One thought on “What’s on America’s Mind With Emerson Drake Wednesday 8/14 at 8PM

  1. This is probably THE most important meeting of the year to attend! This writer
    has really done his homework regarding the Planning Department’s “PLAN FOR DESTRUCTION OF THE MIDDLE CLASS”! People who have worked hard to seek and live in the neighborhood of their choice DESERVE TO LIVE IN PEACE THERE.

    The city intends to “integrate” neighborhoods with the mix of middle and low class people of different incomes until the percentage of integration TO THEIR RULES AND STANDARDS is met. Who in the hell is this group of city employees to make these choice for us and make these demands??!

    We are not school children of the 1960’s where the government said “we don’t have enough black’s in this school or enough whites in that school. So, WE ARE GOING TO HAVE FORCED BUSSING OF STUDENTS TO ALL THESE DIFFERENT SCHOOLS TO ACHEIVE THE MIX OF RACES THAT WE SAY IS ADEQUATE”!! Yeah, the city got its mix alright and got a lot of attitudes by all involved at that righteous endeavor. Now, the City of Modesto wants to do the same thing only with the freedoms of adults?! MR. MAYOR AND CITY COUCIL AND CITY PLANNING DEPARTMENT HERE THIS: WE ARE NOT CHILDREN YOU CAN PUSH AROUND! WE HAVE STAKED OUR LIFE’S SAVING’S INTO THE HOMES WE HAVE PURCHASED HERE IN THESE NEIGHBORHOOD AND WORK HARD TO KEEP THEM! SO, DON’T CHOOSE TO REDUCE OUR STANDARD OF LIVING BY SHOVING SECTION 8 HOUSING DOWN OUR COLLECTIVE THROATS!

    The city has a problem: the lack of money. Hay, we had a recession, people lost homes, so no taxes are being paid. When I don’t have spending money, I don’t pay myself as much and cut out discretionary spending. The City won’t do that. Their solution is more taxes. So, they build a bunch of little box houses. The City gets spending money and the DEVELOPERS DROOL AS THEY LINE THEIR POCKETS while they squeeze sub contractors and cut corners in construction or BUY OFF INSPECTORS TO SAVE MONEY!! But, that’s another story.

    This meeting needs to be attended by everybody in Modesto, Salida, Wood Colony, even Riverbank: they’re thinking of absorbing a piece of their undeveloped land down the road.
