Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, May 22, 2019

Loving, the head of Destination: Home, thinks the North Bayshore plan should include a lot more affordable housing. But she and others say it's not just about money. There needs to be political will -- people have to want to help their neighbors in need. Some Silicon Valley residents don't want new apartment buildings changing their suburban towns, and they get angry at the thought of affordable housing bringing poorer people to their neighborhoods. Two years ago, about 500 local residents showed up at a meeting to discuss small, temporary housing in San Jose. Many screamed and shouted at Loving and her colleagues. At one point, the crowd chanted "build a wall" to keep homeless people away.

Hilarious. I bet they drive a lot of Tesla Virtuemobiles as well. Saving the planet!

The image of Nullifidian rolling coal, and fumigating Andrea, a mattress on a ten-speed, is one we should all enjoy.

You are what is wrong with the Democrats. It is liberals like you that give all liberals a bad image. This is disgusting, human waste running into the street, but the officer is a bully? This is exactly why I do not belong to a party, and I am registered unaffiliated. I could not be in the same boat as you, or the Republicans licking Trumps heels. There must be change.

Sounds like another task force will be needed to find out why Democratic mayors can't do their most basic jobs.

Republicans licking Trumps heels.

Republicans aren't licking Trumps heels, they have been stalling waiting for all the Mueller crap to blow over before they commit to anything, Democrats know it which is why they are throwing more garbage in the bin.

"Republicans aren't licking Trumps heels"

Of course they are, right after the main course of swallowing Trump's lies. It's like dessert for them.

"Democrats know it which is why they are throwing more garbage in the bin."

Tell us: why do you accept a President who lies to you like you're a grifter's mark?
