As a social scientist I do find some of these cities an odd inclusion. And why is it Cal has so many such cities? Of course New Yorkers and the Northeast never likes to admit its "crap". Have you seen some of the cities and towns in New Jersey? Have you seen some cities in Pennsylvania? Have you seen some neighborhoods in New York city? There was a picture album by an officer policing a project housing in the Bronx in the New York Times..it was a nightmare!
It is true some neighborhoods and towns in Florida have many houses for sale...but they are not "nightmare cities". "Nightmare" cities are also more than just housing foreclosures, and a whole bunch of Black people (racist pictures) standing in line. I wonder if there is an attempt by not-so-smart men to bring conservatism to poor folks or minority folks by constantly using fear and false information to tear their city down, their image down, their soul down and their diversity.
I know poor cities which are well maintained and look good...but there is gang violence and constant police presence. There are rich neighborhoods where people live in chronic fear and never leave their homes - because if they do they are followed, beaten or hit.
Rick Scott is like a Nazi who should not be complaining about anybody. These guys appeal to the lowest denominators in their communities. And even if you are an amazing social scientist they'll drag you down. There is something evil about people who pretend that low class does not exist both at the top and at the bottom in the US. Wealth alone does not define values, taste, class or thinking.
America, with all its problems is still a great nation. I have a job, a roof over my head and food in my kitchen. I've been unemployed, homeless, and hungry, but I'd rather be any of these in the U.S.A. than any other place in the world, cause at least here it was only temporary.
