They have been out. At homeless meals in Bucks County, PA, at SEPTA’s Jefferson Station —everywhere– to register people to vote. There was a report recently from Philadelphia about the homeless voting. Advocates and politicians are making sure the homeless vote. http://www.fox29.com/news/211016034-story
In a recent report from a Philadelphia news station, a homeless person, I believe a druggie, expressed that he has a problem with Donald Trump. Like most anti Trumpets, he gave no reason why he doesn’t like The Donald. From the anti Trump camp, we mostly hear the usual clichés.
In the news story, a homeless veteran said that because of poor care, while waiting for services, veterans have died. The Veterans Health Administration comes under the executive branch of government.
In Dover, Delaware, there is a conflict between a church that has been allowing homeless people to stay on its property, and neighbors. “It has really nothing to do with being anti-homeless,” said Thomas Farrington, who lives near the church. Neighbors complained that the police often have to break up fights between homeless people and that the music and yelling gets loud. http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/local/Delaware-Dover-Church-Tiny-House-Neighbors-Controversy–392662151.html
Farrington said that he isn’t being anti-homeless, yet states “We are not talking about a mother and a couple of children who she lost her job. We’re talking about people that are chronically homeless. They can walk, they can talk, and they can carry a collection plate. But they can’t get a job?”
Although this neighbor may have a legitimate beef about the noise and fights coming from the homeless, he doesn’t understand the homeless. Just because someone is able to work doesn’t mean he/she can find a job. There is a lot of unemployment in our Obama Nation. If elected, presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will continue BO’s stinky policies, such as the war on coal, which will put people out of work and exacerbate homelessness.
I personally don’t know the homeless or the situation in Dover like I do in lower Bucks County, PA. What I do know is that there are homeless people here who work, but haven’t worked long enough or make enough money to get a place. I also know that, even if you have a little money, it’s tough to find a place in Bucks County.
In some cases, homeless people here in Bucks County create their own problems. In Queen Anne Park, in the woods on county land, there were complaints about druggies living in the woods. At least one of them in those woods had to be taken to the emergency room. There are other examples which I’ve written about on previous blogs.
In the case of the Dover church, if indeed the fighting and noise from the homeless is really happening, the pastor needs to make and enforce rules for the homeless who stay at the church property. Individuals who don’t follow the rules should be thrown out so they don’t ruin the privilege for everybody else, which is sometimes the case in Bucks County.
In Bucks County, concerned people have been taking measures to hold unruly individuals accountable for their behavior, particularly at the community meals for the homeless and those in need. This is only fair so the rest of the homeless don’t get a bad name and suffer. As is the title of a song by Eric Burdon And The Animals, “One Monkey Don’t Stop No Show”. https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=one+monkey+won%27t+stop+the+show+eric+burdon+and+the+animals&qpvt=one+monkey+won%27t+stop+the+show+eric+burdon+and+the+animals&FORM=VDRE
Just because a few A-holes in the homeless community act up, responsible, decent people in the homeless community should not be marginalized and should be given an opportunity for housing.
Awhile back, when I proposed a plan to Democrat Bucks County Commissioner Diane Marseglia to set aside county land for an official homeless community, she responded that this would jeopardize opportunities for the homeless to get county assisted housing. The public assisted housing takes one to two years. But of course, what does reality matter to someone living in an Ivory Tower?
Marseglia also championed mental health help for the homeless. This sediment has been put into action by the Bucks County Mental Health hustlers, who go here there and everywhere in an attempt to Shanghai the homeless and take their taxpayer funds to keep the county mental health industry in business. Alan Johnson, formerly with Penndel Mental Health Center, but still a county hustler, told me that he doesn’t believe in housing first. Instead, he said people need to get straightened out before they get housing. This presupposes that all homeless have such serious issues that they are not fit to move in anywhere until they avail themselves of the county mental health services. As comedian Pat Paulsen used to say, “BULL FEATHERS!”
Sensible people, including the more industrious members of the homeless community, know that Hillary Clinton or other Democrat, such as PA Representative Tina Davis, the Bimbo of Bucks County who says she has done a great deal for the homeless and will continue to do so, in reality does very little for them other than helping with tasks such as benefits.
Democrats get in the way. PA Governor “Big Bad” Tom Wolf banned drilling for resources on state lands. The Bimbo of Bucks County praised the wolf for saving the day, saving the environment. She admitted that current drilling on state lands fosters a good economy but said that protecting the environment trumps this. Maybe the bimbo and the wolf can pass out pink slips and eviction notices on Halloween.
Hillary Clinton, and the other Democrats, who are clones of one another, sit high above us on their Ivory Towers. Like the Democrats in Bucks County, they don’t care about serving the homeless or other regular people or even accommodate private efforts to help them (efforts to use abandoned buildings and land in Bucks County for the homeless are stonewalled). They mostly just know how to Demagogue and serve themselves and the special interests. They do, however, sometimes throw in facts, such as the ads that attack Pat Toomey for abridging the right for a woman to murder a baby. These ads prompt me not to vote for Pat’s opponent!
