Starting at 1:55. Now Downtown Detroit is getting lumped in with Juarez.

by people who've never visited either place....

But it's kinda odd that O 'Reilly is criticizing a place with no social safety net, less regulation, pro-fetus laws and no overpaid union workers...

Technically, O'Reilly didn't make the initial comparison, his guest did.
The big chump didn't have any issue with jumping on the bandwagon, though..

As a Mexican part-time resident, I can assure you we have tons of regulaton; probably moreso than the U.S.

The difference is that Mexico has a completely ineffectual state, so people can basically do what they please because the state has no capacity to enforce its many ridiculous and contradictory regulations.

Oh, and neither Mexico nor Detroit are all that dangerous to outsiders, as long as you don't associate with criminals.

One of my favorite things about living in Detroit is that rich douchebags like O'Reilly steer clear of it. Imagine sitting a table over from him at a restaurant or something. Ugh. I'd rather get shot.

"so people can basically do what they please because the state has no capacity to enforce its many ridiculous and contradictory regulations"

right...complete lack of enforcement might as well be no regulation...and of course, add in the fact that underpaid civil servants can be influenced with "free market" solutions, i.e. mordidas...

O'Reilly is an idiot. He is almost as much of a windbag as Rush. He never has anything relevant to say.

I wonder if Bill ever recommended to parents not to send their kids to Iraq?

I have now written three letters to the big O . If he's cool he will respond. I also suggested that he look at DetroitYES to see what we have to say about him trashing our city.Maybe some of you are old enough to remember back in the 70s when Ti Wa Chang was fired from channel 2 ,and came back to Detroit and trashed on CNN.
