Who Among You Would Take A Homeless Veteran Into Your Home, or Let Them Sleep In Your Garage?
Twice a year, the hypocrites will honor the veteran on Memorial Day and Veterans Day. That's it! All the veteran get's is 48 hours of praise and thanksgiving. It looks like this guy could use a helping hand. Translation: If all of you arm chair warriors and patriots truly honor the veterans, then take the money you would normally spend on sporting events, viagra, and lap dancers, and use it to help a homeless veteran, so that they might find their way back to the world.? You can start today.
If they could pass a back ground check with no sex or violent against women and children crimes they would be welcome in my home if I had space they could or would use. I totally agree. Wouldn't it be amazing if people just gave up one thing a year and donated that money to a vet (or any other needy cause). Words are great, but money does something!!
Why not point the finger at the government for making so many veterans in the first place? And then, after the soldiers are of no more use to them, politicians will dutifully cover them with praise, call them heroes and shed tears for their sacrifice-- as long as it doesn't cost anything. You know, I hear a lot about how we the people really don't know what our boys and girls are going through and that's true enough; the military and government have completely clamped down on any real news coverage of our latest wars. What was it Bush said when we went into Iraq? Something like, people should keep going to the malls and shop. They wouldn't, after all, want news footage of death and destruction and reality to disturb the families at dinner time and get people to think, like during the war in Vietnam. They want sheep.
Veterans have fought bravely before so that we could enjoy the freedom that we bask right now. So, if i would see a homeless veteran i would definitely welcome him in our home. There's nothing wrong in extending a helping hand to those who are in need. Seeing this picture crushes my heart and knowing that the government didn't do something to provide their veterans a decent place to live in. They are old and look at this poor man, unable to walk anymore. I think that this is the time we should return the favor of saving and helping them. Yes, i agree with you that donating money would be a great help for them. Hopefully, soon there will be no more homeless veterans, they don't deserve to be in the streets and begging alms.
I believe you. OK, when you see me standing on the corner with a sign that reads: "The Hungry Biscuit" be sure to stop and pick me up! But seriously, the majority isn't going to get on a bandwagon and start helping veterans.They just don't care.
Alright, will definitely do.
It's the ugly truth. Some people just really don't care, but still there are some who are compassionate enough to help people like them. Well, we can't just force them to do so, they have their own will.
I don't have any room in my house, and my garage is open to the elements, so I wouldn't be much help. Well, the garage does have a roof, so if they're alright with just a roof, then there'd be no reason to say no.
This is a darn fine question. I hope it gets many people thinking about the issue. I have and I probably will again. The simple act of providing for them is a very small part of the deal. It takes a great deal of energy just to help one face everyday tasks. The homeless part is almost always the result of a complicated set of facts foisted on a person incapable for whatever reason of dealing with them. Just getting that monthly check into the bank and then paying a rent with it is sometimes just too much to handle. A space is a great start.

Should veterans lose government assistance after committing certain crimes?I understand respecting those who fight for our country, but should a veteran rapist really get free health care?

The time between when the Soldier leaves the service with one disability rating from 0% to 100% from the service to receive the VA rating from 0% to 100% takes a year or longer. In the mean time depending on the rating the Soldier losses up to a third or more of their pay. That means they are in...
