The day of reckoning looms: America the fallen: Twenty-four signs that our once proud cities are turning into poverty-stricken hellholes.

It is important to note that every single one of the cities cited in this article has been under Democratic Party rule for decades. While the decline is not entirely their fault, their tax-and-spend policies combined with a passion for heavy regulation certainly share much of the blame.

    I was speaking with a fellow JBS fan about this earlier tonight.

  • Pittsburgh, Portland, and other cities have also been under solid liberal/Democratic control for decades. Yet for some reason they have not become poverty-stricken hellholes as have Detroit, Philly, Cleveland, et al.

    What could that reason be?

    Pittsburgh and Philly ought to be similar. Same state, same taxes, same political circumstances.

    Yet there is a difference between them. Philly is a pesthole. Pittsburgh is rated one of the best cities in America in which to live.

    There must be some reason why.

    I wonder: when it comes to successful cities versus urban hellholes, what is the difference that makes all the difference?

    The people in the city of Detroit elected mayors that were screwing them royal, but that was okay because they were screwing whitey just as bad, A large part of the population left and will not return because they are not welcome there and the elected officials in detroit like it that way!

  • Which part of the population of Detroit left?

    Why did they leave?

    What happened after they were gone?

    Everybody knows the answers to these questions. But we dare not speak the answers out loud. The truth, in this case, is just too ugly.

    But ugly or not, the truth is the truth, and one can only dodge the truth for so long. Sooner or later, we each will be forced to face it.

    And until we face the ugly truth, nothing will get any better.
