Another Panhandler Story

This one from Salt Lake City, Utah

Needy or Greedy? Panhandler Seen By 2News Living In Sugar House

The story describes a young woman who makes, roughly, $50 per hour and instead of being homeless, as her sign suggests, she lives at her mother's house.

I'm a liberal so I'm all for charity. Do I give enough to charitable organizations? Nope. Should I give way more? Yup.

But, as I've said many times before (list of panhandler stories), panhandlers piss me right off.

You've been warned, people, if you give money to panhandlers you are perpetuating the problem. You are being duped. You are undoubtedly a well-meaning person but you are being taken advantage of. Oh and here's a story out of Denver, Colorado with more numbers.

Better to spend you money on hookers, at least they WORK for a living.

I've heard about people like those. That is why I stopped giving money and feeling bad about it years ago.
