NIMBY

Not In My Back Yard; someone who opposes anything built right by where they live.
NIMBYs cause a lot of things to not get done.

Used to describe a person or an attitude, NIMBY is an abbreviation for Not In My Back Yard. A NIMBY might agree that a community or a neigborhood needs a half-way house for convicts transitioning back to society, but doesn’t want it placed too close to his or her own home or in the neighborhood. property values. too much traffic. ugly woobly boxes
Although the community council supported the zoning change, the NIMBYs argued strongly against the expansion of the trailer park

    It was in jest two months ago when I began calling the Occupy crowd “dirt smelly hippies.” Sadly, the phrase is now accurate. In Portland, Oregon, the city shutdown two parks for two weeks to clean up after these pigs left. 70 dump-truck loads of trash were hauled away. Now in Santa Cruz, California, Occupy Santa Cruz protesters left behind 200 pounds worth of human feces near the Veterans Memorial Building, a community center. Occupy San Francisco had a similar problem with the Ferry Building as these animals are too stupid and uncivilized to act as if they are potty trained.

      During a contentious meeting Friday night, opponents of the new camp site presented a proposal to cancel the planned Saturday encampment and to create a committee to suggest alternative locations.

      Speaking in favor of choosing a location that was not near a school or residential neighborhood, Michaela Peters, the charter school’s admissions director, warned that picking a place without full support of the community could backfire.

    CAUGHT ON TAPE–
    The Obama-endorsed Occupy Milwaukee goons were caught giving children cigarettes in exchange for their signature to recall Governor Scott Walker.

    You can hear them chanting “We are the 99%” as they commit recall fraud.

    They’re broken and disillusioned in the Bay Area. These smelly “occupiers” aren’t even welcome in in the heart of progressive politics, both in San Francisco and Oakland, and now it appears they’re ready to pack it in.

    Shades of “Special Comment”! In a rant worthy of Keith Olbermann at the height of his Miss Precious Perfect histrionics, Mika Brezinski began today’s Morning Joe by tearing into Newt Gingrich for his recent suggestion that Occupy protestors should “get a job, right after you take a bath.”

    It wasn’t merely Mika’s words: “arrogant, disgusting, sickened.” So strongly ran Brzezinski’s rage that more than once her voice quavered and she seemed on some sort of emotional brink.

    The union’s home page on the Web, for instance, proudly declares, “CWA Supports the Occupy Movement.’’

    And it also declares, “CWAers have joined with the Occupy movement across the country to stand up against the destructive power of corporate greed.”

    The United Steelworkers (USW) Marxist president Leo Gerard believes if Big Labor can’t get what it wants through the ballot box it’s time to start cracking skulls.

    The Canadian-born Gerard loves a brawl. In 1999 he helped the violent anarchists protesting in Seattle block access to the World Trade Organization meetings. USW sent 1,400 goons to shut the talks down. Gerard’s agitation helped to push Algoma Steel of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, into bankruptcy in the 1990s.

    Legal documents have listed “defecation and drugs” among problems at a protest camp outside St Paul’s Cathedral, it has been revealed.

    Documents filed by City of London Corporation as part of an attempt to evict protesters said half of school parties had cancelled trips.

    Local business takings had fallen by up to 35%, the documents claimed.

    This is a brilliant piece by Thomas Sowell, who gets it better than any of us…and if you don’t get it, you need to spend the time to get informed about the damage that socialism inflicts on the world. We’ve seen the damage here in just a couple years so just imagine how bad it will be in four more years.

    Thomas Sowell (born June 30, 1930) is an American economist, social theorist, political philosopher, and author. A National Humanities Medal winner, he advocates laissez-faire economics and writes from a libertarian perspective. He is currently a Rose and Milton Friedman Senior Fellow on Public Policy at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University.

    By Dr. Sowell

    The current Occupy Wall Street movement is the best illustration to date
    of what President Barack Obama’s America looks like. It is an America
    where the lawless, unaccomplished, ignorant and incompetent rule. It is
    an America where those who have sacrificed nothing pillage and destroy
    the lives of those who have sacrificed greatly.

    It is an America where history is rewritten to honor dictators, murderers
    and thieves. It is an America where violence, racism, hatred, class warfare
    and murder are all promoted as acceptable means of overturning the American
    civil society.

    It is an America where humans have been degraded to the level of animals:
    defecating in public, having sex in public, devoid of basic hygiene. It is an
    America where the basic tenets of a civil society, including faith, family, a
    free press and individual rights, have been rejected. It is an America where
    our founding documents have been shredded and, with them, every person’s
    guaranteed liberties.

    It is an America where, ultimately, great suffering will come to the American
    people, but the rulers like Obama, Michelle Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi,
    Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Joe Biden, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, liberal
    college professors, union bosses and other loyal liberal/Communist Party members
    will live in opulent splendor.

    It is the America that Obama and the Democratic Party have created with the
    willing assistance of the American media, Hollywood , unions, universities, the
    Communist Party of America, the Black Panthers and numerous anti-American
    foreign entities.

    Barack Obama has brought more destruction upon this country in four years than
    any other event in the history of our nation, but it is just the beginning of what he
    and his comrades are capable of.

    The Occupy Wall Street movement is just another step in their plan for the
    annihilation of America .

    “Socialism, in general, has a record of failure so blatant that only an intellectual
    could ignore or evade it.”

    Thomas Sowell

    I know academia is completely detached from reality (hence the rampant belief in socialism) but these professors do realize students tuition pays their salaries?

    I think even the Occupiers themselves would admit they agree with Ahadinejad’s rants against Capitalism and American “imperialism,” the Jooos control the world stuff being the icing on the cake.

    According to the P/oed Patriot, Farrar, seen in the white C.P. USA shirt, is not only a Young Communist League leader, but he is also a member of Barack Obama’s Organizing for America and he organized a rally in 2009 for OFA to support President Obama’s health care bill. Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) was featured guest at Farrar’s event as well.
