North Baton Rouge - Democrats.

Show me an area of poverty and crime and I will show you an area run by Democrats.

Go ahead...look up the Mayors.

re: Chauna Banks pens letter describing how to fix North BR.
If you all weren't already mindfricked by Chauna's "letter", here are Kibbles thoughts on the article:

quote:

Very powerful and I can only hope that it will speak to many closed hearts and cause them to open. The louder the narrative gets and the more people speak out, the harder it will be to ignore. We are truly standing in a moment where what happens now will forever shape what comes next. We can either continue as we are and go down the path of the destruction of a country built on diseased thinking , or we can enact the changes that should have been the very foundation and become healthy and THRIVE!!! We can keep ourselves down or we can build ourselves up! We are only as strong as our weakest link, and too many of our links are completely broken.

i could go somewhere with this, but in order to keep my posting privileges and keep an entire "team of lawyers" coming down on TigerDroppings, i'll refrain

The really frustrating part is that no one forces these people to play these scenarios out to an end.

Ok, we "give NBR money". What happens next?

Does the metro council decide what businesses are built and where?

Do Chauna Banks and Gary force Albertson's to build a facility on Plank Road?

Does SWB force developers to build new 2 story houses in 70805 or raze and rebuild old ones? Does the city/parish pay for/subsidize this?

Do we award government contracts to "black businesses" whether they can perform the work or meet the requirements or not?


They all love to shoot from the hip and say the things that their constituencies love to hear because they can get away with it. No one, other than their detractors, actually ask to see a business plan or more details of these fantasies.

This is like letting 4 year olds decide what they want to eat for dinner every night.

The woman is as dumb as dirt. Did you expect anything else from her? People like her in positions of city leadership are the reason BR is on the fast track to becoming Jackson 2.0.

It's terrifying that we have elected officials who think this is an appropriate thing to say in a public forum.

You should watch her during a council meeting. It's absolutely stunning.

I watched her argue that the city should pay for the flood damage to someone's home because another homeowner's trashcan fell in a ditch and clogged a culvert. Her reasoning as to why the city should be on the hook? The trashcan that clogged the culvert was provided to the homeowner by the city.

This is the part that pisses me off. I get what she's trying to say: "Fix the bad parts and don't worry about the good", but to say that the leader of a city shouldn't serve everyone equally is ludicrous. Especially since she's implying that this is currently the case it's just that south baton rouge gets the attention.

Serving ALL the people is a lot of work. Let's just pick one group of people and serve them....frick the rest

That's an attitude that will get the prosperous parts of the community to leave in a hurry.

You can't have that attitude then be completely shocked when a new millage is flat out rejected by the MC that represents the backbone of the city-parish's financial income.

Exactly. If we stay in LA and they start jacking up property taxes I'll just move my family a few miles south or east into AP or LP and take my tax dollars elsewhere.

They complain that there are no grocery stores in NBR despite it being a gold mine for foodstuff potential yet no stores are being built. They refuse to acknowledge the fact that no one wants to invest in a side of town that has no interest in investing in itself.

On Aug. 15 the Hi-Nabor located in the 7200 block of Winbourne Avenue received three feet of water inside. Surveillance video captured several people looting the store during an eight-hour period.

I think it was Chauna last year who told people that FEMA will not pay for your vehicle if you had another vehicle that you left in. She said "know how to answer". Basically encouraging fraud.
I doubt anything happens due to these latest comments. She can seemingly say whatever she wants and get by with it. I completely support job training programs, tutoring programs, those types of things. I'm a little opposed to just writing blank checks to NBR and hoping for the best.

This is the result of having uneducated people running the show. They have zero knowledge of economics yet they claim they can solve problems through such economic plans. They think the government makes their own money therefore it's free.

Well, she's got nothing to worry about there, so I'm not sure what her gripe is.

Gotta hand it to people like her and Gravy, though. They don't make any pretense of being something they're not.

Just remember that Gravy is on the NBR economic redevelopment board too. Yes, a person with zero economic or development knowledge, or even a college degree, is on a board tasked with revitalizing NBR's economy. That right there shows you just what a shitshow/race-shakedown that program is going to be.
