CNN has done a feature story on a 67-year-old woman living in a parking lot in Santa Barbara, California. She sleeps in her Honda with her two golden retrievers after losing her job and home. Santa Barbara has designated a dozen parking lots to accommodate the growing number of middle-class homeless people through a counseling organization, New Beginnings.
Even more mind-numbing than the woman’s predicament are the reactions to the crisis in CNN’s comments section.
Cry me a river…
A) Move the hell out of SB, and live in Compton
B) Thats what you get for not saving anything idiot
C) Thats what you get for being a crappy mother and having 3 kids that let you remain homeless
If you can’t afford the cost of living…….MOVE!! There are plenty of places in America where single middle class women can work and afford housing.”

Wake up CNN, the economy isn’t nearly as bad as you “spin” it out to be. All these freaking sob stories just to taint the election toward that socialist empty suit NoBama. We are not all equal, some are not entitled to own. Some have, and deserve more than others. It’s funny, I know a lot of liberals and they are the cheapest people I have ever known, never willing to part with their own money – only others.”
I wish she had better planned her retirement, rather than working at 67 to still pay off an expensive condo. If you are employed at that age, you cant expect to work forever since your boss can easily replace you with someone better looking and more productive.”
No wonder the tenant in the Grapes of Wrath asks, “Who do we shoot?” after the Shawnee Land and Cattle Company sends out the eviction notice.
