Read the latest silliness in re homelessness in the Daily Camera, Councilman: Year-round shelter for Boulder’s homeless should be on table. Quoting from the article below:
Offering year-round shelter to Boulder’s homeless residents should be part of the city’s broader discussion on homelessness, Boulder Councilman Sam Weaver said Tuesday night.
As they have for several months now, advocates for the homeless addressed the Boulder City Council during the elected leaders’ open comment period, calling for year-round shelter and for the city to back off of increased enforcement on the municipal campus and in Central Park.
My online comments are copied here:
Boulder City Councilman Sam Weaver apparently doesn’t understand that THE WORST-BEHAVED TRANSIENTS AND THEIR APOLOGISTS/ENABLERS ARE ALREADY THE TAIL WAGGING THE DOG in our fair city.
BTW, the media has ignored this story: https://homelessphilosopher.wordpress.com/2014/06/…
The “homeless advocates” can’t even come up with a ballpark figure for the number of homeless people in Boulder, CO. Does anybody really believe there was a 41% reduction in the homeless population from January, 2013 to January, 2014? I discount the new category they’ve contrived of people “at-risk” of becoming homeless. Compare the data for yourself:
Why believe anything that comes out of the mouths of advocates who can’t get their story straight?
See a news story about my old hometown, Health inspector enters home where 3 kids lived amidst roaches, flies, feces and urine. But, looking on the bright side, the wealthy white upper crust led by Mayor Jerry Brown continues to be fat and happy.

It’s very quiet and peaceful on the corner of N. Broadway & U.S. 36 these days, since Shouting Joe from St. Louis was arrested and taken away to Boulder County Jail a week ago. Joe has been charged with three felony counts of Sexual Assault, and he remains in custody.
BTW, I found out what happened to Filthy Phil, the bum had been living on the RTD bus stop bench at University Hill last year. Boulder County Jail records show that he was arrested back in December for Indecent Exposure, and he also remains in custody. What’s with all of the homeless perverts in Boulder, CO?
True, Denver King is still attempting to panhandle on the corner. Yesterday, he complained to me because he’d only made $5 in four hours, as I was reading Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel in my shady spot nearby. King also was angry because none of the passersby gave him any water to drink as he stood in the hot sun. LOL! Good work, people — maybe we can get rid of him, too.
Tonight at my campsite: unhealthy food. Yum!
