Charley James: America’s priorities, far too many of its politicians, and even a disturbing number of our everyday folks, are brutal – and brutish – about how to deal with homeless people like me who have lost everything except our dignity:
Clifford “Felonious Ax” Tasner: So what if a few citizens with funny-sounding names are getting purged from the voter rolls? I’ll bet a lot of the countries these people came from didn’t even have voting.
Clifford “Felonius Ax” Tasner: Adelson’s got the accommodations next to ours, and for a guy who has made his fortune in casinos, you’d think he’d be a little less grumpy about the stream of Tampa Bay’s famous strippers coming in and out of our suites.
Randy Shaw: Obama implemented his “most ambitious immigration initiative” in response to both growing Latino political power and the courageous and inspiring grassroots pressure from young DREAM ACTivists.
Charley James: Technically they aren’t counted as being homeless anymore because they now live in a house rather than on the street. Some activists think this distorts the numbers downward, masking the true extent of the problem.
Treva Brandon Scharf: Everyone should exercise their right to bare arms – just not in the state of Georgia though, where every Second Amendment nut job feels the need to show off their guns everywhere they go.
Elizabeth Nussbaumer: Offsets and the added profit from repurposed pollution perpetuate and further engrain the trend of polluting with impunity by using energy sources that only take us backwards in our need to address growing pollution debts.
