  • I was thinking about the constant daily barrage of ever worsening financial news and it feel like watching a car wreck occur in slow motion or a train going off a cliff. As a bystander, their is nothing I can do to stop the accident. I can see the train start to lose control, then come off the tracks, then start to slide off the cliff, and finally go over the cliff but my screamed warnings of impending doom will not stop it from going off the cliff. I hate feeling so impotent in the face of such a coming catastrophe. I feel that this may be the point though. The only thing that we will have left is prayer and Our faith in Christ. Nothing else will save us in the coming doom.

  • When your neighbor loses his job, it's a recession.
    When YOU lose YOUR job, it's a depression.

    I've heard other variations on that as well.

    I know what Hristoroquen is talking about -- I live in one of the best areas of the US -- in my part of Texas, there are a lot of military and retired military, so a lot of people have a steady government-provided income to prop up the local economy here -- and retired people choose to stay here.

    But even here it's starting to change -- after all, there's only ONE US stock market, ONE US dollar, etc. You can only be so isolated.

  • Oh, and if you lived in Detroit, or a few other places like that, your perspective would be QUITE different.

    Forget Depression, you'd be claiming we're already in a full-blown collapse scenario (post-SHTF).
