RanDomino: Furthermore, for middle-class liberals, the existence of homeless people is the manifestation of a flaw in their supposedly perfect system which serves them so well. They want to have capitalism (because they owe their prosperity to it) while also getting to feel like it works for everyone, which is impossible. They reconcile the contradiction by either recognizing that capitalism is irrational and inhuman and become radicals, or lash out against the threat to either their sense of being a good person or their privilege by attempting to destroy the things that remind them that they can't have it both ways.


Is it strange that i read this in this guy's voice:

BarkingUnicorn: Hector Remarkable: I see no problem as long as there is a process in place, once the homeless are arrested and rounded up into a central holding area, a process which can efficiently export the meat and other nutrients and resources which harvesting these undesirables will yield.

Without disturbing the ecosystem, of course.


remember.... CARBON NEUTRAL... that's the mantra

KrispyKritter: this is the down side of not having the benefits of religion in your life. many people learn of charity, kindness, benevolence and the importance of doing good acts in a house of worship. the increase of godless heathens in positions of power (political office, law enforcement) is giving rise to absolute evil being in control. feed a homeless person in the right park in FLA? that's an arrestin'. you're a homeless fellow in the right town in CA with no where to go? that's an arrestin'.

people that cannot handle what little power their position gives them need to quickly be removed from that job. meanwhile you haters keep on pissing on the bible and enjoy as America turns into a land of soulless suffering for those not blessed as you.


You sound like you need a cigarette.

What's so taboo about living in your car? Why is it illegal almost everywhere to sleep in it overnight?

It's not directed at the homeless people themselves. It's directed at working people, to attach as much terror as possible to the idea of poverty, to keep them working harder for less money under worse conditions. Homeless people are made an example of, as a warning.

Furthermore, for middle-class liberals, the existence of homeless people is the manifestation of a flaw in their supposedly perfect system which serves them so well. They want to have capitalism (because they owe their prosperity to it) while also getting to feel like it works for everyone, which is impossible.

How very christian of them.

>arresting you if you're homeless and don't have a permit

Because criminializing the homeless is going to make the problem go away. Right.

Lionel Mandrake: AverageAmericanGuy: Wish we hadn't gone to war in Iraq a few years ago. We'd have a lot more money to tackle these social issues.

Why do you hate our troops?


Because they're mostly dumbfarks who couldn't make it in the private sector and signed up to be professional welfare cases, but that's not the issue right now.
