3 words replaces all of that: Both parties suck...

And somehow that situation is systematically worse now than it was in 1960 because of a centuries long campaign of racism. You can't say you're "digging deep" when you chalk it all up to racism.

Politics- rich, powerful, snobby people telling the average person what's best for them.

You can probably find just as many examples for one as you can the other...

And that's the point. If all of the worst cities are controlled by Democrats and all of the best ones by Republicans, he would have a point.

But if all of the best AND worst cities are Democratic controlled (and that's closer to the facts), then he has no argument.

So dirty, why don't you post a list of the best economic performing cities in the country and partisan control of those cities?

Ah, okay thanks.

Now maybe dirtyhairy can provide a list of the best-performing cities economically and the partisan control of them.

Economically speaking 5 out of the top 10 are in TX, 2 in Utah, you have San Fran with all its money and urban tech and San Jose and Raleigh NC. Besides California, with all its trappings, these are all conservative governed.

Austin is conservative governed? laugh.pnglaugh.pnglaugh.png

Here's the ranking of best cities:

http://www.best-cities.org/2014/best-performing-cities-report-2014.pdf

San Francisco - Number 1. Enough said.

Austin-Round Rock-San Marcos - Strongly Democrat

Provo-Orem, UT - hard to find, but looks conservative. One for you.

San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara - San Jose is strongly Democratic, so is Santa Clara. Not conservative governed.

Raleigh-Cary, NC - Independent mayor, but was endorsed by the Democratic Party. Hardly "conservative governed"

Salt Lake City, UT - Democratic mayor, won with 64%. Not conservative governed.

Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown, TX - Democratic (and openly gay) mayor in Houston; can't find partisan breakdown of city count, but it's said to be divided. Again, hardly "conservative governed".

Fort Worth-Arlington, TX - Republican mayor in both areas, and probably Republican city council. Two for you.

Dallas-Plano-Irving, TX - Democratic Mayor in Dallas; can't find info about city council. Also not "conservative governed"

San Antonio-New Braunfels, TX - Democratic mayor.

Seattle-Bellevue-Everett, WA - It's Seattle, do I even need to look? Democratic controlled.

Denver-Aurora-Broomfield, CO - another one don't even need to look - Democratic mayor

Boulder, CO - not as liberal as San Franciso, but d***ed close.

Greeley, CO - weird government structure - can't tell either way

Nashville-Davidson-Murfreesboro-Franklin, TN - Democratic mayor, also Democratic controlled

Portland-Vancouver-Hillsboro, OR and WA - Also Democratic controlled

Fort Collins-Loveland, CO - Also Democratic controlled

So out of the top 17 performing cities, only two could be said to be "conservative governed" and one of them (Greeley, CO) is too weird of a government structure to tell.

All of the rest are either strongly or mostly Democratic controlled. GTFO.

Come on dude. Your website link rated places metro areas, while your political affiliation was done by city proper. There is no better example of this than Atlanta. Overall, it's a conservative market with conservative governance. But looking at just the city itself, you'd identify it with democrats because of the mayor.

Dallas, Denver (fairly close either way), San Antonio, Houston, Nashville.... It isn't the democratic domination you pretend it to be.

Then find data on the economic performance of the top performing city propers and post it.

I suppose the fact that the 10 poorest cities are all run by liberals and have been for some time doesn't sink in to Mr. Trout. DEMOCRAT LEADERSHIP!

Detroit, MI (1st on the poverty rate list) hasn’t elected
a Republican mayor since 1961;

Buffalo, NY (2nd) hasn’t elected one since 1954;

Cincinnati, OH (3rd)… since 1984;

Cleveland, OH (4th)… since 1989;

Miami, FL (5th) has never had a Republican Mayor;

St. Louis, MO (6th)…. since 1949;

El Paso, TX (7th) has never had a Republican Mayor;

Milwaukee, WI (8th)… since 1908;

Philadelphia, PA (9th)… since 1952;

Newark, NJ (10th)… since 1907.

the same thing over and over again and always

And there is this: BALTIMORE - The city of Baltimore received over $1.8 billion from President Obama's stimulus law, including $467.1 million to invest in education and $26.5 million for crime prevention.

  • Obama claimed last Tuesday that if the Republican-controlled Congress would implement his policies to make "massive investments in urban communities," they could "make a difference right now" in the city, currently in upheaval following the death of Freddie Gray.
  • However, a Washington Free Beacon analysis found that the Obama administration and Democratically-controlled Congress did make a "massive" investment into Baltimore, appropriating $1,831,768,487 though the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), commonly known as the stimulus.
  • According to Recovery.gov, one of Baltimore's central ZIP codes, 21201, received the most stimulus funding in the city, a total of $837,955,866. The amount included funding for 276 awards, and the website reports that the spending had created 290 jobs in the fourth quarter in 2013.

And most of the top wealthiest cities are also run by liberals. You suck at causality...and logic.

I do believe you started this thread on empirical evidence with a hack job article written by a partisan. You sir Are a partisan and your usage of derogatory verbs at the naysayers is your Tell....Tell, as is losing the argument. There is absolutely reason and causation that liberal governance is destroying productive cities and entitlements kills incentive. Detroit sir, look at the biggest liberal city of them all. Its the WORST city in the country. STATES - the liberal panacea of California is in a free fall. Major cities within on the doorstep to bankruptcy, and look at the margin of difference between the Hollywood wonks and the working Poor in LA. So, I give you Detroit as the worst city, and California with all its wealth and wonder, a state heading Down.

An article that I admitted was biased, but one that provides some good factual information. That's the difference, I sift through the bias to find the facts and empirical evidence. You copy and paste whatever pops up first on your Google search, whatever the source.

All you showed was that the poorest cities are run by Democrats. Guess what? Virtually all of the cities are run by Democrats, prosperous and poor and growing and declining alike. You don't even understand causality or basic logic enough to understand that. You cite Detroit as the worst city, but ignore that San Francisco is rated #1. Both run by liberals.

And what this thread has shown (and even conservatives have admitted) is that the notion that tax cuts pay for themselves through higher economic growth is a lie. You cut taxes, and revenue will decline in most cases. [There are some limited situations where the reverse happens, but we're not currently in those situations.]

So rant and rave all you like. I have the facts and the evidence on my side. You don't.

What type of Imperial evidence would this be? Carry permits? The police are in control? The inner city's are a dangerous place to live? And guess who runs this city? Trout, our inner cities are killing generations and the left is selling compassion, higher taxes, just as they've for 50 years, and we still have this.11201869_798434426937475_382933116307440

What this thread shows is you can tax and tax and give and give like Liberals are prone to do and nothing good comes from it. You will always have a lower, middle and upper class. Its all about decisions that people make, not how much tax money you throw at it or after spending $23 trillion on poor and welfare War, we are no better off. And by the way, I'm not ranting, that would be you Mr. trout.

So I am going to have some fun here.

Why do you think the inner city is behaving this way?

A social condition built on lies will destroy hope.

Hope

Antonyms: disbelief, distrust, doubt, fear, hate, hatred, hopelessness, fact, reality, truth, despair, discouragement, pessimism.

Rudy Guiliani's crime policies in New York turned the Big Apple from one of the safest places in the world to one of the most dangerous at an astonishingly rapid rate.

You've got that backwards. Guiliani went after the mob and the drug lords. It made all the difference in the world.

I'm gonna guess you're for corporate welfare because they made all the right decisions and got wealthy.

Corporate welfare is a real issue. Money in politics is ruining the principals between our Laws and and continued commerce. Lobbyist, many who were in politics, worked on capital hill, go into congress, senate, campaigns and BRIBE those who make the laws. This has to stop or our entire backbone of our founding principals is done for. Look at the Clinton cash scheme. Look at the cozy relationships with Donors to campaigns and even worse, brought out by the clintons, the Foreign donations and bribes. Wallstreet is bribing K street which is bribing the halls of congress and our presidents. This is a nightmare to unfold, as many policy makers on both sides are in it, and unfolding this disease for what it is, is going to take a Very single minded, pro american leader. We certainly cannot continue down this road. An example - The NFL having tax free exemption. Churches do a ton of charity work so I get that but the NFL?
