    Do it far enough away from prying eyes and you'll get away with it.

    Government has this little thing called a "red tag". If you are in violation of building, fire, health, or safety codes they slap one on your property. For each day of violation they access a high dollar amount known as a fine. When the fine gets to a certain amount, they come by and evict you and auction off your property to pay said fine.

    There is an old saying..... "you can't fight city hall."
    There is no such thing as a “Natural Born Dual-Citizen“.

    Out of sight, out of mind.

    Merry Christmas, folks. We won't have them to think about this coming holiday season.

    I'm sure there are lots of people willing to lend a hand, but it is not our responsibility (or the government's) responsibility to "do something" with the homeless.

    If they were capable of living peacefully they wouldn't have drawn attention to themselves . . . seems to me they're just a hazard as they're living, now - I surely could live in the woods without someone finding me out if I so pleased

    This is my issue with most libertarians and small government type on things like this. You just say "this serious problem isn't my responsibility, I'm sure SOMEONE will do something about it", without any consideration to what will actually happen.
    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).

    I don't need to assume... there ARE people doing things. Personally, I think it's a lot of enabling, with some exceptions of people who really do benefit from help.

    You'd be surprised how much stuff gets done everyday without a specific government program or entity.
    It's amazing.

    The interesting thing is how people who are, for whatever reason, living in tents form a community. They do things together, they care about each other. Once their community is gone, then they have lost friends, they are alone again.

    Could it be that they are happy despite the physical hardship of being in a tent city? Maybe a sense of community is more important than the luxury of air conditioning and indoor plumbing.
