Sprain your ankle: Get a wheelchair and narcotic painkillers, and more

DEMAND ACCOUNTABILITY, STOP ENABLING BAD BEHAVIOR!

By Max R. Weller

Homeless people in Boulder, CO are such scam artists and pansies! It’s now become commonplace to see bums in wheelchairs, almost all of whom have only minor leg or foot injuries that might require a cane or crutches, an ACE bandage or walking cast, and some ibuprofen or aspirin. NOT a big deal.

But, wheelchairs are great props for panhandlers to gain sympathy and CASH from passersby; one homeless guy with a walking cast on one of his legs, apparently for a sprain he received when he fell down while intoxicated, is in a wheelchair and “flying a sign” that reads:

PERMANENTLY DISABLED

ANYTHING HELPS

GOD BLESS!

This happens to be the same bum who started to follow my friend and I to my campsite a couple of summers ago, after telling her during my 8PM “locker run” to Boulder Shelter for the Homeless, “I hate this fucking fascist country!”

What other country would enable this scurvy ne’er-do-well to rip off kindhearted people so shamelessly? BTW, he never sees his kids because he has physically abused their mother (his ex-wife), but in the past he’s exploited them in order to get $$$ for rotgut vodka:

NEED MOTEL ROOM

FOR KIDS VISIT

GOD BLESS!

I have little doubt that he’s gone to more than one Free Clinic and ER in the Denver/Boulder area to obtain multiple prescriptions for painkillers. Booze and narcotic drugs could be fatal in combination, but it’s likely he’s just selling the pills to other bums for cash. Alcohol and marijuana are what he seems to prefer . . .

It’s [WhodunitCare] in action! Thank you, President Obama.

Here’s a sign I haven’t seen in Boulder:

Business-Owner-Turns-into-Panhandler-to-Advertise-Jobs-on-Street-442620-2

Poor guy — he’s really down on his luck.

Hmmm . . . Does it have one tap for hot water? It would be good to have ramen noodles in a Thermos to take along for lunch when it turns colder. Little doubt, however, that the TRANSIENT APES will break this “beaut” the same way they’ve destroyed every other coffeemaker over the past few years.

Have a good weekend, folks. The Homeless Philosopher may or may not be back next week.
