DOWNTOWN GRAVY TRAIN-WRECK
MOVING FORWARD? BUILDING MOMENTUM? I INTEND TO TRAIN WRECK THE DOWNTOWN KLEPTOCRACY'S GRAVY TRAIN, LIKE A BURMESE TRAIN WRECK OVER THE RIVER KWAI.
Mayor henry; former Mayor Win Moses; and many of the Moses administration cronies ; and toadies- are responsible for the destruction we are seeing of downtown in the name of "progress"; and the blatant plundering and loting of the city taxpayers walltes; purses and bank accounts - the legacy fund is burninga hole in their pockets; plun dering all the city resources to build these no money down get rich quick schemes- garish donwtown monstrosities- which are all funded by borrowing; and which ; when completed- will leave us all with a burlap sack of ious,a city full of empty over built buildings; while these PLUTOCRATS; AND KLEPTOCRATS fill their carpetbags full of OUR hard earned cash- and flee to some bank ing haven tropical paradise.
the south of the tracks "affordable housing- is being bulldozed in the name of gentrification; driving the poor and minorities ever farther from downtown; and the debris is being looted- sent to the Henry family of scrap mills- copper plumbing, wiring; aluminum siding, asphalt shingles to the paving corporations; and the remaining wood- sold for newspaper pulp; mulch; or wood pellets.or pallets.
all the hardware fittings plumbing fixtures; all the misch- vintage retro- cabint knobs, window latches, faucets, bath tubs etc- sold on E-Bay; etc.
and what will be left? a decimated south side property tax base; one or 2 homes remaining on an otherwise vaccant green space-- google "detroit blight elimination"- we do not want this..
NBH code- is spending 25,000 bucks on ever house demolished- every 2nd or rd house with 50K or 75K- could be rehabbed, renovated, remodeled- and sold as a historical fixer-upper- to residents moving in, or moving up.
meanwhile- we will also see the GHETTO-IZATION- of any high traffic commercial corners; and newly vacated; bulldozed sites- for liquor stores; tobacco shops, lottery and spice stores; convenience stores/gas stations; and all the other un desirable PARASITICAL businesses that follow rampant poverty. the jobs base and work force has declined by around 8000 folks- who have left town for better opportunities; in warmer climates.
make no mistake- all this downtown development is to hide the sad fact fort wayne is in a slow death spiral- we area BILLION DOLLARS IN DEBT- from tax abatement /corporate welfare give aways; which WE all will have to pa for; theres the looming 400MILLION DOLLAR TUNNEL- the CSO separation TUNNEL- FROM FOSTER PARK, TO THE DWENGER AVE SEWER TREATMENT PLANT, DUE TO THE epa'S CONSENT DECREE.
ALL THE NEIGHBORHOOD STREETS, SIDEWALKS, CURBS; MAINTENANCE- IS being diverted away from the NBH's for the downtown KLEPTOCRACY.
THERES LONG STANDING VACANT BIG BOX STORE FRONTS ALL OVER TOWN; AND THE ge plant; and the wayne pump plant? WELl- A GOLD MINE FOR SCRAPPERS- BRICKS; COPPER, STEEL, ALUMINUM, and so on- and what will take it s place? empty lots, former industrial sites, brown fileds in need of federal superfund cash..
we are all being sold a bill of goods by a silver haired devil- P Thomas Henry's Burnem and Bilkums flying circus..
Ive lived in FTW too long- im a walking encyclopedia of FTW historical trivia.. I know what im talking about.
im not just some addled reality challenged typical scrub democrat- like weve seen; and im not backed by the Establishment- who will perpetuate the KLEPTOCRACY for the benefit of the Plutocrats..
and as for the FWPD- CRIMINAL RACKETS- thats another day- but all THEIR schemes, and shenanigans will end as well.
whew.. this will make a great blog post!
