Re: The Huntington | 252, 258, and 264 Huntington Avenue

Telling poor people to vote for rich people who could give a shit about them is actually a pretty good way to alienate people.

Re: The Huntington | 252, 258, and 264 Huntington Avenue

Not. But I do think it would be reasonable to be angry about exploitation.

Re: The Huntington | 252, 258, and 264 Huntington Avenue

There are much more important ways to involve yourself in your community and politically than voting. Especially for president, where in MA it literally means nothing.

Re: The Huntington | 252, 258, and 264 Huntington Avenue

Re: The Huntington | 252, 258, and 264 Huntington Avenue

Nothing I said had any relation to that but smears without actually arguing any point is real easy for you huh?

Re: The Huntington | 252, 258, and 264 Huntington Avenue

Well first, recessions are an intrinsic part of capitalism and absolutely coming in a bubble like this so if anyone is rooting for a recession it is you not me.

Re: The Hub on Causeway (née TD Garden Towers) | 80 Causeway Street | West End

Well first no one calls themselves a neo-collectivist, no one for that matter calls themselves a collectivist or has for about a century. That term is an effort to collapse differing and often...

Re: The Huntington | 252, 258, and 264 Huntington Avenue

You are a straight fool if you actually think that a basic (and propagandistic) supply and demand arguments apply to fixed but speculative goods like housing. This is where capitalist economics...

That vision was fuck poor people lets get rid of their neighborhoods and build highways and barren concrete plazas everywhere. Bold visions aren't necessarily good ones.

Re: What's Happening With Project X?

Re: Portside at Pier One | 29 Marginal Street (Pier 1, Pier 5) | East Boston

Re: Commonwealth Avenue Improvement Project

This street is wildly dangerous for biking so I'm glad to see this, these changes matter far more in terms of actually living in this city than how many tall buildings we have.

Re: One Bromfield | 1 Bromfield Street | Downtown

Kung fu video is a Boston staple. This block definitely isn't "abandoned." Grit and cheap stores are necessary in a city not everything should be luxury coffeeshops and condos.

I don't see why anyone without a proclivity for the most base and knee jerk racism would have a problem with that.
