I totaly disagree with this. What ever happened to humanity???
When the 2010 olympics came to Vancouver, the city took all the homeless put them on buses and shipped them out of town, also the government bought up
alot of the really low income housing ( cheap hotels) and evicted all the tenants and shipped them out of town aswell.
The only way we can bring humanity back to the world of government is to take the money out of government. There should be a law that states that you
must be poor to be a politician. Why would I say that? Its simple really. People who do not make alot of money tend to be more humble, loving, they
are not greedy like rich people, They know what is right and what is wrong, they have more humanity, and they also know their politics as they are
always the ones getting screwed the most ie OP.
People treat homeless people like they are animals.. WAKE THE # UP LADIES AND GENTS!!!! THEY ARE HUMAN JUST LIKE YOU AND ME.
They have all the same wants and needs as the rest of us, They want to be loved, they want to have shelter and they want to eat.
You know its not like they choose to be homeless either. Each one of them has a story, each one of them got screwed in one way or another and had no
where else to go but the streets. Now I know some people are going to say "Well they drink and do drugs all the time, why should we help them?" Well
what I say to that is this...
WELL DUH!! I dare you to live on the street for 1 month and not have the earge to leave reality or to numb your self because your so damn cold!
The government should set up a system to end homelessness. How? By first putting them into a non religious Rehab program that will help them conqur
any addictions and all so to prepare them for the working world again. Then the government should, apon completion of the rehab, supply these people
with a home. It doesnt have to be big either, they could be small apartments or even develop a small comunity of small ecofriendly houses that only
cost about 5 grand a piece to build and ship. Now after that they set them up with a job, a job that pays at least minimum wage.
Edit: With the rehab process people can be trained to for certain jobs like trades or what ever. If it is done properly it will erradicate homeless
numbers, there will be far less if not 0 panhandlers, people sleeping infront of stores, and a lower crime rate.
With that we could end homelessness. Now your probly saying "well thats fine and dandy, but how will the government pay for all that?"
Its easy, Legalise Marijuana and end the war on drugs. Did you know that something like 80% of the money being spent on that "war" is being spent on
the only drug that is proven to be very good for your health, The only drug that has NEVER killed anyone, the ONLY "drug" you cant overdose on (its
physicaly impossible as you have to consume your entire body weight to od on weed).
Did you know that colorado in its first week of legalised marijuana sales they made over $5,000,000!!!!
If its legalised we can end homelessness, end the war on drugs, We stop dealers from selling drugs to youth and we will stimulate the economy by
creating # loads of jobs that create un-imaginable amount of gross revenue for the government and the people of North America. Just think how fast
that deficite could be paid off with marijuana sales??????? *hint hint*wink wink*
Sorry I rambled and got off topic, but we need more humanity in our world. I believe that North America can be so much better then what it is.
Where did all the humanity go in this world?
