Gary, Indiana has turned into such a shiathole it's amazing it was a worthwhile town to begin with. The only people there can't afford to leave.

Fun fact: Gary, Indiana doubled as Chernobyl in the last Transformers movie. That's how much of a shiathole it is.

Yep.

Covered in gleaming snow, City Methodist Church Gary, Indiana was built in the 1920's to hold a congregation of 950, complete with choir and one of the largest church organ's in the state


"organ's"? REALLY?

It's about an hour and a half from where I live, and about fifteen minutes from where I work.

I avoid lt at all costs, but I did go there to see the home that Michael Jackson grew up in.

Am I the only one that gets a very specific vibe from these Daily Fail articles about the US? It's like they want to send out the message: "See! See! The world's only superpower is full of desolate rust-belt towns and teachers who sleep with their students! Their empire is crumbling, time for someone else to take their place....maybe someone who's been a dominant power before....who's navy ruled the world for a century or two....do we know anyone like that? Hmmm? Do we? *wink wink*"

Or am I up too early....or too late?

Hmm, Interesting, might be, I sorta figured that it was just one more Murdoch appendage and haven't really paid attention., and well Briton rising to the forefront, don't see it, but taking down others sells papers

the last 2 towns i lived in were like this. i often think to myself families in the 50's who owned property on main street of a nice sized town or the burg that was the county seat imagined they would always have a valuable piece of property. wrong. half the stores on main street of this small city are empty or antique shops that really are junk worthy of a yard or flea market sale. a few doors down from the county courthouse you see roped off areas where the buildings are falling down.

A little, but I get it more from RT News, which is the source of the video at the bottom of the Fail article.

This is actually relevant when speaking about Indiana - many people there dwell in caves, or even in hollowed out tree trunks like the Keebler elves. They're a simple folk, and don't need your fancy "man-made" buildings and "indoor plumbing."
 
2012-07-15 07:20:48 AM
If you read the Daily Fail, its difficult to believe that these were the people who invented this language. Pathetic.

....and, as a Midwesterner, the condition of Gary IN is old, old news.

I assume the author thinks all services are full Mass. (Methodists usually only do communion once a month)

Not like Gary, which is also Murder City.

These buildings were abandoned 40 years ago, whats the big deal now?? most of you werent born.

If every city were actually like this, we'd have a problem.

Rule of the ghetto: if it's broken, break it some more.
Gary once had the dubious honor of being listed and described in the old National Lampoon's "Don't Go There" section. Several years back, I just passed through and it looked like every third or fourth building had been torched.
 
2012-07-15 08:09:43 AM
Lived there from 1968-71... 7th and Roosevelt, a fairly decent neighborhood, but even that was well on its way down by then. Can you say "white flight"? We could. Yeah yeah, "thatsracist.jpg"... ok, how about we could say "let's move somewhere else before our house gets broken into like every other house on the block has been this year" (literally).

Grables'Daughter: I avoid lt at all costs, but I did go there to see the home that Michael Jackson grew up in.


That's probably the one positive memory I can take away from attending Horace Mann HS, 1970-71: the J5 at their radio peak, blaring from dozens of boomboxes little transistor radios everywhere. One two three baby you and me, yeah.

I get kinda the same vibe from the BBC World Service radio news... the reports from their former protectorates and territories in the grand olde British Empire. Tut-tutting about Burma, India, Sudan, Egypt... ah, but here's the final scores from the local cricket matches! Jolly good!

Everybody thank that lying ass Democrats and Republicans who swore that NAFTA didn't mean we would lose all our manufacturing jobs.

President Clinton: In a few moments, I will sign three agreements that will complete our negotiations with Mexico and Canada to create a North American Free Trade Agreement. In the coming months I will submit this pact to Congress for approval. It will be a hard fight, and I expect to be there with all of you every step of the way. We will make our case as hard and as well as we can. And though the fight will be difficult, I deeply believe we will win. And I'd like to tell you why. First of all, because NAFTA means jobs, American jobs and good-paying American jobs. If I didn't believe that, I wouldn't support this agreement.

This has got to be the most damning political lie of the last 100 years. America's destroyed industrial heartland bears witness.

However, moving all the manufacturing jobs to nations with slave labor wages and no environmental laws worth mentioning has made those who were already rich much, much richer.

Did anyone see on the news that due to the recent surge in cars here in the States that three foreign car makers are building new auto plants? In Mexico, of course.
