Rallying the Base

-- by Dave Johnson

I'm parked outside a Starbucks using the wireless, drinking a Peet's... On the radio right now Rush Limbaugh is talking about how New Orleans is "better off," the crime rate is down, while the crime rate in Houston is up. They call it "the Katrina effect." Houston "extended the hand of friendship to thousands of Katrina refugees. And now they're getting hammered."

"Relocating government-dependent, crime-ridden neighborhoods and relocating it to another city..." In the future cities won't want to offer assistance to "a similar group of people."

Republicans are down in the polls, so blatant racism is used to remind them who they are for and who they are against.

Wow...your racism-Detecto-matic must be set to "hypersensitive"...why is it racism to point out that in large measure, the refugees from New Orleans brought their city's high crime rate with them when the moved to Houston?

Would you rather the matter not be discussed because the cold truth (Blacks commit crimes in numbers that are WAY disproportionate to their percentage of the population) makes liberals uncomfortable?

The cold truth tomaig??? What is the cold truth? Can you give me direct evidence that the Katrina refugees boosted the crime rate? No, I didn't think so. It is just your bigotry talking.
