Oh, and there is nothing to "bail out". Tell the investors and employees they should have made better decisions.

See, that's what happens when you promise benefits you can't pay for and have no intention of even trying, just like the Post Office.

Detroit ruined itself by building turd cars and trucks with a life span of the time length of payment contract till the japs came along with high quality competition. Also the amerikan auto makers couldn't bust their asses quick enough to jump on "one world b clintoons" nafta bulls--t and move their junk south o da border for cheap scab labor...... and the durkins still couldn't make money. What a sick ass country we have and all over worthless print as you go asswipe money.

is it racism when blacks burn & loot a city as they did in Detroit ? or go wilding in Chicago and other cities, bet some white person forced them to act like fools??

is it racism or profiling when black drug street gangs kill other blacks and black babies in cribs in Detroit, Chicago, boston doing drive by shootings in drug deals gone bad???

Blacks profile and kill more unarmed blacks in American cities than any other ethnic group on the planet surface. bet that's racism too?

so where is the aclu, injustice department launching civil rights investigations??

In fact why are you not in the streets being Proactive leading a march or working to ending violence in da community???

Face it black communities in American cities are just out of control.

Even a Negro has to be embarrassed to admit that black people can't go to a movie (chunkys Chicago) without breaking out into a gun fight inside the theater??

or go to a memorial service in chicago last week for that Florida moron who got shot for pretending to be a fool and the negros end up killing and wounding other negros attending the service???

( I'd use the n word but the censors would bleep it out. but N word rappers like chris the woman beater can sing praises about n word people and the n word people love it??)

come on man that is really lame

so you go ahead whine about blacks but they are an embarrassment.

Bailing out is a Pandora's box. Once opened it
only follows that any and every city has no need
to exercise any fiscal responsibility ... simply
keep being irresponsible and then pass the buck
along to every other taxpayer.

No one outside of Detroit or Chicago or Cleveland
should be responsible for the bad decisions and
outright corruption of those cities or any other
cities apart from those they live in.

Detroit has noting to worry about. Now that Obama has determined George Zimmerman really was guilty, no matter what the courts and jury said, he is going to focus on the economy.

It's racism when you classify everything by the race of the people involved.

What about the millions of blacks who don't commit any crimes? Who moved out of Detroit along with the white people? Who don't constantly use the n-word.

Lumping people's actions together because of their race is racist.

Poverty & drug use is the more relevant factor in the majority of crimes, not race. No one commits a crime because of the color of their skin.

PS, Repubbies, you might want to check out who IS spending public money on Detroit:

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/07/26/pl...

"In the same week that Detroit announced its bankruptcy, a state board unanimously approved plans for a new hockey arena for the Red Wings -- a decision that has raised a few eyebrows among critics.

The new arena will be funded in part with $284 million in tax dollars."

Who's behind this, you ask? Those free-spending liberals? Guess again:

"
Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder and others defended against criticism that the $650 million project should be financed entirely with private money because the city currently can't provide basic services and retirees are facing cuts in their pensions. The 18,000-seat arena is designed to be a catalyst for more development and to link downtown and midtown, turning a blighted area into a business, residential and entertainment district.

"This is part of investing in Detroit's future," said Snyder, a Republican who blessed a state-appointed emergency manager's request to take the city into bankruptcy last week."

LOL...you can't make this stuff up.

If the liberal/progressives had their way the entire project
would have been financed with OPD (other people's dollars)
in the belief it is their right to give a puck.

It appears this falls into the realm of matching funds, but
by the time it is all over the unions building this arena will
make this 650 million project a 1.5 billion rathole. Consider
yourself lucky there are some idiots out there actually willing
to invest a dime in Detroit.

Try this one on for size: rather than expect the federal
government to pick up the Detroit debt, let Michigan itself
swallow it whole?
