The shell game politics of homelessness

“One would think, perhaps naively on my part, that politicos, as they typically do have private sector experience, would think things through. But alas, that is not the case, especially when it comes to troubleshooting social issues. Increasingly, it is much easier to simply “move the problem.” I mean seriously, who has time to actually sit down and think through a problem and try to develop a solution? Our public decision-makers, the politicos, don’t have time for that; they’re too busy worrying about the next election and supporting their power base, namely those who keep their campaign coffers on the green.” — Ain’t it the truth?

About tjmcfee

Freelance writer. Activist on homeless issues. 48 years old. I write about subjects that need to be examined closely and thoughtfully. The idea for Brain Sections came from reading a book about abandoned asylums. I wanted to set a suspense story in that setting. The inclusion of crazed scientists turning homeless people into zombies is what makes the story unique. View all posts by tjmcfee
