Homeless insurance would look and feel like unemployment insurance - it would have a storefront government office it would insure the added benefit of granting vouchers to house homeless families / protect children from starvation / assign social workers / allot information to individuals about the many programs that exist by state and by country [ HOMELESS INSURANCE would strengthen the net necessary to catch people from falling off the grid / answer questions regarding mental health issues / substance abuse / shelter the suddenly homeless and lost who are going down with this ever deepening recession. [ this is not a welfare issue - this is an emergency program ]
Our government insures just about all aspects of our society - however the current aspects our government addresses are subject to federal tax participation - are we not all paying some federal tax everyday ? So why is our government allowed to shield the corporate 2 begging to fail prayer from corporate America and willing to ignore those among us who are simply 2 lost 2 find their way home again???
And further... the idea is not to begin another government program as much as it is to coordinate the programs already activated. My argument is the timely availability to the people who need the programs [ a storefront in every city would create a few jobs - in this storefront any one needing assistance would have the resources afforded them via a social workers or someone acting on a social workers behalf who has access to everything afforded their situation. Of the 1,000 of programs active now to alleviate homelessness - few are understood from a POV [ point of view ] of the person who needs the help and who find themselves dependent on the "kindness of strangers" [ Homeless Insurance is a tag line - catch phrase to simplify location and function ] This country should have put in place a system understood by all to correct as quickly as possible the personal financial tragedy now unfolding when this all started 2007 [ with no place to go no one to catch them = substance abuse = social branding + downward spiral into utter helplessness ] ... Moral societies simply do not let this happen... [ foot note: I am 100% American & very proud to have served my country when I was called to do so... My country, our country is not functioning as a moral society now and needs the #OWS movement to address what a moral society should be addressing - your comments are welcomed and appreciated thank you ] think: isn't it a societies moral position that defines the people of that society? peace AtomicZ...
