    Default Infested

    Did you know that "infested" is well known by ANYONE who has even a minimal knowledge of history as a loaded term with "racial" overtones? I didn't. Now, one of my rent properties was infested with roaches after the worst tenants I ever had moved out. That's a fact, not a racist comment. The folks who lived there were Hispanic, as have been quite a few of the folks to whom I have rented over the years. The roaches weren't there because the folks' skin was brown, they were there because this particular couple were pigs. I looked up some info on Baltimore and it does look pretty bad; high violent crime rate, high poverty, etc. Doesn't sound like a place I would particularly wish to live. Now the Pres. may have gotten his exact stats wrong (not #1 in violent crime of murder (6th, and 3rd I think)), but still a pretty bad place. Didn't find any stats on rats, but with the number of vacant and abandoned buildings I'd be surprised if there weren't some rats running around.

    I am so sick of hearing everything Pres Trump does or says being labeled racist. It is the all-purpose smear that is the response when there is no factual way to dispute a statement that holds the left up in a bad light.
    Any doctrine that weakens personal responsibility for judgment and for action helps create the attitudes that welcome and support the totalitarian state.

    The word racist is a simple word used by Liberals against anyone who disagrees with them, especially when they cannot come up with any logical arguments...

    The only people who could read the President’s tweets and find them racist are those who are incapable of reason or intentionally duplicitous in order to advance a political agenda.

    The true racist's are those who see racism under every rock and behind every tree. They are intellectually dishonest people who can't discuss a subject so they fall back on their tried and true conversation stopper, he's racist. The difference today America no longer takes their accusations as true making liberals look petty and mentally challenged.

    Also a fair description of the Democrat presidential candidates.

    The race card is the "Hail Mary pass" of politics.

    And the only play in the book for some politicians.

    Race is an emotional issue, one that is supposedly "taboo", but takes a much greater precedence than it really deserves. Each side loves to consider the other side racist. Personally, I am confident I don't know what anyone's definition of racism is beyond my own.

    FWIW, a person who claims another person hates an entire race, is a race baiter, which IMO is just as pathetic as people who believe skin tone alone makes them better than another.

    I have lived in Memphis, Kansas City, and Denver each city I was there over 10 years. Each of these cites had Democratic minority mayors and most members of the City Councils. They all had large core areas that were crime ridden, slums, rats, disease, and properties were infested by cockroach's and drug dealers and users.

    During the time I was in each of these cities, I saw the areas getting worse and each of the cities had elected officials accused of crimes against the cities, during the time I was there. Yet the voters continue to re-elect the same type of Mayors and councilmen/ women...in some cases, even if they were convicted of crimes...

    Call me what you will, but this all will never change without a major change in the voting public within the cities....It is one of the results that arise when you have a Free Market Capitalist Government...

    One of my biggest fears is that in the future, Presidential Elections we have more uninformed voters that elect people who are poorly motivated, and poorly educated, and corrupt...just like in the big cities throughout the country....then you know what we get if and when that happens....The country will look like the slum's in the cities today...
