    Yes, the Democratic Party does not care about people - and certainly not the black people of Flint Michigan. But those people stay there and vote for those Democrats anyway. So they victimized themselves and continued to vote for self victimization. For many Democrats, nothing matters more than seeking out any way to make themselves a victim believing this gives them superior victim's rights.
    So you admit that it was Republicans that caused the lead problem in Flint.

    Glad we can agree on that.

They also are the most ignorant, suicide and self destruction people probably to ever live.

    Many things struck me about what what I call "white middle America" when I moved into it. While there certainly are many positives, it is stunning how naive, self entitled and having the perspective of spoiled brat little children who believe they were born with everyone else owning them everything - with NO appreciation for the VAST levels of freedom they have - really was stunning to me.

    I DESPISE people who endlessly throw self pity parties and desperately search for anything to sob and whine about, incessantly claiming life is UNFAIR to them - when 98% of Americans lives are VASTLY better than 99% of humans who have ever lived.

    You don't like it here? GET OUT. LEAVE. Go be a beggar in some other country. If you life is too miserable that you can no longer tolerate it? Ruin or end your own life without bother the rest of us with your perpetual malcontent depression.
    And when are you moving out of it?

We're in the age of hyper-speed internet connections, space forces, venture capitalists and financial services. Where does that leave the average worker? The automobile industry is weak dragging down supply chains such as steel, glass and electronics. The agriculture sector is weak due to the tariffs.

    So what's strong, what is booming? Industries like Amazon, Google, pharmaceuticals, banks, investment funds, and insurance companies. How do any of those sectors of a booming economy help the average uneducated blue collar worker? They don't. I don't know where this is all heading but I don't see a good economic future for the majority of American workers.
    I agree with you

    They've been saying this for the last 200 years. I suppose one day they'll be right, but that day is at least a thousand years off.
    When the temple will be fallen, it will happen over everybody heads. Americans or European, it doesn't matter.

    That is not true. Republicans isn't any better than Democrats in caring for the ordinary people.

    No, Gov Snyder, a republican, usurped local dems with "emergency managers".

    Apparently, you are not paying attention.

    I agree with you
