    Homeless don’t want to change their plight

    Jeers to Councilman Bill Crisp and others who think that they can actually do something about the homeless problem.

    These people live on the streets and under bridges because they don’t want to work and have a home. Why do you think they don’t live in the country or under a bridge on Interstate 95? The reason they don’t is there is no one to beg from, no one to steal from, no free meals and no free blankets courtesy of Fayetteville tax-payers. They offer nothing to our society but higher taxes and higher insurance premiums. You’ve seen signs like “don’t feed the bears”; we should have signs that say “don’t feed the bums.”

    The few homeless I’ve met in Fayetteville were, to put it crudely, a few tacos short of a full platter. They probably couldn’t work anyway. They end up on the streets just because they aren’t lucky enough to have relatives to get them the care they need.

    Aren’t they part of the Big Plan, as props or extras or whatever? Maybe they have to be near us so we can practice our virtues on them. . .

    Not everybody can run to a strong finish in the rat race. When I was a kid I believed my mother when she told me God made everybody, everybody, with a heart and a soul, equally, and that every person had inherent value. Anybody want to tell me the old lady was wrong?
