    Cruise missiles really can't be stopped if used against the right targets.
    Sonar and ground radar arrays with multiple squadrons already deployed in order to intercept. Even then by the time it can be tracked the interceptors have seconds to take it down.

    Hypersonics are where it's at. Even herder to intercept.

    I don't want to alarm anyone, but Politico.com has broke a story that casts a bad light on conservative Christians and Trump donors. John F. Harris, an avowed lib who spends more calories denying he's a liberal and a Democrat than I take in in cheeseburgers and beer, left the WashPost in 2007 to start Politico because he thought the WashPost was too conservative, wants us to assume this story is NOT a hatchet job.

    In a related story, OJ wants us to believe he's still looking for the real killers of Nicole & Ron while he plays the back nine on the links today.

    Incidentally, Falwell and Family can suck it regardless. I never liked the Moral Majority because they were neither. I know bogus Christians when I smell their stink. But I need Politico's leftists telling me "the truth" about as much as I need a rapist telling me how gently he sodomized me and how lucky I am because he's just doing his job.

    I've read that the Ruskis are way ahead of us on this.

    True, but then, you just want to improve hypersonics again an hour later, right?

    I never thought of the homeless as leeches and mongrels
    used to know the ten or so living in Chatsworth by name and talked to them
    they were sad souls w stories to tell
    anymore they are drugged out beggars and well, mongrels
    the unfortunate and crazy are still in those numbers but geezus
    those ten or so have exploded to and easy 2k and they are scumbag pieces of shit
    I have a childhood friend I still see and give work to that's homeless by choice
    when I ask him questions about things like why these people are hoarding trash collecting freaks he says one thing
    meth

    Not being homeless ( luckily), but definitely a mongrel, I see it much the same.
    I've always felt that in the USA, this should not be an ongoing problem.
    Better to light a candle than curse the darkness.

    It's gotten to be a huge problem where I live.
    Like Diablo's story, there used to be a few of them, and for the most part they were harmless.
    There's a local homeless celebrity around here called "Weedo Frank". Was at a party in the 70s that got broken up by the police, and he was hit over the head with a baton. Guy was never right again, and has wandered the streets for 40 years. Everyone sort of knew him and he was a part of the community. Pretty much always stoned, but never really bothered anyone.

    But now we have hundreds of people here, shitting on the beach, pissing on trees in the park right in front of kids, stealing everything that isn't bolted down. Almost all of them are on meth or heroin.

    It is not a homeless problem.
    Weedo Frank was a homeless guy.
    Seems like a local not a vagrant.
    A vagrant is not a local but a wanderer who drifted in.
    We also have a lot of mendicants now.
    Beggars like they have in all other countries.
    People who rely on charity.
    They tend to mix in with the drifters and those who don't want to work or criminals on the run.
    Homeless people are either 'special' people like Weedo Frank or they are bummers who cant work for whatever psychological, financial or dependence related issue but are not criminals or violent.

    The problem is that some towns ship off their homeless elsewhere where they are no longer locals. This new town then lumps everyone in with the criminals drifters and addicts and busses them off to a bigger city.
    That creates a bunch of people in the water, folks who had to walk the plank and sink or swim.
    The problem is not that there is too many fish in the sea.
    The problem is that we are allowing people to throw chum into the sea in order to attract predators to the feeding frenzy.

    more than one cop has told me that Garcettis solution and policy right is to bus the chronic homeless into the burbs and give them money
    gotta try and clean up to get those olympics
    problem is there are so many the downtown area is still covered in tents and feces
    so disgusting when everywhere you go smells like urine
    thanks Cali politicians you're doing a great job

    In OC, city cops take turns moving the homeless from one park in one city to another park in another city. They sequence it up so that they are cleared out of one city before they do a homeless count in that city. That way, the city council's can say that their City doesn't have as many homeless as that other City. Meanwhile they're moving the same four to five hundred people place to place, and passing it off as somebody else's problem, not theirs. It's nonsense.

    It is all very neat, tidy, political, and totally horseshit. We [my school] offers a once-a-week feed the homeless program, and we've been doing this since 2008, every Thursday, at the same park. The city has asked us a hundred times not to do it. We do it, and I'm proud of the way we do it. But they don't want us to do it, because that would mean they'd have to admit Anaheim has a homeless problem.

    I realize Los Angeles' problem is a lot bigger than Orange County's, but the fucking hypocrisy here is criminal. I don't like the stuff I see from the homeless here either, and you guys are right... They are much more in-your-face, a lot more aggressive, and the drug problem is huge. I used to know five or six of the homeless by name, but those guys are all gone, and the replacements are younger, surlier, & way more aggressive.

    Big problems... Tough Solutions, but those of us who have to live with it are facing a lot more risk than those who pass the buck and live in different neighborhoods than we do.

    in the SFV they have also made it legal to sell whatever kind of street food you want to sell pretty much anywhere
    I'm not exactly having a problem w the free enterprise thing and I love street food anywhere I go
    but how about the people w restaurants that have these people set up right in front of their stores?
    the regulations and taxes they must endure while they are undersold by people w no regs?
    just pitch a tent and start selling tacos or pupusas (yum) and keep all your cash without taxes
    doesn't seem fair does it?
    and how about cleaning up the the trash, food and oil etc all over the sidewalk?
    I'm sure there must be some kind of solution besides turning the streets over to the zombies and illegal (now legal apparently) food vendors
    I find myself walking over bodies laying on the sidewalk in the middle of the day
    other day walking into Lowes I was unfortunate enough to be behind an Rv dweller that had pissed her pants and was covered in filth
    guess she was making her way into the bathroom idk but things like that never used to happen and now its almost the new normal

    The restauranteur has not realized the market has changed and his customers now live elsewhere.
    What he should do is adapt and expand into the sidewalk in front of his business to cater to the new walkup customer demographic.
