Interesting. On an article just yesterday on the homeless, commentators tried convincing us that there is no correlation between crime and homelessness.

That doesn't mean I don't feel sorry for those homeless due to the choice to do drugs

But if someone is homeless because they have made choices in life that led to being homeless, I don't know that taxpayer money should be taken from those who earn it and given to those whose decision have out them in a bad position.

It's not my fault a drug user who is homeless is homeless. Don't take my money to fix the problems caused by others. They caused the problems. They can fix them.

Yes, what is right is not always easy to hear.
