    Detroit was a rich city. Until it wasn't.

    Most of the recessions were about to hatch in Dem Administrations. John Q Public replaced those Adminstrations. For instance, Jimmy Carter had things on the verge of collapse. Reagan came in as the recession bloomed. Cut taxes, caused an 18 yr growth spurt. Bush 43 came in following Clinton's World Com collapse. Grew out of it via taxcuts- by then the Pelosi/Reid Congress had things so screwed up, combined with the Clinton-caused (threatening to sue if loabs weren't extended to people who couldnt pay) Fannie Mae meltdown, that we were lucky to survive.

    We would've recovered faster if government had just stayed out of it. Let the failing fail. Let the strong survive untouched. Too much regulations sank biz, chased others off. Manufacturers left or are leaving daily. Too high taxes, too much regulation, too many bosses, period...

    In the meantime, federal spending never cuts... that's the main cause of recessions. Government spends too much.

    Oh Detroit was plenty rich, or at least rich enough to amass a billion in precious "works of art".

    They figured out a long time ago how that happens. See, it's quite simple. When you spend more than you make, you have a deficit. No matter how much you make you can always outspend your income (Kanye).

    My plan, as soon as I retire, is to hitch up the wagon and get the heck out of Dodge. I hope the new paradise will welcome this transplant who left to escape the disease, not help spread it!

    I think Bernie backs the unions but im not so sure about the pension companies and since each state / city has their own pension company it Depends what that state governor can do to save the pensions and i think thats the way it will stay

    just to add
    it was FDR's policies that lead to a 12 year depression
    Conversely Coolidge had us out in months

    No. We've figured it out. It comes from the Liberal spending obsession. Then couple that with a spineless group of RINOs in the Republican leadership who also like to spend money, and you've got yourself a huge money problem.

    Just look at the personal debt that Americans have built up. They have no problem with it, so they also have no problem supporting a wasteful Govt.
    The average American citizen is like two peas in a pod with their beloved Govt.
    Spend, spend, spend.

    The Democrat run metros are the cities with the worst debt, the worst crime rates, the worst homeless problem, and the worst job markets. There are several of this country's largest cities that are in extreme debt and those places can't even keep the street lights on at night. They've become third world crap holes, yet the locals continue to vote for that type of community leaders. It seems safe to assume that they either like that lifestyle, or they are just too stupid to figure out that it's their own community leaders that have put them in that position.
    So, just elect someone like a Bernie Sanders or another pos career politician like Hillary (and give us another term of Obama's policies) and we can add some more cities to the list of those that have become third world crap holes.

    This little clip proves exactly what Hillary and Bernie think about the Blacks and the Southerners.

    For those who struggle to read between the lines about what she's saying is this:

    "You are stupid, so I need to talk slow so that you can keep up."
    "I need to use improper English to drop down to your level of ignorance".
    "I'm a rich, big city elitist with a golden spoon in my mouth, and you are the scum of the earth".
    "I have no real respect for you, so I'll insult your intelligence, and I'm certain that you are so stupid that you won't recognize that I'm insulting you, and you'll vote for me anyway."
    ------Democrat candidate,
    Hillary Clinton.
