HOMELESSNESS,,, TEXTS.


these are the text messages from today's show on Homelessness.


the crime is there are so many more now . Trinidad has homeless on every corner, it's creepy! crime is up,robberies..thank you pot.. Karl in Walsenburg
Richard: LA Times story couple days ago: Los Angeles county program to put small houses in peoples backyards for homeless people! Will be here soon I bet. Regards Listener dave
Richard Randall, this is Mike Schmidt, (CoSpgs Native, Small Businessman, CEO of Ensemble Ventures, and Dir of Business Dev for Tiny Home Industry Association.
Would like to call in on your show this morning regarding homelessness, and some possible creative options for developing Tiny Home CLUSTER Communities...
I have been working on a model for the past 3 years, have spoken to city officials, the County Commissioners, local aid agencies, veterans groups etc.
I think your listeners might be interested in knowing that we could put together some "Affordable and Obtainable Housing" Test Pilots to solve these challenges.
Wanted to see if there was a line I can call in on because I might not be able to make it through the call board in time before your show ends at 10am.
We also have the potential to use ADU zoning model, (Auxiliary Dwelling Units) to expand the number of housing alternatives, but we need some "waivers" applied.
The solution to the homeless issue is for those who complain about how local authorities are harassing the homeless, is for those people to let a homeless person set up camp on their property /back yard where they cannot be harassed. Problem solved.
I believe the latest count is 5 sexually violent predators listed as homeless in the city.
If repubs loose the midterms it will be because they failed to do anything with their majority. They are banking on voters overlooking everything to keep a Dem from getting their house seat. Too many never Trumpers in Congress.
The lady who wishes she had a store doesn't need one. She can let them use her home.
Jesus said we would always have the poor among us when Judas got bent out of shape with the woman using expensive oils to anoint Him.
You cannot force mental health treatment on a person. Most refuse or stop treatment on their own. Poor cortisone with cancer.
And what is the woman doing now or did she stop
There is a difference between helping and enabling. You want to help, but those critical of you want to enable.
My husband and I used to take our 4 children every Thanksgiving and Christmas for many years to feed the homeless. Our overall experience was that these people did not want to enter society and they were often even rude and ungrateful about what was being offered to them.
i LOVE tiny homes. are they a solution for homeless or for the woman who was on the streets because of divorce etc.
What?... american hates poor americans.... bad Richard.. you not only hate immigrants... you also hate american vets homeless... and you say you are Christian? And Vet supporters.... what a radio listeners homeless and immigrants phobics!!!
 We need to make sure that the city puts zoning measures in place to insure that a place like the free shower and bathroom thing cant exist in a business district. I am a business owner in old colorado City and the effect that Westside Cares and the vagrants has had on business and the community is devastating. The shelters have only been at capacity twice through the winter and they offer all of those services. Prefer to remain anonymous Thanks!!
 (1/2) Per Dana, it's always society's fault. You can give homeless all the resources available and they still wouldn't get help because they don't want it. I would NEVER go to her coffee shop. 9:21 AM
When is that idiotic man-child in the white house that you trailer park people idolize so much going to learn to shut his moronic mouth?
So Richard in your Infinite Wisdom what exactly do we do with the homeless just kill them all just get rid of them wipe them out that's sure is one typical hypocritical Christian attitude that you have I've never met a Christian it didn't care about anything but himself and you fit the same old so please give us the answer you know so much and you claim to be such a big-time lawyer give us the answer Richard
You say "MARE", like a horse. The word is pronounced MAY-OR!
Jesus was a carpenter, he had a job. When questioned by the pharisees about taxes, He told them to render unto ceasar what is ceasar's. Can't do that if you don't have a job. Jesus healed several cripeles/sick and those with mental issues. He told them to get up, and get on their way, and sin no more. 2 Thessalonians 3:10 says " you don't work, you don't eat." That's what Jesus would do and said, along with the apostle Paul.
Piggy backing off the WWJD, the Apostle Paul in 2 Thes 3: 6 - 14 suggests if you don't work you don't eat. How has the liberals overlooked these instructions? Paul of the Springs.
There was a story on Saturday on Jeff Cranks show about Richard Skorman. I haven't heard anything about it this week. Was it a bogus story?  
FBI should be renamed Federal Brownshirts of Investigation.
Downers Grove, IL
Can we please get Southwest Airlines???

ONE OF THE BEST EVER


Friday, February 16, 2018

THESE ARE POSTINGS FROM THE FIRST DAY OF THE FLORIDA SHOWING AND FROM MY FACEBOOK ACCOUNT.

SHOULD GOOD DECENT LAW ABIDING CITIZENS LIKE ME HAVE TO GIVE UP THEIR GUNS? WOULD IT PREVENT MORE SCHOOL SHOOTINGS? WHAT, IF ANYTHING, WILL?
HERE ARE THE TEXT MESSAGES I GOT DURING THIS MORNING'S RADIO PROGRAM.
Good morning Insight: no more school shootings. We need mass action. Safe first! The plan: Security/Safety, all schools. 9:06 PM
Proactive! Every school in the USA, should be reviewing security and safety procedures Two officers outside, two inside. Money to build a border wall. Money for safety of our children while in school. Please no playing the, party blame game. Proactive. Less talk, action gets it done.
Yes! Arm those teacher who are willing take weapon training courses. Common Sense President 🇺🇸 9:06
Good morning🇺🇸 Insight: money for military parade. (10-30 million dollars) Why not shift that money to help provide schools 11:35 PM
security/safety Officers Common Sense President 🇺🇸 11:35 PM
Good morning 🇺🇸 Insight: this is very sad! Proactive Security/Safety in all schools, that's what should be implemented. The President, should initiate. (This is the last shooting in our schools) From the very first school shooting, it should had been implemented. Blame is place on one person, and that's the shooter. They knew he was a threat, being proactive could have prevented this. Today! A parent, A student, a teacher, a school superintendent, knows of a person who could be a threat. Proactive is the key! The person of interest needs help! Proactive, proactive, proactive, is the key! Put reliable vets to work, they protected the country, let them protect, the future of this great country. No more! Talking is not getting it done. The best minds in this country can! Less talk, more action! I say this sadly, I'm so glad my daughters have finished their institutional education. Common Sense President 🇺🇸 7:17 AM
+Good morning 🇺🇸
Insight: Proactive! All school bus, should have a driver and a safety monitor. Common Sense President 🇺🇸 8:32 AM
Good morning 🇺🇸
Insight: some politicians are too close to their own tree and fail to see the forest of their constituency! Common Sense 9:53 AM
There are so many people who play video games. I'm not sure they are terribly influential as we would like to think they are. What DOES influence is the militant left who say its okay to destroy life if you are a victim or racism, etc Rachel flick spoke of this. To your previous caller, shall we outlaw TV's, movies, etc? That's a slippery slope. Our culture simply has no respect for life. 9:46 AM
Dept of Ed needs to stop funding special classes for kids here illegally, stop making special accommodations for kids that can't decide which sex they want to be and START defending the majority of kids that need protection from trained, armed teachers. Also, why do our local schools & this school in FL expel kids that pose a threat, then let them back in a year later? 8:45 AM
In my family we have 2 teachers in local high schools. We have 2 high school students in our family. All 4 are trained, legal marksmen, the 2 adults, however, can't use their firearms skills at work, meaning they would be potential victims even tho they would save lives if allowed to carry. How can anyone argue against teachers being able to conceal carry to protect our kids!? 8:51 AM
There are many things we can do to thwart school shootings. How abt a mandatory gun safety program, k-12? The kids 'obsessed' with guns have no adult supervision. No one has instructed them, taken them to a range to satisfy curiosity. Ignorance is curtailed with education. 9:43 AM
Trigger locks 9:42 AM

Enough is NOT Enough!!! 8:36 AM
We need people buy more guns!!! 8:36 AM
Our stock should go up!!! 8:37 AM
Please Richard.. tell your radio-listeners to go and buy more guns from %$#?*&!!! 8:37 AM
In fact.. please put your ads for %$#?*& Shooting Center!!! 8:38 AM
I love it! 8:38 AM
Buy guns!!! Buy guns!!! 8:38 AM
Arming everybody!!! 9:16 AM
Time to buy stocks!!! 9:16 AM
I am not wrong!!! Buy more guns!!! Buy more guns!!! 9:17 AM
Answer, this question... how many people, mass crime are happing around USA... and you justify you bought a gun because you are afraid somebody will go to your... 9:18 AM
I bet you, you have not have anyone trying going to your home!!! 9:19 AM
You are liar... I have been living here in Colorado Springs fir more than 15 years WITHOUT ANY GUN!!! and I live and sleep 100% secure!!! 9:20 AM
People do not need guns at home!! 9:20 AM
Great Trump!!! 9:29 AM
Take an action!!! 9:29 AM
Close %$#?*& Shooting Center!!! 9:29 AM
Have the balls!!! 9:29 AM
He did not do anything!!!! Bla, bla, bla!!! 9:30 AM

Yes the current caller does have a good idea but if something like that is implemented, it wouldn't take very long for the other crazies to start complaining about us becoming a police state. 9:28 AM
I'm from Colorado Springs....active duty....as regards to the Mass shootings....why don't we use the military. Construct a Battalion or brigade size element devoted to focusing on domestic terrorism... securing schools, and or other areas. This will cost a lot less as active duty gets paid salary. 9:23 AM
Richard, I tend to believe that god installs anger in our hearts in order to help us combat evil, I also wish the young man was killed but I wish it was by a teacher or staff member early in the act of murder to show that sheep can be protected by a guard dog, taking the guard dog away and letting every predator know the dog isn't allowed on the premises is ridiculous Cole. 9:21 AM
I believe the death penalty should be used more as a deterrent 9:17 AM
That madman is not a "shooter", He is a MURDERER. Let's be clear on that. 9:11 AM
Yes- arm the teachers- but what happens when the SWAT team shows up and blows the teacher holding the gun away, thinking he's the perp? Do you think they'll ask to see his ID badge first? 9:07
Hey Richard Mark Ross here. A wolf is a wolf. If you take away his firearm he'll find some other way to kill the sheep. If you disarm the sheepdogs then the wolf can just eat as many sheep as he wants. 8:53
You're not going to start the tin foil hat, conspiracy junk again, are you? 8:43 AM
Pueblo, CO Again Richard, your good God in his word says to hate evil 8:42 AM
Alamosa, CO It's ok the killer is alive he will get his in state prison many times over 8:39 AM
The shooter in Florida is a product of cultural decline. 8:38 AM
What stupid question Richard? 10:00 AM
Are you trying to say... it is OK "legal" people have the right to make a crime?... 10:00 AM
What stupid question!!!! 10:01 AM
You anti immigration mind is making you make stupid question... we should be happy then "legal " people make a crime!!! 10:02 AM
Crime, exist... because we are humans... nothing to do who the stupid status... you are going "legal" people make mass of crimes.. and just 1% of us ("illegal ") make a crime!!! 10:03 AM
Do not stereotype us!!! We are not criminals!!! We are people like you, your co-workers and your family!!! We are not a bunch of criminals!!! 10:04 AM
Me: I will read this on the air tomorrow... but I want to be clear... I DO NOT hate you or your children or family, friends, or coworkers. I AM in favor of President Trump's plan for dreamers. Do you have a problem with a border wall, an end to chain migration, and visa lottery? Do you think it is wrong to make Dreamers get in line behind those who are coming here legally? 10:12 AM
I'm OK with a wall and the existing immigrantions laws only allows to bring close family!!! Why you do not bring a immigration lawyer to you program... we "illegal" pay for it... and ask to him/her if with the existing law I can bring Grand Parents or all my relatives... only Wife, son and parents... I do not see nothing wrong about it... do you see it? 10:17 AM
The problem.. is Trump and the extreme right is totally against hispanic... and they want to us to buy the idea.. I can bring my cousins or any relatives.. and it is not true!!! 10:19 AM
Bring a immigration lawyer and I pay for it!!! 10:20 AM
Let's educate your radio-listeners how that family-chain does not exist!!! 10:20 AM
What is wrong to bring my Wife, my son and my Parents? 10:21 AM
And I am totally agree to put dreamers back in line... I am in line since 2003!!! It is not an easy process!!! 10:22 AM
But the real problem is employers!!! They do not care about their own people.. 10:23 AM
They only care about profits!!! 10:23 AM
Welcome to the capitalism world!!! 10:24 AM

Why? approved of trump allowing 75,000 severely mentally ill to people to purchase guns. I am a proud and responsible gun went and unlike you, think 19 school shootings in 6 weeks is enough! Common sense gun regulation. What will it take, loss of a loved one because thT number is starting to become large

David Gerstel It is up to mental health to determine what diagnosis and severity merit inability to own a gun. Since 1960, more people in this country have been killed by guns than all our ears combined. Japan had 10 deaths master year versus our 33,000. 19 school shootings this year yet NRA and irresponsible gun owners are even against universal back ground checks
