Liberal California City Considers Banning People Feeding Homeless


California city proposes ban on public feeding homeless

 The new measure, if passed, will make the handing out of food in Lancaster, CA banned on public streets, sidewalks, parking lots and other city-owned property.

 Lawmakers claim the extreme measure will cut down on trash and “public nuisance.” But critics claim it will endanger the lives of the already vulnerable homeless population.

 Lancaster’s Mayor Rex Parris, a massive supporter of the ban, argued with homeless advocates in a tense meeting on Tuesday night.

Foxnews.com reports: “A lot of people would come to eat, the people feeding them would leave and the mess would be left behind,” Parris said. “We’re talking about people defecating in the entryways of the business. It became a public health problem.”

The City and government in general needs to stop legislating morals and social policy... if the problem with homelessness is so great that it is spilling over into areas the city doesn't want it... they need to examine why and too take corrective action... things like RENT CONTROL and reducing regulation, taxes and other anti-business laws... thus bringing back industry and jobs... ending the primary cause for homelessness.

One thing for sure they should end any sanctuary status for illegals and go after employers who refuse to hire US Citizens preferring low wage illegal aliens.

TRUMP:  Trump To Give ‘Start Your Engines’ Command At Dayton

President Donald Trump will give the command for drivers to start their engines before the Daytona 500.

Daytona International Speedway officials named Trump the grand marshal for NASCAR’s season opener, meaning he will deliver the most famous four words in auto racing. “Gentleman, start your engines,” has been a staple of races around the country and world for decades.

White House spokesman Judd Deere said Thursday the president plans to attend the race. Track president Chip Wile confirmed the news in a release.

“Daytona International Speedway has been privileged to have hosted several sitting presidents of the United States over our history,” Wile said. “We’re honored that the president of the United States has chosen to experience the pageantry and excitement of ‘The Great American Race.’”

Trump is the third sitting president to attend a race at Daytona, but only the second to attend the Daytona 500. George W. Bush attended in 2004. Trump is the first to be given an honorary role in pre-race ceremonies.

Trump is scheduled to spend part of the Presidents Day weekend at his private club in Palm Beach, Florida.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued a flight restriction for Sunday and the U.S. Secret Service, which is responsible for presidential security, also tweeted to fans that drones are prohibited within 30 miles of the race in Daytona Beach — a restriction put in place for presidential visits.

Trump has hosted previous NASCAR champions at the White House and last October awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to motorsports titan Roger Penske. Last year, Trump also praised retired driver Mario Andretti, the Daytona 500 winner in 1967, reminiscing about a ride Andretti gave him in a race car for his reality show “The Apprentice.”

“I said, ‘Mario, get me out of here. I want to get out of this car,’” Trump recalled. “We went so fast. We literally — we covered four blocks in like a second.”
