This file and the older Sustainable files are a visual affirmation of what my other files posted on Scribed are warning us about. It is visual, we here in the San Fernando Valley can see the high density apartments off of Vanowen and Variel, Reseda and Plummer, Corbin and Plummer, Sherman Way and Wilbur, De Soto and Victory and Hollywood’s high-rise apartments. Redistribution of wealth is to punish the productive and reward the takers. It is about a country’s sovereignty. It is about race baiting and the hatred of capitalism. The importation of socialist and communist. It is about the United Nations agenda to create their One World Order and how the Obama administration is advancing this, see the Leon Peneta file. It is about how the Obama administration is giving the Middle East and Africa to the Muslim Brotherhood.

In this file, on PDF page 10, you will find LA’s effort to solve the housing crisis in the coming years: http://mayor.lacity.org/stellent/groups/electofficials/@myr_ch_contributor/documents/co nributor_web_content/lacityp_005875.pdf The city will partner with the private sector to spend $5 billion in affordable housing. This is part of that redistribution of wealth Obama was talking about and the Agenda 21 the United Nations is pushing.

Here are a few paragraphs:
A central challenge in the Los Angeles affordable housing market entails bridging the gap between the housing we produce and the housing we need. Housing That Works tackles this challenge by directing public resources toward the production and preservation of 20,000 homes across the income spectrum.

Adding Housing for Families at Every Income Level
The Mayor’s plan focuses on the disparity between what is built and what our community needs, and set specific goals for housing across the income spectrum.

Creating Sustainable Transit Communities
The Mayor’s plan focuses new development in the areas where it makes the most sense – along public transit corridors and close to job centers. Under his leadership, this plan creates 20 transit district plans in 5 years, launches a sustainable community initiative, protects the environment, connects homes and places of work, and improves the quality of life for every Angeleno.

Promoting Mixed Income Housing
Under the Mayor’s leadership the City will adopt a mixed-income housing ordinance, ensuring that every community and every new development includes housing for families of all income levels and expands the housing options for LA’s workforce.

So do you get that kids? Villaraigosa is going to force his Social Engineering, his Integrated communities on us by building massive apartment buildings along the transit lines. That is what he means when he says Mixed Income Housing. Our government is going to select the winners in this world.

The city already owns 30,000 units and he wants to add another 20,000 units. He explains this a little better on PDF page 16. PDF page 19 has a clear map, incomplete, but clear.

Here’s my problem with this.
First of all, I have to cross Canoga Ave. and the Orange Line everyday and I already see that the Orange Line makes me wait too often three green lights to get across. The same thing happens on De Soto crossing Victory. It will become much worse when they densify it with their mixed-use-high-density apartments, some with retail on the ground floor. I know that this is Redistribution of Wealth. The government should not be building housing and they should not be selecting the developers that will profit. Our city was much better off when we attracted the educated and the high achievers, the high tech employers and aerospace. The high achievers moved out of the San Fernando Valley when they tried integrating our kids thru forced bussing in the 70s and 80s and now they are trying it again. Subsidized housing creates people dependent on the government and fosters single parent families. Dependent people become violent when what they perceive as entitlements are cut back as demonstrated in Spain, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Argentina, Wisconsin, Michigan, the LA teachers and the LA dock workers. I read the white papers listed below. I see that 4 of our 4 mayoral candidates are going to proceed with this path to ruin. I want my house value to go up, not down. They just built two new low-income-high-density units in my neighborhood. The busses are all subsidized, they can’t stand on their own.
