Standing in line marking time--
Waiting for the welfare dime
'Cause they can't buy a job
The man in the silk suit hurries by
As he catches the poor old ladies' eyes
Just for fun he says "Get a job"
That's just the way it is
Some things will never change
That's just the way it is
But don't you believe them
They say hey little boy you can't go
Where the others go
'Cause you don't look like they do
Said hey old man how can you stand
To think that way
Did you really think about it
Before you made the rules
He said, Son
That's just the way it is
Some things will never change
That's just the way it is
But don't you believe them
Well they passed a law in '64
To give those who ain't got a little more
But it only goes so far
Because the law won't change another's mind
When all it sees at the hiring time
Is the line on the color bar
That's just the way it is
Some things will never change
That's just the way it is
But don't you believe them

Maybe you should leave her alone . That's for her and her dignity. She's OK in my book. That's for her and her Family and not mine or your business.

Hate to bust your bubble achmed, but I am not the "infidel" here...you are. When you choose to pick on a mentally ill woman who is dying from cancer, who lives on the street and has had a life of suffering, you lower yourself to below a dog. I even hate to insult dogs because I own one who would be better to this poor soul than you could ever be. When you have to pick on defensless, misfortunate people, this makes you a weak and pathetic individual. It would be a good idea to keep little children away from you as you would probably bully them too.

This is obviously picking on her, especially when she soesn't have the means to respond to your wisecracks about her. You'd be the A-Hole in the silk suit telling her to "get a job" as spoken in those lyrics written by Bruce Hornsby.

Someone named "Ahmed." You really reflect well on your people. Yor appear to be for cowardly bombings, terrorism and fanaticalism. I'll bet you were cheering when 9-11 happened, coward. When your name is "Ahmed" during this day in age, you ought to be spreading good will towards others instead of poking fun at sick elderly women.
