Blighted home that says Detroit is going
bankrupt: Families flee leaving whole
streets empty and broken because
governor has not made enough cuts

Daily Mail [UK], by Jill Reilly

A vandalised home covered with red spray paint and smashed windows, sits vacant in an east side neighborhood of Detroit. The street used to be a busy hub of families, but its occupants have fled their homes leaving whole blocks empty and dark. The city´s budget problems have deepened to such an extent that it could run out of cash in a matter of weeks or months and ultimately be forced into what would be the largest-ever Chapter 9 municipal bankruptcy filing in the United States. Signs of decline are everywhere in Detroit--crime is rising with the murder rate of

Detroit is simply the warm up act for the rest of America´s cities run by corrupt Democratic machines. The term, white flight, impacts all of the blue state cities, leaving poor blacks, illegals and overpaid civil servants who serve mostly themselves.

My husband and I were able to run away from Detroit in 1986. Where will we run when Detroit comes to us in the form of Obama-style Progressivism?

How is this the Governor´s fault? It´s years of abuse perpetrated by the Democratic Party and their union allies in Michigan. And, if there is a Governor to blame, it would be former Governor, Jennifer Granholm.

Find any city run by liberal Democrats or even liberal Republicans, and you will find blight, corruption, crime and decay. It´s a law of their ideology, rooted in "fairness".

Use google earth to look at east Detroit, it is stunning. Whole neighborhoods have simply been buldozed away, there are sections of neatly laid out blocks only scattered buildings. I´ve seen pictures of a few high rises with trees growing out of the 20th floor window.

The article goes out of its way to note that Michigan now has a "majority White" republican administration. They fail to note anything about the long Democrat/Union history that visited this debacle. The excesses of these Dem/Union hacks now consume 49% of all revenues simply to pay retirees benefits and current employees. If my math is correct Detroit now owes three times it annual revenues.

And the Detroit city council´s answer? Why more federal money to prop it all up. Other peoples money, Obamas stash. Bankruptcy is required, for Detroit and many other cities and even states. The crushing burden of public sector union giveaways must be curbed and ultimately cut. The golden Goose (taxpayers) is dead, the gravy train is too bloated to move. Its time to tie public service salaries and benefits to the private sector norms, unions must be forbidden from political activities, they cannot be allowed to "hire" their own bosses. All public sector contracts should be approved by those who will be required to pay the bills and negotiated taxpayer advocates, not officials dependant on union money for their own jobs.

If nothing is done in 20 years we will all wake up realizing our own once fine town is the new Detroit.

How does bankruptcy save this city? Even if all that goes well, how does the city attract productive hardworking citizens and entrepreneurs? The city will still have the same (but more bitter as this will be a racist bankruptcy) voters. The city will still have the same oppressive laws designed to ensure a one race city. The city will continue to have the vast majority of its citizens in the handout give me mindset. The city is doomed and there is nothing that can save it now. One can change the finances, but one can´t change the problem and the problem is Detroit´s voters.

What #5 said. It was that "cool chick" jenny granholm who told us that she was going to make Detroit a "cool city". For 8 years she ran her mouth and for 8 years the city stayed on the road to destruction. It´s over for Detroit. The problem IMO is that obama and his demonrats along with the so-called "msm", are doing the same thing all over this country and no one seems able to stop them. Where will WE go, indeed.

Ah yes, Detroit, the shining example of liberalism on full display. I live 10 minutes from Detroit and this has been going on for years. Used to work downtown years ago when it was fairly safe during work hours. Now, won´t even consider working there due to the drive thru the ghetto.

And diversity is another great liberal dream that has spread Detroit rot into the neighboring suburbs.

Seriously, don´t you think Detroit would be a better training ground for these "army" training drills going on in Miami and Houston seeing as it´s pretty desolate. Oh, maybe too desolate for the purpose of that training they´re doing because the takeover of America involves masses of people...Now that stuff is getting me weird..

Welfare, foodstamps, section 8 housing, jobs programs etc. etc. etc. has done nothing but erode and destroy the American family and hence American cities and the nation. RIP

Most of those leaving Detroit are going to the inner ring of suburbs such as Eastpointe (which famously changed it´s name from East Detroit), the south end of Warren, Roseville, Southfield etc. They are bringing crime along with them. Just today there are stories in the Detroit News about bank robberies in Berkeley and Royal Oak and drug store robberies in Roseville. It is pretty amazing to drive through parts of Detroit and see an empty city block except for one or two homes.

A friend of mine moved into downtown Detroit about two years ago. She had just finished renovating a nice little house in a northern suburb that has had its own problems but has been rebounding for awhile now. Her Detroit townhouse was designed by a famous mid-century architect (which was what attracted her in the first place) in a 1960s urban renewal development. The area had been the hub of the black community, economically and culturally, but was razed for the freeway and the neighborhood´s residents were pushed into the Projects. My friend has put a lot of work into her townhouse, but it´s still a beautiful little bubble floating in a toilet.

Two objects that may be wreckage from missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 have been spotted floating in the southern Indian Ocean off Australia. The Australian government released pictures taken by satellite on March 16 of possible plane debris seen around 2,500km (1,500miles) southwest of Perth--one of the most remote areas of the planet. One of the objects is estimated to be 78ft (24m) in size, the other 15ft (five metres), and the sighting of the objects was said by Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott to be ´credible and potentially important´.

Pro-Russian activists, some armed, have stormed the HQ of the Ukrainian navy in the Crimean city of Sevastopol. Russian flags are flying over the base and several Ukrainian servicemen have been seen with their belongings. It comes a day after Crimean leaders signed a treaty with Russia absorbing the peninsula into the Russian Federation. Sunday´s disputed referendum which officials say backed splitting from Ukraine has been widely condemned. Crimean and Russian officials say the referendum showed overwhelming public support for joining Russia, with 97% of voters in favour. But the West and the Ukrainian government in Kiev say the vote--organised in two weeks and boycotted

The torment being endured by the relatives of the passengers on board the missing Malaysian airliner is almost impossible to imagine. For 12 days since Flight MH370 from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing vanished, they have waited for news of their loved ones. And their anxieties and fears have been compounded by the clumsy way this baffling affair has been handled by the Malaysian authorities. Clearly, the disappearance of the Boeing 777 is an unprecedented event that would have taxed the resources of any country. But the varying--and often conflicting--accounts that the Malaysians have given about what might have happened to

The search operation is now concentrating on huge areas to the north and south of Malaysia, after locational ´pings´ detected by a satellite appeared to indicate the plane was somewhere on an arc stretching either north up to to Central Asia, or south, to the Indian Ocean and Australia.

Al-Qaeda has published a list of car-bomb targets for its followers in Britain, including FA cup matches and the Savoy hotel. The twelfth issue of Inspire, published by al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, urges supporters to maximise casualties by targeting people--rather than buildings--in heavily populated areas. It offers instructions on how to build a car bomb using materials that will not arouse suspicion and frequently cites the example of Faisal Shahzad, the failed Times Square bomber. But its most chilling passages are reserved for a country-by-country list of targets. In the UK, it suggests events with live TV coverage, including

White House executive pastry chef Bill Yosses is resigning after First Lady Michelle Obama fundamentally changed his job duties to focus on healthier food. Yosses is leaving the White House in June to work on a new project focusing on “food literacy” and The New York Times says Michelle is “partly to blame.” The openly gay chef was hired by Laura Bush in 2007 to make his trademark cookie plates and sugar sculptures. Mrs. Obama took over in 2009 and ordered Yosses to make healthier plates in smaller portions. (Snip) “I don’t want to demonize cream, butter, sugar and eggs,”

Health industry officials say ObamaCare-related premiums will double in some parts of the country, countering claims recently made by the administration. The expected rate hikes will be announced in the coming months amid an intense election year, when control of the Senate is up for grabs. The sticker shock would likely bolster the GOP’s prospects in November and hamper ObamaCare insurance enrollment efforts in 2015. The industry complaints come less than a week after Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius sought to downplay concerns about rising premiums in the healthcare sector. She told lawmakers rates would increase in 2015 but

Government officials now admit the data system and transponder quit communicating after the pilots said things were OK. That means they didn’t lie. The official Malaysian account of the last contacts made to and received by Flight MH370 is unraveling. As it does, the sinister interpretations of what happened in the cockpit of the Boeing 777 become less persuasive. We return to the all-important timeline. Originally, the Malaysians said that the last words from the cockpit—from the copilot, “All right, good night”—were spoken to air traffic controllers as the airplane left Malaysian air space at 1:30am. This week, that timing was significantly changed
