True. People are only brave enough to make arguments on how wrong that person is but when it comes to doing anything they just don't care.

Side: True.

Well played, well produced material.

Agreed, well played video. I just think people in the west have been given good reason to question the homeless. There is enough opportunity here that other people's poor are killing each other to get in here, even at the severe disadvantage of not speaking the language and not having documentation... Some homeless person who speaks English and has ID can't find SOMETHING... I don't think so. It seems like our homeless are usually there because of alcoholism, or drug use, giving them money doesn't do any good. Donating to shelters and treatment programs do.

Side: True.

Excusez-moi! (Excuse me in French.) How could you say a think like that? I use to be poor, not homeless poor, but New York City, apartment poor before. That is very offending. Thought I agree you shouldn't just hand them money, and donating to shelters do help, I also have to say that handing them water or food might be a good idea. Also, when you say that, it gives me an idea that if you saw to hungry children and their mother staring, with a baby on her back that you would say that... offensive statement, and leave them alone. And that is just disgusting, if that were you, I'm sure you would feel mad and sad at that person, so just do assume that all homeless and poor people should be (insert phrase), because some actually, and I know this will shock you, HAVE HEARTS AND FEELINGS! That was really just plain rude, I can get the center of your point, but I suggest you either delete that comment or slighten the attack on the just really homeless, please, because that was really just mean, heartless, rude and very offense to others that have been poor. Just because you've never been in that situation or had someone close to you in that situation doesn't mean you can pick on others with that problem.

I totally agree

Also, when you say that, it gives me an idea that if you saw to hungry children and their mother staring, with a baby on her back that you would say that... offensive statement, and leave them alone.

I have never encountered a starving man woman or child in the United States. If I did I would certainly help.

heartless,

I'm a conservative under 30, what do you expect? I care very very little about what someone might call offensive if there is truth to what I am saying. People go through hell to get to this country because of the opportunity we have here. I have nothing against the poor as you keep saying. I have a problem with homeless people on the same block as 15 business that are hiring minimum wage jobs. Of course people may need a little help to get from homelessness to a minimum wage job. I get that, what I don't see is me giving out money on the street corner getting anyone any closer to that. Giving the same money to a shelter makes much more sense...

It is hard to give money with stories like this. I have no doubt the people who are mentally ill need help. I have no doubt that some people are just a little stuck in a bad situation. But I'm not going to give cash to someone who has a 50-50 chance of buying drugs with it.

Side: True.

I agree, fuck the poor!

Side: True.

I am a forty-year old woman living in the suburbs of Oakland, and I hate nothing more than people who have less than me. They are always wanting everything I have, and it's not my fault my father was so good at being a hooker and I inherited all of his dirty crack whore money. Once I saw a man look at my car so I arrested her for rape in the car but it was okay. He was just looking at the car and not actually doing anything, but now she got the death sentence so I am happy. All the poor people especially the white ones are all black and poor.

Side: True.
