This is why I cant freakin stand most politicians or bureaucratic groups. Theres over 16k homeless people in Tampa. And theres a lot of run down housing, mainly in the Sulfer Springs area and East Tampa.
Hmmm....What to do? Lets crush the houses with bulldozers, and pretend the market is going to magically fix the homeless problem.
This is insanity. And people are talking about a housing recovery? What a load of shit. What, more senseless suburban sprawl is what we are after? Senseless planning that simply goes forever?
There arent ANY people who would like those houses? Ya, they are run down and in bad neighborhoods. But we are in an economic freefall that is ONLY being supported by Fed injections, with another 85 BILLION set to drop this Friday. (In case you missed my other post, thats 28 milllion per county in the good ol USA).
Assuming each house being crushed needs 40k put into it, thats 700 HOMES this month that could be renovated in Hillsborough County. 700 folks.
Eh, better just give that money to the banks and delay the inevitable crash a bit longer.
And like George Carlin said "Where are all the good decent people stepping up to replace these clowns" (in government).
