What was left of the city of Detroit was dismantled and shipped to Illinois this week.
The Motor City, long beset by declines in the automotive industry and general economy, has given up the ghost as a separate city entity and will be rebuilt as a new suburb of Chicago called 'Floyd'.
The once proud Midwestern City that saw its heyday as the center of American automotive might has long languished from the onslaught of foreign cars that are smaller, more compact and reasonably priced, much like the foreigners themselves.
The whole endeavor is a slap in the face to the remaining Detroitonians. It is bad enough to see your city descend into poverty, then dismantled, but to have it rebuilt as a neighborhood of your major competitor and rival Chicago is a humiliation beyond endurance.
The city of Chicago has announced that the new addition to its mass (some call it being 'super-sized') will be used to house their undesirables, as new prison space and as a landfill.
Detroitonians are fuming.
Many former occupants had started moving away to other parts of the country until it was announced that the razed and empty land would be sold to Canada to pay off state debts. When the former inhabitants heard of this they returned in droves and set up tent colonies on the land. They were aware that becoming a Canadian means free social benefits and medical care.
What they didn't know is that Canadian officials have assembled the Canadian military on the border with the intent of having all 'foreigners' declared illegal and shipped off to their land of ethnic origin be that Europe, Africa, Latin America or anywhere else in the world.
They will then use the land to house their undesirables, as new prison space and as a landfill.
