All the animals on the farm are equal, except the special animals that are more equal, like blacks, illegal aliens, Muslims, homosexuals, cross-dressing freakazoids, and soon — derelicts:
Rhode Island’s governor is expected to sign into law the first “Homeless Bill of Rights” in the United States as early as next week, formally banning discrimination against homeless people and affirming their equal access to jobs, housing and services.
This translates to: My job qualification is that I live in a puddle of regurgitated Thunderbird under an overpass. You’d better hire me or I’ll sue.
Among other steps, the Rhode Island law would guarantee homeless people the right to use public sidewalks, parks and transportation as well as public buildings, like anyone else “without discrimination on the basis of his or her housing status.”
You don’t have to be a police officer to figure out what effect this will have on the maintenance of orderly public conduct.
It guarantees a “reasonable expectation of privacy” with respect to personal belongings similar to that of people who have homes.
So when the sidewalk is blocked by an elaborate display of chicken bones dug out of the garbage, you’d best just walk in the street.
It’s unclear whether the bill will include a right to free puppies.
Supporters say the law was necessary due to “discrimination.” Where do normal people go to have the privilege of “discrimination” bestowed upon them?
Rhode Island’s governor is a former RINO the GOP backed against a conservative challenger for the Senate, only to watch him lose to a leftist and then leave the party. If you’re trying to explain to someone why “moderates” need to be driven out of the Republican Party and off the end of the nearest pier, make your case in two words: Lincoln Chafee.
