    Brother Chuck ... we don't delete threads on request ... but i think it's a good one!

    Do you think he can save Detroit?

    I don't know a lot about Detroit, but it does appear that it needs saving.

    If not him, who? Is there someone more qualified for the job in your opinion?

    It seems no one has done it yet, why not give this Brother a shot?

    :heart:

    I and others don't feel or think those who created this mess are bound to clean it up for our sakes...

    And what I've posted elsewhere explains why not...

    FYI...

    No one post or thread can or will sum up what the decline of my adopted city is a bad reflection of...

    But, after everything else has been claimed or say, to me it's all a bad reflection of class and race warfare...

    Hence is what resistance efforts are bred of...

    Do send up your prayers for a better futher, not just for Detroit, and for all of us:

    On our terms!

    Are any of you placing within the context of automation/cybernation/hostile takeovers/downsizing/and outsourcing the decline of job oversaeas, i. e., for our unskilled black folk and/or less well educated whites decling jobs opportunties, too?

    Flashforward and when has the empty promise of reform matched those expected repayments aka the government bailouts of the major players who brought about the nation's economic woes to begin with?!?

    Even I'm just making it up as I go along, or we're living in the midst of an Orwellian like era, even if an african american is the nation's president...

    One hopes and prays he can do better than this, during his second term in office...
