City to use the homeless as public toilets, trash cans

March 13, 2012 by  

While much attention goes to the United States’ huge national debt, few spend time understanding the debt some cities are dealing with and the steps needed to take to balance these smaller but vital coffers.

Newly homeless child Angela Angelson is unhappy she will be used as a toilet and trash can.

In cities like Needles, Calif. – which has a population of 15,000 and a debt of $450,000 – desperate times are calling for common-sense solutions. In it’s most controversial move, the City passed a law requiring the homeless to act as public toilets and trash cans to help defray costs.

“Let’s face it, these people are covered in trash and human waste almost constantly,” said Needles Mayor John Timmison. “Let’s finally give them the dignity they deserve by urinating on them and throwing trash at them.”

City Planner Rick Davidson said that the move will not only restore dignity to the homeless by letting them feel like they are a part of the community, it will also save the city substantial money.

“We’re looking at saving nearly $37,000 because of cuts in the city’s maintenance department,” said Davidson, who hinted that the homeless could be used for other duties such as speed bumps. “This is what happens when the government uses real-world corporate thinking. It’s really win-win.”

At least one homeless person seemed uneasy with the plan to restore dignity to the homeless via using them as restrooms and trash cans.

“It’s not fair!!” said 4-year-old Angela Angelson, who recently became homeless after her father lost a $37,000-a-year job with the city’s maintenance department.

    From what I understand by watching Fox news, all the homeless people in our country are homeless by choice. That is, homelessness is simply a “lifestyle” that some prefer. If Angela doesn’t like being homeless, maybe she should move to Russia. She doesn’t know how lucky she is to be homeless in ‘Merica as opposed to being homeless in some lesser nation.

    dgun is right. The homeless in America don’t know how good they have it, compared to everyone else in the world. At least they have bootstraps here.
