Default Free Beer and Hot Wings FTMFW!!!

Our local ABC (WZZM 13Video here: http://bcove.me/z5hq2gqj) station ran a story about panhandling in W. Michigan,
apparently, the guys at 97.9 WGRD feel the same way I do about the assneck panhandler Rudy featured in Wzzm's story and others like him.



Yesterday, we introduced you to Rudy, a panhandler who was lying bout being a homeless veteran.
Free Beer and Hot Wings sent Producer Joe down to the corner that Rudy was working on with a huge sign that said “LIAR ->” Rudy was not amused.
Since Joe’s stunt, Rudy has moved to a different corner and is hopefully getting little to no money now. But, the story doesn’t end there.

This morning, Joe went down to the same corner to panhandle for himself.
But, all of the money Joe collected would go to the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans.
Joe collected $1,085 from generous listeners throughout the morning.
Free Beer and Hot Wings decided to double that number by pitching in themselves, bringing the grand total to $2,170 donated to the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans.


You can watch Producer Joe with his awesome sign here:

to the guys at WGRD!

They're all over the damn place around here.
Plumbs, Meijer, Wallyworld, in intersections and at the on/off ramps.
This town has MANY programs for people in need and for those who have substance abuse problems. All they have to do is put as much effort into asking for the available help as they do into begging.
on the Supreme Court for saying its legal for them to harass us for the few dollars we work our asses off for!

As a Veteran, I feel disgusted about their able to panhandle and get away with false advertising. Myself am unemployed with 0 income coming in for 2 months, now at the point of not being able to pay bills, been looking for work but the force of the unemployed is still high and tough to find work. I will continue looking for work over becoming a worthless bum lying to the general public.

When I was in high school, we watched a show on homeless people in my government class. They were all in major cities like D.C. and New York. They talked to a couple "homeless" people. They said they were making anywhere from $40K to $50K a year tax free. Since seeing that, I refuse to give any person on the side of the road any money. I even saw one guy in Detroit get into a fairly nice car (i think at the time it was maybe a 5-10 year old Mercedes with rims) after pan handling outside of a concert.

I hate the show but good for them. Nice to see Joe supporting the local band "Wayland" as well.

Exactly....I've never understood why people choose to stand outside begging for money instead of looking for a job. There are jobs out there, even if it's min wage it's better than nothing. But I guess why should they? People give them money and apparently enough to make up to 50K a year, tax free

The only people I give money on the street are hookers and anyone that is taking donations for a cause, like boyscouts, veterans, etc
