    That's how you checkmate Democrats!
    Wanna defeat Bernie? Just buy a few scientists to claim that free healthcare increases gun ownership, and is bad for illegal immigrants.

      OP
      Funny that you brought up guns.

      I recall NY state dems railing against gun owner's insurance after years of wanting guns to be insured like cars. Turns out insurance was a good idea all along and gun owners embraced it.

      The lesson here is that the easiest way to change some people's minds is to agree with them 🤯

    Shelters should be built on open land far away from the city. Ideally with barbed wire fencing to secure the perimeter. Building shelters in the middle of the city is bad policy - bad for home values, bad for public safety, bad for tourism, and hence bad for the economy.

      Pelosi’s place would work perfectly. There is already a wall around it.

      ...how do people get back on their feet if their shelter is in the middle of nowhere? And wtf barbed wire? It’s a shelter, not a prison.

      You can still get them to where they need to go in the daytime with homeless buses; then pick them up and take them back in the afternoon before curfew. Gotta keep a close eye on them to make sure they don’t fall off the cart again.

      Fall off the cart? Many of them never fell off the cart in the first place. And the daytime buses don’t account for the fact that many of the lower end jobs they can get aren’t 9-5.

    Who wants to turn their house into a negative asset to help the homeless?

      NIMBY is good.
      YIYBY is evil.

    They have every right to complain since homeless shelters are a neighborhood nuisance.
    Well, not the shelter, but the homeless people

    Typical SF hypocrisy. Reminds me of this other noble and pure SF creation:

    This is why people hate environmental regulations.

      Do homeless people even know that? How can they hate without knowing?

      Wasn't referring to homeless people.

      Was referring to the fact that "environmental regulations" are just a vehicle to enact and preserve bad policy.

      In this case, it's a vehicle to do good stuff.
