"Homeless camp" "tent city"

I think Mayor McGinn truly has a very strong humanist streak in caring about all the people in Seattle and I think he sees his election as a ... message that he needs to address the needs of folks who've been ignored in the past,"

I've got another plan. How about we shut down DSHS and replace it with free weekly one-way bus service to Sacramento.

"Like welfare, kids? Ahnold has great welfare."

40% budget cut and no more juggalos.

Had them here in Redmond, Twice. You can keep them there and raise your taxes to pay for them....

They had one in Spokane 3 years ago that was right across from Stevens Elementary School.

The neighborhood residents were pissed off, got it shut down after a couple months. Now people are trying to get permission from the city to start another one back up.

I am going to try to get one of these. Seriously. Great for overnights at the track. Hell, I'll take a dozen if I can get them.

Last summer there was one set up at church about 6 blocks from house in Redmond. There were several houses broken into during this time. I started locking things up during the day.

They would be great for LCR. If a knife fight breaks out next to you, you merely roll it to a quiet area and go back to sleep. No stakes or poles to hassle with.

Or you could hook one up to an ATV and start your own Irish Bog Racing & Camping Adventure. Could even turn it into a series on PBS.

Godamitt, I called these people this morning trying to get one and they failed to mention it comes with a T shirt.

The homeless get all the breaks.

Attention whores, laughed pretty hard when I saw one face down on the ground with a cop cuffing him while another cop was searching his bag, happened somewhere around 1st on Jackson.

All the beggars in Seattle get really damn annoying, I don't want people to encourage them to stay homeless.

This is the society we now live in. Honesty and hard work are punished while sloth and under achievement are empathetically rewarded. Just so you know, it won't be getting better anytime soon.

I don't think it will be getting better, at least not in this area (Damn yuppie soccer moms everywhere) but I can always dream...

Sounds like they're a non-profit by paying the bulk of the profit to themselves as pay

It's philanthropists and taxpayers that get scammed by paying the high price for this "ruggedized" version of a shopping cart.

What's wrong with a shopping cart and pitch roof tent anyway? Cheaper to get (from any grocery store), and add some tarp (building construction site at night).
