I am hearing a lot about statehood lately. I hope this movement reaches critical mass soon...

Robby said...

Statehood is a pipe dream, I would rather just not pay federal income taxes. DC is a federal extraction per the constitution. School reform was legislated in the congress. We can't pick and choose.

If we don't pay federal taxes, then DC will just raised theirs to spend on SUV and hiring political friends and their kids. No thanks.

DC's energies are better used elsewhere. Statehood won't happen because there will never be the votes

Pop goes the Funky Flea Market at Union Market, moving to Petworthish sort of Columbia Heights hood at Sherman Ave and Euclid NW. Does anyone know why? Although i've only brought something from a vendor one time in the six years that they've been there i 'm gonna miss the Funky Flea market here in near northeast.

tarisdaddy,
the lease was just up. The lot is owned by some developers, so they might be ready to move on it. When exactly is the question. I, too, will miss the flea market. I've found lots of good stuff there, and I love the tacos.

Because nothing says, "hey give me more say in the political discourse" than vandalism.

I for one, hope DC never gets representation in Congress. It's not constitutional and our local politicians illustrate only hacks and frauds can get elected in DC.

Was this the last weekend for the fleamarket? Or will they run through the end of May?

I would have to think that Vincent Gray and Kwamer Brown have set the statehood movement back at least 10 years.

You have to have another election to vote them out. Then it will take years to demonstrate that you have elected non-morons. Then you need another election to illustrate it wasnt an anomaly.

Two more elections plus years on the back end

Kwame Brown probably showed up at the Capitol last week with a picture of his black on black Navigator in his wallet to show off to the congressman. "Hey, check out my other ride. It's fresh. Black on black. DVD. Couldnt get a stripper pole though. I don't use it though. It's too nice. It's at the district garage. They are bullet proofing it. I got a boat named Bulletproof. Wanna see a picture? Yeah it was like 70 grand. Trying to sell it though, but someone only wants to pay 30k. Can't sell it at a loss. Know what I mean? So I gotta use it. Just need gas prices to come back down or get another home equity loan"

B,
Think it's end of month.

Yawn. Is there anything more boring than a "DC Vote" troll by a (most likely suburban) anonymous commenter who doesn't understand the constitution.

C'mon folks, It's Monday; I'm trying to stay awake here as it is.

I think Fashion One should just embrace the graffitti. Its like free art. It can't possibly be uglier that what it looks like now

@Robby

80 years ago, a lot of "reasonable thinkers" said Jim Crow could never be defeated.

100 years ago, a lot of "reasonable thinkers" said women would never get the right to vote.

180 years ago, a lot of "reasonable thinkers" said slavery could never be defeated.

Anything is possible in this country with diligent organizing and a persuasive argument. Getting 600,000 American citizens the same rights as citizens in every state of the union is persuasive enough of an argument....a few decades of organizing can force Congress to admit the residential portion of DC as a state. Plenty of states consist of large tracts of federal land (Nevada comes to mind). It is possible and diligent organizing can get it done. That's how this country has always worked.

Welcome to America, pal.
