We All Make Our Choices

Someone asked me, “how did you get out of the worst relationship of your life?” After explaining that I made a choice to potentially be homeless to get free, I also realized that it was my choices that created the position that I was in, in the first place.

We must always acknowledge our God given intellect and free will when looking back on our lives. Jojo is a mother of three. Her choice of life style currently has her homeless. New Beginnings is months away from opening the first house, otherwise I would have offered her a room.

I met Jojo on the bus the day she was released after 30 days in jail. Once again her choices had direct consequences. She blamed the man she was with at the time, but it has her choice to be with him. My choices wound up putting me out on the street if it was not the Steiners taking me in.

I was the one who brought in a roommate who never paid any rent or got on the lease. I was the one who called Darlene in the first place because I am so afraid of living alone. I didn’t consider that we never got along in the first place.

It is choices like these that have people end up being homeless. Everything we do has it’s consequences.


The Homeless Family

Sometimes I get so into what I do that I forget why we do it. I can tell you all kinds of stories and get your mind going but if I don’t ground the mission once and a while and set away from our amazing life and get back into the trrnches all our work is for not. 
The other day I saw a father and his autistic daughter standing in the rain on the off ramp. The both held a sign that said simply help us. My heart weept for them and I even turn arpun to offer the father a job. But they were gone ny the time I got back to them.

Ever since then, I have been keeping an eye out for the pair but no luck. The Homeless population of Dublin doesn’t seem to be nearly as high as in Portland. But it could just be that the Ierish hide things better.

These stories are meant to entertain and a few of the my do that but in an hour Glenn and ihs friend are going to pick me up to investigate the darker side of the Emerald Isle. I am not looking forward to that.

I had a time when Kansa and I first got married that it seemed like we would never get on our feet. However, it did not take me long to realized that it was the limitations on our income by the wellfare state that was keeping us from getting out of the trap. I don’t beleive in hand outs and I was recently told that 90% of the people in the USA who receive Wellfare work.

I have to call Bull Shit on that one because it only took 30 minnutes to put together the video that you see below. If the 90% figure wasn’t Bullshit I would have had to work harder to find useable footage.

I believe that it is the right as a human being to work to support your family. If I find the man and his daughter, I would have given him a job and a place to stay. That is not a hand out. He would be earn his keep.

If you don’t want to work, Don’t Eat My FOOD!


For years I thought that I could help the homeless population in my area by trying to raise funds and distribute food and blankets to them. What I learned was I was only enabling a problem.

Every homeless person that I came accross had full benefits from the government and plenty of oprotunity to get off of the streets. But they veiw people that work much like the government-subsidized prostitutes do, that are featured in the YouTube like above.

The free education is aleeady in place that Left is always talking about increasing. Housing, Medical and Food benefits are also in place. But people are homeless for other reasons that the Left wing don’t like to admit too.

Housing has rules that most of the homeless population are not willing to follow unless it gets too cold and they are forced to do so. An addiction that is left untreated can get you kicked out of the program, for example.

You are required to bath regularly, which is thuoght of as an invasion of individual personal liberties. But the biggest inventive to stay out on the street is how most states distribute the benefits.

A homeless person can get the full amount of cash benefits for their classification, if they are living on the streets. The cash is intented to give them the oprotunity to get an appartment, so the amount varies from state-to-state according to the cost of living. 

If the Homeless person goes into a shelter the shelter has a right to potition the state for the cost of the individual’s up keep. That could mean that the cash balance on the card is depleted by the shelter, under the pretents of feeding clothing and offering a safe place for that month.

Unfortunately many shelters are not held accountable for this obligation after they get paid by the tax payer to take care of the individual. Because of the broken nature if the Homeless person, the shelter can easily kick the person out say that person left on his or her own freewill and has not been back, opening up a new oprotunity to scam more money from a new person. The shelter then pockets the money that was meant for the upkeep of the one individual that will not see any benefit from the taxpayer’s money for the month.

After realizing what had happened to his benefits, Mike, a Veit Nam vet decided to never go back to a shelter. Psychologically damaged, Mike has many challenges that keeps him from wanting to be around people. He is missing an arm making it clear that he is legitimately disabled, but after the Sherehouse took his money and kicked him out, he fell out to grid.

Now Mike a recipent of the purple heart award, and former Marine, is relying on his military training to servive. He is hunting rats and other small game and gathering as our anvestors did. He has even begun to teach others to do the same. He warns everyone to stay way from the shelters. The sad favt is the most emplyers will not look at an application with a po box for an address. You can get back on your feet without a job so this from of welfare fraud is hurting everyone. Something needs to be done.
