bou. The city are testing positive for the dark age affliction and some are asking for transfers out of eric varsity's fresh hell. So why are there rats and typhus in tent cities and a ballooning homeless population? You guessed it. It is a failure of government, a blatant one and in thiscase it's too much nannying that's directly led to a housing shortage with victims of overbearing policies forced to live on the streets. There are more people than housing units all over california, and cities like la and san francisco, have mazes of regulations and fees and zoning restrictions that make it impossible to build ample housing for easily displaced vulnerable citizens. So what happens? Not enough housing and the housing prices spike, leaving single moms in the mentally fragile, with very few options, so they land in shelters or in tents or outside, and then they poop throw their trash willy-nilly. The rats eat the trash and we all die so who benefits from high real estate prices, wellnot buyers, obviously but billionaire real estate, tycoons and, of course, public employees and they're hungry pensions that fatten up on real estate, investments that bloat from unnecessary bubbles. So the people who make the laws create more regulation then add to the torturous zoning climate directly benefit from a tight housing market, and that's why they're so reluctant to change things for the better less regulation would directly lead to more homes, and that means the displace Abul fine, permanent shelter and rat poop can go back to the pages of willard and not on the streets of dodger town. The other glaring issue is also the war on drugs, which is criminalized activity.

That is all too easyto engage in for the street-bound and if we shift our view of drug use from a problem of criminality to a public health crisis, people will get the treatment they need when the government finally gets out of the way hear me now, garcetti Imported supervisors and that's the memo.
