Recent hard times like the Great Depression? Hardly!

As hard as it has been for some, it is exasperating to hear people compare recent economic problems in America with the Great Depression. Such abysmal knowledge of American history… look at these images and see what it was like back then and share your thoughts on what you see.

At that time folks would take ANY job, but there were NONE to be had. NOW people won’t take jobs because “it doesn’t pay as much as unemployment.” That attitude, plus the extended benefits, seriously damages people’s chances to find any job, because being out of the work force in any capacity for up to 2 years makes prospective employers suspicious of their work ethic and less likely to hire them.

Oh, and in case you didn’t know, unemployment rules overtly discourage people from volunteering or helping out for free in hopes of being noticed and maybe getting hired because, for every hour that you help out for nothing, they dock your benefits. This forces people to choose between either lying or not volunteering/helping out AT ALL. Such a policy is EVIL and DESTRUCTIVE.

It is a well-known fact that people who are already employed in ANY capacity have a better chance of being hired for another job, as long as they keep looking.

People back then (and some still now) were right to be suspicious of accepting government help/benefits because the “strings” attached are really chains.

“We’re from the government; we’re here to help.”


Line Between Twilight Zone and Reality Beginning to Blur…

Twilight Zone Season 2, episode 29, called “The Obsolete Man” (we watched it on Netflix; I can’t find it safely available anywhere else) is about a futuristic society that has outlawed books and religion, and librarian Romney Wordsworth stands on trial for his life. Have you ever seen this?

At its first airing, such a mindset was accurately recognized as dangerous, but in our time our world is hurtling toward this type of society and people are passively sitting in the cultural waters, denying that the water is on its way to boiling.

When the state limits “tolerance” to certain people groups and lifestyles and demonizes the rest, and tells “religion” what to think, say and believe, and when some aren’t free, none are free and even those in the “protected” groups will ultimately not be safe. The new meaning of “tolerance” is total acceptance, and disagreement is equated with hate, but only on behalf of the “tolerated” groups, and these same people eventually turn on each other in this new Inquisition.

If this offends, perhaps the point is striking too close to home.
