    You are the one saying other people should help these homeless people out, so I ask you if you have done that.

    Don't expect anybody else to do something you are not willing to do.

    By giving them homes? No. I couldnt even buy a home myself. Ive worked charity. But I however believe we need universal housing to answer the question.

    I already answered this question.
    No you didn't answer the question. If banks are regulated to a different degree (I'm not sure what you believe is "good" bank regulation), how would that open the door for homeless people anywhere to all of a sudden have a place to live.

    Let me ask it another way. It says you live in the Midwest. Let's say they regulate the banks the way you want them to. How specifically will that result in the homeless in your state? Be specific please.

    I sometimes wonder how many of these guys who goes on these rants about the poor and homeless actually participate in feeding the homeless and doing volunteer work down at the shelters? It is a humbling experience when you see families down there struggling and hungry.

    It is a significant contributor to homelessness amongst teens. They tend to go to the cities where gays are safest.

    We are talking about an increase in homelessness and considering that acceptance of gays has increased across the board there should be less teens getting kicked out for being gay, not more. I don't see how the increase could have anything to do with kids getting kicked out for being gay.

    You appear to always think government is the answer. Frankly, it's unimaginative and shortsighted.

    Exactly, that is why I asked him. He started the thread but he has no answer for how many homeless people he has helped.

    OPM is king.
