Is this project going to have a surety bond in place if this guy goes under or is the performance bond the same thing? The project sounds like a good use of the property but we tax payers lost big time the last time we put up money for a developer to develop this property.

Sure are------12 months pay for nine months "work". Plus a couple weeks for Holidays, Christmas Break, Spring Break, Snow Days, etc. Try to match that in the Real Working World.

Could you list what "infrastructure" this is for? It's apartments and retail space...not roads and sewers. And I don't see any parking in the illustration above. 20 apartments could easily mean 40 cars there 24x7. And I don't believe it's legal for the city to give anybody a property tax abatement except by a few means like enterprise zones for example. Anything targeting one…

Here we go again......... Giving away the farm---AGAIN---is about as brilliant as Deuce's parking lot that nobody needs.

The city might as well build the build and finance the structure itself. First off sell the property for what it is worth. 52 parking spots for 20 apartments and an eatery is that even enough to meet code.

Strawman: Obama's Right--It's Time to Fix the Immigration System........

2 months ago by Strawman

 

 I agree with President Obama.  I agree with Dick Durbin, Harry Reed, Nancy Pelosi and all those in Washington who say our immigration system is broken and in need of repair.  They’re right.  It’s a mess.  As it stands now ICE and the border agents aren’t being allowed to do their jobs, which has caused hardship for those coming into the country illegally.  We are endangering those we’re currently warehousing.  Human beings are being used by this country’s politicians as props.  You and I are being depicted as heartless, and in some cases racists, should we not condone the invasion of our southern border.

And today, with the news that this government is planning on getting into the Coyote business and shipping Hondurans directly to the states---with you and I paying the freight-----it’s time for a change.  A change you can believe in.

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/07/25/world/americas/administration-weighs-plan-to-move-processing-of-youths-seeking-entry-to-honduras-.html?_r=0

So here goes.

Commencing NOW, grant ICE the right to apprehend and determine---on the spot—whether someone should be allowed to enter the United States of America.  If ICE won’t do it, allow the states to handle it.

Then, deport them all.  Deport anyone who enters this country illegally.  Nationality matters not.  Age is not a factor.  Family isn’t a talking point. They all go.  And we should start with those we have under lock and key.  Feed them, clothe them and send them packing.  Adios amigo!!

Strawman, that’s a totally racist view of the situation.

OK, so I’m a racist. But that’s your politically correct view.  And it's your right to feel that way.  But before you put that terrible label on me, answer a few questions---if you can.

Where does it say the American citizen should lay down and take the nonsense we’re taking now?  Where is it written you and I are responsible for the care and feeding of those breaking and entering our country? 

And we grant them rights and comfort them?  What?   It doesn’t work that way anywhere else in the world.  It sure doesn’t work that way in Mexico, does it?  Ask Sgt. Tahmooressi how he likes the Mexican hospitality.  Oh, you forgot about him.  Your last name wouldn’t be Obama, would it? 

Am I thought to be a racist if I don’t pick up the check for a family of color at McDonalds?  Am I a racist if I don’t buy groceries for a single mother of six, all shapes, sizes and color?  If your answer is no, then why am I a racist if I don’t believe we should provide rights and entry into our country for just anyone who shows up???

I’ve called the Obama regime the “get even with Whitey” administration for years now. Isn’t the most recent turn of events evidence of that?  Isn’t it obvious Mr. Obama is working a plan to “change” the color and complexion of this country?  Sure he is.  And, by working more with the thugs running the countries in Central America than his own Congress, he’s made it painfully obvious.

 More money?  Sure!  Throw money at it, remember?  The start-up figure for this new refugee plan is 47 million dollars.  But we don’t know where the money is actually going or what we get for it, do we?  It’s 47 million out of the country into the hands of----can you give me a name here?  The Barack Obama Honduran library?   Nothing new here, nothing new.

And nothing new is going happen here in America.  Not with Boehner, McConnell and that bunch “representing” us.  They’re petrified one of the networks might call them mean spirited or racist.

Oh what the hell.  Maybe we should all just stop paying taxes and let this bunch of lefties run out of money.  I’m already thought to be a racist.  What’s a little tax evasion going to hurt?
