Just love your false bravery there little man. Of course, as you have exhibited previously, you lack the courage to show your cowardly mug. Nice try though. Just know that you are good for providing laughs.

There is really only one reason why Detroit and other cites are going down promises that cant be kept and benefits that no one deserves. Which brings me to the subject of you guessed it benefits, and to some extent entitlements. I get no benefits I have two jobs I work because I like to work that is my benefit not some over prices health care plan or other perks, my perk is a paycheck that is all I want. I am entitled to social security because I paid lots of money for it, I call it legal theft but I plan on living a long time so I will be collecting all I paid in and more, I just consider it interest on the loan.

Hey azzhole you dont know what a true free market is. A true free market would not include your corporate welfare. Detroit was profitable with unions for decades then came greedy azzholes like you and ourtsourced jobs to enemy countries like china its jerks like you that are destroying the USA. I'm praying for you and I'm sure you wont like what I'm praying for. your kind are dissapearing fast and your party numbers are dwindling. And that tor program you use to try and hide like a lil sissy doesnt work.

That's one opinion. Here's a another:

What’s actually to blame for the deep debt plaguing Detroit? Peter S. Boyer writes in this week’s New Yorker that it was the long-held arrangements with unions and workers, which began in 1937, when the U.A.W. became the sole bargaining agent for the nation’s autoworkers. While foreign car manufacturers might not have matched General Motors, Chrysler, and Ford in wages in the early 1980s, they played it smarter—specifically, Nissan built its first plant in a place with fewer union workers, whom they also paid less.“The fact that the Big Three couldn’t run a factory the way Nissan did in Smyrna [Tennessee] partly explains why, in the current crash of auto sales, Detroit finds itself in starkly more dire condition than the transplants,” writes Boyer. The pensions and benefits were what caused “the labor costs of a G.M. vehicle [to be] roughly fifteen hundred dollars more than what it cost to produce a car in the transplant factories.” As G.M. hinges its hopes on the all-electric Chevy Volt, Boyer writes,“If the Volt redeems even a portion of its promise, it will be a remarkable, and most unlikely, achievement.”

Personally, I think with most things it's a combination. Just blaming it on job-outsourcing is simply liberal attack tactics and denial of reality.

And you are proof that foolishness still exists. A true free market would allow all citizens to work for fair wages. The unions have destroyed themselves with greed and the population such as yourself have destroyed yourselves with greed and laziness. Must be irritating to have to realize you are clueless and will remain so.
