Re: Politics

Fang, I find your ideas on treatment of immigrants as expressed here to be really pretty nasty. And I must say, I'm surprised. I agree with Fuckyou that immigrants are pretty savvy at sorting geographic variations in economic conditions for themselves and aligning their movements in accord with tho...

Re: Politics

I'm sure this is not what you're advocating, but the line between what I think you are advocating and a situation where immigrants are "welcomed" into "compassion camps" and "allowed" to perform slave labor to earn citizenship seems to me to be a lot narrower than you seem to think. I certainly not...

Re: Rankings, lists, and such

I think the ways one becomes more conservative as one ages might have changed. I think it may be true that one becomes increasingly fiscally conservative as one ages. However, I think we are seeing a hybrid of people becoming fiscally conservative, and still remain liberal on many social issues. Peo...

Re: Politics

I'm not sure the government should be empowered to dictate to people where they'll live, and I'm not really into viewing immigrants as merely tools to accomplish some end (be it economic growth, or revitalizing depopulated communities, or funding the retirement of existing citizens, or whatever), a...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

I can't think of any off the top of my head. I have advocated on here before about redeveloping shopping malls by building a lot more on-site apartment buildings--especially taking into accounts the needs of seniors. This includes things like libraries, community centers, assisted-living and nursing...

Re: OFFICIAL - ARTerra (21st and Wyandotte)

I also like the contrast compared to surrounding buildings. Chicago and Detroit are full of older tan-colored brick houses and buildings. In fact, it seems there are more tan-colored buildings in Detroit than red-colored brick. This conversation reminded me of one I had years ago outside the downtow...

I find some of the immigration really interesting.

Re: How Kansas City got its' name

I am not saying the Kanza tribe didn't exist, or that they didn't have villages.
