All done, of course, while also hypocritically claiming they're doing it to correct great societal wrongs. Despite all of the disingenuous guilt trips and hackneyed PC claptrap, Sierra Madre represents little more to these folks than a great opportunity to accumulate a lot of cash. Just as it is in so many other similar towns.
What really is at stake here is the right of residents of communities such as this to maintain places that are safe for families and their kids. People work very hard to achieve residency in places like Sierra Madre, and the possibility of having their life's work put in harm's way by stupid and at times corrupt big government policies is a lot for many to accept.
Some have begun to wonder what their rights are, or even if they have any left. Why it is that these people have been singled out? Haven't they always carefully followed the rules, and done all of the right things?

Or even, perhaps, your kid's schools.
And what if you have a problem with any of their social engineering? Then perhaps you are a hateful person who really doesn't deserve all of the nice things you have.
Trust me, they can be taken away.
