Apartment buildings that all look like giant grey concrete prisons. Grass that never gets mowed. One green pepper in the produce section of grocery stores, that is barely edible. A population struggling to find jobs. Alcoholism that is out of control. Corrupt politicians and law enforcement. You have to take your own sheets and pillows to the hospital. Hospital beds that a prisoner wouldn't want to lay on. (filthy with stains) Old ladies trying to sell fish on the sidewalk. The list is endless.
Good post...but they don't have to go to your wife's former country, they can go to any rundown urban area in this country and see for themselves what Hope and Change has brought to the 'hood...nothing, absolutely nothing. Take a drive down MLK jr Blvd, Anytown, USA, and you will see exactly the same situation that existed when the Nobel Prize Winner took office: the same working-age young men loitering, the same teenage girls pushing baby carraiges, the same dilapidated buildings, empty store fronts, alcoholism, drug abuse, violence, crime, the same blood stains on the street. And still they think he walks on water...
