Earlier today, Twitchy reported on Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s plan to help the homeless in his city: a warehouse full of garbage bins for homeless people who need a safe place to store their belongings. “The new Bin site will be filled with community spaces and resources,” he tweeted.
This news follows news that Los Angeles has yet to complete a single building three years after voters approved $1.2 billion in housing for the homeless — and found that it would cost an average of $531,373 to build each apartment.
Oakland is faring about as well with dealing with its homeless problem, and Oakland City Council President Rebecca Kapan has proposed moving about 1,000 homeless people to a cruise ship docked at the port of Oakland.

What about a big cruise ship thats built on the land. Like a land houseboat. How about that.

Lol. This sounds like an misconceived repackaging of debtors prison ships.

With local governments history of shipping their homeless to other cities, I find a city's plan to literally put the homeless on SHIPS to be problematic.

Honestly, even when they are full of not bums, cruise ships are not a place you want to be when people are ill.

What could possibly go wrong? Do you WANT to wipe them all out with one communicable disease? Oh, right…maybe?

Should we allow more housing in California to increase the supply and reduce cost?
No way, let's just rent a cruise ship for hobos.

This is the most Oakland solution for an easily solved problem.

Y'all will try anything before providing actual housing

Portland needs more housing.
– Why don't we force businesses to host tent cities in their lobbies?
Oakland needs more housing.
– We could use cruise ships, maybe?
San Francisco needs more housing.
– Maybe some experimental tiny house thing?

What about those apartments made out of shipping containers that cost around $35,000 to convert? Las Vegas has some to show off.
And these are the solutions coastal progressives are coming up with.
Move over, shipping container apartments, and make room for PodShare https://t.co/MGHgdNG4VH
