“Tell ‘em what they’ve won Johnny!”

“All of the homeless people in Oakland, California have won an all-expenses paid cruise ship adventure, Pat!”

Well…, not exactly all of the homeless population of Oakland.

According to Travis Fedschun of Fox News, “The City of Oakland considers obtaining a cruise ship to house the homeless!”

“This is not exactly ‘The Love Boat,’ but it could help make a dent in one California city’s homeless crisis.”

acruise 1

Unless you’re over 40 years old, you may not get the reference to “The Love Boat.”

For those of you who aren’t familiar with “The Love Boat,” “The Love Boat” was a TV series set on a luxury passenger cruise ship called the Pacific Princess.  The show aired on ABC from 1977 to 1987.  The series revolved around the ship’s captain, Captain Stubing (played by Gavin MacLeod), and a handful of its crew: Julie, Doc, Gopher and Isaac, along with several passengers, played by various guest star actors each episode, having romantic and humorous adventures.

The Love Boat - 1977-1986

Anyway…

“During a city council meeting on Tuesday, Oakland City Council President Rebecca Kaplan broached the idea of using a cruise ship to house up to 1,000 homeless people, suggesting a ship be brought to the Port of Oakland as the region deals with skyrocketing costs of living and a shortage of affordable housing.”

acruise 2

Have these liberals in California all lost their minds?

Seriously…, I’m seriously asking.

Their “solutions” just seem to be getting dumber and dumber.

acruise 15

I’ve heard they have excellent buffets on cruise ships, but our drug addicted friends may find it hard to find a fix if they’re confined to the ship.

And there would be a lot for them to do on the ship, but it seems all these homeless people do is lay around and sleep all day.

acruise 16

I don’t think we’d see a lot of them in the pool or on the water slide, but I could be wrong.

‘“It could be a great way to house a lot of people quickly,’ Kaplan told the San Francisco Chronicle. ‘Cruise ships have been used for emergency housing after natural disasters and for extra housing for things like Olympics.’”

“Homelessness has spiked in Oakland, with a 47 percent jump in two years — one of the largest surges of any California city, according to a one-night street count released in July.”

acruise 6

“The count, which used federal guidelines, showed Oakland had 4,017 homeless people, up from 2,761 in 2017. The increase has put the city’s per capita homeless rate higher than neighboring San Francisco and Berkeley.”

acruise 9

“Kaplan told the Chronicle she plans to present a proposal to the council in January that will be at “no or low” cost to the city, because residents of the cruise ship would pay for rooms based on their income. The city would not buy the cruise ship.”

I would like to go on record with my prediction that if this idea does come to fruition, it will NOT be at little or no cost to the city.

“The council president added that she has been contacted by cruise ship companies about providing a ship for emergency housing and that the companies – which were not named – were reaching out to the Port of Oakland about mooring options at the port.”

“The idea for a cruise ship in Oakland would be similar to the Queen Mary in Long Beach in Southern California.”

“The 1936 ocean liner is now a floating hotel with 347 rooms, where a room with two twin beds goes for $141 a night and $146 a night for a full-size bed.”

‘“It could be like that,’ Kaplan told the paper. ‘But as affordable housing instead of hotel.’”

Ha!

Something just doesn’t seem right here.

Why in the world would cruise ship companies be contacting the Oakland City Council, offering to let the city use their ships for housing homeless people?

Would anyone like to take a guess as to how long it would be before the ship was completely trashed and deemed worthless?

One month?

Two months?

Three months?

I’m sure these cruise ship companies have an interest in doing something along the lines of the Queen Mary in Long Beach, with a hotel type of situation; not as some sort of floating homeless repository!

There are also many port related issues and regulatory issues standing in the way of this happening as well.

It’s obvious that the liberal politicians are confused and haven’t done their homework…, like usual, regarding this brilliant idea.

“Cruise ships have been used as emergency housing before. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the Federal Emergency Management Agency chartered three luxury cruise liners to provide housing for up to 8,000 people that were left homeless after the storm. That $236 million contract was later scrutinized in a study released in 2006 by House Democrats, which said it proved ‘wasteful for the federal taxpayer’ because it ended up costing $50,000 to house a single person for six months, more than $300 per person for each night’s lodging.”

Remember the words, “at no or low cost to the city?”

The logical progression of this line of thinking would be to eventually buy an island and dump the homeless people off there for a permanent vacation!

Out of sight out of mind!

These liberals are really something, aren’t they?

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

Typically, 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.

acruise 12

acruise 11

If we’re dealing with an individual, we need to determine what exactly their situation is and route them at 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 treated for whatever may be ailing them.

Is the person physically ill?

Is the person mentally ill?

Is the person addicted to drugs?

Does the person have an alcohol addiction?

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

Does this person need shelter and help getting assistance?

acruise 10

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.

acruise 13

Our homeless population doesn’t need “band aid” or “feel good” solutions.

Our homeless need real solutions, and so do we.

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

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

Until then, we can always hope.

California sounds like a nice place to visit, but I wouldn’t want to live there.

On second thought, it doesn’t really sound like a place I’d care to visit anymore either!

Don’t get me wrong, I lived in northern California for close to a year, and I loved it…, but that was over 40 years ago.

Things there sure appear to have changed.

Besides the earthquakes, forest fires, oppressive taxes, expensive gas, poop and homeless people laying around everywhere, an out of control drug problem, and over 5 million undocumented immigrants, we now see a steep rise in shoplifting, thefts, and criminal activity across state.

Just to put some of this into perspective, there are 26 states with smaller populations than California’s illegal immigrant population!

And California is nicknamed “the golden state?”

It sounds more like a living hell to me now…, unless you’re an illegal immigrant, a welfare warrior, a drug addict, a criminal, or an elite liberal who can afford to insulate themselves from the mess they’ve helped to create.

Barnini Chakraborty of Fox News reports that, “In 2014, Prop[osition] 47 was passed to reduce certain non-violent felonies to misdemeanors in order to free up resources for cops and prosecutors to go after serious, violent offenders. Data shows that after Prop 47 passed, shoplifting and thefts increased.”

Gee…, who could have predicted that?  Apparently not any of the democrats out there in California.

aca 11

“Fox News spoke with San Francisco and Oakland shop owners about the recent rise in crime.”

“In a lighted garage on one of San Francisco’s busiest streets, a young man in baggy trousers and messy brown hair pulled down his pants. He had been hiding two pairs of stolen jeans with the tags still on them. He handed them to another man waiting nearby, took some money, pulled up his pants and headed back into another store on Market Street — home to the city’s high-end designers and big-chain retail shops.”

“These brazen acts of petty theft and shoplifting are a dangerous and all-too-common consequence of Proposition 47, a referendum passed five years ago that critics say effectively gives shoplifters and addicts the green light to commit crimes as long as the merchandise they steal or the drugs they take are less than $950 in value. The decision to downgrade theft of property valued below the arbitrary figure from felony to misdemeanor, together with selective enforcement that focuses on more ‘serious’ crimes, has resulted in thieves knowing they can brazenly shoplift and merchants knowing the police will not respond to their complaints, say critics.”

“Over in the City by the Bay’s famous Tenderloin district, Cassie, a 21-year-old mother of two and a former heroin junkie, told Fox News that when times were tough, she too has stolen from stores.”

‘“If my babies need diapers or formula, who is going to get that for me? No one. I have to do it,’ she said. ‘They ain’t out here arresting people for (shoplifting) and everyone knows it.’”

“Proposition 47 is seen by critics as one of California’s biggest blunders. Supported by the state Democratic Party and championed by the American Civil Liberties Union, the referendum was passed by a wide margin in 2014. The idea behind it was to reduce certain non-violent felonies to misdemeanors in order to free up resources for cops and prosecutors to focus on violent offenders.”

“Since Proposition 47 was passed, there has been an increase in theft across the state. Cities like San Francisco have seen organized crime rings turn shoplifting into a well-organized racket involving desperate thieves and unscrupulous black-market re-sellers.”

“Among the nation’s 20 largest cities, San Francisco now has the highest rate of property crime, which includes theft, shoplifting and vandalism.”

Wow!  You would have to say that San Francisco is a liberal policy over-achiever!

You should be in line to win some kind of award from your fearless leader, and representative, Nancy Pelosi.

“Del Seymour, founder of the non-profit Code Tenderloin, told Fox News that fencers – often from Mexico and Guatemala – set up shop in the middle of the day and night around the city’s United Nations Plaza area. He said he’s also noticed that the stealers and dealers have gotten bolder by the day. The retail heists taking place, he said, aren’t some small-time operation but instead a sophisticated network of international dealers who cross the border to buy stolen goods.”

“Seymour believes San Francisco is stuck in a cycle and, until it’s able to pull itself out, the problem will continue. Drug addicts, who are often homeless, need money for a fix so they walk into a store, steal merchandise, sell it for half the value and use the money they made to buy more drugs. Seymour added that the mayor and elected city officials have been spending too much time and money trying to coddle addicts and have done nothing to eliminate San Francisco’s drug problem.”

“The problem isn’t just San Francisco-based. Across the state, retailers say they have been hit hard by shoplifters since Prop 47 went into effect.”

“In San Diego County, 7-Eleven franchise owner Jassi Dhillon told NBC 7 that he has to deal with shoplifters at all six of his store locations.

‘“It’s happening every day, hour by hour,’ he said.”

“Dhillon said shoplifting isn’t a priority to law enforcement and said when cops do show up, the shoplifter has left the store or isn’t concerned about the citation they are issued.”

‘“It’s becoming a lifestyle for us now because we can’t do anything much except take the loss,’ he said.”

“Rachel Michelin, president of the California Retailers Association, said shoplifting is not only hurting retailers but is also ‘becoming a public safety issue for consumers.’”

“She said black-market dealers frequently cross state lines because they know California will go easy on them if caught.”

‘“They know what they’re doing. They will bring in calculators and get all the way up to the $950 limit,’ Michelin told Fox News, adding that ‘one person will go into a store, fill up their backpack, come out, dump it out and go right back in and do it all over again.’”

“Michelin said she’s seen footage from member retailers that she described as ‘completely insane.’”

‘“They will go into a grocery store, steal alcohol and walk out the front door with it. They know no one is going to prosecute them.’ — Rachel Michelin, president of California Retailers Association.”

‘“They will go into a grocery store, steal alcohol and walk out the front door with it,’ she said. ‘They know no one is going to prosecute them. The district attorneys aren’t.’”

“She added that there are even more sinister acts afoot. Many out-of-state crime rings use children to do their dirty work because they know they’re low on the totem pole of prosecutions.”

‘“There are folks that are using and exploiting children,’ she said. ‘But I also think that teenagers know that there are no consequences anymore. It’s part of a game. If you get caught, all you have to do is get out of the store.’”

‘“Law enforcement [officials] are trying to protect the streets and then they might do a sting and arrest a bunch of people but then the district attorney will drop it or downgrade the charges,’ she said.”

“It’s a frustrating dynamic for sure, but until the state finds a fix, retailers have been reaching into their own pockets to hire private security guards but even then there are no guarantees that the stealing will stop. In fact, all that private guards can do is observe and report thefts.”

“Frustrated business owners say they feel their needs are being ignored by elected officials.”

“Fox News asked Democratic Mayor London Breed’s office six separate times for an interview or to comment on this story. Her office did not respond to a single request about the growing crisis. Fox News also reached out to the district attorney’s office multiple times but did not get a response.”

Ha!  No kidding!

How dare anyone try and hold these democrats accountable for their actions?!

They don’t feel obligated to explain themselves to me, you, or anyone else.

We are all below their level of social understanding and “enlightedness.”

‘“Big and small businesses are hit hard financially by these thefts, which often endanger employees and discourage law-abiding customers. SFPD is collaborating closely with local businesses and our partner agencies to deter and investigate these crimes to make our city even safer and enable businesses to prosper,’ San Francisco Police Chief William Scott said in the press release forwarded to Fox News.”

Okay, Chief.  You just keep on collaborating there while you keep on kissing the backsides of all of the “all talk and no do (at least no doing of anything positive or effective) politicians there.

As with most liberal policies, law abiding, productive citizens, receive little or no consideration.

They are just left to pay the bills and contend with the fallout of all of these great liberal ideas!

Who knew New York City was such a generous and sharing place…, as they secretly export their homeless to Hawaii and many other states?!

Wait…, what?

anyc 9

What?

I thought New York City was a “sanctuary city…,” a “caring” city?

I guess New York City is only a “sanctuary city” for people who are in the country illegally…, not for your old run of the mill, actual American citizen.

anyc 1

Only democrats could come up with this lame kind of plan…, and then expect to keep it secret somehow.

anyc 10

In case you didn’t notice, the word “secret” is starting to become synonymous with the democrats.

They’ve got this “secret” plan…, and they’re conducting these “secret” hearings…, and they have “secret” answers to “secret” questions about these “secret’ individuals.

“Secret” “impeachment hearings and interviews with “secret” questions and “secret” answers (unless they are potentially damaging to President Trump, in which case they are leaked to the “liberal propaganda media”), and “secret” accusers and whistleblowers.

And, of course, the democrats are assisted with this “propaganda by omission” by their friends the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media,” who look the other away regarding their fascist behavior.

Thankfully, not all news media is created in the image of The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS or NBC.

Sara Dorn of The New York Post reports that, “NYC homeless initiative sends people across the US — without telling receiving cities.  Families who once lived in NYC shelters were sent to 32 states and Puerto Rico.  New York City [is] generously sharing its homeless crisis with every corner of America.”

“From the tropical shores of Honolulu and Puerto Rico, to the badlands of Utah and backwaters of Louisiana, the Big Apple has sent local homeless families to 373 cities across the country with a full year of rent in their pockets as part of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s ‘Special One-Time Assistance Program [SOTA].’ Usually, the receiving city knows nothing about it.”

“The Big Apple has sent local homeless families to 373 cities across the country!”

“373 cities!”

Well, isn’t that special?!

That’s a lot of nerve, NYC…, secretly shipping your “problems” out of town to other unsuspecting cities.

anyc 3

Mayor Bill de Bozio and the rest of the “holier than thou” New York liberals have apparently felt the need to “punt” their problems to other states they consider “low rent…,” and then de Bozio has the nerve to complain about illegal immigrants, who he supposedly supports, being shipped to NYC from our southern border.

I guess he supports the concept…, as long as the illegals go to someone else’s city.

anyc 8

“[New York] City taxpayers have spent $89 million on rent alone since the program’s August 2017 inception to export 5,074 homeless families — 12,482 individuals — to places as close as Newark and as far as the South Pacific, according to Department of Homeless Services (DHS…, not to be confused with The Department of Homeland Security) data obtained by The Post.  Families who once lived in city shelters decamped [departed suddenly or secretly] to 32 states and Puerto Rico.”

Ha!  What liberal genius took the time to come up with the word “decamped?”

These people are just soooo deceiving and soooo disingenuous.

anyc 6

This has been going on for over two years, and it’s just coming out now.

Like I said before, “propaganda by omission.”  “If we don’t report about it, it isn’t happening.”

“The city also paid travel expenses, through a separate taxpayer-funded program called Project Reconnect, but would not divulge how much it spent.”

If it’s taxpayer funded isn’t it a public record?  Secret, secret, secret.

Just sayin’.

“DHS defends the stratospheric costs, saying it actually saves the city on shelter funding — which amounts to about $41,000 annually per family, as compared to the average yearly rent of $17,563 to house families elsewhere.”

anyc 2

“But critics say the ‘stop-gap solution’ has been fraught with problems, and ultimately has failed to help curb the city’s homelessness.”

You don’t say?!

You mean to say we have a democrat program here that doesn’t work?

Join the list of sad democrat programs that don’t work, and that haven’t worked, SOTA!

anyc 7

“Not only are officials in towns where the city’s homeless land up in arms, but hundreds of the homeless families are returning to the five boroughs — and some are even suing NYC over being abandoned in barely livable conditions. Multiple outside agencies and organizations have opened investigations into SOTA.”

“Homeless individuals and families are eligible for SOTA if they can prove they have been in a New York City shelter for at least 90 days and that their household income is no more than twice what it owes in rent. DHS would not expand on eligibility rules.”

Wait.

So let me get this straight.

You can qualify for this program if your “household income is no more than twice what it owes in rent?”

Wouldn’t that be like many people and many families across America?

I mean, most people are not rich or anywhere close to it.

Maybe New York is doing these people a favor by shipping them out of la la land and out into the real world?

But that’s beside the point.

“Some pols [politicians] in towns taking in NYC refugees were shocked by the news.”

‘“So in other words, if someone is in a shelter, y’all will give them money to go somewhere else if they have been there for 90 days? And some of those people have been sent to Metairie [part of the New Orleans metropolitan area]?’ said Michael Yenni, president of Jefferson Parish, Louisiana, when The Post told him the community is among the SOTA destinations.”

‘“I’m not in Mayor Bill de Blasio’s shoes.  I don’t sit behind his desk, and I never will, but it’s certainly interesting. You have shocked me down here in beautiful southeast Louisiana.’”

“The mayor of Willacoochee, Georgia, was similarly stunned. ‘I’m not familiar with none of that,’ Samuel Newson said.”

“The mayor of Harrisville, Utah — who was so baffled to receive a call from The Post that she questioned if the reporter had the wrong number — asked if SOTA recipients are connected to social services in the towns where they move.”

‘“Are they just cutting them loose and saying, “Here you go?” Or are they making sure they don’t find themselves in the same situation a year later?’ Michelle Tait asked.”

“Pols [politicians] in New Jersey, where 2,226 SOTA families have moved, say the answer to Tait’s latter question is ‘No.’”

“Mayor Tony Vauss of Irvington [New Jersey], the destination for 278 SOTA families, said he is ‘highly disturbed by the lack of communication from New York City and the lack of oversight of this program by the city.  ‘SOTA recipients are the population of citizens who require ongoing social services and resources … Therefore, once SOTA ceases funding, program recipients end up using our state and local resources to maintain themselves.’”

“DHS spokesman Isaac McGinn said the city ‘remains committed to using every tool at our disposal to help these families and individuals find stability in the ways that work for them.  Any American, including any New Yorker experiencing homelessness, has the right to seek housing where they can afford it and employment where they can find it.’”

Again…, these people are just soooo manipulative, so deceptive, and soooo disingenuous.

The New York Times chose to begrudgingly report about this program with this liberally spun headline: “City Aids Homeless With One-Way Tickets Home.”

Ha!

Yes…, and NYC baked each one of them an apple pie as a going away present before they unceremoniously gave them their one-way ticket out of town.

I’m sure Mayor de Bozio will end up winning some kind of liberal reward for this program now that they were forced to acknowledge it.

anyc 5

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could all just ship our problems somewhere else for someone else to deal with?

Apparently that’s only an option for the liberal elites who know so much better than the rest of us uneducated “deplorables.”

The liberal mantra is “Do as I say, not as I do!”

Over the Labor Day weekend, 35 people were shot in the city of Chicago, and seven people were killed as a result of gun violence.

Unless you were tuned into Fox News you probably didn’t hear about this.

That’s because this, of course, was ignored by democrats and their partners in crime, the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media,” because Chicago already has many of the gun laws which are being proposed by democrats to solve gun violence nationally.

chitown 6

chitown 9

Another example of “propaganda by omission.”

According to Adam Shaw of Fox News, “Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot clashed with Sen. Ted Cruz over the latest burst of gun violence in the city, claiming Monday that Chicago’s decades-long crime problem is actually the fault of Republican-run states like Indiana – because they don’t have ‘commonsense gun legislation’ in place.”

Ohhhh, riiiiight.  I get it.  Of course…, Chicago’s crime rate and gun violence problems are due to the Republicans in Indiana!

Makes sense to me…, NOT!

I guess you have to have some sense before you can have any common sense, Ms. Lightfoot.

She then added that Senator Cruz should, ‘“Keep our name out of your mouth.’”

Oooooh.  That sounds like a threat!

chitown 5

It also sounds like Lori Lightfoot (Seriously?) is trying to deny Senator Cruz his right of freedom of speech.

Do as we say, not as we do.

It sounds like she had “republicans” in her mouth.

It sounds like she had “Indiana” in her mouth.

Do as we say, not as we do.

chitown 10

“The retort came after Cruz, R-Texas, tweeted that ‘gun control doesn’t work’ and pointed to the Democrat-run city as evidence that ‘disarming law-abiding citizens isn’t the answer.’ His tweet referenced an article reporting that at least 35 people were shot in Chicago during Labor Day weekend amid a continuing crime wave in the city.”

‘“Stopping violent criminals—prosecuting & getting them off the street—BEFORE they commit more violent crimes is the most effective way to reduce murder rates,’ Cruz tweeted. ‘Let’s protect our citizens.’”

Lightfoot, who was elected mayor of Chicago earlier this year, then tweeted something about Indiana, Wisconsin and Mississippi and recovered firearms.

chitown 14

chitown 3

Now she’s got “Wisconsin” and Mississippi” in her mouth as well.

Mississippi?  Really?  What the hell does Mississippi have to do with Chicago?

Do as we say, not as we do.

Don’t you know it’s everyone and anyone’s fault EXCEPT the poor helpless people of Chicago.

chitown 4

She then went on to call Republicans ‘cowards’ and blah, blah, blah and blah, blah, blah.

If this feud goes on much longer, we’re bound to see the race card come out!

‘“When @tedcruz and the @gop dismiss common sense gun policies, they disrespect victims and their families, who deserve to live without pain and fear,’ she [Lori Lightfoot] added.”

chitown 11

chitown 12

Yes, Ms. Lightfoot…, “disrespected victims and their families,” in the city of Chicago, do “deserve to live without pain and fear.”

The people of Chicago also deserve more than the poor excuse for a mayor you are.

“Sleepless in Seattle?” No…, homeless in Seattle.

Did you know that Seattle spends $100,000 “to help” every homeless man, woman and child there!

Yes folks…, it’s true.

$100,000 a person!!!

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

So what can be the problem you ask?

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

homeless 1

When liberals are running the show, NO AMOUNT OF MONEY IS EVER ENOUGH!

Think about it!

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

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

$400,000 a year would allow you a mortgage or rent payment of over $8,000 a month, spending only a quarter of your money for housing!

That would leave this family over $300,000 a year for utilities, food, and anything else they would need.

In other words…, THEY’D BE LIVING PRETTY DAMN GOOD!

Even a single homeless person could afford a mortgage or rent payment of $4,000 a month with over $4,000 left over for other needs.

Again…, a better available budget than most Americans.

SO WHAT THE HELL IS THE PROBLEM HERE!!!

homeless 3

I know rent in Seattle is expensive, but it isn’t that much!

Oh yeah…, I forgot…, we have liberals in charge here.

homeless 2

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.

homeless 5

homeless 4

Ok, granted, many of these homeless people have mental health issues and/or drug addiction problems.

THIS IS STILL MORE THAN ENOUGH MONEY TO HOUSE THEM AND TREAT THEM!!!

With that much money being spent, THERE IS NO EXCUSE WHY THESE PEOPLE HAVE TO LIVE OUT ON THE STREET!

NO EXCUSE!

So where is all of this money going if it’s not going to the help the homeless people up there in Seattle?

You can bet the money is mostly going to an “army” of county administrators, and staff who do their best to make sure that, with whatever money is left, there are enough clean needles to go around for all of the homeless drug users.

If the situation wasn’t so sad and pathetic, it’d be comical.

homeless 6

Oh…, and did you know that Seattle is in King county there in Washington state?

Yes.  They renamed their county after Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. back in 1986.

I doubt that Dr. King knew where the hell Seattle was, nor would he probably care.

I’m sure he appreciated the sentiment, however.

According to Barnini Chakraborty of Fox News, “Seattle residents blame inefficient elected officials for homeless problem, and say they’ve ‘lost faith’ in system.”

Really?!

They just figured all that out now?!

Who do they think elected these buffoons?

We’ve got the clueless electing the brainless up there in Seattle.

Did you also realize that “the richest man in America calls Seattle home?”

These  ultra rich people tend to donate quite a bit of money…, mostly to ease their guilt.

homeless 7

The “richest man in America” could easily match the billion dollars being spent by taxpayers in Seattle, and double all of the figures we showed could be available for the homeless there.

homeless 8

Yes…, “the richest man in America call Seattle home, and “so do thousands of others who are forced onto the streets because they are too poor, too addicted or too detached from reality. At night, the city’s homeless sleep wherever they can — in tents crammed in parking garages, in parks or under highway overpasses. Some feel victimized by a society that has moved on without them. Others feel preyed upon by politicians eager to push pet projects and scattered initiatives that make themselves look good but do little else. Sick of stepping over used condoms, broken lighters and needles, residents say they are heartbroken to see the city they’ve loved turn into a dangerous, drug-infested den of filth and human misery.”

Sounds lovely!

“Seattle officials are quick to blame big businesses operating in the area — Starbucks, Microsoft and Amazon — for driving up housing costs.”

Typical liberal move.  Trying to shift the blame onto the business sector.

Damn these big businesses for providing thousands of jobs to the people of our community!

I think I’ve shown that affording the rent in Seattle should not be an issue for these homeless people.

“In an effort to address the homeless crisis, Seattle’s City Council has looked at different ways to raise money. In May 2018, they unanimously approved a $275 tax per employee on Seattle’s largest employers. Pitched as a progressive revenue source aimed at tackling homelessness, the tax was estimated to raise $47 million a year.”

They want to spend more money?!

Like I said earlier…, when democrats are running the show, NO AMOUNT OF MONEY IS EVER GOING TO BE ENOUGH!

“Residents say there is a deep disconnect between them and those in charge and say elected officials are tone-deaf and offer up simple solutions to a complex problem.”

Uh, in my opinion it is just the opposite.

Elected officials are offering up complex and costly solutions to a problem that could be addressed with simpler, common sense, solutions.

Crowd taunts and throws things at Philadelphia police officers…, during latest standoff and shootout!

Believe me my friends…, the wild, wild, west was never this wild…, and certainly not this stupid.

Danielle Wallace of Fox News reports that, “Onlookers were seen taunting and throwing things at Philadelphia police Wednesday night amid a wild shootout and subsequent standoff that saw six cops wounded, and video posted online shows one woman shoving a police officer making his way to the scene.”

Put your cursor on the hyperlink, press “ctrl” and click to watch the video.

https://youtu.be/Qc5RUGgb-6A

Philadelphia’s KYW-TV reporter Alexandria Hoff said, “A major moment of disappointment this evening was watching a crowd of people taunt police officers, laughing and yelling at them in the midst of the gunfire!”

philly 4

philly 5

Unbelievable.

philly 1

Who are these “people?”

And I use the term “people” begrudgingly.

philly 7

‘“Several officers with the Narcotics Strike Force were serving a warrant at the multifamily home — in connection with what may have been a drug-related offense — when things “went awry almost immediately,” and the shooter opened fire,’ Police Commissioner Richard Ross Jr. said.”

“The dramatic shootout in Philadelphia stretched on for more than eight hours as six officers were shot.”

“After withstanding more than five hours of gunfire, SWAT officers managed to get the two officers and three hostages out of the residence safely. The gunman eventually surrendered just after midnight Thursday, exiting the residence with his hands in the air and with a police light shining on him, surrounded by a cloud of tear gas.”

I applaud these officers for doing their jobs and risking their lives…, but on the other hand I have to wonder “who the hell would want to be a cop in these big cities these days?!”

You couldn’t pay me enough to put up with that crap, while risking my life everyday on top of it.

How long is it going to be before there won’t be anyone to do that job?

How long is it going to be before the gangs and drug lords run the cities and are the law there?

How far away are we from an “Escape from New York” type of scenario?

philly 2

In case you’re not familiar with this movie, “Escape from New York” is a movie made in 1981 about a crime-ridden United States in 1997, (We’re over 20 years past that now!) where New York City’s Manhattan Island (the entire island) has been converted into a maximum-security prison, and “once you go in you never come out.”

Think about it.

How far are we away from just abandoning some of these cities and letting these people who want to live in a lawless world just sit there and kill each other off whenever they want?

If they don’t want the police there and they don’t appreciate the police there, then fine…, but then realize you’re on your own, and don’t come crying later.

As usual, there are all kinds of calls for additional gun control laws, blah, blah, blah…, blah, blah, blah.

philly 11

Excuse me…, but isn’t discharging a weapon in the city already a crime?

philly 9

Isn’t shooting at police officers already a crime?

Isn’t attempted homicide already a crime?

The problem here is with the individual.

The problem here is with the “justice” system.

philly 10

This individual already had a criminal record as long as your arm.

According to Travis Fedschun of Fox News, “Court documents obtained by FOX29 show Maurice Hill’s [the shooter’s] lengthy criminal history, including a least a dozen arrests since he turned 18.  The 36-year-old has been in and out of prison since 2002 after convictions for such crimes as illegal possession of guns and aggravated assault.”

“Records obtained by FOX29 also showed dozens of serious charges over the years that were later withdrawn in court.”

“Hill also spent time in federal prison, pleading guilty to federal firearms violations in 2008.”

The problem is he should have never been out on the street and free to commit another crime.

The problem is they should have locked this guy up a long time ago and thrown away the key.

The people of Philadelphia are extremely lucky that the incompetent liberal court system there didn’t cost someone their life in this latest shooting.

As usual, the liberals are demonstrating they are good at exploiting a situation rather than helping to realistically address the situation.

philly 8

Slapping people on the wrists for using a gun illegally just can’t be acceptable anymore.  They need to be taken out of circulation and put away.

Using a weapon improperly needs to be treated with zero tolerance.

Build 20 more prisons for these people if need be.  It would definitely be worth all of the innocent lives we would save.

An update: The “little old” Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) – a wolf in sheep’s clothing?

This blog is a follow-up to my previous blog about the SPLC from June, 5, 2018.

You may have noticed the biased mainstream media making more references to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) as of late.  They say, “The Southern poverty Law Center called for this…,” and “the Southern Poverty Law Center said that…,” and so on.

So again…, let’s review.  Who the heck is this Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and what’s their deal?”

Well, here we go …, again:

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center’s own website: “The SPLC is dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry and to seeking justice for the most vulnerable members of our society.  Using litigation, education, and other forms of advocacy, the SPLC works toward the day when the ideals of equal justice and equal opportunity will be a reality.”

As usual, and like it is with most of these supposed do-gooder organizations, their cause sounds quite noble.  I can see Superman now…, with the American flag waving behind him…, declaring he is fighting, “The never ending battle for truth, justice, and the American way…,” and the SPLC!

The truth is that this mission statement is a “star spangled” mask worn by the organization to cover up the ugly truths of what they actually hope to accomplish.

The truth is that, “…because the SPLC depends on racism, violence, and division for its revenue and reason for being, they have reason to want more of these terrible things, or at least the appearance of more. Their vested interest is not in solving and reducing these social issues, but in maximizing and perpetuating them.”

splc 3

The truth is that the SPLC spends the vast majority of its funds on its own salaries, propagandizing, and promoting its own narrative, rather than the public good.

Joy Pullmann, executive editor for The Federalist, also recently reported, “The SPLC is basically a very effective scam organization that uses images of the KKK in the white outfits, and now, Donald Trump’s policies, to scare donors into sending them piles of money. Trump-mongering has been very good for their business. The SPLC’s latest IRS form, from 2017, shows that “Gifts, grants, contributions, membership fees” to SPLC almost tripled, from $50,297,653 in 2015 to $132,044,179 (yes, that’s $132 million!) in 2016, of course the year Trump ran and won the presidency. Investigative reporters and actual anti-hate-crimes groups say SPLC is largely a shell organization that uses masterful marketing techniques to rake in big-time profits for its staff, especially founder Morris Dees.”

splc 4

“Its two largest expenses are propaganda operations: creating its annual lists of ‘haters’ and ‘extremists,’ and running a big effort that pushes ‘tolerance education,’ from a very liberal point of view of course, through more than 400,000 public-school teachers.”

“But what is the single biggest effort undertaken by the SPLC? Fundraising, of course. On the organization’s 2015 IRS 990 form it declared $10 million of direct fundraising expenses, far more than it has ever spent on any legal services.”

Last year, a Washington Free Beacon investigation showed SPLC keeps millions in offshore accounts, which charity experts labeled “a huge red flag” and “completely unacceptable.”

The truth is, it’s funny how almost all of the “haters” and “extremists” the SPLC tends to identify are white and/or conservative.

The truth is that when the SPLC says, “The SPLC is dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry and to seeking justice for the most vulnerable members of our society,” what they really mean is that they are dedicated to fighting those who do not agree with their liberal and/or anti-American socialist agenda.

splc 5

The truth is that when the SPLC says, “…the SPLC works toward the day when the ideals of equal justice and equal opportunity will be a reality,” they mean they are working towards the day when their radical liberal ideals are basically unopposed.

The truth is that the SPLC can always fall back on the old reliable hate groups, the Klu Klux Klan and Nazi related groups, and the old rallying cries of racism and prejudice. But these groups and ideals are now just used as “cover” by the SPLC.

“SPLC is entitled to its own opinions, but it is not entitled to respect for them or a pretense that they are fair, neutral, unbiased, or free of self-serving motivations.”

In an expose, Harper’s Bazaar magazine said, “Former SPLC lawyer Gloria Browne, who resigned to protest its behavior, “told reporters that the Center’s programs were calculated to cash in on ‘black pain and white guilt.’” They are not targeted to need or effective social solutions.”

“Treating SPLC as a good-faith arbiter of public discourse grants speech police power to an organization whose business model is to make money from poisoning public discourse. Those who care about free speech and justice will grant no such power to folks who, like SPLC, exploit these noble and necessary ideas for their own selfish, cynical, socially destructive ends.”

The SPLC actually did earn a level of credibility back in the 1970’s (40 years ago) fighting some anti-KKK cases. Sadly, that credibility has long been sold out and co-opted.

The truth is that the SPLC of 2019 has little resemblance to the SPLC of the 1970’s.  The SPLC has been high jacked by the democrats and “the swamp” in general, and set-up to be an “untouchable” and an uncontrollable propaganda arm of the democrat party.

So there you have it. The next time you hear a reporter or a commentator refer to the Southern Poverty Law Center, you know where they are coming from.

splc 2

Just recently, the SPLC has reared its ugly head again in a “piling on” effort against former Trump Administration officials.

According to Bradford Betz for Fox News, “Immigration and civil rights groups recently sent a list to the CEOs of American companies urging them not to hire Trump officials who were involved in last year’s separation of migrant children from their families.”

Hmmm…, that’s funny…, and disingenuous.  This is the first I’ve heard of this blacklisting, even though the policy mentioned here was established under President Bill Clinton, continued under President George W. Bush, and then continued, and flourished, as well under President Obama prior to President Trump.

So why the sudden cry to blacklist government officials involved in just following the incredibly inept laws they have been given by Congress?

It’s just an extension of the intolerant behavior being exhibited by our fascist democrat friends across the social spectrum in our country today.

“As outgoing Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen looks for her next job following her resignation Sunday, she may find herself battling a liberal blacklisting effort against those who’ve served in the Trump administration.”

“Nielsen’s name appears on a list that a cabal of immigration and civil rights groups recently sent to the CEOs of American companies, urging them not to hire Trump officials who were involved in last year’s separation of migrant children from their families.”

“Other current and former Trump administration officials targeted include John Kelly, the former White House chief of staff, and Sarah Sanders, the current White House press secretary.”

‘“Some of these individuals have left the administration in recent months,’ the letter to the CEOs states. ‘Regardless of when they leave, they should not be allowed to seek refuge in your boardrooms or corner offices. Allowing them to step off the revolving door and into your welcoming arms should be a nonstarter.’”

“The letter was signed by 41 immigration and civil rights groups, including the Southern Poverty Law Center, which has targeted Nielsen in the past.”

“The coalition targeting the Trump administration officials also purchased an ad in Sunday’s New York Times that read: ‘Attention Corporate America: Don’t let hate into your boardroom.’ The ad features a MAGA-like hat emblazoned with the slogan ‘Put Kids in Cages.’”

Well…, at least they don’t have to worry about Amazon hiring any of these former Trump officials in New York City!  Wa, wa, waaaah.

The crazy liberal left just seems to keep forgetting that conservatives and “just plain old common sense” Americans have been awakened to the left’s shenanigans now, and there’s no going back.

We’re on to you.

We know where you’re coming from…, and we know you’re as un-American as the day is long.

WINNING!

Is this the “final straw” regarding liberal hypocrisy?

I’m referring to the banning of plastic straws all across “the civilized world,” in favor of the more “environmentally” friendly paper straws.

straws 5

The only problem is…, drum roll please…, the plastic straws are actually the more environmentally friendly ones!!!

straws 1

straws 3

straws 4

Of course, in the liberal world…, the appearance of something being effective is considerably more important than the actual effectiveness of something.

Rob Picheta, of CNN Business, reports that, “McDonald’s has reportedly admitted that its new paper straws, rolled out last year to help ‘protect the environment,’ can’t be recycled — unlike the plastic versions they replaced.”

straws 10

“The fast food giant acknowledged on Monday that the new versions are too thick to be processed by its recyclers.  While the materials are recyclable, their current thickness makes it difficult for them to be processed by our waste solution providers, who also help us recycle our paper cups,” a McDonald’s spokesman told the UK’s Press Association news agency.”

Details, details!

Let’s not lose sight of the fact that we got those evil plastic straws banned…, regardless of the actual effect on the environment!

straws 8

“The issue was first revealed by The Sun newspaper, which published an internal McDonald’s memo (Was it written by Ronald McDonald himself?!), saying that the company’s paper straws ‘are not yet recyclable and should be disposed of in general waste until further notice.’”

“When the firm announced the introduction of paper straws in June 2018, it said the move was ‘part of wider efforts to protect the environment.’”

If the effort was much wider we’d have a real environmental crisis on our hands!

‘“The government’s ambitious plans, combined with strong customer opinion, has helped to accelerate the move away from plastic and I’m proud that we’ve been able to play our part in helping to achieve this societal change,’ Paul Pomroy, CEO of McDonald’s UK and Ireland, said in a press release at the time.”

straws 6

Ha!

Yes…, he’s sooo proud they’ve “helped to accelerate the move away from plastic and proud that they’ve been able to play their part in helping to achieve this societal change…,” even though their change is actually harming the environment more.

That’s liberalism for ‘ya.

straws 7

“But the new straws were unpopular even before the latest revelation.  Numerous social media users complained that they became soggy in drinks, and a petition calling on the firm to bring back their old straws has been signed more than 50,000 times.”

Our straws are soggy!

Bring back the evil, environment destroying, plastic straws!

The fate of planet Earth be damned!

When will “Black” politicians stop hiding behind the color of their skin?

Over the weekend, President Trump tweeted out some criticisms of Rep. Elijah Cummings, who happens to be part African-American and a democrat from Maryland, who represents a district in Baltimore.

These tweets were a response to Cummings’ comments which were critical of the conditions at border processing centers. Cummings last week had questioned crowded border conditions and criticized the lack of basic humanitarian needs such as sanitation being met.

cummings 1

“Cummings sarcastically asked Kevin McAleenan, the acting head of Homeland Security, ‘You feel like you’re doing a great job, right?’ according to Sommer Brokaw and Allen Cone of UPI.  ‘What does that mean when a child is sitting in their own feces, can’t take a shower, come on man, what’s that about?  None of us would have our children in that position.  They are human beings.’”

cummings 3

What a pompous ass.  What a disingenuous, pompous ass.

Oh, oh…, I guess that makes me a racist…, because you can’t question the integrity of an African-American politician you know…, unless they happen to be conservative that is!

cummings 9

You say “None of us would have our children in that position.”  Have you taken a look around your district in the last twenty years Congressman Cummings?

cummings 13

Many children in your district live in conditions much worse that the conditions you dreamed up, regarding our border processing centers, Mr. Cummings.

Why haven’t these children, these U.S. citizens, which you represent in your district, gotten the same level of your concern as have these illegal immigrants halfway across the country?

‘“I want to concentrate on these children and I want to make sure that they are okay,’ he continued. ‘I said it before, and I’ll say it again. It’s not the deed that you do to a child. It’s the memory.’”

Oh…, such eloquent words, Mr. Cummings.  You’re such a gifted orator!  Which one of your staffers fed you that line of crap?

“He added that the Trump administration was responsible for separating thousands of migrant children, some as young as 2, from their parents.”

‘“It is the Trump administration’s own policies that are causing these problems,’ he said. ‘They all increased the number of people being held and unnecessarily detained … The damage the Trump administration has inflicted and is continuing to inflict will affect these children for the rest of their lives.’”

cummings 6

No, it’s not the Trump Administration’s own policies, Mr. Cummings.  The Trump Administration is just following the laws established by you and your friend in Congress, Mr. Cummings.

If you and your friends in Congress had done its job anytime over the last twenty years or so, these situations at our southern border would not even be an issue now.

‘“I’m talking about human beings,’ Cummings said. ‘I’m not talking about people that come from, as The President said, shitholes. These are human beings. Human beings just trying to live a better life.’”

Oh, so none of these people come from your district in Baltimore, Mr. Cummings?

Sorry, but it was just too hard to let that one slip by!

People in your district aren’t “human beings?”

People in your district aren’t “trying to live a better life?”

And it was Senator Bernie Sanders who described your district as being akin to a “third world country.”

According to David Montanaro of Fox News, “[President] Trump was heavily criticized over the weekend after he branded Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., a “brutal bully” for his treatment of Border Patrol officials at committee hearings — and described Cummings’ district as “far worse and more dangerous” than the southern border.’”

cummings 15

“Radio host Rush Limbaugh said, “President Trump is speaking the absolute truth about problems in the city of Baltimore under Democrat-led administrations.’”

‘“What he’s saying here is the absolute truth, but it’s not supposed to be said about any place where the Democrats are in charge,’ he said Monday on Fox & Friends.’”

‘“Cumming[s’] District is a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess. If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous & filthy place,’ Trump tweeted, before calling for an investigation into why Baltimore received so much federal funding.”

cummings 7

Ya…, let’s open up an investigation checking into what has happened to all of those hundreds of millions of dollars earmarked for Elijah Cummings’ district in Baltimore!

From what I’ve seen, Mr. Cummings seems to be a big fan of investigations!

“Limbaugh added, ‘It’s about time somebody pushed back against the human misery caused by Democrat leadership.’”

“Cummings, the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, responded Sunday by declaring he has ‘no doubt that Trump is racist.’”

cummings 5

Really, Mr. Cummings?

Why can you be critical of him, and that’s not racist, but as soon he’s critical of you that’s considered racist?

Just sayin’.

This seems to be a typical case of someone being able to “dish it out,” but not being able to take it himself.

Remember…, you started this Mr. Cummings.

cummings 11

“Limbaugh continued by adding, ‘The Democrats get to claim they are compassionate and that they care, but they never do anything that actually improves the quality of the lives of their constituents. Their constituents are as unhappy today as they were 50 years ago.’”

The “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” is of course co-conspirators in this “racist” charade which has been perpetrated on the American people.

cummings 12

Hopefully our African-American friends will increasingly wake up to this fact and run these frauds right out of town and right out of Congress!

The treatment these New York Police Officers were forced to endure is absolutely sickening.

After watching the video of these poor officers being humiliated, as they were just doing their job, brings a few words to mind:

UNCIVILIZED,

ANIMALISTIC,

DISGRACEFUL,

NAUSEATING,

UNIMAGINABLE,

REPREHENSIBLE,

INEXCUSABLE,

… just for starters.

Are you getting the impression I feel these (I’m not even going to go as far as to call them “people”) animals should be euthanized?

Good…, then I’m getting my point across clearly.

If you haven’t seen the video, what we have here is two New York Police Department (NYPD) officers making an arrest of an individual in the area known as Harlem in New York City.

nypd3

In the process of doing their job, they are continuously splashed with water by onlookers, until finally one sub-human actually dumps a whole bucket of water over the head of one of the officers.  The other officer gets water thrown at him with a bucket and then the bucket is thrown at the officer, striking him in the head.

nypd 1

nypd 7

nypd 4

I’m not sure where these officers found the self-control to seemingly ignore and just walk away from this situation…, but they are bigger men than me apparently.

I know these officers have some level of pride and honor, however, and you can’t expect these individuals to put up with this type of absolute humiliation and utter disrespect for long.

According to Thomas Tracey, Rocco Parascandola and John Annese of The New York Daily News, ‘“If these kids [the ones throwing the water, and I’m not sure I’d call them “kids’] were injured when they were being arrested, then (Internal Affairs) would have to be involved,’ an NYPD lieutenant said. ‘They probably weighed the risk and thought it was too much.’”

In other words, the cops don’t feel that the department or city hall has their backs.

‘“But my dad was a cop, and in my father’s day all of these guys would have been in the hospital,’ the lieutenant said. ‘The job’s got these cops scared to take action.’”

How long are people going to be willing to do this job?

Have these liberal politicians turned this into a job that just can’t be done?

How much money do you have to earn to warrant putting up with crap from both sides…, the criminals and the liberal politicians?

And don’t think there isn’t a racial aspect to this as well.

These African-Americans would not have dumped water over a Black officer’s head.

Again…, these African-Americans WOULD NOT have dumped water over a Black officer’s head.

If anyone out there disagrees with that statement, then please, I’d like to hear from you.  Please message me and convince otherwise.

It really hurts me to even use the word “American” in the same breath when referring to these missing links.

“America,” as we know it, is quickly becoming divided between the big cities and the rest of us.

nypd 8

When the rest of us see things like this incident, we just can’t believe our eyes.

We wonder “who are these ‘people,’” and where did they come from?

nypd 2

This type of disrespect towards officers of the law is just inconceivable to the rest of the country.

Liberals are quick to label these types of feelings as racist…, but they’re honestly not…, these are reactions to actions and behaviors…, not skin color.
