(Amanda Froelich) In the small town of Goodhue, Minnesota, a miracle was witnessed. After walking out of a grocery store, 54-year-old Howard Snitzer collapsed unexpectedly. Those who were nearby rushed to help. Their quick-thinking and perseverance ended up saving his life. Though the incident, which is now referred to as the “longest, successful out-of-hospital resuscitation,” occurred in 2011, we think it’s worth sharing.

(Matt Agorist) A kind and loving local chef woke up Tuesday morning to a dozen cops and health department officials raiding his home. Khemuel “Chef” Sanders had his business shut down, all of his equipment stolen by the state, and his life ruined because he made food in his home to give to the homeless.

NYC Musician Uses His Time and Talent to Illustrate True Compassion as a Voluntary Endeavor

Musician in NYC Performs Next To Homeless People So They Get More Cash:

My Commentary: Real compassion is voluntary…

But, hey, just quietly and passively pay those compulsory taxes to let the State “take care of” the homeless (AKA police harassment, corrupt shelter systems, vagrancy laws, destruction of property, fines, jails)!

Keep your soft, pink hands “clean,” my friends!

For just a taste of the truth about homelessness in NYC, and how the State represents the worse enemy to some of the most vulnerable members of our society, watch the movie, “The Saint of Fort Washington.”

But, Without Government, Who Would “Take Care” of the Homeless?

Update: Department Of Homelessness Renews Effort To Dismantle Tent Encampments Citywide:
http://sfist.com/2016/09/09/department_of_homelessness_and_sfpd.php

(Jack Morse) The newly created Department of Homelessness & Supportive Housing is set to begin the process of removing every single homeless encampment in the city — tent by tent. CBS 5 reports that the department’s deputy director, Sam Dodge, laid out this goal in conversation with the channel at the same time as SFPD Northern Station Captain John Jaimerena was telling Hoodline that his officers have no plans to take down encampments as it isn’t illegal to be homeless.

“We’ve seen an increase in encampments in the Mission district between 14th street and 19th street and South Van Ness and Harrison,” Dodge told CBS 5. “To try to go person by person, offer everyone at least shelter so that we can resolve an encampment.”

When pressed by CBS 5 if to “resolve an encampment” meant “taking them down,” Dodge replied, “yeah, that’s right.”
