    This isn't a commitment to just homelessness, it is child and family homelessness and our Vets. Children can not protect themselves from this type of situation.
    Failures at life shouldn't be reproducing, social darwinism in action. Here's a thought, maybe the state should stop outlawing apprenticeship at full time jobs so our countries children can actually learn a trade rather than continuing to waste tax payer dollars on the failed education system which spends billions to teach nothing.

    American children should not be sleeping in the streets

    Then children should be afforded the right to run away and not have to worry about the state returning them back to their failures of parents or sticking them into a state institution until they are 18.

    and clearly private agencies are not enough.
    How do we know that? Maybe people would give even more than they do if they weren't being robbed by the state. The U.S. already gives the most of any country in charitable donations and that's with the giant racketeering scheme employed by the state. But maybe you think that spending 2/3 of a dollar to collect a dollar is an efficient means of aiding the poor.


    And our US Vets, they actually could be helped through mental health services. We're not taking care of them the way they need to be taken care of. Our military is constantly expanding. We have over 700 military bases all over the world. Not to mention the billions we give away in aid to people who would really rather see us dead than look at us. But we can't even take care of our vets when they come home?? Maybe its time to cut back on some of our conquests and take care of our people who need it.
    The military should be dissolved and replaced with Private Defense Agencies.

    But this is not just a mental issue or substance abuse issue either, family homelessness jumped 7% in 2008-2009. And overall it went up 30% from 2007-2009. (from the article)
    Thanks to the Federal Reserve and state intervention into the home loans and mortgage industry.

    This is not an effective response to my asking you to show how living in the USA makes it my responsibility to provide other people the means to exercise their rights.
    Try again, and try to bring some subtance in your response.

    The only "real" solution that would end Homelessness would be the Final One, i.e. Kill Them All. Need I say I do not favor that?

    Refrain from telling me how to post.

    Why do you wish for people to starve and be homeless?

    Well, how about the failed War on Drugs? You’d think the Prohibition would have taught the state a lesson but, I am sure the state actually enjoys being doomed to repeat history. It is well known that this program is a failure but, the state will keep spending more and more money and creating more and more bureaucracy and stuff more and more people into prison and take away more and more of our freedom. Prohibition creates a violent black market of criminal gangs that endanger the people and bring more corruption into the state (police, politicians, etc). The black market also brings more dangerous product. It also creates a prison state; oh I could type a paper but, I am tired.

    If you wont respond in a manner that actually addresses the isue put to you, then, through your contined, deliberate avoidance of said issue, all I can do is accept your concession of the point.

    What that you dismiss everything I say? That proves nothing but you are a heartless fool that does not want to solve this problem.

    And that is when it is done!

    I have just had a horrible thought that I know how he can accomplish that.
    In much the same way that the Russians did after the revolution had succeeded, they nationalized all buildings, all land throughout Russia, then housed the population on a family basis in rooms of houses of the wealthy so in effect with a large house with say 10 bedrooms, they allotted a family for each bedroom.
    After which they built what are now called 'Stalin Apartments' where everyone was allotted at least a bed.
    Naturally they excluded the houses of those like Pelosi, Biden, Gore, etc etc as these and other important folk are essential to running the new happier and contented America.
