    It really is cheaper to build houses than missiles. We just have are priorities messed up.

      Who needs to even build them? For every homeless person in this country, there are 5 vacant residencies.

      Welcome to capitalism, suckers! We have your basic survival necessities in surplus right over here, but we’re going to forcibly keep you from them until you prove your value to someone with capital!

        That is what I find most disappointing about this country, you have to prove your value with capital.

    Like this guy hasn’t suffered enough. What happened to the soul of this country?

    Two years ago, I took a major hit to my income. Basically lost almost 2/3rd’s of it, and have been rebuilding. In the mean time, I have become an expert “Couponer” and now get almost all of my toiletries and some food stuff for almost free. When I am able to build extra stockpiles, I make up goodie bags and them down to the local shelters we have around us. Toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorants, shampoo, clean wipes, etc.. I always try to make sure there is a little something extra for the kids. It may not be much, but I try to do what I can for others using the experience that I have learned.

    One more note to make, don’t put your unwanted clothes in the bins that you find in the parking lots. They are collected, sorted, and sold as “Rags” to Mexico. They are bundled in 200 lb bales and shipped. Give them directly to an organization that will put them into the hands of the people who needs them.

    There are other ways to treat the downtrodden.
    Three students in Germany give us an idea.
