  1. Opioid Drug Treatment Centers – housing or a service only? Have yet to read any YMCA summer camp connections yet, but…….build it and they will come……

    Fuggin funny facts……in one hand, put peon pea brain banter to paper and create panhandlng laws to force homeless outta the community……..while in the other hand, attract the homeless back through “treatment centers”………

    A certain % of homeless (a lot actually) won’t fend for themselves, but expect others to provide for them……a sorta forced libertarian lifestyle using the degredation of society as the gimmick to justify lazy ass passiveness for those who desire freebies…….

    Transitional Housing – Definately not denying that addicts could use a less costly alternative for housing, BUT NON ADDICTS REQUEST LESS COSTLY HOUSING too……..and the only way to provide that low cost housing is either freebies or crashing the whole economy so demand is suppressed………because no way in hell does the spread between personal income/asset value and house costs lessen…….iow, if you thought housing was costly now, how prepared are you for future costs that will only be higher notwithstanding a major economic crash????

    Housing is for the haves not the Have Nots because housing has been tied to land in such a manner so as to not allow a person to live just on the land alone…… Want to live there then you got to build things that you may not necessarily want to build……. Yet another example of force economics in American society……. No such thing as a free market system in America….. Anyone who suggests that America is a free market capitalistic economic system would be lying straight to your face, unless of course they look away…..

    HOJ bets on a crash………stripping most everything of monetary value……..ye who owns the land retains the land in so far as protecting that land can be manageable……..why ya think the mega billionaires are not building contractors or developers who personally own many parcels……..they own a business, big deal……….when shit hits the fan, people desire their little corner of the world……that is the reality that builds the desire to own land far away from urban areas……where deadbeats live, now and after the crash, meltdown, future zombie generations……..

  2. A better narrative – “using people as bait, victims, numbers, data” for a higher paying employment opportunity as part of the subterfuge of elite panhandling politics…….it is why so many people in politics have been trained to say or write, “xxxx needs mental health help”, etc……as a means to attack and defame the character of individuals while also building the employment network through false dialogues…….it is a HUGE RACKET….

      • Don’t forget entering a clinic either……..gotta pump up the political services sector that pays so well……..afterall, counselors are the next Warren Buffet…….so revered……so net worthy…….

        Sincere counseling, heart to heart relationships……NEVER MEET OVER MONEY…….like healthcare……….took millions of years before man perfected monetization over compassion whilst using compassion to support monetization……..even John Harden falls asleep after that compassionate sociopolitical Turkey Meltdown of hipocrisy……

        Who really believes that other people care enough to help provided that they don’t get paid a wage?????

        How many poor people serve on any of these local Grassroots organizations or political groups?????

        Jobs, jobs, jobs……..pay to play quid pro quo….. compassion is a psych tool…….no money, no care……who cares…….not those getting paid, that’s for sure……. it’s a job that pays….no one really cares about the recipient…….just the job…..

        Haves versus have nots……loyalty to power and control……. loyalty to a system…….

        Society is…….

        A HUGE Fuggin joke…….

  3. Drug Treatment Centers – attracts enough of the worst of society………like Kristy Woods, her live-in boyfriend, their trailor shack affordable house, 2 young boy eye witnesses, etc….to a heroin, meth pot addict murderer who stuck his penis inside the mouth of a 3 year old girl while mother watched and young boys viewed from an ajar door……

    Propisal: Humboldt is deteriorating because of grass roots politics and the inter-relations with outsiders, politics and scumbags for people……..it ain’t about long hair, no hair, color, clothing, poverty,houselessness, body odor, etc……it is about disrespect, damage, unhealthiness, criminal behavior, harassing others, being stuck on stupid, thinking ya have rights when ya don’t, turning blind eyes, etc……basically, the fine line that exhibits whether or not a person can simply and respectfully “hang” regardless of personal status…….iow, a person can be down and out, poor and still not be a douche…. Bad people complaining of their plight BUT DUMPING THEIR SHIT DOWN A RAVINE, ALONG A ROAD is commonin Humboldt (they own a car – insured, registration is another matter + somehow attained a bunch of shit that which money bought)……and pets, oh dear pets, so many abused by evil people who don’t have the human means to raise and reer that animal…..sigh

  4. Housing ownership in somewhat simple terms:

    HL……Houseless/landless = X%

    PB…….Potential Buyers/Bids = Y%

    RPA…..Real Estate Purchase Agreement……SUPPLY

    MLS….Multiple Listing Service……..SUPPLY

    POS…..Personal Online Sales………SUPPLY

    So, IF Y% is greater than X%, THEN a market exists.
    ……IF Y% is equal to X%, THEN a market exists……..
    ……IF Y% is less than X%, THEN a market still exists
    …… BUT the market is now about whether or not the
    …… SUPPLY is available for the limited buyers orders
    ……AND IF X% is the only buyer for free or less……
    …… THEN no need for new housing construction…….
    ……UNLESS its paid for by taxes along with a HUGE…
    ……Laundry List of rules and having to actually…………
    ……work to pay the rent to pay back taxpayers………….
    ……Plus, always the rotation of Y% into the county…….
    ……Rotation keeps the sales churning, increase Y%……
    ……Land Use and Zoning help the SUPPLY/DEMAND…
    ……Low Supply does nothing for the HL, PB’s sit……

    So, until those who can afford to buy a home can’t any longer, then those already houseless really have no say in the matter other than renting or politics……quite simple…….those who can afford as opposed to those who can’t afford……..the key is working, making money, no debt….buy a cheap starter……fix it up sweat equity and legal….or, buy a motorhome and live on the road, literally……

    Instead of asking, caving to HRC, or Supes, or others……..identify the reality and make the demands fair, reasonable, realistic, factual…….. that paints the mural of all the different “why’s” they don’t own a home…………if it can be proven that in any geographic region that working a full time job is still not enough to own a home, THEN is the worker a good saver or quick spender……and if all ducks are in a row with being a responsible person financially, is still being houseless an issue? If so, is a person willing to relocate to another region? Etc……. being pressured to move away when ya don’t want to….. it’s the reality of lifestyle, opportunities for all and societal costs as a result…….not everyone wants the same things in life, therefore it makes all sense having an economy that requires things of value be exchanged for a fee……now if only law applied as it should to provide as best as possible a “just society”……..we all know better, no doubt……

    • this is so stupid. People need homes. If the system denies homes to people who need them, the system does not work. Stop blaming people for systematic injustice. Do you want people on your side, or do want to suck up to an unjust system? The system doesn’t care if we abandon it, but your neighbors will hate you, and with good reason, if you try to tell them that they have no right to a home.
