Florida first in homeless attacks!‏

I’ve been looking at the news here at a hotel due to the fact that my aunts house burnt down and what is the main head line that makes the news on the bright house channel 13 correspondence? The fact that the state of Florida is number one in attacks on the homeless with 30 attacks last year and three of those being fatal attacks. All over my Facebook page I’ve been keeping up with events that have to do with the homeless as to keep any room for potential open as an effort of progress is meant to be made as the economic struggles of this nation continue to make it harder and harder for those that are homeless to have the ability to get of the streets and stay off the streets.

I thank you for taking notice of the fact that I had called, wondering what is going on with the rural aspect of homelessness as the county of Polk here in Florida is becoming a newly infested breeding ground for the low-incomed and I feel that if some thing is not done to bring for that an awareness of the fact that this particular area of Florida needs to be brought up to par with the changes in standards of living assumptions and considerations of different aspects of assistance to keep this from becoming a targeted area such as Miami/Dade.

Changing the Definition of Homelessness!

A proposal begin before the end of the last congressional session to predetermine what is considered as being defined homeless. Although the consideration has not been settled as the economic state in which this nation is in it would be a wise suggestion to allow determination in the regards of budgeting and spending purposes to define exactly what homeless is.

There are many states of homelessness as there are levels of homelessness in which this nation has considered a predetermined amount of money to be used in the consideration of each state and level that is witnessed through-out each city and state that wishes to receive government assistance in this matter. The current conditions of homelessness that are up for consideration are that of families that are residing in motel rooms on a weekly basis and the conditions in which a person is couch surfing in which multiple families are residing in a single family dwelling. Also under current consideration is the fact that re-entry of prisoners is being questioned as a purposed amendment to determine applicable situations.

The state that this nation is in as an economic determination is the reasoning behind making more specific determinations of what homelessness is amongst this society. There are to many single mothers and families that are in one of the purpose conditions of homelessness that are not being allowed the proper services that are designed to aid those in a homeless condition. This alone bring forth the consideration of allowing homelessness to being defined in detail rather in a rural setting or an urban area to receiving the proper assistance that is needed to better equip them into maintaining permanent affordable housing.

Senators urged to expand hate crimes legislation

More than 77,000 hate crime incidents were reported by the FBI between 1998 and 2007.

Thats nearly one hate crime for every hour of every day over the span of a decade.

In light of such statistics, U.S Attorney General Eric Holder said that the influence of ‘hate crimes bills’ was one of his “highest personal priorities … is to do everything I can to ensure this critical legislation finally becomes law.”

As this current attempt to bring forth an understanding of those that seek to deny the humanity that we all share, regardless of the color of our skin, the God to whom we pray or the person who we choose to love, join me to bring this attention to the legislators of the state of Florida.
