Really this is how you see what happened? Nothing went from one person to another. Nobody was forced to give anybody anything because of his ability and nobody was given it based on need.

Both wanted something and both worked together to get it. Both had ability. Both were rewarded for their ability.

Best panhandling sign I ever saw said, "Have house and job. Need beer and Harley parts."

I hope the dude made a fortune.

I'm proud of you.

I help the homeless too.

I've been there ...years and years ago and I know how it feels. To basically have nothing and no where to go.


It's a sad reality but there are good folks on the streets who just need a hand up..not necessarily a hand up.

And I don't care what a person might think... any of us could be in his spot..especially in todays economy

No. We made a deal and both came out better for it that morning. We both got what we wanted. I didn't want his life story, I wanted a cup of coffee.

It would make me wonder. everybody has a mom and dad, a home at one time. The circumstances that led him to be homeless would be enlightning.

I did not help the homeless. I helped myself. If i didn't need a cup of coffee, I would have sent him packing. Capitalism helped us both.

Capitalism....Dirt , I'd say that's a step in the right direction.
