People cry about cities and the county not doing enough for the homeless. If you take the time to check it out, things are being done. Maybe not enough but things are being done.
So, people vote for the one who cries loudest about homelessness and who say something needs to be done about it. These politicians claim they are going to spend more and solve the problem. Yet, when there is something offered that people might actually be able to help with the homeless problem, those same people complain, call names, and make unfounded accusations.
I know. It IS easier to sit back, put the blame on the politicians (especially the current one in office and vote on the new candidate who is the only one who can take it all away), and do nothing except change the channel.
Does it really hurt that much to listen, find out, and maybe even help out in some small way? Heck, after listening to the facts and information, people might really have something to complain about…or see that lots of money IS being spent on homelessness and plans are being initiated to spend more to help find a way to get these people off the streets.
Please don’t listen to Rex’s suggestion that people carry guns illegally and shoot the homeless if they think they are robbing you. If you are that worried about the highly unlikely event that you will be robbed by a homeless person, carry mace or one of those items that shoots pepper spray or non penetrable objects. Everyone should be more concerned about being robbed by Rex’s idiotic programs such as the Eye in the Sky, Ecolution, Kensington, Lancaster Choice Energy, Traction Seal, and all the lawsuits on account of his big mouth.
This says LA County. Not Lancaster. I’m definitely not sticking up for Rex, just want to know why this is about him and Lancaster instead of the entire AV Community.

Community listening is about as stupid as it gets….this liberal BS never ends. Does that POS Parris go for this?
Actually listening to the people that are going to be affected by upcoming programs seems ‘as stupid as it gets’ to you?
Our country was founded by liberals. Were they stupid, too?
Kim Hamm says
You silly POS
Apparently, you DO think that our founding fathers were stupid. Thank you for clearing that up.
“Our country was founded by liberals.“
Our country was founded by constitutionalist and federalists. liberals would like nothing more then to destroy these founding documents and what they stand for.
The only thing liberals in the past can associate with is Jim Crow, racists, and pro slavery confederates.
Dumbest thing I’ve heard yet here at the times, hands down!
