Does it make you angry when you hear of people who are homeless or on welfare buying lottery tickets and winning the lottery? Or you're like me you don't care who wins you just wish it was you.? The reason I don't care is that you can't really control what people do with the money you give them...you hope that your helping someone when you give it to them and most times maybe you are but once its given its not yours anymore to decide what's done with it...its given.... its done..... its over...it like my tax dollars I really can't control where they go...so I don't care how the indigent spend theirs...cause like I said...once its given its not your anymore to say what's done with it...

Good topic, man. To me, it's a bitter sweet at the end of the day. I'm generally happy to see someone down in life receive another chance to "get it right". But, this is where it becomes bitter sweet. If this person is homeless and has no money to even eat, then what happened for them to arrive there? It's just as another poster here said, something happened along the way whether the business went under, their job ran out, or just plain bad money management.

You're right, once you give it, it's over...it's their's to do what ever. I've given a few bucks to some, but later learned the hard way to only buy them food...I do and it feels good. There are lots of fakers too, though, that get into a car way down the road and leave. Have you ever seen a guy holding a sign asking for money to just get some beer...and really just wants a beer? Do we just pass by this guy and give him nothing, or, help him out because he's being honest and forthecoming? Hmmmm. What if he has a drinking problem and that's why he's homeless? What about the homeless lady? Maybe she's a transient and running from an abusive relationship...never know right? 

 If I give someone money and they buy tickets with it, then it's probably the same money I would've spent on tickets. If they win, good for them and I'll probably never know about it. Now, should they be buying food to keep from starving? Yes. It's about choices, though. There are good and bad one's...and maybe the choices they made previously are the one's that have them where they are presently. Maybe not...gotta be careful in passing judgement. People doing better is always good, though.

      My guess is that he will now be a homeless person, with a house.
