Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?

Struggling Americans call tent cities home - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation): "Tent cities are springing up in California as thousands of people hit hard by foreclosures and big job losses say they have nowhere else to go.

Many of those seeking shelter had good jobs and stable family lives until the economy spun out of control.

Some 300 people call a tent city in Sacramento home, including Tracy Vaughan, who moved to the city with her husband six months ago."

And this Congress and white house just let Citibank take $25 billion of our money (to include those in the tent cities) so they could increase their outsourcing by 25%.

Seems like a ripe enough time for a genuine revolution to me.

Moving all those hot tubs to the tent cities was the real backbreaker.
