I wasn't trying to be mean. I really couldn't think of anyone that would rather live there. Other than homeless people here, since everyone gets food, clothing and shelter.
Would you trade civil liberties for food, clothing and shelter?
What civil liberties do homeless have in the US? enlighten me?
If I was a homeless in the US I would commit a crime just so I can go to jail to be fed and sheltered.
Is that a cultural thing? See me,I would get some work
in order to eat and pay for a hostel.

Nope, it's not a cultural thing. You see people are like animals when someone is weak they step on them just like animals will kill the weakest link by tormenting them. Most homeless people are not mentally up there so you know how they will be treated even if they try to get a job, there was always a reason why they are homeless to begin with, that's the vicious circle.
Of course in real life if it was me in the street then yeah by all means I will fight to get myself back in business but my prior answer is a metaphor of what goes on not necessarily what I would do…

RE: Human rights the China way

"Would you blame them if your organizations are incompetent? I would go for as many meals too, the problem is not with the homeless, it's with your culture, society and priorities."

I don't agree with this either. I believe they are mostly in need of mental health. I live in the 4th largest city in the US and work downtown. I also live in town, not in a suburb. I have seen with one or two exceptions, the same homeless people for the last five years. I have worked at shelters that provide food and showers, clothes, and a place to stay. I am associated with a group that has a program to help homeless people get identification, etc. Trying to help them get help. So I don't think it is the culture that keeps them at it. Unless, you consider that they do well enough from the hand outs for wiping the windows and cardboard signs about being a vet, or being sick, being evicted or just being honest and wanting a beer that they do not want any more help. I know this is a generalization and every, every situation is different. In general, if I believed that a mentally ill person. Who slowly slipped out of regular society and on to the street? How would they be helped? Would they be helped?
