in light of the contentious nature of the upcoming election, and some of the rhetoric indicating possible civil unrest, I have decided to close the community gates 24/7.
Cottages of Woodstock, Ga. HOA president Bill Stanley • Saying in an e-mail to residents that they would lock the gates to the community out of fear of civil unrest. The community is made up of people 55 and over. Beyond this current situation, some have previously suggested civil unrest if Obama is elected again. These people are on crack.

George Lucas Strikes Back of the Day: Star Wars creator George Lucas has been trying for years to convert a large parcel of land in Marin County, California into a 300,000 square foot movie studio, with amenities including a day care center, restaurants, a gym and a parking garage, only to be shot down by his wealthy neighbors.
Because the local homeowners’ association has refused to let Lucas move forward with the studio, he’s decided to put the land to good use by transforming it into low-income housing, simultaneously doing a good deed and trolling his fellow landowners.
“If everyone feels that housing is less impactful on the land, then we are hoping that people who need it the most will benefit,” Lucas snarked.
He’s even donating the various studies and surveys he paid for while working on the movie studio project, to help the new housing development get underway more quickly.

WHEN RICH PEOPLE FIGHT

In other words: George Lucas is willing to help the less fortunate by creating low-income housing … as long as it drives down the land values of everybody living around them.
