This is what happens when you let radical idealists run rampant. Shame on news media for fanning the flames of division.

Is just me or do these numbers seem really low. I live in California and routinely commute all through greater Los Angeles, North/South Bay Area and Sacramento. Homelessness is everywhere. Full on tent cities, overpasses stuffed with makeshift shelters, sleeping bags and shopping carts on the sidewalks, and miles long stretches of RVs and cars. It's everywhere.
