Close the homeless shelter in Lowndes Co and maybe most of the deadbeats will move to Atlanta. They wouldn't be deadbeats if they would get out and do some of the farm labor the mexicans are doing.

It's easy to label people deadbeats if you know nothing of them. Please become more informed about the topic and make yourself available to assist in solving the problems we face.

I do know about them, I have offered the unemployed jobs and have been turned down. I do not feel sorry for those that are hungry because they will not work. I have not offered executive positions to them, but at least they could make enough to care for themselves and their family if they lived modest without asking the gov't for assistance. I hope they will leave our area for Atlanta.

My experience with the 2 homeless people I know is they choose to be homeless because of addiction to alcohol and drugs. They do not appear to understand their addiction prevents them from working a job. So their real job is hustling people in gas stations, parking lots and their families. I have totally given up on the 2 homeless people that I know. They are on their own, not another dime from me. Also, I will not give a stranger who is homeless a dime because its all a hustle.
