Do you give to Panhandlers?
I live in a medium sized city. During rush hour nearly every busy intersection has a person with a sign asking for money. I have been succesful in ignoring them. I am suspicious of their motives. But last week I was in a WalMart parking lot when a young women (14 or 15 years old) and asked me for $ so she could feed her small child. I gave her $2.00. My wife said I should have asked her questions. I'm worried that she used that $ for cigarettes (or worse)

Yes, I sometimes give my food, drink, and money to the homeless on the street. It is my opinion that they do need the food and the money.
No I don't give to panhandlers, isn't that what the government is taking my money for so that it can take care for them?
