Gdalescrboz: whidbey: Gdalescrboz: gopher321: Yay slavery!So now we are calling work slavery.If it's an actual job where a paycheck is involved agreed, it isn't. If it's Nazi Calvinist bullshiat as described in TFA, there's little difference.Working to get food/water is nazi Calvinist bullshiat? America was founded by people putting in work from dawn till dusk just to provide food/water for their family. Your logic is what is wrong with America, for some reason people think they are entitled to more than they are for simply existing. I'm sorry, but walking around in the street picking up trash for 15min does not get you a paycheck. Food and water is actually pretty generous
jehovahs witness protection: WWWW...the siwwy wiberal got him's fewings all hurt.
cmb53208: Don't laugh, NYC under Mike Bloomberg does not allow food donations to be given to homeless people because it hasn't been inspected for fat content
BronyMedic: The A.I.S.B.: Yes, the homeless are all poor just because they are lazy! It can't be anything to do with the poor availability of mental care, and they couldn't possibly have disabilities prohibiting them from finding employment!!! And of course, every single business is just chomping at the bit to hire people with no houses, places to bathe, or proper clothing, that are likely clinically insane and uneducated! It's not like we're in an economic recession with scarce jobs or anything!\you people disgust me.You do realize that the city of Seattle has entire programs dedicated to helping the homeless through offering them jobs, tuition and financial aid support, and housing placement, right?God forbid we offer people who are "homeless" jobs to help them rise above their current socioeconomic state. I mean, they MIGHT have to pick up trash or something. That's not American work for entitled white folks! That's foreign taco-jockey work or something. Or other indignant right wing furious commentary you would like to make.God forbid someone have to do manual labor instead of set behind a computer all day and debate on FARK. Inhumane, I tells you!/it's a disgusting attitude to label ALL homeless people as non-compliant mentally ill (on average only 1/4 - 1/2 of the homeless population are), and then act offended that someone MIGHT offer them the opportunity to work in exchange for benefits to allow them to rise above their current plight. Drug rehab programs and free/reduced cost mental health programs would go a LONG way to solving the homeless problem, but it's not the only quick fix.//The solution is neither forced manual labor, nor handouts. Stop pretending like one spectrum or the other will be the solution.
whidbey: jehovahs witness protection: You can't reason with these people.Tired of posting near the top of a thread and then running out before everyone flames you? What gives?
gopher321: Yay slavery!
SpdrJay: I think shaming homeless people and using them for slave labor is much nicer than killing them for sport, but both are probably really bad ideas.
