Whoever Detroit officials listened to conduct business was a bad call. Usa after WWII was one powerful country. With this ridiculous spending on undeserved pensions and salaries it was bound to happen. People on public dime should not live like there is no tomorrow. I actually sawr a retired policeman with a fair pension.$2900 monhly with 26 years. In taylor some pensions r over twice that. Detroit being run by greedy officials along with no accountability through checks and balances caused this mess. Ohio has the state government look over cities and municipalaties to make sure fairness is in place. Why didn't michigan have this policy? There r smaller cities like taylor,sterling heights,romulus etc. that needed this all along. Taylor pays high pensions but has no money for school improvements and new buildings,. Why is that. Where is used to live in lorain ohio they r building a new high school. This city isn't rich. But allocations of funds r done properly with state oversight and suoervision. Wayne county is another prime example of greed and mismanagement. Buddy hiring and good 'ole boy network that siphoned money needlessly. What gives here? After all it is our money!!

MSNBC caters to that segment of the population, nothing they say is relevant and they know it. They are obligated to that certain grouping or would be off the air.

Ed Schultz tried to be a conservative host when he first started in radio and he was a flop.
He needed a more stupid audience who would listen to him so he naturally went over to the left side of the aisle where the voters and listeners are more prone to being low information people.

Schultz is a dumbass. That city has had a democrat mayor since 1963. Thank those idiots and the unions for the fall of Detroit.
