fisking time

Pouty Boy strikes back. Got-dam! I'll bet he's won many a fistfight in HIS life. His mama breast-fed him far too long.

Intolerant, Pig-Headed Rednecks

(I believe that he's speaking of ME here, but he NEVER hurls blind insults. Only "intolerant, pigheaded rednecks" do such things. Irony is lost on such clueless people.)

The Jerk is back with his ignoble calumny and crude boorish followers. My email is full of profane nonsense about how the homeless are all slackers whose only problem is an unwillingness to get a job--as if there were so many available and those that are paid a living wage.

Do you know how you earn a "living wage," turdball? You EARN IT! What is so difficult for people such as you to understand about that fact? That guy on your blog with the "WILL WORK FOR FOOD" sign deserves a "living wage" when he won't work? Fuck you AND HIM.

The fact that an estimated one million children are homeless seems not to enter in to the pinheads' understanding of the issue. To wit:

You have no fucking wit. The barefooted dickhead with the footprints in the sand (isn't that an etherial view of a faggot, no-brained asswit's MAN'S character), has ugly feet. He also has an ugly brain. If an original thought ever appeared there, it would die of loneliness.

The curious bit about this attack on me is that all I did was post a quote from The Homeless Guy. I made no claims, offered no opinion, made no assertions. Yet, these selfish, immature knee-jerk libertarian rednecks attack me!

No, asshole. THAT IS NOT WHAT YOU DID. You called me a jerk and a member of the "tinfoil hat brigade." Don't play that innocent, whiny liberal, victim shit on me, fuckface. GO READ YOUR OWN GODDAM BLOG. You wrote it, but that's not what you MEANT? Bite my Cracker ass.

I thought, and still do, that giving a care package to a homeless person is a nice thing to do. So shoot me.

No. That would be a waste of a perfectly good bullet. I would much rather clean your naive ass out at a poker table. You wouldn't know a bluff from a power-bet, you dumbass. I could have a field day with you.

What do you do for a living? Campaign for Howard Dean? You sound exactly like the nut-logs who support him. If Quinton grows up to be like you, I swear that I will strangle my own son and then shoot myself, because I have failed as a parent.

You keep your footprints in the sand and your pin-head up your ass. You'll go far in life, butt-boy. There are more people out in the world waiting to fuck you than you can shake your candy ass at. Know what? You won't even have to shake your candy ass.

The predators will find you.


Will work for money.

I once saw a man with that particular sign. He was a regular at that corner. A friend worked at a store across the way and said at least 2 cars stopped and gave him something every time the light changed. By his estimate if heonly got a dollar from each car, for the amount of time he stayed, he made about $200.00.

When I saw him that day he was standing in front of one of our local McDonalds with his little sign and in the background was another little sign taped to the front door of the McDonald's. "Now Hiring".............

Well, if he was able to extract money from suckers without force or fraud, he was working very efficiently for his money, and self-employed, to boot. Not near as bad as the "Psychic Friends Network" late-nite TV commercials.

All those people needed to say to him was:
1.What work?
2.How much money?

If they didn't like his answer they were free to tell him where to go and just leave.

I think that most people know that the beggars are a scam. I think that most people just give beggars money to make themselves feel good.

Yeah, Andrea, but thinking people, even some liberals, say that it is NEVER a good idea to give these people money. In almost no case will their excuse of need be verifiable, and in most cases, they are simply buying dope or alcohol with the money.

The "correct" idea, if you want to waste your time, is to have some references for churches or helping organizations with you, and pass out a little piece of paper with this information on it.

Even Rob, who actually offered work in return for food, is not correct here. If the "homeless" person had taken him up on the offer, Rob would have been at risk from a bogus claim for personal injury while working, or from being reported to the authorities for not properly paying a wage and collecting the witholdings, etc.

It just doesn't pay to deal at all with these folks, but if you insist, find a good charity that DOES deal with them and donate money or time to that charity.

"The Jerk is back with his ignoble calumny and crude boorish followers."

Okay, everybody, raise your hands if you're a boor.....gotta get a count here.

Personally, I am a churl and engage in churlish behavior. (Write that down, 1 churl). Oh, by the way, churls aren't followers. Those of us that are churls don't really care enough 'bout somebody else's opinion to curry it. That's more of a lefty thing, I believe.

Ignoble calumny? Who are the wiseasses into ignoble calumny? Churls are into decadent debauchery. Maybe occasionally some bondage. Churls, you KNOW who you are.

Okay, now who are the louts? Are you the ignoble calumny group? If the louts are into ignoble calumny, what are the boors doing?

Insomnia due to overdose of cold medications is an ugly thing, ain't it?

The fact that an estimated one million children are homeless seems not to enter in to the pinheads' understanding of the issue.

The last time that I checked there were almost 280 Million people in the US. According to the 2000 US census there are 80 million people in the US under the age of 19. So that means, according to this shitheel's numbers, that for every 80 children in the US there is one homeless child.

Sorry, not buying it. Its amazing how some activists will shamelessly come up with unbelievable numbers and even more unbelievable how many people will believe it unquestioningly.

I'm also amazed how the homeless problem seems to come up when there are Republican presidents but the activists seem more low key when there is a Democrat in Office.

I've seen "homeless" guys hang their signs on a tree and walk over to their vehicles, take off their nasty jackets and shirts and drive away. I've seen "homeless" people refuse to come to the Mission in town because it requires them to work and avoid alcohol and drugs. Sorry, there are unfortunates, but the majority are either mentally ill, addicts or too lazy to work.

i've seen future 'homeless' ppl in the making. 18 to 20something year olds polishing themselves for a career in 'hand out's' and 'help mes'. we all go through rough times in our lifes and thanks to the goodness in ppl we overcome the bad times, but there are those that chose such a life. their choice. nothing more wasted then a person who decideds to become a loser and perfects it.
(long time reader,rob, the comments in me are starting to boil up so am going to have to start writing them or explode.)

This guy also resorts to the always compelling "they have small dicks" argument.

"18 to 20something year olds polishing themselves for a career in 'hand out's' and 'help mes'."

Deborah, it starts younger than that! Remember when kids used to sell candy, sell candles, or wash cars for money for their school projects? Now, they just stand in front of the grocery store asking for handouts for their basketball team, their scout troop (WTF?), or their gymnast team trip to Dog Breath, AR. I always look for the adult in charge and give them a piece of my mind. What the hell are they teaching these kids? That if you don't have the money to do the fun things you want to do, it's okay to ask strangers for it?

Mr. Heart of Gold Hopkins (, who runs that blog, just sent me the following email, presumably as punishment for defying his eminency (without profanity or personal insults, mind you):

"Are you an imbecile or do you just play one on the

I've got mold growing behind my fridge smarter and
more interesting than you.

If you can't run with the big dogs, stay on the porch.

have a nice day ;-)"

He plays with kitchen mold, but I'M the imbecile. Okay. He is a Big Dog, I believe him.

Anyway, I hear Dog Breath, AR is delightful this time of year.

Euw. That was a romp through somebody's feelings. I feel all dirty now.

I dunno. I always give money to homeless people.

But only if they promise to spend it on crack or cheap wine.

I figure we might as well be honest about the transaction, right?

You've given me an idea though. I may make them promise to not bathe for the next six months, defecate in their clothes, shout profanities at my wife as she walks by on her way to work, refuse to take their meds (which the city provides free of charge); and refuse to seek help from the dozens of local shelters.

Again, nothin' wrong with a bit of honesty, right?

the "real" homeless are the guys with families staying in a shelter, scraping together whatever bread money he can EARN during the day. He doesn't stand on a corner with a sign saying "will work for food," he takes (regretfully) the place to stay and takes whatever toliet cleaning job he can get his hand on and tries like hell to get out of the shitty situation life has dealt him...... The "real" homeless guy still has pride and doesn't beg for money to spend on cheap wine and crack.... he makes a go of it.

Go visit your local homeless shelter..... you can tell the "real" homeless guys from the addicts, mental patients and drunks. It's the guy who after supper, doesn't run out into the street to "score".... he heads out to his third job to scrape together enough for an apartment.

Fuck the asshole who says we have a "homeless" problem.... What we really have is a problem with bleeding heart assholes who believe the "will work for food" bullshit.

The guy I described above deserves a shot... because he's willing to EARN it. The wino on the street deserves contempt because he lives in America, where it's there for the gettin', if you're willing to go get it.

The drug addict and wino on the street isn't worth my charity. The guy I described above is welcome at my table and in my home.
