        when traveling to Los Angeles that used to frequently think this is a nice place even though it's atrociously expensive. I don't think that anymore at all. decay is everywhere and the ghetto has expanded to vast portions of what used to be a nice city.

        it will be a third world shythole in a decade no doubt probably. I'm already surprised how quickly the decline has happened.

          No LA is wonderful but unaffordable to many. So they live on the streets. Once we have affordable housing, then homelessness should decrease.

            What creates a homeless person grows from within that person's brain. Most want to be disconnected form social order. For the homeless mindset, real misery is connections to expectations, judgement, to scheduled time, etc. It is surely a faltered life. Still, can you be victim to the choices you re-choose and re-choose?

            Establish the very best filled popular "homeless shelter", you can make it unpopular by hanging up a list of "rules" = expectations. Order requires self-monitoring and the homeless reject that. I imagine, the solution to making homeless "camps" acceptable will involve an ordering that does not trespass on their variety of mindsets and upsets? Gotta experiment.

                People wind up homeless for an array of reasons. The chronically homeless tend to be mentally ill and/or drug addicts. And/or because a lot of mentally ill people self-medicate with street drugs. The mentally ill are out there in large part because the psychiatric community decided mainstreaming was better than institutionalization back in the 70’s. The media then blamed it on Reagan, which is one of the significant fake news narratives of that era. (Along with the collective muzzle on anyone suggesting AIDS had something to do with homosexuality.)

                There are also people who get stuck in it for a variety reasons. Those folks tend to respond to training & transition programs.

                But it is well worth noting: the most liberal regions of the country are also the richest, most expensive and have the highest income inequality. The bluest of the blue are the most hypocritical and deluded places.

                      Maybe they can try that idea Oregon I think had where the plan was to park mini trailer homes in residents yards for the homeless.

                      @avatara Affordable housing? Do you actually think those mongrels have jobs? Most (I would bet 95%) are wacked out drug addicts. They eat at churches and trash cans. They break into cars and steal. When they manage to get some money they buy dope or alchohol. Believe it or not, in order to get into affordable housing you have to qualify by earning a certain percentage of the median income. There are some free programs administered by cities and states like Section 8 but they still have to qualify. There are places they can shower and sleep at night but they won't go there because they have to listen to a sermon and can't get fukked up.

                        I love that one. Half your yard must be for mini homeless shelters.

                          Do you have rent control? Usually, if capitalists see a need, they see an opportunity.

                          Yes they do. And I have never met a mongrel. Does that mean somebody who is mixed race?

                          Is that what you call them? Is that because you are scared of us taking your women and that we have bigger penises? This sounds like envy to me. Do you have issues with interracial relationships?

                            pretty sure no one's afraid of you stealing their woman.

                            Im also pretty sure no one has more issues with interracial relationships than you. by the way how's that divorce coming?
