Los Angeles votes for a new Mayor

Quote:

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- As Los Angeles residents head to the polls Tuesday, the two top mayoral candidates are locked in a tight battle.


For the first time since campaigning started, City Controller Wendy Greuel has taken the lead over Councilman Eric Garcetti.

The latest Eyewitness News SurveyUSA poll released Monday morning shows Greuel at 28 percent, Garcetti at 26 percent, former prosecutor Kevin James at 15 percent, Councilwoman Jan Perry at 12 percent and former tech executive Emanuel Pleitez at 9 percent. Seven percent are undecided and 3 percent of respondents planned to vote for other candidates.
Chances are this race will lead into a runoff because it is so close.

I just find it funny how one of the most liberal places on Earth is going to continue to vote Democrat on this despite the fact that they are the problem to a city that is on the verge of bankruptcy.

High debt, high smog, highways crumbling, skid row, high taxes, high cost of living, jobs leaving LA and California for areas that will give them tax breaks, criminals roaming the streets freely; how do the majority of you dumb Californians manage to sleep at night knowing that you are the ones who are just as responsible for this mess?

Enjoy seeing a city and a state that will never recover by the stupid radical left you continue to vote into office. I feel bad for the those who do have a brain in that state which is rare. If only the state had more people like those you find in Danville, the OC, Coronado , etc etc.

Predictable post, but not as entertaining as I was hoping for.

I think our senses of humor are developing an AP tolerance.

WATTS, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A poll worker was shot in front of a school in Watts Tuesday in what police are calling a domestic issue.

...

A 35-year-old man suffered non-life-threatening injuries. Police say it was a domestic violence incident between the victim and a woman, who was not in custody.
Only in LA.

Dealing with dust storms(which doesn't happen all that often in AZ) > dealing with earthquakes

Any smog we get in AZ is at joke levels and doesn't compare to that in the LA Area. Plus our homes are commonly made with stucco.

You're right but I do admit that LA and California is really the whipping boy of many and rightfully so.

Francesa 03-05-2013 07:09 PM

Dust storms happen frequently in Phoenix. Don't lie to me

Ditto. Arizona scares me enough that the Federal government should invade it. Whack jobs live in that state.

That is ****ed up! I don't care about the race, color, sex, sex preference, etc of who a politican is; I care about if they are able to perform the job or not.

Glad a troll just got trolled. Mission accomplished.

10 Most Violent States In The U.S.: The Institute For Economics And Peace

We've all heard that crime doesn't pay. Peace, it turns out, just might.

The newest edition of the U.S. Peace Index, developed by the Institute for Economics and Peace, ranks states by level of peacefulness. The index is based on five primary indicators: (1) number of homicides per 100,000 people, (2) number of violent crimes per 100,000 people, (3) number of people in jail per 100,000 people, (4) number of police officers per 100,000 people and (5) general availability of small arms.

Combining these figures, the U.S. Peace Index calculates a number summarizing the overall peacefulness of each state, with low numbers being safer. Currently, the national average is 2.056.

Since 1995, the U.S. has become 8 percent safe, according to the index. Not all states have improved, though. New York's become 32.3 percent safer since 1991, but other states have actually become more dangerous, like North Dakota (47.7 percent more dangerous) and Tennessee (9.3 percent more dangerous). Generally, Southern states tended to be the least safe, with the region scoring 3.13 on the index, compared with the Northeast, calculated to be the safest region with a score of 1.99.

Reducing crime seems to have more benefits than just an increased sense of well-being, too, with the index's authors hinting that safety might have notable economic benefits. If the United States peace index was as low as Canada's (1.392 compared to 2.056), for example, the U.S. Peace Index's authors argue that state governments could save up to $89 billion in incarceration, medical, judicial and policing costs. Add to that an increase in nationwide productivity equivalent to a $272 billion stimulus, as well as 2.7 million newly-created jobs, and it starts to become pretty clear: peace pays.

Indicators are weighted, allowing homicides to carry the greatest significance, while availability of firearms carries the least. The index also groups into four categories an additional 37 secondary factors like high school graduation rate and median income: politics and demographics, education, health and economic conditions.

Below is the list of the 10 least peaceful states in the United States according to the Institute for Economics and Peace.

10. Maryland
9. South Carolina
8. Oklahoma
7. Arkansas
6. Texas
5. Alabama
4. Florida
3. Nevada
2. Tennessee
1. Louisiana
I don't know, seems to me that the states with more AP's per capita appear to be the least livable.

You're blaming earthquakes on the radical left?

Except you don't know anything about trolling. But you do know a thing or 2 about being sexist with the crap you wrote in the Kings Forum yesterday. Not surprising since LA is home to a bunch of phonies like yourself and transplants from such places Vancouver, Chicago, ****tsburgh, etc.
