California’s Supreme Dear Leader, Gavin Newsom, is leading the charge to procure hotels and motels to give to the bums and junkies that have flooded our state. These are the people who are coming from all over the USA demanding free stuff.
Many came in on buses known as the “Great Greyhound Movement”. Many states gladly chipped in for a $100 ticket to send their chronic problems to CA. And California soon wound up with half the nations most costly tramps and junkies.
It seems to me that the bleeding heart liberals of CA are only too happy to receive them too. This makes sense, since it’s really about money, your money, from the taxes you pay and the fat bureaucrats that get to choose how those billions are spent.
The homeless population industry has been a real pain in the wallet for hard working residents and small businesses. However, for democrats it’s a golden opportunity to increase their power and control. There’s big money to be made running a bureaucracy and great power to wield; this is a perfect fit for our liberals and we’re just weak enough to let them.
If our founding fathers could only see what these criminals are doing to their grand republic. This nation and especially CA has been entrusted to modern day Benedict Arnolds. What an insult to the founders.
Turning hotels into homeless shelters is not a new concept for leftists in the city of Sacramento. A homeless shelter with services is currently open in the Capitol Park Hotel, a single-room occupancy hotel downtown, where more than 100 homeless men and women are currently living. City Councilman Jeff Harris has previously proposed converting the Motel 6 on Alhambra Boulevard into a temporary homeless shelter by October. I’m sure San Francisco will be doing the same at the Mark Hopkins, Marriott and others. Question…who pays to resupply the little booze fridge found in each room?
Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg, who co-chairs Commissar-governor Newsom’s homelessness task force, said the occasion illustrated the importance of a statewide mandate to require cities meet aggressive goals to house the homeless or face court action. The task force is asking for the mandate to be placed on the November ballot.
“Everyone needs to be indoors,” Steinberg said with a straight face Sunday during a City Hall press conference. Paraphrasing Steinberg, “And if we can
use exploit this self made terrible crisis…. to actually take from the rich enough permanent supportive housing, soon to become trashed, we’ve won a great victory over the working people! We can fake the public into thinking we are reducing the homeless population, yet without expecting any rehabilitation…this is a dream come true for us! We’re hiding the problem and spending money by the billions-it doesn’t get any better than this!,” said Mayor Steinberg, more or less.
In addition, the state is sending 450 expensive new FEMA travel trailers to locations around the state to help shelter many of the 108,000 bums and junkies living in California, Newsom said.
We could also send them new Cadillacs too, but it will still not fix the problem. The problem is a burned out brain from drugs and alcohol and a million bad choices made over decades by people who were not to bright to start with. They should be institutionalized because they need 24 hour supervision to function, not a room at the Top of the Mark. For others we jokingly call homeless, well, they live outside the norm, beyond the rules and are there by their own choice. Sure, they will take whatever they’re given and spit in your face at the same time. Why do you think so many states gave them the boot and paid their way to migrate to California?
“Becoming a bureaucratic state is my top priority now. In fact, it ranks right up there with me getting elected as president some day. That shows you how important this is to me and my future!” said California governor Newsom, more or less. He announced these outrageous and idiotic measures along with the latest overblown figures on the spread of COVID-19 to scare people and get his way at a press conference today.
I wonder, what would be your choice, fight the plague of liberalism that is infecting America or wait a few more years and let the Chinese do it when they take the lead?
