'16 MIllion kids live in poverty.'
in this country.For over 4 years now, I along with many others have been fighting to correct the wrongs of the Wall Streeters who caused a world wide economic disaster and continue on as if they did no wrong and there was no harm no foul.
This Great Recession - officially began in December of 2007 - but unofficially I say it began in March of 2007 - has caused real people some very real, painful and life changing problems. The actions of greed exercised by the likes of Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Citbank, Bear Stearns, Merrill Lynch, Lehman Bros. and others have brought human disaster to Americans in a way few of them ever thought could happen to them.
The real story of the Banksters is not the illegal actions they all participated in, not the illegal acts they are still participating in and not the "look the other way" attitude our government has taken. The real story has much more of a human core to it. The real story is the hunger, homelessness and destruction of family units.
You hear very little on this topic. In fact, you hear almost nothing. Yes, you may hear about food banks not having enough food to go around, you may hear about homeless shelters that do not have enough room for the homeless but you do not hear about the homeless and hungry themselves.
Yesterday, CBS 60 minutes ran a segment on what I believe should be headline news every day of the week until those that created this human disaster own up to what they did and use their ill gotten money to begin to correct the problem.
Robin Hood stole from the rich and gave to the poor. What we have here is a hooded robin who continuously stole from the poor to make themselves richer.

‘60 Minutes’ shines spotlight on homeless Fla. teens (Video)(Watch the “60 Minutes” videos below.)
A powerful piece on “60 Minutes” on Sunday night shone a light into life as a homeless teenager in Florida. Though the show gave faces and stories to the impact the recession has had on South Florida, the Internet lit up with concern for two teens in particular, brother and sister Arielle and Austin Metzger. The siblings live in a van with their father, an unemployed carpenter.
The two spoke eloquently of their homelessness and the state of the economy — and of their enduring faith in the American Dream. In a post-show clip, the CBS News producer Nicole Young talks about how much Metzger impressed her. “I give the girl credit because most adults couldn’t handle that.”

Watch this segment from 60 Minutes then read on.
The rest of the story not seen on TV but only on the CBS/60 Minutes Web site. If you only saw the aired segment you MUST watch the rest.
OK, now you have seen this. How does it make you feel?
This is, I believe, the real issue that stands behind Occupy Wall Street. In fact, after seeing this and doing more research it makes you want to destroy these Wall Street banksters. Ruin them, take their money and homes and have them live on the streets. A sentence they so well deserve.
While we will still continue writing on the destructiveness of Goldman Sachs and the others, I will pursue this REAL story until we get some positive and just actions.
While Florida seems to have 1/3 of all the homeless in America, the 2/3's across the country are also in need of help.
We - I - need to help. We - I - need to become proactive. Just writing and exposing these criminals is not enough. It will not help the millions of hungry and homeless children in our country.
I need your help. I would like to establish a foundation - The GoldmanSachs666.com Foundation - for the rescue of our nations homeless and hungry.
This will be a difficult effort and will take many to volunteer and bring it to a REALity.
I will need Volunteers to help organize, structure, plan and implement this plan.
I first need an attorney who can structure this charitable foundation. Once structured we will need organizers all around the country so that the efforts in each area goes to support and help those people in those areas.
We will need fund raisers, food, clothing and shelter raisers and so much more.
If you are interested in working with me on this project, contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Let me know what you are capable of doing or are interested in doing. Then please provide me with your name and contact information so that I can call you to discuss this further with you.
We need to bring the daily realities of the Wall Street crimes to the attention of all Americans. While OWS spoke of the 1% and the 99% the invisible hungry and homeless - without a percent sign - were not properly represented. These are the people we need to represent. If we get our destroyed middle class back in shape then the rest of our country and us will become healthier.

Final Note: To those GOP Presidential contenders who told the OWS demonstrators to go out and get jobs and stop complaining for their own lack of initiatives, I say, WATCH THE 60 MINUTES VIDEO. Come out of your GOP big business cocoons (most of you are in the 1%) and see what the REAL people of America that you want to represent as President are all about.
The problem my friends is being hidden from us. It is being buried by our government influenced media while our cities take more and more actions to chase the homeless away. As here in Tampa Bay, they are considered a blight. Their tent homes were destroyed and their is new legislation to prevent them from panhandling.
Are we ashamed of what "we" have created here in what once was the land of "opportunity" now the land of hunger and homelessness.
