    Every time anything is posted about Failures in democrat cities, especially HOMELESS americans, the left avoid the thread like the plague. They cant make $#@! up, they cant lie their way through it, they cant blame trump or conservatives, so they hide from it.

    Homeless boy breaks down in tears after receiving his first bed

    An 8-year-old from Michigan, who has spent most of his life in and out of homeless shelters with his mom, was just given his first bed thanks to a charitable organization. Daeyrs had recently moved into state housing, but was left sleeping on a pile of blankets since his family couldn't afford to furnish the place.

    It isn't just an American problem. I donated $50 the other day...well technically 36 GBP's to a group that hands out breakfast bags to the homeless in London in addition to their normal feeding stuff. I guess it is the least I could do since that country gave us Shakespeare

    No we most certainly do NOT. I just posted something from my city. We do a LOT to help here. Quit trying this partisan crap.

    We do a lot to help the homeless here as I just showed you. We also have a great program called Streetwise.

    https://www.streetwise.org

    Just when I think we've found common ground, you go and f*** it up.

    What you miss is the fact that a lot of homeless come to the cities to look for help, especially youth. Where are they supposed to find it? The suburbs? We know that would never be tolerated.

    I have certainly never avoided a homeless thread you started if I saw it.

    I guess I should have known that your concern is not really for homeless people. Its just another way for you to $#@! on liberals, who once again, foot the bill for the people you throw out. I'm part of this group:

    http://www.centeronhalsted.org/resou...ing/index.html

    We can only do so much. Oh well. So much for that common ground. I'm far from hiding. What are you doing?

    allow me to so precocious, @Common feels (like me) resources should go to homeless Americans, before the illegal aliens.

    Oh for god's sake. I just posted you links to programs to help the homeless in my own city, but yet we get accused of not doing anything. Clearly, we are. Now, you have to change the subject to illegals?

    Wow. No good deed goes unpunished. No matter what we do, you'll $#@! on us, congrats. We're clearly spending money on Americans.

    Just returning the favor, with a bit less emotion.

    If you want to deny that resources that could help homeless Americans, are diverted to illegals, just say so. Go on record.

    Show me where that is happening. Go for it. While you're at it, show me where funds that could be diverted to help homeless Americans are diverted to pointless wars and policing the world.

    Go on record. It goes both ways.

    I'd rather help immigrants that contribute to our economy than police the world.

    I'm on record. But I would prefer a path to citizenship that is reasonable, especially for DREAMers.

    BTW:

    Pretty sure Trump has ended that though. I mean, that's what you wanted. Now what were you saying?

    Oh for gods sakes you cant bull$#@! me, the homeless problem has GROWN not diminished its worse now than in the 70s. Its disgusting that you have sanctuary cities for illegal aliens and the city is loaded with American homeless.
