Making America Homeless Again!

The major contributing factor is the filed Obama economy and California's failure to control immigration and policy of handouts to everyone.

President Trump did not make this problem.

Yeah, Trump own this...NOT.

From the link YOU posted Brainiac:

quote:
Housing and Urban Development released its annual Point in Time count Wednesday, a report that showed nearly 554,000 homeless people across the country during local tallies conducted in January .
So if they took the tallies in January of THIS year I am thinking this one belongs to the FOOD STAMP president. Bet it is down next time they check. Nice try. We do appreciate you doing the research for us though.

This is hilarious!

I'm sure the tax increases on the poor in Trump's tax bill will certainly help decrease homelessness.

Why does your hate keep pushing you to lie?

There are no tax increases on the poor in President Trump's tax cut and tax reform plan.

Can't speak for Cali; but as a lifetime NYer I can say that homelessness in NYC has been steadily increasing since the time of Bloomberg/Obama (both beloved) while the blame falls largely on the shoulders of Deblasio/Trump (both not so beloved here)

Economic turmoil has long been turning the tide. As I tell everyone Trump is the outcome not the cause of a destabilized economy and a fractured country. This is a bipartisan mess.


Muleman1994 - 12/8/2017 at 04:15 AM

The economy under Obama was anemic.
- The "jobs created" were part-time and very low wage.
- The GDP for the last eight years was 1.8%

Under President Trump, the economy is rocking.
- Historically low unemployment and with over 2 million new jobs mostly full-time and above a living wage.
- GDP has been over 3% for two consecutive quarters.
- The stock market has risen to historic highs and faster than at anytime in history.
- Consumer confidence is at a 17 year high.

You know, I am sure you had the best of intentions when you posted this. But the fact is the data was collected in January.

Since I am an idiot please explain to me and everyone else what it is in this article that suggests Trump owns this. Should be good. I am betting there will be more name calling involved. May be it is time for you to put your Big Girl Panties on!

pops, an actual idiot, is again taken in by a false headline and an article loaded with assumptions.

“Entire homelessness agency could be eliminated by Trump's budget cuts”
- “could” and note that the article was written months before any budget was actually proposed.

“elimination of the US Interagency Council on Homelessness”
- A council that provides nothing for the homeless.

I haven't read it, nor had the Republican members of the Senate who voted for it.

However, I do know the lowest tax bracket was raised from 10% to 12%.

I also know that as a small business owner my taxes will be at a higher rate than larger corporations that I compete against. I also know that my mileage deduction will be gone, and unfortunately I don't have a private jet that I can write off. I also know that I pay income tax in 3 states, none of which will be deductible anymore. My taxes will certainly be going up. Now, although I'm really not crazy about paying more in taxes, I might not mind if the money was being used to lower the deficit or cutting taxes for those less fortunate than me, but the truth is that 80% of the tax cuts are going to the top 0.5% and it will increase the deficit. That's not being fiscally conservative, that's a political payoff that is being defended by those who will be losing out.


OriginalGoober - 12/9/2017 at 02:28 PM

I'm prolly going to be paying more as well. BUT, if the economy boosts, it may open more opportunity. I remember in the Clinton years anybody who wanted a job found one they were happy with. Alot changed with the rise of corporate globalism but Trump will keep the jobs in the US.

Still not sure why some people think this will help the economy. The people who will benefit the most already have more money than they can spend already. Plus, as far as I know there is nothing in the tax bill or anywhere else that will keep the jobs in the US. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong on this point.

You can call me idiot all you want. It doesn't change the facts. Your article clearly states that the data was collected in January of 2017. Trump didn't take office until January 20, 2017. Seriously now, I like to have fun here poking, prodding & calling the other side names... but in all seriousness you are not very smart are you?

Ford Now Plans to Move Production of Electric SUVs From Michigan to Mexico

By Keith Naughton

December 7, 2017, 8:56 AM CST Updated on December 7, 2017, 1:46 PM CST

Ford Motor Co. is changing gears again in Mexico, shifting planned production of a small electric-powered sport utility vehicle to a plant south of the border instead of a Michigan factory.

Sending the electric vehicle to Mexico, where labor costs are lower, will help the business case for the costly model. It also risks raising the ire of President Donald Trump, who had been sharply critical of an earlier plan by Ford to build a small car factory in Mexico that the company ultimately canceled.

“They have to do what’s best financially and this electric vehicle is not going to be huge” in terms of sales volume, said Michelle Krebs, an analyst with car-shopping website Autotrader. “It’s not like they’re not putting money into the U.S.”

Moving production of the as-yet-unnamed electric SUV to Mexico will allow the carmaker to boost planned output of self-driving vehicles at its factory in Flat Rock, Michigan. Ford is boosting its investment by $200 million and adding 150 more jobs to the Michigan plant as part of the shift, Jim Farley, Ford’s executive vice president of global markets, said in an interview. The driverless car is to debut in 2021.

The SUV to be built in Mexico starting in 2020 will go 300 miles on a single charge and is the centerpiece of a planned $4.5 billion overhaul of Ford’s lineup to add 13 electric or hybrid models, including a gas-electric F-150. Ford has been viewed by Wall Street as playing catch-up to rivals such as Tesla Inc. and General Motors Co., which already sells the battery-powered Chevy Bolt and plans to introduce robot taxis in 2019.

“Our ambition for electrification is not modest,” Farley said. “We’re going for it. We think electrification is a significant shift in propulsion for our industry.”

Ford’s chief executive officer, Jim Hackett, has been accelerating the automaker’s moves in electric and autonomous cars, while announcing $14 billion in cost cuts to improve what he calls the company’s “fitness.” After replacing Mark Fields as CEO in May, one of Hackett’s first moves was to shift a plan to make the Focus small car in Mexico to one of the automaker’s plants in China.

Twitter Silence

Trump did not tweet his displeasure this summer with Hackett’s plan to build small cars in China to be exported to the U.S., nor has he blasted the automaker after news broke Wednesday of the electric SUV’s shift to Mexico.

“Automakers have been out of the line of fire of late with so many other issues brewing in D.C.,” Krebs said, adding that the impact of the president’s planned changes to the North American Free Trade Agreement represents an “unknown” for Ford as it shifts the electric SUV to Mexico.

Farley said it is too early to tell how possible changes to NAFTA could affect Ford’s Mexican output, but he said the automaker couldn’t wait to make a decision on where to build the electric SUV because it goes into production in just over two years. He characterized Ford’s move as “first and foremost an announcement of incremental investment in America.”

No Room

“Our growing ambitions in autonomous vehicles really means we don’t have room” for the electric vehicle at the Flat Rock factory, Farley said. “We had to come up with a different manufacturing strategy for our EV.”

The Wall Street Journal reported the automaker’s change of plans earlier.

The self-driving car Ford will build in Michigan will be a vehicle specifically designed for ride-hailing and delivery services, Farley said and described in a Medium post Wednesday. The automaker will begin testing the car in an unnamed big city next year, Farley said.

“We’re going to go and start to test our business model in a city next year,” Farley said, citing the company’s recent partnership with Lyft. “We’re not just going to be testing autonomous vehicle miles. We’re actually going to be operating our business model in a city, delivering goods and people, live."

Ah yes.
Lets make more cars no one wants.

Assuming you can find a place to plug-in your battery operated toy car remember that the electricity is generated by coal-fired or natural gas fired plants.

We need affordable, functional housing. Pre-fab modular homes and short (no more than 10 floors high preferably 4 floor) buildings. We do not need big ghetto buildings that just become projects, get run down.

We could initiate and apply a sweat equity program like Habitat for Humanity has, let the homeless help to build homes for others, and in return eventually everyone gets a home. Why do we need low bid govt. contractors to do this? Can nobody think outside the box?

For starters, the slumlords in New York City should be held accountable, be forced to fix their buildings, as it is now, they just get cited and nothing happens. They burn and turn their buildings to get poor people out and raise the rent four times as much, those who were forced out have no place to go.

We need viable neighborhoods and communities, the greed, graft would have to be acknowledged and stopped. Most politicians do not have the balls to do anything about it. If the incumbents in your towns don't want to do anything, when they come up for election, vote them out, even if the challenger has no experience, you have to force change to be possible, if the same old lackeys just stay in office, it will not happen.

Vote out the incumbents, unless they are actually doing something meaningful.
