  1. Oregon caught shipping their homeless to other states/cities. That is truly sad. Democratic controlled states/cities have the worst homeless, crime and disease problems. Go figure! Their "solution" is to pass these people to other locales.The Democrat controlled Mainstream Media reports "How bad these unwitting and unknowing recipient locales are to the homeless". This is truly a sick and barbarous move by the Democrats and their Dog Media!!!  It's disgusting…

  2. 75% of all homeless are mentally disturbed. Every single one of them belong in an institution where they can get the help they need !!!

  3. so the 1000 dollar fine ( to someone homeless and they don't have) is the justification to jail or transport to another state like NY does. shows once again that they are incapable of solving the problem and they just move it to someone else's yard. typical liberalism.

  4. Finally someone stoping people from living like that, I could see if you was hiding in a bush, dang get off the middle of the streets! Also, homeless people going to far in the medians with those signs, my goodness I’m embarrassed for them!

  5. I hired a 64 year old homeless lady that I saw living in a craw space behind my business. There is a 200 square foot empty storage room in my center that I let her stay in. That was 2 years ago. She turned out to be a great person that fell on hard times. She eventually rented a room in a house after a couple of months. She was so grateful for my help. Her long lost daughter somehow tracked her down and took her to Michigan to take care of her a month ago. I actually miss her..

  6. We need to round up all the homeless all over the country and dump it in the communist state of California and build a wall around it

  7. Democrats care so much about illegals, criminals and foreigners & foreign aid but don't care about cleaning up our own streets in American cities
    Democrats are sick. There are plenty of people (Americans) to help right here at home in our communities
    Democrats in Congress won't clean up their own districts

  8. Government should be held accountable for increasing homeless populations. We can't keep throwing money into temporary solutions. Its time to start building apartment buildings with 7 floors . Urban sprawl is a serious problem in America.

  9. A lot of these people of which they haven't mentioned are drug addicts who want to drink and get high all day.

    They don't want to keep a job or pay bills. That's not fair to working functioning members of society that have to live in areas around homeless with health risks.

    If they want to live off grid, they need to live in unoccupied areas. Living amoungst civilized society is a non option.

  10. The rampant rise in homelessness is a product of the Democratic Party's playbook.
    Now your clever Democratic Party controlled municipalities are busing their homeless to
    Republican Party controlled cites as reported.

     

    By her own admission, this is where Hillary Clinton got her paradigm.

    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< How to create a Socialist State by Saul Alinsky: >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    There are 8 levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a socialist state.
    The first is the most important.
    1) Healthcare — Control healthcare and you control the people (Culminating with Obama's ACA)
    2) Poverty — Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control
    and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live. (The Great Depression engineered by Joseph P. Kennedy with the crash of 1929)
    3) Debt — Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.(FDR abolishes the gold standard)
    4) Gun Control — Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.(1934 NFA to present)
    5) Welfare — Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income). (The Great Society circa 1960s JFK/LBJ)
    6) Education — Take control of what people read and listen to — take control of what children learn in school.(Post Modernism circa 1970s)
    7) Religion — Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools.(Post Modernism circa 1970s)
    8) Class Warfare — Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor.
    This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.
    (Every Democratic Party controlled state and municipality.)

  11. The main reason the homeless want to camp out downtown is because they can more easily panhandle vulnerable tourists.

  12. Don't sleep in the downtown.
    Sleep in the shelter home's where medicare facilities is free service and with free meals.

    The NGO's and Christian women like in Blindside movie are very Christiana Augilera baby sitter's and day caring.

  13. This fuckin dude in a suit probably never missed a meal in his life and has no idea what its like to have 2
    dollars to their name not knowing where your next meal is coming from!

  14. Maybe las Vegas should borrow couple million from china and instead of sending it to the Ukraine lets build some Low-income housing and programs to Get mental help, career retraining and rehab programs …… let's start helping the people in our country instead of lining the pockets of the politicians and their families

  15. Make it a crime to be homeless. Really smart. Gotta be a democrat.
    Seriously. Fix the friggnn problem don't make it worse. These people can't afford nothing and your going to fine them a thousand dollars. Dumb.

  16. The democrats have no point to debate so they use lies and temper tantrums to get their way. The sad thing is we have so many fake media outlets that regurgitate the left's lies as facts.

  17. It takes a Republican to take action! where are the Democrats on this issue and others, busy Impeaching the President

  18. Look, we can not have our tourist gambling their SSI checks away all while seeing how they ruined this country with their baby boomer lifestyle. Come on people.

  19. You have 3 types of homeless people. 1 people that have fallen in a bad situation and will do whatever they can to get out of it. 2. People that are fine with being homeless and do nothing about it. 3 people that are mentally ill and they need to be in a mental health facility.

  20. Awesome Oregon bussing homeless to Vegas! Try your luck somewhere else! LMAO!
    Didn't Trump suggest a similar bussing solution? Hahaha!

  21. So fine the homeless a $1000, putting them deeper in debt, how is this supposed to help any homeless individual? (Rhetorical).

  22. We just know what's coming. Thousands of Californians coming and shiting on our streets. Nope. I hear Portland is a lovely liberal haven this time of year.

  23. If you’re marching with a sign, with a body that works and a mind that is sharp enough to protest all day, then you can say “welcome to 7-11”.

  24. Yes, it does sound like jail and fines is a sure sign of criminaling homelessness! Do all the services you say, like other non Democrat cities do, and forget about the fines and jail time. Las Vegas creates homeless people and has spread the problems to other cities with gambling casinos. Lots more than there used to be before legal gambling in Florida!

  25. In the old days, the USSR used to taunt America by pointing out homelessness in America. While obviously the USSR was a flawed political system that was so ineffective that it lasted less than 100 years and fell apart due to internal problems, they weren’t wrong about capitalism’s inability to deal with the homeless population. As the homeless problems grows in America, our American government is being forced to address the homeless problem with direct governmental funding and programs. I don’t think this is a bad thing because the US government is getting our taxes to handle this problem which is in a murky grey area between oppressing people who can’t afford the rising costs housing vs the need to enforce the law such that all people including the homeless are getting proper help.

  26. Great idea! Have protesters take in these people into their Own Homes!!! They can SUPPORT THESE PEOPLE! Let’s see who’s first in line!

  27. Stop enabling the homeless. Some people actually are down on their luck. But a major part of the homeless is just drug addicts that rather beg for free money, go buy their fix for the day and start it all ober again the next day.

  28. They should ship those homeless people right back to Oregon, and do the same with any others bussed in from liberal States trying to get out of dealing with the problems they created for their residents.

  29. Majority of these people suffer from mental illness or drug addiction, or both. So basically we need facilities that were shut down in the late 80's and 90's. Remember when Geraldo did that segment on exposing the mental institutions..That's when all these places were shut down.

  30. This smells of the Democratic Party and the ghost of Saul Alinsky. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton would be proud of the tactics being used. Funny thing. Nevada is a Democratic Party stronghold. Democrats on Democrats. Vice is how Democrats make money. It is natural it would attract parasites. It is natural other cities full of parasites would bus their overflow to Las Vegas. Funny story.

  31. Housing is not a "right". You have the right to get a job and pay rent but nobody can be forced to provide you with a house.

  32. I wish my city would do the same. A homeless man pitched a tent right in front of my gym last week and it took hours for the cops to get him to move a few feet over. Bus the homeless to the neighborhoods of anyone who thinks the homeless can camp anywhere they please and we’ll see what they’ll say.

  33. Cities need to provide housing / camping assistance where there are toilets, water , food and ways to help them. The should have the same level of support as refugees.

  34. Keep building more Free Shelters. Great work in the right direction towards removing Homeless encampments off Public streets for helping maintain Safety, Health, and Sanitation for the City! Helping Homeless with Hiring, Housing, and Health…Awesome! Go Mayor! San Francisco, Oakland, and Los Angeles should begin working towards the same effort.

  35. No resources nor missions in Las Vegas for homeless. Las Vegas is very behind. I'm s good that they want to clean the streets but only 4 missions here. We need finances to be released for more missions.

  36. These homeless people may have lost their retirement from the 2008 home market crash. They weren't able to recover with high tech jobs in demand, instead did drugs to cope with loss.

    I'm willing to pay extra in sales or State income taxes to help get these people off the streets, and into a tiny-home where they'll at least have a community of support

  37. There’s only one reason that these people would rather stay out on the street then go into a shelter it’s because they would rather beg and harass The general public for money a truly homeless person who is cold and hungry that is down on his luck going through rough times and just trying to survive and would love a hot meal and a place to sleep the only ones that would turn that down are the ones who would steal from their mother and sell you their daughter the leaches of society con artists scumbags with serious substance abuse problems

  38. How in the hell is the homeless people going to pay the fine if they don’t have the money that why they are homeless.

  39. Good move. What's crazy is a lot of them WANT to be homeless. Only 2 out 10 work hard to change their circumstances… Trust me, I know.

  40. Michele Fiore I’ve tried to be a supporter of you but now you’re talking like a big government low IQ human.

    You said and I quote they can just choose to walk away and then enforcement walks away.

    Did you hear what you just said where in the F are they gonna walk away to maybe Las Vegas would do better to ship them to Salt Lake City or to Sacramento or St. George Utah.

    You see New York City was just cut shipping thousands of homeless people out west give a bus ticket some money in their pocket and good riddance.
    It seems government officials can never get their head together with what the reality is for some people. …

  41. Decades ago, homeless addicts would purposely commit petty crimes just so they could have a place to stay for the night…

  42. so let me get this straight vegas gets paid money from the feds for the homeless the local officials STEAL that money now declares homelessness illegal ..Aholes running the city MUST BE CRIMINAL DEMOCRATS
