We lived just outside of Baltimore in the late eighties. It was a great place to live. The ocean was close, mountains close, downtown areas were great to visit. I still have friends up there and visit a couple of times a year. The last time we were up there, one of my buddies, who always took us downtown, said we shouldn’t go down. The lawlessness with roving bands of scooters, stealing, beating people, etc. was just too much. 

He has been working on getting a concealed carry permit (spotless record, great citizen, meets all the “criteria”, for 18 months. The latest nonsense was that he had to get permission from his boss. He appealed that by pointing out that he is his own boss. He is now waiting on that appeal, buried under others. 

The police have quit patrolling in a lot of areas, and their response time is much slower than it was. Since they were kneecapped by the grievance crowd, they just won’t take the chance of being prosecuted for doing their job. 

Too bad. But, it is where America is heading, I believe. Invalidate the police, take away the guns, steal the public’s money, and you have the ultimate conditions for a new Nazi state. 

There are still nice areas to go to. Traveling there is problematic and a lot are closing down at dusk because of the roving terrorists, according to my friend.

Yeah, city dwellers tend to be depleted with middle class folks.  Higher percentages of wealthy an poor that the suburbs or rural areas.

I do see some areas around me being gentrified, but the homes run around half a mil for 2000 sq ft.

The folks of Baltimore are pro police......It's obvious by the way these "law abiding lads" want to assist the police with their duties....Pitiful.

I enjoy butthurt liberals.  It means truth reared its head somewhere.  And I like truth.
I agree. My post obviously whooped some butt. 

Triggered a lot of whiny ass deplorables.

I'd always heard horrible things about Cleveland, "Mistake by the Lake" comes to mind.  I traveled there 3-4 times on business and found the city to be quite nice (it was in summer), again in the places I visited.  Downtown was rather sterile as I recall.  There were some brownfield areas south of downtown.

I'm not suggesting it as a vacation spot, only that most/all? cities have some nicer areas.  I have not been to Baltimore in decades.  Headed to SF and Seattle soon.

Trump targets money-grubbing Democrats shackling their voters to hellh
« Reply #20 on: July 30, 2019, 11:54:24 AM »
hellhole cities

It's about time we had a president shine a light on these race-baiting so-called civil rights icons like Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), whose "own" people live in rat-infested, feces-encrusted, gun-controlled kill zones while he and his fellow third-world thugs amass millions.  Cummings is just one in a cabal of looters whose accident of birth endowed them with a skin color that yields a high rate of return.
President Trump cornered Cummings in a series of tweets after the Baltimore slumlord staged an assault on the Department of Homeland Security secretary last week. Cummings's tirade at the congressional hearing included a froth-mouthed, false, and vicious indictment of Border Patrol agents.  Trump wasn't about to allow a corrupt, semiliterate third-world grifter to denigrate the DHS secretary and the hardworking men and women earnestly trying to guard our southern border.
POTUS proved for the umpteenth time that Democrats, aided by an irredeemable media complex, can dish it out but can't take it.  The usual and unoriginal suspects still have not figured out what happened in 2016.  The very best definition of these left-wing dolts is the clichéd definition of insanity: doing the same thing over and over, expecting different results.
Obama's former political hit man and CNN propagandist, David Axelrod, tweeted that Trump's "stream of ugly, divisive bombast" could mean Trump will lose in 2020.
Axelrod must think he's living in an inverted universe, where his favorite Alinsky tactics have been co-opted by a president who has been called "racist" so many times that he, and more importantly, his supporters, don't really give a damn anymore.

Then there's Al Sharpton, who started salivating as soon as Trump's chum hit the headlines.  Before he could open his mouth at another rigged press conference inside a Baltimore church, President Trump beat him to the punch, calling Sharpton a "con man who hates whites and cops" and who, incidentally, used to ask Trump for favors before the 2016 election.  Laughably, Sharpton said Trump has "a particular venom for blacks and people of color."
Speaker Nancy Pelosi also weighed in from Italy, where, according to reports, she is not exactly visiting the poor and downtrodden.  No, Nancy, another congressperson worth hundreds of millions while her constituents defecate, shoot up, and sleep on the streets of San Francisco, was dining at a classy Venetian restaurant as she defended Cummings, calling him "a beloved leader in Baltimore."

Joining Axelrod, Pelosi, and Sharpton in their "kill the messenger" tweets is Chicago's favorite slum lady, Valerie Jarrett, also known as "Obama's brain."
In 2008, the Boston Globe wrote an eye-opening exposé of Jarret's Grove Parc Plaza, a 504-unit Section 8 housing apartment built in 1990.  Obama represented the area as a state senator, and his de facto president for eight years, Jarrett, managed the place.  Jarrett raked in millions while her tenants lived with raw sewage, rat infestations, lack of heat, and crumbling walls.  Jarrett's Habitat Co. also managed Lawndale Restoration, another complex in West Chicago, which accrued 1,800 building violations in 2006.  No matter: She was on her way to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and Martha's Vineyard.  Presently, Jarrett is holed up with the Obamas in northwest D.C.


Decade after decade after decade, American taxpayers have redistributed their wealth to corrupt government "poverty" programs.  The city of Baltimorereceived $1.8 billion of our money under the guise of Obama's American Recovery and Reinvestment Act with little to show for it.  We have stuffed the pockets of race pimps and their hateful political benefactors as they organize mobs like Antifa and Black Lives Matter to physically attack us.

President Trump can tweet 24/7 about Baltimore and this massive looting by the Democrats of the working and middle classes' hard-earned wages, and it still will not make up for what the swamp-dwellers have done.  Quoting the Freedom Center's David Horowitz in his recent speech at the 2019 Western Conservative Summit, "God bless this country for having a president like Donald Trump."

President Harry S. Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”

Cincy, before you go to SF and Seattle, pick up a MAGA hat somewhere and proudly wear it as you see the sights in these find liberal cities......Even if you're not a fan of "the hat", do a controlled experiment for us by wearing it as you do your daily travels...You could give us a first hand evaluation for the members of Area 51.

Thanking you in advance.

Trump says Baltimore residents are praising his comments.

Is it true?  Who knows?  Who cares?  Right, media?

If Trump says it's true, it's true.  Isn't that how it works?

HAHAHAHA.  Fire with fire.  Such a great time to be a conservative.

Hey, some people are okay with being trailer trash. Good for you. 



Baltimore has it's slums, as does the entire states of Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama, Louisiana, basically the entire South is a third world country with less than half a percentage of population with enough money to sustain life.

But hey, keep owning those libs!

Using data from the “Biggest US Cities” website, Nate Silver of fivethirtyeight.com took to Twitter to point out that Cummings’s district has “above-average college education rates and home prices, along with a pretty good mix of urban and suburban areas (even some rural), and well-off, working-class and middle-class areas.”

Silver also pointed out the district is the second-wealthiest majority-black district in the country, with a $58,000 median household income, trailing Maryland’s 4th Congressional District, which includes parts of the Prince George’s and Anne Arundel counties. Cummings’ district is also the second-most-well-educated majority-black district because 37% of the residents have a bachelor’s degree or higher, trailing Georgia’s 4th District, Silver added.

Georgia's 4th is 59% black, and their Congressman is Hank "Hope it don't tip over" Johnson.

What do you mean by "less than half a percentage of population"?

That's a bit unclear, to me anyway.
