    Detroit is a pit, the entitlement capital of the country.

    Detroit proves my case! One case in a long list of such.

    Funny, those people USED to have jobs.

    I mean there used to be JOBS there. LOW UNEMPLOYMENT. What happened?



    One MIGHT make the argument that CAPITALISM failed them first, huh?

    Something rather big that has NOTHING to do with Capitalism has changed in the past 80 years in Detroit. :eusa_whistle:

    It's common sense.. if your kid's a fuck up who can't get it right, or maybe is just down on his luck, you don't just throw money at them.

    There have to be conditions and goals that must be met.. and the help has to be finite.

    I totally agree with that. Unions are what ruined the business there.

    I was watching the reality show, "Hard Core Pawn" on the history channel the other night.

    It's about a real Pawn Shop located right in the middle of the hood in Detroit.

    The native Detroit people who frequent the store are the most uneducated, rude, and obnoxious people you have ever seen.

    One woman wanted to pawn her TV for $200 dollars. When they told her it wasn't even worth a $100.

    She became belligerent, saying; "I want my $200 dollars" and "somebody's going to give me my $200 dollars".

    There were several other people with the same attitude of demanding money from the pawn brokers.

    As though they were "entitled" to be paid for any piece of junk they happened to bring into the store.

    Detroit was once the epicenter of American innovation and entrepreneurship and accordingly, the UAW has done everything in its power to make the city a world class failure and they've succeeded beyond anyone's wildest dreams.
