Would YOU let a homeless person live

Faced with an intractable homeless problem, officials in Portland are thinking inside the box. A handful of homeless families will soon move into tiny, government-constructed modular units in the backyards of willing homeowners. (Snip) The project, called A Place for You, is believed to be the first in the nation to recruit stable residents to address a homeless crisis that´s gotten so bad the city last year declared a state of emergency and made it legal to sleep on the street. Portland has an affordable rental shortage of 24,000 units and nearly 4,000 people sleep on the street, in a

Comments:
Total immersion liberalism: city is spending $91,250 each on 200-square-foot sheds in which to house the homeless in people´s backyards. Just picture the ill will this will generate among neighbors, and the immediate threat of violence and destroyed property for the do-gooders who agree to such a thing.

Then the stupid city will hire people to clean up the messes left in the backyards by these slobs. Ever see ANY PLACE left clean by the wonderful lefties?

FTA: "Under the pilot program taking effect this summer, the homeowners will take over the heated, fully plumbed tiny houses in five years and can use them for rental income."

"Renters are an asset to any community," said no one ever. Added benefit of the program will be reduced property values for homeowners, and thus reduced property tax revenues to the city. Potheads are not good at thinking too far into the future.

A bus ticket to a place with "Affordable Housing" would work better.

But this isn´t about housing, it´s about the mentally ill, substance abusers, and layabouts that he rest of us are supposed to subsidize.

In the words of Howie Carr, Anything you subsidize, you get more of.

To answer the headline´s question.... yes, yes I would.

With the following provisions:
The person in question isnt a criminal and doesnt have a mental incapacitation.

The person must want to improve their position in life through their own hard work and perseverance.

The living situation must be temporary

I must have the right to easily, and at no personal cost, evict said person from the property for a multitude of reasons that would be detailed in a rental agreement.

My provisions, restrictions and renter responsibilities would however guarantee that city would never allow it.

Statistically, about 25% of homeless are mentally ill and a little less than half are either mentally ill or are substance abusers. (Grifter, we got no stats for...)

How long before this becomes a serious, life-threatening problem for these idiots? Both of these can be dangerous situations.

And are these really covered with clear plastic, like in the photos? That should be interesting.

Absolutely not. The liability issues could be enormous.

We know welfare simply does NOT work yet liberals keep trying to repackage it and sell it to up again.

As pointed out by others. About half of homeless are mentally ill/substance abusers. Want to bet that the other half won´t be homeless for more than a year or two. They will work their way out of poverty. We used to institutionalize the people who can´t take care of themselves. Let´s stop pretending that these people can be rehabilitated or that it is "societies fault" that they are like this. They are sick or have weak personalities and yes, we may have to warehouse them because they are not fixable. But stop with the guilt. Let´s find a way to efficiently help the intractable poor but without the silliness.

Welfare does work because the beneficiaries don´t have to be bothered with working. Work is for suckers, to paraphrase Seinfeld´s Kramer. Welfare means free housing, food, health & psychiatric care, legal defense and more.

Portland´s feed & care for the homeless policies result in more of them, not less. The almost universal comment of all soup kitchens is "We never knew there were so many homeless people in our parish/town/city". There have to be unused military bases where these sad people can be housed and put to work raising their own food and maintaining their barracks. But that´s also for suckers, not them.

So let me get this straight: Regardless of whether you "want" somebody living in your backyard or not, you´re paying for a tiny house anyway (maybe more than one)?

They wont last five years for the landowner to take over. The people I have seen with free housing are absolute pigs. They dont fix anything and they dont clean. They just use until it is destroyed and then complain about the destroyed place they are forced to live in.

And after 5 years, who will be evicting them? Won´t they have a right to live there in these tiny houses for as long as they desire thus becoming the renters that wouldn´t leave horror show? This is a pant load solution and of course it´s democrats who think of it (most likely female). The home owners are giving up the rights to their property for a social experiment. What will happen to their insurance rates if they agree to do this? There are too many legal implications.

Here´s an idea: Portland residents should register their homes so that when they leave their homes for more 2 days, homeless families could be housed there. Would reduce white guilt when homeowners are enjoying themselves on vacays or weekends in the mountains. Upon their return, homeowners would politely ask these homeless guests to vacate the premises. If these squatters refuse, the homeowners could move into the backyard shack until their case moves slowly through the judicial system.

They will make adorable little meth labs.

I suspect the addition of a "rental unit" will result in increased property taxes for the homeowner.

I´m also guessing the dwelling will either need to be repaired or torn down (at homeowner expense) after 5 years to meet "code".

Opened ended black-hole of liability.

They are simply encouraging more "homeless" people to show up. The liberal Democrats who run those cities don´t care, they just facilitate the "homeless" voting for them, guaranteeing that those liberal Democrats remain in permanent political power, and continue to squeeze as much money as possible from whatever taxpayers remain in those socialist utopias.

Can you imagine the deterated condition that the insides of those tiny houses will be in when they turn them over to the "do-gooder" homeowners in five years? Chances are the city fathers will then condem the tiny houses, and charge the "do-gooder" homeowners to demolish and remove them.

The homeless persons say no and go to a liberal Portland judge and the judge says "no you can´t make these needy people leave!"

Portland is a disaster. A huge number of houses now in low-land portions of Portland are rentals, so some house landlords who add these outhouses to their rental home backyards may see a benefit. Supposedly they´ll be hooked into the sewer, but what about garbage, food, transportation, maintenance, and every other regular function that normal residents deal with but homeless occupants can´t or won´t. What great neighbors they will make.

I live across the river in Washington and visit Portland as little as possible; when I visit the areas where this kind of idea is targeted, the commercial streets nearby are buzzing with tiny restaurants, tattoo and marijuana shops, and various non-english speaking specialty stores. Money is being exchanged to keep this little economy going and it´s not from working at factories or offices. Huge percentage of people on food stamps here; it´s essentially a high-level ghetto where one or two people rent a house, then sub-let to two or three additional occupants, and now added to that will be the outhouse homeless shelters.

Portland´s low-lands used to be a town of beautiful Craftsman houses lived in by owners who took great care and pride. Also used to be very religious, primarily Catholic. It´ a liberal hell-hole where newly discovered victims are categorized in 87 different ways by very liberal politicians enabling their voting block in ways only graduates of failed educational systems could conceive. The population of low-land Portland doesn´t even know why they are called snowflakes. But they do know when their EBT cards are renewed each month.

There are a number of closed military installations across the country. Ft. McClellan, AL and Ft. Chaffee, AR, come immediately to mind.
Move these "homeless" folks to the closed installations, require them to rehab the old barracks and let them live there--work for rent. The states probably won´t care for it unless gov´t $$$ follow the homeless. Better than those tiny, expensive "chicken coops" in peoples´ back yards.

ICE agents eat at restaurant

ICE agents apparently love a good breakfast, and it doesn’t matter who’s making it. United States Immigrations Customs and Enforcement (ICE) officers detained three members of the kitchen staff at a restaurant in downtown Ann Arbor, Mich., on Wednesday morning–but only after sitting down to eat some waffles. Sava Lelcaj-Farah, the owner of Sava’s restaurant, told MLive that the incident was “really sad,” and “scares the whole community.” (Snip) When they were done, they “went into the kitchen to apprehend one of our employees who wasn’t on at the time,” as they suspected he did not have the proper documentation.

But the amount of material in his home has led to fears that he could have built more than one device and and distributed them to other British-based extremists. A security source told the Telegraph: "The worry is there was enough to

The Obama administration knowingly let in at least 16 admitted MS-13 gang members who arrived at the U.S. as illegal immigrant teenagers in 2014, a top senator said Wednesday, citing internal documents that showed the teens were shipped to juvenile homes throughout the country. Sen. Ron Johnson, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, said a whistleblower turned over Customs and Border Protection documents from 2014 detailing the 16 persons who were caught crossing the border. (Snip) The gang members were part of the surge of UAC, or “unaccompanied alien children,” as the government labels them, who overwhelmed the Obama

Los Angeles — A man acted strangely long before he caused a disturbance on a plane that prompted fighter jets to accompany it to Hawaii, but a lack of communication and an airline’s hesitancy to be caught on video booting a passenger could have played a role in allowing him to fly, experts say. Anil Uskanli, 25, of Turkey, had purchased a ticket at an airline counter in the middle of the night with no luggage and had been arrested after opening a door to a restricted airfield at Los Angeles International Airport. Airport police did not notify the airline, but

Earth is likely to reach more dangerous levels of warming even sooner if the U.S. retreats from its pledge to cut carbon dioxide pollution, scientists said. That’s because America contributes so much to rising temperatures. President Donald Trump, who once proclaimed global warming a Chinese hoax, said in a tweet Saturday that he would make his “final decision” this coming week on whether the United States stays in or leaves the 2015 Paris climate change accord in which nearly every nation agreed to curb its greenhouse gas emissions. Leaders of seven wealthy democracies, at a summit in Sicily, urged Trump

After entering the White House in 2009, President Barack Obama went on his famous “apology” tour. Now, Hillary Clinton, having failed to win the White House in 2016, is currently on an “I’m owed an apology” tour. In an interview for an article by New York Magazine published Friday, Clinton has apparently moved past “gracious Hillary” and “relaxed in the woods Hillary” and has now moved into “angry Hillary” mode. (Snip) In the New York Magazine article, called “Hillary Clinton Is Furious. And Resigned. And Funny. And Worried,” the predominant mood is the fury — not the resignation, worry, or her

Hillary Clinton’s inner circle is concerned that the “resistance” that cropped up in the wake of President Donald Trump’s electoral win isn’t embracing the failed Democratic Presidential candidate as their de facto leader. As of late, Hillary has taken to marketing herself as the leader of the anti-Trump resistance, Tweeting about her defeat, haranguing Trump in public appearances and “persisting” despite her loss. It’s clear from Clinton’s Twitter feed, paid speeches, and comments that she wants to lead the mostly female opposition to Trump’s policy agenda. But according to sources close to Clinton’s inner circle, she’s yet again failing in
