    That is very true.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Of course many are probably not responsible enough to do that.
    There's a process to buying land - and there are regulations you must abide by to live on it - and land is expensive.

    How about: put them into a shelter which has the funding and means to help them begin a new life?

    There are two different kinds of homeless populations. There is the short-term homeless population, which generally speaking is temporarily between housing, sometimes because of circumstances beyond their control. This is a large number, but their circumstances are generally temporary. These are families, teenagers, runaways, etc. There are large numbers of children who have been evicted from their homes by their parents, or who are fleeing abuse.

    Then, there is the smaller, but more visible longterm homeless population, which frequently includes those who have opted out of living in the mainstream for a variety of reasons...they're addicted to drugs/alcohol, and don't want to get clean...they are mentally ill, and don't want to be in treatment (or don't have the means to be in treatment). Our homeless population in the U.S. exploded when the Community Mental Health Act passed in 1963, releasing a lot of longterm mental health patients into the community to receive treatment at community-based (versus residential) centers. A lot of the longterm mentally ill did not follow up on that treatment, and this continues to be a factor. This deinstitutionalization of mental health facilities continued through the 1980s, causing another rise in homelessness.

    A lot of those that you see living on the streets, longterm, would have been institutionalized in another generation. They have no interest (or ability, in many cases) to come back to the mainstream.

    I don't view "homeless" the way others do.

    I frequent forums where people purposefully make themselves "homeless" to practice abo skills.
    They do this for upwards of a year.
    You can live quite well being "homeless" in some situations.

    Squatters are fine with me, on public land, as long as they keep it clean.

    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    One would think that with all their wealth and affinity for providing services to illegals, that the good people of California would fund a viable option to eliminate their homeless problems. Free housing, food, health care, schooling for all. Lead the way!

    I had never heard of ABO before this post. I think it's an interesting concept, but people shouldn't and probably aren't doing this in urban areas, and if they are on state or federal lands, I think they should be required to get a permit.

    Well, your really not supposed to do it anywhere.
    At least for more than a week, which is usually state/fed law.
    It's aboriginal living skills.

    You trot off to the woods with a limit set of tools (if any at all) and make the best camp you can, with all the products that nature provides.
    These guys, usually, have to pick remote locations(away from leo) or a friends unsettled property.

    Why do you constantly feel the need to bash a state when you have no concept of what's actually happening here?

    It should say something like, "Tent city residents to become homeless."
    I mean they have a home right now.

    Best thing for them to do is buy a cheap piece of property, maybe an acre and share that.
    I think you will find that a violation of most city, county, and State building codes.... Not to mention health and safety codes.
    There is no such thing as a “Natural Born Dual-Citizen“.
