help isn’t on the way

The Trump administration fired a top homelessness official last week, the latest in a series of supposed omens that the president plans to do more on the issue. While the prospect of more federal assistance would be welcome in California, home to a quarter of the nation’s homeless and nearly half those without shelter, President Trump’s record does not suggest that help is on the way. Matthew Doherty, an Obama administration holdover who was executive director of the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness, wrote on Twitter Friday that he was leaving “at the administration’s request.” No further announcement followed, but an unnamed administration official told the Washington Post

Comments:

I wonder who was the designated goat prior to 2016? Somehow I doubt fingers were pointed at Barack Obama. This Texas taxpayer has no interest in bailing California out.

This Idaho taxpayer has no interest in bailing out Kalifornia either. Plus not real thrilled with all the transplants coming to our wonderful state with all their liberal baggage and unbelievable bad manners.

California invites unproductive people and illegal aliens to come one, come all and then wonders why resources are stretched so thinly. The taxpayers and business owners are fleeing but the state government just can't figure out why.

I'm with StormCnter, I don't want a penny of my money used to help California's self-made problem. If California was trying to help out the homeless Americans, they would throw out the invaders coming across the border. That would leave plenty of places for American citizens to get off the street.

So he fired someone worthless Obama person who has done nothing? How is that a omen of Trump not doing anything? Sounds to me like Trump is addressing the issue.

As a California resident, I have to say I agree with the above posters. DON'T send more money for the "homeless" in California - the state actively tries to draw homeless (and illegals) here. "Homeless" in California means "no street address" - thus people living in trailer homes and couch-surfers (people staying with a friend a few days, then staying with another friend, etc.) are counted as "homeless" for goodie-distribution purposes. Being "homeless" pays pretty well. For example, if you are one "homeless" person in San Francisco, you get $37K/year in cash. This sounds pretty minimal for California, but you have to realize that you also get free shelter, free food, and free medical care. Many won't take the free shelter because they aren't allowed to drink, use drugs, or rape people whenever they want. $37K will buy a lot of drugs, which is guaranteed to not lift anyone out of homelessness. Guarantees a large and growing number of homeless to feed the California Homeless Industrial Complex (h/t Dr. Savage). Don't send more money to California - it will just wreck more lives.

I don't see this as the government's problem (either CAs or US) to clean up. I see this as the churches' problem, but the problem for churches is that people have to WANT help before they will accept help. Otherwise, yeah, we're just funding a runaway, insanely liberal government that thinks that more (of my) money will do the trick!

Like most Americans, I don't live in California. So why is California homelessness our problem? Why is it America's problem? Stop encouraging and tolerating antisocial behavior. Arrest people for defecating on the sidewalk. Clear their tents and hose down the streets. Arrest people for sleeping in the gutter. If you arrest them, at lest they will get 3 meals and a roof. Then you can put them into some assistance programs that Californians fund. I'll help you with your bums when you start paying for our snow plows.

California should look at what Texas is doing in Austin. Clean up of the homeless problem is a self-help project. California created and enabled their problem, so it can fix it with their own money.

It is largely a drug abuse and mental health problem. Those compassionate Seattle folks have been shipping their homeless to the south. Lately those compassionate New Yorkers have been putting their homeless on a bus and shipping them to us in Baton Rouge. Austin is a mess, but nearby Georgetown is smart enough not to allow panhandlers.

With regards to the question posed by #1, I can speak firsthand that in many cases the families are out there. They are brokenhearted. They are worn out. They are blamed and made to feel guilty over behavior they can't control. They are not allowed to know what therapists discuss. They have check ledgers reflecting huge sums thrown at useless therapists. They have done countless interventions and supported many promises made, and always broken. They love deeply and ache to save their family member. They have arguments with family and never solve a thing. And this goes on for decafes, with no change. That's where we are.

K 14, but "nearby Georgetown is about 90% Dell Webb where you can't plant a tree in your back yard without approval. You can't have a table saw in your garage under any circumstances. If you want to cut wood go to the communal wood shop. If you want to go swimming go to the community swimming hole. You can't build one at "your" house. Getting my drift ? And these 3 bedroom houses are selling for 350K. Most of the owners are clogging the interstates with gigantic motorhomes (telling themselves they are camping). Austin's a mess but Georgetown's a prison.

Why should the rest of the country bail Kalifornia out of the mess that they made all by themselves? PDT should tell them to raise their state taxes on demonrats to pay for the homeless fiasco. Start with Hollywierd.

I don't know what the answer is. The PTB let the problem get too big before they cast any light onto it. One must realize that the homeless are runaways, drug addicts, prostitutes, criminals, mentally ill and gang members. They aren't all native Californians. They are the slime and filth of the human species who somehow make it from colder weather to the warmer climate of California which explains to me the larger delegation of undesirables in The Golden State. What to do about them? God only knows.

I read a summary of a study several years ago that stated that approximately 1/3 of the homeless were mentally ill, 1/3 societal dropouts and 1/3 were folks who live on the economic edge. many (most?) self-medicate. The last third, however are reachable. They are generally transients through homelessness. They can successfully be assisted. They need to be taught how to make good economic decisions and good personal values./habits.

If there’s one Republican on the House Intelligence Committee who Democrats could reasonably hope would vote to impeach President Donald Trump, it’s Representative Will Hurd of Texas. But even he isn’t sold yet. Hurd, a moderate former CIA analyst who announced this summer that he would not seek reelection next year, joined every other House Republican in voting against a package of rules for the impeachment inquiry last month. But he had been more open-minded than most of his colleagues and gave little indication of his leanings during the committee’s hearings over the past two weeks. His questions of witnesses were serious and not overtly partisan, neither adopting the dismissive tone

I started wearing boots consistently when I went to college. You get to A&M and see guys that have a certain, very consistent look. For me, it was one less fashion variable to have to think about. But there have always been a few general rules when it comes to boots. First, wear your pants long enough. Real cowboys have a stacked effect with their jeans. When they rest on the foot of the boot, they kind of wrinkle up. That way, if you’re in the saddle, they’re still long enough. If you see somebody whose pants aren’t long enough, it might be a tell

‘The strong do what they can. The weak suffer what they must.’ Thucydides’ principle expresses an uncomfortable truth. The eight-day meeting between Stalin, Roosevelt and Churchill at Yalta in the Crimea in February 1945 settled the fate of Eastern Europe and beyond. Its effects are still with us. President George W. Bush compared it with the way Britain, France and the Soviet Union sold out to Hitler before the war began: he called it ‘one of the greatest wrongs of history’. ‘Yalta’, like ‘Munich’, has become a synonym for the cynical betrayal of the weak by the strong. It is an oft-told, well-documented and controversial story.
