Congressman Cummings BTW, is a disgrace,
He just happens to be black.
Congresswoman Pelosi (whose Congressional district in San Francisco is also filthy with human feces and used hypodermic needles) is also a disgrace.
She just happens to be white.
But, both are leftist, elitist Progressives with an agenda to push that deceives and exploits American citizens whether black or white for the sake of achieving goals to fundamentally transform the USA Progressive-style, aka Obama-style.
They do it so they can control.
Nah, they also have the Nazi card...and play it they did.
Nope. But then I'm reasonably certain it didn't happen on a daily basis and that all who voted for him weren't also called Nazis.
That reminds me...now that I've got my hat, I'll have to dig out the rest of my things and take the picture I promised Flrdsgns.
This is painfully obvious. I tried to find something that Cummings did for his district but so far I'm not finding much.
And you won't no matter how long, how far, or how wide you look.
So glad Trump at least exposes this kind of Congressional injustice by taxpayer-funded lazy-ass legislators using politics as a career.
This clip is from June, 2016, when Obama was still president. The people in it must be terrible racists for mentioning the rats in Baltimore, which neither Obama nor Cummings did squat about.
I learned in PolSci 101 that calling attention to squalid conditions in a district represented by a liberal/progressive Democrat is racist, sexist, homophobic, Islamophobic, or perhaps all of the above.
Pointing out a problem is one thing. Doing something about it is quite another.
What's your solution to fix the problems in Baltimore?
Maybe begin by doing an extensive audit on specifically how and where the BILLIONS of dollars it has received has been used with little to no improvement to be visibly existent.
That in and of itself won't improve anything as a stand alone action, but it will be a great starting point.
Opportunity zones the include demolition, construction, and waste removal.
then check into the bank accounts of every mayor and council members for the last 50 years. Investigate where all the taxpayer money has gone to.
These are the top ten poorest states. The common denominators are that they're all red states and, with the exception of New Mexico, they are all in the south. Maryland, although clearly not Cummings' district, is the richest state.
The 10 Poorest States In America For 2019
2. New Mexico
5. West Virginia
7. South Carolina
10. North Carolina
The states with asterisks are also the states that are most dependent on the government for assistance. rounding out the top 10 are Arizona, Montana and Indiana. Note their correlation to the south and their political leaning.
Got any pics of human feces in the streets, used needles, homeless living in tents on the streets for MILES, rat infestations, etc.?
So, are the poor, homeless in San Francisco poorer than the poorest in Alabama?
I'd be willing to bet there isn't one state in the Union that doesn't have some area of homelessness and poverty.
Of course there isn't...no even a maybe.
But, in the MASSES like those in the blue states who are surrounded by extremely-wealthy, left-leaning Progressives, governed by left-leaning Progressives?....no.
And your point is?
My point is that Baltimore is not the only poor state that needs help. Trump seems to think that only the blue states have such a problem. That is clearly not true - more of the red states are the bigger welfare states.
MD is a rich state except for Baltimore. According to Michele Malkin, it was used to pump refugees into an already poverty stricken city. Add to that the corruption and lining of the politicians and their families pockets.
Telling Cummings to clean up his own back yard before he goes off about "the children" is
what needed to be said. I'd like to see Baltimore get cleaned up but it really does look like a third world country and shame on the leaders who haven't done a darn thing to help.
What has Cummings done for the district he represents - I keep asking and so far no one has come up with anything. Pointing fingers at other states is not helpful.
Cummings was speaking about the conditions people are living in at the border. Trump calling him out on his district was disingenuous. Using your example, just because Cummings' district needs to be cleaned up doesn't mean those kids at the border should be living in those same dire conditions. As for what Cummings has done, I have no idea and since it isn't my district and I can't vote him in or out, it's rather moot.
Would you rather those kids be in the desert being assaulted or worse or in a clean, safe environment at the border? I've lived in a lot worse conditions than where those children are right now.
Cummings has taken taxpayer money since 1996 and everyone should be asking where is all the Baltimore money and what did they get in return. Your money is part of the waste going on there. Sheez!!!
I would rather their countries be safe enough for them to live in so they didn't have to walk thousands of miles to get here. I would rather those children, once here, were not separated from their parents. I would rather those children were not sleeping on a concrete floor, had enough to eat, clean clothes, the ability to bath or shower and brush their teeth. That's what I would rather. You are conflating the situation in Baltimore with the situation at the border and it's like comparing apples to oranges.
Baltimore is not a state. turnip head
No shit, Sherlock. What I meant to write was that Baltimore is not the only city in a poor state that has such a problem. But, then I would have robbed you of the opportunity to call me a name. I really do feel sorry for you. It must be hard being such a hateful, disgusting "human" being.
For some reason, not all the asterisks appeared. The other states are NM, MS, KY, WV, AL, AR, and SC.
It was cummings that conflated it when he yelled at the border situation when his is in worse shape and for a lot longer. I would rather the same things for the children as you but negligent parents and government jeopardize their situations. Then they are brought here, dumped on the border and we are expected to give them all kinds of care while many American families aren't able to take care of their own families.
When you fly, you are told to put your own oxygen mask on first so you can then help the children. IF America get sick and/or broke how will we be able to take in any more economic refugees who break the law in the first place. If your neighbor has a nicer house with a pool does that give you the right squat in their living room? Why not take care of your own house. The beef is with the leaders who live in lavish mansions while walking through neighborhoods of poverty and rats and doing NOTHING to help those people.
Again I ask, what has Cummings done for his district, so far there has been no response.
I could go further and ask what you personally done to help the less fortunate?
