  I meant cities that have been run by democrat politicians for years.  I suspect you know that, and are just "stirring the pot".

----------

It's just not how we think of cities here. Maybe it's different where you live.

I couldn't tell you which cities have Democratic Mayors and which cities have Republican Mayors. We don't really think in those terms when it comes to cities here in Iowa.

Certainly, some rural areas tend to be more Republican.

The problem, Katie, is that you are making a distinction.

It's almost as though people blame Democrats for encouraging criminal behaviour.

Watching Trump differentiate between Democrat vs Republican states with his Covid chart was deeply disturbing.  More so was his clumsily worded statement that if the death toll would be "very low ... if you take the blue states out,"



This idea essentially holds states hostage by insinuating that they only have themselves to blame for their troubles and if they want things to get better, then they had better vote Republican.

It doesn't matter who the candidate is - could be another Roy Moore - whether they have a better plan, or even any plan.  Trump is essentially saying that if your state is blue, you're on your own.

And yes - he HAS threatened to cut funding to states with Democrat governors.

Just out of curiosity, have there been any Black Lives Matter events recently in your city?

It might be interesting to compare notes.

As for Black Lives Matter, there was a Black Lives Matter event here in Ames just couple of days ago. Here's a story about it from the Des Moines Register, along with some pictures.

This is as bad as it got in Las Vegas.  There have been several instances of violence on the Strip, but entirely unrelated to protests.  We live in a very diverse neighborhood, several miles from the Strip, and truth be told, our neighbors are just our neighbors.  I think it's pretty much that way city-wide because our "industry" attracts people from all over the world, many of whom decide to live here.  Like we did, they come to party, they explore and find a welcoming, family-friendly place to live.  So no, we have not had any riots, or beatings, etc.

I would guess that the local police have some diversity training, then, so that people from all cultures feel welcome. So why do you object to the same sensitivity from law enforcement in cities in which you do not live? Is gambling such an important source of inverse revenue, that Vegas is exceptional?

Well, the casinos don't care about the color of your skin, as long as they can skin it.
