    They are always begging me for money at Safeway.


    Why can't they just go on Craigslist and find a job.

    Some of the funniest, wisest and most interesting people I've ever known were homeless. When I'm on my lunchbreak, I tend to hang out with them around the corner from where I work because there's never a boring conversation.

    I also always wanted to be a rail-riding hobo when I was little.
    I know a girl, she's one of a kind
    But the poor little thing, she's going out of her mind
    There's something you forgot - there's a reason why she's lost
    Cos baby she don't want to be found

    Sorry, that was Ti running rampant. I was making a clarification that the direction of the hatred is misdirected. "Hate the sin, not the sinner," etc. e.g. Actual homeless people aren't the cause of hatred, but a person's own insecurities are.


    *I would like to make a point of difference between a bum, a pan-handler, and a homeless person.

    Bum: Lives on the street and is fine with it. Able to be a panhandler. Most people dislike bums.
    Panhandler: Cops you up for money, is usually a scam.
    Homeless Person: Varies greatly. It can be a man living with his mother after losing his house to bankruptcy, it can also be a person who lives on the streets and asks for money to actually try to support himself.

    I feel pretty bad for homeless people. Most of them are mentally ill and society generally doesn't want to deal with them.

    However, they can be extremely entertaining on long train rides.

    Yes, you put it exactly right.

    I hate everyone who is poorer than I am. Wastin my rich people space, and breathing my rich people air.

    Well, I try to put myself in their position. It's extremely hard since I've never experienced being hungry for more than a day. If I was sitting there alone, in the cold, constantly in danger,with people looking down on me in both senses of the word, with no food, no water, no one to even talk to and experienced constant rejection: I'd be "dead inside" in no time.

    I wouldn't exactly be in any state to feel pity over other people's miseries.
    In response to Eck saying that they were laughing about how they could earn money from "being their friend". I'd feel even sorrier for them because they think that them acting happy is the reason we give them money! I guess the little manipulation they use makes them feel more powerful than how they really "think/feel" they are. How sad..

    I mean, if you're homeless and can't get help from anyone basically your own family abandoned you, like your "greater one"(=community, country etc..)
    That's not a nice thought, so imagine it being your everyday reality. Ouch.
    I think it's already a miracle that they are alive and haven't committed suicide.
    Sometimes I feel like I'm "on Mercury"-

    Actually, I hate that there is homeless people because it is an inefficient application of the division of labour. Those bastards could be doing something they love AND be homeless at the same time! But no, they just hang around and ask for money. Not their fault though. We need an ENTJ to scoop em all up and start a bare bones company or something....

    no no, a temp agency! Wouldn't you love to hire homeless temps? think of the money you'll save from paying below minimum wage and providing zero benefits! I bet lots of them would just work for free Cambell's soup.

    I definitely agree that society allows them to slip through the cracks. Actually, I've seen your business proposal in action. In my city there's a newspaper called Streetwise with some average-quality articles about anything current and relative, and homeless people are recruited to sell them for $1 each on the streets. They ultimately earn all the money they sell after the non-profit breaks even. It's a great business that many homeless people rely on, and many people who'd want to buy the 'zine or wish to give out money to the homeless can do it knowing that it's a good thing.
