Homelessness is one of the most vexing public policy problems we face. If you live in a big city, especially on the West Coast, you literally face it every day. And every day, it seems to get worse.

The radical left has moved from the redefinition of marriage to the nullification of gender. If you feel that you are a woman, then justice demands that you and your penis have the right to use the women’s restroom.
Those who disagree are labeled bigots. Giant corporations buckle under pressure from the left for fear of violence and boycotts. A Target in Florida confirmed that men who feel that they are women can use the women’s bathroom.
Pop stars Nick Joans and Demi Lovato have joined a growing list of celebrities who have cancelled concerts in North Carolina over the state’s passage of HB 2, a law governing public restrooms.

Because Socialism always brings poverty, unemployment, misery and chaos wherever it rears its collective head, Democrats have re-branded Socialism with the feel-good label of Social Justice.
There is no such thing.
