Chicago has crashed and burned. 96% unemployment, over 300 shooting a day, and over 25 deaths a day, some not reported if they are in "white" neighborhoods. The unions ran all the stores out, and Daley's bull# ran all the trade shows out.

#2 The Death of manufacturing in America, took with it a good chunk of the quality of life that "Middle America" had. Gone, not ever coming back.
I disagree, what comes around goes around. Manufacturing will shift to South America as China becomes too expensive. If we make South America too expensive then it will come home once again. It can be done...

Stealing copper wire is big in Detroit.
From houses, public light poles, your A/C outside the house.

I agree to a certain extent, but things are changing fast from downtown outward. The garbage that is current'y living in Detroit will need to get with the program real fast, because they will not be able to afford property very soon in Detroit.
There is a new Government in town, they mean business and are cleaning house....literally.
And here is why.
I live here and see something much different, and so do multiple billionaires world wide.
My current thread back what I am speaking about.
