Detroit: A symbol of epic failure for progressive policies and social engineering.
Detroit in many ways is like my city of Baltimore. Both have been run into the ground by progressives for decades. Detroit was just run into the ground at a much faster pace then others. Progressive do not like it when Detroit is held up by the right as the poster child in demonstrating how progressive policies tend to be like a social and economic cancer that rot cities from the inside out. Detroit has been tittering on the edge for many years now, but the end may be soon near. Mayor Dave Bing is proposing laying off 1,000 workers in an attempt to reserve cash in the cash strapped city. The municipal union AFSCME isn't happy about the mayor's proposal, and they plan on fighting it.
What part of broke the municipal unions in Detroit don't seem to comprehend? The city could be out of money by April and some are saying that is could be as early as December. This is why I have so much contempt for Public Service Unions. They are the greedy little porkers that I've long branded them as being. Detroit is in serious financial trouble, and all they can care about is themselves. Progressives always talk about "shared sacrifices", so where is it demonstrated among the municipal unions in Detroit? It's sad that the city of Detroit which was once famous for the likes of Motown and being the industrial symbol of might in America has become what it has become today. It should come as no surprise why people in the south don't want progressive transplants to relocate their.
