Dallas city council - another one of those to be taught a lesson in humanity


The Dallas city council - yet another bunch of selfish, self-centered, holier-than-thou, cold hearted, self-righteous, communist oriented bastards,  need to be taught a big lesson in humanity as they live in their luxurous homes and drive their expensive cars and dine at the fanciest restaurants while the homeless are starving and in dire need of their help.  


When feeding the homeless becomes an act of civil disobedience, Americans have been asleep for far too long.

Luckily, however, there are still good people who are willing to defy such arbitrary and ill-conceived laws and ordinances.

The folks over at the aptly named organization Don’t Comply, took to the streets just outside the Austin Street Shelter in Dallas this weekend to perform what has now become a revolutionary act – feeding the homeless.

We are not complying with a bad law today,” Matthew Short, PR director of Don’t Comply said. “Evidently the city of Dallas believes that it’s wrong, or bad, or unlawful for us to feed more than a certain number of people at a time. But, during Christmas, we want to show love to our community and give these people a chance to survive the winter, whether it be with blankets or coats, or just giving them a holiday party like today with all kinds of cookies and goodies, turkey and dressing, and the whole nine yards.”

Last December, the Dallas city council enacted Ordinance No. 29595, which makes it illegal to serve food to the homeless without jumping through a statist myriad of bureaucratic hoops, including a fee, training classes, and written notices.  (Total BS - this is an inhumane ordinance and should be stricken immediately.)

One should not need to file multiple forms and pay a fee to obtain a permit to give food to those in need who are willingly ready to accept it. The folks at Don’t Comply know this.

According to Brett Sanders, hundreds of homeless people showed up to not only enjoy a fantastic array of food, snacks and beverages – but there was also an assortment of winter clothing that was donated as well.

“All of the homeless people that I talked to during the event were extremely grateful for the support and there was a sense of humanity that is indescribable. 

Interacting with other human beings whom most consider to be living life at rock bottom will likely alter your perspective on the world around you,” explained Sanders.

The event went off without a hitch, even after code enforcers showed up. Lead organizer of the event, Murdoch Pizgatti, was confronted by the enforcers who told him to file the proper paperwork upon the event’s conclusion to which, Pizgatti politely replied, “no.”

“We’ve already had to speak to the police.  They’ve already come and delivered code to us,” said Short, explaining what happened when the code enforcers showed up. “But, after shaking hands with them, they realized we’re all armed – and we’re gonna do what we’re gonna do because it’s not an immoral thing that we are doing.”

Below is the powerful video shot by Brett Sanders showing the powerful effects of such moral civil disobedience.

It should never be 'against the law' in these united States to feed or house or help the homeless in any way. We are brothers and sisters.  We are Americans. We are 'family.' Approximately between 40% and 45% of Americans are currently unemployed. Perhaps many more as it is well known that 'government' statistics are manipulated to make the results appear more palatable than reality. Many of the big corporations have closed down in America and, with millions and billions they were granted through the 'bailouts', and literally stole (Halliburton to Dubai), sent their businesses and jobs overseas. That's why many are losing jobs, cars, families, homes, savings, ability to obtain proper medical care, and lack of ability to be gainfully employed.  Many more will find themselves in this situation shortly. As Americans, we need to do everything we can to reach out and help others. That's the American way. The current corporations governments bent in denying help to the homeless is NOT the American way, but the Nazi way for free trips to the FEMA camps. We had better defy these 'laws' that we did not request nor know about nor authorize nor endorse and DEMAND that they be removed from the books NOW.  The next ones to be fed a meal and provided blankets may be YOU or ME.

Don't just disobey them; arrest them! Take the bastards out and make them live on the street, with no food or shelter, for just one week, and see how they like it.
