UN Accuses America Of Neglecting Homeless

The American people elected a man to the office of president who posed as one concerned about the needs of ordinary folk unlike George Bush who believed the president’s first duty was to the rich and powerful. A UN investigator who was prevented from visiting America by the Bush administration has accused the United States of pouring billions of dollars into rescuing banks and big business while neglecting the needs of those who even lack a place to sleep at night. Raquel Rolnik said in no uncertain terms: “The housing crisis is invisible for many in the US. I learned through this visit that real affordable housing and poverty is something that hasn’t been dealt with as an issue…. I think those whoa re suffering the most in this whole situation are the very poor. the low income people.”

Perhaps, another visit would make even clearer to the world that Ivy League led America under Barack Obama is more concerned about banks than those who lack jobs. No serious effort has been made by the Obama administration to address issues of unemployment or under-employment. Unfortunately, for Obama, those without jobs will express their anger in the coming elections of 2010. Beware the ideas of November, Mr. President!

    Speaking as one person among many who has been homeless, unemployed and unemployable: There is no mercy or compassion from the middle class and upper classes of this country.
    The one’s with the most to share, share the least amount, in time, money and friendship. Most if not all homeless are no more or less mentally disturbed, alcoholics and drug addicts than those who are homed. In point of fact, the homeless population in this country has not chosen this ‘lifestyle’ but it was forced upon them by the ‘greedy’ bastards who live in million dollar mansions and would not know how to work if there life depended on it. The homeless and underemployed work two and three jobs and still do not have enough money to earn a living wage.
    How can the richest country in the world tolerate such an unhealthy condition in their country? I will explain it in two words, unfettered capitalism. No rules, just money makes right. Please help to restore the rightness of this country, when people cared for one another, and did not let another person go hungry or homeless. This is and should be the priority in the administration of Barack Hussein Obama, not fighting an unwinnable war in a country that does not want us there and will fight us to the death until we leave in disgrace, without having accomplished our goals and of course ruined our own country in the process, leaving more and more people homeless and helpless in our own country without the social services network they have in the Western European countries.
