Deja Vu Reconstruction - Carpetbaggers are Ruining Alexandria

Hello, Yupette,

Thanks for your blog.

News from Alexandria isn't good. The out-of-state Carpetbaggers are ruining Alexandria, aided and abetted by local pols and absentee property owners who have allowed their properties to deteriorate while they luxuriate..in places like the Gold Coast of Florida, and Hawaii. It's like Reconstruction after the War Between the States.

Developer, Consultant, Planner, Lawyer Carpetbaggers are drawn by BRAC like flies are drawn by sugar to the West End of Alexandria, where they're trying to inflict Club Hedo on hardworking middle class Virginians who are maids at Mark Center, salespersons at Landmark, and attendants at the yuppie health clubs. More than 2200 affordable market-rate apartments are going to be eliminated via mixed-use yuppification, forcing workers to commute 40 miles one-way from the outer-outer suburbs. More 'Smart Growth'.

This is what we get from electing a Mayor who's not only pro-development, he's a GD developer! Another 'model minority' who appears to hate minorities. Like...guess who? Barack Obama.

Oh, forgot to mention, there's a couple more Club Hedo marinas planned for the waterfront in Old Town and the present GenOn generating station site.

Alex.

Barack Obama has behaved like a 'Good Negro' in 1961 who was accepted to membership in a 'whites only' country club, with the understanding that he would 'go along with the program'.

The consortium of REITs who want to redevelop the affordable neighborhoods near Mark Center are from out-of-state.

Yes, analogy would be if the first Negro member of the country club started proposing that the club's employees receive health insurance benefits.

There are many, many, middle class and working class people living in Fairfax County near Mark Center, off Columbia Pike.

It like they are going to gentrify the middle class entirely out and create a BRAC Yuppie City.

Who's driving the Obama Jobs Creation Bus? None other than one of America's Top 10 jobs outsourcers, GE CEO Jeff Immelt.

Obama only cares about his Harvard buds who are doing the gentrifying.

Many middle class service workers live in Alexandria and Fairfax County in the neighborhoods between Columbia Pike and S Beauregard Street.

Don't let the pols deceive you about BRAC 133. In 2005 they were clamoring to build the mega-mess on I-395.

REITs, their politickster pals, and the corporate-controlled media are afraid that Audrey Clement, and others like her, will be elected by fed up citizens.
