Detroit has a dead battery

Detroit today became the largest city in U.S. history to file for bankruptcy as the state-appointed emergency manager filed for Chapter 9 protection.

Surprise, surprise.

Once the Japanese stopped bombing Pearl Harbor and began manufacturing cars, Detroit would have been better off falling into a sink hole.

Once Detroit’s auto industry began coughing like an old Pinto years ago, steep population and tax base falls set up Detroit to get knocked out by a barroom left you could see coming from Wichita.

Getting Detroit back on its feet would be like getting Billy Graham to spring for drinks.

    Maybe Detroit could transfer their workers to Japan, China, or whatever country upper (their a**) management sent the jobs. When I had a Saturn, I believe they claimed it was made in the USA. It was only assembled here, parts made elsewhere.

    All those years of fiscally conservative leadership have finally taken their toll on once mighty Detroit. If only the Democrats had been running the place the whole time, I am sure Detroit would be on solid financial footing.
