FEMA is turning the homeless into hamburger meat for mcdonalds.


At least they won't have to worry about food shortages

I believe in freedom. If someone wants to kill themselves it is hard to say whether I would use my freedom to stop them.

@the Bakers act: Invoking the “Baker Act” — a law that enables authorities to institutionalize patients who present a danger to themselves or others.

What if they endangered others unintentionally due to limited mentally capacity?

I don't think you even need to postulate that far.

Anyone who is willing to stay on the street, abandoned building, under a bridge or whatnot during a hurricane, are a danger to themselves and bakers covers that.

We have the freedom to not be 'dead body haulers'... so their angst towards the deceased for having to lug them around is misplaced IMO.

There is not a competition between the two, they are equal.

Medical personnel had the freedom to be medical personnel.

A man should be able to make decisions such as these, life and death included.

I agree but when I have to pay or physically clean up your dead body, well in that case I am going to exercise my free will and stop your dead body from being a future problem.

Many think that way. This only shifts the 'problem' from you to the one that you are now going to have to force your will upon. Not all will submit to the will of another man either.

Without law, 'power' rules the land. We will find ourselves back in a primitive landscape.

Conspiracy! FEMA is turning the homeless into hamburger meat for mcdonalds.

Im kidding...

They should say thank you.


There is a rumor going around that the shelters are in fact killing homeless people. Nonsense I say.

But just you watch. After this storm someone is going to say that they see less homeless. Where did all the homeless go? The government killed the ones they baker acted that's where. --Mark my words.

The issue of clean up of a body is the problem of the occupant of said body.

So just let them die?

Who are going to inform their families?
Who are going to clean up the mess?

If everything thought like you, nothing would ever get done because "freedom".

Yes.
The same families that let their member live on the streets?
Those who are employed to will clean up the mess.

No, things would still get done. Not only that, after only the first hurricane there would be no more 'homeless cleanups'.

So the families should have forced them not to? What happened to you saying they had freedom to do things?


Those who are employed to will clean up the mess.

So tax money should go to clean up dead people instead of trying to save them?


No, things would still get done. Not only that, after only one hurricane there would be no more 'homeless cleanups'.

So let them die to save money and resources?

No wonder the worlds screwed up if people think like you.

You are beginning to argue in circles. Do you have anything left in the tank?

Yeah, you only have to clean them up once rather than paying for many mistakes.

They are OFFERED shelter, if they deny it let them deny it. Stop denying freedom.

You're the one arguing in circles.

First the homeless should have a choice. Now families shouldn't let them be homeless.

But screw people, right?

I must admit to being curious as to what will become of all the new homeless throughout the country.

Texas, FLorida, etc....

I wonder what new things they will have to follow.

Cause there are going to be new homeless after all this.

And the baker act is often abused to have people committed, much like how the cops can slap disorderly conduct on anyone, just to put them in jail.

Be careful what "firsts" are set, cause you know they will be applied to other in situations.

So you've got nothing to reply with about your contradictions?

You really can't have it both ways. If the homeless should have freedom of choice to live or die, the families can't be held responsible fo their choices or take away their choice to live on the streets.

Not all homeless are "retarded".


I didn't say they were. Gah.

But the act isn't about being homeless. It's about being a danger to yourself or others.
