“They dont have to work there.. that is the point... they separate out the productive districts from down town (which doesnt produce enough)... If the businesses were downtown, I am sure the major would tax them big time (he has no choice)... this would push out the business to the more tax competitive aka the new district... a further detriment the city... so yes, it is very much like Detroit..

BTW, if the 'rich white people' want to 'play' there, they already pay for the privledge by bringing in money... if they were taxed more than those who live there, they would just go / spend their money elsewhere. Who wouldnt?

Bottom line, redistribution of wealth does not work.. It never has... It never will...”

“If I were in charge, food stamps would only be redeemable at govt run facilities with generic products, no soda, candy, chips, etc.. Bare essentials: flour, sugar, bread, cheese, baby formula, a ration of meat and vegetables.....

“Ah, another "small government" conservative who has found even MORE ways to insert government into the smallest detail of our lives.”

Tyger Purr on Dec 4, 2013 at 15:11:16

“Oh goodie. Millions of new government jobs in facilities that would have to be operational at reasonable distances from every citizen no matter how rural. They would have to be staffed, supplied and maintained everywhere, even when there was little or no local need because someone might fall on hard times.
Sounds like a phenomenal waste of money. I hope I can get that contract.”
