March 22, 2011


Reagan’s “Shining City on the Hill?” Or Obama’s Detroit? Reagan’s “Yes, We Can?” Or Obama’s “You didn’t build that“? The dynamic ingenuity and determination of free citizens? Or the leaden, deadening dictates of government bureaucracy? Two visions, two choices.

  1. […] Detroit. The images sting the mind’s eye. And now the Golden State, declared dying if not actually dead. The causes? The usual thing: an electorate. who in defiance of De Tocqueville’s solemn warning have voted themselves too much of the Treasury. Oh, there’s Silicon Valley. There’s  Hollywood. There’s the Golden Gate. There’s lots of money there, and evidence thereof in flashy cities and suburban sprawl for the millions. But they’ve voted themselves into bottomless debt and permanent servitude to themselves. Who’s gonna pay…and how…and when? […]

Not surprisingly, the narrative is that the entrepreneurs running private prisons are the new villains of the moment, not the Progressive, soul-sapping policies that create Inner City crime and keep the prisons overflowing. One points in vain to the dramatic NYC crime decrease of the Giuliani years now being systematically undone by the socialist DiBlasio. Detroit or bust!! Or rather, Detroit AND Bust! […]

  8. […] Detroit remains the shimmering showcase for what devastation Leftwing Democratic Party administrations can accomplish in just a few short years. Following this noble blueprint, other once glorious American cities such as San Francisco and De Blasio’s New York are close behind. The race is on to determine whether the proper term for such American sociological suicide should be “Detroiting” or “Californication.” The dilemma isn’t whether socialist policies are guaranteed poison-high taxes, lethal regulations and bureaucracies, powerful unions, exploding public dependency rolls -but which cancerous urban center dies first.
