    I'm finally beginning to see the liberal light. I now understand that this is what liberals want - non workers mooching off of the federal government, living in a generational cycle of poverty where they can't even afford housing of any kind. And, open the borders to more illegals so they can join the crowd. If liberals wanted to fix the problem they could fix it at the state level but they won't because this is the way they want it and then blame it on the feds and on Trump and the Republicans.

    What percentage go to CA because of the weather?

    CA also has the highest population of US states....

    I do reports and stuff for our American Legion and just did one on Veteranís Issues. It was tough stuff for them to hear. Besides the warfare, which is obviously a huge thing, I donít see a difference between between a homeless Vet and a homeless Civilian. Theyíre both homeless. How do we fix this?

    They take the same Meds; they have the same substance abuse problems; they have the same depression issues. Once we are successful transitioning homeless Vets back into Society, we can do the same for our homeless Civilians. Decommissioned Hospitals and Military Installations are a good start.
    You know what I love about you, Linc? At least half of the time I run into your posts, I see you proposing actual solutions to problems where everyone else is merely arguing over who's responsible for the problem in the first place.

    Thank you for taking the time to try and educate our sorry partisan asses.

    If you were homeless what state would you want to live in? You would want to live somewhere warm with lots of rich people for begging.

    Leftists are in the process of fashioning Kalifornia into a socialistic paradise. Can't you tell?

    This is what socialism is. You have the elites, and skid row. The middle class are fleeing the state, or being taxed into poverty.

    Just because they are in Cali doesn't mean Cali caused it. People who are homeless tend to go where it is warm. And near the ocean. Or where they think they can find work.

    You just threw them in jail for a while.

    Now that the middle class is being clear cut, and most of the lower middle class factory jobs have been disappearing, people who used to be able to just go get some "Joe Six Pack" factory job can't find work anymore, and the ranks of the homeless swelling to include a lot of minimum wage working people who compete at downtown "day labor" outfits to scrape by as well as they can. There isn't enough room in the jails anymore.

    But Rethuglicans lump them all in as bums anyway, just as they lump refugees in with border jumpers.
    Rethuglicans like simple sound bite explanations and simple sound bite solutions.

    More taxpayers would result in more services, more benefits.

    Like I said, it is information he has seen, but it conflicts with his troll-bait threads.
    Calgary ( a city of 1.2 million) has two large homeless shelters, that provide support and work with the homeless to try to get them off the streets. During cold snaps the city opens up some surplus buildings that then are used for emergency shelters.


    It is also using two former hotels as places for the homeless that are ready/able to transition from being homeless to becoming stable, and long term employable. One has been renovated into suites, that are rented out at low cost to the homeless who have jobs but still need assistance in the transition. In 2016 the homeless population in Calgary was around 3000, if one was to extrapolate that into a ratio with LA, it would probably be equal to 27 000.

    You should check to see what your house is made of before you start throwing rocks. California pays the most in Federal taxes, and your good state of Kentucky is the fourth neediest state in the country, receiving 40.9% of state revenue as Federal assistance.

    So have fun finding things to dump on California for, but that state is primary reason why your state is able to function.

    Oh, and Kentucky is 11th for most firearm-related deaths, while California is nearly at the bottom of the list at 42nd.

    The REAL REASON Trump is visiting California?
    He's trying to figure out how he can make things worse, so that, in his mind, they get bad enough that people will begin to believe explanations like Damn Yankee and Moderate Right (who are just copying Trump for the most part) and vote for him.

    His "solution" will resemble his solutions for Central America:

    Cut off more federal help and funding, make it worse, find a way to profit from it for his buddies.
