Obama Promises To Stop America's Sh-tty Jobs From Going Overseas. Detroit: Homicide Down, No One Left to Kill



March 03, 2009 – Comments (10) | RELATED TICKERS: AOBC , RGR , LVS

In an appeal to working class voters, Barack Obama claimed his economic plan would save millions of backbreaking, mind-numbing sh-tty jobs.

Obama Promises To Stop America's Shitty Jobs From Going Overseas

Detroit will benefit from Obama's plan. 

Meanwhile: Detroit, Median Home Price $7,500.0, Homicide Down, No One Left to Kill

DETROIT - It may be tough to get financing for a new car these days, but in Detroit you can buy a house with a credit card. 

The median price of a home sold in Detroit in December was $7,500, according to Realcomp, a listing service.

Not $75,000. Remove a zero-it's seven thousand five hundred dollars, substantially less than the lowest-price car on the new-car market.

Among the many dispiriting numbers that bleakly depict the decrepitude of this onetime industrial behemoth, the steep slide of housing values helps define the daunting challenge to anyone who wants to lead this shrinking, poverty-pocked city of about 800,000 people. 

FYI - Las Vegas your the next Detroit. Houses and cars will be priced about the same. Houses will likely sell for free. I am still long SWHC and RGR, you will undestand why eventually.

I gave you a rec because I laffed out loud.  Detroit is wrecked, but I actually have looked for some properties to redevelop there last week.  Obama's plan is far reaching and actually creates a lot of $40-$100k jobs in a number of industries which will require some continuing education, so those willing to crack a book and sit in some workshops and classes will do well.  Those who won't, same old story, they get the crap jobs and hopefully that keeps them from becoming criminals.

Bush: 'Our Long National Nightmare Of Peace And Prosperity Is Finally Over'

January 17, 2001 | Issue 37•01

WASHINGTON, DC–Mere days from assuming the presidency and closing the door on eight years of Bill Clinton, president-elect George W. Bush assured the nation in a televised address Tuesday that "our long national nightmare of peace and prosperity is finally over."

Enlarge Image

President-elect Bush vows that "together, we can put the triumphs of the recent past behind us."

"My fellow Americans," Bush said, "at long last, we have reached the end of the dark period in American history that will come to be known as the Clinton Era, eight long years characterized by unprecedented economic expansion, a sharp decrease in crime, and sustained peace overseas. The time has come to put all of that behind us."

You're making money in a bear market, and you're at the top of 65,000 other investors in CAPS.  Why get upset at a couple of grammatical errors on a huge public blog?  Chill out, bask in the glow of victory, and be happy!

well this would be good if Obama can do it. by doing this he can help the auto industry. The creation of car parts such as valves, Camshaft Position Sensor, hood, etc. in US would open job oppurtunies for americans.
