This is what I don't get. There are unemployed. There are numerous neighborhoods in need of just being cleaned up which would cost next to nothing other then the trash company coming to pick up refuge. Why not unitize the unemployed to clean up these areas. Give them something to do and get rid of urban blight. What would it cost the cities? Transportation, lunch and garbage pick-up.

Taking pride in one's neighborhood means putting some effort into upkeep. Maybe this is too simplistic but back in earlier days folks had to work for their handouts.

Very good point and suggestion. It proves that the US government does not know what is best for it's people, nor do they really care about doing what is good for them or their communites.

It is a great idea, but it will not work for 2 reasons. The first is liability. What if someone gets hurt cleaning up? The second is the union city workers. They do not want their jobs put in jeopardy.

So, through the EXCUSE of FEAR (injury) and CONTROL (unions) nothing gets done. These communites literally die and decay and the so called "leaders" who are PAID to serve and protect the people do absolutely NOTHING.

And there my friends, is the reason this is all happening.

EXACTLY ! We have neighborhood clean-ups here once every year. The councilmen supply the dumpsters and sometimes garbage bags, but hardly anyone participates. The dumpsters usually get filled up with contractor waste. :(

"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."

Almost every one of those 12 cities, if not all of them, have one thing in common.

Where are all those tax dodging job creators when you need them.

Oh yeah... they're all building factories in China.

Of course they wouldn't have been able to afford to move their entire operations to China if it hadn't been for years of federal tax incentives to keep the jobs in America.

But you dumb cocksuckers still think the tax breaks for the rich should continue.

What is the one common denominator of these cities?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1177223


You were reading my mind. We all know what the common denominator is, but...you know the drill.

It's so damn obvious who's destroying these cities. I'm telling ya, this crap needs to stop!!!

You people are fuckin' idiots.

I'm sure you'd all be there working your asses for lunch, if you were unemployed.

You want the government to provide jobs for the unemployed, you just don't want them to pay a fair wage.

Common denominator of these cities is they were manufacturing-heavy and union-heavy cities.

The big 3 automakers aren't 'really' american. Most of the tech staff are H1B1 visa holders or other. Most of the manufacturing plants reside in Mexico, Canada or in other countries due to cheaper labor and lower corporate tax. The only thing american about the big 3 are their tech. center locations.

Detroit, Flint were mostly auto. Oakland not sure of. Cleveland was steel, auto, and other. Bottom line is manufacturing which is long gone and won't come back. Labor is too expensive in the u.s. and also the corporations get taxed up near 40% on their profits. Got to agree with the republicans here...put yourself in the shoes of a business owner - why would you want the fed to take near a half of what you make and pay excessive labor costs due to union bargaining? Doesn't make sense.
