After the Haitian earthquake, the Red Cross collected five hundred million dollars in new donations. They built six houses. The people on the street corners are amateurs.

I believe we all make mistakes but I will not validate your poor choices and/or perversions and subsidize the results your actions.

They are all over So. California, we have a bunch in Santa Clarita. Local CBS just did a story on them. Romanian "Gypsies", working in gangs.
Panhandlers Caught Driving Rental Car, Traveling Around Town To Solicit Cash « CBS Los Angeles

We have this dude all over town. "Fake accordion guy", notice the iPhone plugged into his amp. He stops "playing" to bend down and count his money but the accordion music keeps playing....



And these others with their "kids" who change in age and appearance daily...





All signage has the same bad grammar and odd penmanship.

People with "will work for food" signs are 100 times MORE honest than united way.

its too bad for the kid in the video. let her stand out there and lie/beg but don't teach the kids to do it.
a Mercedes E320 is not that expensive. there is one down the road for 2200. when mine turns 300k I will be happy to 1500 for it. still dependable though.

we met a guy in DC years ago begging. we talked to him for quite a while. we new he was a scammer. we enjoyed his personality and time,. we gave him money because we liked him.

I was hoping for some good troll ideas. Needs to be subtle enough to last, yet not get the others to come over.

I haven't been out much during normal hours to see these guys, but I'd make some time. They've been at it that I've seen a few years. They've lost a lot with the change in the white house, before, they could tell cars to avoid by political bumper stickers. Now there just aren't stickers for their candidate to sort the personally stingy from the suckers.

It wouldn't last long, but I could put on my hazard lights, get out, and ask for money to fix my broken down Jaguar.
