Howie Carr the conservative commentator in Boston had a guy panhandling outside his office everyday. His line was "Can you spare a buck for a hot dog". One day Howie bought the guy a hot dog and brought it back to him. The guy said "what is that"? Howie said "It a hot dog" Then the guy told Howie what he could do to himself.

I see a lot of bums panhandling in my travels and many claim they are homeless vets. I imagine some are but what good is it going to do enabling their drinking/drug habits by throwing money at them. Is it supposed to make me feel better? I feel a lot better if I can give funds to organizations with legitimate services/support groups for wounded vets. Ones that use all the money to support the vets.

If this crazy idea catches on I will have some new gun money.
Someone tell me what "requirements" come with traditional welfare.

"The city of Stockton, Calif., plans to give its poorest residents $500 a month, no strings attached. It's the first U.S. city to guarantee a basic income, according to Stockton Mayor Michael Tubbs.

Finland has tried it. Kenya has tried it. Now the city of Stockton, Calif. is going to try it. A few dozen families will get a check, $500 a month, no strings attached. The fact that this money does not come with any requirements makes it different from a traditional welfare program. Stockton is calling it a guaranteed basic income. The city expects to hand out the first checks later this year."
