Saw this article on rawstory this morning. Very insightful read on some problems with the already big problem of homeless families in some of the countries biggest cities.

RE: America's Homeless Problem.
Yet every city has at least a half dozen "animal rescue centers" --- and if you go to Walmart - they have over 200 types of pet food -- but nothing for the homeless guy trying to scrounge out of the dumpster.........................


What's wrong with this picture???

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.

RE: America's Homeless Problem.
I can't imagine being homeless with children, especially in winter in the North.
How is it that the US government was able to find housing for
so many Japanese-Americans in the 1940's, but are unable to help house the homeless now?

There won't be any homeless people - as soon as some smartass figures out how to make money off of them......

"At this festive season of the year, Mr Scrooge, ... it is more than usually desirable that we should make some slight provision for the Poor and destitute, who suffer greatly at the present time. Many thousands are in want of common necessaries; hundreds of thousands are in want of common comforts, sir."
"Are there no prisons?"
"Plenty of prisons..."
"And the Union workhouses." demanded Scrooge. "Are they still in operation?"
"Both very busy, sir..."
"Those who are badly off must go there."
"Many can't go there; and many would rather die."
"If they would rather die," said Scrooge, "they had better do it, and decrease the surplus population."

-Charles Dickens

RE: America's Homeless Problem.
Utah (of all places!) figured out that it saves money to provide homes for the homeless. It's almost like there's an actual benefit to acting like a decent human being.

Others have taken a different approach, shall we say:

Hawaii used to have an interesting solution -- a one way ticket to anywhere on the mainland.......
