and they’re still poor.” Charles Barkley
Truer words were never spoken and when put into a graphic, it becomes gospel. Here is a graphic for Chicago, RULED BY DEMOCRATS FOR OVER 75 YEARS. The middle class is going bye-bye. Why? In a word, Democrats. They tax and tax and tax and use OPM (Other People’s Money) to buy the votes of the lazy and stupid, who are very comfortable using welfare to sit on their asses and watch Oprag and get off of the couch to vote for the biggest promiser of freebies every couple of years.
EXCERPT: “Watch as the grey squares, which illustrate the middle class that dominated the most of the city’s neighborhoods in 1970s, quickly vanish over 40 years. The poor, represented by the orange and red colors, explode across the map. And watch what happens in the green areas representing the upper middle class and wealthy. Not surprisingly, it spreads from downtown to the north side, but not with the same ferocity as the reds and oranges. Especially in 2000, the greens-the color of money–grow much darker. It seems the rich simply got richer. In later years, the wealthy pushed the poor out of the near West Side. It appears that area bypassed the middle. The data comes from the U.S. Census.”
