    Re: Which City is America's Worst

    I've been or lived in every city on the list but Memphis--and Camden, NJ. I've never had any issues in any of them but I can say that I like Chicago the least. I know there are nice areas and have seen some of them, but I just had the worst vibe there. The bad areas felt like post-war zones for 50+ years without much spark. While I haven't been to Detroit recently, I liked Greektown and being near Windsor which was a very clean city.

    No doubt the older the city, the more run down the areas tended to be. There are bad areas of Miami but they haven't been bad for very long and hurricanes have a way of helping clean things up a bit. I didn't mind Cleveland, except it was July and cold.

    Doesn't matter who's in charge either. The middle class is getting whipped from both sides.

    This is true. Neither the Dems nor the Reps give a damn about the middle class. All they care about is their own power.

    But if the topic is specifically Detroit there is no legitimate argument that Republicans mismanaged the city because pretty much everybody in the Detorit municipal government has been a Democrats for a very, very long time. That's a fact.

    We could also discuss how both the unions and management ran GM into the ground if we're talking about Detroit.

    I don't care what anyone says about GM either. It is in no way a success story. It was a political favor to the unions. GM is still making some of the crappiest cars in the world and no serious analysts in the auto industry sees them competing in the long run with the likes of Honda or Toyota.

    They should have let GM go bankrupt.

    Give up on our fellow Americans?

    HOW about giving up on a failed company and a failed city?

    Why should someone who lives in Florida or New Jersey or South Carolina or any other state be forced to pay for the bad actions of MIchigan, Detroit, GM and the UAW?

    I'll say it again FU** THEM!

The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers

    Yeah - a F those damn Hawaiians in 1941 too. Why should the rest of the nation help them when they are too weak to fight for themselves.

    What about all the money we send to foreign nations? I don't know about you but I would rather help any one of those cities listed above. They are OURS.

    There is a difference bawteen something like a natural disaster or an attack and a city running itself into the ground.

    I guess every deadbeat that or group of deadbeats that can't make the right decisions deserves to have others bail them out through right?

    When were you appointed to God-like status and given the power to make these subtle determinations as to who shall prosper and who shall wither?
