GOOD NEWS! The "exodus from Detroit is continuing but may be slowing" while only just "1 in 3 Detroit pregnancies ends in abortion".
Let's phrase these two totally unrelated stories in the form of Common Core math problems
1. Detroit currently has 688,701 residents. In 1950, there were 1.9 million residents. How many more apples does Pat have than Jen?
2. 1 in 3 Detroit pregnancies ends in abortion due to Mitt Romney and the rising poverty and dwindling access to affordable contraception. Randomly shade in any number of these boxes (or doodle in the margins) for full credit.
3. It is unfair that Pat has more apples than Jen. He didn't pick those! Draw a picture on how to solve the apple inequality and how best to punish Pat.
Obviously, abortion is not the reason Detroit has imploded, not does it have anything to do with the democrat monopoly over this once fair city. It has everything to do with man-made climate change, Fox News, Rush Limbaugh and George W Bush. And Obamacare is working!
