I feel very sad for the Americans
Economic despair is beginning to spread rapidly in America. As you read this, there are millions of American families that are just barely hanging on by their fingernails. For a growing number of Americans, it has become an all-out battle just to be able to afford to sleep under a roof and put a little bit of food on the table. Sadly, there are more people than ever that are losing that battle. Tonight, tens of thousands of formerly middle class Americans will be sleeping in their cars, even though that is illegal in many U.S. cities. Tens of thousands of others will be sleeping in tent cities or on the streets. Meanwhile, communities all over America are passing measures that are meant to push tent cities and homeless people out of their areas. It turns out that once you lose your job and your home in this country you become something of an outcast. Sadly, the number of “outcasts” is going to continue to grow as the U.S. economy continues to collapse.

Ever wonder why so many homeless people converge in the downdown and inner cities, like in Los Angeles? Other small towns around the state, tell those about to goto jail, either goto jail, or take a one way ticket on a Greyhound bus that lets them off in the downdown terminal for Greyhound bus lines. They dump them into big cities. They want the burden of jailing them off their budgets and its cheaper to just get them out of town. Towns have been driving the Riff-Raff out of town for centuries. "Get out of town, and don't ever come back".
That is the sad truth, why so many homeless are in the big cities in the downtown areas.
This is a serous issue, what we are doing with the homeless in America. Its very common now for families to have others move in, due to no place to go. In the last month one neighbor wanted to by my kids trailer parked in my yard, and another lady stopped and asked aobut it telling me she was almost homeless and had no place to go. Many are forclosed on, and living out of a car. Many just took off with motorhomes and trailers, and parking them all over, which has become another problem. We have ordinances to control those who just find a parking place and live. They dump the waste out of their brown line in the gutter and move on. Basically the neighbor has to let both kids and their families, and living in a trailer is totally illegal. Thats why the zoning is called single family dwellings. Many people have guest houses, but they are not legal to rent out, mainly becasue they are not allowed to have kitchens in them. They were intended for aged parents to have separate living quarters, however the NO kitchen part was part of the zoning, because a full live in house would be considered 2 on a lot, not single family dwellings.
Some how I think that if the USA is in this kind of trouble, many other countries are also in big economic trouble. If the USA collapses, it will affect the entire world, so for all those wishing the USA fails, I hope they don;t get their wish.
One thing I wish could be true Tichan, if there reallly is $6 tillion dollars to spend on a war, I'd like to see it put to jobs in this country over the next decade just rebuilding infrastructure in this country. If that ends up a racket, so what, it will put people to work. Bridges, utility issues, road repairs, many things are outdated and could provided jobs. The old WPA work projects of the Roosevelt ERa helped get us out of the depression.
