OMG, stop with the pity for the homeless. Last Wed I'm on the way to work after getting harassed by the homeless getting into my car which is an everyday occurence, and I'm at the Baker Street traffic light and a man unzips his pants and pees in front of God and everyone. traffic was packed. This is just deplorable

the best that likely can be done is to try to give these people good spiritual help nad shelter at least on rainy days and cold nights as the jobs are never coming back as was reported in the news.

I have no pity for these deadbeats. We now have to get people from mexico to do simple manual labor requiring no education or special skills because these people won't work. If they won't work they shouldn't have a home or any food. They chose this lifestyle, leave them alone to wallow in their chosen misery. My grandpa used to hire a person with diminished mental capacity to help them around the house. These people could work if they wanted.

A ton eh, like the one I encountered the other day that wouldn't take a job because she said it did not pay as much as her unemployment check? Get real, people want the jobs which have gone overseas and will not accept manual labor jobs. How do I know? I tried to hire some this month, and was turned down because I only offered minimum wage for starting salary.

Look in the mirror for the picture of a real anus with a fecal full mouth.

yeah, well, I don't know about all people but I'm blue eyed white and I had a manual labor lawn mowing business up north and left it to get my brother out of a mental hospital down south and I have done manual labor in my business and I just landed a job after applying in hundreds of places for minimum wage manual labor, maybe the fact that I used to work for j and j in manufacturing makes employers think that I won't be happy or something, I don't know. or they assume only illegals do manual labor, but the only way I got work is thru an association from a new church I had joined and finally convinced someone I was sincere. after 3 fucking years!

I've heard them brag about making $600 a day downtown AND seen them park their cars down the street and get their wheelchairs out of the truck. They are perfectly capable of work if they wan walk all day and stand in the sun with cups harassing people

Both you and Doug are right on about this. Others think I am so heartless when I don't feel sorry for these deadbeats, well I don't.

Why are you homeless if you have computer access? Is Somalia your native country?
