Box, Sweet Box

There was once a time in this prosperous nation, when these types of things were called "Hobo Camps"....
Or "Hoovervilles".

But today, in the lower-expectations, though enlightened Zerobama generation,
this is perceived as being 'Novel',
as being 'Avaunt Gard'.

compare the size of that 10-speed bicycle

Either way, this is a tragic sign of our future, everywhere.

Today there is an amazing story from the  high-and-mighty New York Times, about the tendency of some residents of both New York City and of San Francisco to choose to live in storage containers.  Although ornately painted on the outside, they are storage containers,
about 8 ft. x 4 ft., 36 square feet. 
- -And the story highlights one female NYC resident who can afford a huge, entire storage building in an alleyway
(the loser, her photos below...). 

 Lovingly lifted from The New York Times website:

was started last year by Luke Iseman, 32, and Heather Stewart, 30, who were then a couple. For Mr. Iseman, who graduated from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School and works in technology - most recently developing automated systems for watering plants
(In Oklahoma, we call those people 'gardners' or 'landscapers', OK?)
- container living has been a social experiment in stripping down to the basics, one that he hopes to teach others to replicate.
“If we can do it in one of the highest-cost places in the world,” he said, “people can do this anywhere.”

There's no electricity, no running water, no heating/cooling, no indoor cooking; no bathroom facilities in the desperation boxes.

Nowhere in the story is the blame properly placed upon the pathetic, sad state of affairs of the Zerobama regime's ugly economy, nor that of the near-death taxation rates of the two states in particular, New York or California, both Liberal-Blue to the core, replete with outrageous regulations and most importantly, wealth redistribution.

You could not possibly induce us two to move to either of those hell-holes, plus some others within the confines of the U.S. borders-

BUT what an amazing way to live in Excitement City~!
... Pissing and more on the sidewalks where your home was ~last night~, then managing to avoid the same, from others--& then rummaging through another restaurant's dumpster tonight!
