Well if you give the poor homeless persons jobs that pay a decent wage, houses and an existence like the rest of us they might not be homeless drug-addled crazy bastards nor on your precious streets.

These people do indeed need help, but it's certainly not the kind that anyone is willing to be dishing out any time soon.

When the world is crazy, what do you expect the people to be?



What are you going to give them a decent job doing?

We could do that but republicans keep cutting budgets and don't EVER want to raise taxes on the rich to get something like that.



Hmm for 2 years Obama owned Congress...what happened there...seems there are a lot of rich liberals that want to keep their money too. BTW if you taxed every American 100% that make over 1 million per year it comes to 650 billion... I think many see the term "tax the rich more" as some fix and it isn't and doesn't bring in anywhere close to the money they think it would.

I 100% agree that we need mental health hospitals.....

Not just for the crazy shooters, but mainly to help the homeless who suffer from mental illness.


It's a win win.

Good point. But not everyone thinks this way.

You definitely can't trust them to clean your house, or pool, or many other things. Maybe that poster can pay them to do something since he's so concerned.

I've been homeless if the counts.

Some mental illness are a direct product of homelessness and the drug use that surrounds such.

We send our children off to war to shoot people we don't even know for the bankers all the time.

Then when they come home from war rather a few of the poor sods, sometimes missing limbs, and with PTSD, get to become homeless people with the associated mental health issues ta boot, whats ""rational"" about that?

Could this be another reason Trump brought back the death penalty? I mean lets face it, there are killers in the system being fed, given clothing and a warm bed and a college degree on the tax payer dime who shouldn't be. Being told if they rob, rape and steal they'll be taken care of for life.

If i was handing out jobs then yes i would indeed.

Maybe they could be POTUS, probably overqualified all the same.

Are you going to give them jobs?

Nope, you called it just fine.

Aside from the "decent President" bull crap of course.

There are a lot of people in society who need care. It's not about money.

Thing is i don't mind being crazy, I'm not hurting anyone.

Trump on the other hand certainly cannot claim the same.

Not a fan of trump or the majority of his policies but this I can agree with. So many people have been abandoned because of lack of mental health care, this one is a no brainer.

You could stop being an idiot, see this isn't a subject to joke about and yet here you are.

What would you have them do that pays decent?

And no, I wouldn't go round up the homeless and give them jobs. They would have to come to me and prove they can work hard, FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS, and be dependable. If they met those requirements, I would start them at a job paying $10.00 an hour. After 90 days, I'd raise them up $2 more dollars an hour and then $1 more every year. Just hired a guy who came here from Rwanda, Africa and an 18 year old kid who just started college and has never had a real job before, along with a retired Vietnam vet who can't stand sitting around. I'm all for giving chances.
