them a living. The caustic atmosphere between the union and management was horrific. Flint, Detroit, Pontiac Warren, just a few of the waste land cities that thought the gravy train would continue on.  I believe in a fair wage for a days work, but I have seen my share of union thuggery and management stupidity.  Then someone had the brainstorm to let the prisioners run the assylum  (Saturn) what should of been a hundred year company turned into ruin in less than 20 years. There are leaders, there are workers, there are takers. There needs to be an awakening in this country.  Corporate greed and union hostility needs to be replaced with mutual respect and shared responsibility.

    When I first got out of the Army ( I was Military police) a friend of mine became law enforcement in Washington DC. I rode with him one day and he showed me something that shocked me. Two high rise, low income, (mostly black with some whites) apartment buildings had just been opened for occupation less then three months before. They were brand new. We went into the building and he showed me one of the elevators. It had urine and human poop all over the floor which made it impossible to not step in some of it. The filth was appalling. I could barely believe my eyes. I had never seen such disrespect for property in my life. That however, is where we are going folks unless we stop the free rides.

    During Romney’s campaign he said many times he was going to put America back to work. I’ve got news for many in these United States of America. Those who are now on the freebies lists don’t want to work and better themselves. We have been killing them, so to speak, with kindness. Now it their turn to do the same to us. You see there is now close enough to 51% so that they can rule with the help of the idiots who put party over country. Unless something is done we are done as a nation. Detroit is just a preview of our national future. Sadly we have earned it with our apathy and impotence.

    It is not correct to say all blacks are inferior there are some like Allen West and Charles Payne who are very good people. And there are many more. It is also not correct to say all whites are not just as big a freeloader, they are. It seems however, a majority of blacks and a small minority of whites that fit into that category. It could be said 100% of both voted for Obama. None the less they are now in control and will stay there unless we figure out a way to cut back on these welfare programs. I do not mean earned benefits like social security, VA benefits and medicare they are earned and paid for benefits. I mean the unearned conned benefits

    The History Channel series Life Without People had an episode recently that featured Detroit. The interesting thing about it was that there are large portions of the city that have been unattended by people for decades, and they are a perfect depiction of what will happen to our cities in the future. The school in these pictures was only abandoned two years ago. If you want to see the decay at it’s worst, take a look at the old Packard factory. It’s been abandoned since the 1960′s and there are almost no windows left, the wooden flooring is all but rotted away, parts of the structure are collapsing because of the elements and the weight of the structure. That is just one abandoned industrial facility in a city that has dozens. Then there are the neighborhoods that housed the people that worked in those abandoned factories – many are urban ghost towns. 

    This is America when Obama gets done with it.

  • BentGhazi

    I suppose if you ignore the facts on the ground your comments make sense. The unions have had their way with industry and they are responsible for many of the woes of today. The federal government has put regulations in place that have replaced the unions as far as protecting workers from unsafe working conditions, work week and other union claims to fame, which is why the unions are becoming irrelevant. 

    Unions now support the takers, and they reward bad behavior with un-fireable jobs – people who companies can’t get rid of no matter how bad their job performance is. The workers know this, and that is why these thugs cling to their unions. 

    Detroit and many other decaying cities that supported American industry are the proof of how unions are bad for America, bad for the economy, and bad for the people. They have degenerated into political muscle for corrupt politicians and the unions and politicians are locked in a dance that ignores the fact that the country is falling down around them. 

    The reason there is so much noise about Michigan’s new Right to Work law which goes into effect this week is this  - the unions are in their death throes. The people of the state voted for Right to Work, the legislature wrote the law, and the Governor will sign it today. Then, the union’s will have to assume their new role as irrelevant dinosaurs. 

    There is a reason that the most successful states in the country are successful in an economic sense – they are all Right to Work states. The reason for this is clear – the unions and their stranglehold on industry and government caused most of the decline in our economic fortunes. 

    The people of Michigan have spoken.

    One concept comes back to me time and again as I become more aware. And this concept boggles my mind.  The evidence is all around us. It is in our history and it’s in our face. Detroit, all of California, the last 4 years of Presidency…just to name a few.  Liberalism, the left, it simply does not work. Lofty ideals, perhaps. But financial ruin and decay. And the right is just as obvious, if you look for it.  It has worked, it is right there in our faces. It will work. So, what will it take? If you lead a horse to water, and he does not drink, there is only one conclusion to be had.  The horse is a leftist. The (D) and the (R) no longer exemplify the centerline.  Just because a person places the (R) at the end of their name no longer places them to the right of that line. We need true, unadulterated conservatism, founding principles and some fairly tough times to break away from beneath the mountain of political rubble WE have allowed (yes, we put them there…we own it) them to bury us under. I just hope there’s still time left after Obama and his ilk have another 4 years.  Unless we can take back Congress in ’14.  I hope and pray we can.

    I am from Germany, but I visit the US quite frequently. Two years ago, I took a wrong turn in Philadelphia, and I thought I had ended up on the set for the sequel to ‘Escape from New York’, for those who remember the movie. It is just really hard to believe what some US cities have turned into. And it is very sad at the same time. But the same thing is happening over here. I currently live in The Netherlands, yes, home of Geert Wilders. I moved here many years ago, and I witnessed the beautiful old inner cities pretty much turn into garbage belts, due to, and that is something you are not allowed to say, a massive influx of mainly immigrants from Muslim countries such as Morocco. If you ever happen to go to these countries, bring a good supply of antibiotics, because the words filth and decay do get a new meaning over there. I am not kidding. I don’t want these people here, they have nothing, and I mean absolutely nothing, in common with our culture. Most are on welfare, and the crime rate among these people is just stunning. The liberals let them all in. Most leaders do not even dare to speak out against them anymore, for fear of riots. The UK has been pretty much overrun already. I recently visited Paris, one of my favorite cities, the Northern part is now almost a no go zone, no tourists go there, it looks and feels like Baghdad. The population is almost exclusively made up of immigrants from Africa and the Middle East. After many years of trying to be tolerant towards these people, I have now really had it. They come from the dirt and filth, they will never improve, and they will always feel entitled to all kinds of free stuff, an attitude which liberal governments are more than willing to cater to.

    There was no vote from the people regarding Right to Work.  That was the doing of a bunch of overzealous right wing law makers.  Gov.  Snyder had said he would not sign the bill.  However, recently he changed his tune.  I wonder how much money he was secretely offered to do this.  Is there such a thing as right wing thugs?  As far as the government protecting your rights on the job…they don’t give a rip unless you do.  Those government agencies were created with the help of unions .  Extreme right wingers don’t believe in spending money on that sort of thing. Trust me, I know about some of the corruption involved with unions.  I don’t put on rose colored glasses.  However, don’t think for a moment  Super Romney would have deep concern for your individual stake in any matter.  He cares about big money and creating cheap jobs maybe here and probably over seas where his pals can receive big tax shelter.  Is that ok with you?  Good news for you…At this rate, within the next century we can probably all look forward to sweat shop conditions again.  I suppose you would be supprised to know there are actually work environments in this country that are pretty bad.  Is that ok with you?

    Small  as far as I’m concerned right to work states work fine because if the pay and the benefits are low then you get low people to work.  If the benefits are high you get better people.  The dirty little secret is Obama and his U.N. buddies want a 30% to 50 % pay cut for american workers anyway, because the 1% is ALL of america and the 99% is the rest of the world.  Obama really could care less about unions sice he won his second term. He is so much like Hitler its scarey.  Be the populace prez.  Take the peoples side the spend them into oblivion and keep making speeches until the whole thing crashes down.  Better buy some extra food while you can afford it.

    Drugs, despair, dependency, delusion, disengagement which characterize a culture of people unable and unwilling to manage their own lives outside of paranoia and pity, the result is cities like the “concentration camp” of Detroit. A city can not be preserved, enhanced, or cherished if its people insist on “shitting where they eat” while demanding “money and drugs”. Abandonment with the resultant “death spiral” is the only option for those who would be overwhelmed by the savages, the ignorance, and the rapacious violence of politicians and thugs.

    No one will start a business in a city that does not take care of its properties, or enforce compliance like other major cites.  In about 20 years when it is completely demolished, would the last person to leave please close the door.  Then they will go and demolish another great city.

    Detroit wasn’t destroyed overnight and it’s going to take years to rebuild.  It’s really sick that their voters keep voting for Dems, but that’s who lives there because most people left along time ago.  At the beginning of the new year, the City will probably go bankrupt which will be another black eye for our State.   Still, I’m really sick and tired of outsiders taking pictures of destroyed buildings and vacant lots and acting like that’s all Detroit is.   The City has spent a lot of time and money building up areas like Midtown/Techtown/the Riverfront.   However, you’d never know it if all you saw were pictures like the ones above.   That’s just not the whole story.

    What do you see in these photos. Black people. When you give people stuff they did not earn then they do not take pride in it because they have no stake in it. It was given to them. A freebie. A handout. You can not take the black out of black. Look at the goofy black congreesmen and women in Washingotn and listen to how they speak. It is something other than English and they sound very stupid and hateful when they speak and also everyone owes them something.

    It seems obvious to me that Liberal politics in big cities have failed miserably and is cheating the average tax payer in these locals.  We’ve had Liberal Democrats in power here for about 45 or so years and our city, to a great extent, has become a cesspool.  We continually petition DC for funding essential programs but it always seems there is NEVER enough money or concerned politicians to put that money to good use.  BUT, we keep electing these fat cats to office each election period only to see the city become more like the aftermath of WWII Europe.  No one cares anymore about improving things except increasing all the special people’s paychecks.

    The real issue here is flight from liberal takeover. The logical capitalistic coservatives have moved from places like detroit to places like Texas (I’m one of them). What that eans is we now have an area where the vot is ALWAYS going to be conservative- for instance in Texas, our votes don’t even count- and areas tht are going to always vote liberal. Unfortunately, these areas are the most populous, and therefore sqwamp the results of all elections. What this means is that eventually, the migration will be complete, and there will be poor (liberal) and rich (conservative) areas in the US. The poor areas will take from the rich via the vote, and congressional appointees.

    How long did you think, America, that those behaviors would go unanswered? Basically, they are just flipping the tables. Is it right?  No!!! When Godlessness strangles a nation it affects those who have AND those who have not! The socialist progressives obviously use this to their political advantage. We who call ourselves conservatives and capitalists abandoned that which is required for peace. LOVE!!!!!!!!!  It is never too late though! All things are possible with God!

    Crooked CROOKS,  that is the reality of the Liberal Party. Never ending promises made to the masses of easy living, primarily due to the fact that you were born in the wealthiest nation that has ever existed in the history of mankind – nothing more. For some unknown reason, growing numbers of Americans have been led to believe that hard work and genuine effort, is an outdated idea from generations gone by. But the proof of that thinking tells us another story, it breeds laziness, which leads to squalor and degenerate behavior, having an end result of a dependent population upon government, who by the way, have become nothing more than the new slave-master. “You will vote Liberal, or you will-not eat”…that open threat produces a real fear which keeps the crafty politicians in perpetual power, such as the case in Detroit Michigan.

    Today, there’s even a new word that has been formed and added to the urban dictionary: DETROITIFICATION – it can be found alongside or lumped into the same category as other classic words, for instance…Desertification  – Demystification – Declassification etc…all having the same retaliative meaning as that of – a fraction of its former-self, decay, end or dying.

    Government has walked to the dictates of their Union Masters for far too long – Today, Unions are the real power behind American political policy. They have become an entity outside the confines of American Federal Law, or at least, the powers that be, will more often than not, turn a blind eye to the notorious thug-like behavior of these Unions, who have become nothing more than legal organized-crime outfits.

    Greed from the top-down is not an invention of modern-day American politics. It is the result of Big-Unions walking in tandem with Big-Government. Both entities routinely point the finger of blame on that of Big-Business, when nothing could be further from the truth. These agreed political circumstances have been here on planet earth for a long time. History shows, that those governments who have gone this route, have utterly failed…history also shows – by ignoring the lessons of the past, the same destructive pattern will be repeated at sometime down the road.

    America has been fully-confronted by her crossroads. It is time we as a people seriously think this political formula through, before we are destroyed by the Detroitification of America.

    I’ve lived in the Detroit area all my life…  this city is in decay mostly because of the criminals.. not liberals, not conservatives, not socialists…THUGS>>>GET IT?    The former mayor will probably spend the rest of his adult life behind bars.. look it up, Kwame Kilpatrick, and his dad and all his friends. Let’s not forget Monica Conyers, convicted felon, the wife of John Conyers, Federal House of Reps., all crooked. Now the Library is being investigated.  The schools, of which your pictures are being and taken and referred to, is a bigger disgrace.  There were many folks hauled out by handcuffs by the FBI.  If there is ever an example of what happens when you give politicians and unions the ability to do whatever they want:  then look at Detroit. Today is a monumental day in Michigan, the state is trying to cut the power of the unions and the protests are huge. Some schools are closed because the teachers are in Lansing protesting.  I read the blogs.. most of you miss the point with your finger pointing at libs and conservatives and commies !!  This is way bigger..  We are talking about convicted criminals, and more on the way.

    Yes Jalina.  I have heard similar reports and I am very worried and praying for our hierarchy constantly. In his inaugural Mass homily Pope Benedict XVI said “pray for me that I do not flee for fear of the wolves”, he is very aware of the enemies from within the Church! Just as Vatican II was misconstrued for 50 years, I would verify any quotes before jumping to conclusions.

    These pictures are the direct result of the gimme, gimme, gimme generation… instead of maintaining buildings all they only want new stuff… like the welfare queens in new orleans that wouldn’t leave town on school buses, NO, they demanded air conditioned charter buses or they would ride it out in the (clean) staduim until the government came and GAVE them new housing or would put them up in high end hotels… its the politicians fault for BUYING votes with projects that the politician can put his name on, etc etc…

    Detroit is just a symptom of the lazy never ending voting to take other people’s money away from them (at the point of a gun or prison… which ever the government thinks they can get away with).

    JUST IMAGINE IF THE LAW SAID ONLY BLACK PEOPLE HAVE TO PAY TAX… THEY WOULD BE SCREAMING BLOODY MURDER… SO WHY IS IT OKAY TO REQUIRE ANY MINORITY (THE TOP 2%) TO PAY A HIGHER TAX RATE???  IF WE ALL PAY 10% THE TOP 2% WILL STILL BE PAYING WAY MORE THAN ANY OF THE CRACK WHORES AND WELFARE QUEENS… WHEN WILL THEY EVER STOP SUCKLING AT THE GOVERNMENT TEAT???

    …If you don’t have a high school education, it sucks to be you… you did that to yourself… you should not have a free ride because you are stupid (insert minority here… white men are a minority too as they are only 35% of the population… that makes white women the problem as they keep voting stupidly to coddle those who have choosen to be idiots).

    Glenn. Don’t be surprised! This is not the only city that looks like this. What I am about to say may sound racist–it is fact not opinion. Where ever you have white flight and a majority of Black residents you have ghettos, projects, low income slums,high crime, drugs, killings and murder, drive by shootings,etc.  The education systems in these cities is brankrupt and most students don’t graduate. The ones that do graduate haven’t recieved an education ,but were given social promotions and can barely read and write.  The majority of crimes are black on black. Unwed welfare mothers are the norm. Blacks coming from these cities are usually in a gang and have been arrested numerous times. The Democrats answer is pouring more money into these cities,spending more money in education, raise the min wage, provide more government programs to help—they have done this for 50 years and the results are always  the same. Nothing changes! Where ever you have a Democratic major or a liberal,progressive Republican you have corruption, kickbacks, criminal indictments for fraud, numerous family members of elected officals employed by the local government, the list goes on and on. Many Blacks and Hispanics who live in these communities have grown accustomed to the violence, the poverty, a way of life that leads to prison,jail, and often death. The grow up generation after generation believing the Democratic lie that  more and more government is the only answer to their problems.From the cradel to the grave. They become addicted to the “Free Stuff” and rather than work at a job they consider demeaning and useless would rather supplement their government welfare with stealing, and selling drugs. Since aprox 50% of the population are  recieving government money in one form or another the prevaling attitude in these cities is “Give me more”. From the North to the South–the East to the West more and more cities are defaulting,going broke, bankrupt  and falling apart. You will see more cities like Detroit,New Orleans, Los Angles, etc. As long as these people believe the lie and continue to want to get “something for nothing” or that it is their right, their birth right as an American to recieve the money, the government housing, the food stamps,etc the virus will continue to grow and cities will continue to die. “What you sow –you reap!” “The chickens are coming home to roost” and the bill has to be paid. This not just a Black or Hispanic problem it is an American problem created by politicans.

    Just an opinion, but regarding the upcoming fiscal cliff. I believe Obama has demonstrated he is a radical leftist extremist, and as such, his real intent is to tax everyone, especially the middle class who are the real foundation of our democracy. Obama couldn’t care less about the rich, and in fact , has been using this as a red herring from the beginning. Once the Republicans let us go ‘over the fiscal cliff’ , Obama will get the results he really wants, and begin taxing the hell out of the middle class, while getting public opinion to blame all Conservatives. He is crafty isn’t he, but then, so was Joseph Stalin.

    Not only is it liberal DEM-wits that caused this, but it takes a particular mentality of the populace, believing that the world owes them something while they lay around and collect a check (This is the definition of a “sluggard”). Crooked Politicians USE this trick and PROMOTE it to stay in office because they are really too stupid to achieve office in a credible manner. This is true socialism and how it is manipulated. The cause and effect of this have been well known for a long time. This knowledge is suppressed by those who use it as a vehicle to in-debt and enslave the ignorant masses, always telling them that they deserve it and that all need be a level playing field. This sounds real good to all the sluggards. Greece, Spain, Italy, France , etc. are results of these type of politicians. Only through gradual totalitarian laws do these Governments maintain their oppression and power over the people, until the people realize what squalor they have been led to, and that they have been robbed.
    THIS is WHY Detroit is what it is today. Nothing ever CHANGES when you use socialism as your means to stay in office. You destroy those who you say you are helping. Therefore you are a LIAR, only concerned with your own self.

    A bunch of twinkies!!! I almost lost my coffee on that one!

    The unions are dying an ugly death, they priced themselves out of the market. All the questionable good they did was seventy years ago, and they made it where every entity that had union employees became non-competitive. They put many businesses out of business by demanding money that the business revenues could not support, and they doubled down on the ignorance of their selfishness. They don’t understand the company has to make a profit to stay in business, and they compound that by supporting non-productive, non-performing employees by making it difficult if not impossible to terminate them. The resulting non functioning, tumor like load on the business eventually causes the business to fail, the company closes and puts all the employees out of work. This is what we are seeing nation wide. Unions are as much to blame for the failed economy as mismanagement in both the boardroom and in the halls of government.

    I’m just a regular guy and I figured this out – why can’t our leaders understand this? It’s not that hard to see, but the astounding level of ignorance on the part of our political leaders just makes you wonder if these people have even average intelligence.

    The unions chased the jobs away, the corrupt black politicians looted the taxes, black crime run rampant, black voters kept voting only for black politicians, more and more people wanted free stuff from the Fed’s.  This is what Obama will do to the whole country with the help of the fools that vote for eating the rich.

    I live in Michigan! Today finally we had a governor who finally did something for Michigan! Finally, breaking the corrupt unions hold! Our state has been going down for the last 30 years! My father who was in the first sit-down strike in Flint, saw this coming when Jimmy Hoffa was voted in, he no longer voted. He shared with me years later that unions had become so corrupt! There was a time for every turn or change, but Michiganders hang onto their party and unions like old worn out blankets! Problem, to many RETIRED union workers here. I will help you with the mind set, they vote then go on their merry way, they once again bury their heads in the sand, they don’t even know what is going on politically, years and years of self brainwashing! You can see this in Flint City, and in Saginaw as well! The workers and cities never diversified! We have lost a large percent of our population because of job loss in our state..it is called GREED!

    The parasites eventually kill the host. When the host dies, so do the parasites, unless they can find another host.

    If union bosses and members were rational and had a modicum of intelligence, they would realize that it works best if business and labor have a symbiotic relationship. But the union bosses got greedy for $$$$ and power, so they groom their members to carry the torch they light, even though the members may not be supporters of the bosses views/plans.

    After concessions to unions, the businesses have no choice but to increase prices, which often make them uncompetitive so they fold. This only requires a firm grasp of the obvious, no degree in Micro & Macro Economics is needed. But many survive. The increased prices then cause the buying power of everyone’s dollars to shrink. Now other business find they have to increase wages. The government gets involved by increasing the minimum wage. There is always a domino effect so we are always chasing the dollar. Next thing you know the unions are demanding again, and so it goes. What did a loaf of bread cost 50 years ago compared to now? Teachers salaries? Postage stamps? Gasoline? Greed and expectations.

    Re the state of Detroit…..This is what happens when the Democrats are allowed to run everything, AND you manage to have a majority black population, so  an all democrat population, mostly all blacks, results in  a city like Detroit ,,,,the whites move out, the blacks don’t have a clue as to how to cherish and protect a vibrant city….all they know to do is tear up things, and create utter destruction where they LIVE because the house isn;t owned by them, nothing is owned by them, so they react like children and tear up what they have,,,,,,,waiting on “massa” to come rescue them.
    This “new Detroit reflects what the democrat party would like to do to the entire United States…..hey, they got Michigan on it’s back, gasping for breath,,,,,and as far as I am concerned, the dems have messed it, now let them mop it up…what a disaster the blacks can create when there are no white people around. to run things, and take care of them……..

    I know the “creed ” of the blacks is to stick together and not criticize another “brother”…..but they sure do need to call on brother obama and get some lessons in how to clean up the streets, the neighborhoods, and clean out the “hoods”….course he doens’t know either…..so maybe he can send Romney in to plow that neighborhood down, then ship all the brothers to obama in Washingtom….I’m sure he’ll welcome them all to the White House, feed them dinner and offer them a bed to stay overnight…..maybe when H E. double L freezes over…..

    Soon, if California voters will keep putting those big taxpayers money spending liberals in the legislature and in the governor’s mansion, California will become Detroit II.  Maybe the only  reason California may avoid Detroit II fate is the hardworking Asians.  But there are a lot of Asians who love to remain in California – not for the beautiful climate, and neither for its non-snow winter.  What is it?  California is the only State that doles out the hardworking Californians taxes to those “welfare recipients – SSI they call it”,  at higher rate than any other States in the Union.  Oh yeah, they love California and they really do – for the higher SSI.

    How are your statements and mindset different from the one you’re attacking? They’re no different – just the reverse. A true racist doesn’t think of people as individuals like our Constitution does. He/she only sees a person as part of a group that shares superficial physical characteristics. Racism from all sides will continue until we stop thinking in terms of racial groups and begin thinking in terms of individual liberty. Most importantly, two wrongs do NOT make a right – ever.

    As I mentioned in my comment above, your ideas are no different than “theirs.” You have as much hatred and anger in your heart as you accuse “them” of having. I am completely against this administration, but your comment that “they hate everything white because it reminds them of how inferior they are” merely demonstrates that, deep down, you really do think you are superior. I believe God is allowing everything in our country to happen so that the deep, hidden, ugly sentiments in everyone’s hearts can come out and be dealt with – once and for all. Hatred will never conquer hatred and God will never honor anything driven by it.

    Hatred in reverse will never work. I’m reading a lot of hatred from those who are accusing others of hating. God will never honor this.

    It’s an unbelievable shame that uneducated people get to vote at all. The DPS reinforces liberal ideas, based on socialism and Communism, and the children believe all that crap because most of their parents were educated in the same school system. I lived on the East Side, near Gratiot and Houston-Whittier, where when I was a kid in the early 1970′s I could walk up to Mayfield Market on a summer night with my dad to buy a popsicle. Now, I’m terrified to even drive down Gratiot in the daylight, for fear of being carjacked or shot by an stray bullet. My kids see the pictures of Detroit today, and stare in disbelief that anyone lived there at all. My son said it looks like a Chernobyl aftermath. But the uneducated population, who would rather have a stand-your-ground mentality, would rather live here than be enlightened by the smarter few because they have been taught no reasoning skills by their parents or their teachers. Better to take over the neighborhoods through eminent domain and move these people to places (to be determined) with the mandate that they take continuing education classes about self-responsibility and peace, NOT TAUGHT BY PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHERS. We have to bring them into the 21st century. I’d say more, but I have a job to go to which mandates me to pay for  these people to have health care.

I lived on the East Side, near Gratiot and Houston-Whittier, where when I was a kid in the early 1970′s I could walk up to Mayfield Market on a summer night with my dad to buy a popsicle. Now, I’m terrified to even drive down Gratiot in the daylight, for fear of being carjacked or shot by an stray bullet. My kids see the pictures of Detroit today, and stare in disbelief that anyone lived there at all. My son said it looks like a Chernobyl aftermath. But the uneducated population, who would rather have a stand-your-ground mentality, would rather live here than be enlightened by the smarter few because they have been taught no reasoning skills by their parents or their teachers. Better to take over the neighborhoods through eminent domain and move these people to places (to be determined) with the mandate that they take continuing education classes about self-responsibility and peace, NOT TAUGHT BY PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHERS. We have to bring them into the 21st century. I’d say more, but I have a job to go to which mandates me to pay for  these people to have health care.

    Niceguy: If you’ve allowed yourself to hate others and judge people you’ve never even met because of Obama, then you are a very weak person. You control your own sentiments, not others.

    Pretty sad isn’t it when people get handouts from the government and don’t notice that their surroundings are totally deteriorating.  More violence in Michigan even tearing down tents with people and children in them, and assaulting people who speak up for true rights and freedom..The right to choose whether or not to belong to unions, and what party you want to contribute you money to. The unions are not operating on values that we pay for anymore..Sad but true.

    As a retired pilot I saw Detroit when it was booming. I also watched it decline into the abyss it is in now. Your right it was under the leadership of liberal progressive democrats. Most could see it, some could not. However, they kept reelecting the destroyers over and over because of their promises and freebies. When people are not self reliant they become slaves willingly. Although some of the poor white trash live there and contribute to the debacle it is mostly the blacks.

    There are other cities moving in the same direction however, the saddest thing is the whole country is also going that same way under Obama. I’m not sure it is the progressive democrats however, as much as it is the black mind set or ignorance. If that statement makes me a raciest so be it. Its true generally speaking although like I said earlier there are a lot of very good blacks as well, those are the self reliant ones.

    For some unknown reason the democrats, even under Carter could not be successful. Jimmy Carter was a good man compared with Obama, the fact is however, he also could not succeed as a president. Neither could Johnson, as a matter of fact Johnson started us down this slippery slope with his wars on poverty and drugs neither were any more successful then Vietnam. He could screw up a one care funeral. The only success he actually achieved during his presidency was destroying social security by transferring the funds to the general fund. Looking back over the last 100 years or so it’s hard to find a successful democrat president who was successful and not assassinated.

     Flint, MI is headed the same way, it it not much different than Detroit.

     MI might go from ghost town, to ghost county, to ghost state, if more people do not wake up & realize what is going on. people keep moving out because there are almost no good paying jobs left because of the democrats & unions.
    Flint, in some areas is not much more different than Detroit.

    All the more reason for my conservative talk show host friends to exert some influence. Do we have conservative minded business people with the wherewithall, integrity, and funds to come to Detroit and start businesses ? We’re a right to work state as of yesterday. Call me Glenn, Bill, Rush or Shawn. Bring some of your capitalist friends and let’s show what good we can do for the people of Detroit. We don’t need the government. Let’s make Detroit the posterchild for the good of American values. I’m a small manufacturer 1.5 miles North of 8 Mile. I love the city, its’ people and hate its’ demise. C’mon. Come see me. I’ll take you on the tour – and although I don’t know Mayor Bing, I’ll get an appointment with him for us.  I want to be a part of the solution. Look me up at jo-plug.com. What a wonderful opportunity we have to do some good. Let’s make some tea in the D Rush. Somebody show this to Glenn. The clock’s ticking.

    These photos of Detroit are definitely depressing.  You can now sponsor poor children in Detroit through Children Incorporated if you want to help out….they deal a lot with children in Appalachia and kids on Indian reservations, but with the economic downturn they are also helping out the kids in Detroit.  It is a real shame that this has happened in one of our great American citiies.

    I live in Detroit!, not just in a city that happens to be in the same county of Detroit, which is Wayne county. Detroit has been decaying for years, it will NEVER return! For every person that is decent there is one whom has NO respect for life or property, many of the individuals whom have brought the buidlings to what you see today,.. do not even live in Detroit anymore. There are some whom wish they could leave, while many believe feeding off of welfare, and depending on the government is right to a way of life! Aside from mainstreet residents , the Detroit city , local government are very corupt, have been for years.
    What my I eyes have witnessed in the past recent 10 years, indicates the majority of people have no RESPONSIBILTY or RESPECT, they wish to keep this city onto there own, as if Detroit is to be ruled by them seperate from it being on soverign United States soil !
    To ilustrate the attitude: They would kill your grandmother and take what your family owns if they need to to survive ( live on). Most have no compunction of consquences. I feel these people I experience within this city on a daily basis are human garbage, as is this PROGRESSIVE federal adminstration. I believe as the next year comes the values of human life in this city will decay , just like the buildings. Do NOT bale this city out, NO AMOUNT of money will ever be the cure to a city of people who have more who wish to destroy than there are people who wish to grow life without destroying others for gain!
    The TRUTH HURTS, but this is what is the TRUTH of where I live!

    It’s a sobering vision of what democrats and unions have done to a once proud industrial giant. Yesterday the unions lost the war for domination of the work-place in Michigan, and they made the usual asses of themselves in the process. When they don’t get their way, they get violent. Tantrums from spoiled rotten bully brats is all they have left.

    The era of unions has come to an end – and what an ugly picture they leave in their memory.

    I grew up in the 1950′s and 1960′s in a town just outside of Detroit. When the blacks tried to burn it down in 1967, many white people moved out of both towns. I graduated from high school that year and left for college in another state. I returned five years later and my little town looked like it belonged in a third world country. All of the stores had bars on their windows and doors and the streets were filled with trash. I never went back to my hometown after that and with these pictures of Detroit, it sure has gotten much worse.

    I moved out of Detroit only two years ago, if you want to get to the biggest downfall, investigate mayor Coleman Young, he started the fastest “white flight” from Detroit when he told the white people to “hit 8 mile” {the detroit boarder} he was race baiting before it was popular

    Unfortunately, those who used to live in Detroit have been moving south into Toledo, Ohio. It’s really sad. No one can live in Detoit anymore.

    Don’t make it sound like it’s the fault of Conservatives like Glenn, Bill, Rush or Sean. They didn’t make this armpit of a city fall into this condition. Start with the unions who outpriced labor to the point of pushing companies out of Detroit or into bankruptcy, and then start blaming liberals who make welfare, food stamps, and the like so enticing to lazy arse people. Glenn, Bill, Rush and Sean WORK for a living. There is nothing wrong with making a profit or even a fortune if you do it legally and don’t hurt others – check the Bible - the key is how you HELP OTHERS with it and all these gentlemen do that. Check their records on  their personal giving. Check your illustrious president and VP to see how they help others….. Obama gave about 3,000 last year to charity and Biden, that cheap skate, gave about 300.00! Why don’t you have those two and their cronies put their money where their mouth is instead of blaming everyone else and using taxpayer money to fix the problems THEY CREATED!!

    It has always amused me how they call themselves progressives, and yet continue to do things in such outdated ways. Unions, for instance, in their current form, are part of the problem. They do not embrace progress at all. They expect things to remain the same, to be done as they were 100 years ago. Yet change is required for companies, and communities, to continue to thrive. We can’t keep thinking in an industrial mentality when the country has slowly shifted away from it. The leadership in Detroit should have planned years ago for a shift in the auto industry, and created an environment where other industries could get started, and begin to grow. The progressive mindset does not think that way…it’s job security or bust.
