Is it a coincidence that all these cities are under Democratic rule and/or minority rule?
I think not. Liberal/Socialism makes slums and sewers.

I'm surprised,

Kinda figured border towns would make up a good chunk of the list.

I wonder what other things each of these cities have in common.

employment rate, level of education, median wage, % on governmental assistance, demographics, etc.

Government Assistance

I'm pretty sure it's probably right up there with, or even higher than, the unemployment rates.

I read that study...

It was hilarious. It also stated that Texas was like #5 most dangerous state to like in.However, the very first sentence tried to quantify it by saying that Texas really isn't that bad, we just incarerate a higher % of criminals. So, we just get a bad rep for putting more criminals in jail? Doesn't make a lick of sense to me.

Hard to argue

You can ad the "downtown" DFW too. Just ask SJMB.
San Antonio is getting pretty liberal too. Just sad.

Yep. DFW is a Yankee enclave. Very pretentious and very plastic. Starting to hate it here.

Did some time in Dallas, Denton, San Antonio, and Witcita Falls. Never did see the Falls. Had a great time in Dento, great college town, screwed a Generals Daughter up there.

Nuevo Laredo was fun too. Also spent time in Laredo.

I always liked Denton. But it's starting to slide now too. North Dallas getting too crowded, so Dallasites and Carpetbaggers moving there now.

I used to live just outside st Louis. The gang bangers and wanna be's are truly scary. These guys will shoot you for no reason. The problem is that they are moving out into the country. Now, we have meth heads trying to be bad asses. You want to know what keeps me up at night. The thought of 2 or 3 of these MFs breaking in and hurting my wife and kids. Used to it was simple to avoid the wrong places, but now who knows. I've got a great job, I can't just move to Alaska. I just have to be ready for when the wolf comes knocking. At least that guy in Texas is not in trouble for protecting his daughter. Not a gang banger, but a whole other problem just outside the door. The problem is that we don't see ourselves as single country, but as different groups in close proximity. No matter who wins this fall, the ends will keep pulling until we rip apart.
