I definitely don't. But I wish more people would start thinking it was true.

It makes one wonder, are all the homeless isolated in their homes too?
All the homeless in California in their tents, I think they are in groups of more than 20.

Short answer ,

Nope. Not even close!!!

I am working on a building on 118 ave, right in the sweet spot in Beverly. The sidewalks were packed today, one of the guys doing the siding was ready to snap, he probably got asked at least 20x if he could spare some cash or smokes. Iím not sure if welfare checks came out yesterday but wow what a difference from 2 days ago. All that money handed out in welfare gets put immediately back into the economy. I even had one gentleman come by, obviously concerned for my well being as he offered to sell me face masks. Not even kidding. Saw another nice lady have a crap in the alley right out the back door of the building we are constructing.

Luckily I had my oldest son with me today (17), he was able to see what no education and no work ethic will lead to first hand, I know it was a real eye opener for him.

Why is the most healthy sector of the population being so locked down, yet the drug & diseased folk running
free & rampant, no one bats an eye.

Literally groups of between 3 and upwards of 10 walking everywhere pretty much all day long. I worked until 8 this evening and it was getting worse and worse as the evening went on.

Itís not about no one batting an eye, itís about having no where to put these people. Iím sure if you want to volunteer your home, garage or shed, the constabulary would be most happy....

Or maybe we we should just shoot them??

Apparently there are a lot of empty schools. Pick one and there you go.

You will probably have to demo it later - but it gets them off the streets.

From what I have been reading there are still staff and volunteers. They are saying they have not been given any money or resources to be able to do anything.

Iím misunderstanding you maybe? Schools still have their staff working. (Step daughter is a teacher). They are doing lesson plans and doing online schooling with the kids...

So schools arent empty empty as the staff is still at school. Are you saying that my stepdaughter should babysit these homeless at the school??

Schools still have staff in them. admin is there every day an cleaning staff is there everyday

some staff are working from home... I'm working mostly from home cause my daughters immune system...

I go in super early (5-6 AM) or super late (6-7PM)... so I can avoid people... no one goes into my room.... i wear gloves and exo clothing.

but ya... I could see schools being used if this goes where it may go.

No, I am not suggesting that teachers and educators should start caring for the homeless. I wouldn't want to put those people at undue risk. We will need them when society restarts.

There are agencies that typically deal with the homeless; The Mustard Seed, Boyle Street, Salvation Army, Food Bank, Catholic Social Services, etc. are saying that they have the people but not the money or resources.

I was noting to my wife last week how we donít want to be anywhere near a bottle depot. The bottle pickers will be absolutely rife with Covid-19, all they do is pick up cans and bottles that had the whole of societies lips on them. All day, every day.
