    The America that many of us think of does not include a desperate, daily struggle to survive. Even with the horrid economy that we are enduring, most Americans are getting by, going to work and then going home. Those who are lucky enough to have a job and a place to live tend to look the other way when it comes to those less fortunate than themselves.

    "You might not want to read this article if you have a weak stomach," starts a blog post at MrConservative. "Most Americans have absolutely no idea what is going on in the dark corners of America and when people find out the truth it can come as quite a shock. Many of you will not believe some of the things Americans are doing just to survive." Then, as promised, MrConservative get to the shocking grist of his post.

    "Some families are living in sewers and drain tunnels, some families are living in tents," MrConservative wrote, "some families are living in their cars, some families will make ketchup soup for dinner tonight and some families are even eating rats.

    We could round up the homeless, especially the mentally ill homeless and keep them housed someplace, but that would be illegal.

    actually we have food stamps for all those who are hungry. In fact, they advertise to find anyone mentally ill enough not to know about or take advantage of the program.

    If there ever was not enough money in the program we could triple its size with no more money by limiting what can be purchased with food stamps to only cheap, nutritious foods.
    This would help solve the moral hazard issue too.

    Also, keep in mind that in America eating too much is far more of a problem than eating too little, and that any problems are mostly caused by not incarcerating the mentally ill.

    San Francisco once decided to help the homeless by using a retired cruise ship for housing. They had to have rules. No drinking, no drugs and anyone who assaulted or raped another resident would be told to leave permanently.

    The homeless didn't want to be told what to do, so the project was scrapped for lack of interest.

    in NYC they gave the homeless a choice of which borough to go to each night for food and shelter. 90% elected not to go anywhere when they could not go to the shelter in Manhattan.

    Why be so afraid to say what the solution is?? What does your fear tell you about your IQ??
    You are a liberal bigot for thinking you're morally superior merely because you care enough to point something out.

    Kickin' the homeless while they're down...
    :eek:
    Advocates: Cities passing rules targeting homeless
    October 8, 2012 — Army veteran Don Matyja was getting by alright on the streets of this city tucked in Southern California suburbia until he got ticketed for smoking in the park. Matyja, who has been homeless since he was evicted nearly two years ago, had trouble paying the fine and getting to court — and now a $25 penalty has ballooned to $600.

    With shelters full, homeless families have nowhere to go
    October 7,`12 - When Janice Coe, a homeless advocate in Loudoun County, learned through her prayer group that a young woman was sleeping in the New Carrollton Metro station with a toddler and a 2-month-old, she sprang into action.
