Thank Dog it's Monday! Oh what the heck someone out there has to be grateful it's Monday. Concerning the ongoing issue of the Homeless there's a group out there saying "Vote for us! Vote for us! Get rid of the current Mayor and Silly council Vote for us and we will get rid of the Homeless for you." Sure you will with the governments blessing huh? Because after all (this group) will be the City government but what about the Feds and the County? What are you going to tell them? Oh yea, "That you put them in care institutions." Where are these care institutions at exactly? Whoever this group of people is these comments are from are anonymous comments, so why should these people be believed? You can't force people into institutions who are not breaking the law. Last time I checked this was a free country people are free to come and go as they wish. Is this group going to promise Santa Barbara's Homeless a trip to Paradise? They are already here! Is this group that wants your votes and are willing to get rid of the Homeless and other problems going to be a bigger pain in the Ars than problem homeless people? Their proposition reminds me of the "Don't ever take a candy bar from a cell mate in prison". The deal might look sweet at first but there ain't nothing sweet about bending over for Bubba. If people are thinking of changing the laws to suit their pleasures well that takes time and they don't always get passed. The State Government might not like a law that states if they mess their pants in public that they have to live in a care institution for 10 years. Especially since there are not a lot of available places for the homeless to go to the bathroom when they NEED to go the bathroom. I have been here in Santa Barbara for 33 years and for as long as I have been here it's been like watching the Wiley Coyote and Roadrunner, it seems to me that there are many answers but only one way the Powers that Be want them to go. It has more than likely always been that way maybe that is why people don't really care when a homeless person dies a mysterious death. Not even the people that make money in the homeless industry seem to care when a homeless person is murdered if they did there would have been a lot more protest over the deaths of Gloria, Ross, and Gregg, I'm sure there has been many others but those 3 always come to mind. The injustice of it all doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results, lock em all up in Care Institutions, what, forever? The rest of their lives? Until they get well? What exactly is a Care Institution? I forgot to axe that this time around, I think I've axed before short term memory loss alcoholism will do that to you I think some of you know what I'm talking about. I remember when I was a young'un a lot of parents that could not understand their children and what they was going through put them in institutions. Psyche hospitals, military schools, group homes, some couldn't afford those places so they just threw their kids out on the street, some just moved and didn't tell their kids they were going, some kids had to take care of their parents because either the parents were hooked on something or mentally ill themselves. Reagan helped by kicking everyone out on the street some of these people he booted became mentally ill, drug addicted, or alcoholic parents. A lot of their kids and Grand Kids are out on the streets today that is why some blame Reagan. I'm sure he is not the only reason why people are homeless today but he probably owns a chunk of it. I know alot of the people that are out there living on the streets in their middle ages were tossed into wacko hospitals as kids and never got over their experiences, many of them were normal when they went in but SNOT anymore and they refuse to take meds and it's their choice as long as they ain't breaking the law. I have a relative right now out there on the streets of America worked hard all her life refuses help got bugs in her hair, scrap in her pants, loonier than a tune. Everyone in the family has tried to help her So called Care Institutions fill em up full of medication tie em to a Wheelchair in a Posey watch em vegetate and scrap in their shoes, when they start to stir a little give em another shot of Thorazine and tell em how much you care. They do that in our local Care Institutions Nursing Homes. What a bunch of Bull Manure!

Well that is all outta me for now I'm still wondering about those so called Care Institutions where are they? What are they? They don't exist there is no such thing as a Care institution they are unfinished projects in someone's imagination kinda like the North County Jail but at least that's getting built slowly. Institutions maybe if they call them Care Institutions someone will think they care, even though they don't. Have a great Monday and Dog Willing We will see you on Wednesday.
