Frankly I think advances in technology have more to do with unemployment than over-population. It's getting to the point where you don't even need a girl on the checkout to scan your groceries for you.

If you read the paper in most cities especially large cities, there are a lot of jobs available. Some people don't want to work and live off the gov or they want a job that starts out at three times the minimum wage. Hey, you got to start some where. Your not that good. Some people want everything to be handed to them. There just too lazy to go out and work. There all not like that though but those who are, runin it for those who want ot work.

Hand in hand.

Umm no..look at the Asian countries. Many are overpopulated but the unemployment rate isn't sky rocketing.

Depends on how the country deals with all it's people. Mexico is overpopulated and they have a bad unemployment problem. Some parts of California are overpopulated and they have a really bad homeless problem, I noticed. There's a lot of people in Canada, and they *don't* seem to have an unemployment problem. At least, I don't *think* Canada has an unemployment problem....

Parts of Europe have high unemployment and their populations are shrinking. It has more to do with socialism than population. If all the world were capitalist there wouldn't be much of an unemployment problem.

I think unemployment in 3rd world countries is due to corrupt gvt. practices.

Most of the homeless people don't try very hard to get a job.

to a point thats true but not always
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 6/8/05 - 11:51:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
Some people are just lazy, but sometimes they really can't get a job. I'm really undecisive, aren't I?

Nope. Small country towns can have a high percentage of unemployment too. Infact, there are far more job opportunities in the cities or places with a built up population than there is in the rural areas.

Most of the homeless in this country suffer from severe mental health problems. they were forced out of the hospitals beginning in the early 90's(by stupid liberal people with good intentions that got laws passed)and into the communities. Our long term mental hopitals are empty and now the nuts are sleeping on the park benches. Sounds like typical liberal compassion to me! As for overpopulation, IT IS A MYTH!

Maybe, but I would think that because there's so many people, there would be jobs for people to help solve the problem of overpopulation by cleaning up cities or overseeing transportation.

Reagan closed most of the mental health facilities in California when he was govener here.

He's not known for being a liberal.

I think your evaluation of why there are so many homeless people with mental health issues is way off. It is in large part because there are so few openings in mental health facilities - but it is not because of the liberals.
