Immigrants should home school

I've been on SSI since I was 45

Back in May, hundreds of protestors gathered at the County Office of Education in Linda Vista.

Sex-ed shielding

This is a disturbing article because it is distracting from the complaint of parents: they do not want their children to believe it’s ok to be anything but heterosexual (“Is California sex-ed anti-immigrant?”, City Lights, October 30). This is not about immigration or pornography. It is simply anti-LGBT. If they don’t want their children taught the truth they should home school them, period. Further, it is shameful to use anti-immigrant as a shield for anti-LGBT.

Homeless, take three

I just read the story from John Kitchin in Alpine (“Homeless self-haters,” Letters, October 30). I don’t know where he got his facts at but I can assure you that I’ve been on SSI since the age of 45 because of a medical disability that I received, and I received $1800 a month when I first went on Social Security. Now that I’ve reached the age of 65 and have Social Security benefits, I’m now receiving $2600 a month, and when I first became disabled, I rented an apartment for $800 a month. My neighbor whose son had an alcohol and drug problem, his wife threw him out of the house. So he was homeless for two years and when he finally got himself cleaned up a little bit, he went down and applied for disability insurance and he received $1400 a month, which about $500 of it went to his wife for child support. He found a room to rent at a private house and he was only paying $600 a month for it. So there is help out there if you need it and want it, but most homeless people want to be homeless or they don’t know how to go about getting the resources. But he was very wrong about the amount that they can get it if they want it. Some homeless people don’t even have social security so they can’t get help. So they need social services to give them help, and social services will give them at least $1000 a month to get back on their feet plus a Calfresh card and Medi-Cal, and there’s many, many places you can rent for less than a $1000 a month. you just have to look for them.
