(Dec 31, 2013) An Un-Happy New Year in America
As America's minority elite of affluent power brokers rang in 2014 with expensive champagne, chateaubriand, and revelry at expensive restaurants, things were not so cheery for Americans who have been forced into homelessness by corrupt bankers, politicians, and filthy rich moguls.
Joining the decades-old ranks of forgotten military veterans from America's many pointless wars for Wall Street are an increasing number of new arrivals of middle class Americans forced from their homes in a Ponzi scheme engineered by sub-prime mortgage lenders at Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan.
As President Obama and his sycophant mouthpieces proclaim America's economy as being on a "rebound," such rhetorical flourishes fall on deaf ears in one of the largest concentrations of homeless in the United States: the cold pavements of rainy downtown Seattle.
For many of Seattle's 10,000 homeless, the only overhead shelters are the Interstate 5 and 405 freeway overpasses.
