Up for Debate: Helping homeless, despite codes

Thursday, November 29, 2012 at 12:27am

What is your take on the homeless camp at the Green Street Church of Christ? Should the church be granted a variance of some sort to allow homeless persons to camp on its lawn in the mostly industrial neighborhood? Or is it a simple case of "rules are rules" and the camp should be shut down?

Just consider dumba$$'s mentality, budlight. He can't help it. He was born in that condition.

Is this Rep. LaShawn Ford one of the notorious Tennessee Ford family members?

Family resemblance or coincidence?

By golly, gdiafante.

I agree with you on something; I don't use the VA hospital for "service", either. The only time I go in the one at M'boro is to drop off a stack of magazines they might like to read.

I took a friend to a VA hospital one day and he had to wait damn near all day to be seen. Of course that was quite a few years ago. It may be different now.

They should administer the VA benefits under Medicare and eliminate/absorb the whole separate bureaucracy surrounding it.

That's a good idea.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/29/12 at 5:31

There is a lot of bureaucracy when it comes to submitting those claims as a care provider - it's awful.

Too many jobs lost, BenDover.

We have too many people needing work. No work, no salary, no spending, broker than hell. The nation would collapse.

But then, isn't that what Barry wants, so he can takeover lock,stock and barrel free of charge?

Maybe that's what our co-posters want... Barry in charge.

Even a sub-standard moronic imbecilic conservative blind squirrel finds a nut sometimes I guess, bn.

May I offer you some sage advice, dumba$$? Don't edit anyone. Your use of the English language is pathetic.

Where did you learn it, out of the pages in your Sears-Roebuck catalog in the outhouse?

Loner,

We have something else in common ... I was in Germany in the late 1960s, as a young teenager. My father was in the Air Force. We lived in Wiesbaden for four years, from 1968 to 1972.

I'm glad you like my column. My literary website is on pace to get more than a million page views per year, so I must be doing something right.

Mike

low "option". Get some spell check lessons.

The husband and son were not unreliable. The woman was not "unreliable"; she was downright stupid. Free rent for 30 days; transportation for her husband to and from work; free food for 30 days. She's the one who tried to take over my home with her Tony Alamo cult talk. NO THANKS.

Like I said, her husband was a true gentleman and hard worker; she was the dumb broad who couldn't keep her "religion" or cult to herself.

Is it "sure" a pretty day, or is it certainly a pretty day, dumba$$?
