Listen here now.   
   
As someone pointed out below me, not 100% of income goes towards homeless people. What? 1% does?   
   
Secondly, and far more importantly, homeless people are not living the 						*******					 dream. Offer the homeless guy outside the store 50 dollar, and he'd happily take it, just as in real life. Obviously, the homeless guy would take a 						*******					 job if he was offered one. Problem is, most homeless people CAN'T GET JOBS. They are stuck in a cycle of being poor and staying poor.

Here's why:
- Only available jobs are hard-work low-pay
- ****** credit score
- Stuck in debt trap
- Mental illness (severe depression, paranoia, etc)
- Unable to get a job due to his presentation
- Little to no education
- Drug addictions
- Crippling illness

I'm not saying that we should stick hobos in NASA, but why the **** can't we at least HELP these people get back on their feet? Sometimes, the circumstances that are keeping them in that situation ARE out of their control.
In your system, people deserve to die because they aren't hard enough workers. That's essentially what you're saying here.

Yes, because every time I work, 100% of my check goes to homeless people. Spot on analogy.

This post made me rather pissed off after thinking about it for a while. Let's address the several things wrong with it, shall we?

1. Believing we should have lower taxes does not automatically make you a republican, assuming that's what this is about. There are all kinds of economic and civil differences democrats and republicans have and this girl probably sides with her parents on most of them.
2. Your income is not taxed 100%.
3. Taxes don't all go to welfare. In fact welfare represents a very small fraction of government spending.
4. You're talking to a child. $50 is like $1000 to them. They would probably have a few things to say if you forced them to give away $50 to a bum who may not even deserve to have it.
5. Welfare isn't giving money away to homeless people. It's making sure that they have enough to survive.
6. Employers typically don't hire bums. That's because they have discretion over who they hire. The labor force is so high that they can choose to hire someone who walks in with a suit and tie smelling like cologne, not someone who walks in with a dirty overcoat smelling like cheese.

Because the author of that **** doesn't want hobos in his garden.

Welcome to reality, a world full of hippocrits and assholes.

I am aware that wasn't the intended point of the story, but that what I make of it.

Whoever wrote it is an idiot and a bigot.

Typical republican nonsense.  Bad analogies. Why don't he just go pay a homeless person $50 to do the job.  I mean, if you really wanted to help, why not pick up one of those homeless guys that have signs that say "Will work for food", and have him do your landscaping.  Oh yeah, he wouldn't have anyone to sue if anything went wrong.  That's right.  He's want a licensed professional to do the job.  This is fantasy land nonsense at it's finest.  Your move Republicans...
