In the 1980s, I knew a lot of homeless veterans. Most are dead now, from disease, exposure, suicide and murder.

In the 1990s, I knew a lot of homeless workers who lost their factory jobs. Most families broke apart. Some went to prison, some are struggling in "service" jobs.

Now, the global oligarchs are out to impoverish the "professionals" by importing foreign incompetents and throw the farms and ranchers to the "free market - free trade wolves."
