Sorry for my long rant here but I will state how I feel honestly and try not to offend anyone.
You can hold up a sign and beg for money, or you can offer services to make some money.
I do not have all the answers, but I can tell you I will never hold up a sign and beg. I would go door to door and offer to pick up sticks or trash.
These people need to get out of the big city. There is nothing there for them. You can walk to another town or lace to start a new beginning.
I do not wish to sound heartless, but we live in a society that rewards work( slave labor). It is my opinion that everyone is capable of some sort of
skill. Even if it is washing dishes.
Steal(borrow) some clothes off of a clothesline and knock on some doors or churches. Someone will help you/them to a new beginning.
There is no excuse. It is just plain ls giving up, holding g a sign.
Do I think it is absurd to spend 25 grand on a piece if cake? You bet, but hat is those peoples money. No one is entitled to it but the people that
worked for it or had it handed down to them. It is a harsh reality but that is the way it is.
It is the life you make. If you make a sign vegging for food, then that is the life you live.
It is fall around leaves are everywhere. One could use a land owners rake or leaf blower and clean a yard for a few. Bucks........
Sorry, I was born poor and I have to work my as$ off for the little I got.
I used to give to the homeless when I frequented Chicago. Until you notice it is overwhelming and then I start to think how many people have it better
than me and go home after a hard days panhandling.
If that makes me an a$$, then I am sorry, the world around me made me this way. This is the system we have and it is not going to change because
everyone has bought into it and been basically brain washed from a young age to slave for the rich man.
I cannot give money to the homeless, I live month to month and I cannot miss a rent payment or I will be homeless. If you are starving I have a can of
corn and some ramen in the cabinet you are welcome to. But money, no chance in hell. My 98 neon is on empty right now with a spare tire on it because
the gf hit a curb and blew the tire. No money to purchase a new or used ire right now. So I am not well off if you get my drift.
Sorry man the world sucks.
