More Americans were living in poverty last year than in the entire 52 years that the US Census Bureau has been tracking the figure, new reports say.

An annual income of around $22,314 for a family of four is considered "poverty level" according to American bureaucrats? What is the AVERAGE annual income for a family of four in Russia converted to US currency? Look every country has their malcontents and from a country where people aren't locked up or killed for browsing a "subversive" web site, yeah, you are going to have such malcontents flock to your web site. But compared to the United States as a whole, you get a small, small number.And you tried this before. You thought you could bring America down by using our own "useful idiots" against us. How did that work for you last time?Instead of trying to bring us down, why don't you in the Russian Government try to lift up your own people. Our hunger doesn't fill Russian bellies does it?
I have to agree. The very sad thing is that in this country the cheapest food is the least healthiest.A s far as the wars. In this country we have the illusion that our votes are what matters. That we actually vote for the leaders. But tell me this. Is it really a choice if we are given only two options, the Republicans and the Democrats, to choose from? Both parties have long been owned by big money. Nothing will change until THAT changes. Big money and lobbyist's out of D.C. and having more REAL choices with elections.So the wars are politicians and corporations wars. We the people are just that, only people with illusions and no power, yet. Things will change, they have to. And when they do it won't be a pretty sight.We The People must always come first, no matter what part of the world one lives in.
Kevin: I too live in San Francisco, and the reason that poor and homeless people eat fast food and doughnuts is that they are cheap and filling. Also, such foods do not require cooking, which is unavailable to many of the poor. A few months ago, one of our yahoos (elected representatives) suggested that only good nutritious food be provided to those on food stamps, you know, the kind of expensive food consumed by the swells who shop at such places as Whole Foods. The caloric intake would be reduced, but since their incomes are limited, they would remain hungry. Feeling self righteous after proposing the bill, whoever among the cretins that run our state went home to a Pacific Heights mansion to discuss the evening menu with the chef.
As the resault of unlimited spending, unregulated wall street policies,Pentergon unlimited spending, A war that was paid entirely on credit, misapproation on millions that was predicated
by dangerous misdiagnosis of the problem that confronts the United States and
other countries, leading to bad forecasts and bad policy, resulting in
financial deregulation, unprecedented economic failure.
Mother Africa hypocrisy is a disease that belongs to all races, so before you get comfortable on your soap box, take a long hard look at your own world before you preach about others. ...One of your sons, Obama, is running this corrupt show....and African moralty is at an all time low.Watch East African mothers give birth to starving children while they wait for food handouts from Europeans who don't have to be there......Meanwhile African American athlet es in obscenely expensive cars draped with 'bling' eat their own young....and drive by their own poverty-stricken neighborhoods every day.....
The Gods are at work. This is just the beginning.The blood and tears of the innocents around the
world are hunting their murderers and oppressors. Only until this USA is
collapsed and it Europeans allies are weaken, then Africa will be the
place it ought to be. The land of plenty. A beautiful paradise. Let it
This is why I'm an RT news refugee:CNN, ABC, CBS NBC, NY Times, NPR and all their experts would have me believe; "The recession is OVER & profits are UP.."..To 'grow' the economy , the country has to 'grow' business..A pro-business environment is tax-free...Lay offs causing unemployment & poverty are "belt-tightening" or "streamlining" which is a healthy corporate trend...As the Bank of America CEO said "It's better to be good than big" so it is OK to lay-off 40,000 employees...The US has the 'highest' living standard in the world...so if you are poor, it has to be YOUR fault....so don't look for hand-outs...and while you are at it, SPEND MORE because you are not a 'producer'...you are a 'CONSUMER'....
Ablemind "There is an astounding shortage of personal responsibility in this country" Ironic user name. There is an astounding shortage of understanding as to the causes of the US decline. It's not an accident. When the water level gets to your cabin, you may see things differently.
There is an astounding shortage of personal responsibility in this country.
There is an astounding shor tage of compassion in this country over the last decade. That is the core root of our problems.
Thanks to your goverment that prints dollars and dollars in order to pay for arms and wars out of USA, you create more and more homeless people.Why?  ; because all these dollars are toxic and your country's economy is on red.Result? Unemployment that Leeds to homeless.WAKE UP NOW....Tell them to print dollars only if they have gold to back them up. Stop killing young americans in wars in Irak or elsewhere.
I suggest to friends from America mainly turned with their requirements to Mr. Bush and comp.
I don't want to hear about anyone in America complain about being poor ever again.&nbs p; And yes, there's a lot of food. That's all I care about.
This is just the tip of the iceburg. Many are working for much less wages then before just to keep a job. Business owners say you should be happy you still have a job and by the way you have to work more hours for less pay. Goodbye American dream
omg iwhat is on that sign i need to find out u fatties
oh and searouisly digits?
I work with homeless people in San Francisco. One reason that some of them are overweight is because they live on a diet of doughnuts and what's available on the McDonald's 99 cent menu. This often leads to being fat, having health problems, and increased mental health disturbances. I try to tell them that eating these empty calories is not good for them, but they generally just continue eating that type of food.
Yuck!!! Why are poor people in the US so fat and ugly, while only the rich and successful are skinny and beautiful?These people sure need to lose a few pounds. Since they are already starving, maybe they need a good exercise program to burn off all the excess fat and calories.
Is that a star of david on the bottom of her sign? My gawd, even the Jewish people are going break those days! X-D
