Ugh, fuck that. Just went through Townsville and like most beach towns found it great because of public toilets and showers and swimming, plus lots of beach front bbqs.

Didn't get bothered by anyone and the other local homebums were friendly. Fuck that dumbass mayor hating on homeless folks for living their lives.

In Melbourne back in 2017, they had groups of police go around the city arresting and moving on homeless, theres an area or was an area right next to Flinder street station where people set up camps and places to stay, the police also went to that spot and there was fights between police and homeless and people protesting.

'Prosperity' becomes meaningless when the most vulnerable members of society are mistreated & discarded by the 'established order'

In the 90s, a schoolmarmish employer of mine established a bumfeed at Ocean Ave. Park above Santa Monica Pier - a very touristy zone, quite upscale now; the hostile outcry was tremendous. This was through her parish & it was touch and go with local law-enforcement.
Little more than a decade earlier Santa Monica was a liberal bastion where folks burned down the bank. Heaven help us all

uhhhhhggg. these people sounds so uneducated saying shit like “they choose to live that lifestyle” when addressing cycles of poverty and addiction. anyone with an slip of empathy or the most basic knowledge of psychology & sociology know that statement to be completely untrue. disgraceful to have politicians spouting this kind of prejudice rhetoric. north queensland is frankly fucking WILD. country australia hasn’t progressed on from its severe marginalisation since the 70’s.

if they wanna ‘get to the root of the problem’ pump more money into NFPs so theres open access to trained professionals and support systems for these vulnerable people. ya gotta create a foundation of growth for the fucking community at some point.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
