You idiot, that's like saying all of North Las Vegas is (also) the ghetto.

There are some bad parts sure, but don't go out and say all of 89142 is the ghetto.

First, calling other posters idiots is against the TOS and rude. Second, most of North Las Vegas IS ghetto and not the good area of the metro. Just because there are nice parts of ghetto areas doesn’t make them great areas overall. Some people here I’ve noticed seem to want to pretend there are no ghetto or bad areas of the city and will throw out such loose refrains as “well bad stuff could happen anywhere, really.” There are a LOT of ghetto areas of Las Vegas compared to many cities, and it’s important people be aware of that.

Know someone who lives out there who said one of the best days of his life was when the house next door sold from a troublesome Mexican family to a white Mormon one.

You know, you think you know a lot but you don’t. Most of NLV is not ghetto at all. There are a lot of decent livable areas. Not everyone has daddy’s money to spend like you do. You’re young, bought a stupidly expensive house and are asking for disaster. Wait till your so called business hits rough times.

Sorry, but someone had to say it. And stop giving advice on where to live and other Las Vegas insights until you’ve lived here at least a week.

Best day of my life was when the realtor living next door was evicted.

He’s a Liberal so he gets triggered easily and doesn’t like to accept facts on what the truth is.

Liberal/conservative. Triggering is less your political leaning and more personal attitude. I've got conservative friends I can send screaming into the street with one sentence.

Conservatives are actually factual thus Liberals are more emotional when it comes to debating.

Actually most of the obviously absurd stuff on this site and many others come from the conservative side.

I lean conservative and I'll agree with that.

People on both sides get emotional but liberals get triggered.

Republican: "I voted Trump"
Democrat: "What? WHY? Trump voters are stupid! He makes people poor"

Conservatives will also say Hilary Clinton supporters are stupid but are less triggered. If you say you you voted for Clinton, most conservatives will just shrug their shoulders and explain why they don't support Clinton. Liberals on the other hand will get defensive and say how Trump is racist because of what they heard on TV or read online.

There are grey areas where facts get kinda subjective depending on how you view it.

I personally don't care much lol. I wish both political parties would either disappear or sit in one room together and sort out their differences.
