Here's you blaming political parties for crimes again^^^^

FYI inflation, and lack of income is what causes most theft, just an fyi...

You guys blame Democrats for crime all the time, so when I do it with republicans and I prove it it's bad?

Also, I mostly agree with you on your FYI part. One reason to increase minimum wage, worker protections and introduce medicare for all. Those would go a long way to increase income for everybody.

Inflation is happening all over the world, mostly due to covid and corporate profiteering. The feds printing money for the last two years didn't help either of course.

Back to petty insults already? Dang, we almost had an actual discussion. Well, I tried.

ME Someone, Fri, 01/14/2022 - 07:46

It is soo telling that you people never actually have anything to say at all, just petty attempts at insults. I must be really getting to you for you to be too scared to even have a proper rebuttal with me. 

But because people don't live in states; people live in cities: 

"All 16 cities with record high homicides in 2021 have Democrat mayors" https://www.independentsentinel.com/all-16-cities-with-record-high-homicides-in-2021-have-democrat-mayors/

"Dallas mayor sees crime fall as it spikes in other Dem-run cities" https://www.foxnews.com/us/dallas-texas-reduced-crime-democrat-run-cities

ME Someone, Thu, 01/20/2022 - 15:39

There are no "republican run" major cities except maybe two or three. They are all run by democrats, there is simply nothing to compare them to, that is why you compare the states as a whole.

"But because people don't live in states; people live in cities"

You don't make sense, but if you want to minimize it to suit your agenda then you go right ahead.

"Foxnews" and "independent sentinel", yeah, we know who you side with.


Fox news has stated in court that they are entertainment and not meant to be taken seriously,
