Detroit has been democrat run for over 50 years. The lesson to be learned is.......don't elect democrats. They ruin everything they touch, i.e., Dumbama and the U.S.!!!!

I don't have cable TV (and can't pick up stations with an antenna), so all I know about the Detroit situation is what I read online. I try to stick to the Associated Press and local news sources.

It's very sad. The tax base as eroded, they have 90,000 abandoned properties, excessive crime, estimated 47% of population are functionally illiterate (found that on HuffPo), they've lost 25% of their population in the last 10 years, the list goes on and on. So many problems and not enough solutions.

Time to bulldoze, hold a big garage sale, and regroup.
