news making headlines in our local paper tell of beggers making up to $700 a week.

The beggers are mostly mental health patients which our government believes are better off in the community than locked up. tghat they pose a violent risk to the general public is neither here nor there to the politicians.

Any way what with the price of gas and the cost of vehicle registration being what it is I'm off to the mall on Monday to grab myself a corner before its taken. I can see my sign now. HEMI TO FEED, NEED HELP. CAN GIVE CHANGE.

Here they give them free housing, food, cell phones and pay them to boot.

Brother, good luck with that. The sign that always amused me is "I'll work for food". Been doing it all my life...

there use to be one who hung out on rivers avd and aviation ave. his sign said will work for food. so i stopped and told him to hop in the bed of the truck and i would take him to a yard i was going to cut and rake. he told me to go to hell and that i was a son of abit for asking him to do that. 3 weeks later a news staion followed him from where he was begging to where he spent the night. turned out that he live in a 3000 sq foot house and had 4 cars. was getting welfare, food stamps, and we the people was paying for his house and electric , and water bill. then the state checked him out further and he had 4 bank accounts. then all of a sudden the subject was dropped and never read anything more about it.

"Whenever anyone preaches disunity, tries to pit one of us against the other, through class warfare, race hatred or religious intolerance, you know that person seeks to rob us of our freedom and destroy our very lives...and we know what to do about it. Working together to produce an ever greater abundance of material and spiritual values for all. That is the secret of American prosperity."
