Its so sad cause i grew up here and i moved away for 10 years or better.Came back to help my parents out.I cant believe how bad it got here.It has changed for the worst.I remember playing kickball and football at the middle school.I had so much fun and not a care in the world.Now forget it.You would be lucky to be able to walk down the street to the store without getting harrased.These kids now a day are diffrent.I went to fast track one day.I was waiting in line and this kid was about 10 or 11 years old.He had what seemed to be a fake looking syring.A toy one that had fake blood in it.He was standing behind me and he had it on hes arm.Looking like he was shooting up.Saying ahhhh this feels good and so on.I was so shocked that i was speackless.I just couldnt believe it that he know what to do with it.He must of seen it some where.Maybe hes parents maybe on T.V.I dont know?But when i was little i was playing games.Not pretending to do drugs.Its a shame that it is the way it is.Shame on you parents for not teaching them from whats right and whats wrong.Iam hoping one day the town will change.But you know it wont.I just wish it was the way it used to be.The kids now a days have no manners at all.You can drive down the street.Do you think they move or walk on the sidewalk?NOOOOO!I just want to say i want my town back the way it was.Go back to where ever you came from.Because i know iam not the only one that feels this way.

There are too many old, white people in Amsterdam. They are like bum-people soaking up all medical monies. They and their teabagging are causing the troubles. We need more goats.

Amsterdam is not the same city it once was before. The nice neighborhoods of decases ago are now overrun with people on welfare. I;m sorry, but someone who doesn't work and doesn't own their own home does not have the same pride in keeping up their property as someone who does.
I listen to the kids on the street where my parents live. They just don't go out and play like we did. They yell up the street using the F word all the time. If we had done that we would have got a smack accrosss the face and been grounded for a long time. We would have also had to apologize to the person we used the foul language on.
And all the people who say it is becase there are so man Pueerto Ricans in Amsterdam or call Amsterdam "Amster=RIco"...wake up people, There are just as many hard working Puerto Ricans in our city as hard working Caucasians. There is also an equal number of non-working lazy assed welfare bums of both races. Amsterdam does not have a race issue, it has much deeper issues......
kids need to be disciplined and taught to respect their elders///people need to again take back their neighborhoods and report abuse, drug dealings, etc///people need to take pride in their homes, whether rented or owned///Build and create things and places for our teenagers to go///don't buy video games for your kids, or at least limit their time on video games and tv....kick their butts outside and tell them to go play! mow the lawn! help their grandparents!!
Amsterdam made itself the way it is today...tear down that eyesore of a mall and bring back the old downtown

It's actually because of all the scumbags on welfare & food stamps who don't work are waking up at 3 in the afternoon everyday and breeding non stop. They all smoke pot & are crack heads,surprisingly they can afford that. All the "nice" neighborhoods are being robbed & someone even got stabbed around the corner from my house.
