I saw 1 goober at Brent & Davis by Checkers, dude about 35ish with dawg. He had a newer iPod than me, and a iphone4 on his belt, his shirt had rode up, I rolled the window down and said "nice phone" he just smiled and waved. It's BS! They need to be run off! Give nothing!

o yea and the thing that gets me the most is on 9mile and palafox there is a well beaten path in the middle there and it looks horriable .. i see that as distruction of public property, our taxes were spent to make that spot and plant grass and cut that grass when its needed and they trample all over it destroying out towns

a few days ago, i had one hit me up for money in a fast food parking lot. i asked him "what are you going to buy with it?" and he said "food". so i said ok, i got some work i need done around my shop (right across the street) and if he wanted food he could come over and do the work and i would feed him as much as he wanted. i even offered to buy him some food and a drink before he got started but instead of taking the offer, he walked away cussing.

Before giving to the Red Cross...rethink Salvation Army.

That's like ones who have a sign that says, "Will Work for Food". I tell them come on, I'll pay you for a days work.
But they ALL say, "Oh No man, can you just give me some money?" !!!!!
I know some of them are truely needy, but How do you know for sure which ones are?
I know what it's like going a day or two without eating, and it's not good. I truely feel for some of these folks, but it's the Drunkards and Sorry SOB's that keep me from helping them. Unless they take my offer for a days work. Which has NEVER been accepted.

There's a man that sits in a wheelchair outside of the liquor store across the street from me. He relies on people feeling sorry for him and I have seen several people bring booze out of the store and give it to him. Just before dark he will roll off a couple blocks sitting in his chair and then stand up and push it to wherever he lives.

Default I still remeber ...

...how it affected me when I saw the "first one"......
I was touched rather deeply... Since then , I have met many , obviously in need who merely wanted , and in almost all cases would refuse rather than accept offers of food or work...
I have also seen priests and nuns walk past people outside the Vatican, ignoring the pleas of those with no legs or other afflicictions too real to fake. I was amazed by this having been raised emphaticly in their way to do more...
Over time I realized they (the church) use their influence to raise funds from others rather than share their own wealth..(conserving capital does make sense )...
I have since come to believe that most social programs should come from the churches, which use their influence to generate giving , rather than the government which uses its' power to take and has mininimal efficiancy for oversight of this need....

Yup, there on N. Davis and Olive rd. There used to be a peglegged guy in a wheelchair, Panhandling. You'd come by some hours later, and a different guy would be in the same wheelchair w/the same sign. There's a bunch of them got a camp behind that shopping strip there.

Default true story

about 5 years ago my cousin was getting off of i-10 on to either brent or davis don`t remember wich one and gave a hobo in a wheel chair (with no legs) $10. She finished her business and got back on i-10 and drove to our shop on west 9 mile road. When she got out of her car she busted out laughing and couldn`t stop for 5 minutes or so. When she finally stopped laughing she tolds us what the guy said to her. "thankyou sweetie, this will realy help me get back on my feet" it only took her an hour to get the humor in that. Yes she is a blonde.
