Truly a ridiculous truth!
Makes me mad that people give so much to pan-handles effectively enabling them.
I lived in Mexico for a number of years and almost every day gave money to people on the street. But there it really is different.
He’s effectively earning $20.55 an hour begging.
There are a lot of people out there who are too lazy to work but who think the rest of society owes them a living. The difference is this guy only gets money from suckers who voluntarily give it to him. The other bums think that government should force the taxpayer to support them.
Made a cardboard sign for my car. When I see someone on the exit ramp with a sign that says “Homeless”, I show them my sign:
Let the slime go. If you're dumb enough to fall for his gig, or it makes you feel good, what's the difference?
He'd be on welfare anyway. This way we eliminate the middle men - the social welfare bureaucracy.
Just make him report his "earnings" and pay income, self employment, insurance, business and every other idiot tax that people like him have voted to impose on the rest of us.
I give to nobody on the streets. Thanks to the government I no longer give to any large charity at stores or that solicit me online or elsewhere. I give to smaller local charities where I can see the work being done and sometimes volunteer there myself.
The government is already giving my money to the likes of ACORN and PP.
I recently found myself steeping over and around groups of panhandlers. I was surprised to find no compassion in my heart.
Now I just tune out when some elitist Commie does a media stunt such as eating on $30 a week.
In a Con Game, the Grifter takes advantage of the beliefs, emotions and senses of the Mark. The Grifter relies on your compassion, greed, naïveté, fear and arrogance. A mugger sticks a gun in your face and demands your money. A mugger can face some serious jail time. He can also get shot. Con men like this guy rarely serve serious jail time. They also aren’t going to get shot. He’s taking advantage of people’s compassion. I got chewed out yesterday for being a heartless rat because I pointed out that a lot of “beggars” are just small time Grifters. I’m just advocating that people be wary.
$200 a day to panhandle??
Can I make $600 a day panhandling?
