    It's utterly unnecessary and a disgrace. I wish I had the power to do something about it.

    I am of the opinion that by joining into groups and combining their talents and resources people definitely can
    address big problems such as homelessness.

    Here is one write up that I did that should appeal to the political right.... conservatives.....


    http://www.politicalforum.com/relig...ations-should-print-their-own-currencies.html
    Large churches in democratic nations should print their own currencies.
    www.CalgaryDollars.ca/
    is a good example of how several dozen socially active residents of an area can begin what amounts to a second tier to the economy.

    The Ithaca Hour is an excellent example of a similar concept being applied in the United States.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ithaca_Hours
    Most North American churches have a desire to assist the poor and the oppressed. Well….. in 2014 efforts by a group of socially active Christians could easily transform dozens of homeless people into actors….. who are playing the role of homeless people….. and the specific efforts to help them could becomes scenes in a series of documentary and reality films designed to give the homeless people a job that finances their getting an apartment or at least a group home.

    Most of us are unaware of the Worgl, Austria local currency experiment that was conducted during the Great Depression and how successfully it was copied in hundreds of communities in the USA. As a matter of fact…… it looks like what these communities accomplished played a significant role in inspiring the USA government to alter the monetary system in many positive ways.
