Not to mention picnic baskets!

Besides, even if it does get homeless off the street, it completely ignores the cause behind the homelessness problrm.

Not to mention that wolves wouldn't know the difference between homeless and not-homeless.

Well condoms don't work by preventing you from having sex, but by preventing some of the consequences. Wolves are society's condom.

In this metaphor, homelessness is presumably merely one possible STD resulting from relations with capitalism. Preventing transmission is an important part of a stable, healthy relationship. But instead of using a stronger safety net, this politician is arguing for an all-natural solution: wolves.

Hmm. Maybe wolves are more like anti-viral medication or an antibiotic. I need to think this through.

Well I'd like to see your plan to solve homelessness.

This sounds like you're seriously considering the "wolf solution" to homelessness.

You don't need a 100% surefire solution to a problem to know that a suggested solution isn't realistic.

e.g. "Have a termite problem? flood your home with magma. termites gone." That's pretty much equivalent to suggesting that the homeless get eaten by wolves.

Or maybe you're suggesting that the lazy homeless would get a house if there was a threat to their life. I'm sure being homeless in winter in Alaska is a walk in the park and we need to construct some sort of death traps or perhaps license gangs of thugs to go beat a few of them up, then the rest of the homeless would get the message and stop being so goddamn homeless all the time, ruining the view.

The only thing worse then being talked about is not being talked about.

Seriously though, I dont exactly go around expressing radical political views outside a very esoteric subset of economic policy
