Sometimes I digress a bit much and forget theres two blogs of data there. Sorry.
The title says it all. This is how cities die.

There are limited illustrations of what a Phoenix is- all point to HARRY POTTER.
No, I dont want to hear it. Illustrative use is permitted under Copywright law.

Maybe its better I not know what happened to MetroCenter…
Maybe I already know what happened without asking…

No, I dont think desert conditions “created a fire”.
I dont think even gangs took over the place.

THE ENTIRE MALL AND SURROUNDING AREA is sufferring the same fate…
of slowly dying off in the blistery cold of winter…

$3 happy meals and $7 lattes and soups cant save you.
One after another each giant falls, hoping to be replaced either with another giant..
another viable business…
one bank swaps out with another….

in reality..Phoenix(though less contaminated)..is slowly turning into ANNISTON.

O- they want the jobs, the TECH careers..but those prjections are flawed, based on false data, hype,hopes
pipe dreams and houses of cards pushed and assumed by big industry and over-commercialization.

THE INFRA ISNT THERE. NOT SURE IT EVER WAS.

SEE- you need talent like ME, not some hotshot IDIOT 16 year old that (if lucky) that can drop malware on a dime.

Im not saying this for shits and giggles-

Theres a REAL INFRA shortfall out here–and you need QUALITY semi-PROFESSIONALS to get the job done.
PEOPLE THAT CAN BE TRUSTED- and that arent going anywhere.

Repeated Commercialization and trade and businesses will not save phoenix.
Or should I say whats left of north phoenix…
DEVASTATED doesnt come close…..to what has happened here.

We have to start with our colleges, with our minimal wage jobs.
We have to start looking at things as if we were in high school with no job, no life…
..and sometimes no car.

Hoodlums Causing heyday

What do we do?
Where do we go?
What happens when we hang out? HOW FAR DO WE WALK ON FOOT EACH DAY?

What I see frightens me.
Ive seen ANNISTON. Over commercialized. ABANDONED.
FORGOTTEN.

(in some cases 200 year old) Houses owners (by the masses) want to dump them on unsupecting idiots-
but cant for various reasons- and these houses wind up condemned en-mass.(or catch fire)

Commercial lots that become crystal meth, coke, and whore-havens.
Housing “projects” for the poor- abandoned, vacated..centers of systemic city problems.

EMPTY LOTS AFTER LOTS with no street lights- ABANDONED for DECADES OWNER AFTER OWNER.
RENOVATIONS NEVER COMPLETED FOR DECADES……THIS IS (DOWNTOWN) ANNISTON.

Ive seen it.
Ive been abusively forced to live thru it.

This(ANNISTON)- not HIGH RISES CONDOS- NOT THOUSANDS of IT workers, NOT THOUSANDS of new HOMEOWNERS….
is what Phoenix can turn into.

WILL TURN INTO….
…If people dont “get the lead out of thier incompetent asses” and stop taking advantage of others in corporate AMERICA.

This is a MAJOR MALL and surrounding business park in North Phoenix.
To see it in disarray, abandoned, on its last legs……
IS SUCH AN INSULT.

NEW BUSINESSES like ROBIN HOOD WONT SAVE YOU.

WE ARE BETTER THAN THIS.

We have turned our backs on our citizens- but bitch about crimes and drug dealing, and gang violence.
These KIDS, TEENS, have nothing ELSE to DO!

-THE JOBS ARE GONE!

The proposed jobs for college seekers- O Ive been thru those hoops!!!! Work experience(5yrs REQUIRED-with specifics), SECURITY CLEARANCE or BACKGROUND…CERTIFICATIONS, BS(BULLSHIT) degrees from
“CERTIFIED STANDARDIZED INDUSTRY ACCEPTED” colleges.

YES-DARE I SAY IT!!!

AKA: we only accept degrees (you wasted your life savings, your blood sweat and tears on)
from maybe THREE colleges, mostly OUR FOUR YEAR UNIVERSITIES….
which cant even keep straight records and accounting.

Im not even into the college yet(ASU)- Ive dealth with nothing but IDIOTS, RETARDS, INCOMPETENTS, DRUG ADDICTS,
and CORPORATE BULLSHITTERS.

emails that start with:

	LET ME UNDERSTAND....
	CALL ME TO DISCUSS THIS....(dont dare put this on record)
	OH I SEE YOU (did something, said something, etc)....
	I got (some) message from (my super, the DEAN, etc etc)

THATS BULLSHIT. ALL OF IT.
OF COURSE YOU GOT YOUR ASS HANDED TO YOU.
In CASE YOU FORGOT- RETAILIATION IS UNLAWFUL.

-I CHEWED YOUR BOSS OUT AND SHIT ROLLS DOWNHILL, BUB.

70%+ of these colleges out here have LOST thier accreditdation and certifications according to th ED dept.
Ive checked.
They keep trying to recruit en mass FOR PROFIT.
SOME TARGET VETERANS SPECIFICALLY. TO SCAM US!

The entire CITY is based on a JOBS LIE-and a HOUSE OF CARDS.
SEVEN MILLION PEOPLE LIVE HERE. LIVING A LIE.

And what jobs you do get- will fire you in an instant they dont like you, NOT PAY ENOUGH TO SURVIVE…etc…. The second you use medical benefits…YOURE FIRED. YOURE A LIABILITY.

The other main problem is housing.
They still want to burn every tennant they can. EVEN IF YOU CAN PROVE THEY FUCKED UP.

SOME TOWN THIS HAS GOTTEN TO BE.
AND NO. IM NOT LEAVING. DONT ASK. EVER.
