When my family moved to North Hollywood, I was 11. We lived in a safe, clean suburb. Yes, Los Angeles had serious crime and homelessness problems, but those were problems relegated to pockets of the city -- problems that, with good governance, we thought could eventually be healed. Instead, the government allowed those problems to metastasize.

As of 2011, Los Angeles County counted less than 40,000 homeless; as of 2020, that number had skyrocketed to 66,000. Suburban areas have become the sites of homeless encampments.


How will he find another place to live if he's that myopic? Maybe he can follow the sound of racist dogwhistles?

Woo hoo! This is really turning out to be a week full of prospect and hope! Tax cheats exposed, deserving victims of life threatening disease and now, like my cat, California's gag reflex has puked out another disgusting thing.

Man, look at you libs, being all rude and uncivil, chomping at the bit to insult Ben Shapiro just because he's a terrible person. You're all just as bad as him, insulting him just because he's a bigot that's inspired a couple of mass shootings.

I'm so sick and tired of the people pointing to the homeless problem in California and using it as evidence that the state is failing. Other states are actually shipping their homeless here. Maybe California should get a stipend to take care of the homeless from other states.

Housing is a horrible problem across the country and - as you say - homeless are getting pushed to California. More and more people are moving to thriving cities, in contrast to the horrorshow of rural America, of terrible education, bigotry, lack of opportunity, drug abuse, and despair.

What policies does shiat weasel propose to solve that problem? Tax cuts for the rich? Removing social safety nets? Underfunding public services? Telling them to go somewhere else so he doesn't have to see them?

Leaving for a gated community that allows the purchases of homes by trust funds and shell corporations. It's really the only answer.

All I'm saying is that his suicide is a tragedy, and you wouldn't be cheering it on if your grandpa had killed millions of people and then blew his brains out because everybody bullied him over it.

Buggery and the lash go with rum and most of Kansas has antiquated liquor laws so good luck on getting anything stronger than beer on Sunday.

I agree, Ben.

To solve the homeless problem I propose the government kill the rich people, take all their stuff, and give it to the homeless.

The fantasy novel that conservatives have written about California is born completely out of jealousy. I'm sorry that most conservative strongholds are total shiat holes that nobody wants to live in, but that doesn't mean you have to spend your days worrying about California. Maybe try to convince the local coal baron that he can spend some time and money creating a job industry that doesn't revolve around a fuel source that hasn't been relevant since the dawn of the nuclear age.

I don't know.  Rich business owner complaining about CA.  Wanna bet things were much worse in the 1970s or 1980s in terms of violent crime?
Or that he played an active role in making housing unaffordable by placing health care profits over his community?
Or blocking affordable family housing over lucrative empty investment condo towers?
Or making higher education a major financial burden so he and his ilk could avoid paying their fair share of taxes?
Or helping to elect conservative Presidents and senators who created crisis and then spent many trillions to bail out their wealthy friends?
Well, he is free to move to rural Missouri or Arkansas.  I bet he could buy a big house there and create his conservative paradise.  Go ahead Ben.

"Police are forbidden in most cases from either moving transients or even moving their garbage. Nearly every public space in Los Angeles has become a repository for open waste, needles and trash.
The most beautiful areas of Los Angeles, from Santa Monica beach to my suburb, have become wrecks.
My children have personally witnessed drug use, public urination and public nudity."


Of course his concern is not that more people are suffering, it's that his view is being ruined by poor people and the mentally ill who can't afford treatment under GOP blockades to healthcare.

Compassionate conservatives!

If this piece of garbage decides to come to Florida like some of the rest in Cali and most from NY/NJ/CONN, he'll be in for a rude awakening.

All of these groups are heading here to escape the "liberal government policies" that have supposedly ruined their states. 

What they aren't realizing that by heading here en masse, they are creating the exact same problem they are trying to escape.

They are pushing housing prices through the roof. They are bringing their wing-nut politics here, voting them in, and ruining social programs that are in place to try and prevent the carnage they are instead bringing with them and instituting.

These plague rat, tax dodging pieces of shiat are locusts that are doing nothing but sucking up the resources in every place they escape to, only to carpetbag to another place once they have drained local resources dry.

Fark these pieces of garbage with the most rusty knife available. Seriously.

FARK THEM!!!

This is the time to remind everyone that Ben Shapiro never once tried to run for a single city or state office where he could have actually worked on making changes he so "desperately" wanted. Not that he would have ever won, but he never even tried.

Go soapbox somewhere else.
 
2020-10-03 5:34:33 PM
