For L.A. homeless: a gym, movies, and hair salon

A little decadent for a homeless shelter? Probably so, but what else would you expect from LA. With their fancy cars, big houses, and now pimp ass homeless shelters. This place is sweet. It has a a gym, movies, a library, hair salon, and even play facilities for children. Despite the arguments presented in the article, I think that this a great facility and a great way to get the homeless off of the streets. I mean if I was homeless, I would be hitting this place up like nobodies business. And along with getting the homeless to the shelters, comes more hope for curing the high rates of mental disability that is so rampant among the homeless population. And along with a more mentally stable homeless population comes more opportunity for work and all around life change. Now if the city of LA can just couple this nive new facility with some affordable housing, then we might be on to something.

Man! So basically I need to move to LA! That is so screwed up, that is what is wrong with society and or F***ing government state/local/federal!!!!!!!!!! While the Rich and Poor prevail and have nice facilities etc. the middle class is forced to punch time clocks and just barely make ends meat! Not only do we support the "homeless" we help other nations rather our own! Okay I'll get off my soap box but keep in mind... "every so called 'great' nation falls." In time...In time....!!!!!
