Why are there homeless people in San Francisco?

As you know, I’m visiting here. And one thing I’ve noticed is that there are quite a few homeless people.
Why are the people of San Francisco so heartless? They must all be Tea Party supporters.
Why don’t the politicians here care about the poor? They must be Republicans.
How can citizens just walk by without helping? Probably too busy with their capitalism.
San Francisco is a beautiful city, but I don’t know if I could live in such a heartless, Republican, capitalistic place.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported that the annual sum spent on the homeless was in the vicinity of $250 million per annum and rising. Since the monies support a large number of social service groups and their many employees, what city is going to curtail a business as large as that in these times? Homelessness in San Francisco is an industry.
Absolutely right. Even the “faith-based” shelters that receive United Way and public funds are in on the gig. And they build their organizations in the same way the gov’t grows: by creating needs, creating new positions to fill them, and thus they pad their importance by the number of people they employ, and the number of people they “help.”
I’ve seen this first-hand. They are in symbiosis with the government. It’s sickening.
