If the State has no power over "affordable housing"
Why did "the State" sue Ptown to "provide"
low income-high density housing for outsiders? (Comment deemed inappropriate by Pleasanton Weekly Online staff)

The president of America's and the governor of California's speeches are both getting more and more similar to the leader of the Soviet Union's speeches before Perestroika. Sometimes I wonder whether the speeches were newly written or just were translated from Russian.
The question is whether America is moving to the direction of the USSR of late 1980es or of 1930es.

Anna,

In response to your question as to whether America is moving in the direction of the old USSR. The answer is a resounding YES. Unfortuantely, we are going to find out just how much so in Obama's second term, as he no longer is running for office again. You can expect his communist mentality to hit us on many fronts. Also, the left-wing loons are already prepping another communist to run in 2016, Her Lowness, Miz Hillary Rod'em Clinton; and the media is already cranking up their love campaign for Miz Rod'em. (If you don't think she is a communist, look back at her history, including when she worked for a law firm that was adamently communist. Her own father considered her a communist and disowned her.)

We are in deep, deep, doodoo unless the people of this country wake up, and wake up soon. I always wonder how a despot like Hitler could have got elected. Now we have seen a repeat in our own country.

"...that California has a "very vibrant" housing market but it needs to re-examine some laws and regulations that may be hampering the market."

I guess it never dawned on JB that with 9.8% unemployment (not including those out of the system) the problem >just might< be people not having job prospects?

I guess blaming laws and regulations will suffice when you have no plan. The new "normal".

Silly.
