Dumps Over Trump’s

Advocates respond to President’s plan to fold tents and house homeless

“President Trump said during his visit that he wants to ‘help’ the homeless in California by tearing down their tents and moving them into government housing,” said Homeless Advocate James Hardknox. “And it’s true that there are those of us who have been agitating for increased government assistance in finding homes for these people. But when Donald Trump offers to help, it should be enough to give any decent person pause. And after pausing, I realized that Janis Joplin sang it best: ‘Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose.’ Which means that when you’ve got nothing left to lose, you’re truly free. And freedom is what America is all about. How dare Trump try to deny these people their freedom by taking away their chosen lifestyle and forcing them to live in some square - and I do mean square - building? And now Imperial Beach is prohibiting people from sleeping on city property, including sidewalks. Sleeping, like skateboarding, is not a crime!”

Except the Supreme Court has ruled last year municipalities cannot criminalize sleeping in public. So the imperial beach ordinance is moot. Shame on this so-called advocate for not knowing that.

Oct. 5, 2019

It's satire, not real news. Note the name of the advocate: James Hardknox. Now do you get it?

Oct. 6, 2019

I do, still think it’s silly for a city to enact an ordinance clearly in violation of Supreme Court precedent.

Oct. 10, 2019

ceehound61 I asked you in another post in the Reader to cite your source for the Supreme Court ruling you mention.

Oct. 10, 2019

Does ceehound619 have a dry sense of humor and he's "countering" the satire with his own satire? I'm beginning to wonder.
