I Smell Organic Fertilizer
There's an odor coming from a report from The National Alliance to End Homelessness (according to The New York Times). They're claiming:
Although they make up 11 percent of the adult population, they make up 26 percent of the homeless on any given day, the National Alliance report calculated.Let's see. We have a not very believable claim that plays to stereotypes of dysfunctional vets in a field with a past history of bullbleep claims. This comes from essentially just one organization but it started a meme that's been going around the blogosphere at the speed of tachyons. This looks like an orchestrated campaign. Blog entries decrying this alleged scandal are a dime a dozen and I want to know who's supplying the dimes.
To think some people think the right wing has a well-oiled “noise machine.” I didn't even hear about the latest campaign by the right-wing noise machine until it was covered by left-wing blogs.
On the other hand, we must recall that the left was right about lead, which is associated with severe brain damage and voting for Democrats.
To make matters worse, even if it is debunked it will resurface at odd times over the next year.
Addendum: Don Surber, as an actual veteran, has more authoritative comments.
Addendum II: M. Simon has some comments on who isn't supporting veterans.
