    No, I was referring to the "Will work for food" signs that many homeless people hold up. Not too long ago they did an episode of 20/20 or dateline or one of those shows where a guy walked up to people with said signs, offered them a a job for a meal, and had no takers. It was in reference to your "work camps" idea before I read the part about them being involuntary.

    What do you think, and I quote what you just quoted, "consequently, the opportunity for crime" means? Also, did you not read the other 4 or 5 posts that referenced the same issue?
    I can Jallman, and yelling won't convince me otherwise. We don't arrest people for the opportunity of committing a crime. From what you said: lower crime would be a result of these arrests. You made no mention of whether or not all homeless people were criminals. You did not say only criminal, homeless people should be enrolled. You said that all chronically homeless, criminal or not, should be enrolled in the program, and their opportunity for crime would decrease. You probably misspoke, but that's what your post meant.

    Obviously reading doesn't either.

    let me make sure i understand your post, given your far right wing stance
    you are advocating the government spend MORE tax dollars on mental health problems in our country

    Oh, sure, right after we perfect cold fusion, start colonies on Mars, and end partisan politics.

    It is a worthwhile goal, of course, but in ten years? No way. If it were just a matter of building houses, it could be done, but it is a lot more complex than that.

    I'm not sure you read the whole article. It's much more than stable housing..

    The plan is a significant breakthrough because there's never been a comprehensive federal effort to end homelessness with a timeline and measureable goals,
    That's right. A timeline. And measurable goals. Do you not see these as siginficant breakthroughs in stamping out homelessness?
