Our Current Economic Crisis

Greetings and Salutations to All my Kith and Kin and All the Ships in Outer Space:

Are any of you being affected by our current national financial crisis?

Are you in danger of losing your home, your life's savings, your retirement pension, or your business?

I reckon I'm probably okay, because my own income is from Social Security, and I reside in a military retirement facility which is government operated.

Of course, that's assuming the economy doesn't completely collapse, and that the United States government is still able to function.

I don't own any stocks and bonds, and have no concept of how the stock market operates.

When I see those numbers and symbols being scrolled across a television screen, they mean absolutely nothing to me.

But, I am rather concerned that history may be repeating itself.

After all, didn't a very similar situation occur on Tuesday 29 October 1929?

Even the last minute desperate attempts to salvage the economic disaster appear eerily similar.

My big question regarding our government's proposed economic rescue attempt is, where is all this money coming from?

If our government is just going to print more paper money, then what is backing up that paper?

Recently, our government has been paying for recovery efforts following numerous natural disasters, such as hurricanes, forest fires, floods, earthquakes, et cetera.

In addition, we are spending a whole bunch of money fighting a war on two fronts.

For quite some time, our government has been losing money due to fraudulently subsidizing hordes of illegal aliens swarming throughout the country.

Also, there has already been previous government financial bolstering of failing private financial or industrial concerns.

So, again I raise this question:

Where is the money coming from?

Weren't we already deep in a financial hole?

Personally, I don't believe the Constitution of the United States grants our federal government any authority for doing this.

Do you see any such authority written anywhere in that august document?

I believe it's a clear violation of the Tenth Amendment.

What's going to happen when no country in the World will accept a United States dollar, because it has become worthless?

I think it would be wise for private individuals to begin now to stockpile canned foods, bottled drinking water, and other emergency survival supplies, just in case there's no longer anything on your local store shelves available for purchase.

If the national economy does totally collapse, and our government agencies cease being able to operate, then, regardless of existing law, the citizenry had better be armed and prepared to deal with violent anarchy.

There is yet another major problem with our federal government misappropriating taxpayer funds to salvage any failing private commercial enterprise.

Do you remember Adolf Hitler and the Third Reich?

What is the definition of National Socialism?

Is it not total government control over all financial, commercial, and industrial establishments?

I've written about this subject before, comparing our contemporary disregard for human life, evidenced by popular demand for abortion and euthanasia, citing our official government programs mandating (anti-White) racial quotas, and with references to Marxist-inspired "politically correct" language, hate crimes legislation, and hate speech legislation.

So, drawing vivid comparisons between Nazi Germany and American society today is no joke, nor even an extreme exaggeration.

What do you think?

As for the Great Depression of 1929, did you know that not everyone lost everything they had?

Some people actually prospered.

Of course, a national economic depression today would be much more disastrous than it was seventy-nine years ago.

Back in 1929, most Americans lived on family farms, knew how to survive off the land, and had each other to rely on.

Today, most Americans live in cities, any family members are generally far distant, and few average citizens possess even rudimentary survival skills, having become conditioned over such a long period to rely totally on government aid.

So, when it all comes down, how will you fare?

What are your plans for survival, should it become necessary?

Thank you.

Bravo! Well said. I see a lot of good analysis and ranting about what's going on with the economy recently, but there seems to be little practical info for us. You won't hear the mainstream media urging storage of necessary supplies, but thank you for saying it. I've been saying it, too.
By the way, I like the Iris DeMent, too. She's one of my favorites.
