 The first sentence of your comment is quite judgemental, you have basically said that "people like us" are scammers and liars and yet you do not know any of us, you do not know all of our circumstances and although you say "you do a lot of charity work, donating both time and money to those in need", we do not know this for sure, yet we will accept that as truth, but I do wonder, if you saw any of us on the street would you know us, doubtful, would you help us? 

If every person gave every person the benefit of the doubt it would prove that there is still faith, understanding and compassion in the world, that people still believe in the "Golden rule", and that we acknowledge that we are here to edify each other, to build each person up, to help each other to believe that we can overcome and have faith that we will.

I am not here to pass judgement on you or anyone else, I am not here looking for a handout, in fact most the requests for aide that I have read have stated that they will pay it back or are willing to work for it, and as far as helping ourselves, from what I have read, as well as know about myself, we have, at this point we are at the end of knowing what to do anymore and are looking for some direction and assistance, we are hoping that someone might know what we should do next before we become homeless.  We are not here to be ridiculed, put down or bullied.  Although you say "there have been studies conducted, research collected and confessions made that prove that many "beggars" and "homeless" people on the streets are not actually in need at all", there are many, many more that are truly in need!

You ask "How are all honest benefactors out there suppose to know the difference?", I wonder if the dishonest benefactors wonder that as well.  You say that even though you are giving money away to charities and people in need, you still care that your donations do not go to waste.  I believe that is a valid concern, I am curious what charities you give to and whether you have reviewed their financial statements and seen exactly how their contributions are divied up, ie., administrative costs, overhead, marketing, etc. as compared to the actual percentage or dollars that are used to aide those in need.

I am curious as to whether you have noticed the state of the economy, are you aware of the fact that everything is going up in price and yet if you are lucky enough to have a job at this time, your pay is not.  You say "get two, three, four jobs", first the jobs have to be there to get them, more than 63,000 people have lost their jobs just since the beginning of this year due to the state of the economy, this doesn't include all of the people that lost their jobs last year, are you aware of this?

You say "sell your van", I already did that, I had to take a $5,000.00 loss on an SUV that I had been paying on for three years, picked up a micro-mini van for $200.00, it isn't pretty but it does get me from point A to point B and it is definitely cheaper on gas, as far as taking the bus goes, some areas don't even have public transportation, some places the cost of taking the bus, having to walk a half a mile to catch the bus, spending two to three hours to wait on and take the bus, just doesn't pay off.

"Sell the house" you say, I already did that also, in the end, when all was said and done I pocketed about $2,000.00, which is okay, that was how I managed to buy the micro-mini van and rent a mobile home in an area that is far from being a decent neighborhood, after two years they finally got the roof to stop leaking, but they can't figure out why the sewer keeps backing up, yes that has been going on for two years also and I won't even get into the electrical problems or the holes in floor.  You don't want to complain to much or ruffle to many feathers because this is the cheapest place to live in the area and someone else wants in because they have lost their home in one way or another and even a leaky roof over your head is better than none.

I am educated, intelligent, have common sense and other than a few physical limitations I am more than willing and able to work but without a helping hand from my fellow man/woman I fear that I will fall short of my goal which is to not wind up homeless.  I have survived most of the last two years by my will, tenacity and Ramen Noodles.  I do agree that people need to learn to live more on the lean side than living high on the hog, but this in not neccesarily the cause of demise.  Over the last three years I have lost three jobs either due to downsizing or the company going completely out of business.

I hope and pray that all will be blessed and when they realize how blessed they are they will share their blessings regardless of where their fortune is by doing and saying all they can to build up their fellow man/woman.  For you SF, I hope and pray that you will find out the true meaning of being blessed and realize that it is not your job to pass judgement on others based on what they have written here, for those that are dishonest, liars or scammers that day will come when they pass from this life.  Bless you and all those you hold dear!

Hey ,'j12's'

What was it that you prayed for and God did not answer?  We all have prayed something that it seems like God was not answering. Sometimes it just take a long time for us to get an answer & sometimes we just do not get the answer we desired.

You sound like you are very hurt over something.  What is it my friend, that has hurt you?

ALL OF U ARE RETARDED BY PRAYING AND THINKING THAT THERE ACTUALLY IS A GOD......ARE U KIDDING ME? THERE IS NO GOD SO STOP FEELING SORRY FOR URSELF, STOP WAITING FOR GOD TO "SAVE" U, AND GET OUT AND DO SOMETHING CONSTRUCTIVE WITH UR LIFE.......JESUS NEVER EXISTED, GOD DOES NOT EXIST IN ANY REALM OR UNIVERSE SO SHUT UP!!! THE ENTIRE BIBLE IS BASED ON THE MOVEMENT OF THE STARS, NOT SOME HOLY MAN'S LIFE OF HEALING......CHRISTIANITY WAS STARTED BY THE ROMANS THAT WANTED TO CONTROL THE PEOPLE OF THAT TIME, AND IT SERVES THAT VERY SAME PURPOSE TODAY, BUT ON A MUCH LARGER SCALE...RELIGION IS JUST A CORPORATION, LIKE ANY OTHER CORPORATION TODAY, AND ALL IT WANTS IS MONEY, MONEY, MONEY.......FOR CENTURIES PEOPLE HAVE BLINDLY FOLLOWED, AND DIED FOR, RELIGION, WHEN THE WHOLE TIME IT HAS BEEN SOME MADE UP, CRACKED OUT LINE OF CRAP......SO IM SAYING TO EVERYONE THAT EVER HAS A CHANCE TO READ THIS: MAKE THE MOST OF UR TIME ON THIS PLANET BECAUSE SOON IT WILL BE OVER AND U WONT GO ANY WHERE, U JUST DIE AND THATS IT.......SO IF ANYONE LEARNS ANYTHING FROM THIS, AND IF I CAN CHANGE ONE PERSON MY JOB IS DONE, MAKE SURE U ALWAYS LIVE UR LIFE ACCORDING TO WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY, NOT WHAT PUTS U AHEAD IN LIFE....TRY TO MAKE AN IMPACT ON SOMEONE'S LIFE, BECAUSE, IN THE END, ITS THE MEMORIES THAT LIVE FOREVER IN INFAMY, NOT PEOPLE, SO MAKE THE MOST OF THE TIME U HAVE LEFT AND TRY TO HELP AS MANY PEOPLE AS U CAN REALIZE THAT THE CHURCH IS AN EVIL ENTITY AND LIFE IS FAR TOO VALUABLE TO WASTE TIME PRAYING TO SOMEONE THAT DOESNT EXIST.......

 

IM ALSO PRETTY SURE NO ONE IS GONNA TAKE TOO KINDLY TO THIS POST, OR EVEN TAKE IT SERIOUSLY, BECAUSE I MEAN CMON WAT CATHOLIC IS GONNA BELIEVE THIS STUFF, ITS JUST A TEST OF FAITH FOR THEM SO THEY DONT SEE IT AS POTENTIAL TRUTH, WHICH IS SAD......BUT I DONT CARE BECAUSE ITS ALL OF U WHO DOUBT IT NOW THAT ARE GONNA WAKE UP A CATHOLIC AT 65 YEARS OLD AND REALIZE U WASTED TIME, MONEY, AND ENERGY EMULATING SOME GUY THAT NEVER EXISTED ONLY TO LOSE 65 YEARS OF UR ALREADY TOO SHORT LIFE.....DONT MAKE THAT MISTAKE....FIGURE IT OUT BEFORE ITS TOO LATE, BECAUSE LIFE MAKES MORE SENSE ONCE U FIGURE OUT WATS GOIN ON, I PROMISE......

If everyone gave every person "like you" the benefit of the doubt, the whole world would be full of scammers and liars (more than it already is, which is currently a lot). I do a lot of charity work, donating both time and money to those in need, and I agree with you that metro74's comments were naive and unecessary. But, in his defense, you cannot assume that because that is the stance he takes that he has had everything "handed to him on a silver platter". I tend to agree with some of what he is saying (in a MUCH more civilized manner, of course) and have led a very misfortuned and trying life. But, you know what? I have come out on top by helping myself instead of asking for free handouts (sorry, but that's what they're called when you are not going to pay them back). There has been several studies conducted, research collected, and confessions made that prove that many "beggars" and "homeless" people on the streets are not actually in need at all. Sad, but true. So, how are all of the honest benefactors out there supposed to know the difference? Believe it or not, even though we are giving it away to charities and people in need, we do still care that it does not go to waste (our donations, that is). There is always another way. Get two, three, four jobs. Sell your van (take the bus). Sell your house (get an apartment). Those things are not necessities. It may not convenient or easy, but you will still be providing for your family by changing your own personal lifestyle instead of asking for strangers' free handouts. That is a far more stable way of life in the longrun and will help you to start saving again.

May God bless you and I truly hope you are one of the honest ones out there because there really are so few. I hope and pray it all works out and things start looking up for you.

 This is a free correction to your grammatical errors ; I offer my service as a metaphorical favor to cleanup your ignorant rant....

You all need a life! Get over yourselves.  Get educated; get a jobs and take care of you families.  Stop begging strangers to give you money. I bet that 85% of you spend your money on beer and stupid useless stuff.  So please grow the hell up.  You all should be ashamed of yourselves.

 in response to motro74...   You know motro74's, life isn't handed to all of us on a silver plater!!! A lot of us do have an education, a job, and WE DO TAKE CARE OF OUR FAMILIES!!!!!! I don't think you've ever been in a situation like any of us...You obviously have had everything handed to you or you wouldn't be saying this kind of crap to people that need help!! There's a lot of us, like me for instance, that will get things caught up, get my head above water then something unexpected happens and we start drowning again. I have 4 children (13, 4, 3, 1), I'm attending school full time for my bachlors degree, and my husband is the only one working right now. No matter how much he makes a week we are still under water! I'm about to lose my van, my home, and every other necessity that we have but you know what I TAKE CARE OF MY FAMILY, like most of the others on this site. It has nothing to do with growing up...it's people like you that don't give people like us the benefit of the doubt and the help that we need. If you are so well to do maybe you should "get a heart" and help someone that needs the help.

Dear motro74',

   You are the one that needs to grow up. You obviously have a lot of growing up to do to. Hello, wake up we are in the real world not some fantasy dream land where momy and daddy pay for everything, like you obviously are. I pray to God that you never have to go through anything that any of us are experiencing because you definatly would not survive. Also, I think that you need to go to the nearest church right away and ask for repentence, because your comments are not only rude, but hurtful as well. I am a single mom, and I am enrolled as a FULL-TIME STUDENT!!!!! so may be you need to rethink your philosophy of why we relly need the money. I have a 300 dollar electric bill that I don't have the money to pay, and believe it or not there are people out there that have to choose between paying bills and feeding and clothing thier families, to all of them I say God Bless you all, I know what you are going through. motro74' I will pray for you that God can soften you overly hardened heart. I believe that He can. Words cannot express how angry that your post has made me. You don't know the situation of any of these people and yet YOU have the audacity to judge us, all I want to know is how do you live with yourself being so judgemental, do you have any friends, I certainly would not want to associatte with someone that has an attitude any thing like yours. GET A HEART!!!!!!!!! and GROW UP!!!!!!!!! God bless. Have a great day.

I'm a 22 year old hard working, honest guy. I have a mortgage payment and every other bill/monthly expense that comes with it. I've never been unemployed or missed any work. I beg and plead for more work, and for over-time. All of my life I've worked and worked, from 15 years old, full time through high-school, and every free moment I get is spent working. All I do is work. All there is  -  is bills. I am not behind, but I would like for once to be able to spend atleast one moment relaxing and enjoying life instead of working my life away.  Is there any advice ?
