    You walk into a city council meeting and talk about disability housing, and they won't even give you the floor.

    This issue represents people, who don't pay taxes and don't vote.  It isn't uncommon for their families to have disowned them.

    No decent property owner is going to bank government checks  in place of fair market rent.  I've been in projects that are far worse than these pictures.

    In Bridgeport, CT they teach kindergarten out of moldy trailers.  If we they can't get school rooms for kids, how much luck are you going to have convincing a city council member to invest in disabled housing?

    For the past several decades we have been privatizing government services.  The result has been extremely poor conditioned housing in low property value areas serving as SSI collecting bins.

      Mississippi Legal Services is a logical place to begin to inquire.

      There are just 10 kinds of people; those who know binary and those who don't.

    •  sorry I did not respond earlier to this (0+ / 0-)

      I cannot disagree with what you say here. I do not understand how we can treat our fellow Americans this way (the kids in moldy classrooms or the mentally ill).

      I just do not see how the answer is to leave places like this open. We need to get these places on the news, in front of everyone who then will have to live with the choice of letting our citizens live in these conditions or change the system.

      Maybe the only way to change things is to constantly shocking us all with these situations, so no one can ignore the problem.
