"Hey Brian, Can you imagine what the stimulus would do for homelessness?" This was a question I attempted to answer on Saturday and I need your help answering. I had to stop and think, "what would 783 Billion dollars do to prevent local homelessness and poverty?" We could possibly put together a better support structure; get some local jobs to help the local people. I could go on and on about what 783 Billion dollars could do to help the homeless. The good news is there are "talks" of a plan to pump some of this stimulus into Austin. A newspaper noted in a tongue-in-cheek story that Austin was included with an $886,000, 36-hole disc golf course in a list of possible projects for federal stimulus money. The article I read said “The project has merit because Austin has "many" disc golfers, and the city's other five courses are heavily used” Real quick, how many is "many"? How "many" homeless do local churches feed on Tuesday and Thursday mornings? How "many" homeless does Mobile Loaves and Fishes feed on a daily basis? I know exactly how "many" Shoulder the Cross feeds and provides services to every Saturday. Can you imagine the good even 10% of the proposed $886,000 would do for the local poverty? What do you think? I would love to hear your comments.
