Declaration Of Independence - That Trumpanzees think is an attack on Trump.



Remember that the Declaration of Independence was written mainly by slave  owners and that slavery was legal at the time in all 13 colonies.   :hmmm:

High rents create a new class of hidden homeless in Los Angeles

Kevin Recinos works full-time helping the homeless in Los Angeles as a Life Skills Coordinator, but when his rent increased by $200 per month, he himself became homeless. Now, he's one of the estimated 9,000 newly homeless in Los Angeles living out of their car.

As he demonstrated how he gets his car ready for the night, Recinos lamented, "I realize this is the first time I've ever walked anyone through this. It's kind of really vulnerable. It's like I'm showing you my bedroom, and it sucks." He says he's trying to find new housing, but in Los Angeles, an affordable place to live is getting increasingly hard to find.

After the financial crash in 2008, housing prices dropped in Los Angeles, as they did nationwide, and deep-pocketed investment firms started buying up the undervalued properties. The city has few protections in place for tenants and gives landlords wide latitude with regard to what they can do with their properties. In recent years, as the economy improved, corporate owners of rental properties have used the law to their advantage to vacate newly purchased buildings, renovate units, and drive up rental prices.

Pete White founded the Los Angeles Community Action Network to help the homeless and says wages haven't kept up with rising rents. "So what you're seeing is housing costs and the cost of living far outpacing what people are earning," he said.

From 2010 to 2018, median rental prices for a one-bedroom apartment in Los Angeles increased 84 percent, while median wages during the same period only rose 11 percent. White says the people who get priced out struggle to make their way back into a stable place to live.

"We're in need of 550,000 units of housing, but instead of building that housing, we're building luxury housing. And once a person leaves whatever stable housing they're in, there's really very few options for them."

According to the U.S. Federal Reserve's Report on the Economic Well-Being of U.S. Households in 2017, four out of every 10 Americans cannot afford a $400 emergency. In Los Angeles County, that's four million people that are living on a financial knife edge. Many of those who fall into homelessness try to maintain the other aspects of their life and are hidden from plain view.





It's all Trump's fault.  :mad:

Ahh yes, and whatever I think of 'merica I am agnostic when it comes to the aforementioned declaration - it's just very entertaining that Trumpanzees would take offence at the declaration, whilst waving the flag at the same time, or perhaps, they do one after the other, multitasking may not be a skill they've gained.

remember that recent account that Trump preferred to believe Putin over the advice of all his intelligence chiefs?


Russian TV lists potential nuclear strike targets in US after Putin warning

Russian state TV on Sunday listed potential targets in the U.S. in the event of a nuclear strike and claimed that its new hypersonic missile technology could reach them in less than five minutes.  

Reuters called the report “unusual even by the sometimes bellicose standards of Russian state TV.” The targets included the Pentagon and Camp David. The report came days after Russian President Vladimir Putin warned the U.S. against deploying intermediate-range missiles in Europe....


Wot? Trump, no longer leashed?


And it's true because it's FOX
