Re: 10 poorest cities in the U.S.

There is certainly more that goes into the reasons for poverty, than what political party the mayor happens to belong to.

Let's take it a step further and look at states on the whole.

Click Here


1. Mississippi $35,693 - R
2. Arkansas $37,987 - D
3. West Virginia $39,170 - D
4. Tennessee $40,034 - R
5. South Carolina $41,548 - R
6. Montana $41,587 - D
7. Kentucky $41,828 - D
8. Alabama $42,144 - R
9. North Carolina $42,337 - D
10. Louisiana $42,423 - R

Click Here Too


If the political party in charge is solely responsible for poverty, how do you explain these statistics?

Nice try though guys.

Never have so many politicians, screwed so many Americans...just to make one black person lose his job.

Re: 10 poorest cities in the U.S.

I wonder how any of these numbers play out when the cost of living is included.

Re: 10 poorest cities in the U.S.

I'm with Gandy here, democrap/republicant made no difference I can see in Detroit. It's really quite simple, U.S. industry sold out and moved elsewhere, as well as a great number of people. The ones that could afford it, moved, and left the ones that couldn't. The raping of Michigan began years ago.

It would be interesting to see where Michigan is on the list of states. It surprised me it wasn't on the bottom ten somewhere. Oh, but wait, many of the big companies that went elsewhere still have HQ's here. That isn't the complete story by any means, in my mind it just means the wealthiest and poorest are still here, and as I mentioned, the ones that could left. There still are some middleclass working man jobs here, but they're getting fewer and further between. The upper middleclass jobs that is, the lower middleclass ones are everywhere now, but in the foreseeable future, my guess is they will decline, and eventually disappear as well.
Nope no websites to go to, no charts to support any of that, just observation. Discount my post at will.
It's rather pathetic that service type jobs like McD's and mallwart are the sought after jobs.

Another nonaligned spokesperson.

Good stuff, trucks bring it!

I don't care if my thread goes off topic, it's all BS anyway!!!
