The tent city of Pinellas Hope, Fla is home to many who never thought they would find themselves homeless, but had nowhere else to go after being unable to find work as the economy crumbled.

Search youtube of google for tent cities / tent city, there are thousands. The gov and city officials usually try to keep them hidden out of the public eye and mind.







There are some existing tent city topics on ATS

This is so sad to see how hopeless and desperate these people are. They need a real leader. Not that puppet in the white house.

Its amazing when you think about the realisation of what is happening in the world right now:

Mortgage Lender over indebts the taxpayer - Mortgages cant/are not paid back - Mortgage Lender puts taxpayer on the street - Taxpayer bails out the Mortgage Lender with billions of their hard earned income.

Anyone else see a major issue with this

yes and then the bank turns around and sells the foreclosed home for as little as $100 to someone else. Ridiculous.

Got $100? Welcome to your new Detroit home

I partially disagree.

Indeed the USA did have this comming. The reason is because too many Americans where brainwashed into tapping as much credit as possible and then SPEND SPEND SPEND!!!!

This is what happens when you loose touch with the reality of a concept we know as "a rainy day".


When you fail to plan, you plan to fail!

Its sad to see someone almost giddy over the fact that something like this is happening. Be warned that if the US fails so shall the rest of the free world. We are still the only bastion of freedom in this increasingly dangerous world. Sad to say though that freedom is quickly diminishing. We were at one time the break basket of the world, the world leader in manufacturing and industrial production. We set the standards in the sciences and tech world. Today we are becoming as our president puts it, "one nation amongst many." So maybe we shouldn't be surprised at all that is happening around us, but I still have hope that people with brains and drive will help restore this nation to its former glory. And I wont appologise in that hope.

using credit is not bad , but using credit recklessly is bad . yes , this is one side of the problem , but like it or not , expansionist or resource imperialist empires have collapsed always due to overspending on military and general apathy of the people , where political affairs are concerned .

propaganda of the muslim machine


what kind of BS is this ?? i am not from middle east .but rather from south asia , i mean India .
and you believe the crap you write ?




we are the ones who have shed blood for the protection of millions,



like how you helped Saddam murder millions of iranians in 80-88 war ?
like how CIA deaths squads murdered millions in latin america , who wanted freedom from american expolitation ?
like how your nation murdered tens of millions of native americans and stole their lands ?
like how USa murdered tens of millions of blacks and enslaved them for profit?
like how USA built up hitler before ww2 ?
like how USA savagely butchered 3 million vietnamese and maimed 5 million of them too



we've fed the hungry of the world



so does western europe and scandinivia , hell they do much more than you .
by the way , the looting and plundering by USa and its minions has led to famine like conditions in third world



you are just a small person who is filled with hate and jealousy because what ever arm pit of the world you come from you havent prospered as we have here.


hell, I am from India , and like China , in this recession , we are a beacon of hard work and economic progress for the third world .
We are prospering , while you americans are failing , soon you will be fourth world country , like Somalia , in a state of civil war

Ok Mr. India... read your history before you spew your "crap" that you write. Hmm built up Hitler? Not too sure where you came up with that one, the Vietnam thing was because the Communists were expanding control in Asia...we wouldn't have been there if that never happened, and I dont think I ever said you were from the middle east. Though it is interesting to note that there is a huge radical muslim population in India which i suspect you are a part of and because I suspect you have been educated, and I use that term loosely, in nothing but a madrassa in some patch of weeds some where, only reading the Koran and taught by those who have sold there souls to the wahabi influence in Islam...because of these factors you will never see truth, you are one who will always blame the west for your problems, and till your dying day you will probably be screaming "death to the west" or "death to America". Just know that you won't win, there are too many of us here in the west who aren't stupid, or ignorant..there is a difference... and we wont let you destroy peace, our rich western culture, and our diverse faiths. So put that in your [SNIP]

I'm not sure I can even properly describe how disappointing it is that so many of my countrymen are now reduced to living in tents due to colossal mismanagement and general stupidity by so many in places of power. We have footed the bill for so many companies to be rewarded for bad behavior and business decisions and yet we get the brunt of the punishment in the end? If that isn't being screwed without a kiss I don't know what is.
