Bush's Health

Is it my TV or does the image of George Bush in his latest TV appearances make him out to look a bit haggard and weak? Knowing that that the strains of the office can be difficult, it looks almost like he has started drinking again. Should we worry about him, or just let him coast?

Just think, maybe we WILL get Dick Cheney as president for a little !Now that would send the lib's over the edge. Maybe Bush will resign during his last week and we will always be able to say President Cheney. HooRah!

More and more tent cities are springing up around the country now and more homeless people wander the streets looking for shelter...it's going to be long winter for some folks.

We were driving around downtown Atlanta last weekend, early in the morning, and noticed so many more homeless people sleeping under the bridges and even on the streets now.

This is America.... and it is heartbreaking to see this happening to our country.

"From Seattle to Athens, Ga., homeless advocacy groups and city agencies are reporting the most visible rise in homeless encampments in a generation.

"What you're seeing is encampments that I haven't seen since the 80s,"

The relatively tony city of Santa Barbara has given over a parking lot to people who sleep in cars and vans. The city of Fresno, Calif., is trying to manage several proliferating tent cities, including an encampment where people have made shelters out of scrap wood."

I wonder if you saw the same spot I did.

I was on the ramp from I-20 West, hooking around to get onto 85 South--near Turner Field--and spotted a large group of people "encamped" in the island area under the bridges. I don't know that I've ever seen so many together in those circumstances.

Yes, that was the area in town where I also saw the homeless sleeping in larger numbers.

I think we will see more of these "tent cities" springing up across the country as the economic crisis deepens. I found some interesting videos on youtube that have reported on the crisis:

Middle Class Sleeping in their Cars

BBC on Tent Cities in US

1 in 3 Homeless, are Veterans!

Cutting up Homeless Tents (St. Pete/FL)

Foreclosure Homeless

Washington State Tent City

In my opinion we are an ideal place for such "Hooversvilles-Bush Gardens."

Anywhere around the Lakes would work out well for them
The various ponds also. Coffee and bathrooms, you know?

Along the RR tracks most any place is good too.

Golf Courses are the best however. They have more cover for wind and rain. I'll bet HD and WM are out of blue plastic sheets already!

Rice, potatoes, beans, and cabbage and onions will soon be gone from the stores, along with corn meal.

encampments like these were called "Hoovervilles".

I didn't read the part where you opened your car door and let them in and invited them to your home. Where's your compassion? California is 13 billion in the red from catering to illegals. They are reaping what they......Stop spending our money on people who are ILLEGAL and they could buy everyone of those tent-dwelling Americans a home! And utilities! Let them bleed Mexico, and points south, dry.

Well actually on that particular morning, I was driving to the Habitat construction warehouse in Grant Park to volunteer for the day and help build a house. We started out in the warehouse, building the exterior and interior walls then loaded them on trucks and drove them out to the house site off Cambelton Road in East Point. There were about 50 of us who had volunteered, through the professional association I belong to, and we spent the day building the sub floor, erecting the walls we had built, and painting the foundation.

No, I didn't help those homeless people under the bridge, but I did help Mrs. Greer build her house that day. I was able to meet several of her new neighbors who were thrilled to see the house being built on what used to be a vacant lot filled with trash and kudzu. Everyone had a smile on their face, especially Mrs. Greer who had tears in her eyes when she thanked us all.

I bet we've seen each other. There are so many people in the Atlanta area who are expressing their 'faith' through their 'works'. AC is also a 'perfect child' - he/she just doesn't realize it yet.

By the way - I saw two teenagers with McCain/Palin signs on the corner of Glen and 54. No horns honking or 'thumbs up' from passers-by. Interesting. It's the economy . . .and the polls are changing (as they will continue to until November). I hope everyone watches the 'debate' tonight.

Why didn't Mrs. Greer and her neighbors call a community agitator? I mean organizer. The community you speak of is a trash pit to begin with. She should have called in Sharpton and Jesse and perhaps the agitator king his'self, obama. Perhaps they could have held a march. Perhaps a protest. They could even blame jews and whitey. Get Billy "the bigot" McKinney and his commie daughter, the police puncher, to be the keynote speaker. Doing nothing themselves to clean the lot on a Saturday afternoon, while complaining that the trash-strewn vacant lot was due to the white man keeping 'da brothers and sisters down. If the freeks in that neighborhood had any sense, they wouldn't have filled it with trash in the first place. Everyone of the people in that area will vote for obama. I thought the Dems were sooooo concerned with the environment, but a trash-filled vacant lot is typical of worthless, useless, dregs of society like the Dems. I am happy you can go to help these people, perhaps you can ease your white guilt. I don't have any of that. If you feed a stray cat it will do nothing but hang around and beg and multiply, then you have more stray cats hanging around and multiplying and begging. Soon, people like you buy into the fact that the government should take money from those who earned it and give it to the people that feed on your foolishness.

You are a shining example of the modern day Republican in our country.

(btw - Kroger is having a sale on Midol, since you seem to be PMS-ing pretty badly)
