Conservative Residents in Coastal SoCal County Furious After Officials Vote to Spend $70 Million on Homeless and Create Homeless ‘Tent Cities’
[link to www.thegatewaypundit.com]



Conservative residents in Orange County, California, a wealthy enclave in Southern California just south of Los Angeles, are furious after supervisors voted to spend over $70 million on permanent housing for the homeless.
Even worse, homeless people may be temporarily housed in tents inside three Orange County cities including Laguna Niguel, Huntington Beach and Irvine.


The Orange County Register reports:

Supervisors voted Monday for Orange County to spend $70.5 million on permanent housing for the homeless, and to create temporary homeless camps in Irvine, and possibly in Huntington Beach and Laguna Niguel.

The vote comes a week after supervisors committed $20 million toward permanent housing for the homeless. The combined $90 million is likely the single largest appropriation ever committed by the county to fight homelessness, and signals a shift in the county’s strategy to solve the growing issue.

The decision came as supervisors admitted that they’ve failed to spend money that’s been available for homeless housing – tens of millions of dollars technically earmarked for mental health funding. Supervisors said they’d been misled by county staff as to what resources were available, though news reports for at least two years have pointed to the availability of up to $186 million.

A trebuchet would be much cheaper and a more permanent solution.

I was just in Irvine last week and commenting on how clean the city was and no homeless, unlike the cesspools growing in other CA cities.

Of course the government has to come along and ruin it.

IMO I think it is noble to help the less fortunate but those sort of gifts must be taken in grace and compensated for, not simply consumed as another handout

I find it interesting that they decide to house the homeless in cities with some of the priciest and most desirable real estate in the country.

So they're going to house bums who don't work, who drink and do drugs all day in these nice areas that regular people can't even afford to live, AND on the taxpayer's dime?!

Why not move them inland? I'll tell you why, because these people are entitled and think they can sleep anywhere they want and won't leave the beach areas they can't afford to live.

Maybe it is disheartening to look from that perspective but I don't believe people truly want to be succumbing to drugs and feeling hopeless like that. It is a tough problem for sure, if there was some way to bring hope to people like this, to rid the need of drugs and escapism, perhaps they would find the motivation in the gesture of being helped and put the newfound faith towards positive collective works. Just my 2c

I used to work with this population and went into the field idealistic like yourself but quickly realized the truth. Most homeless people simply won't help themselves. There are a ton of resources out there to help them but rarely do they want to change their lifestyle. Of course, there are always a few exceptions.

The homeless need to be herded and placed into FEMA camps, then be made into dog and cat food.

Just because they don't serve you personally doesn't make them worthless my friend. We are all just trying to get by and be happy. I wish you could try to see that side of things more clearly, perhaps it would save you a lot of energy and strife from trying to combat a nonexistent enemy.

wait -- there are Conservatives in California?!?!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 76380907


HQ of the John Birch Society and several right-wing org are/were in So Cal. San Diego County and Orange County ALWAYS had Republican Conservative Mayors and Council Members until the recent waves of immigration changed the composition of CA

Actually many of the right-wing org developed and spread as gangs and crime, along with very hard-working, church-going immigrant families, altered their cities' and school's population. Campus Crusade for Christ and other similar Christian groups formed Bible-study groups on or near high schools in an attempt to unify and alleviate the growing tension.Orange County around Disneyland was referred to as the Bible Belt of So Cal even in the 60's.
