The Arlington Green Party will rally for homeless services and jobs creation before the December 12th County Board meeting outside the County Board Room, 2100 Clarendon Boulevard, Third Floor, at 8:30 AM. The Arlington Green Party is seeking a year-around homeless shelter for single adults and a public jobs program that provides living wage jobs for the homeless and unemployed.

Shame, Shame, Shame. How many THOUSANDS of single family homes, apartments. and condos are vacant in Arlington?

We'll know in a year, after the 2010 Census.

You will be happy to know that the Animal Welfare League has funded a major expansion to better care for homeless dogs.

Why am I not surprised? Arlington's Yuppie Establishment hates poor, working poor, middle class, Black, and Latino humans, but loves dogs.

Well, read today's Wall Street Journal (12-11-09). You will see that Bernie Madoff is treated better in a Federal Prison than the Homeless are treated by Arlington County.

Yes, dogs are treated better in Arlington than the homeless. There is a huge infrastructure that's dedicated to finding homes for homeless dogs.

Today's County Board meeting was really bad. What mean people. And they all celebrate Christmas.

What a charade. The County Board stripped the PRCR budget to pay for the welfare for the wealthy cultural center and the Gulf Branch Nature Center supporters go out and raise $10,000 which the County Board is only too happy to accept. Is this a model for the future? Do I have to raise $125,000 to get my street repaved while Zimmerman spends $100 million having Columbia Pike "streetscaped??

Is this County Board meeting a model for future County Board meetings? I hope not.

The libraries get held ransom for the County Board's extravagant priority projects next budget.

Why can't extravagances like the Sister Cities program be eliminated? Anyone know how many sister cities the County has? Five? Ten?

You can be assured that the County Board's pet projects will be fully funded, whether they are all-weather soccer fields or a $100 million streetscape for Columbia Pike.

Also, the local media want to get as much mileage and ad revenue out of next year's budget controversy as possible.

Sister Cities is another pet County Board project.

There are five sister cities. Great excuse for County Board members to travel abroad.

County Board doesn't follow its own meeting agenda anymore.

County Board is set to approve $23 million for Long Bridge Park and $460,000 for public art on Tuesday.

County Board doesn't care about the homeless, it made a big deal about getting a $250,0000 grant for HIV-AIDS treatment.

No, the County Board HATES the homeless.

Which is interesting because 3 of the 5 on the County Board are unemployed, and the fourth has a no-show job.
