Tough

Some people become offended reading my posts. Well, all I can say is, I’m not here to tell you what you want to hear. Lives are at stake in the world of homelessness. Hiding from the ugly truth of it won’t do any homeless person any good.

  1. @Michelle, I don't hear anyone telling the average guy to scale things back. Our economy is still dependent on people spending money when when have it to spend. If you don't have anything to spend, then of course you have to accustom yourself to spending less, but that's a different thing. Considering all the work that our president does, he not only deserves to have days off, he needs time off from time to time so to be ready to face the huge problems he is facing on behalf of the country. You know, Fox News isn't really “news” it's propaganda for Republicans and corporations.

  2. @Fred, and to pay for $16 muffins. Ridiculous and embarrassing if you ask me. I don't see how our government is not ashamed to spend that kind of money, meanwhile our own President and his wife are taking multiple vacations at millions of dollars each (gotta pay for that security!) and telling the everyday Joe that he needs to scale back and not take any vacations because that is the responsible thing to do when the economy is so bad. Nice.

    Hello Kevin. Greetings from the road. “Tough” is right! America (and probably a few other countries as well) need a wake up call. I drive truck and see more then most out here on the road. I usually help folks out by giving rides, or offering a meal or shower to hitchhikers (many of them homeless) and have lived on the streets myself.

    I'm also a firm believer in the FACT that no one (not one single person) needs to be homeless or hungry in America.

    At truckstops, fast food joints and many restaurants I've seen them throw food away by the ton. I see abandoned houses all over the country that could be used as shelters for people with just a minimal amount of work.

    I know for a fact, that with a little education and hands on training many of the homeless could make quick use of labor skills that could rebuild most of this country.

    Unfortunately, we are now run by a socialist and communist government that only wants the American people to bow down to them and pay their ridiculous taxes that are spent on mostly on political parties (the get drunk kind) and sending our young men and women off to die.

    The biggest problem I see is that so many Americans continue to cater to this kind of gov't and letting them get away with it.

    Oh… And Kevin, great blog by the way. Keep the post comin!!!

    That's for sure. People are afraid of homelessness. And you're right about taking the plunge doesn't do anything but give people something to say they've done. They need to go to a “homeless camp” and live homelessly for a few weeks – in the winter – to even get an inkling of what it's about. Even then, they know there's an end in sight. And they probably have health and dental insurance.
