To someone living on the streets, a pair of socks can be more valuable than gold.

Wow, I hope that Fitchburg residents read this article and give assistance. It is cold tonight. May God watch over these homeless citizens and give them safe shelter!

May God assist those who care for these homeless. I need to do more than I do for the less fortunate.

It was a wondersly warm night in my home. I keep it at a very comfortable 68-70 F. The homeless should stop being poor. Helping them is only going to support this lazy behavior.

But you said you were going to build a shelter? And another one for veterans? Haven't seen them yet.

That is true. And many experts state that the homeless chose to be homeless.

There was an undercover task force in Boston and they followed the homeless car window washers that are perched at the Storrow Drive stoplights.

After they were done washing car windows for the day the task force followed them to the Alewife station and what they found was astonishing.

They were dressed as homeless and acted the part holding signs but the all owned BMWs, Mercedes, Lexus, etc.

When confronted each one had $500 or more on themselves from washing car windows and stating they were homeless.

So if you come across any so called homeless wanting to wash your car window for a $1 remember they could be earning more money in a day than you do in a week.

Wow, you are so self righteous. You really haven't seen the real world! Wow! And to think that you are a firefighter or officer is alarming.

I am sure there are incidents of such fraud but to make labels like you do is just horrible.

Do you go to church? Your job is so secure that you truly believe that anyone can have such a job??

You really think that people on food stamps are lazy!

I removed snow on the long fellow bridge and all along storrow drive. One day I came across two homeless people that were huddled together under blankets near a doorway of a dpw building. They were covered in two feet of snow!!

Another time I was clearing leaves under one of the overpasses. As cars are passing at 50 miles an hr they would never notice what I seen walking. They had rows of blankets hung on rope dividing bedrooms as families were under there living.

You continue to display a blind eye to the reality. Now you seen just one homeless person under abridge with furnishings collected out of trash and you ridicule him?

There are many many more than you know of in Fitchburg. As you drive down airport road you do not notice the homeless camps inside of the woods. Yes, they have couches, tables and other things under tents and makeshift shelters.

You have become so far from reality that you label homelessness as fraud??? So, now these people are in your category as undesirables? Many are veterans of war!! And other are just completely down on their luck. Some do not have family and some do have family but will not assist them.

I had an uncle colee who was a street person. When my father seen him he would take him to our house for a meal. We were kids sitting around the table chuckling because he was pointing at the corner of the ceiling talking to miniature people.

When he past my father paid for his burial and members of our family asked why did he do that as Colee was a street person. And my father just answered that he was family!

When my other uncle passed they asked my father to continue the family tree search and my father declined as he stated to them, if I was to do the search I will discover everyone regardless if they are undesirable to them.

I have to ask you, do you go to church? Do you celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas?

You are so self centered that it is unbelievable and this is why you react to me in the way you do. You believe that I should take beatings from police and never say anything. You believe that I should allow my civil rights to be violated and never say anything.

I am the part of America that makes us great around the world not you!

Lazy behavior? God help you! Haqs the American life really spoiled you rotten like that? You take everything for granted? You look at the size of houses and car models as status instead of hobby!!!

You are the one who needs help. Continue on with your nose stuck up as we poor will take care of the homeless as we usually do! We are not materialistic.

Do you go to church? Do you even know what just came out of you? " The homeless should stop being poor."

This is beyond insensitive! I say "random acts of kindness" is the way to live. If I had a million dollars I wouldn't hang around you and your FAKE friends!

You never have to be homeless

I work on the homeless task force. I think I know what I am doing.

I was on welfare and received food stamps. Guess what? I was lazy.

Enough with the police dumbass. We heard enough of that crap out of you. You don't have to mention the police in every posting.

You were lazy doesn't mean others are lazy. You need to speak for yourself. You scored a full time job! Feel fortunate.

I'm not sure why I will bother responding to this article because it's the same article the Sentinel publishes every year around this time. Honestly I think they have just run the same story but change the dates for the last ten years. Ok good job tugging on my heart strings.

Try and make me feel guilty because Fitchburg has become a haven for the drug addicts and criminals.

If I go along with Lynch lunacy I'm not a good person because I want to save my earnings to take care of my family when I should be giving everything to those who want free stuff.

Assisting the homeless is a good cause. What the Sentinel has printed the same over the last ten yrs is there endorsments of the same five! When is this going to change when the city goes into receivership?

It is ironic that the Sentinels endorsed five city councilor at large did not go to the Senior Center meet and greet!!

For city councilor at large candidates it was Myself, Nick Carbone and Rosemary Reynolds. The three that the Sentinel didn't choose.

It is time for change!

You are correct when you say I dislike you Lynch. It's common knowledge that the people who are to lazy to make anything of themselves dislike people who have been successful. It's also common knowledge that people who have worked hard to make something for themselves and their family dislike leaches that want to take it from them.

Who do you think you're fooling? We all know you claim to the Government that you pay rent, utilities, home insurance etc. but in reality you live in your moms basement and everyone in that house is collecting some form of social services.

You and your entire family in that house are nothing but frauds and it will catch up to you.

Just some food for thought but who do you think the Government is watching more closely? An apartment across the street from you who is selling $500 a month of pot to their friends or a bottom feeding scum sucker like yourself who is ripping off the Government for $3000 a month in false claims?

p.s. Do you or anyone in your house have a free Obama phone?

You are a sick opportunist Lynch. In the past I've had to endure watching a family member endure Alzheimers disease. She had no idea who I was never mind who you are. But you go to these old age homes hoping to put a thought in their head to vote for you. These people have no idea minute to minute where they are. I had a Japanese soldier from WW2 chasing me around thinking I was her husband and my wife would always have to hold hands with a sickened lady who believed she was her daughter. You are filth and will do anything to get a vote you pig.

There is a big difference between people like you and myself. My family will go to visit in hopes to give support and hope we help someone and make them happy for the time we are there. You go to try and get votes because all you care about is yourself.

the reason why there are more homeless is because the politicians outsourced all our jobs and factories to other countries.

So, politicians decide to move businesses jobs and factories overseas? Is that your final answer?

Businesses decied where their factories and jobs are not politicians.
