Burn Down the Suburbs?
Not exactly, but Obama is already working to get rid of them.
Editors Note: This article is adapted from Spreading the Wealth: How Obama is Robbing the Suburbs to Pay for the Cities, by Stanley Kurtz, from Sentinel HC.
President Obama is not a fan of Americas suburbs. Indeed, he intends to abolish them. With suburban voters set to be the swing constituency of the 2012 election, the administrations plans for this segment of the electorate deserve scrutiny. Obama is a longtime supporter of regionalism, the idea that the suburbs should be folded into the cities, merging schools, housing, transportation, and above all taxation. To this end, the president has already put programs in place designed to push the country toward a sweeping social transformation in a possible second term. The goal: income equalization via a massive redistribution of suburban tax money to the cities.
Obamas plans to undercut the political and economic independence of Americas suburbs reach back decades. The community organizers who trained him in the mid-1980s blamed the plight of cities on taxpayer flight to suburbia. Beginning in the mid-1990s, Obamas mentors at the Gamaliel Foundation (a community-organizing network Obama helped found) formally dedicated their efforts to the budding fight against suburban sprawl. From his positions on the boards of a couple of left-leaning Chicago foundations, Obama channeled substantial financial support to these efforts. On entering politics, he served as a dedicated ally of his mentors anti-suburban activism.
The alliance endures. One of Obamas original trainers, Mike Kruglik, has hived off a new organization called Building One America, which continues Gamaliels anti-suburban crusade under another name. Kruglik and his close allies, David Rusk and Myron Orfield, intellectual leaders of the anti-sprawl movement, have been quietly working with the Obama administration for years on an ambitious program of social reform.

Agenda 21. Plus democrat control over you. Urban areas have the takers and their wealth transfer programs. I suggest if they force you back into the cities you go galt and stop earning income. Yes that means saving now, selling off crap you don’t need now. Learning how to barter, find good deals on Craigslist.
I traded an item I paid 120 for a couple years ago, it’s value went up to about 300 since then, and i traded for something I needed that was worth 500.
If you are curious to see our intended future, go to Google Earth and look at the massive apartment blocks in any Soviet city. Equal housing for all.
It was more subtle in the past, but has been going on for much longer than you realize.
Thanks for rehashing what most of us know.
I wasn't talking about the roots of socialist beliefs, it's a known fact that they have been implementing their agenda from the very beginning way back in middle of the last century, accelerating in the sixties.
It's not the sane people that have a deaf ear and blind eye to their activities.
It seems like it is you, with your concern about people not wearing shirts and a superior attitude blinding you.
We've been on the front lines for a long time.
Thanks for joining in.
Reminds me of what they have tried here in the Ozarks in the last 20-30 years.
In the mid 90’s it was called Ozarks Biosphere Reserve and then they tried again just a few years ago but just renamed it.
Guess they didn’t get the message the first few times. A search about Ozarks Biosphere or Ozarks Land grab is eye opening.
This is behind the elimination of “family farms” as they are bought out by large conglomerates, and melded into mega-farms, or to put it plainly “collectives”.
The whole reason is control. It’s much easier to control the sheeple if they are in centralized FEMA camps which comprise complete cities. They are then totally dependent upon the government for heat, light, food, ..... everything!
Not really. Bumbamba awakened and motivated the white devil in each of us.
UN Agenda 21.
Exactly. BO hates Americans. Hates the fact that Americans have to freedom to choose where they want to live. He has got to go. He is so clearly un-American. I get really angry when I see Obama/Biden 12 stickers. Those people are just plain idiots.
Yes, massive apartment blocks for us and palaces for BO, the Mooch, Dirty Harry, Pelosi, Rahm and all the evil Godless liberals in the USA.
I heard a couple of interviews with Kurtz during my drive out here. It is something we can look forward too (sarc) during a 2nd Obasma admin. unless he is defeated.
Not having the power and authority hasn't stopped him from doing anything else, he just writes an executive order and the eunuchs in the Republican leadership just yawn.
Democrat solution to the suburbs: confiscate all the Republicans’ houses and move swarms of inner city Democrats into them.
I bought the Kindle version yesterday and reading it ..
That's exactly what's going on in Arizona. HUD relocation programs are moving people from the ghettos as far away as Cleveland and Detroit to vacant/foreclosed home in the metro Phoenix area. This has been going on at a very rapid pace over the last couple of years.
How is it working out? Has the crime rate moved upward, or not?
All Obama has to do is bring famine to our country and place the federal food distribution outlets where ever he wants us to go.
I'll give it some thought Crotchety.
