The next step would be "people-free" cities.

Think how environmentally friendly THEY would be!

PS - China already has them.

.
That was the first thought that came to mind when I read the title of the thread.

It would be the best thing we could do “for the planet”

After they kill off/prevent all the people they need to with Obamacare they plan on moving the people to larger cities and making the middle of the country wildlands. They’re going to get the buffalo back and the wolves and humans won’t be allowed there.

Who are these accademics pushing for this congestion nonsense that not even the leftist mayor wants to see?

I do not know how one can associate good economy with making people walk. There is not even a plan for electric public transport infrastructure, just houses on the streets? This is ridiculous. What do they want? People to choke on each other to death?

The difficulty in getting around Portland, Oregon, and finding a place to park was exactly why I only shop at large malls outside the downtown area, AND have turned to catalogs and the internet for the majority of my shopping needs.

There is something wonderfully decadent in buying hard to find items while dressed in pajamas and fuzzy slippers!

Ever seen pictures of ‘cities’ with socialist/marxist/commie dictators running things?

Tall grey apartment buildings, parking lots with no cars because no one can afford cars, and public transportation (grey also).

Oh, and no kids playing outside. They are all in indoctrination centers learning to be good little serfs.

That is what is in store for those of us not in the ‘inner circle’ if Obama and friends have their way.

Liberals only believe in Car Free cities for the workers ...not for themselves or their special enclaves in places like Martha’s Vineyard, or Aspen where the Kennedys, Pelosis and Obamas will live and play.

The way our leaders are running this country all of the parking lots will be full and the streets will be empty.

No one will be able to afford gasoline to run their cars.

Reminds me of the 1981 movie, "The Last Chase" where cars were taken away and everyone was "ghettoed" into cities. There were people out in the hinterlands but they just existed outside society unless the powers that be got mad at them. California basically broke away from the union and started to have cars again and a former race car driver, with a teenaged sidekick, rebuilds his race car and races to California with an F-86 Sabre Jet (not F-4 Phantom) chasing him. If you want to see what they want to do, watch that movie.

Well, in "The Last Chase," most people used bikes, trans and subways, sort of what they want I guess. I did not see any "ghetto sleighs" (buses) in the movie, I do assume they have them. Seriously, I think if that should happen, I think there will be somebody, somewhere who might rise up and say something like "hey, why fight each other?" and turn the angry masses on those who want the New World Order. I just hope his/her motivations are with the intent of restoring us to a Constitutionally based system, or as close to it as can be, instead of being out for himself and/or pushing his/her own agenda. When you start screwing around with peoples' cars and freedom, you're asking for trouble.

Chinese cities are built for pedestrian traffic and very little cars, exactly the way our betters would like it here. You live in an apartment building next door to your workplace, there are 7-11 sized grocery stores on nearly every block, and most of your day to day needs are met.

Somehow I don'r see Michelle Obama living like this.

And you can bet the Chinese elites don't either.

But you're absolutely right, the liberal elites push for mass transport because it allows for control. All these patriots in the US running around uncontrolled in vehicles gives them nervous spells.

LOL! So what would be left is a people free city as earners escape the prohibitive taxation to pay for all of the public transportation required to make up for the lack of personal conveyance.

Gas tax revenue would disappear overnight, leaving a gaping hole in the budget and the city officials scrambling about to find a new way to tyrannize the earners without scaring them off completely.

The public transportation union employees, who figured they were "God" before but know it now, strike regularly for new benefits and raises, bringing the city to it's knees in chaos at every opportunity and proclaiming themselves the hero when they finally return to work.

Sounds like a great plan there, worthy of Chavez, it is...

Do they parrot the pundits who bemoan the radicalizing
of the modern GOP?

It makes me laugh. Their job has ALWAYS been to come
up with dumb ideas like this one. Our job has ALWAYS
been to put the skids on those ideas. Yet, we are the
radicals......
