Seems to me like it just keeps getting easier for those who fail to work for a living. I understand that sometimes people need help, but than there are those who actually need the help and don't get it..
It must be nice to know that you'll never get fired or sick or disabled...it must be very nice, indeed.

My grandmother used to say "you, now... you haven't lived your life yet, kid".

There are thousands of Americans who worked hard and now live under a bridge.

Remember...karma is one vindictive bitch.

I got a funny story for you,

I met this guy on the street. He want to bum a cigarette. I never met him before. We got talking. He's telling me social services was forcing him to look for work. He showed me his paper work he had to fill out showing where he applied. He told me how he fools social service. This took maybe 2 minutes and I moved on.

Around 4 to 5 weeks later I saw the same guy. I asked him how he made out with social services. He replied, "They took everything away from me, my rent and food stamps." I said, "That's too bad." we were already moving on when yells back, "F@#& them I went and got a job."

I've got an even funnier story for you. There's this guy on Topix who just makes up stories. Seriously! He writes stories about events that he WISHED would happen, but never did.

Thank goodness Obamacare will cover mental health treatment.

Not my job to feed anyone other than my family.

Lazy bums should get a job...

There was a guy begging in Westgate Plaza last week with a "will work for food" sign. I told him I'd pay him $100 and feed him to chop firewood and paint my porch(the two jobs would have taken 4-5 hours... that's pretty good money) and he turned me down. They don't WANT to work... they want to play you for the fool in the hopes that you'll feel pity for them and just give them your hard earned money.

Youre a really $hitty liar, you know that? I mean, if you're gonna make up $hit, at least make it believable.

Trisha-- not made up. I had an extra hundo in my pocket, and I felt a little bad for the guy. My sympathy quickly became contempt for yet another dirtbag trying to work the system.

I still have that hundo in my pocket...

Are you really stupid enough to believe that people reading your posts would buy that you "felt sorry" for someone like that? You cant endlessly talk $hit about the homeless and unemployed, then try to make us believe that you're this warm, compassionate person....we're not as stupid as you.

I assume that Kaiser Soze and Jim in Albany are one and the same, since they've both invented pathetic little stories about encounters with street people that never occured..
Do yourself a favor..get professional help!

I think that I speak for everyone on this thread when I say that we're all really impressed that you have a hundred dollars in your pocket. Ill bet that homeless guy gets lots of men offering him $100 to "chop firewood" in July....that's a pretty clever way of asking for oral sex.

What does that have to do with picking up homeless male prostitutes?
