Response to DemocratSinceBirth (Reply #32)

Fri Sep 6, 2013, 12:03 PM

34. I see dozens of homeless people every week where I live.

 

I don't bankrupt myself trying to save them.

Sure, feel bad, but we're not in a position to do any good, so it really doesn't matter how we feel.

If there were a viable plan to achieve an effective remedy, it would be one thing. But the alternatives are doing nothing, doing something meaningless yet counterproductive, or doing something really stupid.
