NOT Your 1930's Depression...


My husband reminds me that I should make a note on my blog whenever I have a new WorldNetDaily article up. Well, I do. This one is called NOT Your 1930's Depression.

A poster posted a comment pertinent to this article, but buried at the bottom of my last "Preparedness 101" entry. "Save The Canning Jars," could you re-post your comment here? I think everyone should see it.

    Moments ago, I had just finished reading Patrice's column on WND titled, Not Your 1930's Depression, when a family member walked into the room with today's edition of our local newspaper.

    On the front page was news that the local feeding mission (the one that my family supports) had been broken into and robbed. The tiny 4 ft. something director (the one I taught to bake bread for the masses) was on the cover explaining how she had been sharing the love of Jesus with an individual that someone cautioned her to stay away from. Well, the mission was robbed in the night.

    In Patrice's article, she pointed out that people will steal instead of work to meet their needs and this point was certainly the case in our community.

    In the WND piece, Patrice describes a time when instead of someone offering to split firewood for a meal, grandma gets tied up, perhaps pistol whipped or worse, and robbed. The work ethic seems to now be gone.

    Our family has been sensing the very thing Patrice has described. In fact, we've been taking our grandma to the range and to private classes in order to get her ready for concealed carry.

    It seems that the future is officially here.

  3. I'd say your article is right on regarding the atmosphere of today. We certainly live in interesting times! We are absolutely in for some level of hard times to come. What they may be remains to be seen. Keep preachin!

  4. C.J. I'm glad to hear no one was hurt (or worse) in the robbery. Shame shame shame on the robbers.

    And it's great to know you're getting ready to get Grandma strapped. Way to go. In my family the baddest cats in the jungle are the grandmothers. Give her a hug for me, ok?

  5. Seeing the indicators for a terrible time ahead for the U.S. (and the world), I'm relieved to know that my grandmas are safe from it all, where there is no pain or sorrow.

    Good article, Patrice, and hopefully an eye opener for at least a few people.
