BY RUSH LIMBAUGH: UK Daily Mail story. Hawaii has set aside $100,000 to offer all 17,000 homeless people there one-way airfare back to the mainland. Wherever their home states are. Whatever their home state is, if they know, if they remember. “Hawaii is hoping to take the burden off its welfare system by saying aloha to its 17,000 homeless residents. The state will offer one-way tickets home to any eligible homeless person to anywhere in the continental United States. Hawaii has allotted $100,000 for a three year trial run of the so-called ‘return-to-home’ program, which could also even offer participants beds on cruise ships bound for their homes.”
That’s how badly Hawaii wants to be rid of them. I thought, you know, the homeless, every Christmas we’re told to be very, very understanding and compassionate of the homeless because, you know, Mary and Joseph were homeless, and the next savior could come from the homeless, we’ve gotta be really compassionate and understanding. Now, Hawaii is full-fledged Democrat and leftist, Democrat and worse. And they’re tired of ’em. (interruption) No, if you’re homeless and you want a vacation in Hawaii, don’t go there, ’cause they’re gonna kick you out. They’re gonna give you money to get back home. (interruption) Oh, okay. So get a one-way ticket to Hawaii, and then go on the homeless rolls for a while until they find you and then they’ll kick you out and get a free vacation, and a free trip back home.
Now, imagine this. Let’s say that they actually implement this. Can you imagine airline flights leaving Hawaii? They’ve got all these vacationers, which would include a bunch of liberals, I mean, liberals go to Hawaii. Got all these liberal whiners and do-gooders having a cow over all of these mean and evil Republicans and the new laws being enacted and so forth, anti-homeless and so forth, and it’s been the Democrats, “We must help these people.” It’s the Democrats that have had Dumpster diving videos, you know, how to eat healthfully from a Dumpster. And it’s been the Democrats who’ve been telling the Republicans and everybody else that it’s the Republicans that are cold-hearted and mean-spirited and don’t care about the homeless and don’t have any compassion for ’em, and now Hawaii stands up and is basically saying, “We will pay to get rid of you. All you have to do is show up and we’ll put you on a one-way flight outta here.”
Now, imagine you’re on the flight, you’re a liberal vacationer, time to go home and some guy’s trying to get on the airplane with his shopping cart and put it in the overhead compartment. And the flight attendant says, “No, you can’t bring the shopping cart on board. It won’t fit. And, no, you can’t check the shopping cart.” The homeless might refuse to go if they can’t take their home with ’em. And wait ’til the cruise ships, wait ’til the cruise lines get a load of this. (laughing) Seriously, folks. A hundred thousand dollars to just get rid of ’em.
Hawaii has no more compassion. They don’t have any more money. They don’t have any ability to take care of them. They just want them gone. What if other states started doing the same type of thing?
