    the family -- ?) that part of the rw's strategy in remaking america into the image they want is to "bleed the cities" -- & for preciseley the reasons you state: they are havens of liberalism gone amok & where seething masses of minorities leech the govt for all they can -- at least as far as conservatives are concerned.

    that's why so many cities have been deserted by the white tax base & their infrastructures left to crumble & a disproportionate number of  the people who live in them are poor, homeless, & suffer from illnesses both physical & mental & without enuf resources to remedy the situation.

    it's ironic to me that the ones who crow the loudest about america being the greatest country in the world, cheer the decline of the most recognizable symbols of our country: cities.
