I feel inclined to throw my two cents worth in. I gave a guy twenty bucks one time. He said his car broke down and he needed to get gas and see his mother in the hospital. I knew he was lying but I gave him the money anyway. He walked the opposite direction of which he said he came from, after I gave him the money. At that point I knew the guy was a crackhead and was lying about even owning a car. I used to give this one homeless guy change just to leave me alone but he was a little retarded so I didn't mind. Crackheads always bug me for money. I joined the army to make my own way through life. I know with the recent lowering of standards in the Army, many homeless people could make ends meet by joining up but.... They are either druggies, messed up in the head, retarded, lazy, and some of them might just be unlucky. I myself would become a drug dealer or thief before I was kicked out on my ass onto the streets. I have no sympathy for lazy, stupid fucks that can't support themselves. Unless they are mentally unstable or retarded there is very little excuse. Their are a large amount of jobs that a homeless person could get if they weren't so fucking lame.
