    Austin Goes from Harmlessly Weird to Dangerously Stupid by Legalizing Camping on City

    Austin Goes from Harmlessly Weird to Dangerously Stupid by Legalizing Camping on City Streets

    On June 20, the Austin city council passed what has to be one of the dumbest, most nonsensical ordinances since the city’s last idiotic, nonsensical ordinance (they pass a lot of ‘em, bless their hearts).

    The city council made it perfectly legal to camp out on the city’s public spaces and sidewalks, under bridges and overpasses and, well, everywhere all over town – except, notably, parks and Austin City Hall.

    That’s right. The city council exempted themselves from seeing homeless campouts — let’s call them Adlervilles, after the esteemed Mayor Steve Adler — on their own front porch. Mayor Adler and his cohort deemed city hall camping out of bounds. But you, owner of the local cookie store or overtaxed home, will get to see and step over and around all manner of things right out in your yard 24-7 now.
    I realize that Austin is an Island of Weird in the Texas Sea of Sanity, but are Doh! Mayor and City Council so damnably ignoramt or such obtuse ideologues that they think the result of this won't be something along the lines of SF or LA?

    That town weirded out a long time ago. Nothing they do surprises me anymore.

    Smart folks will pitch a tent over a grated storm drain. No shit in the street or on the sidewalk and you can shit/pee inside your tent in private.

    I almost said that homeless people are so out of it that they wouldn't give a shit, but I realized that actually they would be ... literally.

    We have these in LA City proper. They are major health hazards not to mention raw sewage going into storm drains made for rain water.

    Where are the environmentalist?

It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

    There's a term I use, for places like Eau Claire, or Missoula, or Whitefish, or Chautauqua, New York. "Coffee-House Liberalism." This is the smiley-face of liberalism - the poetry reading, the pretty signs (No Human Is Illegal) and the earnest kids discussing the beauty of the brotherhood of Man.

    The guitar solos in the plaza and coffee houses, soon give way to drum circles, and harangues from agitators. Then the marches, the screams, KILL-THE-PIGS, and the plots by the sociopaths to maim large numbers of "them."

    This, this stupid camping order, is about the time where the poetry readings give way to the cacophony of drum circles. This is liberalism moving to its natural state - stupidity and hatred, for those who reject it, for their lessers, for themselves. Cloward and Piven were not aberrant - they were just working illiberal "liberalism" to its intended end, destruction of the Current Order.
