Over at the EENR blog, pioneer has posted a short diary about the emergence of new tent cities in Los Angeles, CA.
I believe that we all of seen or heard about "tent cities" through out the years, if not in your community then most likely on the news.
I have seen them in person, read about and heard about the fights between communities, churches and the homeless and all that goes with them. Nobody wants them in their back yard, but these people must live somewhere.
Now we have a new breed of homeless living in "tent cities", they are the couples and families that have lost their homes due to the mortgage mess AND the lack of TRUE Universal Health Care!
While our media is fixated on the "Ballot Bowl", a pastor, an ex VP candidate, the presidential candidates and ALL of the nonsense that has been going on around them, it takes the foreign press (oh what an EVIL word - right?) - the BBC - to help enlighten us and bring us back to reality.
See the BBC video at YouTube.
This presidential race is not really about Democrats and Republicans. It is not really about left and right. It is not about Clinton and Obama. It is about You and I - We The Poeple! It is about staying focused on the real problems at hand, the real messes we have to clean up and the inept congress!
We need Action not "Ballot Bowls". We need to focus on Reality not Spin. We all need to Open our eyes and use Our Heads and remember WHY we are all here. Why we need to stay focused on on reality.
If you truly live in reality and really care then you know the way forward is with a Democratic president that has We The People riding their ass!
Remember the people, your friends, your neighbors and Take Back This Country and Move It Forward!
