Why not? The city is bankrupt... we can get the WHOLE place for pennies on the dollar!

Think about it... an entire city just for ATS...

First thing, we will have to rename the place... "Detroit" has too much of a negative stigma...

Next, we will have to get the auto industry the hell out of there. They can relocate to Mexico, most of their manufacturing is there anyway... we can retool the place to make organite pyramids and free energy gravity engines...

We can rename the neighborhoods to attract members to make the move based on their favorite forums... UFOville, Doomsburgh, Conspiratoria, you get the idea...

An entire city of freethinkers... the coffee shop conversations would be EPIC...

Corruption would be difficult in our new city... you would get sent down the river as soon as you are outed...

The best part? The currency will be based on ATS points... (off topic posts and bad decorum would be a thing of the past... now the points are worth something...
) BUT trade and barter would be more highly encouraged...

We could have our own little dystopia... a damn entertaining one at that!

Any takers??

I got 14 quid on me is that any help? but that will mean I will not eat until next week.
As long as we get a Robocop statue Iam in

I think its a great idea but TPTB would nuke us within 40 minutes.

No way... we have enough "channelers" here to ask the aliens for protection from the nukes... they did take down the Russian meteorite after all... see, no worries!

(And yes... the Robocop statue stays
)

Absolutely! We can co-opt the police department's riot shields and lend them to your visitors as monkey poo deflectors... this just sounds better and better...

Why would you want to invest into a failed city

filled with people that only move to get to liquor store to load up on cheaper alcohol

I bet you they don't even store pricier spirits in their stores

Oh my... Jordan Collier picked wrong city, He should have picked Detroit over Seattle and made Detroit pretty again.. that would have saved a lot of ATS money..

We need promicin lab and we can do it ourselves.. and TPTB would be us .. grins


Intriguing though. what would city look like after one year ATSers had moved in.. weirder than Roswell.. i bet.
I wonder if Greer, Jones and Icke will move in too.. OH NO They will !!!!

I wonder, how would this affect people living in Detroit? serious question.. i never seen or been in a bankrupt city.

No garbage man? no electricity? water? shops closed?

Once again, yes! May buy a little summer place there myself


Our city council would be made up of moderators... elections every two years and a limit of one term... keep the career politicos, errr, career mods from taking over...

For REAL transparency of government our city hall will be completely made of glass with a P.A. system that broadcasts every word spoken inside...

Real chips....1/2 inch thick and cooked in beef dripping served with mushy peas and a wooden fork in some newspaper
The "diet" burger....one cow between 2 large pieces of bread with enough salad to cover arizona....just so you can say you're on a diet
