Both men are saying the same thing in different ways. Both say they can bring crime down and demolish homes too. The streetlights will be shining brightly....And everything else you want to hear.
I propose a hot dog eating contest with a ten minute time limit so we won't get bored. The man who downs the most hot dogs and buns in ten minutes will become top hot dog of Detroit.

As long as they change policies from the last fifty years that has drove the city to where it is now anyone would be an inprovement.

How ever when they re-elect the same tired old black democrats back into city hall to work hand in hand with the corrupt unions who with the corrupt black democrats have created this fiscal mess
you will end up with more of the same.
Nothing can change until there is a total change in the governmental structure of the city.
all new faces, new political parties, no more unions voting in lock step with democrats to keep one party in power in return for fat cat union contracts no one can afford.
no more excessive taxes, over regulations, corrupt city hall inspectors demanding bribes to get things done in the city.
New taxes lots of paper works fees, fines on welfare, drug dealers, guns, ammo, soup kitchens, illegal immigrants which will drive them to leave the city for more user friendly Chicago.
Chicago which is the closest sanctuary city ,Chicago loves and welcomes illegals, welfare queens and drug dealers with guns the liberal city officials love more welfare and illegals cause they get more federal funding and can raise all sorts of taxes to support that bloated fiscal mess in chicago.
then you open lots of offices to subsidize business, lower all taxes fees, permits cost for new business, sell at low cost or just give business properties in which they can locate a business.
take down the slums and low income housing, build instead new high end condos, luxury high end apts to attract the high paid executives and highly trained skilled lower tax paying workers you want to attract to Detroit.
You See poor people, welfare queens, illegal immigrants, black drug dealers with guns, armed robbers, arsonist et al have never built anything positive or good in any city they have ruined any where in America..
Working class people on the other hand along with business have a track record of building successful happy communities. they expect good schools safe neighborhoods, play grounds etc and they will come if you have them in Detroit.
remember that axiom from business economics which states.
" what you tax you get less of what you subsidize you get more of"
well what do you want for the future of Detroit?
your tax policies will decide what the future of da city will look like.
your tax policies from years and years have already decided what the present day Detroit looks like. do you like Detroit today??
Remember your taxes and policies made detroit what it is today.
good work liberals.
if Jessie jackson and the aclu whine and complain about the new Detroit you have built from the ashes of the old Detroit send the welfare queens. illegal immigrants, black drug dealers with guns. armed robbers, arsonist, street walkers to see them and liv with them. see how they like it.
Jessie gots lots of room in his large old restored mansion at 35 and south park in Chicago, bet he don't pay no property taxes on the place cause he is a minister!( of the church of whats happening now and employment office on the south side of chicago)
He is always hustling jobs for his kids who like all them other blacks on the south side can never find a job.
Guess they don't know you have to go out and actually look for a job like everyone else on the planet does.
