The report does not attempt to calculate raw numbers of homeless or hungry people. It is based on cities' reports on the number of requests for emergency shelter or food, as provided by shelters and food banks.
Well yes, there is a Republican in office, so it must be really bad, take a look back when Reagan and Bush 41 were in office and the horrible homeless report and how many were touted during the klintoon years?? Par for the course for the liberal press. Nobody listens or cares, because the reports are bogus, non-existant during demoncrapt presidency, horrible during a Republican Presicency?? NO BODY BELIEVES YOU ANY MORE LIBERAL MEDIA! Go find a soup kitchen, if you can.
I was in the second or third grade when we read Aesop's Fables.
They all impressed me (e.g. grasshopper and ant), but the story of the boy who cried wolf too often stands out in its verity in these daily bits of "The Sky is Falling".
Nobody does listen or care. As you say, the reports are largely bogus.
I feel for any human who, by dint of ill-fortune is hungry, cold, and homeless. I can even muster a glimmer of sympathy for the alkys and crackheads who beg money.
But why does the press only notice this during Republican administrations?
