"Busking is government approved mooching. There is no business that standing on a corner asking for people's loose change that can be condoned. I respect the addition of performing a talent to try and get my change, but if you have an applicable skill in the arts there are plenty of ways to go about it that don't involve mooching."
"...a guitar in your hand does not make you different than the ex vet with crutches in smelly clothes asking for my change."
"...we need to SELL ourselves. Not live on the handouts and scraps of passer bys"
"Get a job, practice your arts diligently, and you will be a star."
"On a side note, as a business owner wouldn't want them in front of my business doing that. It's like condoning tagging, and when you catch the tagger doing it you give them some loose change. You don't pay for street art in any form."
So I spoke my mind in the comments of another person's Facebook post. Let me know what you think in the comments of this post.
