"I pity people that have to build in this city. It's really a painful, painful process." WHAT A LOAD OF PRIVELEGED BULL CRAP!
You're comparing a disadvantaged group's plight of HOMELESSNESS to the bureaucratic red tape that financially secure/wealthy land developers will deal with (secure in the fact that they're not wondering where their next meal is coming from, where or when they'll be able to sleep in a secure environment without being harassed or threatened with bodily harm)?
Get a friggin clue, Pearl residents. You don't even have any remotely similar experiences in your combined lives to compare to the actual/literal pain that comes from economic instability, food instability, lack of access to medical & mental health resources, let alone a safe & secure place to sleep for the night.
I hope the city RAMS this down your throats, and that all of your meals are forever tainted with the after-taste clinging to your soft palate.
Uhm, hello, dick bags. *NOT* voting for the lesser of two evils is voting for the greater of two evils. Thanks. You can pick up your welcome packet at the Log Cabin Republican table.
If spanking it in the confines of a water closet in an office building is wrong, I don't wanna be right. Sometimes you just have to get it out of your system so you can focus on what you're being paid to do. I think this has more to do with libido and less to do with sanity or race.
Relying on corporate run media to be unbiased is your mistake. Along with making sweeping generalizations without bothering to do any research of your own. There are far too many intelligent discussions/articles/editorials on the internet for anyone to claim ignorance. And for the techno-phobes? Come down to a rally or to an Occupy camp and ask questions. It's not hard, it just takes getting off your duff, and participating in the discussion.
But I get how easy it must be to sit back at home and say things will never change, and that we're all a bunch of smelly trust-fund hippies searching for martyrdom. That's ok. We're protesting for democracy, even for the politically & academically lazy.
FrankieB might be making the mistake of lumping the entire protest with those that refused to clear Main Street. To quote Martin Short's character from Father of the Bride, "every party has a pooper."
I doubt it's possible to have any political protest / movement without a few bad seeds along for the ride. Luckily, they were hauled away as the majority of the protestors (who had also been calling for the "de-occupancy" of Main street) watched from the sidelines.
No matter the criticisms, this movement represents the governments interest in frankieb and every other citizen who lacks the funds to "get out of jail" free, or to employ an army of lobbyists for their minority interests.
In short, "hate on me hater, now or later, cause I'm gonna do me. That's just the way it be." Love and Democracy- nibbler83
How are they going to find a congregation in that neighborhood? Are they shipping in fundies from the 'burbs? I can't imagine, it'd be like holding KKK rallies in a predominatly black neighborhood. As much as it pains me, I agree with the whole "be the better person" vibe... but if they start lashing out at the neighborhood and the queer community, put me down for a kiss-in. Freedom of speech and religion are non-negotiable, but that doesn't mean we have to open ourselves as a community to hate-speech.
Maybe I don't understand the fine points of cat ownership, but if someone wanted to take my dog away, I'd fight tooth and nail before I'd let them- up to and including finding a new apartment/landlord. With any pet, the human takes on the responsibility. Sounds like maybe Anonymous wasn't capable of that responsibility.
