Here's a suggestion.

Use this to teach him about investing ... stocks and bonds.

Tell him he can invest the money in bonds and donate the interest to the poor so there will be a steady stream.

BUT, put the money in a mutual fund for his college education!

Being homeless and panhandling IS a job in and of itself, but you get to set your own hours, job location and work rules. Whether or not that is a good personal choice.... well, I don't think any of us would *choose* it.


That all said, there is a certain bit of human nature to exploit situations and things, whether putting out one's hand for alms or exploiting natural resources without regard to replenishment or sustainability. That's not going away until people change, which seems very unlikely at this point in human history.


Part of what is missing in our discussions of the chronically unhoused is that it changes the mindset of those who are so affected. Like chronic poverty - when it's what you know, what you've adapted to - it eventually can define ones existence and oneself.


These are not excuses for ill mannered people or those who exhibit threatening or illegal behaviors, but understanding that simply removing these folks from open view is not addressing the underlying problems that put them in circumstances that raises the ire of we *recreational* vehicle users.


And it might be astute to remember that for whatever reasons - most of us on these forums have more of whatever "it" is that allowed us to be in more fortunate circumstances than those in these kinds of pictures. Whether plain old luck; hard work and financial discipline; inheritance; better personal choices, etc, we ended up with more of "it".


Here Endeth the Reading. /
Yes and alot of us worked for what we have for in my case over 34 years.I dont want to go camping to see trailer park conditions like in those pictures.These people do effect us and our privileges at certain places like wal mart that we also support.
If that makes me unfeeling so be it

Taking pictures in public, regardless of the subject, is legal if the subject had no reasonable expectation of privacy. Parked in a WalMart parking lot one has no reasonable expectation of privacy, quite the opposite.
It's not the pictures alone. The person also made many derogatory comments and claimed that those pictured were homeless. THAT'S where it becomes slander.

To digress.. just by reading all the comments of this you see the diversity of opinions/people of this great nation. Whether we agree or disagree or agree to disagree.. just step back and reflect on what this forum/subject has brought forth. We have a lot of differences and a lot of different opinions. Is there a right or wrong - nope! But we do all the the right to our opinions. Do I have a point - nope, just pausing to reflect.
