    Not all homeless are junkies or gypsies.

    Tar everyone with the same brush in order to pass a prohibitive law that impeaches on citizens freedoms?

    But then again, perhaps you like living in an Orwellian state.

    Freedom is right we are all given and we have in this country, freedoms is a word that is banded about when my wallet is expected to come out.

    Now "Orwellian state", Marx described a state under Marxism as his ideal so people could ascribe to a Marxist state, that was his point, Orwell was novelist and wrote books, some of them about lower middle class life, some of them about the future and some of them about politics. To use the term "Orwellian state" shows a low level understating of the writer.

    Ostensibly it's a health and safety issue - they don't want those poor homeless people getting poisoned by those albeit well meaning folks who don't have the requisite training and certificates.

    The reality is perhaps that they don't want their cities blighted by those same poor homeless people.

    Pretty sure the Bible has a fair bit to say on the subject.

    God bless America.

    What depression? We are just flatlining. States are doing slightly better.

    However the States has always had an underclass. Almost nothing exists like it here. In a country to a million millionaires too.

    They need to create more jobs. But then don't we all.

    The only thing unconstitutional in the states is not owning a gun.

    Shocking. It would never happen here; oh no - you'd never get soup runs banned in Westminster.
