Don't Move to Austin. It's Rotting from Within.

<More Typical lefty Consequences Of Stupidity Here>

I wish I'd taken a picture.

I'd turned off North Lamar and was driving north on the 183 service road. It has just rained, which makes Austin traffic even more ridiculous than usual. The rumor of rain will extend your commute by 15 minutes. An actual drop, half an hour. We'd had a quick storm, plus nearly every road downtown is under some kind of construction, plus a truck had hit a power line over on 360. That shut the road down in both directions, making Austin's already sclerotic arteries fail and throw commuter traffic into cardiac arrest. It took 90 minutes to go about 12 miles.

And as I'm dealing with the nightmare on the roads, I see one of Austin's new camps. You may have heard about these. Mayor Steve Adler and the leftwing city council passed an ordinance allowing the homeless to camp out nearly anywhere they want, all over town (except at city hall). The day this camping went legal, homeless started sleeping in front of businesses and homes. Tent cities started popping up all over, in medians and under overpasses.

Most of the tent cities are just that - tents like you find at the local sporting good store, plus fabric chairs, bicycles and other visual pollution. Mayor Adler and company have paid zero heed to what's happening in Los Angeles after it allowed open camping: demon plagues now beset the City of Angels. Leprosy itself, that disfiguring disease from the first century, may make a comeback too. If Austin doesn't change its ways, soon, these medieval blights may descend on the Texas capital.

The tent city I saw on this trip was different. There were no tents. This was a series of wooden shacks hugging a beam supporting the 183 highway above. They were made of mismatched wood and particle board paneling, whatever the residents could scrounge up. My heart goes out to people in these circumstances.

The last time I saw a shanty town like this, I was in Baghdad. That was at the height of the war in January 2007, just days after the end of Saddam Hussein. But this is Austin in 2019.

This Austinite snapped a shot of a smaller shanty than the one I saw, and asks a valid question:

I saw this photo on reddit today. Something occurred to me: why is it homeowners have to get permits for any new construction and yet the #homeless are able to construct their own structures without regard to safety or permits? #atxcouncil #atx

A homeless man has been charged in the unprovoked attack on a local woman. But it could have been so much worse for her, as it was for UT dance student Haruka Weiser in 2016. Her homeless killer got life in prison.

The point of this is not to bash the homeless. The point is to bash addle-brained people like Steve Adler, Greg Casar and others who ought to be adult enough to know better, but who have turned Austin into their socialist laboratory.

'You're Our Only Hope!': Liberal Austin Cries out for Republicans to Save It from Democrat Homeless Policy
BY BRYAN PRESTON
JULY 17, 2019
PJ Media

<More Surprise Here Because Everyone Smarter Than lefties Knew What Would Happen>

Since Austin's liberal policy on homeless camping went into effect on July 1, the big question is how much of an impact would it really have? Was the issue overblown? Would Austin residents see homeless camps pop up all over town or not? And would Austin, woke and weird capital that it is, object to it all?

The results are in and growing. And if Los Angeles is any guide, they are urgent. Mayor Steve Adler recently traveled to L.A. to "learn" how to handle homelessness from the Democrat-run city. Austin and L.A. both have permissive camping policies.

Well, L.A. now has a major rat problem.

An ever-growing number of rodents in California -- particularly in Los Angeles -- is being fueled by a spiking homeless population and restrictions on rodenticides that are risking a public health crisis, according to a study released Tuesday.
--

Rodent's can carry dangerous diseases such as typhus, plague and salmonella, in addition to their roles contributing to asthma.

Is this Austin's future now?

The camps and lawlessness are becoming a visible part of the Austin landscape all over the city. Austinites are posting photos on Twitter to alert Mayor Steve Adler — and the media, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, and each other — as they see new camps or campers.

Time to open up mental hospitals and throw these bums into them to get them off our streets and turn them back into productive law abiding citizens again or they stay locked up.

Unfortunately, the idiots that vote for democrats don't see these policies and the policy consequences as the problem.

These provocative articles could be considered a proverbial shot across the bow. Will there be a litany of excuses from the left here? How “this time it’s different”? Or is it simply “a price I’m willing to have others pay”?

It might be if I cared about anything any of those idiots think.

I fully expect it.

Progressives never seem to seek solutions that eliminate problems. They prefer to find solutions that accommodate problems. This Austin homeless solution is one example. It doesn't address the root cause of homelessness. It just finds a way to accommodate them in their society. Drug use is another example. Instead of addressing the root cause they prefer to adapt society to the drug use by legalizing it. Same goes for illegal immigration, crime, etc., etc...

They even hand out free needles to the druggies at taxpayer's expense when they should be arresting them instead.

That guy in the picture looks almost exactly like the admitted commie that takes over the next shift here where I work. He's awful at his job, screws everything up that I have accomplished everyday of the week and they never say a word to him about it.

Yep. In their eyes everyone's a victim. Nobody is personally responsible for their own situation. Therefore, we should give them everything and let them do anything. :nuts:

Employers get a tax break for hiring "certain" people.

Consequences as defined by marxists:
Those things that happen to other people when our policies are evoked.
Nothing bad ever happens to the collective "them" and therefore they are not responsible for the failures of their idiocy.

In Austin a few years ago I was sitting out on the balcony of a place we were eating at. It was next to the bus station, you could see roving bands of homeless moving around like tribal herds. It was unreal. Yet that is the crap those idiots vote for. Let them swim in their own crap.

I was wondering when someone would post something about this!

Most of the complaints are either about:

1) Behavior that remains illegal like indecent exposure, littering, assault, aggressive panhandling, blocking the right of way, camping on private property without the owners permission, etc.

2) Things that were already happening like panhandling, camping, or sleeping in public areas. People that are homeless are going to sleep somewhere, criminalizing it doesn't solve or prevent it.

I'm a little confused. Are you talking about Austin's homeless, or the Austin mayor and city council?
