Watch for the haters to start their usual diatribe: that lazy homeless bum, begging for money and boots lives in a brownstone, blah, blah, blah, Janes on the case.
Lily, you just stooped to a new low. I simply shared a story that should make us all want to do the same kindness as that policeman.
Not the government. You and me.

OBAMA IS THE FOURTH DUBYA TERM. AMERICANS ON THE RIGHT AND LEFT ARE TOO STUPID TO REALIZE THE THIRTEENTH YEAR OF ECONOMIC FLEECING. THE AMERICA YOU BELIEVE IN NEVER EXISTED. IT WAS ALWAYS A BIG LIE THEY STARTED SELLING YOU IN KINDERGARTEN.
lol

"Streets paved in gold" they used to say---as many on distant shores, longed to migrate to see those streets....only to find they only existed in the make believe realms of the movie theaters!!

But thank Constiutionally and term limitsly, we are still fortunate to live amongst Democracy--even if the occassional commieTic must be kicked back down to reality lol.

I agree 100%. But the man apparently was not a veteran.

Many of the homeless are mentally ill, sadly enough. They need help but no one can make them get the kind of professional help they need - something most of us wouldn't mind paying for through taxes. It's part of the problem. They have to want help.

When the majority want more government, more government intrusion and taking more of people's money, we've definitely turned a corner, haven't we?

After House Republicans balked at President Obama's opening bid in the so-called fiscal cliff negotiations, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) released a statement on Thursday night urging Speaker John Boehner to make a counter offer and lay his cards on the table.

“If House Republicans consider the President’s budget a ‘new’ offer, then we await their counteroffer," Schumer said. "The ball is now in their court to state what they would do on entitlements and taxes. They have given no specifics so far.”

In 1960, to get a 15k mortgage, it often took more than one financial institution to do it, on TOP of the 20 percent down.
Of course, that's back when people still realized, paying such things as mortgages and bills, came before any and EVERYTHING else, and bankruptsies etc were big black marks on any future credit.
Worked pretty well--then came libuhrulTICS, and NOW look at this nation of unpaid DEBT-DEBT-DEBT.
Shameful.
Not in the United States doll__where were you living at the time?

You right wing stooges are so fkn interested in the bullsht you want to say on here that you don't pay any attention to what others have to say.
