WHAT IN THE HELL HAS HAPPENED TO THE WAY PEOPLE THINK?!

IN THE STATE WHERE I RESIDE THERES A LOT OF CHATTER ABOUT BUILDING LOW INCOME/SECTION 8 HOUSING UNITS “WITHIN” NEIGHBORHOODS WHERE HOMES SELL FOR $800,000 to 2.5 MILLION DOLLARS. THERES A FEW LARGE ADVOCACY GROUPS PUSHING FOR THIS AND EVEN A FEW THINGS BEING PUT IN FRONT OF OUR LOCAL POLITICIANS.

There talking about a section of land that might be available within these kind of neighborhoods where a section 8 building could be constructed.

What the F is this about?! Well, they say it’s for diversity - it will help poor people to feel better and it will expose the rich to the poor by living among one another. There’s a few other reasons but this is the one being most focused on.

Look, if I was someone who had a desire and goal to bust my ass to reach a point where I was pretty well off financially I do NOT want to have one of these buildings in my neighborhood - period!

There’s even something stated in the document about multi million dollar home sub-divisions that are “gated” and the consideration to give the code to the people they would house in the section 8 building because obviously they will need to get in and out!! The building would be constructed right smack dab in the neighborhood - not down the road a bit.

There’s always going to be some poor people. There’s always going to be people who are better off financially than others. That’s life.
