Did I see right ?

Did those robbers calmly drive away while the law enforcement officers went in the business ?

Quite frankly. I do not know who  Stefan Molyneux is.

I just saw the video on YouTube, it looked interesting at it was about Detroit situation. So I thought of forward it to this discussion.

But who is Stefan Molyneux?

A journalist maintaining his own radio station and posting a lot on YouTube. He leans strongly to the Republican side, and he is really good at manipulating figures. A brain.

His Detroit post is quite irritating, actually. Too many repetitive figures, too much blame on race and Democrats, and not a single word on the most important single cause of Detroit's decline: That the (mostly white and Republican) management of the car industry failed completely to keep pace with economic realities, mainly with the fact that the Sado-Arabian friends tripled their prices. Europeans and Japanese were prepared (through high fuel taxes), GM and Ford and Chrysler just ran into the trap.

 Hi JJ2007:

 This was coming for years. What also happened was Americans discovered the Japs could make a better car,
 even with that American efficentcy expert. I forgot his name but he helped put the Japs on the winning route.
 We had a car accident back in 1967. Somebody in a white van ran into left side of our towed camper trailer.
 This accident happened in America. The state was Michigan, the town or city, was Dearborn. We just happened
 to be driving a Brand new Ford Falcon. Guess what you can't get on a Sunday or Monday, a Gas tank for a Ford.
 It was a gold colored 1967 Ford Falcon. Detriot has recently declared Bankruptcy. They eventually took the car
 to Lansing, Michigan, USA. I would have brought the smaller part to the bigger Part! The smaller part would be
 the gas tank! Dearborn is the HQ for the Ford Motor Company! HQ Headquarters.

it may well be a domino type problem, too
one city goes bankrupt, the rest of the country has to carry it, causing the next, and so on
on the bright side, maybe we'll finally see some reform

Apparently, municipal bankruptcy is the cool new trend.  :icon_eek:
...For example,...the affluent resort town that I am currently vacationing in, recently declared bankruptcy.

...Probably has something to do with zombies invading the political realm,...and whichever is the next upcoming apolcalpse,...
