    First off, the term is spigot. Secondly, aren't the states responsible for paying for their own services? If the feds don't have the money, they can't/shouldn't spend it. Your position here seems in conflict with most of your other positions.

    At least it gives us the ongoing opportunity to recognize and embrace our innate superiority.

    I dont understand why they dont create work camps for the chronically homeless and give them something to do that grants a sense of purpose, financial stability to pay for the camp, and removal from the streets and, consequently, the opportunity for crime.

    Because they wouldn't voluntarily, or willingly, participate.

    $500 unless you're homeless. I found that figure on the EDAR site.

    I think word of mouth to local churches and community organizations might be a good way to get the word out there.

    The canvas looks to be of high quality and it would be great for park-n-camp type recreation.

    The homeless should be put in the military where they will receive food and shelter and can serve a useful purpose. Or send them to Mumbai where no one will notice!
