I am compelled to write this entry because of a string of homeless conversation that has been happening over the last 4 days. I had a class Saturday, although I did not attend I had a very good reason- I was on the Big Island taking pictures of the lava flow. A groupmember emailed me the brainstorming outcome of the day and it was "Removing the homeless from Oahu beaches". I thought it to be an unchallenging and dry topic.
Yesterday, I read and commented on Doug TenNapel's site on an entry where he discusses an encounter with a crazed homeless person. There were some news segments about the homeless in Hawaii because of the torrential rain we had a few weeks ago and various other issues of the homeless.
Although it is crude, cruel, dispecable and heartless I have a plan to rid Hawaii of its homeless, thus relieving the social and financial burdens the homeless place on the residents and visitors of this island paradise.
The US Navy has a graveyard of outdated ships just rusting away in West Loch. Give the bums their own ship so they can make use of the staterooms and bunkrooms.
In the middle of the night, tow the ship outside the 12 mile limit and use live ordinance to sink it.
1. There will be another artificial reef to promote and sutain sea life.
2. Space will be freed up in the harbor for commercial and residential development.
3. No more insane homeless.
4. The Navy gets weapons proficiency.
It's a win-win proposition.
