This Week's Game


Quick SET Housing


POLI the AI asks, "Where can we agree?" Quick Shelter, Employment, Transportation (SET) for Involuntary Homeless to get back into the mainstream would make zoning changes for transitional housing in, next to, or near industrial parks to make it easy to walk to work. It's estimated there are a 500K homeless people capable of holding down full-time (FT) work but logistics are too difficult. ONE PARROT rents it's a win-win-win-win for workers, employers, families, and communities with just two or three 72 room apartment buildings per county needed to rehouse all these folks but outdated zoning laws stand in the way. THE OTHER PARROT vents once zoning laws bend communities will become chaotic and no one may want to build that housing, anyway. First, CLICK ON A ROLE, then click on YES or NO if you think a majority of each role is for or against. Click the parrot's gear for a 1 min "how-to" on twitter.


Should zoning allow housing nearer employers?

Let’s get horizontal, Politics 4.0 makes strange bedfellows

Turn your phone and your perspective horizontally
Widen your views, literally and figuratively
Politics is a landscape not a self-portrait
You’ll need both your left and right thumbs
Widen your views — left and right
Let’s knock down some figurative silos
Let’s sit on the 50 yard line, not just one end zone
