Or are "irrational" because of mental illness.

Some of whom are mentally ill because "support veterans after the war" is not part of the "support the troops" package in our society.

Isn't it time you updated your blame to that odd orange faced man with the funny hair?

Oh, trust me, you don't want to live in a shame and social status struggle based society. Besides, there will still be just as many bums then anyhow.

I don't think so!! Time for both parties to put their differences aside and deal with it.

Tom - toe the line - your fellow supporter has already made it clear - no president can do anything about it!

But what did you expect Obama or any President to do about homelessness?

So you think all the liberal failed programs suddenly stopped?


The creation of jobs in a booming economy will provide opportunities not there before. Trump wants to get people out of poverty and contributing to society, not maintaining them in a state of helplessness and homelessness. Food stamp users exploded under Obama's policies.


Additionally efforts to stop addiction and the influx of illegal drugs across our borders. Obama baited illegal aliens and the drug trade across out borders.


Guess if you expect Trump to suddenly end homelessness where 8 years of Obama increased it, you can deem trump a failure and uncaring.


To first find out what creates homelessness, go to CA where liberals produce it.


"Nationwide, there are about 633,782 homeless people with about 130,898 or 20.7 percent in California — the state with the highest homeless population."

This is the crux of it. There are plenty of programs in place to help the homeless, but the homeless people can’t, or won’t, comply with the rules. If the democrats hadn’t decided that mental hospitals violated the rights of the mentally ill, so they closed them down, we wouldn’t have a homeless problem.

First, the NRA, should sponser all of them with a AR-15, a aimpoint, a molle vest with magazines and 210 rounds, a hip holster for a Glock 18, with complementary magazines for 80 rounds.

That way, they could defend themselves on the streets.

And with bulk buying they could really push down the price.

Every NRA member could chip in.
