This story is from March of this year.

It may still be in effect; we don’t know.

Get an EBT card, buy food then give to homeless....

How could the lieberals object to that?

Just say you are helping the Homeless who can’t get an EBT card....

Use the Spanish Language application form to get your EBT card, I hear they don’t check those, they just process them...

I think it’s funny as hell. These people have voted time and again for these losers and the more rights they get taken away the better.

Just part of the plan to keep as many as possible dependant on the government only. It’s clearly the path to political power.

Do what this thread suggests:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2957570/posts

Then give your aquired food to the nearest curch or charity...

If the Dims can give take other people’s money and give it to charity, why can’t we take from their pot and give to OUR better ran charites?

Frankly, my days of giving jackshiite to “the homeless” or any other “downtrodden” are pretty much over.

I’ll give ‘em a map to the White House, though.

Expect the homeless to vanish soon.

I don't mean from the front page, that happens whenever a (D) is in the WH, I mean vanish vanish.

They can vote every bit as much when they are dead, and the (D)s no longer need live bodies for the fig-leaf of fair elections.

Think you'll finally do something about your Jews, as we did with ours?

What... did you do?

We put them in cattle-cars and shipped them east... always east.

To the Ukraine... to the resettlement camps?

To resettle them... in the air.

Excuse me?

To turn them into smoke. [twirls finger in the air] They burned the bodies after they gassed them. They had to, so nobody would ever know.

Ever day i pack a lunch for a schizophrenic homeless old man who forages for for food in the trash cans by where i work. He does not panhandle, in fact it took a couple of tries over a few days to get him to accept the offerings.

***** “I’ll give ‘em a map to the White House, though.” *****

What an excellent idea ... Business Card size and every time a moocher asks for money hand him (or her) the card.

I think the date is wrong because other sites were saying the statist banned the food again yesterday. That’s what statists do though isn’t it, create bread lines. And speaking of lines, I live in New York city and I must say I find it very curious that we are currently have a fuel shortage. Last time we had a fuel shortage with cars lining up 2-3 hours to buy gas was when Carter was POTUS, over 32 years ago. In those 3 decades since, we’ve gone through weeks of power blackouts, mega-snow storms that shut down the city for weeks, tons of tsunami-like storms that flooded the city like this one, hurricanes, even tornadoes, terror attacks, and not ONCE did we ever have a fuel shortage....until now...exactly when this election happened. Just saying...

Bloomberg doesn’t want anyone but the government “helping” the poor. If the poor learned that rich Republicans could help them, they might stop voting for Democrats.

So, in Bloomberg’s eyes, the only viable solution is to let the homeless DIE OF STARVATION...What an IDIOT!!!

Private donations are nothing more than unwanted competition with those providing meals through government contract at exhorbitant prices. Concern for salt and fat content is a canard.

Our family donated $500 and gave blood to help NYers when 9/11 hit. Now they can go F*ck themselves - you get the government you deserve - elections have consequences.

I would do the same in that instance but I guess I couldn’t if I lived in that paradise of NYC.

In NYC I would give them a map to Gracie Mansion so they could go enmasse and panhandle Mr. Mayor in person and to his embarassment.

Of course, he wouldn’t give them the same respect he gave to the OWSers; would probably have the boys in blue run them out with tear gas and the mounted horse patrols.

If they die of starvation then he can claim he cleaned up the city.

When one of my kids was in 8th grade, she had to write some kind of report on WW2, she chose the camps. So we went to the local library (I lived in a serious backwater location) and got out every book they had on the camps. This was mid 80s, the titles I remember were Babi Yar, Anus Mundi, Sobibor, Treblinka, Dora - there were a few more. I stayed up late for many nights reading every word.

When I finished, my over riding thought was:

It WILL happen again. No doubt about it. People are much worse now then they were then.

Worse? Perhaps. I’m inclined to think no different.

I think they’re worse. Cultural rot, destruction of families and decent traditions, all over the world. Just the illegitimacy rates are enough to do it. Feral subhuamns “raised” by single sluts in all the “civilized” countries.

That actually was one of the main reasons why Arjuna did not want to fight the Kurukshetra War - the widowed women would have no protection and would become degraded and have illegitimate children, and society would thus be ruined.
