I find too much crap going on today with our homeless people and how they are treated. Regardless of who you want to blame politically for people being homeless, the fact remains that we have the homeless and they are growing in numbers and nobody cares.
In my town and other small towns around me property owners are burning buildings that might house homeless people and claim the homeless are doing this accidentally to keep warm or to make drugs. The timing of these events falls in line with immediate new constructions. One such town in Cuba, Missouri has evicted low income homeless from an old motel to do "renovations " along Historic 66. People call this progress and think they are also solving the homeless problem. Since they have to go somewhere or die, it does not solve the problem.
Larry Rice is a minister that seems to be concerned with the homeless in two cities in Missouri and St Louis is one of them. I've heard it said that Larry Rice has another agenda. Reality of events does not show this in any way. His ministry is helping and feeding the homeless.
I've posted this in politics to show my take on the homeless problem. It is all about greed. That's right. GREED. Any time the banks get greedy enough to say you can take out a second mortgage on your home or property it seems plain that something is going to fall through here. We might have bailed out the banks but greed is the culprit here when it comes to the homeless and an increase in their numbers. It is equally plain that nobody wants to solve this situation.
