#1 New legislation titled the "Homeless Bill of Rights" by Democratic Assemblyman Tom Ammiano of San Francisco is meant to keep communities from rousting people who have nowhere to turn.
A suggestion for Tom - renovate your basement and let a few 'homeless' live there for a stretch, then by all means, file the bill.

#2 It reads "homeless bill of rights" but what it actually is, is a squatters bill of rights. Squatting in foreclosed or vacant properties has become a rather large issue in the Atlanta area. Squatters are now, believe it or not, subleasing to other squatters. Imagine the surprise when you walk into your newly purchased foreclosure and find someone living there and discover you cannot remove them!

FTFY, P2k - at least in the instance of "rights" and squatters.

#7 Again, ZB? When did they ever stop?
I've just about given up on the USA's future. This is the attitude that has replaced the Mussolini, Lenin, et. al. philosophy for control and dictatorship. There is no specific creed to argue against just a creeping infection that serves the purposes of that elite that wants to control you and everyone else.

#8 Again? They never did stop. just another example. They believe if they promote ideas like this. eventually the entire US will follow. Worlds ninth largest economy must be right, right? Err, left.

#9 The homeless have a Bill of Rights. It is the same one the rest of us have.

#10 John and Ken on KFI had Ammiano on and ripped him a new one. He said homeless shouldn't/wouldn't be punished or fined for public defecation, urination, or nudity....but don't YOU try it! He's a lib idiot, fully representative of his district
