Re: What Is Truth?
Hi NoNukes,
Here are some people who actually understand "homeless people"
http://www.step13.org/index.php/en/
Step 13 has handed out tens of thousands of vouchers where you, as a homeless person, can come and get a free meal and work your way off the streets into a job. Last I heard they have never had a voucher turned in. They accept NO government money, so they actually do a good job with people who need help and aren't running the homeless scam.
The homeless scam:
Back in 1971 I had a friend in college Ed Chrissman, who told me what he did to get money was he went to downtown Buffalo and went up Main Street and then back down asking people for spare change so he could get something to eat. He told me he made $200 to $250 a run and this was at a time the minimum wage was $1.50 as I recall. Said he had to go into stores to change his coins for paper money as his pockets were full.
Amazing, at the time I worked and was making $5.00/hr or $40 a day, so in one day Ed could earn as much as I did in a week and pay no taxes on it.
Ed loved Thanksgiving and Christmas, as the saps like Ringo and Phat were out in full force.
Offer to take a homeless person to a restaurant and give them a good meal, they won't accept. The economics don't work, they loose their corner or sweet spot and they can make a lot more money staying there instead of killing 30 minutes or an hour with you.
Just so you know this only works in cities filled with Democrats.
And this is closer to the TRUTH than what Ringo and Phat think.

I frequently wrestle with whether my actions are helping vs. enabling.
So the "mark" has this psychological point of view.
How do we use this to get the greatest amount of work and money out of him without his knowing we are fucking him over..........so that in the end he is left with this same question.
I've seen the ways this is done, so why don't you tell us how they did it to you. Yes NoNukes, you know how they do this because it happened to you, otherwise you would not have used the word enabling.
Tell us about it.

Re: What Is Truth?
Phat,
You can piss away all your money and work, as you chose.
Just don't come to me after you pissed away a college education and money you inherited and tell me you OWN a part of my work and will get it through the government using the force of arms.
Don't bother me, just write a check to your union so those guys can keep making 6 figures a year on you.
Doing nothing, going nowhere.....the story of a union member.
And that is the truth!
