Posted on 12/11/2013 7:53:27 PM PST by Nachum
At a time when Wall Street is absolutely swimming in wealth, New York City is experiencing an epidemic of homelessness. According to the New York Times, the last time there was this many homeless children in New York City was during the days of the Great Depression. And the number of homeless children in the United States overall recently set a new all-time record. Americans like to think of themselves as "the wealthiest nation on the planet", and yet the number of young kids that don't even have a roof over their heads at night just keeps skyrocketing. There truly are "two Americas" today, and unfortunately most Americans that live in "good America" don't seem to really care too much about the extreme suffering that is going on in "bad America".

They call it a city of immigrants.
See ??, it works.
New York City Has The Most Artful Dodgers Since The Great Depression
No mention in this article of the two parents, both unemployed and the father a drug addict, and their SEVEN children.
No society can clean up that mess.
They have a roof over their head. It’s just that it is a homeless shelter, and the conditions there are abominable. It is New York City law to shelter the homeless.
We have well over 50,000 homeless right now, and the New York Post keeps beating us on the head about ending rent regulation. How would they like 2 million more homeless, on top of the 50,000?
They picture themselves and their friends in nicer apartments. That’s it in a nutshell.
I’m a conservative but I’m not a murderer.
“...both unemployed and the father a drug addict...”
Don’t look now, Captain, but the mother in most cases ain’t exactly a Saint living a clean life either.
And the most addicts. The two are nearly always connected.
But the Mayor is obsessed that sugar in soft drinks is the major problem. BTW, SF will be taxing soft drinks 25 cents per can next year.
And these homeless kids are where?
Well New Yorkers never seems to amaze me, they elected another moron who could turn out to be more stupid than the one who is leaving.
You deserve whatever you get, no mercy.
and heaven knows the rents in New York are so family friendly:)
“No society can clean up that mess.”
In a sane, rational society these people would not be living in the most expensive city in America with no attempt to work, contribute to society or provide for their children. They would not be spending their entire lives being parasites on society and being portrayed as victims.
Without the welfare system they would need to leave NYC and go to a lower cost area where non skilled jobs were available. The children would be in an orphan school if the parents were not able or willing to provide for them.
The article talks about the other families in the neighborhood living in the projects, supported by taxpayers. Meanwhile, if you work for a living and provide for your family the brownstones in the area sell for $1 million or more.
And the mayor is spending his time in other cities lying about gun regulation and attempting to confiscate guns from law abiding citizens in other states. Or the Bloomberg Administration is spending time and resources trying to ban soft drinks. The mayor is ignoring real problems in NYC. The city government is dysfunctional.
and no blame at all implied on obama by his media minions.
One of the greatest “scientific” advances of our times is the ability to manipulate statistics and have the inept media just accept anything.
This is ridiculous on it’s face.
I would have exepected this story to feature Dallas, Milwaukee, or New Orelans instead of the future Socialist Paradise unde Deblasio
To help keep the apple from landing too close to the tree, place the kids in foster care.
