The radical socialist regime of Barry Obama, taking it's cue from the dramatic industrial revolutions in Russia and China, only in reverse, announced today plans to convert most of downtown Detroit into lush green fields and supplying much needed 'green jobs' to itinerant vegetable pickers.
Detroit, once noted for it's world leadership in industrial manufacturing, has fallen on hard times due to the decline of the nation's auto industry, now controlled by CEO Obama and appointed heavy handed corrupt union leaders.
Secretary of Agriculture Tom Visilak, former governor of Iowa, who pushed through an amendment for convicted felons to regain their right to vote once released from custody, and a strong proponent of Eminent Domain, will be in charge of the massive revolution taking place in Detroit.
Visilak, who as governor vetoed an Iowa vote to constrain the use of Eminent Domain by state government, only to have it overturned by his Senate, is preparing the process where the Federal Government will now condemn most of the 139 square mile area of Downtown Detroit, plowing it under for Agricultural Development and 1575 green union jobs.
Meanwhile, Obama Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said plans were in place to retrain over 35,000 welders, machinists and steel workers in the nuances of picking collards and harvesting sugar cane and corn for ethanol as part of that continuing fraud on the taxpayers.
Detroit is now a city of 1 million, down from 2 million in the 1950's. The city has been the target of Obama's recent weatherization program, detailed in an earlier spoof, where over 33,500 abandoned houses have been caulked to prevent drafts, and 91,000 vacant lots have been 'winterized.'
Andy Stern, President of the corrupt SEIU which donated $60M to the Obama campaign, said he is already organizing potential Detroit field hands to clear the properties, seed them, cultivate them, harvest the product and then market and distribute the produce. Stern already admits that 25% of his union members are illegal aliens happy to pay dues just so they have 'a yob, mon!"
Hundreds of thousands of robotic machines, highly technical manufacturing equipment and valuable patents have been sold off to China at bargain basement prices by a former Mayor of Detroit, now under house arrest for Diddling his Assistant and lying about it.
Thanks to the Obama Stimulus Payment, over 500 pieces of brand new heavy equipment has been purchased to begin clearing the land, although only about 75 D-8s and a back hoe remain, with the rest being classified as
A smiling Robert Gibbs announced this morning, "Hey...Daylight savings time is this weekend, and spring is just around the corner boys and girls. Time to get up and harrow those fields, tote that corn and make hay while the sun shines!"
The Greening of America Begins!
