USA tent 'cities' on rise as US economy crumbles (23Dec11)

Uploaded by on Dec 24, 2011

Tent "cities" are springing up and enlarging across the USA as more are forced out of homes by the crooked bankers, as they receive corporate welfare from the government to carry on defrauding taxpayers. Meanwhile politicians like President Obama look on as he gives bankers money.

Letter from freed slave to master creates buzz: A letter from a freed former slave to his onetime master was reportedly written in August 1865, but it has people talking this week because of its remarkable balance of civility, cynicism and smarts.
BET bans Nikki Minaj video: Nicki Minaj has used shock value to stay in the spotlight and to stand out from other hip-hop acts. But it looks like her latest video for BET went a little too far.
Susan G. Komen pulls money from Planned Parenthood: Yesterday a Komen spokesperson told the Associated Press that the foundation, which has raised more than $1 billion for breast-cancer research, education and prevention, had simply changed its funding policies to exclude any organization under investigation by local, state or federal authorities. But in a widely circulated statement, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards cried foul.

Previous video I edited of TV news stories about Raymond Karbel: "Meet My Neighbor" http://youtu.be/zqw5Dm6mNVM

This is my next door neighbor. They had to wear hasmat suits to enter the house, the ammonia was so strong. All those buildings, sheds and vehicles on his old property were crammed with junk. I was there to help him one day; I saw it.

He has stolen each of my dogs and kept them for many hours, without telling me. He vandalized my gasoline-power bicycle. He drove a fence post through the parachute that covers my trailer. He threatened to beat and kill me. When he agreed to help me get my goats, he stranded me seven miles from town and I had to hitch hike home.

He is the landlord's "friend," so complaining, I've been warned, will get me evicted. The landlord is an ex-cop (and self-described "bible thumper.") He has the local police convinced I'm just being petty and "paranoid" for expressing concerns.

He has 2 of those little "pug" dogs and a large white dog. They are neurotic, frightened, anxious, aggressive and hostile. They bark, shriek, fight and scream under my bed window for hours at all times of day or night. He used to have a very deranged, sick-smelling, black dog that would climb the flimsy, chicken wire "fence" he erected ON my parachute, garden hose and DSL line; come in my yard and try to kill my cats. I don't know what happened to that dog. I guess it finally escaped; I haven't seen her in months. He's only had the pugs and the white dog a few months. They arrived here normal and healthy. Now, they're really disturbed.

Ray tries to take my dogs any time they get out of my yard. The landlord says he's "helping" me...by keeping my dog for 12 hours, without telling me, and reporting to a neighbor that he did it because I "don't take care" of my dogs? right.

He's really scary.
