The fruits of Democratic one party rule. What a disaster! How much anybody want to bet nothing will change?

But inequality in our country isn't a problem according to some...

Sadly, Baltimore is not alone. There are whole chunks of cities across the country that have been abandoned and left to rot by globalists/Neocon policies. These are also the same areas where the longest AND costliest war in American history has been raging the past few decades-The War on "Drugs". A complete recipe for disaster.

Those are poor neighborhoods. People who live in poverty always have worse health outcomes versus people who do not liver in poor neighborhoods. You can even see this in many rural or poor white communities in Appalachia.

In N. Korea, they live on a more healthy diet than here in the USA, Americans in general eat a lot of crappy food. I also would be willing to believe that they don't use as many drugs in N. Korea as Americans. Most communist countries require their citizens to get specific medical care for free as well, which isn't so here in the US.

I don't get why they are focusing on Baltimore. Similar comparisons can be made in various cities and towns across the country and have similar results.

We've pumped billions of tax payer dollars into these sewers and the fact that they are too incompetent, ignorant, corrupt and lazy to do anything with it is their fault. They relish wallowing in the rot and blaming others for their problems. Until people like you stop excusing them and we leave them to their own devices, nothing will get better.

I'm not surprised at all. Which is pretty sad.

"Sadly, Baltimore is not alone. There are whole chunks of cities across the country that have been abandoned and left to rot by globalists/Neocon policies." Really?Where did you come up with that?

Baltimore

Population is 68 % black



police department is 68 % black


fire department is 58% black;


school district is 86% black


school teachers are 72% black;


city council is 90% black;


Mayor is a black;


chief of police is black;


54% of population is on welfare;

and they believe the whites are


the reason they are living in poverty




Some just CAN'T face reality and want to blame others!

Bill Clinton signed NAFTA. Bill Clinton gave China Most Favored Nation status and made permanent normal trade relations with China.

Bill Clinton created that "giant sucking sound" that Ross Perot warned us about. Manufacturing jobs left this country in droves.

Bill Clinton is not a "neocon."

Your post is intellectually dishonest.

NAFTA aligns completely with Neocon policies and goals. Clinton was not a Neocon on paper but he did everything in their interests.

Sad how some would rather blame whole groups of Americans, than recognize that our manufacturing base has been wiped out and we have waged the longest and costliest war in American history where these jobs once were. I won't even get into discriminatory housing and lending policies over the decades, and the harm inflicted on those who are forced to live in these areas.
