The main difference is that Christians believe that everyone should tithe 10%, while liberals believe that everyone should be taxed 90%.

"Detroit hasn`t had a Republican mayor for 50 years."

But they had an unelected Republican emergency manager forced on them by the Republicans in state government who screwed things up even more. Their mayor couldn`t do anything after that.

Hey, at least she held onto the balloons!

@patchouly, I don`t know what you`re smoking there, but I bet it ain`t cheap. Detroit hasn`t had a Republican mayor for 50 years.

That must be terrifying for her. I wonder if she`ll become paranoid and hate balloons. Also, note about shooting the carjacker. I doubt your insurance covers blood stains. So either way you are getting a new car.

"Could`ve made the world a beter place in this instance."

Or more likely killed her child in the gun fight full of panicked shooting back and forth. The woman had her hands full of bags and balloons and one of the guys already had a gun in hand. Exactly how was she supposed identify the threat, to drop her packages, get her gun out of her purse, turn off the safety, aim and shoot before the guy did and without hitting her son in the process? So many people just can`t foresee issues with what they propose to do. It all happens magically like in the movies. MOST bullets fired in panic don`t find their intended target. Even when trained policemen fire them so even worse when citizens do it.

So, Detroit utterly fails and isn`t going to improve any time soon. But instead of moving somewhere that you can get a job they just stay and continue with government relief. That tells you a lot about the people living there.

No gumption.

I had a gig in downtown Detroit earlier this year and stayed there several days. Where we were was pretty decent and seemed safe when I walked around but the thing that struck me was how dead the streets were shortly after 6pm when I assume all the office people go home. I needed a place to eat dinner and Googled for a mexican restaurant. Chose one that sounded good and walked about six blocks only to find out it was only open before 6. I had assumed they would serve dinner! Even the CVS to get a bag of Doritos closed at 7pm. People said to go to an area called Greecetown but it was a little far to walk with my knees. A shame to see the city die because of greedy people

So I see we`re arguing politics again.. well this is how I view the situation.

Gets me sick and angry that this Detroiter, who is definitely brave and level headed woman just trying to make it in this p.o.s. town, has to worry about douchebags everywhere who have no guts as men not only taking her car but- possibly kidnapping her child.

..Reasons why I`ll never own a firearm around here because I would have done used it several dozen times.

It`s pretty shxtty everyone around here have to watch their back and worry about the real possibility of kinda crap happening. I hate that it`s kind of an accepted part of life, many take the attitude of "of course what do you expect, it`s Detroit.." It`s a bad culture paradigm, and there`s always that feeling of hopelessness around the city.

Whatever, when we`re not dealing with this kind of shiznit, we love the D anyways.

The lights are slowly coming back on in the city! Adopt a crackhead to

I do blame conservatives. They are keeping the programs that we need, from moving forward. They are keeping living wages from being put in place. They are stopping all the things that need to be done in order to fix things. Erase the middle class and this is what you get. Detroit folks had a lower overall income bracket so they are the first to show the damage. It`s a little peek into your future if the Republicans/Conservatives are allowed to run things their way.

I don`t blame Republicans.
I blame Republicans AND Democrats.
Blaming just one half of a broken system is kinda silly people.

Having a democratic mayor in Detroit didn`t destroy it, the Republican/Democrat failure in Washington did.

@Gerry Just to relate it back to the post a bit more. The tope 10 most dangerous cities in the USA are run by a Democrat

So, Vote Democrat for a Socialist Utopia

@Gerry Read this for a great read out of how 51 years ruined detroit from being highest per capita income in USA to what it is now

The reasons partly lie with bad policy. The unions helped to price local car workers out of the global market. It meant that those in the union lived well, but when the economy sank and the business was unable to compete, they lost their good salaries and their health insurance. Nowadays, car makers prefer to set up in states like Alabama where costs are much lower.

@Gerry There are many things to blame on Republicans, like the failures of the No Child Left Behind program, or massive increases in defense spending not correlated to defense; But Detroit`s failure to have any semblance of fiscal sanity is not one of them.

Last Republican mayor of Detroit C. Miriani, in 1961. Since then Democrats and `progressive` policies that over inflated the state taxed out business and the auto industry and latched highly inefficient regulations. The education system also became a `progressive` disaster and self interest by unions destroyed Thompsons $200 million attempt to turnaround the situation. Corruption under Kwame Kilpatrick, corruption under Colman young. The burden on business the lack of skills and adequate teaching in the city some of the highest property taxes brought about by 50 years of Democrats has led business to move south. If Detroit stopped all services it`d still have billions of debt and interest to pay.

But Republicans!

I can`t tell if you`re serious or not.
I`ll assume that is sarcasm that Democratic policies are the cause for this and other crimes.

Factual Note: The Auto Industry {Detroit} failed under Republican control.

A dramatic interpretation of a silent video.
The carjacker was probably telling the kid "get out" so the mom is far from "heroic" or brave. I`m sure it was frightening for her, but I am so tired of the hyped up media.

In the morning I watch Channel 10. It`s the most toned down, factual reading of the news. "most factual" doesn`t mean without hyperbole. I laugh and laugh at the drama they spew....

Example, traffic light is out, cop directs traffic becomes
"I want to warn you this is graphic, watch closely how the police officer, WITHOUT REGARD FOR HIS OWN SAFETY, in the face of ONCOMING TRAFFIC as he and other FIRST RESPONDERS directed ACTUAL traffic DESPITE THE DANGER of cars SHOOTING PAST HIM. Some of them weighing MORE THAN A TON! 10 Watch News will bring you UPDATES AS THEY HAPPEN"
