Frankfurt This is so rich! President Trump and the gang that can’t shoot straight in their supreme arrogance are now shoo-shooing about the White House thinking that it might be a good idea if they fix homelessness in large American cities. Wow! What is the saying, “pride cometh before the fall?”
Is this the same guy who didn’t de-nuke North Korea exactly, but at least he made a friend, huh? Heck he was in Asia and dropped by at the price of a couple of million so they could walk, hold hands, and marvel at the DMZ. Did anything come of that? Hmmm? No.
Is this the guy who just invited the Taliban to pop over for some R&R at his Camp David retreat outside Washington? Maybe they will talk peace? Maybe they’ll eat peas? Whoops! They killed an American solider in a random bombing, like they have been doing for the last umpteen twenty years. There goes their invitation to dinner. There go the peace talks.
Reportedly he sent a crack team to California to suss out the situation. His yahoo lawyer-press spokesman, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who certainly knows something about failing to solve homelessness is egging him on. Somehow, they think there is political hay to be made here. How did that work for you in New York, Rudy? Not so well really. The Times says Rudy wants a carrot-and-stick approach. What does that even possibly mean? Maybe they can eat the carrots and make a cooking fire with the sticks? At least that has some value.
In their weird calculations, these are liberal cities and middle-class and other folks are disturbed by homelessness, so let’s stir the pot. Los Angeles passed initiatives to spend hundreds of millions in shelters and other responses. Are they willing to come up with that many carrots?
According to the Times:
An estimated 59,000 homeless people live in Los Angeles County, according to a count conducted this year by the county, about a 12 percent increase over 2018. Of those, an estimated 44,000, or 75 percent, were unsheltered. Within the city of Los Angeles, which is distinct from the county, there were 36,000 homeless, including 27,000 who were unsheltered, according to that same count.
Actually, this might be something that Trump and his team DO know something about. They are specializing at leaving families “unsheltered” and in horrid conditions and virtual prison camps including children on the border. Maybe his plan for the homeless will be like that disaster, and he’ll move money from the military and FEMA budget to try to solve it.
It just gets better:
The administration has discussed refurbishing homeless facilities or building new ones, The Washington Post reported. An administration official said that while those ideas have been discussed, nothing has been settled.
They’ve got time on their hands, now that they couldn’t buy Greenland. They have money to burn now that debt is going past one-trillion dollars.
This is what happens when the address of the White House is no longer Pennsylvania Avenue, but Crazy-ville!
