Skip to comments.Looky here(Agenda 21 ALERT), IBM report: Omaha's westward growth cause for concern

Omaha should cut down on suburban sprawl, restructure incentives for inner-city development and do a better job sharing data between government departments, according to a new report from IBM business consultants.
The city was one of 33 communities that received a grant last year for a study. A team of five consultants visited Omaha in October to assess the city's planning and development efforts and offer their recommendations.
Monday, the city released the consultants' final report.

Agenda 21 is right. They want to reduce “urban sprawl”, herd us all into cities & control the masses. 1930s Jewish ghettos, anyone?? Same concept!
Read this to see what IBM(and MOST other “American” “Companies” are all about($$$$):
Of course Omaha could grow East into Iowa I suppose but somehow that just wouldn’t seem right. Omaha belongs in Nebraska.
Well if they stopped making economic policy which forced people off the farms they wouldnt have an urban sprawl problem.
Most of what is “Omaha” isn’t even Omaha. They cannibalize every town in sight. Papillion, LaVista, Millard, Ralston, Elkhorn, Bellevue and on and on.
Nebraska has a “carniverous” “law” is which Large Cities(Omaha, Lincoln) can EAT smaller cities. Omaha did this in 1917(Benson) in 1971(Millard) and in 2010(or so)(Elkhorn). Omaha just wants more Real Estate for Property Tax purposes BUT they(Omaha) can’t take care of what they have(The Streets REALLY SUCK)! The reason I care about Omaha is that I live in W. Iowa and around here when Omaha sneezes the ENTIRE Region catches a COLD!
NOT TRUE, According the NE Law they cannot cross county lines(Ralston, La Visa, Papillion and Bellevue are in Sarpy County).
I am 100% against Agenda 21; however, sprawl isn’t good for anyone. Causes traffic problems, no sense of community in places filled with $300k plastic houses that all look the same, commercialization of big business chains and crushing of the existing rural and small business culture, high misery index, and influx of “swing” voters with no God or principles. Not my cup of tea... if I am going to live in the suburbs, I’ll live close to town in an established neighborhood with character. If I’m going to live out of town, I want land, guns, and 4 wheelers.
Correct, and those towns do have their own incorporation, but it is the appearance when you SEE “Omaha” that it is one big sprawling city.
I should have qualified that when I wrote the first time.
Talk about “sprawl” is so 1998.
“those towns do have their own incorporation” Elhorn did to, HOWEVER it was COMPLETELY w/in Douglas County NE(Omaha) so Omaha “Ate” it.
Ralston is a small suburb (surrounded by Omaha city limits) that was not annexed by Omaha because they stay in debt to keep Omaha from annexing them. Smart way to keep them away. I have friends in Elkhorn who were angry that they were annexed. Omaha just wanted the taxes they bring.
We are looking to buy some land outside of Omaha, but hard to find and really expensive. We thought about Iowa because taxes are so much lower. We looked at some wooded land, but waited to long. It's time to get out of the cities.
BUT Nebraskans REALLY LOVE thier “Unicameral” even though Lincoln SWIVES(look it up) them(Nebraskans) on taxes each and every year! I live in Council Bluffs(because of NEs’ Property Taxes) and work on OffuttAFB so I pay 2 states’ income taxes(Iowa and Nebraska) every year for the “privelage”.
The last time I was in Omaha someone told me that the river moved around and some of Iowa is now in Nebraska or something like that. Or maybe it’s the other way around.
When Detoilet, Michigan went “Full Socialism” and suffered the consequent devolution into Third World status, the rest of America continued on.
Any big city which wants to survive must be forced to so do without government interference and without egregious thievery from the Big Sh*ty Trough Feeders being allowed to tax surrounding areas.
If the Big Sh*ty fails, let it. If the Urban Ferals clustered in the Big Sh*ty riot, said riot can be contained by a cordon around said Big Sh*ty.
Temporary interruption of water, power, and sewerage will soon bring about desired change in even the most Turd World minded Urban Feral population.
The real question is “Does the Constitution or Communism/Socialism rule?”
What Obama is trying to do is force independent Americans off their private lands/homes and drive them into the Big Sh*ty where they are hopelessly dependent of Big Government. Remember what Stalin did to the Ukranian farmers? Remember what the English ‘Nobility’ did to the Scots and the Irish?
Obama is trying to do the same thing to America. Imagine a future with you and yours stuck in a Big Sh*ty, disarmed, outnumbered, and at the mercy of the large Urban Feral populations surrounding you.
America arose to wealth, power, and plenty, on the freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution. Detroit devolved into Detoilet when it deliberately abandoned the premises so elegantly and simply defined in the Constitution. Detroit decided to violate property rights and allowed theft so long as an elected official or a union leader did the stealing.
The end result is clear for all to see, a Detroit wasteland which looks like a Turd World war zone.
To allow the alleged ‘needs’, even the ‘wants’, of the Trough Feeders to be satisfied by taxing the productive is raw, “In Yer Face” communism/socialism. If “Big Sh*ty” dwellers need anything, let them pay for it themselves - do not allow them to tax others to support their treasonous collectivism/socialism.
Otherwise, your area can come to resemble Detoilet Michigan.
Communism was tried in America at the Plymouth Colony. It resulted in what their elected leader, Governor William Bradford, called “The Starving Winter”. He further told why that terrible event occurred - “This community was nearly our undoing.” Note Bradford’s word “community”.
William Bradford used community as we use the word “communism”. The word “communism” was a tern derived from “community” by a Communist because the term “community-ism” was laughable.
The results, when applied to Detroit, were not at all funny.
Communism caused Detroit to become Detoilet. Learn from history or condemn you and yours to a Detoilet level of existence.
Flush communism. Now
Flush Obama and his communism. Now. That means impeach Obama, now.
The Missouri River does that sometimes and REALLY screws up the state borders(think Carter Lake, Iowa).
Glenn Beck’s book, Agenda 21, paints the exact same picture. It’s fictitous, but it illustrates life exactly as you describe it. Free people, farmers, forced off thier land & corraled into the Big Sh*ty where they are housed, fed, and even clothed. Forced dependence.
We must fight back
