winos: problem lingo

Homelessness and depression are related to poverty and economic mismanagement and has plagued societies and cultures all over the world as the free market took shape.
Because of the global nature of such suffering, colloquialized terms have been invented to refer to the poor and emotionally struggling: deadbeats, bums, hobos, wretches, and winos.
"Wino" is a particularly difficult term to accept since the world itself refers to a depressed or impoverished drunkard (i.e., he who ingests wine unwisely). Because the consumption of alcohol or mind-numbing drugs are difficult to avoid by the impoverished and the depressed, it is both convenient and embarrassing to refer to such drunkards with the term "wino."
Nevertheless the psychological nature of the depression-themed linguistic term "wino" continues to reflect socially the spiritual marketability of welfare-themed Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Drunks" (1995).
Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

The other day as I was walking into the liquor store, one of 'em said to me, buddy, can you spare a buck? I said sure, can you wait until I go hunting again?
