Living The Grecovery Dream: Two Jobless Parents, Two Kids, One Cat All Living In A Car

Living The Grecovery Dream: Two Jobless Parents, Two Kids, One Cat All Living In A Car (ZeroHedge, Oct 20, 2014):

Squeezed between steering wheel, handbrake, door and dashboard, Katerina reads in her history book, takes notes for school. Next to her, on the driver’s seat, cat Eddy stares right in the camera lens. It may look like a cute snapshot on a sunny day, if it wasn’t for a sad detail: a withering spring stuck in a roll of toilet paper.  A distinctive memory of a former normal life that turned into a grim reality for a family of four.

At night the seat where Katerina sits during the day turns into a bed for her sister Fay. Cat Eddy cuddles with Katerina on the back seat. Father Nikos and mother Maria sleep in shifts on the driver’s seat. When the one parent is in the car, the other spends the night on a bench of the park where the car has been parked, on a side road of Irakleio suburb of West Athens. “It’s dangerous when it gets dark,” Maria says “we have to watch out.”

  1. This sort of misery plays out all over America while millions of homes set empty.
    If this were even vaguely an enterprising nation, these two problems would be put together, and each could serve the other. Instead, greedy guts sit on millions of empty homes while millions live in their cars on on the streets.

    As some point, this will all blow up, and many will die. Towns outlaw homeless people as if that will solve the problem, making it impossible for them to stay there.
    Driving them from place to place all invites demigods to rise up……and I only hope the ones who die are the ones who deserve it.

    The US media doesn’t cover this, nor can you find much on the web. Meanwhile, it costs millions every time the president takes a plane trip…….this cannot continue. I see them everywhere, in shopping malls, wandering the streets…….seeking respite someplace. Things like laundry and bathing become difficult to find, so they are unclean, soon carrying bugs and disease most have never seen.

    This is another powerful reflection of the fall of America……
