While the City of the Angeles rushes to become a Third World dung heap, congrats LA… you’re there.
For just a moment put aside the fact that the Greater Los Angeles Metropolitan Area is home to 1 million illegal aliens, and that’s according to the LA Times. I’m not trying to be mean, but illegal aliens aren’t exactly well known for having their shot records up to date.
Again, for a moment put aside that a city government report entitled Los Angeles 2020 Commission – A Time For Truth, the author of the report openly states; (emphasis mine)
Los Angeles is barely treading water while the rest of the world is moving forward. We
risk falling further behind in adapting to the realities of the 21st century and becoming
a City in decline.
As the result of two decades of slow job growth and stagnant wages, 28% of working Angelenos earn poverty pay. If you add those out of work, almost 40% of our community lives in what only can be called misery. The poverty rate in Los Angeles is higher than any other major American city. Median income in Los Angeles is lower than it was in 2007.
But wait, there’s more.
Now KNBC in LA has filed a video report that points out that the biggest garbage dump within the city limits is right there in downtown Los Angeles.
Specifically, right on Ceres Avenue, which happens to have the Garment District on one end, the Produce District on the other.
As Europe learned centuries ago during the Black Death, heaps of filth bring rats, rats bring fleas, fleas bring typhus.
KNBC also noted that with the rats and fleas comes the very strong probability of outbreaks of salmonella and bubonic plague.
Just to point out that everyone is capable of being infected, the ABA Journal is publishing that Elizabeth Greenwood, one of the army of deputy attorneys for the City of Los Angeles, is suing her bureaucratic bosses for a whopping $5 million.
She claims that her recent diagnosis of typhus was caused by a flea-bite… in her office which just so happens to be located in the rat-infested LA city hall.
If you’re curious, city hall is just a few blocks away from the ad hoc garbage dump in question on Ceres Avenue.
