My response to the Washington Post Article:

http://bit.ly/bw63Rp

Here comes the first of the stories that will inundate America for months unless we chose to speak out about more and more people who are loosing benefits, homes, hope, faith in this Country.

Please contact your local news paper(s), congress people, anyone you can think of. More and more people are falling off the unemployment statistics making them invisible to everyone. Except to those who want them anywhere but in their towns, want them to have no food or help from groups nongovernmental or governmental. The people who are screaming about the lowering of property values from "bums" walking around or trying to catch a little sleep.

They are called smelly and dirty. They are. They have no where to bathe or clean their clothes. They are called parasites who are sucking "us" dry because they are lazy and don't want to work. They are called disgusting because they dumpster dive for food so they don't starve.  The are called crazy and they should be locked up.  Spend a year on the streets and then talk about all of the above.

What will those very Unchristians people say when their families their friends and they themselves wind up on the streets? Will they insist they aren't like "those people"? I'm sure they will.  What will they say about getting a job when they can't keep themselves and their clothes clean? What will they say when they try to get help at all those government agencies who's budget they radically cut, who they wanted closed and they are turned away because "we just don't have the funds any more?"

All of the "jobs" that are allegedly being taken by illegal aliens aren't taken by  Americans when they fall open but that will change. Scrubbing toilets for minimum wage is better than the alternatives.

I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take anymore. When someone starts blaming illegals and lazy people who don't want to work, I will give them facts and figures. When politicians say what ther polls say they should instead of the truth I will speak out with facts and figures.

The citizens of Orlando have a temporary victory. Charity groups can no longer feed homeless people in parks. Seems that the people around the parks are more worried about property values than helping other human beings.

When more of those good upstanding citizens loose their jobs, and any unemployment they may get for a short time, they're going to be hoping someone give them something to eat. When their "friends" turn them away because they can't be seen with a failure, what then?

When more people are on the street than in homes due in part at least to the lack of charity and compassion in this land what then? When parents and children walk the streets because there is no place for them what then?

When mothers and fathers watch their children slowly dying from starvation in a nation that throws out more food than some countries have total what then?

It seem to me that people are being driven to a French revolutionary solution.

The right wingers want to go back to Biblical law just like the Founding Fathers wanted this country to be (except for some strange reason they didn't use biblical law in creating the Declaration or the Constitution this country) what then?

All the women who worked for this to happen from Sara Palin on down will be at home with their hair covered. Slaves to the men who conned them into fighting for a system meant to return them to the status of something men own. What then?

We have learned, a bit to late in the day, that action springs not from thought but from a readiness for responsibility.....Silenc e in the face of evil is of itself evil.  Not to speak is to speak.  Not to act is to act.
