Americans Living in Their Vans in California

America is getting poorer. The U.S. government has just released a bunch of new statistics about poverty in America, and once again this year the news is not good. According to a special report from the U.S. Census Bureau, 46.2 million Americans are now living in poverty. The number of those living in poverty in America has grown by 2.6 million in just the last 12 months, and that is the largest increase that we have ever seen since the U.S. government began calculating poverty figures back in 1959. Not only that, median household income has also fallen once again. In case you are keeping track, that makes three years in a row. Read more.....


  1. Well, you know there is a big recession on and do you really think statistically that people get richer in a recession? What you are citing happened in the recession that began in 1979 and the one that began in 1999 and all the previous ones and no doubt all the future ones. So what is the purpose of a headline "America is getting poorer"? Will you run a story with the headline "America is getting richer" when the recession is over and people are doing better? Even if you did what value would it have? Like most everything in life the economy and peoples lives change from time to time, very little stays the same or consistently trends up or down. This is the trick the global warming fear mongerers use they select a time to begin recording temperatures when the environment enters a long warming cycle and then try to claim that the statistics indicate something unusual.

    Wait a minute! The world is getting darker. It's 5pm and it is getting darker outside. Does this mean the sun will never shine again? Should we sacrifice a virgin to the sun gods?

  2. this is a depression
    the greatest depression
    the party just started

    as for global warming i agree a farce

    the riots coming to america will make greece look like a playground

    will make the 1970s look like the high water mark

    this will be something you wil tell your grandkids about
    they will take us down another leg soon.
    ha ha
    thats what they said in 1933
    by 1945 what was the world like
    welcome to your life enjoy

    and yes some day some one will say it didnt have to be this way.but they will forget and do it again .
