actually this sentiment is REALLY old. The articles of confederation failed over monetary issues. Many of the time argued that the banks did it on purpose and were actually responsible for the largest counterfeiting scheme meant to undermine the new nation never told.
They screw us, we do nothing, time passes, we forget and the cycle repeats itself.
The thing is we are always catching on a little earlier, a little more in depth, and are increasingly angrier after every fraud.
We really can trace this back to the first issuance of banknotes in Europe and the Rothschild family. I swear to you, one day the entire line of them will be erased from existance. They have never learned when to hold them and when to fold them.
Detroit's auto jobs kept vanishing as the Big Three lost market share to foreign automakers starting in the 1970s. At the same time, many of the autoworkers themselves were leaving the city to live in the suburbs, further weakening the city's tax base.

The government could fix it. Just declare Detroit a free-from-tax district for 5 years, and big companies may even pull off-shore labor mills to get in there. A double win.

a reply to: Matt1951I dig what you are saying, but Michigan's climate is less to be desired for rebuilding jobs. They essentially have become Cincinnatti. That place looks 4x as worse as D-Town and NOTHING came back, it all went over the river to Covington.
