What a Great Depression Would be Like Today In America.

In 1929 America was a place for self-reliant self-starters. There was no such thing as government welfare, food stamps and so called income tax credits that supplemented income rather than take money from underemployed workers.

Americans were able to deal with deprivation and knew how to live off the land. Today Americans would simply starve.

Cutting off money to the people government turned into totally dependent and helpless leaches will prove bloody. These people will resort to violence when their demands for entitlements fall on deaf ears.

Today we have millions of Americans addicted to expensive illegal narcotic drugs. They can be counted upon to give us a crime wave like we’ve never imagined.

The only growth industry I envision is private security and small arms sales. Will we as a people learn self-reliance and how to work together as a result of hard times?

Will charity return to replace government handouts? I don’t see a wartime economy improving things since we’ve been at war for several years.

The only salvation for America is to defeat Communism and Socialism. God help us all.

I ask everyone not to forget it and to recite it to obtain help in the battle against forces of darkness and against the spirit of this world."'

Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host -
by the Divine Power of God -
cast into hell, satan and all the evil spirits,
who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.

Amen.

I think arson investigator will be a growth industry if all the doom and gloom naysayers are even half-way correct.

Houses and buildings will burn as if in an epidemic for two reasons: anger over not getting 'bailed out' (think Watts riots) and for the insurance money if there is any.

All The Best,
