Did you know?

"...of the 20 largest cities at mid-century, all but four have shrunk, some by a lot. Detroit, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, St. Louis and Buffalo, NY, have all lost more than half their population in the past half-century. Philadelphia lost nearly a third of its residents, slipping to about 1.4 million people in 2006, according to estimates being released Thursday by the Census Bureau."

"Those who can’t leave or for whom it hard to leave are the ones who are left, and so what you’re left behind with is an expanding welfare class that has trouble producing and contributing to anything — and then we wonder why inner city and city schools are in such bad shape. So while the Drive-By Media would never, ever tell the truth about this, this is what happens to places when liberals run the show. It’s pure and simple. Look at what’s happening in LA — in fact, some people are leaving whole states."

"This is from the New York Sun, and it’s a story from April 20 of 2006: ‘New York State is losing more residents than any other state in the country, based on surveys taken between 2000 and 2004. The figures show that New York has replaced California as the net migration outflow leader, an average of 182,886 people leaving every year. That’s nearly double California’s average for the same period.’"
