Homeless numbers up

I've seen more homeless in the last few years than at any time in my life.
I happen to know one guy who is a ex-Marine with medical problems, can't find a job, and is homeless. He literally doesn't have a anywhere to go but to live outside in the elements.
And social services isn't even able to help him find emergency housing.
He only has less than $20 to his name, a $20 Shoprite certificate, and virtually no personal property.
This is completely unacceptable behavior in our society on so many different levels it's shameful.

He should head to Florida were its warmer

His young kids live here with his ex, and he wants to be close to them no matter what happens.
I'm at a loss to tell him what to do, but the point I was trying to get across is that where is the necessary help for these types of people whether it be church or government?
I haven't heard from him recently, but hope he has found help from one of those groups somehow.

Try hoping on a plane with no money then....or better yet, hop-off while in mid-flight.

Get a job?
You're a genius! He never thought of that.
Are you hiring?
No I didn't think so.
I don't step in front of buses, that's reserved for smart-asses like yourself.
Misdirected anger isn't going to help you become more civilized.
You don't even live around here trollman.

Is that the best you can do?

OK, my friend got a job at Target.
He makes a whopping $52 working 15 hours a week.
Settle for increasingly sh*tty jobs at increasingly lower pay?
Should I feel sorry for the rich who now make 350 times what labor makes, instead of the 20 times they made over labor in 1970?
Not a chance in hell.
There needs to be a radical paradigm shift in how the system works...
or you'll be next on the chopping block despite any precious ideology you have!
