  •  got folks living in poverty over here... (3+ / 0-)

    where I'm at. People living in houses off the grid burning wood in the front yard for warmth and cooking on the front porch. Had a family living in a tent in the backyard across my street- thankfully they moved before the winter came. Empty houses through out my post-war neighborhood. Three murders on my block since I've moved here a decade ago and I live in a fairly small town in Oklahoma. Many streets have grass growing in the cracks and nothings been paved over or fixed since they first put the streets in after WWII. Maybe not third world conditions but we're headed in that direction with many folks cheering it on. Refuse to take notice and watch it happen even faster.
