  • Hmmmm

    No Jack Evans a World Series title will never eclipse a Redskins Superbowl ever.

  • Frank Lee Mahdear

    Do any non-DC natives care about the Redskins? All of my friends either don't care about football or root for the team from wherever they originally came from. Football seems like it's becoming the sport of people who drink cheap, bad beer unironically.

    Let me be clear. Many aren't going to like what I'm about to say....but so what.

    When people (regardless of race) began to move into DC, they took over neighborhoods quickly. They got rid of projects esp. uptown using any excuse. (One was there was an excessive amount of pigeon poop! ) Whatever it takes I guess. However, somewhere along the way, the mentality of just keep moving the projects EOR because that's where most of them have been. Then, everyone wanted to 'catch a conscience' about low income housing so long as it didn't effect them. Push push push EOR. All the while, we were SCREAMING, help up clean house too. (Believe it or not, everyone over here isn't a non working, welfare mom). We struggled like the rest of the city, but when everyone pushed their litter over here, there wasn't anything we could do. For the past 6-7 yrs, we have hollered help us! But oh no, they have to live somewhere so let them live over there. And it was particularly ugly during the last redistricting. Check this website if you don't believe me. Kingman park, I'm talking to you. All your CM's love to push around dumb dumb Alexander. She's too lazy to fight.
    But what you didn't realize is that these losers would start coming back into your 'hood and robbing people. Well, now here it is. And no matter what, they are going to keep doing it.
    If you really want it to stop, REALLY want it to stop you can help us. Go to your CM's and tell them to cut that TANF and welfare crap and send these losers to work or else. The rest of the country is doing it; why not DC? Also, tell them to lobby to get HUD and CFS to do their jobs and follow up when we report these tramps with 6 kids in Section 8 and men living with them. If someone in the house has a record there are steps to ensure they get out or they lose their subsidy. The only way to stop this is to get rid of them and the rest will get in line.
    As long as you keep on with that 'as long as it's over there' BS, you're going to have to deal with this mess.
    Like it or not, it's true and you know it. Take it and do what you want with it. But I suggest someone start helping us dig out. You will have to free the WHOLE city not just your sweet street.
