I gave my patient a tent. Some say that makes me the bad guy. What would you have done?

Show him some Three Stooges reruns? Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he'll eat for a lifetime.

IT sounds like this guy is beyond delousing, a shave and a haircut, new clothes and help finding employment. In that case I would show him how to collect suitable building material and how to erect his own shanty. This was popular in 1933 during the height of the Great Depression, when encampments were called Hoovervilles. Today we could call them Trudeau Towns or Ford's Corners.

This to me seems like a wiser thing to have done since the Plandemic appears set to last many years longer than the Great Depression. A tent, which is a compassionate gift, is only useful for at most three seasons. Whereas a well constructed shanty could be occupied for many years, giving the subject of your project sufficient time to ...

As an alternative to a well constructed shanty, that its builder could take some pride in, there are also plenty of vaccines in area hotels. Hotels are currently experiencing 42% occupancy which is less than what they felt at 44% during the height of the Great Depression. Perhaps a legal clinic could twist some words and make IT appear as though they are all refugees in their own land and get them free room and board. I dunno.

I do know the homeless like to be close to the soup kitchens and food banks which is why they chose to be where they're at. I completely understand that. But the availability of employment is lacking downtown due to the absurd economic destruction taking place at the moment. In 1933, homeless people took whatever work they could find which included fruit picking.

You gave him a tent; Have him pitch IT in a Niagara Peninsula orchard. He might just get lucky, get hired as a fruit picker and have plenty to eat for a season.

An apple a day keeps the doctor away so thanks for sharing, Tim O'Shea.
