As for my insults, you'll see that they have been in direct proportion to your insults. O really? I`d say you are completely wrong. Go analize my posts as I`ve done yours: Insults = direct and personal. "you are a full fledged, flag waving idiot." Vague, Blanket or Indirect Insults "Typical Liberal" Other: every sentence over 1 or 2 words that doesn`t contain an insult.
If a sentence contains both an insult AND an "other" it gets counted as Insult only.
Lets see: >02, 10:05:08 AM 6 insults, 1 other >02, 10:17:43 AM 1 insult, 2 Vague, 4 other >02, 8:20:06 PM 3 Insults, 3 Other >03, 6:20:43 AM 1 Insult 4 Other You: 03, 2012 6:21:03 AM 3 Other
That`s: 28 sentences, 13 of which were insulting. 46% Insult Content. Notice how they decrease over time? Classical Conditioning! Woot!

How can you suggest that 99% of the homeless population is a result of substance abuse or mental illness and also insist that it's a choice?
@Patchouly: Because 99% of "street people" DO have one or both of those issues? Perhaps it`s lower elsewhere, like 97% or even 90%, but here the brutal winters FORCE others without those problems to get help. And THAT is the question at hand: IF (as you say) these people are victems of forces they cannot control? THEN society MSUT intervene to help them! I agree 100%! But, as I`ve illustrated, "liberal" powers-that-be flat out refuse to do that. In fact, they do the opposite! Until it`s overturned (and it never will be) in Manitoba you have the LEGAL RIGHT to live on the street and huff solvents. I`d bet it`s the same in every Province too.
I have The Depression (yes, capital letters) too, I KNOW FIRST HAND what it`s like.

As for the social programs, I don't know how they are in your Province, but here, they are great, unless you suffer from drug addiction or a mental issue. In those cases, there is very little help and you wind up on the street.
