Stop calling them "the homeless." They are criminal vagrants. And this has nothing to do with not having compassion for the people who for one reason or another find themselves without shelter and have decided that they are going to live on the streets of our fair cities across the fruited plain. That's not what this is about. It's not about making them feel bad or shaming them or not being compassionate. In fact, it's quite the opposite. I have great compassion for people who are so desperate that they have to live on the streets, but let's just be clear: our policies right now in this country and in major cities run entirely by Democrats only enable this their behavior. It actually makes their plight worse. If you actually care about these individuals, then you'll want to do something. And instead, what we do is look the other way and we enable them and we encourage them to continue in their destructive behaviors.
