Nintenfreak: My manager at the Wal-mart I work at who shall remain nameless, Regina, yelled at the homeless Vietnamese woman who spends most of her day on the grassy lot adjacent our store. The woman had come in to, and successfully purchased, a blanket. She was being yelled at because the previous day she was banned from the store. I asked around to find out why."Because some customers called the police on her because she scared them."I'm livid now. Don't give them money, sure, but don't treat them like garbage.

Hobodeluxe: 34 "Then the King will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.'37 "Then the righteous will answer him, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?'40 "The King will reply, 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.'41 "Then he will say to those on his left, 'Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.'44 "They also will answer, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?'45 "He will reply, 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.'46 "Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life."
randomjsa: It's not as simple as some of you like to make it.Do you want to pay for a public park only to have it over run with homeless people? There are a lot of alcoholics, drug users, and mentally unstable people among the homeless, to say nothing of sanitation and other issues. The same thing goes for a public library. The point is that when you create a system of free meals, it doesn't just invite the people who are down on their luck and need to scrape by for awhile... It invites people who are perpetually homeless for lots of no so good reasons.The other side of this is that they're not going away and if they're not in this spot they will be in another. What's the proper solution? Is the homeless shelter/soup kitchen really the best we can do? How can we solve the other problems associated with it if it is without shutting it down?
Just Another OC Homeless Guy: First, the mayor is, in fact, a supreme asshole....2) it's near the beach and free showers coontil State of CA started "saving money" -cough saying fark you to taxpayers cough - by shutting them off)Just Another OC Homeless Guy:There are many schizophrenics who live on the street. This is, as the ACLU put it, to protect their freedoms. I'm sorry, libtard asshat tunnel-vision lawyers, but many mentally ill people THINK THEIR MEDICATIONS ARE POISON and refuse to take them. They can't, in other words, HANDLE freedom and are caught in a Catch-22.Just Another OC Homeless Guy:I've found that it is the Orange County conservatives who are generally of greater help than the liberals. The latter just mouth platitudes and want us to go away from their pristine little neighborhoods.Just Another OC Homeless Guy:Stereotype much?Just Another OC Homeless Guy:Your obvious political asshattery is not helpful.Just Another OC Homeless Guy:I can see why no one would want them around, but since there's nowhere to put them (thanks, zombie Reagan! ACLU) they're just kind of..
skullkrusher: Issue with the policy in question is that homeless addicts are given homes for being addicts. Homeless non addicts are presumably left out in the cold, NPI.
the_vegetarian_cannibal: This is bad news... for Just Another Homeless OC Guy
whatsupchuck: The conservative mantra has long been to eliminate taxpayer funded assistance to the needy, because "private charities can handle it more efficiently." Eric Bever jumps the gun on part two of the plan, which is to outlaw the private charities. In a conservative utopia, all of the homeless will apparently be chased out into the desert to die as municipalities compete to be the most unhospitable to people in need. Nice, huh?
