    We need to have Sesame Street style explanations for Boomers about arcane notions such as empathy and community. This is a good start.

    Many people are one paycheck away from homelessness. I think she misspoke about cooking salads, she ment making salads. It’s very hard to work in America because small business hired more people. Now most of these companies are gone, because of Walmart and Amazon. I used to make so much money waiting on tables. Since the pandemic many restaurants are closed. This is why we have homeless people. The boomers got the last of the good jobs with pensions. The cusp boomers kinda got a bit of this or that, and self pensions. It really has messed up retirement from now on. So many of us will die on the job.🐠🐬🐬💜💜🧝‍♀️🧝‍♀️🧝‍♂️🧝‍♀️🧝‍♂️🧝‍♂️👼👼👼👼🧝‍♂️🧝‍♀️💜💜🐬🐬🐬🐠🐬🐬💜💜🧝‍♀️🍀🍀🍀🍀🌺🌺🌺🌻🌼🌼🌼🌻🌺🐐🐐🤯🤯🍀👼👼🐟🐟🌸🐋🧝‍♀️🐋💐💐🧚‍♀️🏄‍♂️🐡🦋🦋💐💐🐋🧝‍♀️

    As long as capitalists profit from the infantilization of Americans. They care where the money comes from.
    At the end of this party. Someone’s going to be left with the tab. Sadly it will be our kids whom we’re selling into slavery.

    I do not believe a single thing she said was not done with vetting, aforethought and gross embellishment.

    This is all an act to coerce people.
    “I was the sketchy one in the house….”
    No one thinks like that.

    Lol @ rich Americans thinking the poor are all murderers smh

    Also, it’s not just the young who need help. Here in Australia (don’t know US stats but wouldn’t be surprised if it’s similar) the fastest growing homeless demographic are middle aged women. This problem cuts across all lines (except class).

    Individuals helping out is great but the problem won’t be solved til housing is seen as a right not just somewhere to let your cash grow for decades.

    Homeless people and peopleless homes, 21st century capitalism at work.

    I don’t know anything about her, but we have a serious issue that half a million people are homeless in this country, 40,000 of them are veterans. Lots of young people end up homeless due to broken homes. It’s literally cheaper to give people a place to live than to do all the things we do instead, which is pay cops to harass them, destroy what little stuff they have, cities spend money building anti homeless infrastructure which costs millions. The cost of ER visits alone when in winter homeless just want to be warm, or they specifically get themselves arrested so they can have a place to sleep for the night. Nobody that is seriously interested in being a fiscal conservative would be against helping the homeless have a place to live to keep their stuff to have the ability to get mail, to have access to water, to have security. There’s this Hollywood version of a bum, you can find him in Back to the Future played by Buck Flower, he’s been a bum in tons of movies, always drunk always halfway out of it. That’s not what most homeless people are, most just need help and would recover their lives. Right now all the people who are homeless won’t get a relief check, cause they don’t have a place to receive it, they may not have bank account, and they desperately need it, nobody is going to seek them out and say hey here’s 1,400 dollars, you can rent a place for a month or two.

    We should honestly consider force retirement for boomers they are just such a problem, they are completely delusional, living in a huge bubble. Most young people in today society are extremely poor due to the bad decision your generation made.

    Another current euphemism, “food insecurity”, when people can’t buy essentials like food, housing, clothing etc., they are actually suffering from POVERTY plain and simple. This Orwellian Double Speak.

    Building a house shouldn’t cost what it does. The materials to build a pre fab house are cheap as hell, but when you let lawmakers get involved with Regs and Tariffs, don’t expect anything to be affordable.

    It’s too bad it takes this kind of extreme example to realize we’re all the same……everyone is a little ‘sketchy’, but ultimately we’re all the same species and should be caring for eachother.
