These numbers are staggering especially those that show in 1950 there were 296,000 manufacturing jobs in Detroit and today there are a whole 27,000. Read the other 24 facts and then just get sick.

Good old Barry is really helping the US down that road. He will have us equal to Detroit before he leaves office.

I forgot to check this one with Politifact so maybe none of those numbers are true. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Why don't we check with Obama's web site in Washington to see if they are true.

It should take less time to go to the horse's mouth than going through Politifact. I caught them in a terrible lie tonight. They said that Dee Dee Myers, the old Clintonista, had written a letter that she said she didn't write. She didn't have to lie, though,since the woman who is said to have written the letter was named Meyers, see the difference. Neither of her other names were Dee either. Pants on Fire fits them this time.

Can you imagine the fear decent Blacks and Whites living in Detroit have when the sun goes down? Too afraid to call an ambulance when they need one because they know when they return home their home will have been burglarized.
I knew an elderly Black couple on my beat who took turns watching their car all night long when there was a rash of batteries being stolen from vehicles.
I once took a report of an armed robbery of a middle aged Black female who was returning on foot from a grocery store. She was so distraught because all the money she needed to survive that month was taken from her.
Later, after she finally got back to her apartment that same evening, she found her kitchen window smashed in and her most cherished possessions gone.
BTW, I can tell you a multitude of stories just as sad that never were published in any newspaper because the crimes are that common.

This all has to be a lie because the liberals will tell us it is all Bush's fault and the republicans fault and maybe even the nasty tea party's fault.

Go ahead and tell some more about the place so our leading progs can call you a liar. After all, they have read their left leaning blogs and never seen stories like yours about the older woman.

Thanks.

I could tell you stories about nearly every conceivable big
city crime I encountered. They'd include me getting shot to me shooting a suspect outside an Elvis concert on a stakeout to high speed chases to outrageous crimes that would leave you thinking we're an uncivilized species. The real tragedy is that it doesn't have to be this way. Our leaders simply won't do what is necessary to stop it.

At least you found a less scary place to retire and if you found those rings in your avatar, probably a good way to supplement your retirement funds.
