Can We Talk?


The problems we are having on the homeless front should not be blamed on anyone but our federal government. It is not because of Santa Barbara’s nonprofits. Santa Barbara works hard everyday when it comes to the homeless issues. We need to look at the big picture and that is difficult for many of us. As we continue to allow greed and corporations to rule us, trillions of dollars are taken away everyday we fight wars and continue to bomb Libya. As this goes on, millions of Americans will lose their jobs, their houses, only to find themselves living out of their vehicles. We must realize that our government is not going to save us; they never have. As a city we all need to come together and discuss the problems and solutions. We must open the doors of communication, now.
