LOS ANGELES – A California crowdfunding effort is hoping to solve the U.S. homeless crisis by building a 300-acre city open exclusively to those without a home. Daune Nason, founder of the Folsom-based Citizens Again, released details Thursday of his plans for an estimated $3 billion private city equipped with amenities and services for a 150,000 “high-needs” population. California’s homeless population in 2018 was almost 130,000, nearly a quarter of the national total, according to the most recent federal data.

What an ignorant fool. Not only will drugs get worse but they will be pooping on the floors indoors. Who is cleaning all this? Then the illegals will demand to take over. Last paragraph is always the important one.

Another socialist utopian plan.... I'm positive it'll work well for about 3 minutes; until the fight breaks out over who controls the communal TV remote. Think they'll ban drugs and alcohol? or provide them? Gotta keep the population under control somehow.

How many ghettos do liberals have to build before they admit the concept doesn't work. A city of largely dysfunctional and unstable people. What could go wrong? Most of these people are homeless for a reason that is not easily fixable. This almost sounds like the "mental institutions" we abandoned years ago. They cost a fortune and were largely warehouses for seriously dysfunctional people.

Back in the olden days, Fort Worth had a "skid row" with bars and hot-sheet hotels, but there was also a group of "missions", Baptist, Salvation Army and a city-operated one, each offering clean beds, hot food and perhaps a Bible verse or two. Vagrancy was a misdemeanor and those who loitered were hauled down to the pokey for a night. It worked.

Now what do you get for $3 Billion (or more) if you put all the mentally disturbed and drug addicted in this facility with no treatment of their problems and no supervision? In 6 months, a facility knee deep in trash, drug needles. and human waste and the diseases that go with it unfit for human habitation. A monument to mindlessly throwing money at a problem while doing nothing to solve the problem.

Looks like they only got $60 so far. Not likely to happen. Even in the military, where almost everyone is sane and almost nobody an addict, the barracks gets messed up. Inspections are frequent and still you get occasional slobs. What will happen when most of the people are mentally ill and/or drug addicts or alcoholics with no self control? I bet they cant keep employees very long.

Isn't this simply a souped-up version of what they already have on the streets of San Fran? It also appears to be a test of the Marxist one world government, where people will be monitored, given accounts that are added to and subtracted from for services. This Marxist move seems to be happening everywhere, not just in Washington. obama's job was to strip America down, and hillary was supposed to finish US off. PDT wrecked their plan by WINNING! I believe President Donald Trump is a threat to something bigger than the DC swamp.

We have always had bums, lunatics, drunks and drug addicts. We just haven't catered to them before, we have run the bums off, put the lunatics in asylums, and kept the drunks and drug addicts from causing trouble by jailing and other legal methods to make them uncomfortable, and not bother normal folks. The problem is catering to and subsidizing these problematic folks. Move them out, and don't make it pleasant for them.

Dorm housing? No. Its a refugee camp for the homeless. Will the homeless be forced to move there? This sounds like housing for illegal immigrants as well. "amenities and services for a 150,000 “high-needs” population."? As in from each according to their abilities to each according to their 'needs'? This has been tried before on a lesser scale. They were called 'The Projects', and were torn down inside of 20 years because the people living there destroyed them. Imagine the crime. Imagine the filth. Only on a larger scale. Someday, can see the feds taking over California because the state government has wrecked everything.

Sure sounds like a proposed socialist utopia where all the “residents” without residences will be registered Leftist or liberal Democrat socialist voters. The perpetrators of this new private city are going to need a lot of luck getting President Trump to pay for the proposed infrastructure and the elite workers who will come into the city through tunnels to keep the place above board.

This "solution" has already been tried and found not to work.

The brutal murder of Tessa Majors, an 18-year-old college student, attacked as she walked through Morningside Park in Manhattan, has chilled New Yorkers. According to news accounts, Majors was robbed and stabbed by three youths who accosted her, put her in a headlock, and emptied her pockets, then slashed her repeatedly with a four-inch knife blade. Found by police, she was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where she died. The prime suspects are three teenage boys, ages 13 and 14—the third hasn’t yet been apprehended—who confessed to seeking robbery victims in the park. This horrible incident touches two raw nerves: one dealing with criminal responsibility and punishment for adolescents,

Christianity Today exposed the reality of Evangelical division,” reads the headline to David French’s column today for The Dispatch. He notes “the malleability of the definition” of “Evangelical”: Not all self-described “Evangelicals” share the same beliefs or the same faith habits. Exit poll questions about religious identity are far too imprecise to provide true insight into a complex community. Many people . . . describe themselves as “Evangelical” simply because it’s the best option in a limited exit-poll menu. When they hear “Evangelical” they often interpret it as “politically conservative Christian.” Thirty-five percent of Americans identify as Evangelical,

President Trump ends 2019 in a better position than when he started. The year began with the swearing in of Nancy Pelosi as speaker of the House. The Mueller probe dragged on. The legislative agenda of Trump's first two years in office had petered out. The Democratic frontrunner, Joe Biden, was beating him by double digits in the polls. A little more than halfway through the year, bond prices signaled recession. Look where things stand now. Pelosi's decision to impeach Trump already has cost her a seat and stands zero chance of resulting in a Senate conviction. Not only has Mueller shuffled off the stage, but Michael Horowitz's report

PARIS — Notre Dame kept Christmas going even during two world wars — a beacon of hope amid the bloodshed. Yet an accidental fire in peacetime finally stopped the Paris cathedral from celebrating Midnight Mass this year, for the first time in over two centuries. As the lights stay dim in the once-invincible 855-year-old landmark, officials are trying hard to focus on the immediate task of keeping burned out Notre Dame ’s spirit alive in exile through service, song and prayer. It has decamped its rector, famed statue, liturgy and Christmas celebrations to a new temporary home pending the restoration works, just under a mile away, at another Gothic church in Paris

This week’s impeachment of President Trump came and went like a sun shower on a warm spring day. It was a slight annoyance, but once it passed, the country got back to its picnic of jobs, record stock-market highs and consumer confidence. For all of the Democrats’ pantomiming about the gravity of the moment, their party line vote had all the impact of a beanbag. So now, the articles of impeachment will move to the Senate for a trial. Or will they? The latest twist in this reality show is that Speaker Nancy Pelosi is now not sure when or if she will send them to the Senate.

But it turned out the person responsible was an American, the wife of an intelligence officer working at an RAF military base. Three weeks after Dunn’s death, Ann Sacoolas returned to the United States claiming diplomatic immunity. Dunn’s parents have since been to the US to call for her return and even met with President Trump. Despite the fact that case is unlikely to be resolved, the Crown Prosecution Service has charged Sacoolas and started extradition proceedings:

"Ingraham Angle" host Laura Ingraham told Reed he was making his publication "irrelevant," adding that the magazine has been gradually taking on a leftward bent since it was founded by the late evangelist Billy Graham in the 1950s.

Francis called for Vatican bureaucrats to instead embrace change during his annual Christmas greetings to the cardinals, bishops and priests who work in the Holy See.
