Gary is expected to be the Obama administration's "national model" for urban revitalization, according to U.S. Sen. Evan Bayh.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has established a "Gary Project" that will seek to address issues of urban decay and foster economic development in the city, including demolition of vacant properties, according to Bayh, D-Ind.

Wait, no one knows where the money is going now, so it won't matter.
Guess it is just payback for stealing the election in Indiana.

Central planning didn’t work in the USSR and it won’t work here.
Isn’nt the definition of insanity doing the same things...over and over again.....expecting different results....maybe the Housing an Urban Development screwballs think they’ve got their mental models properly “tuned” for this round of “waste the taxpayers money” game...
Make Gary an enterprise zone with zero personal and business taxes and it might work. Run it with ACORNonomics and it will remain a hell-hole.
When the whole borrow/print and spend house of cards collapses, it’ll be cities like Gary that’ll be the first to see what’s euphamistically called the ‘breakdown in civility’ when the River of Goodies dries up...
In that sense, yes, Gary will probably be a ‘model’ for the rest of Urban America.....
Say, Mr Citizen, we’re from the Urban Renewal Project. About that house you own there...
Just what the nation needs, another mortgage/guarantied bogus long term investment scam. All the crooks are in place and Fanny Mae and Freddy Mac to launch yet another massive theft conspiracy for us to pay for.
We have to do something to get rid of these crooks in the WH; FBI CIA? Isn't there ANYONE honest left in these places that can bring this Usurper down and put a stop to these traitors sending this nation into massive debt that will take a thousand years to pay?

My sweetie is an educator based in Chicago.
Last year, part of his “territory” (when he worked for a private provider of tutorial services) was Gary, Indiana.
Keep in mind, he used to be a far leftwing nutjob that I have successfully converted to the “right” side. He had Bill Ayers as a professor in college and unfortunately, he worked with Father Pflager on community volunteer projects. (He now teaches in a private Catholic school on the southside of Chicago. Happier in his job that at any point in his career.)
One evening he walked in a room of educators, in preparation for a meeting. He said nothing, merely organizing documents, as these folks DEEPLY resented the involvement of private providers into their little fiefdom, via NCLB. So he was basically a fly on the wall.
He couldn’t wait until he got home to call me. He called me the second he got on the interstate, via cellphone:
“Sweetie.....these people are NUTS. The words I heard in that room were Reverend Wright...squared! No wonder these kids are so f*cked up!”
There was a time when he would have thought I was nuts. heh
If it is such a great place maybe he and Susan should spend their summers there.
Birthplace of the late and most popular pedophile in the world.

The wife teaches in an inner-city school that has been over-run by Black Panther-connected teachers. Even the black female principal is afraid of them. And the LAST thing they care about is teaching kids!!!
Interesting picture. Where is it from?
Looks like a re-creation of an English Iron-Age village?
