Thanks Opie. Detroit is the blueprint of the Obama administration for the entire country.

The whole town in poverty, dependent upon government for the basic necessities of life..... and Obama got 98% of the vote there.

Ironic that the groups Obama claims to help, blacks and poor whites, and have done the WORST under the Obama administration. And they are too friggin STUPID to see the problem.

1) Stay in school.

2) Stay out of trouble with the law.

3) Don't have children until you are married and don't get married until you are in a stable, loving relationship with both parties working decent jobs.

4) As much as possible, stay out of debt.

5) Don't do d r u g s or overuse alcohol.

daMoron's stupid comments never stop amazing me. A multi-generational problem is Obama's fault? Where has your knowledge been all these years? Now that you are aware, what should our government leaders do to fix it? Come on, we're waiting...

The unIntelligencer should at least print the entire story. As Paul Harvey would've said "Here is the rest of the story. Salyers' daughter, Renee Adams, 28, who grew up in the region, has two children. A jobless single mother, she relies on her live-in boyfriend's disability checks to get by. Salyers says it was tough raising her own children as it is for her daughter now, and doesn't even try to speculate what awaits her grandchildren, ages 4 and 5.

Smoking a cigarette in front of the produce stand, Adams later expresses a wish that employers will look past her conviction a few years ago for distributing prescription painkillers, so she can get a job and have money to "buy the kids everything they need."

"It's pretty hard," she said. "Once the bills are paid, we might have $10 to our name." The Huffington Post

Wvcoffee you ignorant tool, did you EVER see this kind of article just 6 years ago. GENERATIONAL Problem?

You stupi ***K!

Under BUSH BUSH BUSH we had unemployment mostly below 5%. President POTATOHEAD added $1 TRILLION of debt for a STIMULUS and we have chronic 8% unemployment!

Bush had 53 months of CONTINUOUS ECONOMIC GROWTH, unmatched by any president in the history of the USA.

DOPEY has added more debt in one TERM than any President in Hisotry and IF Obamacare actually becomes reality, there will be MORE DEBT added to the US than the TOTAL SUM of all 43 Presidents COMBINED! George Washington through GEORGE BUSH!!! WWI WWII KOREA VIETNAM IRAQ all COMBINED!

In Jan 2008 the CBO projected a budget SURPLUS by 2012. We GOT $1.3 TRILLION new DEBT!

DOPEY DOUBLED the amount of people on Foodstamps.

Anybody who says otherwise is a lying sack of excrement.

Never implemented. Better than Trickle Down. Better than austerity. Freeloaders now paying for health insurance, ok with that. Rates are going down already in several states. Income inequality at an all time high. Fortune 500 companies not paying taxes. And we can't feed the poor?

As usual, DaRat is being disagreed with right into the ground. The facts are well-known: Ronnie Ray-gun created massive deficits with defense spending, Clinton *balanced* the budget and Bush Jr. started overspending again. This is the kind of blind hatred that comes from listening to Sturmbannfuhrer Rush and the other epsilon minuses on Faux News (We report, we decide.)

Whgfeeling- The mills and some other industries killed themselves with high pay, benefits, etc. and kept "DEMANDING" more. Other countries are now catching up in these areas and ours are improving. However, with automation, computers and in some areas an under educated work force we will still have high unemployment. Plus we have a president that does nothing but talk.

FACT: Fewer percentage of Americans working today since the diasastrous Carter Administration of the late 70’s.

FACT: Food Stamps DOUBLED under Obama.

FACT: Average American income has decreased over $4,300 during FOUR years of OBAMA.

FACT: Black unemployment highest ever measured.

FACT: Longest stretch of unemployment above 7% since the data has been recorded (1948)!!!!

FACT: Slowest recovery in the history of the country, worse than Great Depression.

Do the people in the picture LOOK like they are benefiting from the high stock market with their 401K’s? Bernake and the $85 BILLION PUMP per month only benefits the RICH!

100% happened ON OBAMA’s WATCH.

As long as people can make MORE money setting on their rears, this will only get worse!!!

People will ONLY work if they are FORCED to!!

So do it!!!!

LIFETIME receipients of welfare, foodstamps, medicaid, and SSI MUST be kicked off the backs of taxpayers!!

Welfare is NOT a career!!!!

Give em 12 months of help then cut em off!!!

There are now more people living on government aide than are WORKING!!!!

This HAS to stop!!!
