You really think they can see the magic of Dorthea Lange. Her silver oxides are incredible. Thank you for reminding me.

Thanks for posting that-- really captures the deep down suffering *dirt poor* element.
Damned shame what Bushco has done to this country. Lots of people suffering.
No medical care, and homelessness (foreclosure) are traumatic-- these are not the people you yell*get a job* at-- that they are not trying, or willing to work etc.
Medical costs are one of the major causes for bankruptcy in the US.

As for the bad mortgage loans-- Bush is bailing out the banks, not the people.

How about putting moritorium on variable rate loans & balloon payment mortgage loans?
Lots of people got sucked into low payment today schemes, by predatory lenders.

My Hood is empty...and alot of it has to do with working people bamboozled and predator loans...and yes, bankruptcy...

Homelessness and job loss is not somewhere else it is here ...my hood...the govt can't paint it as an Urban Blight Problem....it is OUR problem..Poverty is created by cultural conditions....the GOP would paint it as "they are lazy and jobless or they didn't save"....that is all crap...

At the End of the Day I keep thinking back to Katrina...and HOW that was just a First hand Look at the REAL America the hurt and the suffering....and the Bloated Arrogant Rich Oilman who FLEW Over....BUT where were the rest of them, the Elected in DC should have rushed to the scene.....and they didn't....

So it gives me little hope for them handling what is next....that is why I am always saying we need to take care of each other.....
