I almost was in tears yesterday at Aldi's one of the least expensive grocery stores in my area.
We had a 2/3 full grocery basket! I felt like I was hoarding food and keeping others from purchasing food.
1/3 of people shopping were not using any sort of a cart and had less than 10 items at the register.
No one had a full basket and many were purchasing 4 tiny rolls of toilet paper for $1. Very few were purchasing frozen food items.
We voted our stomachs in the last election but we still were not heard. In St Louis we are going to have more foreclosures this year than last year already announced. The banks know of their inventories.
At one of St Louis' best day shelters this past week there was "no one" using the nicely done library with computers to search for jobs.
The blame should not be on education but on those who have destroyed a free market which has provided motivation and hope.
Missouri has made it so individuals seeking clinics who do not have all the papers requested cannot get serive...so where do they go? To the Hospital Emergency Rooms whose costs are then passed on to those who are able to pay! Something is so wrong.
We all need hope and direction and not making the rich or government take over our lives.
Thank you for letting me have my right of free speach.
