Spend a lot of taxpayer dollars to fix it up

Spend billions more on its schools

Declare martial law

Jail all its public officials

Abandon it and allow anarchy

Bulldoze it

Let it burn to the ground

Build a huge wall around it

Hire strippers for Mayor Kilpatrick

Distribute free crack to everyone

I mean, hello people! Detroit is a massive dump. I actually took a dump there, and it smelled better than the city itself.

If Detroit disappeared, Michigan would have a Republican governor. Detroit is one of the main reasons we have had to tolerate the last terrible governor.

So true. If you ever visit Detroit, wear a bulletproof vest and drive in an armored car. The city is overwhelmed by criminal gangs and the police force is virtually nonexistent - too busy having affairs with city employees. One time I drove through Detroit and someone dropped a bowling ball from a highway overpass onto my car and it crashed through the windshield. I almost died but fortunately I recovered.

Maybe they need some Robocops or ED 129s to clean up the mess.

Oops. It was late and had had a big glass of bourbon earlier. I knew it had a 9 and a 2 in it somewhere.

I've said this before - Detroit is the petry dish for liberal government. It is very much the outcome of the "victim/oppressor", "entitlement mentality" and just plain inept philosophy of liberalism. And people came out by the millions to vote for this kind of agenda for our entire country!

What's the one business doing well in Detroit? FORD - the company that didn't take the bailout pact with the government.

Morel: Independence not interference from the government is the answer. And that can be said for the entire country, because if left under liberal/progressive leadership you might as well rename our country Detroitica.

He got it right, our so called leaders would love to turn out the lights and leave us in the dark, so they can get away with turning our whole country into a slum. Mushroom soup anyone?

...So did Obama's chances of reelection.

Super-libbies like Arctic and "the judge-its hijacker" can't defend the proof of their own party's inept philosophies so they ankle-bite misspellings.

If Obama had his way, the whole country would look like Detroit (or maybe Dearborn)
