115. i didn't say you did. BUT THAT'S WHAT THE PLAN IS: HOMEOWNERS WHOSE HOMES
ARE IN THE WAY TO BE PAID "MARKET VALUE".

That is my major objection to what's going on in Detroit; that & the planned land giveaways to the rich (on the backs of those folks who must "unfortunately" be dispossessed for the "greater good").


You may not favor it, but that is the plan that was announced, & I haven't noticed you decrying it or fighting it -- just joining in the slanging match on me. Every one of your posts has been about how it's "necessary" to follow the mayor's plan, & how i don't understand anything because i don't live there.

I understand slum clearance & urban renewal & "planned shrinkage" & "benign neglect" quite well, because Detroit is only one of a long list of cities who went before, & in every case, low-income people get screwed, often DELIBERATELY, TO REMOVE THEM.

History didn't begin when you were born.
