Get Ready Folks, I have it on good authority that after a roughly 8-year absence the homeless have finally been found!
Just in time for the Mid-Terms, and filling that need for an issue to balkanize the voter base, The Homeless have been located in Los Angeles. Who Knew? (well… everyone… for three decades… which is why it’s a tired, clichéd, leftist election cycle play employed whenever they are out of power… but whatever.)
I’ve been informed there will be a fresh set of lawsuits filed in California with the purpose of demanding state authority to Force homeless people into state-run facilities. We used to call these sanitariums, but I’m confident there will be a new euphemism crafted… maybe something Japanese like “Happy Lucky You Homes!”
I would like to think that California’s Leftists are genuinely concerned about the homeless epidemic and are seeking solutions, but I’m too old and too jaded to believe it to be true. I suspect, based on well honed cynicism, the issue will simply be used to freshen the Homeless epidemic in California as ‘new’ and somehow the responsibility of the Republican led Federal Government… not California Leftists. Additionally, I suspect that trying to make this a Federal Issue is about siphoning Federal Taxpayer Dollars into California’s coffers to prop up decades of terrible Socialist Policy initiatives. (Always remember, Socialists are not about actually solving problems. Within the Socialist Governing Paradigm problems are to be used to secure money from Taxpayers and keep The Useful angry.)
It’s going to be an interesting year.
