Major problems loom all across the United States of America, not the least of which is with regards to citizens being forced and even kept in rough times.
There was once a time not so distant when communities would come together to help others without having to be directed to do so under the control of org's and/or those of profit/gain/control.
Even with cuts and greed, United States of America citizens can get thru any rough times if they fully adopt and go back to a one simple way of life the United States of America used to have: Being Neighbors!
Now a days, even those who live under the mystique they are doing right unto their fellow human actually don't do what is needed to those in need. Perhaps it is a defense mechanism, or just social/economic times which have them confused themselves, but what ever the reason, it is just a reason to not be about it when actually "Helping" those who are real need.
The problem isn't getting better, and even with all of the so called "Help" organizations, the numbers of those in "real need" continues to increase.
The system does however seem to overlook those who don't fall into any one of the categories of mental health issues, drug and/or alcohol addictions and/or being in the penal system. The people who aren't into one of the groups that are designed to get org's paid have to just deal with being "Houseless" are almost left out in the cold - literally.
This isn't to take notice away from the thousands who are scamming the system, and it seems that they are almost always given precedence over others.
