    abandoned.  No rocket science there.  But abandonment isn't enough, or white suburbanites wouldn't give a damn about kwame because he is someone elses problem.  But they do give a damn, they obsess over it and blame all their own problems on it and smugly wait for a great-white-hope to re-establish rule (that would be the EFM).

    And it isn't just detroit that is dependent upon the auto-industry, but also the lilly-white suburbs and most of southeast michigan.  (In fact, probably more so given how so few plants remain in the city.)  So you really can't blame the auto industry.

    "The parameter of my argument" is simple - the EFM is simply part of a continuity of aggression towards detroit by financial elites in self-exile and dumb white suburbanites that dont know whose battle they are fighting or that they are next:  Detroit has a $1.2B school budget that Snyder's patrons want, and when they get that they will move onto the suburbs.

    So,what are your parameters?  It isn't about the $1.2B school budget or the water department or the bus system and police force budget, that instead Snyder is running things like a charity and doing all this out of the goodness of his heart?  That it isn't ALL ABOUT THE MONEY?

    To any wingnut: If you pay my taxes I'll give you a job.
