    I wouldn't wish a " warming fire" on any one.
    Isn't your development the one that was in deep snow during the back to back to back snowstorms and all snowplows,PG&E, Comcast,volunteers, etc spent a week or two there rescuing your development.....
    Leaving others in need having to wait until BTV was dug out?
    Enjoy your warming fires,don't expect any support if you keep that POV....
    don't be selfish.

        I talked to a to a homeless man this morning and asked him how he ended up this way.
        He said, "Up until 2 weeks ago, I still had it all. Being a true blue democrat, I had plenty to eat,
        my clothes were washed and pressed, I had a roof over my head, I had HDTV and Internet, and I went
        to the gym, the pool, and the library. I was working on my MBA on-line. I had no bills and no debt.
        I even had full medical coverage."
        I felt sorry for him, so I asked, "What happened? Drugs? Alcohol? Divorce?"





        "Oh no, nothing like that," he said. "No, no.... I was "PAROLED"

        Yep. Trump supporters are just looking to make America great again.
        Homeless people are a joke to them.
        Everyone that is homeless is a bum.
        Prisoners being let out for no reason.
        I do agree with your premise that those in prison have it way to easy. Maybe Joe in Phoenix will look after the prison population from the inside.

          Why do you Leftist NAZI Democrats always try to divide and categorize people?
          Obama may have given you a Huge example on dividing people, but President Trump and Trump supporters just want to Make America Great Again,...for ALL Americans.
