‘Poor people don’t plan long-term.
We’ll just get our hearts broken’ [Link]
Boy does that ring true for millions in the UK.
Read the article if you want but the truth for many in the UK let alone the US is:-
“Why bother about tomorrow when there is so much that can finish you off today”.
It’s a really bad world for the poor, sick, disabled, and elderly in the UK.
That some do ‘all right’ is true but a shed load of others are living BELOW the bread line.
The rule of three (RO3) gets pushed to the limit by some parents going without food for days on end so their children can eat. Some having to dumpster dive for ‘out of date’ food. As for the elderly or poor? A main meal for some is cold beans from a tin.
Shelter is another RO3 choice for some to worry about with winter coming.
The choice will be simple. Heat or eat.
Even worse will be the pay the rent or heat and eat.
The worse case is eviction, being made homeless.
Some unable to cope will be giving their kids to relatives to raise or even worse destroying their kids lives completely by putting them into “government care” because THEY HAVE NO OTHER CHOICE. Thus families are being split apart.
Then they may sit there and wonder in their desperation.
Why does the UK government give so much away for foreign aid, to the EU, to immigrants, and to themselves as fat cat MP pay rises, when so many are suffering in the UK.
Why is so much given away yet so much is taken away from the least able to give.
Why are psychopaths like MP Iain Duncan Smith put in charge of the destruction of people’s lives?
What happened to make the rich so mad at the poor?
So mad that they prefer to trample them into the dirt?
Then they might remember.
The other political parties who let them down during the last election.
A chance to toss out the evil nasty party the Conservatives aka Tories was lost by infighting and stupid leadership by the opposition parties.
Hows about the other political parties saying they would follow the same policies of destroying the poor, sick, and disabled?
Who to vote for when all are run by the self-serving rich.
The Rule of Three’s (RO3)
- 3 seconds in violence.
All too common in the UK who (according to the UK government) is gun free!
- 3 minutes in bad air or no heart beat.
Pollution levels in the UK are getting worse. Our emergency services arrive but only to scoop up the bodies in some areas of the UK as they are either badly run or non-existent.
- 3 hours without shelter
No money for rent or bills, no shelter or heat. Winter is coming.
- 3 days without water/drugs
Curiously I’m not going to fault water but life saving drugs are often withheld in a bizarre post code (zip code) lottery of who will provide what. Drugs also cost money.
- 3 weeks without food
Parents going without for long periods.
Some suffering from illnesses caused by bad diets.
Vulnerable persons deprived of welfare support who starve with only the charities for help IF THEY ASK FOR IT.
Plan for the future!
When whole UK communities or sections of that community are trying to survive today?
