Has anything ever been done to reverse Reagan's policies that blew up the homeless problem

in the 80's? He closed a lot of the hospitals for the mentality ill and low cost housing aid etc? Has Biden talked at all about reversing any of this?

Just curious as I keep seeing these rightwing posts on FB showing the homeless in CA trying to blame liberals for the homeless problem. As if CA can help that it has nice weather in the winter when they count homeless people. From most everything I have read, this is much more of a federal issue.

Trump Going Down? NY DA's Key Witness Cohen Says Trump's In Big Trouble

Donald Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen is cooperating in the New York investigation into Trump’s finances. Cohen tells MSNBC’s Ari Melber that his 'cooperation is not over' and adds, 'the district attorney's office has millions of pages of documents…on Trump, The Trump Organization and other people.' Cohen says the key problem for Trump is 'that the truth will always come out.'

6 Months After Surviving COVID, 1 in 3 Have Neurological or Psychiatric Problems

One in three people who overcome COVID-19 suffer from a neurological or psychiatric diagnosis six months on, according to the largest study so far published on the mental toll that long-COVID takes on survivors.

Authors said the research, printed Wednesday in The Lancet Psychiatry journal, proved that COVID-19 patients were significantly more likely to develop brain conditions than those suffering from other respiratory tract infections.

Studying the health records of more than 230,000 patients who had recovered from COVID-19, they found that 34 percent were diagnosed with a neurological or psychiatric condition within six months.

The most common conditions were anxiety (17 percent of patients) and mood disorders (14 percent).

For 13 percent of patients the disorders were their first diagnosis of a mental health issue.

Incidence of neurological disorders such as brain hemorrhage (0.6 percent), stroke (2.1 percent) and dementia (0.7 percent) was lower overall than for psychiatric disorders but the risk for brain disorders was generally higher in patients who had severe COVID-19.

The authors also examined data from more than 100,000 patients diagnosed with influenza and more than 236,000 diagnosed with any respiratory tract infection.

They found there was overall a 44 percent greater risk of neurological and mental health diagnoses after COVID-19 than after flu, and a 16 percent higher risk than with respiratory tract infections.

I think Facebook should allow the poster of a thread to pick which emoji's can react

For example the number of George Floyd news posts on Facebook don't need the fucking laughing emojis. While they clearly out the white supremacist's cockroaches, they just create division on a news thread.

Guys like Matt Gaetz, Trump, Jordan, Cruz etc. keep reminding me of this AOC video

The GOP is ATTRACTING CROOKS!!!! It's attracting them because they KNOW the base is NUTS and they can con the fuck out of them. The GOP has become nothing but a cesspool for crooks to enrich themselves.
