A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
It would seem that hidden amongst the Multitude of Miracles performed by “The One,” Obama, America’s homeless population has disappeared! Had you noticed? Practically no stories in the Mainstream Media about the poor, downtrodden, homeless people of America certainly must mean they no longer exist, right? It’s another Obama miracle, right?
Wait a minute! There were no homeless people during the Clinton Administration, either. There have only been homeless people during Reagan, and Bush One and Bush Two. Hummm. Kind of makes one pause for a moment and reflect, does it not?
There are two effective means of ridding a country of homeless people: Give them all homes, or … get rid of THEM!
Could it be that the MsM is deliberately NOT talking about America’s homeless so as to save any embarrassment to the Obama Regime? Naah. They wouldn’t so such a thing! Why, that would be biased toward the Obama Regime and we ALL KNOW the MsM in America, especially, is anything but biased.
The experts tell us that between half a million and six hundred thousand people are considered "homeless" at any given time in America. Assuming that is so, then why is the MsM not reporting it, except when a Republican is in the White House?
On the other hand, the UN, which has declared open season on America, has sent a UN Special Reporter to America to find out how bad the homeless situation really is.
In an article in “The Guardian,” a UK news organization, an article entitled: “UN investigator accuses US of shameful neglect of homeless” and dated November 2009 (A Republican was still President then, don’t you know?) The Guardian article began with: “A United Nations special investigator who was blocked from visiting the US by the Bush administration has accused the American government of pouring billions of dollars into rescuing banks and big business while treating as "invisible" a deepening homeless crisis.” The UN Special Reporter, Raquel Rolnik is quoted as having said: "I think those who are suffering the most in this whole situation are the very poor, the low-income population. The burden is disproportionately on them and it's of course disproportionately on African-Americans, on Latinos and immigrant communities, and on Native Americans."
The Guardian goes on to tell us: “The US government does not tally the numbers but interested organisations say that more than 3 million people were homeless at some point over the past year.” You may read the entire article HERE.
One must remember this was during the late Bush Administration. But, thanks be to Obama, THAT problem no longer exists! Hallelujah!
It is remarkable the number of problems that can be solved when one chooses to ignore them—or the MsM chooses not to draw attention to selected problems – problems they know have no simple solution. Homelessness is one such problem.
It is important to understand that in America, having a house is not considered a human right. We have not quite become a full-fledged “Nanny State” as have many countries in the UN. No, here in America, one still must take responsibility for some things -- one of which is securing a place one can consider a home.
But, hey, don’t trouble yourselves over this non-existent problem. At least -- not until it pops up again when we have the next Republican President of the United States.
