Obama vows to end homelessness in 10 years

June 22, 2010

Chalk it up on the Hoping-and-a-Changing list.

“Stable housing is the foundation upon which people build their lives — absent a safe, decent, affordable place to live, it is next to impossible to achieve good health, positive educational outcomes or reach one’s economic potential.”

I have a great idea!  In order to end homelessness, the federal government should mandate that banks provide cheap loans to people who can’t necessarily afford to pay for them.  Nothing bad could ever happen from that, I mean, the benefits far out way any possible recession or bursting housing bubble or….

The Obama Administration plan sounds startlingly similar to President Bush’s plan to end homelessness.  Check Nan Roman, the president of the National Alliance to End Homelessness, shout out to the Bush policy.

I thought Obama was going to bring new fresh ideas to Washington?

All I need is a bit of hope hope hope, and some change change change

The state of American air traffic control is perilous.  GPS in planes sounds like a pretty great idea!

Of course, I would like to see the free-market implement the technology, not a government regulation.
