Do the rich in America realise that their fellows are in such dire straits? There are so many billionaires in America - how can they sleep at night knowing that their fellow Americans are in such poverty. I'm astonished and deeply saddended. I couldn't come to America where the people who have are so uncaraing towards those who have not.
They are certainly not homeless in spirit! Now if they can get the cops from ruining their community and actually protecting them, they could survive these times. But I am sure it is only a matter of time till the "protectors" of property find a reason to destroy their community.
This is what you get for supporting the fascist theocracy of Apartheid Israhell. Endless ILLEGAL wars fought with American treasure and blood to support the Zionist ideology of world domination by way of GENOCIDE, false flag attacks such as 911, USS Liberty, a crashed economy, and more "bubbles" than Bernie Madoff and Ponzi could have ever conjured up. Until the fascist state of Apartheid Israhell and the Nazi Zionists are destroyed: we won't even have a tent or a pot left to share.
These are not a "heartbreaking" photos at all, they are inspirational photos of resiliency and courage shown by people down on their luck. Some of the tents are decorated beautifully with care and attention, and I see happiness and pride on the faces of the dwellers who are determined to survive against all odds!! Bravo and good luck...... L.L.K.
