Oh right, so now we've turned it into "don't murder those children...murder those children"
I completely agree… that was a pathetically immature comment for someone to make and wish to distance myself from comments such as that.
And to Muckster of course I know that living on the streets is not a good position to be in, but my point is that there are many people who with a few
lifestyle changes don't have to be, but they make a choice, drugs and alcohol, that is their choice and I don't see why I should be responsible for
their decisions, no one is responsible for mine.
Sorry, I don’t mean to be rude, but this comment makes you sound like someone who hasn’t got a clue about addiction and the complex issues that
can cause it. If only it was as simple as a “choice”!
Do you really believe someone wakes up one day and says "I think its time for a career change, maybe i'll try my luck at alcoholic homeless person"
Of course you are not responsible for others decisions… and of course no one is responsible for yours… but isn’t it nice if someone offers you a
helping hand if you do make a mistake in life or slip up?
But hey ho, I'll leave you all to your faux indignation in forum land, while I go back and live in the real world
Faux indignation? Please explain to me how you can come to this conclusion when you do not even know me? Hmmm… maybe the same way you come to your
conclussions about the homeless and people with addictions… Opinionated assumptions, with little solid backing perhaps?
And I still think that this doesn't exactly meet the "Alternative Breaking News" section, not saying it should not be discussed but it's hardly
important headline stuff.
Hardly important stuff? The leaders of our country allegedly having a past that includes taunting homeless people!! The very people that they are
supposed to be helping. I would consider that far more important than fake UFO’s on youtube, camera glitches being passed off as supernatural
entities, and imaginary monsters of the deep. But maybe our priorities in life are simply too far apart to reach an agreement on this issue.
Fair enough... we are all entitled to our opinions.
