One Lawmaker Is Literally Smashing The Belongings Of The Homeless With A Sledgehammer

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

Sledgehammers by Shakespeare at en.wikipediaThere is a war on compassion in America today.  You are about to read about a Hawaii lawmaker that has used a sledgehammer to smash up at least 30 shopping carts that homeless people were using.  Yes, you read that correctly.  He is actually carrying a sledgehammer around so that he can destroy the belongings of homeless people.  He claims that it is his intention “to do something practical that will really clean up the streets”.  But as crazy as that sounds, the truth is that he is not alone.  As you will read about below, there are dozens of major cities all over the country where feeding the homeless has been banned.  In many of these instances, public officials are very open about the fact that the goal is to make their cities “cleaner” and “safer” places to live.  They simply do not want the homeless around.  In fact, there are some cities such as San Diego and San Francisco where social workers are actually giving homeless people one-way bus tickets out of town.  If you doubt this, just keep reading.  The United States is becoming a very cold, heartless place, and homeless people are increasingly being treated like human garbage in this country.  So how bad will the treatment of the homeless become when the economy gets really bad?

When I first heard about a state representative out in Hawaii that was using a sledgehammer to go after homeless people, I could hardly believe it.  But it is actually true.  The following is a short excerpt from an RT article that was published earlier this week…

In the past two weeks residents in Hawaii noticed what appeared to be a crazed individual carrying a sledgehammer through the streets of Honolulu, a state lawmaker looking to rid the city of homeless people by targeting their belongings.

State Representative Tom Brower (D) is currently dedicated to dealing out his own personal brand of “justice” by seeking out homeless people and destroying their possessions. Brower estimates that he has used the sledgehammer to smash at least 30 shopping carts, rendering them useless by bashing in the front wheels.

I got tired of telling people I’m trying to pass laws. I want to do something practical that will really clean up the streets,” he told Hawaii News Now. “I find abandoned junk, specifically shopping carts, and I remove them.”

How cold and heartless can one person possibly be?

The truth is that almost all of us are just a few bad breaks from being out on the street.

Hasn’t he ever needed a helping hand at some point in his life?

Unfortunately, government control freaks are cracking down on those that are trying to provide that “helping hand” all over the nation.  For example, one Christian ministry in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania has recently been threatened with jail time for feeding the homeless…

Every week for more than five years, staff and volunteers associated with Isaiah 61 Ministries have provided meals, toiletries, clothing and other forms of assistance to the homeless men and women of Harrisburg, as well as to the poor and elderly. Because of the recent threats made by the Dauphin County commission, Isaiah 61 Ministries and several other ministries engaged in similar religious exercises throughout the rest of the week have been unable to serve those most in need of help at this time of year.

And in a previous article I wrote about an organization called Love Wins Ministries that made national headlines when police in Raleigh, North Carolina threatened to arrest them if they continued to distribute sausage biscuits and coffee to homeless people living in the heart of the city.  The following is from a first-hand account from someone who actually witnessed the police threats

On the morning of Saturday, August, 24, Love Wins showed up at Moore Square at 9:00 a.m., just like we have done virtually every Saturday and Sunday for the last six years. We provide, without cost or obligation, hot coffee and a breakfast sandwich to anyone who wants one. We keep this promise to our community in cooperation with five different, large suburban churches that help us with manpower and funding.

On that morning three officers from Raleigh Police Department prevented us from doing our work, for the first time ever. An officer said, quite bluntly, that if we attempted to distribute food, we would be arrested.

Our partnering church brought 100 sausage biscuits and large amounts of coffee. We asked the officers for permission to disperse the biscuits to the over 70 people who had lined up, waiting to eat. They said no. I had to face those who were waiting and tell them that I could not feed them, or I would be arrested.

Sadly, these are not isolated incidents.  This kind of thing is happening all over the nation.

In fact, according to USA Today more than 50 other cities have passed laws against feeding the homeless…

Atlanta, Phoenix, San Diego, Los Angeles, Miami, Oklahoma City and more than 50 other cities have previously adopted some kind of anti-camping or anti-food-sharing laws, according to the National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty.

And as I mentioned at the top of this article, some major cities are so disgusted by the homeless that they are actually giving them one-way bus tickets to other cities

When her Greyhound bus pulled into town 6 months ago, Maria Castillo got off with two bags and dream.

“Start over, start a new life,” said the 42-year-old.

Castillo had been homeless in San Diego when a social worker offered her a one-way bus ticket to Portland.

“They said come here because all the opportunities in Portland, Oregon,” she said.

But Castillo said life isn’t much better in her new town. She’s still homeless. A Unit 8 investigation found several cities from San Diego to San Francisco are providing one-way bus tickets to the homeless.

When I saw that San Francisco was doing this, I just had to chuckle.  San Francisco holds itself out as a “progressive” city that is a “model” for the rest of the nation to follow, and yet they are so disgusted by homeless people that they are giving them one-way tickets up to Portland.

What in the world is happening to America?

And this crisis is only going to get even worse in the years ahead.  I write frequently about how the level of poverty in this country is growing very rapidly.  If you doubt this, please see my previous article entitled “29 Incredible Facts Which Prove That Poverty In America Is Absolutely Exploding“.

When people think of the homeless, they often think of drunk bums sleeping on benches in our public parks.  But the truth is that the ranks of the homeless include vast numbers of adults that would gladly work if they could, and the ranks of the homeless also include vast numbers of children.

Right now, there are 1.2 million public school students in America that are homeless.  That is a new all-time record, and that number has grown by 72 percent since the start of the last recession.

There are so many people out there that are deeply hurting right now, but the control freaks that are running things don’t want us to help our neighbors.

The control freaks that are running things just want the homeless to go away so that their cities can be shiny and clean and pleasant for visitors that actually have money.

Well, I don’t care what those control freaks say.  If I see someone that needs food or water, I am going to help that person out no matter what the “regulations” say.

And all of the cities that are banning feeding the homeless are literally cursing themselves.  As a society, we will be judged on how we treat our most vulnerable members, and right now America is failing badly in this regard on a whole host of fronts.

The United States is steadily becoming a very cold-hearted place.  Do not let that happen to you personally.  Please remember to do what you can to love your less fortunate neighbors this winter.

Our society is literally starting to come apart at the seams right in front of our eyes.

In this kind of an environment, we are going to need a whole lot more love and compassion than we are seeing right now.

      This prison planet executive order run down proves what I have been saying for four decades that this movement to take over America began a hundred years ago legislatively.

      It is so absurd to hear people blaming Obama for a hundred year old agenda. YES he has been more obvious than other presidents BUT if you check it, the Bush presidents blew up the world trade centers and caused Katrina and signed AGENDA 21.

      And every president has perpetuated the NWO in the US over the past hundred years with the exception of JFK and the government programmed Oswald to kill him and Ruby to kill Oswald. Check out the executive orders passed to create the NWO on prison planet.

      • Gene Baugh BBA

        Bush did not cause a hurricane. That is about as absurd as saying Obama caused a depression.

  • K

    For judgment is without mercy to one who has shown no mercy. That is all I have to say, about the ones who treat the homeless this way.

    The purpose of Centralized Govt based on keynesian economics is to first make you reliant on the system for basic necessities. Then thru it’s central banks it makes you poorer and it gets compounded with more rules and laws that transfers wealth from its citizens to the wealthy.

    Once you are longer useful to their system they cast you aside. The same will happen with Obamacare. How progressives encourage policy makers for more of the same while robbing citizens of their wealth and dignity just makes me shake my head?

    • ism

      Centralized government with Keynesian politics will restore universal national welfare abolished by Bill Clinton and provide universal public housing and free healthcare. So there will be no homeless. And will be money available for local business services.

      Obama Centralized government printing 85 billion dollars a month to provide for big hedge funds , investment banks and police state

    If you don’t have morals or religious convictions, then what difference does it make. Why be charitable when there is no heaven or hell. Would you expect anything other than this from most of our city dwellers and politicians? San Francisco discarded morals long ago.

    • jeebus

      I’m not religous. I don’t believe in heaven or hell. You don’t need to subscribe to some book to have compassion for people.

    • Guest

      You choose to be charitable because it is part of being decent, caring human being. You give to the less fortunate out of the kindness of your heart, not to gain some reward later down the road. Otherwise, it’s just another act of selfishness.

      Ummm. I am a Democrat (D) and I don’t like what those A–holes are doing to the homeless and poor. They don’t reflect my thinking on how the poor should be treated. I endorse charitable agencies helping, unhindered, the poor and homeless. I think a radical Republican is more behind this scenario then any Democrat, just to appease some big business or corporations taste for seeing the nicer things of life, rather than reality.

        Conservatives give to charities at a rate of 4x as much as liberals do–look it up, this is an easily verifiable fact. ( even if you count every penny of giving that libs do for PETA, greenpeace, world wildlife fund, americans for anarchy, communist organizations and the dozens of environmental and crooked ASPCA type groups.)
        Obama claimed $200 in charitable giving during his entire time as a US Senator…actually quite typical…

            So much rage! Christ said if you do something to the least of these you do it to Him. You never know when you “entertain angels unawares”

          • FounderChurch

            I want the police to force, at gun point if need be, every Liberal to take into their homes at least one, and perhaps more, homeless trash criminals,

            It would be perfect justice. And if they refused to take them in the Liberals go to jail and have their homes confiscated and given to the so-called “Poor” that they love so much.

            Overnight you would see all these hypocrite liberals changing their whole viewpoint and shuting their traps about their favorite toy, THE SO-CALLED POOR.

            We need to make all the Liberal Demon Rats swap places with their beloved “Poor.”

            Take the Liberal’s job and give it to an unemployed person, and their car also. That should shut their traps in a hurry.

            Strip Democrats of everything they have and give it all to the “Poor.” What wonderful Godly justice that would be. I pray for it everyday. Thank you Jesus for teaching me to understand that pearl of wisdom.

            Maybe it will teach these God hating Democrats a thing or two. Amen!

          • James

            I am one of those Liberals. However, I don’t just agree with every liberal ideology. I have a brain that I use to discern right form wrong. If the hammer smashing idiot is a Liberal, I don’t condone what he is doing. I don’t condone the following: abortion, war making in the name of global domination, I support unions, I support the right to have guns, I don’t support giving the Elite and corporations the right to control everything economically, I don’t consider corporations as entities with the right to vote as a person, I support prayers in schools, I support leaving the phrase, “Under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance. In other words, I am a patriot and support my country whole heartedly.

          • FounderChurch

            You may not be a liberal all the way, BUT just from what you have said, you need to understand that Unions are one of the serious things wrong with this country. They are in violation of the anti-trust laws, and harm our economy in all kinds of ways. I don’t blame you for supporting YOUR union if it gets you things, but the principle of Unions is not in the National Interest or societies interest. Now, as to the bums stolen shopping carts, you are wrong and the guy busting them up is right. So you are kind of a confused person, partly on one side and partly on the other. I would suggest you study a lot and make up your mind which side you are really on. Being in the middle is not a safe or wise place to be. It makes you look very bad to both sides. Sorry, but you are paying me to tell you the truth, and I have no interest in doing anything else. Read my writings and posts and Google “FounderChurch” for 5000 hits all of my writings. I have some hope for you. I want to work with others to save this country before we have no country, which is happening very fast.

            You sound like a typical baptist quack who is drowning in MSM kool aid. Unions have an important role in the private sector. Why shouldn’t group of labors with specialized skills be able to organize and withhold their labor?

          • FounderChurch

            You are clearly either very ignorant or a concious liar, take your pick. It is YOU woho hold MSM views not I.

            Aside from your disgusting religious hate and bigotry, you are totally lying about what Unions actually do.

            They don’t just withhold their labor, they violate a bunch of anti trust laws, force people to join unions and force them to pay dues. Not to speak of their violence, corruption & thuggery.

            They damage the economy, cost jobs, chase jobs overseas, & push the nation toward communism and dictatorship. You are disgusting & un American.

          • FounderChurch

            First, you ARE a Liberal but want to hide it so you can do even more damage to the nation by pretending to be a moderate or Independent or Progressive or non political. Who do you think you are kidding?

            Second, if I ever were “out there” my law would require you or one of your Liberal buddies to take me into your homes and take care of me.

            Third, I don’t condone your attitude either.

            Forth, no one has ever won an argument with me and for good reason. I am never wrong. If God is for me, who can be against me?

        James: the homeless are mentally ill or on drugs. Some need to be jailed while others need to be in a mental facility/group home where they can live, eat, sleep and work in various blue collar unskilled jobs stocking shelves, laundry, kitchen work, janitorial, etc. There are several larger homes withing a 50 mi radius of my house. I take used clothing to one near me.

        • James

          I think you are a heartless person. Not all of the homeless and poor are mentally ill or on drugs. Most of them are women and children. I agree that some need to be put in some kind of helpful institution, not jail. But, remember, you have to pay more taxes to keep them there. I applaud the fact that you take clothes to them. Is that all you do? Do you volunteer your time to actually go in and help, and get to know these people personally? Do you invite some of these people to your home for a meal? Do you give money to the institutions to help support their programs? Any body can give a pile of rags to a charity and think that is all they have to do.

          • laura m.

            James you sound ignorant and shallow. I said the ones in group homes do unskilled work, and the work clothing I take is also donated by friends. These handicapped folks cannot leave their residence except with family. So instead of running others down on this blog who don’t totally agree with you, start your own blog. Homeless women w/kids can apply for low rent housing, other assistance until they can get a job. Taxpayers spt these homes, stupid. People in the city donate food to local shelters. Why don’t you get a life and do something other than complaining.

    Last 2 weeks ago after i finished my janitor work at Pacific Medical Center and went to chinatown to take train to home and i saw a homeless very hungry man begged me for money to buy eat and i was bit mad at him because I need money to pay ticket to take train and my dollar was too wet from my work so i decided to give it him after realized i have enough money to get ticket anyway and he thanked me and i gave him a cold face. So it was pretty rude of me to him but at least he got single dollar to buy foods anyway and last night i met a guy looked like not homeless at all and begged me for 2 dollars to buy foods and i was confused and may i shouldn’t to give money to like him…Because sometime people can be fake act like homeless just to get money that is steal money so that why I don’t like to give money to anyone who begging for money to buy foods and drink but I still have good heart will still give to anyone that need for foods and drink. Also reason why I don’t want to give money to anyone that begging for foods and drink because I’m nearly poverty line person live with my mom that desperately to save money for bills and foods/drink.

          One day can’t put that perspective into anyone’s head. A week, and you will begin to understand. Two weeks, you will think you know. A month, and you stop believing in human compassion. A year, you may stop believing in God. Homelessness is at an all time high in this country. Many middle class families are only a paycheck or two away from it. How many times have you allowed your eyes to slide away from someone who looks homeless, or like they might ask you for a handout? Just remember, these folks didn’t start out life looking to become the problem no one wants to deal with. Most chronically homeless are mentally ill, usually not enough to need hospitalization, but enough to keep them from holding down a life. Drug and alcohol abuse are present much of the time, as the mentally ill tend to self-medicate. But more often these days people who wouldn’t ordinarily fit the homeless profile are living in their cars, couch surfing from friend to friend, staying with family and friends who are willing to put them up part of the time.

    I know you have to do puff pieces like these for guys like Gary but I don’t understand how these people slip through the cracks when a record 47 million are on food stamps and we’re spending more on poverty relief measures such as welfare than ever before.

    I agree that it’s heartless to bring in the police and threaten to arrest people for helping the homeless.

    I grew up in San Diego and the homeless there are bums who honestly believe somebody else owes them a free ride so they can get high, eat munchies while scoping honey’s down by the beach. I feel about as sorry for California bums as I do for stepping on a cockroach.

    The fact is we have conditioned a whole generation to believe that it’s ok to be lazy and play video games while living on their somebody else’s dime and there’s going to be hell to pay for it as a country when the nation’s bills come due.

      You are absolutely right. Someone sane at last posting on this thread. Stick by your guns. The same people who gave us the Fascist Communist Welfare State also are giving us the equivalent, by falsely quoting the Bible and appealing to Conservative Christian instincts. Can’t we see we are being manipulated and used by Liberals INSIDE our Churches, who in the guise of Christian Charity are into financing Satan’s army that he is using against us and against Christ?

    Talk about messed up !

    Gov. Chris Christie said Monday that he’s all in on allowing
    states to approve sports gambling, which could bring generate
    hundreds of millions of dollars in new revenue for his state.

    That’s the answer too our problems more Gambling ? He also wants more casinos .

    Meanwhile !

    J.C. Penney’s say’s

    Theft hasn’t helped the turnaround
    Shrink, which includes supplier fraud and paperwork errors along with theft, cost retailers $34.5 billion in sales,
    or 1.41% of industrywide business, in 2011, according to trade group
    National Retail Federation. It’s so bad, the industry gathers annually
    for “loss prevention” conferences to discuss how to combat it. An NRF survey found that 93.5% of retailers claimed to be victims of organized retail crime over the past year.

    The problem is not the homeless. It is the desperate people willing to commit crimes amongst the homeless. We have a homeless shelter in the downtown area where I worked. My old truck was broken into at least 3 times in a year because I parked near that shelter. The silly thing is there was nothing in the truck to steal. Other people I worked with had similar problems.

    So let us tell the entire story. Not just the story that makes these people look bad. They honestly do not know what to do with this group of people and I think they are scared of them.
    The jerk destroying people’s shopping carts could be charged if just one of those people went over to the local police station and presented charges. But that may or may not work in a court system based on affluence.
    We made a policy of not giving money to professional beggars. Yes there are people out there making a living posing as homeless people. That is the other side of the coin.
    I guess everyone at the Salvation Army will have to be arrested. They take care of a great number of people with their programs. Especially at Thanksgiving and Christmas time, the Army does a lot to help people in need.
    Since the Army has a lot of people that are now well off that once needed them and continue to support them, I guess these people will have to arrest the rich along with the poor.
    Maybe if this jerk is elected we can unelect him from office. Perhaps the rest of his crew might need a job as well. But that is wishful thinking.

      ”The jerk destroying people’s shopping carts could be charged if just one of those people went over to the local police station and presented charges. But that may or may not work in a court system based on affluence.”
      Won’t deny he’s a jerk, but how many ‘homeless’ are named Wal*Mart (or other store chain)? I thought not. That’s why they don’t go to the cops – that shopping cart belongs to the ‘homeless’ pushing it around just as much as it does to ”The jerk”.
      So what are the cops going to do? Bust the ‘homeless’ for theft of the shopping cart or bust ”the jerk” for vandalism (of the store chain’s property)? Not so easy is it?
      Actually spend some time with the ‘homeless’ for a change. As in several hours, as in actually talk to them – you might learn something.

  • Sandbagger

    Quoting: “…and San Francisco where social workers are actually giving homeless people one-way bus tickets out of town.”

    Wow. Really? So, “The City” (I’m a former native of CA), who declared they were a “sanctuary” for the so-called “gay”, are kicking out those who are truly an underdog? How metropolitan of them. They can feel superior for their lives as they partake of their Thanksgiving meal.

    I say to those who receive tickets…come to rural America, downtrodden masses! If you are willing to work, are drug-free and decent, there are those here who will not turn backs on you.

    • FounderChurch

      None of them are “willing to work” or “drug free” nor are any of them “decent.” If they were any of these things they wouldn’t be “homeless” to start with. And people who help them are worse than they are. These so-called “homeless” are human rats that go about polluting this country and spreading disease. Christians are so full of guilt fresh from killing their own babies that they pander to these street criminals to try to assuage their burning consciences.

        founderchurch: Most if not all, are drug addicts/drunks and spread diseases like TB, HIV, etc. Most need to be institutionalized as they have mental illness/retardation. Otherwise they’d be drawing disability and living in low rent housing or in group homes for the handicapped. When the mental hosp. shut down many in the 70’s 80’s this problem came about. The old time hobos hopping trains were another story, most worked odd jobs and traveled the country. Instead of spt other countries crap, we need to bld mental facilities again. The old ones were falling down and had to be razed.

    One way to stop the “Elites” from trying to stop the charitable acts is to move outside of their jurisdiction. Find places just across the city/county lines where the poor and homeless can go. You probably won’t be subject to laws prohibiting feeding, providing shelter, medical care, Etc. In fact, if you move to more rural areas, you may find more christianlike, charitable people willing to help. There is no written law that says you have to locate in the center of town or county. Rural areas have more room where charitable organizations may be able to buy land to grow their food. This all has to be coordianted by local churches, food pantries, and other agencies that are already providing food and help.

  • Marc

    They are purposefully do all they can do to make the world as bad as possible until the antichrist appears, then the secret power behind him will just stop doing all these bad things and will instead transform back the earth into a manmade paradise to be acclaimed as god and deceive all people that are not true born-again Christians, while the true Christians will be beheaded with the accalamation of all people for resisting to that satanic kingdom and trying to expose the true…
    In fact, by publishing now the outrageous acts of these people and complaining, we help them achieve what they want us to do: to spread to all people how bad the world is now, in contrast to how wonderfull it will appear when the kingdom of deception will come. It’s for this reason that we are allowed – and they hope that – that we expose all their crimes and complain about them in the internet. If they wanted to hide their crime, we would already all be banned exposing them over the web…

    • Marc

      For this reason, I am no more surprised or shocked when I read all these bad news. I know what they are planning. Very soon a “man” will appear, do great false miracles and the world will be changed into a paradise. Then instead of smashing the belongings of the homeless, they will give them houses and lot of money. Do somebody understand now what is happening and how near to the endtime we are?

  • George

    I would not be surprised if the homeless will be the first class of people to populate the FEMA camps, as few would miss them. There probably would be a lot of support to inter them, too, just like Japanese-Americans were interred in camps during WWII. And when the homeless go to these camps and never come back, people will think ‘great, problem solved, must be they got a job or something.’ Only the real reason they never come back will be far too sinister to ever be investigated. Arbeit macht frei.

  • El Pollo de Oro

    As The Banana Republic of America becomes more and more of a Third World cesspool, this type of cruelty will become increasingly common. Overt displays of cruelty against the most downtrodden members of society are designed to create a climate of desperation and make the slaves as submissive as possible. But in Third World hellholes, the oppressed don’t always roll over, play dead and lick the boot of the ruling class. Sometimes, they collect the dreaded Desperate People Doing Desperate Things Tax (DPDDTT), and they can be downright vicious about it. Just ask any Honduran CEO who found himself bound and gagged in the trunk of a car when the DPDDTT thugs paid off his bodyguards with the help of some crooked cops.

    A very wise and learned individual from the Boogie Down Bronx is fond of saying, “When the money stops flowing down to the man on the street, the blood begins to flow in the streets” (il suo nome é Gerald Celente). Yes, indeed. And the blood will look like a red tsunami in this Third World horror movie.

    To State Representative Tom Brower, you have been warned of oppressing the poor. Thus say the LORD: Whoso mocketh the poor reproacheth his Maker: and he that is glad at calamities shall not be unpunished

    For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, saith the LORD; I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him. He judged the cause of the poor and needy; then it was well with him: was not this to know me? saith the LORD.

    All my bones shall say, LORD, who is like unto thee, which deliverest the poor from him that is too strong for him, yea, the poor and the needy from him that spoileth him?

    He shall judge the poor of the people, he shall save the children of the needy, and shall break in pieces the oppressor ( Representative Tom Brower )

    For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper.

    Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor, he also shall cry himself, but shall not be heard.

    He that oppresseth the poor to increase his riches, and he that giveth to the rich, shall surely come to want. He that giveth unto the poor shall not lack: but he that hideth his eyes shall have many a curse.

    Hath oppressed the poor and needy, hath spoiled by violence, hath not restored the pledge, and hath lifted up his eyes to the idols, hath committed abomination.

They didn’t believe anybody (including God) really cared about them. I just pity these people, and nobody seems to like them. I just give them a couple dollars when I see them. I used to give them $5, but I don’t have much money now days. I never ask what they need it for. I just give them the money, and say, “Bless you”.

    A program aired a few months ago that highlighted the number of homeless here is getting worse. There are people who have a roof over their head but have nothing. There are many charities that offer meals & a cup of tea/coffee to those in need. There is also an annual event where CEO’s of companies sleep rough on the streets to raise funds for the homeless. This story shows a lack of empathy for those less fortunate. What happened to humanity.

    RAPED Social Security for the war on Poverty to obtain the Black Democrat vote (why Blacks vote Dem is beyond understanding)

    Usually democrats are handing out voter registrations to the homeless. Generally it’s the GOP who is killing the poor with their legislation. Cutting food stamps at Thanksgiving, cutting unemployment benefits at Christmas and ending childcare programs for poor working families.

  • grumpyhillbilly

    Reading the comments has been rather enlightening. I get why tax paying businesses don’t want homeless outside their doors. It follows that cities are being pressured to do something about the problem. What gets me is the progressives policies have caused the homeless situation thru closing of public mental institutions, breaking down the family units, and money policies.

    Reading the posts here I kinda get the inkling that some of you would actually favor a final solution for the homeless. Guys, and gals, you reading this blog. If the time comes when the gov start rounding up people to be never seen or heard again, we’re all likely on the list. How about we deal with the homeless problem by re-opening some mental institutions with farm ground, cutting taxes and regulations, deflating the prices of the professional classes, auditing the fed, and most importantly bring back the family.

  • YIH

    The ‘noble poor’ crap again. When Limbaugh was new and building his radio empire he was on a Ron Reagan’s talk show. He said to Ron Jr. and the assembled group ”You want to help the homeless? Bring ’em into your homes!”. All the group did was stammer and shout epithets at him.
    That was telling, it put paid to the reality that they (and many reading this now) would NOT ”bring ’em into your homes”. Most of the ‘homeless’ have serious mental issues, drug/alcohol problems, or violence/sexual misbehavior problems – DO YOU want to pick up a random ‘homeless’ and trust him around your kid? Are YOU really sure about that?
    The reason many are ‘homeless’ is THEIR FAMILIES kicked them out and don’t want them to return for the reasons stated above.
    Where else do they go? Often full jails? Shelters? Women and children first in those (and if drunk/high/barred for violence/sexual issues they won’t be allowed in).
    I’ve worked with them, many are ‘homeless’ for good reason and to put it bluntly most of those are not ‘fixable’ in any way. Reality is harsh.

    In Portland Or, where I live, the homeless constructed a little village near the city made of boxes, tarps, etc. they called it Dignity Village. It had a mayor, its own laws (no drugs, no alcohol, laws against theft, etc), its own security, highly organized. The city of Portland demolished it, but they relocated and rebuilt a little further out where it remains today. I went there one time and interviewed residents for a local magazine. I asked what they needed (money, food, blankets…). All they wanted was food for their pets so i went to Costco and bought big bags of dog and cat food. The people had many interesting stories of how they ended up there. Some were vets, others had mental illnesses, others were former drugs addicts… They were all very nice and hospitable people.

  • FounderChurch

    The idea that those among us who are substantially dysfunctional should be hospitalized at taxpayers expense is a hold over from the do-gooder ideals of the 19th century.

    What happened was Democrats, who basically had control of this vast system, naturally began to wrongfully exploit it, in order to provide high paying jobs for themselves, and to begin using this mental health system to incarcerate people for their political views.

    As a result, there was a reaction against this Democrat exploitation of these people and the hard working taxpayers, and by a sort of consensus all these expensive institutions were closed down and the inmates were freed and paroled to care facilities and their families etc. That is where we are now with all this. .

    Clearly this hasn’t worked out to well either, because bad management of everything is becoming endemic to this sick and decaying society, mostly caused by Democrat hatred of everyone, everything, and their visceral hatred of every single race and religion including their own.

    These Leftist middle and upper class parasites are the real cancerous spoilers in our society and the world and are the enemy of the lower classes. They are composed of the most severely anti-social elements among us, especially where they are centered among the wealthy and affluent. Ones like the Kennedy family and George Soros.types are typical.

    The whole society needs to be rebuilt, and the world along with it. We no longer have a sustainable human civilization on planet earth, and whoever sent us here needs to come back and take us in hand, and/or kill us, and redo the whole thing. Now, whether that is Jesus returning or a superior intergalactic force occupying us, or a combination of the two, it needs to happen and happen soon.

    Mean time we need no knuckled headed charity freaks, fresh from killing their own children with Birth Control and “Family PLanning” among us butting in and making things much worse.

    Our problem is our, sick unto death, ruling class of which the worst of the worst are the Democrat elitists and their Republican Christian wannabes.

    NOTE: Realize that all these so-called “poor” get a thousand dollars a month from the government in cash, and the day they get it they sign the back of the check over to their local drug dealer that covers them for drugs for the next month. Plus the get absolute totally free medical care paid for by the government also. Then they beg and steal to feed and house themselves the rest of the month, till the next check comes in.

    Be advised that this is a system set up by Democrats in the name of Charity, designed to destroy these pathetic creatures, and destroy the nation and the world at the same time.

    I think this article is pandering to emotions by manipulating facts. what the aritcle does not cover is how judges have empowered the homeless to such an extent that it shuts down businesses because customers are chased off. The fact of the matter is most homeless we see with shopping karts have profound addiction of mental issues. They cannot stay in a shelter because shelters have rules of behavior which they will not follow. Those out of work but dont have addiction problems can usually find the resources they need. The most eggregious statistic is that 1.2 million children are homeless. How is that being measured since I have never seen a kid pushing a shopping cart. Are they just living at Grandma’s house? For those who can remember the 1980’s a big deal was made of the homeless problem with advocates claiming there were millions of them and it was all Reagons fault. When Reagon wanted to count them the homeless advocates cried foul and it was never done. About 20 years later the homeless advocates admitted they inflated the number by 100 just to get more funding.

    It’s not only the homeless that get treated horribly but this type of cold and heartless behavior is happening to people who rent apartments or own homes. When a neighbor hears that you may be on UE, SD, SS or SNAP, it ignites a panic in them as they feel they may be next. You represent something they would rather not have to deal with and will try to make your life miserable until you move. The sledge hammer incident is about fear and not understanding what is happening in this country today. Many who have not experienced job loss in the last 5 years or loss of income and have remained virtually untouched by the economic decline are out of touch and not dealing with reality. When they are faced with homeless people, or even people who have lost a job, it instills fear, anger and rage because they are afraid it will happen to them.

      Total BS. These Spongers on Society have a criminal mindset and sit up nights practicing all kinds of outlandish lies about their “innocence” not a word of which is true.

      This whining letter is Sooooo typical. And meantime silly gullible, and sometimes knowing, so-called Christians are taken for a ride, or even willfully believe these packs of lies.

      The ones who are not bums themselves are so eaten up with induced guilt that they support these leeches, and enable them at every turn to rob the rest of us through taxes taken from us at the point of a gun.

      We need to really attack hard these bum and scum enablers, and accomplices to robbery. Jesus would not rob us at the point of a gun and give our money to druggies, drunks, and criminals.

      We are being violently and criminally robbed by these phony Christians at the point of the government’s gun that these phony Christians and phony bum lovers are complicit in getting pointed at us. .

  • GoneWithTheWind

    Sometimes I think that people’s common sense leaves them when they talk about the homeless. They are with few exceptions drug and alcohol addicts. Feeding them or giving them money enables them to continue their addiction. You are an enabler. Give them nothing. Have the police round them up, fingerprint them to determine if they are wanted and if not offer them a choice; a ride out of town or jail followed by a ride out of town.

    Some tribalists and Obamabots are surprised that Tom Brower is a Democrap instead of a Republi-kkkon, which is sort of like hearing about a drive-by shooting and being surprised that the offender was a Crip instead of a Blood or a Gambino instead of a Bonano. Remember: the Democrap wing of the War Party has expanded the Patriot Act and the police state, bailed out corrupt banksters with our tax dollars, excused the criminality of Jon “The Don” Corzine (as Gerald Celente calls him), and forced us to buy a crappy, overpriced, defective product from health insurance cartels whether we like it or not. In The Banana Republic of America, The War Party will slit our throats regardless of whether it is the Crip wing or the Blood wing. Both wings will fully support mass slaughter in the FEMA camps.

    I always wonder in these circumstances how the cops agree to run these patrols. I just can’t picture that morning meeting.

    All the towns outlawing homelessness have serious crime problems and then one morning the chief comes in and says

    “Today we arrest the church volunteers who are feeding the homeless. You know, the ones who have been doing it for decades? AND by all means, don’t let them feed the hungry people standing in line to eat. Arrest them if they try—these people are a real threat to our city as are their actions.”

    Does anyone buy into that and what if you refused to arrest church volunteers who are feeding the homeless? Is there not one cop in America who thinks this is absurd and who will refuse to do something so insane??

    We have become a cold and cruel nation and deserve much of what the NWO has in store for us unfortunately. We were handed one of the most beautiful corners of the world and we have allowed our politicians to destroy it all over the past one hundred years and most Americans are clueless they have deeded the nation over to a satanical regime forever.

    America is a compassionate nation, as long as you make at least $100,000 a year. Of course, if you earn that much, you are very unlikely to need financial or other assistance (this assumes you are not a Las Vegas high roller).
    The under-100K crowd – well, we’re on our own.
    Some of us have hammers too, you know. We used to use them for constructing houses and nailing stuff, back when we had construction jobs. But now they’re rather useless.

    • FreeThinker

      Every job that leaves the USA and every job that does not pay a living wage causes poverty and homelessness.

  • Lord Glenn

    I find it disturbing that religious ministries are being prevented from charitably feeding the poor and homeless… My advice to the homeless is to smash out the window of a bank or jewelery store, and wait for the cops to show up… at least in jail they’ll receive 3 squares a day plus a heated place to sleep… As for this Tom Brower character… just a sad example of a detestable human being wasting time (and taxpayers cash) destroying shopping carts… someone ought to call the rubber truck on him…

  • Tony R.

    If you sleep with dogs, you wake up with fleas.

    When I was a kid, many of the so-called “homeless” were called by the proper term, “bums”. California has become a magnet for “bums” due to its liberal policies of feeding them and handing out welfare bennies, something that’s been going on for 30 years. Eventually, you’d think municipalities would tired of the filth, crime and degeneracy that such policies have brought to their communities.

    • ConcernedAmerican

      “…Unwilling to conform to the norms of civilization.”

      So, if someone is different, they deserve to be homeless? What is “normal,” and whom among us is so wise, and superior, that they should set the bar for “normal?”

      A lot of things are “social norms” nowadays. Does that mean people should do whatever is “normal” even if it violates their own beliefs and morals? If they don’t conform, then they deserve to be homeless, hungry, and poor?

      Many “different” people with “anti-social tendencies” have been the brightest people among us. Read about the personality traits of many with high IQs. Choosing books over people might be see as “anti-social tendencies.”

      For those that follow Christianity, wasn’t Jesus “different?” Did Jesus fit in with “social norms?” Also, didn’t God make all human beings? If humans are supposed to “conform to the norms of civilization” I wonder why Jesus didn’t? Furthermore, if all humans were meant to be “cookie cutter,” then why didn’t God just make us all the same in the first place so that we could all fit in?

      • Tony R.

        “Norms of civilization” include bathing once in a while, not stealing or squatting on others’ property, not vandalizing others’ property, not urinating and defecating in doorways of houses and businesses — you know, all the things your mother taught you, but bums don’t particularly care about. If you consider such behavior “normal” and “acceptable”, then you must be a bum, and you would feel right at home on the streets of San Francisco.

  • eg

    it seems to me, the constitution protects the propertyof the homeless. also, those shopping carts are defacto property of a business. SO: your Hawaii lawmaker is committing crime. if no one in the community will choose to stand up to his criminal action, we can hope he finds that one homeless person with the meansto defend his meager property.

  • wandakate

    And JESUS will say to them, “When I was hungry you took me in, and when I was thirsty you gave me drink, and when I was naked you clothed me”. The one who did this to people in need are the ones who will call “Heaven” their home. The ones that don’t care will not! And that’s the “TRUTH”.

    Roads Disgrace USA by FounderChurch
    American roads have become a national shame and disgrace. We throw Trillions of dollars down Rat Holes at home, and all over the world, while our roads and infrastructure generally descends into the toilet.
    I-95, the lifeline of the nation has become just about dysfunctional.
    The condition of our rotting and collapsing roads, bridges and other public utlities which includes our electric, gas pipeline, rail, and waterway, grids is a national shame and disgrace.
    The fault lays with those fake maudlin sob-sisters among ourselves who profess to love everyone and every country on earth, while hating America, which supposedly is their own country.
    Sadly some of these phony charity pimps are slobbering agape so-called Christians, along with ALL Democrats, Communists, Socialists, and assorted criminals.
    There are thousands of companies, so-called non-profits, and governmental departments at all levels, who profiteer off of destroying this country. They all need to be prosecuted criminally and given life sentences at hard labor.
    Every single time an American worker is held up in traffic, due to insufficient and inadequate roads, a family is damaged, the economy is hurt, Job creation is stymied, and our national security is impacted.
    Let’s clean our own house before telling other nations how to clean their house

    What is the basis in law for preventing citizens to do what they want with their belongings? What would the charges for feeding the homeless be? I think these are very important questions that regrettably weren’t covered by the article.
