Family can save you and pull you up again.
I never see Latino people homeless and begging. I’ve seen maybe one homeless Asian man ever.
US ignoring mental health problems
I wonder what facilities were used to imprison 1,000 people?
Usually those on the streets have burned through all of their family and friends.
The US does not ignore mental health problems, it monetizes them.
successful economy" that includes only those that can invest with greatest skill and resources.
Usually this service is rewarded in measure of how great the service is to society at large. That is how a free market economy works. You do something for me. I do something for you. Lots of stuff gets done, made, and provided. With all that stuff, we have prosperity! Don’t contribute... don’t expect to participate in the rewards.
DIE! DIE! DIE! BANKSTER FUCKING CUNTS, FUCKING DIE!
remember banksters who were stealing left and right and then got bailed out by taxpayers, and are continuing their plunder now. They are the ones who deserve to be under bridges more than anyone
Older people are shipped off to die at retirement houses
The street can be a trap where the bottom keeps getting pulled out from under you. And they keep ripping you off over and over.
Tough love is the only love they deserve. I wish society was tough enough to give it.
Maybe someday representatives will once again start thinking about us from time to time instead of laughing about us feckless fools who in total are not even worth their time to discuss.
It started long before Reagan as we had legions of the homeless in streets of the large cities by the mid 1970's. It was JFK's last piece of legislation, The Community Mental Health Act, signed on 10/31/63 that began releasing patients from state run mental hospitals and the takeover of mental health by the federal government--not strictly part of The Great Society, but embodying the idea of the time that the federal government could solve every problem of human existence. There were supposed to be group homes for these people where they would be supervised, but they never materialized. Additional laws in the 70's made it impossible to commit mentally ill people without their consent, so they wound up living on the streets. That's why law enforcement are usually the first people in authority to encounter these people and do something about them. Today nearly 10% of jail inmates are mentally ill while 50-60 years ago it was something like 1%.krc saysOne Flew Over the Cuckoo's NestPropagandized the idea put forth by its author Ken Kesey that mentally ill people are no different from normal people, they just have a different way of viewing their own reality and shouldn't be condemned or institutionalized for it. If that's the case, then I'd suggest letting the mentally ill homeless have their way and live they way they please since it seems to work for them. Who's to say our way of living in a comfortable home and sleeping in a nice bed at night is any better?
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
The truth hear goes way deeper than banksters as capitalism rewards power, and controls representation and indirectly the exercise of force, you become capital.Your choices are planned ahead for you, and assured to lie at the bottom of the barrel. Down where all the gravy has been meticulously removed by the lower scoundrels.
Perhaps very local control of most finances would do it, with minimal intrusion of Federal government.
Hmmm.... I wonder which historical document best spells this out.
what can be done to stop this?
The rehab programs are especially lucrative due to also subsidizing infinitely the OxyContin fraud. Noam Chomsky might say that as a structural whole, the US medical industrial complex pays lavish attention to maximizing mental health problems by promoting addiction and diverting resources into ineffective treatments that prolong it.
Otherwise, it's a round robin rinse and repeat cycle without any real effect
