Eileen Mashimo and Ken Eyring from the Southern New Hampshire 912 group www.SouthernNH912.com and www.nhteapartycoalition.org joined me to discuss the “sustainable communities initiative” in New Hampshire. What is it? It’s many things and here are just a few of the “ideas” derived from this initiative and related plans. EPA, DOT and HUD are in bed together and they’re upset about all those “impediments to fair housing”. What are they, you ask? HUD will make the final determination of exactly what “they” are. They make it up as they go along. There is “for profit” demographic research taking place. There’s a “regional equity” team too. Oh and they’re not on your side. Well, they might be on your side if you meet the criteria of the “underserved” population.
“Divorcing your car” was another one of their goals. Hmm. How do you think that is going to work for you? Do you have a “walk-able, livable toolkit”? Don’t worry; it’ll be coming your way soon. The “New Urbanist” Conference was mentioned. How much do you wanna bet those “new urbanists” don’t live anywhere near an “urban” area? These “urbanists” claim their “core values” are grounded in “equity and social justice” Hmmm. I wonder how much of my equity will be redistributed for their “social justice”? Sure doesn’t sound very equitable to me? Does it to you?
Cedargrove Institute for Sustainable Communities was mentioned and so was Action Media. I think you better look them up. Did your town, county or region take grant money? No idea? Not to worry. HUD will be limiting recipient discretion about how it is used anyway so you don’t have to worry your pretty little head over it.
They claim they are “building one America”; they are, but it’s one where freedom no longer lives and you have become prey.
