"Part of the change in attitudes that I want to see here in Washington and all across the country is a belief that it is not acceptable for children and families to be without a roof over their heads in a country as wealthy as ours." — President Barack Obama, March 24.
Fast forward to today...
While Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Vice President Joe Biden and President Barack Obama drive by in their motorcades toward the White House on the left and the State Department to the right, he searches for a full-time job.
"There's a lot of vets out here on the streets," he said. "I've seen men lay right in the middle of the road and people walk by like they're not there. If that was a whale, if that was a dog, wouldn't someone save it?"(...)
As Washington's policymakers debate health care bills and promise economic recovery, Cali tries to stay afloat, as do thousands of others in the District of Columbia and millions across the country. About $1.5 billion from the $787 billion stimulus package was set aside to go toward preventing homelessness, but most of the money hasn't been distributed yet, advocates for the homeless say.
Ah... just throw some money around and say it's "for homelessness". But they're like, "Show us the money!". Where is the money going to go? Studies on homelessness? Bureaucrats' salaries? Advertising to raise awareness that there's homeless folks out there? Yep. $1.5 B should take care of that. That's what it'll take to put the homeless into homes. Suuure. Obama working his magic right before our eyes! Wow! Soooo magnificient!
"Why in Washington, D.C., in the nation's capital, is a woman and her three children in a car?" Hawkins asked. "They refill that 'cash for clunkers' program, no problem. That money should go to her, to the homeless."
Well, we can see just how serious Obama was. Apparently he sees homelessness as acceptable, because he's not doing anything about it!
Why should anyone believe anything this guy says? There's nothing special about him. He's just another puppet in the White House.
The more things "change", the more they stay the same... eh?
