Not sure why you assume everyone has a friend they can crash with. I'm glad you do if it were ever needed. You also need to remember that many people have a hard time asking for help.

And your friend bringing up things that happened back in high school was him trying to remember the good times. Most likely a coping mechanism for his depression.

We all go through tough times, and you shouldn't assume someone's situation. Not everyone has 1000 friends like you.

These are people. Just like you. People would do well to remember that the measure of a society is in how it treats the most vulnerable.


Is there anything in particular thst you are doing, to help the homeless and vulnerable?


Probably paying taxes, its not his/her fault the US spend so much on defence. Imagine how many homeless shelters you could have instead of the $2.4trillion spent on going to war with Saddam for NO REASON.

for sure these homeless people are fools.
lets say im homeless tonite.

i have about 1000 friends i can crash at.
lets say i have zero cash.

i find a friend, can i crash for a week till i get a gig anywhere, heck even target.

then after 2-3 weeks, i have money to pay my friend, and i can start looking for a place.

one of my friends, an alcoholic, got a concussion, after getting into a fight. he spiraled into a midlife crisis, and he is damn lucky he has a good friend. he did not work, did not leave the house, just cried and watched tv for a few months. i went there to confront him, and the alcoholic got belligerent with me.

lets pretend, his friend was not as patient as he was. and my friend, belligerent with anger and concussed, curses that guy out. wham, my friend is out on the streets.

and my friend was completely psycho during this mid life crisis. i went there, he was not making sense. started bringing up high school events, which happened years ago.

whenever a homeless dork talks to me in nyc, i always tell them, 'why dont you crash at a friends house.'
and they always have an excuse, OR they get irked at me.

but these people getting super upset with me, for suggesting how to better themselves?

one guy, rolls up on me, and says, 'i can do a rap for you, how much you got...'

i said i do not cash. my go to excuse, 'man im sorry, i gotta pay rent im so late...'

then the guy who was willing to make up a rap for me says, 'some guys buy me a 40 instead...'



Do you think most of the homeless people have more than, or less than 1000 friends with homes who will take them in for awhile?

The area under I-794 is nowhere near where the convention will be held. It's well SE, near the harbor and largely industrial.

Not near the convention but can be seen when going to : Harley, Casino, Hotels, 3rd Ward.

This is just for optics and a warning to other homeless next summer.

Maybe a death penalty for pushing meth would help.






Deciminlisation works far better. Have they not done that with meths already. Its given out to kids with ADD. Are you suggesting a death penalty for big pharma.

A system that creates so many homeless people is evidently and inherently broken.


System reboot needed.

Its similar to that where i live, housing is unaffordable


In some of the bad parts of Milwaukee houses are very, VERY cheap.
It is not an affordability issue here.We are talking you can buy an entire house for 8k - yes the entire house.
The problem is that those houses are in pretty bad neighborhoods.

I seriously don't even know if I would call this problem homelessness.
That is what we are calling it, but it really should be called a drug crisis. The homelessness is a secondary issue because of the drug abuse.

The majority of the homeless are further east.

As regards their poverty, plenty of benefits to be had, but a lot of them don't want to make the basic effort to meet the minimum requirements.

That is interesting, 8k for a house but in a bad neighborhood so no one wants to live there. There's something very wrong with that picture.

www.zillow.com...

Just imagine this place back in the day, now $2700. That is the price for the whole house. That is not rent.

And, lets face it, many of the people in that unfortunate situation have burned bridges. Their old friends/family have been burned, or burned out from the chaos.

They are doing the same here with the homeless camps. I do sympathise with people down on their luck through no fault of their own. A bit less so for the career drug addicts..mostly I sympathise with the home owners/renters that have to figure out how to keep their property, cars, family safe, amongst it all.

Meth fries peoples brains. They constantly talk to people who aren't there. They sometimes get very violent, and they steal.

I hear San Francisco is now offering homeless 50 bucks and a ticket on a bus to my town so they leave SF! We don't want more tweakers here.

Update to this story

On the morning news they just said that the DOT (department of transportation)
Advised tent people they can go to other areas.... Ummmm so it's ok for them to be homess elsewhere but just not under this highway. OK.

They are getting a lot of flack from people so they even said the homeless are creating a unsafe water situation from living there.

I've heard Seattle is also giving homeless people a bus ticket out of town, under the pretense of reuniting them with family.

NIMBYism at its finest. Cheaper & easier to make them someone else's problem than to actually try to deal with the issues that made them homeless in the first place.

I'm sure Calcutta was a nice enough city once.
