Was sent this in response to Sect 8 housing (it makes good points...)

a) Section 8, or a similar program, subsidizes private rentals

b) The projects

Section 8 disperses the poor among neighborhoods

The projects create concentration camps for the poor.

Perhaps you prefer to exterminate the poor for being poor. As long as the gas chamber and crematorium is Not In your Back Yard

Take your pick, NIMBY

I appreciate the direct honesty, without the usual comments about my mom etc,LOL. So what you are suggesting or inferring would be the best solution is to GIVE the peace the tranquility that hard working people struggle to get, for nothing? On what planet did anyone think this was going to be accepted? We can envision the billboards now; "WHY WORK...get there for free".

We all get to choose how many steps in life we take, no one tells us how many we must take. I earned my home and my yard because I (&people like me) chose to take a bunch of steps.....I bought it because I worked hard AND all my neighbors have "skin in the game" too because they worked hard for their homes as well.

Maybe a different paradigm is in order since liberal thinking since the 1964 civil rights act, has only made the situation worse and worse and worse......

Personal history.....you can't take the poor-by-choice out of the environment and expect that they will thrive in an orderly, safe environment. It simply doesn't work as doesn't feeding the animals at the zoo. People do not change....
