Sounds like a plan

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Gov. Gavin Newsom announced his plans at a press conference Saturday evening to shelter the homeless during the COVID-19 outbreak.

There are an estimated 108,000 homeless people in the state of California, according to the governor’s office. Newsom said the state has over 2,400 hotel rooms secured, with 1,900 beds alone in San Diego County. Seven counties across the state have beds secured.


I wonder who’s going to pay for all the copper wiring and bathroom fixtures that will come up missing, not to mention the eradication of bedbugs, lice and other vermin in every single one of those rooms that they’re housed in?

    This is what’s considered a “planned controlled-burn”. Just postponed.
    There’s no way those hotels will ever be fit for “normal” customers after they leave.

    And who will move them out when the time comes? Remember the FEMS trailers in NO? The people refused to leave when times was up.

    Alcatraz is vacant is it not?

    Just another indicator that our politicians are indeed stupid.

    What would be the matter with a tent city?…’s good enough for our soldiers it ought to be good enough for these folks….then they truly could be burnt afterwards, or continually used to house the homeless….teach them how to dig a latrine, and the proper way to maintain sanitation in the field….maybe if they were clean and didn’t smell so bad they could actually get a job….I guess the big buggaboo would be having to give up drugs….during the depression the CCC worked for a lot of people….people living in tents in the woods, doing the good work of forestry…..3 hots and a cot?….

      Times have changed. It is now 3 hots for a vote.

      Because camping in a tent is wonderful and invigorating of the soul, because living in tents on the streets is acceptable, but the state putting the sick or destitute into tents is cruel and unusual. Although it is neither of those, it is ‘our’ fragile underprivileged at stake here. So what if the hotel is near your neighborhood, or in your town. You are water bearers for the state and don’t you forget it. You sound uppity to me.

    They’re fudging the numbers: I believe the hoard is closer to 176 thousand.

    Is California one of those states emptying the prisons? Lots of easy to clean rooms there.

    108,000 for 2400 rooms equals 45 people per room

    I’m surprised he hasn’t tried to take over Carnivals liners. Only a matter of time, I suspect

      Empty the fuel, tow them out to sea and let the navy sink them.
      Then machine gun the life boats.

    Should be no problem. Those from India and Latin America can pack their people like cord wood and still have room to cook. I don’t see the problem considering most of them live in tents, already…

    So did they take the motel rooms or did the owners have a choice? When this is finished they can use them as practice for the fire departments. Do they get room service and new sheets and towels every day? Who feeds these vermin?

  13. the other Rick says:

    Call the tents wigwams or sweat lodges. Sell the wholesome experience. The gift store is open 24/7. EBT accepted for all items, lottery inclusive.

  14. Trib says:

    they have been #2’ing on the ground so long that the question is who will clean up hallways. The border is closed.

    Guess which state is soon going to have ALL the homeless bums in the entire nation…

    I remember after Katrina, Houston so kindly took a bunch of homeless folks & put them up in hotels. They wouldn’t leave. They tore the hotels up. No good deed goes unpunished.
