I was born and raised in Kearny, NJ,fifteen minutes from downtown Jersey City. For decades it was a city of Irish, Polish, Italian, Puerto Ricans and Cubans. Mostly hard-working,Catholic, law-abiding folks. Not much different than any other large Northeast cities 60 or 70 years ago, crime was an issue but it was relative. There were factories, shops, machine shops/tool and die industries, trucking companies, the docks. Men of the ethnic groups I mentioned, either skilled, semi-skilled or just had strong backs could find work, there were good schools, local churches, folks pretty much did ok. That was a long time ago.Totally different now. The mills and factories are gone, the docks are pretty much gone. The trucking companies are still around but most of what counts as working-age people(’’men’’) come from places like the head-chopper in the article who don’t know how to do anything but hate life, live off the rest of us and hate everything and anyone that doesn’t look they do.

“The mills and factories are gone. . .”

But we have all of the benefits of free trade!
