~ TODAY’S TRAVEL TIPS

DEALING WITH BEGGARS

I have never saw a beggar in my home city,
but have found them to be common
in the rest of the world.

Just a note:
The friendliest beggars I have
ever met are in Montreal Canada. Very polite.

BEGGAR RULES.

WHO IS QUALIFIED?
I give to these ones.

1. MISSING BODY PARTS
That do not have or are missing body
parts. A leg, an arm, or some other part.

2. TOO OLD TO WORK.
There are very very old people with no money.
This is the responsibility of the country.
But I do give very old people money.
I will be old someday also.

3. FOOD BEGGARS
I am not talking about money.
Say you have a piece of bread in your hands.
A person looks at you and wants you to share it
or give them some. I share.

4. SPECIAL CRAZY
There are those people that are so crazy
they do not know how to take care of themselves.
I saw a guy in Otavalo Ecuador who was in shorts,
freezing, and sitting on the sidewalk. I saw this man
daily. He never asked for money or food.
I gave him some food. I am not sure he would
know what to do with money.

5. MAIMED ON PURPOSE
I am told that in some places the people cripple
or maim their children on purpose. I would not give.
It would only make them do it to another, and another
and another. But think on this one.
Tell me ideas.

MISCELLANEOUS RULES OR IDEAS

1. Giving money to people make or creates
beggars.
2. Do not give money to people that do not
ask for money. That is an insult.
3. If you want to give money to someone.
Buy something from them. There is pride in
this type of business. Maybe you will pay
just a little too much, or your offer will be just
a little too high.
4. Do not give to OBNOXIOUS beggars.
That just encourages them to be obnoxious.
5. Do not do the job of the government.
Lots of countries rely on the world to take
care of their people. There is enough money in
all countries if they share the wealth.
6. If the person comes into a restaurant to
beg at your table. Never give.
7. Doubling up on you.
Hitting you up daily.
Wanting a daily beg.
Give to the beggars only one time.
Unless you want to live with them.
8. Do not trust a beggar.
Poor does not mean they are honest.
9. There is nothing noble about being a beggar.
10. Now...
Give me some money.... Idea number 3

SAVE THE WORLD
There are people that need taken care of
and helped. In the developed countries the
government takes care of their people.

If you see an old person begging.
That usually means the government of the
country is not taking care of that person.
Complain about this country to everyone.
The United Nations, and their government included..

What the world needs most is a
good retirement plan.
(Aha... Also a map, maybe mufflers
on all vehicles. a.k.a. World Peace.)
Presently the best way to retire is to have 10
children. One of them will take care of you...
Maybe?

Wonder why there is population growth
in underdeveloped countries?
No retirement plan.

HELP my research.
I have been trying to locate a list countries
that have some form or retirement or benefits like
“Social Security” or “Medicaid.”
and the list of countries that does not?
A way for old people to guarantee they have money
that is sponsored by the GOVERNMENT.
I am NOT looking for private pension plans.
Please put in the letter to editor.
