You have to actually pull on the bootstraps for them to work.

If the city continues to deteriorate, a bunch of people are going to go straight outta Compton for greener pastures.

ftfa: Year after year, as revenues fell short, Compton kept spending more.

That is all you need to know.

What happened to Compton? He used to have cash, car, golden rings, but the cookie cookie crack took all those things.

Or so I have heard.

Dr Dre and Snoop alone could probably pay off the entire deficit for Compton.

Now see, that's just funny to me, because Gadsden, Alabama has a black neighborhood called Green Pastures.

Sad. Another city that should have been able to pull itself out of the sewer, undone by bad accounting practices. Kind of like Bell, just down the road.

I'm beginning to see a pattern here, something about spending more money than you're taking in for too long, and not having any rules about taking funding from other sources. Hm, how strange that is.

I blame the Federal Government for not figuring local taxes into the welfare programs.

That's how it goes in the City of Compton, boiiiiiiiiii.

Just a few years ago, the national media were writing about the renaissance of Compton, where new businesses including Target and Home Depot were moving in and crime rates were plummeting.

One would think a Target would have gone over well there.

Can't pay taxes when you don't have a job.

My answer: the company I work for, which is commutable from Compton, is hiring 9 people right now in an office currently of 60. Plan is to be over 100 within 12 months.

Jobs are out there. Open your eyes, as Kuato would say

Why is it we have to hire illegals to be gardeners, nannies, and busboys? What about all those able-bodied bleecks in Compton.

Government checks, that's why.

Right.

Yep, used to work out of Compton, Alameda south of the 105. Quiet in the daytime, sometimes a little unsettling after sundown. Never could get used to all the dead dogs on the streets though.

Those jobs don't pay enough where citizens can make a living. The illegals presence depresses the wages.

Drive without insurance, dawg? Go to jail omnious looking black man.
Drive without insurance, amigo? Let 'em go, he's trying to "make a living"

Live 15 to a house, my man? Quick! Beat them with your billy club.
Live 30 to a house ese? Look the other way he's just providing for his family.

There's a reason there hasn't been a Mexican Rodney King.
