Things are turfed out?
I ve never seen this here in OZ, Im pretty sure thas not what happens. If you are evicted you have an optionto go into shelter but also governement housing. These houses are usually filtered throughout all parts of town so as to avoid 'slums'. There some old fully govt funded tenamants but that is being dispered year by year.
So people in america get everything just throw onto the street?
You dont get offered shelter plus housing subsidy if required?
The whole point of this thread and SD's reaction is not her financial history or how good she is a keeping the household books, but the appalling reaction of people passing her in the street, and taking her stuff.

I am really having a hard time coming to terms with this. I've seen my fair share of horrors and the darker side of humanity, but those experiences have always been associated with individuals whose darkness represents a small minority.
Reading your post has torn away a great part of my optimism for humanity. I can only sit here and shake my head. Words fail me. As does hope for our future.
You're a good person SD. I've always seen glimpses of your humanity in your posts. This one shows how rare you are indeed.
