Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, September 12, 2019

California is home to some of the world's toughest environmental and public health laws, but skyrocketing homelessness has created an environmental and public health disaster. The 44,000 people living, eating, and defecating on the streets of L.A. have brought rats and medieval diseases including typhus. Garbage is everywhere. Experts fear the return of cholera and leprosy. And homelessness is making people violent. "We are seeing behaviors from our guests that I've never seen in 33 years," said Bales. "They are so bizarre and different that I don't even feel right describing the behaviors. It's extreme violence of an extreme sexual nature. I have been doing this for 33 years and never seen anything like it."

Interesting statement by Bales, 33 years, he's implying BushSr as President, when Homlessness first reared is head, then under Clinton disappeared, under Bush reappeared, Obama disappeared, under Trump reappears. Only now its called out for what it is ... and it is getting worse, and Liberal policies are to blame.

Yea. But the narrative is California is bad.

Because Democrats.

So ignore the rest of America.

Just focus on California.

Percentages VS raw numbers ... per 10,000 only 5 in MS, vs 33 in CA ... thanks for playing

Again, proving my point that homelessness only comes out when a Republican is President.

If Fat Andy Mattress's dad would kick him out of the basement, you might be able to give 6 homeless folks a new home. That would make FAM homeless (who cares) but it would be a net positive of 5 people finding a home. A win-win.

We are talking about increases. Of course California will have the most homeless. It's not insanely hot in most areas and doesn't get insanely cold. It has huge metropolitan areas close together. They offer the most social services. And housing is expensive when so many people are living on top of each other.

If California didn't have these things, the homeless would scatter to other states or be able to afford housing.

That said, we are talking about the CAUSE of the increase in homelessness. That's literally what your article is talking about.

You just want to ignore that the increase is bigger in other Red states and pretend its liberalism that's the problem.

California has just past state-wide rent control. That ought to increase the supply of housing. lol

"The law would bar landlords from pursuing eviction against tenants without a reason the government deems acceptable and simultaneously restrict annual rent increases to 5% plus inflation."

The government will decide what's an acceptable reason to evict a tenant. Yeah, I'm sure people will want to provide more rental housing with the benevolent Moonbeamers micromanaging their property.

From 2016 to 2017 homelessness in Califora grew 16%.

Fun with stat ranges.

Texas does some goofy stuff, but California is #1 in poverty thanks to its intentionally anti-growth housing policies. Other places with growth like that don't have those pricing issues.

"The Democrats have a supermajority. What went wrong?"

Reverse the sentences and there you have it.

How many former homeless people live in your basement? 6? What happens when you kick worthless son out of your house? Does he become homeless?

You really have trouble thinking things through before you open your pie hole.
