Homeless lady story made me quiver...

    I didn't know you had to qualify or have to prove yourself to beg on the streets. The Sun + Citytv should be ashamed of themselves to report this tragedy. Wankers. What a waste of journalistic energy. Even if you're a millionaire, you can beg at Yonge + Bloor. There is no redeeming value in concluding that she is not without home. Arghhhh...! She had this to say:

    They say music is the food of love,
    Let's see if you are hungry enough,
    Take a bite, take another, just like a good boy would,
    Get a sweet thing on the side,
    Home cooking, homicide,
    Side order, could be your daughter,
    Fingerlicking good

    Come on baby, eat the rich,
    Put the bite on the son of a bitch,
    Don't mess around, don't give me no switch,
    C'mon baby eat the rich
    C'mon baby eat the rich

    Sittin' here in a restaurant,
    Tell the waiter just what you want
    Is that the meat, you wanted to eat,
    How would you ever know?
    Hash browns an' bacon strips,
    I love the way that you lick your lips,
    No fooling, I can see you drooling,
    Feel the hunger grow

    Eat up, eat you, eat me,
    Eat two, get one free
    Shetland pony, extra pepperoni
    Just pick up the phone,
    Eat greek, or eat chinese,
    Eat salad, or scarf up grease
    You're on the shelf, maybe eat yourself,
    Come on, bite my bone

    Wow now I have heard everything!
    There have been stupid things said on this board but I think you have just come up and said the stupidest.
    This shaky lady has a home an apartment, with very nice furniture she gets dropped off and picked up in a nice car to scam people out of there hard earned money.
    This bitch was making up to $2,500.00 tax free dollars a week.
    Why don't we all go downtown with signs lieing about our current state, shit for 2,500 I think I am crazy not to.
    The sun and city did a good job uncovering a con-artist. If you want to throw your money away like a sucker thats your problem maybe you need psychiatric help.
    Everyone who gave her money feels cheated hey well at least they are learning a lesson I learned a long time ago, don't give bums money no matter what. At least I'm not a sucker!
    If it was up to me the bitch would be deported, if you came to Canada to scam and beg get the fuck out we don't need you in this country!
    Sorry but some of you people need to WAKE UP!

    Actually, I've been lurking for sometime, I highly doubt you have the right to a point finger at anyone with this statement, but I agree with you that she did cheat people out of lots of money.

    this is not to attack anyone's comment or opinion about this issue, but maybe it's not this woman's fault.

    i don't know, could it be possible that she's been forced into doing this? there's probably a lot more details to this that we don't know. We are just seeing the one side reported by the Sun.

    i don't know much about this, nor have i seen her on the street to make a judgement, it's just a thought.
  5. The media is right now in a feeding frenzy over this, as they really can't report a lot that is going on elsewhere. Afganistan is currently mostly classified info, and there aren't much facts to report about there that would be of interest to readers anyways.

    However, this lady has bungled her way through it all. I've seen her on TV several times and she does seem a little suspicious about things. On CITY TV, she managed to throw a pot of water at a reporter and get her. On Canada Am - she's been excitable and had a translator, and yet, she still seems to be able to understand english in a variety of footage I've seen on her. Finally, she's been very inconsistent with information that she's given on TV.

    However, looking bad on television is not a crime, though we tend to crucify people who do.

    From the Ministry of not really buying into her story, but still has a seed of doubt.

    "There have been stupid things said on this board but I think you have just come up and said the stupidest." ~pest


    ...I give indiscriminately because I know that giving change doesn't make me any richer or poorer. I'm a sucker for giving a looney to someone begging on the street?
    ATM service charges and arbitrary gas prices makes a sucker out of all of us.
    A friend of mine who's dad is a multi-millionaire begged on the streets of a city in Switzerland several years ago. Ya never know what you might have to do to get by. I'm saddened by the insensitive replies. By the way, Xenophobia is not cool. Elitist attitudes don't belong in Canada... maybe during Weimar Germany.

    i'm upset with the sun and citytv for appealing to the lowest common denominator on this story(not that i'm surprised). they are demonizing an entire class of people just to get ratings! homeless people bad! homeless people leeches! homeless people all liars!

    if you ever thought that all people on the street were telling you the truth then that is why i would call being naive. people are just talking so much because this one lady was caught lying! we shouldn't be surprised that this happened.

    now people are reluctant to give anyone change because of this one lady. there are people out there who need it. i hope these people turn to crime now and rob all of those at the sun and citytv blind! and while they're at it fuck up queen's park a bit.

    One time, a few weeks ago, I was to be on Breakfast Television for some stupid thing, so we get there and we are waiting out in the cold to get into the building. We end up going to the starbucks and sitting outside is a homeless man with a dog. I throw him a toony and wish him well.

    When I walked out, he started to talk about TV and if we were gonna be on and all that stuff. Well during our little chat, I look over to see that with the money I threw him, he went to the variety store just down the road and bought his dog some dog food. I felt good. And our chat was "pleasant".

    I definately don't mind giving some change to homeless people. Sure there are scammers out there, but if your attitude is to not give money at all to avoid the scammers, then the real homeless people will miss out.

    :) <------ $2 poorer, but full of priceless happiness

    Your a sucker cause the bitch has more money then probably you do.
    If your homeless and need to beg to survive is one thing, making into a business out of it is something else. If you had read the papers you would see where she lives and the things she has, this lady is not poor.
    If you want to make this lady rich thats your problem but for me I think she should be charged with fraud. Don't you see when someone abuses the system or our generousity it makes it more difficult for the people who actually need help.
    I am sick and tired of hearing about all this bullshit so I have decided to give them nothing.
    I work hard for my money nobody has ever given me a penny so I am sure as hell not going to throw it away.
    There is a guy in a wheelchair in front of the eaton centre with a sign that reads Vietnam Vet. American tourists gather around him to hear his bullshit stories, they give him lots of money and thank him for fighting in the war. The guy is only about 40 which would have made him way to young to be in the war. He is from Newfoundland and has never been overseas or the states, and at 10:00pm he gets up and carries his wheelchair home.
    I have talked to him and he laughs at you suckers!
    Sorry but shut the hell up! You are just amazed that someone actually said what most people think. Everything I said is the truth if it scares you don't read it.
    Shit every damn time someone's opinion differs from the kissing of each other's asses they say it's unintelligent or they want attention.

    no offence Pest, but I would like to know why you always insist on saying that your opinions differs from everyone elses.

    You're not catching flack because of a non-traditional viewpoint, it's that your opinions (or the way that you present them) are often wildly ridiculous.

    No, you're making sweeping generalizations. I don't keep up to date with the issues in the sun, and to be honest I don't care about this rich homeless lady. However, I do often give spare change to the homeless when I make it up to Toronto. Why? Because some people genuinely need a little help sometimes, and it's sad that you can't see that. If you don't believe in giving to the homeless, that's fine, but saying that they're all trying to sucker everyone else, or that they have some hidden agenda is a little much. Not everyone is trying to scam you.

    Not surprising she was a gypsy. I used to think what is the big deal with gypsy's and why do people hate them so much. Especially when they had came here from europe a couple of years back. Most people I talked to said send them back.
    When I went to europe last summer I realized why. In every country they are begging, scaming people with there tricks, pickpocketing it was disgusting. They claim they are
    discriminated against but who caused it themselves.
    There were so many stories in europe of how the women would take there children downtown dress up in rags and basically throw them in tourists faces begging for there children. Only to be picked up later that evening by there husband and taken to there nice home. I saw this shit in almost every major city I went to and now its here.
    Shit we don't need that in this country I say deport the bitch.

    He's right though, I too saw this first hand on travels. Gypsies are bad for that.

    Shit what is wrong with you people.
    Do you people go outside the world is not a rosy place where everyone holds hands. Just because you take a pill and it makes you feel good doesn't mean everyone in the world is good. I have taken the same pill many times and it hasn't damaged my brain to the extent where I can't see what is right and what is wrong.
    I am telling you I was in europe and saw first hand the problems they have with gypsy's but no I guess I am ignorant again and you know everything even about places you haven't been.
    The bitch was collecting wellfare and other social benifits which is deducted from your pay then she goes downtown and makes more tax free money then we make in a week from people like you giving her money.
    If you add it up she was making well over 60 grand.
    But I guess she should be rewarded for it, right.
    Hey why don't we all pitch in and buy her a house we can donate it from the tribe board. How many members do we have again.
    Give me a break!

    Postmod & deep are right about you Pest, you are easy to bait.

    I simply don't understand how you know that you come to conclusion that I'm disagreeing with you, some one needs to calm down and realized this is the internet.

    Playing with the resident retard is fun for about, oh, 500 of his posts or so.

    Time for the retard to type out stuff for 500 posts: about 42 hours (@5 minutes/post)

    Time for non-retard to type out stuff for 500 posts: 4 hours (@ 30 seconds/post)

    Time for retard to realize he is a retard: Suuuure, like that's gonna happen... it's like expecting a piece of shit to flush itself.

    N.B.: Data for above calculations based on extrapolations/deductions from said retard's use of language (syntax, lexicon, etc.), in fact, a cursory read of said retard's posts will lead anyone to the same conclusion: Pest is a retarded hemorrhoid.

    Plato at least I am not a big dork like you are.
    Why don't you get a life I thought I was on your ignore list anyway.
    Someone started a thread that I think is a really stupid way to look at a situation.
    I made my points respond to them why do you have to resort to calling names you jackass.
    Sorry I am not into butt kissing other tribe members.
    If some of you would take your heads out of each others
    asses you might see the light you will see that I am right.
