Look, we all know that some of us are doing just fine and dandy durring this economic crisis. Some of us still have money in the bank, a three or four room house to live in (married couples with kids), job security, and much more.

Here is how I can pledge to socialism (but not Obama).

Me and wife have two kids in a 3 and one half bedroom / two bathroom house. We would possibly concider giving up one bedroom, and one bathroom, share our living room and kitchen with a SINGLE MOM with ONE KID.

Look, I can't take in a family of four... but I could make some sacrifices, and take in a unemployed mom with a child that has been hit hard by the economic crisis...

But, a written contract would have to conducted.

This single mother can live in my house if she performs certain duties, such as cleaning, cooking, helping OUR children study, and spending time searching for a job, so she can eventually get back on her feet.

drug & alcohol adictions could pose a problem...






Alright, I've written enough... I need you to finish this idea that I've started. I call it my own GIVE ACT, but it's risky because we've all been taught to never trust / or talk to strangers.

But I think you get the point... I would gladly accept a live-in-maid, help her get a job, feed her, let her have access to all the privledges I have access to in my own home, but under the stipulation that she helps me with my daily tasks.

I want to help the homeless, and I believe the homeless can help me... the only problem is TRUST.



(I just remember seeing this video durring the Katrina Crisis, of a White upper-class woman, driving her HUMMER down to New Orleans, scooping up several of these thug-looking, gangsta dressing, lower-class black dudes, and she drove them back to her house,... and then she drove to New Orleans to get more. She was called the Angel in a HUMMER. She gave them shelter and food regardless of gangsta they looked, because it was a disaster.)

This thread was inspired by this thread^^^


I just believe I have a God-Given duty to help somebody. How selfish have we become as a society if we just let these people live in tents?

Although I'm amazed at your offer I just don't think its smart for anyone on either side to take action on. I envy your trust in people and hope it doesn't come back to hurt you.

For you: I'm sure of the fact you have thought what could happen if this stranger ends up hurting your family or having friends over that you can't trust. What if they rape your wife or kids? What if they rob you blind or maybe do something in your home that goes back to you?

For them: You could end up being a really messed up person who prays on the people who are having a tough time right now. Maybe you end up turning them into some slave for your home or your abusive. Who knows what could happen.

I understand where your coming from. I'm young and have no kids and have a house with plenty of rooms and extra bathrooms that could help somebody out. I feel guilty having rooms I don't go in knowing people are living in tents but I also would never trust a stranger to live in my home just as I wouldn't trust to live in theirs. If my family or friends have problems more home is open to them but you never know what a stranger can do.

I guess its kind of sad that I think this way. I flagged your post and gave you a star as you are a better person then I.

It sucks because I know I can help somebody out there that is suffering (financially)... And I know there is somebody out there suffering that would help me beyond all my expectations (physically, spiritually, and just being a NEW FRIEND).

We have to take risks in life... and just Pray that when we feel like we are trying our best to help someone, that it doesn't become our worst mistake.

I would suggest letting a local outreach organization know of your willingness to share your home to someone who is in dire straits due to the current economic situation.

Help those around you, and as generous as you are presenting yourself, you will be helping a needy single mom and her children before you know it



Thank you.

What a gutsy, generous, kind, loving gesture you are making.

If more people were like you it would be an awesome world to live in. Many folks in my area extended their homes to Katrina victims. These times aren't a whole lot different, are they?

Hope you are starting a trend!

Starred and Flagged.

Ya, where do we all sign up?
Theres plenty of food out here on the farm.
Theres also plenty of work!!!

Plus...
it's good for ya, feels honest and you get a nice tan!
Too bad we are so untrusting, I am also.
Maybe we could put in a clause:
you commit criminal acts, you lose pieces and parts!
You know like other countries do? Screw the courts.
(That should deter a few, hee hee! shhh)

P.S. Only hard workers need apply

I think you should patent you're idea and name it "Adopt a slave". It sounds catchy right?

They are succeeding...they have put the fear of our fellow man in us. They can control us if we cannot work together. It is not each other we should fear but the ptb and the chaos they will create in the near future.

Well as the OP called it an act of socialism, I guess it is one step towards an act humanity, although the OP does come off rather greedy in his "contract".

Add: The OP has edited his "contract".

Chaos in the near future? Um, ya.
Ever since around 9/11, I'd say it all about qualifies as that.
Thanks to ATS for the cool site and all of you for your posts!
Peace be with everyone.

This is the type of reply I was looking for. Except this slave would get to watch the Super Bowl in Hi-Def, her child would get to play with my children, She would have internet access, free rent, free food, free gifts, and the list goes on.

Hell, She will also get to party with me.

I think that beats living if in a tent if she can offer her free labor to me (20-25 hours a week).

Like I said, how do you negotiate this labor?




All I'm saying is that I know there are hundreds of single moms that would do anything for this opportunity... and how do I know which people aren't in a financial hole because of there coke addicition?

It's easy to negotiate this labor.

You patent it, privatize it, and give it a name.

Except as the years go on, the company will no demand more from its GIVE ACT employees.

Five years have passed now and the employees of give act are now demanded to work a mandatory of 40 hours plus overtime with reduced pay due to the demand of new fresh employees.

(This is all assuming you are planning on privatizing on this idea.)

You Sir, are coming across as, a selfish, exploitative, manipulative, sick, evil, twisted, un human cockroach.

Well I wouldn't go far as saying "sick, evil, twisted, un human cockroach."

It does show character that you took that out of you're post though OP'er.
(oh nvm, now you added it back in)


I THINK you have a good heart in the idea... but I do also think/hope you understand how easily this could be manipulated.

quit calling it "labor" on her part and quit calling said person "live in maid" and such... .that would be a start IMO. If you are truly wanting to help someone then sure, your terms sound decent in mine, especially if you get to party


this will turn into a flame thread soon if certain things aren't revised for sure, but I do think you are onto something. I have a place, but with some help...right now.... but I don't know how long it will last. I was laid off by my job a couple weeks ago and we're having a hard time now. I am beginning to feel how some of the other folks out there are feeling, and I also feel a gratitude for your service to others.

No... I just saw One million homeless people washed up on shore... And we are all saying that it sucks to be them.

Meanwhile, I want to help just one of them with all my effort... but someone will tell me "what's the point? there are millions of them, you can't save / help them all."

And with the biggest smile on my face I can reply.... "I made a difference to that one person"

If you REALLY want to HELP one of them, then go meet some of them and try to make a friend with one of these homeless people. Go take him/her out the bar and have a couple drinks, see if they are sane or not. Then talk about letting them move in with you if they will help around the house or pay a little rent. The way you come off in you're op sounds so bureaucratic... making them sign a contract and such...

If they don't help out or pay any rent then boot him out later. Give him his tent back and say good bye.

You are not wrong to assume that people (especially the have not) are not such bad people. The less people have, the more they are awakened to the corruption and greed of the world. I believe.

Gee - your post reeks of selfish unrightousness!

First, it is NOT "charity" to demand free slave labor.

Second, there's are loads of legal boundaries you cross with this idea.

Third, there isn't a single "secure" person on earth. You might be rolling in dough today; and tomorrow it could be YOU and your family on the street. Life is unpredictable.

I could go on and on but my point is true charity begins in the heart, not in the pocketbook. If you want to help both the economy AND the unemployed ... then HIRE a maid AND a cook AND a nanny AND a tutor! Heck, bet you wanted her to be the children's chauffer too! Hire a chauffer while you're at it!

A truly charitable person would take them in with no strings attached; and make them feel a welcome part of the family. Granted, they may enforce a written contract in advance declaring the "guest" would NOT bring in visitors nor illegal substances and would not engage in illegal activities. Further, that the guest is responsible for cleaning up after herself and her child AND is expected to actively seek job opportunities on a daily basis, with the end goal of moving into her own rented premises in the near future. House rules!

Other than written house rules, a NON-SLAVEd "guest" would probably volunteer to help with YOUR chores of her own freewill.

Truth hurts! Tough!

I think that you spend too much time watching t.v

Back on top, OP you have a good heart, but beware there are those who will try to take advantage of your goodness.

I hope you are sure about this decision that you are about to put into affect.
