    media thinks about the homeless and what should be done.  We have laws and lawmakers doing everything they can to eliminate homelessness by getting rid of the homeless. Putting them on one way bus trips, making laws saying you can't feed them, etc etc and all of them forgetting how many of the homeless are children.

      of the rhetoric of the last 30 years, about welfare queens in cadillacs and those greedy poor people cheating the system.

      We have become a nation of psychopaths.  And the only way it will stop is for those of us who see this to stop being polite about it and stand up and speak the truth:  all of these people talking about cutting aid to the poor and the homeless are doing it because they want them to die.  Or at the very least because they don't care if they die.

      If we want this kind of thing to stop, we need to expose it for what it is: active attempts to kill other people.  Republicans in Congress advocating for food stamp cuts and the like are, morally, no different from serial killers.  There are people's lives we're talking about.

      I'll hold out hope there was something else going on...
