We all have to struggle to make ends meet, so it's understandable if in our desperation we come up with some weird economic ideas now and then. But leave it to the liberals to go completely overboard:
Dailykos says the banks should give away entire gated communities to bums
Do I need to point out how absurd their plan is? Even Mitt Romney doesn't have that many houses
, at least last time I checked.
Aren't they supposed to be eco-hippies? Foreclosed homes are perfect habitat for racoons and other wildlife, but suddenly the liberals don't care about that anymore. If they really cared about the earth, they'd demand that the banks get a tax break for it.
And if you gave the homeless a house, would they even live there? Ever since my dog died last year I've have a big empty doghouse on my property, visible from the street, but I haven't seen a single vagrant showing up to ask what the rent is. I mean, the fleas even died last winter, and it even has running water, being next to a stream. I've had no enquiries - none. How are you supposed to help people who, bless their souls, are too lazy and stupid to help themselves?
Also, I'm not racist, but aren't most foreclosed homes in Real American areas? And aren't most homeless people a few shades darker than Real Americans?
If Dailykos actually cared about the homeless, they would use tough love like I do. When I was young I used to give food soaked with ex-lax to bums, just to watch them running around, trying to find a place that will let them use their washroom, until the tough love is dripping down their legs. It's tough love like that which has made Freehold a homeless-free zone. Most of the joined the military, I think, since it was right after 9-11, when the patriot act was signed, that the last of them just plain vanished.
