136. arbitrary and meaningless
The entire area is "Detroit" for all practical purposes. How many are trapped within the arbitrary political boundaries of Detroit proper rather than living in the suburbs is no justification for seeing Detroit as fair game for wholesale destruction.

What is this new thinking? "Things are really bad, so we must now make them worse, and no one can complain." On every issue we are seeing that "logic."

"The economy is really bad, so you people at the bottom will have to have more hardships imposed on you."

"The schools are really in trouble (from being abandoned) so now we will have to abandon them to save them."

"The investors destroyed Greece, so now you workers will have to suffer more and we will have to bail out the investors and give them more of Greece."

The Republicans were fairly straightforward about this. Watching Democrats and liberals and progressives try to come up with ways to promote these insane ideas and still sound like they are liberals and progressives is something to witness.
