    I can only hope the homeless never ruin your neighborhood and cause your best employees to leave for safer territory and customers causing your business to fail and life to be turned upside down after investing all your savings. Insensitive? BS the insensitive is those who promote homelessness in neighborhoods by contributing to them.

    I'm sincere about that.

    Absolutely.
    Liberalism—dividing up the EARNED wealth of honest, hard working and ingenious AMERICANS and giving it to the leeches who would rather waste their worthless lives living off the government teat.

    Many people not versed in national park protocol like to bring that one up, I live in a national park, the real reason you don't feed the animals is because you don't want to do what's called "habituation" which is when animals no longer have any inhibitions about approaching people and even worse, associating humans with food, especially in the case of bears which is why our entire towns garbage dumps are bear proof and communal.

    It's about protecting people and the animals, if a bear shows it has become habituated and approaches humans regularly and prescribed Parks remedies do not work to curtail the behavior, the bear is caught and terminated.

    Give a man a fish and he eats for a day.

    Teach a man to fish and he spends all of his time fishing while you take care of his old lady.

    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Aren't schools usually in residential areas and why would you want bums hassling you?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
