Detroit Goes Bankrupt, Wingnuts Celebrate
My hometown, the city where I was born & raised, the region where I still live and work, has filed for bankruptcy. This is the first time that a major American city has fallen.
Here is a sample of the celebration on Twitter of self-proclaimed “patriotic Americans.”
These wingnuts also do not understand that it is the municipal city government of Detroit that has failed, not the auto industry which was bailed out in 2010. The auto industry is still thriving.
Oh and, the office of Mayor is non-partisan, candidates for Mayor of Detroit do not run on party affiliation.

Collectivist Detroit files for bankruptcy same day Obama claims collectivist health care will succeed.
After three years of claiming Obama’s $85 billion UAW bailout would make Detroit city prosper, they now angrily deny they ever implied that.
