NYC: Moochers Paradise

Thanks to Nanny Bloomberg and its location in America’s least free state, New York City is as close to hell as anywhere in the USA if you believe in freedom. But it is paradise for moochers, who arrive from all over the world to live easy in homeless shelters on other people’s money.

“People pay $3,000 for an apartment here, and I get to live here for free!” said Michal Jablonowski, 25, who moved back to the city from his native Poland three years ago and is now staying in a Bowery shelter.

“I have food. I have health care. It’s great,’’ Jablonowski said. “Here, the city supports you. The city helps you with everything. …

“The shelters are really nice. You have clean sheets. You get to watch TV and stay in the warm. Homeless people have it so good, they don’t want to look for a job.’’

Free room and board are only the beginning. Jablonowski also has a free cell phone and plans to get his teeth fixed at taxpayers’ expense.

He is hardly the only welfare tourist to take a bite of the Big Apple.

Nearly one in four of the city’s single homeless people who entered the system in December 2012 listed their last address as outside the city. …

Taxpayers shell out $3,000 a month to feed, house and provide other services to each homeless person. The average stay in a city shelter is as long as nine months — although there’s no limit.

“Some people in here have it better than people working 9 to 5, because they’re not paying rent. I’ve stayed in hostels worse. I call this four stars,” said William Sullivan, who came to the city from LA for a job that fell through.

“Everyone in this place has a silver spoon in their mouth. You get fed three to four meals a day, and the food here is great.”

A Michigan woman who arrived in December said she was drawn to New York for the “adventure.”

“New York is New York! That’s why people come here,” said Amy Kaufman, 41, who is staying in a city-funded Chelsea shelter.

“I go to the library, and I go sightseeing a lot in Times Square and Chelsea. I like it here.

Taxpayers don’t. New Yorkers lead the country in paying taxes. There is no such thing as a free lunch.

  • moochers are real

    Note: The southern states that reliably vote GOP receive more money than they lay in taxes. In other words, Mississippi and Alabama are the moochers, and NY and Chicago and LA are paying for those broke-ass people.

    Sure, there are shelters in NYC. But if you want to whine about moochers for real… we need to cut off all government funds to the south. Once and for all.

  • moochers are real

    Clearly factual, ladies…

    Highest percentage of population getting gov’t benefits: NYC? Nope. Mississippi. Then Louisiana. Alabama. (What? Not California or NY? Wow. It’s almost like poor stupid people vote against their own best interests over and over, and that we New Yorkers are actually cool with paying our taxes to prevent people from dying in the streets. Notice how the population of NYC continues to rise? Notice how that is also true in Cali – also a high-tax, high-return state? Notice how the south is still full of poor folks who need government bennies they then hate?

    Whatever. We like NY. We don’t care about the taxes, when the alternative is starvation and frozen corpses in the streets.

    Love how the liberal atheist types are way more empathetic about our fellow man than the jesus-is-magic subset. Make sure you shit all over the poor! Jesus would want it that way!

  • Dr.9

    Actually, this proves something i’ve been saying for a long time. Most so-called “homeless or street people” are there by choice and not necessity. For the most part, these people tend to be con-artists and “super-hustlers”, and get along just fine on their street-smarts. In fact, they do better than many who live so-called normal lives, so don’t feel bad for them.

  • moochers are real

    … and yet, it is still the greatest city in America. The wealthiest, the most culture, the most going on in general… not to mention the most opportunity. More jobs here than in whole flyover states combined.

    Notice how even with Nanny B in charge, we all still live here? It’s almost like the south still blows sheep in comparison!

    The lunatic fringe has been predicting the end of NYC forever. And still, it exists. Not changing anytime soon.

    In the spirit of ‘what if the welfare stops flowing’, however… if the southern hick states stopped getting all of the massive subsidies from the feds… they would have to be more or less abandoned completely. Abolish those agricultural subsidies. Remove the social safety nets that disproportionately keep the incredibly poor afloat (sorry, Mississippi…). Eliminate Medicare (highest diabetes rate in America? Die already!).

    And we will still live in NY, still loving life, ans still laughing at you for your sky-is-falling tinfoilhattery.

  • Clint Beastwood

    Always cracks me up when some libtard confuses paying exorbitant taxes with charity, then claim they ‘give’ more lol…

    Idiot, you pay more, whether you like it or not. You probably don’t -willingly- give anything.

  • moochers are real

    Incorrect, Clint…

    NYC isn’t a moocher’s paradise… it is just a regular paradise. It is America’s best city (and among the best in the world). There is more culture in any given neighborhood here than there is in all of the south, combined. We know it, and that is why we are here.

    Charity, in this instance, is the willingness to be a part of NYC – despite the tax rate – knowing that it is in fact a part of being here. In other words, we would rather pay for the homeless shelters and be here than pay 4% less but have to live in the hick-flyover-country parts of the USA.

    Your southern bible-belt places are less attractive than all of the tax rates and homeless shelters you can imagine. Which is why despite your insistence that NYC is dooooomed, people still come here, spend money, create jobs, and do all of other things that just aren’t happening in the red southern states.

    Wonder what that says about the south…

  • moochers are real

    Wow. So in addition to having zero in the way of culture, or economic achievement (let alone things like academic attainment or sufficient dentition) you are also loud and angry. I think I will go ahead and skip the invite, despite all of the obvious entertainment we would get from seeing you in a real city.

    Yep. This is my shock that – despite the tax rate – people like NYC way more than the hillfolk south. Keep trying old man, keep trying… for the moment, NYC better than you, despite having homeless people.

    Sadly hospitals are slowly turning into housing as well. Except this is costing more than $3k/month. The ER has become a revolving door for those who are gaming the system.

    If you wondered why the population might rise there, it’s because the “oh so cultured” (read that as suicidal) high taxpaying subjects (not citizens) are so eager to hand out free money. You wouldn’t believe the house you could get in my town for $3k/mo, and this is one of the high rent districts. I’m talking free standing single family 5BR 4BA 3 car garage and a yard. Culture? I wouldn’t trade ya. You may not be in the anus of the world, but you can smell it from there.

    Ya gotta love the anti-South hate from the hipster douchebag from NYC, one of the sorriest places I ever had the misfortune in which to live.

    The only people more provincial than New Yorkers are Bostonians, though anywhere on the left coast and The Detroit of the Pacific are tied for third.

  • BoJangles

    I’d be willing to bet “moochers are real” is a young leftist from Manhattan, most likely gay, who has probably never had a real job, and either lives off mommy and daddy, or the streets. His/it’s obvious delusion gives that fact away. Anyone who actually has to go to work in NYC hates it.

    So… what have we learned? NYC is a great place to live despite offering homeless shelters, and that while the south still has homeless people, and people on welfare, and toothless hicks… the south also offers no culture to go along with it.

    NYC win. Hick fail. As is so very often the case.

    Yeah, NYC is really a great place alright. Giuliani finally came along and started arresting criminals and the crime rate for the entire country dropped significantly. What does that tell you about NYC? Well, at least Bloomer hasn’t started ENCOURAGING criminals just yet, but wait until he get bored with bullying people on their eating habits. Try taking an evening walk in Central Park and see what happens. Hell, I remember when a young woman was raped and left for dead in Central Park by a liberal mob of Louis Feralcoon monkeys. Who got the sympathy? Liberal lawyers and media went into a frenzy to get the rapists off. Oh, the CULTURE!!! Where else can you see works of art by such cultural icons as Andres Serrano who thinks that high art consists of a plastic of Jesus in a jar of piss? Hey, the street bums get three hots and a cot for doing nothing, but what do hurricane survivors get? Not so much the way I hear it. Hell, it’s more important to run a marathon. Bloomer can always accuse Bush of blowing up the dikes. Give me a break.

  • Adam

    Hick/ real,
    You are proving YOU are the one truly ignorant. Literally all you have are baseless stereotypes that you feel apply to all of us just because of what part of the country you think we live in. Let’s address some of your ignorance.
    “Love how the liberal atheist types are way more empathetic about our fellow man than the jesus-is-magic subset. Make sure you shit all over the poor! Jesus would want it that way!”
    Ah, starting with the favorite BS argument for ultra- liberal Communist/ Socialists to use: If you’re opposed to mandatory wealth redistribution by the government, it means you’re automatically a greedy, heartless miser who would never do anything to help the needy.
    First off, as others here have noted, studies show that conservatives tend to greatly exceed liberals in terms of generosity towards charities. The thing is, conservatives believe in helping the less fortunate through voluntary donations to charity and other acts of generosity purely out of one’s own free will, rather than through having the government force people to do so. Even Dick Cheney, the man ultra- liberals view as evil incarnate, donated nearly all of his salary as vice president to a wide list of worthy charities.
    Second, when Katrina hit New Orleans, who was it that traveled hundreds of miles to get there and waded through raw sewage to get food, clean water, medical supplies, etc., to the survivors? It wasn’t the government agencies that were too busy tripping over their own feet to actually help anyone. It wasn’t the “Liberal atheist types,” either. It was the volunteers from church groups and other Christian charitable orgnizations (The sorts of people you’d unoubtedly refer to as “Jesus is magic, flyover hillfolk”) who offered up their time, money, and resources to help the people who had lost so much, because they knew Christ had called on them to do so.
    Third, to give a more personal example, here are some of the ways that I myself, a supposedly greedy, heartless right winger, have helped serve the needy (Please note that I do not bring these up to brag or make it seem like I’m some awesome saint, I know others who’ve done much more than I have, and only God deserves the credit for what I’ve done, I merely bring them up to prove how full of crap you are regarding conservatives’ supposed attitudes toward the less fortunate):
    I’ve regularly donated to blood drives for the past nine years, most recently this last Saturday, even though I barely had time to do so yet still get to work on time.
    I’ve regularly helped at soup kitchens and a kitchen/ distribution center for the homeless.
    Although I am far from wealthy, I have made monetary donations to a variety of worthy charities such as Habitat for Humanity.
    As an intern working for my church’s youth program, I am currently working on a sermon/ message to be given at a Sunday night youth service in a couple weeks, which will focus on how their reaching out to help the needy is a way of showing the world they are followers of Jesus. It will be partly done to help them prepare for a lock-in I’ll be helping to lead in a couple weeks, in which we’ll have a 24- hour fast as a show of solidarity with hungry and needy people, then spend a couple hours preparing bagged lunches to be distributed among the poor in our city.
    But, yeah, conservatives like me are all REALLY selfish, evil monsters who hate the poor and would never lift a finger to help them! LOL!
    “… and yet, it is still the greatest city in America. The wealthiest, the most culture, the most going on in general”
    The greatest city in America, what with its massive homeless population, its horrific crime rate (Try walking through Central Park at night to get an idea of its ‘Culture’), and everything!
    “Do you all really hate the idea of culture so much?

    The Met, the opera, the symphony, the theatre district, the food, the architecture, the seething mass of humanity all going about the business of life…

    All to be derided by the flyover hillfolk, who wouldn’t know Bizet from a cow mooing in the yard.”
    1. I have no problem with the arts. I love my city’s Philharmonic, and find the Albin Pulasek Museum and Sculpture Garden that I occasionally see to be one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been to.
    2. “The food”? Enjoy it while you can, before Bloomberg finishes waging his war on everything that tastes good.
