<quoted text> Hey numb nuts. The link you posted only proved my point! The disparity between crack cocaine & powder cocaine use to be 100 to 1 & still stands at an 18 to 1 disparity. I guess 18 to 1 is equal in your eyes, stupid! The whole premise is backward. There should be a more steep penalty for cocaine powder giving the fact you can't make crack without having the powder first. As it stands, thus country is not curing the problem, they're treating a gaping wound with a Band Aid. Another one quick to passes judgment, but has a problem thinking before talking!

Why do you say that? Give me three reasons. I'm confident those assumptions can be discredited and Bush was not the one to blame.

Here’s one of the NYC professional panhandlers that Looney Lily accuses me of stalking or kicking or whatever. Do you think he’s a Republican or a Democrat?, or he voted for Romney? Actually, maybe this is Lily’s husband and she's ALWAYS on Topix, because he commutes from FL during the week and also finds time to be one of Leonsanna’s many babies daddies.

“He’s done it 10-plus years. He can make 1,000 bucks a day” even though “he’s got 30 pairs of shoes at home,” he said.

‘Give him the boot
March 27, 2013

So it now turns out that Jeffrey Hillman, the barefoot beggar who famously received a free pair of boots from a big-hearted police officer, not only has an apartment but pockets as much as several hundred dollars a day while pretending to be homeless.

Hillman freely admitted as much to a team of Post reporters who followed him home on the subway Sunday — and then watched as he calmly counted a huge wad of bills. Not to mention that he seems to be the Imelda Marcos of the streets, with at least 30 pairs of shoes and boots.

Most New Yorkers will doubtless be disappointed to learn that the inspiring tale of a police officer’s kindness to a man in distress would have such a cynical denouement. Few, however, will be surprised. Even so, there is a moral to this story that is especially timely.

New York is a generous city, at both the individual and government level. In addition to private charity, those in need can count on a whole raft of services, from shelter to food to rent subsidies and Medicaid. Our guess is that most New Yorkers are more than willing to pay so long as their dollars go to help people truly in distress.

Hillman reminds us how easy it is to exploit generosity. His scam seems to have been directed at passers-by who take pity on a man who goes about Midtown pretending to be barefoot, poor and homeless. His example reminds us why it is important for the city to ensure that its own assistance is not exploited by those who don’t need it.

For in addition to the needy, New York also has a whole class of politicians and activists quick to denounce City Hall as cruel and heartless (and to sue) whenever it takes reasonable measures to weed out the deserving from the undeserving.

When the NYPD’s Larry DePrimo bought those now-famous boots, he represented the best of this city. People such as Jeffrey Hillman remind us that when the greedy take advantage, there’s more cynicism about giving — and less help to go around for those truly in need.

Supposedly homeless recipient of boots from NYPD cop has an apartment, after all — EDITORIAL - NYPOST.com http://www.nypost.com/p/news/opinion/editoria...

your average DemocRAT--like Looney Lily--would defend the con artist and criticize the cops.

Obama's legacy will be the end of the quality health care coverage you used to enjoy, record debt (more than Bush and ALL the previous presidents combined), most golf playing and most family vacations on separate planes because the Obama's CARE about the average citizen. LOL.

TACOMA, Wash.(AP)— A 67-year-old man accused of firing shots at homes in his northeast Tacoma neighborhood was arrested Tuesday night after an hours-long standoff with SWAT officers, authorities said.
No one were injured in the gunfire late Tuesday afternoon.
Mike McBee surrendered after being assured his two dogs would be cared for, Pierce County sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer said.
"He had his own two dogs in there and a neighbor's dog he kidnapped. That dog's back and OK," Troyer said.

Jane feels vindicated in her contempt for the homeless.
When you decide to give; give without conditions or don't give at all.
You're a sick woman Jane, sicker than sick can be.
Better watch for the homeless; your bad karma may result in one of them pushing you in front of a train.
