Funny, Grand Rapids has appeared on CNBC's hit show "American Greed" more than any city in the US! What does this say about the majority Caucasian population, which as statistics indicate is Dutch CRC/RCA? Seems like this city was built on ponzi schemes and multilevel marketing Dutch church goer con men. Never seen so many tall ugly people as I've seen in West Michigan.

The ignorant people are the ones who are stupid enough to believe stories scribbled by some desert dwellers a couple thousand years ago. Most people used to believe the earth was flat. That is where the Christian suckers are still at, living in the dark ages.
There are no atheists who are stupid enough to believe in talking animals like Christians do.
The gays are a bunch of disgusting pedophiles. We don't need them imposing their sick, filthy religion of disease and perversion on our society. Go back to where you came from.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so I was told a long time ago. IF that is true, then you must be one ugly person since your post indicates bigotry against those who are not like you.

Kinda reminds me that the Progressives are doing Christians what the Islamists are doing to Christians in Egypt.....

Haters can finally stop bashing the Christian Reformers as they are one in the same with the progressive ideology.
The CRC church elite has bought the liberal lies... hook...line and sinker. And of course, the conservatives are missing the courage chip. So be patient CRC haters... as the end of the CRC church is coming.

Anyone ever notice how the entire judicial system in Ottawa Co. consist of all judges who share same Dutch ethnicity (northern Netherlands), all practice basically same religion (CRC & RCA)?

Where else in the USA is a judicial system controlled by one ethnicity and one religion?

What other religions consist of mostly one ethnicity?

Physically speaking, Ottawa Co. even looks like the northern Netherlands. I see a lot of overly tall toe-heads with white eyebrows, who dress in clothes one-step above Amish, and always quick to invite you to their "church"

Look at the resident's last names, the police officer's last names, the judge's last names, and the lawyer's last names, because the names either begin with a "Van" or "De" and end with a "ma" or a "stra".

And be careful not to get into trouble with the law there, because you will probably end up with Dutch judge, Dutch Lawyers, and Dutch jurors who all belong to same religion.

Does this really feel like the USA?

It's like a cult, there's no doubt about it. A bunch of busy bodies thinking they have it all figured out. With their Chevy Tahoes covered with christian school bumper stickers and their unpleasant, poorly behaved children. Nowhere else in the country is banality and prosaicness practiced to such a high degree (not to mention considered an achievement). There are pockets of this country that are dominated by certain ethnic populations, that in and of itself isn't necessarily a bad thing. The problem with the dutch reformed is that they're incredibly boring, and uninteresting people. On top of that they are rude and unwelcoming, probably because they think they are better than the non-dutch CRC'ers. Go to any store or gas station in Holland, Zeeland, Hudsonville, Grandville or Jenison and watch how many times the 18 year old, sunken-eyed, flat foreheaded blonde haired girl behind the counter says "thank you" or seems appreciative, in any way, that you have decided to spend your money there so she can get paid so she can go buy another 3 1/2 minutes at the mall. Then leave and feel lucky she decided to wait on you at all. The dutch CRC'ers have raised a bunch of entitled, selfish, nasty, anti-social clones. Their names all sound the same, they all look the same, are all socially awkward and enjoy the blanket of security and familiarity that their idiot parents have provided for them. I have worked in retail in west Michigan for 25 years and there is definitely a pattern here. I do business with these people every day. As someone who wasn't born here or has never stepped foot in a church with the word "reformed" on it I can tell you that these people have a weird sense about them. West Michigan is their little, tiny empire that they've built and boy are they proud of it. It's ok that west Michigan's population is stagnant because they don't want anyone else coming here anyway. Those ads for pure Michigan that tout Holland or west Michigan make me cringe. As a tourist from other parts of the country why would you want to come to a place that is so insular and ruled by rude, ugly, judgmental people? Who needs that? Spend your money on a place that actually wants you there, where people smile and are actually glad you've come to visit.

I worked in retail for a long time and you could always tell when one of them walked into my showroom. Little to no eye contact, timid, quiet, and seemed overly suspicious of everything I said. On the other hand, I'd get the one who had no streets smarts and believed everything I said. Sometimes I would lose deals just because we did not attend the same church or I wasn't in their Dutch circle. I also sold the same product in Detroit, Chicago and South FL and the people at least had personalities and you could sell the product for a higher dollar.

Have you ever seen the CRC Dutch hair style I like to call the "mean bird" short blonde with highlights and spiked and pointy in the back? Seems to be the hair style of choice, especially at Panera Bread on 44th and Kenowa.

Don't like it here? Then leave. Why stay someplace you don't like? And don't like your neighbors? Please, feel free to find another neighborhood, perhaps one with people who look and act just like you. then you would be more comfortable, and everyone knows that is the only reason you are on this earth, so YOU can be comfortable and have your way all the time.

Perhaps you would feel more comfortable in say New York, Chicago, LA, or Detroit? Oh wait, how about Miami? You apparently don't like others who are "different" from you. So why stay? And for that matter, why even visit? You probably don't spend much here anyway to help the economy.

Because they're a bunch of whiny baby bigots who have nothing better to do until school starts. Sad when you have to keep a thread going by using different monikers to make it look like more than one person actually agrees with you.

It's the only way a white person will ever get a fair trial in today's Lib dominated system.

I'm not Dutch at all, to the best of my knowledge. I like it here. I think that most people in West Michigan are very kind, especially compared to many of the places I've travelled.
