New York’s Helping the Homeless Problem

Letter to Cuomo and de Blasio on the Homeless


Gov. Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio are battling again.  Both are ideologues and have no pragmatic sense about how to run a city or a state. They are trying to be the champions of the homeless in order make themselves  look like humanitarians.


“If you walk around New York City, it’s hard to not conclude that we have a homeless problem,” Cuomo said in the New York Post. 


But he doesn’t understand that our problem is that the homeless are infringing upon the quality of city life and making New York a Third World City.  We want to help the homeless not just to be generous  but to make life better for the rest of us who have slaved for the capitalistic system and dedicated ourselves to our country.


The homeless are not our priority.  We are.


Yes, we have to help them but not so much for them, who have failed.  But in order to keep New York a jewel  that is admired throughout the world.


A city is not remembered in history for its homeless but for splendid homes.
