Because there's nothing to discuss. Baltimore doesn't have the highest murder rate in the USA.
Perhaps we could discuss your desire to support the idiot in the Oval Office by repeating the crap he tweets about?

And for states,
Gilroy probably just made the "per capita" list. Made me realize that in countries with even moderate gun control laws such lists would be meaningless.

Well, either it has the highest murder rate or it doesn't...since none of the sites/lists I looked at mentioned Baltimore, I'm going with "doesn't".
While Baltimore is infamous for its crime, it doesn't even have the highest murder rate in Maryland.
The remarks were carefully planned and entirely deliberate and will form the basis of Trump's reelection campaign. They are designed to (hopefully) solidify the President's base in the Midwest by making the race literally about white vs. black.
He will be telling his base that the coastal liberals, establishment, and media all see them as trailer trash and this is the moment to give them a good comeuppance. The Cook Report claims that if Trump can avoid losing the popular vote by more than 4%, he could still eke out a victory in the Electoral College if he can motivate his voters in the Midwest to show up at the polls in force.
By making the election about race (including the immigration of nonwhites), along with the supposed arrogance of the Democrats and media, Trump can divert attention from the fact that he hasn't actually done a lot for his base, other than passing out a few welfare checks to farmers hurt by his tariff policies.
Look for more attacks on ethnic individuals in the future.
The Honorable Brian E. Frosh Maryland Attorney General 200 St. Paul Place
Baltimore, MD 21202
Dear Attorney General Frosh,
I respectfully request that the Maryland Attorney General’s Office investigate potential abuse and misuse of a Maryland nonprofit through its coordination with a Maryland corporation. The nonprofit Center for Global Policy Solutions (“Center”), through the for-profit Global Policy Solutions, LLC (“GPS”), appears to provide an improper financial benefit to Ms. Maya Rockeymoore Cummings and her husband, Representative Elijah Cummings. As part of your mission to protect citizens donations to legitimate nonprofit organizations, this situation requires oversight and investigation to ensure that these entities are operating in accordance with the law.
1.8 billons dollars went to the city of Baltimore and much of it to the Center for Global Policy Solutions. How much of that money came right back to DC democrats?
1. Cause a crisis.
2. Fund to stop the crisis.
3. Get that money to come back to democrats.
The Center for Global Policy Solutions (Non-profit) and the Center for Global Policy Solutions LLC (For profit) have the same mailing address and only one employee.... Ms. Maya Rockeymoore Cummings.

You could put "potential problem" in front of almost anything.
And you have the idiots on this site that think I support Trump. I don't support the idiot democrats that want socialism nor the Republican that want a religious society. We have become an nation of idiots that don't want to address the real problems. The democrats want to make us like Venezuela and the republican like Iran. We need a strong third party.
Where did the 1,800,000,000.00 go?
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.
Of this amount, $467.1 million went to education; $206.1 million to the environment; $24 million to "family"; $16.1 million to infrastructure; $15.2 million to transportation; $11.9 million to housing; and $3.1 million to job training.
Help me with my math. The population of Baltimore is 619,493 and the Feds gave them $1,800,000,000.00. I get $2905.00 per person living in Baltimore and they only created 290 new jobs? That is 1.8 billion on top of the city budget. This is what republicans and democrats did in Haiti, New Orleans, Puerto Rico and Flint Michigan. Why don't we see any changes in the areas that the government pours all this money into? Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine and Israel. The swamp is full of both sides.

I grew up in rat hole like that city and one would say your first complaint would be to police / mayor / city council and then to the congressman who was voted in. My city never got better just more corrupt and thus I moved on.
Well, Scarleg, if you were to complain about the crime rate in your city, would you think to blame your Congressman or would you look to someone who had actual jurisdiction over such things?So, congressmen should have no responsibility to the district they represent?????
One should never expect a congressmen to do anything for the district. Good to know this. Does it only apply to Democrat congressmen?
Because the accusations in the cited article have nothing to do with Trump's claim.Scarleg wrote:Donray, you are completely right on point and this is the wrong forum to discuss the real issues in this country. Trying to present an important topic with the 3 stooges who seem to have their single blame it on Trump panic button response at the ready makes this forum not worth visiting. Too bad when you try to create a conversation you either get attacked or a deflection.
