There used to be a homeless veteran I knew who was always selling newspapers, day after day, even in the rain. We'd always buy a couple from him, enough for him to buy his own little cellphone. Eventually, he learned he had cancer, and would go to the VA for treatment every so often, even while living under the bridge.
He was gone for a couple of weeks before returning, he'd gotten robbed and stabbed, losing what little he had. He tried selling for another month, before I never saw him again.

it's always been some sort of weird underground trend for evil people to beat up homeless people for no apparent reason, they just get kicked around, other times they get fatal wounds and sometimes they actually get murdered.

It's more common than you think and it's mostly teens that do these things.

There is a homeless man who lives downtown in the city I live in. Last year, a few of my friends and I decided to do something nice for him. We saved up for three months (college students, so saving is slow-going) then took him to get a haircut, some new clothes, a winter jacket, and a nice warm meal. He told us his life story over dinner: he's not an alcoholic or drug addict, he's just a veteran who hit some rough streaks. He still has all his war medals (2 distinguished service awards among others) and refuses to let go of them. At the end of dinner, he thanked us, and I have never seen someone so genuinely happy for a meal or even just warm clothes.

There is a difference here. This guy actually did something. He served or worked whatever you want to call it. So its like receiving his social security at retirement. Although social security has outlived its worth, there should be something in place for the soldiers. Blame the government for not giving a **** about people. PS. Both parties don't give a **** about you, they just like money.

Most people who are homeless have: served or worked, or had some sort of massive financial crisis( and didnt get bailed out like the banks) or they are former teen homeless, from getting kicked out of their houses for being gay/lesbian/bi ( 40% homeless youth are LGBT) or they suffer metal issues that grew out of the systems in place for children with metal health or their parents died/cant take care of them anymore.

The amount of people who are homeless because of drugs/ "being lazy are very nil". However many homeless start using drugs out of despair/desire to escape. big differences there.

There's a story behind every homeless person.

But its a lot easier to justify not giving a **** if you think of them as lazy leeches on society.

PS> If there was a crack down on tax shelters/tax fraud/offshore holding companies that would bring in enough captial to pay for that outlived social security ("Although social security has outlived its worth,")

We do have socialized health care for veterans, as well as benefit and compensation checks each week. Virtually everyone is in favor of veterans benefits, we have a whole department of the government for it. It's just not always enough...you're expected to find a job after a few years and if there's no where for people to go or make money to support yourself, then you have to go to a homeless shelter.

I only ask that you don't hate on the American people (not all of them at least). I hate my government right now, probably more than Europeans do because it actually affects me directly. But I love my country and what we used to stand for. inb4 "you voted for them youre just as much to blame."
