    DETROIT — Welcome to Landlord Nation, where foreclosure notices are plentiful and for-sale signs offer at least 1,800 homes for under $10,000 that once were worth at least 10 times more.

    In extreme cases, homes are on sale for $1 or less, which has enticed investors to Detroit from as far away as the United Kingdom and Australia.

    "In the past few months, I've picked up 10 new clients from out of state that are buying in bulk," said Mike Shannon, a suburban Detroit real estate agent. His office specializes in foreclosures in a city that's among the national leaders.

    "They're coming to us, saying 'Look, I want to buy 50, 100, 1,000.' They want to own every decent and cheap house they can find."
    There are folks who want payment for injustices done to blacks 2 and 3 centuries ago. ACORN feels they're justified in breaking into and claiming homes that have been foreclosed on.

    Am I crazy in wondering if at some point in the near future someone is going to claim that poor people have been wrongly cheated out of the homes they didn't pay for in the first place? Worked in Zimbabwe, right?

    Detroit is a rotting carcass. It should be abandoned and leveled and all it's population relocated to . . . . Connecticut. :)
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    It's easy to say that when you don't have people you know and love there.

    Don't be an ass. We need to send them to some elitist left wing enclave. Somewhere where the cream of the democratic circles reside and live high dictating to the plebes. DUH! That does not discribe Pittsburgh in any way shape or form. :p

    Yers but the democrats in PA are the stupid labor union types. Not the elitist snop types. I guess we could relocate all the resident of Detroit to Seattle :) Does that suit your sense of justice better?
