    It's a real world example of liberalism at work. Look good, feel good, do nothing useful.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Dear god, does everything that happens on the planet have to have a secret partisian motivation?? Do any of you ever think that some bad stuff happens because of greed or fraud or lack of expertise that doesn't have anything to do with liberal/conservative agenda? Are y'all really that excited about destroying this entire nation with your personal partisian bull****?

    This crap is why I personally wish a pox on both their houses when it comes to the liberal/democratic versus conservative/republican idiocy. Nobody gives a damn about this country... it's all about partisianship, and proving they're right no matter what the cost to the citizens of this nation. Arrogant, egotistical, smug, self-righteous biligerant know-it-alls, on both sides. We are a nation of adolescent narcissists wrapped in the flag of our personal political ideology.

    Democrats/liberals versus conservatives/republicans... I dispise you both. Arrogant hypocrites all.

    Yes, thank you emdash. I agree with the conservatives that homes bought with money the inhabitant earned are usually built of higher quality, but goddamn.

    I applaud the people who donated their money for this cause. It's very nice that some people who have made a lot of money give more away (on top of their taxes) to help people in need.

    The election campaign season is over. This forum became so absolutely unbearable with nonsensical, pointless bull**** that I had to go into hibernation for a while. Can we please avoid talking about crap from now on?

    Why do you insist that this is a worthy cause? I see little evidence.

    When I've wanted to help the poor find housing, I take them into my house and then try to help them find work so that they can get a house or apartment of their own.

    One of the many advantages of this approach is its educational value. One quickly learns that there are reasons why we have so many poor in this country. Laziness, poor character, drug and alcohol abuse, and mental disorders feature prominently.

    Don't hold it in like this, you must learn to express your feelings!

    Hey! Who are you calling "adolescent"?!

    I have worked very hard indeed to be an embittered, curmudgeonous old man, and had achieved a fair level of success by age 20.

    (Also I'm far too scarred to be narcissistic.)

    This is nothing more than taking cheap shots at well intentioned people. The fault is mostly on the backs of those living there. They were given housing, and are too lazy or stupid to maintain their homes.

    In the news recently, a home makeover was done and the family promptly sold it, or took out a loan against it and left town, I forget which.

    Back in the 70's and 80's I had neighbors who lived in FHA 235 homes, built and subsidized under a program that allowed the poor to have modest homes.
    The program was abused by middle class folk who could afford to pay their own way. The interest was paid by the govt program, but some of the people deducted the interest on their taxes. My next door neighbor told me that he was advised to do that by the govt emloyee that helped him get into the program.
