In the 1970’s the homeless shelters were born in the Roger Williams projects.
One, George Mitchell, cleaned the buildings. I remember helping my father clean these apartments set aside for the homeless who migrated to RI looking for a better life, unlike today’s homeless people who are mostly addicts, who are like the children of Israel, hoisted in the wilderness (of addiction).
Hoisted in the smoke of deception created by the people of another country, to enslave the people, to give them pleasure that will cause them give up or sell their very soul, for just one more piece of ‘crack’.
Unlike the people who migrated here for a better life, they gave up the ability to move forward in life. Through the system, they gave birth to a new social order of homelessness, by taking over the system, not to pay into it, but take from the very purpose for it, to better their lives.
These addicts did better their lives, the system supports their lives as addiction, by allowing them tax payer money in the form of SSI, welfare and all other programs that were intended for those who truly wanted a better life, however they did get a better life (of addiction), paid for by the Federal and State government.
They buy no food, the church does, they buy no clothes, and various groups donate clothes. If you have all this, you have a better life, even if it is a life of addiction. Their only responsibility is to find the next drug dealer.
So who has a better life, the addict or the homeless person who became homeless because of the economy, inflated rents, greedy realtors or because of a corrupt system?
When will you help the real homeless person? Those who stand on the sidelines, deep in the shadows of these users of drugs, being advertly destroyed in this chemical war from another country.
So tell me America, How will you end homelessness in America?
