    DETROIT


    By Frosty Wooldridge For 15 years, from the mid 1970's to 1990, I worked in Detroit, Michigan. I watched it descend into the abyss of crime, debauchery, gunplay, drugs, School truancy, car-jacking, gangs and human depravity. I watched entire

    City blocks burned out. I watched graffiti explode on buildings, cars, trucks, Buses and school yards. Trash everywhere!
    [​IMG]
    Detroiters walked through it, tossed more into it, and ignored it. Tens of Thousands, and then hundreds of thousands today exist on federal welfare, Free housing, and food stamps!

    With Aid to Dependent Children, minority women birthed eight to 10, and In one case, one woman birthed 24 children as reported by the Detroit Free Press, all on American taxpayer dollars.

    [​IMG]
    A new child meant a new car payment, new TV, and whatever mom Wanted. I saw Lyndon Baines Johnson's 'Great Society' flourish in Detroit. If you give money for doing nothing, you will get more Hands out taking money for doing nothing.

    Mayor Coleman Young, perhaps the most corrupt mayor in America, Outside of Richard Daley in Chicago, rode Detroit down to its knees... He set the benchmark for cronyism, incompetence, and arrogance. As a black man, he said, "I am the MFIC." The IC meant "in charge". You can figure out the rest.

    [​IMG]
    Detroit became a majority black city with 67 percent African-Americans.

    As a United Van Lines truck driver for my summer job from teaching math And science, I loaded hundreds of American families into my van for a new Life in another city or state.

    Detroit plummeted from 1.8 million citizens to 912,000 today. At the Same time, legal and illegal immigrants converged on the city for the Free government handouts, so much so, that Muslims number over 300,000. Mexicans number 400,000 throughout Michigan, but most Work in Detroit. As the whites moved out, the Muslims moved in.

    [​IMG]
    As the crimes became more violent, the whites fled. Finally, unlawful Mexicans moved in at a torrid pace. Detroit suffers so much shoplifting That grocery stores no longer operate in many inner city locations. You Could cut the racial tension in the air with a knife! Detroit may be one Of our best examples of multiculturalism: pure dislike, and total Separation from America ..

    Today, you hear Muslim calls to worship over the city like a new American Baghdad with hundreds of Islamic mosques in Michigan, Paid for by Saudi Arabian oil money. High school flunk-out rates Reached 76 percent last June, according to NBC's Brian Williams.

    Classrooms resemble more foreign countries than America .. English? Few speak it! The city features a 50 percent illiteracy rate and growing.
    [​IMG]
    Unemployment hit 28.9 percent in 2009 as the auto industry vacated The city. In Time Magazine on October 4, 2009, "The Tragedy of Detroit:
    How a great city fell, and how it can rise again," I choked on the writer's Description of what happened. "If Detroit had been ravaged by a hurricane, And submerged by a ravenous flood, we'd know a lot more about it," said Daniel Okrent. "If drought and carelessness had spread brush fires across
    The city, we'd see it on the evening news every night." Earthquake, tornadoes, You name it, if natural disaster had devastated the city that was once the Living proof of American prosperity, the rest of the country might take notice.
    [​IMG]
    But Detroit , once our fourth largest city, now 11th and slipping rapidly, has had no such luck. Its disaster has long been a slow unwinding that seemed to remove it from the rest of the country.

    Even the death rattle that in the past year emanated from its signature industry brought more attention to the auto executives than to the people of the city, who had for so long been victimized by their dreadful decision making."

    [​IMG]
    As Coleman Young's corruption brought the city to its knees, no amount of federal dollars could save the incredible payoffs, kickbacks and illegality permeating his administration. I witnessed the city's death from the seat of my 18-wheeler tractor trailer because I moved people out of every sector
    of decaying Detroit .

    "By any quantifiable standard, the city is on life support. Detroit 's treasury is $300 million short of the funds needed to provide the barest municipal services," Okrent said. "The school system, which six years ago was compelled by the teachers' union to reject a philanthropist's offer of $200 million to build

    15 small, independent charter high schools, is in receivership. The murder rate is soaring, and 7 out of 10 remain unsolved. Three years after Katrina devastated New Orleans , unemployment in that city hit a peak of 11%. In Detroit today,
    the unemployment rate is 28.9%. That's worth spelling out: twenty-eight point nine percent.
    [​IMG]
    At the end of Okrent's report, and he will write a dozen more about Detroit, he said, "That's because the story of Detroit is not simply one of a great city's collapse, it's also about the erosion of the industries that helped build the country we know today. The ultimate fate of Detroit will reveal much about
    the character of America in the 21st century.

    If what was once the most prosperous manufacturing city in the nation has been brought to its knees, what does that say about our recent past? And if it can't find a way to get up, what does that say about America's future?"

    [​IMG]
    As you read in my book review of Chris Steiner's book,"$20 Per Gallon", the auto industry won't come back. Immigration will keep pouring more and more uneducated third world immigrants from the Middle East into Detroit, thus creating a beachhead for Islamic hegemony in America. If 50 percent illiteracy continues, we will see more home-grown terrorists
    spawned out of the Muslim ghettos of Detroit. Illiteracy plus Islam equals walking human bombs.
    [​IMG]
    You have already seen it in Madrid, Spain, London, England, and Paris, France with train bombings, subway bombings and riots. As their numbers grow, so will their power to enact their barbaric Sharia Law that negates republican forms of government, first amendment rights, and subjugates
    women to the lowest rungs on the human ladder. We will see more honor killings by upset husbands, fathers and brothers that demand subjugation by their daughters, sisters and wives. Muslims prefer beheadings of women to scare the hell out of any other members of their sect from straying.
    Multiculturalism: what a perfect method to kill our language, culture, country and way of life.
    [​IMG]
    I PRAY EVERYONE WHO READS THIS REALIZES THAT IF WE DON'T STAND UP AND SCREAM AT WASHINGTON , AND OUR STATE, CITY AND LOCAL LEADERS, THIS IS WHAT AWAITS THE REST OF AMERICA .
    IF YOU THINK MEXICANS AND MUSLIMS AND OTHER FOREIGNERS WILL EVENTUALLY FIT RIGHT IN THEN YOU ARE AS BIG A PART OF THE PROBLEM AS THEY ARE.

    IF YOU THINK THIS IS JUST A BUNCH OF HOOEY AND YOU FEEL NO DUTY TO TAKE A STAND FOR THIS COUNTRY, THEN I'M SORRY, I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT WILL TAKE FOR YOU TO STAND AND FIGHT ?

    [​IMG]
    "IF YOU WANT TO SAVE ALL OF AMERICA FROM THIS KIND OF CARNAGE, PLEASE PASS THIS ALONG AND VOTE TO GET EVERY LIBERAL- SOCIALIST OUT OF PUBLIC OFFICE FOR GOOD"
    IF NOT, JUST DELETE IT.....IT'S THAT SIMPLE

    Technically they (vast majority of Muslim population) aren't in the city of Detroit, they are in Dearborn and surrounding communities some 10 miles out of Detroit. As they become more affluent, they too get out further into the suburbs.
    Trust me, metro Detroit really isn't a paradise. It doesn't matter what race, color, creed you are. They all have the same odds when they cross 8 Mile Road or the Southfield Expressway going into the big city.

    But if you are running 20" chromes or spinners your odds increase of getting Jacked and Whacked.

    Just as a footnote, Frosty is well kind of frosty. He definitely espouses eugenics and population control. One might do well to take him with a grain of salt with what he says. Just my 2 copper clads worth.

    I'd love to shout from the rooftops of Detroit and Dearborn "Hey, ya'll! Tell me something! How's that Hope and Change working for ya???" And then record the answers. Also, I'd love to ask the same question to all those folks who have fled Detroit and Dearborn...and again record the answers. Then, I'd publish them on every website I could.

    Having seen the bomb-blasted, bullet-pocked buildings and streets of sunny Beirut back in the early 80's, it seems the muslims are simply remaking Detroit (and soon other cities) into what they are familiar with. Squalid devastation..... ah, it's Old Home Week!!

    Good Lord ... I'm not sure why it took me so long to recognize it, but the fact that there is a terrorist factory (dearborn) in such close proximity to me, just hit home.

    I knew that there was a large Muslim population there, but I thought it was generally a more affluent one. I never really thought about it becoming ghetto-fied and the results of that.

    How can people (ME!) be so blind?

    This is not going to sit well. Thanks for posting the article.

    Metro Detroit... Come here from the Middle East, we'll give you a party store. Then you give it to your cousin.. That's how it's been for decades or at least as long as I can remember. Although I'm only 40..
    When we were kids in the 70's we used to joke about the the party store owners being terrorist sleeper cells.

    I was just down in Farmington, Southfield, Dearborn, Dearborn Heights, Inkster, Westland, Livonia and Detroit last night.

    I feel safer in Dearborn with all the Scary Terrorists than i do say 2 miles down the road with the scary crack heads and drug dealers.

    Just remember that an [AH] is still and [AH] no matter their creed.

    And I'll bet that Afgahnis and Iraqis think that they have been invaded by terrorists. I guess it's just a matter of the situation.

    Seriously, How many Citizens of these United States of Amerika have been killed by a terrorist with religious bent or political motivated agenda, on our soil since 2000.

    3000 in twin towers
    5 in Anthrax attacks on senators
    2 in Knoxville church shotgun attack
    1 late term abortion doctor in kansas
    2 at the Holocaust Museum (guard and shooter)
    13 at fort hood
    2 when the guy pissed at the IRS flew his plane into their building.

    Ok, so 3025 people in 12 years more or less. Hell, lets throw in the OKC bombing of the federal building. another 168. and Round up to 3200.

    That is 3200 people dead in 12 years (if you skip the years that OKC happened before Y2K).

    Did you know that in 2010 the CDC reported that nearly 35000 people killed themselves?
    That is 11x greater and it's only 1 year?

    That same year 68k died due to complications of Diabetes.

    So which are you more afraid of, Terrorists or Offing yourself or that big pan of brownies?

    A rational person would be more worried about those brownies.

    The Terrorist behind every bush is to keep you afraid and for the TPTB to control you. Gain control of your life, your mind and your future by taking action on things that you can control and not wasting your energies and waking hours thinking about the 'Boogie Man' that staticstically will not come visiting you in a hundred lifetimes.

    NASA spent less than 1.2 billion to use a crane to land a rover on the surface of Mars.
    The TSA spent 6.8 billion to keep shampoo off commercial airlines because of the 'boogie man'.

    Completely irrational fear and a waste of tax payer dollars.

    ok, I'm getting off my soapbox.

    Good perspective, Visu. Terrorism should be kept in check with relation to scale of other causes of murders and civil liberties. Pretty hard to protect against every threat and to try is hugely expensive and intrusive.

    Places like Detroit are just harbingers of where our country is headed. There us a reason anyone with the means got the heck out of there.

    Detroit should host "Urban Survival Treks." You get a knife and a bag of weed and have to make it across town alive.
