Is it not "Ukraine", as opposed to "The Ukraine"?

Jarvis, if only wealthy people can live in a given place, who then, will do the manual labor?

Indeed. When a story cannot be spun about one's race, or about "the children", poor people tend to be cast aside.

Apples to oranges, baby... your arguments just don't add up. And by the way, I don't know what a putz or mashugana is, but if it's something you consider offensive... well, thank you for the compliment!!

Somebody once said to me, in speaking of other co-workers: "What a bunch of Yutzes!" I asked "what's a Yutz", so he says to me "Do you know what a Putz is?"...to which I said, "yes", then he replied "Now you know what a Yutz is!"
I just had to share that, and I'm sure you all are most grateful that I did.

If the tenants had been white, and Majestic Asset Management were owned by someone of another race, would you (The Independent) be mentioning race?
Do you realize that every time you throw out the Race Card randomly that you create a situation where people are more likely to not believe you when you *do* make a legitimate accusation of racism?
Bad journalism on your part, you can do better, and should do better.

We must commend Iammadeofyou for having the fortitude to take us all on, in front of the all who read these comments.
So what if they are afraid to post their real name. (Sarcasm intended)

@Iammadeofyou: It is possible some of the people here may be married.
I quite agree with you about the cowerdice of anonymous bloggers, but some of us don't have the courage you do to post our feeling in front of anybody who wants to read them.
Don't give up on us though, as we are works in progress.

Re-reading your post, I see that now Geeber. My apologies.

"It's ridiculous for the Jarvis types to be bitching about UCSB. Yeah, UCSB is and has been out of control in their expansion and impact on our area. That doesn't mean the Jarvis types have a leg to stand on. They have fought growth controls here for years and are hypocrites for blasting UCSB."

So we should just roll over because UCSB is sacred to you, Geeber? The bottom line is that you can't fit ten pounds of sand into a five-pound bag, regardless of your ideology.
