More evidence that the effort to bankrupt Detroit is ideologically, rather than fiscally driven:
We're told that Detroit can't afford to take care of its employees and its residents anymore. It can't afford to take care of its cultural and artistic heritage.
It can't afford the people who live there anymore.
It can't afford public pensions.
It can't afford lazy black people.
But it can afford a new sports complex that will cost hundreds of millions of dollars -- ultimately, I speculate, over half a billion dollars when all is said and done -- that will really only provide economic benefits to the professional sports team owners and a few cronies.
What a laugh.
No schools, no roads, no utilities, no services, no pensions for Detroit.
But hockey, anyone?
