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!

Taxing the “Rich” 101.

Here is my first public service installment from MrEricksonRules’ University, highlighting my course, “Taxing the Rich 101.”

“Taxing the Rich 101” rule number one: While “taxing the rich” may sound good, the truth is that big corporations and “the rich” never really get hurt by increased taxes.

“Taxing the Rich 101” rule number two: The truth is that big corporations and “the rich” just shuffle their money and assets around, and get around tax increases by using other “legal” means to protect their wealth, while passing on the pain of the tax increases down to the 99% of us who are just trying to make a living.

“Taxing the Rich 101” rule number three: “Taxing the rich” really means taxing everyone but “the rich.”

Case in point: Big corporations and “the rich” didn’t even get hurt by the pandemic.  In fact, they had record earnings and increased their wealth dramatically during the pandemic and the oppressive lockdowns, while the unemployment rate skyrocketed, and most small business suffered immensely and many thousands of them went out of business.  

Did everyone get that?

I hope so, because that’s the extent of the course.

The final exam is a pretty easy one.

You may say, “But MrErickson, we already realize this.” 

Undoubtedly, this isn’t telling some of my readers anything new, but this is written for those of us out there who still believe that “taxing the rich” may sound good.   

Now that we all understand what “taxing the rich” really means, let’s take a look at “President” Biden’s and the democrats’ proposed tax hike.

Biden reportedly planning first major tax hike since 1993 in next economic package

Spending bill could include hikes in the tax rate paid by corporations, wealthy Americans

According to Megan Henney of FOXBusiness, “President Biden is reportedly planning to include the first major tax hike in close to 30 years in the next economic spending bill set to follow his $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package.”

“The next spending initiative — which is expected to be even bigger, costing as much as $4 trillion — won’t rely on just government debt as a funding source and could include an increase in both the corporate tax rate and the individual rate for high-income earners, according to Bloomberg News, citing a person familiar with the matter.”

“The planned changes include: raising the corporate tax rate to 28% from 21%, raising the income tax rate on individuals earning more than $400,000, expanding the estate tax, creating a higher capital-gains tax rate for individuals earning at least $1 million annually and paring back tax preferences for so-called pass-through businesses.”

“Pass-through businesses” include sole proprietorships, partnerships, limited liability companies, and S-corporations.”

Pass-through businesses represent around 95% of the businesses in our country, meaning small businesses…, as if they haven’t been hammered during the pandemic enough. 

“The White House did not immediately respond to a FOX Business request for comment.”

No surprise there.

“The proposed tax increases will mostly mirror Biden’s proposals during the 2020 presidential campaign, when he vowed to reverse former President Donald Trump’s 2017 tax cuts on ‘day one’ of his presidency. That includes raising the rate paid by corporations and wealthy Americans and making the tax code more progressive.”

Remember, “more progressive” really means more oppressive.

“Any tax increases included in the legislation would likely take effect beginning in 2022, Bloomberg reported, with some lawmakers wary of raising rates until the economy more fully recovers from the coronavirus pandemic.”

“An analysis of Biden’s tax plan conducted by the Tax Policy Center estimated it would raise $2.1 trillion in new revenue over a decade.”

So, that means this tax increase would pay for the “COVID Relief Bill” by 2032.

Nice.

“It’s unclear what other measures would be included in the proposal, but on the campaign trail, Biden emphasized the need for new infrastructure investments and measures to combat climate change, as well as ways to revitalize the manufacturing industry and revamp housing, education and health care.”

“Raising taxes will serve as a key test for the nascent [new] administration as it navigates a 50-50 Senate in which moderate Democratic lawmakers like Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Krysten Sinema of Arizona play an outsized role.”

If they’re really moderate democrat lawmakers, why do the vote with the rest of the democrats EVERY time?

The truth is, Joe Manchin and Krysten Sinema just talk like moderate democrat lawmakers, but they really aren’t.

“The infrastructure proposal is sure to ignite a firestorm of criticism from Republicans, and possibly some moderate Democrats, who are worried about the exorbitant level of government spending.”

Ha!

Democrats who are “worried about the exorbitant level of government spending?!!!”

I’m sorry to tell you, Ms. Henney, but those democrats don’t exist.  

Please be on the lookout for my next course, made available to everyone free of charge, from MrEricksonRules’ University.

It’s a liberal “jungle” out there!

Please be aware that every day, while you go about your life, there is an army of people out there working to divide, change, and undermine our way of life and our country.   

It’s true.

There are hundreds of these organization in The United States, including:

The Southern Poverty Law Center

The Brennan Center for Justice

Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB)

Ballot Initiative Strategy Center (BISC)

State Innovation Exchange (SIX)

ProgressNow

MoveOn

The Pew Research Center

National Immigration Law Center

American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)

Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN)

Black Lives Matter

Wellstone

Resurgent Left

Social Media (Google, Facebook, Twitter)  

The mainstream media (NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, The Washington Post, National Public Radio)   

Just to name a few…, although that’s enough!  

All of these groups will say they are “non-partisan,” mainly for tax purposes, but they are anything but, and they’re all very far left of being “non-partisan.” 

I think, to them, “non-partisan” means “without a conscience.”

All of these groups are organizing, training (indoctrinating), fundraising, manipulating, scheming, and taking actions to destroy our democracy twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.

None of these organizations give any quarter, nor do they take any prisoners.  They are all ruthless and unapologetic regarding their neo-fascist practices.

The radical left has done a good job indoctrinating all of their “good little Nazis,” who are convinced they are the ones fighting “the Nazis.”

They are really quite sad and pathetic, but, in reality they’re very dangerous.

First, Americans need to realize and concede that these anti-America groups and factions exist.

Secondly, we have to drag them out into the sunlight and expose them for what they are.

And thirdly, we have to fight them, resist them, and counter their actions via any means possible…, be that politically, lawfully, socially, or economically.

These people cannot just be allowed to operate, under our noses and without any rebuttal any longer.

These anti-America “Americans” must be confronted, engaged, and defeated.

Our lives and our children’s lives literally depend on it.

“Cheaters, cheaters, pumpkin eaters!”

I remember this rhyme from when I was a kid.

Yes, it is childish, but, whatever, I’m rolling with it!  

During Joe Biden’s October 24th appearance on the progressive podcast “Pod Save America,” Biden said, “We’re in a situation where we have put together, and you guys did it for our administration, President Obama’s administration before this, we have put together I think the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics.”

In this instance, I believe you Sleepy Joe!

It’s amazing the information you can get out of Joe Biden if you just let him talk without the aid of a teleprompter. 

So, now that we have that established…, according to the Brennan Center for Justice, “It is important to protect the integrity of our elections. But we must be careful not to undermine free and fair access to the ballot in the name of preventing phantom voter fraud.”

“Politicians at all levels of government have repeatedly, and falsely, claimed the 2016 and 2018 elections were marred by millions of people voting illegally. However, extensive research reveals that fraud is very rare, voter impersonation is virtually nonexistent, and many instances of alleged fraud are, in fact, mistakes by voters or administrators. The same is true for mail ballots, which are secure and essential to holding a safe election amid the coronavirus pandemic.”

“The Brennan Center’s seminal report, ‘The Truth About Voter Fraud,’ conclusively demonstrated that most allegations of fraud turn out to be baseless and that most of the few remaining allegations reveal irregularities and other forms of election misconduct.”

Of course they are.  

Have you read the MrEricksonRule’s Center for Justice report that brings to light massive democrat election fraud?

It carries about as much weight as this piece of Brennan Center propaganda.

Supposedly, The Brennan Center for Justice at the New York University Law School is a bipartisan law and public policy institute seen as liberal or progressive in its policy positions and views. The organization is named after Supreme Court Justice William J. Brennan.

The Brennan Center’s own website says, “The Brennan Center is equal parts think tank, public interest law firm and advocacy organization. The Brennan Center serves as a generator of legal theory and as an expert on democracy reform, equipping and empowering journalists, attorneys, civic engagement organizations, and other national partners to achieve immediate wins and make long-term strides toward an inclusive and just democracy.”

Their form of “an inclusive and just democracy” does not include people who don’t think like they do, and “just democracy” is whatever they say it is…, and you better not question them.  

What a couple of good little Nazis!

If you visit the Brennan Center’s website, it will become apparent quite quickly that they oppose President Trump and are proactive in their attacks on him and his administration.   

It would not surprise me at all if these people were a driving force behind many of the issues we find ourselves having with this election.

It’s amazing how many of these “centers” exist in our country, whose soul intention is destroying our country as we know it.     

I’ve heard many “talking heads” representing the democrats, and many hosts and contributors to many shows on the fake news and liberal propaganda media say:

“There may be some instances of voter fraud, but not enough to matter.”

“There may be some cases voter fraud, but not enough to make a difference in the outcome.”

“The rate of voter fraud is within acceptable ranges.”

There is a huge difference between “voter fraud” on a case by case instance, and large scale “ballot fraud” or large scale “ballot data dumps,” “intentional voting machine software manipulation,” and overall “election fraud.”

 The 2020 election cannot be compared to prior elections. 

In the 2020 election, democrats were prepared to pull out all the stops if needed, and do whatever it took to defeat President Trump.

That is precisely why counts were halted in battleground states on election night, after it was determined President Trump was on track to win these states.

This gave the democrats time to produce enough votes, electronically, or physically, to overtake President Trump’s vote totals, when the counting recommenced.  

It was quite obvious to me, and I will go to my grave believing this was the case.

Whether or not The President’s legal team is able to actually gain access to the system and the physical ballots, in order to be able to document this cheating and bring it to light is another story.

If they really believe the election was fair and square, and they are interested in making sure our elections are fair and square, Joe Biden, his campaign, and the democrats should welcome validation of this election’s integrity, not ignore it, fight it, or run from it.

Nobody wants their vote to be disqualified by an opposing illegitimate vote.

Put your hand up if you’re willing to sacrifice your vote to a cheater.

Hmmm…, I’m not seeing any hands out there.

And it doesn’t make any difference if the cheating is on a small scale or a large scale.

Cheating is cheating.

It’s the year 2020 ladies and gentlemen.  We are more than capable of instituting an election system which would safeguard us from virtually all of the fraud issues, if that’s what our politicians (and I’m referring mainly to the democrats) wanted.

Biden and the democrats are not going to be able effectively govern the country if tens of millions of Americans believe Biden is an illegitimate president who got into office by way of a rigged and stolen election.     

Hopefully, we won’t be forced to deal with that situation.

“Which of these things is not like the others?”

“Which of these things just doesn’t belong?”

“Can you tell which thing is not like the others, by the time I finish my song?”

I’m sorry, because this is actually a trick question.

The correct answer is “no one on the list doesn’t belong!”

They all belong, because they’re all treasonous vermin!

And they all had many accessories along the way as well.

Not mention the lying, complicit, fake news, liberal propaganda, mainstream media.   

Actually, a case could be made that Benedict Arnold “doesn’t belong,” because he was the only one who wasn’t involved in spying on the Trump campaign, spying on President Trump while in office, and attempting to undermine and overthrow a duly elected president.

They have disgraced their names, their families, and their country forever.

Shame on them all.

If there is any justice, they should all be brought to justice.

Thank you, Captain Obvious!

Yes…, Captain Obvious, aka FBI Director Christopher Wray, stated, while appearing at a House Homeland Security Committee hearing, that “Antifa is a real thing.”

Reeeeeally?!

You don’t say?!

Thank you, thank you, for this brilliant insight Captain Obvious!

Can you possibly share anything else the FBI has learned?

That the earth is round?

That Chicago is a dangerous place?

That you ought to be fired, just like your fellow deep state partners in crime, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, and Peter Strzok?

That everyone in the prior Obama administration, including former President Obama himself, are guilty of treason?

Please, tell us something we don’t know, Captain Obvious!

Please tell us something we don’t know!

Acording to By Ronn Blitzer of Fox News, “Wray’s words were in response to Rep. Debbie Lesko, R-Ariz., who claimed prominent Democrats have called Antifa a ‘fantasy.’”

Ha! “A fantasy?!”

More like a nightmare, I’d say.

“In July, Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., had dismissed the idea of Antifa violence in Portland as ‘a myth that’s being spread only in Washington, D.C.’”

These democrats are all such pathetic liars.

And they love to try and talk you out of believing what your eyes are actually seeing.

“We love you,” President Trump!

Edmund DeMarche of Fox News reports that, “President Trump’s speech during a rally on Thursday in Freeland, Mich., was briefly interrupted by supporters who chanted, ‘We love you,’ while the president was at the podium.”

https://twitter.com/i/status/1304206542242222081

“[President] Trump, who is famous for rarely showing emotion, could be seen taking a step back from the rostrum while he seems to collect himself. He tried to make light of the moment and pretended to wipe away tears over the crowd’s gesture.”

‘“Don’t say that,’ he said. ‘I’ll start to cry and that wouldn’t be good for my image. We don’t…, you don’t want to see me cry.’”

“[President] Trump told the crowd that a similar chant broke out during a recent stop in North Carolina.”

“His speech on Thursday took place outside an airport hangar and lasted about an hour and 15 minutes.”

I only share this report because this makes me so happy for President Trump.

With the daily abuse, the unbelievable abuse, this man takes from the lying, treasonous democrats, the treasonous deep state vermin, the snake in the grass RINOs, and the liberal propaganda fake news, it does my heart good to see these supporters express their true appreciation for his efforts on their behalf.

I believe this “recharging of his batteries” is just what the doctor ordered.

Hopefully these chants will become a staple at his rallies.

He deserves it.

I am amazed every day at what this man is willing to put up with, and still manage to do a great job.

He is a better man than I, I must admit…, and exactly the right person that America needs now and for four more years!

WINNING!
