Biden - Don't Ride The Subway

President Joe Biden sounded the Alarm

While The Resident is telling you NOT to Panic it seems the Vice President is telling you otherwise...

NBC New York: "I would not be at this point ... [be] suggesting they ride the subway,"  Biden said when asked whether he would advise family members to use public transportation.

Biden made his comments during a brief interview on NBC's "Today" show during an interview with Matt Lauer.

The vice president said if one person sneezes on a plane "it goes all the way through the aircraft."

Biden said the advice to his family differs from that of the federal government's to the public because, "That's me."

But you know, that 's Big Mouth Joe for ya! 

I moved out and away purposely and I am glad I did so no worry in me riding the subways for now however how will his diarrhea of the mouth affect The Residents Urban Dwelling plans?...

Ron Utt, the Antiplanner’s faithful ally, has uncovered the first steps of President Obama’s plan to force smart growth on those parts of the country that managed to escape the housing bubble. The departments of Transportation and Housing & Urban Development have signed a joint agreement to impose smart growth on the entire nation.

Under the agreement, the departments will “have every major metropolitan area in the country conduct integrated housing, transportation, and land use planning and investment in the next four years.” Of course, nearly all of the metropolitan areas that already did such integrated planning suffered housing bubbles, while most of those that did not did not have bubbles. The effect of Obama’s plan will be to make the next housing bubble much worse than the one that caused the current financial crisis.

Obama first hinted about this plan in a town hall meeting in February. “The days where we’re just building sprawl forever, those days are over,” he told a group in Fort Myers, Florida. “I think that Republicans, Democrats, everybody recognizes that that’s not a smart way to design communities.” Not everybody.

Ironically, earlier in the town hall meeting, Obama pointed to a local couple who were forced by the recession to make a big “sacrifices,” said the president: “they’ve sold their home and moved into a smaller one.” It isn’t clear from the press statement whether he was bemoaning or celebrating their sacrifice. After all, the whole point of smart growth is to force more people — not everyone, certainly (the planners will want to stay on their quarter-acre lots), but more than now — to live in smaller homes.

Never forget that the original definition of the word “smart” was not “wise” or “intelligent,” but “a sharp, stinging pain.” Obama’s plans will inflict pain on many more Americans.


Update lmao...

Please pay no attention to what the Vice President actually says when it differs from the official White House line on swine flu
