Aaron Flint mentioned that the young Afghan refugee charged with rape here in Missoula won’t have his work visa taken away.
Seems to me it’s already been decided that he’ll be let out with most serious charges dropped. Nice little slap on the wrist.
How should the young 18-year-old woman that was raped feel? Well, I imagine she’s white, and therefore privileged...so she should probably just get over it.
That’s the message we’re getting from the feds when they allow this refugee to potentially stay in the country and work here after all this is done.
That’s right...if you’re a foreigner that rapes someone, you can keep working.
If you’re a truck driver, doctor, nurse, police officer, firefighter, or soldier that refuses to get vaccinated, you cannot.
It’s because we know what’s important in America today.
Here are some other things we hold dear.
For over a year now, the Pov has been telling us that they have “capacity issues” due to covid, and this means they can’t house the normally 175 or so people that would stay there.
The CDC set out these guidelines, and I can’t help but think there’s an evil intention behind it to flood city streets with homeless people that might otherwise be in shelters, creating tent cities all across the land, not just in Seattle and San Francisco and LA. This helps tear communities apart, which seems to be the overriding goal of those in power today.
So how many can the Pov house now each night? Because the Johnson Street warming shelter can house 150.
Then we have the tent city heading out toward Lolo that can house 40.
The site behind the current homeless camp on Reserve is nearing approval, and is set to house at least 60 (30 shelters, which might house even more).
On top of this, two more potential tent encampment locations are being sought, but no generous landowners have stepped forward yet to offer.
And the potential number of homeless is probably close to 500, and likely over.
During the summer, the homeless outreach team worked with 271 people in Missoula. I’m sure there were a lot more folks that didn’t want any outreach.
That’s up from the 144 people they worked with in summer 2020.
If the Pov is full with around 100, Johnson with 150, and then about 100 at the tent cities...that’s 350 right there...not counting the YWCA shelter, people sleeping in cars, couch surfing, and those in the Reserve Street camp and others sleeping God knows where.
The cost of all this is immense. The city and county have already spent several million in federal money to deal with the homeless problem...and the problem is only getting worse.
So they’ll spend more money, and the problem will get worse than now.
They claim housing is a right...unless you have a job and struggle to pay rent in this town. Then you don’t matter. It’s only when you’re kicked from your home that the local politicians and nonprofits will ‘care’ about you...and that’s only so long as they keep getting grants to do so.
If the money dried up, so would their care.
As Corrupt As You Can Get
Of the many FDA Board members that approved the Pfizer vaccine for 5-11-year-olds this week, at least seven of them have worked for Pfizer or been on studies sponsored by the Big Pharma giant.
Here’s an excerpt from an article that appeared on National File a couple days ago:
“Members include a former vice president of Pfizer Vaccines, a recent Pfizer consultant, a recent Pfizer research grant recipient, a man who mentored a current top Pfizer vaccine executive, a man who runs a center that gives out Pfizer vaccines, the chair of a Pfizer data group, a guy who was proudly photographed taking a Pfizer vaccine, and numerous people who are already on the record supporting Coronavirus vaccines for children. Meanwhile, recent FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb is on Pfizer’s board of directors.”
But let’s be real - all that time they spent working for the company and all that salary...it’s not a conflict of interest, not at all. Don’t be silly!
