live close to work; rich should
'be forced' to live among poor

Original Article

Presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke says it is a fundamental “right” for individuals to live near their place of employment and that wealthy Americans should “be forced” to live among the poor. “Living close to work shouldn’t be a luxury for the rich. It’s a right for everyone,” the former Texas congressman tweeted Monday evening. The Democrat’s tweet also included a video further explaining his position. “Here’s the tough thing to talk about, though we must. Rich people are gonna have to allow—or be forced to allow—lower-income people to live near them, which is what we fail to do in this country

Comments:

The gigolo on the skateboard becomes more detestable by the day. Maybe he should demand that women with wealthy fathers marry dorks like him and John Kerry, just in fairness.

Well, as an old cousin of my momma used to say, it's just as easy to fall in love and marry a rich girl than a poor girl. But I'm guessing that Beto and most of his wealthy elite friends mean that we in the middle class should expect the poor and riff-raff (not the same groups, of course) to take over our neighborhoods. The poor won't be able to afford the HOA and other fees in their gated estate neighborhoods.

Yes, if you live close to your work you don't need a car. You can walk, or bike. Bus maybe? We certainly don't want you to choose where you live that best suits your family situation. Let's herd everyone together. Live and work in a limited area. So much easier to control you know. What makes him think only the "rich" live close to their work? On a good day I am at work in 6 minutes. 8 minutes on a bad day. And I am not rich. I know we throw around the crazy meme for these people but he really is.

Re#5: Should the totalitarian left ever gain the power they so fervently desire, you will not have a car to gas up. And most likely, those of us not politically connected will be forced to live in soviet-style, concrete block apartments. Eight families to each apartment, bathing and toilet facilities down the hall. Finally: equality.

What an idiot. The central planners have been enacting zoning laws for years just to keep the riff raff out of the rich neighborhoods and keep property values high for the tax base. If you want to see how fast you can fill up city hall, just propose an "affordable housing" subdivision next to a gated community.

Didn't they try some thing like this already? That is how we got something called the SUBURBS. People with the money could afford to live further away from work and the lower income people were stuck where they were (close to work in the cities). This resulted in the inner cities becoming what they are today. Beto is an idiot.

First, the truly "wealthy" typically don't work at a fixed location, so I assume he means "high income" but Beto is never guilty of thinking things through. I'm not wealthy and live 1,495 driving miles from my fixed workplace and wouldn't take kindly to being 'forced' to move any closer. I'm hoping to retire before the Green New Deal kicks in and air travel is banned. Besides, my horse is only good for around 30 miles/day.

Chicago is one of the most Democrat places in the country. And yet it is one of the most segregated cities re rich and poor. Freeways separate good neighborhoods from bad neighborhoods. City planners designed the layout that way. So why would we listen to a Democrat about where people should live?

I'm beginning to feel pity for the little fake Mexican. Separate from that, when a city experiences gentrification, some black leaders complain bitterly about it. It drives up housing costs, they say, making it unaffordable for blacks.

Each time this guy speaks we see into another of his thought patterns. It continues to be more scary each time. How does a sane person come up with these thoughts? My Father used to say that you can't help what thoughts sometimes pop into your head, but you can help what comes out of your mouth. I suppose O'Rourke never heard that or he might be more careful.

Even Mother Teresa didn't advocate forcing the rich to live among the poor, as she chose to do. Dumbass Beta... I doubt that he gained either one rich or one poor vote for saying this The poor people don't want rich people living among them any more than the rich want the poor to live among them. They rant and rave against 'gentrification' if some rich people move in and try to 'spruce up' the neighborhood. Maybe a few middle class white guilt social justice warriors will like this idea..

Robert, why must people live close to their job? More importantly, why can't people live where they want? The only reason people are forced to live close to their job is because they are TIED TO IT LIKE SLAVES. That might be the way things work in a Communist society or any society based on slavery, but the United States OTLAWED SLAVERY over a century ago. Is this more transformation, Robert?

That is part and parcel of the latest push for us to all ride bicycles and do away with our gasoline using cars. The idiot "planners" in my city spent months inconveniencing us with road construction, all so they could do away with turning lanes and put in bike paths (that almost nobody uses). The left wants us all to live near work in highrise apartments buildings, walking or riding bicycles. China is the model for all this, with its Social Credit scores and monitoring of the citizens everywhere.

Both Republicans who Donald Trump endorsed won their special congressional elections Tuesday night in North Carolina, delivering the president a symbolic victory as his re-election season gets underway. The two contests, months in the making, were seen as referenda on whether the president could hold on to majorities in red states that propelled him to the Oval Office. Republican Greg Murphy won his Third Congressional District handily, holding on to a seat left vacant when Rep. Walter Jones died in February. The other race, a more hotly contested Ninth Congressional District battle, was a dead heat in the final pre-election polls.

Morristown—New Jersey officials says they’re done doing business with any gun manufacturers that don’t play by their rules. Governor Phil Murphy signed an executive order Tuesday demanding gun makers turn over their practices to the state, and this applies to banks that do business with New Jersey, too.(Snip) New Jersey is a $70 million buyer in the gun business as the state supplies police with weapons and ammo annually. And that number does not include local towns and counties.

A former top official in the Federal Emergency Management Agency was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly taking bribes from the head of a company who received $1.8 billion in federal contracts to repair Puerto Rico’s power grid after Hurricane Maria devastated the island in 2017. Ahsha Tribble, a deputy regional administrator, another former FEMA official, Jovanda Patterson, and Donald Keith Ellison, the former president of COBRA Acquisitions, were charged in a 15-count indictment. Patterson, Tribble’s deputy chief of staff, steered contracts to COBRA and left FEMA in July 2018 for a job at the energy company, the court documents say.

I thank John very much for his service. I will be naming a new National Security Advisor next week. This is a developing story and will be updated.

Google’s latest smart product has some users wary, as concerns grow over the ‘spying’ abilities of internet-connected home devices. The firm launched the successor to its Nest Hub (formerly called the Home Hub) on Tuesday, offering its Smart Display with Google Assistant and a bigger, 10-inch screen. And, unlike those before it, the $229 Nest Hub Max has a built in camera that can recognize different faces.(Snip) ‘Whenever you walk in front of the camera, Nest Hub Max recognizes you and shows just your information, not anyone else’s,’ Google explained in a release earlier this year.

Early Monday morning, Donald Trump tweeted: “94% Approval Rating in the Republican Party, a record. Thank you!” Where the president got this specific number remains a mystery. Recent polls by YouGov put his GOP approval roughly ten points lower, and Gallup, which has tracked Trump’s popularity since he took office, puts him at 88 percent. But I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised that Trump used his Sharpie to round up his score. He’s deeply invested in being — or at least claiming to be — the most popular Republican president in history.

The far-left members of the “Squad” – Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) – participated in an NAACP forum Wednesday evening and declared that members of the Republican Party are “scared” of them “because they know how powerful” they are. Ocasio-Cortez talked about her background as a waitress and told the moderator, Angela Rye, that she does not “shy away” from her background of working in restaurants because it prepared her for her current job as a congresswoman. “Nothing will give you the ferocity of advocacy like having that kind of experience,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

Every year, thousands of Shia worshippers take part in the ceremonies, performed to mourn the death of Husayn ibn Ali, a grandson of the Prophet Muhammad. The commemorations take place on Ashura, the tenth day of the first month of the Islamic calendar. They mark Husayn's death at the Battle of Karbala, fought between Husayn and Yazid I on October 10 680AD to determine who should succeed the prophet as the leader of Islam.

Crooked Hillary mocked the US from abroad then taunted House Republicans over her email scandal. Hillary Clinton visited an art exhibit in Venice, Italy this week which displayed 60,000 pages of her ’emails’ she sent over her private server. The artist, Kenneth Goldsmith, printed up 60,000 pages of Hillary Clinton’s emails that somehow managed to survive her BleachBit spree and called the exhibit, “HILLARY: The Hillary Clinton Emails.” According to The Hill, Hillary spent nearly an hour rifling through her emails at the exhibit, then posed for a picture.This wasn’t enough for Hillary — she

This is the time for President Trump to deprive his enemies of the last weapon that could be employed against him that could cause him any harm: the largely false, but still troublesome, issue of his personality and routine behavior. Other lines of attack have come to naught: Collusion with Russia, accusations of racism provoking outbursts of mass murder (by uttering “racially charged statements,” in the inadvertently Orwellian words of CNN’s most witless talking head, Don Lemon), the verbal recession confected by the world-renowned economists of CNN and MSNBC, all of it has collapsed. Illegal border crossings are in sharp decline as the wall is steadily extended,

City contractors would have to reveal past ties to slavery under a Council bill that will be introduced on Thursday. The legislation would require companies to search their history and records to determine if they or any affiliated entities engaged in or profited from the slave trade when they enter in or renew city contracts of $100,000 or more. “New York City is the financial capital of the world, and the ugly truth is that its stature as such has roots in the slave trade,” Councilman I.

Pete Buttigieg's twisted

Mayor Pete Buttigieg ought to crack open the Bible, turn to Psalm 139, and read how God formed humans “fearfully and wonderfully” — and after, take a second look at his views on abortion and repent, said his brother-in-law, Rhyan Glezman, an evangelical pastor from Michigan, on Fox News. Good advice. It is a curiosity how a self-declaring Christian can still stand strong on the side of abortion rights. This is what Buttigieg said a few days ago on a “Breakfast Club” radio interview: “Right now, [conservatives] hold everybody in line with this one piece of doctrine about abortion, which is obviously a tough issue

AUSTIN— Twenty-two Greenpeace USA activists created a blockade on the Fred Hartman Bridge in Baytown, Texas early Thursday ahead of the third Democratic primary debate in Houston. Eleven of those climbers are dangling over the side of the bridge, an activist said in a Facebook Live video. The climbers held colorful ribbons and streamers to block traffic under the bridge. The group aims to “shut down the largest oil export channel in the U.S.” for 24 hours. Law enforcement officials told the local NBC affiliate that Houston Ship Channel was temporarily closed down because the protesters threatened to lower themselves to stop ship traffic.

In honor of the 18th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks, on Wednesday President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump both posted tweets that pictured them standing on a balcony underneath or above the words “We Will Never Forget.”While conservatives appeared to respond to the posts by issuing their own Sept. 11 tributes and thanking the president for his efforts to protect America from further terror attacks, many on the left reacted to it with scorn, derision, and highly disturbing conspiracy theories.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made a payment towards her student loan debt during a committee meeting and called on Congress to take swift action on the issue. “I literally made a student loan payment while I was sitting here at this chair, and I looked at my balance and it was $20,237.16 (£16,410.62),” the New York Democrat said at a meeting of the financial services committee focusing on student debt. “I just made a payment that took me down to $19,000 (£15,412),” she added, “so I feel really accomplished right now.”(Snip) Democrats like Ilhan Omar and Bernie Sanders have also called on Congress

Although the Democrats were heavily focused on winning in North Carolina's 3rd and 9th Congressional Districts and they outspent the GOP heavily, Republicans Dan Bishop and Greg Murphy came out victorious on Tuesday night. But how did they win when the odds were stacked against them, at least on the monetary front? According to Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, President Donald Trump rallied voters and helped push the candidates over the finish line. In particular, Trump's last minute stump on Monday night gave Bishop a last minute boost,
