Obama strikes. Again.


cuzzin ricky

In the late 60's HUD did something similar in D.C.  There was a tony little apartment building on Wisconsin Ave, amidst embassies,  and just south of the very chic Chevy Chase.  The agency decided to force ( I forget how; maybe the building was in financial straights) owners to turn it into welfare haven.  Lot of dissent, but HUD brought the  hammer down and, lickety-split, the building was home to some very poor Black families.  Right out of the box they screamed bloody murder because [Duh] the only supermarket in the area was an upscale, "International"  Safeway that catered to the embassy crowd, selling caviar, whole pigs, and Filet mignon.  At very high prices.  The same problem existed with other shops.  I remember that after a spate of news stories in the Washington Post and Washington Star, it all just went away. Probably because the local muck-a-mucks grew tired, and slapped a lid on the whole affair.

So, there's that example.

Today's Homily

Is Trump a Tea Party-ish Conservative?
No. But ...
  • He is a capitalist
  • He understands high finance
  • He speaks his minddamn the political consequences
  • He does not suffer fools
  • He fires people who don't perform
  • He loves his country
  • He is not a member of the "Capitol Hill Club"
  • That a corrupt GOP are joined with the more corrupt DNC and outrageously corrupt mass media to destroy Trump says it all.

Given the precipice upon which our nation now stand, I'd say that Trump is a gift from God.

Thank You
