Copy and paste the link above into your browser. Read the article, a well written article, and then ask yourself. What have we become? Haves and have nots. Segregated for the sake of appearance. Ever been homeless? Ever been thrown out of your home? Ever had to eat someone else’s leftovers? Ever had to beg to survive? If you have ever had to do any of these things, then you will understand how pissed off I was when I read the article above. I’m hopeful none of the people at the convention in Tampa have had to do any of these things, because if they have and they are standing by watching this happen, they should be ashamed. We should all be ashamed. How can we treat, what are mostly good people, this way? This is America, this is not some third world tinpot country or indeed Russia under Stalin, this is America. For goodness sake people, take a stand, help those who have so little, because you have it all and none of you appreciate that fact.
What did the homeless man get for his birthday? NOTHING!
This is NO joke. The politicians are the joke. Sad to say, none of them are probably even aware of what’s going on outside of their own little bubble.
A homeless man walks up to Ann Romney and says
“Mrs Romney, I haven’t eaten a thing in three days”
Mrs Romney replies, “that’s incredible willpower sir!”
Again, are these people who are locked away in the convention center in Tampa, promising a NEW America, a different choice, a healthier economy, aware that the people who need them most and need them right now, have been herded like cattle to another part of the city so that they are no longer and eyesore?
Two starving men are walking through an alley when one of them sees a dead cat. He runs over, sits down and starts to eat the cat, tearing the meat from its limbs. He turns round to the other man and says, “Hey, I know you’re hungry, too. Why don’t you eat some of this cat? “No!” replies the second bum, “That cat’s been dead for days, he’s all stiff and cold and smelly!” The first man says, “Okay, suit yourself,” and continues to eat everything, skin, muscle, guts, all but the skeleton. A few hours later as they are walking down the street the first man says, “Oh, I don’t feel so good. I think there might have been something wrong with that cat.” And just then, he pukes up a huge puddle of rotten cat flesh and guts with stomach bile mixed in, all half digested and looking like mush. The second man sits down next to the puddle and says, “Now you’re talking! It’s been months since I had a WARM meal!”
So when was the last time YOU had a warm meal? Today? This morning? An hour ago? Spare a thought for those who cannot afford that luxury, EVER! Give up half an hour, go outside, find a homeless person and buy them a meal. Do it now, right now. The fact is, they are desperate, and you aren’t as desperate as them. Give up your own lunch and give it to them. You will be doing a good deed, no, a great deed, and your contribution to humanity will be 100 times more than those politicians in Tampa.
