Posted on 10/18/2010 11:34:54 AM PDT by Nachum
The U.S. government is stepping in with millions of taxpayer dollars to create affordable places for Americans to work and live. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development last week announced nearly $100 million in new grants "to support more livable and sustainable communities across the country." Forty-five regions will receive various amounts of the funding through the new initiative, which aims to connect housing with jobs, schools and transportation. Regions that embrace sustainable communities will have a built-in competitive edge in attracting jobs and private investment,

The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
government is not the solution. it is the problem
IF they’re so bleeping sustainable then why do they need funding?
“Sustainable Communites” = more welfare communities.
Okay GOP, a stop has to be put to this asap.
Definition: (adjective) unsustainable
Why do they need funding? To shut out those who are not leftists and who are in the Obama created poverty lines. You vote wrong and you can’t get in , its the same with the sustainable jobs and investment, they are all outside of the capitalist free market, socialiized businesses, politically correct businesses supported by the left.
The capitalist economy will not set up “sustainable” communities. This is the establishment of a liberal fascist closed political, social , economic sysyem.
I wouldn’t be caught dead or buried in one. I will be with the guys outside their fences shooting at them in order to destroy their nationalist socialist Utopia, totalitarian society.
Ok, I get it. I get to work hard, pay my high taxes so some other schmuck can live and work in a “sustainable” community where everything is built for ease and convenience?
What happens to the rest of us who have to fund the sustainable communities? What sort of communities will we get to live in once all the funding goes to these Obamavilles?
“Sustainable communities” are never economically so.
Sustainable is code word for taxpayer waste...
Cities like Detroit come to mind. They have destroyed it.
Sustainable Communites = a group of familys that have at least one wage earner each, that keep their own money, and decide community priorities without governmental interference.
Wouldn’t a ‘sustainable community’ be defined as a capitalistic community? A place where each can work, produce a product or service that benefits someone else, that someone is willing to pay for? A place where all can succeed, based on their work ethic and merit?
Are we to believe that Obama is going to let capitalism free in these communities so they truly can be successful and ‘sustainable’?
I drilled down through the links supplied by HUD and never could find out how you qualify for this grant, nor what you really have to spend the money on. I couldn’t find any of the winning applicant’s applications, either. What did they do to win their part of the grant? How are they going to spend their grant money? I could not find it. I would not be surprised if the money just goes into corporate pockets while they pay some $25k/year flunky to oversee the spending of a few dollars to make it all look good.
Simple answer. The idea is to make it impossible for you to live and work in anything other than a sustainable community. Sheeple are easier to control when they are grouped together like sardines.
They plan on really big ones. They will make it hard for you to get gasoline, vehicles and jobs if you live out in the boonies.
This is the plan. Those rolling hills and countrysides will be only there for the use of the ruling class.
Exactly what part of the following don't you understand?
Stop the spending and stop giving away money we don't have!

United Nation’s Agenda 21 Program for Sustainable Development
“Sustainable” is much more insidious than that.
You lose your freedom to travel.
You lose your right to private property.
You lose your freedom to use energy.
You lose your freedom to grow food.
Go here for some details on “Agenda 21” from the UN. “Sustainable development” is simply a code phrase for the UN controlling all land use.
Oh great, now we’re into building gulags!
Let’s see, we can name them Obamaville; Obamaton; Hussein Hillside; Barack Barricks
Couldn’t get this post out of my mind; then I read WebFocus post about banks and hedge funds. Sent this:

From Business Insider Article:
The funds assets under management dropped by about half. (SOURCE US) And maybe - a failed New Mexico community that DE Shaw planned in 2006 and will put them in $100 million of debt.
Good grief, more ‘housing projects.’ It’s been proven the don’t work. They get built, the inhabitants trash ‘em, and they get imploded. Nice waste of money, there, Obozo!
NOT IN MY BACKYARD!!!
A half dozen cardboard boxes under an interstate overpass would also constitute a “sustainable community”.
Okay, where’s that hilarious photo of the trashy campers/trailers all piled up like ‘condos’ — love that pic!
Digging into the Buy-a-vote ‘Stim’ slush fund right before an election. Rush Limbaugh was right [as we knew he would be].
