And yet today in town folks were cardboard begging at intersections.

My wife is the most charitable person I know and she had nothing for them today. lol

It's not just bums begging on street corners. This country is full of people looking for handouts.

Lowes, Walmart, McDonalds, Tractor Supply, and many other places around here have help wanted signs advertising for employees. Va is a blue state still accepting the Biden Bonus so the unemployed with marginal skills won't go to work. If it continues it will guarantee inflation as employeers have to offer more $ to attract the low skill workers and that will drive up the cost of all labor. When inflation goes up so will interest rates. With rising interest rates and very high lumber prices the housing boom will be over. We might be looking at a 2008 housing bubble burst all over again. If so it will be due to democrat initiated government policies again. Last time it was due to forcing banks to issue mortages to people that could not afford them. This time it will be due to inflation. Not a bright picture. I hope enough red states stop accepting the Biden Bonus to force a change in policy.

I live in a liberal city and a very conservative county. The city just spent $2M in the last 12 months to house 158 homeless peope in a Red Roof Inn. $900,000 of the $2M was for security. Go figure. The rationale was to prevent Covid from spreading through the homeless community. The program is still going.

Asheville is a tourist mecca. Tourism drives our economy. The city council put a moratorium on new hotel construction downtown because the new construction is displacing low-income housing. Problem is, nobody lives where the demolition and new construction is taking place. Low-income citizens don't live in old bank buildings and cafeterias. One construction project displaced an old one-person barbershop. The barber was about 80 years old. Such an outcry. A developer put him out of business. He sold to the developer himself and he has never had it so good in his life. He is fixed for life, and so are his kids.

Boss was in town this past Friday and we were running late to go to our usual restaurant when he comes to town so I told him we’d just run to a Zaxby’s right down the road from our work center. Pull in and drive thru only…sign outside said they can’t get any help to open the inside.
So a Hardee’s was across the street and I said shoot we'll just go there. Pull in over there and it’s the same scenario…hiring but no takers so can only open the drive thru.
If y’all would elect me President for just ONE month, I can have every person in the US working. After the first week after no more money period, people will be REAL hungry.
After a week of pardoning everyone defending their businesses and homes with lethal means, people will be even hungrier.
After another couple weeks and the electricity gets cut off along with their phones, and cable, there’ll be people begging to work for less than minimum wage.
Pretty simple really…if you don’t work, then you don’t eat!

I could care less…only racist if you’re assuming only one race isn’t working or getting all the handouts.

Actually, I have no idea how it's racist, but surly your plan would be portrayed as such.

Heartless maybe, but not racist. Hate to say I was raised that way, but I was. You shirked your chores for the day, you didn’t get supper that night, lol.

It could be 4, but I'm non-partisan. And it's true that no man is an island but I make a darn good peninsula.

Well, that statement right there is racist. "Portrayed as such" by whom?

Hate to say it, but I am agreeing with the lawyer as well. eek
It most definitely isn't just bums or welfare recipients or govt housing or any of them other programs.
We did a concrete patch in front of a business a while back. As we started for the day the owner said don't give the bum any money, he didn't need. We all looked and down the block was a rough looking fella in ragged out clothing sitting by a bicycle with rags stuffed in the tires in place of air. Guy really looked down on his luck. We watched folks stop and hand him cash for the better part of the day, then about 3pm a really nice lexis suv pulled up and he loaded his bike in the back, pulled off his rags showing some nice underclothing, and got into the car. We all got to thinking about it and he probably cleared over $100/hr of tax free cash. Some of them bums are not bums, just leaches. Kind of like LAWYERS. laugh Sorry BC, couldn't resist throwing a jab. grin

If you were ever thinking of a career change, now is the time. The pay for trained tech guys is outstanding. Father in law farms in iowa and told me local john deere will start a tech at 110k. I knew mechanics made good money, but i didnt know you could find starting jobs in 6 figures
