    Even after the Economy has kicked your ass down to the absolute bottom rung and you can go no further, the National Socialists in California still demand Permits from you!

    Illegal Aliens are rewarded while Americans need permits.

    This is why we "Need to Secede".

    The link wont open for me...is it possible the permits are a way of tracking how many homeless, who they are and where so that the city has documented actual population? And may prepare accordingly?

    How much is a permit?

    We're not talking about down and out businessmen with briefcases living in the streets, we're talking about the drug addicted and mentally insane. I think James Wickham has the right intentions, essentially to make Nevada City unattractive to homeless people, but it's not addressing the real problem. The homeless will just go somewhere else.

    The problem is that you can't put people in jail for being homeless. It's a conundrum that every city is trying to deal with and you can't solve it by arresting these people. On the other hand it might keep the ACLU busy for a while and that's a plus.

    It's actually a boon to the homeless when it's cold or raining. No permit? Go to jail!

    "Thanks!"

    Illegal aliens are deported, undocumented immigrants are innocent until proven guilty.

    The proposal is perfectly appropriate and comports with Constitutional case law – local jurisdictions are entitled to enact measures to ensure public safety and keep public areas such as parks open and accessible to all. There is no ‘right’ to sleep outside.

    And if this were a red state you'd support the permit policy 100 percent.

    No one is ‘jailed’ for lacking a permit, those without permits would likely be required to relocate to a shelter or other similar venue.
