    Sure, if the money is held in trust until completion of the task. :)

    I often give money to panhandlers.

    But the most I ever give is a dollar.

    I tend to only give money to panhandlers if they're doing something entertaining, and if he were to actually punch Glenn Beck in the mouth, that's more entertaining than any homeless guy I've seen playing an instrument or beatboxing on the street.

    I'd give him an airline ticket and get him there and arrange for him to meet Beck...

    For some reason, this reminds me of a woman who used to stand at the same busy intersection in Memphis for a while with signs saying "Need money to visit family is Hawaii"..."Need money to visit family in Jamaica"..."Need money to visit family in Fiji"..."Need money to visit family in The Bahamas". The location changed every few weeks, and was always some super-tropical destination.

    Wouldn't it be much cheaper to hire a local? An ad on Craigslist maybe?

    I'd give him the airline ticket and a couple of hundred bucks of expenses.. If he did it in a public place where I could film it happening.

    I think we can safely assume that this individual is a Democrat, which makes it rather ironic that a member of the so-called party of peace and tolerance would advocate violence against a talk show host. This unique flavor of hypocrisy and malice seems to be par for the course though, at least amongst many outspoken leftists these days. It's a sad and pathetic state of affairs when the left has "their guy" in the oval office, and still feels the need for personal attacks against those who voice a dissenting opinion.

    I'm sure he can find 256 more people like you.

    Because Democrats are incapable of violence?

    That's almost as ridiculous a notion as Republicans being incapable of compassion.

    I answered yes, simply because I always appreciate the beggers putting some satire into their begging.

    Good job :)

    Maybe he did before becoming homeless, and realized what a bunch of crap that guy spewed only after his lost his job and house.
