The only solution I can envision is an open border with Mexico and South America.
USA citizens can move south as well as the other way round!

Eventually, maybe that'll happen.

Open borders with Mexico and South America? Are you crazy?

perhaps. there was no border patrol until 1924, and it only became an issue when outside influences - in this case, Germany, in the form of the so-called "Zimmerman telegram" -- tried to stir up trouble. people who actually *live* in the border towns have very few issues with  immigrants and guest workers. the rhetoric tends to come from people 1000 or more miles away.

Must admit, am relieved that the decision was made not to attack Iran in retaliation.

Interesting. Astonishing, really. And actually, it must be said, a good call.

Don’t you worry a carefully planned attack is coming. They are studying the satellite images first to determine where to attack. We will hit them at our own timeline.

Thankfully, the President is wiser than his supporters. And he is avoiding conflicts. As opposed to his followers who appear to be making excuses for the President's conflict avoidant behavior.

his boss gave the order. it's all over the news. Putin said "no go" and there was no attack. which is good.

Then we should all thank Putin for being the only adult in the room with any apparent sense.

Good luck. If we get Caban elected, which seems likely, it's going to be lawless and these guys will serve no time. The 115 won't be able to do anything. Can't wait for the neighborhood to crumble even further. :(

East New York (which is next to Crown Heights) is gentrifying. And apartment prices/businesses are on the rise.

Also it is all very well for childless folks to be blase about these issues. We are more likely to be immune to the allure of drugs. We can afford to be dismissive about it. Selfish, even. But bringing up kids in an environment where drugs are openly sold on the street is not great. Teens, being teens, will want to experiment.

The whole Democratic Party is behind legalizing drugs. First marijuana then other drugs. Like in the Netherlands. I don’t understand why you are complaining.

Then again if it were legalized, at least it wouldn't need to be sold on the streets...
