Amsterdam to create
´scum villages´

Telegraph [UK], by Bruno Waterfield

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 12/4/2012 6:02:19 AM

Amsterdam is to create "Scum villages" where nuisance neighbours and anti-social tenants will be exiled from the city and rehoused in caravans* or containers with "minimal services" under constant police supervision. Holland´s capital already has a special hit squad of municipal officials to identify the worst offenders for a compulsory six month course in how to behave. Social housing problem families or tenants who do not show an improvement or refuse to go to the special units face eviction and homelessness. Eberhard van der Laan, Amsterdam´s Labour mayor, has tabled the £810,000 plan to tackle 13,000 complaints of anti-social

Sounds like a good idea.

Isn´t Amsterdam the city that has legalized nearly every behavior that leads to scummy people choosing to go there? How ironic.

FYI, OP, we prefer the term ´´mobile homes´´ or ´´pre-manufacutured housing.´´ The opposite would be ´´site-built´´ housing.

I don´t see this as even mildly amusing.

If you think the Left can´t do this here, think again. With the Mulatto Marxist in power, we could easily be looking at a time when, if you utter the wrong word --something unPC, you could be herded into a "village" and kept there.

How soon we forget history. It happened to people of the "wrong heritage" less than 100 years ago. How many million of them were put to death?

I don´t agree that this is a good thing. A team of ´harassment directors´ are going to gather reports on neighbors. Will they then turn over their findings to a government agency who will determine what behaviors are ´anti-social´? Will the accused ´anti-social´ get a trial or will they simply be convicted by the numbers of complaints?

I´m sorry but, if this were happening here, could you imagine home owners associations giving ´anti-social´ neighbor reports to Homeland Security?

Those northern Europeans are such control freaks. Their permissive culture creates the very problems that are currently annoying them. Instead of addressing the permissiveness, they create "solutions" that are nanny state-like.

Keep in mind that once you have this proposed system of exile, it can theoretically be applied to everyone for whatever reason. It´s just a skip from being thought of as a nuisance neighbor to being thought of as an undesirable for whatever particular reason. Beware the sugar with the evil taste.

What´s the difference between these "scum villages" and jails, other than a jury trial?

The tough approach taken by Mr van der Laan appears to jar with Amsterdam´s famous tolerance for prostitution and soft drugs but reflects hardening attitudes to routine anti-social behaviour that falls short of criminality.

Remember the old saying that a conservative is a liberal who´s been mugged. The Dutch apparently have had their fill of liberalism when it comes to their own back yards being soiled.

I don´t blame them. Miscreants shouldn´be be permitted to chase law-abiding, solid citizens out of their own neighborhoods. It´s the miscreants who should be forced to leave.

It was a while ago that I heard a good idea -- put serial nuisances on Alcatraz. Don´t lock them up, just put them there and let them do as they please. Fly in food and medical help when needed and let them bother each other instead of bothering the rest of us.

The widow of Apple Computer founder Steve Jobs is ´ready´ for Hillary Clinton, and she´s written a hefty check to prove it. Laurene Powell Jobs has given $25,000 to the ´Ready for Hillary´ super PAC, a political campaign organization that has raised more than $4 million to lay the groundwork needed for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton´s expected White House run. Sharon Elghanayan Corzine, the wife of former New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine, also put $25,000 on the table. So did gay-rights philanthropist Tim Gill, who created the one-time desktop publishing software powerhouse Quark Xpress.

A grinning, chuckling Kathleen Sebelius stood alongside President Barack Obama on Friday morning, accepting praise that has eluded her throughout Obamacare´s troubled early months.

It is not known if the author had completed a first draft, and it will now be up to her family to decide what, if anything, of the project will be published. The working title raises the wonderful prospect that Townsend planned for her hero to be romantically reunited with Pandora, object of his affection since

WASHINGTON--Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is resigning from the Obama administration after the rocky rollout of President Barack Obama´s signature health care law, a White House official said Thursday. Her resignation comes just one week after the end of the first enrollment period for the Obamacare law. While the opening weeks of the rollout were marred by website woes, the administration rebounded strongly by enrolling more than 7 million people in the new insurance marketplaces. Sebelius´ resignation following her five-year tenure in Obama´s Cabinet comes as the White House seeks to rebound from the politically damaging launch of the health

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius said Thursday that 7.5 million Americans had enrolled in Obamacare insurance coverage by the time the dust settled on April 1, but reused to tell senators how many of them were already covered before the law took full effect. The question is an important one: Republicans claim that most of those who signed up are Americans who lost their existing policies in 2013 because they didn´t meet the Affordable Care Act´s strict and sometimes bewildering minimum standards. President Barack Obama promised that his signature insurance overhaul law would dramatically reduce the ranks of the

One week ago, President Obama was celebrating. 7.1 million Americans had signed up to his landmark law. Today however, it’s the same old story. Once again, Obamacare is critical. The latest crisis? For Americans who don’t yet possess health insurance, the US health care market is now effectively on lockdown until the year’s end. Yes, you heard that right. [Snip] The flowing narrative is all too clear--didn’t sign up by the President’s shifting deadlines? Take a hike. This latest incident speaks volumes about Obamacare--a law that was born in arrogant partisanship and is now defined by utter absurdity.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water. Cliven Bundy and his

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

The deportation of foreigners living illegally in the United States is similar to the forced internment of ethnic-Japanese Americans in World War II, according to Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. “I’ll be very honest with you: Looking at the numbers at some point, in terms of how people are treated and deported and families separated and the rest, this has a scent of Japanese internment,” Pelosi told a Politico reporter. “It’s really a black mark,” said Pelosi. Roughly 110,000 ethnic-Japanese immigrants and their American children were detained during World War II after Japan’s sneak attack on Americans in Pearl Harbor. Pelosi also urged Obama
