Hooray for liberal European governments.
Hungary has banned homelessness. Given that Budapest alone has 10,000 homeless due to chronic high Euroweenie unemployment, this could raise a lot of cash.
Of course, there hasnt been much thought about how to collect it. Or how to enforce it. But people were getting tired of the homeless population, and Something Had To Be Done.
Hey, Hungariansheres a thought. Maybe vote out your government and get some leaders that know how to run things properly. Were trying it here in the US, and look to be implementing it on a bigger scale in 2012. How about a free market system and lower-than-crushing taxes that allows you to get back to work? Then homelessness goes down, and you dont have to try to collect a $600 fine from a guy that doesnt have it. This is also something we expect to try out in 2013.
Of course, since Obama was elected in 2008, the homeless in America magically disappeared. Ask any mainstream media journalist.
Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
