will be living in after judge orders city
to offer housing to ENTIRE 4,600-strong
vagrant population by fall

As Los Angeles is ordered to deal with the nearly 5,000 homeless people living on its 'Skid Row', around 100 will soon be given keys to a small part of the solution: a new studio apartment. The apartments are small—just 380 square feet—but they'll be a marked improvement from the tent encampments that have mushroomed near LA's downtown. A federal judge earlier this week ordered the city to finally to something to house the 4,600 people who are estimated to be living in the area without homes. The first 98 people to soon be formerly homeless are moving into the studio apartments with private kitchens


These will be trashed in no time, but what matters is that connected developers made money building the things, adding another millstone around the necks of overburdened taxpayers.

Clinton appointee, and it's not the first time he's done something like this -- he was the judge that made Orange County put homeless in motels. He admits he's making it all up: "The Court acknowledges that this conclusion advances equal protection jurisprudence...." And he admits it's not about homelessness, but about blacks and (you guessed it, racism): "Here, Black people, and Black women in particular, are dying at exponentially higher rates than their white counterparts, and these disparate death rates can be directly traced to a history of structural racism and discrimination....The Court also finds that current City and County policies compound and perpetuate structural racism..." The full opinion is at:

If the judge really wanted to help these people, he would place them in a facility for mental health. These people need professional help. The professional care they require would be long term and some will require mental care forever. What a horrible decision this clown made.

There's a very fine line between helping and enabling, but the 2 strategies can't be more different. Liberals don't understand this and they think that if they just pour more taxpayers' money into a problem and gin up the free giveaways they're doing the right thing. Wrong! They've removed any incentive for people to gain pride and dignity by learning to help themselves and be responsible for their actions. If Pubbies were smart, they'd be setting the agenda by comparing helping and enabling every chance they get. I realize that's a pipe dream, though. They seem to much prefer playing defense, instead.

They should put the overflow of homeless in the five star Hollywood hotels. What could go wrong with that? No doubt Biden will pay the bills involved for the indefinite sojourns in those Hotels. In addition the Hotel restaurants could be restructured to provide the homeless with culturally appropriate food with the Hollywood celebrities showing up as volunteers to help feed the residents. No doubt Harry and Meghan would show up for such photo ops.

Norman, Okla.–A woman says she didn’t know she had a felony charge for over two decades for not returning a VHS rental. Caron McBride says she found out she was charged with a felony when she changed her name on her driver’s license in Texas after getting married. “I about had a heart attack,” she said.

Why Wind and Solar Energy Are Doomed to Failure 38 replies

Wind and solar energy are both essentially obsolete technologies. There is a reason why only the very rich or the very adventurous sail across oceans: the wind is unreliable, and at best produces relatively little energy. Nevertheless, liberals have concocted fantasies whereby all of our electricity, or perhaps our entire economy, will be powered by those fickle sources. There are a number of reasons why this will never happen, but a paper published last week by Center of the American Experiment argues that land use constraints are the most basic reason why wind and solar are inexorably destined to fail.

n the debate over whether one should or should not get the COVID vaccination, much has been said about the “science.” However, I’m not sure any encyclopedic knowledge of “science” is required to make this health decision. Simple statistical analysis should suffice to inform one’s ultimate decision. Statistics is primarily a study of probabilities. Fortunately, as regards COVID mortality rates, these probabilities are now known. That is, COVID mortality statistics broken down by age cohorts are now “known knowables.” For example, through statistics as of April 7, the odds an American under the age of 25 would die from COVID were 1-in-106,217.
