Attention Americans. Homelessness Is Not A Crime!

I’ve got many issues.    They could fill up the library of congress.

But the one that makes me angry to the point of boiling?  Is how the poor & homeless are treated.    And you may ask just how are the homeless treated?

Good question boys & girls.    Homeless people are treated like criminals behind bars.   Although I’ve never been incarcerated (by the grace of God, I was lucky) I do know that inmates behind bars are treated very inhumanely.  I know this because I have read books by people who either are serving time locked, or who have served their time locked up and were lucky to be released.   I believe in Hell in the after life, here on Earth that hell is called jail or the penitentiary.     Out here in the so called “free world” (Ha what a joke) human beings are supposed to be treated with some modicum of dignity…right?   Wrong!  Not if your poor & homeless.     Homeless people are treated like criminals.    Homeless people are not ever considered human.     Hey if you don’t believe me then get off your butt & go check out your local skid row in your town.    Or go to tent city,  I’m sure there are several all over what I laughingly call this great nation.

The United States Of America is supposed to be the richest country.   I often wonder who came up with that one?   Because so far I sure don’t see it?   Let me give you some examples:

On any given day I get asked for spare change.   I’ve now gotten used to it, at first I would get annoyed, now I’m just resigned,  I’m not even middle class, I’m so broke most of the time that I can’t even pay attention.   

Riding in my ride share van along downtown streets of Seattle I see encampments of tents….these folks aren’t out for some leisurely outdoor time let me tell you.

Say for example friends that your driving your car, you look & see people holding up a card board hand written sign.   The message’s on these signs that these people hold up vary with the individual.    Guess what friends?   These homeless are cropping up everywhere!    In suburbs where you see nothing but expensive cars traveling on the road.  Just everywhere.   

To be continued.    WordPress is acting up.   Againg!

Me: I grew up in an extremely abusive & disadvantaged family environment were both parents were really immature & their relationship messy! I was abducted by my Father at age 8 abused physically, mentally, degraded by his 2nd Wife, and I didn't see my Mother again until 4 years later, I had to risk my neck + my life to run off to seek help with the local police & this was way before there was any such laws on the books for child abuse. Think on that awhile. Had learning disabilities all throughout school by the time I graduated I learned nothing, was prepared for nothing out in the World. Think on that. Joined the United States Army right out of High School only reason I did join was that at the time there was an Army recruiter right on the High School campus & he took an interest in me. So I joined. I was really in over my head. But what else could I do? I lived with a single Mom who was emotionally unstable & I had ZERO support from anyone including the school staff + administrators. The military was hard & degrading to me as a woman but I got out with an honorable discharge. More about me: A series of dead end jobs, my mind was totally a mess after I got out of the Army, still had no support not even from the Veterans admin. My journey has been a total nightmare of: trying to find out about myself, learning about myself, how to live as an adult, all with no help. Now after long , and intensive filled journey I'm trying to get back on track with my life I want to go to school with the hope of one day attending University. I don't wish my journey on anyone. No one gave me guidance: as a child as a teen as a young adult I was all on my own! and it was real lonely , isolating, extremely frightening. Family? don't really have any. Now remember everyone I'm African American & I receive little to no respect I don't even warrant a speeding car that will slow down.

If you've read this far I will leave my email in case you want to leave me a msg. Those that are rude will get deleted immediately. Contact:
