Detroit Works project to offer vision for city: Turn liabilities into assets

There are 14 comments on the www.freep.com story from Aug 6, 2012, titled Detroit Works project to offer vision for city: Turn liabilities into assets. In it, www.freep.com reports that:

Two years into its often rocky and controversial process, the Detroit Works project is about to unveil its draft strategies for remaking the city -- steps that might include everything from training unemployed people on dismantling derelict homes to creating artists' colonies in empty factories.

Between now and Sept.20, the Detroit Works Long-Term Planning Team will host a series of community meetings, open houses and other events to acquaint Detroiters with its ideas. The team then will take their feedback and work it into final recommendations by the end of October.

Teach them to VALUE EDUCATION, TO STUDY and LEARN. Their parents didn't have those values.

Teach them that showing up on time and hard work is a necessity to be successful. Their parents didn't have those personal assets.

Teach them that criminal behavior will inevitability land you in jail and your criminal record does not bode well for future jobs. Their parents didn't model good behavior.

Teach them nothing is their fault, and that everybody else's possessions should be shared with them, so go ahead and steal, assault and prey on their fellow citizens.

The Great Society that President LBJ sought to bring about has created generations and generations and generation and generations who have grown USED to getting things for free and not improving their stead in life.

Let's see what they come up with instead of being negative about everything. If Works has ideas and can do something positive, great. Some of what Works does depends upon donated property, but it's being donated because the owners don't want or can't handle it so it's not just like asking for free stuff. They are actively recycling structures and putting people in homes.
Enough with all the negativity.

Did the wife of Cong. John Conyers ( D ) get out of jail yet ?

She got a $40,000 kickback on Detroit city garbage contracts and I wonder what she is planning for this program ?

The 37 month sentence is good until May 2013. However, Monica has been transferred to a transition type facility and may get an early release for good behavior. She has not taken any bribes at Camp Cupcake.

Chicago sounds like a Chinese nightmare.
Maybe the answer is in these questions:

1. Why does Obama have a Connecticut Social Security Number?

2. Why does Obama look like his mother's communist college professor Frank Marshall Davis?

3. How did Obama's grandmother die 8 days before the 2008 election?

4. How did Obama get half his Chicago estate from convicted felon Tony Rezco for free?

5. Why hasn't MF Global CEO Jon Corzine been charged with a crime after "misplacing" 3 billion dollars?

6. Why did White House advisor Valerie Jarret stop Obama from killing Bin Laden 3 times?

7. Where is Obama's mistress, Vera Baker

Because he's a little girlie-man that never had to work a day in his stinking worthless life.

Too little too late for Detroit. Even if they come up with ideas, unless the population is changed, everything will be destroyed in less than a year. Mobs/gangs run the place and you can see what that's done.

Chicago's well on it's way...southside is already there.

Among your foolishness,#5 is valid and meaningful.

Yes, WHY hasn't MF Global CEO Jon Corzine been charged with a crime after "misplacing" 3 billion dollars?

The rest is snarky FOXLIES.

But, WHY NO ACTION on Corzine? Why no jail?
And why no capital punishment for MF Global?
