LA's Problems

Hello all! Im currently living in NYC, Im originally from Tennessee. While I DO like NY, I feel I may like LA more. While Ive never been, I do plan to visit later this year. Before I came to NYC I thought it was perfect and I would love it forever. Well, now I see the problems it has, and my own personal problems with it. So tell me honestly guys, what are LA's problems? Both the main problems of the city, and personally what you dont like about it. Please dont think Im bashing on LA, its not like Im saying "NYC is God's gift to the earth and LA sucks!" Thanks all! :)

So, parts of Wisconsin are beautiful too! Yay for the state of Wisconsin. But I must say, these pictures really don't represent the scale or the scope of the beauty when you're standing on a rocky cliff looking over at the foliage and the vast ocean and the coast of Maine. I think everybody knows that Maine is, in fact, known for its beautiful landscape.

Sounds like you've never been to Wisconsin. The entire western half of the state of Wisconsin looks exactly like those pictures. I mean EXACTLY like those pictures(except for the picture with the lighthouse, which looks EXACTLY like a picture along Lake Michigan). Check out Google maps and do a satellite image if you've never been.
Can we please get back to LA's problems!!

Here we are in the US/California/LA desperately trying to convince people that different modes of urban transit will suit all of us best and Berlin is doing it with a snap of a finger in high style. Just take a look at this shit! :bleep:

And we can't even get a unanimous vote on a subway to the sea.
That station is for nationwide rail. Germany is building rapid rail over the whole country. We can't think of something like this until the USA gets serious about high-speed rail. Unfortunately that's a long time off.

L.A.'s problems for me (in no particular order):

Dirty beaches
Homelessness
High cost of living
Traffic
Smog

Problems common to all big cities (including dirty beaches? maybe dirty rivers?) which I think the city can fix....
Individuals who complaint about Los Angeles and are still living here. Please do us a favor and get the F*ck out of here......... :2cents:
Hey Kiddo! The fact that people who complain still live here despite all these problems shows REAL LOVE FOR THE CITY, baby!!! Ha! Ha! The point is, no city is perfect and we Angelenos should demand more from ourselves and our city government. All of us have a stake in this city and we are hoping for a better future!
I hear what you saying......... but still not only here on this forum but in the real world I always hear people complaining about this and that. But no one does absolutely nothing beyond words to make it better but a hand full out there. Then you have the LA bashers who continue living here and that's annoying. hmmmmm does this even make sense???
welcome to the modern american democratic system ferney
