‘Collapse of a city that’s lost
control’: Shocking new pictures from
downtown LA capture the huge problem
it faces with trash and rats amid fear
of typhoid fever outbreak among LAPD

Original Article

These shocking pictures from downtown Los Angeles capture the growing problem it faces with trash and rodents in a desperate city also trying to contain a typhoid fever outbreak linked to worsening sanitary conditions. A decision to not cap the total amount of property that homeless people can keep on Skid Row was announced last Wednesday and it sparked fury among some officials who say it will ‘only perpetuate the public health crisis that already exists’ there. That, coupled with the news a Los Angeles police detective has been diagnosed with typhoid fever, has sparked concern among LA’s residents.


The leftists have tolerated themselves into a corner. If it's a basic human right to live on the streets, why then are the antisocials denied their property rights? Isn't walking around their encampments and shopping carts the least we can do? The loud Hollywood leftists are OK with it; sitting atop their fortunes while telling the rest of us to do more to help.

Im sure that these pictures have been cherry picked to portray LA in the worst possible light. However, from the time that I lived there in the early 90's to today, LA is working overtime to look like a third world, to paraphrase Trump, craphole.

This is worse than San Francisco. At least what I remember of SF 10 years ago. It’s a lot cheaper to relocate all those bums to an isolated area and fence them in. They’ll have bunks, food, and medical care; cheaper than the cost of law enforcement, court costs, sanitation, lost tourism and ruined businesses. There would be no trash and hoarding allowed.

I've recently been to SF and Seattle and they're similar... once beautiful cities pockmarked by homeless camps, drug paraphernalia and heaps of trash. Even our liberal friends recognize that the leadership is making it worse for everyone.

City should put dumpsters in those areas and pay the homeless to keep their areas clean. That doesn't fix the feces/urine problem, but it would be a start. Positive reinforcement for desired behavior. Yeah, the druggies probably would spend the money on more drugs, but if the trash is picked up, who cares.

Southern California is like Humpty Dumpty, it can never be put together again. I moved out of SoCal in 1988 to Northern California and from my new perch I sadly watched the decay move in my direction. Now I feel like we live in the Alamo or the DMZ trying to protect and hold on to the culture that once made California a great state. Now NorCal is crumbling. For the most part, the entire Bay Area is undesirable due to its high costs and all the problems that come with overcrowding. The exodus and retreat from the Bay Area is rapidly coming my way and soon, I fear, most of California will be like Humpty Dumpty.

ATTENTION L.A. RESIDENTS! Got Junk? Donate your junk and trash to the homeless on Skid Row. Gather your neighbors together, get a big truck, load it up, and take it to Skid Row for the homeless. They will thank you greatly. MAYBE even share a hit with you, if you're so inclined. (Please consult your tax advisor about a charitable deduction. I don't know, but maybe Cali will allow one.)

I have said before, and I am no rocket scientist, cities, such as LA, SF, Portland, Seattle are on the verge of a new plague because of the filth being allowed to accumulate because of the pilles of filth piling up in the cities mentioned. I live in Seattle and try to avoid the most infested areas. I'm afraid it may be a losing battle with the moronic democrats, who have been in control, literally forever. God have mercy upon us.

As very young newlyweds in 1957, we moved to San Diego, California, on a lark. All we knew about the state was from the movies. It was fun, although expensive for our limited budget. After three years, however, we had enough and came back home to Texas. Thank goodness we didn't try to live the rest of our lives out there in that area. At least it was clean and livable in those years. Twenty years later, we returned on a visit and could see the deterioration. Now, it is obviously no place for a young couple raising a family.

My mom used to tell me stories of growing up in the thirties and forties in a very small town. Bums, hoboes and vagrants would climb off the train, steal everyone’s chickens, fattening pigs, clothes on the line, etc until the sheriff or someone chased them out. It wasn’t funny or to be tolerated from an excess of sympathy. They were stealing people’s food and livelihood. My how things are changed. There’s such a thing as too much sympathy and understanding.

Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines is worth $37billion (£28billion) and flies to 370 destinations on six continents with state-of-the-art aircraft. Truly, it’s a titan of aviation. But it started life as a crop-dusting outfit in 1924. And when it expanded to passenger transportation it used planes that could only hit 90mph, with the wind behind them. Delta has been on quite a journey, then—and these fascinating pictures illustrate the carrier’s dramatic transformation over the decades. They show some of its earliest passenger planes, a restored 1931 model with five passenger seats, a 1940 Douglas DC-3,

Trump said last week he would implement a 5% tariff on all goods and imports from Mexico beginning June 10 unless “the illegal migration crisis is alleviated.” The proposed tariffs, which could raise the prices consumers pay for imports including tequila, beer and avocados, could increase to 25% in the coming months. “If the tariffs become permanent, we would look to offset these costs through other margin improvement efforts already underway,”

"Crossfire Hurricane” — the melodramatic code name for the FBI/CIA spy operation on candidate Trump and his early presidency — was run for the FBI by then-FBI Director James Comey, his deputy Andrew McCabe, Special Agent Peter Strzok, and a few others.
