How long before someone doesn't read the article and starts freaking out?



Rambo has already fashioned a feces-dipped punji pit at the gov's doorway.

ultraholland: fusillade762: What's a mib?

Exactly.


I know what it is, and I will tell you the whole conspiracy behin... Wait, hold on, I got to get the door. There's some washed out rapper and some old dude at the door wearing sunglasses saying that they want me to look at something. They're probably Jehovah's Witnesses, I'll be back in a minute after I shoo them away to tell you all the rest.

Little choked up, sorry.
First time someone has offered to treat us old vets as well as prisoners are treated.
Sniff.

R.A.Danny: Happy Hours: I guess my point was that if I were homeless right now I sure as hell wouldn't be in Colorado. I'd be in Arizona - or Texas - or Southern California.

You'd buy new shoes and walk?


I would definitely start walking. I probably wouldn't buy new shoes though.

If I started walking right now and even if nobody gave me a ride I could be in Denver tomorrow. I could be in New Mexico a day or 2 after that. A few more days and I might even reach civilization.

Damn it Smitty. I was about to get angry because I tend to like what Hickenlooper does and says and was going to be really sad if he was advocating something bad.

...But then I read TFA. And I continue to tend to like what Hickenlooper does and says.

Happy Hours: That is one of the lamest anecdotes I've ever read.


The lame part is that I am actually very bad at putting up my own tent. That is compounded by the fact that I'm very short. So, I bring along a step ladder to use while putting up my tent. Typically, every other tent has been up for some time, while I struggle with mine. I end up with 10 to 15 children standing around staring and looking bemused. I end up wondering "Why do they allow me along on these trips?"

This.

What's a mib?

It's used in SNMP. It's called a Management Information Block - it's a way to get (or send) information to/from a device like a router on it's stats, etc.


HA! Actually in this case it's a marble. The larger marbles in particular.

HotWingAgenda: And they didn't really explain how these hordes of hungry hungry hobos are supposed to get there.



Boxcars.

www.nowtheendbegins.com

Use regular trains to transport them to the rail yards.

Then they can change trains, so boxcars can carry them to their final destination.


/be sure and use REGULAR TRAINS ONLY for any photo-ops

Linkster: BarkingUnicorn: Linkster: BarkingUnicorn: The problem will be getting anyone in his right mind to go to Las Animas voluntarily. It is far out on the southeastern plains, the only incorporated town in its county. Horrific blizzards every winter. 1.3 sq. miles. Pop. 2400ish. Biggest claim to fame is the Kit Carson Museum.

Horrific blizzards every year? If SNOWS, it's windy. FUKING PUSSY!

Says the guy in Arizona. :-)

Says the guy (me) that grew up in western Kansas!


That's God's country, He doesn't let it snow there.

No worries, No hurries. We only have to hold our breaths a little longer, this recession will abate, then all of these dudes will have well-compensated production jobs. Have a little faith in the mercantile system!

Mimic_Octopus: Spartacus Outlaw: This sounds like an awful idea.Send them all to some broken-down, out-of-the-way human storage center. How very condescending and dismissive.

they are farking homeless, do you want to build them brand new penthouses with balconies and rooftop gardens in the middle of downtown like farking idiots in portland do, whil taxpayers and workers get priced out ? abandoned strip malls in the burbs is a better idea though.


The space is there, it's already partitioned, has cafeteria, recreation, housing and other facilities. It's set up to handle a transitional population; yet one that will be in place for extended periods. It's equipped to monitor that population and facilitate their training and movement back into society. And it has transportation access already in place for moving people and supplies in and out. Why NOT use it for housing the homeless?

The hard part won't get getting the homeless vets out there; it will be encouraging staff and other professionals to relocate out to BFE to provide services for them. Social workers are not going to want to live a thousand miles from nowhere to assist homeless vets, no matter how committed they are to the cause.
