PHILADELPHIA—A ban on feeding the homeless in Philadelphia’s parks takes effect Friday.

The city moved in March to ban community and church groups from distributing meals to the homeless in public spaces, including the area of Benjamin Franklin Parkway, where many of Philadelphia’s museums are located.

[…]
Mayor Michael Nutter says the city wants to get the homeless indoors where they can get medical and other services.
[…]
Signs have been posted prohibiting outdoor feeding. Repeat violators are subject to $150 fines.

    “Signs have been posted prohibiting outdoor feeding.” – what are they animals at a zoo or something?!?! Give me a break already these people are human being for christ sake!

    Did you see the great support OBOMBA gave to labor in Wisconsin? I can’t wait to hear what excuses my Union makes up for him as to why he didn’t give his “SUPPORT” on this issue – and then they’ll proceed to tell us why we need to get him elected again – and then I’ll blow my brains out in frustration.

    • Hello Al, thanks for the comment! With every passing year and with the steady decline of the trade unions – due to the union leadership’s faith in the capitalist system and their futile attempt at “partnering” with the bosses – the capitalist politicians in both parties have less and less reason to pander to the trade unions. The phony “friends of labor” mask is coming off the Democrats for even the most stubborn union supporters of the Democratic Party to see. It’s Time to Dump the Democrats! No union money should be wasted on another Democratic Party election campaign! We need a party of our own! Join the Independent Workers Party!
