The Homeless and Too Many Libs. What to do?

Homeless on the street (photo by Pineapple XVI)I got a marvelous suggestion from James in Hayward, who’s been thinking about the homeless problem:

The Homeless and Too Many Libs. What to do?

Every liberal household with a family income of $150,000 annually must adopt one homeless person into their household. Adopt means food, clothing, shelter and misc. expenses as well as walking around money.They must adopt another if the household income is $300,000.

Once all the homeless are cared for the remainder of liberal families must adopt, into their families, at least one welfare recipient. The higher the income level the more welfare people they must adopt. Limousine liberals in government must adopt several welfare recipients.

In short, they must put their money and psyches into the mix instead of just their mouths.

In one year there will be no homeless and very few liberals.

It sounds like an excellent suggestion to me.

Of course, both James and I are speaking tongue in cheek. We know that homelessness is a problem, but neither of us believes that the Progressive solution — leaving the homeless free to wander the streets — is the answer. It’s bad for the communities destroyed by increasing numbers of homeless, and it’s inhumane as to the homeless themselves.

The Left’s approach to homelessness is yet another reminder that, as Dennis Prager says, we delude ourselves if we think that conservatives and Leftists differ only as to means, not as to goals. For Leftists, visible signs of poverty and (alleged) societal cruelty are an important goal, even if they’ll never say so.
