"New Orleans is deteriorating due to corruption, decaying infrastructure, inefficient public transportation, and a colossal crime rate. The dishonest mayor, falling buildings like Hard Rock Hotel, and violent crime are dire issues. The job market is declining with no reputable companies interested in operations. It's reminiscent of Detroit's scenario."
"Portland's drug decriminalization rollout was a mess, causing issues for innocent bystanders. Drug users smoke hard drugs in public places. Small businesses suffer, neighborhoods are overrun with RVs and waste, and crime, like car and bike theft, has increased. Online shopping has surged due to a decrease in local shopping trips. The enhancement of public transport overlooked passenger and driver safety. Increased regulations slow down and make everything more expensive. Yet, if you're a drug addict, perspective favours you."
"Downtown Denver, once a beautiful shopping destination, is now plagued with homelessness, drug addiction, and violence. Nightly disturbances resemble a zombie apocalypse. Several encampments of 10-20 tents line the sidewalks and underpasses. This sad reality makes me want to relocate soon."
