Liberals wonít let us build camps in the desert to contain them. They insist on keeping them amongst the rest of us.

The only way to solve homelessness is to dump and contain drugged out zombies in a remote location. Since most donít have the backbone to admit this, we will never arrive at a solution that works. At this point the best we can do is wait for a new powerful drug to hit the streets with a high fatality rate.

i have been to California a handful of times and i freaking loved it! Especially SoCAL. I am smart enough to know the grass is always greener so i have no plans to eventually move there but i can certainly see the appeal!

Democrats rally for all of that. Well, California could be the test case.

All the Silicone Valley robber barons, starting with Mark Zuckerberg who's worth $75B, live there and could be taxed the way Democrats say they want to tax billionaires.

Nothing Trump administration could do about it.

But, California isn't solving its homeless population, it's getting worse. What gives?

(Sources: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/05/u...opulation.html)
No one is donating. I know that for a fact. I called up quite a few of the places that take donations to help out the homeless or the very low income, and they all told me the same story. Either no one is donating at all, or they are getting very little in the way of donations.

There's also the NIMBY crowd that doesn't want any new housing built up to house all of these people.

And there's the illegal problem. I don't understand how the left does not understand this. There's only so much in resources. There's only so many places to build. There's only so much land. As the requests soar, so do the costs.

And I also learned this some years back when my sister's husband was in the hospital, clinging to life...and she has MS so she is disabled and unable to work a traditional job - and I was looking up ways that might get some type of help while he was, at the time we thought, either going to die, or if he did make it, was looking at a very long time in recovery - in a nursing home.

When I asked how long she could have food stamps, thinking it was just a couple of years, I was told, "Oh no, we've had people on food stamps for over 20 years." WTH?

Prices are high on a lot of things because of taxes, they are high due to demand (rent), no one is donating anything, and we have way too many people in this state who should not be here, but this state, as well as some others, are allowing those illegals to stay in this country in their stupid sanctuary areas.

Gee - I wonder what could possibly happen when you combine all of those together.

The "muh 5th largest economy argument" doesn't stand when you have so many people living in tents, filth, and disease.

And then, of course, we need to bring back asylums. It is not "humane" to allow these people to wander the streets to fend for themselves. They need help. I understand it was Reagan who did this - and it's one of the DUMBEST things he ever did.

I lived in Florida for 6 years. It was never as bad as what I see in CA.

Yes, there are homeless people everywhere. I've moved around all over this country. I've seen homeless people everywhere, but to pretend that because you can see homeless people no matter where you live, therefore, it's not the fault of CA (or Seattle area) for the grotesque amounts of homeless you can find, is completely dishonest and/or naive.
