In the last Depression, people moved to find work, worked for food, and rarely begged. In the Great Depression 2.0 people have such a sense of entitlement that they beg for things they need and expect handouts and never offer compensation or too work. Only please someone fix my problems for me. A public bus pass is not good enough for one poster, I offered her one. Whats coming of this world?
Our local Craigslist has become grounds for sad stories and begging for help......

**((BabyShower is in October))**
I am a intelligent man that is good with my hands and I am 50 years of age and that last part seems to be the problem. All my life I have great jobs and have done well with them, but now with the economy and my age it just ain't happening. I have always been the best at what ever job I get, like a few years ago I got a job building and upholstering headboards. I never did anything like that in my life, but by the end of the year I was better than those who were doing it for forty years, that's the kind of guy I am. So how about cutting me some slack and give me a job, I am a Vet. so how about it. Thank you my name is Mike

I am a single mom just moving to start a new life in phoenix az. I am leaving most of my sons items behind for an easy move and low funds. I would appreciate any low priced or free items if possible. Am needing a crib and summer clothes for an 10 month old boy. We only have cold clothes due to us moving from cold state, would appreciate any help...thanks again.
I am a cat resque advicate. I have my own cats from 20 years down and feed strays as part of vol. work. I have lost my income , unemployment, and am struggling with financial problems. I am a huge advocate of spay and neauter and use the low income county programs to help with the cat population. I have, at this time, no income of any kind until I become employed full time as is my goal. I am in desperate need of help with food for the animals and any help with rent for September. Becoming homeless is not an option as this will harm the cats mentally as well as physically. In otherwords, living in a van with them wont work. I have work starting in mid September, but rent and food for the first is a problem. I have lived in my apt for seven years and never missed a dime of rent. I have contacted many organizations to no avail. Any help, no matter how small will help so much . I have some money and food toward this issue but need to raise a bit more. I am a55 years old year old male, no drugs, no alchol. I have a degree in history and one year of law school, yet cant get a job as a dishwasher.! I am very able bodied and will consider any offers for work to help me or any sugg. as to my situation. Very willing to contribute, work etc for help now. Thanks for reading this. I will have no internet connection soon .Just talking to other pet peolple will help. Thanks for your time.

My name is *************, a 22 year old female I know a lot people but ads up because they want and want and will take and take. I want everyone to know right off that is not what I’m trying to do. I just want help I am a well put together person, kind hearted and full of life, I love to volunteer and give whatever I can and whenever I can. I’m struggling to find my way I have many dreams and goals I would love to accomplish but see them slowly, fading away. I live with a friend and that’s the hardest thing for me because I never had to do something such as this I’m very independent at least I use to. I hate that I can’t do anything to help because I have no income and no transportation it kills me. I would like to go to school to become a Police Officer so I can help try to make this world a better place. I just want to find a job were I can make money to provide for myself and to give back to my friend that has helped me with no complaints. I just want to be able to work and go back to school get some type of income and a way of transportation. I have put in countless application near by I live so I can walk but I still have no luck and I will not give up. I have thought about using the public library as a source to help me attend school but the limit on a computer isn’t enough. I’m not sure what to do or where to go from here if you can help or have any advice as to what I can do to change my life around please feel free to email me at ***************** . Thank you for your time and have a bless day!
I suppose we are all going to have to gather on street corners and beg from each other. What a sad world this is when able bodied people are beggers and the needy and handicapped are left to beg on the corner? I'm going to go weep for our lost nation and values.
