I got panhandled by a teabagger today
It was laundry day. Since my place is too small to hold a laundry pair, I go to the laundromat.
When I was unloading my stuff from the car, this scroungy looking guy came up to me. After he started with the "excuse me, sir," I looked at him...he had a Don't Tread on Me flag patch sewn onto the breast pocket of his denim vest.
So I did the only respectable thing I could think of: I told him that if he chose to fail it was not my concern and went into the building.May the FORCE be with you!

There are so many things wrong with this. First off, the accused 'teabagger' sounds more like he was a vet.

I hope this is a bouncy because jmowreader is a piss-poor liberal if it isn't. Although even if it's a bunch of bs, he still believes it and the principles he espoused. Wow.Good men sleep peaceably in their beds at night because
rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

However, the response to the panhandler war absolutely right, and I commend this DUmmie for realizing that he was not responsible for the failure of a panhandler to support himself. Now, if only he will apply that to the rest of the economy, there might be hope for him yet.

The shirt was likely a donation, but I see homeless beggars in Detroit holding signs that say "I'm a veteran". Some of them are missing limbs, too, but that might not be due to their service. Junkies lose limbs to gangrene.
I base which beggars I give money to by who looks the most pathetic, anyways, so it's not like I care whether that person is a veteran or not. I know that most of them probably use it for drugs, but I always tell them "God Bless You" when I give them the money, in hopes that it shames them into buying a sandwich, instead.

When I lived in NYC and L.A., I was always approached by panhandlers claiming to be vets, especially when I was in uniform. I always asked the same question, which is "What was your MOS?" The MOS, or Military Occupational Specialty, is the code for the job that someone did in the Army, Air Force or Marines. In the Navy, they'd have had a Rating, but a Naval vet would know the term. Out of literally hundreds of people who claimed to be vets, only three actually knew what an MOS was and answered correctly. Of them, one was a Vietnam vet who was also a belligerent drunk who used to pass out on the lawn of my apartment building in LA after mouthing off about the current military whenever he saw my uniform, one was a Vietnam Vet who wouldn't show up for the job interview that I arranged for him with another vet, and the third was a Marine who had been chaptered out for drug use.
Much more typical were the teenagers in the early 90s claiming to be Vietnam vets, or the various druggies who'd never put on a uniform in their lives, but had managed to find a set of BDUs in a clothing bin and decided to milk it.

I've seen liberals using the "Don't Tread On Me" flag -- most notably during GWB's presidency.

The Gadsden flag is still a popular emblem and not the exclusive symbol of the TEA Party. My guess is he saw someone with it and thought he'd make up an encounter. As far as the DUmmie being a "piss-poor liberal", don't be so quick. His wife probably wasn't around to fork over her cash... just sayin'.Government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem.
We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

The DUmmies are tearing the guy apart.
What you don't know from the story is that an hour before, an actual Tea Party member was approached by the homeless guy and took his vest off and gave it to him.Be Not Afraid.
