State’s Homeless Student Report: Homeless student population grows 18% as federal funding decreases 10%
Aaahhhh, we're all going to die. Quick, raise taxes, get more involvement from the state! No wait a second...
10,737 homeless students in Oregon reported sharing housing with relatives or friends due to economic hardship or similar reason
Ironically I think that we could describe most college kids as "homeless" under this definition as could anyone who shares an apartment with someone and splits the bills.
Miss Crabapple - "Are you homeless Jimmy?"
Jimmy - "No but my Grandma lives with us..."
Miss Crabapple - "Wonderful my little homeless gold mine, we now get more money!"
And from the Register Guard story:
"Unaccompanied" youths, typically teens, are those who have been abandoned by their parents or have run away from home or foster care.
Parents who abandon their children should be arrested and charged. Kids who run away should not receive any support but should go back home. (and for those who say "but they ran away from an abusive home please refer back to the "arrested and charged" portion of this paragraph)
This is such crap and I don't buy any of it. The fact that every man-on-the-stree moron who was asked about this "statistic" attributed the "rise" to a "lack of affordable housing" just shows how powerful the liberal propaganda is.
How about: "are you homeless because your parents use meth?"
