For the second, you've been arguing with two different posters who make sure to have everyone know how smart they are and have both, especially the second, unequivocally assigned Cummings to an office he doesn't hold and another one he never held.

Who is JFC?





You are correct, my apologizes to all I have stated wrong.


Me being right or wrong, does not negate the fact that millions/billions have gone into MD and what has happened? Lets also remember the current video that has surfaced about EEC, when he left, it was a drug infested place....from the 1990s......


So, lets get this right, I'm wrong on what his job was, not wrong on what is happening in that State.....do you agree?

I posted this in the other thread, but this seems to now be the main thread on Baltimore:

Quote:
What gets left out of the debate, amid the counter-charges of 'raaaacist,' is the big city machine politics that creates situations found in places like Baltimore. The system was invented by Martin Van Buren, a crafty NY political wheeler-dealer who later became the 8th president. It was fully brought to fruition by 'Boss' Tweed and Tammany Hall in the 19th century.

As with today, Tweed based his machine on ethnic politics, by harnessing the power of hordes of immigrant Irish voters. He paid them back with trinkets and crumbs, thereby putting himself and his cronies in a position to fleece the public coffers.

The system gradually spread to big cities around the US, and has obviously been ruinous. Why aren't we talking about reforms to big city political machines to make things better, instead of running around yelling 'raaaaacist?'

If you really believed what you have been saying what's the point in calling out one and not the other ?

Its clear who Cummings was insulting !!! The city of Baltimore !!! The city of Zombies !!!
Used the same language or wording "infested" !!!

What makes it OK for Cummings ?

Skin color, democrat, or both, or the fact he's failed to improve the conditions and been failing for decades but now wants protection of the race card ?
Defending Cummings is defending and ignoring the problem !!! Its racist too !!!

Cummings calling Baltimore 'drug infested,' likening residents to 'zombies'
https://www.foxnews.com/media/resurf...nts-to-zombies

This morning, I left my community of Baltimore -- a drug-infested area where a lot of the drugs we are talking about today have already taken the lives of so many children," he said. "The same children that I watched 14 or 15 years ago as they grew up, now walking around like zombies."

"Obviously racist... Right? Those are the rules!"

Cummings solution seems to be to trap them in his district and stop them from walking away !!!

Votes are valuable even if they are from, as Cummings says, ZOMBIES !!!

Democrats take a page from the past !!! The plantation masters are the democrats today and keeping people on the plantation is still the goal !!! The underground railroad is #walkaway
