Continuing California Fiasco – Thanks gov!

A few quotes from various California publications.

Who meets qualifications to get free motel or hotel rooms:

…..”Only homeless people who meet certain criteria, including being older than 65 and having health conditions that make them susceptible to dying of COVID-19, qualify. The goal of leasing 15,000 rooms would fall far short of reaching the total number of unhoused Californians in those vulnerable groups, but it still represented a massive undertaking that would have to unfold on a far more rapid timeline than most housing programs…”

…..”the largest impediments in some counties have been delays in preparing leased rooms for occupancy — not, as the governor has complained, NIMBY interests at the local level.  In other counties, a shortage of staff to care for homeless residents, providing services such as food services, security, nursing and case management, have been responsible for delays.” 

Gosh, for those who qualify, and WANT to be monitored, and told when and where they can leave the rooms (honestly) – it sounds like they will be on a brief Corona virus vacation….

On a side note:

……”Undocumented workers flooded California’s coronavirus disaster relief website Monday, causing the site to crash for several hours.  Monday was the first day undocumented Californians could apply for the one-time payment of $500 per individual or $1,000 per household. “

The site was crashed by the number of “ILLEGALS” scurrying to get help.  I know, I know, undocumented is politically correct, but at this point, who gives a damn what I say!

Definitions:

  1.  Undocumented – not having appropriate / or LEGAL documents.
  2.  Illegal – contrary to or forbidden by law.
