Short Memories

Henry Payne:
Penske Corporation, ArvinMeritor, Compuware Corporation, GM, Ford? These Metro Detroit firms all are major sponsors of the Detroit Opera House, which anchors the south side of Grand Circus.

“Tax the rich! Tax the rich! Tax the rich!” chanted the ’60s-throwbacks in Grand Circus. But why? Detroit’s rich are pouring millions into downtown Detroit to try to resuscitate it. Why does Occupy Detroit want to confiscate that money and send it 500 miles away to Washington, D.C.?
Assuming - just for fun! - that protesters really wanna send all the rich's money to Washington, hasn't Washington had some positive role in keeping Detroit alive? Just wondering.

Nothing good can be attributed to commie-socialism, S_McG.

Apparently it's somehow better to just bulldoze entire (mostly) abandoned neighborhoods and then use funds raised through contributions from the wealthy to restore the fucking opera house.

So c'mon, man. Why you wanna go out there and protest?

There you go with your facts and reason!

ckc (not kc) said... this context one might observe that "the Grand Circus" is a moderately injudicious, though appropriate, choice of name...

(where's that bread??)
