Is anyone surprised? With all the good ole boy networks and dirty DemocRATS destroying everything with free jobs to family, high taxes to pay for those jobs, economic development zones, etc... What the hell can you do? Most politicians in Buffalo couldnt make it in the real world so they ran for public office and bam, there out stealing from the tax payers. What a corrupt shit hole.

The question is, does anyone need to write, publish or read a list like this? With all the other lists out there, this one is just evidence of a slow news day, or that it's summertime and all the top writers are on vacation.

SOCIALISM DOES NOT WORK

TELL THAT TO OBAMA AND THE LIBERAL DEMOCRATS. TAKE PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR OWN ACTIONS.

How about a REALITY check.

Did anyone else notice that the cities in decline and decay are ones with ever increasing minority populations and liberal Democrat leadership?

See a trend here? I do!

Lazy welFare collecting people voting for politicians that are tax and spend liberals that buy their votes with free money. Well, it's not free. YOU PAY (taxpayers)

The liberals are in complete and utter denial.

A failure as a race and a political party is well documented.

You want socialist Obama. YOU PAY!

Repariations aren't far behind. YOU PAY!

How does Jimmy Z, a freeloader who is sucking on the taxpayers purse, see himself as any better that his detested-- ever increasing minority populations??

What a hypocrite !!

What an empty headed big mouth !!

Buffalo lost the reason for it to exist when the St. Lawrence Seaway was opened.

All the unionized plants and transportation found themselves under priced by foreign businesses.

Grain, iron ore and scrap iron was shipped out across the Atlantic for processing leaving behind a mortally wounded economy in Buffalo.

I see Buffalo rebounding due to the excessive commerce that Tim Hortons brings..

Sitting here in Tampa, looking at houses and finding out that I can save hundreds every month with no increase in my income. 30 years of listening to the same old shit about disfunctional WNY, its time to move on. Seems like government down here in Florida can do it better and cheaper than the 400 + elected officials in Erie County can. My property taxes in Akron went up this year by 39%!!! Only oil companies raise their prices by that much. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

More blacks equal MORE crime, MORE poverty, MORE destruction. Facts are facts.

Liberal Democrat mayors have done NOTHING for this city.

These uppity, elitist, in denial,'white guilt' liberals should take a ride from their lofty surburban homes to Buffalo's East side and see the vast destruction of that entire area caused by blacks.

They should and kill CHILDREN. Remember that.
