I grew up in the bay area. Left at 18 years old and never looked back. This is not new, homeless people were everywhere in San Francisco in the 90's shitting in people's doorways and shooting heroin on the sidewalks.

Re: SOCAL RESIDENTS OUTRAGED AS HOMELESSNESS CRISIS CONTINUES TO CRIPPLE THEIR NEIGHBORHOODS
Like most social problems, it's not fair to say that every person living in a certain neighborhood deserves what happens. Even when people vote against liberal policies they aren't guaranteed to get conservative outcomes.

However, there comes a time when each individual has to access their current situation and make a change when it's obvious they don't share the same ideas with their neighbors, and when the politician and laws are continually against their beliefs

As a native California, I voted against crazy liberal policies, but somehow the craziness always won. When my husband and I realized we could not win living in California, we left.

Whenever we go back for a visit, it's shocking how quickly things are degenerating. Last summer was the ultimate beginning of the end from my perspective. Homeless people are everywhere and people just seem to accept it and step over them on the sidewalks and in the streets. A plague might be coming soon, something worse than the typhus outbreak downtown.

That's a good metaphor for what the sociopolitical left has done, and is doing, to America. They're created a Max Max dystopia, full of cunning, irrationality and inhumanity.

What pisses me off is that most of those liberals, particularly the Limousine Liberals and Champagne Socialists, will force everyone else to play a game of Thunderdome.

Re: SOCAL RESIDENTS OUTRAGED AS HOMELESSNESS CRISIS CONTINUES TO CRIPPLE THEIR NEIGHBORHOODS
I was in Santa Cruz a couple weeks ago two days after they razed the tent city by the highway, it was mayhem. You can disband the camps but the result might be entirely worse.

Someone had set off a bomb in the encampment as protest before the eviction, another young girl had died of an overdose the same week. There had been five deaths in a very short span and the city had no choice but to close what had become a menacing drug den of crime rape and derangement.

I felt very badly for the ones who were there out of pure need, not addiction spiraled to bottomless abyss.

In the course of twenty minutes or so I encountered many raging wasted angry evicted folks, I felt their pain and confusion, but was at a loss for how to intervene.

The first man was rather tall and began cursing and yelling at me while I was at a stoplight, I had no escape and had to endure until the light changed. He was very out of his tree, belligerent and proceeded to throw with great force a beer bottle at the bank adjacent to my car. I sped off with haste, however sad for his plight.

Went to the gas station not far from there rather shaken, where I pulled up to put gas in my car. There was a couple, older, wasted, with all of their cart of belongings clearly also evicted, on the sidewalk directly next to the pump.. As i went to get out of my car I observed her pull down
and use the street as her toilet. I just left without gas...

Further down the street a few blocks away I went to go to a shop where adjacent were a young filthy couple on the sidewalk next to the busy road, laying in piles of their meager belongings. She was very disheveled and seemingly high on something and ripping her log hair out from hr head babbling. I thought I had landed in hell, or just the hell of the Tenderloin in San Francisco had migrated an hour south.

This cannot go on. Santa Cruz was given 10 million recently to mitigate this issue and get these folks to rehabilitation and shelter. Would I, could I utilize those funds to help the token few here, thousands likely, I would use it a bit more wisely. Our elected officials are crap in most ways and the political climate needs to change and incorporate honest people who actually care and are not motivated by greed or power structures.

They are homeless, mentally ill, and/or drug addicts.

You can put them up into a mansion on Beverly Hills and one month or less later, they will turn the place into a dump and make a massive crack house into it.

Re: SOCAL RESIDENTS OUTRAGED AS HOMELESSNESS CRISIS CONTINUES TO CRIPPLE THEIR NEIGHBORHOODS
I wrote our mayor last night and asked him how he looks at himself in the mirror or sleeps at night having drivin by broken people on his streets who can't afford housing. I thanked him for revealing gis true nature and told him I planned to be there when the Lord comes back to avenge his sheep. I made sure he understood how I know he and other mayors are taking money from special interests to buold their own banks...that his elitist emerald city is nothing but garbage.

Thats all I CAN do. Too bad 50 other people didn't do it... Or just 25. Whatever.

First, you stop spreading disinfo about a subject you obviously know norhing about (except the same parroted b.s.)... Yes, some people are drug addicts. Some drug addicts have homes and work in big positions! Some do finally make it to the streets. However.. There are some fantastic, God loving people who are in an endless and hopeless situation who won't get help because assholes think they're addicted to drugs. Many work full time jobs and can't get housing.

Also, we used to have asylums for mentally ill people, all closed down, and prison or homelessness has been the substitute for them. Or PTSD riddled veterans, you would be surprised how many of these people have been made to kill for there country, only to shit on the sidewalk floating in alcohol and heroin to kill the inner pain the indure.

I live in Los Angeles. California definitely isn’t what it was in the 70’s.

The libtards here just lack basic logic and reasoning skills.

They are for illegal immigration but complain about the heavy traffic.

They are for sanctuary cities but complain about homelessness at their doorsteps.

They want the gov’t to fix everything but yet they don’t want to pay higher taxes.

It goes on and on.

Folks, you just can’t make this stuff up. California is the land of retards.

It’s still a nice place to live though if you are making over 400k a year.

I know Santa Cruz well, and the homeless problem there is absolutely NOT going to change because the city is filled with moronic, bleeding heart, liberal Democrats who will vote ONLY for other moronic, bleeding heart, liberal Democrats.

The ONLY choice for any non-homeless resident living there is to either stay in Hell or move out.

Re: SOCAL RESIDENTS OUTRAGED AS HOMELESSNESS CRISIS CONTINUES TO CRIPPLE THEIR NEIGHBORHOODS
The homelessness crisis impacts many people in Southern California, and some are addressing the problem head-on as they look for solutions.

Many say the issue is encroaching on where they live, both in their surrounding neighborhood and near their home. Some of those residents say they're tired of dealing with the crisis first hand.

Rick and Robin Marcelli live in a townhouse in Sherman Oaks. They say the homeless crisis has gotten worse over the last year and a half.

"We've walked over needles on this very street. We've walked over human feces on this very street. This is Sherman Oaks. But I'm beginning to call it 'Skid Oaks,'" Rick Marcelli said.

Some incidents include the time a transient reportedly stood outside their front door waving a metal wrench, and a separate incident in which a homeless man was caught taking a bath in their complex's Jacuzzi.

The thing is....

Unless you have worked social services here you kind of don’t see it.

There are services for everyone and everything here.

But, you have to follow the rules and no drugs, no alcohol, no prostitution, and take the psychological prescription drugs. They also have to follow through with ALL the training classes for hygiene, job interviews, taking care of your sleeping area, cleaning kitchens and toilets.

The ones on the street - do not want to follow the rules.

As far as the elderly homeless, they are the ones that get effed the worst.

Young ones, illegals, and anyone pregnant or with kids - yea the services are endless, they have to work the program.

The old folks, the single and disabled- totally screwed because those services for housing are completely taken by illegals since they all have kids and are pregnant.

I was working for UHaul this past Summer from home, and many calling in moving from California

They told me then that California was not the same, and that I never wanted to come back there.

They said there are homeless everywhere, human waste, clothes strung up to dry on strings, and complete craziness there

I had a friend there, who was always an independent hard working woman, and then suddenly for years now, she just decided she would do nothing with her life at all, but live out of her car and on the street with the homeless, who she says are her real friends. She will NOT do anything to change her situation, she seems very happy and content living like this.

Re: SOCAL RESIDENTS OUTRAGED AS HOMELESSNESS CRISIS CONTINUES TO CRIPPLE THEIR NEIGHBORHOODS
One does not need to be a bleeding heart liberal to realize that there is a problem.

"they" send men to war and then treat them like shit when they're no longer useful.
ordinary people chose to sign up

"they" sent our manufacturing jobs overseas and all but killed smaller farms.
too many people didn't care so long as t-shirts and jeans and housewares were cheaper

"they" allowed meglomart to kill Mom and Pops.
Too many people want the free parking and convenience and cheapness to shop mom and pop

"they" tax us to death and turned home production of everything from children's' lemonade stands + into a fiasco.
who votes for it? Someone does

"they" have plenty of money for war in distant lands with people who've never harmed us.
those distant lands have resources that enable the comfy Western life style

"they" built welfare states.
Again, someone had to vote for it

"they" brainwashed the majority into victim mentality losers so "they" could enrich their interests in big pharma by way of psychotropics.
lots of people prefer a pill to changing harmful habits

"they" dumbed down our education system.
Every parent who thought their kid is smarter than they are, or demanded an A when the kid deserved a C caused this

"they" made it possible to financially destroy entire families with with a medical issue.
no on stops you from saving up the funds just in case and again, all this is voted for

"they" took away just measures and weights in favor of usury.
don't rely on credit

"they" sold houses to everyone and many of those homes are now underwater. Prior to the 80's damn near everyone who wanted a house could get one AND pay for it.
who doesn't want to see their own house for as much as they can?

"they" flood our streets with drugs.
The individual makes the choice to take them; no one is forced to

"they" made and encouraged mom's to work rather than staying home to nurture their families.
women chose to work outside the home, lazy men were happy to be off the hook financially

"they" flooded the media with whores to destroy families.
Turn off the TV or don't own one

All of these things and more have contributed to homelessness. Now I am not saying that there aren't homeless people out there who don't have personal responsibility by any means but damn! there is a very real problem with people and an even bigger problem with peasants and their own pecking order.
