    Lets be honest about the discussion, the people who lose their homes have ample time to find another place to live, if they go homeless its due to their own ignorance.
    Nobody simply loses their homes. They lose their jobs. Then they lose their homes.

    Not necessarily.

    If they agreed to a mortgage which they could not actually afford with their current job, they could potentially lose their home without losing their job.

    Unless you consider "home" to mean "a place to live", in which case you are correct.

    Well yeah...that's what I meant. I've never heard of anybody just 'losing' the place they live from one day to the next. Something has to be the catalyst for you to lose your home. Losing your job, health bills mount up or some sort of tragedy is far more likely IMO then simply becoming a drunk, drug addict or social deviant. These last 3 I think would be more likely to happen as a result of becoming homeless.

    For many of the homeless Ive dealt with, becoming homeless was the result of being a drunk, drug addict, or social deviant and burning all their bridges with everyone in their family who couldn't take their **** anymore.

    Just listening to a homeless person's story isn't enough, you have to keep asking them the questions they don't want to answer to find out the truth... And I have nothing better to do on the ride to the homeless shelter im taking them to.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.
