"Dozens of American cities throughout the industrial Great Lakes states and Midwest have lost half of their populations over the course of one generation -- places like Cleveland, Youngstown, Detroit, Warren, Buffalo and Flint. This is the first time that so many cities have lost half of their populations in such a short amount of time since the Plague struck Europe in 1348........."

I would say that liberalism is more like a plague of locust than a disease. Diseases either are overcome or they kill the host.

Plagues consume what they can and then move on to their next target.

Is there a political equivalent of DDT? When I was a boy, my Dad used DDT generously on the farm. Insect infestations were unknown, our chickens laid eggs with normal shell thickness and the sweet corn we grew fetched a premium because it was pest free. I could never see the downside to DDT.

“It’s like having diabetes or lupus.”

Yes, it is a disease.

The writer assumes that the government should control where people live. Don’t individuals decide that? Do we really want to change that?

My comment on global warming is a joke of course. But there is more to this infestation we don’t understand. How did it spread so quickly at jet speed at an alarming rate?

A lot of it was war, and the refugees they generate.  Trade had a lot to do with the quick spread of disease too.  

When the day comes that some really deadly disease with a long enough incubation period to allow sources to be masked at least for a while, the thing that will kill the most people, will be airplanes, because they make the world so much smaller than it used to be.

our mayor shouldn’t be shown with the others

Warren was mentioned in the article, so I put his picture up.

Can’t bring facts into that discussion. I’m looking into breeding unicorns so they can pull the plows and the droppings will raise super large tomatoes.

Pulling plows, eating grass and crapping out gold would be better than large tomato’s.:O)

Where's Warren?

In Ohio, southeast of Cleveland and north of Youngstown. I grew up there. I go back for high school class reunions. It's appalling what has happened to my old home town.

I once had a summer job at Republic Steel, in Warren, between years at college. I quickly understood the union mentality and what it was doing to productivity at the plant. I'm not surprised that the whole plant is now sitting there abandoned and rusting.

Unions, taxes, and regulations killed the Rust Belt. The only solution to some of those cities is to pile dirt on them and start over with a population willing to work.

How could a city with no Republicans be screwed by Republicans?

The tough part for me is that even if it were full of conservatives, I’d still hate big city living.

Cleveland and East Cleveland are different cities.

We agree on DDT, but I reflect on the fact our Nation erradicated many disease’s within our borders once upon a time, and now after many years of Leftist influence upon our immigration laws, and lack of enforcement of those laws, etc. we see many of those diseases returning to our society.

“How could a city with no Republicans be screwed by Republicans?”

You have to think like a liberal. If Republicans exist at any level, they’ve screwed the working man.

So, if the local politicians are all D’s, blame the R’s at the state or federal level.

Facts are pesky things, so liberals ignore them.

St. Louis was No. 4 in 1900; been losing for many years.

I worked with a person who had friends from Denmark moving to the states and her complaint was that these friends couldn’t get free health care here and couldn’t afford to buy insurance, I told her the reason they didn’t have money to pay for insurance was because Denmark taxed it all away from them and then asked her why she thought immigrants who had never paid a cent in taxes to the US should get free health care or any other benefit. No answer but a very pissed off liberal who went around the rest of the day slamming sh** around in the office. One of my best days ever.

That is so true; minority group people are so politically committed to liberalism that they don’t even know that they are the biggest victims of abortion.

Remember, Jack F. Kemp was always talking up “our Democratic friends, and I mean that sincerely, sincerely, sincerely,” a line he used to thank Algore for saying something nice about Jack.
