I would not want to be homeless. But, I have met people that prefer to live off the land, so to say. They want all the free they can get and don't even give a thought to working. They figure at some point they will have the ability to get SSI.
Let's face it, there are some out there that prefer to be homeless ... all the time thinking they are living because they are surviving.
