“I agree - it's just a cruel amusement for a hundred bucks that might, what, buy you a dinner in SF? It is a short sighted strategy for temporary ease of the suffering without much thought to the long term displacement and homelessness.”

“Gee, everyone is such a critic. What are YOU doing to help the homeless?
He is making someone's day (lots of someone's day actually) by paying it forward. How the HELL can you all fault that.

“Why is it so horrible to give happiness to strangers? Why must this anonymous Good Samaritan be taken to task simply because he isn't giving the way other people think he should? Since he is anonymous, we don't know what other good works he might be doing in addition to this. Let's celebrate when someone is doing good for a change!”

“He is helping and having fun at the same time . If you were to stumble upon such a find you would take the money. He is getting a kick out of this , all legally..”

“And yet, here we all are considering -- if even for just a moment -- an aspect of social injustice that we might otherwise not have considered today.”

“I disagree. A poor person wouldn't squander that hundred on a dinner (you're still thinking like a rich person). A hundred dollars will buy quite a bit of food at the right markets, or clothes at the goodwill.”
“Actually, no. No we don't. Tough gun laws would be found in Australia or the U.K. The places where they have NO mass murders. Now, that's tough and good guns laws.”

“Well that is never going to happen in any state because of the 2nd Amendment.”

“The UK had 100k stabbings last year (as well as 7k firearm related incidents), you have no right of self defence. Australia has something like 200k illegal guns (they also have a rise in firearm related incidents), mass murders are committed by arson rather than firearms, oh and your more likely to be raped in Australia than the US.....”
“Nope. WE DO NOT have tough gun laws. This is a lie. I live here - I know.”

“Compared to the rest of the US, CA has VERY tough gun laws. If you don't think so, perhaps you should consider moving?”

“We have VERY tough gun laws. You can't buy a gun at a gun show without a 10 day wait and background check. You can't buy a gun from a friend without a 10 day wait and background check. You can't buy a gun from a dealer without a 10 day wait and background check. You can't have a rifle with an (easily) removable magazine. You can't have magazines that hold more than 10 rounds. You can't open carry a gun. You can't get a CCW permit in any urban county. You have to register each gun you own both long arms and pistols.
There is no tougher set of laws in the country that are going to pass constitutional muster.”

“Actually California has some of the toughest gun laws in the nation, yet they still don't keep firearms from the hands of criminals.
According to the Brady Campaign, "California continues to blaze legislative trails in saving lives, rising to a high of 81 points on the 2011 Brady State Scorecard rankings of state gun laws. California’s universal background check system, retention of purchase records, limiting handgun purchases to one a month, and an assault clip ban are just some of the laws that provide a road map to preventing gun violence."
The Brady Campaign also reports "Opposite California are Arizona, Alaska, and Utah with 0 points each."
For some reason the criminals keep getting guns, and California also leads the nation in homicides and firearm homicides, while Alaska and Utah have the fewest.”

“Sigh. The IRS investigated many so-called nonprofits who claimed to be tax exempt. My husband's PTG was questioned. It is bec SO MANY arose under false pretenses of being non political but were and were backed by billionaires with a political agenda. I wish folks would do their research before making a soundbite.”
“What??? Who paid you to make this nonsense comment?”

“Really? It's nonsense to expect Mr. Obama to treat the families of Oak Creek with equal compassion? Especially given the effect that the care and kindness of the President made to those grieving parents and siblings in Connecticut?”
