If you don't like living in the city, you'll want to read the following. The other day I received some very disturbing information in the form of The Livable Communities Act, so I checked into it to see if what I had read, unbelievable as it seemed, was true.

Thanks for this eye-opener, Larry. A good place to go on the internet to check legislators' voting records and bills is the Library of Congress, or thomas.loc.gov .

Be informed, Folks...This is one of the most important elections in our lifetimes. Please vote!

I wish you had provided a link. I've been up and down the internet and all I see are inflammatory Tea Party and other reactionary "the sky is falling" talking points without substantiation. It really is impossible to have a productive discussion when an appropriately angry segment of the population is intellectually vulnerable and being used by powers that have their own nefarious agenda (not imagined, but real).

Marion...Please go to the source...the Library of Congress and type in SB1619. You'll see that, if nothing else, this thing is going to create another huge bureaucracy.

The Lame Duck Session will begin November 3. Do you trust them?

Senator Chris Dodd's Livable Communities Act (S-1619) would control the people who live in towns and cities. This bill will write into U.S. law the so-called "smart-growth" provisions of Agenda 21, the U.N.'s vision of planned communities popularly called "sustainable development."

Sustainable development gives the government the authority to tell people where they may - or may not - construct a home or business, what materials may be used in the structure, and what plants and vegetation may be planted. By drawing lines on a map, government may strip private property of all value by simply declaring it to be a "conservation zone" where no development is allowed. Conversely, the same government can designate an Urban Boundary Zone, inside of which property values skyrocket - because that's the only area where development can occur.

The integrity of the people who draw the lines on the map is always above the temptation to accept gratuities for making sure that the lines on the map include the property of the people offering the gratuity.
