Use Your Words


Dec 2, 2019

A new thing that will be happening at Use Your Words is the commentary of things going on in a more timely manner.   Trump earlier in the year suggested looking into buildings and other programs to deal with the homeless problem in  California (which has 1/4 of the homeless population of the United States) and immediately everyone lost their collective mind about it.  But then a few months later a mayor of a California city asked the governor of California not only for money to build facilities but ALSO to be given approval for forced internment and conservatorship of the homeless population in California.  This is scary on multiple levels.
