    Actually since 1961, so almost 60 years ago, a Democrat has been Mayor for 51 years and a Republican for 8.

    LOL, that's funny. Although in the case of DT LA it's more than just litter.

    As for nicknames, they are only funny if there is a kernel of truth behind them. You will be hard pressed to find a body of posts here illustrating me crying, whining, bitching, moaning, complaining.

    According to the mods, they get multitudes of complaints, whines, tattle-tales, bitching and moaning from forum participants. You know who they have virtually never gotten a complaint, moan, or whine from? Yep, that's right. Me.

    The topic of the thread is downtown Los Angeles. I visited downtown LA recently and had a pleasant time. It did not seem like a third world hell hole to me. For some reason, that seems to really bug your teabagging buddies on this thread.

    Los Angeles County has voted DEMOCRAT in every Presidential election since 1988. Los Angeles County has voted for the DEMOCRAT candidate in most of the presidential elections in the past four decades...

    Only 21.% of LA County voters are registered Republicans.

    Only 1 Republican serves an LA district in the House.

    In the California State Senate, Los Angeles County has only 3 Republican Senators out of 15 total.

    In the California State Assembly, Los Angeles County, only 2 Republicans represent the County in Sacramento.

    California has the highest GDP in the US, the 5th highest in the world, and contributes 14% to the US economy.

    What does your shithole state do, punk?

    There is nothing you can call me that would bother me. I asked you that question to see how big of a flaming liberal you are and you confirmed that you and Nancy Pelosi are cut from the same defective pattern. Thus insults from idiot liberals like you mean nothing to me.

    We have the most wealth in the country here and the highest poverty rate. The median home price is almost $550K which is double the country avg. And if you want to live in the major coastal areas where the jobs are the median number starts at $900K up to well over a million in certain places.

    Not really a sustainable model to be exported across the country. So the question is what policies that we have in Cali should be seen as a countrywide model from an economic perspective?

    Edit: there’s obviously more going on here than just high housing prices, just using that as one example

    They had a repub mayor from 1993-2001, did he do anything about the problem?

    Richard Riordan. He took over office while I was down there in school. I can’t really speak to what he did. Didn’t pay enough attention.

    Interesting. NY state has almost the same percentage of poverty as CA and FL. What did Ghouliani and Bloomberg do for NYC when they were in office for close to 20 years combined?

    Troubles in San Francisco Push Some Voters to Think Republican
    “People are starting to ask, ‘Maybe we need a Rudy Giuliani?’ ”
    https://www.nytimes.com/2018/06/06/u...francisco.html
    Abortion rights dogma can obscure human reason and harden the human heart so much that the same person who feels empathy for animal suffering can lack compassion for unborn children who experience lethal violence and excruciating pain in abortion.

    Unborn animals must be protected and safe in their nesting places........humans must not.

    To abort something is to end something which has begun.
    To abort life is to end it.

    Since that article is a year old I can tell you they aren't. London Breed won the interim Mayor's race last year and her top opponent was even more progressive than she was. She'll likely run in November with no major opposition.

    But yes we do need a Giuliani type very badly.
