Disneyland is the Happiest Place on Earth! Millions of families visit the theme park every year to enjoy the magical place of rides, spectacular shows and cheerful cartoon figures. Everything is clean, perfect and joyful. Unless … you realize that Cinderella might actually be homeless. That’s right, 10% of Disneyland’s employees are actually homeless, many more are on food stamps, and 75%struggle to make ends meet.

Does this ring familiar? Think of America. Behind the façade of being the greatest country on Earth with the largest GDP and the wealthiest billionaires, there are tens of millions of Americans who are left behind just like Disney’s employees.

This neo-feudalistic model isn’t isolated to Disney or Walmart, it’s systemic. For example, the bus driver at Apple – which has $280 billionin cash – is forced to sleep in a van because he can’t afford the Silicon Valley rent…

  1. Like this will ever happen, corporations will share profit. Coeporations are top down totalitarian, entities. More bs from ayn rand fascist, suckups. Free enterprise! Sounds so charming and utopian. My grandfather had to fight , with his union to survive in the 30s and even 40s and 50s. The last time the 1 % owned 40% or more of the country it was as bad as this. The last great depression. People never learn.

  2. The true numbers of homeless people cannot be known because many are living in vehicles, motels, abandoned buildings and are camping out in wooded areas if they happen to be somewhere near wooded areas otherwise they are camping out on sidewalks in cities all across America.

    I had heard years ago that many Disneyland employees were occupying motels strung along the highway to Disneyland and that the owners of the motels were trying to kick them all out because the owners wanted to increase motel fees during peak season, but were unable to because the rooms were occupied by live-ins.

    The situation is only going to get worse because since corporations know that people will tolerate whatever is dished out to them, what is the incentive for them to treat their workers better? There is none. The workers don’t complain. They continue to show up for work, do as they are told and take home little pay for their hard work. People have been conditioned to accept this as the status quo and no matter what is said, the sheeple have been rendered powerless and ineffective for if not, then why simply acquiesce to this? Instead, because their lives are too pathetic for words, they simply turn to other means to escape; drugs of some form or another to dull the senses enough to tolerate such an existence. This is what we have been reduced to, sadly.

    • Shelby and Doug, thanks for your lengthy thoughtful comments about the bleak state the US finds itself in. You describe the current hopeless situation of America and Americans very poignantly. My only reaction is to feel even more depressed. And I agree with Doug – people need to organize and resist, by forming unions and protest organizations. I have found it somewhat easier to organize in New Zealand than in the US (we are a very poor country and can’t afford to pay that many spooks to spy on this).

      • But Dr. Bramhall, we are in this position because we will not organize, we will not sustain a protest. We ALL need to boycott buying, paying bills and even working. We ALL need to do this for it to work. Jeff Bezos couldn’t make a penny if the worker drones did not show up. Walmart would cease to exist if people stopped running through their doors and instead, depended on each other. We won’t do that because we are too busy hating on each other. We are divided into groups who are then subdivided and thus it continues. We look at each other as the enemy when in reality, we have a common enemy and it is our government and huge corporations. The corporations know that we will never figure it out and rise up because we have been programmed by the propaganda they feed us to believe that the problem lies with this group or that group, but never is it the fact that corporations are making a mint while people suffer, writhe in horrible agony and then die! What is going to have to happen to change all of this? Quite actually, only a severe natural disaster of monumental proportions could grind this all to a halt because believe me, people coming together to get it done will never happen. That is just wishful thinking.

            • I love the comments, Shelby. They’re the best part of this blog. I don’t think there’s any way to reblog a reblog. But possibly you could use the Press This function and then copy and paste the comments underneath the automatic link this generates? It might take awhile but I think it might be worth it to share this great discussion.

      • I have had 5 friends go homeless in the last year. One has two little kids. She was an Lpn. I have lost touch with her. Another worked for amazon. He Could not keep up. Another works, but has a bad leg. Masters degree. Living In a car now. A friend working at swedish, has a masters, lost job, homeless now. It was after a divorce, custody battle. She is very nice too. Probably moving. It is awful. None of us are gulpers. All vegans or vegetarians. 2 have no cars. We are not shoppers. There are many homeless in small towns too. I have never seen anything like this, in my life!

        I have a relative who owns 100 slummy apartments. Always bragging about how she has doubled the rents in the past two years from 500 to 1100. Just a goddamned opportunist and slumlord. She says market values and demand keep going up. Most people who rent from her are working poor, who have to work more than one job and pay 2/3 their wages in bills and rent. A slum property with shitty maintenance.

        It is like that all over the us now. Shelby is right, not to feed the monster. Many people cannot afford to anyway. I would go to any grocer but, never walmart. There is a walmart up north that is almost all autmated now. Who needs that shit!

        Trump has cut transportation for the disabled , blind, poor, kids. Also food. I organize as best I can. All the frikin morons who voted for trump, are getting screwed now. The mind fucking propaganda they use on the inet and tv is unbelievable. I hate hillrys guts too.

        Many sliding-scale health and dental are clinics closing.

        Trump will start shutting down VA hospitals soon for us veterans. What an evil, ugly nightmare and mess.
        How stupid can people be?

I am sending as many people as I can in here for them to read this because it is just heartbreaking what so many people are going through and like you, I have never seen things this bad! Everywhere I go, people are just too depressed and despondent for words and folks wonder why there is an opioid epidemic. I don’t wonder because people need an escape from this shit! I’d want to be drunk or high myself if I was living out of a car! For the love of !!!!

          • I HAVE LIVED IN HOMELESS SHELTERS AND KNOW THE FEELING!!! WHAT I AM CONCERNED ABOUT NOW, IS THEIR MECHANISMS OF PLACING MOST OF THE POPULATION IN FEMA CAMPS, AND THEM WANTING PEOPLE TO WEAR THE MARK OF THE BEAST. THIS IS HAPPENING ON A GLOBAL LEVEL, BUT FIRST IN ORDER FOR THEM TO DO SO, THEY MUST CONQUER THE USA, WHICH IS AN EXTENSION OF THE UK ANYWAY, BUT STILL MUST BE CONQUERED. ONCE THIS IS ACCOMPLISHED THIS PLANET IS GOING TO SEE EVENTS LIKE IT NEVER HAS SEEN BEFORE, OR WILL SEE AGAIN, COMPOUNDED WITH CERN OPENING PORTALS, FOR EVIL BEINGS TO INFILTRATE THIS PLANET. THE NEPHILIM WILL RETURN AGAIN. WE ARE ALL HEADED FOR A WHIRLWIND OF TRAGEDIES. WE WILL HAVE DEMONS ENTERING AND INHABITING ROBOTS, AND EVERY KNOWN EVENT THAT HAS NOT BEEN BEFORE. YES satan IS TAKING ONE FINAL STEP, PRIOR TO THE RETURN OF JESUS CHRIST AND BEING PLACED INTO THE ABYSS.

        • MANY PEOPLE GOT SCREWED VOTING FOR OBAMA, JUST THE SAME AS TRUMP. THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER IN REALITY, IS THAT OBAMA AND TRUMP HAVE DONE A MARVELOUS JOB TRYING TO CONVINCE PEOPLE THAT THEY ARE APPLES AND ORANGES, WHEN THEY ARE ACTUALLY TWO PEAS IN A PIE. THEY ARE SECRETLY WORKING TOGETHER, TRYING TO LEVEL THIS COUNTRY INTO A THIRD WORLD AND THEN INTO THE NEW WORLD ORDER. YES, THEY ARE SECRETLY WORKING TOGETHER, IT IS TWO SIDES AGAINST THE MIDDLE. WE HAPPEN TO BE IN THE TOOTSIE ROLL CENTER THAT BOTH OF THEM WANT TO DESTROY. THERE IS NO DOUBT BOTH OF THEM ARE WORKING FOR THE NEW WORLD ORDER, AND A MOVEMENT TOWARDS THE ANTI-CHRIST. MIND YOU, OUTSIDE OF THE THEATRICAL PERFORMANCES, THEY ARE THE BEST OF FRIENDS.

  4. I think this goes well with this article. America is in sad shape. You can see it at the street level. Along the gulf coast there are fer seagulls or birds at all. Rents are so jacked up all over the country, people are barely making it. Like the great depression. The orange haired turd and bastard repuks is what we got for it. The same corporate devils with the fake progressives that caused it. My grandaddy is rollin over in his grave.

    Most of what people think they see, in murica are gutter lies, manipulative smelly horsecrap, psychotic conspiracy confabulation madeup by rightwing hacks, hyperintellectualized inanity.  Many people like me  have done every job there is, in crudhole murica. Worked in nuclear plants. Breathed industrial chemical poison, or radioactive  dust in muricas backbone ,industrial pukeholes. 

    We have cleaned at mcdonalds. Bagged groceries. Dug ditches. Shoveled horse crap. If people came even close to getting payed, by how hard, they had to work, and how dangerous a lot of peoples work is, maybe things would be different.  The entitled think the sugar machine never ends.

    It is now becoming the law of diminishing returns.  If many more people were given decent places to live , decent healthcare in this rotten  place, maybe things, would be a lot different . Maybe things might be different for many, in this assinine blowhard, parallel universe .  This degenerating-crudhole society. But they are not. 

    If every month a person like a sociology college professor, a quack blowhard doctor who constantly misdiagnoses overprecribes garbage drugs , and spends most of its time bitching about crappy private and medicare reimbursements had to really work. If a slimeass lawyer, had to work a day a month, at a burger king or, in a smelly dangerous chemical  industrial plant, or as a  low end medical aid or bedpan nurse . If they had to work a day a month at amazon or at walmart, or as a cop, things would be different. 

    If they  had to pay 2/3 of their income in a ghetto tenament for rent, w no access to medical care, barely paying bills, watching this crummy society fall apart around them…….

    If crooked politicians and their sire …….

    Maybe people who work hard,  would get paid ok . Maybe more would have a decent place to live, healthcare, food that is not riddled with nasty-poison chemicals, maybe things would be different. Maybe the people who have comforts, would stop bitching about the  other people , they percieve less than human and, become semi 
    -human themselves.

    If more people here, saw the real murica, maybe there would be some changes. 

    If people from africa saw the way things really are  here, for most people:The garbage, the violence, the smugness. There is the fraudulent- med care there is overindulgence in the junky phoney-wasteful, fake society . Piles of chemical and redioactive garbage. The chronic illness from the pollution and poisonous-fake abundance, the overconsumption. 

    It they saw, what most likely awaits most of them, if  they come here: The hate, the itinerant shelter, maybe they would rally to save their own countries that still have some clean water , air, and soil. If scumwad muricans saw reality, maybe they would do something with the evil demon 
    Killers leaders. The liars and scumbags that make a mockery of democracy. The criminal politicians ,   that are destroying africa and the rest of the world. That are destroying this country. 
    Maybe there would be incentive and help for the africans to do something about their own countries.
    And yet,  all the dumn monkeys here,  ignore the ecocidal destruction of life support that makes them fat, stupid, makes their children be birth defects, makes everyone hate everyone else,   in this chemical-radioactive sewer. 

    If you  saw the lousey, delapidated boarding houses, with 100 rooms in major cities. The firetrap boarding houses that have feces on the walls in the main halls, shared toilets an 8 by 10 room for 800 hundred a month, with 3 african refugees in each 8 by 10 room . African refugees that go to Mcdonalds down the street, for free wifi.

    All the chaos, waste, violence, nonsensical bullcrap, walking over homeless people in craphole cities. If you stopped and really saw and, talked to young people who cannot afford to move out of their parents houses. Talked to young people and working poor families, that work three crap jobs, to pay 1100 a month for a slumhole.

    There are the more priviliged, working at chemical plants. They breath smelly-crap-poisons, that will kill them in 15 years. Working in filthy-chemical plants,  makes half the kids they sire retarded with birth defects. They work there, so they can drive that nice big truck.  So they can contribute further , to the huge islands of garbage in the  ocean, the size of texas. Have more water, full of radium from fracking and cars and coal plants, yet the illusion must go on.

    There are a lot fewer birds in many cities in murica,  not many because of pesticides, fuku, car exhaust, nucular power trash. 75 percent of insects in n hemisphere dead. 

    Nuclear power plants on the verge of blowups and fuel fires , that constantly belch radioactive tritium dioxide in with the water vapor from their cooling towers.  Deadly tritium dioxide dispersed  en masse, into the environment.

    Whats left of wildlife in murica, are coyotes and crows, moving into degenerate-urban human sprawls, to eek it out for a while.

    There are the molycoddled sycophants and suckasses of the entitled,   who have lived comfortably, as librarians et al, and cannot really think for themselves . They prattle on about payed political hack racists and demagogues. Canned republican neoracist gibberish w Loser  demagoues and pseudointellectual trolls to boot. 

    Demented idiots living on social security and or some bloated pension, they do not deserve, watch fox tv. The same fox tv, where a talking head tells them to vote for asses, that want to further degrade them, screw them and everyone else over. The talking heads want to  bomb more innocents all over the world into oblivian. They relish keeping murica, up to its neck in blood.

    Their are engineers and workers. There are adminstators, vampire ceos, sukasses, criminal politicians, wall street vampire squids living comfortably. They create the weapons and munitions . The death machines for the empire, to massacre innocent people, all over the world. Death munitions, arms, and machines that turn people outside murica into refugees.
    Depleted uranium munitions.

     Of course, the refugees are forced to cum to this degenerating-chemical-radioactive , sewerhole . Many end up in poverty or, maybe 1 or two can be sociology professors..

    Meanwhile, The Vampire squid shitheads that  pedantic college  professors call,  masters of the universe, in their suckass intellecualized diversions talk, enourage the propaganda. Wall street vampire squid, hedge fund “managers” are destroying peoples pension funds, gulping resources en masse, killing what is left OF THE ENVIRONMENT,. They are pushing more people to the edge, in this damnable-eraserhead nightmare.

    What is left of an eco-system, in this fake fraudulent chemical, radioactive craphole,  In this police and, nuclear-security state, is rapidly dying.

    There are  far fewer birds, anywhere in the putrid usa. All of the puppet-show people with their rosecolored glasses, never notice it. There are not so-many birds because, of pesticides. 

    There are the chemical and coal plants.  There is the fracking , that poisons our water with radium. There is the jet exhuast, the car exhaust, nucular power trash. 75 percent of the insects, in the n hemisphere are dead. Most birds are gone. U cannot eat fish, from the great lakes. Really, not even the ocean.

  5. PEOPLE REALLY DO NOT NEED TO BE GIVEN ANYTHING. WHAT WOULD BE A SOLUTION IS, IF PEOPLE HAD A STRONG AND EXTREME DESIRE TO FOLLOW THE TEN COMMANDMENTS, OBEY THE WORD OF OUR HEAVENLY FATHER YAHVEH, THEN THINGS WOULD FALL INTO PLACE AS THEY SHOULD BE, BUT AS LONG AS PEOPLE HAVE A ME COMPLEX AND WANT TO DO THINGS THEIR WAY, AND NOT THE WAY OF THE HEAVENLY FATHER YAHVEH, THIS CAN NOT NOR EVER WILL BE. FOR THIS VERY REASON, IS WHY WE ARE ALL SUFFERING.

  6. I have seen successful people, become ill, go through divorce, get cancer, lose a child and then lose it all in seattle. They have become homeless.

    I know a pediatrician, he is is going through a nasty divorce. He is living in his car.

    75,000 homeless teenagers in washington state. Who knows how many other children.

    When 20% of the country owns 80 % of everthing, this happens. It happened during the last great depression. It is like monopoly. One person gets all the property, and the prices are so hi, no one can afford rent or to buy anymore. When 1/2 of seattle is homeless, maybe something will happen.
    People should read The Grapes Of Wrath. Poverty, desperation, broken faith, reality. Especially in the ending, where the pregnant young gal, who thought god would help her, starves to death-homeless.
    And in this terrible time in american history we get fuko the clown and this. Ben Carson wants peoples rents tripled while he buys a 31,000 china shelf at taxpayers expense. What a wonderful, compassionate christian, this fuk is. His college, paid for by us his wealth was accumulated from american taxpayers in medicare payments from us. Never more evil, greed, warmongering, lying in america before.

    • I AM NOT SAYING THAT PEOPLE SHOULD SUFFER; WHAT I AM SAYING IS THAT THEY SHOULD BE IN SEARCH OF THE TRUTH, AND EDUCATE THEMSELVES ON EVENTS. TOO MANY OF THE MASSES FOR TOO LONG OF TIME HAVE JUST LET THINGS RIDE THE WAY THE ARE. NOW WE ARE LIVING IN FATAL TIMES, WHERE PEOPLE HAVE NO CHOICE, BUT TO OPEN THEIR EYES AND MINDS WITH REALITY. ALSO, WE ARE SUFFERING, BECAUSE FOR THE MOST PART PEOPLE WANT TO REMAIN IN IGNORANCE. WE ARE ALSO SUFFERING, BECAUSE PEOPLE LEFT OUR HEAVENLY FATHER AND CREATOR YAHVEH OUT OF OUR LIVES, AND INSTEAD CHOOSE TO TRUST IN POLITICIANS, ETC…AND HAVE TURNED SCIENCE INTO THE NEW FOUND RELIGION. EVERYDAY I SUFFER MYSELF DUE TO THIS PEOPLE CREATED MATRIX, I AM ALSO IN POVERTY MYSELF. EVERYDAY I SUFFER AND OTHERS WHO DO NOT FOLLOW THE MASSES, FROM A POPULATION WHO JUST PLAINLY STINK. THERE ARE STINKING PEOPLE EVEN IN POVERTY, WHO COULD CARE LESS ABOUT THE TRUTH, AND WHAT CAUSES THEM TO BE IN POVERTY.

  7. ONE OF THE THOUSANDS OF REASONS AMERICAN IS POOR AND HOPELESS, IS THESE MASSES CONTINUE TO TRUST THE MAIN STREET MEDIA, INSTEAD THEY SHOULD BE LOOKING FOR THE CAUSES AND EFFECTS. IN ORDER TO ACCOMPLISH THIS, THEY NEED TO READ BLOGS SUCH AS YOURS AND MANY OTHERS, AND LOOK INTO MUCH OF THE ALTERNATIVE MEDIA. IT IS A MISFORTUNE THAT ARE LEADING THEMSELVES A STRAY, BY CONTINUING TO RESIDE IN THEIR COMFORT ZONES. JESUS CHRIST EVEN TOLD US THAT THE TRUTH WILL SET US FREE, BUT YOU SEE PEOPLE ARE NOT SEARCHING FOR THE TRUTH, THEY MUCH SOONER “GO TO BED” WITH FALSE PROPHETS AND FALSE LEADERS, THAT TELL THEM LIES.
