St. Louis. Sigh. The handwriting is on the wall. St. Louis continues to feel the ramifications of decades of inept, dysfunctional and corrupt leadership. Violent crime is out of control, record murders/hundreds of unsolved cases, poverty is high, homelessness is high, the overall quality of life is low, residents are being failed by every single institution… and leaders are tonedeaf. St. Louis has a teeny, tiny window of opportunity to change course before the bottom falls out… and that opportunity is being squandered by Democrats trying to rebrand themselves with black faces pushing symbolism, faux white wokeness and reactionary action disguised as change… taking a play out of the Black Lives Matter playbook.
At this point fam, you have one of three options fight or flight. By fight I mean strategically, being tactical and disciplined. By flight I mean leave, move, get out if you can… if you can’t brace for impact for when the bottom falls out. Seriously. Things are going to get a lot worse before they get better. St. Louis has been on this downward projection for years, every election pushed as change or a symbolic first. Widespread nepotism, cronyism and corruption. Ego and pettiness. And systemic racism. And the same failed players shuffled from one position to the next.
The only change is race, gender and identity.
