Living amonst them

Unsurprisingly, San Francisco is a city full of ironic juxtapositions.

I can't even count the number of times I've overheard some hippies jabbering at the next table about the usual hippie crap - and then they go on to order dinner and wine that costs easily over $150 on two people without batting an eye.

Meanwhile, there are bums all over the place. Not that they're going hungry here either though. And apparently, a lot of them could have a roof over their heads if they so pleased.

So why not get into the program? There are gripes about the outreach workers, I suppose, that they pester residents to get rid of their drug or alcohol problems, but isn't that a small price to pay for a warm, dry place to live?

I'm going off on a tangent here but why is that even an excuse? And if someone says to you "I would rather do drugs and live like an animal in the street than have a roof over my head without drugs," well, what are you really supposed to do about that? Will increasing funding for the homeless really "help" someone like that? Is it even possible to help someone like that? And at what point is society not responsible for someone's personal decisions in the liberal mind?

Pretty sure there are no answers to any of those questions.
