This is one of those slices of life that you don't really see unless it's staring you in the face. I saw a blurb in The Week which was sourced from US News which leads back to this heartbreaking rough ride which takes you back to questionable sources like this but then you follow the links and you end up staring this in the face:
Schools in Harlan County had Kentucky's highest percentage of homeless students in the 2013-14 school year, with 26 percent classified as homeless.
T. Michael Howard, the superintendent of Harlan County Schools, said he thinks the number — 1,255 students — is accurate.
"We have so many students who move around, and they are no longer living with their parents but with family members," Howard said. "This is a poor, poor part of the state. We have kids who are living in campers, and that meets the definition of homeless."
And when the Democrats say they'll try to help (while also saying "We Are Going To Put A Lot Of Coal Miners & Coal Companies Out Of Business") but Trump says he'll "Make America Great Again" it makes sense to vote for certainty, even if you know it's a lie, and maybe you don't, because one in four of your fucking high schoolers is trying to get a diploma without a permanent address.
People don't want welfare, they want jobs. But the jobs aren't coming back, so how do you make them start voting for people who actually will give them welfare?
