“Of course everyone thinks they know what they're talking about. The ego tells us so. But when it comes to what an entire group of people (no matter the group) thinks or cares about you simply can't know. You can make broad sweeping assumptions like you've done here already and claim to know what you're talking about but the reality is you really don't know.”
“Wow, you guys are good. Suzie knows what "the right" cares about and apparently you surmize from a 3 line post that I"m a Republican. Certainly you can assume that but you certainly can't know it. Don't be so brash.”
Have you spent time w/ homeless people? My late father-in-law owned and operated a warehouse business w/ his son and daughter for the entire 25+ years that I knew him.
The business is located in an industrial area and has many homeless in the area, many of whom approached him countless times asking for "a few bucks". He'd stop what he was doing (work), wipe the sweat from his brow and instead of handing them cash he'd offer them a task of some sort in exchange for pay. Without fail he was never taken up on his offer. They could have done the work for the cash but chose not to. Nobody's fault. Just a choice.
Most are homeless because they want to be. No amount of money will ever change it...”

“Most are homeless because they want to be? You make Forrest Gump look like Einstein.”
“Oh they'll have use of the money alright. Do you know how many cases of Nati Light you can buy w/ $400,000?
God bless 'em but most homeless don't want a home or all of the hassle that come w/ it. They just want to hang out and drink. Like I said...God bless 'em but that's the way it is...
Trust me...I'd like to hang out and drink all day too but if I also want a home, I have to choose. I picked home so the drinking is relegated to nights and weekends.”
“Why paint w/ such a broad brush Suzie? It's obvious where you're coming from but it seems you really don't know what you're talking about when you assume to know what "the right" cares about...”

“I certainly know what I'm talking about, how about you. I am a liberal & very proud of it. 90% of right wingers I have known through the years are worried about one and only one....themselves & their bank accounts.”

“we don't assume...we know we hear them on Fox and elsewhere...we hear their candidates too..if you don't agree - then don't be a republican...”
“Well written story but lame commentary on your part AFW. Have you not seen or anticipated the multitude of readers who have come thru w/ the same "nail on the head" line? I'm sure this is beneath you so please up your game and let's get on w/ it for next time.”

“Hey that's great that you've taken it upon yourself to be the comments police.
I agree it wasn't original but I don't go trolling through other's comments to make sure mine is original. Maybe you do, but then that makes you unoriginal too, doesn't it. db.”
