Homeless in Hawaii HD

Homeless in Hawaii...the ongoing problem in Paradise...Like any other city, there are homeless...but here in Paradise they are out in the open year around and have taken up camp in many of the beach parks. It's not only a problem in Hawaii but a problem across the United States that is getting worse! The goverment continues to cover it up and push these people aside as the standard of living continues to go down, in what use to be, the greatest Country in the world...no more.

What I wonder is?

Is an economic disaster ( Emergency ) not as bad as say a Hurricane (natural disaster - Emergency )?

I mean people in the Gulf area who lost homes got FEMA help and housing until they could get into other permanent housing.

I mean can't they reuse those trailers that were sent to the gulf region?

They aren't a one time use and dispose item, are they?

The thing about a hurricane is that it is indiscriminate. Hurricanes don't care how much money you make. Those that have enough money or have enough money and some place to go leave. Those that can't don't. But, you cannot make journalists shut up or pretend this type of devastation didn't happen.

The trailers used in Katrina are, in fact, unusable. From 2008: FEMA received 11,000 health complaints and moved more than 4,000 families. About 19,000 Katrina units remain occupied, down from about 143,000.

I’ll tell you Matt, I don’t know how I feel about this video. The young man seems to be a caring person, the film is reveling, but he seems most upset that the city doesn’t do more to make them invisible. Take away the carts, the only thing in the world these people have, make them take down the tents when you mow. He seems a genuinely caring person, and it is possible that the right has been so effective at planting the anti-poor message that he is unaware. But no doubt the film is disappointing on many levels.

of course hawaii has people living outside. cost of housing is too high, but the welfare state of hawaii attracts many free loaders. conclusion, don't go to live in a high cost state.

I'd think if a man can drive at night, there could be many worse places to be homeless than Hawaii.

[-] -2 points by MattLHolck (16833) from San Diego, CA 2 years ago

like where it snows

[-] -2 points by SmeggitySpooge (78) 2 years ago

I've always believed that people who choose to live in an area anything resembling several months of frozen hell, very well should.

And that they are dumbfoundingly stupid.

I better get going

There are no homeless in a Democratic administration. The depth and horror of the Obamavilles growing across the country simply won't be reported on until a Republican is president. Homelessness is a Republican problem, not Democratic one.

If you mean republicans largely created the problem, I could go along with that. But I don't know as I would trust them to clean-up the mess they made.

he was being sarcastic. you fell for it. your partisanship is showing.

in the US, the unemployed don't count

no one wants to house the unemployed

only give them jobs

[+] -6 points by DKAtoday (25086) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Yeah. Now if we could get them to offer jobs in the 1st place that actually paid a living wage. But no that would be just asking too much.

[-] 0 points by engineer4 (352) 2 years ago

Who is "them" in your question?

[-] -2 points by MattLHolck (16833) from San Diego, CA 2 years ago

jobs will leave the country

[+] -6 points by DKAtoday (25086) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Oh . . . yeah right.............hmmmmmmmmm.

I know they could be put to work building bridges for minimum wage.

SEE...........problem solved and the wealthy corrupt could sleep peacefully at night knowing they helped solve the homeless and unemployed problems in one fell stroke.

[-] 2 points by GypsyKing (9780) 2 years ago

That's right, but they don't want to. It keeps working people scared, and afraid to organize.

[-] -2 points by MattLHolck (16833) from San Diego, CA 2 years ago

better than the san diego emergency welfare program

they'll put the broke to work for much less than minimum wage

Getting in practice for putting the prison for profit captive populations to work. Start now build up a few calluses and it won't feel so bad when you go large scale slave labor. Just give everyone a chance to get used to the idea.

as I thought

Start now build up a few calluses and it won't feel so bad when you go large scale slave labor. DKAtoday

the repression of the broke by paying them less than minimum wage

would prepare the broke for prison labor latter

it also set an example that it is OK to pay less the minimum wage

and should be illegal

..

anyway on "the right to have a job"

that the only way to solve the economic problems is for everyone to be put to work

[-] -3 points by MattLHolck (16833) from San Diego, CA 2 years ago

The navy could transport them

but homeless is bad in a lot of places

Paradise for some truly can be Hell for others. Everyone count your blessings.
