    Sadly honest

    I agree with Zach, nothing to laugh about here, least of all the honesty of the message:

    I just recently moved to Denver, CO and captured this shot this afternoon downtown.

    I have no witty remarks for this photo. It is simply downright depressing. Best wishes.

    Ah, the funemployment of the Obama economy!

    And sadly, there is a larger point here: why bother saving for the future, when you know Obama or some other lib will try to take your 401K, your savings, or perhaps your home?

    And try to convince you that it is for your own good.

    CA is trying to (will) pass a “Homeless Bill of Rights.” Think it’s bad now, just wait. The law is specifically targeted at cities which have strict laws prohibiting panhandling and sleeping on the streets.

    Taken from the HuffPo:

    “The bill also would bar local law enforcement from applying laws governing such things as eating, sitting or panhandling in public places unless the county has satisfied a set of requirements that include a relatively low unemployment rate, a short wait for public housing and readily available public assistance.

    Concerns also remain about the cost of the bill, which requires the state Department of Public Health to fund health and hygiene centers.

    At the committee hearing on Tuesday, even lawmakers who voted to move the bill underscored those qualms.

    “While I can certainly appreciate the goal and the aspiration, we all know we simply don’t have the money to be able to provide that,” Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi, D-Torrance, said of the proposed hygiene centers.

    Even should that provision be stripped from the bill, it would leave the core of the legislation intact — what Jennifer Friedenbach of the San Francisco-based Coalition on Homelessness described as “making sure homeless people have a fundamental right to rest” without facing harassment.”

    I’m guessing that setting up hygiene centers is less expensive than fixing the mental health system. All the jobs in the world, public housing, and public assistance is not going help someone who is mentally ill or addicted. If anything, for an addicted person, all the assistance is enabling their behavior.
