Farking haole.

But don't you see! All homeless people will themselves to be homeless! If they stopped being homeless for 30 days, a magical fairy comes down and gives them a job and that job will immediately pay for their house, food, water and electricity! It's not that hard, people!
 
2013-11-19 04:16:17 PM  
Point: Those carts aren't theirs in the first place, they probably belonged to some supermarket or big box store.
Counterpoint: State Rep. Tom Brower is destroying something that belongs to a private business.

Uh... didn't we do this this morning?

Bubbles was there and everythang.

FTA: lawmakers approved $100,000 over the next two years to offer one-way flights off the islands to any of the state's estimated 17,000 homeless persons.

If I was governor of another state, I'd call a press conference and announce that for each homeless person Hawaii paid to fly to my state, I would personally buy first-class one-way tickets to Honolulu for five homeless people from my state that were in the mood to relocate somewhere sunnier.

Actually I think it was on the Pol tab.

Apparently I went to the Pol tab this morning. WTF? That place smells like poop and fail.
 
2013-11-19 04:20:47 PM  
I'm expecting this to end badly. What goes around, comes around.
 
2013-11-19 04:20:51 PM  
Sounds like a total farking sociopath.

Have fun making miserable people's lives even more miserable, you complete waste of skin!

Hopefully he doesn't wind up getting the shiat beat out of him by someone who no longer has anything to lose.

/wait, no, actually that would be fine with me...

Perhaps Dawg can speak with him of the virtues of Christ?
 
2013-11-19 04:21:29 PM  
Abominable.   This guy has me hoping that there is a hell for him to spend eternity +1 in.
 
2013-11-19 04:21:42 PM  
Some hobos should break into his house and sleep on the couch, guest beds or floor.

Sure it's be just as wrong, but it'd actually do something to fix the homeless problem*.

*not including being shot for breaking and entering
 
2013-11-19 04:21:50 PM  
So can the stores to which those carts legally belong either sue this guy for destroying their property or have him charged with theft and vandalism?
 
2013-11-19 04:23:28 PM  
How many homeless guys in Hawaii are veterans.

Just asking this cart smashing doooosh.

I heard about this earlier today. I thought it was a satire article.

I think, if there is justice in the world, that this man will end up homeless for a time. I think that would be good for him.

What a dickless piece of sh*t! I look forward to this biting him in the ass.

Like your mom said the first time I talked to her, "Wow, what a giant dick!"

Did he start this after Thor hit Blue-Ray?  I'm guessing the 2 are somehow related.

Uncomfortable Fact: Rep is a democrat.

The article gives other uncomfortable facts:

* Hawaii has highest homeless rate
* Proposed solution by the state; offer one way tickets off island

When I went to Maui, a studio condo could be had for 1.25 million. I boggled at the idea that anyone could afford to live there. It made zero sense how the fast food workers could be anything but homeless.

Don't forget to kick their refrigerator boxes to pieces. The homeless will never cease to be a problem if they are allowed to improvise shelter for themselves.

It's like allowing bleeding hearts to feed the starving or provide medical care for the sick. You only get more of them if you give them any respite.

The only way to help people who can't help themselves is to deny them more help. Kick the crutches out from under them. Beat them senseless for getting hurt. Tough love is not tough enough unless the love is in homeopathic doses. Slow children will only catch up to the smart kids if you make them go slower. Revise! Revise! Revise!

Excuse me a moment while I talk to the sky. Hey, you! Get off of my cloud!

I got a feeling it won't be there come November.  He'll have to get a 2-nd tier letter.  Maybe even a number.

Because providing humanitarian help and treating them decently is only enabling their laziness, etc...

The homeless people sent to other states have to have family there or someone who will take them in. I think returning them home is a reasonable, even laudable thing to do

Stores that own baskarts can vote and donate to his campaign funds, duh.

Many homeless people suffer mental illness as well. The more you know.

Agreed. I think it is likely that hating the homeless is a cultural idea that is common in Hawaii. Them in Alaska are wildly different as compared to the 48.
 
2013-11-19 04:33:29 PM  
It's entirely possible that he brainstormed for hours and this was the best idea he came up with.

Where to homeless people get shopping carts? They steal them. Send the homeless to jail for theft. Homeless problem solved. Send this dickweed to jail for destroying stolen property. Dickweed problem solved.

If you were the governor of another state, you could sue Hawaii for this and win. States have successfully sued other states who have exported their homeless to them before. You can't stick your social problems on a bus and make someone else pay for them.

Is it OK if I hope he gets knifed and raped?  I might not be pro-hobo but purposely antagonizing them while smashing their stuff seems like a stupid and dick move.

Kind of like our old "bad cop" that decided to go after "punks" and skateboarders.  Ended up getting the shiat beat out of him along with getting his cruiser trashed.  The SOB would go around and take skateboards from kids he saw at or near the park.  Even after complaints from parents and kids came into the police.  He also had a habit of antagonizing people from his car.  That ended about as well as one can expect.  One night he must have found a victim who had some help, was drunk, a better fighter or town's people got tired of his shiat.  He got out of the car to fight a teen he claimed was threatening him and got mobbed.  He never gave a good description of what happened.  The cameras in these cars don't see the side of the car, so no video evidence and the video only captured a brick crushing the wind shield.    The officer was found later that night beaten up, the windows of his cruiser smashed and his gun taken.  Nobody ever came forward and the gun never turned up.  That police officer was eventually fired for some other BS, but I imagine they were waiting for any reason after that fight incident. I can only imagine what a pissed hobo might do to a non-police officer.

The moniker 'homeless' annoys me.  'Homeless' very strongly implies that if you took one out to the burbs and give them a 3 bedroom 2 bath the problem would be solved.

But I guess 'homeless' is easier to say/type than 'poor, mentally disturbed and/or chemically dependent'.

MFAWG: Who cares? He's an asshole


I care. The GOP may have zealous hatred of the poor as part of their party platform, but the DNP needs to eject this lunatic from their ranks immediately. The entire DNP should be condemning him right now.
