Never give them actual money though, it goes straight to heroin/crack (Not a joke, I am serious.) The burgers are a good idea, because the chances they will spend on the money on food is next to none.

The other day I was walking down the street and saw some kids in a nice car pull up to a homeless man who was asking for some change or what not. So i thought it was nice that the kids were going to give him some change but just as the driver reached hs hand out to hand it to him he tossed the money down a drain on the side of the road on purpose and they all just laughed and sped off... WTF is wrong with kids these days? Me i gave the man a smile made some small talk with him for a while and I gave him a bit of money but it just makes me sad to see how people treat those who are down on their luck or w/e this guy was a vietnam vet from what i learned talking to him and i imagine hes mentally unstable from the # hes seen in his life time and the unrecognized until recently PTSD. But anyways the man now has a place to stay i gave him one of my unrented houses to stay at so hes not on the street and am helping him get treatment and w/e he needs to try to help him get back on his feet if its possible if not oh well atleast he has a place to live. So lets here some views on the horrid state of our society these days.
