TYPICAL WEST COAST MAYOR
History is great. When you’re faced with a perplexing problem that you just can’t figure out, you can look back in time and see if the problem existed before. If it did, you can easily find out how it was dealt with. Vagrancy is as old as the world. Everyone says prostitution is the worlds oldest profession, and I say being a bum is the world’s oldest non-profession. There were bums around when I was a kid, but they didn’t bed down on the city streets. When the sun set, they were either gone or in jail. If they were picked up and spent the night in jail, the local police transported them to the city limits and told them to keep on moving.
People are a lot closer to the animal world than you think. Some have already made the transition. Those folks that have made that transition are found on your local city streets laying in urine, feces, trash, and used drug paraphilia. I would venture to say that a lot of these folks started out life fairly normal. The way they descended into the trash heap of human waste is pretty obvious…..narcotics. Opioids and or alcohol.
A huge percentage of these folks are totally fixable. I would venture to say the number may be as high as 80%. But when your as far down as these folks are, you can’t do it by yourself. These people need qualified help, working within a well thought out plan, to rehabilitate them. The real reason this problem continues to grow and fester, is pretty damned obvious. Nobody cares!! It takes too much effort.
Cancer survivors almost always have the same story to tell. ” They discovered it in the early stages”. That’s how you fix any problem. You fix it when it’s still small. If you wait and let the problem grow, it will eventually become overwhelming. When that happens the only solutions become very severe and costly. Then the natural reaction is to ignore it and hope it goes away. That’s what the west coast mayors are doing in regards to street dwellers. Hoping the environment will become so toxic, they will simply all disappear, or all die off from some uncontrollable plague.
Let me tell you what these mental giants are up to in Portland and Seattle. The mayors and city councils of these once beautiful cities, recently came up with a brilliant idea . They are handing out trash bags to the street dwellers ( they’re not homeless ) and telling them to pick up their trash and bag it, for the refuse companies to pick up. These geniuses are using the police officers to hand out the bags, while the street dwellers are shoplifting from the local businesses and breaking into cars. Now, if you think the street dwellers are going to pick up their trash, you’re even dumber than the city officials. I’ll lay you ten to one odds that the bags are plastic. While they are handing out plastic bags to street dwellers, you can’t get a plastic straw in a restaurant or a plastic bag in a market. The street dwellers are urinating and defecating on the streets and the waste is ending up in the street drains. This is against every environmental law on the books. Meanwhile the guy running a company a few miles away, paying huge taxes, is being fined for improper rain water run off on a property that he is leasing.
Putting all of this in perspective, I can only assume that the only reason these people hold positions in city governments is that they are too stupid to work in the private sector. They lie to the voters, and feed them massive amounts of B.S. to win the election and the position. What we ultimately end up with, is a dog chasing a car, he finally caught it, and has no idea what to do with it. Unfortunately, I don’t see any end in sight in this epidemic of stupidity. Every day, they do stuff more bizarre than the day before. It’s damn depressing. Maybe they should ask China how they deal with street dwellers. I’m sure that would be interesting.
