It's sad going out anymore, to like financial institutions, Gov agencies, Drivers license place, postal service, ect, any where the common gather, it's amazing how check to check most are living now, of all colors, stripes and purswations.
And the elderly as well, you mainly see older females inside banks, in the line, ect, it's like every ones begging for crumbs, even those who followed the rules and worked all their lives, now that older, they're begging for crumbs.
I don't think there was no such thing as 'poverty' until the whole money market scheme was implimented world wide.
I think in the past, villages and tribes simply took care of aging people, family, without ever thinking of placing a dollar amount on it.
The U.S. Government, also, now is funding immigrants, while it's own citizens fall through the cracks, can't wait to see how this place out on election trail.
