And now taxpayers will have to pay the freight for what is essentially irresponsible behavior by individuals.


California Gov. Gavin Newsom proposes $12 billion to house state's homeless​

“As governor I actually want to get something done. I don’t want to talk about this for a decade," Newsom said.


What could possibly go wrong!

From what I've observed, the homeless fall into three groups:

1. Temporarily down on their luck people who do not have self-destructive habits and are not mentally ill (this is a small minority)

2. Substance abusers who would rather use whatever money they have to buy booze or drugs than to clean up their lives; quite a few of these are also criminals

3. Mentally Ill who are preyed upon by criminals

The third group should be put into institutions for their own safety and welfare. The first group can actually benefit from jobs programs and temporary housing - a helping hand to lift them up.

The second group is the largest and is not going to be helped with housing. They'll just shit on the carpets instead of the sidewalk. The only hope for some of them is forced intervention into a rehab and sobriety program. They need to be taught how to live starting with the very basics of personal hygiene. Most of them, however, are far too gone due to the permanent damage to their brains and bodies caused by extreme substance abuse. The most that can and should be done is to put them in some form of barracks like housing with supervision to keep them from assaulting, raping and killing each other - and to protect the public from the health and safety risks they cause.

What is your solution to the homeless problem?

Revisit our laws preventing the forced committing of people into mental institutions. In my experience with the homeless, they are all pretty much drug addicts, mentally ill, or both and most of them aren't interested in changing their situation. They choose to be homeless. The adage of the homeless being people just down on their luck is not the norm. We need to be able to commit the mentally ill to institutions and provide them with the treatment they need so they can function in society. We need to be able to take the drug addicts and force them into rehab. In both cases, we need the resources to continue following up on them for the long term to keep them from relapsing.

Good everyone deserve a place to live that they can afford...
Everyone should work for it.
Get right wingers to do it first in alleged, Right to Work States. There should be no homeless in alleged, Right to Work States.


I don't understand your point here. Are you suggesting the being forced to pay union dues- as required in compulsory unionist states- is the main cause of homelessness?

I disagree with forcing workers to pay tribute to the mob for their jobs- but I don't think that removing that requirement will be a panacea for all of our nation's ills.

I understand your point but don't consider it much of a problem to the sake of private profit.

The People of any Right to Work State should have a literal and legal, right to work instead of being homeless, in alleged Right to Work States.

Apparently you are dense. The Right to Work is only relevant in the case of a union contract and the right of THOSE employees to work, regardless of whether they pay union dues.

It has nothing to do with any kind of guaranteed employment.

In other words, the express meaning of words means nothing to right wingers?

Newsom and his democrat scum accomplices could stop attracting the homeless to California
with their hare brained policies that have the effect that hanging raw bacon on your front porch has on cats, dogs, raccoons, possums and other unwanted vermin seems to have.

That's the sort of imbecilic "thinking" that empties out the state's useful money making class while,
at the same time, replacing them with more illegals, more drug addicted and mentally ill losers which drag on the tax paying class and perpetually compounds California's problems.

But nah...couldn't do that! It just wouldn't be California without all the discarded hypodermic needles
and human feces scattered everywhere.

Maybe Newsom is counting on Joe Biden to score another big trillion dollar payday so he can
play Santa to all the blue state jerk off governors again. That's Joe's gift to fools like Newsom, Pitzker,
Cuomo, Brown, Lamont, Inslee and other slime, speaking of unwanted vermin.

Like all democrat scams it subsidizes the left with money from the right so dicks like Newsom can
continue to drive his state into the gutter.

Joe takes YOUR money and gives it to democrats. Politicized socialism.
