Rats, Public Defecation And Open Drug Use: Our Major Western Cities Are Becoming Uninhabitable Hellholes

Do you LOVE America?


    This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at End of the American Dream

    Almost everyone that goes out to visit one of our major cities on the west coast has a similar reaction. Those that must live among the escalating decay are often numb to it, but most of those that are just in town for a visit are absolutely shocked by all of the trash, human defecation, crime and public drug use that they encounter. Once upon a time, our beautiful western cities were the envy of the rest of the world, but now they serve as shining examples of America’s accelerating decline. The worst parts of our major western cities literally look like post-apocalyptic wastelands, and the hordes of zombified homeless people that live in those areas are too drugged-out to care. The ironic thing is that these cities are not poor. In fact, San Francisco and Seattle are among the wealthiest cities in the entire nation. So if things are falling apart this dramatically now, how bad will things get when economic conditions really start to deteriorate?

    Let’s start our discussion by looking at the rat epidemic in Los Angeles. Thanks to extremely poor public sanitation, rats are breeding like mad, and at this point they have even conquered Los Angeles City Hall

    Officials at Los Angeles’ City Hall are considering ripping all of the building’s carpets up, as rats and fleas are said to be running riot in its halls.

    A motion was filed by Council President Herb Wesson on Wednesday to enact the much needed makeover amid a typhus outbreak in the downtown area.

    Wesson said a city employee had contracted the deadly bacterial disease at work, and now he’s urging officials to investigate the ‘scope’ of the long-running pest problem at the council building.

    People from all over the world are drawn to Los Angeles because of what they have seen on television, but it is truly a filthy, filthy place. The number of homeless has been rising about 20 percent a year, public drug use is seemingly everywhere, and there are mountains of trash all over the place. Needless to say, rats thrive in such an environment, and the epic battle that one L.A. journalist is having with rats was recently featured in the L.A. Times

    Eastside, Westside, north and south, they’re everywhere. If you’re a rat, the California housing crisis has not hit you yet and it never will.

    At our house, it sounded like the rats were having relay races in the ceiling, and they don’t wear sneakers. Your eyes blink and your leg twitches as you drift off to sleep knowing that if the plague comes back, you are living at ground zero.

    In our garden, they devoured entire heads of lettuce. They destroyed my squash just before it was ripe and ready to eat. They stole my tomatoes, cilantro and Anaheim chili peppers. Were they bottling their own salsa?

    But let’s not be too hard on Los Angeles, because the same things that are going on there are happening in major cities all over the western portion of the country.

    For example, a massive rat infestation recently forced authorities to close a shockingly filthy homeless encampment under a bridge in Salem, Oregon

    Amid the trash, human despair and anguish, one weeping woman prepared to leave the most recent place she knows as home without any real inkling of where she’ll go next.

    Terry Balow, an outreach worker with the Salvation Army, has been here for the darker moments of living life under a bridge — anger, mental illness, drug use and human frustration boiling over at times everywhere one looks.

    Yet it was a rat infestation and concern about human health that prompted the city of Salem to move the campers out.

    “It just grew and grew and got worse,” Balow said. “It’s badder than people can imagine.”

    Yes, there have always been homeless encampments in this country, but in modern times we have never faced anything on the scale that we are facing now.

    More than half a million Americans are homeless right now, and that number continues to grow.  And as it grows, communities will increasingly be forced to make some tough decisions.

    I am quite eager to talk about San Francisco, but before we get to the City by the Bay, let’s take note of something that just happened in Denver.

    If you are into public defecation, you will be very happy to learn that Denver just made it legal

    First, the obvious: The Denver City Council has voted unanimously to decriminalize a number of offenses, including defecating in public. Also, urinating in public. Camping on public or private land without permission. Panhandling. And lying across public rights-of-way, such as sidewalks.

    Democrat Mayor Michael Hancock and city officials explained the new ordinances are designed to protect immigrants — legal and the other kind — from “unintended consequences.” These consequences were fines and longer jail terms, as has been customary in most places for violating the behavioral norms of civilized American society.

    If only America’s founders could see us now.

    They would be so proud.

    Speaking of public defecation, San Francisco has become world famous for the piles of human poop that constantly litter their streets. During one seven day stretch last summer, a total of 16,000 official complaints were submitted to the city about human feces.

    Blessed with such beautiful natural surroundings and so much wealth, San Francisco should be a great place to visit, but that definitely is not the case.

    When reporter John Stossel recently visited San Francisco, he was stunned by what he found

    San Francisco is a pretty good place to “hang out with a sign.” People are rarely arrested for vagrancy, aggressive panhandling or going to the bathroom in front of people’s homes. In 2015, there were 60,491 complaints to police, but only 125 people were arrested.

    Public drug use is generally ignored. One woman told us, “It’s nasty seeing people shoot up — right in front of you. Police don’t do anything about it! They’ll get somebody for drinking a beer but walk right past people using needles.”

    In San Francisco they actually give out free syringes to drug addicts, and it is being reported that they handed out a total of 5.8 million free syringes in 2018.

    That is a lot of syringes.

    They also try to get the syringes back in order to prevent the spread of disease, but that hasn’t been too successful

    There’s just one problem – well, more than one – despite spending an extra $1.8 million last year in an effort to retrieve needles, the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the department handed out about 2 million more syringes than it got back… many of which are now washing around the streets of one of the richest cities in America (along with the feces of their users).

    And with so much public drug use going on, it should be no surprise that crime is completely and totally out of control.  Here is more from John Stossel

    Each day in San Francisco, an average of 85 cars are broken into.

    “Inside Edition” ran a test to see how long stereo equipment would last in a parked car. Their test car was quickly broken into. Then the camera crew discovered that their own car had been busted into as well.

    It has been said that “as goes California, so goes the country”, and if this is where the rest of the nation is headed then we are in serious trouble.

    When Bill Blain recently visited San Francisco, he was so horrified by what he encountered that he felt he must write about it

    I hope my American hosts will forgive me for raising this, but the squalor we saw in The City was frightful. San Francisco has always been one of favourite US cities, but the degree of homelessness, mental illness and drug abuse we saw on this trip was truly shocking. Walking round SF on a Sunday Morning and we saw sights we couldn’t believe. This must be one of the richest cities in the world – home to 4 of the 10 richest people on the planet according to Wiki. I asked friends about it, and they shrugged it off.. “The City has always attracted the homeless because of the mild weather,”.. “It’s a drug thing”.. “its too difficult”… “you get used to it..”

    Well, I didn’t.

    I found it quite shocking the number of folk sleeping rough on the sidewalks, the smell of weed and drug impedimenta everywhere, the filth, mental illness and degradation on view just a few meters from the financial centre driving Silicon Valley. It’s a city where the destitute seem to have become invisible to the Uber hailing elites. We found ourselves hopping on one of the beautiful F-Route Trolley Buses to find nearly every seat occupied by someone lugging around their worldly possessions around in a plastic bag. It was desperately sad.

    San Francisco has a new mayor, and they are going to spend millions upon millions of dollars to try to clean up the streets.

    But it won’t be easy to turn things around, because more drug users and homeless people are moving into the city every single day

    And San Francisco is generous. It offers street people food stamps, free shelter, train tickets and $70 a month in cash.

    “They’re always offering resources,” one man dressed as Santa told us. “San Francisco’s just a good place to hang out.”

    So, every week, new people arrive.

    We like to think that we are setting a positive example to the rest of the world, but the truth is that they are laughing at us.

    America is in an advanced state of decay, and it is getting worse with each passing year.

    If we keep doing the same things we will keep getting the same results, and right now there are no signs that the overall direction of this nation will change any time soon.

      1. Folks, anyone with 2 brain cells can see what is going on and what these vile, horrible excuses for human beings namely the demonRATS are doing to our cities and our States. My God, the U.S. is literally looking like 3 rd world hellhole!! WTF is wrong with this picture? When is enough actually enough? I can absolutely guarantee you nothing will change and nothing will be done about these disgraceful conditions and situations while any worthless, unhinged leftist scumbag is in office – you can bet your life on that one junior. We need a massive PURGE, yes I said purge as there is literally no other possible way to even attempt to make things right. I am shocked and horrified at what this place has become….We are quickly becoming the laughing stock of the entire World people. . .Again, when is enough, enough??

        • What makes you think you have the right to decide whom is purged?
          What makes you more valuable, material things ?

          Once that door is opened, you will be in that line too.
          You are not in the 1% club and never will be.

          • gB

            Posters like Hey-Jude stopped me from posting for a while. Mass murder of people that they consider as less than human is somehow justified?

            • Gb and Kevin2….go fuck your selves you pussles sniveling cock suckers. Go suck your evil masters dick.

          • gB – what the hell is the matter with you…you have to be a leftist turd…build a wall around SanFran…let the leftist who wanna live like that in but don’t let them loose to ruin any where else…

            Contain the diseased leftist and keep them away from the law abiding mainstream of society…

            That works just as well for ‘purging’ the sick and twisted from societal norms.

            • Definition of ‘Purge’ for those who seem to think the worst or just don’t know better….

              “Purge rhymes with urge, and when you have a really strong urge to throw stuff away or clean something out, you have an urge to purge. From the Latin purgare, meaning “purify,” purge is used as a verb for removing impure things, whether they’re guilty feelings in a person or rotten vegetables in a refrigerator.”

              • OR – rotten politicians !!!

          • Hey-Jude is 100% correct. Liberal cesspool trash needs to go.

            • Neegan, The reason it all keeps going on and getting worse is because of people like Kevin and other “go along to get along” nimrods that are afraid to do anything except make more excuses and talk quasi intellectual nonsense. Greatly misguided fools willingly accepting your own destruction out of fear and bogus thinking to allow it all to continue with zero recompense.

              You all need to read the Mahabharata to find any truth of the matter and when to fight back legitimately ! Your apathy and bogus reasoning only make it all far worse. In just the Obama regime decade, the entire I-5 corridor has turned into a shit hole from Mexico to Canada because of all the excuses and lack of action to thwart the DEM/DSA criminals that deliberately import illegals for the votes and undermine all laws related to drugs and human decency !

              BY doing nothing and making excuses it defines that chaos will take place as well as violence to correct any of it. It is the only natural outcome now. Not out of choice, but total necessity and personal security called self defense.

              This go along to get long thinking has been very destructive for far too long !


          • People with agency are in the 1% club.

            If they are anti-social, they will throw people under the bus.

            (Tubal Cain in Aronofksy’s Noah movie.)

            That’s one kind of survivalism — not to be given status, but to take status for oneself.

            In most belief systems, hubris is a sin. I’m talking about hubris.

          • “If you love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.” ― Samuel Adams

        • I agree , this purge needs to start in these third world countries before these human wastes cross our borders . These immigrants are absolute filth , they bring disease, crime and drain our social systems .

        • I agree , this purge needs to start in these third world countries before these human wastes cross our borders . These immigrants are absolute filth , they bring disease, crime and drain our social systems . I totally agree with you

        • Western Civilization has been destroyed from within, by design. White people refuse to comprehend that they are the ultimate target to be annihilated. Better to be nice, not offend anyone while they are killing your people, turning your life into a neurotic wreck, and your civilization into a depraved land-fill.

          Oh well.

          • JustMe, all valid points, as well supposed Christianity has been a very negative factor in the apathy and cooperation to undermine our society. Many churches get paid today to move illegals all around the country and get them setup up with freebies and voting instructions, housing and medical care they did not have prior !

        • Hey_Jude – you FIRST! BYE.

      2. These cities have caused their own down fall: high taxes on people and business, too many welfare programs, borrow money to pay for stuff not needed, high pay for government people, and a list too long.

      3. You reap what you sow. Leftist liberal/socialist policies are never sustaining.

        • Welcome to California!
          All the above in article.
          As a bonus. You are locked up for anything and everything. More laws, rules, regulations, than anyone can live by. Only criminals allowed guns.
          You are taxed into oblivian. Politicians want EVERYTHING you earn.
          Home prices are insane. Taxes insane.
          Traffic is beyond comprehension. Always jammed.
          And OTM gangs and MS 13 rule many areas. Very Dangerous.
          LA basin is shit hole of dregs and drug heads.

          No sane person would stay there.
          Pelosi is fine example of Californian.

          • The morons in SF and LA always find money to spend on other things but don’t have money to spend on cleaning up their cities. Par for the course for them.

          • Sadly, Liberal Californians are fleeing their failed cities/state and heading to rural states.
            Once in their new city/home state, they desperately try and re-create the disastrous laws, taxes and living conditions that made them flee California in the first place.

            Our rural state is being invaded by Californians.
            Home prices and rents are skyrocketing (as is our formerly low crime rate), traffic is increasing, and our once beautiful, scenic and safe small towns, are being transformed into the crime laden ghettos that these Liberals left behind them in California.

            What is truly maddening is that these Leftists are shielded by their wealth and will never suffer the consequences of their actions.
            They live in gated communities or on large parcels of FENCED and protected land.
            They will never use public transportation; they will never struggle with rising mortgages or rent increases; they will never have to struggle to pay doctor bills or put food on the table, and they will never be turned away from doctors, clinics or hospitals because these institutions are overcrowded, overwhelmed and too busy serving the undesirables that they fought to bring in.

            These Leftists will ALWAYS be protected and shielded from the criminals, the drug addicts, the gangs, the illegal aliens and the violent, all while telling us that WE must be more “inclusive” and compassionate.

      4. We brought this all on ourselves by not taking responsibilities.

        As far as our officials who spend more time in the political arena, and corruption when this all falls, and it will, we need to put them right in the middle of it, and let them fight for survival.

      5. The insane leftists and their sanctuary cities, needle exchanges, and openly allowing the homeless to congregate are NOT helping all three groups.

        I don’t know why they are so MISMANAGING these and on purpose creating humanitarian crises.

        You will end up with not on typhus, but XDR TB, cholera, typhoid, hepatitis, every kind of STD, etc down there besides the normal Norovirus and dyssentary plus skin and respiratory infections.

        It is created an INCUBATOR for contagion.

        They haven’t a lick of common sense. You put legal citizens in campgrounds with clean water access and seasoned firewood and toilet facilities. But when druggies move in, then you have THEFT, drug sales, prostitution, and burglary rings. It makes no sense to have them side by side. All that does is BREED CRIME and spread drug use.

        Sanctuary cities are ILLEGAL and we need to eject them including the use of deadly force. Otherwise hordes more will arrive and endless waste of unbudgeted tax dollars. It will be never ending.

        You want to help Mexico and Central America? Then help them form stable republican governments not facilitating narco-terrorists. They need to have a civil war if necessary not flood the USA. We already have ten percent of the Mexican population in the USA.

        • To get re-elected of course.

          Haven’t you figured out yet that they’re making an army of perpetually dependent pawns that they can sacrifice whenever the need arises?

          Plus “something must be done ™” and “it’s not our fault… we’re the only ones that care about the humanitarian crisis… Republicans just want to kill the poor…”

          (Nevermind they created the humanitarian crisis so that they could trot out this straw-man argument every few years.)

          They like us like this.

          If they had their way we’d all be like this.

          Who’s the real asshole in this picture?

          (I’m recently being reminded of how many times in life I’ve been bullshitted. The BS-o-meter is warming back up again and it’s now ringing like a radiation detector in Fukushima).

          • Californian have got to recall their politicians!ALL of their WEALTH aquired while in office needs to be remanded to state treasury to pay for the mess they’ve made OR WALL CALIFORNIA OFF from rest of states.Republicans don’t want people to die ,jackass. But they Do WANT AMericans first!

        • You want to help Mexico and Central America? ANNEX THEM. By force.

          I wouldn’t want to deal with that shitpile. I’d rather just wall it off for all eternity.

      6. Nancy Pelosi = the 12th district of CA. entirely within the city of San Francisco.

        Need there be anything else said?

      7. Camping on public or private land without permission. REALLY? Here in the south that will get the 3S rule applied to anyone trespassing. Especially if caught and asked to leave and don’t or comes back to do it again.

        • CPB, they won’t do that on any of my relatives’ properties if they know what’s good for them. Better yet they should just avoid that area altogether. They damn sure won’t be welcomed.

      8. “Those that must live among the escalating decay are often numb to it…”

        Or, you’re a bigot. Naughty bigot.

        I am not taking any hard stance, on the homeless, unless I know the reason for their bad (job placement). I mean luck.

        I had a black friend. (sarc) I mean job placement.

        He was limpy from being shot. Entitled wife forced him to sleep in the driveway of his own house, because of the courts.

        He felt this was higher class than the homeless, so cursed and threw things at the hobos.

        I was supposed to orient this person to a management position, as “working” was a condition of his welfare payment, and he was a tax benefit to the company, more than it cost to under pay him. (Obviously, not enough to eat.)

        It’s a ship of fools, not a meritocracy.

        • Many of you commented in favor of brick-and-mortars. Do you know all the reasons why they failed. rotflmao

      9. Send in the scoops

        • Soylent Green.

          Whose saying that, though. Trads have been replaced for over 50yrs.

      10. For the last five years, we’ve had lots of homeless, and it’s similar to what happened with the Great Depression and Hooverviles. Then, tents were uncommon so people would make shacks from junkyard materials and even dig a hole in the ground. These happened on the edge of town and were common.

        Before you ever make fun of the homeless, it can happen to anyone, especially in high real estate markets like California. A month without work, and you miss the rent, get a eviction notice, then in second month, the sheriff’s department sends out deputies. They HATE that job.

        The same thing happens if your spouse gets sick as most Americans need two incomes to pay the bills. One serious hospitalization and there is no way to pay plus job loss.

        Next thing you know, you and your wife and two kids are living in a car in a parking lot. And when you run out of money, you sell it and buy a tent.

        It can happen to anyone. And many boomers have had 30 year old children move in with them plus their family. Imagine all the added EXPENSES.

        You could have a mixed up kid who is homosexual and runs away, start using drugs, and living on the street. There are so awful stories that are so common, and after 2-3 years of that, the might not ever recover from it.

        Sadly many young returning veterans have issues if they have no family and have conflicts with the VA on disability and injuries and PTSD. And there are limited facilities for single men who are homeless. Alcoholism is common and persistent pain leads to addiction.

        There are mixed up straight kids who hang around with miscreants and end up homeless. That is extremely tragic as they end up as prostitutes. And then they self-medicate with drugs. Then end up pregnant and with STDs…possibly HIV.

        Going to church is all well and good, but Americans are suffering and in need of the Gospel. There are plenty of ministry opportunities.

        • Homeless people are straight out of Matthew 25 and the sheep and the goats because they are hungry, thirsty, sick, naked, in prison by evil and drugs and mental issues, etc. They are very mixed up people, who then get terribly depressed and are hopeless as well. It takes a tremendous effort to turn them around.

          Don’t just read about the Good Samaritan, be the Good Samaritan.

          30 And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him , and departed, leaving him half dead. 31 And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. 32 And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked
          on him , and passed by on the other side. 33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him , 34 And went to him , and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. 35 And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave
          them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee. 36 Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves? 37 And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.
          Luke 10:30-37

          You want the ELOHIM to show you mercy,but when did you show mercy?

          • mXOn1yLdDZg
            This young lady was homeless and a drug addict, but with her parents and a structured Christian program, is on back on the right path.

            Without intervention from Christians she likely would have ended up incarcerated and just another statistic.

            • you know i hate it when you make sense MR! Truly good opinion there sir!

        • Before you ever make fun of the homeless, it can happen to anyone, especially in high real estate markets like California. A month without work, and you miss the rent, get a eviction notice, then in second month, the sheriff’s department sends out deputies. They HATE that job.

          I can answer that one for myself, and the second my reason’s not true anymore I am OUT. O-U-T out.

          I try to be nice to people, but I see what this is. It’s one giant game of Survivor. I come off as transactional. They want to believe everything is awesome. Everything’s not awesome. I’ve played this game before. It ended in eviction for her, near bankruptcy for me, and more child abuse than you can shake a stick at (at their schools, from her, on and on). Anyone that thinks that Mexicans aren’t MORE racist than we are… I invite you to send kids to schools full of them or try to join a day labor brigaid, I’ve been forced to do both.

          As a white boy let me tell you it goes over really well.

          Tra la la we’re all evil white people whatever.

          I’m sure my grandfather probably was (oh wait he wasn’t he was dirt poor). Ok, I’m sure half my grandfather’s generation was. Why don’t you go dig ’em up and have it out with them? But no you’re going to blame me eternally so get ready for me to live up to your worst expectations out of pure spite. You’re familiar with the concept, “nigga”, are you not? Why do you call yourselves that except out of pure spite for what you’ve been through?

          Anyway the point is if you know you’re living in a place you can’t possibly survive in if you so much as get the sniffles, WHY ARE YOU THERE.

          You like living under an active volcano too?

          Shit happens because you deserve it. I am once again being reminded on a daily basis how I’ve come to this aggravated and depressed conclusion. No matter what I do, no matter how hard I try, it’s never “pure” enough for these people, I am wage slave class, I will always be that until I stop relying on the non-existent courtesy of others and start kicking ass and taking names.

        • If a family gets evicted one month after losing a job, that means just one thing, and that is they were living beyond their means before the job loss. They probably had two cars that were only a year or two old, credit cards maxed, and any other place they can borrow money. It’s called saving for a rainy day. The parents first priority is the welfare of their children. If they got evicted after a month they failed in providing for the family.
          People that are forced into poverty due to medical issues/expenses, unfortunately that is a sad heartfelt reality for many. A major medical problem has the potential to wipe out a families entire wealth in a short time.

      11. I was once homeless. Lived in an abandoned house. I found work,and gradually made myself whole again. No excuse why others can’t do this. The taking of drugs,alcohol, and engaging in other self destructive behavior doesn’t help. I’m not bragging,this is just what happened. Others can do it,but it takes hard work and self-discipline. People today are wussies,soft,and want free this and that. Reality doesn’t work that way.

        • It seems that the catch in helping homelessness and other assorted social problems is getting those in desperate need of help to understand that they personally need to contribute to their recovery. As you said, it takes hard work and self-discipline both of which can be learned.

          • It’s a multifactorial problem as is most medicine.

            Say I meet some person and talk to them about the Gosel. I have no power to alter their mind, heart, soul. They have to be recptive to it and I am bound not to make it more palatable so they are persuade (not sugarcoat it). The evangelist is a catalyst like the lady in the Bible who leavened a whole measure of flour.

            A physician cannot miraculously heal the sick. The patient has to want to get better and persistantly elect to make changes. The physician can only be a catalyst ie an agent of change.

            Homeless people are sick, hungry, thirsty,naked, in prison by bad choices, drug addicted, have committed crimes, etc. You can stabilize their life and love and care for them, even if spit upon, but they have to wake up and want to change.

            LA and similar cities typically offer no tough love and worse they encourage congregating together which fosters contagion of infectious disease, more crime, more drug use, attracts Johns to inexpensuve prostitutes, etc.

            • There are two other possibilities.

              1. Politicians are getting paid to be enablers by organized crime who are getting kickbacks by crime persisting in their territory. Politicians get re-elected in this manner of political contributions through intermediaries. Outrageous isn’t it? They are SCUM.

              2. There is a supernatural battle being waged for their souls and powerful entities wage that battle that we cannot see, only sense.

              The only time group 1 will do something is when it so harms tourism or investment, that a show of force destroys the tent cities. This then makes it 100 times worse because now whatever assets the homeless had like pots and utensils and clothing, medicines, jackets, blanket, etc are LOST and have to be replaced. In my opinion that is when group1 and 2 are jointly battling.

            • It is my belief that Jesus is the only answer. It has also been my personal experience when attempting to help the down-and-out as it was with Jackie Pullinger of “Chasing the Dragon” that Jesus only works for those who go all in fully and completely committing to searching for Him with all their heart. Also, from personal experience I have seen that it takes accepting all the Bible as the complete word of God and rejecting none of it. This requires accurately handling the word of truth as spoken of in 2 Timothy 2:15 and something that should be desired and prayed for.

              It is not joyful when you are met with failure when attempting to help someone. And, it is unlikely that I will ever take on one of these projects again without a clear indication that they are willing to both seek with all their heart and completely accept all the Bible as God’s divinely inspired word. Also, with my logistical situation I will have to be able to assure the safety of the innocent ones around me. It would be nice to have the luxury of the good samaritan and simply be able to take them to an inn and not my home. I have done both and the home is the nicest when it does not put others in harms way.

              I recently took the time to visit a homeless veteran flying the sign on the side of the street (panhandling). This man was clearly now operating in the Spirit, fully seeking the Lord with all his heart, and reading his Bible. He told me that he had come out of San Francisco. I felt the desire to help him more and wanted to take him into my home, yet I had to tell him that my wife and I have decided at our age and with grandchildren present that we will not open our home again as we have in the past. This homeless veteran gave me a tremendous gift by telling me he appreciated the sentiment, but it was okay because he liked what the Lord was doing with him.

              Like the song “Call it Grace” by Unspoken there is great joy when you see a God inspired success regardless of whether you had a part in it or not.

              This homeless veteran made me wonder about the two witnesses spoken of in chapter 11 of Revelation whose dead bodies will lie in the street for three and a half days and what kind of preparation these two will go through to be able to accomplish their task. It is my assumption that it can’t be someone used to all the comforts of home as those of us who have never experienced homelessness.

              “I have no power to alter their mind, heart, soul.” So true, however Romans 10:14 comes to mind and it helps those who are lost to have the chance to hear His voice as spoken of in Revelation 3:20 and it is up to them to open the door. So many just slam it in His face.

              “At night my soul longs for You, Indeed, my spirit within me seeks You diligently; For when the earth experiences Your judgments The inhabitants of the world learn righteousness.” Isaiah 26:9

              Has it begun? Is this rampant homelessness simply one of the judgements… We are certainly learning firsthand the consequences of unrighteousness… And the many still eschew and spit at the only One who can heal any land.


            • The weak-minded are the ones that “find Jesus”. The strong minds realize it’s all a big hoax.

              • You just made a claim. According to the rules of philosophy and debate, support your claim with logic and evidence. Otherwise it’s crude mockery and of the lowest caliber. Such actions would be dismissed in any philosophy class or debate competition.

                • Such are the tactics of the new atheists who are the grand intellectually deliquient stepchildren of their logical predecessors atheists.

                  You see, they know nothing, have zero decorum, want to shut down the exchange of ideas, and are clueless about the dialectic. They cannot persuade anyone as to the veracity of atheism. They presume being openly dismissive in the most puerile ways is somehow a display of their superiority.It is not! Instead it is an embarrasment like a three year old having a tantrum.

                  Try harder and if you cannot, take a basic philosophy course at a university. That once was practically a requirement.

                • M:

                  However, unlike the Koran, the Bible tells us to not be offended (we are fools for Jesus after all) and to “shake the dust off” our boots and get on down the road to someone who will listen.

                  The field is ripe for harvest, but the laborers are few.

                  BlackMoe doesn’t need what we are selling. Fine, I wish him well.


        • Southside you really nailed it. I was homeless six years ago but made the most of it. Work just dried up,so I put all of my things in storage,and camped in the mountains in my van with my girlfriend and our cat.It was a very humbling experience.We made the best of it, it was almost fun like camping until it rained non stop for three weeks, and she got sick. So I spent my last bit of cash on a hotel for a week,so she could get better,she ends up with a maid job there so rent became half price, and I found a job a few days later. I also did work for the people who owned the hotel, bidding by the job.We stayed there six months, I only paid rent for two weeks working the rest off and left there with a bunch of cash. Now I’m way better off but I learned a lesson from it,always be thankful for all you DO have and always set some money back for emergency’s if possible.Like you, I didn’t sit around and whine for handout I dug my way out of the hole. Where there’s a will there’s a way. I do acknowledge if you don’t have a vehicle or run out of money, it would make it quite a bit harder to dig yourself out.

        • Job?
          If homeless very tough/difficult, near impossible situation for some.
          Employers will not hire you if you STINK.
          Homeless people have tough time with good hygein, clean clothes.
          * * Wheels: Employers here require transportation.
          If you admit to not having working vehicle you won’t likely get the job. If other candidate is clean, clean clothes, has newer working vehicle. Then if you as a homeless have a bit of smell, wrinkled clothes, worn shoes, no vehicle. Guess who gets hired? Not the homeless.
          * * Paperwork: We live in a communist stasi controlled society where people are numbered as livestock. If you don’t have your ear tag(social security card/number), If you have no government issued ID, then you don’t get most jobs. No paperwork. No job. “You must have papers. Where are your papers?”
          * * Phone: No phone no job. Employers think of you as property. They want access to you 24/7. They want to be able to call you. No phone no job.
          * * Address: Employers want to be able to find you. If you have no address. NO job.
          * * Bank Account: Many emploers too cheap to even issue checks. The employers require bank account for direct deposit. No bank account. No job. This is government ccontrol mechanism. Your money is not your money. It is THEIR money to take. Government wants access for taxes, child support, leins, whatever else excuse they come up with to clear your account if they deem you naughty, deliquient on school loans, whatever made up reason.
          * * Background: Employers want to snoop. Who are you? Have you ever had an indiscretion? Ever made a mistake? Have a “record.” If you have, then you will pay for that for the rest of your LIFE. You will NOT get many jobs if EVER got caught up in anything. here the employers make YOU pay for background check out of your pocket. BEFORE you have that job. How can a broke homeless person pay for this? No proof of clear record, No job.
          * * Education: Employers here want a 4 year college degree, professional certifications, etc. Then they want to pay $11.00 for menial work. Work that a monkey could do. You must prove that you have been brainwashed by university/college. That you have been compliant, showed up, and sat through the mindless drivel of the mostly anti American communist professors. No proof of formal education. No low paying job for you.
          No Degree. No Job.

          Then their is the E-Verify stasi government tracking system. If you are on the list. You get a job. Government deems you politics naughty. Then your employer gets a call usually within 45 days on outside from government official. After that call recieved, most employers fire you.

          * * Military Service: This is NOT the case in my area. My area is mostly Veteran friendly. Even pro veteran. Being a vet might help you get a job here. But in MANY areas of the country, especially communist California and leftist communist stronghold “liberal” states. You will NOT get a job if you list military service. These leftist are real zealot nuts. If you are veteran, other candidate is not, then the non veteran gets the job in communist leftist states/communities.

          Yes their are laws against discrimination. But so what? If you are poor you have ZERO power or rights. The employers do whatever they want to do. You don’t matter. Laws don’t matter. Amazon employees are pushed so hard that they literally piss in jugs, no breaks, to keep a low pay job that will be replaced by robots. While Bezos founder is richest man in world. You are forced literally a gunpoint to pay taxes, or you go to jail. Jeff Bezos Amazon pays no taxes. Apple pays no taxes. But you will or you get raided, home taken, the sent to jail.
          Welcome to “freedom”, welcome to the “changed” Amerikka.

          Being homeless on the bottom and crawling is TOUGH. Impossible for those with PTSD from combat, self medicating people with dope or booze issues.

          SO get off your high horse. You could be next. Most people are one medical emergency, one natural disaster, one job loss, away from being homeless. Most people homeless within 60-90 days at most after above.

          Yes it can happen to you.

          A man goes to war. Comes home. Wife is gone. Vehicles sold while he was away. Belongings sold in garage sale. Bank cleared out because all his pay was sent to account. That account now closed by run away wife.

          You seen some shit. Have a drink or six to deal with issues. BINGO. Homeless within a month. Seen this up close. Not just once. Many many times to good men.

          Or one Fire, Tornado, Earthquake, Hurricane, Economic down turn, One major medical issue, You will likely be homeless. This doesn’t just happen to the “bum”. It happens to families. Good families. Good people. Good soldiers.

          “So think before you speak or judge.”
          “don’t judge until you have walked in the other man’s boots.”

          Homeless is a real problem. Homeless will get MUCH MUCH worse. Yes it could happen to YOU!

          Actionable Solution for you: BUILD RELATIONSHIPS.
          Pick you friends carefully. Pick your church carefully. Pick your tribe carefully. They may be the only thing that keeps you from being homeless. I would advise you to build these Relationships NOW before needed. Truely a matter of life and destitution/death.

          * * * This web site needs article on the importance of tribe and relationships in SHTF crises.

          Government and society does everything they can to minimize and intentionally tear down family, friends, neighbors, church. But is SHTF that is ALL you have.

      12. You ain’t seen nothin’ yet. Wait until Schmucky Schumer, Pineapple Princess Pelosi, and the rest of George Soros’ puppets on the progressive left welcome the tens of thousands of unskilled, undocumented, illegal immigrants heading our way from Central America (and who knows where else), through our southern border.

      13. Put every homeless person in the country to work building the shelter they will dwell in at the border, building the wall at the border, and defending themselves and the wall at border. Start with maybe 3 yr to 5 yr service agreement for each, including meals, healthcare, dwelling, and a yearly salary, with incentives. Each to remain on site until proof of recovery from their affliction. $18 billion ought to cover it.

      14. In the news, Trump signs bill which is practically granting amnesty to “illegals”.

        It is a big win for pedophilia and child prostitution as it makes it illegal to separate children from the adult trafficking them by making a sweeping decision to make it illegal to separate a child from the adult bringing them into the USA across the Southern border. The bill will also allow 55 miles of fencing to be put up. Just a small obstacle for the multitude of migrants crossing into our country.

        Are you in favor of this bill?


      15. Do you get it yet??? ALL GROWTH IS CANCEROUS!!

        I told you, if we stopped growing the {population=debt=inflation} after WWII we would still be at 140 million people, and a dollar earned back then and saved in the bank at 5% would be worth at least $10, with the prices of goods at the same prices as 1945.

        No, you idiots demand growth, growth in title 19 welfare scumbaggotry, well look at you sorry assed fat bastards trillions in debt and with dollars that become worthless.

        • what I’m trying to say is imagine America with a population of 140 million, and each person become very important, each person with an actual job to do, no one scamming the welfare system, no one spending their life on drugs instead of working, etc, no fucking excuses for not trying!!

          That is the typical American adult, million and one excuses for being morbidly obese or perpetually drunk, perpetually irresponsible.

          Near future you Bezos will get what you deserve, America 500 million morbidly assholes that can’t wipe their own asses, with a national debt of $100 trillion, yet only 50 million actual full time workers, and the women will still vote for Democrats and whoever offers the most welfare entitlements.

          YOU KNOW I’M RIGHT!!

        • Apparently the world population has stopped growing, and is indeed shrinking.

          It takes a family tp produce 2.1 children just to maintain the population. In Europe the average birthrate is 1.6 children, while in Japan its 1.4 children.

          We have become very good at stretching out lives, but not at producing lives.

      16. One common theme on this site is “get out of debt”
        I’d like to add another one, “Get out of the city”.
        You may have to work in a city,
        but you’d be crazy to live in one.
        I spent years commuting in Seattle traffic,
        About 20,000 miles per year just for work.
        When I commuted in Los Angeles it was 40,000
        miles per year just for work.
        Don’t live in a city!
        Another part of my preps is I can fix most anything
        on a vehicle, if I can get parts, and information.
        That is important when you have vehicles with 250,000
        miles on them and they are old( my newest is 14 yrs old).

        • Homeless people gravitate to the urban areas because:
          1. There are public programs there versus the rural regions.
          2. Panhandling for change is how they scrape by and the success rate is tied to a few out of many contributing.
          3. Mental illness is higher in the urban regions.
          4. Urbans areas have more crime so the druggies who are homeless then make some money that way. Johns pick up cheap prostitutes.

          It’s indicative of a lack of ancestral skills as a smart prepper who went bankrupt would just flee to the closest National Forest and go off trail in the backpacking region. Many could make it by earning some on seasonal work for food and likely doing a little unauthorized trapping and fishing.

          The last place to go is the urban areas if you have your head screwed on straight. That’s the issue, they don’t. It’s awful to see young people who are homeless because they are preyed upon by wolves who use them as mules or worse.

          • Mara,
            I have a panhandling story. I’m going to use Seattle area names.
            In the city of Issaquah as you exit to SR 900 is a popular panhandler spot. So is the I-5 Madison ave. exit in Downtown Seattle.
            A local reporter followed these guys one day. They have quite a system. They rotate all over and have a van for pickup and drop-off.
            One pan handler they followed lived in an upscale neighborhood, the Green Wood district( $300,000+ housing), and drove a new Mercedes sedan.
            Admittedly there is a large homeless population living in tents under I-5 in Seattle, but they all are being enabled by our charity, I donated to Union Gospel mission for years.
            Same here in Hawaii, we enable them with our charity.
            Here I support Salvation Army women’s shelters.
            I’m obligated to give someone in need, a Hand up, but not
            a hand out.
            I never give money to a pan handler.
            Never the less get out of the city.

            • I flat out REFUSE to give money to panhandlers. A young man said, “Got any change?” so I smiled benignly, bent real close, an inch from his face,and remember I am an old grizzly dude (and very kindhearted to a fault but he didn’t know that), and yelled with all my might, “CHANGE!” right in his face.

              It got his attention. He was as white as a sheet.

              What I have done is given truly hungry people my lunch…and did without.

              • About a decade ago, some Bosnia refugees were pulling a panhandling scam.It was two women with kids, and of course they stood by intersections and when the light was red, they would approach the cars with their kids, and people gave them money. How naive can you get?

                Meanwhile, the average homeless family looks shellshock and is humiliated and sleeping in a parklot with good lighting and washing up at the Walmart restroom. They mostly don’t panhandle. If you see them, you discreetly ask the dad to go in with you and get them some groceries. They will be extremely grateful and crying.

                • The average homeless family can’t handle in KY or Southern IN because:
                  1. They will then get chased out of the parking lot.
                  2. Will be charged with vagrancy
                  3. The LEOs will target them.
                  4. They will lose custody of their kids due to child endangerment and or contributing to the deliquency of a minor.
                  5. Any public arguing then can be called creating a public nuisance.


                  Churches will lose their insurance carrier if homeless sleep on the property but some feign ignorance if they sleep in the parking lot and are very low key. Additionally some will buy an old campground and try some crude set up plus the foodbank, clothing closet helps. And some church members try to find them seasonal or temp work. If stable, they might hire them as caretakers or farm hands or stable hands.

                  Don’t confuse the bulk who have slipped through the cracks and have kids with scam artists who are a tiny fraction. Scam artists are just pulling cons by approaching guys with their girlfriends on weekend dates, often at festivals, and so are more apt to help them with “bus fare” otherwise they look cheap to their dates.

                  • The most typical pro panhandler is a pretty innocent looking young woman wearing clothes with holes in them and people give since she’s a good actress. The second most common looks like a young professional woman who claims her car was stolen or she was robbed, and approaches gullible men who want to be heroes. Her acting ability might pay $50-60,000 a year.

                    They will routinely pull a scam where they pandandle for gas money at a service station even though they didn’t actual pump any. They appear frantic and distraught and teary eyed. A large percentage of guys and couples will then give them $10. Suckers. They can make $200 a day doing that easily.

                  • EWdoGtdN_7g
                    An amateur with a sob story makes $50/hour but he then has to move to another gas station to keep making money as the gas station attendants are wise to it.

                    The most successful ones are innocent looking co-eds saying they are stranded.

                    It’s not the homeless who are doing this as they most often lack cars. People are apt to help some nonthreatening looking 18-25 year old woman.

                  • Since charities get very confused, at times, I would want to know who is the recipient.

                    fwiw, boarding these people is allowed, when you report to the govt. The business is called crisis housing. It is subsidized. And, the host is allowed to be very selective.

                  • Mara,
                    A significant portion of my wife’s family lives in KY.
                    I confirm what you say.

            • I worked at a Walmart for a while when living in Montana. I worked outside almost my entire shift. One day I saw a NEW 4×4 extended cab truck park up by the road. A minute later a guy got out and headed to the intersection with a cardboard sign that said “Will work for food”. He probably made more in a day than I made in a week.

          • So your saying rural folks don’t have substance abuse problems. I think you better take a look at what goes on Indian reservations. Don’t tell me Indians don’t have ancestral skills. Urban areas are where jobs are. The trees never cut anyone a check. The panhandling is a lot less than you think. Yes it does happen but it would happen if everyone was paid more than enuff. Sounds like your afraid of the streets. Why do people talk down about the city. I grew up in the streets I’ve seen the worst things you can imagine. go down to the city and buy something get a haircut. You will see your fears are overblown. I’d say your paranoid of the city folks. That’s sad. I’m not trying to trash you but think about it. Yep the city streets are dirty and there is homeless and fucked up people thats life for some. Your fears are unjustified

            • There are many substance abuse folks in rural areas. I never said otherwise.

              Native Americans actually have medical issues due to genetics as enyzemes made by the liver that process ethanol, are made in far less abundance, and that is why drinking alcohol is so much worse for them. That is a well studied medical phenomena.

        • R:

          How far away from LA did you live ?

          52 x 5 = 260 potential work days

          2 weeks vacation => 260 – 20 = 240 days

          10 holidays => 240 – 10 = 230 days

          Miles per Day = 40,000/230 = 175 miles or about 85 – 90 miles away.

          How long per day did this commute take ?

          Inquiring minds and stuff 🙂


      17. “Suffocating In Sh!t” is, indeed, a fitting metaphor for Planetary Pariah USSA.

        The sooner it’s flushed doen the drain, the sooner mankind can breathe free.

      18. The moral decay in our society
        50 years ago if you didn’t work you didn’t eat
        Now you can stay home smoke crack and drink your 40
        Hang out in your hood on the front porch and don’t forget to rob steal for cash
        Hell your already robbing everyone anyway
        Free houseing free food and a couple of free obumer phones hell you
        would be a fool to go to work

      19. Dem controlled cities/states are just “Marxist run Cesspools”….

      20. Add homeless people together with loads of excrement and rats and you have pandemic. It’s like a chemical formula We’ve seen it in underdeveloped nations for years and will happen here as well.

      21. Well, I do speak as a visitor and as a guest.
        First time visiting the US, I was shocked about all these homeless people and also about the faces of people who are struggling with their jobs and finances day in day out.
        Big US cities are just nasty and shows how the us looks for their people. Even most of the people will not agree on this and cant imagine anything else than what they see. This isnt the way it should work, this isnt how a great country looks like at all. Its on,….
        Coming from europe, friends warned me about the homeless problem to not be to shocked. Still the worst thing I have seen. These homeless camps, how society deals with it, how publicly this can bee seen and how easy this can happen ro everyone over there in a view months. Life changes fast and when in the states, to me it looked like most of the time it didnt changed for better side. Guys get a real social system like in europe, it may not be perfect and it costs a lot.
        But for what it gives for people and takes care for the weaker, is absolutley needed. Also health insurance would be a good thing, when affordable. Could you pay for any illnes approaching you right now? I couldnt, and I wouldnt have to. This is the only thing not going to make me wnna life in the states. No social system and chances of living on the streets and never get back up again ist just to high there! I have never needed anything from our social system, working hard, earning money, making a living, still cant afford a house in europe but hey. Never going to life under a bridge or in the woods. And ->minimum 4 Weeks of holidays, one job is enough to feed me and when its gone I have 70% of my salary sure for the next 2 years ( I have to make at least 2 job applyments per week) and if this has been passed, you will get a signle room somwhere, food and cloths until you find a job(you will need to pay back this stuff after the 2 years). Not having a job is obly cool for 2-3 Months, after then,… its just boring and you want to have a job, there is litterly none of your friends around as they are working.

      22. THe USSA – without without so much a murmur from its zombie populace – turned places like Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria in hell-holes, as even now it takes aim at Venezuela.

        In case you haven’t heard: “As a man sows, so shall he reap”… or, more commonly “what goes around comes around”… and PAY-BACK is comin’ aound to bite the USSA in its dumb fat a$$ – BIG TIME!

      23. Look BEHIND the fcking curtain folks

        The USSA is nothing but a litany of serial ROUGE REGIMES merely masqerading as “Government” – but beholden to the ‘Prince Of Darkness’ – now making WAR on its own people.

        And what’s described here is just the START. Wait ’til the NDAA is implemented – just ONE false-flag away! – and you’ll wake up to find you don’t own a FCKING THING and are OFFICIALLY a SERF Of THe STATE… if THEY decide to let you live that long.

        WAKE THE FCK UP!!!

      24. Don’t let Lucifer enter your heart.

        Lucifer will say, “Those evil impoverished people make me sick.Why don’t they get a job? Why are they so dirty and stinky? Look those kids don’t even have coats! Those parents are rotten and raising rotten children. They probably are drug addicts!”

        What if it were you? What if the suffering child was your seven year old daughter or son that you adore? What if it was your pretty wife and she was suffering? What if it was your parents?

        If you love Jesus, you imagine you are helping Jesus when he was most despised. Think of how Jesus has come to your rescue. How many times did teachers make excuses for your bad behavior? I bet they were Christians.

        The more you help others, the more you are aware how blessed you are that YAHWEH does NOT punish us for all our many sins. You sins are forgiven but your awareness of the magnitude of that forgiveness will increase. It’s very humbling.

        Don’t go to Heaven empty handed and having done nothing to make the world a better place. Pride and sefishness are Lucifer’s tools to poison the Earth and the hearts of men become totally bitter and full of regret and grief.

      25. Sad what has happened to this site.

      26. This Nation has cast away the Word of God, and this is what we were being warned about in its pages. The only hope is for individuals at this late hour. The Gospel has been preached until the very mention of the Name of Jesus is just a joke. There is no salvation elsewhere. All of the ‘helping’, the programs, throwing money at people are obviously not working. And the people drowning in the mire are not willing to call on the God they blame for their condition. He has opened the Door, and made a way for “whosoever will”. The Bread and water of Life are available upon repentance. Agree with God, get turned around and find out what He has to say. Until that happens we will see souls devoured by the Enemy that they have gleefully followed straight to hell.

      27. Pick the city, Detroit MI, Allentown Pa, Camden NJ. they were all vibrant and thriving when they had a strong manufacturing base employing the residents.

      28. I’m thrilled to see that the residents of these fine liberal west coast Hell holes are finally getting to see the effects of their radical left ideology. Sometimes you have to allow people to destroy themselves before you can fix them. No sympathy from me.

      29. Rats, Public Defecation And Open Drug Use: Our Major Western Cities Are Becoming Uninhabitable Hellholes
        It is like that everywhere the Democrats go. Just look at who is running the cities. Need not to say more!

      30. americas problems will largely go away when its big blue cities in blue states go away

        • Bingo

        • When the blue cities in the blue states go away, it will be the beginning of sorrows.

          Speaking of Newsom’s constituency, I think that the mainstream, Sunday school version of Sodom and Gomorrah is vague and truthy, in much the same respect as Washington’s cherry tree, Lincoln’s penny, John Henry, or other myths, with a kernel of truthiness.

          Why do San Fran Christians say the problem was hospitality:
          In pseudoepigrapha, apocrypha, etc, Sodom, et al, were also guilty of unscolicited sales and regulatory capture — particularly of migrants.

          The doomed cities of the plane had an entirely-corrupted society, whose laws should seem familiar to us Californians.

          The planned, physical barrier of the rightists, and the virtual smart barrier of the leftists, and the travel restrictions of their globalist benefactors, are all comparable.

          The Dem push for civilian disarmament has always been de rigeur, under a peace keeping emergency, no matter where.

          This blue state is proposing rebellion, not that illegals are a party to it, per se. Migrants are nomadic by nature. Migratory. They may just as soon swim in the other direction, when the water rises — levees permitting.

          The first Babylon was breached by water.

          “The alien who is among you shall rise above you higher and higher, but you will go down lower and lower.”
          — Deut 28:43 NAS

          “Babylon is suddenly fallen and destroyed: howl for her; take balm for her pain, if so be she may be healed. We would have healed Babylon, but she is not healed: forsake her, and
          *let us go every one into his own country*
          for her judgment reacheth unto heaven, and is lifted up even to the skies.”
          — Jer 51:8-9 KJV

          The caravans of useful idiots are just a symptom. Not the cause. When were are turned into a third world sewer, why should any of the indigents stay in this sewer like rats, who have an instinct to flee the sinking ship. People, reading here should pay attention to lots of self deportation, if that is conspicuous. Like when lots of animals run away from something.

      31. Elect AOC president and double the population in illegal invasion in four years.

        AOC An Old Cotex must be thrown away

        She sounds like a four year old girl.
        Her philosophy and knowledge is that of a braindead stoned hippy from 1968.

        “Wouldn’t it be great if gold coins rained from the sky and no one had to ever work again” -fucking stoned hippy

        • AOC needs to do one of those online fake date sexy movies. She would be good at that and give far more pleasure back to the world than she ever will as a politician.

      32. Those condemning the libs of San Francisco for allowing and creating conditions for rampant drug use on the streets, homelessness, tent cities, public defecation, pan-handling, trash buildup, break-ins, property destruction, declining tourism, and all other manner of non-desirable elements to exist are not seeing it correctly; rather I celebrate it is happening there (and many other cities). It makes the point that the progressives facilitate these type of social and urban conditions. Simultaneously, even as they allow the city to becomes an increasingly undesirable place to live and do business, taxes and the cost of living there continue to go up. Eventually there must be, and assuredly there will be a point where something will change. They will either listen to the citizens and business entities and restore some type of order, or the city will deteriorate. Personally, I really don’t care.
        Look at what has happened to Detroit, Baltimore, St. Louis, Chicago, Newark, and lots of other once prosperous cities. There are now cities across the continent in the US that look like Berlin-1945. The urban centers are becoming little more than cauldrons of poverty and crime. If an economic collapse occurs they will surely erupt into uncontrollable social upheaval. (The national infrastructure is also failing and falling apart, but it seems we are willing to borrow billions and billions of dollars to give away at taxpayer expense to other countries.)
        There’s really no point getting upset how the US is deteriorating politically, socially, morally, financially, or physically, its way past the ability to do anything about it anyway. The fed. gov’t, most state gov’t.s, and all the major urban centers in the US are completely insolvent, and drastically so. Simply allow the conditions they have created to work in your favor, to do its work for you, the center cannot hold. For me, my family, relatives and friends, we want SECESSION!!!

      33. Romans 14
        1 Peter 3
        2Corinthians 5

        All three have passages how each Christian is DUTY BOUND to give an answer and later will give an account before YAHWEH for each time the Gospel was challenged.

        If I were to shake the dust off my feet, then I would end up cursing that household or city for the unhospitable attitude and reprobate behavior. I just have chosen not to do so.

        Every atheist will have to give an account for every useless word they utter due to Matthew 12:36 whereas every Christian can ask forgiveness for that sin and be forgiven.

        And publically stating their beliefs then makes an atheist an evangelist for Lucifer who could make their brother or sister to stumble (Romans 14), thus risking imperiling their souls as well…into HELL and eternal suffering and seperation from the ELOHIM!

        Ever action or lack of action has eternal consequences.

      34. IF – IF – the leftist west coast cities were to no longer be sanctuary cities and cesspools of vile activity, where would all these people go??? The illegals would hopefully go back to where they came from, but how about the non-illegals? They have to live somewhere, but where?

      35. You ain’t seen nothin’ yet. Wait until the many thousands of additional Third World unvetted, undocumented, unskilled migrants come flooding across our southern border all with the full blessing of Schumer, Pelosi, and the rest of George Soros’ progressive dupes in our government.

      36. We need a divorce. They can keep their polluted minds and soil. Bill Buppert was correct when he stated, “Secession is the only vote in history that ever mattered”.

        Yet we cling to the group-think delusion that we can use an evil system to fix evil? Have we been blinded to not see a system clearly designed ‘to reduce us under absolute Despotism’?

        Think New Borders! New Republic(s)!

      37. htt ps://www.foxnews.com/politics/kentucky-house-passes-bill-banning-abortions-if-roe-v-wade-overturned

        htt ps://www.lifesitenews.com/news/kentucky-senate-passes-heartbeat-abortion-ban-house-passes-roe-trigger-law

        Meanwhile, Kentucky Christians now wait for our very pro-life governor to sign bills that would effectively end abortion except if the mother’s life were threatened.

        ht tps://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/02/18/kentucky-senate-the-2nd-amendment-is-your-concealed-carry-permit/

        It looks like concealed carry permits will no longer be required ie all Kentuckians will have that 2nd Amendment protection UNHINDERED. And likely that will fall under existing state reciprocity laws as well.

        • htt ps://www.businessinsider.com/homeless-population-usa-states-2018-11

          We also have had a 50% decrease in homelessness from 2007-2017, and 2014-2017 all showed consistent decreases by being addressed through various means. In Daviess County we only have 500 homeless and many of those are transient IV drug users. Only 19 were long term homeless. Some bonehead leftist pushed for a needle exchange which attracted them.

          We are turning things around over all with two urban areas being the main culprits yet even those are showing historic declines.

          Well the rest of the nation is going to Hell in a handbasket, there are positive elements in Kentucky, particularly in Western Kentucky.

      38. Kentucky has three major issues.

        1. It is insolvent as are 38 other states. The reasons are free trade agreements were ruinous for our manufacturing and entirely too many state government employees were hired. Then the dolts in charge of pensions mismanaged the funds.

        2. Eastern Kentucky was hammered by Obama’s wanton destructive attack on coal operations and that annihilated rural towns leaving the illegal trade the only thing left.

        3. These facts have caused KY to be in eighth place on bankruptcies despite a decline of up to 40%. Our cost of living is low but we lack sustainable jobs due to the manufacturing and coal operations loss.

        All of these were self-inflicted wounds but can be turned around. Kentucky is Trumpland. I doubt there is a state more pro-Trump then KY.

        In terms of contagion, we have

      40. We have about 4,100 cases of Hepatitis A largely confined to Louisville and Lexington due to moronic Democrat policies, and that is out of 4.5 million citizens.

        htt ps://chfs.ky.gov/agencies/dph/dehp/idb/Pages/hepAoutbreak.aspx

        • Why am I mentioning Hepatitis A? There has been no documented transmission in this latest outbreak from restaurants, so the most likely transmission is spread by homeless folks and poor sanitation and who share a cigarette or MJ, or food, or a beverage.

          And that can severely infect the liver though death is uncommon. And so while typhus is intriguing since ordinarily rare, a far greater risk is Hepatitus A. Balance the concern against common contagion transmission.

      41. It is readily apparent to anyone who wishes to read a little that the LEFT hates the USA, the constitution and the whole history and founding of this country…

        Schumer, schiff, Pelosi are right in the middle of it…along with Debbie wash woman shut and many others.

      42. At this point, I am no longer sure that I want others to move to Kentucky as their rotten attitudes may ruin the great gains that are being made here.

        The last thing we need are atheists and Luciferians and leftists in Kentucky.

      43. The US needs to do what other countries do: use private contractors to remove these people off the streets at night and deport them or disappear them.

        These contractors tend to do their work around 3 or 4 am when the least number of people are on the street. If the pick-up is an illegal alien, they get taken to the airport, given a few hundred dollars (several months pay in the third world) and then flown home. If they are a drug addled loon, then they get disappeared. With such people it is easy to induce death (take an opioid) and then dump their body in a town 500 miles away. Rince, repeat.

        It is the kindest thing you can do. Leaving them to rot on the streets is cruel and gross.

      44. The fact that the cities mentioned in this article (and many others) are in the pathetic shape they’re in is not an accident. A good number of the major cities in America have been run by Democrat mayors, some of them for decades. The Democrats actually WANT the drugs here, they WANT the illegal aliens here, they WANT more crime (i.e. redistribution of wealth by force). Nancy Pelosi’s dream is to make every single major city and every small town in America look exactly like San Francisco! These run-down cities are the way they are BY DESIGN.

        The Democrats also want to raise the cost of everything that people depend on: property, vehicles, water, electricity, natural gas, food, petroleum, everything (this explains their love for the environmental movement, even though they couldn’t give a fuck about the environment). They know that if they can raise costs and reduce take home pay (another objective of theirs), that they can essentially create a third world country. The modern day Democrats are nothing but Communist filth and the scum of the earth, and yes, THEY HATE AMERICA THAT MUCH. However, they can’t execute their complete “fundamental transformation of America” without seizing the guns of every law abiding citizen. The Democrats WILL NOT STOP until all the guns are theirs.

        They’ve got lots of plans, such as: the fulfillment of Aztlan (or Reconquista), the implementation of the Cloward-Piven strategy, the raising up of malcontent activists for their Communist revolution (via public schools and universities), and of course, the end game being WHITE GENOCIDE (partially accomplished through the smuggling of heroin and fentanyl into white communities by the drug cartels). If people are poor, with little or no resources, and can’t afford to live, (perhaps on narcotics or victims of crime), they’re practically helpless. The Democrats KNOW THAT. These animals are evil, but not stupid. They know EXACTLY what they’re doing.

        Another thing the Democrats already figured out: if people are homeless, destitute, and isolated, with no friends or family to help them, where are they going to store their guns?
