First they came for the communists,
"First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me"
I hope I entered this quote correctly for ATS.
You're right. Many do sitll have a job, a home, etc, but look around. A job can be lost in a second. A home can be stolen by a bank with a letter.
Entire families are living in homeless shelters, under bridges, on the streets. People who thought they had pensions suddenly found out they don't.
There's no one to 'bail (them) out'. There are no million dollar vacations for them to take. They are trying to figure out where their next meal
is coming from. So many of the disenfranchised have no place to turn. There was a time when those who fell on hard times could count on their
neighbors to step up. Now the neighbors are in the same sinking boat.
I hope those with work & homes can hold on to those things...the shelters are full.
