The blizzards haven't stopped the banks, and their hit-men the City Marshall's from throwing families onto the street. Mind you the dis-possessions have never stopped here in the land of the nolonger free, but 'local' actions had seemed to stop since the fall.
Well there's a new wave of foreclosures hitting the City. Tow-trucks splashing down the streets hauling away family cars,..re-possession stickers on their windshields.
Eviction notices plastered on the front doors of now pad-locked brownstones, and apartments,..two more in my building since around the Holidays. Indeed since I moved into this place five families have been tossed out of this complex.
I guess I bring this up because of what I saw this evening on the next avenue up from Sydney Haus, "Sydneyland". On a block of tidy brownstones I came upon the household goods of a family out in the rain, and snow.
Clearly this was a formerly stable middle class family to judge by their belongings which were spoiling in the open elements.
My mother used to tell me stories about the Great Depression, and how this sort of thing was common place.
Well it's come back. Come back "millions" strong. The government is admitting to millions. If they admit 'that' I shudder to what it really is.
Where has my Country gone?
Is 'this' the 21st Century?
What is this evil place?!
