SECOND POST – JUNE 14, 2012 – WE AT SYRPER TAKE PRIDE IN BEING FROM MICHIGAN WITH TWO CITIES THAT MADE IT TO THE TOP FIVE!!!
Detroit at sunset when all the statistics begin to rise. Soon the Morlocks will appear.
Yes, no matter what people may say or what screenwriters may spew as venom, our Detroit is exceptional.
According to the Wall Street something-or-another, Detroit and Flint are now the fourth and fifth most dangerous cities in America!! No other state can match these numbers. We have two top five cities in the homicide and violent crime categories.
Flint, arguably one of the Western World’s most depraved and bedlam-fueled cities, holds numerous records: Number One in Massage Parlours; Number One in over-filled jails; Number One in advanced cholera. And we just heard that the population in Flint is not satisfied with that but, instead, is vying ferociously for the title of “STD CAPITAL OF THE USA”. Good luck from SyrPer in your quest for excellence.
God help you indeed. We’re afraid that such emotions, while sincere and well-motivated, will lead the city nowhere as it sinks into Sodom-and-Gomorrah status.
When Michiganders are taunted by East Coast snobs or West Coast loonies or Southern Trash or Bible Belt Airheads or Appalachian Hillbillies or Rocky Mountain Oafs or Dust Belt Oakies, or anyone who claims superiority: let them know this! We are number four and five in MURDER! And that’s gotta count for something.
This scene from Flint’s Saginaw Street almost exudes “Olde Americana” and the Golden Eisenhower Years. In truth, the red brick building in the foreground hides 200 rotting cadavers of homeless people murdered in order to provide “involuntary” donor organs. Inept and ineffective leadership led to a breakdown in refrigeration and subsequent decrepitude. Lawsuits are mounting.
