When reality sinks, you will realize that tent cities are inevitable because these are people who not only lost their homes, but their jobs as well and it happened because the bankers have hyperinflated the economy with debt, that their is not enough money to pay for.
Get a brain you unthinking, uncompassionate, horror!
Most of the homeless people (especially now) are either down on their luck, have mental problems and no one to take care of them, or are hooked on chemicals (yes, drugs).
Were they fools for trying the drug in the first place? Yes! Did they deserve to have their lives ruined for one bad decision? NO!
If everyone simply did what we used to before welfare, everyone would be alright. Back then, everyone took care of each other. If your neighbor's house burned down, you invited him to stay with you.
As someone that was laid off as a result of the financial crisis, I would love to get a job. Why don't YOU tell me where to find one? There aren't enough jobs to go around and there are many employment scams out there.
You just about have to be sleeping with someone to get a job these days!
Wow, that has got to be the most ignorant post i've seen in a long time. If I were as heartless as you, I'd hope everything in your life went to shi+ and you were forced to live the life of the unfortuanate. But I'm not, so I'll just wish you the best and hope you never have to go through what some of these people are going through. You obviously have no idea how good you have it.
And I hope that you end up homeless and without any hope very soon.
I hope someone just like you will come along and "humiliate" you for a change.
Remarkable that people like you still exist on Earth. But thankfully, karma is a biach, and you'll get yours.
Unfortunately, this was Bush's doing, you can't blame Obama for this. You can blame him when he fails to act though, which is the case.
The government can afford to give billions to banks and businesses in the pathetic "hope" that it'll trickle down, but they cant afford to do anything about this?
Sorry, just not buying it.
Humiliating a human being for a quarter?
Your so much better then these homeless people, because your lucky enough to still have a job and a home?
For your sake I hope you never in the same position as one of these homeless people, karma's a #.
I take that back. I hope you become homeless and get to experience first hand the struggle these people go through everyday. Hopefully they will remember you humiliating them and give you a warm welcome. Maybe that is what it will take to open your closed mind and learn compassion.
