Plan to save Detroit:
Invest in busier areas, turn
emptying neighborhoods to
farms, forests, ponds

Detroit Free Press, by John Gallagher

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 1/8/2013 10:35:54 PM

A sometimes controversial exploration of how to save Detroit culminated today with the release of the massive Detroit Future City plan that suggests future investment in population centers, such as the West McNichols hospital corridor and Midtown, and allowing other areas to be used for other purposes — some of them neighborhoods where Detroiters have lived for generations but that have slowly lost population and vigor over time. Some of those areas might include Brightmoor, some blocks west of City Airport and parts of the lower east side. Among the most innovative ideas in the

Comments:
Effects of deindustrialization and the welfare state laid bare for all to ignore. Solution, Agenda 21-style? Return as much possible "to nature," cluster everyone together in high-density housing. Net effect: total disaster as every remaining taxpayer flees, refusing to live in maximum proximity with criminals.

Yes, indeed. What Detroit needs is more city planning.

Unions, taxes and diversity will continue to destroy what is left of Detroit.

I think they should put a 30´ fence around it, let a few lions loose, and then charge admission for armored cars to tour the place. Call it "African Safari".

I´ve got a great idea. Restructure downtown Detroit into a QUAINT Mall with QUAINT shops and boutiques and bookstores and COFFEE SHOPS. You know like Europe does. Might work.

Just selling the NWO file cabinet living that is being built in L.A. & N.Y. right now... Allocating 300 sf units per couple.
No need for accumulating stuff as you have no storage; No need for car, as you´ll be clustered in the new middle class hi rise file cabinet public housing.

The Progressive´s Utopia is right.

Exactly so - this is Agenda 21 looming large. The planners are putting the cart before the horse - no point in throwing buckets of tax payer dollars to prettify a cancerous sore until it proves its usefulness for some new industrial development.

5 and 12, burning already had a hand in the destruction of Detroit. Remember all those years when the hoodlums celebrated "Devil´s Night" (Halloween) by burning down buildings?

The problem was not entirely the loss of jobs. It was the failure of policing as well. Detroit became a city you wanted to move out of not into. It was governed by blacks for years. Face it, because it is the truth. They did not govern for the people´s good.

Corrupt city and county governments have been stealing from the city for years ......... nothing can help ´bring´ it back.

Detroit is just a ´Govt Reservation´ run like other ethnic reservations.

Ignoring the practical reasons why you can´t easily convert a city block into a farm, who is going to work this farm? Certainly not the people who live in Detroit. Who is going to guard the produce so it doesn´t get stolen or destroyed by the thugs that live there?

The Internal Revenue Service is demanding that Ron Paul´s Campaign for Liberty organization hand over its list of contributors, and has fined the non-profit organization $12,900 for failing to give names on its annual IRS filing. "There is no legitimate reason for the IRS to know who donates to Campaign for Liberty," the organization´s Communications Director Megan Stiles told the Washington Examiner in an e-mail April 15.

Schools in Birmingham are illegally segregating pupils, discriminating against non-Muslim students and restricting the GCSE syllabus to “comply with conservative Islamic teaching”, an official report leaked to The Telegraph discloses. Department for Education inspectors said that girls in a school at the centre of the so-called “Trojan Horse” plot were forced to sit at the back of the class, some Christian pupils were left to “teach themselves” and an extremist preacher was invited to speak to children. The report, into three schools in the city, follows weeks of controversy over the alleged plot to “Islamise” secular schools in Birmingham

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
