Caring for human beings seems like the best use of my time, homeless or not.

Anyone else sick of this?

The cost of war hits homeless people hard. First, more homeless people are veterans than the general population. Second, we don't really pay the full cost of caring for the walking wounded. And we could sure stand to transfer a few billion out of the war budget and into life-sustaining activities. The social consequences of this current action will be with us for decades. Do you feel safer? Didn't think so.

You want to end homelessness? Knock off the fighting. I'm just saying.
