Well since you don't really have a method of making sure you aren't helping people who really don't need help but take advantage of 'free food' so they can spend THEIR money on drugs, alcohol or just personal things; maybe Rapking should be more picky about whom they are 'supporting.' Christians should not be 'enabling' drug activity to those 'using' your compassionate help. That is the problem with charities; they don't weed out the REAL ones needing help who are 'trying' to help themselves versus the 'users' abusers of the kindness of others.

That is why I help personally those I KNOW truly deserve it. I will NOT support and enable drug users or plain lazy people who refuse to work and help themselves. THAT is the problem. I've known a few folks who bragged about using food pantries as their weekly grocery stores & could have PAID!

@Truthseeker No, I'm not homeless, nor do I know any homeless people. I just thought I'd ask. It appears that you are an expert on the homeless.

Aww..... I detect 'jealousy' and 'envy' from the left again! lol.

Dems cry when they see 'hard workers succeed' but still refuse to work and succeed themselves. The left want what the rest of us have, yet refuse to do the W-O-R-K! (I just gave you a HINT 2cents, on how to SUCCEED and get the same things!) Stop whining; pull your bootstraps up, stand up like a real man and work, work, work. How pathetic the left have become; worse every year. They want the world, but if they could only pull themselves out of bed each day. Oh well. No hope for these lazy useless people. Stop feeding them and enabling them.

LOL. Geez; Dave is starting to sound as desperate as the DNC. Dems seeing how little support they have now after the HUGE INCREASE in insurance Obamacare has caused. LOL.

I see Dave has finally understood Obama/Dems poor support numbers receding also. You finally woke up. Reality is setting in. See how more angry and nonsensical they're getting? Yeah; they deserve it.

I work every day. Sometimes 10-14 hours a day, so don't you worry about me. I have to go to the dentist to get a day off. I haven't called off sick in over three years. I would almost bet that you are the one sittin around drawing social security. My wife and I together paid almost $10,000 just in taxes in 2013. Your welcome.

SEVERAL problems with those statements! Either it's a lie that you work all day every day or you aren't really working but fooling around on computer posting in here all day long. 2. So, are you saying YOU are the greedy wealthy couple that YOU keep badmouthing all the time? $10,000 in taxes eh?? Pfft! PLEEEASE... 3. Honest folks do NOT feel the need to give such 'details' that are private/personal. RED FLAG alert... nothing's what it appears. Game on. lololol.

You spent entirely too much time bashing us in here all day to WORK all day long 'everyday.' Yeah right.

Hey, I only brought it up because you insinuated that I was lazy. I work a 40 hr plus job. My wife works in the accounting business, and she has called off sick one time maybe since I met her 6 years ago. Trust me we're not slackers, and quite frankly I'd appreciate it if ya Git up out my bidness. But seriously, it's all good. We do well, but we work for hard for it.

Some homeless are actually talented con artists who do it as a career, some are legitimately screwed over, some are genuinely trying while others are just lazy. Some really have mental issues that nobody wants to touch. If we are going to play the party blame game perhaps we should pinpoint what each party would do in each scenario instead of ignoring reality. Don't be like Major and just throw all the homeless into one category. I just went Independent a about five months ago because both party's do that ridiculous generalization on almost everything, all the time.
