Pull your head out of your ass, get a joband find a place to live. That solves the problem.

My wonderful president has a plan to help the homeless but it will take more of the overabundance of money from the people in the way taxes. Giving money to those that don't want to work just makes good sense to me. It also makes you feel good knowing that your hard earned money is going to someone else. Merry Xmas.

I'm from south arkansas. My dad is among the homeless in ft. Smith. He's not able to work. Not everyone is that lucky. If i could get him to come home he would have been here a long time ago. For some it's just a way of life. Although I don't quite get it, I don't have to. I don't have to walk in his shoes. Who are we to judge anybody?

It Can't be so bad. Just study the happy people on the knee wall at 6th.
Why shouldn't they be happy! We take care of our homeless in Fort Smith. Free food and shelter at several corners. Tent heaters in case you want to imbibe and get high at night. Free computer access. Free laundry. You get the idea...

It's their life. Not yours. Be thankful for what you have. Call them drug heads alcoholics...etc. if it makes you feel better about yourself. Not all homeless people are like that. Try putting yourself in their shoes. Which undoubtedly more people will become homeless. So you may actually get that chance. Then you can be one of the ones gettin high in your tent and washing your ass in the river. Get stabbed, shot at, in fights. You prolly wouldn't make it a day.

I have a question. Not wanting to get you all pissed off here, just a question.
Since you know how homelessness affects people such as your dad, and you know he is here in the Ft Smith area, and he won't go live with you, do you plan on sending any money to the sack lunch program to help with the cost of said program?
