Well, there's your problem.
You're assuming being homeless automatically means a person is "too lazy to even try working". Big, bad, incorrect
As I stated in the "Labels" thread by chissler in this forum, I was once homeless and it had nothing to do with laziness or unwillingness to work.
If you think all homeless people are there because they're lazy, perhaps you should read more about it.
At least visit chissler's thread.
To address bluesquareapple's point of rehabilitation, the people are going to have 10 years to figure that out. I think that's enough time to get a
job and work through their issues.

You don't mean to? You mean that just slipped out?
The cheapest food is high in carbohydrates. Carbohydrates make you fat. The diet of poor people many times is carb-laden and therefore eating 2 or 3
meals a day of cheap carbs results in overweight poor people. But you can be sure their diet doesn't contain lean protein and lots of fruits and
vegetables as most of us are lucky enough to afford.
To both of you - You cannot group homeless people and judge them any more than you can any other group.
