The King Edward and Harborwalk are commie plots

Yup. Did you know Standard Life, Harborwalk, and the King Edward are commie plots? A blogger on the Gulf Coast thinks so:

"Urban Renewal was the central planning concept of "revitalizing" a formerly bustling downtown area. On the surface, not a bad thing...but let's take a look at where this can go wrong. When you live, work, and play within less than a 15 minute walk from any place that you need to go, why do you need a vehicle? A bicycle will be sufficient enough for your needs, and if need be, put a basket on the front of that bike to help you carry a few extra items. If you need to go farther than that, well just simply ride that bike to the closest bus stop, that's why they created the "Bike 'n Bus" program. You don't NEED a dirty, hydrocarbon burning, pollution machine, just ride the bus...and we have to pay more because of the new Carbon Tax that will be implemented in 2013 (FYI).

The most humorous thing about the concept of Sustainable Development is that it was developed by Marxists in the 70's to limit the ability for people to over-achieve. The ironic part is, that in order to fulfill the goal of urban renewal, either the municipality or a private investor will have to build more buildings for people to live in along with more storefronts in those buildings...and that is just going to allow a small percentage to achieve. Thus they created "Public-Private Partnerships"(PPP). Now, when a city needs to build more housing, a public-private partnership is created with a local investor or contractor whereby the city has more control over the program than the private investor has over the project.

Once cities start implementing this "New Urbanism," they will not be able to reverse the damage. Sustainable Development supporters seek to prevent the development in areas by creating new laws. So, once urban renewal takes hold, suburban sprawl will not happen again

Mr. Avis makes a very good point about taxes but then delves into the new Red Fog over Amerika. However, he does not mention anything about flouride and natural bodily fluids. He continutes:

"The key to Sustainable Development is to redevelop urban areas by removing single-family residences and replace them with mixed-use, multi-story, multi-family buildings. That is to say, remove a house, replace it with large building 2 to 3 stories where there are apartments on the upper floors and store fronts on the bottom. Thereby encouraging those people to shop even within their own building...why drive to wal-mart...why even OWN a car or a house when you can rent downtown and have EVERYTHING you want within walking distance..." Rest of post

So we should bulldoze vacant office buildings downtown and replace them with two-car garage family homes. Got it.

That's not even worthy of a "dumb shit" moniker

this concept really works--just look at chicago, the bronx, south central LA...

If you call it what it is, you are a "dumb shit". The social thought scholars know that "sustainability" is going to be the loaded word of the next decade. If you can get your cause in on what is required to be sustainable, you will be set. Unfortunately, we are screwed.

I was in the Czech Republic this past summer and you can see the vestiges of communism in big multi-unit buildings that stand out in the picturesque countryside like a sore thumb reminder of totalitarian rule.

I don't go so far as to assign this to some commie plot, but the egalitarian nature of communism did spawn the type of urban planning of which he speaks. There's much more to it, though, like a strong central government and a lack of private enterprise and compulsory participation. Those don't translate here, at least not yet, but before you scoff and say it can't happen here, be aware that it did happen and could again should things go unchecked.

Harborwalk is not a communist plot. It's merely a bad idea.

Where have you been, 9:27? Well, other than the Czech Republic? It's already happening here. Can you check back and drop the names of several more places where you've been so we can acknowledge your status appropriately?

Yeah, that was the purpose of my comment, numbskull, because I live to impress a group of about 25 strangers by using a handle so no one knows who I am. Makes about as much sense as half of the codswallop you post here.

Where have y'all been in Mississippi in the last 2 years? The Mississippi Tea Party has been screaming this stuff under the banner of "Agenda 21" to anyone that will listen. They accused mayor DuPree back in 2011's Governor's race of being a party to it. Some so called Mississippi Republicans y'all turn out to be.

Of course the communists invented downtown living! Everyone knows that everyone lived in the suburbs and drove cars to work when our nation was founded. Duh!

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
