A Permit to be Homeless?

Let's see.

First the government and the big bankers and businesses put people out of work and foreclose on their homes, making them homeless.

Without an address the homeless often cannot find employment.

Without employment, after their time for staying in a homeless shelter is used up, they have no place to stay and no money for food.

So what is really being done when permits are required for the homeless?

They are being told that they have no right to live.

How many people are only a paycheck or two away from this?

This is restrictive in relation to freedom of mobility. Its a game of don't let them see you sleeping. Prohibiting sleeping in cars and all that without a permit i oppose. Because the heck with permits. I say deal with potential criminals in a less restrictive way.

Mr. Mcgranor,

It is good to hear from you again. I saw your other comment, too. Thanks for sharing.

It is shameful that this is treated as a "game" that leaves the poor as losers. Moreover, one has to wonder how many of the so-called criminals are being created from the dire necessity that is being artificially imposed upon them. When people are pressed to desperation, they often act desperately.

What really troubles me about this permit thing is that the Sheriff seems to imagine that he is doing a good thing, without taking into account how this mindset is overtaking the nation. The poor and abused are counted as a burden and even as garbage to be driven away.

Sadly, reality is such that caring for these poor people can become overwhelming and imposition of limits does become a necessity.

It is grievous to observe that many people are struggling terribly because of what the government and banking cartels are wickedly doing.

Yet we pray for them, as our Lord urges and commands. This is the way of love, the way that we very much desire for them to come to know.
