I can understand that Gyspy. I can imagine how much of that money will be going into someones pocket and not being used for what it is intended. I know that not everyone in public housing is on drugs but the majority are. I have seen it first hand. There has to be a way to clean these places up, get the drugs out, and get the kids off the streets and into some kind of educational daycare in the summer. I couldnt believe the things that I've seen and heard from the kids who are let run free with no supervision. I know that there was a deputy living at a recently built housing to supposedly catch drug dealers. What a joke! He was partying with them! Drugs were still being sold and nothing ever changed. I agree with you, that money should be used for what it was intended for.

What a novel idea, spend more money after bad money. Giving the housing projects a facelift or building more will not remove the cancer. Creating real jobs and reforming welfare would be more advantageous, however the party in power at both the State and Federal levels are not serious about either. That subject is political taboo for them. Certain people have become complacent, dependent, and feel entitled to suckle the Gov't. teat, and until that is altered nothing will change.

You got that right. More and more people are finding themselves relying upon the government because there are no jobs. It's my opinion that's just what the government wants. Rely upon us and we will make everything ok because we know whats best for you. Over the last 30 plus years the American people have become comfortable letting the government think for them. Giving the government all of the power it needs to grow so large that we will live under a dictatorship and have no way to take our country back. We are now handing over our freedom our liberty and our lives to a government that could care less for our well being. We have flushed away the dream of a better tomorrow for our children and grandchildren and turned them into the next slaves of the government. What will they have to thank us for?

This administration vilifies Capitalism and those who support it. They are subverting our economic structure with their Socialist agenda. America, where even a poor man/women could become rich (achieve the American dream) is now being told how rich.(Capitalism-lite with Socialist restraints)

I know for a fact that the Housing Authority in charge of "The Terrace" does all they can with what they have to make it as nice as possible. Maybe some of you people who want to complain should try to get your neighbors to help keep it clean. You live there "mostly on tax payer money". Why don't you get off your ass and keep an eye on things, get involved it is your neighborhood. When you see someone trashing something report it. The only way to get rid of the trash is to take it out.

I have never lived in public housing but I know how things are run there. I know of people who have lived in other public housing and have seen what happens when you complain. You become a target. Your so called neighbors will target you, make false complaints, and harass you until you cant stand it and move away. Who ever manages or runs these does not give a shit as long as they are lining their pockets. If those who were running those places wanted to do anything they would first clear out all of the drug pushers and addicts. That would be a huge first step.

First I can assure you that the people who run the housing here are not lining their pockets. Second it's up to the police to investigate the drugs. Now I know that they might not be that interested but if the people who live there know where to find the drugs it's their responsibility to report it. If they don't want to get involved then that is there problem. But If I knew where they were in my neighborhood I would make sure it was taken care of.
