Democracy's corpse lies vanquished across the ruined ramparts of Detroit, Michigan. A pillow placed over her face by bankers, suffocated the life out of her, as citizen patrols now replace police, (headline) Detroit Citizens Protect themselves After Police Force Decimated. A city of two million in the 1950s is now reduced to scant 700,000 stragglers today. Detroit isn't behind the nation, she is the spear point, the same maladies found in Motown can be found in any city in the United States.

The elected Detroit Mayor and city council were superseded by state edict, appointing Kevyn Orr, as an emergency manager. Emergency is the right word, all right.

And our government pursues yet another Free Trade agreement, just to make sure there's plenty of low wage competition, because when it comes to driving down wages, the more the merrier.
