This morning, I saw this sight in front of a Denny’s in Claremont, California. Claremont is a liberal, wealthy town, but they do NOT want to see this sort of thing in their perfect paradise.

“Claremalot” (as I call this sick and twisted town full of aging, wealthy hippies) is intolerant of the homeless and people walked right by this HUMAN BEING to go into the restaurant to stuff their privileged faces. Even though I am living in my car, and it is a daily struggle to survive, I gave this person 5 bucks. At least I have a car to live in and don’t have to sleep on the sidewalk in a wheelchair and watch people ignore me.

When will this end? When will the U.S. leaders realize that people are dying on the streets while Chase Bank is building 2 new branch buildings in Claremalot alone? When will ignoring the plight of the disadvantaged be recognized and remedied?

And when will the “liberals” in Claremalot open their eyes and realize that, like it or not, the homeless are among them?

The very word “homeless” creates a label that defines the character to those applying the label. It is a definition of one’s current circumstances, not a definition of the HUMAN BEING.

So, how long? I wonder if this human being will survive the coming Winter? My guess is no, and that makes me depressed because I can do so little myself, but the Mighty 1% can do everything if they are able to forego their greed and open their fucking eyes.
