Boo, freakin’ hoo. Detroit was once the richest city in the nation, and despite that advantage its liberal leaders didn’t have the foresight to attract other industries. Whose fault it that? And beginning with the Model Cities Program, Detroit has been the beneficiary of every liberal urban planning scheme conceived, yet it is crumbling today . The city is a testament to the failure of these well intentioned but destructive programs. Add unions to the mix and you’ve got a complete disaster.
