“When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it." ~Frederic Bastiat
I almost went to Binghampton U. I remember reading about the area and a bunch of people kept mentioning this one street that you shouldn't cross, cause you go from nice small college community to detoilet.
Hey ipoke, you ever been to Arbor Hill in Albany? I had to pick up my friend, he was visiting his sister (she only fucks blaeks) and a black guy threw a bag of crack in my car and told me $10. this was around noon in front of a bunch of people. I told him no, and then he gave his spiel how he was trying to do right fo' all his kids and sheeit. Then he asked me how much for my watch. Great neighborhood. Kids of all ages running around during school hours on a weekday.
Plattsburgh is starting to get inundated according to some of my friends that live up there. There must be some kind of down low relocation from the city program because of all the hipsters gentrifying areas. A bunch of those nice towns are turning to complete shit.
No, just drove through Albany a bunch of times. But you are correct about the relocation shit. Basically a bunch of slumlords with political "friends" buy up old houses and apartment complexes, then social services relocates the baboons from NYC and gives them free housing and EBT. So the slumlords and their buddies in office make shitloads from taxpayer money.
However the slums are easy to spot and easy to avoid, and they are far away from nice areas.
