Oh're shooting fish in a barrel. Under the guise of being a voice for downtrodden, you know it just sounds like unfiltered sanctimony. Get off your high horse.

On Goleta Streets Saying Good-Bye to RVs

EZK: What is wrong with wanting to live in a city with clean, safe streets? Wanting that does not make me someone who "hates their looks or housing status". My version of how to make the transients go away in 6 easy steps: 1. it’s repulsive to visit State Street these days. I never go there anymore. How many others feel this way and therefore also avoid downtown? 2. Now add that to the group of people who don't shop downtown anymore because they are trying to save money to keep their existing homes, eat, and pay bills. 3. How long can merchants and business owners, corporate or not, survive without customers? 4. Witness the increasing number of empty storefronts on Lower State and the increasing number of transients on Upper State. Just yesterday while at the Hope Street B of A's ATM, I was accosted by a transient. Let me tell you that was very uncomfortable. 5. How long before Upper State becomes as unpalatable as downtown and those businesses also fail? 6. Once Santa Barbara has been rendered an economic ghost town, then voila! The transients will have no one left to harass and then they will leave.

South Carolina is actually quite enviro-friendly. The citizens are ferociously protective of its fragile coasts and wetlands where several species of birds exist nowhere else on the planet.
