It’s not a European village, but my neighborhood is single family homes on half acre lots, and to the west and south of my house, there is forest. But within a mile or so of my house, there is: two grocery stores (one inexpensive, one upscale), two coffee shops, an ice cream shop, a few pizzarias, a Home Depot, Kohl’s, Costco, Target, and a few chain restaurants.

Walkable suburbs exist. In fact, I can think of quite a few around my town. Just have to look.

Stay with other unarmed Libs in cities, where low-income can sit next to Dem yuppies....it’s all good.

Now stay the F away from me, Commie Greentard.

There are some towns that put in restrictions on big box stores to try and support their M&P shops. I know Davis, CA to this day will not let Wal-Mart move in and the town has a great downtown with some unique shops and places to eat at and what supports it as well is it is a college town.

There is a different town I have family which is Jackson OH and they have a super Wal-Mart but go through their downtown and it is pretty well dead except for a state liquor store. I also been to some small towns in Kansas and Wal Mart is the only game and nothing else. Like Hays KS for example.

> Importantly, when some city sets up a “downtown” district to feature small, local businesses, giant corporation franchises are there in a heartbeat to take advantage of the opportunity as well. But in the process they poison it, because they strip any local color away for their mass produced products made with minimum wage workers.
