    I didn't know Tommy Chong was living in NJ.


    Next time I'm in Lakewood, I'm checking this out. I guess I'll bring a can of peas. Or is it canapes?

    Shortly after Barry H. took office, there were stories about how these Obamavilles were popping up in California and Washington. I'm surprised there aren't more of them. Either that or the media isn't covering it (that wouldn't surprise me either).

    My aunt collects clothes, blankets & food, stuff like that, and brings them over to Tent City. She actually has a few friends among the residents. Once, she went to volunteer her time to help out, and was mistaken for one of them. (She doesn't much care about her personal appearance, and kinda looks disheveled. Love her anyway.)

    She actually is a very cool lady.

    The government's definition of "living in poverty" is absolute bullshit.

    Show me one person who can actually survive (solo) on 11k a year, the governments definition of "poverty". 11k a year doesn't even get you a single room in a flophouse. I bet nobody in politics lives like that.

    Why is the government fucking with these people? (I know, shelters, motels etc..but that's expensive) If they get evicted, they should camp at the lawyer's house who evicted them.

    For those of you unfamiliar with Lakewood Township, the town is owned and operated by a certain group of ppl that wear funny little round hats and their name rhymes with "acidic news"... Yeah, its their fault.

    I've done it while going to school. It's not fun, but absolutely possible. Paid $215 in rent (had three roommates), ate ramen and hot dogs most of the time, and didn't have video game systems or any of that bullshit. $11,000 may be impossible to live off of in Manhattan, but for most of the country it's absolutely enough to get by.

    No it .. really isnt. unless you want to rent a 1 room apartment in someone elses place and bus/train to work... no.
    Everyone deserves a house. You work for it, you get it. You pay for it, the taxes are insane (especially in NJ) but you keep fucking working for it.
    Its a bad time, which means you have to try extra hard to get what you want.. or settle for being a bum.

    I can't tell if you're being sarcastic, but we're talking about "surviving", not living comfortably and being financially secure. I consider surviving as having an inhabitable building to live in, enough food for a balanced diet, and money for basic utilities (water, sewage, heat, and electricity). Sure you have to make sacrifices like having roommates, not eating out, not having cable, and so on, but when it comes to "surviving" it's more than possible (again, in all but the most expensive areas of the country).

    No, everyone does not.

    I dont have the time for sarcasm anymore. No I wasnt. These are harsh times we live in. Your in north Cali , I'm in beautiful Beverly NJ (Beautiful if you like being the 12% of the white population). Surviving is important. Trust me your talking to someone that shouldve been dead 3 years ago. Believe it or not... between WB and TRUEWDT ... doing pretty good. Just hang in there, do what you have to do and when people see you are working hard to do that things improve. People do notice. And if they Dont... make them notice.
