The CCC needs to be brought back. Seriously.

There needs to be a way that people who are homeless and hungry can work in order to get food and shelter, and a small check for cigarettes and clothes, or whatever. People can plant trees in our forests, etc, etc, etc, and in the cities people can paint over graffiti, they can do public landscaping, they can pick up trash, they can wash sidewalks, they can replace broken sidewalks, they can fill pot-holes in the streets, they can re-pave the streets, they can clean the parks, they can sweep and mop floors at public buildings including courthouses, etc, etc, etc, there are many things that they can do.

The worst thing in the world is being homeless and hungry, and with the bad economy there are a lot of people who are homeless and hungry, there needs to be places where they can go work in exchange for food and shelter.

Much of what you say is true. Programs that create work and end up with a lasting product are worthwhile. Unfortunately, our area is inhabited by an unemployed population that prefers not to work. They are not qualified for even basic physical work or simple mental tasks largely because of attitude. They consider the money that their neighbors make as "chump change." They would rather exert their effort in criminal behavior that has a more irregular schedule. Simple observation of the species indicates that nobody is starving. Obesity is rampant. Tobacco products abound.

More honest opportunity needs to be created, while the criminal behavior must be curtailed.

People can be forced to earn their welfare checks as well, there is pleanty of work that can be done, and the public will benefit, everyone wins. Just imagine if everyone who is on welfare in Detroit was forced to help beautify Detroit, etc, etc, etc, everyone would benefit.

People who are homeless and hungry are there by the choices they made. It's their punishment. If anything, they should ship these degenerates off to some third world country.

Good points. It seems so easy for authorities or people in charge to enforce. I wish it could be done myself. I tire of supporting willfully lazy people with my tax dollars.

People are not necessarily homeless and hungry because of choices that they made. Over half of the college graduates cannot get a college level job, they studied and worked hard, and they got deep in debt, only to find that they still could not get a good job, and many end up homeless and hungry. Also, many women who were once housewives end up homeless and hungry after a divorce. Another way that people end up poor and homeless and hungry is because of lay-offs and downsizing and out-sourcing, and because of the bad economy, etc, etc, etc. Many people who end up homeless and hungry are also mentally ill. There are many reasons why people can become homeless and hungry.

Certainly there are people who are homeless and hungry because of bad choices, such as drug and alcohol use, etc, but many people are homeless and hungry because of other reasons. And the homeless shelters can be sober living housing, which can send the drug addicts and alcoholics to N/A and A/A, etc, and can do random drug tests as a requirement for housing.

It would be hard for a person to film this bad economy to save for history to show what this bad economy looks like, because it is not like the Great Depression when there were people migrating from all over the USA to California, and there were homeless people all over, and there were long soup lines, etc, and we have all seen "The Grapes of Wrath," whereas with the current bad economy we have a record number of people on foodstamps, and on Section 8 Housing, and on SSI and SSDI, and whom are receiving unemployment checks, etc etc etc, we have a record number of people on government aid, so this bad economy looks totally different than the Great Depression. It would be harder to film this bad economy than it was to film the Great Depression.

Just a thought...

On the issue of re-paving the streets... The best way to re-pave streets is with cobblestones, there are cobblestone streets in Rome which are over two thousand years old.

On the issue of saving and improving our world economy... Here is a link for a thread that I started on the Washington Post Topix page pertaining how to save and improve our world economy.

On the issue of cobblestone streets, we tried that here a lone ago and the roughness of the ride augured for a better product. And maintenance was a constant problem because of our freeze/thaw cycle. If we could surmount those obstacles, we would still awaken each morning to a road that was pixilated by thieves.

Like I said, because of the choices they made...

It's not a shocker that most college graduates are idiots lol they don't research the market before getting that free college money that ain't free. They pick a degree in squat and then wonder why they only get squat after graduation. Computer Science use to be the rave, that is until every one and their grandma got the degree and now they are a dime a dozen and no jobs. It's a dog eat dog world, not everyone is suppose to be uber successful, be thankful you have an $8 an hour job. If you don't have experience, it does not matter how educated you are. I would never hire some clown with only a degree.

Yes, we all know you're successful, brave and perfect hiding behind that keyboard(rolls eyes). The fact remains, you're still a coward who spews BS.

Nice try. I invited you to a personal confrontation which I'm sure you conveniently forgot (not), but you refused to reply. I recall you making a statement about slapping the shit out of me or something to that effect. The invitation is still open, though, I still doubt you'll accept due to your true cowardliness. You're only a badass behind the keyboard.

Now, care to discover the "chicken shit" in person?

Sure you didn't.

Royal Oak. Front of Starbucks. Today at 5:30pm. I'm sure your excuse will be not reading this in time. Therefore, same place, same time any day of the week.
