Re: LA a third world city
What part of Los Angeles did you go to?
It is a 3rd World City already. Not going to be, it is.
Not Hollywood or The Getty or Santa Monica or even a Monterey Park.
Downtown Los Angeles, the formal part of the City.
The city policy - in particular of the past 10 years or so - has
been -come on down, you're safe here. So, guess what, people from
all over the world came to LA. Yes, most from Mexico and Central
America, but, also from Asia, Europe, etc.
I was in a business not far from Olvera Street about a month ago.
We walked around after the meeting, and I was honestly a bit scared.
I was just there two years ago, and I didn't even recognize many
of the stores, shops, appearance of apartments, the congested streets
with lots of older cars, etc. Amazing. It went from bad to worse.
Gang graffiti galore.
There is a reason the budget of the city is busted. They don't have
enough tax revenue from residents, and the business that is still left
there, to fund it all. Business is moving out of LA because it can't deal
with the San Francisco style restrictions put upon it - from 'living wage'
to rent controls to health insurance to maternity leave and bilingual programs, etc.
Education level low.
English language ability low.
Desire to be an American is low.
Make cash, send it home, put the kids to work too.
Gang life increases.
Teen pregnancy increases.
Dropout rates very high.
An open border does not help the illegal immigrants,it's
a way we all create a permanent third world class.
