It was the best of times, it was the worst of times ! Dare I draw this analogy from Dickens and apply it recent times ? Why not. Although I shan't attempt the obvious of comparing London and Paris, mine will be to draw comparisons to New York and Los Angeles. More directly, to their Congressional Districts, and specifically to Charles Rangle (D), and Maxine Waters (D). It is also my hope, that in doing this, I will not cause Dickens to horizontally rotate in his final resting place.
Rangle's district is home to "Harlem", a wonderful hot spot to wine, dine, and dance during the roaring 20's, but now, sadly is home to the ghetto. Where products of the welfare state, or the "New Deal" were created and are maintained. Where crime ridden streets, drugs, prostitution and abject poverty are never overshadowed by the feeble attempts at re-organization by a Congressman who cares not for his constituents and the representation they deserve, rather the acquisition of property and wealth to line his own coiffures both here and abroad. A man, who until recently, chaired the committee that writes the tax laws we must all follow, yet saw fit to not abide by those very same laws. A man who was elected to help people, breaks the very laws he himself has drafted, while those very people die in the streets of his district every day. Worse yet, he claims ignorance when faced with these allegations.
Although Los Angeles is 3000 miles to the "left" of Harlem or more specifically, South Central L.A., therein lies the district of Congresswoman Maxine Waters. herself, a race baiting poverty pimp, even if she is of the maternal gender. Like Rangle, Waters is responsible for one of, if not the most racially charged communities in the Country, housing Bloods, Crips, MS-13 gangs that are no more than animals. They harbor no compassion for human life, or respect for property or possessions. Has her career in Washington done one thing to stop the murder and mayhem that takes place in South Central everyday and night.... Absolutely Not ! Waters too , like Rangle, will face ethics charges relating to her role in the acquisition of TARP funds to bail out a bank in which her husband was a board member.
These two career politicians, elected officials, Congressional Representatives, of, by, and for the people seek not the betterment of their communities, but to maintain them. Thereby justifying their own existence. Be it not for the Ghettos they represent....The need for people like them to tout and maintain racial inequalities directly in the face of the attempted diversity of black, white, Asian and Hispanic communities, would not exist. There is no doubt in my mind that these scurges of humanity could be dealt with as well as done away with in our society, but people like Rangle, Waters along with the likes of Sharpton and Jackson under the very guise of religion and equality, only serve to delay the inevitable.
Rangle, and Waters are the reason these places continue to plaque our Country. Having them removed for reasons of ethics can only be labeled apra po !
If I may again quote Dickens; "The two stand in the fast-thinning throng of victims, but they speak as if they were alone. Eye to eye, voice to voice, hand to hand, heart to heart, these two children of the Universal Mother, else so wide apart and differing, have come together on the dark highway, to repair home together, and to rest in her bosom." ....."judiciously, show a cat milk, if you want her to thirst for it. Judiciously, show a dog his natural prey... if you wish him to bring it down.... One day."
