Never At A Loss

I have always Been A person Who is Never at a Loss For words, That is Until recently In My life As I have been often distracted as to where My life Is going and the direction it has now taken. I for years was Defined by myself and others as a homeless man and I am now finding that I am so Much More.
I was Happy with being homeless, My homeless Story was Not one of despair nor was it ever one Of Hopelessness, while for years I struggled with myself in my fight against addiction and alcoholism I some 14yrs ago overcame even that struggle and have not drank Or returned to my Junkie ways since. More importantly I became comfortable with Me and Who I was. As A Human being, and I faced the reality Of no matter My station In life I will always still Be Me. I am Human, I am a Man And I have everything a Person can Have to offer to others I have within Me the ability To Love and To share my friendship and compassion with those who I come into contact with.
First and foremost I found that in any situation I must first be willing to give of myself, I can not live in any instant as if I have nothing to give I found that the greatest gift of all I have been given was My voice. I can at all times stand on the truth and I can make others aware of those things which I find to be true for me. In doing that I have often Found People often wish To confuse fact and Opinion for instance it is My opinion that The homeless services agencies and org’s are failing, That Is My opinion! I arrived at that opinion by researching the Money that is spent on the homeless problem,and Finding that the greatest percentage of this funding is spent on administrative fee’s and advertising, while community development Grants are wasted on programs that only contribute to the endless supply of Homeless individuals themselves by temporarily housing them and there by insuring when the next grant allocation period rolls around the need is still there! This is Fact !  And one that Has been so For 2 decades. So while often as of Late I have been silent on the facts I am still here and not at a loss for words I have simply put been getting my second wind, and will continue to expose Organizations Like Common Grounds, Path Partners, 100Khomes Path achieve , Ascencia,Union Gospel Missions, Salvation Army, and any other Org that Lives their lives for the Furtherance of their organization at the cost of the Homeless themselves. Because this is not opinion this is Fact!
So you see You have not silenced Me you have only strengthened My resolve To expose you for the Frauds and profiteers of Homelessness that you are see because with out you we could address the problem of Homelessness being a problem, of Basic Human Rights and not have you cloud the issue by maintaining a hard line that says A supportive Housing Model that hasn’t worked in decades is still the Best, your failure has oppressed us the Homeless and Formerly Homeless to the point of us Taking action And social Media And peoples vexation of their Spirit because of an ongoing problem.will Only Further Us In our cause, Because everyone is tired of Organizations that are helping us into our Graves.
If You too are not without a loss There is a comment section Below this Post!! Much Love. And Know That there are Organizations and Homeless Helpers I do very Much Support In general They aren’t publicly Funded But rather Are driven By Their Love and Compassion and supported By individuals who are Like Minded! They are people who are the Ones who Just Get It. Do You ?

Like It Or Not I am Still Joseph2Dogs

After writing this Post I am Sure there are those that will say, Damn he’s at it again Some will Bully you go Joseph some will say cant we all just get along, whatever it drives you to say feel free to say it I the comments section if Just to remind yourself one way or the other that you have taken a stand.
I started This Blog approximately  14 month’s ago and I told people of My failure as a man not being a good father a good husband a good church member or a good member of society as far as that Goes. after that time I for some month’s went on to plead with people to think about what we are doing and to stand with me looking for a alternative solution because what we have been faced with is not working and has not worked for over 2 decades. I found some people believed what I was telling them and some that thought me to be utterly insane, The Jury is still out on that point!
What I can now tell you is this I was after being ridiculed and ostracized for over 9month’s I was criticized to the point of near silence by people who in the effort to silence the truth were adamant in that I daily received accusations of being full of Hate and vitriol, my near silence came from my Knowledge that nothing could be farther from the truth and it was my inability to convey The message that was making people feel this way towards Me.
For being a man that In the simplest way try's to share with you the truth of what people with a heart to overcome homelessness in their lives or the Lives of others a faced with, I in essence had merely chalked up to My life another failure.
I have watched as Common Ground with Ms Roseanne Hagerty  over the last 2 decades. and through Their Numerous endeavors,acting as a guide post for pathways to housing, Path achieve, Path, Path partners,project restart and numerous other brainchildren of the housing first model long term supportive housing, where utter failures, and people lent to them there support out of there desire to help, often singing there praises along the way and all of the money allocated for the battle against homelessness was absorbed and vanished into the ether as it were, the last year many have been consumed in the efforts to house 100thousand most at risk individuals through 100k homes. while the path organizations around the country change their names because people through hearing of their activities have began to question there motives and ask are you profiting from homelessness, some now have new fresh names like Ascencia all the while doing what they do best Paying themselves to refer people to people who will in turn refer them to other people, after counting them and paying themselves. It sucks to hear I know, But I refer you now to the top of this page and the quote By Lao Tzu, Because I really want you to hear this!~ we are now 18 months into a 100k homes campaign these peoples(Common Grounds)brain child being adopted around this country and overly funded by you the American tax payer and house 100k homeless Americans  it is another utter failure after 18months it has housed only 10300+ at risk Americans and of those Housed only 83percent remain so. after 18months this is failure people but of course I told you a year ago this would happen but hey I am Only Joseph2dogs a Man more aware of the truth than people would have you believe!
My problem is I am not afraid to talk about it or to tell you all, Hell no we cant all just get along there actions directly result in people dying on the streets.and They do it because people believe they are just trying to help!
and that is a lie, because in the last year I have meet people and come to love people and became friends with people who are just trying to help and they are not these organizations!
