There are probably hundreds of others like Joe here already, but local do-gooders want to keep them helpless and needy year-round, as they appeal for increased funding for various worthless programs.
It’s a challenge for me with a severely arthritic right hip, but at least I stand up when I play the role of Humble Beggar at N. Broadway & U.S. 36 . . . And the only “services” I use are the showers and a small locker at Boulder Shelter for the Homeless, a nonprofit I’ve donated hundreds of $$$ to in the past (before I understood what crooks they really are), and which covered up the theft of $350+ from my locker by a staff member back in March.
Joe, this entitles me to criticize them all I want. Now, go smoke some more weed! That’s why you came to Colorado, isn’t it?
