Social Engineering Bill In Senate Will Force You Into City

A social engineering bill to restrict residence in the suburbs and rural areas and force Americans into city centers has passed the United States Senate Banking Committee and is on the fast track to passage in the Senate. The bill is called the Livable Communities Act (SB 1619) and it was introduced by corruptocrat outgoing Senator Christopher Dodd (D-Conn.). It seeks to fulfill the United Nation’s plan Agenda 21, adopted at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in 1992 and signed onto by “New World Order” President George H.W. Bush. This bill is designed to destroy your community. According to the non-profit American Policy Center the bill http://www.personalliberty.com/conservative-politics/liberty/social-engineering-bill-in-senate-will-force-you-into-city/?eiid&rmid=2010_09_10_PLA&rrid=238507938

  • NO city is sustainable ~ in any sense. A city can not feed it's people. It can't provide energy or other goods. EVERYTHING has to come from outside. Any city would become a veritable nightmare within 24 hours of supplies/power interuption that lasted for more than a few hours. No food, no power, no water, no sewer, and not even remotely enough police to keep the sane people alive.

    Cities remind me of rat warrens, with endless bodies climbing over and around each other, deadly fights in every nook and cranny, and little individual holes to call home ~ ugh.

    The idiots that support this plan ~ and it has been proposed several times by different 'experts' for different reasons ~ all need to be locked up somewhere for the safety and sanity of the rest of us.

  • It's about LIMITING our choices - it is about putting us where THEY (gov't) want us. Giving grants to inner city people means that those us who would choose anything but cities to live are going to get screwed when we try to get a loan. It is something that a free country should never even think of. And it is not "some bogger" It belongs to Chris Dodd introduced in 2009. This goverment is scary.

  • It is most definitely about herding people into the cities and reducing suburb home ownership. It's about reducing the use of cars and gas consumption, especially for extremely low income families.


    PLEASE read between the lines folks, you have to with this administration, transparency is the last thing on their list...

  • Why because a blogger also posted about it??

    No, because you believe him. The blog and the article are the same. The bill itself (which you very obviously did not read) is about making grants available to developers who incorporate affordable, renewable technology and public transportation into their overall planning and design. Design a subdivision of McMansions in the middle of nowhere, no money for you. Design affordable condos for seniors with plans to integrate bus stops and easy access to centrally located commercial areas that don't require people to drive 10 miles to get milk, you get a grant from the government.

  • What do you call the Cap and Trade bill?!

    Mandatory. Unlike this bill which is for grant money that builders can VOLUNTARILY apply for if their project creates an environment where people of less means, especially and specifically the elderly, can meet all their daily needs independently and with less waste. The overall point of this bill is to make it easier for seniors to relocate to areas that allow them to live without having to drive and without depending on someone to take care of them.

  • You can have your rat warren Stacy. I've lived in them for the past 25 years because that is where the military stuck me. They stink ~ literally (meaning I can smell them from 30 miles away in spite of the exhaust fumes on the highway). They aren't sustainable, and if it weren't for people living outside of them (and far enough away from the pollution) and growing food, producing and shipping both raw and finished materials, those people you like to see and know would likely eat you within 72 hours if someone didn't haul food in to you.

    No amount of 'green' will clean up a city, and all the museums and culture won't sustain you. That comes from the rural areas. If you like it, you keep it. But don't support crud that would force others to move there OR make it harder to survive.
