The opposite of NIMBY! I know it originated on the west coast - so far, it's not traveled our way.

I was going to have a smart a$$ response but then I saw the answer by Fred Griffin -- no way I'm going to compete let alone win.  Very funny, Fred!

Sadly, yes.  The state has been using it frequently to try to attack those of us who are anti-growth (or slow growth) fans.  Somehow they think this catchy slogan will encourage us to say "F*** it, put houses on all of our open spaces and destroy our city's natural beauty.  And while you're at it, put drug houses in our richest neighborhoods."

 

Next time someone out here tells me to become a YIMBY, I'll say "Yes, in my backyard is where I like to burry the bodies of people who piss me off.  Would you like to take a trip to my house?  I have a nice shovel ready..."
