From the article:

The city has set aside $235,000 from property taxes and its housing fund...
I'd mind if I was a Laguna property tax payer. That's redistribution of wealth, pure and simple, and I worked hard for what I acquired.

Simple solution: Send them all to Sacramento which built a downtown pedestrian mall a block from the Capitol just for the homeless!

Yes but Laguna Beach is liberal. They will be happy to share what they have earned withthe homeless. In fact, you can camp out on their lawns and be welcomed in the morning.

I am wondering if it is nice out does this mean that we can just take a sleeping bag and camp out on the beach? That would be a neat weekend vacation. I just need to find a shower. I will ask other homeless people on the beach, maybe they know where to take a shower.

There are showers right on main beach, right by the playground.

Does that include serving them hot coffee and sweet rolls when they wake up? If not, why not?

Unless you have a week's growth and smell bad you're likely to be arrested! Forget the shower!

Well, then, all the comforts of home. Perhaps Sacramento should bus its considerable homeless population to Laguna Beach. The weather's nicer and maybe Sacramento's Loaves and Fishes would relocate as well. If not see above regarding breakfast in sleeping bag on lawn.

Laguna Beach is the most liberal city in Orange County. People have spent millions on their homes, then the ACLU comes along and trashes the place,
by bussing in bums. What's happened there is horrible. Homeless and illegal aliens are defecating on the beach and in parks, they're aggressively pan-handling and causing nothing but trouble. That's why I live in LAGUNA NIGUEL -- our city council voted LN a "Rule of Law" city (like Arizona).

"Homeless" - what a misleading term. Supposedly all that makes them different from a productive person is that they don't have a house. Not true. Give them a house and they would still be a bum. They wouldn't take care of it or change their freeloading lifestyle. Yes, there are exceptions, but this is the rule. They want to live a lazy life with no responsibility. And why not? Our culture (look to the libs) has removed the stigma from being a lazy bum. There is no more shame associated with it.

If the bleeding hearts want to save the homeless let them start a charity with their own money. Never will happen. Libs talk a good story, but are tight wads when it comes to giving their own money to charity (compared to conservatives). But they are happy to steal your money and give it to the "homeless".
