In the name of “diversity,” the Feds are “mapping” your neighborhood:
(CNSNews.com) – To ensure that “every American is able to choose to live in a community they feel proud of,” HUD has published a new fair-housing regulation intended to give people access to better neighborhoods than the ones they currently live in.
If you don’t think this is a precursor to the government getting into the business of telling you where you can and can’t live, just wait. This is exactly how these things always start. This is how the anti-smoking campaigns started. It is how the anti-“big car” crusade started. It is how the global warming/cap-and-trade stuff started. It is how the EPA tyranny started. It is how everything the Progressives want to do in the way of controlling your life starts.
Now, before you buy into this new lie – and it is a lie – think about what it takes to be proud of your neighborhood. Does it take money? NO! It takes the necessary concern to:
1 – Keep your neighborhood safe. That means neighborhood watches and having the courage to chase out the riff-raff.
2 – Keep up your property. That means mow the lawn, paint the house, fix the broken shutters and screen doors. Yes, spend your money on your home before you buy that fancy car, fancy clothes and jewelry.
3 – The self-respect to maintain #’s 1 & 2 no matter how busy or tired you get.
This is all that is required to be proud of where one lives. The color of your neighbors’ skin has nothing to do with. So, why do the Feds word things this way? That’s easy: “Fairness” is a Progressive code word for “We need to transfer some more wealth.”
That’s right: this is just another Progressive plan to buy votes by giving people something they did not earn. This never produces pride in anything. On the contrary, it produces the culture this program claims it is trying to help people escape. And there you go: another example of the 180 degree rule. See how prevalent that rule is when you are dealing with Progressives?
