Yar... I see yesterday. It's still worth watching. You just want somebody to give every adult in this damn thing a job. They're just in horrible shape and they're not bad people. What a horrible mess.
Yeah because no state has any welfare programs for kids.
Oh wait yes they do, free food, free clothes, free medical care, section 8 housing and if that fails a nice warm foster family.
Real poverty ended in America in the 50s. Now we have poverty that is brought about by druggies, thieves and welfare queens who plan on having kids to milk the system. Then they go on PBS and cry instead of taking responsibility for their own lives.
A "nice warm foster family"? A lot of those people are in it for the money only, and "warm" is the least of it. Others are sexual predators, like the people an acquaintance ended up with. They had two teenaged sons who repeatedly raped her until she ran away. Then she was the "troublemaker" for running away. Eventually she ended up homeless. I have no idea where she is now.
I did wonder whether these people could get some welfare or food stamps.
