  •  Why is it that a thousand scientists can look at (5+ / 0-)

    the same math, and come up with the same answer - but if it differs from what one powerful rich person says, it isn't true?
    Reagan started that crap when he closed down mental health.  It's the very reason we view homeless people as being crazy people.  That recently changed, due to the fact that huge numbers of non-crazy people, and their entire families, have become homeless as well.  It only takes one second in a car on a highway to change your world from being happy in your nice middle class home, with your nice middle class job - to being permanently injured and subsequently homeless - along with your kids and spouse.
    In fact, it's rather jolting.  Soon, no one looks at you, or sees you, or hears you, or cares about you.  You become invisible.  I think I''ll make a new sign for the marches - "I am here for the invisible people".  Or maybe not - not sure everyone would get that.

    It would cost society far less to simply house and feed the poor than it does to arrest them for being poor.

    Being poor is literally a crime now.  What have we become?  What can we do about it?  Is it time yet?
