MUST SEE! 12 Hellholes: Examples of what much of America will soon look like. Welcome to Ghost World.
"Do you want to see where this country is headed? If so, don't focus on the few areas that are still very prosperous. New York City has Wall Street, Washington D.C. has the federal government and Silicon Valley has Google and Facebook. Those are the exceptions. The reality is that most of the country has been experiencing a slow decline for a very long time and once thriving cities such as Gary, Indiana and Flint, Michigan have become absolute hellholes. They are examples of what the rest of America will look like soon."

Where I live, a mall has been torn down and strip malls are all OVER half empty, lots of homes are empty and even apartment complexes are half empty... north of Dayton OH.

South of Dayton, General Motors plant closed... well on our way to hellhole.

But you're not supposed to talk about it because Obama is making things better!

Nobody, not even Obama can fix 40 years of out-sourcing our jobs to China. Lay the blame on us. We sat back and took it. If any of you think Romney even cares to fix outsourcing, you simply deserve what you have been getting all along.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 7938040


that`s one way of looking at it.
Beyond one's own mind there is no dazzling light to come shining in from outside to wake one up. If one recognizes one's own intrinsic State as pure from the beginning and only temporarily obscured by impurities, and if one maintains the presence of this recognition without becoming distracted, then all the impurities dissolve. This is the essence of the Path-namkhai norbu.

Why is there a legend about the descent of Christ into hell? The Teacher addressed the lower strata of the astral world, saying: �Why, by cherishing earthly thoughts, bind oneself eternally to Earth?� And many revolted in spirit and rose higher.

 Quoting: Renegade (Me too)


The videos in the link are stunning. Really gives you a sense of the US economy and how it's affecting many towns and cities.

Empty businesses. Unkept homes and buildings. Crime, obviously up. Governments unable and unwilling to spend money on areas... they just let them go.

This is increasing at an alarming pace across the US.

There are several threads and articles about how cities, towns and counties are going broke, filing for bankrupcy and can't afford to pay their police, sanitation, etc.

We are really seeing the fall of society and collapse of the economy. With the drought factor and food price increase
this is all one huge mess that will quickly spiral downward into a very bad situation for everyone... even if your area is currently fine... this is a preview of things to come.

BTW... thank you so much for the PIN! I'm very glad many GLPers will get to see this article. It is EYE OPENING!

I live in Hammond, which is right next to Gary. Hammond and East Chicago, Indiana are not looking very good, either. Go to Northwestindiana.com and go to the Hammond section. There are pictures posted of Hammond, which is not too far behind Gary in deteriorating. Some of the homes pictured are in my neighborhood.
Our biggest problem here was the high property taxes, which were finally lowered this year.There now are 20,000 properties listed on the tax sale next month. 60% of the homes now are rentals,a lot of section 8, and we are getting Chicago's trash since they tore down the projects there. 6 years ago I could have got $120,000 for my home. Now, if I could get $40,000 I would be lucky.
My sister-in-law, who is on a fixed income, lives 3 blocks from me. She is walking away from her home of 14 years, this weekend. Chances are, it will sit and end up on the demo list, like most of the rest that have emptied around here.

Our lovely city closed the mall two years ago, empty warehouses and buildings. No jobs. The jobs that are available, preferential to certain people. Foreclosures everywhere, every house underwater but rent still high.
It can't go on.

The problem is... when the surrounding areas have no jobs, no income and crime rates rise... those "problems" work their way into the bigger cities and nicer areas. Much like a cancer... it spreads, quickly.

Yeah, just like Gary added the convention center and the Railcats stadium. Take a drive through the neighborhoods. Go down Indianapolis blvd, and count all the empty storefronts.Look for the pictures of the former Woodmar Mall. It has been sitting like that for years. The same for the former Kmart area. You can put lipstick on a pig, but it still is a pig.

Gary WAS nice, up until the mid 1960's. My Dad's business had several Gary accounts. I saw Gary change from a good place to live, to the hellhole it is now. It got so bad, that my Dad had to start packing heat, and even the stores started providing security guards for my Dad, when he went to the stores to repair or clean their grocery carts. It got to be too much. The thugs tried to rob my Dad several times. He had no choice but to drop the Gary accounts.

this is the result of liberal enabling and class warfare, all those years where black culture was shoved down our throats and legislation passed giving them handouts, there should be a cutoff to the handouts and they should have to get jobs. Also the drug war doesn't help either. Just failed policies and pretending the problem doesn't exist mostly.

A liberal media that is clueless to the problems that actually go on in these cities, promoting their culture and fresh and sophisticated, while the nerdy white male is frowned upon.

Yes, sad to see. We need to have a zero tolerance policy for gangs... shoot to kill !!

Also... Cleveland really is not that bad. I have lived nearby for 30 years. 15 years ago it was still rockin'! 10 years ago it was fallin fast... today... it is better looking and more prosperous and getting better every day. We have all new sports arenas (just shitty teams), the most loyal people I have met, a great lakefront, a kick ass air show every labor day, the rock n roll hall of fame, the new casino which is great for the local housing market, a beautiful new Euclid Corridor, the list goes on and on and on.

Don't just my city by its worst specimens ;-)
