    You're on an island of uncommon good sense surrounded by a sea of Common Sense. Common sense is what's wrong with this country the common sense is no good.

    If he sold his million dollar home in Austin and actually moved in with those he cares so much about, I might give the guy some credit. Until then, he's just another guilt ridden White Liberal, making a living off his virtue signalling.

    Previous history has him doing the same type of work in Philadelphia. I guess he ran out of other's people's money there and needed new hosts to keep his career going.

    If the homeless of today were more like the 'hobos' of the 30's I would have more sympathy. The homeless today, with very few exceptions, are mainly drug addicts and mentally ill. The aid these cities give is enabling drug addiction and is doing nothing to help the mentally ill. It brings the price of higher crime rates and it costs too much to jail them all.

    Where's the monument to the residents that have to live with a growing crime rate?

    "Wouldn't the money spent on the statue been better spent on warm clothes and food for the homeless?"

    I hope this is tongue in cheek?

    Statue - Hell no!

    Homeless, same thing.

    With few exceptions, the so-called 'homeless' are right where they want to be.

    Crazy, drugged out or drunk people don't get my sympathy.

    Alright, the crazy...a little bit, but even they don't merit setting up shop in my neighborhood in their reeking tents and human filth, piling up their trash to include used needles.

    The money would be better spent on voluntary euthanizing....hell, they don't care for life so help em out of it.
