Not one penny will EVER touch a homeless veteran's fingers so they can find & use for housing; it'll all go to Poverty Pimps to throw homeless veterans into PRISON-LIKE 12-Step religious cult insane asylum shelters.

Homeless Veterans need IMMEDIATE REAL HOUSING with keys to locking doors & PRIVACY!

Most of the "homeless veterans" would prefer to be employed at a living wage rather that subsisting on the Charity of the government. However, the reality is that veterans represent only a small proportion of the electorate. The great majority of the electorate (approximately 95% of the US Population) are not veterans. The largest proportion of the American electorate consists of women who, themselves, are feminists. Politicians, therefore, through legislation pass and promulgate laws which give them preference in employment and education over veterans. The high unemployment and homelessness rate of veterans can be explained by the aforementioned. Other democratic nations have treated their veterans, through history, in the same disgraceful manner and for the same disgraceful reasons sometimes resulting in catastrophic and cataclysmic political changes (Bolshevik Revolution, Julius Caesar's war on the Roman Senate, and the Second English Civil War)
