This is a sad state of affiars for all Americans. What the "liberals" don't see is that when the value of homes goes down, so does the education and pride of ownership of the people who "may" move in. On my street alone you will see cars parked 100% in the front yard facing the main kitchen window, trash piled on the curbs with signs written in spanish and English saying "FREE", stolen shopping carts on the sidewalks, dead yards full of either dirt or weeds and houses that look like crap! If you approach any of these new residents, you can't speak to them becuase none of them speak English. I left Moreno Valley, then Perris, then Escondido becuase of this "non-educated third world religious controlled countries" where these idiots come from. Mainly the catholic church run countries south of the border. We need to take our country back and to have a place where my family can live in comfort without worried about crime. Yes, I live in Temecula! Yes I contact Code Enforcement, yes something is said and nothing done. However if the disabled Marine in a wheelchair doesn't cut his grass as often as needed, he gets FINED! Yes, this happend in Temecula!
