    Don’t think I haven’t forgot about the only time you’ve ever left Michigan or Wisconsin, hail. You were so excited to let everybody know that you were in Boston at Fenway Park that you posted on here to let us know during the actual game. No doubt you posted hourly updates on Facebook about it.

    I mean, we can all agree that certain parts of Cali are REALLY shitty, right? They’re no different than any other state in that regard. However, I seriously doubt that any other state has the homeless/feces problem that they do.

    It’s worse there because there are more of them. Most of that has to do with it being nice weather and there’s areas of the city basically taken over by them. It’s easier to find food, drugs and shelter. Most don’t go there for state policies. But the homeless use drugs and defecate out in the open everywhere so it’s not like it’s just limited to California. This is a problem which nearly every large city in the country has.

    One thing I'll never understand is how hard boomers think it is to use your phone while doing something else.

    It’s just funny that you demonize people for talking about places they’ve visited but the one time you did something you live broadcast to the world about it. No doubt if you ever travel to a place like Denver you’ll update everybody about it 4x a day then make fun of somebody else for saying they once visited Oregon.

    Sorry pal. You can’t spin this one. The irony of your statement was not overlooked by me.

    FWIW, I don't really chime in when people talk about all the places they've visited. If they like to travel the world then more power to them.

    It's when you start using it to brag or insult someone else that I.... what are we calling it, "demonize" (?), you.

    You took a shot at that poster because you don't think he travels enough.

    I took a shot at you for thinking we give a shit how much you travel.


    And now you are playing the victim card like a typical lib. Turn off the internet for the day, boomer, you're looking ridiculous.

    I normally don’t but he was making some serious accusations on a subject he likely doesn’t understand. It was low hanging fruit. That’s my speciality.

    The idiots you elect to public office are clueless. They do nothing to help people that actually pay taxes and try to make a living. BTW, been there many times.

    I just saw an article where 9/10 Republicans feel trump will be elected and over 1/3 of democrats do too. What blows my mind is who they are marching out into battle. I do feel like Bernie is a formidable threat, but what’s insane is how many old guard dems don’t want him and know he is more detrimental to their core beliefs than trump is.

    Cali’s homeless/shit problem is part government and part environment. The weather is nice practically year-round along the coast. It’s easier to be homeless in a place where you don’t die when you’re outside for a few hours without a coat in the winter. Add in the insane cost of housing, and boom. It’s a problem any government would struggle to solve.

    I don't know what the answer is, but helping people out that refuse to help themselves creates a bigger problem.....and cali's problem has never trended in the right direction, has it?

    I wouldn’t say most of the homeless are making a clear headed conscious decision to not help themselves. I think most of them have legitimate mental issues. Sure there will be quite a few junkies in places like California that are there because it’s the easiest place to score drugs but many of those folks are really messed up in the head. I’m not sure how you solve a problem like that.

    Its too big and too expensive to fix. Cant fix irreversible brain damage from drugs, cant jail them, cant bail them out, cant rehabilitate them bc of $$. I guess the only thing that seems feasible is somehow keeping that group from growing bigger.

    Joe's campaign is over. The Democrats are this close to nominating a socialist.

    Watching some committee hearings and listening to some of these lifer politicians talk should give most people serious concerns on term limits.

    Hey Pubs, how would you feel if Bernie got the nomination from the Dems and ran against Trump?

    He is the very last person I would want winning, but I've always thought if he was the nominee, it would almost guarantee a Trump win. I'm not sure if I believe that anymore, he's winning more than I thought he would, even if its just a few states so far.
