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)?

I think I´d just demand the house and be done with it!!

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.

Karim Cheurfi, a 39-year-old, was known as a threat to the country and described as an ´extremist´ by authorities, who had placed him on a watch list. It´s believed he was radicalised while serving a 20-year jail sentence for attempting to kill two officers in 2001, before his release last year. In February, the terrorist

If sea rise weren’t scary enough, scientists have now found another phenomenon threatening the Florida Keys and other coasts protected by reefs: a vanishing ocean floor. In a study published Thursday in the journal Biogeosciences, a team from the U.S. Geological Survey documented a dramatic erosion of the sea floor around coral reefs, ranging from a few inches to nearly three feet since the 1930s. Combined with sea rise, the disappearing bottom means the hazards facing coasts — storm surge from hurricanes and even erosion from everyday waves — will likely be worse than now projected, especially for the low-lying Keys.

The number of asylum seekers fleeing to Canada from the US in the wake of Trump´s immigration crackdown has soared since the weather turned warmer. In the first three months of this year, 3,605 people have crossed the border from south to north, which is more than the total for the whole of 2013. The figure has grown month-on-month from 920 in January to 1,465 in March and the number of those detained for entering the country illegally has tripled in that time. (Snip) Canada is on track to see the highest number of asylum claims in six years,

Britain´s new top police officer last night said diversity was at the heart of her role as she confirmed she was in a same-sex relationship with a colleague. Cressida Dick, 56, said she believed ‘passionately’ that every modern police force must represent the communities it serves. The Scotland Yard Commissioner said there was ‘some way to go’ for the country’s biggest force to have the confidence of ‘all our public’. (Snip) Speaking after becoming the first woman to lead British policing, Miss Dick pledged to drag it into the ‘brave new world’ of 21st-century technology.

Disturbing cellphone video posted to Facebook shows a group of teens stomping a teenage boy as he lies in the middle of the street in Coney Island, Brooklyn. The video is believed to have been taken during a big brawl outside the Luna Park amusement area on Surf Ave. near W. 10th St. about 5 p.m. Sunday. Teens punched, kicked and leapt in the air to slam the hapless victim with their feet as he lost consciousness, the video shows. At least seven different teens attacked the victim. “Today in Coney,” a Facebook user who posted the video captioned it, with three emojis

Donald Trump has a “dangerous mental illness” and is not fit to lead the US, a group of psychiatrists has warned during a conference at Yale University. Mental health experts claimed the President was “paranoid and delusional”, and said it was their “ethical responsibility” to warn the American public about the “dangers” Mr Trump’s psychological state poses to the country. (Snip) James Gilligan, a psychiatrist and professor at New York University, told the conference he had worked some of the “most dangerous people in society”, including murderers and rapists — but that he was convinced by the “dangerousness” of Mr

The Obamas have been taking a much-deserved break from politics since moving out of the White House. But next week, it´s back to reality. President Barack Obama will be in Chicago on Monday to discuss community organization and civic engagement. As we all know, the Obamas have impeccable taste in food, so it wouldn´t be surprising to see the former president surveying the Chicago dining scene when he returns stateside. Will he visit the renowned Alinea? Or return to an old Obama favorite, Spiaggia? Last September, my husband and I had a chance run-in with Barack and Michelle, who were in New York City for their last visit as

Steel yourselves. Barack Obama’s about to emerge from the shadows — and first stop, University of Chicago. Why there? No doubt, it’s one of the more receptive breeding grounds for his particular brand of activism — the activism he’ll be touting to malleable student-age minds while engaging in, as his people called it, a “conversation about community organizing and civic engagement.” Make no mistake about it. This is about teaching the upcoming generation, loud as it already is about all topics that offend, to get even louder, even Leftist Prouder, and to — here’s the gist — use that Leftist

A Chicago artist has finished his mural of Michelle Obama in a colorful image that features the former first lady as an Egyptian queen. The painting by artist Chris Devins was completed Friday on the southeast corner of Chappel Avenue and 74th Street in South Shore. That´s two blocks from the former first lady´s childhood home at 7436 S. Euclid Ave. and across the street from Bouchet Elementary, which she attended when it was known as Bryn Mawr School. "I wanted to present her as what I think she is, so she´s clothed as an Egyptian queen. I thought that was appropriate,"

Outraged Muslims are reportedly planning a May 1 demonstration at the Amazon headquarters in Seattle, Washington. The company is under fire after several Muslim security guards demanded time and space to pray five times a day, while on the job. The guards contend in a lawsuit filed this week that the subcontractor who employs them does not appropriately accommodate their faith and retaliates against those who speak out. The Service Employees International Union and the guards allege that Amazon grants high-earning tech workers conference rooms to pray in, but they do not provide the same accommodation for contracted security officers

A Harvard University office devoted to LGBT issues reportedly has issued a flier telling students that gender identity can change as frequently as “day to day.” The flier from the Ivy League schools BGLTQ Student Life office, headlined “Get the facts about gender diversity,” informs readers that “Sex assigned at birth and gender identity are not necessarily the same,” Campus Reform reported Thursday. The flyer adds that “gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, hormonal makeup, physical anatomy, and/or how one is perceived in daily life.” The document also seems to categorize speech that challenges or disagrees with transgenderism as “violence.” “Transphobic misinformation is a
