Seattle's homeless crisis episode 8: Aloha and good riddance to Share and Wheel

On highway 99 north of Seattle past Denny Way and the space needle is what was once an abandoned hotel that was later taken over by homeless people and made into a community living center and halfway home for the homeless. It is run by the homeless and formerly homeless and is a shining beacon of what personal responsibility, initiative and Christian love can accomplish.

Aloha was originally started by SHARE with help from Catholic charities and the archdiocese of Seattle in 1990. At the time, SHARE was in its infancy when share was made up of sturdy yet responsible homeless men and women who rather than go to the government for a handout stood up for themselves and picked themselves up from their bootstraps.

Aloha was run by SHARE with help from Catholic charities. Then around the last decade SHARE began its slow decline into irresponsibility, corruption and laziness and Aloha staff and residents became alarmed by SHARE WHEEL'S tactics.

Share wheel became more and more left wing, more corrupt and allegations of withholding bus tickets, discrimination and forcing its members to participate in far left protests with groups such as Occupy Wall street, Seattle socialists, Women in black and others brought about negative attention not just from the public but from the FBI and police as well.

Kimberly H, a formerly homeless woman who was part of SHARE and a resident of the Aloha Inn for over a year, remembers those dark times.

"SHARE and WHEEL used to be a good organization and I know that good people are still in it but over the years, more and more people came into the organization that really just didn't give a darn about themselves or other people in the organization. Share wheel is or was I should say democratic. The people who were part of the organization were in charge. It used to be people who had a job, who were clean and sober and who were trying to get back on their feet but more and more people came in that were lazy, were drinking and who didn't really care."

Kimberly says that after over a decade of progress and helping the homeless, SHARE went downhill as more and more people, unaccountable for their behavior and more interested in laying about being lazy took over the shelter and became the majority. These people were made up of drunks, radical leftists, people who were just plain lazy and who didn't really care about getting out of homeless but whose who did not care and were happy remaining homeless while receiving free food, free money and a place to crash.

She says, "Before I went to the Aloha, things really got bad at SHARE. At the shelter I stayed you had more people coming in who showed up drunk, who didn't do their chores, they left a mess and to make matters worse, the people who cared began to leave for their new homes and emerge from homelessness while the ones who didn't care became the majority and they didn't leave they usually stuck around since they didn't care."

Eventually, as the lazy and undeserving got the majority they began to have more say in the goings on in Share and in Share shelters. This new wave of bums elected an EC who allowed members to break rules, show up intoxicated, show up late and leave a mess.

"The EC who ran our shelter was a drunk and he did nothing about the problems in the shelter. People would show up drunk and instead of being told to leave or get banned the EC just let them in. People would leave a mess and not clean it up and the EC rather than baring them from the shelter for a day or more as punishment just said nothing. When the church complained and when SHARE staff complained that we weren't holding accountability and making problems for the church and the neighborhood, the EC did nothing"

Not only this, those who spoke up and demanded reform were intimidated or stigmatized...

"Our shelter had to close for 2 days as punishment for liquor bottles being found in the garbage can and because no one did chores in our shelter. I and three other people did all the chores and went to meetings but no one else did. Not even the EC. I had to stay at a dirty downtown shelter then I had to sleep out in the woods. I couldn't sleep because it was cold and I was afraid of being raped.

"Two days after when we got back, one of the shelter guests showed up drunk and filthy and was not asked to leave or even barred. The EC did nothing. When I spoke up and said that we should bar him he just gave me this nasty look like he wanted to smack me. When it was time to sign up for chores I noticed that there were three mandatory meetings we had to do which no one signed up for. I brought this to the EC's attention and he said don't worry about it. I then brought this to everyone's attention. I yelled, hey! We got three meetings to sign up for! When I said that one man call me a bitch and told me to shut up. That was rude and the EC did nothing about it.

"Well we didn't do the chores and our shelter got closed again and we spent another night outside. I had it and I went to the Aloha. Most people there are like me and fed up with the trouble SHARE and we didn't want anything to do with them."

At the Aloha, Kimberly found a caring staff that took their work seriously. Kimberly had access to a kitchen, laundry room, garage for cars belonging to staff and guests at  the shelter who had them and a place for pets as well as daycare. Kimberly was required to do chores and pay a portion of her income which she received from government assistance and working part time for rent and another portion to go towards housing. Kimberly got a second part time job as a car washer and auto detailer.

"It was like the good ol days of Share. Before all the riff raff came in, before the moral majority left for housing or elsewhere and got replaced by the drunks, the bums, the lazy and shiftless and aimless, before Scott Murrow became share consultant and sent everything out the window, before the share supervisors were just screwing everything up and not finding solutions. I was so happy to be here. This place truly was a good place and a loving place. When I first got there, I got nothing but hugs and kisses and love. I don't know where I'd be without them!"

SHARE uses Aloha Inn's services including laundry and cooking meals during important events like power lunch, a meeting where decisions on SHARE administration and policy is made. Share clients often came into Aloha causing trouble however and many times, came to logger heads with Aloha staff and guests.

A typical Power lunch meeting held by SHARE WHEEL where the bums decide how to make trouble in Seattle and America

"Share still used Aloha for blanket washing, for food, breakfast, coffee other things, sometimes they'd go into the kitchen and steal things and bring them back to Share like a blender, a pepper grinder, a frying pan and one time they even tried to hijack the ice cream machine we had. It was good thing and I used to love making yummy deserts with it using fruits and chocolate and marshmallows and then it was gone. We found it at one of the indoor shelters I think it was Bethany either that or St Johns but they broke it and we couldn't use it anymore it was sad."

Kimberly notes other instances when SHARE guests even SHARE staff started trouble

  • Share guests tried to break into rooms and storage areas and steal belongings from Aloha guests
  • Share guests created a racial disturbance when a Share guest who was a black panther openly antagonized Jewish, asian and white Aloha guests by calling for their extermination and also denying the holocaust or the Nanking massacre ever happened
  • Share guests who were in the laundry room washing blankets were caught having gay sex with each other while they were drunk
  • share guests who arrive for meetings, for lunch or chores would often be in possesion of alcohol, drugs or other paraphenalia or be intoxicated
  • Share guests would run across the median barrier on Highway 99 and nearly cause accidents in order to get to the bus stop on the other side.
  • A Share guest attempted to rape a woman in the parking lot at night. The Share guest was an EC of a shelter
And on and on. And what happened next when Aloha tried to curtail the incidents caused by Share was even more outrageous!

"Well it turned out the managers of Aloha decided that Share guests who utilized the Aloha Inn should be required to where ID badges stating that they were SHARE guests. This is a policy we already had for other visitors and people who worked in Aloha Inn. The plumber for instance, wore a badge which said what company he belonged to and his name. For SHARE we didn't require their names just that it said that they were part of Share Wheel and what shelter."

SHARE staff and guests refused to where the badges claiming that being forced to do so marginalized them and made them feel as though they were being targeted  for discrimination, this despite the fact that all other non-aloha guests who visited or perform work there were required to wear buttons and badges. Many compared the badges to the star belly Sneetches by Dr Seuss and to the yellow stars the nazis forced Jews to wear during the holocaust.

"I couldn't believe it! How did we go from keeping the building secure and keeping track of visitors to nazis forcing Jews to wear yellow stars!? I thought it was a waste of time and it was. They still misbehaved."

In response SHARE members showed up wearing special badges with slogans such as, second class citizen targeted by Aloha, Discrimination in progress, marginalized and discriminated ETC. This infuriated and offended Aloha residents and staff but they still wore them. Despite this and other measures, Share continued to cause trouble for Aloha.

Fed up with Share's lack of accountability and allegations of theft of funds, Aloha inn decided to break away from Share and become more independent, relying on funds from Catholic charities and the archdiocese of Seattle-Tacoma. In 2015 Aloha became independent. Share still does laundry there at times but only the tent cities wash blankets there. Many of the indoor shelters turn to local laundromats.

Kimberly H currently resides in Spokane where she lives in her own apartment. She is thankful to the original Share and the Aloha inn for their support. She is currently employed full time and volunteers at local shelters in Spokane.

Seattle's homeless crisis 7: Use Greyhound therapy it works!

In part 7, we discuss a solution to American homelessness and unemployment that no one except those who really are concerned are discussing. A way to get the homeless off the streets into employment and into housing while saving money in the long run. its something that liberals generally will not give into except as a last resort because they want to get the money by making the homeless problem prolonged and and visible and line their pockets. Its a policy that is being used in major cities and cash strapped states everywhere and in the case for those who want a job and a home its doing nicely.

I am of course talking about Greyhound therapy.

What it is is simple as it is effective, give the homeless an out and the chance to move to where there are jobs and good clean effective Christian charities by giving them Greyhound tickets out of where they are where there are no jobs, too much crime, no affordable housing, an uncaring society, a lack of hope and no place to go and into nice places with jobs and cheap rents.

I personally have done this myself when I volunteered at the homeless shelters in Bangor Maine and in Portsmouth NH. Poor, sad miserable wretches who can't find work, out of hope and in a sad sorry state had their hopes restored when I gave them the oppertunity to move to someplace like Kansas, Texas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, New Hampshire, Utah or wherever they could get a place and a job easily as opposed to filthy poor no jobs poverty Maine or wherever.

Go west young man! This was the motto of manifest destiny. This should be the motto for ending homelessness. As in bygone days when young men and women with enterprising spirits left the crowded slims of the east coast for the great vastness of the west in the plains, the prairie and the Gold Coast, so it should be for young unemployed and miserable men and women who are trapped in bad places run by Democrats and the filthy excrement that support them and vote for them.

High taxes lead to higher costs and fewer jobs. So do massive regulations. But liberals don't care. Despite 8 years of failure under Obama under whom we have seen far worse than could even be imagined under W, liberals continue to turn a blind eye. THEY EVEN BLAME THE VICTIM!

But I tell you! There are so many success stories of young men venturing into middle America to find their niche. People who I met who looked and looked and looked for months or years for a job in Maine and couldn't find it. They go to Kansas or Nebraska or Texas, two week later they got a job! Then in another two weeks or so, an apartment.

Rent is cheap in middle America and jobs are plentiful. This is because they still follow the founding father's precepts for a free market and a free society. It may be true that they might no pay well at first, but all work is honest and the low low low cost of living is compensation for this.

Middle America and the Southwest also tend to be more religious and thus more charitible. Christian charities, rescue missions and so on provide an excellent safety net for those desiring responsibility, sober living and decent and content living as they climb their way up the ladder. Something no government program ever has done or ever will do.

But as the Seattle city council considers this as an option for the problem of those displaced by the closure of SHARE WHEEL and the clearing of the jungle homeless camps in Seattle, Share wheel poo poos the idea. In one news report, one woman described Greyhound therapy as heartless and not the answer.

HEARTLESS!? NOT THE ANSWER!? As opposed to what? Sitting in filthy tents at city hall, having sex and using drugs out in the open and doing nothing while we struggle!? As opposed to leeching off the taxpayers while sturdy beggars and scruffy bums smoke pot and do no work? While homeless people who became homeless as a result of Obama, the Democrats and the high taxes struggle and suffer as they pine for a decent honest living!?

SHARE WHEEL opposes greyhound therapy and even goes as far as labeling those who want to leave Seattle as cowards, traitors, reactionaries and garbage who put themselves in their situation.

Maurice Newhope who stayed at share last summer describes the mentality of these hypocritical bums he met, these liberal fascists who opposed the right to travel while saying that they put themselves in this situation and caused themselves to be homeless not Obama. the overwhelming majority of SHARE WHEEL and all of SHARE WHEEL staff are major Obama supporters BTW as well as supporters of Hillary and Bernie so no wonder!

Yet as they label homeless victims who want an out as reactionaries and garbage they claim to be morally superior to all of us and that they know what is best. Clearly, the misgivings of bad intentions. The mentality of SHARE Wheel is revealed in its labeling of republicans and responsible homeless who want to leave as reactionaries and traitors all while demanding more of our money at the expense of higher and higher taxes and with it, more problems.

The view is clear, SHARE WHEEL either needs to shape up or ship out! If they don't want to play by the rules and if they want to say its everyone's fault but Obama and theirs, GET THEM OUT!

Seattle's homeless crisis episode 6 Share ally the Transit Riders union

In episode six and beyond, we'll take a look at SHARE WHEEL's allies. In this episode we'll discuss one of their biggest backers, the Transit Riders union.

According to liberals, TRU is about low income riders joining together with bus drivers to demand cheap effective transporation that works. Transportation for poor working citizens that is cheap, routes that will take them anywhere at anytime and to demand safer transportation.

It is anything but.

TRU is in truth more of a union for Metro bus drivers to demand higher salaries, lower accountability for bad behavior and ineptitude, less hours, more perks and higher taxes on the working man.

TRU allies with groups like SHARE WHEEL and Seattle Socialists to get its demands met and agitate. For example: 

  • extend the link light rail from downtown to the University district, Bellevue and North Gate, Raise taxes, raise salaries and don't punish us for abusing riders. 
  • Give riders lower fares to get to Northgate, extend the link light rail from downtown to the University district and North Gate, Raise taxes, raise salaries and don't punish us for abusing riders.  
  • Extend the rail to Angle lake, Federal way then Tacoma extend the link light rail from downtown to the University district and North Gate, Raise taxes, raise salaries and don't punish us for abusing riders. 
  • Bring back the free ride zone extend the link light rail from downtown to the University district and North Gate, Raise taxes, raise salaries and don't punish us for abusing riders.  
  • Create more bus routes to nowhere extend the link light rail from downtown to the University district and North Gate, Raise taxes, raise salaries and don't punish us for abusing riders.  
  • Bring back Metro routes to Downtown University to comply with rail extension, extend the link light rail from downtown to the University district and North Gate, Raise taxes, raise salaries and don't punish us for abusing riders.     
  • Hire more cops to punish fare jumpers and homeless people who camp out on the late owl, extend the link light rail from downtown to the University district and North Gate, Raise taxes, raise salaries and don't punish us for abusing riders.  

  You get the idea.

the latest bid by TRU to screw up Seattle is to set up an employment tax on business. What this does is tax businesses for creating a certain amount of jobs I think its up to 50 and then each of these jobs they have to pay a tax. In other words businesses are punished for hiring workers and creating jobs.

You gotta ask yourself, why would anyone want to support that? I mean why do you want to punish businesses for making jobs? What makes you think they wont lay off workers to increase profits? Don't we want them to do the opposite? Don't we want to reward businesses for creating jobs? Don't we want to reward productivity? Why would we want to tax a business for making jobs?

Maurice Newhope you may remember who was in Seattle last year working for us was at the TRU meeting and when it was over he confronted one of TRU's members who supported this initiative and asked how punishing businesses would make things better, the man claimed that Bush''s tax cuts failed so therefore soaking the rich would be the best solution. When Asked how it would effect small businesses he responded that everyone had to pay their share and sacrifice and that people who couldn't find work in Seattle were stupid. He then said that to oppose raising taxes was fascist.

Complete utter Bolshevism and deception from top to bottom! First of all, Bush's tax cuts worked very well! At least they worked well in red states that did not have leftists and raised taxes up the wazoo to pay for all the budget busting handouts for bums and lazy government workers so called. They cooled down the economy and brought an end to the recession that started in Clinton's last year and for the remainder of Bush's term until Democrats took over congress, the median unemployment nationwide was below the double digits. the only places where jobs were scarce was California, Massachusetts (Thanks a lot Mitt!) New York, Michigan, Wisconsin, The upper midwest, and pretty much all of New England and the Mid Atlantic with the exception of New Hampshire.

As for raising taxes, well history proves that has never worked. California for example loses jobs and skilled workers who pay taxes so there goes your tax base as well, Massachusetts when they established Romney care and taxed businesses for healthcare caused a massive slump in jobs and lead to Massachusetts being the only state that had negative net migration. (EVEN THE BUMS ON WELFARE WANTED OUT!)The state's healthcare industry also capsized from the loads of cases they couldn't handle leading to rationing. The only winners were big Pharma, Big government, Big medical and Greyhound.

TRU is made up of the worst communist liberals of all kinds. The hardcore bums who use the bus as a motel, the drivers who make New York drivers look prudish and look like Victorian butlers, communists, social activists, those who want to live off the few able to work or find work.

If there was ever reason to ban public service unions its TRU. Some of Share's other union allies such as the SEIU who benefit from working together with bums to avoid work while they line their pockets with our money.

TRU is connected with King county services who are currently letting the homeless use their administration building as their campsite to avoid having to do any work at all. TRU backs the squatters and have even threatened to shut down transit in the downtown area if they lay a hand on them.

No problem with that, Seattle would love to use SHARE and the plight of the needy to line their pockets  and raise taxes once again. Anyways they are too busy clearing out the jungle of homeless vagrants and campers to do anything right now. More on that next time.
