Dandy posted a thing about being the parent of 6 kids. Most of the time, I am envious. I have 2 kids, but if I’d have been thinking, I would definitely have had more. Sure, zero population growth, etc. But my 10th grade history teacher told us that we actually should have more kids, because it was the kids of well-educated kids like us that were going to solve the world’s problems. I’m not sure that’s true, but I do think it would have been fun to have a few more kids.
But this is all just to introduce an email posted to my neighborhood email list. The “plan” she refers to is a plan, shot down by the neighborhood, to enlarge the sidewalk in front of a local strip of stores. Yes, very dastardly.
Hi, I thought this plan was shot down last year and
for good reasonssssssssssssssss, esp. impact on car
traffic which is bad enough already!
Why is the city making plans for a place for more baby
strollers? What happened to population growth Zero?
Can’t baby people use Live Oak park a few steps away?
This is just one more reason why I want to move out of
this section of town: no parking due to Cxx Games and
church parking and neighbros with 6 cars for two
people and they park some on not their street, but in
front of my house, for months on end, but now we have
to make space for people’s baby strollers (and results
of their past sex life.) ZERO POPULATION GROWN USED TO
BE A BANNER IN B_______ IN THE 70S. WHAT HAPPENED TO
SMART B_______ CONSCIOUSNESS? IT HAS GONE DOWN THE
DRAIN DUE TO THE GREEDY YOUNG PEOPLE WITH THEIR OH SO
SO.,What happened to petitions by the residents here
to oppose something for people who don’t live here but
will take up more of our parking spaces and block
traffic making people late for work etc.
I don’t get this.
Aren’t there any lawyers or brains in this
neighborhood to combat such idiotic plans? Doesn’t the
city have anything better to do, like fight crime IN
SOUTH AND WEST B_______’S DRUG DEALING NEIGHBORHOODS
and car vandalism in our area?
Am I the only one fed up?
WHO IS OUR COUNCIL PERSON AND WHAT IS HER PHONE NUMBER
AND WHAT IS SHE DOING TO FIGHT PLANS TO INVADE AND
TAKE OVER OUR NEIGHBORHOOD BY BABY STROLLERS?
residents first, residednts first, residents first,
homeowners first, longtime residents first, baby
boomers first before baby strolllers, not in my
neighborhood you don’t. How about signs everywhere
protesting the plan all over the area? Bumper
stickers, street b anners, lets get visual and lets
get vocal. Don’t put up with this! Don’t accept
compromise. Don’t say mayb e. Just say NO! KEEP OUT.
Soon to move at this rate,
Hope you get it together and get that councilperson
acting or fire her .
Get me out of No. B_______ ASAP!
I hate this neighborhood!
anonymous cuz i know i will piss someone off, maybe a
grandparent of stupid babies and baby strollelrs.
Where do these people get all this money to raise
babies in this day and age????????
I’ve thought of writing a message back suggesting that she mount machine guns in each of the “traffic calming circles” that have been installed lately. then we could just shoot anyone we don’t know who tries to enter our neighborhood. And babies, of course.
