Please site your source if you are going to make a claim like this. As for taking in homeless people, I do, frequently.

Other than asking for support for your hilarious data and stating again that I hope nothing knocks you off your perfect, special pedestal into reality I just want to say I feel so sorry for anyone you decide to “help”.

You are funny to me, someone so out of touch with how things can knock a person down. Cant afford housing? Move! Hahahaha because moving is FREE! ESPECIALLY WITH ALL THAT GOVERNMENT CHEESE THEYRE JUST THROWING AT PEOPLE!

No. It takes one bad event (job loss, illness) to knock a person down. But thanks to caring individuals like yourself, things are rigged so that once you’re down, it is damned near impossible to get back up. I don’t see how denying people basic needs does anything but drag the whole country down.

A lot of homeless people are mentally ill, you’re right. And a lot of them have comorbid addictions. Not 99.9% by a long shot. But since when did someone CHOOSE to live with brains that aren’t balanced?

That’s ridiculous. No one, given a choice, says “me! Make MEEE bipolar! Or schizophrenic! Oh, boy! “

You don’t choose mental illness the same way you choose to be an asshole.

I’m not in any way trying to change your tiny mind, and I know your stats are pulled straight out of your ass (and why not just make it an even 100%, while you are at it? I mean, who are the other 0.1%?).

No need to continue a discourse I know is fruitless. Have a great life out there being better than everyone else.

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
