(1) At this point, the city of Detroit owes money to more than 100,000 creditors.

(2) Detroit is facing $20 billion in debt and unfunded liabilities. That breaks down to more than $25,000 per resident.

(9) An astounding 47 percent of the residents of the city of Detroit are functionally illiterate.

we are going to have to do something long term about welfare. What about restarting the Marcus Garvey movement? Maybe it could fix Liberia. IDK.

That's so they just have to call the coroner. Nobody wants to deal with those doctor wannabe EMT's.

I've been out there once. Drove from Niagra Falls through Windsor. Stopped in Detroit, went to a car museum, didn't see the bad areas really. So abandoned buildings, but nothing really stuck out, The upper peninsula in Michigan is beautiful, but nothing to see in the glove part.

With today's technology, it might as well be the wild west out there.

The country would be a better place if we just moved every welfare recipient in the country there and let the city become a gigantic housing project. At least the indignants would stop affecting the rest of productive society because they'd be isolated.
