PC = Poor Cleveland

Cleveland Again Listed as Nation's Poorest City

Sep 12, 2006 08:03 AM

CLEVELAND (AP) - The city returned to the top of the U.S. Census Bureau's ranking of poorest big cities, reclaiming the unwanted title from Detroit. Cleveland had 32.4 percent of its 452,200 people living below the poverty level in 2005, according to the American Community Survey released Tuesday.

"I'm shocked," said Myron Robinson, president and chief executive officer of the Urban League of Greater Cleveland. "We're stuck with it and we've got to do something about it. It just seems that we as a community have got to pull our resources closer together and try to move together to come up with a concerted effort. We're so fragmented."

Last year, Cleveland fell to No. 12 on the list. City leaders celebrated when the 2005 survey put the city's poverty level at 23.2 percent, down from the nation-leading 31.3 percent the year before. But some questioned how the ranking could fall so far in just 12 months.

Two years ago, in the middle of a hotly contested presidential campaign focused on Ohio, Cleveland's spot as the nation's poorest city quickly became a political lightning rod. The city's leaders began numerous efforts to try to combat the problem, including forming a group to study the issue.

The new rankings are based on various-sized samples of data collected monthly last year. The Census Bureau has said it quadrupled its data collection from the last survey, making this year's ranking a more accurate poverty picture and making comparisons to the 2005 survey tricky.

Detroit is No. 2 in the latest report, with 31.4 percent of its residents living in poverty. When accounting for the margin of error, the estimates for Cleveland and Detroit were not significantly different, the bureau said.

Overall, the nation's poverty rate was essentially unchanged last year, the first year it hasn't increased since before President Bush took office. Some 37 million Americans were living under the poverty line last year - about 12.6 percent of the population. That's down from 12.7 percent in 2004, but census officials said the change was statistically insignificant.

The median household income - the point at which half make more and half make less - was $46,300 nationwide, a slight increase from 2004. Cleveland had the lowest median household income among large cities at $24,105. Dayton was ninth lowest among smaller cities at $25,928.

In this year's report, Cleveland wasn't the only Ohio city in the top part of the rankings. Cincinnati ranked No. 8, with one out of every four Cincinnatians, or 25 percent, living in poverty last year, according to the report. Cincinnati was No. 22 in last year's rankings, which said 19.6 percent of its people lived in poverty.

PC = Potential Communist?


This forum has brought up something very interesting.

Your Favorite Political Party And Why

VR said,
"Lemme see... The Army of Techno Fanatics
Why: It's the only political party that follows the RIGHT teachings! Techno-Communism galore!"

interrupt_00h said,
"Explanation: Army of Techno Fanatics is interrupt_00h's creation. Wink"

I would like to go on record that the Army of Techno has not chosen a political party to stand with. In fact, we are an Army that can't even pick one country to fight for. We represent the world, all of its people.

If that makes us commies, well then shit.

interrupt_00h is lying about creating an Army of Techno Fanatics, we have been doing this for years.

Pondering Consciousness

I have been having much more lucid dreams recently, and they are resembling reality more and more. The frustrating part is when I wake up. I guess death is just waking up from the dream of life.

I expect that to be less frustrating

PC= Persistent Corporations

Have you seen them lately?

They are shipping jobs overseas...
There goes that factory in Canton,
Oh well, it is the new economy...
Too bad for all those workers of the old economy...
That ship has sailed...
To India,
and anywhere else the corporations can go,
to become more profitable,
And who profits?
The American Economy
Except for the Americans that have
no jobs,
no training,
no chance,
It is a grim future, but those corporations can hang...
They're persistent, I'll submit that much...
But soon, the masses will outweigh the fatcats,
then my friends, the shit will hit the fan...

So I leave you with this thought...
Can we persist more than the corporate philosophy?
Can we innovate and create something that you can't get in India or China?
You better hope so...
