    What's a female sheep doing in York, anyway?
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    The VA estimates there are 131,000 veterans at any given moment who are homeless. Food for thought all you who wrap yourselves in the flag.

    National Coalition for Homeless Veterans

    Veterans make up 1 in 4 homeless

    More of our moral teachings from conservatives; mock and laugh at the homeless.

    Gee well thanks for speaking for us Veterans. When did you serve again that you would think you could use us for your politcal bantering?

    He's not. He actually made a really good point. What I have seen so far in the thread are posters who think the homeless are lazy and don't want to work. While that is the case with some, there's usually a lot more to the story. Many times, homeless suffer from addiction and mental issues.

    I think a lot of the homeless are indeed lazy, crazy, or choose to be out there. The fact that some are veterans, this poster used as fodder for hyper-partisanism..... I know its left wing hyper-partisanism, so its ok....


    I mean really, why is this poster not upset that the liberal mayor is instead of helping the homeless, "veterans", seding them back to where they will surel leave again for the most part.

    When we lived in DC, my wife used to work with homeless vets at the big vet center in DC. Some of them were irritable old cusses, but most of them were great guys. The ones she was working with had already gotten over some of whatever issues had kept them from having a home. There were others worse off, but other folks were working with them.
    I may be wrong.

    I'm glad to hear they got the help that they needed, and managed to get some back on track.

    So where would you file the homeless vets under?

    1) Lazy
    2) Crazy
    3) Choose to be out there

    Depends on the particular person. I find your notion that we veterans are all the same rather disturbing.
