Vanity: 2012 Revisited - Landowners vs. City Dwellers

Posted on 11/17/2012 7:41:01 AM PST by TigerClaws

if you remember the election mapping, blues states weren't really all that blue.

It was primarily a small area in that state, or even 1-2 counties that are so highly populated that it swung the whole state blue.

50 of the highest populated counties house about 100 million people...1 out of 3 Americans live in 50 counties.

Michigan congressional districts.

Photobucket

The one northern district is kind of deceptive since the northern half is pretty sparsely populated. Unfortunately a lot of conservative folks up there were redistricted into a blue district.

Well...look at the bright side.

Maybe the Russians will nuke Philadelphia, Cincinnati and Detroit.

But then, they would never want to...that would be doing the rest of the country a favor.

No wonder property taxes keep going up. The freeloaders know where the responsible taxpayers are.

It will not be the Russians, It will be Iranian surrogates.

The way to end the liberal problem is to begin anti Islam posters and activity in Philadelphia and San Francisco. The loss of these cities to islamofanatics would be a good start to rebuilding America as originally designed.

Hopefully Al Qaeda will never find out about America's large (and very secret) Pacific Theater anti-terror HQ located in the Castro District of San Francisco.

It is in a hardened site which could only be destroyed by means of nuclear attack, but we don't want America's enemies to ever find out that striking there would deal a severe blow to our national security.

Real property owners should have the exclusive voting right.

I don’t think we have all that much to worry about. These congregated urbanites will suffer immense casualties of their own making during ANY, repeat ANY disaster - financial, societal, governmental, whatever that is sustained beyond the normal government inaction time..

They are at best 4-7 days away from the onset of realizing starvation is a real threat at any given time. When their government support structure has broken down (can anybody say Katrina or Sandy?) things will deteriorate quickly.

There was once a time when I’d have given money or provided supplies, etc. to these places when stuff like that happened. No more. I know what and who these people are. Let them fight amongst themselves. I’m just glad I don’t live near a rail line, bus line or major highway that leads out of these possible hellholes.

I’m only 70 miles from Detroit but happily off the beaten path in a small town with many other small towns creating buffers between me and Detroit.

I live in a college town. Every election there is a ballot initiative to raise my property tax for “education” purposes. Property owners are out numbered by apartment dwelling students about 4 to 1.

One day, the fortunate choice of where you now live will likely save your life....when it comes (not if), things won’t end well in these infested areas.

If I were given the choice between vaporizing Detroit and Ann Arbor, Detroiters could sleep easy.

Detroit may be a parasite but its an indifferent parasite. Ann Arbor on the other hand is an angry, self righteous, and demanding parasite. They spew a steady stream of venom at the rest of the state as they tell us how we hillbillies just aren’t smart enough to know how deserving they are of our tax dollars.

If that weren’t enough, they spend their time patting themselves on the back for having the generosity and kindness to demand that we give more money to Detroit as well.

The good news is once those 1st of the month checks aren’t worth the gas it takes to get to the bank to cash them, city Liberals will turn on each other first and burn their own cities down, while rural Conservatives can just pass the popcorn and wait it out.

I almost feel sorry for the Liberals for the horror that they will soon experience, but considering there’s no nastier and vile human being than a Liberal and no group & philosophy in history has caused the human race more misery, failure and bloodshed, they will get what they deserve. If anything considering all the evil they’ve done and continue to do they will be getting off easy.

When they are huddled all alone, hungry in the dark and the mob shows up outside, and as they are being dragged out into the street maybe, just maybe they will finally grasp what a bunch of fools they have been.
