    Do you REALLY believe that or even have proof? Just asking not trying to incite anything.
    If anyone on Oahu is NOT happy , feel free to trade places with me.

      While I can't introduce you to an example, there's been mention in the various local media and plenty scuttlebutt amongst those intimately familiar with street life about it. And Hawaii does it in reverse. You can google - hawaii homeless plane fare, and get a start on the various scoops.


      Meanwhile, does anybody have positive issues to contribute to the discussion? So far it's merely been how my plan won't work, and my showing the errors in such thinking.

        Re: Homeless solutions

        So, Honolulu was largely without vital access to the net and basic communications yesterday, and maybe even more important services, because of our needlessly rampant and heartless homeless situation http://www.staradvertiser.com/news/b...186990051.html

        Not that my plan would completely eliminate these and similar possible occurances, but it'd surely lessen the chances since many of them would take advantage of a decent shelter, especially if HPD would keep these people out of those areas instead of raiding them just twice a year.

        Two years in and what has our 'homeless czar' Pt. 2 done other than take food out of hungry mouths?

          Re: Homeless solutions

          Lot's of negative op-ed action recently in the SA, mostly snowbirds and Waikikian's moaning about seeing/smelling the homeless and how tourism will surely suffer, plus the currator at the HAoA whining at length about somehow how it's the homeless' fault at Thomas Square for the park's overall less-than-stellar appearance and welcominess.
          My little solution substantively helps all concerned.

            Re: Homeless solutions

            More SA op-ed grumblings today about seeing the homeless...

            Front page article supporting much of what my plan does and fiscal facts I've noted, but there's nobody willing to merely cough up the many roofs needed for others like Christine http://www.staradvertiser.com/s?acti...y&id=189781761 The problem I see with the program linked is that most that will qualify for it must be mentally ill, well, the mentally ill can only handle being normal for so long and then they gotta do their thing which usually get's them back into trouble. This girl mentioned in the article, Christine, I know she can pull it off for good, but most can't and I'll be suprised if even she does. At least somebody is working on a sensible project that can help, but I'll bet my plan works better.

              Re: Homeless solutions

              Today the SA itself opines that the homeless visual blight must go, and while applauding the 100,000 Homes project (which has about 10 homes so far) they too offer no further solutions or effective roads towards achieving any. Shame on our media megaphones, the so-called voice of the people for ignoring deeper truths that need to be addressed and instead add to the war cry of merely sweeping away the problem from sight. http://www.staradvertiser.com/s?acti...y&id=189959881

                A mere signature on a check could change all that.

                Mr. Ellison you have bought a whole island.

                Now let us see some positive change.

                  Yeah, we're not talking big bux in today's money, the problems are mostly quite solveable.

                    Re: Homeless solutions

                    Job opening
                    Position; assistant to the Gvnr.'s Homeless Czar
                    Job discription; the Czar doesn't seem to be doing much, so this may be a very cruise job, unless it's your job to explain things to the press/public
                    Yearly pay, $85K a year

                    I just talked to a homess guy who actually has doable and cheap plans towards improving the homeless problem, similar to my views, think they'll hire him, or me?

                        The SA op-ed's had another comment on the homeless, this one by Craig Nahm of Hawaii Kai actually used common sense, compassion, and basic decency as a proposal http://www.staradvertiser.com/s?acti...y&id=191761471

                        To bad his fellow residents in the wealthier districts of Oahu are having such a hard time putting any of their money where there complaint filled mouths are, now we can spend way more $$$ getting nowhere in solving the most pressing issues instead of supporting real solutions http://www.staradvertiser.com/s?acti...y&id=191779621

                          Re: Homeless solutions

                          The SA/Our View is hot on one-sided opinion, nastiness, and misleadings today re the homeless http://www.staradvertiser.com/s?acti...y&id=191951381
                          They say new bills aimed at cluttered sidewalks is a sign of elected officials frustrations, and that the clutter is trying the patience of isle residents as well.
                          Well boo friggin hoo. It's decades past time to have sensibly addressed the problems that have lead to the current situation, but instead all we get are more narrowminded crybabies lamenting their precious views are distorted by those darn tent dwellers and such, like op-ed submitters Carol Rothouse (Waikiki) and Mary Hardy (Kakaako) http://www.staradvertiser.com/s?acti...y&id=191934061
                          Mary absurdly wishes those anti-rail supporters would use thier time/$ towards 'taking back' Thomas Square and restoring it to what it once was.
                          Fact: Thomas Square has been run down and often an obscene place to venture into for much longer than rail issues or Occupy or the homeless. The City has chosen to allow it to deteriorate and go un-improved for many many years. Talk to them, Mary. Besides, aren't there laws prohibiting the general public from doing the things you want done?
                          Our View also suggests the oft-mentioned 'safe zone' for homeless camping. Yeah, that'll turn into a filthy zoo of illegal activity within minutes. No thanx.
                          They also say how Bill 7 would permit the confiscation of belongings and held for 30 days until claimed... for a $200 handing fee. Can you please be more stupid?
                          Meanwhile, how about focusing on the real matters that are paramount and actual solutions that work for all, not just a select few.

                            Re: Homeless solutions

                            We've now lost a grove of 50 year old plus trees due to a homeless problem that doesn't seem to even exist there http://www.staradvertiser.com/s?action=login&f=y
                            They found one guy sleeping in these woods so The City obliterates every tree in the area... and pisses off the residents, friggin brilliant! With more incredible action by our leaders such as this I'm sure they'll be solving all our problems in no time.

                            Today's SA/Our View say's that "the problem may reach the point where a stopgap solution, such as creating a sanctioned campsite for people that won't go to shelters, may have to be considered", while acknowledging it's just sweeping the problem under the carpet. http://www.staradvertiser.com/s?acti...y&id=192840211
                            Can't supposedly smart people propose anything that actually addresses long-term workable solutions, at least better than herding people into confines that do little to help but will cause infinitly more problems, or always rely on transitional housing as a silver bullet?

                            As to funding solutions with civic donations, we see how little interest there really is towards bettering our environment with the sad state of merely heating for pools on Oahu http://www.staradvertiser.com/s?acti...y&id=192812561 One wonderful lady with means steps up to help and asks that others do so too. We'll see how that goes. But what can we expect from others who don't see the problems, such as a pool, when they don't pony up for things they see daily that drive them nuts?

                              As a resident of the immediate area I really feel the cutting down of the trees have made the cemeteries a lot more presentable as compared to what it was before. I also feel that families who have relatives buried there like it a lot too. I was born and raised and still reside in this area and it certainly is a vast improvement to what was. You failed to mention that the article also brought attention to the desecration and trash that the people who were sleeping there were doing.

                                Agreed. It took a bit of getting used to at first, seeing Ka'ahumanu Cemetery without the trees. But talking to people who have knowledge about the place, they all say that the tree removals will help preservation efforts.
