This project on paper sounds good but its just about a savy builder selling a bill of BS to the local civics and town board members.

I AN NAUSEOUS AFTER READING/LISTENING TO ALL THE WHINING ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE WHO DECIDE TO SPEND THEIR OWN MONEY ON THE HOUSE OF THEIR CHOICE. ALL YOU MALCONTENTS WHO SO (JUST LOVE THE GOVERNMENT), THE REAL REASON FOR YOUR MISERY BECAUSE OF THE SECOND HIGHEST TAXED AREA IN THE USA, OUGHT TO WISE UP SUCKERS.

FIRST OF ALL, CUBA IS A SOCIALIST, STALINIST, DICTATORSHIP; IN ORDER FOR ME TO HAVE AN INTELLIGENT DIALOGUE WITH PEOPLE LIKE YOU, GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT. SECONDLY, I HAVE LIVED IN THIS TOWN WHEN GOVERNMENT WAS NOT AN OVERBEARING INFLUENCE UPON THE PEOPLE HERE, MORE FREEDOM FROM GOVERNMENT TRYING TO CONTROL ITS PEOPLE TOTALLY IS A GOOD THING, PERSONAL FREEDOM IS A GOOD THING. YOU JUST HAVEN'T EXPERIENCED IT. POLITICIAN IS TO ME A DIRTY WORD, SOMEONE YOU HAVE TO PUT UP WITH, TO KEEP AN EYE ON.
PEOPLE ARE ENJOYING A HIGHER STANDARD OF LIVING IN THIS COUNTRY (USA), AS OPPOSED TO (CUBA)
FROM THE EFFORTS OF THE PRIVATE SECTOR, NOT FROM ANYTHING THE GOVERNMENT EVER GETS INVOLVED IN. GOVERNMENT CREATES NOTHING, BUILDS NOTHING, DOES NOTHING. YOU MUST BE A PRODUCT OF THE GOVERNMENT PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM TO BE SO INDOCTRINATED,(IGNORANT); A FAILED SCHOOL SYSTEM, THAT IS WHY PARENTS ARE OPTING TO SEND THEIR KIDS TO (CHARTER SCHOOLS), PRIVATE SCHOOLS. IF YOU REALLY WANT TO HERE PEOPLE RANT, GO TO THE TOWN HALL AND LISTEN TO THE (SO CALLED CIVICS, COMPLAIN ON AND ON AD-NAUSEUM ABOUT THEIR PITIFUL LITTLE PROBLEMS, AND HOW THEY EXPECT THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT TO SOLVE IT ALL AT YOUR AND MY EXPENSE!!!

Smart growth and affordable housing will never happen on Long Island. They have been tainted by Catholic Charities, the Hagedorns, Jobs with Justice, Local 1199, ACORN, Working Families, and all the rights groups who take over any committee and try to force it to make housing for illegals and use illegals to build it. They are turning Long Island into a shithole.

You know somthing ...You hit the nail on the head..What ever happened to working hard for somthing? Today people want it for free or very little effort on their part.When they get it for free, as public housing ,they turn it into a dump ,infested with crime and drugs.......
