California Land Use Declares War on Suburbia – No Backyards and No Cars

In 2006 California passed Assembly Bill 32 otherwise known as the Global Warming Solutions Act.  The purpose of the bill was to establish long range statewide programs to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by the year 2020.  The bill established mandatory caps on numerous sources of greenhouse gas emissions by this year, 2012.

In 2008 California passed Senate Bill 375 known as the Sustainable Communities and Climate Protection Act.  The target of this bill was automobiles and their emissions which according to the statistics used to help pass the bill, constitute up to 30% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the state.  The measure sought ways to reduce the amount of auto emissions using technology along with the reduction of the number of cars and distances people are commuting to and from work.

Using these two measures as their guidelines, state, county and city land planners are looking at ways to bring people closer to jobs and well, just plain closer together.  For example, any new developments in the San Francisco Bay area will have to develop the property with no fewer than twenty housing units per acre.  The current density requirement is no fewer than 4 units per acre.

Instead of single family homes, most of the future development will be duplexes, triplexes, condos and apartments.  Some of the planners are looking at European models such as the way the Swedes live like sardines packed close together in a can.

One of the problems facing land planners is that more and more people have been moving away from the cities out to the suburban areas.  This has led to an increase in the number of automobiles and the distances they are traveling, thus an increase in the amount of auto emissions.

To solve this problem, they are looking at ways to bring people back to the city.  One of the ways they plan to do this is to limit the amount of development in the suburban and rural areas and direct their efforts to redeveloping urban corridors.  By packing people back into downtown housing they hope to eliminate cars and commuting.

Other areas in California will be limited to what they call transit villages which will have a minimum of 30 units per acre.  By 2035, more than two-thirds of regional new housing developments will be condos and apartments.

As I read this report in the Wall Street Journal, I couldn’t help but recall my impressions of New York City when I visited family there when I was a kid.  Tall apartment buildings everywhere and no one had a backyard, a tree to climb, or a car to drive.  They took the subway, busses or taxis everywhere they went.  Their life was reminded me of the ant farm I had back home.  When I looked out of my aunt’s apartment window, everyone down below looked like ants scurrying to and fro.

California wants to become like Sweden and New York City.  As for me, that’s just another reason why I wouldn’t want to live there.

    So, there will be little differences between California and China. Except that China is now moving into their "suburban" phase.

    All in the name of Agenda21, if you don't know about the program I suggest you educate yourself very quickly.

      That's exactly what is going on, UN Sustainable Development Agenda 21 which when completed will make the US part of a communist one world gov. The excuse behind it is the environment they say is unsustainable. I can see everything Obama is doing can be related back to that, for instance his war on fossil fuels. I agree, everyone should research this madness because it affects every area of our lives.

    • annie66

       You are right, unfortunately. Note that when these Communists have hustled the little people off to the sardine cans, the rulers will continue to live in mansions. How many movie stars will give up their fancy digs and move in with the rubble? How many politicians? I have been hoping that California would be removed from the equation by a big earth quake but it hasn't happened yet. I will continue to hope....

        I think we should give California back to Mexico as a grand "gift" gesture - they think it belongs to them anyway!!

           Sounds like a deal to me. Anything to rid ourselves of the freaks.

          Ha Ha - yeah that will have to be part of the deal - Mexico will have to take the Americans that are California citizens. Wow,  just think  about how many less freaks the great USA would have!! Maybe we could offer them a buy 2 and get one free deal and "throw in" New York and Washington, DC!!

         Don't worry, when the government gets through with us and we don't have any money to support the Hollywood rift-raff, then the government will strip them of the things they have also. Remember the old  adage, " Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely!"

    • Blazing Scriptures

      Big governments are always highly corrupt because with big government comes great power with access to massive wealth. Great power and massive wealth will always attract the most corrupt with the greatest ability to take advantage of great power to steal massive wealth, such as George Soros. Such people are truly evil and heartless. They will kill anyone who gets in their way. And they will always strive for greater power and greater wealth. They know the biggest government possible would be a one world government, the New World Order. It would have the greatest power possible with access to the most massive wealth of all, the wealth of the entire world. The New World Order will have the most corrupt oppressive government in the history of the world. There's not much time to stop it, if it's not too late already. God, help us all.

      I'll sum Agenda21 up for you.

      If you are a government big shot (the bigger, the better) you get to have it all.  If you are not, you get to give it all, and that includes your right to live.  If some red tape machine half the world away decides too many people are "sharing" his air, he'll give an order to wipe out a few million on the other side.  He'll never see the destruction he causes, so it won't bother him.

    Most of the Conservatives are  leaving little by little for other states and it's probably a good thing. I wouldn't want to live like a sardine in a can. CA will come to resemble a concrete jungle and look like an eye sore. I wouldn't want to be living in one of those big high rises if an earth quake hit.

    Of course California will be bankrupt long before any of this nonsense is implemented and all the business relocates to some where they are wanted.   And if we are real lucky all the good people will be gone when it slids our to sea creating beach front property in Arizona.

    • southernpatriot

      The problem with Californians is, they are Kalifornians. As for their businesses moving to a state that would appreciate them is, they will eventually want to turn their new state  into another Kalifornia. So from a Texan, I would prefer they take their business elsewhere.

      • Diane

        As a conservative in California, (yes, there are conservatives here) I feel like I'm in an asylum. Common sense died here a long time ago. I agree with you completely southern patriot. I grew up in upstate NY. Rolling hills, dairy farms and quaint little town all scattered about. That's when the nightmare started. All the liberal progressives in NY City, decided to move to the country. Needless to say, the "COUNTRY" no longer exists. Dairy farms are rubble. As for the quiet, quaint little conservative towns, well lets just say the dynamics as well as the politics have changed and not for the better. If I were a Texan, I wouldn't want Californians moving  into my state either. 

  • El_Love

    part of the progressive agenda is to move people into urban settings to exact more control over people, resources (food, water, electricity, etc), no surprise it starts in a seemingly innocuous manner ---   but nothing that the progressives do is or ever will be innocuous

      About the UN: did you notice that on 9-11 the UN Building was avoided by the terrorists? It should have been a tempting target because of its size and the mass of people inside but the terror pilots gave it a wide berth.

      Some have blamed Bush for it but that looks like a real stretch. Bush had been in office 8 and a fraction months, not nearly enough time to plan the logistics and coordination of all the parties taking part. George Soros looks like the most likely perp.

  • leorumthug

    I feel sorry for the few sane people that still reside or are stuck  in California.   California would be my last choice of a place to live.  The state has many beautiful resources, however it's all offset by the ugliness of progressives.  I'm afraid that their constant bombardment would be enough to cause me to go postal. 

    • ConservaDave2

       I recently spent 2 weeks in the San Francisco area.  Northern California cannot be beat for natural beauty and climate.  However, the proud and arrogant smug self-righteous know-it-all attitudes of most of the citizens with their sometimes subtle but in-your-face my-way-or-the-highway Obama loving liberalism made me feel relieved when time came to depart and that kind of oppressiveness lifted.  (How does Michael Savage do it?)  The fools will bankrupt the state soon, so maybe when that finally happens there will be a chance that some kind of reason and intelligence will re-emerge.

      • batonpatriot

    Jesus Christ is the answer.  Ridiculous? How do you think that you are ever going to convince power-hungry, money-hungry, and self-deluded people in power to look past their own selfish interests? Are you crazy? Education won't help action will. Pray. Vote with your wallet and your ballot. Give your time. Sacrifice your leisure time and work hard to get people elected. Write initiatives. America is based on the godly principles of freedom and opportunity. Every other culture and society emphasize power and control and put DOWN people below them. Do you think Mexico believes in welfare? You die in the street or get shot for stealing food.  Why do you think people come here illegally to work as slaves? Do you thin that 1 politician is going to live in an apartment? Do you think that 1 mansion is going to cover over their lawn? Do you think the Governor will stop driving an SUV?

    Thank you, BRAC-95 that shut down McClellan AFB and got me OUT of CA! Here's the downside of that "sustainable developement" plan. If you are "inside", your survival depends on Just In Time Supply (JITS) working just right, 24-7. One hick-up (a strike, power failure, etc.) and your comfort level goes down. If that problem persists, tough to be you!

      I am a native born, and natural born, Californian.  In the late 1980's I left the SF Bay Area behind, where my family has been based since 1949, in favor of the then rural Sierras.  This first move, reduced the impact of the leftist loonies, but unfortunately.....only for a little while.

      By the early 1990's  I saw this coming, and just after Oct 1996, I left CA for WA State.  Therefore, I am a California expatriot, and PROUD OF IT.

      Not only did I leave California behind, but I moved to the RURAL side of WA, complete with 20 acres, horses, dogs, cats and chickens.  I also own a little F-150 4x4 with a 302 engine, and since I have to haul hay, I think that this is an appropriate vehicle for me.

      YES. Since I do live miles from any major shopping centers, I do have to keep my shopping organized, and limited to 1-2 times a month, but...no one can pay me enough to go back to CA.  No way, no how!

      Their projected, and under construction, "beehive" approach to living only degrades people's self-worth, self-reliance, lowers morality, and promotes violence.  THANKS, BUT...NO THANKS!!

      WA State has its own set of liberal problems, our current governor is to be thanked for this, but... so far, the leftist loonies haven't managed to take over so completely.  Thus, I have hope for the future, for here.

        BUT now the GOV wants to shut him down.. they are ONLY for BIG CORP cken suppliers  I guess..  the inspector told him last yr that he was retiring because the GOV isn' going to need him next yr .

       I've been to Eastern Europe and this is the norm over there. Concrete tenements flats left over from the old Soviet regime. All identical. If a country goes Communist you get removed from your property.
      The state confiscates it and determines where you live. I know because this happened to my mother's people. They lost their farm.And they were sent to live in the city in the concrete jungle.

      The government patsy's and high communists get the perks of living in better living quarters.

  • ConservaDave2

    It's so easy to lose your humanity when squeezed into environments as are described in this article; places so devoid of breathing space and nature.  Why are crime rates and generally bad behavior so prevalent in the cities?  People feel threatened in these kinds of places and defensively strike out far too often.  Perhaps they could rename theses bills something like "The Death to Civilization Act of 2012."

  • pete39

    Government "condensed housing" has worked fine for decades.  Just look at the projects in any big city where people are forced to live one atop another.  

    Of course, I'm sure government is taking into consideration the massive unmarried birth rate, unknown fathers, rapes, murders, assaults, drug dealing, and all the other crime living like this promotes.  Having money is no protection when living like this, it just marks you as a target. 

    Of course, you'll never see any of our 'leaders' living in the same conditions.

    The solution, while not simple, is straight forward; adhere to  the 10th Amendment, and let the individual states run their own education, health, housing, social services,  land use,  and other programs with the Federal  Government only in a coordinating position. Then, we will have 50 (57-Obama count) seperate agencies working with several different approaches on just   how programs should be run. Federal, "One size, fits all" programs, seldom ever work, as they are too far removed from knowing what is different, and what is needed  in each state. Similarly, counties should reassume more controls from the states, in that they too know what is best for their citizens. Let us get the "people" back into the process of controlling their own lives, with little as possible, oversight and control from "higher up". True, as the population becomes more "crowded", the more rules we must have to keep the peace, but we should not use "broad-brush" treatments, where local proceedures should prevail.  Also, all "open" Federal lands should immediatley revert back to the states, retaining select  existing National parks such as Yellowstone, Glacier, etc. Supply and demand should dictate housing size and location, within limits of course, with a requirement that all new housing developments be intermixed with small "starter units", for singles and newly-weds, with a minimun of two bedrooms wherin one could be used as a computer room, office or bedroom, as circumstances dictate. These small units should be of the same quality as the larger units, so as to not detract from overall  adjacent property values. Again, supply and demand, should determine the mix and not some broad-brush government edict. And yes, there is lots, lots more---and I am 80 years young and have no desire to run for office.

    Fits right in with enviro-scientists plans to re-engineer the human body to be midget-sized, therefore reducing our carbon footprints. And people do so well when they're crammed together in small spaces. Just look at Cabrini Green in Chicago (hey, isn't that where Obama is from, sort of??). I just looked out my picture window and counted 90 trees. And even more shrubs. And lots of green grass. And the robins have built a nest on the privacy wall of my deck and are now happily feeding their chicks. I let them be. Life is good without government intervention.

    I do not see how the cities will be able to sustain themselves by this form of high density development. How will they make up for the lost tax revenue between apartment buildings and single family homes?  They better have some really good paying jobs in order to attract people that that style of living.  That's throwing the American dream right out the window.

  • Sutekh

    I thought that in the U.S., we were supposed to have separation of church and state. How the hell did the Geocalorians managed to pass a state law requiring everyone in the whole state to practice the principles of their wacko religion?

    Geocalorianism IS a religion, because its doctrines are as rigid as those of Islam, and resist any effort at reason. If any scientific fact gets in the way of Geocalorianism, it ignores it and simply goes on its merry way.  And, like all religions, it is so dedicated to its faith, that it wants to force it on everyone else. After all, they sincerely believe that the earth is getting warmer, and they sincerely believe that it is solely due to white couples having more than one baby, so there.

    Remember, "It doesn't matter what you believe as long as you are sincere."  The problem comes in when sincere belief, based on the subjectivity of the religious mind, rather than science, suddenly grabs the crown like Napoleeon and declatres itself "Fact."

    This is not the complete list; it was taken from the 45 Communist goals that found their way down the halls of our great Capitol back in 1963.

    Communist Goals (1963) Congressional Record–Appendix, pp. A34-A35 January 10, 1963 Current Communist Goals EXTENSION OF REMARKS OF HON. A. S. HERLONG, JR. OF FLORIDA IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES Thursday, January 10, 1963 .

    3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

    15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

    26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.” 

    (Leviticus 20:13If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.)

    27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.”
    30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
    31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

    Luke 10:18And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.
    In ancient Hebrew the word for lightning is barack, the word for heaven or the
    heights is bama and to connect the words either an “a” or an “o” is used.

    “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” – Barack Hussein Obama – Audacity of Hope

    3Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

    Political Correctness a term first seen in Mao’s Little Red Book, a communist engendered abomination that is instituting censorship little by little.

    “If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.”- George Washington

    Carl Marx, once wrote that, the goal of the Communists was to quote,. “enter into men’s minds and cast God down from his throne.”

    Matthew 12:31Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.

     

    In ancient Babylon their economy was based on usury.
    “If you lend money to one of my people among you who is needy, do not be like a moneylender; charge him no interest. Exodus 22:25
    Hath given forth upon usury, and hath taken increase: shall he then live? he shall not live: he hath done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood shall be upon him. Ezekiel 18:13
    Usury is unlawful; expressly prohibited by GOD!
     Article 1 Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution clearly states that only the Congress can print and coin money! 

    The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 was slipped thru congress during the Christmas break with the majority of it’s members absent. 

    The Federal Reserve is self serving and privately owned in violation to the Constitution, charging interest on illegally printed money. Money printed from nothing!
    In America On June 4, 1963, a virtually unknown Presidential decree, Executive Order 11110, was signed with the authority to basically strip the Federal Reserve Bank of its power to loan money to the United States Federal Government at interest. With the stroke of a pen, President Kennedy declared that the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank would soon be out of business. Five months later A UNITED STATES PRESIDENT, PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY was MURDERED BY COMMUNIST! 

    Our own US Congress voted themselves a raise. (But vetoed a raise for those on Social Security) A member of Congress only have to be in Congress one time to receive a pension that is more than $15,000 per month. And most are now equal to being millionaires plus.  If some one in the military stays  in for 20 years (providing that they are not killed in combat before that) and gets out as an E-7, they may receive a pension of $2,000 per month, and the very people who placed them in harm's way receives a pension of $15,000 per month.

    “If you lend money to one of my people among you who is needy, do not be like a moneylender; charge him no interest. Exodus 22:25
    Hath given forth upon usury, and hath taken increase: shall he then live? he shall not live: he hath done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood shall be upon him. Ezekiel 18:13
    Usury is unlawful; expressly prohibited by GOD!
     
     
    In ancient Babylon their priest sacrificed babies to their gods baal, and molech.  
    In America the communist under their socialist programs have sacrificed over 50 million American babies to their god satan!
    Leviticus 20:2-5
    2Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel , Whosoever he be of the children of Israel , or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel , that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones.
    3And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name.
    4And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the man, when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, and kill him not:
    5Then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people.
     
    Luke 22:35-36 Then Jesus asked them, “When I sent you without purse, bag or sandals, did you lack anything?” “Nothing,” they answered. 36 He said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.
     
     
    Jeremiah 50:16Cut off the sower from Babylon, and him that handleth the SICKLE in the time of harvest: for fear of the oppressing sword they shall turn every one to his people, and they shall flee every one to his own land.
    Jeremiah 50:23How is the HAMMER OF THE WHOLE EARTH CUT ASUNDER AND BROKEN! how is Babylon become a desolation among the nations!
    BABYLON = the HAMMER and SICKLE!
     
     
    Jeremiah 50:14 “ Put yourselves in array against Babylon all around, All you who bend the bow; Shoot at her, spare no arrows, For she has sinned against the LORD.

    All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD will I destroy them. Psalm 118:10

    “The thing that separates the American Christian from every other person on earth is the fact that he would rather die on his feet, than live on his knees!”. George Washington

      2 Timothy 2:15   Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 

    Jeremiah 48: 10Cursed be he that doeth the work of the LORD deceitfully, and cursed be he that keepeth back his sword from blood.

    Revelation 18:21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying , Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down , and shall be found no more at all.

    And the people contracting to build the rack 'em and stack'em apartment buildings along the transit corridors are being funded by government (taxpayer) money and given a free pass regarding liability for defects in the resulting buildings.

    Back in the old USSR, they built screens that extended out from the building as part of new buildings. These were to keep pieces of building, as they fall off, from killing pedestrians. Obviously the buildings would begin to fall apart not long after they were completed. That's quality we can all admire. We'll call it "California Quality."

    This is not a california idea, This is a  "UN - Agenda 21" Plan. Don't Believe me,Google it, then read it. It's like Obama Care,  which has nothing to do with Affordable Health Care & EVERYTHING  To Do With Controlling Us "We The People"  It's All about The New World Order, That's Why if you've been paying Attention,  Obama is All About.

    You know, if they want people to move back into the city then maybe it might be a good idea to make people WANT to live in the city - obviously the libtards and progressives have never heard the saying that you can "draw more flies with honey than vinegar".  They are trying to do this same sort of crap here in Maryland (though the laws aren't yet so draconian) - get people to move into urban areas and no new housing in rural areas.  But yet much of Baltimore is full of crime and everything that comes with it - drugs, shootings, vacant buildings, etc.  Who on earth wants to live in a place like that?
    Same thing in CA.  I used to live about 50 miles north of LA and worked in N. Hollywood.   I couldn't have stood the thought of living in that sort of urban area, so I resigned myself to having an hour's commute each way every day.  but it was so worth it - I could never live in an urban area, ever.
    The other thing to consider is that these overpopulated urban areas will soon be filled with mostly immigrants from countries  who don't mind living like veal calves.  But what the fools who come up with these laws don't understand is that most Americans don't want to live like that.

    Yep! It's actually happening. Son just got notice in Alameda (Island), CA that no more bar-b-ques outside, cannot smoke tobacco inside or outside(weed wasn't mentioned), no candle burning inside or outside (like dining room candles), and a lot more rules.  Those idiots in CA believe that green gasses are destroying the earth. Germany has proved that green gasses are going to happen no matter what you do. This is all part of our Environmental bla bla and there is not one sign of Scientific proof. It all comes down from Al Gore and his tree hugging minions who have helped to destroy the United States. Manufacturers cleaned up the water-ways and air but that wasn't good enough for Al Gore. So sanctions were slapped on Manufacturers and Industries so they moved their businesses out of the country or went out of business =JOB LOSS. More Communism coming. I smell it.

    This is classic "agenda 21" and it's happening here in califorenia but it is an international plan by liberal progressives from both the right and left. And it won't stop here in California, it is already all accross the US and most of the rest of the world. The only way to prevent the loss of our liberties is to vote the b------rds out of office and get back to our constitution. Take a good look at  "Agenda 21" and see how far it has already been implimeted.

    Nothing they do in one country will reduce anything. Go to Egypt and see the cars
    pouring out white smoke from their exhaust. Third world countries are polluting all over the world and regulating us to death is going to make a difference?

    I was born in Sacramento, California in 1946. I lived there my whole life, until the age of 62, at which time I left, moved to Texas, because I was sick and tired of living in a state controlled by a pack of COMMUNISTS, er, ah, ... excuse me .....progressives. My children, my grandchildren, and now great grand children are still in California, trapped by a recession, that makes it impossible to scrape up the money to move, and no regular employment to allow them to stay there and prosper.

    For example, shortly after moving to Texas, I received a renewal notice on my Ford F250 pickup truck. California had billed me $694.00 for the renewal. I renewed in Texas for $74.00 and Texas roads and highways are far, far, far superior to California. No state income tax in Texas. I purchased a home in Texas that cost me $87,500.00, a 3 bdrm, 2 bath, 2 car attached garage, on 2 acres, 1551 sq. feet, brick home, just outside the city limits, with, barns, outbuildings, corral, 20 tree fruit orchard and garden area, with a private water well, and no water meter. The utilities here are all "co-op", so they are about half the cost as California. Even with the recession and down housing market, this very same property in California would have cost me at that time about $400,000 to $425,000.00 in California with an annual tax bill of over $5000. My taxes in Texas are now frozen at just under $1100.00, because I am over 65 and retired. California schools rank lower in quality than Texas. Texas is a right to work state, ....NO UNIONS!

    Soon, California will be out of options, as well as already being out of money! They will be forced to go to the FEDS for a bailout. Personally, I hope the feds tell them to go "urinate up a rope"! Until the socialist majority, that make up the California, take positive steps to get there financial house in order, they deserve NO HELP from the taxpayers of other states. What is the nuber one thing California can do to get financially healthy? One thing! Pass a law that says NO STATE AID TO ILLEGAL ALIENS, IN WELFARE, MEDICAL, OR EDUCATIONAL BENEFITS! And VOILA, you would instantly have a California balanced budget!

  • d rash

    If they go to the feds for a bailout, I hope the feds put the whole state under the direction of a very, very, VERY conservative financial administrator! Hopefully, by then Obama will be history, gone, toast, adios, otherwise it will be the same old progressive dogma to continue in California, with the only difference being, all the other 49 states (or is it 57) will be paying for Californias folishness!

I like my BBQing time, I like my space...  I would say to those in California that don't want to put up with the 'crap' of the urban designers, to get those that hired them out of office or just pack up your belongings and head for Wyoming or Montana or some other wide open place...O give me room, lottsa room with starry skies above, don't fence me in...

  • Shagnasty1

     And all you fools who think these laws are a great idea be sure the politicians adhere to them too. But you are usually the ones who accept the politicians premise they need THEIR big homes and cars because they are important so need to entertain and need to travel to make sure YOU comply.  And when you leave California because you can't afford it anymore and it isn't worth living there please don't come to my state with your failed goofy ideas. You aren't welcome.

  • caisinsane

    Trust me, I live here and you don' want to!  CA is a mess, in every possible way and packing people into sardine cans is not the answer.  Perhaps, if they improved public transportation more than they have they would not have this problem here.  But, nobody wants it in their back yard, so it never passes.  Yes, we do have some, and it has improved over the past 20 years, but many expansion projects were shut down by local folks not wanting a bus, train, or subway near their "quiet" back yard.  Surely, there are better answers than just packing 'em into small, highrise units downtown.  Would you want to live in downtown L.A.?  I work here and trust, me, you don't.

    • Rachel

      I can confirm that!  It's a zoo...and not in a good way.  It's a shame that the leftwing lunatics turned this once beautiful, wonderful, trendsetting state into a dirty third world Commie  hellhole.   And if Obama is reelected, he will do the same to what's left of the rest of America.

    Why don't they just condemn any peice of property that does not have a tenament building on it with minimum of 1000 respdents per unit.  No exceptions just make everone live in prision and then they can unlock the door in
    the morning and take the prisioners (residents) to ther assigned work place.    These looney tunes in California
    have gone totall insance with their hyped up scham of Global Warming and the cause of it.  The political leaders
    and the resident of San Francisco, Los Angeles and a few other towns are made up of people who have smoked
    one joint to many and lost all sense of reason in the gulag.
