How Should We Deal with the Homeless Problem?

Isn’t it sad that this question still needs to be asked?

After all of these years, and after throwing billions of dollars at the homeless, this problem only seems to be getting worse.

How can this be?

I keep thinking there must be a multitude of people smarter than me out there who are working on this problem…, but apparently not.

And, again, why is the current homeless situation acceptable somehow?

Well, it isn’t acceptable to me.

And it shouldn’t be acceptable for any of us in the United States of America.

For example, did you know that Seattle spends $100,000 “to help” each and every single homeless man, woman and child there!

It’s true.

$100,000 a person!!!

Seattle and its surrounding suburbs spend over ONE BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR addressing the homeless situation there!

OVER ONE BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR!!!

So what can be the problem you ask?

Well, the simple answer is that Seattle is considered by many to be one of the most liberal cities in the United States.

When democrats are running the show, it seems that NO AMOUNT OF MONEY IS EVER ENOUGH! Republicans are not blameless, however, either.

Let’s look at this more closely.

If you just gave a homeless family of four $100,000 each, or $400,000 (I was always good at math!) a year, they should be able to live very comfortably.

In fact, more comfortably than most people in this country!

So what is happening to all of that money between point A and point C?

Well, if point A represents all of taxpayer funding and donations, and Point C represents the homeless, point B represents government, stupidity, and corruption.    

The truth is the liberals/democrats don’t really want to solve the problem…, they want to retain their power and their bureaucracy, while punishing and blaming the people who pay for all of their foolishness.

That being said, I would like to offer my services and submit for your consideration, my proposal to deal with this homeless crisis.

If you are a government entity at the local, state, or federal level, you have my permission use and implement my plan without question. You can even claim my homeless strategy as your own…, I don’t care, as long as we begin to actually do something that is effective regarding all of the homeless people in our country.

Typically, many communities are spending an adequate amount of money to address their homeless problem…, they’re just not spending their money appropriately or wisely.

There are many different reason for being “homeless.”

First, we need to divide the homeless into areas of situation and areas of need.

Families are treated differently, and routed to a family specific center.  Families would have all of the same considerations that individuals do plus the additional considerations for any children, regarding family continuity, safety considerations and school requirements.

If we’re dealing with an individual, we need to determine what exactly their situation is and route them to an appropriate assistance center.

Each of the following determinations would have its own specific assistance center.

We start and the top of this list and work our way down.  A person may fit into multiple stops on this list before finally not being “homeless” anymore.

Our overall goal is to not have anyone living on the streets, and to make sure everyone is being properly assisted and treated for whatever may be ailing them.

The list below is a top-down process. Each homeless individual stops at whatever step they require until they are no longer homeless.  

Is this person a veteran? Then they are routed to a VA center or military base.   

Is the person physically ill? Then they are sent to hospital or clinic for treatment.

Is the person mentally ill? Then they are routed to an appropriate mental health facility.

Is the person addicted to drugs? Then they are routed to the appropriate drug rehabilitation facility.

Does the person have an alcohol addiction? Then they are routed to the appropriate alcohol rehabilitation facility.

Is this person disabled, receiving assistance, but needs shelter?

Does this person need shelter and help getting assistance?

Does this person need shelter and help getting employment?

Is this person a victim of circumstances not covered above?

Once the proper determination has been made, the individual would either receive the required medical treatment, be treated for their respective mental illness, treated for their addiction, and/or assisted with their administrative processes.

Our homeless population doesn’t need “band aid” or “feel good” solutions…, or free needles and crack pipes!

Our homeless need real solutions, and so do we.

Yeah, but how are we going to pay for all of this you might ask?

Well, besides using the money we are already spending, which isn’t really helping at all, we can start by using the $300 million we just sent to the Taliban. Then we could use the $1 billion dollars they’re talking about bribing Russia with to back off of The Ukraine. Then we can start redirecting more of the billions of dollars of foreign aid we send all around the world, while hundreds of thousands of our own people are sleeping on the street.

People don’t mind paying for things that make sense, are effective, and that are run honestly and efficiently.

If I ever come across a government program like this I’ll let you know.

In the meantime, please don’t hold your breath.

Please let me know what you think of my homeless strategy, and any possible ways it could be improved upon!

Really, Joe?! C’mon man!

Joe Biden calls his son Hunter ‘the smartest guy I know’ amid questions over business dealings at an online event hosted by Oprah Winfrey.

According to Adam Shaw of Fox News, “Democratic nominee Joe Biden on Wednesday described his son Hunter as ‘the smartest guy I know’ — amid growing questions about the former vice president’s alleged ties to his son’s business dealings.”

So, Hunter’s the smartest guy you know, Joe?

Really?

That would mean he’s smarter than your former boss, Barack Obama, then, wouldn’t it?  

That would mean he’s smarter than you’re your other treasonous friends like Eric Holder, James Comey, John Brennan, James Clapper, Rod Rosenstein, Andrew McCabe, Chuck Schumer, Adam Schiff, Jerold Nadler, Robert Mueller, as well as all of the “scientists” and “experts” you know.

On second thought, you’re probably right!

He just might be the smartest person you know!

You should have picked Hunter as your running mate, Joe!

So, what kind of track record does Hunter have that would lead you to this belief, Sleepy Joe?

Well, let’s take a look at some of Hunter’s distinguishing accomplishments.

Hunter Biden met and married Kathleen Buhle in 1993. The two divorced in 2017 after a 22-year marriage that produced three daughters. In divorce papers, Kathleen accused her ex [Hunter] of blowing family funds on drugs and prostitutes.

Nice.

The same year as the split — as was first reported by “Page Six,” Hunter began dating his widowed sister-in-law, Hallie Biden, who had lost her husband, Beau, to brain cancer in 2015.

It was the least that he could do.  

The two began dating while he was recovering from a crack binge, which he explained in a New Yorker interview last July took place while grieving his brother’s death.

Smart.

Hunter had been kicked out of his marital home with then-estranged wife Kathleen over his failure to stay sober, and began spending most nights at Hallie’s house “sharing their grief” over his brother Beau.

Brilliant.

After being made aware, the VP [Joe Biden] and second lady [Jill Biden] offered their blessing of the relationship in a statement.

Of course…, why wouldn’t they?

“We are all lucky that Hunter and Hallie found each other as they were putting their lives together again after such sadness. They have mine and Jill’s full and complete support and we are happy for them,” the two said at the time.

Such a loving family!

In late 2019, Hunter entered a court battle over unpaid child support for a baby he fathered with ex-stripper Lunden Alexis Roberts.

Roberts filed a suit against Hunter in November after he denied being the father of their child, born in August 2018, and subsequently declined to pay child support.

Deadbeat Dad’s are so “in” right now.

In January 2020, an Arkansas judge ruled that Biden was the “biological and legal father” of the baby, noting that a DNA test had showed “with near scientific certainty” that Hunter was the parent.

Well, Joe, we have to follow the science, right?  

The two reached an out-of-court settlement in which Biden agreed to retroactively pay child support going back to November 2018.

A nobler act has never been seen.

Hunter has since gotten remarried to a South African woman named Melissa Cohen, whom he wed just 10 days after meeting her.

So wise as well!

Hunter Biden has long suffered from drug problems, and it even ended his brief attempt at a military career in his 40s. He was discharged from the Navy Reserve in February 2014 after he tested positive for cocaine.

“It was the honor of my life to serve in the US Navy, and I deeply regret and am embarrassed that my actions led to my administrative discharge,” he said after news of his discharge broke.

I’m sure.

Hunter was arrested in 1988 for drug possession, something he admitted to in a 2006 disclosure form after being nominated to serve on the Amtrak Reform Board by President Bush.

In November 2019, “Page Six” exclusively reported that the former vice president’s son was suspected of smoking crack inside a Washington, DC, strip club where he dropped “thousands of dollars” during multiple visits.

So generous!

The incidents, which took place at Archibald’s Gentlemen’s Club late last year, represents the most recent alleged drug use by Hunter Biden, who has acknowledged six stints in rehab for alcoholism and addiction.

When at first you don’t succeed…

No, really though, we should give him credit for the effort.

Page Six has also spotted Hunter Biden on multiple occasions at Larry Flynt’s Hustler Club NYC in Hell’s Kitchen. He was seen on each occasion with a woman who was not a dancer at the club. The two spent thousands each night on pricey booze and were joined by several strippers.

Such a giving person.

At one point, a stripper was scrambling to buy a sex toy so others could use it on him.

No comment.

Hunter has also been accused of profiting off his father’s vice-presidential status by earning tens of thousands of dollars per month to sit on a board for Burisma, a corrupt Ukrainian energy company, in an industry in which he had no prior experience.

Sounds legit.

At the time, Joe Biden led the Obama administration’s Ukraine policy.

Huh.  What a coincidence!

Hunter’s role with Burisma raised red flags for some in the Obama administration’s State Department, which a recent Senate Homeland Security Committee report found were raised to Biden and those in his orbit.

Hunter’s action “raised red flags” with Hillary Clinton and Susan Rice over at the State Department?

Now that’s really saying something!   

The 87-page report published late last month noted that two American officials, George Kent, former acting deputy chief of mission at the US Embassy in Kiev, and senior State Department official Amos Hochstein, “raised concerns” to Biden’s staff and directly to Joe Biden.

“Despite the efforts of these individuals, their concerns appear to have fallen on deaf ears,” the report says.

Hmmm, that’s odd.

“Moreover, this investigation has illustrated the extent to which officials within the Obama administration ignored the glaring warning signs when the vice president’s son joined the board of a company owned by a corrupt Ukrainian oligarch.”

And the FBI has sat on Hunter’s infamous laptop for close to a year as well.

Well, after all of the money the Biden’s received from Russia and China, this Ukrainian deal was relatively peanuts.

Joe Biden has said of Hunter, “I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings,” including his reported $83,000 monthly pay on Burisma’s board.

That Senate report also found that in 2014, Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the richest woman in Russia and the widow of Yury Luzhkov, the former mayor of Moscow.

One can only imagine what Hunter did to earn $3.5 million from this woman!

Yeeesh!  

Both he and Hunter have denied any wrongdoing with respect to Ukraine, and spokespeople for Joe Biden’s campaign have repeatedly slammed the Senate probe as biased and political.

Deny, deny, deny.

Lie, lie, lie.

That’s the democrat way.  

So, I guess we should all tip out hats to Hunter Biden…, the smartest guy that Lyin’ Joe Biden knows!
