We do not support the death of children living in slum conditions…
We do not support graft and slums when we believed for years in the honesty of our Democratic Party to solve these things. We do not support Hillary or Bill Clinton being involved with such taint, or such people after all the years and good work they did for the Democratic Party.
It is imperative that we have a President at this time who is willing to take on the graft and corruption that exists in the infrastructure of this country.
We must have urban renewal programs such as those that existed in the 1970′s, in order to stave off further collapse of the American psyche. For Westerners to see what inner city conditions look like in Chicago is a disgrace. Not only for the Democratic Party, but for Republican Party and Americans across the board. I refer you to the piece I wrote on FDR’s “New Deal” and why I feel this might be a model that is necessary at this time to counteract such blight. Here is a referral to a book that can give insight into this problem, immediately:
I support John McCain for President of this country because I believe he will look to the heart of his hero Theodore Roosevelt in order to solve the problems in the country. He has the stomach and strength of the WESTERN soul behind him.
For years (since Reagan) I have been a Democrat. How naive of of me. Had I known that they have done nothing in places like inner city Chicago? Nothing?
The time to be reforming at present is on our own soil, right in the urban core. It is disgraceful to see this.
What might an urban renewal look like? Across all the blighted areas in the inner cities of our United States?
First, addressing the salvage of empty buildings that can be conserved and renovated as housing. Second, the planting of trees and gardens, as well as the installation of waterworks like fountains which will attract birds and beneficial insects, as well as bees and butterflies. We face colony collapse disorder with our bee population at present. It is imperative that we build an organic model. Projects like gardens give the soul beauty, and harmony as well as teaching a vocation. It is possible to create something out of this ruined blight, because the land is there already.
Second, introduce vocational training as well as the study of the Arts, Humanities, Literature and Music in the schools. How can one expect to have hope in the midst of blight on that level?
I will never support a Democrat such as the one shown in the videos above. His conduct is shameful and disgraceful to me. Hence I put my hope into John McCain and businesswoman Carly Fiorina to put her small business model to work here in our own country.
What’s that old expression? You can give a man a fish, or you can give him a fishing pole and teach him to fish, and then he’ll have fish for life?
This could be a part of a Conservation Corps, Teddy style!
You can give people trees, plants, seeds and flowers and teach them how to build raised beds so they can help produce food in these blighted places. Flowers are poetry. So are ripe tomatoes. Here is an article on raised bed gardening as practiced out West. It’s only a matter or transferring the style to climates in the East. Here is another view of that model, from the Los Angeles Times, this time a French potager style.
Here is a MODEL FOR THIS PLAN, from OPENLANDS.
You can hire men to rewire and renovate old buildings, rather than tearing them down.
That is what the Progressive Green movement is about, for me. I think it fits with the New Republicans. I can’t see how any women wouldn’t be disgusted by the inner city imagery above. It is tragic. Tragic to the American soul and psyche.
For all of the millions in tax dollars paid into this country why does it look like the above in Chicago?
For all of the millions raised for this election by the Democratic Party how many packets of seeds, raised beds, trees, shrubs, cans of paint, and electrical wiring could have been bought? How many jobs might have been created to address this problem of deep infrastructural ROT? And deep SOUL sickness?
