Detroit is the mattress bearing the stain left behind from the steamy amalgam which oozed during the incestuous drunken orgy with big business, labor and government.
Detroit, however, is not alone. Many cities in the U.S. are currently engaged in such orgies, though blinded by their own lustful addiction to bonds, taxes, regulations, and corporate cronyism taking place which will lead to predictably similar stains, smells and debts.
Both sides of the political aisle carry the venereal blisters resulting from the unnatural relationship between business, politics and unionized labor. Under the guise of improving the “middle class” which everyone seems to belong to and where there exists no “lower class,” politicians make unsustainable promises. To placate their membership, union thugs bleed the corporate stone dry at gunpoint while feasting on the golden goose. The right-wingers provide corporations the same welfare they despise when left-wingers allot it to individuals for the same dependency they claim to avert with their policies.
Let’s keep Ramona’s vision clear, and avoid hosting these repulsive gatherings as we vote for our own local and state-level officials. That deafening silence could be the haunts of our own fiscal canary, long ago dead.
