Ok... this may not be the most politically correct topic - lol. AND I ASK IN A LIGHT-HEARTED WAY - where have you encoutered the smelliest homeless. We can all pick on the homeless, after all in this "ObamaNation" we are fighting back STRONGLY AGAINST, New Jersey is NOW a REPUBICAL STATE (unheard of) and many many more.

But I have traveled about 15 states in the US, and two island countries. I know with absolute certainy that the homeless in WASHINGTON, DC around the subway (more prevailent around Smithsonian through Dupont Circle stops.

I was there in 2001 with Fred (young man I mentored then) we stayed in Chevy Chase, Maryland and had an easy 10 minute subway ride to nearly anywhere in DC.

We got only this one car, and it was October, and this homeless guy was 4 rows behind us and on the other side of the train - he smelled of death, like a body you'd find 10 days after they died in a house with no AC - yuck.

I scooped Fred by the arm, moved as far forward as we could away, we got off at the next stop and waited for the next train - it was like the chiller in an autopsy room went out on Friday night, and you walked in on Monday morning (hope that ain't too graphic  tongue) just trying to share my trip - lol.

So, we have several people who travel and everyone who may have an opinion as I do about what tourists are in suprise for - and that is only on sense, imagine all of the going off at the smell of the dead guy on the train who walked and talked as we do - I can't imagine how long he had worn those 4 coats he was wearing, I saw the stench of sweat ver body odor or months - it was quite traumaic for me - joking of course.

So our nations Capitol has the smelliest homeless I have come across, but it is unfair, there is rarely 2 per subway escalator, one is a young mom with a baby in her arm and the other in a carrage. The second homeless is a guy, he has no skill, can't even say thank you if someone did put a dollar in his can. These kinda folks are everywhere though, I'm sure everyone in every fieldd (somewhere) would also near rock bottom.

Sad thing is though (I read this years ago now) the average subway begger in DC earns about $130,000 a year and could easily rent a brown stone apartment and live in luxury - where does that money go - man.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I can't recall encountering any homeless but I have encountered people with a stench of epic proportions just about everywhere, one of the reasons I avoid section 8 transportation ( buses, trolleys, trains, and cabs, even airlines  Lips Sealed ) I frequent conventions where it's just shoulder to shoulder people, you're bound to wind up next to a stinker.

I don't run into many homeless here, there are some I just don't wind up where they are.
So- naming it 'Dignity' will confer some on the place huh?
I think if I was faced with stepping up to that kind of dignity I'd opt for the woods.

I don't have contact with any homeless, but I do know that when my boys take their shoes off I'm ready to move to a train car, and that is starting out from in the house! rolleyes

I've travelled in many states - and many states of mind - and, after some serio-comic deliberative comparisons, using a Smell-o-Scale ranking of 1 - 10 (10 being the "puking before, during, and after the trigger event"), I have to vote for DC. Even the parks of New York can't make me shudder and dry-heave like the memories of our nation's Crapital.

Never really been around any homeless people.
When I was little Dad had a family that would work around the farm for us. It was a mother, two brothers, and a sister all living in the same house with the dogs, cats and chickens. They had no running water and only bathed when the lake got warm enough until it got too cold.
They always put out a tobbacco patch and hung it in our barn to cure, when winter came it was handed off and readied for market. Now my Dad was one that did not want anybody to get cold so I always had to dress like it was 40 below, and the heater in the truck always had to be on high. With that said we load the tobbacco baskets in the back of the truck and onto the trailer and head for the warehouse about 25 miles away. I'm in the middle with the heater on high blowing right on my feet and legs, sweating like a pig. Dad on the left of  me driving and going kind of slow, since we are pulling a loaded trailer, and puffing as hard as he can on a cheap cigar. The windows were not allowed to be rolled down since we would catch a chill and have pneumonia in 10 seconds acording to the old timers. Sitting on my right would always be Carl, has not had a bath since maybe October and it is now end of December or first of January and he has a pretty good sweat going also.

WHEW WEE I would always be so glad to get out of that truck.

Not real sure how I did it but I think I held my breath the whole way.

AAAHHHHH the good ole days of years gone by.

Well, I have travelled a bit in Asia, and on this side of the world – I would have to say in India they smelled the worst.  They hung out at the touristy temples and as near to restaurants and hotels as they were allowed to approach and begged for food, money – well anything.  During the dry season their hair was a matted mess.  They looked and smelled much like a long haired dog on a beef farm that had just found a dead skunk who just happened to die in a pile of cow dung, and couldn’t resist a roll in it.  I have smelled better smelling homeless on the streets who had just soiled themselves than these poor beggers.  Purely nauseating - from any distance.
