There has been 36 minutes since you "spoke". Nobody "spoke" in that time.There were 4hrs-25min before that for anyone to "speak" about anything they wanted... including the Barn Village.
In that entire 5 hr time period, nobody posted one word about the Barn Village, including YOU. Pat.
Your entire post was about a subject other than the Barn Village...
You are right. I don't know the diff. between an online forum and a chatroom. And YOU don't know the difference between a civil disagreement and a personal attack. You (and others) take much or all of what is said here (by me and others) as an attack on you personally. That is your prerogative, but does not mean our opinions are invalid or that they must wait till the headline clears us to verbalize the exact thoughts generated by the conversation.
Grow up, bring your best arguments, and participate ... or don't ... I don't care.
Call me every name in the book. Debate me. Ridicule me. Prove me wrong. Insult me. Laugh at me. Laugh with me...
Throw yourself into the fray; or sit quietly in the shadows with the masses... but stop whining and bitchin' about what others do and say.
"Once more into the Fray...
Into the last good fight I'll ever know.
Live and Die on this day...
Live and die on this day... "
I actually do agree with Madison to some degree. It is good to have a second language and spanish certainly is a logical choice.
I just wish the logic she uses when she says "...be more than just English speaking drones, requiring others to oblige our language when we travel abroad...." worked BOTH WAYS. Why, if I can't go to Mexico and get a drivers license in ENGLISH, should a Mexican expect to come here and get one in SPANISH???
They perfected it and exported it back to the US in the 1950's and '60's, Scott.

I wonder if people like Pat ever have conversations in real life in which they condemn other participants for taking the conversation off into topics other than the original comment...
If you have something to say about the Barn Village then spill it, Pat. Nobody is stopping you.
What I find really sad is that this society seems so dominated by it's "feelings" that it is affraid to express them outside of a group that likely already agrees with them and will not hurt their "feelings".
It is sad, really. How does one dominate a forum with apparent limitless ability to post comments????
Pushing the "hamburger" symbol on the cash register works in EVERY language. However, if you can't make change for 20 US Dollars (something many American high school grads seem to suffer with) then you can't make change for 20 Pesos either.
If we can't educate them in ONE language (and we can't) then how exactly are they gonna get educated in multiple languages???
And then there's the pervasive tendency of communist states to dis-allow private gun ownership. One can see almost daily examples around the world of abuses of individuals by states which have disallowed private gun ownership; today's headline example is in Ukraine. People there being slapped around by thugs... COMMUNIST thugs, FOREIGN, INVADING COMMUNIST THUGS... and they have no means of self-defense.
The state that promised to protect them is the one killing them or, at the very least, stepping aside and allowind others to do so...
Oh, I forgot number 10... Government Education... THE Communist wet dream... What a great success the American "public fool system" has been, no? The communists laugh their asses off every time they think of the success they had destroying this country through our endoctrination centers called "schools"...
Have you ever even READ the 10 pillars of the Communist Manifesto, Cindy?
1) Abolition of private property in land and application of all rents of land to public purpose.
The courts have interpreted the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution (1868) to give the government far more "eminent domain" power than was originally intended, Under the rubric of "eminent domain" and various zoning regulations, land use regulations by the Bureau of Land Managementproperty taxes, and "environmental" excuses, private property rights have become very diluted and private property in landis, vehicles, and other forms are seized almost every day in this country under the "forfeiture" provisions of the RICO statutes and the so-called War on Drugs.
2) A heavy progressive or graduated income tax. (needs little explination)
3) Abolition of all rights of inheritance. (with the current death tax at what?? 55%... we are more than half way there, no??)
5) Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly. (did you know about the recent proposal to get the US Post Office into the Mortgage business?? Add that to Fannnie Mae and Freddie Mac and we are well on our way on this one too, no???)
9) Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the population over the country. (have you heard about the president's latest proposal to create "agriculture zones" that encourage population shifts toward areas that the gubbamint supposes need to be "encouraged"??)
That's six out of ten, and the other 4 are arguably comming into view over America's horizon.
You need to re-examine your history book, encyclopedia and dictionary, Cindy.
Communism is EXACTLY what it is.
10) Free education for all children in government schools. (we got that one down pat)
"The fact that the city would consider doing anything with the lot other than provide "affordable housing" just proves to the extent that inclusionary zoning was just a city government shakedown of developers.
If the objective was affordable housing then there would be no legal way for the city to do anything with the lot other than provide affordable housing." --Scott W.
Scott is, of course, exactly right. Affordable Housing is nothing more than a shakedown which costs EVERYONE unecessarily in the long run.
Many people can't find a job for the same reason that a bank robber can't find a cop...
But here she would be given affordable housing help, and people would opine for her plight, even though she was here of her own volition...
