    If government doesn't take some kind of action to deal with the increasing rate of homelessness some parts of the U.S. will start looking like Calcutta. I believe some concern should be shown for those homeless persons who are down on their luck and are capable of inhabiting temporary accommodations in a peaceful, civilized manner.

    Such accomodations were set up by government during the Depression in the form of tent camps which were monitored for cleanliness and cooperative, lawful conduct. Those individuals who could not live by the rules were evicted. An example of these camps is described in John Steinbeck's, The Grapes of Wrath, and seen in the classic 1940s film adapation.

    We have two choices:

    1. Democrats - rebuild American infrastructure, education, jobs training, low cost business loans.

    2. Republicans - let them die.

    The two choices couldn't be more clear. The next move belongs to the American People. Unless that "voter suppression" wins. Then our only solution will be "let them die".

    Doesn't being charitable with money forcefully extracted from others count?

    There could be a third if we are not careful:

    Option one has existed for an entire generation +.
    Guess what, we still have the homeless.

    I'm ready to try option two.

    Over a hundred Republican congressmen and senators who voted AGAINST the stimulus took hundreds of millions of dollars and created thousands of jobs they took credit for.

    You sit in front of the Internet. Learn how to use "Google". Republicans are counting on the ignorance of the ignorant. And hoping they stay that way.
