only with the few dollars that I had on me. Additionally I wrote a check to the food shelf and donated toys to several families this year. How about you?

You were the one who said your government was racist, and then tried to squirm your way out of it.

Nancy, if this is true why didn't you call the Salvation Army have them get to her for help. Or take her to the nearest shelter? Even the police would have or I should say should have responded to a call for help.

A middle aged man was with her & I hoped he was trying to help her. Not so long ago at the Price Chopper lights I spotted a man with a similar sign and gave my daughter a few dollars to hand to him. When she reached out her hand towards him; the hand he used to take the money held a large Bouie knife. My daughter still managed enough courage to place the money in his hand. Sadly, that taught me to be weary of being overly trusting. Some might think that contributing to charities by dropping a check in the mail to be less Christian than buying a stranger a cup of coffee, but being faced with concern for ones safety, that is the world we have created. I don't own a cell phone, but I did alert you to the situation using this public forum. Now what are you going to do?

I knew you are a coward. You might be a male, but you will never be a man. I hope you have a miserable life and die a painful death, but only after you watch your family die in pain.

You sound like a hysterical moron and maybe covering up some pecker-puffer tendencies....I've seen certifiable insane people with more self-control than you show....I've met a hundred loud-mouth azzholes like you in my life....and I've sent a few to the hospital...the one's that didn't run....

You've done lot's of unnecessary talking (typical) proven nothing except what you already know....you're still of loser coward...the thing I know about you guys,,,is you're the first to know how chickenshit you are.

You made a mistake. Admit it, apologize, correct it, and move on. Just because you made a mistake doesn't make someone else an ideologue. Do a better job of protecting your credibility.

Hey nosey...did you read the thread? It was an honest mistake that anyone with any intellect would have seen...Anyone familiar with fascism knows the difference....so you think this moron was cool in his childish curse that he placed on me and my family?...I don't give a f**k what your ideology is, that's just silly shit.

He didn't deny his ideology did he?

Do what I have always done. Provide food, never cash, and notified authorities of the persons plight. Quite often I have gone to help agencies and gotten someone to go to see about that person. Providing food and getting help is the best way to go. There are some out there that make a live, a decent one, by begging-I have known and seen this is my long years. I am sorry your daughter had the experience she had, not all those in need are like that. I hope you reported the incident.

No need in wasting your time. He is nothing but another internet troll that feeds on confrontation. In other words, don't feed the troll.
