    Enabling Criminals is a better name for the organization. We want the homeless issue fixed, not further encouraged with low-cost housing paid for by the tax payer.

    At work one year we were forced to participate in a Habitat For Humanity community service project. The entire 3 days we saw no sweat equity from any of the future residents. Just us employed chumps building a nice 5 family attached home.

      No you don’t, you’ve told this lie countless times. If being the recipient of help from these programs is so great, go do it.

      You won’t. But I expect you’ll be here this time next week telling the same lie.

        Geoff, Every week I tell you that you’re a douche. Things never change.

        He/She probably doesn’t qualify because they aren’t a needy brat who cheats the system. You act like there’s never been a person that’s sold an EBT card, or collected a disability check while doing cartwheels- Or that all people who are poor are sad, and you should help them however you can. It’s peoples ability to cheat the system that has turned me into a cynic. I’m not one for saying that helping people under a large umbrella isn’t a bad thing, I just wish I had a choice in who receives my money. I don’t trust government to make proper decisions- they don’t.

        Needy brats expect handouts. That’s why the people who collect your change next to the interstate don’t get jobs. They’re the first in line to collect a free check, and the first in line to buy scratch tickets with it. They can’t get their priorities straight because they don’t know how to live like normal people.

        People that need help are disabled, mentally incapacitated, or elderly. I am all for housing those people. Not ex drug addicts with no will-power- and certainly not the people I see begging for the change in my pocket.

        But hey, they still get my change no matter what. Irony. Douche.

        I know someone who intentionally asked their work not to give them a raise- because they get a kickin’ deal on their apartment in downtown Seattle. So they can only earn a certain amount every month… but the subsidized rent gives them lots of $$$ to spend on other things in their life. Wish I had that luxury and no conscience.

        Wonder how they pay $400 for a $3000 in prime real estate Seattle? In a very nice area?
