Ontos: LasersHurt: BravadoGT: It's not Obama's fault! It's Bush's. And ATMs. And Tsunamis. Europe. Headwinds. Wall Street.

What "isn't Obama's fault," you troll?

According to Obama.... Nothing.


This might be the most pointless post ever on Fark.com.

Rashnu: I once saw two homeless guys viciously bum-fighting for the choice off-ramp spot. Very territorial, the homeless.


When you have nothing, you attach importance to anything just to give you the illusion of having something.

EnviroDude: Look at how many more unemployed and homeless ther are now compared to 3 years ago.


Ok, thanks. Looks good.

Mikey1969: bingethinker: They've been there for ten years. Why didn't you notice them before?

10 years? I first saw this pop up when I lived in Phoenix in 1990. It's when a girl I worked with ad a 'friend' whose Dad gave one some work, a nice meal and then offered to drop him off at home. Of course we all know how this ends, he ends up dropping him off at a house that would contain the one that the 'friend's dad' owned.

Definitely not a new phenomenon subby, quit with being history challenged and pay some farking attention to the world around you. There isn't even a noticeable increase between now and when I first saw them.


Interesting - there's definitely a noticeable different in Denver compared to, say, ten years ago. Especially in the suburbs. Also a noticeable change in demographics - a lot more women and a lot more young folks are panhandling here.

fta "Well, it's funny, you know? I just came back from a bus tour in Ohio. And we're now starting to get in the campaign swing. And I tell people, 'This campaign's still about hope.' If somebody asks me, it's still about change."

Correct. And with a clear understanding that Congress' #1 job is to obstruct and derail, Obama's next 4 years should be more productive.

Coelacanth: Bathia_Mapes: bingethinker: They've been there for ten years. Why didn't you notice them before?

Yep. There are some in my area who are professional panhandlers. In fact there's a married couple who have panhandling in my area for at least 7 years, maybe longer. They have even been interviewed by one of the local TV stations and claim they average $300 a week through panhandling alone.

There was this woman with a sign proclaiming that she was five months pregnant begging for change on a traffic island outside my place for ten years.


Yep. There's a guy that tends to hang mainly around my neighborhood and the downtown Eugene area. He's always got these nasty sores on his arms from years of doing IV drugs and hits people up for money, claiming he wants to go to White Bird (free-low cost clinic) to have them treated. The drugs must have affected his memory to a great extent since he'll ask someone for money, get rebuffed by them, and then ask them again less than 10 minutes later. He used to do this on Lane Transit District's downtown station, but he's been permanently banned from the property by LTD security. However, that doesn't stop him for hanging around the area bordering the transit station and the nearby library.

RowdyRough: EnviroDude: The Iconoclast: EnviroDude: Obama should solve homelessness by mandating everybody buy a house.

Yea dude, and he should solve hunger by mandating that everybody eat. What's your point?

It is funny because Obama said it first.

Maybe you havent heard of the homebuyers tax credit. Functions the exact same as a personal mandate. People who don't own houses pay a greater tax rate on their income taxes.


Who has to fix the water heater when it breaks down? Or the roof when it starts leaking? The person who pays rent?

$300 a week doesn't seem worth the effort. Maybe that's just me.


I guess I should have mentioned that's in addition to the nice size railroad pension the husband gets, plus both of them draw Social Security. During the TV news interview they also stated that they own their home free and clear.

rev. dave: Big difference between homeless people and the con-artists who ask for cash on the off ramp.


Yep. We have a couple of pros in our area who work the exit/stoplight areas of shopping places. Long, sad face. Shabby ass clothes. Today one of the panhandlers was working near a burger king. Sign said "single father of six hungry kids". The burger king sign advertised part time-full time $10.50hr. Get a farking job asshole and feed your farking kids. Why the hell would I give money away to you? Guilt? Fark off.

whidbey: Honestly, if you don't believe that Obama hasn't all but held this country together in the past 4 years while achieving some remarkable accomplishments, please. Find a pain stick or something.


The GOPs unwillingness to negotiate...EVER...has gotten so ridiculous that it's not just high-rollers in the administration of St. Ronnie that are taking note. It's why Moody's downgraded the US's credit rating and why John Roberts cast the deciding vote to confirm Obamacare's constitutionality.

Of course, when you're talking about a party who routinely refers to the past when they're talking about their 'ideal America', you can see how they'd bristle at the idea of progress and innovation.

And yes, I know that a lot of liberals think we should 'go back' to the Clinton era tax code, but that doesn't compare to the constant barrage of 'the good old days' talk from the GOP.

That's not fair. Romney support is based on fear and loathing of Obama. Nothing Romney has said or done figures into that equation. Romney could be a cast iron lawn ornament and get exactly the same amount of support.

Back when I lived in LA, I loved the guys hanging out at the on-ramps and intersections leading up to them.

They were mostly Mexican and would sell you a big bag of fruit (oranges, lemons, cherries, etc. depending on what was in season) for a few bucks and it was generally fresher and cheaper than what you could find in the stores. Also they had enough muscle to keep the panhandlers off their territory.

Having moved away years ago, does anybody know if the produce guys still exist?

Yes, Kerry was a bad candidate. Romney is every complaint Republicans had about Kerry, but worse.

He's twice the flip flopper. He's just as rich, but even more disconnected from the average person. He's got approximately half the charisma. And, oh yeah, he actually WAS a coward in 'Nam, because he used his connections to hide in France, despite protesting for the war.

But go on, keep telling us how he's better than the President who led America out of the Bush Recession.

I really don't get it. Why aren't more Americans working at places like that? This is a serious question. I'm a Republican's wet dream. I came from a dirt-poor immigrant family. I served my country. I'm college-educated. In a year, I'll have a Master's and most likely be earning six-figures, boot-strapped like a motherfarker. And I give money and food to homeless people (conservatives like to call this charity). I worked plenty of shiatty jobs, even worked at Burger King. So why aren't Americans working there? Is it the whole Tyler Durden thing? "We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars."

Hey, John Kerry was a card-carrying member of a socialist organization during the Viet Nam war. He doesn't even deny it! Kerry suckled his socialist leaders for everything from free housing and universal healthcare to free food and entertainment. Romney, on the other hand, had the bootstraps to pay for a private house keeper and laundress out of his family's pocket. Fortitude and self reliance! It's something a socialist like Kerry would never understand.

That's the point. During the 80's, the democrats were all over the homeless. Even to the point of giving them boxes and carts. Where is the left outrage? Crickets chirping. Only until Jan 2013 when Romney is sworn in.

More people are out of work. More people are on food stamps. More people are homeless. That's why there are beggars on every corner. Thanks democrats!

Yeah I have always wondered that too. I wonder if there is someone that they have to pay dues to in order to have the privilege to work that offramp or intersection. Kind of like a panhandle pimp or something.

EnviroDude: The Iconoclast: EnviroDude: Mithiwithi: EnviroDude: The Iconoclast: EnviroDude: Obama should solve homelessness by mandating everybody buy a house.

Yea dude, and he should solve hunger by mandating that everybody eat. What's your point?

It is funny because Obama said it first.

Dude, it's been over two years. You've had plenty of time to read the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Why haven't you?

I think you are missing the irony. Look at how many more unemployed and homeless ther are now compared to 3 years ago. Not to mention more on food stamps. Then you consider how democrats advocate to end homeless less and Obama's epiphany, it is funny. Well, kind of sad but this is FARK.

You should have seen the homeless during the Reagan years. What you're seeing now is the results of ordinances republican led city councils are passing that are closing down soup kitchens and prohibiting people from sleeping on park benches, etc...

That's the point. During the 80's, the democrats were all over the homeless. Even to the point of giving them boxes and carts. Where is the left outrage? Crickets chirping. Only until Jan 2013 when Romney is sworn in.

More people are out of work. More people are on food stamps. More people are homeless. That's why there are beggars on every corner. Thanks democrats!


You left out the republicans in congress who blocked everything they could.

You owe them dude...they made you what you are today,

Bontesla: FTFA: But the president said what has frustrated him most since coming to office is "not the hard work. It's not the, you know, enormity of the decisions. It's not the pace. It is that I haven't been able to change the atmosphere here in Washington to reflect the decency and common sense of ordinary people - Democrats, Republicans, and independents - who I think just want to see their leadership solve problems. And, you know, there's enough blame to go around for that."

"And do you blame yourself for that?" asked Rose.

"Well, I think there is no doubt that I underestimated the degree to which in this town politics trumps problem-solving," Mr. Obama replied.

Right there. That so perfectly summarizes the frustrations of millions. He does well to stay in-tune with American sentiment.


The man is both too cool and also too well-informed to be an American President.
