Normal’s 2040 vision: CONTROL the population!
Starts on PDF page 73: http://normal.org/ArchiveCenter/ViewFile/Item/2214
Mayor picked the committee – people who think like him (just like his Council)
Government decides what is sustainable – no individual freedom to decide what is sustainable for you. Think Connect transit budgeting $12,000,000 losses.
Seriously Mark? Bloomington/Normal has been playing this tune for decades. Normal got Uptown, Bloomington got the Coliseum. Both do nothing to provide the one thing residents need: Good paying jobs.
We used to be Americans first, the great melting pot where people flocked to be free. New Mantra: change your life to accommodate other people.
How’s Europe doing with multiculturalism?
Spain Has No Government For 10 Months – Economy Grows, Unemployment Falls To 18.9%
Quote from the article:
But the absence of the necessary parliamentary majority has meant that no one has been able to do anything. There have been no bright plans to make things better, no more interventions into the economy. That economy has been allowed, left to, tootle along under its own steam and has done rather well as it does so.
Both Bloomington and Normal believe they have to create “bright plans” and intervene in the economy, the local economy decline will continue until citizens change their government.
