Brother Can You Spare A Jacket/Dime
28 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

This Golden Girl's Season 4 Episode 8 first aired in December 1988, back when there were A Plethora of Folk's Young & Old, here in The Good Ole United States of America, whom did Actively Struggle for their Next Meal, and also Adequate Housing as well, too! Today, In The Year of Our Lord 2016 there are approx. 17 Million Children in These United States of Amerika whom "Do Actively Struggle in Poverty/Nutrition/Housing, never mind the other Citizen's as well i.e. Senior Citizen's over 62 years young as well, too! Something that We will rarely see, or hear on The 6, 7 or 11 O'clock News, that's for darn sure, especially in what is still considered "One of The Top Ten Wealthiest Nation's on In The Entire World in 2016" as well, too! The Days of Walter Cronkite, Huntley & Brinkley have been over for several decades now, without a doubt, too! Now if that is not "Beyond A Food For Thought Moment", I and many others surely & truly Do Not Know what truly is to Date. again in 2016 as well, too! Do make a great day happen, whenever "you" possibly can now, you hear~Enjoy!
