I look forward to the day DC and environs are as prosperous as another rat dominated metro area, Detroit.

That will be our nation’s paradox in the coming years.
The entire DC metro area is a giant economic leech sucking the lifeblood from what is left of America’s free market economy.

My dad was a Navy officer lifer and DC was his last assignment before retirement. So I spent a few years there, through high school.
Everyone sucks off the government there, or once removed. They do best when the rest of the Nation is economically suffering in a recession because politicans play the part of a child molestor perv, Uncle Sam.
Maryland “Freak State” PING!
