I was pretty sure this was gonna happen.
They didn't let Harrisburg get away with it either.
There are no easy ways out the the situation that the politicians took YEARS to put us into.

Why did they file for Bankruptcy? Aren't they a jackpot of car manufacturing?

not anymore ... most american cars cannot compete with foriegn cars.
Most of the foriegn cars are all built over here (under a union) anyway.
But chances are that the union guy that keys your car cause you didn't buy american isn't smart enough to know that.

You're right, they can't compete. The cars themselves may be American, Japanese, Korean, etc but the percentage of parts from various countries in each vehicle is practically the same these days. That's why I get mad at the types that still think it's un-American to buy a foreign car.
American vehicles have come a long way, but they are far from the Japanese cars in my opinion.

the owners of those companies aren't from here.
the profit dollars still go back to the country of origin.
and if I'm not mistaken, all Honda motors are still built overseas.
so, the fine technical work, the highly skilled machine work is still done over there.
the main profit goes back there.
they employ folk here to assemble parts & pieces only.
I'll bet a lot of those pieces come from Mexico and China...

.
it was predicated but, it took another 100 years for the laws to be put in place to give blacks equal, the appearance of an, footing with other all other Americans.

Blacks are the only segment of Americans that came to this country without their language, culture, religion and were not afforded the opportunity to live out the "American Dream".....

REALLY?
Kwannza, about 1,500+ different "minority" HELP organizations with more creature comforts than a warm pair of Dr. Scholl's footies.
They've had GENERATIONS to develop, nurture and exploit their "culture"
Wake up, shut up and TRY AGAIN with THAT excuse.
That's a PATHETIC excuse for NOT growing and exploring and becoming a success.

I think Detriot was made to be bankrupt, after all the kept wasting their money on sponsering car manufacturing - if people want to buy a car, they can look for dealerships and retail places themselves.

When Harrisburg tried to file for bankruptcy, they went through their own state and were shot down by their courts.

The Detroit bankruptcy was filed in Federal court which bypasses the state.

If this works, other states with the same burden (NY, CA & a whole lot more) will do it.

Then all the people who have worked for 20-30 years will be without a pention.

Of course, the politicians & unions who brokered the deals which created this situation will weather through just fine, but as usuall, the working class will be hosed!

How does Pennsylvania, New York and California have anything to do with the Michigan issue?

The politicans who go to the unions to get elected, repay the favor by allowing government employee's benifits & pension to be paid by taxpayers instead of having them contribute to a 401k.
once the politicians from one state see this formula to get elected or to say in office, they use it.
Have you heard Patterson use the term "kicking the can down the road?"
he was referring to how they just keep shuffling the problem onto the next elected official. at some point, taxpayers are paying for more non working govenment employees than there are working ones.
It bankrupts the cities and states who have done this.
