Emotional Video: Homeless man “I’m not a bum. I’m a human being”

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

We’ve all been there – walking down the city street and someone jingles a cup and asks you for some spare change. Most assume the person is just unwilling to work and wants to scam a few bucks from others – but as this video proves, it is unwise to be so quick to judge. Ronald Davis of Chicago describes being called a ‘bum’ and tearfully explains that he is a human being first.

WATCH:

“Bring that to your church. Find him. Don’t give him money or a handout. Find him. Help him fine his dignity again. Out of all of the things that we have done, all of the things that we will yet do together, all the things that we can possibly build, building somebody up is the most important thing we can do. Out of all of the things I have talked about today, maybe the reason why I’m allowed to draw breath today is for this moment. To encourage you to see people,” Glenn said.

    He is a human being who has fallen down, we need to offer a hand up and not just a hand out.

    There’s nowhere worse to be homeless and destitute than in a collectivist dystopia. God bless the person(s) who take the time to help him.

    “Blessed are the poor in spirit for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
    “Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.”
    “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the Earth.”
    “Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.”
    “Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.”
    “Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.”
    “Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.”
    “Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
    “Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.”
    “Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.”
    “Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour,
    wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to
    be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.”
    “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.”

    - Matthew 5:3-14

    Excuses become a way of life. After a while, its easy to assume the role of a street person. Compare them with many who are in the prison system, often times, many ex-inmates re-commit  crimes just to regain entry back into the familiar settings of prison life, no matter how miserable an existence.

    This man (even though seemingly sincere) has more excuses than Carters brother has peanuts.  There are numerous programs that help those who really want/need help, then there are people who have settled for spending the greater portion of their day collecting alms.

    If the economy was fixed then why people like this man still cannot find work? If the economy was fixed then why did I see a young couple living on the street holding up signs begging for work? If this economy is fixed then why do I still live at home like many young people in my town that still cannot find stable work? Where is this so called hope and change that the liberal god Obama promised us. we did change we are more poor more people out of work and trying to scrape by on little than nothing. I would in the streets right now if I did not have a family that loved me and believed in me. My heart breaks when I see people like this. The people Obama and his worshipers forgotten for political means I but he prefers a job over a forced by gun point hand out from the rich but go ahead liberals make sure hard working people can’t find work because you thieves want to take something that does not belong to you when the rest of us just want a job. Leave people like us alone we do not want you liberal fake charity we want to work for a living.

  • Carlos Serrano

    Yeah, I agree with most of everyone watching this post.  This man does not need to a hand out, we need to burn him, in fact all people with excuses for poverty, and place the ash back into the soil.  Dang Obama-nomics. 

  • Carlos Serrano

    @samfisher123:disqus There is always going, or least in the foreseeable future, homeless or impoverished people.  Obama, or any president/administration for that matter, can not grant everyone live/work skill and the jobs to apply them for everyone.  From what understanding (or bias) are you commenting from, it does not make to much sense.  
    Are you saying that if employers where able to keep most of the taxes that are collect now, there would be enough jobs that even this man would be hired?  So that there might be twice the number of Starbucks or Bank One office building that these man could work as a janitor.  

    Could you please outline a reasonable and plausible scenario where an economic policy would manifest into an employment opportunity for this man?  Please, try to consider this man’s social economic status, as far as we can tell from the video, and project it onto a real life plausibility scenario.

    I’ve spent a total of one (1) night under an overpass, and it was one of the worst nights of my life. To be wken by something crawling over you isn’t a sensation you’d easily forget, and if my situation was any indication, you won’t get back to sleep.

    I try to help whenever I can, it it has always left me feeling better about myself, despite many flaws.

    It’s hard to believe that this Administration wants to make it illegal to be homeless… 

    They say that if you are broken, weak, or homeless; that you are nothing but a burden on Society.  They don’t want the homeless because they Do Not Fit In Their Utopia!  They want us poor under their watchful eye, and as long as we play nice they will feed us, if we have children they might give us shelter, and if we don’t (and more than likely if we do anyway) they will find a place for us in a FEMA Camp.  Hide the poor from the wealthy so that they do not feel guilt for having a comfortable life (that is what they believe).  Once the money has been siphoned from the General Populace, then they too will become useless and sent down the river…  Then, when they have siphoned from the wealthy that are not part of their gang, they too will be sent down the river…

    We as Christians cannot help everybody, but we can Show Them Respect and Help Them Keep Their Dignity!  We can give what extras we have, or we can give to a Church that Helps the Homeless!  We Can Pray For Them, and We Can Encourage Them To Find God/Jesus!  We should also be wary what we say or think about them, because the way things are going, you Never Know If You Are The Next Homeless Person and/or Family…

    Glenn Beck is right, We are so caught up in losing America, we don’t see the true and honest help so many people on the streets are needing. I feel so bad about this. I will do whatever I can to remember people like him, and when I see them, I will reach into my pocket help them as much as I can. I know Glenn Beck don’t them money, but I don’t have a business either. So all I can do is reach in my pocket, and at night Pray for these people that they get help.

    I’m asking some successful person in that area to go stand with that man…sign in hand….”This man needs a job and we can help.”  Signup people to assist in getting this fellow a job…..Help him find a place to live a change of clothing and a job he can walk to or a way to help him get there….. Commit to 6 months or whenever he can manage. That’s more than lip service….It is a hand up!

    Most people would give a man like this the shirt off of their back. I would but unfortunately so many in our society are not humiliated or bothered like this man for being out of work. Many have no problem living off the backs of others and it makes it much harder for this man who wants to do better. It is a shame.

    Connie, don’t forget to Pray for Others…

    As you go through the Store and you see someone hobbling along with a limp, Pray for them.  If you see someone in a wheelchair Pray for them.  If you see someone huddled on a corner, Pray for them.  If you see a kid running around in worn out shoes, Pray for them.  If you see someone standing on the side of the road with a broke down car, Pray for them.  If you see someone strung out on drugs or drunk, Pray for them.  If you see someone pay for a Starbucks Coffee with a $100 bill, Pray for them.  If you go to Church, Pray for them…

    One of the Problems We Have In Today’s Society, Is We Have Forgotten How To Pray For Everyones Salvation.  The wayward are not always homeless or broke…  More often then not I find myself praying for total strangers, I do it because I don’t know their story, I don’t know if they have been Saved, I Pray because I don’t know what tomorrow has in store for me or my family.  One thing I Do Know… Is Everyone Can Use Another Person Praying For Them!!!

    As part of the “Be Real Show Love” theme of 2013, on May 10th First Baptist Church of Springfield Illinois will be setting up a Box City on its lots. That night we will feed the homeless, invite them to worship, and then the Pastor, Music Minister and Evangelist are going to sleep with the homeless in Cardboard boxes. The next morning Business Men in Christ, a local men’s group, will be bringing over breakfast. What we hope to accomplish is to get them a message of hope from the gospel, show them we care, get the general public involved in seeing how the homeless live, and promote the provisioning of a 365 24/7 shelter instead of just providing one in the winter months. From this classes will be spawned to help them get back on their feet. for more info, contact the pastor, pastormike@ springfieldfirstbaptist.org  God Bless

    My thoughts exactly!  I donate business clothes to organizations for women that help them dress for interviews, etc.  All it takes is for each of us to commit a bit of time, talent and treasure to help this man…and actually, it helps us more.  I live on a rural island but would be willing to put a few bucks into an account to get this man started…as I’m sure others would reading this who are not located close enough to help him in person.  When we put it in HUMAN terms, one HUMAN at a time, we ALL can make a difference.

    If one gives feeling guilty, then ones gift is in vain.  Do it without thought or thinking, as I do when I see a person looking for a handout when I’m near by.  To say not to give money, then we are judging that person, no matter what they may look like, and thus those who judge are not of the Father.  They are human beings and their free will is as important to them as ours is to us.  We are not to judge them at all, but so many do, thinking they know better what that man or woman may need.  Sounds a little like our Government telling us how to live and what we are to eat and not eat or how we are to spend our money, and on what products.  Think about it. God bless.

    I live in Chicago. I can tell you one thing I am probably the only conservative in my neighbor hood. There is a man I see everyday. I give him a dollar and a cigarette every day. We have very little money but I see everyone drive by this man. I have spoken to him many times. It is the most I can do. We exchange “God Bless You” every day. There are so many like this man in Chicago. And then you have people who are using 10 or 12 food stamps cards and driving a Lincoln. This man could use the help. Another problem is the Judicial System in Chicago, they make it very hard for anyone to get a chance. I knew a guy that was a felon, he was a drinking and a drugger-he , quit drinking and drugging, hasn’t been arrested for 15 years,  worked at the same place for 10 years, even after the business moved. He was arrested for  having a revoked driver’s license a few weeks ago. The city of Chicago confiscated his car and slapped a 1100 impound fee on it. And tickets in the hundreds. But after 15 years of being a model citizen, the state of Illinois refused to let him drive again, but he went to work every day to support his family, yet illegals are stopped every day, in accidents and nothing happens to them-and unlike this man in the video, they are given carte blanc when it comes to housing and welfare. It is a hard road in Illinois, for an American citizen-it seems that being the liberal bastion of nonsense, they never let you pay your debt to society-no matter what you do .

    If someone in Chicago has a Pay-as-you-Go Phone that is just sitting around collecting dust, then put $20 on it and give it to Ronald Davis so that he has a chance to receive a Call to Work…  If you have a spare clean Jacket, Shirt, and Pants you never wear anymore, Give him those items too!  I would but I live in Oregon and that is not practical for me to do…  If he is honest and wants to work, ask him his information and jot it down then go home and make him a basic resume with the phone number, and give him 20 copies.  Check back with him in a week, and see if he remembers you and/or if his situation is showing signs of improvement.  Last but not least of all, Remind Him That God Helps Those That Help Themselves…

    And if after you have tried all of that and he shows that he only wants to be a Bum, you can at least sleep at night knowing you did your best to help him…

    Rickey, I must admit I have thought badly about those who beg in the streets. I’m glad I saw this video because it reminds me that there are those, such as this man, who really do want to work and be self sufficient. I’d like to know the percentage of the homeless who are trying to claw their way out as opposed to those who don’t mind living off our taxes. Usually, when I see someone asking for money, I think to myself, “I already pay an arm and a leg for my taxes. It seems I’m taxed to the nines”. My husband literally works 4.5 months out of the year to pay the taxes removed from his paycheck and we still had to pay thousands of dollars in taxes on top of that. This government has removed hospitality from my heart. This video has softened that a bit. Thanks for your post.

    My husband works at a homeless shelter, and the stories that he tells will absolutely make even someone with a heart of stone cry.  He sees those who can put their entire worldly goods in a Walmart bag and still have room in that bag.  Many of these poor men are my husband’s age!  I am so thankful that my husband has this job because though it’s part-time, it is a job!  Between the two of us, we have 6 part-time jobs just to make ends meet…yet we both work with people who live on the streets and have not had it easy in half of our jobs.  Unless someone has worked with those not as fortunate….you honestly do not know what you are missing….and we’re thankful for the path our lives have taken.  May the Lord bless you for reaching out to the less fortunate……

    Glenn is assuming the church will help but the churches are not what they claim. 
    I have seen many turn sincere needy people away when a hand up would have been so easy
    but there was no  accolades in it for them no one was looking and patting them on the back Just last week my sister helped a young kid who moved to our area to live (PA) with his brother
    his bother beat him up and kicked him out. He was out side a gas station freezing my sister 
    help him get a voucher for a hotel that night and my mom was going to the church the next and was sure the church (her church) would help out. They would not said there was no money and nothing they could do this church is well off like most in our area. She was shocked ! He had a job interview and she was willing to get him there if he could find away to stay. My sister got him a hotel room for the next night he had no one his mother lives here with her dead beat boyfriend and they could not give him a place to stay until he got on his feet he could not go to his brothers, the church would not help the Salvation Army did provide the voucher for one night, would not help because he could not prove he has lived here for 6 mos.. Long story short we put him in a hotel Sat and Sunday and got him a train ticket to go to his Grandmother in Florida and made sure he ate and got to train station on Monday very sad story only 19 years old and the only person he had was in Florida and lives in senior housing an can not have anyone move in for more then a few days he was hoping he would be able to move in with his girlfriend when she graduates if not at least he won’t freeze. I have to disagree with getting into the church and tithing  here we see exactly who our money helped. The church is to much like the government and only helps the same people the government helps the takers

    The best way to get people out of poverty is to not make them comfortable in poverty.

    EBT cards, food stamps, government handouts. None of these give the recipients the slightest bit of idea about inflation. Obama PROMISED he’d not raise taxes “a single dime” on the middle class and poor, yet he’s increased EBT and food stamps like nobody before him. The people receiving these freebies haven’t the slightest idea of just how much he HAS increased taxes because they don’t see the blood, sweat, and tears that goes into EARNING every single dime taken away from others to give them those cards and stamps. 

    PO (pre-obama) I took out $300 per month for gas, groceries and essentials. PO (post-obama) I’m taking $500 per month out and barely making it to the end of the month. Today is the only the 25th, and I went to the bank this morning. Of cours, most of the increase goes to pay for gas. 

    We may be “pumping more oil” than ever before, but it’s coming from private parties and states, all small vendors who can’t get the massive volumen discounts that always came from pumping on federal lands. Now federal land sits idle and we the people are starving while our leaders continue dancing down the yellow brick road.

    The worst part of the whole thing is WE LET THEM GET AWAY WITH IT!

    And that hasn’t changed – it’s interesting to read some of our framers and founders on Islam.  John Quincy Adamsm, for example:“The precept of the Koran is perpetual war against all who deny that Mahomet is the prophet of God. The vanquished may purchase their lives, by the payment of tribute; the victorious may be appeased by a false and delusive promise of peace; and the faithful follower of the prophet, may submit to the imperious necessities of defeat: but the command to propagate the Moslem creed by the sword is always obligatory, when it can be made effective. [Mohamet] declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind…. Between [Christianity and Islam], thus contrasted in their characters, a war of twelve hundred years has already raged. The war is yet flagrant….”  And later, the progressive Teddy Roosevelt: “Wherever the Mohammedans have had a complete sway, wherever the Christians have been unable to resist them by the sword, Christianity has ultimately disappeared”

    IF he wants work he is one of the few that do hopefully someone will help him my wife and I used to see homeless men here in Virgina Beach I would talk to them bring them a meal pray with them but most may say they want to work but really don’t I know because I tried helping a couple of them get work, the problem was neither could pass a drug test…. This is why I never gave them money I wouldn’t feed their addiction…. One time we were at the train station in Washington DC we were sitting having lunch a few tables away was a well dressed man in a suite a panhandler was talking to him about his “ministry”  he was quite good almost convincing …. The well dressed man gave him some paper money and left … the panhandler saw us as his next mark and came over with a different spiel ….he quickly realized from my attitude and body language it wasn’t working…. He then said “ I’m not gona get anything am I “  I looked at him and asked you mentioned to the other fellow you were in a ministry to the homeless do you know the verse if Thou will not work thou shall not eat?  He went on looking for his next mark some of these fellows take home two to three hundred dollars a day tax free!  More than I make working…Yes it would be great to help the homeless and those in need…. But if they can’t get off the drugs or whatever their poison is it won’t matter what you try to do for them because they don’t want to help themselves

    Muslim beliefs in the Quran
    Slay the unbelievers wherever you find them(2:191)
    Make war on the infidels living in your neighboorhood (9:123)
    When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you catch them (9:5)
    Kill the Jews and the Christians if they do not convert to Islam or refuse to pay Jizya tax (9:29)
    Any religion other than Islam is not acceptable (3:85)
    The Jews and the Christians are perverts; fight them (9:30)
    Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticise Islam. (5:33)
    The infidels are unclean; do not let them into a mosque (9:28)
    Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water; melt their skin and bellies(22:19)
    Do not hanker for peace with the infidels; behead them when you catch them (47:4)
    The unbelievers are stupid; urge the Muslims to fight them (8:65)
    Muslims must not take the infidels as friends (3:28)
    Terrorise and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an (8:12)
    Muslims must muster all weapons to terrorise the infidels (8:60)
    The Qur’an certainly proclaims that when the time is appropriate, Muslims must use force to convert the unbelievers to Islam. For the non-Muslims, the alternative to this is to pay the humiliating protection money (Jizya tax) or be killed (by beheading, of course). A militarily dominant Islam, without doubt, precludes the peaceful co-existence with the unbelievers if the Muslims have to abide strictly by the unalterable stipulations of the Qur’an.
    This is why we see very few “moderate” muslims coming out and speaking against the violence. There is so much overwhelming evidence stacked against them not able to be “moderate” because of the fundamental belief’s of Islam

     In that case, I can’t be American then, because my ultimate allegiance is to God, and my Christian religion forbids me from doing anything that would support a nation above God.

    The problem with Islam isn’t their devotion to their twisted version of God. It’s that their core tenets, based on the Qur’an and the Hadith, command them to strive against all non-Muslims for all the days of their lives. It compels them to conquer in the name of their religion. It allows them to mistreat and oppress non-Muslims. etc…

    Basically their religion commands them to convert, kill, or conquer the entire planet by any means necessary, and endorses the mistreatment of conquered non-Muslims. That’s the problem.

    You need to trust the Lord Glenn, all of us are not going to go through the crap that the devil is throwing at people…My God says….John 10…Jesus is the Good Shepherd…not some rotten hired man that can’t take care of his sheep…
    7 Then Jesus said to them again, “Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. 8 All who ever came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. 9 I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. 10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have LIFE, and that they may have it more ABUNDANTLY..Listen up…our FATHER owns the universe, the whole earth and everything in it…NO THE devil IS A LIAR… MY FATHER IS NOT OUT TO GET ME AND LEAD ME DOWN A ROAD OF DISTRUCTION….

    31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.
    34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me,I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”Matthew 25

    He says he has no phone. WELL Obummer gives out phones to those that laced their vote for him. Maybe this man didn’t vote. Someone call Obummer and tell him he is missing a vote. This is so sad. I see it everyday and I live in a very small town. This man really wants a better life but lets face it there are people who prefer to be known as “OUTDOOR PERSONS”. I sincerely hope someone finds this man make a place for his services. I am sure he is able to help others so how about Habitat for Humanity. For the first time today I went to one of their outlets. There were many people stocking and shelving items. I know they would never turn away a human in need. When someone does find this man he needs to be told to quit smoking!

    I must confess, this affected me deeply.  I was driving in my car earlier and was listening and I don’t know what it was, but the humility in his voice just brought me to tears.  I nearly had to pull over…imagine…crying because your listening to someone’s confession of being human.  It made me feel inadequate and a sinner for ignoring people such as himself.  I began asking myself…you go to church…why aren’t you helping in the church with the homeless or needy.  I honestly answered myself in saying “someone else will step up and do it”.  I found myself feeling quite pathetic!  What kind of christian does that?  Who am I to condemn anyone for not helping out people such as he.  I’ve shown this video to my children because it struck a cord in me.  We have a relative by marriage who is homeless.  I’m a hypocrite for not reaching out.  Once again…someone in the family will help him I’ve always thought.  I’m not sure what to do next…but I don’t want to do something out of guilt for not having helped out mankind in need.  I need to really think about what my mission as a christian is.  If nothing else Mr. Beck…You’ve took a ball bat and hit me broad side against my head.  Shame on me!

    Since Obama took office I have seen my business cut in half but I never give up hope and faith. I met a man who who does yard work and lives in a shed gave him a job and he is so good that soon I and many others recommended him and he now can hold his head up and walk with dignity and with his head up high. It is refreshing to see someone grow and bloom into a thriving capable person. I believe what goes around comes around so pay it forward my friends.

    I feel your pain. I was homeless and hopeless too. I don’t do drugs or alcohol,  I had a 5 bedroom home, a convertable, good job ect and lost everything and none of which was my fault. Unfortunately, horrible things happen to good people. However, Family Promise and Homeless Connections in Chicago helped me get back on my feet again.  I am starting my life over. It feels like getting your first apartment after high school all over again and working a low income job until something better comes along.   I’m still a bit bitter over the loss however, I am  very fortunate that so many strangers and organizations such as these helped me get my life and dignity back.

    Try doing that san educated woman with a 19 year old son, and this was done us by members of our church, who were not honest in their dealings with us ad robbed us.  I have all the proof, they even broke the law, but can’t afford to go to court to get it back.

    I’m a lifelong Mormon who took a leap of faith and moved to Provo with my son to better our lives.  The treatment by local leaders and members and previous leaders has caused my son to no longer want to be a member of this church or go on a mission.

    And not one second of outrage from any of the fellow church members.  I keep going to church and the Temple (this is my Father’s House, and those satanic secretions will NOT keep me from my Father’s House) but our story makes people uncomfortable and they just want me to pretend.

    And I am a gifted writer and researcher, Glenn, and would be perfect or American Dream Labs.  And your own company wouldn’t even let me know they’d received my CV and writing samples.  I have a degee in Education and over 150 articles in print/online in military and American history, conservative and Constitutional principles, and against the DofEd and NEA–which I refused to join when I graduated from college, the commie bastards–with very big conservative online/print news, not to mention all the radio shows I’ve been on as a guest.

    But your group wouldn’t help a faithful Mormon mom and her disillusioned son, who I am still praying and studying scriptures with everyday, reminding him that the doctrine is pure mathematical truth, and the people need an ass kicking…so I have one question for you:

    Will YOU find ME now?

    And still I never stop reading, writing, and being faithful to God’s law, whether you walk your talk or not. – WARCHICK

    I tried to help people like this before. I felt compassion because there are many who seem sincere like this man who have a good story to go along with their lot in life. I would caution anyone who tries it. Most will steal you blind if given the chance no matter how much you have helped them. The biggest problem is alcohol abuse. They cannot and will not shake it. In California I read that they have programs for people like this to get them back on their feet. The one requirement is that they have to go without drugs or alcohol for three months and many cannot do it. Most cities have a daily work force where people like this can work for minimum wage as a laborer. Their effort to make it go right never matches up with their stories and their stories change depending on who they are talking to.

    You truly NEVER know! I worked from the time I was 14 and quit at 63
    Only because I was in sales and I could not make expenses in this economy, I had to quit and take social security, but was dead broke for two months until it kicked in. I found myself living in a homeless shelter.
    I had been divorced after 38 years of marriage; bankrupt and lost my home.
    I spent one night sleeping in my car and went to a shelter. Never in my life would I have thought I would ever be In such a position. I worked hard all my life. It is humbling and frightening.

    When I was 21 I owned my own automotive customizing and graphics company, it was pretty successful.  I owned a car, truck, and motorcycle, and lived in a decent apartment without roommates.  I threw BBQ’s and ate NY Cut Steaks and Lobster regularly.  Then I got into a motorcycle accident and broke my left arm, messed up my Left Leg to where is was a swollen as a football.  I could not work in that condition, I could not get Unemployment (because I never paid into an account), I could not get public assistance because I had too much stuff (which I lost 80% of because I was young and still paying for everything on credit), and I had about $12k in the bank at the time of the accident.  I paid bills until the money ran out (which was very fast because of buying everything on credit).  Within 6 months I was completely broke, lost my residence, lost most everything I had, ate Pork & Beans Cold out of the can, and lived out of my car.  I would be chased out of one location or another by Police Officers.  I also lost my Pride, Dignity, and Senses, I was ashamed to let my friends and family see how far I fell in such a short time…

    My Pride was the worst thing for me, because I had places to go and live for a while if I would have ate my pride.  After 5 months of scraping by my car died, then and only then did I go to my Mom and ask for help.  She never chastized me for being an idiot and not coming to her sooner…  Later in life as I got older and a little more wiser, I realized that the Lord had brought me down from my Perch & Sins, and Humbled me in a way I never expected!  And I Thank Him For Doing That Because Otherwise I would Not have Repented and Learned Compassion For Others That Are Less Fortunate…

    Connie, that is so kind of you.  I know he will be grateful for your prayers.  Next time someone gives him $30.00, maybe he can get enough change on the same day to go to Walmart and buy one of those cheap phones, and a month’s phone card, or he can go to the welfare office and get an Obamaphone, and use the $30.00 to get a month’s worth of minutes for it, then he can give out his phone number to the places he applies for work, and he will get that job!  I have faith he will make it if he really applies himself to the solution.  Just being a “human being” doesn’t usually solve anything.  One has to work out a solution in his/her mind, then work their plan, simple though it may be.  If I were in his shoes, instead of getting a room one or two nights, I would get a phone.  I use a refillable phone, too, so I know how inexpensive they are overall.

    Ronald Davis is a human being just like the rest of us…JUST LIKE THE REST OF US ! But he’d be better off as a stray dog, stray cat..cause then everyone’s ” humanity, love and compassion ” would see to it that there was food, shelter and needs met! Please just think about that. I believe there is a collective prejudice in America, it goes like this…America is the land of opportunity. A place where everything is possible if you just work hard enough. So when people can’t live the American dream, it is their fault. They are lazy. Because we all KNOW the dream is available ..an equal opportunity! So we turn our backs on the “lazy losers” it’s their fault. But we send billions to help people in poor countries, after all, they don’t have the opportunities that America gives. We show compassion for them…those helpless people who have no way out. I’d love to help them too, I’m not disrespecting those who do help. I’m just asking what kind of people are we? We must stop waiting on the gov. Can you see, they are not about helping us. WE must help ourselves. Stop going along, stop believing the world is a place of scarcity.. We are all we have, follow the golden rule.

    The numbers on the streets have grown and are STILL growing. By the grace of Elohim, there be any of us! What are American churches doing with the tithes given them? How many people drive past the disparaged on their way to church without giving them a second thought when they have at their disposal the means of making all the difference in this world? Was not the words Yeshua spoke “follow me”? What did he do that we should follow? Well, everything really, but notably, He ALWAYS took care of the needs first of those He spoke to first! Further, He ALWAYS went to the outcasts and downtrodden of society. Are we REALLY “following Him” or have we created our own “God” under our own terms?
    We wonder why out country is falling apart, yet we as a society are far more interested in following the churches created by man (the exact same as the Scribes and Pharisees in Yeshua’s time on earth) than we are “in the fear and admonition of Yahweh”.
    Perhaps this “Sunday” (key word “Sun) on the way to church some of you that are blessed to do so, can stop and see what a difference YOU can make in the life of someone downtrodden, especially since the Sabbath was the day before (the sixth day – Fri. at sundown to sundown on the Sabbath – 7th day rest and worship Yahweh under HIS terms).
    For those of you that wish to argue that with your “replacement theology”, save it! I’ve done too much research back to the beginning into my own corrections, to the time BEFORE man corrupted the Word of Elohim and continue to do so, to stop and argue with you.
    I might suggest you start with diligently searching WHERE in the Word the Sabbath was done away with. That should keep you busy until the end of time because you won’t find it! Once you’ve searched that and then the full understanding of the Feasts (you know, those actual holidays Yahweh instructed His people to observe and that would include YOU if you are grafted in). From there, you should be on the right track and reaching out should be your second nature! I’ll leave the first nature to your own intelligence as most of you would stand up and fight for the Ten Commandments yet never stop to observe them yourselves!

    The salvation army has 3 locations in chicago.   And I am sure that there are many more services.  His thinking stinks on ice.  It may sound hard, but then so is life.  Thinking is the only way out and then acting on that thought.  Pan handling shows he has stopped thinking.  I will not buy his story, he can do better if he wants to.

    I always try to give some money to people on the streets if I can. I’ve been with friends and they have said “why are you giving him/her money – you know it’s for booze or alcohol.” My response is always the same, “what they do with it I have no control over, but I’m not going to turn my back on someone in need.” I’ve always felt that it could be that moment in time that helps them to change their lifestyle or let them live another day.  The way I look at it is that it could be any one of us at any time in our lives and I would hope someone would help me or my loved one.

    I’ve been a part time chaplain at the downtown rescue mission in Panama City Florida for 19 years. I know many people who think that all those at the mission are drunks, addicts, or just bums. It’s true that many are there because they have made wrong choices. But normally their wrong choices are because they didn’t know how to make the right choices, and still don’t. And as this man’s condition is once your down you don’t have the clothes, or the wherewithal to get out of the situation your in. Right now there are so many people out there applying for the same job, that if your an employer and your looking at this man and 15 others that are well dressed have an address and a phone, who do you think there going to pick. I met a young woman last night at the mission who had to leave her home and family in Tenn. because of spousal abuse. She has no money, no friends, no were to sleep, and no job. Tears were dropping off her chin as through sobbing, she tried to explain to me what had brought her here. While we give hundreds of millions of dollars to governments around this world that hate us, we have thousands of people right here in America that are in desperate need of help. There is something wrong.

    I have always been skeptical of people on the street panhandling.  We all have seen or heard stories of how some of these people bring in a decent living by doing this.  Whether this man is one of those or not is not my place to judge.  The few times I have come across a person like this, I was able to take them in to a nearby place and buy them a decent meal.  You might be surprised by the response.  They could hold their head up as they ordered a decent mean.  And yes, I did it as much for me as I did for them.

    I agree with you. Obammy does use all of our tax payer money to pay millions of dollars to Muslim Brotherhood and other Mid-East countries and “O” wanted the sequester so he could punish the American people. That way he could send our money to these muslim terrorist, jihard and the other evils. He can’t help us unless he degrades each one of us and puts all of us on food stamps and what-ever we need. I wonder what he is going to do when we do not take his food stamps or free give-aways? We have rights and his definition of our rights aren’t the same that we have grown up with. I also wander if America is going to survive the end of his term? He and all of cabinet are the death of America. But, a lot of us are very strong and we will try our best to not let this happen.  May God Bless America.

    Glenn Beck, are you kidding? Very emotional. “Just down on my luck”. Temporarily out of work? With all available government aid, he cannot find any means. Was he smoking? Pretty expensive. Giving people things rarely helps long term. He needs help to find out how to help himself. Benjamin Franklin said that we need to be uncomfortable in our poverty. Not because Franklin was mean but because we need natural course to lead us to a better way, not to the handout line. What did people do before federal income tax and forced government handouts. Handouts propagate more helplessness. It is his right to make poor choices and be poor just like it is his right to earn his way. Great Socialist propaganda. From those according to their abilities and to those according to their need. Only the government can tell who is who. No one should be rude to the guy but nor should he beg from people while taking no responsibility. Just down on my luck??? Did anyone ask what he does, how he spends his money, is he mentally ill, etc. Wow. Inspiring? Unsubscribe me.

    Beck, and his 2 sidekicks Pat and Stu went on and on about how Orwell’s “1984″ was written by Huxley during this program. And those three stooges believe they’re credible?

    And what branch of Christianity do you belong to that goes directly in opposition to the word of Christ that commands you to “render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s”?

    Christ Himself told us to give our nations their due. God is above any nation, but we do have obligations to the government that protects us and our fellow man, cares for us and our fellow man, and is over us and our fellow man. 

    A religion that promotes love and helping others is far and away above on that promote hate and abuse. A religions that teaches us to feed the hungry is far and away above one that promotes the dismemberment of the thief who steals a loaf of bread because he is starving.
