Living the Life of Riley

The Los Angeles City Council on Friday voted to put a controversial hotel housing proposal on the November 2024 ballot. 

The measure proposes that L.A. motels and hotels take in homeless people and provide rooms for them alongside paying guests.

*****

The article goes on to say that the program wouldn't be voluntary but what I'm wondering is who's going to pay the owners for the damages you know they'll incur, and who's going to foot the bill for the eradication of vermin after each 'guest' checks out, the taxpayers or the owners?

  1. one of the dumbest things I can think of. I mean why pay for a room if they going to give them away to the homeless ? and just who is going to pay for the damages to said rooms ?
    let alone the water, electric and heat/cooling bills ? US ?

  2. These people making the rules. Why don't they let them into their homes? I'm sure they have a spare room or two, garage or outbuildings.

    1. That will be next: people with "extra" bedrooms will be forced to house the homeless.

  3. A telling argument about the psychology at work.... we will vote to make something happen, but not pay for it! That is always someone elses problem. Look at the border issue with the bussing of illegals into NYFC: as long as it happened it Texas they didn't care, but a couple thousand hit their streets, send in the nat'l guard!

    1. Texas sending illegals deeper into America was an idiotic move.

      Note that DC didn't call out the guard to keep the illegals out of America...just out of DC.

    2. The Feds were flying them deeper into the country anyway. Just mostly to Red States as a form of punishment. If it spreads the pain to DC and NYC and places like that, it wasn't idiotic.

    3. Berlander, have you forgotten the hue and cry when TX sent illegals to DC was, 'TX is interfering with them settling in their chosen cities!!1'

      Fedgov already was spreading illegals around the country. Actually flying.

    I travel for work and stay in places that have full kitchens like Residence Inn, TownePlace Suites, Hyatt House, etc. and in several across the country it seems that they will have what appears to be low income residents. I tend not to return once I experience that as a hotel that does that does not need my business travel dollars since it appears they are taking public dollars and housing what ends up to be problems for real paying guests.

    1. Before retirement I used to be put up in Woodsprings hotels. I hated those places because of the constant police presence and drugs.

      Thankfully the last couple of places my company put me up in were Airbnb's. Much nicer than staying in a hotel.

    2. Mike G, ever stay in a Vrbo place? Their ads keep touting that your whole family gets to stay together in a great vacation home. Looking at the happy people in the ads, all I can conclude is "Rent your home through Vrbo and you will have lots of Negroes in your place."

  6. It's bad enough using a public hotel room after other strangers have used it. Using a room after people who live for weeks at a time without access to hygiene facilities is a horrifying prospect. Even with the showers and toilet facilities in the room, the clothing and belongings of the homeless tenants will be beyond filthy, and the personal habits of the mentally ill and/or substance abusers are not ideal even with available facilities. There will be an explosion of bed bugs in every hotel room in LA. A 1995 study of mentally ill homeless persons in New York City found a violent crime rate 40 times higher than the violent crime rate among mentally ill persons who were housed. Who wants to pay more than $100 per night to sleep next to a filthy predator? This is a great way to destroy tourism in LA.

  7. Similar to when Germany took over private hotels kicked everyone out and moved in islamic -refugees- invaders

  8. Intentionally destroying income property (taxed), creating abandoned buildings for the homeless, eventually.
    It is a creative approach to housing and building back better.
    We need more government like this, retards?

  9. This is a "taking" under the 5th Amendment to the Constitution. If the government wants to house individuals, then they have to pay just compensation. The owners should refuse, get fined, and then bring the matter to court and have a judge declare that just compensations is the room rental rate, with a credit card or a month and a half rental as security deposit against damages. Plus the hotel will get attorney's fees as a result. As soon as the government is paying market rate, they will no longer be interested.

    1. You're overestimating the judges.

  10. "As soon as the government is paying market rate, they will no longer be interested." They are spending your money and my money; they could not care less how much this costs. They get to signal their virtue by housing the homeless, and that will gain favor with their progressive/socialist/communist base. Buying votes with your money is what they are all about.

    1. The government is way past spending taxpayer's money - they are spending fake money and going further into debt to an amount that future generations can not pay and this house of cards is going to collapse soon.

  11. You are making the very big assumption that the "guests" will 'check out'. Given what happened with Katrina, once in, they will stay forever. Then try to 'evict' them.

  12. Given the use of antifa and blm for street violence, and the number of the same who are probably homeless or at least migratory, this could also fall under the 3rd amendment, no "soldier" should be quartered in any house without the consent of the owner.

  13. They better plan on tripling the LAPD budget, including manpower. Or maybe the hotels could just give out free needles and fentanyl, and never have to worry about the homeless getting into the rooms.

  14. Two years ago I was in Orange County right at the LA County line. I booked a hotel room for one week. I stayed only one night.

    Whole families of diversity had taken over lounging in the lobby, traipsing through the hallways all night, raising a ruckus in the parking lot (blocking the exterior door open), and more.
    The next morning I saw needles and trash throughout the parking lot.

    The desk clerk explained by saying the hotel sells the rooms to gov for more dollars than to the traveler. He profusely denied any knowledge of drug dealing or use.

  15. I flew down to Baton Rouge the year after Katrina to attend a big company meeting . They put us up in a big inner city hotel that by any standards had at one time a world class hotel . But ! It was a total mess . Cigarette burns on every wooden surface and holes in the carpets where smokes had been stepped on and ground into the carpet . Holes knocked into the walls . Curtains shredded and one somebody had wiped their ass on . At $200 a night I felt cheated and the Company was buying . When we got back to the hotel at midnight the foyer was full of whores sitting waiting on customers . The smallest one I would estimate as being 350 pounds . None of them were white . Or even tan . Or Mulotto . I kept my dick and my money in my pants .

  16. I think what they are after is to drive out private hotel ownership and have the government run it. Next on the list will be people who own second houses. Neighbors will tell the government that a house is empty for a month. Next month homeless or illegals will be living in it.

    The hotels may convert themselves to condos to get around this. And then do nightly rentals of the condos. Let the games begin.

    1. If they can take a hotel, they can take condo or a house. One step leads to the next.

  17. I'd never stay in a hotel which was or had participated in housing the street people.
