The dream for a permanent campsite in Santa Cruz for homeless people got a lift Thursday with nearly 100 people attending a public forum at Santa Cruz High School to explore the proposal.

Somebody needs to tell Brainchild Brent that a campground (on somebody else's property) is never going to be the "Magic Cure" for Heroin addiction, Methamphetamine, Alcoholism, and Mental illness.
Next we'll have Robert Kahnjob and Becky Whackjob demanding that "WE" pay for all kinds of items, like Porto Potties, showers, dumpsters, and "FREE" Medical care.
While they contribute their usual nothing.

how about firing the people racketeering our social services, like the bukharians and filipino's and pashtun--maybe that will help solve the homeless puzzle-the camp is a bad idea right now, but if the section 8's go financially with the economic shortcomings from std/drug healthcare bills, the camp might be the only solution--the best solution in my opinion is the capsule hotels--the if the pashtun and filipinos, caribbean's get their hooks in the "camp", we are talking GIANT headaches.

No Brent, we don't want Santa Cruz turned into a Woodstock-sized Bumfest, so a 50 year old unemployable loser who lives in Mommy's basement can think he finally accomplished something.

And we know you haven't got any kind of Assets to cover the bottomless pit of Liability it would create.

theirs too many probables-we got a std/drug epidemic right now--but if the section 8's go? that's the only option really-or a zoonotic conflict-which are nasty!

If I had my choice between a shotgun machete house burning zoonotic conflict or a "camp", I'd chose a centralized camp and if the section 8's go,we are looking a zoonotic conflict if their sewer wastes are not centralized and their diets are mostly veggie.

TBSC = Talking Bigot Sentinel Crowd.

They are out in force. Nearly 130 comments already. Not one person against it has an ounce of compassion or any argument other than that 'they' need to leave town. The sub-humans are certainly not the homeless here.

It's not about compassion, it's about people taking care of themselves. If you can't take care of yourself, why should anyone else? I see able bodied 20-30 year old males crawling out of the bushes with their stuff EVERYDAY. Is it the communities responsibility to house those that stick a needle in their arm or smoke rock/crystal? F NO. Live in the dirt if that's what you want to do with your life, your life = your responsibility.

Argument against a Sanctuary Camp.
1. It didn't work the last few times
2. People cannot control others
3. Ownership of personal responsibility
4. Anti-establisment, yet they need the establishment to house and feed them
5. No jobs, no money, no housing
6. Addiction
7. Mental disease
8. Physical disease
9. Disabled and in need of federal assistance, not local
10. If you're against it, you lack compassion and are a bigot

Hey Brent, instead of trying to destroy this beautiful place by promoting a Woodstock-sized Bumfest, why don't you try to learn some Marketable job skills?

Then maybe someday you can be a productive member of society, and move out of Mommy's basement and into your own living arrangement.

You're nearly 50 years old, don't you think it might be time to let go of her skirt?

Creating a bottomless pit of Liability for other people is NOT any kind of "Accomplishment".

And no, posting stupid videos on Youtube with a borrowed 80's vintage camera doesn't make you Steven Spielberg, any more than BJ Whackjob's blitherings on public TV make her a "Television Producer"

So stop with the "Documentary Filmmaker" bullshit, and try to do something useful with what's left of your wasted life.

Let's see how long before it gets deleted?

What a surprise.....

The only thing that vanishes faster is when you suggest to Robert that he get out his Multi-million dollar trustfund and DO SOMETHING!!!

Placerville homeless camp - fail

Seattle homeless camp - fail

Portland homeless camp - fail

Repeating the same action over and over and expecting a different result is an indication of insanity.
