Vote For The Crook. It Matters.
Philadelphia has re-elected John Street.
Yeah, what can you say? Philadelphia's decline under the Democratic labor union thuggery hasn't been fast enough to convince most Philadelphians of their folly.
If you went back in a time machine and told a Philadelphian that in 2003 most commerce and business would be conducted on the city's periphery, away from the high taxes, bullshit regulations, shitty schools and bad neighborhoods that Philly has to offer, he would look at you in disbelief.
But, that is Philly 2003. The city - once a great financial anchor to the region - now only serves to provide cafeteria workers to the business complexes in the suburbs.
And it is only going to get worse.
Good luck Mayor Street! Maybe you will defy the trend: maybe you will find the utopia that has so far eluded every socialist experiment in the history of the world.
I doubt it though.
