GET YOUR PRIORITIES STRAIGHT!!!!
I never agree with this guy, but I sure agree with this! That's a damn fine point I must say LM.
I will say too that I agree with him here as well, to a degree.
Like another poster said, start small, and we can snowball this into and avalanche of massive proportions. Start with Mr. Prudente and the avalanche
of compassion can cover even bigger issues, such as homelessness.
As for you Sir Chip, I have my priorities straight. I'm upset about EVERYTHING! Mr. Prudente is just one more injustice to add to that list. We CAN
do something to help him and change the way things are handled in situations like this.
Homelessness is more of a touchy subject. I've been around quite a few homeless people, and alot of the people I've talked to don't want to be
attached to one place. They enjoy the freedom. They've told me that it is hard at times, but it's what works for them. Others were the opposite. So
it's a two sided coin.
As for your argument, for the homeless and starving, some are no different than what you're saying about Mr. Prudente. They made their choice, and
should be held accountable, right? Make your bed, and lay in it, right? Yet you're mad about their poor choices, and not about Mr. Prudente's
plight? I don't agree at all on that. We all make bad decisions sometimes, but does that mean we should all suffer consequences that far outweigh the
matter at hand? I don't think so. You drop a pebble in a grocery store, should you be executed in the electric chair for it? This situation is
comparable to that. He didn't water his lawn, so he's now to be incarcerated indefinitely? Is he a terrorist now? Will they be shipping him off to
Guantanamo? Water-boarding anyone? Come on Chip. See this for what it is. Pure and simple injustice.
If I had my way, no one anywhere should have to suffer any injustices. Everyone would have a home. Everyone would have food. And there would be no
elitist minded people trying to dictate to everyone how they should live their precious lives on this planet.
