Detroit re. 10.May.2009 09:17

Bad Juju

The responses, on the U-Tube page to the tour of Detroit are sad because they seem to blame the victims of this silent economic war against the American people.
What we see is the result of the deliberate de-industrialization and ruin directed by a degenerate overclass and their paid stooges placed in possitions of power by these same creatures to wage this war.
What we see is the ravages of a silent war. And the struggle for survival brought about by a perversity of power and privilage.
A people beaten and robbed by a system of criminal intent and supreme evil.
