Have you ever talked to the homeless? A strange idea to most of us that are too busy with our lives. Many of the homeless had normal lives once. Some where store managers in places like south Chicago, Boisey Idahoe and even Lincoln Nebraska. Others had once thriving business’s that are now just a memory. Most had wives and children. Many children are now homeless along with their parents.
On a hot day they will sit and talk about their former lives. Now that they are homeless practically no one will hire them. So sitting and talking about better times is the bulk of their entertainment. Like most americans many are intellegent and have opinions about the news of the day. The talk ranges from obscure topics like comic books of the eighties to solar flares. It is not the deranged talk of uninformed as many in the press would have you believe. These people once ran companies where managers, sales people in short ordinary Americans. The only diffirence between them and you is the sadness. After they talk about their former lives they often walk away dispondent. A dazed look on their faces as they ask themselves again how did this happen to me? They still can’t believe with all of their skills they are now in a homeless shelter. All over America this is happening. Brave people are dealing with being homeless.
I wish our politicians had the guts that these people have. The soft bellied Politicians that sent American jobs overseas are responsible for this. The politicians that to this day let big oil bleed us dry with high gas prices are responsible for this. The politicians that gave billions of dollars to wealthy companies for no reason are responsible for this.
I have a solution. Elections …
