America has been subsidizing the DBS family since WWII, when DBS's father first started accepting welfare benefits.

Now fast forward to today, and the family still relies on public assistance to get by.

I propose we build a sanctuary camp and house the DBS family there.

It will save us, the taxpayers, a ton of money in the long run.

Maybe moving them would also help clean up that Catcrap Gardens place where DBS lives.

I heard that the sewer system there cannot accommodate the full needs of DBS.

This thread was initiated by John Colby, section 8 dwelling, two decades running, unemployed parasite. John is well known in the area for writing letters to different public agencies excoriating their behavior and making demands. The mayor of Santa Cruz chastised him for diverting monies for the homeless for his own personal agenda.
28 of his neighbors presented a petition to the management company of his apartment complex demanding his eviction claiming he was a child molester. SCPD doesn't answer his calls because he's a known crank and cries wolf to often.
You can verify a lot of this if you just Google John Colby Santa Cruz or take a look at his LinkedIn page and you'll see just exactly how nutty he is.

John, in a current Topix thread was voted less in touch with reality than a box of rocks by a 5-1 margin.

This thread was started by the TOPIX "roboblogger", and the project is proposed by Brent Adams.
----------

Something like this was tried here back in the '90s on the land that is now the Page Smith Transitional Housing Project. It was popularly called "the back 40". It was a mess.

It remains a good idea if if iffff we can learn from the mistakes of the past, and it is managed correctly.
