It’s Official: Being Poor in America Has Been Outlawed

| |

Homeless

As they say, you can always judge a society by how they treat their weakest members. So I shudder to think of how future generations will judge our society. We’ve become a nation that discards our poor like they are trash, and anyone who doesn’t “fit in” is segregated from the herd.

The police are now fining homeless folks for any arbitrary offense they can think of, and city councils across the country are making it illegal to sleep in public. They’ve gone so far as to make it illegal to camp, or even sit or lay down in certain public areas. Worst of all, many cities are making it illegal, or prohibitively expensive to give food to the homeless. According to an interview from The Independent, with a former police chief involved in a charity dedicated to feeding the poor:

The homeless are an embarrassment for the town, said Arnold Abbott, a 90-year-old former police chief from Pennsylvania and director of Love Thy Neighbor, an organization that has been feeding homeless here for over 20 years. Five times the city has tried and failed in court to stop him serving meals each Wednesday on the beach beneath the tourist strip.

The town, he said, really wants the homeless to go away. “They would like to put them in a bus and send them to Miami or Palm Beach. It’s very close to ethnic cleansing. But they are not going to succeed.”

Thank god there are still some people willing to do the right thing, even if it means breaking the law. In other cities, you now need a 500$ permit from the health department to give away food, or perhaps you’ll have to spend 800$ to rent the park every time you try to hand out food there. On the surface, it’s bad enough that they are making it so difficult to help out those in need, but when you take the homeless out of the equation, it starts to sound really asinine. To the city councils out there that are perpetuating these laws, are you really going to make it illegal for one consenting adult to buy a sandwich, and voluntarily give it away for free to another adult who wants it? When it’s phrased that way, doesn’t it just sound utterly contemptible and insane?

In LA, things may be about to get downright draconian. If this whistleblower is to be trusted, then the city of Los Angeles is preparing to force their homeless population into internment camps. Of course it would never be called that. They would simply be referred to as ‘low cost housing’ or maybe they’ll just call it a homeless shelter, but with the caveat that once you enter, you wouldn’t be allowed to leave. This would probably be disastrous for anyone entering the facility, as many homeless shelters are notoriously awful and dangerous places. After all, if most shelters provided a safe and healthy environment, would there really be that many people on the streets? So they’re going to make a “homeless shelter” that you’re not allowed to leave? I’m sure that place will just be a ray of sunshine won’t it? But as you’ll see next, finding alternatives to a shelter can end disastrously if you have a family.

Last month, a family in Houston had their kids taken away by CPS, when it was discovered that the family had been living in a storage unit for the past three years. The family had fallen on hard times after the father had lost his welding job, and after getting a job with maintenance at the storage facility, decided that living in a unit there would be far safer for his family than a homeless shelter. By all appearances, these are otherwise lawful and caring adults just trying to provide the best they can for their family in a difficult economy.

There were no reports of abuse, and the unit had air conditioning and two computers. While it lacked running water, if they’ve lived their for 3 years without anyone getting severely ill, then it’s safe to assume that they’re doing their “business” in a proper bathroom somewhere else. They obviously have permission from the owners of the storage facility to live there, or they would have been kicked out a long time ago. So what’s the problem? What did they do to deserve this?

They happened to be poor, that’s what they did. This is what it means to live in America now. If you fail to achieve a certain income, then you are now at the mercy of the authorities (or God knows who else on the streets). And if you really think about it, if the government is going to treat the poor like this, then there is no reason to have a government in the first place. I thought that the main reason we have a government, is because life without them would be hell. It would be a chaotic place where the weak are indiscriminately killed, or are abused and exploited by the strong. At least that’s what we’ve been told.

If the poor are being treated this way, then our modern society is just as much of a Darwinian struggle as it was for our primitive ancestors. If that’s the case, can we even call what we live under, a government? Keep in mind, I’m not asking the government to step in and help. I’m not asking for them to provide free housing or increase welfare entitlements. I’m asking them to stay out of the way. How could you make it so difficult for private citizens to help each other out?

Perhaps what I said at first was wrong. Maybe our society isn’t so bad. Future generations won’t judge us for how we treat our fellow man. Plenty of private citizens have done their part to help the homeless.

No. They’ll judge our government, for breaking up families, fining people with no money, starving them, and then throwing them into internment camps.

    Only under a “progressive” regime…….

    If people open their eyes and look around at the problems we face as a nation and as a planet there is a source and it is the corruption and malfeasance of the government. We truly and honestly do not need them for anything and they inhibit much more than they create or support.
    People are robbed for anything and everything, taxed for no good reason, charged for water, parking, their own homes and everything else because of dollar worship. The dollar and greed have destroyed the country and will continue to make living here a nightmare because people cannot and will not look at the problem.
    History will judge the government and banking industry as criminals, the police as thugs and the people as weak and moronic. That is the cold hard truth.

      Please keep in mind the reason why you and I pay so much in property tax, school tax, water and sewer tax, license fees, etc., is because the average taxpayer has to take up the slack when large corporations don’t pay their fair share. The top 65 American corporations pay between 8% and 12% tax on profits while we pay over 20% on wages. The really big corporations pay no tax at all. And Congress allows corporations to ship our jobs overseas, and lie about the location of their corporate headquarters, and then gives them huge tax breaks.

      • CAFR account has over 100 trillion dollars in it, no taxes are EVER needed again.

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uy8tnC4xLX8 for a little look into that realm

      • Yeah! Let’s raise taxes on those evil corporations–like the one that produced the computer you typed your little tirade on–so that they can pass on their losses on to you in the form of HIGHER PRICES for your next computer! Sorry Sharon, but that is the reality of capitalism. Big Business see taxes as overhead to be paid by the customer.

        Notgotany has it right: it is the collusion of big banks (read corporations) and big government that are the problem–that, and folks like you who still believe that forcibly taking from one group and giving it to another has ever fully solved any problem. If you have an example of that working out, post it.

        You do not have the right to take something forcibly and re-distribute it, why do you afford that “right” to government and then hope that they won’t abuse it? How has that worked out for us so far?

        Government needs to get the hell out of the way and let people feed who they will. Government needs to get the hell out of the way period.

        • gov’t just needs to be sent to hell by deregistering, and then restart the Republic

          • Ed

            Starting the “Republic” is what got you to where you are now.

          • just the opposite with that puke lawyer Lincoln and the Act of 1871, with the creation of DC THE CORPORATE ENTITY,
            democracy vs republic
            drive vs travel
            USA vs usA STUDY A TAD dude

          • Ed

            If the “Republic” was never started, Lincoln would be nothing.

          • can you read? Lincoln IS nothing but a maniacal lawyer who set the feds against the states in the civil war.
            Lincoln destroyed the Republic

          • Ed

            No Republic = Nothing to destroy.

        • sharonsj

          If citizens don’t pay taxes to run the country, then we won’t have a country. And you didn’t address the problem: of the top 65 American corporations, they pay either no Federal income tax or a tax of between 8-12% on their profits. ExxonMobil made $5 billion and paid no taxes. But workers pay over 20% of their salary in taxes. To make up for the loss of corporate taxes, we pay more in taxes and fees, especially to the state governments.

          Yes, big business and government are in collusion–to give themselves fabulous tax breaks while we foot the bill. It’s not a question of forcibly taking money from one group, it’s getting that one group to pay their fair share.

          • no taxes are ever needed. CAFR account has over 100 Trillion in it

          • I suppose you like war then, Sharon? Are you certain that without taxes we would not have a country? Really?

            I could try to help you understand that the status quo we “enjoy” today–out of control government, taxes and other assorted problems is a direct result of doing what you advocate: MORE OF THE SAME but something tells me you might not get it. I’m guessing you’re a dyed in the wool statist of some sort.

            If what you are doing (or allowing them to do) over and over repeatedly FAILS, do you think you might want something to change that paradigm or are you going to continue to believe that you need “leaders” who, for some odd reason seem to make things steadily worse?

            Incidentally, “getting them” to do something requires FORCE, Sharon. That is all that government does, they misapply force and then ask you to foot the bill when they fail to control the blowback.

            Look up and understand the word statist….

            Look, I don’t want to be “led”. Nor do I wish to be sheared so that other people can mistakenly believe that they “have a country”. You do not have country, you are consenting to whatever BS “our dear leaders” can devise. Wake up.

            Force is necessary when an argument is unreasoned. If you doubt that government is force–please do some reading…and get back to me.

          • Sharon,

            Hear it from Josie:

            Read: The Most Dangerous Superstition.

            Free your mind.

    • Precise insights. USA incorporated is a Godless, soulless , murderous, demon possessed entity.

      If ALL deregistered from their slave-citizen status, we could restart the Republic and have FREEDOM like we did from 1776 to 1789

  • “Give me your tired, your poor,
    Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
    Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

  • nice idea. do it in Spanish. Hola, soy indocumentado, no tengo papeles, tienes burritos parami? ahhh…gracias

    • Mecca Wrecka

      just roll the r’s and smell bad, helps to be missing a couple front teeth, too

  • Mecca Wrecka

    best idea – marry an illegal no matter how old or what she looks like, take in some foster kids, and retire comfortably. Next best thing to running a for-profit prison.

  • Roger

    This is Agenda 21/ Hunger Games. Make everyone poor and utterly dependent on the elite. That way they can totally enslave a desperate people. This is also why they are destroying the economy through endless regulations and taxes such as the Carbon tax.

  • a garbage disposal shreds garbage, it doesn’t welcome it with a torch, book and kind of a smile.

  • BlaneckW

    Make productive jobs. It really is that easy.

  • “No. They’ll judge our government, for breaking up families, fining people with no money, starving them, and then throwing them into internment camps.”

    No, actually they’ll judge the PEOPLE acting under COLOR OF GOVERNMENT who maintained control of the sheeple. And, they’ll judge the sheeple who opted to be “disposed to suffer, while evils (were) sufferable” the oncoming onslaught of elite world dictatorship.
