Kemiskinan bukan sebuah Alasan untuk meminta melainkan sebuah Perjuangan mendapatkan Kesetaraan
Tidak ada alasan untuk berhenti Mencari Kesempatan apa yang seharusnya Kamu dapatkan, Kesempatan akan menjadi milikmu Jika Kamu mampu mewujudkannya dengan Tekad dan terus menerus dilakukan tanpa henti. ilustrasi diatas merupakan Gambaran dari sebuah Tekad @as_boediono #hening
Tekad Anak Manusia yang menginginkan Kesetaraan ditengah Ketidakberdayaan, Miskin bukan berarti Hina, Miskin hanyalah Ukuran Materi yang tampak diluar. Miskin juga Anugerah yang patut diSyukuri. Ilustrasi diatas sebuah Potret perjuangan Kesetaraan @as_boediono #hening

Moderator @mshannabrooks kicking off our #HousingVoterForum @seattleu tonight, where we’ll talk about the role of #housing & #homelessness in our City Council election. Follow along on @tech4housing YouTube channel.
.@mshannabrooks says she’s attended 30+ candidate endorsement meetings thus election season, & she observes a lot of candidates know the language to use to talk about #homelessness, but not necessarily what it means.
For example, says @mshannabrooks, everyone talks about #HousingFirst; but when you ask their policy, some have said they want FEMA-style tents. [For the record, tents aren’t housing.]

#WakeUpATX this can happen in #ATX.
For d last three decades, San Francisco has conducted a real-life experiment-when a society stops enforcing bourgeois norms of behavior. The city has done so in d name of #compassion toward the #homeless. /1

The results have been opposite: street squalor & misery have increased, even as government expenditures have ballooned. Yet d principles that've guided the city’s homelessness policy remain inviolate: homelessness is a housing problem; it is involuntary; and.../2 #Austinhomeless
its persistence is THE result of inadequate public spending. These propositions are readily disproved by talking to people living on the streets.
42% of respondents in city’s 2019 street poll of homeless reported chronic drug or alcohol use; actual percentage is likely higher /3

Do you remember? Today, October 8, marks the 5 year anniversary of the closure of Long Island Bridge in #Boston, which cut hundreds of people off from shelter and recovery services. #BostonWarm #StillLongIsland #Bospoli 1/
"when the bridge was finally deemed unsafe for travel on the afternoon of Oct. 8, the city had no emergency evacuation plan in place." It was a disaster for the city of #Boston. So many lives were uprooted. #StillLongIsland #BostonWarm 2/ www3.bostonglobe.com/metro/2014/12/…
Oh, deferred maintenance! Long Island Bridge was crumbling slowly and all of the sudden came down. "We've known for seven or eight years. As did the city. Not a surprise to a lot of folks who know about transportation," #StillLongIsland wgbh.org/news/post/form…

My open thoughts to my, your, OUR @POTUS @realDonaldTrump @WhiteHouse
1) I am a Trumper until the bitter end! #Trump2020 #KAG #MAGA 🇺🇸
I am a pissed off #Californian #CA
That being said...
2)🇺🇸At your #NewMexico rally you said “I wish we could move the wall & let them have their open border”. #SanDiego
I am no #Snowflake and take this in jest, you are quite funny!
I’m here to tell you the LAW ABIDING AMERICAN CITIZENS DO/DID WANT THE WALL!
#BuildTheWall
3) The ones who don’t are the criminal, cabal, lawless #Democrats that run our state #CA
It was a little disheartening to hear.
Millions of us, here, in #TheSwamp support you.

@KamalaHarris has none of the necessary tools to preside over this nation. But #birtherism #challenges to her qualifications to be elected are #silly.
In the years preceding the 2016 election, because @tedcruz and I share many of the same views, I spent considerable time and energy evaluating the question of whether he could be, consistent with the Constitution, qualified to serve as President.
If you're wondering why that would even be in doubt, remember two things: I am a hide-bound constitutionalist; and, the Constitution provides the brief but precise requirements to be qualified to be president.

Our family is homeless.

There are four of us. My husband, myself, and our two teenage boys.

We sleep in our car, in Walmart parking lots or rest stops.

We are on the waiting list for the local shelter and for other housing locally.

My oldest son has autism. I am permanently disabled due to an accident in 2011 that has left me unable to work. My husband suffers from crippling anxiety, depression and ptsd.

I get social security for my injury, and I worked from age 16 to my accident in 2011. (2/8)
We are still working on reapplying my son for benefits, and my husband as well. We are as connected to resources as we can be. We are connected to the schools, to dshs, and local shelters. We are still working on getting connected with possible helpful churches. (3/8)

Well - it's my birthday today. It's also 3 weeks since we provided @RedbridgeLive with a clear list of emergency needs as disanled, homeless people, that they need to help us meet as per the Care Act. NONE have been met.
@RedbridgeLive So - NO access to disabled bathing facilities suitable to our impairments, for months now. No hairwashing/drying. No support in accessing food, made increasingly impossible by disability, but also complete lack of cooking and refrigeration facilities.
@RedbridgeLive The distance to the car is too much for me, and for Stevie. She last "went out" on 16 January when she was forced, with Sean, to transfer to another Travelodge while I was in hospital. She hasnt seen anyone except me and her brother since.

We are calling on people to join us on the streets on #March9th to demand, yet again, meaningful action on the housing crisis. The government could begin by implementing the demands of the motion overwhelmingly supported by the Dail last October. #HomesForAll #Right2Housing
#March9th will be just one of a number of regional demonstrations over the coming months which will culminate in a national demonstration in Dublin on May 11th. #HousingCrisis #HomesForAll
#Homeless figures released by Dept for Jan show 9,987 people as officially homeless. This is a drop in the ocean compared to the true number of people impacted by #homelessness.

#HousingCrisis impacts everyone from students, Travellers, workers, families, migrants & children.

I put this thread up Friday. Few RTs because #disability ♿ and #poverty are boring to people who aren't living it.

That's a real problem in America.

Yet my mentions were full of people facing the same struggle --the fear, frustration and isolation.

♿↘️
The failure to prioritize sick & #disabled people in America is an actual catastrophe for millions. We already know nearly all of America's #homeless suffer from some #disability.

Also, 81M disabled & 131M chronically ill Americans struggle financially due to medical costs.
When the #GOPTaxScam eviscerated the #ACA mandate, it jacked up the premiums for every sick person in America. Mine went from $239 a month for my HMO to $1,978.10.

The CBO said it would happen and it did. Millions have dropped their health insurance because of these price hikes.

This has been the most frustrating day.
I have been working since I was 14.
I am now trying to apply for #disability--#SSDI.
It's a ridiculously arduous process meant to trip people up and keep desperate/sick/#disabled people from accessing help.

We must do better.
#CripTheVote
Since the #GOPTaxScam, my health insurance premium costs $1,978.10 PER MONTH for an HMO.
The cost of being sick in America.

That is just my premium--not the co-pays, not the cost of oxygen, hospital bed, Rxs.

I'm already bankrupt and soon The Wife will be as well.
#CripTheVote
My health insurance premium costs $24k a year.
That's more than I make as a writer.
How is this acceptable, America?
If I didn't have a partner, I would be on the street, paralyzed and sick.
Is this what we want for our most vulnerable people?

My family is currently homeless. We live in our car, usually at Walmart parking lots or rest stops. We are a family of four. I'm disabled, my husband suffers from mental illness, and we have two teenage boys, as well. My oldest is autistic. (thread)
Because of the autism and because we all suffer from anxiety, we avoid the overnight shelter here, which is usually full of sick children, loud noise, and awful smells. I have tried this option many times, and my oldest just hides in the bathroom when we are there.
The majority of the programs here for the homeless are for adults without children. There is literally one family shelter. We are on a list to get into the main shelter, but like I said, we have problems with the overnight shelter there, too.

Here’s a thread that nobody asked for comparing today’s urgent global problems to dim sum.
1/14 Nuclear Weapons v. Xiao Long Bao: Treat with respect or face intense explosion, third degree burns and worse. Experts disagree on how to handle in a never-ending debate. Also, it’s a challenging dish to make. #globalzero #nuclearweapons
2/14 Climate Crisis v. Chicken Feet: Look, you can’t soft sell this. It’s not chicken “change” for chrissakes. It’s the most intimidating item on the table, and there’s no disguising it for what it is. Deniers are vocal. #climatechange #globalwarming

Helping the #Homeless, rather than harming them.

We have a problem here at our building.

A homeless people problem.

Likely a similar problem to what many, many buildings have, across the developed world. No, the problem isn't
that there are homeless people who stay in the lobby because they have nowhere else to go.

The problem, is that people who live inside the building, in actual homes, with heat food and all sorts of other necessities of life, keep calling the cops on those not as fortunate,
simply for taking shelter.

There are many reasons that are claimed this is done, but simple fact, is that it is wrong, regardless of the 'why' that is claimed.

Notice what I said there. I didn't say it was wrong to call the cops on someone who is threatening someone, or

BREAKING: Strafford County will open its emergency overnight warming shelter in Dover at 4 p.m. Saturday due to the hazardous wind chill. The opening comes after pressure from community members and #homeless/social service agencies. @FostersDailyDem @StraffordCAP @NHCEH (THREAD)
Strafford County Commissioner George Maglaras, via text:

“Opening the warming shelter today at 4 o’clock through Monday morning at nine given the nature of the wind chill factor out is the driving factor

And after hearing from many of the social service agencies in the county”
Big news for those who have been looking for or calling for assistance. The next two tweets contain two previous stories on the County Farm Road almshouse shelter for background on what’s going on/how it will be structured.

THREAD The mass homelessness we're seeing in Toronto & Canada is without question a disaster. It's a disaster on the same scale - or bigger - then most of the biggest natural disasters in Canadian history. So what would happen if we treated it as such? bit.ly/2Qts7dW 1/
1st let's look at the scale of #homelessness. It happens to at least 235,000 Canadians per year, 35,000 every night and costs $7 BILLION per year. It kills an unknown number of people & reduces life expectancy for thousands. homelessmemorials.com/memorial/ 2/
The scale of #homelessness is the same our our worst natural disasaters. bit.ly/2S1ESJJ We have to respond accordingly. Municipal disaster response processes provide a model for ending #homelessness. What does that look like & how could it apply? 3/

It's #ElectionEve and I want to tell you why I #vote.
My parents were Socialists.
They grew up dirt poor.
They believed in creating change in their lifetimes.
They raised us to believe the same.
When we were small, they were Civil Rights workers.
My dad was a Freedom Rider.

Our early childhood was framed within & by the #CRM.
My mother wasn't well, but she did everything she knew how, to ensure that black Americans had the right to vote, a right she cherished because her mother had been a baby #suffragist and had fought for that right for women.
2/
The fallout for my parents was minor compared to their black friends, but it was violent and hate-strewn and they worried about their children being hurt.

And we were hurt. I got beaten up a lot because then as now I refused silence. I got in a lot of fist fights.

Here is the question no one is asking: Where & how did the homeless get all these RVs???
And why is MSM so quiet about it???

#Homeless
this man in the video nailed it on the head when he says the city will not give these motorhomes tickets because they don't want a paper trail showing how many homeless are in Los Angeles and being supported
Here are only some answers. People are renting many of these RV's
