Missourians have no money to hand out because all of their money goes to high taxes and outrageous water bills. Not hard to figure that one out. It will get worse in joco.

The Joco solution to this problem has always been to give them a ride to Missouri. Jackoffs!

I work downtown and there are homeless everywhere. Not because they don't have a place to stay but because they choose to live on the streets and not in shelters. They choose to live without regulations, rules, and where they can break the law. Where they can drink, do drugs, steal etc. A beggar asked me one day for change at 5th and Delaware. I asked him how much money he had made today and he said $6. He said it was enough to get him drunk for the next day or so. I told him if he really wants to make good money to take the JO bus to the end of the line and beg there. I told him people in Johnson County give $20 bills instead of change. Looks like the word has spread.
