Well it's sort of like when Trump said we'd just bring all the illegal detainees to Sanctuary Cities and let 'em go there... Oh hell no!! the DemoKrauts wanted no part of that!! It's all just talking points and fluff to churn up their base...

I always like to ask myself why? What is the real reason behind wanting tent cities to pop up in your city?

Sometime when I put on my tin foil hat I begin to think that they want to help portray the conditions in the U.S. as miserable by getting more of these big cities to allow tent cities and so forth to continue to push their communist propaganda that somehow capitalism is failing and conditions are just getting worse.

the question i keep asking too.

Tin foil hat time. But seems like gov wants problems so they can protect us from them while taking away our rights. This is what I am seeing in Ca.

Why do they let murders back out?
Why do they let child rapist back out?

We are from the Gov we are here to protect you.

That is the liberal way of doing things. Do as I say not as I do. Just like Congress and Health Care or Congress numbnuts and gun control. We have our fully loaded locked and loaded guards, but you can't have any guns, they are dangerous.

Bingo. You have to think like a democrat which means you have to think like a mentally disturbed individual.

It will absolutely lead to the exact situation Seattle, sanfran, LA all have in common. Total disaster like every other thing liberals have control of.

Folks in San Marcos get upset with "cops harassing the homeless." Maybe we'll start bussing them to Austin.

Texas State already sends a bus to Austin daily.

So they can then go beg to daddy for money to help pay for shelters, food lines, etc. Money which will then be used to line pockets.

I will give Seattle this... the residents are fed up with the homeless. They have started putting adds out on indeed looking for people to patrol the streets and stop the homeless from robbing people. Paying like 15 bucks an hour lol.

Had the misfortune t drive thru there the other day. I've never seen so many Beto's stickers in my life. What used to be one of the greatest cities in this state has become one of the worst in, & that all happened in less than 20 years. It's a sad deal for sure.

I just went into Austin. Lots more homeless camps under the bridges than I last remember.

Lets just support them like we do losers who don't want to work... That will show them!

Abbott is a gutless terd.

He recently signed a bill taking away cities rights to impose ordinances about what building materials can be required on homes and businesses. All under the guise of affordable housing.

Effective Sept 1 any legal building material under the national building code is legal for use anywhere.

They’re gonna find somewhere for them alright....

So i heard on the radio yesterday that the City of Austin spends 30 mil a year on the homeless. They also said that Austin has right at 2200 homeless. Thats 13,300 per year on each person living on the streets and they want to spend much much more.
Can someone give me an example of a liberal idea that actually had a benefit to someone and why anyone would trust a democrat to make a wise decision

Most that trust are young and stupid. They trust with their feelings and not their brain.

Actually that comes out to 13,636.36 per person. But who's counting. I'd be willing to bet very little actually filters down to the homeless. These are the payoff programs used to filter money into somebody's pocket.

They sure fought hard to keep the City of Austin from getting and outside audit.
