Want to see how government works to “help” people in need?

In Texas and Florida (and elsewhere), the government routinely persecutes groups who attempt to feed the homeless. Why? Because these groups don’t abide (or meet up) to state and local regulations regarding “food service.” Their kitchens aren’t big enough, their refrigerators hadn’t been ‘inspected,’ or they hadn’t gotten licensed for food service (all things that cost money). It seems that when it comes to being a good citizen and attempting to help your neighbor (without government involvement) is almost impossible in today’s America.

Another example of this ugly behavior from big government is rearing its head in freezing cold Illinois.

A man in suburban Chicago had begun offering his unfinished basement as a place of refuge for local homeless men who needed a place to get out of the cold, but now the government wants to shut him down and send the homeless back out into the cold.

Greg Schiller, of Elgin, said he began letting a group of homeless people sleep in his unfinished basement last month during brutally cold nights, offering them food, warm beverages and a cot to sleep on while watching movies.

“I would stay up all night with them and give them coffee and stuff and feed them,” he said, adding that no drugs or alcohol were allowed inside his residence during the evening events.

Last year, he held these sleepovers in his garage but was forced to stop after EMT’s came to help a man with a heart condition. The city did not approve of Schiller housing the men in his garage, so this year he had the idea of inviting homeless men to his home for “slumber parties.” Schiller assumed the city would not be able to do anything about him inviting people to a slumber party at his house, but Schiller assumed wrong. The government will go to great lengths to control our lives and ensure that we’re doing things in the manner that they prescribe.

The city told Schiller that his unfinished basement did not meet the required city codes for being a “sleeping area” and that if he didn’t stop the parties they would condemn his home.

Schiller said city officials and police officers came to his home with a warrant Tuesday and went into his basement. There, he said they found his ceiling height too low and windows too high and too small to be an egress.

“They shut me down and said I have 24 hours to return my basement to storage and take down – I have several cots with sleeping bags for everybody – or they’ll condemn the house.”

Imagine, condemning a home because the owner decides to help people survive a freezing cold winter night?

The city believes that these homeless people would be better off out in the cold then in Schiller’s warm basement, just like other cities believe homeless people would be better off hungry than with unregulated meals in their bellies.

It’s ridiculous, and it’s yet another example of what happens when a free people allow the government to control our lives.

Check out this example of government “helping.” A California man used his own time and money to build housing for the homeless, until the state confiscated all the homes.

  1. What’s next? Death squads like in Columbia? Giant industrial combines that drive down the road chopping up and mulching the homeless to be used as compost in vegetable farms? These people are too disgusting for words.
