That Had To Cost A Lot In Gas To Get There



The R and R blog (who has basically made me give up posting celebrity crap since he/she gets to it before me) had this gem from a day or so ago. Is that the Decatur-Beggar-In-A-Tie hanging out in Haltom City? R and R says "yes, it is."

He's the guy that's gonna build the new indoor practice facility for the Decatur football team now that the bond issue passed, I think.

Well I hope the preacher comment was a joke but if not thats awesome! Would explain why hes always wearing his Sunday best in front of the Dollar Store. Reckon he gets hot with them long sleeves on? LOL. No but seriously... I wonder if hes hiring? I can do a pretty mean"Dont I look pathetic and worhtless" look if I try. Just kidding, what a pathetic excuse for life. Wow! I hope he strikes it rich if someone is dumb enough to fall for his shisty ways. Amazing!

I have a lot more respect for this guy now. At least he is not sitting (or standing as it may be) on his ass in Decatur waiting on a handout. He is hitting all markets. Entrepenuership at its finest!

That's the guy who always shouts "Free Tex Watson". I think he's part of that aboundinglove.org ministry.

If he is a preacher, he is a small scale Kenneth Copeland.

That's him. I've seen him off of Basswood in Ft Worth.

R&R is a SHE, for gawd's sake! Haven't you paused to look at her pic? Take one second to be plugged in to, um, someone other than yourself, Dear. =)

7:17, Yes, yes he does. He's the guy who used to sell junk in front the old garage apartment on 718. I can't remember his name. Could it be Berney?

That's NOT him.

anobiter, I've looked at her picture and I don't think it was born a woman.

Now I'm pissed!!
Yep, that's him!!
So now we know his game, he roams from town to town playing the pity party and taking the free ride. I remember a while back when 20/20 did a piece on these types of people in California. It ended up they drove nicer cars (parked down the street and around a corner) than the people giving them the money. Most of their homes were nicer as well. These people even admitted they were doing it because they didn't want to work and could make more money in most instances. The next time I see him I think I'll wave and ask him if business was slow in Haltom City. It's apparent now that it's working for him. He has used the same sign for two years, still hasn't obtained a job but he's still there. Most would say well this isn't working out here I think I will go somewhere else. But, he's still showing up for a reason. Decatur P.D. needs to move him on down the road.

Yes thats him! I stopped one time and asked the man if he would like a job for hte day which was helping me to clean out my storage building and garage. I didnt need the help but i felt sorry for the guy and offered anyway. TO my suprise he said NO THANK U!! I guess cash is king with the low lifes of the earth.

For those concerned... I am a full fledged girlie girl. Don't let my funky hair fool ya.

My family and I had so much fun watching this old man. A big thank you goes out to my 12 year old nephew who hid in the bushes and acted like a celebrity photog to get the shot.

After watching this guy for at least 25 minutes, I'm telling you WE ARE ALL IN THE WRONG BUSINESS.

There was an expose on these types of "beggars" on the news a couple of years ago. One guy in Plano was making a little over $300,000.00 per year doing this. What a business.

That old fool used to go in the local convenience stores and spend hundreds of dollars purchasing scratch-off tickets. Then he would just stand at the counter and scratch every single one!

Welcome to Newark!!!

R&R, that is FUNNY! I didn't know Barry had stolen an original! Cute story on scoring the pic.

OK - here's an idea - the next day he's in Decatur, let's all offer him a job - lots of 'em, and report back here, or better yet, call NBC5 and get their investigative reporters out here.

I think that he is doing a report on the kindness of people in certain communities...

10:28, I wish that were the case. But as a resident of Newark, I can assure you it isn't. This good-for-nothing vagrant has been living off the good citizens of this community for YEARS! I know this gentleman quite well.

No my friend, Bernie's just "expanding his empire" so to speak. I guess he's milked all of us dry...
