yucchhii The Homelessness commission is doing "NOTHING" with the money given to them by the FEDERAL government. They were supposed to put an end to homelessness in a TEN year program. It's FIVE years into the program and they've spent VERY LITTLE of that money. They are holding onto it untill the ten years are up and then to put it into a GENERAL FUND then they can spend it ANY WAY THEY WANT. This will only give them MORE money to add to the money they will spend for themselves. There are more homeless on the streets now and NOTHING has been done about it. There hasn't even been any sort of EFFORTS. DON'T go for this BS about the HOMELESS run!!!

Passage Psalm 24 :

Psalm 24

1The earth is the LORD's, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

2For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.

3Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?

4He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.

5He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

6This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.

7Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

8Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.

9Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

10Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.
