I'd try and find a giant crop field that was by a creek or river and stay within striking distance of it.

Hello MP:

I was a hippie.. I was NEVER homeless, but I did a lot of camping.... I even built a camper and lived in it. It was even considered a cool lifestyle.

But, that was then, and this is now.. Living in a camper is no longer cool. But, even in those days, when I was BROKE, I got a job. I was never proud. I washed dishes.. I ran a jackhammer.. I did whatever I needed to do so I could eat. Eating was important. Having self respect was important, too.. I was NEVER a burden on people or the state..

I'm NOT being self righteous here. I don't think working to eat IS self righteous.

You must really hate socialism and illegal immigration then.

Hello Spuds:

Well, as you can imagine, it was a different time.. Nobody minded Mexicans crossing the border... Then, as now, they came here to work. We loved having our crops picked, our dishes washed, and our leaves blown.. Johnny Carson used to joke every night on national TV about his illegal nanny...

Those days, when Mexicans got to the US border, they didn't see a DO NOT CROSS sign.. They saw a HELP WANTED sign.

It was during one of those iterant jobs I had when I met Tio, and his family, and became quite close to them. No. I didn't hate them. Tio, is still undocumented.. He's lived here peacefully for over 50 years. He has a deep and extended family here who're all US citizens. Should Tio be deported? Nahh.

Socialism??? Well, I'm a capitalist, but socialistic programs like Medicare are good, not bad.

The constant lie from the Left is that people are not responsible for their quality of life.

Read the title to this debate...... it is saying that the homeless are forced into this condition. We listen to the Liberal media constantly blaming someone for the troubles people live with.

It's either the Rich man's fault, or the White man's fault, or the Company's fault, but never the fault of the person who chose to get some woman pregnant, or take drugs, or abuse alcohol, or wasting their money and never saving for a rainy day, etc. etc.

It is a complete lie from the Left and total denial of personal responsibility and accountability for one's choices in life.

I'm not talking about the disabled or someone with catastrophic health problems so spare me.

Exactly, If you are homeless, most of the time it was due to your own personal actions.

And even if you were homeless due to some unavoidable tragedy, you wouldn't need to stay homeless for any extended period of time if you actually do a bit of hard work.

That’s a pretty vague answer. If you were forced into homelessness, you would do a bit of hard work.

Head for the hills plenty or places where one can live of the land although the isolation may be ok for a while but then get a bit too much .

I’d much prefer to take my chances in the city , as an artist I could still make money through caricature work with tourists or worst case scenario resort to a spot of thieving
