    1. Millions of people bought homes they could not afford in the long run - i.e. they bought homes that were too big.

    2. It would be a shame if all these folks went homless, because they are hard working Americans for the most part.

    3. But it would be unfair to give them help for nothing when millions of other people either didn't buy homes or bought smaller more inexpensive homes.

    4. Many other people are homeless already or going homeless

    5. Solution - offer mortgage assistance to individuals who need it - in exchange, they must allow homeless people to live in their home. The number of homeless people you're required to take in will depend on your home's size relative to your family's size. Each room will have two people in it, and any room that isn't a kitchen, bathroom, small utility room, or living room will be considered a bedroom. If you're a family of 4 with a 3 bedroom with a basement and dining room and an office, that's 6 bedrooms = 12 people you can take in two families of 4.

    I had no idea homelessness caused HIV.

    one would have to consider that the majority of homeless are there due to changes in the mental health system in the early 70s or 80s giving the mentally ill the right to exist on the streets. no longer could the state force the mentally ill into places where they would be cared for and take their meds as needed...now they are on the streets...a friend of mine is brillant....beautiful and madder than a hatter...sadly...as long as she is on her meds and not drinking...she is fine...she went off her meds..began drinking...another old friend took her in...they were drinking together...no one knows what happened...other than she killed him...she is now in jail for the rest of her life..where she is medicated and knows what she did...too bad that help wasnt there for her before...too bad she had to kill someone...it was like a county secret...everyone knew it was only a matter of time..till she finally lost it and killed someone...everyone tried to intervene but you couldnt keep her taking her meds...the booze always took over...but she could not be committed...

    Depending on where you are at as much as 80% of the homeless problem is people who ought to be in some sort of mental hospital unfortunate the left decided they should all be closed in favor of group homes never mind that there weren't enough that many of those in those hospitals weren't frankly suited for a group home as they are a considerable danger to themsleves and every one else they come in contact with.
