Shaun has been saying this, and now Anonymous. How much more needs to happen before we wake up. Anon is right, this could be us tomorrow, seriously me tomorrow. We have all these vacant homes and charities willing to help, but we are turning into those futuristic cities where the ugly element is gotten rid of. Pay Attention!
Please pass this on. This is real. I know in Las Vegas, Nevada, when Mayor Oscar Goodman took over, he decided there would not be any homeless in the city limits of Las Vegas. All homeless arrested or made to leave the city limits, and from a few stories I heard, it was quite brutal for some. Then the homeless started appearing the more affluent areas of Clark County, in which the City of Las Vegas is part. I am not sure what the current local state of matters are, but his wife won the mayoral race and is now the Mayor of Las Vegas.
Like Shaun says, look these things up for yourself. Talk to those in other cities through social networking.

My mum steered me to an awesome new website today: NationSwell. The last story about depression, suicide, and men, was inspired by just one well written and informative piece from this web magazine. The sidebar offered many more stories which were about real people helping America. Then I read on to find out what the whole goal of the site was, and I am truly inspired to keep reading more and more pieces from this site. Here is just a part of the inspiration behind the site:
Like you, we are frustrated by Washington’s dysfunction and the fixation on it. We believe there is more to the story of America today – and if we shift the lens and look beyond Washington, we will discover that the solutions to our national challenges are all around us.
This one statement reflects so much of the sentiment I have read from fellow WP bloggers from America and from my FB friends. I hate the constant slamming of the government: it just seems to unproductive and really depressing. Since I am homebound, I feel totally despondent not being able to really act in a more direct manner to change things. I hope by spreading the word in many of the postings I do on WP and FB I am making a small difference. I really think the awareness of people and groups offered on the NationSwell web magazine will uplift those of us who do get so depressed and frustrated at America’s circumstances.
The magazine is free, although on each story there are places where one can donate to the specific cause. Here is just a sampling of some of the headlines offered right now:
Please just take a moment to check this magazine out, especially if you live in America. A very good read and well worth the time. I have read several of the articles, and have found them to be of good quality as to grammar, informational value, and concise.

TPP …. The 2005 Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership Agreement (TPSEP or P4) is a free trade agreement among Brunei, Chile, New Zealand, and Singapore.
It aims to further liberalize the economies of the Asia-Pacific region.
Since 2010, negotiations have been taking place for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a proposal for a significantly expanded version of TPSEP.
The TPP is a proposed free trade agreement under negotiation by (as of August 2013) Australia, Brunei, Chile, Canada, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, the United States, and Vietnam.
South Korea was asked by the US to consider joining the TPP but declined for the time being.
The TPP is ostensibly intended to be a “high-standard” agreement specifically aimed at emerging trade issues in the 21st century.
These ongoing negotiations have drawn criticism and protest from the public, advocacy groups, and elected officials, in part due to the secrecy…

I’m sure you remember our President referring to the Benghazi incident as “a bump in the road.” Today I heard an ex-Navy Seal being interviewed on Fox News regarding a book he has written about how to handle crisis situations in our lives. At the end of the interview he asked if he could make a comment on Benghazi and of course the anchor said yes. He then thanked Fox News for keeping the Benghazi story in the news, since other news organizations are not. He said the Seals who died deserve the public knowing the truth about the whole affair.
The following poem was written by a MARINE CORPS Officer (ANON)
THE BATTLING BOYS OF BENGHAZI
We’re the battling boys of Benghazi
No fame, no glory, no paparazzi.
Just a fiery death in a blazing hell
Defending our country we loved so well.
It wasn’t our job, but we answered the call,
Fought to the Consulate and scaled the wall.
We pulled twenty Countrymen from the jaws of fate
Led them to safety, and stood at the gate.
Just the two of us, and foes by the score,
But we stood fast to bar the door.
Three calls for reinforcement, but all were denied,
So we fought, and we fought, and we fought ’til we died.
We gave our all for our Uncle Sam,
But Barack Obama didn’t give a damn.
Just two dead seals who carried the load
No thanks to us…we were just “Bumps In The Road”.
So will this reach every American with a computer? Or do we act like the press and give a pass to the incompetent people who literally sat there in the White House and watched the Seal’s execution on live streaming video and did absolutely nothing? The Obama Administration obviously won’t be held accountable because too many Americans apparently accept Hillary Clinton’s statement, “What difference does it make?”
Please re-blog this!
IT DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE TO US!!!
AND…DON’T FORGET HER COMMENT WHEN YOU NEXT VOTE FOR PRESIDENT…
