Don’t feed the ducks or the homeless

And then people tell me that *my* ideas are removing freedoms from people. Look at this, it seems that in Orlando you can’t feed the homeless. You are expected to pass them by and ignore them. If Orlando (and the rest of US, including the full-of-homeless people San Francisco) does not want us to feed them, then they should move their asses and provide a solution for them.

While there are few homeless in Athens, Greece, in the last few years after the mass immigration of Albanians and Kurds, generally-speaking Greece does not have a homeless problem. How is it possible the rich USA can’t deal with its own shit (and yet sustain billion dollar wars) and the poor Greece can?

One of the reasons I don’t go to downtown San Francisco very often is the homeless. They break my heart.

That’s just stupid. If there is any justice in the world, it will be laughed out of the courtroom. Your society would suck too. :-)

Well it’s grammatically awkward, but WTF ? A vial of stew as evidence ? Florida is Bizzaro-land ! Let’s hope global warming will take care of our Florida problem. If not, the next idea Florida will have for the homeless is to send them to Cuba or Mexico.

So instead of helping them, you choose to ignore them? Check out Food Not Bombs SF,, if you want to make a difference instead.

Sorry, but I can’t go to San Francisco whenever I want. It is 1 hour away with the bus/train and 30 minutes away with a car but I have no California driver’s license (my european license is no good here). If it was easier to get there (public transportation is a real PITA), I would go to help, because I do have lots of free time. I have also thought of helping the Red Cross, but again, it’s 30 minutes away on the other direction (with a car, with buses is even longer). Nothing seems to be close to where I am that I can access it without a car. If only public transportation was as good as in Europe here in California…

So, what’s the problem of getting cali’ drive license – u ve been living there for years now and still u didn’t manage to get the license – sounds very odd. Also if u are so altruistic as u pretend in your blog why not to help homeless ppl in the foster city (do not tell us that there’s no such thing in your place plz, i saw plenty of them around caltrain station) or even contact some charity organizations to see if they can provide transportation to get u to the city? Sorry but helping others usually demands some efforts as well and often makes inconvenients but that is how it is…if u really feel u might help – try to do smth, not just *declaring* your wills!

> sounds very odd.

I have a phobia towards getting tests. I got my Greek driver’s license with the THIRD time because of various reasons, and so since then, I am AVOIDING tests of any kind. Even my then-40 year old mother got her license with the first try, while me, at 22 then, I failed twice. Since then, I decided I don’t want to go through the same thing again, ever.

>to help homeless ppl in the foster city

There are NO homeless in Foster City. Foster City is a rich people’s town.
