    The number of homeless people in Los Angeles is skyrocketing. In just one year, the figures revealed that the homeless population in the city grew 20% while the numbers for the wider Los Angeles County were even higher at 23%.

    As if looking at those numbers isn’t cringeworthy enough, The Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority reported Wednesday that 6,000 homeless young people were tallied across the county in January, a 61% increase over the 2016 total. Most of the young people are ages 18 to 24. All the youth shelters have waiting lists and affordable housing is tough to find, even with a rent voucher, according to Heidi Calmus of Covenant House California, an international youth homeless services agency with a branch in Hollywood. “The system is overwhelmed,” Calmus said Tuesday night as she and a colleague, Nick Semensky, delivered toiletry bags and sandwiches to young people living in the streets.

    After 8 years of the bi racial, Muslim loving, homosexual, community agitator, who promised Hope and Change, how could there be a Staggering Number Of Homeless In LA? I mean with all those Socialist programs that HE, enacted with a phone and a pen, you would think that he would of achieved the Utopian Socialist Paradise in the 1st two years, with Nanny Pelosi and Dirty Harry Reid in charge.. Why didn't they get it done? See picture below of Socialist Venezuela. Pictures are worth a thousand words.

    Again, just where in the hell is the coverage of a massive collapse of the oil rich socialist country called Venezuela? Citizens need to understand reality not fiction. In Toronto 30% of all children are living in poverty while there is massive expenditure on boondoggles and the Sunshine List of government (those making over $100k a year, has grown faster than the rate of Apples stock price).

    If Trump brings in some bulldogs to go after the media, this is one of the topics I repeat over and over again. The youth of today need to realize the dangers of socialism and stop living in the la la land that some try to sell them.

    The media must assume that this is a dog bites man story, which it is.

    "Homeless" is no longer a word. It was discriminatory and racist. Replace immediately with "shelter challenged".

    Brown's budget will correct this problem soon after it passes as everyone with half a brain leaves the state.
