I still see the same old Shrittaffikal Junk in the newspaper. Ray Neri and Anne Linbergh who are a synergistic team that give each other some reason for existence just spew the same endless, illogic-loop nonsense. They both have been blithering about the same old stuff for years now, but strangely, nothing in the Lealman area changes. Run the flipping bums off for good! Why aren't there bums in Bellair Beach, Bellair Bluffs or Pasadena? Hmm? 1. get rid of the bums, the sex offenders can stay, they move on anyway, one way or another. 2. code enforcement - not just environmental but from the real estate encroachment side as well. Lealman residents have been using public alleys as their personal backyards now for decades for FREE. Either vacate the alleys or bulldoze them and let the public use them. 3. FAIR tax payment. Throw out this Bull Hockey homestead junk!!!! If you own a home anywhere in Florida, there should be a minimum tax every single homeowner pays! 40 percent of Lealman homeowners get away with paying the $168 garbage fee and claim their homes are worth 25K or less. What a farce. How about just $100 a month minimum tax per single family home? That would solve all of the budgetary shortfalls in Pinellas. Think fairly. Plan for the future, not just your own crummy little life, but the community's future. Come on, Recknecks, Homies, Hoopies and Old Farts, cough up the dough. 4. Do away with the save our homes cap! Tax on the highest and best use model. Tax the riff-raff outta Lealman! 5. Anyone who thinks annexation will increase their tax burden is a horse's posterior licking, peg-legged, bud light swilling BUM. Well that is enough for tonight kiddies, Old NoMercy has to watch his favorite ESPN show, they are featuring Lealman! Tune to BUMHUNTER: Adventures In Slimy Town

True, a lot of homeless are just looking for handouts.How about all the others? I was married, owned a home, had a steady job of 11 yrs, nice car,401,stocks,etc.Then came divorce,job layoff,had to sell all.Eventually ended up on the streets.Sure I worked,but at less than half of what I was used to making.I climbed back up again,but not to where I used to be.So many people today are out there with no place to go through no fault of their own.I help out when I can,but lot's of times it is really hard to distinguish those who really want a hand up versus those just looking for a free ride.Last homeless person I help absconded with my vehicle,guess I didn't distinguish too good,but that wont stop me from helping another.

Shame on you. Some people like my step-daughter can't help it. She left her abusive husband and all the shelters around here are full. She is now bouncing around from friends to friends but as of today (2 days before christmas now has no where to go). I am in no position to help her other to make phone calls to shelters to see if i can get her in. My ex is a dead beat and doesn't pay child support so I am broke and barely making ends meet. I have a 1 bedroom with my daughter and that is hard enough. Maybe if you put your high head off your shoulders and look around or put yourself in somebodies place, just maybe you would have a heart!

in a related note, teabaggers were discovered protesting the decision because they felt the land would be better used as a golf course.

The fact of the matter is you judge where you should not Kelly from FL. Many of the homeless in America are not on the streets by choice, but by circumstance-such as Katrina victims or what about how many will be displaced with these fires in CA? There are women who leave abusive relationships and have nowhere to go-no shelters or the shelters are full. You speak harshly, stating that these people should get a job-so give them one. Or a place to live, so they have an actual address to put on that job application and let them use your phone number to get called back on and how about you place money into that little bucket they are waving around and make sure it is enough for them to get a nice suit, shower, good meal-so they can go to that job interview that won't hire them because they have no address, phone number, car and now only the suit you so "kindly" donated the money to purchase. Your "insight" into what the country offers is SEVERLY blinded. It may spend $1400 billion to fund the war in Iraq, but why do still have a homesless problem here-ever wonder? Do you have to worry each month whether to pay for rent, food or get the prescriptions your kid or you needs to live on? Half of these agencies require you to have an address to start with-so what do you tell them-"I live in the park and sleep under the green bench." And when these agencies do help out, it isn't for more than one month, so what happens the next month? Homeless again and "annoying" people like you. Did you know that one of the main "agencies" that offers assistance in FL and nationwide turns down veterans when they ask for help? It is the first question on their application for assistance-Are You A Vet? If you answer yes, they then tell you that they can not help you. Perhaps that is why we have so many homeless vets, eh?
If you are so sick and tired of "these people", then take action to get them off the streets. One man is doing just that in FL. "It's That Easy" & C.S.P.C.(Community Services of Pinellas County)have since 9/11, united over 5400 homeless and displaced. But they can't do it alone-they need the support of others. You should check out their site @ http://www.myspace.com/easysvision and see how this vision could end the problem of homelessness in FL, and America. If you want change or don't like something-then take action!
I think everyone should have a home. But people who use the homeless to pay for their own rent and food who have a house and beg for money to save their own in the name of helping people is DISGUSTING. Pan handling to save your own hide to supposedly help others is dispicable.You should give up your false pretense and let everyone know the truth about what the pan handling money goes for VISIONS I doubt it A SCAM, BINGO.I hope your VISIONS get a rude awakening and anyone who believes this nonsense should have their head examined. IT IS A LIE and THE WHOLE VISION IS A SCAM to raise money to save your own hide.

I agree that everyone should have a home. Somepeople however use the homeless to help pay their own way. Having them stay at a residence to pay for the mortgage so home does not get forclosed on is one example. I am NOT an easys vision supporter. Times are tough but some people want the easy way out and have no desire to work and I sure do not want to pay my money to support a lazy bum. A friend of mine knows a guy who scams money in the name of the homeless to help pay their own way. Some money from panhandeling goes to the homeless the rest in their pocket. I think it is disgusting to take from those in need because you do not want to get a job and use anothers plite to save your own but. Everyone has it tough and for those who are truly in need I hope you get the help you need. For those who use these people to pay their way may you get your just desserts.

So sorry to hear of your plight. We're also on a fixed income. We own our home but money is tight for everything else. We used to have it fairly easy...I sure miss those days!

hey Kelly, well I would guess that you have never had the misfortune of being homeless. I have, lived in my truck for 1 1/2 yrs. no, I did not panhandle on the street I found another way to survive, as for any help, if you have no family and you have no shower, bed, phone or alarm clock or have to rely on county transportation, it doesn't work. I tried everything! I got a job, washed my self each day from a gallon water jug that I filled at the gas station, parked my truck in some hidden woods on private property so the police wouldn't mess with me, I couldn't move my vehicle because the tags were expired and I didn't have $100+ per month for insurance, so I tried to rely on public transportation, not reliable. lost my job because the bus made me late too many times. I guess I should have left an hour early everyday and sat on the corner until it was time to clock in! my bag! Not everyone on the street is there because they want to be. most are there because they cant get a job because child support enforcement came after them when they lost their job, suspended their license, took their registration, and put out a warrant for them. with all of that on your back I would love to see you find a job that will pay the child support and put a roof over your head. Many of these people are in this perdicument, and I does not help their kids any when the state enforcement makes it impossible for you to be able to work so you can pay child support. like I said, I lived out there for 1 1/2 yrs met many other homeless and the majority do not want to be there, but it is people like you that prevent any organization from being able to help these people to the extent that is needed. you cant just feed the homeless and that's all good! they need permanent shelter with a phone, address etc to be able to start to find a job and being out of work for a period of time make it even harder, and having a looming child support order makes business's not want to hire you, for fear that you will quit when they start to subtract from your pay, I know, when we finally got off the streets, I got a job first, my boyfriend owed child support, and had suspended license, the job we got the boss didn't want to hire us solely because of the child support, he figured we would quit because our income would be impacted too much to survive. but luckily it didn't due to the fact our job included living on the property with all bills paid. Honestly, I have been in Hillsborough and Pinellas for 11 years and I have never had a homeless person come up to my vehicle and knock on my window or beg me for money or bother me in any way, they only stand there with a sign and you give or you don't. I have had some that have approached me at a convienence store, and yeah I don't care for that, but those usually are the ones on drugs and needing more. if you tell the store owner they will run them off and the police will also if they see them. that's life! but don't pick on the one
s that are out there with signs on the street that never approach you, they just want a meal, a motel room, just to survive. you should try it sometime, live one week out there and try to get help, without any family help and see how far you get. only a suggestion, know what you are talking about before flapping your gums in disgust.
