Seriously, what else is there? In the 1930's the Feds had the WPA. Much good was built and it brought the goodness back in people, they had pride in themselves, sense of worth. The Feds pay out the free benefits and forget doesn't work whether it be here, in Brazil, Russia, Cuba or anywhere else. I am sure the ACLU would try to stop it but press on.

The Works Progress Administration (WPA) was an ambitious employment and infrastructure program created by President Roosevelt in 1935, during the bleakest years of the Great Depression. Over its eight years of existence, the WPA put roughly 8.5 million Americans to work.Jul 13, 201

So your example of democrat success is republican-run cities.

Like Flynt?

Not so fast.

The Democratic government of a Democratic city destroys that city’s finances so thoroughly that it must go into state receivership; a Democratic emergency manager signs off on a consensus plan to use a temporary water source; the municipal authorities in that Democratic city responsible for treating and monitoring drinking water fail to do their job; a state agency whose employees work under the tender attention of SEIU Local 517 fails to do its job overseeing the local authorities; Barack Obama’s EPA, having been informed about the issue, keeps mum.

Michigan was a 'red' state at the time of the 2016 elections, at that time with a Republican governor who was at the core of the issues relating to their water supply and the government inaction on the ensuing health crisis.

Your excuse isn't valid.

State governments work similarly to our federal government. Civics my friend, learn it.

A Republican governed city, in a Republican governed state, in a Republican governed country.

Yet Democrat = bad?

Face it, both sides of politics suck at some things, and ignore some things, and mismanage the rest.

Wrong again.

The Mayor was a Democrat. A lot of the people within the local government were Democrat.

Nobody really thinks race mixing is a bad thing in and of itself if that's your thing, what people are becoming increasingly sick of is being told how to think and how terrible you are if you don't conform. Thats the problem, and when anyone brings this little factoid to light, they're branded with whatever label they can throw on you to work on everyone keeping their head down and not complaining.

You cannot help people unless they want to help themselves.

Just giving them things doesn't actually fix the problem, and I don't want to foot the bill to just keep on housing them until they die because they won't/don't want to work on their problems.

Many have mental illnesses and addiction issues, and those are tough issues to crack. Simply housing them and shoveling money at them only enables them, and many could get into programs, especially the veterans, but they won't because they aren't willing to accept the rules and restrictions that come with those programs because ... interestingly, those programs only want to help the ones who want to be helped. Those programs usually have limited money and cannot simply house everyone who wants to continue down their dark path.

As a taxpayer, I'm not in it to subsidize them in their addictions and illnesses either, so until we allow them to be forcibly incarcerated in facilities where they will be kept clean and perhaps treated for their illnesses, I'm not into more and more social programs on my dime to simply give them clean places to continue self-medicating with alcohol and illegal drugs because it's easier than actually getting sober and facing the demons.

It sounds like you've never drank or smoked marijuana. It also sounds like you've never experienced depression.

Alcohol induced depression isn't the same as the psychological condition known as depression. Also, it usually wears off by morning. That's the whole point.

The main reason people abuse substances is because it gives them some measure of control over their own state of mind. Even if all you can do is get more depressed, at least it's a change to your state of mind, and you got to decide when and where it happened.

Trouble with weed is it just plain doesn't feel like anything. Doesn't offload any of the day's misery, let you complain it out. Just numbs it for a bit. It helps during the moment it is present.

A lot of these homeless aren't local people. They're from out of state and they come because its easier to be homeless in a state where the winters won't kill you.

In Portland, OR, and Seattle, WA, the winters CAN kill you.
