Because a cell phone they probably got for free with activation with a bill that's most likely under $100 a month is what's keeping them from affording a house.
Cell phone service is cheaper than a landline. I don't consider a cell a luxury anymore.
The current process is being conducted because, while all housing units are filled, the waiting list is depleted and the current group of applicants will be put on a new waiting list. There are a total of 655 housing spots available -- 200 public housing units and 455 vouchers for rent assistance in private housing. East Point currently has five housing developments, but three of them will be closed or sold.Lemish said it will likely be six months before any vacancies arise and that people could spend up to 10 years on the waiting list.
FRG is the most logical poster on this board. You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

While most of those 30,000 people are never going to enact a lifestyle change and "get their act together", if they did, where does anybody think 30,000 good jobs are going to come from? Atlanta isn't exactly booming right now. There are A LOT of good people with college degrees unemployed or marginally employed right now.
you know it was interesting today i was getting gas at the local station and a bunch of young guys about my age or a little older (I'm 23) came in. They were clearly in the construction business and were almost certainly guys with nothing more than a high school diploma. They can't be making more than 15 dollars an hour and that is probably way too high. well as i'm in line to pay for my gas each guy walks up with 2 or 3 large energy drinks, 2 gatorades that looked like some new fancy overhyped brand, and some candy bars. Each guy in front of me rung up over 10 dollars worth of stuff. Think about that. One hour of their labor eaten up after taxes for some drinks and candy bars. Oh and then i walk out to my 98 camry (i could buy another car but i'm saving up money in a car fund right now so i can pay cash in a year) and see them get into 2 very new looking pickup trucks. whatever happened to people learning to save some of their money and not spend all of their available income on things that are going to be immediately consumed (i.e. spending 10 dollars every afternoon on drinks and candy bars) and "assets" that lose most of their value within 5 years. there is no way those guys can afford the vehicles they are driving. they are indicative of our societal problems. we consume and consume with little to no savings and then we have to have the gov't or charity bail us out in our old age because we never planned for retirement (most articles i've read recently say that less than 1/2 of all Americans have more than 20k in savings)

What if the government cut off those services because it could no longer afford it (which it can't anyways)? What would these people do? Shrivel up and die? Or would their survival instinct kick in and would they do something about their situation?
Neuter them to prevent the spread of stupidity.
