More proof you spin words. If this isn't proof, what else more would you like? More toast?

Nope, I saw it and was trying to make a point with him about him always spinning what people post. I did the same to him and he got all upset. Sometimes one has to fight fire with fire to get some to understand anything and yet, he still has no understanding.
It has come to the point where you don't even realize it anymore

Talking about yourself that way shows everyone all about you but thanks for that.

BTW, I am done posting about something so trivial as this. If you wish to continue you will continue to show your lack of many things. I have better things to do with my time to argue about something as trivial as your problem of spinning.

Ah see..? can't defend yourself there right, when people are catching your nonsense? And yet you spin even more words as if I said them. Real genuine dude, real genuine.

Plainfield, NJ. The downtown area had all but died and crime soared in the 1970's-mid 1990's. However, since the late 1990's the Central Americans and Mexicans (many of them are illegal immigrants) have made downtown Plainfield a bustling place once again and crime has dropped.

Parts of Denver "Highlands" has also changed in a positive manner.

Demarcated by W 38th Ave., Zuni St., W. 32nd Ave., and Federal Blvd, the 250-acre neighborhood has always been known for its ethnic diversity since its founding in 1858. It was home to Scottish, German, Italian and English immigrants during the early 19th century, and has more recently been given life by its Spanish-speaking population. Remnants of Highland's motley history are apparent in the Scottish and Spanish street names, and historic landmarks like the mission-style St. Patrick's Cathedral

Denver CO Neighborhoods : Highlands

There are always two sides to every story. I try to seek both sides to take an informed position but unfortunately posters feed off of each other's doom and gloom. Is it perception or is it reality that they focus on one will really never know as opinions seem to be more valued than facts or credible research. Reading many of the posts in here is becoming an entertaining pass time but more often than not borders on monotony.

Highland is currently undergoing a housing revival with the construction of a number of new houses, condos and rentals in a variety of architectural styles. Its six recreational parks with youth baseball diamonds, basketball courts, flower beds and picnic benches complement the area small neighborhood ambiance.

The commercial district along 32nd and 29th Streets, is lined with trendy boutiques, like Swank and and Mona Lucero; martini bars, Forest Room 5 and The Coral Room; Americana restaurants, Duo and Bang!; and salons such as Brows and Bliss. The Lumber Baron Inn, a bed and breakfast, is the perfect place to stay just off the main drag and offers visitors a chance absorb the richness of the neighborhood. With its growing allure for residents and businesses, Highlands is bound to blossom even more in the coming years.
Yeah, that really sounds like illegal immigrants are sprucing up the place...

Are they doing anything to damage it?
Oh, Guy, can't you just give Hispanics a chance?

I think the thing is ,most illegal immigrants are moving into neighborhoods that are ALREADY trashed.
Very convenient to blame it on them.

Isn't there already a stereotype of construction workers and blue collar workers catcalling passing women?


YouTube - Construction worker catcall

or is it actually just Mexicans?
