Thoughts on poverty and homelessness in the U.S.A.

Comments on: "Celebrity advice! Get your advice here! Solve all your problems, lose weight and be happy!" (2)

  1. Sorry this comment is so late. I just ran across your BLOG from a link on Occupy Student Debt. I have to agree with your post here. Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you options. When you have no money, no way to earn more and you are buried in debt, you have no options and are forced into a state of desperation. It is a sad state when the “land of opportunity” in which we live is mainly focused on providing opportunity for the 1% to exploit the desperation of the 99%.

    • Thanks for your reply. Yes, unfortunately, much of the 99% has fallen for the propaganda that the wealthy 1% is better than the rest of us. The notion that the rich work harder, are smarter, closer to God, etc., while those of us who are poor are somehow to blame for our situation is pretty popular, and it doesn’t seem to be going away. Most people don’t realize they’re being duped until they find themselves old and grey and still poor–despite years of hard work and doing “all the right things.” And by then, sadly, its too late.
