    Yeah, but he was Shooting shit into his arm. Last i heard he crashed his shitty mini van into a tree and went back to jail.

    Funny thing is he was a great worker when was high.

    The fact that you're allowed to repeatedly make new threads makes me hate freedom of speech.

    I know a few, and do what I can for them.....there is one family that pisses me off sometimes, though, because I'll try to do something generous, and they almost always start begging me to up the ante......

    I live in a predominantly black neighborhood and there's two men who live in a neighbors detached garage. They shit in buckets and use a wool blanket as a door.

    Close enough?

    Do I help them? No. They are druggies. If I helped them, they'd be on my porch begging for handouts at 1 am like they do to the dumbass guilt-ridden whites who followed me to the neighborhood.

    Yeah, I live close enough to Chriza to help him out, I'd take him with me to do something manly, like go to the gun range and then get a cheeseburger at the nudie bar, but he's too busy getting laid to hang out. Since he gets laid more than I do though, my pity for him wanes a bit.

    Got someone's husband (unemployed veteran) a job. He was able to work for several months but he ended up getting fired. Oh well.

    I have a few close friends that have fallen on hard times. I have sent money, during the holidays, for their children's Christmas' and Birthdays? It was the least I could do.
