Bitter cold to return to eastern U.S. this weekend

“Temperatures 20°F below normal will likely invade the Upper Midwest on Sunday, and gradually spread southeastwards during the week,” says Weather Underground’s Dr. Jeff Masters. “The peak cold is predicted to occur late next week, with temperatures 20 – 35° below normal covering much of the eastern 2/3 of the country.

Just kick them out into the snow? Fortunately, because of global warming, it’s unusually warm snow

This is heartless. Those who have escaped the dreaded “job lock” have to have a warm places to write their poetry and play their lutes. Is there no compassion in NYC?

Fire them across the border into Mexico. I hear it’s nice and warm there.

It’s only fair.

Right. New York's Finest would never stoop to this level without orders from the Gracie Mansion. DiBlasio is proven himself not only to be unable to eat pizza correctly, but a heartless bastard to boot.

If this was Rudy G., the NY Times would go ballistic. I'll be waiting for their coming ‘outrage’ with DiBlasio.

And the cartels can use them as target practice. Sounds like a win-win.

Yeah, why are these bleeding hearts folding so fast?

At the very least they could let these dudes and dudettes camp in their back yards, or something.

They got the right train though, years ago my father explained that the homeless like the E train best because it is the only subway line that runs entirely underground.

And having fallen asleep more than a few times on the train to Brooklyn, when those doors open up outside hello you are awake!

This is how the hippies in Portland responded to the local PD being ordered to take the blankets away from the homeless:

Yep.

I don’t see why there is a problem with this. They often go to the public libraries during the day.

I knew an (ultra-liberal) nurse who worked with the homeless. He said they had a real go-getter who got government funded apartments and homes for the homeless. They furnished them and provided clothes and all the necessities. The homeless sold the stuff they were given and not one spent a night in the homes or apartments. He said they were mentally ill. (As a psych nurse he got called out to “certify” a homeless man who had nailed his penis to a tree. The cop said, “Well, is he disturbed?” His response? “He’s nailed his frickin’ penis to a tree. He’s not disturbed. He’s crazy.”)

They sell everything for drug money. That is why I don’t give to the beggars who are out in the wicked cold in my neighborhood. There are plenty of places to get food for free. I would just be enabling a drug habit.
