    Does Orion factor in abandon drug houses as stops?

    If Detroit has all this empty housing & needs more residents the most honorable solution would be to mandate that any new immigrants created under obuma's EO decree be required to move there .
    Let them experience the true hardships that many past generations of immigrants overcame .

    I wonder if the pension is invested in Detroit bonds?

    That is rumored to be the plan. Let the new non illegals have all the foreclosed houses for free.

    His primary residence remains in suburban Detroit. A quick Google search yields the exact address, and that his wife was actively involved in the community but less so recently (I assume age).

    Detroit has enough abandoned houses to fill the city of San Francisco. Just a fact, that's all...

    the regulations on coal and the mining industry has greatly effected my area.our volume has dropped and with ups increasing our stops per car,and the increase in surepost.we have cut out 2 runs in a 10 car center.our local towns look abandoned and merchants are struggling also.this is a predominate democratic area that supported obama and the dream has backfired.

    Dealing drugs is "harder" and more dangerous than what you do. Self-employment is still employment.
