If low income workers are needed and there is no low income housing for them ...

Then, the people who created a situation with no low income housing might have a problem. They may not have low income workers and might have to suffer for that, or they might have to pay to make those people not low income in order to have them around.

In the end, you can nearly always figure out why things cost what they do, and it almost always comes back to government tampering at some level.

Nothing communist about that.

He's talking about zoning laws. Which exist in almost every city.

Except places like Houston. And they're currently seeing the downside of that.


the opening poster believes anti fascists to be actual fascists, it's not hard to fathom that their tiny mind would get drawn into more fake news from an ultra conservative website.

Actually, I think the OP called a communist a communist.

Yet nobody seems to be able to quote anything that supports your assessments.





Keep up the good work Clyde !!

True that.


Shortly after completing graduate school at Columbia, he was hired to work as a political organizer by the Quixote Center in Maryland


And what was the Quixote Center up to?


A leader at the Center described U.S. efforts in Nicaragua as a "policy of terrorism." Some critics accused the Center of following a Marxist agenda and the United States Department of the Treasury investigated allegations that Quixote Center had smuggled guns


A further example of De Blasio's general political leanings...


De Blasio was an ardent supporter of the ruling socialist government, the Sandinista National Liberation Front.


And who were the Sandinista's, also known as the FSLN?


The FSLN overthrew Anastasio Somoza Debayle in 1979, ending the Somoza dynasty, and established a revolutionary government in its place.[8][9] Following their seizure of power, the Sandinistas ruled Nicaragua from 1979 to 1990, first as part of a Junta of National Reconstruction. Following the resignation of centrist members from this Junta, the FSLN took exclusive power in March 1981. They instituted a policy of mass literacy, devoted significant resources to health care, and promoted gender equality,[10] but came under international criticism for human rights abuses, mass execution and oppression of indigenous peoples.


And, apparently, Mayor Bill came by his Communistic philosophies honestly.


his parents faced accusations of Communism during the 1950s


Comrade Bill

Low income housing in most cases is totally not needed because those people will live in other areas. There are very few communities where it so expensive that it is practically impossible for someone with low income to commute. In Manhattan, those who can't afford it typically would move to the outer boroughs. Does it suck? Yes, but that is the choice individuals make for staying.

With that said, there are situations where I can see where government may need to step in to provide assistance. My family has a vacation home on Martha's Vineyard, a little island off the coast of Massachusetts. It is a very wealthy area (a favorite vacation spot for Presidents). It would be difficult for firemen, police, and teachers to afford to live on the island. The island government does offer some assistance as they know certain jobs are needed and it isn't a situation where someone can just choose to live in a cheaper area given it is an island.

Well this is how not to politics. It's everyone's right to be able to own their own land despite how much of Daddies money some folk "earn" to afford to buy it.

My grandfather built his family from war bonds and now some of the descendants of his time are trying to buy my country which is an insult. China is starting to plague Australia because the overpopulation and the rising reliance on foreign minerals due to the rising middle class. China will implode for those reasons and despite their so called neutrality. they need to make a choice-either back us up or back off.

This dude must have hit the crack pipe too hard or something. This is insane speech from a supposed American. Not surprising though coming from a gubment lap dog. One set of rules for us and another for the elite. It's tough being a left leaning centrist because I have to be accused of supporting clowns like this every time I support anything considered "liberal".
Hey Rainbow you hit the nail on the head. I bet he has a nice big mansion home on a large estate lot while he wants the rest of us to suffer in sardine apartments. The American way is upwardly mobile not downwardky govt controlled. And he's darn right the American system is designed for free market and private property.

Anyone ever noticed how the living arrangements in typically communist countries featured those ugly nondescript apartment complexes ? Yah it was sure in the Soviet Union.......
Now comes Sustainable Development ala duplexes and apartments and the phasing out of single family homes because affluence is "unsustainable". People should check out ICLEI in the cities and the new "communitarianism" of the UN brought to us by the elite Club of Rome and featuring bike paths because cars are also too affluent.

I was homeless for 6 years and your assumptions are the faulty ones.
Me and my fellow homeless didn't do drugs because we had no money to buy them with.
When we did have money we bought food or a warm bed to sleep in. We didn't leave the area because whats the point?
Business do not hire homeless people so leaving to find cheaper homes doesn't work. Nothing is cheaper than 0 and 0 was what I had to spend on rent. I come across more "nutjobs" here on ats than I ever did while homeless.


My brother was homeless. He was an alcoholic, and also a drug user. He had tons of help offered to him, by family members and friends, and he stole from people, trashed their homes, and didn't want to work and improve his situation. He put himself on the street, and he kept himself there. Plenty of others just like him, too. He preferred to have someone else take care of him, and didn't think he should have to work to buy things he needed. With no job, he still managed to be drunk and/or high on something. He wasn't atypical. "Was", because he walked out in front of a car, and died.

This mayor doesn't care about homeless.
What are you basing that on? A bit presumptive... Deblasio has instituted the most ambitious ten year plan for new affordable housing of any Mayor in the US. Bet you didn't know that did you.

www.nyc.gov...

See my post above this one for more background, legally and other initiatives he is spearheading regarding anti-homelessness.


He doesn't even respect property rights. That's not a man that cares about someone being homeless. :Affordable" to whom? Who pays the difference? Who doesn't qualify? Whose neighborhood is ruined by subsidized housing? His attitudes reek of communism/socialism.

Thanks, but no thanks. Venezuela is a great example of the failures of such systems.
