What are they whining about? I thought these folks LOVED redistribution? The low income are complaining about making way for the homeless? Aren't these the same folks who whine that those of us with money SHOULD be making way for them? Funny how that works... Bottom line is THIS is the result of allowing people to make careers out of being moochers. Welfare is supposed to be TEMPORARY, not a life-time pursuit. I was reading a report recently that stated they started tracking multiple cities food stamp usage. They ended the study in 2011 (After 18 years) and found close to 90% of the same people were still on food stamps and other welfare programs... See? A career. Make it easy to abuse the system and the people will use it their entire lives instead of bettering themselves and contributing.

I don't feel very rich. Who is calling us the richest country in the world? Our GDP says so, but we definitely are not the richest on most other quality of life indexes.
On a side note: while many people recognize the growing gap between the rich and poor, many fail to recognize that income mobility is continuing to increase.
Essentially, yeah the poor are poorer and the rich are richer, but the poor are becoming the rich more and more as they age, while young adults become the new poor.

lauriloo: Please don't preach "Basic rights" when Obama and his pet Holder have no qualms about violating all of them. This president has an "enemies list" and has no reservations about using drones to kill US citizens.
Also, if Obamacare was soooooo great, why is he illegally forestalling most of it`s implementation until after the 2014 election?

"IF we had a GOP that was focused on creating real jobs instead of constantly interfering with non-white male people's basic rights and obsessed with stopping Obamacare, we wouldn`t have such a homeless problem."
