2. I know where you're coming from. It's horrid in a country as wealthy as this one is.

That person is someone's brother, sister, mother, father, son, daughter. There is no excuse for this state of affairs.
These people living like that while others can afford to go to ball games with overpriced players, overpriced stadiums and overpriced hot dogs.

Something is seriously stinking in the USA and it seems to be coming from the various seat holders in the chambers of government. From congress in DC to legislatures in each and every state, even down to the city governments.

They have a duty to tend to the needs of the citizens from the poorest of the poor to the 1%..and they aren't doing it. When there are two people hurt, you tend first to the one who is hurt the most.
