My friend claims that 70-80% of homeless in the USA are living that way because they like it, not because they are poor. The government generally takes care of all poor people. Is it true?

Your friend must have been drunk or high on something when he or she said that. It is anything but the truth. Unfortunately things there are getting worse and more people are getting poor.

你的朋友说这话时一定是喝醉了或嗑嗨了吧。这绝对不是事实。不幸的是,情况到处都越来越糟糕,越来越多的人变得贫穷。

Son, Father and Grandfather. I once was a teenager.
About 100% of them are homeless because they are poor. But many of them don’t want to live in homeless shelters. They don’t want to follow the rules of the homeless shelters, such as no drinking, no drugs.

大概所有的无家可归者流浪的原因都是贫困。但他们中的相当大一部分人不想留在流浪汉收容所里。他们不想遵守无家可归者收容所的规定,比如不喝酒、不嗑药等等。

The homeless i’ve been around, like the govt.(our taxes) paying them & the handouts.I know some would like to change, But I’ve noticed the more free handouts, the more homeless. Interesting

我身边的无家可归者,政府(用我们的税)帮他们支付生活费用就像施舍一样。我知道有些流浪汉想改变,但我注意到免费的施舍越多,流浪汉也越多,真有意思。

your friend is wrong nobody likes being without a home and many of them are poor. Government taking care of the poor that is a lie they do very little to care for the poor me for example I get $ 16 a month food stamps some help with my rent but I pay $300 a month I pay some for my health insurance like $26 a month and have co pay at the doctor and drug store . but other wise I pay it . No it is not true they used to help the poor more like 40 years ago but now not really

你朋友是错误的,没人喜欢没家的感觉,但很多人都很穷。政府照顾穷人是个谎言 他们很少照顾穷人。以我本人为例,我每月能拿到 16 美元的食品券以及一些房租补贴,但我每月需要支付 300 美元 它还为我的健康保险支付一部分,大概是一个月 26 美元,在诊所和药店处共同支付。但其他的我得自己掏钱。不,或许它在40年前更像在帮助穷人,但现在这绝非实情。

John Atkins
Your friend is very right. Homeless want to be homeless and be giving free thing and live how they want to live. Homeless do not want to be told what to do . Just look how many are violent and cause damage to the city’s that they live in .

你朋友说的没错,无家可归者就是自己想当流浪汉,并要求他人向他们提供免费施舍,过他们自己想要的生活。无家可归者不想被告知自己应该干什么。看看他们中有多少暴力分子,对他们居住的城市造成了多大的破坏。

Not even slightly true. Of the fraction of so-called “homeless” people living that way because they prefer it over “the grind” of working-to-stay-alive, they choose this life mainly because the government doesn’t do enough, or even makes it painstakingly hard, to manage poverty. Of people who claim benefits, the organizations issuing benefits make people jump through a bureaucratic obstacle-course… half the time forcing people to fudge the system in order to keep their sanity (catch-22s, and such). Half the benefits workers I’ve met, if not all of them, have at one point in time or another actively participated in this “fudging” just because of the idiocy of the policies. Their jobs, and what they signed on for, is to help people, these social workers, not to push people away by following the rules to a T.
Living in America at the very bottom rung of society is like living in a Leper colony. It’s a literal nightmare.
I am one of those types. The rent prices in America are bullshit. The area I live isn’t particular expensive, it’s a somewhat quiet college hub town. Prices of rent here are equivalent to the most expensive places in Europe, such as Nice, France. That’s right, I could live in Nice, France for the amount I pay to live in a mediocre town in America.

这绝对不是实情。在所谓的“无家可归者”中,他们大多数人都不会喜欢这种生活方式,无家可归的原因都是“维持生计困难”,他们选择这种生活主要是因为政府做得不够,甚至没有做到尽力经营,治理贫困。福利发放组织帮着人们跳过官僚主义的障碍……这些官僚规则有一半以上的时间都在迫使申请福利的人们捏造各种理由以保持理智(catch-22s 等)。我遇到的福利工作者中,有一半以上(如果不是全部的话)都曾在这时或者某个时间点积极参与这种“捏造”,都是因为福利政策的愚蠢。这些社会工作者,他们工作以及签字的目的是帮助这些可怜人,而不是通过遵守(愚蠢的福利政策)规则将人们推开。
美国社会最底层的阶层就像生活在麻风病隔离区,这是一个完全字面意义上的噩梦。
我就是其中一个。美国的租金价格完全发了疯。我住的地区不是特别贵,是一个有点安静的大学中心城。这里的房租价格相当于欧洲最贵的地方,比如法国尼斯。是的,我完全可以用花在美国一个平庸小镇上租房的钱费用在法国尼斯过不错的日子。

Dr Gene Sharp, a late Harvard professor who spent his life studying nonviolence, said that fear breeds submission. It's well worth breeding fear in the majority in order to keep them submissive to the blatant injustices in the USA today for the government.
And it's also worth the effort for the corporations, which can keep a docile workforce by keeping a number of people unemployed: “You don't want to be like them, do you?” It's called a “reserve force” of employables, so that people can be dumped into the reserve when the profit-seekers want to slow production down and to find workers when they want to increase production.

哈佛已故教授吉恩·夏普博士一生都在研究非暴力社会,他说:恐惧会滋生顺从。所以在大多数人中滋生恐惧,以便让他们屈服于当今美国政府公然且不公的社会政策绝对是值得的。
对于公司来说,这也是值得的,它们可以通过让一些人失业来保持劳动者的驯服和温顺:“你不想像他们一样,对吧?” 它被称为就业人员的“后备力量”,以便在追求利润的资产阶级想减慢生产时将人们丢进在后备力量队伍里,然后在他们需要增加产量时从中寻找工人。

Stuart Slaugh
Well said. Fear that America might not always be on top and entitled drives most of the loony behavior. And such a pointless fear. If they ever actually taught authentic history or just critical thinking, it would be known that ALL empires and great political structures eventually fail. Just as the best engineered machine will someday fail. Entropy is part of the nature of things; it’s how new and better things emerge.

非常正确。对美国可能并不总是处于领先地位的恐惧,导致社会有权驱使大多数的疯狂行为,并且滋生这种毫无意义的恐惧。如果他们真的教过人们真实的历史或是批判性思维,就会知道所有伟大的帝国和政治结构最终都会失效。就像设计最好的机器也总有一天会失效一样。熵是事物本质的一部分,这就是促进新的更好的事物出现的方式。

If a person believes 75% of homeless Americans like living that way, they are either completely ignorant on the subject or have been completely bamboozled by right-wing propaganda and FOX news.
In general, it appears the American politicians and government doesn’t care much about their own citizens, especially if they are poor or of color. In many cases, such poor and homeless Americans can’t die fast enough for their tastes. “Why aren't you rich?”

如果一个人相信美国75% 的无家可归者是自己喜欢那样的生活,那么他们要么是对这个问题完全一无所知,要么是完全被右翼宣传和福克斯新闻蛊惑了。
总的来说,美国政客和政府似乎并不怎么关心自己的公民,特别是如果他们是穷人或有色人种。在许多情况下,这些贫穷和无家可归的美国人死得不够快,无法满足他们的口味。“你为什么富不起来(这完全是你自己的错)?”

Stuart Slaugh
You are correct. I grew up in Pittsburgh, PA and for what you pay for a one bedroom apt in LA, I could get a 2 bedroom house and half an acre of lawn. Yet, here I remain, in LA. Why? Some kind of personality disorder. I LOVE this place. Because it’s like a hundred different worlds under one roof. You CANNOT get bored in LA!…not just Chinatown but Little Tokyo, Thai-town, Little Ethiopia, Korea Town, Little Cambodia, Little Italy, Filipino Town, Little Armenia, practically all of Latin America, a large Israeli area, many Arabic and Greek communities in and around East Hollywood, and on and on. I will never leave.

你是对的。我在宾夕法尼亚州匹兹堡长大,花在洛杉矶买一间一居室公寓的钱,我可以在(匹兹堡)买到一间有两居室和半英亩草坪的房子。然而,我还是留在洛杉矶。为什么?某种人格障碍吧。我喜欢这个城市,因为它就像一个屋檐下的一百个不同的世界。你不会在洛杉矶感到无聊!总是期待着意外。而且……你会遇到一些世界上最优秀、受过教育的人,而且……你也会遇到一些最邪恶、最危险和最无用的人。我对这东西上瘾了。洛杉矶可能是历史上第一个拥有世界上几乎所有主要种族的城市,其数量大到足以拥有自己的村庄……不仅是唐人街,还有小东京、泰国小镇、小埃塞俄比亚、小韩国、小柬埔寨、小意大利、小菲律宾、小亚美尼亚,以及几乎整个拉丁美洲,一个很大的犹太人聚居区,好莱坞东部及其周边的许多阿拉伯人和希腊人社区,等等。我永远不会离开。

Not my experience at all. I have been interviewing people living rough in Jacksonville for the last 20 years. Of the 150 or so people I have met the breakdown in reason for living rough are as follows
70% are addicted to drugs and or alcohol and are unwilling or incapable of functioning in a manner that would allow employment. They have burned all their social bridges and have been kicked out of shelters because they cannot stay sober.
20% are mentally ill and either are not taking medication or have not been diagnosed and as such are not stable enough to hold a job or meet the requirements of a shelter.
8% are just doing there thing.
The remainder2% are people not in any of the first three groups. In fact, I have met a grand total of one person in this time that falls into this group. He was a handyman who was stiffed on a months wages by a customer. He lived on the streets for 20 days while he made up his loss. So 2% in my experience in Jacksonville, FL is generous. T is a myth to think most people living rough are mentally healthy people who are just down on their luck.

你朋友所说的完全不是我的体会。在过去的 20 年里,我一直在采访艰难地生活在杰克逊维尔的人。在我采访过的150多人中,生活艰难的原因细分如下:
70% 的人对毒品和/或酒精上瘾,并且不愿意或无法以工作等方式重新改变。他们摧毁了所有的社交网络,并因为无法保持清醒而被赶出流浪汉收容所。
20%的人患有精神疾病,要么没有按时服药,要么没有被诊断出来,因此不够稳定,无法从事工作或满足流浪汉收容所的要求。
8% 就是在那儿宅着。
其余 2% 是不属于前三组群体中任何一组的人。事实上,我在这段时间里总共只遇到过一个属于这类群体的人。他是一个勤杂工,被一个顾客拖欠了一个月的工资。他在街头流浪了20天,以弥补他的损失。因此,根据我在佛罗里达州杰克逊维尔的经验,只有2%左右是符合你朋友所说情况的。认为大多数生活艰难的人都是心理健康的、只是由于运气不佳而无家可归的,这是在说谎。

What about the disabled people who can’t afford a place to live. We don’t meet the financial requirements to apply at housing developments. These developments that are supposed to be low income. That is low income for working class not lowest income residents such as the disabled. I don’t want to live on the street I want a place to live and pay my bills. Btw I live in Fl and there is nothing available for someone who makes less than $14,000 a yr. So your disabled Americans are not being protected by fair housing!!!!!

那些买不起房的残疾人呢?我们不符合申请住房开发项目的财务要求。这本应是对低收入工人阶级的要求,而不应该是对残疾人等最低收入人群的要求。我不想住在街上,我需要一个地方住并支付账单。顺便说一句,我住在佛罗里达州,对于年收入低于 14,000 美元的人来说,什么都没有。所以残疾的美国人没有得到公平住房的保护!!!!!

My friend claims that 70-80% of homeless people in the USA are living that way because they like it, not because they are poor. The government generally takes care of all poor people. Is it true?
As an American who has spent my ENTIRE life in abject poverty I just want to laugh my ass off at the idea that the government is taking care of us. In all seriousness, there ARE government welfare programs but they leave much to be desired and they often get their funding cut. An awful lot of Americans get their panties all up in a bunch whenever they find out you're on any given welfare program (from food stamps to disability benefits) ESPECIALLY if they so much as suspect you don't “deserve” them.
What's not to like about being homeless? There's loads of perverts around who would love nothing more than to degrade and humiliate you. Depending on where exactly you live and what time of the year it is, you could face freezing to death or dying of heat stroke. Wouldn't you KILL to have the opportunity to live like this?
You need to befriend some more “woke” people.

你朋友声称,美国 70-80% 的无家可归者之所以这样生活,是因为他们喜欢这样,而不是因为他们很穷。政府一般会照顾所有穷人。这是真的吗?
作为一个一辈子都在赤贫中度过的美国佬,我只想对政府正在照顾我们的想法苦笑一下。严肃地说,政府福利计划确实有,但它们有很多不足之处,而且经常被削减资金。每当他们发现你参加任何特定的福利计划(从食品券到残疾福利)时,特别是如果他们怀疑你“不配”时,就会有很多人开始小题大做。
有谁会喜欢无家可归?周围有很多变态,他们只会贬低和羞辱你。取决于你呆着的地方和时间,你随时可能会面临冻死或中暑死亡。像这样生活,你干嘛不干脆自杀算了?

Whilst there will always be a few people who enjoy the freedom of a vagrant lifestyle, the majority are homeless because they’ve slipped through the cracks in society, a lost job, unexpected medical bills, messy divorce, mental illness, they can all lead someone on the slippery slope to homelessness, and the Government definitely doesn’t take care of them

虽然总会有少数人愿意享受流浪生活方式的自由,但大多数人无家可归,是因为他们已经跌入了社会的深渊中,失业、意外的医疗费用、混乱的离婚、精神疾病,这些都可以导致有人跌倒在无家可归的滑坡上,政府绝对不会照顾他们

Marcus Axel
I’d say it’s more like 7 or 8%. I just made that up, but I do think it’s the exception, not the rule. Government housing, has a very long waiting list where I live, years. A welfare check and food stamps is not enough money to prevent homelessness. It’s barely enough to cover food and bus fare. The government does not take care of all poor people. We have a social safety net that helps, but it’s not enough to keep people off the streets, not even close. I’m no expert but I’ve volunteered at a homeless shelter. I got the impression that most of the homeless had mental issues, or social issues, probably couldn’t get through a job interview with any success. We provided showers, clean clothes, an address, a phone number, all a person needs to get it together and job hunt, but it’s not enough for many. Although some take full advantage and do all they can to get back to taking care of themselves. Even if someone prefers this lifestyle, because competing in the economy is too overwhelming, or they’re just not capable, I think they’d still like a warm, safe place to sleep at night and our society has not stepped up. It’s miserable to live on the street. A shelter is not a secure home 365 days a year. At most, we’re able to keep people from freezing to death, and sometimes we fail at that.

我会说这个比例更像是 7% 或 8%。我只是脑补出来的,但我确实认为这是少数,而不是大部分。政府住房,在我住的地方有非常长的等候名单,好几年了。福利支票和食品券不足以让人无家可归。这几乎不足以支付食物和公共交通的费用。政府没有照顾所有穷人。我们有一个社会安全网可以提供帮助,但这甚至还不足以让人们远离街道。我不是专家,但我曾在无家可归者收容所做过志愿者。我的印象是,大多数无家可归的人都有心理或社会问题,可能无法通过成功的面试。我们提供了淋浴、干净的衣服、地址、电话号码,所有这些都是一个人聚集在一起和找工作所需的,但这对很多人来说还不够。尽管有些人充分利用并竭尽全力恢复自己照顾自己。即使有人喜欢这种生活方式,因为在经济中竞争太激烈,或者他们只是没有能力,我认为他们仍然希望在晚上有一个温暖、安全的地方睡觉,而我们的社会还没有进步。流落街头非常可怜。庇护所并不是一年365天都安全的家。最多我们能够让人们免于冻死,但有时我们仍会失败。

I have a mental health condition and I so want the help to get my life together unfortunately the state I live in has piss poor health care especially mental health!! I'm very high functioning to have a mental health condition. As I have gotten older my temper has gotten worse and I have no.Myself and others definitely need counseling more than just seeing a doctor once every 3 months for 20 minutes…

我有心理健康问题,我很想得到帮助,让我的生活过得更愉快,不幸的是,我生活的州医疗保健很差,尤其是心理健康!!我的心理健康状况曾经不错,随着年龄的增长,我的脾气变得更糟,我自己和其他人肯定需要更多的咨询,而不仅仅是每隔3个月在医生那儿看20分钟......

Hi. Everything you said is false. People tell themselves that the homeless like being homeless(!), and are actually well taken care-of by the government. If they repeat that nonsensical myth to themselves enough, then they can sleep each night.

嗨。你(朋友)说的一切都是谎言。人们告诉自己,无家可归者喜欢无家可归(!),并且实际上受到政府的照顾。如果他们对自己重复这个荒谬的神话足够多,那么他们每晚就可以安心入睡了。
美国人忽视无家可归者,因为这让我们感到内疚,干脆不去想他们。毕竟,他们一定做了什么导致他们无家可归的事情,对吧?他们肯定是屡次犯罪……对吧?
我们对待无家可归者就像对待儿童癌症患者一样。他们不会只是无辜地感染癌症,对吧?显然,他们一定犯了很多罪,也许从出生开始,没错,就是这样,对吧?!

No, they do not like it!
People find themselves on the street for millions of reasons. Our Vets come home from war and can’t get a job. People get fired from a job and can’t find a new one. Companies send work to Mexico, etc. and put thousands out on the street because they can’t make mortgage payment. The government closed all mental facilities and orphanages, so hundreds ended up on the street. Girls and boys are sexually abused in their home, and they run away with no money and end up on the street or working for a pimp. The gov’t should be taking care of the homeless rather than sending millions/billions to overseas countries. Why would we give Ireland money? I don’t know, but I read that we did.

不,没人喜欢这样!
人们流落街头会有数百万个原因。退伍军人从战争中回来,找不到工作。人们被解雇,找不到新工作。企业把工作送到了墨西哥等地,让数千人因为无法支付抵押贷款失去房屋。政府关闭了精神病院和孤儿院,因此数百人不得不无处可去。儿童在家遭到性虐待,他们没有钱逃跑,最终流落街头或为皮条客工作。政府难道不应该照顾无家可归的人,而不是向海外国家发送数十亿美元。我们为什么要给爱尔兰钱?我不知道,但我确实看到我们国际在这么做。

Sandra Gilleland
Does the US give aid to Ireland? I googled this and the answer below came up. $544 million given to Ireland!!!!
U.S. Assistance to IrelandThe U.S. government has contributed more than $544 million to the IFI since its establishment.

美国是否向爱尔兰提供援助?我用谷歌搜索了这个,下面的答案出现了。向爱尔兰提供了 5.44 亿美元!!!!:
美国对爱尔兰的援助自 IFI 成立以来,美国政府已向 IFI 捐助了超过 5.44 亿美元。(译注:有趣的发现。IFI指爱尔兰国际基金,成立于1986年,旨在促进北爱尔兰亲英派和统一派之间对话,该基金会完全由美国政府资助,是美国政府插手北爱局势的主要工具)

That is not true at all, this country hates poor people. Most American view the poor as just parasites on society sucking the lifeblood of this country dry. No. No one would want to be thought of like that. The poor do not choose to be poor. The worst of them are victims of bad habits developed from childhoods of neglect and mistreatment. Most of them are stuck in negative feedback loops of working low paying jobs that pay just not enough to keep a roof over their heads. They want to pursue better things but they can’t. That takes time and money, two things they don’t have.

这根本不是真的,这个国家讨厌穷人。多数美国人认为穷人只是社会的寄生虫,吸干了这个国家的血脉。不,没有人愿意被这样想。穷人不会自己选择贫穷。其中最糟糕的是从童年的忽视和被虐中养成的恶习的受害者。他们中的大多数人都陷入了低薪工作的负反馈循环中,这些工作的薪水不足以让他们拥有一个屋顶。他们想追求更好的东西,但他们不能。这需要时间和金钱,这两样都是他们没有的。

Wendy Beecher
Absolutely not! That is a lie that selfish people tell themselves so they can justify not helping and looking down upon someone in bad circumstances. No one WANTS to suffer. Yes there are a rare few that like living nomadically and enjoy and unencumbered life but no one wants to be unable to provide themselves with basic human necessities of life

绝对不!这是自私的人告诉自己的谎言,这样他们就可以为拒绝提供帮助和瞧不起处于恶劣环境中的人辩护。没人愿意受苦。是的,或许有少数人喜欢游牧生活,享受无拘无束的生活,但没人希望无法获取基本的人类生活必需品

Your friend could not back up that ridiculous claim. He just made it up or heard it on some right wing broadcast. The government takes care of as many as it can, but the Republican party has been sabotaging these programs for decades. The government takes EXCELLENT care of the Uber Rich!

你朋友无法支持这个荒谬的说法。这是编造出来的,或者是在某些右翼广播中听到的。政府应该尽其所能,但共和党几十年来一直在破坏这些计划。政府非常照顾优步这样的富豪!

Janis Saks
So right wingers are all automatically wrong?

所以右翼都是天生错误的咯?

Stuart Slaugh
Of course not. In my opinion, TODAY’S brand of right winger is as potentially destructive as the far left. Actually, more dangerous because the militias are far more organized, disciplined and have access to more resources; for every George Soros, there’s a Koch brother bankrolling extreme ideologies. The far rights refusal to acknowledge the heavy toll on society that contempt for black folks has exacted, the historic marginalization of gays; these things lead inevitably to excesses on the left.

当然不是。在我看来,今天的右翼势力与极端左派一样具有潜在的巨大破坏性。实际上,它们更危险,因为(右翼)民兵组织更严密,纪律更严明,可以获得更多资源;对于每个乔治索罗斯来说,都有一个科赫兄弟在背后资助极端意识形态。极右翼拒绝承认歧视黑人给社会造成的沉重代价,同性恋群体被历史性的边缘化,这些事情不可避免地导致左派的过激行为。

Michael Hanson
Hi. I have a couple of questions about your friend who is making the assumption that 70 to 80% of us homeless are living this way because we all apparently like it.
First question: Does your friend understand the fact that if he can't afford to pay his rent that his landlord probably won't like it too much, evict your friend so that someone who is able to pay rent can move in?
Second: Is your friend aware of the fact that there are many people living in abusive situations, they don't want to continue being in their situation and often move away from their abuser regardless if it means being homeless?
Third: Has your friend read anything aside from fiction (sci-Fi, fantasy?), meaning is your friend completely oblivious to what has happened in the history of a country like the United States. Things like the great depression happened in 1929, and the great recession in 2008.
It is actually humerous to think that homelessness happens to people with chemical dependence issues. Or to people suffering from some mental illness issues. The fact of the matter is that if you are spending above 30% of your income on rent alone. You have a good chance of becoming homeless yourselves. When that occurs. You to can be on the receiving end of all of the negative opinions concerning what causes homelessness.
Hmmm. I wonder what has happened to people's jobs since the Pandemic became an issue. I sincerely apologize to those of you who are going to end up being homeless because of the Coronavirus.
However, to those of you who are still of the opinion that being crazy, or being a drunk etc.. Are the root cause of experiencing homelessness.
Let the next 9 months be a wake up call for you.

你好。我有几个关于你的朋友的问题,他假设70%到80% 的无家可归者显然都喜欢都这样生活。
第一个问题:你的朋友是否明白,如果他付不起房租,他的房东可能不会太高兴,他会驱逐你的朋友,让有能力支付房租的人搬进来?
第二:你的朋友是否意识到有很多人生活在虐待环境中,他们不想继续处于他们的处境,并且希望远离施虐者,无论这是否意味着无家可归?
第三:你的朋友读过除了幻想小说以外的任何东西吗?这意思是你的朋友完全不知道像美国这样的国家的历史发生过什么事。大萧条发生在 1929 年,然后2008年又来了一次。
认为无家可归仅发生在有药物成瘾问题或患有某些精神疾病问题的人群上实际上是很可笑的。事实是,如果得将收入的 30% 以上用于租金,你很有可能成为无家可归的人。发生这种情况时,对于导致无家可归的原因,你可能会接受所有负面意见。
嗯。我想知道自从大流行成为一个问题以来人们的工作发生了什么变化。我真诚地向那些因冠状病毒而最终无家可归的人道歉。
但是,对于那些仍然认为疯狂,或醉酒等的人来说。是导致无家可归的根本原因。
接下来的 9 个月将成为你的警钟。

Carly Fournier
And now here we are in 2021 under a fake global pandemic to bring in a global dictatorship and population control. The middle class are being weeded out. Many have lost their small business. People are without work or have very little work. We will be seeing more turning to panhandling, prostitution, drug dealing and stealing. We have tent cities and the government preventing noble people from helping the homeless with built temporary shelters (Toronto, ON Canada). People need to wake up and take action now before they loose even more of their freedom.

现在,我们来到了 2021 年,在一场虚假的全球疫情大流行下,将带来全球独裁和人口控制。中产阶级正在被淘汰。许多人失去了他们的小生意。人们没有工作或几乎没有工作。我们将看到更多人转向乞讨、卖淫、毒品交易和偷窃。现在到处都有帐篷城,并且政府阻止通过建造临时庇护所帮助无家可归者(加拿大多伦多)。人们需要在失去更多自由之前醒来并立即采取行动。

“Because they like it” is a very misleading phrase. I doubt you’d find many who tell you they actually like being homeless. But there are many homeless who are there because they have made choices that put them there. Many homeless shelters require the resident to be sober and drug-free, and many people choose not to be sober and not to give up the drugs, thereby “choosing” to be homeless. Others may choose not to follow draconian rules. I would hesitate to quote a percentage, but this is what it means when someone “likes it” that way.

“因为他们喜欢”是一个非常具有误导性的短语。我怀疑你会发现很多人告诉你他们实际上喜欢无家可归。但是有许多无家可归的人之所以在那里,是因为他们做出了将他们安置在那里的选择。许多收容所要求住进来的人要保持清醒无毒品,很多人无法做到戒酒、戒毒,从而“选择”无家可归。其他人可能选择不遵守那么严厉的规则。我会犹豫提出一个百分比,但这就是当有人以这种方式“喜欢”时的真实意思。

“Like it”? Well have you priced a 1 br apartment in SF? I'd rather live in a tent in SF than live in a shit hole (Trump's words) state.
No the gov doesn't take care of ALL it's poor people. As a matter of fact they want to reduce the bailout amount from $1200 to $600 for the truly poor. Explain that logic?

“喜欢它”?你有没有为旧金山的 1 居室公寓定价?我宁愿住在旧金山的帐篷里,也不愿住在狗屎坑(特朗普的原话)的状态。
不,政府不照顾所有穷人。事实上,他们希望将真正穷人的救助金额从 1200 美元减少到 600 美元。谁能解释一下这个逻辑?

No it isn't true. Registered sex offenders can't find a place to live because of all the legalities and harassment, so being homeless is the best option.
The only way to survive really is to only accept positions that are consistent in daily hours and fulltime. It is very important to only accept jobs that immediately offer: Affordable Medical Insurance, 401K, Retirement Pay, Overtime Pay, Sick Pay, Family Sick Pay, Paid Vacation…
We're all in this situation and really the United States need to make provisions or policies to help the poor. Many know it isn't going to help matters just by accepting any job. All folks should refuse job offers: that are under the table, requiring you to work extra time unless they pay according to your state's labor laws, that are commission only, that make you pay for your own gas and car insurance when the job requires you to drive, under $20 an hour, that are salary (they will overwork you equaling your pay to state minimum), don't accept part time especially split shift or rotational shift, oh and don't fall for the “pay us: to train you, for your sales kit, for samples, for the supplies, for your uniform” that is their money making scam…
Hey rich people when you are ready to do the right thing please make an announcement for all homeless people to know you will give them a job without requiring a home address, good credit, clean legal records, and more importantly punctuality.
Many have medical conditions or court order regulations that will have to be accommodated. Some have children that will need to be taken to school and picked up from school. When the child gets sick the parent has to stay with the child until healthy again. More often parents end up ill in which cannot work. Are you willing to continually pay for those absent days for doctors, probation officers, court days, childcare isn't an option when children become ill …

不,这不是真的。由于所有的合法性和骚扰,已登记的性犯罪者找不到住处,所以无家可归是最好的选择。
真正生存的唯一方法是只接受每天和全职一致的职位。只接受立即提供的工作非常重要:负担得起的医疗保险、401K、退休金、加班费、病假工资、家庭病假工资、带薪假期……
我们都处于这种情况,美国确实需要制定条款或政策来帮助穷人。许多人都知道,接受任何工作都无济于事。所有的人都应该拒绝工作机会:这是在桌子底下,要求你加班,除非他们根据你所在州的劳动法支付工资,这只是佣金,当工作需要你时,让你支付自己的汽油和汽车保险开车,每小时 20 美元以下,这是工资(他们会过度劳累你等于你的最低工资),不要接受兼职,尤其是分班或轮班,哦,不要因为“付钱给我们:培训你,为你的销售工具包,样品,供应品,你的制服“这是他们赚钱的骗局......
嘿,有钱人,当你准备好做正确的事情时,请向所有无家可归的人发布公告,让他们知道你将为他们提供一份工作,而无需提供家庭住址、良好的信用、干净的法律记录,更重要的是守时。
许多人有必须适应的医疗条件或法院命令规定。有些孩子需要被带到学校并从学校接走。当孩子生病时,父母必须陪在孩子身边直到他恢复健康。更常见的是,父母最终生病无法工作。你是否愿意继续为医生、假释官、法庭日、儿童生病时无法提供托儿服务的缺勤日支付昂贵的费用……

And nobody wants to hear that America needs some serious re-tooling. It is post post WW ll, and my fear is that too many Americans are walking around in a movie, unprepared for the relentless drive of history and change

没有人愿意听到美国需要一些认真的重组。二战结束后,我担心太多美国人在电影情节里沉溺太多,对历史和变革的无情驱动毫无准备。

Not sure how you would measure such a thing. People “choosing to be homeless” certainly is a real phenomenon, but is extremely unlikely to be 70–80% of all homeless people. Mental health problems, severe substance addiction/abuse problems, and abusive domestic situations (or all of the above) are common causes of homelessness. Dropping out of society by choice happens but is lower down on the list. And those that do “choose it” are often already suffering from one of the conditions above. If your options are stay in your home where you are sexually abused or live on the street, it's not really a choice. It's like deciding between being shot to death or being stabbed to death. Just because you pick one or the other doesn't mean you want it to happpen.
While true that the government and various private institutions and charities do provide a great many services and resources for the poor, there are limits to what they can provide, and these are often regional so in some geographic areas they can be completely overrun. These entities also typically require a certain level of cooperation and engagement that is very simple to manage for the kinds of people who don't actually need these services but can be very difficult for someone who already fell through the cracks in society, often precisely because they struggle with these sorts of things: staying sober, filling out paperwork, dealing with authority figures, problem solving, doing research, providing documentation, keeping track of information, showing up at specific places at specific times, getting along with others, following rules, etc.
The middle and upper classes are primarily the ones designing, funding, and operating these systems. They don't intentionally make them hard to access, but what seems like a simple and obvious requirement to them such as “we aren't going to help you if you're doing illegal drugs” can be a real problem for someone who is already physically addicted to illegal drugs. So there is lots of assistance, but it's scope can be somewhat limited.

不知道你会如何衡量这样的事情。人们“选择无家可归”当然是一个真实的现象,但极不可能占所有无家可归者的 70-80%。心理健康问题、严重的物质成瘾/滥用问题和虐待家庭情况(或以上所有情况)是无家可归的常见原因。有选择地退出社会的情况,但在名单上的位置较低。而那些“选择它”的人往往已经患有上述情况之一。如果你的选择是留在遭受性虐待的家中或流落街头,那真的不是一个选择。这就像在被枪杀或被刺死之间做出选择。仅仅因为你选择其中一个并不意味着你希望它发生。
尽管政府和各种私人机构和慈善机构确实为穷人提供了大量服务和资源,但它们所能提供的服务和资源是有限的,而且这些服务通常是区域性的,因此在某些地理区域中它们可能会被完全覆盖。这些实体通常还需要一定程度的合作和参与,这对于那些实际上并不需要这些服务的人来说非常容易管理,但对于那些已经在社会中陷入困境的人来说可能非常困难,通常正是因为他们在这些事情上挣扎:保持清醒,填写文书工作,与权威人物打交道,解决问题,进行研究,提供文件,跟踪信息,在特定时间出现在特定地点,与他人相处,遵守规则, 等等。
中上阶层主要是设计、资助和运营这些系统的人。他们并不是故意让他们难以获得,但对他们来说似乎简单而明显的要求,例如“如果你在吸毒,我们不会帮助你”对于那些吸毒的人来说可能是一个真正的问题身体已经对非法毒品上瘾了。所以有很多帮助,但它的范围可能比较有限。

Colleen Farrelly
, Data Scientist/Poet/Social Scientist/Topologist (2009-present)
No, the government doesn’t take care of poor people who try hard. About 70–80% of homeless people are temporarily homeless. They lose a job, lose insurance, and have someone get sick. Or they end up moving somewhere with a rental falling through. Or something else. Many are back on their feet by the time the government gets around to looking through paperwork. There’s a huge safety net for people who buy in to the culture of welfare, but there’s little actual support for people who are trying but falling on hard times occasionally.

不,政府不会照顾努力的穷人。大约 70-80% 的无家可归者暂时无家可归。他们失去了工作,失去了保险,有人生病了。或者他们最终搬家,租金落空。或者是其他东西。当政府开始查看文书工作时,许多人已经重新站起来。对于接受福利文化的人来说,有一个巨大的安全网,但对于那些勇于尝试但偶尔陷入困境的人来说,几乎没有实际支持。

Wendy Beecher
Very true. Also let's see if people don't understand is just because there's an agency or office that is supposed to do something to help is it mean to have the funding available to help

非常真实。另外让我们看看人们是否不明白仅仅是因为有一个机构或办公室应该做一些事情来提供帮助是不是意味着有可用的资金来帮助

This answer of mine to another question is relevant here.
Homelessness is due to to the difficulty in finding homes in places where people earn their income. Homeless people in California may (can) have homes elsewhere, and they may not stay even if the residence is provided in the suburb. They want to live in downtown areas where they can get some income. This would make the rehabilitation efforts of the governmental and non-governmental organisations less effective

我对另一个问题的回答在这里是相关的。
无家可归是因为在人们赚取收入的地方很难找到房子。加利福尼亚的无家可归者可能在其他地方有住所,即使在郊区为他们提供住所,他们也可能不会留下来。他们想住在市中心,在那里他们可以获得一些收入。这将使政府和非政府组织的恢复努力变得不那么有效。

James La Barba
Not true. I’m a retired gasman and have been door to door all day for over 33years. And have seen thousands of section 8ers (government pays rent) with multiple kids with different dads. That are probably 3rd generation well fair. Living in places as good and better than me. Makes me feel great struggling all day every day, year after year and am paycheck to paycheck. Then servicing someone like this. They have a bigger T.V. And better Nike shoes than me and my one son. Makes me sick.

不对。我是一名退休的加油员,33 多年来一直挨家挨户地走。我看到数以千计的根据第 8 部分法规(由政府支付租金)的有多个孩子和不同父亲组成的家庭,(他们)住在和我一样好的地方。让我感觉每天都在挣扎,年复一年,而且我的薪水要为这样的人服务。他们有比我和我的儿子更大的电视和更好的耐克鞋。让我感觉很不舒服。

Your friend is totally ill-informed on all counts. While this might be because they have bought into the usual loopy “news” sources, odds are they feel bad and feel incapable of helping.
The largest cohort of homeless are … children. They get priority coverage in shelters and with programs, but the programs are hopelessly underfunded and understaffed.
Most homeless have a full-time job, they often have two part-time jobs.
They are often assaulted, robbed, and the abuse is endless.
Homelessness is a trap - easy to fall into and nearly impossible to escape on your own.
And most of the homeless do not have mental issues or substance abuse issues - until they are homeless.
It is a very, very painful and dangerous condition. A simple scrape, toothache, or bout of diarrhea is suddenly potentially lethal.
Your friend probably thinks it could never happen to him. It happens a LOT.

你的朋友在所有方面都完全不知情。虽然这可能是因为他们已经接受了通常的循环“新闻”来源,但很可能他们感觉很糟糕并且无法提供帮助。
最大的无家可归者群体是……儿童。他们在庇护所和计划中获得优先保障,但这些计划的资金和人手严重不足,这是无可救药的。
大多数无家可归者都有一份全职工作,他们通常有两份兼职工作。
他们经常遭到殴打、抢劫,虐待无休无止。
无家可归是一个陷阱——很容易掉进去,靠自己几乎不可能逃脱。
大多数无家可归者没有精神问题或药物滥用问题——直到他们无家可归。
这是一种非常、非常痛苦和危险的情况。一个简单的擦伤、牙痛或腹泻突然就可能致命。
你的朋友可能认为这永远不会发生在他身上。但它已经多次发生了。

“It is the natural tendency of the ignorant to believe what is not true. In order to overcome that tendency it is not sufficient to exhibit the true; it is also necessary to expose and denounce the false. To admit that the false has any standing in court, that it ought to be handled gently because millions of morons cherish it and thousands of quacks make their livings propagating it—to admit this, as the more fatuous of the reconcilers of science and religion inevitably do, is to abandon a just cause to its enemies, cravenly and without excuse.”

“相信不真实的东西是无知者的自然倾向。为了克服这种倾向,仅仅展示真实是不够的;揭露和谴责虚假也是必要的。承认虚假在法庭上有任何地位,它应该被温和地处理,因为数以百万计的白痴珍惜它,成千上万的庸医以传播它为生——承认这一点,因为科学与宗教调和者中更愚蠢的人不可避免地做,就是将正义的事业放弃给敌人,胆怯而没有借口。”

I'm only going to affirm what pretty much everyone else said, but I have a weird example too. This assumption seems like a way to not deal with the problem. True not everyone who is homeless is poor, but most are. I can't think of any time a homeless person expressed they liked it, but preferring it to some other bad situation, yeah. I appreciate you asking to clarify and not just assuming your friend was right.
My dad is currently homeless. He works as an athletic trainer. He walks around well groomed and clothed. Looking at him or talking with him, he doesn't seem homeless at all. He does always carry around big backpacks with his belongings (being an athlete, he claims he's using it to workout). I believe he normally sleeps on busses, trains, movie theaters or parks whenever he has down time. We moved out our home and he just never got back into a house. Probably stayed in his car, but he let that go too. He's a very interesting case to me, probably in the category of stable means and mental condition but just more comfortable with not having to pay for so much stuff. Anyway, not necessarily poor, he doesn't rely on government aid.

我只会肯定其他人所说的话,但我也有一个奇怪的例子。这种假设似乎是一种不处理问题的方法。诚然,并非所有无家可归的人都是穷人,但大多数都是。我想不出任何时候一个无家可归的人表示他们喜欢它,但比其他一些糟糕的情况更喜欢它,是的。感谢你要求澄清,而不仅仅是假设你的朋友是对的。
我父亲目前无家可归。他是一名运动教练。他穿着整齐,穿着整齐。看着他,或者和他说话,他似乎一点也没有无家可归的样子。他确实总是带着随身物品随身携带大背包(作为一名运动员,他声称他正在用它来锻炼)。我相信每当他有空闲时间时,他通常都会睡在公共汽车、火车、电影院或公园里。我们搬出了我们的家,他就再也没有回过家。可能留在他的车里,但他也放弃了。他对我来说是一个非常有趣的案例,可能属于稳定和精神方面的状况,但或许只是更愿意不必为这么多东西付钱。反正不是因为贫困,他并不依靠政府援助。

I've done a lot of volunteer work with the homeless communities in and around Seattle. Your friend is absolutely wrong. From the decade-plus that I have been an advocate for homeless people, I've seen an overwhelming majority of them be healthy people who had an unexpected bill come up, then they get into a snowball effect of trying to catch up, borrowing to pay a bill and then end up further in debt and poverty.
People don't want to live that way, but poverty wages are far too common.

我为西雅图及其周边的无家可归者社区做了很多志愿者工作。你的朋友完全错了。从我倡导无家可归者的十多年以来,我看到他们中的绝大多数都是健康的人,他们遇到了意想不到的账单,然后他们陷入了雪球效应,试图赶上,借钱支付账单,然后进一步陷入债务和贫困。
人们不想那样生活,但贫困现象太普遍了。

homeless people are poor.
Homeless people are extreme poor, it’s just our country is a Democracy. it’s not Africa where a king is forcing people to starve for spite
We have plenty food for the homeless it’s just we put them in jail, shelters, hospitals instead of letting them walk around naked like the kings of Africa.

无家可归的人很穷。
无家可归的人非常贫穷,只是我们的国家是民主国家。不是在非洲,酋长们强迫人们因仇恨而挨饿

No government doesn’t provide for almost anyone who doesn’t have children. Even food stamps were only for 3 months for adults in the 70s when I had them. TANF and other benefits aren’t enough for housing and section 8 takes about a decade to get.
The poor choose homeless over the other choices sometimes. To stay homed you need to get along with family and friends, stay sober, take your mental health medicine and work more than one job. The work might be really hard or stressful but if you want to live indoors you do what you need to do. Long term you need to gain job skills, you can’t plan to live on one part time minimum wage job and not even have an emergency fund and have it work out. Spending on alcohol, tobacco, drugs or other waste of money makes it harder to stay indoors.

没有政府不为几乎没有孩子的任何人提供服务。70 年代我有食品券时,成年人的食品券也只有 3 个月。TANF 和其他福利对于住房来说是不够的,第 8 部分(即由政府提供廉租房或代缴租金)需要大约十年才能获得。
穷人有时会选择无家可归而不是其他选择。为了待在家里,你需要与家人和朋友相处融洽,保持清醒,服用心理健康药物并从事不止一份工作。工作可能真的很辛苦或压力很大,但如果你想住在室内,你就做你需要做的事。从长远来看,你需要获得工作技能,你不能计划靠一份兼职的最低工资工作,甚至没有应急基金并让它解决。在酒精、烟草、毒品或其他浪费金钱上的花费使得待在室内变得更加困难。

Your question: “Is it true?” means the most to me. Before using any information to make a decision it is important to decide how important the information is to your question and to verify that the information is accurate. I do not know your friend or his abilities in mathematics. To say that such a large percentage of any random grouping of human beings has anything in common seems doubtful to me. I suspect that it is not accurate and was probably invented by your friend to sound like an authority. People do things for many reasons, define problems in different ways, consider some things are more important, and attach less value to others when considering possible solutions to any problem. I doubt that any legitimate research exists which concludes that 70–80 percent of homeless people have chosen that life because they like it. Congratulations to you for asking the right question, it is important to have accurate and reliable information at all times.

你的问题:“这是真的吗?” 对我来说是最重要的。在使用任何信息做出决定之前,重要的是要确定该信息对你的问题的重要性并验证该信息是否准确。我不知道你的朋友或他的数学能力。要说如此大比例的任何随机人类群体有任何共同点,对我来说似乎是值得怀疑的。我怀疑它不准确,可能是你的朋友发明的,听起来像权威。人们做事的原因有很多,以不同的方式定义问题,在考虑任何问题的可能解决方案时,会认为有些事情更重要,而对其他事情的重视程度较低。我怀疑是否存在任何合法的研究得出这个结论,即 70-80% 的无家可归者选择这种生活是因为他们喜欢这种生活。

To be homeless not only means you have no money to pay rent but you have no family that will take you in either because they are also poor or you are annoying. At best goverment try to keep people from freezing to death in cold climates and shelter to families with children.

无家可归不仅意味着你没有钱支付房租,而且你没有家人会收留你,因为他们也很穷,或者你也很让人烦。政府充其量是尽量避免人们在寒冷气候下冻死,并为有孩子的家庭提供庇护。
