    The “linkage fee” they want to implement is just another ILLEGAL tax, of hundreds already in existence, that the taxpayer will be illegally forced to pay for yet another wasteful and worthless government agenda.

    • Linda Lee

      You have that 100% right. I’m one of those Texas tax payers. You have no idea how glad I am I don’t olive in Austin. They are a mess.

      • At least Texas has no state income tax. Most states DO have such. So Texas is still somewhat decent, but it has criminal cities that should be vacated……..thereby taking all the tax money out of these cities. City Halls should be overrun with angry and knowledgeable citizens every time they have meetings, assuming the city has any civilized citizens. Cities are the scourge of the nation……..every decent person who can, should leave them in haste.

        WRITTEN BY A FEMALE. Wow, this girl has a great plan! Love the last thing she would do – the best.

        This was written by a female who gets it. It’s her future she’s worried about and this is how she feels about the social welfare big government state that she’s being forced to live in! These solutions are just common sense in her opinion.

        This was in the Waco Tribune Herald, Waco , TX

        PUT ME IN CHARGE . . .

        Put me in charge of food stamps. I’d get rid of Lone Star cards; no cash for Ding Dongs or Ho Ho’s, just money for 50-pound bags of rice and beans, blocks of cheese and all the powdered milk you can haul away. If you want steak and frozen pizza, then get a job.

        Put me in charge of Medicaid. The first thing I’d do is to get women Norplant birth control implants or tubal ligations. Then, we’ll test recipients for drugs, alcohol, and nicotine. If you want to reproduce or use drugs, alcohol, or smoke, then get a job.

        Put me in charge of government housing. Ever live in a military barracks? You will maintain our property in a clean and good state of repair. Your “home” will be subject to inspections anytime and possessions will be inventoried. If you want a plasma TV or Xbox 360, then get a job and your own place.

        In addition, you will either present a check stub from a job each week or you will report to a “government” job. It may be cleaning the roadways of trash, painting and repairing public housing, whatever we find for you. We will sell your 22-inch rims and low profile tires and your blasting stereo and speakers and put that money toward the “common good.”

        Before you write that I’ve violated someone’s rights, realize that all of the above is voluntary. If you want our money, accept our rules. Before you say that this would be “demeaning” and ruin their “self-esteem,” consider that it wasn’t that long ago that taking someone else’s money for doing absolutely nothing was demeaning and lowered self-esteem.

        If we are expected to pay for other people’s mistakes we should at least attempt to make them learn from their bad choices. The current system rewards them for continuing to make bad choices.

        I love this one.

        AND While you are on Gov’t subsistence,you no longer can VOTE! Yes, that is correct. For you to vote would be a conflict of interest.You will voluntarily remove yourself from voting while you are receiving a Gov’t welfare check.If you want to vote, then get a job.


        • rfrichey

          If only people who pay into the social security fund, showing they are contributors to society should be allowed to vote. There, that should put the lib suckers to screaming! When the people the democrats are supporting can’t vote them in office any longer maybe we can be great again.

          • genann59

            Was reading today that people are leaving California in droves. And moving to Texas, while bringing their California values with them. Probably settling into Austin, Houston, San Antonio and Dallas, since they are the most like California. And doing all they can to drag Texas down to California levels. Austin has long been known in Texas as Berkeley on the Brazos due to their attempt to out liberal California.

    It is necessary to either be a lunatic or subscribe willingly to insanity in order to be part of the Obammunist left. After spending trillions of dollars on the almost entirely unsuccessful “War on Poverty” our domestic socialists now want to spend more to turn rehabilitated neighborhoods back into violent ghettos. They clearly plan eventually to ghettoize the whole country, and to replace the existing population with a dependent and violent Third World lumpenproletariat that will help them install a one-party peoples republic and will keep a mincing and preening artstocracy of pointy heads, hanky heads and kinky heads in power forever. This is just one more reason why we need to destroy the party of Marx, Mohammed and Mapplethorpe before it destroys us.

NOTHING WAS DONE although they were paid millions. They left town saying that the schools “wouldn’t cooperate with them”.
        Look for the same thing to happen in Austin. If there’s a liberal democRAT in the cordwood somewhere, Y’all are gonna lose a bunch of bucks in payola and taxes and get a rusty sign in a garbage and trash strewn vacant lot proclaiming the miracle that is about to occur !

      There is a housing project here that was built for low income people back in the 30’s that served the purpose well until about 1970 or there about. Nice sturdy brick buildings with tile roofs and copper gutters and downspouts. Sometime around 1980 someone acting as repairmen removed all the copper downspouts and disappeared with them. Nobody saw nothing. Copper was selling at a high price. Now you see the recliners, sofas, busted up furniture and just trash in general strewn around, Also people reroute their traveling around the area after dark. I think it was Einstein who said something to the effect of, ignorance is making the same mistake over and over and expecting different results.

      • There’s a low income neighborhood that was, mostly, white. All of the sudden it became a, mostly black, ‘hood’. I was told that the reason was because these ‘victims’ destroyed their taxpayer funded ‘projects’ so badly that they couldn’t be repaired. They had to be razed and rebuilt. The taxpayers, now, have to pay for a brand new EXPENSIVE building for these uncivilized ‘victims’ to destroy. The neighborhood they invaded is, now, known as the ‘new Over The Rhine’ (gang inhabited inner city).

      (fixin in Texas means: has the means or abilities to take action).

      She stopped her car, rolled down the window and said, Please don’t jump, think of your dear mother and father.

      He replied My mom and dad are both dead; I’m going to jump.”

      She said. Well, think of your sweet wife and precious children.

      He replied, I’m not married and I don’t have any kids.

      She said, well, then you just remember the Alamo.

  • I am 78 years old, born in Texas back when it was a democrat state. I used to love to visit Austin, thought it was a wonderful small city. I currently live outside Texas, but would love to still feel good about my state, but Austin, Houston, and Dallas are giving it a horrible name what with their love affair with the non-civilized who elected mayors and city councilmen in those cities. I am ashamed of those cities, and wish they were somewhere else than in my state. My apologies to all decent people.

      I am 80, just returned from 12 years in northeast Texas – 1.5 hours northeast of Dallas, 18,000 people town. I loved it there, but we followed family; family moved to California; and we came home to Pennsylvania.

      In 2010, I finally realized that most in my county identified as “Democrat” would have been Republican if they lived in PA! We pushed the Tea Party, got many of the to join, and turned the whole county Republican – even the Democrat office holders changed party to Republican!

      There are a lot of such folks all over Texas, and we must reach them to help them move to good sense Republican, conservative ideas.

      • Good for you!!! I believe most small towns in Texas are conservative. Most small towns over the entire nation are, I believe, conservative; whereas most large cities are leftist. I suspect this is the result of few people personally knowing very few people in cities. When almost everyone knows almost everyone else in a town, they tend to share some of the same thinking, and they do not have unknown crowds telling them HOW TO THINK. IOW, small towns, for the most part remain conservative, love America the way if should be loved, are content, and live as neighbors, NOT as enemies.

      Consider this: A lot of U.S. citizens are attracted to “socialistic” and “communistic” principles because they are SECULAR. Eliminate the religious denial of full civil and human rights – and a lot more people could welcome conservative political and economic philosophies.

      • Jerry Del Vecchio

        We’ve lost our moral compass by denying the Christian basis for the US Constitution and Bill of Rights. The Founding Fathers didn’t want to keep religion out of government…they wanted to keep government out of religion by espousing Freedom of Religion and not creating a “government approved” religion like England Anglican Church.

        • Mustafa Curtess

          I’m unaware of how “moral compass” relates to the political and cultural ambiance of Austin, Tx. “The Founding Fathers” were by no means ALL religious zealots (those that were – DID argue for a Christian-driven society – to the extent that they proposed that ONLY “Christians” would be allowed to come here.) The “Fathers” were by no means a monolithic philosophical bloc. (They debated – sometimes acrimoniously.) They were also closer to the long history of misery in Europe – based on the several conficting interpretations of “scripture” – and eventually agreed to avoid a repetition in the Republic which they designed. Not only did they repudiate the notion of a “State” religion – they were careful to avoid any impugned indulgence for the “Christian” religion. (Altho there are an incredible number of wishful-thinking bigots who say otherwise.)
          Peer Pressure was even stronger then than it is now – so every man of influence at that time was OBLIGED to the pretense of strong Christian affiliation (“witches” WERE being burned-at-the-stake at that time – after all) but we can safely assume that certain of them intellectually (and “morally”) undertood that no man can be “free” when his life is regulated by the spiritually-based prejudices of others (even as a “majority”). There has never been – nor is there now – a greater Tyranny than the “Belief” in religious dogma.
          I stand by what I said: So long as the Trump Admin. drives policies that materially benefit EVERYONE – his success is “in the bag”. But if he (politically!) panders to the “emotional” advantage of the “Religious Right” (as maybe he is beginning to do?) – all the Democrats need do is nominate a “decent” candidate in 2020 to turn it back to the Democrats (hopefully ones that learn respect for what resonates with “Middle-America”).
          Somewhere in the not-too-distant past – there was a brief flirtation with a “Conscientious Conservative” movement. Whatever became of that? Aborted by the bible-thumpers?

    Give me a rural red area any day compared to the insanity of the deep blue city slums.

    Birds of a feather flock together. It is true in nature and it is true in human nature. Skin color has little or nothing to do with it. Values chosen by the individuals is what divides them or unites them. Those who maintain their property and control their lives do not enjoy living next to people who neglect their property and violate the laws of a civil society.

    • cabowabo78727

      Very well said; and true!

      Well said, Marcia!

    Why don’t they spend the money on getting the poor educated and giving them useful trades so they can become part of the gentry. If they don’t work for betterment or help themselves, they are doomed to poverty

  • curmudgeon VN Veteran

    In case you are having a rough day, here’s a stress management technique recommended in all the latest psychological journals. The funny thing is that it really does work and will make you smile.

    1. Picture yourself lying on your belly on a warm rock that hangs out over a

    crystal clear stream.

    2. Picture yourself with both your hands dangling in the cool running water.

    3. Birds are sweetly singing in the cool mountain air.

    4. No one knows your secret place.

    5. You are in total seclusion from that hectic place called the world.

    6. The soothing sound of a gentle waterfall fills the air with a cascade of serenity.

    7. The water is so clear that you can make out the face of the liberal Democrat you are holding underwater.

    See it worked. You’re smiling. You feel better already.

    • cabowabo78727

      I not only smiled, I laughed. Made My Day!

  • Andres Villamarzo

    This is being done under the Trump administration, it’s part of his re-build America Plan. If you guys recall, Trump and fa.. are into real estate development!!!!!! If you want to get angry, get angry at Trump, Obama has been gone for 5 months already, enough with the blame game!!!!!

    • Ken Thomas

      Why don’t you return to whatever hole you crawled out from?

      • Andres Villamarzo

        Fuck you asshole!

        • 11791

          See, no one likes you. I told you!

          • Andres Villamarzo

            They are all your asshole buddies, whom do business with you @ 11791 street corner! The truth be told, I could care less if they did, you appear to be caught up in popularity contest because you probably rank 1,000 on the whale manure scale!!!!!! good luck with old fish lips Trumpsky, probably why you like him so much because your lips are used for what he doesn’t have being he has tiny hands like a small doll “not blow up dolls” like yours!!!!

          • 11791

            How does it feel to be all alone old man? No wife, no friends? You weren’t even in the service. All you have is Trump to complain about. If all that wasn’t bad enough, you still don’t know what plural means. bhahahahaha. …….. Stupid monkey!

          • Andres Villamarzo

            It feels great asswipe because knowing that your truly at the bottom of the ocean underneath whale manure, makes me feel great and especially knowing that you came out of a “Planned Pethood” Veterinary Clinic that was giving away urangutans , it couldn’t get any better!!!!!

          • 11791

            Why so angry? Being gay is nothing to be ashamed of. Now having no friends is a different story.

          • Andres Villamarzo

            Ashamed? You and the asshole Trumpsky voters talking about anger? You truly are a full blown hipocrit!!! Go back to school, get off welfare, food stamps and Medicaid and do all of us a favor and get a full time job, even if it is shoveling horse manure at the Veterinary Clinic where you were born!!!!!!!

          • 11791

            Good … admitting you are gay is a first step. You are on your way snowflake.

          • 11791

            Are you still playing make believe Marine? You are one funny monkey.

          • Andres Villamarzo

            Was drafted moron, unlike your Donald Trumpsky who was home eating milk and cookies with 6 medical deferments to keep him out of military service. I served my time. I know that you served in the Salvation Army as a door greeter and you presently work as same @ Walmart , we praise you for that as you do have a rather large payment plan to the state for your years on welfare, food stamps and Medicaid!!!!!

          • Matthew V. Brown

            If you can’t spell “hypocrite”, maybe you are the one who needs to go back to school, Andres.

        • Ken Thomas

          Go back to whatever latino slum you came from beaner. You want a piece of me you better be packing heavy beaner scum.

          • Andres Villamarzo

            Screw you, you fucking racist trump/skunk supporter!

          • Ken Thomas

            I’d bet money you’re an illegal beaner to boot and typical liberal scum that needs to be escorted back across the border at the tip of a bayonet.

          • 11791

            Oh, so angry! You need to get in touch with your feminine side. Remember, there is nothing wrong with being a gay man.

          • Andres Villamarzo

            You should know, you appear to have a lot of experience with your gayness! Maybe your bretheren can help you out with some of your issues? A transvestite like you should have no problems now, go to the Trump Towers in NYC so he can grab you by the crotch……

          • 11791

            You’re back. I thought you might have died. Wishful thinking. One can only hope. Have you ever found what plural means? Monkey.

          • Andres Villamarzo

            Never left! Anyway, after hearing that you were making a pilgrimage to Trump Towers with Caitlyn Jenner for your yearly ritual of being grabbed by the private areas by your new found hero, we were all in shock as to whether you would return. Little did anybody know, you were like a fart in the wind but in reverse, the wind blew you back.
            We are all waiting to hear from you as to how you are going to pay back your welfare, food stamps and Medicaid bills especially after your transvestite operation/surgery? Let us know, we are all ears, and want to know the truth, try not to lie (we know how you Trump supporters are deny, deflect and blame everybody else for being ignorant and morons) so try and be a good transvestite and be honest with everybody!!!!!!

          • 11791

            You make many assumptions, all of which are incorrect. No surprise there. And who are the we and us you’re referring to? No one ever agrees with anything you say, you have no friends. No one ever takes your side. Also, it is you who is on a variety of public assistance. It is you who is the government parasite. You are one stupid monkey.

          • Andres Villamarzo

            Only repeating what I hear from you! How was your pilgrimage to Trump Towers with your boyfriend Elton john? Hope you were received/greeted with a big grope? Anyway, good luck with your transvestite life and I hope not to hear from you again! Thank you….

          • Andres Villamarzo

            p.s.- what year were you released from the mental institution in your state?

    • cabowabo78727

      Woefully Wrong Amigo!

    • 11791

      Define plural for everyone. HAHAHAHA

      • Andres Villamarzo

        plural is you and yo0yur asshole buddies all cages up like the pet urangutans you guys are!!!! Like I said before, if your mama knew how stupid you really are, she’d trade you in for a pet urangutan! It’s probably where your mama picked you up, at a local Veterinary Clinic for “Planned Pethood” and got you before the local zoo could pick you up.. Good luck retardo!!!!!!

        • 11791

          Why do you hate women? Are you homosexual?

          • Andres Villamarzo

            I don’t hate women, just animals like you!

          • 11791

            No, I hear the anger. Come out of the closet. You’ll feel better. So what if your lite in the loafers.

    • sweetolbob

      Blame Game !? What about the pods of illiterate, muslim, knob headed, Somalis that Obama lovingly forced on small cities, especially in the South East ? What about Eric Holer (no typo) and his bigoted DOJ ? What about Loretta Lynch ? What about Fast & Furuous ? What about the IRS scandal ? What about the Government spying on everyday citizens ? What about Hillary and her “Pay for Play”, give to the Clinton Foundation scam ? What about the Iran Nuclear deal ?

  • TPS12

    Ah dems/libs once again spending taxpayer money and getting new tax money. I wonder how many of their friends and family will be getting paid to manage or build this project? Lets build it in their neighborhood so they can make it work.

  • kbmiller

    Just like it’s difficult for a family to admit to the neighborhood that “Uncle Henry”, is a bit DAFT, larger ethnic groups refuse to admit that there “May be”, a problem with their societal mores, behaviors,values, etc. Similar to ex pres. Barack Hussein OHOMO’s refusal to name “Islamic Terrorism”, as a major problem for the USA and the rest of the world, if ANY ethnic group refuses to admit THEIR OWN failures and problems, they’ll not be able to correct them. Using the cudgel of government to force the rest of society to accept as norms, with the threat of enforcement, these only lower societal standards in general. This seems more like ,”Devolution”, than “Evolution”.

  • Nellie McConnell

    Doesn’t work. They will stay on Welfare. Work for cash and send their money to home country. Especially Muslim extremists. Drug gangs move into area, more crime. CA just transports them to Sanctuary cities. More crime. Everyone should work for what they have.

  • Cadfael

    Democrats need more “Projects”, ghettos where their “Organizers”, hatred peddlers, and race pimps can hold sway; indoctrinating their targets in victim mentality, racial and political hatred in support of global communism, and imbuing them with a sense of fate and economic impotence. Their goal to create welfare handout dependency for a constituent voter base bought with taxpayer money, a solid Democrat voter base; raised on and confined to the modern Democrat plantation, whipped with epithets and pursued by a posse of poverty escapee and truth seeker shamers should they escape to conservatism. The party of slavery has gotten more refined in their approach to slavery, utilizing slogans, commercials, propaganda, PR, welfare handouts, the media, Planned Parenthood, and immigration policy to achieve their goals but make no mistake it is still slavery nonetheless.

  • Leroy Kelly

    I am 64 years old. I remember the low income areas being built in my city and they were not taken care of by the residents. To assert that taxpayers should rebuild these areas every 20 years or so, is insane. Every apartment complex, or neighborhood, I have ever seen that was built for low income, and which continues to be subsidized by the taxpayers, is a place no one else would choose to live. They’re filthy and in disrepair because the people living there don’t care. It is, and has always been, a way for liberals to house people in compounds far away from them. I can assure you that the rich politicians would not live in one of these neighborhoods, nor would they allow them to be constructed in proximity to theirs. If it came to that, they would take advantage of their inside information, sell their properties far in advance and move so as not to take a financial loss in real estate values. People need to say “Stop!” Tell their elected officials that their self serving largesse is killing us. Liberals see low income people as inferior to them, and they cynically throw state and federal tax dollars at them for their political support. It is a dysfunctional system run by opportunists with twisted perspectives. We should take gifts from politicians with a sigh; they give to receive.

    I expect more sense from Texas, of course being so big it is expected to have leftie-cancer cells in Texas, and Austin seems to be one.

  • GuardianFlame

    Okay. Why do Whites keep trying to fix a Black Problem with White Ideas? Until the Black Communities get tired of living with their own culture’s crime and abuse against its own people, nothing the White race will do will solve the Black race’s issues.B

    • mica

      It is not a white/black issue. See Marcia above.

      • GuardianFlame

        Oh yes it is. I REPEAT: Until Blacks truly want a better future for their kids, their society will never improve. Whites cannot put White ethics on a Black neighborhood – they are two different life styles. Blacks must choose to improve their lives as a whole and do something about it – as a whole…not individuals. So far they haven’t made that decision and are still dealing with gang activity for their kids.

        Most Whites have no idea of how difficult it is to survive in the Projects or a Black neighborhood…or actually any Latino neighborhood or any cultural neighborhood.

        FYI: My Spouse and I (Caucasins) lived in a Latino neighborhood where we were the minority. The house across the street sold drugs out of a bedroom window while one of the daughters was a prostitute in Hollywood that kept getting pregnant and popping out mixed blood babies and leaving them at the drug house to be raised by her mother and sister.

        I had a Police Officer stop and ask me if I knew where I was living – a gang infested neighborhood. He suggested we get out of that neighborhood fast. We had no idea how violent that neighborhood was.

        There were 4 murders in that neighborhood that we knew of, the last being a 14 year old boy caught in gun fire between two gangs. He died in front of our house 4 days before Christmas. We were at a Company Christmas dinner that night and returned to find law enforcement digging bullets out of our house’s stucco and the street. We sold our property several months later.

        That neighborhood looked innocent enough, but it hid atrocities and nightmare events. It was a small area surrounded by a more affluent area – neither were allowed to cross borders.

        The Black neighborhoods are 10 times worse where drug selling is out in the open, rape happens because of gang members and B&Es are commonplace. Whites have no idea of what it is like to live in a Black neighborhood…no really!

        Blacks are going to have to fix their own neighborhoods using their own people to enforce those changes. That’s the only way it will ever happen! Whites will keep trying to solve the Black issue, but it will be Blacks who finally save their own Race.

    This must be the leftist, liberal, communistic view of urban renewal. Can we spray birth control on their food like we do on the coyotes?

  • MIKE6080

    got a feeling that that sanctuary city wont get state or federal money to turn the neighborhoods back into the hood or barrio

  • j_b_spence

    I would let the task force continue with it’s ideas … Austin-ites really should have no say in this.
    In fact every ‘rich white’ family should have to take one minority family in and provide room & board.

    The $600mm fund is too small – it needs to be at least double since there’s gotta be money
    for bribery and corruption as well.

    No wonder Californians are flocking to Austin …

  • Robbert Hoekstra Azusa

    ?Let’s first find out who is/are behind this “new” idea of segregation (or separation by color or ethnicity) to create a MODERN GHETTO idea? First it was FORCED de-segregation to force “non-colored” people to accept “non-white” people in their communities. Now it is “de-gentrification” to allow segregation of “non-white” people or allowing minorities of “non-white” color to live in segregated ghettos by ethnicity leading to gang controlled districts. Who else stands to benefit from this but those who are creating “no-drive“-zones today? And we know who this racist ethnic group is, don’t we? Where ever they go the devil follows right behind. Of course it would be offensive discriminating to mention it. They want taxpayers’ money but otherwise they do not want to “assimilate”. Like anywhere in the world they come from they create segregated “communities” by sect. Why do we bring in more minorities in the first place and create more racial problems, instead taking care of our own minority problems today? Just look at what is happening to Europe and their invasion e of Arab Muslim infiltrators! They try to cover up, but it does not take much brainpower to see through their cospidicy, does it?

  • Buzz Waldron

    Next, they’ll stupidly want to use taxpayer money for a fund to overpay for used guns !!! . Oh… wait… They’ve already done that…

  • rick

    it’s the same as making poor people happy for a few minutes by telling them minimum wage went to $15. Because shortly after that some will lose their jobs because businesses can’t survive, and some will end up paying more for everything because costs have to go up to pay for higher wages.
    This is the sh-t teachers are “not” teaching because they want the next generation to drive this country into Socialism behind another Democratic lie. It is called control where there will be much more poor and wealthy, no middle class. Kids don’t understand it, but people out here do and yet no one “makes” those teachers quit selling out the children with lies.
    After those homes are built crime will take over them. Democrats know this and that is why they push it.

  • Jim H.

    Affordable Housing? For minorities or Immigration.? That’s the only reasons I can see. More crime, more problems for middle class people. Sure, give them more areas to tear to shreds, lower the property values, commit murders, rapes, robberies, and give them more places to hide.
    Give more work to understaffed police officers and put good people in jeopardy!

    Here’s to you the rich and powerful. Just remember, one good turn deserves another. Sometimes the screw comes looking for you!

  • Monte Mann

    Lived in one of the safest areas of Houston with crime at a dismal low of one lawn more stolen in ten years and they lefft the garage door open. That changed when Katrina struck and the apartments began to receive the New Orleans residents. Crime went way up and the schools went way down in very short order. good intentions don’t make sound policy and just because you feel so good about your self by doing these thins do not make them right or sound. I would ask when will we learn but i don’t think that is possible now.

    • CrustyOldGeezer

      When a liberal politician, it is NEVER good intentions.

      They have an agenda, and that agenda depends on POORLY EDUCATED people to vote.

      The left taking over the ‘education system’ 70 years ago with the intention of dumbing down the Voters before they were smart enough to understand INDOCTRINATION.

      THEY had a plan.

      The HONEST Americans ‘trusted’ government instead of watching every thing they got involved with.

  • Fred Smith

    WTF, wasn’t dodd-frank supposed to allow all these low income people a hand up in getting their own homes and on the road to a better life, or is this the new illegals and refugees we are now going to give freebies????

  • dclach

    Socialists like the mayor should begin by demonstrating their own willingness to live in these re-ghettoized neighborhoods. Not a token residence, with a back-up house in the hills to the west of Austin, but full-time. I’d bet neither he nor his supporters would be willing to live in such a place; in their world view, that’s the duty of “others”, the non-elite. Hypocrites !!!!

  • Alleged Comment

    FORCING oil and water to mix will benefit neither and create something that now has to be thrown away. People do not live well next to each other if it is of different cultures.

    You are doing this to build up RESENTMENT and cause another CIVIL WAR.

  • These fools need counseling and a real job. Rebuild the neighborhood with extremely low rate interest only equity loans provided the house is occupant owned. Loan must be repaid in full when owner moves out or owner title is changed.

  • Kenneth Huebner

    The founding fathers had it right when they required land ownership to vote. Why, because the knew then that the future of America depended on a well informed independence motivated morally focused voter.
    They knew that a voter block who could vote themselves the riches of the government to be bestowed to them by unscrupulous politicians without having to work for it would ultimately be the demise of their beloved country that they fought to create.

  • guymacher

  • jjmcl431

    i guess Austin wants to keep their ghetto areas intact and rebuild it so the free loading leeches have new stuff to loot and burn down the next time things don’t go their way.

  • Susan

    Yep. Agenda 21-30 to destroy civil areas and bus in all the vice and crime that destroys cities. Put in low cost housing so the drug dealers and addicts have a place to live and destroy the neighborhood and kidnap and rape the little kids. Vice makes slaves for the state. Stack the humans in like rats—little cells like they put the Chinese slaves who work for peanuts for the international psychopathic sodomites where they traffic kids and organs when they need an extra billion. Destroy family housing and make it too expensive and crowded to house decent family spaces.

  • Busdriver Bill

    Reading the enlightened positions below, it comes to mind that whereas what these “leftists” attempt to accomplish seems to always fail to our way of seeing it, it is actually succeeding from their point of view. We must never forget that the agenda of these miscreants is a failure of our system, leading to that “One World Dictatorship” they desire. There must be an evaluation as to just who would benefit from this agenda. Don’t be shy, and don’t quail at the result of your search, as it may lead you to Zionism, Bibi and company, and the International Banking Cartel. No, you wouldn’t be an “Anti-Semite,” were you to come to this conclusion, but rather a realist finally finding out what is really happening. Please investigate just who it was who started the “Marxist” revolution, and who were the leading figures in its early success – don’t overlook their ethnic and social origins, though it may make you feel uncomfortable. Truly the real victims are the honest good hearted Jews of the world who are tarred by the same brush. I truly have compassion for them. I just wish they’d run the scoundrels out of their world.

  • Behind every blade of grass!

    You never put ‘good money’ into something that people could care less about, and will use only as a flop-house, so they can push drugs while wallowing in their filthy dilapidated state of mind and existence!! Years ago, there were 4 to 6 (can’t remember for sure now) small houses built for low income people with nice yards put in, appliances, carpet, drapes .. the whole nine yards. Not only did these people have their mortgage nearly paid for them every month, so were all of their utilities! At the time, I was barely 18 and had never owned a home and couldn’t believe what they were being handed, while we were working our behinds off. About a year later, I drove by the same houses and didn’t even recognized them! The houses were turned in ‘chit-holes’, garbage everywhere, every lawn was dead, low-riding junkers pulled up into the yards, A/C’s running non-stop with the windows and doors wide open, babies who hadn’t had a bath for weeks playing right next to the busy street with no parent in site! I couldn’t believe that these families were allowed to take possession of these homes so they could tear them apart! What was even more disturbing was that the county “who was using the tax payers money – to give these people a really nice home to live in, didn’t have anything in their contracts to prevent this from happening”! If you read your loan docs, you will find where it states that the lender has the rights to “inspect their investment”, but I guess if you’re black that doesn’t apply! This has been going on WAY TOO LONG, I wouldn’t put ‘one nickel’ into anything for people like this!!

    • mica

      I have seen many communities such as this, but the inhabitants aren’t black. Some are, though some are also white, etc. Poverty knows no color.

  • Michelle Minze-Bryant

    How is it diverse, if everyone that moves in is a minority? I mean there are white low income and some that are a little above low income that would like to pay the price of low income. Just because you have the money to spend, doesn’t mean you want to spend it on your housing, maybe another vehicle for one of your kids, maybe you want another kid and you need money for that.

    The idea is racist in itself.

  • Alan404

    Who was it, one wonders, who pushed “gentrification” in the first place?

  • Bella Gray

    Exactly! The government has no business butting into these issues. First off welfare is an emergency stop gap, so people don’t starve, until they get on their feet. Welfare is not to afford people a higher lifestyle then they can afford. Can they afford the upkeep of these homes, no. Because they can’t they destroy these well to do neighborhoods. When welfare is taken away, then what happens to them, are they kicked out of these homes, as they should be?

    The poor cannot afford to do the same things as the rich people, so they will never run around as friends. Putting the two together does nothing but make the poor feel envy and isolated. We are a Republic. That means the government stays out of our business. Anyone who wants to live in a socialist or communist country should move to one. We are a REPUBLIC.

    Frankly I think the rich should sue those governments for putting poor people in their neighborhoods and driving down the value of their homes.

  • Bella Gray

    Let them. The rich will move out and the city will get stuck having to support ALL of the poor from the taxes of the poor. That should work out well for them, don’t you think? You can’t squeeze blood out a turnip, the same applies here.

  • Frank Gugino

    African Americans have got to stop claiming “vicitm hood” to gain public support and public funds. The laws passed by our government have removed many of the obstacles that held people of color back. Certain things I have noticed are,the things holding people of color back are, liberal groups “whoreing for votes” and the people of color THEMSELVES,by not insisting that their children buckle down,and get the quality education they have been SCREAMING FOR: for the past 20 or more years. In all fairness, these folks have not had the advantages that most white Americans had,and ,rightly so, fought for equal quality education. NOW YOU HAVE IT DO SOMETHING WITH IT,TAKE ADVANTAGE FOR WHAT YOU FOUGHT AND WON, Make sure your kids use the improved systems,available to obtain a quality education,so they can break the cycle of ignorance and poverty!!

  • rfrichey

    The part about the whole thing repeating itself is spot on. You cannot legislate equality unless you take up all the money and assets of everyone and re-distribute them equally. Even then the equality would not last long as the smarter, industrious ones would soon have more than the lazy or less intelligent ones, and that is where the process starts repeating itself. It wouldn’t take too many repeats before everyone became lazy and said what’s the point of me working? The redistribution may sound familiar as that’s what liberal socialist want, with of course the exception of themselves. Someone has to work and be productive or else there’s nothing there for anyone!

    It sounds more like the politicians want the wealthy, white conservative voters to move out so they can keep their power. It is more of a matter of their own sorry jobs than helping one single poor person.
