Pearl Developers Will Pay Right 2 Dream Too to Go Someplace Else

Illustration by Topher MacDonald


If they're going to spend $850,000 - why not buy a building as a new shelter or build a shelter? There is no good excuse for homelessness. If we can get people off the streets, someplace warm and safe, that should be the goal. No one should be sleeping outside and $850k is more than enough to create such a haven. There shouldn't be talk of another 'camp' when that much money is involved.
"Anywhere, just so long as I don't have to work or pay taxes is GRRREAT!"
I'm sorry, but something stinks about this deal, I smell a bait and switch. Public trough leeches like Homer Williams and Dike Dame don't just give away $850k and allowing them to purchase Lot 7 for a measly 142k has me skeptical as well. I wouldn't doubt if Hales has made some sort of backroom deal and has promised these guys a subsidy or tax break on their next development project where in reality it's the public paying for this in the end. Meanwhile, these d-bags get to walk away from this PR nightmare smelling like roses, they get a new lot on the cheap, and they don't have to look upon the unwashed masses. There's got to be more to this story, "no taxpayer money", I call bullshit.
How very Pearl of them

Please wait...

and remember to be decent to everyone
all of the time.
