WE THE PEOPLE must get used to viewing a national labor union leader, women's organization leader, justice organization leader---even our national disability organizations have WALL STREET FAR-RIGHT CLINTON/OBAMA GLOBAL CORPORATE NEO-LIBERAL LEADERS. Yes, that includes our once lefty-ACLU----the ACLU is now working for the right of the global 1% and their 2% to accumulate more wealth. Here in Baltimore the ACLU is right-wing civil liberties which does just that---this is why they lead in policy promotion that steepens our city debt and they know these deals will end with Wall Street power and wealth with WE THE PEOPLE as losers.
Do you know Asian citizens are taught never to criticize authorities----always speak positively-----there is a fear of fighting against injustice. That is what makes it far-right authoritarian. Asian citizens have repressive action taken upon them in their communities---in the workplace----if they dissent or fight authorities. The politburo structure built on comrades being equal long ago became appointed insiders working for the national politburo. That system is filled with appointed committees---they make all of this sound left-leaning but it has always been far-right Libertarian Marxism. The rich in Asia simply install their own players at all levels allowing those national leaders to become millionaires and billionaires with one party rule and only those at the top allowed wealth--extreme wealth and extreme poverty. All of the structures of US cities as Foreign Economic Zones bring that 'MAO' policy calling it left-leaning when it is global corporate campus socialism----you have no rights, no freedom, no choices, no free will---and in exchange you live, eat, work, are schooled, AND get $3-6 a day $20-30 a day for the pleasure.
'Update: One smart friend points out that the ACLU pushed hard for the Koch side in the pivotal Citizens United case. That certainly makes the Koch brothers' support for the ACLU easier to square with their right-wing political identity. Also, Bruce Bartlett had some interesting thoughts in 2009 on libertarians and liberals'.
When Clinton was sent to take the Democratic to far-right Reagan Republican neo-liberalism the same started with our national labor and justice organizations. We see below how Republicans embraced the ACLU and 1% Wall Street became its major contribution. Right wing civil liberties is small government, accumulating wealth anyway you can----as liberal segues into being LIBERTARIAN MARXISM.
What's a Nice Republican Girl Like Me Doing in the Aclu? Paperback – June 1, 1997
by Sheila Suess Kennedy (Author)
ByA customeron June 4, 1997
Sheila Kennedy paints a convincing picture, reconciling civil libertarianism with the Republican Party of the Goldwater era. She argues that the traditional Republican values of "hands off" government closely match the ACLU's protection of the Bill of Rights from the powers of popular government.
Apart from Kennedy's main thesis, the book is a good primer for the issues facing the ACLU and the dangers of supporting the majority rule over minority rights. She explains the ACLU's position on free speech, privacy rights, separation of church and state, sexual and reproductive freedom, and support of public schools. Most importantly, she reminds us that the road to tyranny and oppression is paved with good intentions.
Kennedy holds that one of the main problems with current politics is the loss of civility; where cruel sound bytes have replaced meaningful debate and dialogue. She advocates tolerance for other people's beliefs and expresses hope that the traditional Republican Party will return from the control of the "Religious Right". All in all, a good introduction to civil liberties, the ACLU, and a good insight into what the Republican Party used to stand for.

'Republicans have a lot more in common with the ACLU than they think! For decades conservative Republicans have railed against the "liberal" American Civil Liberties Union and its state affiliates for defending unpopular causes from the rights of "criminals" to flag burning, pornography, and Nazi marches down Main Street. So what possessed the Indiana CLU to put a card-carrying Republican at its helm? How could anyone who supported George Bush be a civil libertarian?
In this fascinating first-hand account, Sheila S. Kennedy explains her amazement at stalwart conservatives who seem to think that being a Republican is utterly incompatible with a firm devotion to civil liberties. In perceptive, humorous, and easy-to-understand anecdotes, Kennedy, a self-described Goldwater Republican, skewers the rampant misrepresentations about civil libertarians, the ACLU, and those who have abandoned the libertarian heart of the GOP. With robust enthusiasm and a fervent conviction that the nation needs a "Liberty's Lawyer," Kennedy offers her thoughts on "The Great Prayer Wars," "The Criminal's Lobby versus Tax and Spend Conservatives," "The Gay Nineties and Family Values," "Purveyors of Filth at the Local Library," "A Day at the Legislature, or Can These People Really Be Representative?" and more'.
Here in Baltimore citizens have been living under these conditions for these few decades----extreme poverty by deliberate economic stagnation ----controlled housing by predatory slum landlords and any new development being handed to global investment firms. No one knows better than the groups below how all of this violates our US Constitution, our Bill of Rights as citizens guaranteed to be those legislators-----and much of it violates US Rule of Law since any attempts to allow business dealings with corporations known to have history of massive corporate frauds and inducing government corruption would not be allowed to operate in a US city.
EVERYONE KNOWS THESE GLOBAL PRIVATE EQUITY FIRMS ARE SIMPLY HEDGE FUNDS ENRICHED BY THESE FEW DECADES OF MASSIVE FRAUDS.
If we know from where far-right wing 1% Wall Street derives its concepts of CIVIL LIBERTIES----remember civil rights are not considered civil liberties. Although the ACLU is bound to support EQUAL PROTECTION but we are watching as they partner with 1% global Wall Street in breaking down equal opportunity and access-----because of NEGATIVE LIBERTY---PRAGMATIC NILISM-----this is the Libertarian view of civil liberties and as much as they want to sell the idea this is about EVERYONE'S CIVIL LIBERTIES----it is only the right of the rich to get progressively richer.
'Negative liberty is freedom from interference by other people. Negative liberty is primarily concerned with freedom from external restraint and contrasts with positive liberty (the possession of the power and resources to fulfil one's own potential). According to Thomas Hobbes, "a free man is he that in those things which by his strength and wit he is able to do is not hindered to do what he hath the will to do" (Leviathan, Part 2, Ch. XXI; thus alluding to liberty in its negative sense').
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Civil liberties or personal freedoms are personal guarantees and freedoms that the government cannot abridge, either by law or by judicial interpretation, without due process. Though the scope of the term differs between countries, civil liberties may include the freedom from torture, freedom from forced disappearance, freedom of conscience, freedom of press, freedom of religion, freedom of expression, freedom of assembly, the right to security and liberty, freedom of speech, the right to privacy, the right to
Most of the policies over these few decades that created such massive poverty and unemployment were driven by the groups below. It is Wall Street Baltimore Development 'labor and justice' organization bringing the US to operating just like China.
No doubt these groups do good community housing issues ---but they come out for the worst of policy.
'The coalition, known as Housing for All, includes the ACLU of Maryland, the Public Justice Center and the Community Law Center.
"A lot of renters are really struggling, and a lot of people are living in substandard conditions or living on the street," Cherkis said. "We have to make sure this is a priority."
Philip Garboden, an academic with the Poverty and Inequality Research Lab at the Johns Hopkins University, said Baltimore has an "enormous affordability gap."'
No one knows better than Public Justice and the ACLU these deals with global private equity firms tied to bonds for our public schools, public housing et al will end with all in the hands of those rich. These are the organizations that once fought for equal protection---equal opportunity and access to education and housing---and now they are partnered in ending all that----as are CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA. The worst of offenses regarding these Wall Street players is allowing these deals to be called PROPRIETARY----MEANING WE THE PEOPLE DO NOT KNOW WHO THESE 'STAKEHOLDERS' ARE.
Please don't support these US city bond deals----and it is happening in rural areas too. Republican voters should be just as mad as Democrats in losing all voice, all freedom and liberty, all choice and free will with this MOVING FORWARD TO FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONE STRUCTURE.
Havre de Grace voters will be asked to approve borrowing $4.5 million for Opera House, water plant

Havre de Grace mayor hopes to make Opera House a 'true community center' with movies, lectures, speeches
Havre de Grace residents will get to vote in May on whether the city should borrow $2.1 million to finish the Opera House renovations, which Mayor Bill Martin wants to turn into a broader cultural center of sorts.
The City Council voted unanimously Monday night to add a referendum question to the local election ballots allowing the city to issue bonds of $2.1 million, with an interest rate up to 3 percent for a 15-year term, "which will result in a lower annual outlay by the city and allow for completion of the renovations of the Opera House in one year."
Another referendum question will be on the May 3 city ballot for authority to borrow $2.4 million to make improvements to the city's water treatment plant.
Opera House loan
The city's current plan for the Opera House includes spending $250,000 each year, "which will result in the renovations being completed more than eight years from now and likely longer," according to the ballot question.
Proposed Havre de Grace budget includes Opera House completion, water and sewer fee increases The proposed borrowing would allow faster completion of the project, which has already received some state funding.
The 145-year-old Opera House on Union Avenue, whose backers launched a $3.2 million renovation last year, would not be just a home for "a big Norwegian woman with horns on her head," Martin said Monday, jokingly referring to a stereotypical image of an opera character.
"It will be a true community center," he promised about the building. "I do not want a building where the lights are only on weekends. I want it on every night."
Martin said he is even "actively engaged" in conversations with movie houses about possibly playing second-run movies there.
Havre de Grace needs help on water system finances to avoid 'catastrophic failure,' commission warns With the city's new library being completed across the street, Martin said he thinks the Opera House will be part of "one terrific corner."
"It says a lot about the character of people, to have a library on one corner and the Opera House on the other," he said.
Martin posted a video and personal statement on the city's website supporting the project and quoting former president John F. Kennedy: "If art is to nourish the roots of our culture, society must set the artist free to follow his vision wherever it takes him."
As the future of another prominent city building, Harford Memorial Hospital, remains uncertain, Martin added at the council meeting: "It would help the current owner or future owner if there was a lot of economic vitality down the street."
The city would ultimately be paying more by paying for the project more slowly, he said.
"I believe in the economics of the bond bill," he said. "I believe in the Opera House."
Council President Steve Gamatoria agreed the building will not be "just an opera center" and he said it will allow for uses "that we really don't have in the city," including possibly lectures and motivational speakers.
"It will be a multi-use facility, not strictly for stage only," he said. "The long-term cost to the city, if we do it piecemeal, and the true value, is really going to be lost if we don't do it now."
Councilman Randy Craig said the project "has been a long time in coming" and the city has worked hard to get a unique and talented architect.
"We work really hard to bring new tourists and visitors to the city," he said, adding the Opera House can attract more people to downtown.
Baxter Leppert, of the Opera House Foundation, urged the council to finish the renovation as fast as possible.
"It's extremely important that we do it now," he said, explaining the cost of materials and renovation will be much greater, if the city waits. He added that the facility will be a centerpiece not only for Havre de Grace, but also for the county and the state.
"We cannot sit back and let this opportunity ... go by the wayside," he said.
Water and sewer fund
The city also wants to increase its water capacity in hopes of paying off the debt on its water and sewer fund by selling water to other users.
The second ballot question passed by the City Council on Monday asks residents to let the city issue $2.4 million in bonds, to be paid back with interest up to 3 percent over 15 years, to fund "improvements to the city water plant to increase the water plant capacity which will result in reduced expenses and generate more income from the water plant operations."
If Havre de Grace has the capacity to treat more water, it could sell more water to other customers, "and I am not talking strictly in Havre de Grace," Gamatoria said.
He called the funding proposal "a true investment" in the city.
Councilman David Martin added that if the city is selling water, it will not be returning to Havre de Grace as wastewater.
"It's a win-win," he said. "The wastewater treatment plant is not impacted negatively and we are impacted positively by an additional cash flow."
Joe Kochenderfer, a longtime former council member and planning commission member, said although "I hate debt," he believes this funding request is "probably a necessary thing to do."
He pointed out the city has mostly been focused on the sewer operations of the water and sewer fund and it is interesting to now focus on the water side.
Gamatoria said the decision to take on debt is "scrutinized very heavily" by his colleagues, but they decided "that's what we have to do, to provide water."
"We have all recognized some of the problems around the country, in Flint, Mich., some of the other municipalities that had problems [with providing reliable water]," he said.
Gamatoria said he challenged himself and the city to come up with solutions to the existing debt as the city's reliance on hook-up fees has failed to come to fruition.
SAME GLOBAL PRIVATE EQUITY FIRM TIED TO OUR BALTIMORE PUBLIC PROPERTY ----Hmmm, I wonder how long that will be 'affordable' housing. The catch is this-----MARKET-RATE AFFORDABLE HOUSING-----this means as the gentrification of surrounding areas unfold the rents go up-----if housing around UMMS or Hopkins hits $1 million ----then these private equity 'affordable housing' rents will be affordable at $5,000 a month. That's the goal------all the Wall Street Baltimore Development 'labor and justice' organizations know this----so they are keeping it public and low-income to get the Federal, state, and local funding to rebuild it----then it goes luxury.
de Blasio is a progressive poser-----this usurping of our public property to private equity is very, very, very far-right 1% Wall Street global corporate neo-liberal.
Had they not tied private equity and bonds to these developments----and installed RENT CONTROL-----this would be REAL affordable housing-----
Have you noticed they always make citizens tied to rent control seem like people not working from Friends to Seinfeld?
"Friends" Rent Control
"Now about his apartment. It's at the top of a classic brownstone, with balconies and tall windows, and in Manhattan would cost thousands of dollars a month, but he's flat broke, see, and just to prove it, there's a place where the plaster has fallen off the wall and you can see the bare slats underneath. He has art hanging all over his apartment, except in front of those slats. All Alex has to do is sublet, and his financial worries are over."
— Roger Ebert on Alex and Emma
Your cast of good-looking single hangarounds live in a fancy apartment in the middle of the town. None of them seems to work, or if they do, they're usually actors, columnists or whatever leaves them with a lot of leisure time to have drama in their clean, well-furnished apartments. How can they afford it? They have Friends Rent Control, named after Friends, where the cast handwaved their situation by saying they had rent control. For those of you not up on your real estate law, rent control means that a landlord can only raise a tenant's rent by a certain percentage each year. It's entirely possible for the neighborhood to gentrify over the decades, and such a tenant might only pay a few hundred a month where new ones would pay thousands. This trope implies that the renters in the examples below all somehow benefit from this, even if they're young and the place would have always been expensive during their tenure. Illegal subletting may be involved.

Harlem's P.S. 186 reveals its stunning transformation into affordable housing
Before and after photos capture the restoration of this Italian Renaissance-style structure

The transformation of Hamilton Heights’s crumbling P.S. 186 structure into a charming apartment building for low and middle-income New Yorkers, and a new Boys and Girls Club of Harlem was officially unveiled Thursday morning. While the Boys and Girls club will have its entrance on 145th Street, residents will access the building on West 146th Street. The five-story building contains a total of 79 apartments that come in studios, one-bedrooms, and two-bedrooms.
The affordable housing lottery for the units kicked off in February this year, and about 75 percent of the apartments are now rented. They’re open to individuals making between $24,130 and $95,250 per year and for three-people households making between $31,008 and $122,400.
The project was developed by Monadnock Construction (think Carmel Place) along with Alembic and was created as part of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Housing New York plan to create and preserve 200,000 units of affordable housing. 53,000 new affordable homes have been created since de Blasio took office.
Dattner Architects was brought on to restore the Italian Renaissance-style building. Dattner chose to retain a lot of the original details from the building including the exterior terra cotta ornaments, arched openings, columns, and some of the apartments here now come with 14-foot-tall ceilings. The Boys and Girls Club here, which faces out on West 145th Street, spans 11,000-square-feet, and is located on the ground floor.
"Bringing families and kids back to this beautiful and historic school building is an amazing example of the work we are doing to re-energizing local communities, build affordable homes, and keep our children in safe and exceptional learning environments," de Blasio said in a statement.
The massive H-shaped building opened its doors in 1903, and operated as an elementary school for 72 years thereafter. Just some of the notable students who attended this school include Harry Belafonte and Arthur Mitchell, the latter of whom created the Dance Theater of Harlem. By the early 1970s, the building had gone into disrepair, and in 1975, the city decided the conditions there were too dangerous to continue operations, and the building was abandoned that year.
After sitting vacant for decades, the de Blasio administration decided that the site was a prime location for adaptive reuse. The restoration cost $48.6 million and was largely funded by the city’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD). With the unveiling on Thursday we now have several new images of the newly restored building, but before you scroll down and check those out, take a look at what Dattner Architects and Monadnock were working with before the transformation got underway.
Seinfeld was a comedy based on life in a RENT-CONTROLLED NYC apartment building. As we rebuild our city center we must include rent-controlled buildings. The current deals being made with private equity, bonds, and our public housing IS MARKET-RATE----NOT RENT CONTROLLED----so it will not remain REAL affordable housing.
Seinfeld Economics: The Apartment (Rent Control)
by Linda Ghent YOU TUBE
A price ceiling is a government-imposed limit on the price charged for a product. If the price ceiling is set below the market equilibrium price, a shortage will occur. This leads to a rationing problem.
A rationing mechanism is a system for choosing who gets how many goods during a shortage. Long lines are often used to ration goods in shortage (so the good is distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis). In addition, black markets often develop as a way of rationing goods that are in shortage.

Jerry lives in a rent controlled building. The only time an apartment opens up is when Mrs. Hudwalker dies, because rent controls create immobility. Elaine and Jerry find out about the opening, and because Elaine happens to be first in line, she gets it for $400 per month. Subsequently, Jerry gets worried about having Elaine living so close, and tells Elaine that she can't have the apartment--the super was offered a $5,000 bribe.

To end for now the discussion of Baltimore election referenda tied to installing US cities as Foreign Economic Zone policies moving more and more control of our city governance away from WE THE PEOPLE and into the hands of WE THE GLOBAL 1% ----please be aware of how these transportation plans for our city are developing. We discussed the privatization of all that is public transit in the city to global corporations so let's look at which corporation is doing all the consultant work for Baltimore City.
As usual it is a global corporation with a branch serving transportation design and as usual it's global branch in the US is based in Montgomery County. This is not a regional business-----it is not even a national business----and this is why the American people cannot rebuild a local economy. We cannot keep going to global corporations because it is this business that creates talent and strength AT HOME HERE IN BALTIMORE. So, everyone is now being forced to apply to these global corporations and work as a professional moving according to where their work is----rather than being that industrial engineer tied to our Baltimore Transportation Department working a career keeping our streets and transportation CURRENT AND EFFECTIVE. As with everything in Baltimore these few decades have seen all the funding that would have allowed Baltimore to have a strong public transit misappropriated----creating one of the worst in the nation public transit systems.

Inside the planning of Baltimore’s transit overhaulBy Joshua Diamond - January 27, 20161
How to refresh a bus system to better serve a city
Planning transportation around commuter patterns, community input, and accessibility can provide better, more useful service to riders.
Transit in the Baltimore region as offered by the Maryland Transit Administration has essentially been an ongoing expansion project since the inception of streetcar services in the late 19th century.
While there have been efforts to update the bus network, as well as the overall transit system, neither the city nor state has ever implemented a single comprehensive vision of how the region’s transit should operate. Instead, portions of prior planning efforts have been placed into service, creating the unbalanced system, which Baltimore residents and workers have struggled to rely upon for generations.
But new plans from MTA hope to re-align Baltimore buses so they serve, with greater accuracy, where people now live, work, and want to go.
What we do know is that many of the existing bus routes are too long, operate along the same corridors downtown and are not scheduled with dependable running times. Many of these routes, in fact, still follow similar alignments of those century-old streetcar routes. This has led to bus bunching across the system (which groups buses into irregular intervals and causes delays), modal connectivity issues, and an on-time performance of 84 percent, well below desired levels.
Ultimately, the system is unreliable and has been losing passengers at a steady rate over the past decade. According to the National Transit Database, MTA provided service to 45.8 passengers per revenue hour in fiscal year 2004, while only to 38.3 passengers per revenue hour in fiscal year 2013.
To stop this trend, the MTA approached the consulting teams of Foursquare Integrated Transportation Planning and Jacobs Engineering to develop a comprehensive transit vision, previously lacking in the region. This new transit vision, entitled BaltimoreLink, would consider both the operations of bus service at the individual route level and within the big picture of Baltimore transit.
The project began with an inclusive analysis of MTA’s existing services and the demographic profile in which they operate, including the use of Foursquare ITP’s proprietary transit propensity index. The index, used in various Foursquare ITP service planning and vision projects, details the likelihood of transit use in any given area for transit dependent and commuting populations in terms of trip origins and destinations, respectively. Next, MTA led a public outreach effort with Foursquare ITP’s support, gathering detailed feedback on users’ experiences and their aspirations for transit improvements and expansions in the region. This outreach consisted of public workshops, “pop-up” events, stakeholder meetings, operator feedback, and a robust online crowdsourcing and social-media component. The campaign collected more than 1,500 comments to be considered during the creation of the new system.
Downtown Baltimore bus map, from the BaltimoreLink proposal.
Based on the poor performance of the current system and the chief issues revealed through public outreach (e.g., system-wide reliability issues and missing crosstown connections), MTA and its consulting team have presented BaltimoreLink as a plan to reinvigorate how transit is offered and used in Baltimore. The backbone of this plan will be the CityLink – a high-frequency, higher-speed bus service that will provide radial service into and from downtown Baltimore along 12 transit corridors.
In the downtown, these 12 routes will be distributed throughout a new grid network to alleviate bus congestion and ensure that riders traveling there can make connections with only one transfer. These routes will be complimented by the LocalLink network, which consists of expanded crosstown services providing additional suburban-suburban connections, and feeder routes that will create greater transit coverage across the region.
BaltimoreLink is currently undergoing another round of public outreach, asking community members to respond to and evaluate the BaltimoreLink draft plan. Modifications and adjustments will be made through careful consideration of public input, with an updated plan to be released by mid-2016.
As the new system will take time for MTA riders to adjust to, a six-month User Education Program will begin in early 2017 to help riders new and seasoned find their way through the system. Upon BaltimoreLink’s full implementation in mid-2017, transit riders in Baltimore should find themselves with better access to a more efficient bus system that takes them where they want to go.
