So better they live inflammable cardboard boxes that dissolve in the rain.

A perfect example of the GUBMIT using it's power to eliminate any private competition for the delivery of needed services.

It reminds me of the good Samaritan housewives who fed the poor and hungry from their home kitchens. Many were closed by the city because they were not "licensed." Which is a euphemism for NOT PAYING FEES AND TAXES.

All under the guise of public safety.LOL

Pretty much sums it up Franc.

The video 14 minutes long is well worth the time

thanks for posting Mr Wonder

Thanks for the video.
I'm a fan of the Salvation Army and church volunteers in our community. The micro houses are an attempt to help and get involved one on one. Governmental programs seem inefficient and counter productive even with good intentions. Here's another emergency shelter that someone came up with that is cheap and sturdy.

It seems lately that needs tend to be answered by creating government dependency instead of long term solutions.

Yes, it does seem like quite a few politicians like to steer people to the government instead of self dependency. Although there are people out there that refuse to help themselves.

It is the obligation of our government to provide a fecund environment for an equal opportunity for everyone to seek "happiness." The word Happiness in 1789 meant prosperity. If some do not wish to seek it,,,;Why do we owe them anything?

Correct. I worked along side what I call the entrepreneurial homeless ( working homeless) decades ago, had a few beers with them on paydays. They worked long enough to save 1-2 K, then stopped working until the money ran out.
