Homelessness will never be resolved until we get government OUT of the mental
health problem.They have failed miserably since the Mental Health Act of
1963 promised so much and made a muddle of the entire structure.Along came
the judges who only made it worse.We need clean and safe institutions and
the laws to put people in them.
@say no to bo I take it you are not old enough o remember when reagan took
this same position and turned thousands of mentally ill patients out onto the
streets, these are many of the same people that became chronically homeless
precisely because of reagan belief that the government should wash their hands
of the problem and let the private sector deal with it.
Liberals in congress forced Reagan to liberate the mentally ill - and transfer
billions of dollars to homeless "adocates." Liberal policies, liberal
I'm glad this problem will likely be permanently solved 3 years from now.
I also heard that mental illness, obesity, smoking, crime, global warming, and
war would also likely end by 2015.
