Oakland considers housing homeless on a cruise ship

During a city council meeting this week, Oakland City Council President suggested using a cruise ship to house up to 1,000 homeless people. This comes as the city grapples with homelessness - this has spiked 47 percent jump in two years. Cruise ships have been used as emergency housing before, such as in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

Democrat-controlled cities are feculent covered shitholes that are rat infested, crime infested, and utter disasters. Now they want to ship out their homeless and poor to other places because the Democrats refuse to solve the problem. Sickening how they treat human beings.

And then the cruise ship departs for somewhere else... Hawaii maybe.

Great... and then condemn the ships inhabitable every couple years. Better to set up refugee style tent cities outside the population centers
