The liberal utopia bites the dust. color me shocked Chicago closes infamous public housing complex - U.S. news - Life - msnbc.com By KAREN HAWKINS CHICAGO To some, Cabrini-Green's infamous high-rises were a symbol of urban blight towering testaments to the failure of Chicago public housing to safely give shelter to the poorest of the poor. But to the last residents being rousted from the last building, Cabrini-Green was simply home. Homes are owned by the resident. The closure of Cabrini's high-rises marks the end of an ugly era in public housing. The 70-acre development was initially hailed as a salvation for the city's poor that was emulated nationwide. But it quickly decayed into a virtual war-zone, the kind of place where little boys were gunned down on their way to school and little girls were sexually assaulted and left for dead in stairwells. But the buildings weren't well-maintained, and crime, gangs and drugs soon became rampant. There's a shock. Liberals built it then didn't take care of it. Along with changing the city's public housing system, the transformation plan has brought the political legacy of the powerful Daley family full circle. The elder Mayor Richard J. Daley is blamed for overseeing development of the high-rises decades ago, while his son, the current Mayor Richard M. Daley, has spent the last decade tearing them down and relocating residents. Gotta love the Daleys, no one family has better mob connections than them. Some resisting the move Alther Harris, 67, has lived in Cabrini for more than 30 years and considers it home. She moved to Cabrini's last high-rise a year ago from a building that has since been demolished. She said the series of recent moves have been "very, very stressful," she said. "You can't clean up right, you can't cook right, you can't eat right because you know that day is coming," said Harris, who lives with her daughter and three grandchildren. "It keeps a person's mind confused not really knowing what's coming next." awww, you poor poor baby. We took care of you and your kids for 30 years, and your complaining that your gonna get moved to a new place. there there, don't you fret none, big daddy liberal gonna get you a lawyer so you can sue big daddy government for all that mean ol' stress. Former Cabrini residents also have been offered vouchers for private apartments. Kenneth Hammond said the townhome he was offered wasn't done being rehabbed and had boards on its door and cracked windows. The private apartment he and his family were shown looked nice during the day, but the neighborhood turned unsafe at night, he said. "What we as residents want to do is be accommodated right and leave the building with pride and dignity," Hammond said. "We just want to be treated fairly." I had to stop reading there. I'm certain there more of this victum mentallity in this tripe, but I'm getting pissed off. Nearly 70 years of this shit and nothing has gotten better, so the fools on the left want to do it harder, thinking it will work this time.
