  2. Imagine tearing up heaven just because someone has this idea of equality based on where people live. I would love to see how this works when you bring Patterson quality in the middle of paradise. I am sure paradise will lose. It’s been proven over and over but the insane still persist in their insanity and in the process ruin the quality of life for others.

  5. You will note that “Fair Housing – Let Anyone Into The Neighborhood” Rosie has move out of the state and no longer lives in the neighborhood where the “fair housing” is being built.

    She’s living in her WALLED IN exclusive private community thousands of miles away.

  6. Many of them thought this would never happen. With all that wealth someone should’ve bought it preserved. Not for nothing but how is a family that’s in low income can survive in that neighborhood. How do you fit in. They are all millionaires over and over again. Can you imagine you have a family that’s living in alone come housing, how can your children mingle with these higher-ups. I don’t know how it’s going to work. There’s got to be a lot of stress on the family

  8. Maybe it’s time to make the developers using Fair Share to get their projects approved should to live next to one of the developments they create. But, I will guess that they live in pretty secluded and ‘exclusionary’ settings.
