This Lawmaker’s Answer to Homelessness Will Make You Sick

Abby Martin calls out Hawaii State Representative Tom Brower, for his crusade against the homeless, highlighted by the smashing of shopping carts with a sledgehammer. Abby contrasts Brower, with the heroic actions of citizens of New Orleans, and Boulder, Coloardo, who have staged ‘sleep-outs’ in order to build awareness of homeless issues and raise money for the cause.

    I am all for shopping cart destruction. As long as they say “Walmart” on them and are confined to that “fourth circle”.

    Liberated carts are another matter entirely. They provide a service to the community by their use as a recycling tool and, in addition, are capable of speeds in excess of 70 mph under the right conditions (no fossil fuels required, see “Carts of Darkness”).

    It would’ve been a better idea, if this man were truly serious about “cleaning up” his community, to swing the sledgehammer at his own Audi/Mercedes/Acura/Lexus/BMW.
