What are the bill of rights that they are actually proposing?

Sounds good. I'm curious to see what it says. Obviously, I can't support a freedom that involves a violation of someone else's freedom, but if it passes that rule, I will support it!

Los Angeles is the Homeless capitol of the nation, we need to do something right here at home. It is criminal how many people walk the streets un-noticed and uncared for in our country. It could be you out there, then would it matter?

I do have the experience of living hand-to-mouth; being a homeless youth; discrimination due to lack of multiple forms of ID and so on. It makes getting out the ditch so much harder, especially when you have "pulled yourself up by the bootstraps" so often that they broke a while back.

I live in CA, and while far from ideal or not as humane as can be, I am watching a friend suffer needlessly in CO where even the usual agencies or methods of getting help are not available. I am suddenly aware...

I live in CA, and while far from ideal or not as humane as can be, I am watching a friend suffer needlessly in CO where even the usual agencies or methods of getting help are not available. I am suddenly aware of how complacent I have become regarding homelessness or nearly so outside my bubble.

Chronic homelessness needs to be addressed here as well as catching folks before they fall deeper in the hole because it is so much harder to get back out.

While the housing market has picked up, there are still many properties out there under Bank management from foreclosure.

I would like to see a partnership with Habitat for Humanity and/or other civic groups make a coordinated effort to get people into those homes. They would be paying rent by taking care of the property and maintaining it, reporting anything that is not up to code.
while oversight would be performed by the coalition.

The community would do better:
The neighbors wouldn't have an eyesore or a magnet for mischief and such and their property values would improve.

No one should be homeless in a country as rich as the United States claims to be!

That people are even allowed to be homeless is a disgrace when there are people with more than one home, and when there are buildings empty for all or most of the time. People rattle on about human rights - if they don't include the right to have shelter, food and essential health care we have to ask what sort of morals they're really based on. The US could provide the basic necessities of life for all its citizens for a tiny fraction of what it spends on warfare - instead the land of the...

The US could provide the basic necessities of life for all its citizens for a tiny fraction of what it spends on warfare - instead the land of the "free" is based on the profit of a few over the welfare of the majority, with the poor encouraged to believe they're just the millionaires who haven't made it yet. It all makes perfect sense for those who don't give a f*** about anyone else.
