Some of the retirees worked hard for their pension.

“Slightly below above-average”

arguably garrulous

If you want to bail out Detroit... keep in mind that you'll then have to bail out every city in California.

Do you know why the big banks "failed?"

Because they KNEW that they were "too big to fail."

They acted with knowledge that they would be bailed out by THE TAXPAYERS when their recklessness blew up in their faces.

The bail out culture created an environment where banks knew they could take any and all risks... because the TAXPAYERS were there as a safety net.

Do you want to extend that luxury to every American city???

If so, just remember that YOU will PAY FOR IT!!!

We need to bail out Detroit. Otherwise, when Los Angeles needs a bailout, it might not get it.

I'll make you a counter-offer:

Part of the bailout process should be the immediate replacement of all elected politicians currently in office in Detroit, from the top on down. Appointees who wish to keep their jobs could be determined on a case by case basis, as determined by a random grouping of taxpayers from across the nation.

Also part of that, no retirement monies for any of the incumbents being kicked out; no lucrative health care packages either. Nothing.

To sweeten the deal, toss out the two state senators also.

I hate it when I have to compromise, but here is a sure-fire way to get me to vote for bailing out Detroit.

I have definite proof that it has already gotten Australia. It's not too late for them though; they can still wipe out several major cities and contain it.
