Reminds me of the 1996 Atlanta Olympics.

Corporate Olympics Gold
Quote
...For the world's giant corporations and Atlanta's big investors, the 2 million visitors coming to watch the 1996 Summer Olympics mean big bucks. For Atlanta's inner-city residents and homeless, it means police sweeps -- one on July 11 around Atlanta University Center resulted in 36 arrests -- and bus tickets to get out of town.

With the world's eyes on Atlanta, it's no surprise that some of the world's biggest corporations are making sure they're seen -- and the homeless aren't. Near downtown the city built a new Olympic Park where the sponsoring companies have put up elaborate tents for commercial pavilions.

In the center of the park is a large statue with the Olympic torch at the top -- and under it in a ring, in bold red and black, is a Coca Cola sign.

And Coke's not alone; no occasion is too solemn for selling TV commercial time. Each of the ubiquitous ringed Olympic symbols or torches carries the name of a corporate sponsor.

The New York Times said the Atlanta games are "the brassiest commercialism ever" in Olympics history. That didn't stop the Times from getting its own corporate name on one of those signs.

More and more people are losing their houses, often through no fault of their own. The property that the house my husband and I live in and pay rent for is being sold (just found out today, but have been suspecting it for a while)...The thing is, I think they're gonna boot us out and level the houses here, and my husband and I don't know where we're gonna go yet. We're gonna go look for houses next week. The taxes just got to be too much for the old lady who was our landlord.  :(

Reminds me of the 1996 Atlanta Olympics.

ya it also happened during the 2002 winter olympics in salt lake city.
there was an article in one of the las vegas newspapers about how the mayor had been giving the homeless lottery tickets and paying for the greyhound bus ride or something.

Quote
There was a dust-up between the mayors of Salt Lake City and Las Vegas over the homeless. A few months ago, Oscar B. Goodman, the mayor of Las Vegas, accused Salt Lake City and Olympic officials of shipping the homeless from Utah to Nevada to clean the streets for the tourists and the news media attending the Games. Atlanta suffered a black eye during the 1996 Summer Games when it rounded up thousands of homeless people and bused them out of town in an operation called Homeward Bound.

Renting is just throwing your money into a black hole.  Own if you can.  At least you will have a tax deductable investment.

My house payment is $1,550 a month.  But I can use the taxes and interest as a tax write off.  For now anyway.  Not to mention I own a long term investment.  Over the long term houses always gain in value.  Key fraise being "long term".

If you really want to get some insight into this (actually another sub-elite level of the issue), watch the movie Anatomy.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0187696/

Here is the script:

All eyes are opened, or opening, to the rights of man. The general spread of the light of science has already laid open to every view the palpable truth, that the mass of mankind has not been born with saddles on their backs, nor a favored few booted and spurred, ready to ride them legitimately

Be careful on those, get some real estate investing books make sure you understand it from their view and make sure you bring any contract to an real estate attorney, most people who try that get burned. Almost always something is snuck in there that would either force you to buy before you can afford or give up your equity.

yes this is a ongoing scam in Australia... they wait a year and demand full payment within a few months and if you can pay they take the house back and you don't get a cent....

it takes a real vile person to masquerade as a savior and then laugh as you pull the rug....

Hi Rawiron.

Included you will find 2 seperate reports, note the dates, this has been going on for many years. After checking out some figures you will find that they are fairly close in their stats.
You have found a topic that is a high alert factor, especialy so for poverty areas and street people.

By David Krajicek
2,300 a Day
Reports of missing persons have increased sixfold in the past 25 years, from roughly 150,000 in 1980 to about 900,000 this year. The increase was driven in part by the country's growing population. But the numbers also indicate that law enforcement treats the cases more seriously now, including those of marginalized citizens.

An astounding 2,300 Americans are reported missing every day, including both adults and children.

But only a tiny fraction of those are stereotypical abductions or kidnappings by a stranger.

For example, the federal government counted 840,279 missing persons cases in 2001. All but about 50,000 were juveniles, classified as anyone younger than 18.

The National Center for Missing Adults logo

As of December 31, 2007, there were 105,229 active missing person records in NCIC. Juveniles under the age of 18 accounted for 54,648 (51.93%) of the records, and 12,362 (11.75%) were for juveniles between the ages of 18 and 20.*

During 2007, 814,967 missing person records were entered into NCIC, a decrease of 2.53% from the 836,131 records entered in 2006. Missing person records cleared or canceled during the same period totaled 820,212. Reasons for these removals include: the subject was located by a law enforcement agency; the individual returned home; or the record had to be removed by the entering agency due to a determination that the record was invalid.

In 2007, there were 518 records entered as Abducted by a Stranger; 299,787 entered as Runaway; and 2,919 entered as Abducted by Non-Custodial Parent. This only accounts for 303,224 entries of the 418,967 entered, or 72.4%, which is an increase from 297,632 entries of the 836,131 entered, or 35.6%, in 2006. The Missing Person Circumstances field is optional and has been available since July 1999 when the NCIC 2000 came online. This is not an accurate reflection of the actual circumstances of all the entries.

I attribute this to murder , body parts, sex slavery rings, cannibalism and human sacrifice, of course a percentage are runaways. We can not ignore the fact that the great majority are not accounted for nor will be.

Hard to beleive, I understand. If so you will find that human sacrifice rites exist, to some human flesh is a delicacy (recipes are on the net), and body part rings have been broken up, however the money involved is enormous, clandestine body parts of teenagers is incredibly high, as is adolesants.

a million people a year is a good enough sized population for them to be able to get away with a pretty broad range and scope of experimentation, imho.

I hope to GOD that's not what's happening, but a million people a year is kinda hard to miss. :-\

Homeless disappearing

San Francisco

... more than 1,000 others have disappeared from its welfare rolls
and the Department of Human Services, which administers the program, has no idea where they've gone.


Los Angeles

Skid Row is missing 705 homeless people, according to a recent head
count by the Los Angeles Police Department

Central Division Officers found that the number of homeless people dropped from 1,876
on Sept. 18 to 1,171 six weeks later.

Last Wednesday, there was a noticeable change on Skid Row. On a warm
afternoon, the number of homeless encampments and people walking the street appeared to have declined.

Sacramento

In sacramento a few months ago, Union Pacific went and got a court
order to throw out the homeless on their property,

but when they showed up to throw 'em out, they were already
gone....Funny thing is (well, not funny, but weird), is that

they LEFT ALL THEIR STUFF. Now, a normal, uninformed person would say,
"hey, they were in a hurry, and just left

their stuff in the excitement."

Well, have you ever met a homeless person? THEY NEVER LEAVE THEIR
STUFF. ANYWHERE. Their "stuff"

(shopping carts filled with garbage, their tents, their blankets) is
THEIR LIFE. That's like us abandoning our children or something.

Denver

"And you'd think that, with such a huge influx of people and wealth,
panhandlers would be all over the place trying to get

as much money from the delegates, press, staff, and politicians as
they possibly could. But they aren't there. They're not

just invisible, they're actually gone."

LA

Estella Lopez's letter states that "instead of an average 2,100 calls a month involving sick or mentally ill people, last month we [the Central City East Assn.] received 729." Where did all the sick and mentally ill people go? Did they go to jail? Did they get dispersed to other parts of the city and county?

Tacoma's panhandling ban: Where did they all go?

"It's extremely dramatic," Landenburg says with some surprise at her law's rapid success. "One day we'd see a lot of people on the street corners, and then next day they were gone. It appears that it was almost overnight."

Indeed, I didn't see any panhandlers during a full day spent walking and driving around the city. Not one.

What happened to all the homeless folk that used to populate the leeward beaches on Oahu?

Did the Satellite images get doctored so that we can't see the homeless tent cities any more?

What the heck happened at Pigeon Park?

Can't believe how empty the City's most neglected park has been these days. Pigeon Park, which sits at the corner of Carrall and Hastings has always been the runt of the Parks Board litter. Despite that, the park is consistently full of people. Folks sitting, talking, and of course (this is the DTES), using on occasion.

But not anymore. The park is completely empty.

Like empty empty. Nobody. And it's been this way for weeks now.

Where did all the homeless people go?

The scores of homeless people huddled in boxes at the centre of one of the world's richest cities was an iconic image of Thatcherism. But how many people know that under the current government, the number of rough sleepers has been slashed by two thirds?

Moscow

Nowadays, a few homeless kids still show up in the parks and underpasses in the city centre, but they quickly disappear and you seldom see them twice. Now the mystery is: Where did they go?

Smoky trucks and the homeless disappearing, some said not true. In Denver 500-700 homeless population disappeared overnight. Didn't care about 5000 disappearing from Louisiana. Sinister wicked people to kill homeless and incinerate in smoky trucks. He can't even make this stuff up. For sake of saving lives, sit up and take notice. As long as knock on door at night isn't on your door, you will wonder when does knock come on your door. We've got to say, things coming apart FAST.
