Depressing Facts About America

This guy keeps misspelling "America" as "Detroit," which seems odd, because they're not really even that close.

But keep in mind, he means America.

WR Mead wrote about this today, under the headline "Obama to Detroit: Drop Dead."

This is where blue governance has brought Detroit in the end: not even a liberal Democratic administration will step in to save the pensions of thousands of public workers and African Americans, condemning countless innocents to having their pensions and health benefits gutted in bankruptcy court.

...

Detroit has been spending on average $100 million more than it has taken in for each of the past five years. The cityís $11 billion in unsecured debt includes $6 billion in health and other retirement benefits and $3 billion in retiree pensions for its 20,000 city pensioners, who are slated to receive less than 10 percent of what they were promised...

And now Detroitís desperate request for a bailout has been turned down by the Obama White House.

Progressive politicians, wonks, and activists can only blame big corporations and other liberal bogeymen for so long. The truth is that corrupt machine politics in a one-party system devoted to the blue social model wrecked an entire city and thousands of lives beyond repair. The sooner blues come to terms with this reality, the greater chance other cities will have of avoiding Detroitís fate.

But we won't: ObamaCare is Detroit.

The media wants to talk a bunch about the Zimmerman case and have "national conversations" about lessons we need to learn from a 45-second confrontation involving two people.

Notice they don't want to have national conversations about what lessons we can learn from 51 years of True Blue Democratic administration in Detroit.

Incidentally, today's game on Twitter is retweeting all the liberals and liberal groups who tweeted about Romney saying "Let Detroit go bankrupt" before the election.
