    •  thats the problem (11+ / 0-)

      Too many bigoted racist white people fleeing from black people and other minorities destroying the tax base to move out into souless wastelands of waukesha, ozaukee, and washington counties destroying what country is left to create sprawls of cookie cutter subuurds filled with walmarts and more roads.

           The real parasites are the white flight suburbs. They have it all backwards.

        Those Republican suburbs that surround Milwaukee bleed it dry.  Their residents jam themselves onto the roads leading into Milwaukee where they come to work, use city and county services while they're there, and then take their paycheck back to their lily white suburban paradises again all the while whining about traffic jams in rush hour that they, themselves, create.  

        Taxpayers in Milwaukee foot the bill for the roads and services they use in their daily commute and while they're in the city.  WE pay for the snow plowing that lets them drive their gas guzzlers to their jobs in the winter.  WE pay for the police and fire protection they receive while in the city.  WE pay for the sidewalks they use.  WE pay for the public health department that makes sure that the water they drink is pure and that epidemics don't break out to infect them with disease.

        These are the same folks who just love love love how Governor Walker has stripped state funding for Milwaukee, gotten rid of residency requirements so public employees no longer have to pay taxes to support the government that pays them, and who continues to work actively to kill off Milwaukee.

        They're stupid and short sighted (typical Republicans).  When they've successfully destroyed Milwaukee, where will these moochers be working?  They killed off the city that supported the business they worked for.

        There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.
