I make no distinction between addicts and mental illness. I'd say the stat is 99% mentally ill and 1% that fell on hard times that they could not dig out of.

You live in a state that refuses to accept reality. The homeless MOVE there along with the drug addicts and scumbags. Your politicians created this problem.


I saw the same deal happen on LI NY in the 90's and GTFO of that place. All my friends thought I was nuts. Now almost all say the wished they had left as well.

similar dynamic in ABQ, the mayor let's them camp out, against the law and common sense, even installs portapotties and wash stations.

well hell Buford, let's go there, they don't roust you at 6am, they have a place to take a dump and clean up, sometimes they bring you food....what a deal!

for the record, i was homeless. there are a percentage who dont want to be and just want opportunity. there is a percentage who dont use or abuse drugs, they just live a simple life. the rest are substance abusing. at any rate, i worked my butt off to get off the streets, eventually now owning a few businesses and employing people.

if you think your plan is solid you are a dumbass.

You - 1%
Mentally ill/addicts/alcoholics - 99%

I came pretty close myself and I can certainly understand how easily it can happen. Since I'm not an addict/alcoholic, and not "confirmed" as mentally ill, I would also be in the 1% group.

You are 100% correct. And don't sound much like a liberal now. I stand corrected.

The cost of health care centers to care for the homeless would be exponentially more expensive to tax payers than the Arizona sheriff- Joe Arpaio tent cities environment that would be more appropriate for those who could benefit from a structured-supervised living situation.

We have some miscreant living under a bridge in our small town in Oakland, FL.....the "bleeding hearts" think its cute and often hand him water or money or whatever, then pat themselves on the back for helping such an unfortunate person. He is young, apparently able-bodied and rides a bike back and forth from his little lean-to shelter under the bridge.

Apparently the idiots that think there is some local panache in having a real live homeless person in the town haven't lived in Pittsburgh and Washingon DC where one person turns into 2 then 5 then when word gets out about the "hot spot" and you have a crime, drug and disease problem plunked into your quaint little enclave.

I've noticed that most 'homeless' are able-bodied people in their 20's and early 30's with all of their hair and none of their work ethic. Many drive cars or ride bikes to their 'begging zone', where well- meaning but mis-guided liberals give them hand-outs, which encourages them to keep doing what they're doing: getting high and begging.

there are a bunch of bums downtown. one in particular "owns" a median spot near Lowes and Starbucks. every time i go that way, there he is, standing near a "don't give to beggars" sign, just holding up a sign that says "Veteran". he's neatly dressed, well groomed, fit enough to stand there all day every day.

get

a

job.

Then they roll up into a residential neighborhood late at night with their headlights off so as not to attract attention, put up a sunshade in their windshield so nobody can see inside the car, and sleep there until the residents start to stir the next morning. If they can swing it, they will climb the fence into the clubhouse/pool area to use the restroom and showers.

The homeless i have a problem with are the Veterans. The V.A has many avenues to help them with housing food medicine counseling etc etc. I worked for the homeless veterans for years. I see men holding signs saying homeless Vet and you asked them what their MOS was and they reply, Huh?
