    paintballgod33 1 month ago People were also far more tough back then. Nowadays, people have temper tantrums if they don't have Wi-Fi.
  • Gerod253
    Gerod253 4 days ago This is very true. The other side of that, however, is how much of our lives seem to now require the internet to function. Just walk into a retail store when their network is down and you’ll watch the entire store virtually grind to a halt.

    Santosh Ragi 4 weeks ago (edited) @Jo Smith Well, your kids might surprise you. We never know what really one is made of until they really meet the situation. You could be surprised by how fast they cope up to the situation.
  • Jo Smith
    Jo Smith 1 month ago (edited) GazB85: Yes, and no. The OP is right. Most people nowadays can’t handle being without WiFi. I grew up watching the computer and Internet evolution take place so I can be fine without it. My kids on the other hand go crazy if they don’t have wifi and a screen to watch. They won’t read books or just “be bored.” My wife got them addicted to it all much to my frustrations.

  • Tommie duh Swamy
    Tommie duh Swamy 1 week ago During the recession of 2007-2011...people had stockpiled their savings into one bank and as a result many were losers due to the fact that the FDIC insures up to $100k and that's it! How profoundly stupid. Obama, after the damage was done, upped the amount to $250k. Wonderful...

    PW Thomas 2 weeks ago FEMA bought 30,000 Guillotines from France and plan on using them on Americans! FEMA also purchased giant plastic grave liners and also concrete ones which hold 5-7 bodies each. They have prepared for WW3 and are ready to go! Nice that they warned you right? Look at all of this stuff on YouTube! Walmart stores are being bought by FEMA and being turned into concentration Camps! With all of those head choppers and grave liners do you have any idea what they plan to all of the illegal aliens coming to America by the hundreds of thousands?? Going to be bloody!

I have tried to figure peole like you hate the jews so much & one I think it is that the Jews very well may be smarter than the average person. You can find videos here on Youtube stating that the average IQ is 115-120. Not the usual 100 for the population in general.

  • GetMeThere1
    GetMeThere1 1 month ago (edited) @SuLebo215 The stock market is nothing other than the buying and selling of shares of public companies. As such, it's not fundamentally the "cause" of anything. As for our "economy," it's doing fine. The only way to actually measure an economy is to count what is produced. The U.S. continues to be a MAJOR producing among all countries. On that basis (the only one which is a direct "measure") our economy is doing about the best of any world economy out there.
  • SuLebo215
    SuLebo215 1 month ago @Montana Maverick Prepper My money is in my chicken house :) Won't tell you were I live, lol
  • SuLebo215
    SuLebo215 1 month ago @GetMeThere1 I'm with Carmen on this. It's the greed for money in the stock market that caused all the problems in the first place. The existential lesson to learn from the depression is that you can't always get something for nothing - which gaming the stock market is. And anyone who thinks that our current "economy" is doing great just because GDP and the stock market are high, are fooling themselves. Increased GDP is due to automation and the stock market is a hedge fund manager's paradise but does little for the common man

  • GetMeThere1
    GetMeThere1 1 month ago @Chris Rock Wow! Great story. Thanks for sharing it.
  • Chris Rock
    Chris Rock 1 month ago @GetMeThere1 he did have stock from the steel mill he worked at. Got so much for hours worked. Well right after he retired it dropped to 2 bucks and my mom started bugging him to sell it. I was like 18 at time. I begged and pleaded with him not to sell low. He had like 700 shares. I said you need 1400 bucks that bad. Finally he listened and 3 years later it went up to 100 and then he sold. I told him to roll it into an annuity and my mother gets 400 extra a month to this day. Thank God he listened.
  • GetMeThere1
    GetMeThere1 1 month ago @Chris Rock Yeah. So...sad that, at least "back in the day" the average mom and pop thought the stock market was "beyond them." Now -- at least according to Warren Buffett -- just going with an index fund will make anyone more money that the most sophisticated hedge funds; and he in fact recently won a million dollar bet with a hedge fund manager over just that.
  • Chris Rock
    Chris Rock 1 month ago @GetMeThere1 I hear you there. My parents where 2 of the hardest working people you ever want to meet but they didn't make their money work for them. My dad was good with money and did ok but he should have died a multi millionaire. My mom is barely scraping by. They would give money away but if you brought up investing you got crickets. It urks me to this day.
  • Anita Ares
    Anita Ares 1 month ago "Slow bank run." Slowly take everything out of your account that you don't need for bills and business. Where you put it is your business. "If you don't hold it, You don't own it!".

  • M1903A1
    M1903A1 1 month ago @GetMeThere1 A key concept of life and investing is "quit while you're ahead". Some did that before the crash in 1929, realized things weren't making sense and decided to quit the herd...many more did not, they just had to reach for N+1 instead of settling for N...and they lost most if not everything and then some. Trouble is, crowd psychology is enticing, and you never know when "N+1" is a step too far.

People picked that money up before turning that baby over. Let that poor newborn drown and the grandpa died in the tree. True story. Morgan county Tennessee 2001.

  • Blz Ahz
    Blz Ahz 2 months ago To have money is to have purchasing power. To have power is to be independent. You don't surrender your independence to others. Indepedence is the ability to do stuff on your own, to have power over your own life. No one looks after your best interest better than you yourself (with the exception of your parents in some cases), and that's why you don't outsource your personal freedom.

Next. Dont do stocks. Then. Invest in things work while and do not invest in things that are damaging to America.

  • GetMeThere1
    GetMeThere1 2 months ago @Carmen Ortiz Thanks Carmen. I'm afraid you're a bit too stupid to even bother replying to, however. Have a nice day though!
  • Carmen Ortiz
    Carmen Ortiz 2 months ago @GetMeThere1 You are delusional. During the Great Depression previous rich people were committing suicide after losing it all and the banks would close with people's money one day and never open again, which meant people lost all their savings. Robin is right. I have saving in the bank for things like my property taxes, which I pay in February or March so it's not in the bank for long and the rest is in my house in a fireproof safe in a secret place, until things improve. FDIC can't cover more than a small fraction of money in banks, it is an illusion.

  • GetMeThere1
    GetMeThere1 2 months ago grandparents and parents trusted banks because of FDIC. Unfortunately, part of my family lore became "don't trust the stock market." As a result, they could have turned hundreds of thousands into tens of millions -- but missed out.

  • MtnDewey
    MtnDewey 3 weeks ago actually the Amish are not as self sufficient as we are to believe, they make a lot of their merchandise with power tools, they just don't own any....its a little secret they have going on believe me.

  • Quinn Tech
    Quinn Tech 1 month ago Sure, everything's great when you don't have to pay any taxes, plus they'll be hurting when the "English" run out of money. Even they depend on a prosperous and industrious society in which to live. So don't kid yourself.

  • The Don
    The Don 1 month ago (edited) @J P It's true. They won't. But the Amish are very well off and their hired hands sure will take up arms. The same ones that chauffeur them around to Walmarts etc.... Easy Pickins? Believe me, you'd be dead in a heartbeat if you were to step on their land uninvited. Well almost. First you'd have to endure a sermon on how you were about to enter Hell with fire and brimstone by defying God's chosen peoples. Fact is, the Amish here own probably every each of a vast County and all the businesses in it including the Police and Judges. They are far from weak.
  • J P
    J P 1 month ago Bryan Simon Amish wont bear arms against others? Well then that means easy taking of what they have.
  • The Don
    The Don 1 month ago (edited) @vicky janway I live right near an Amish community. Believe me, they still ride in horse drawn buggies and carriages. Many ride Bikes. You're talking about the Mennonites. A modernized Amish clan. Fact is, Just yesterday one of them was hit by a truck out on the highway. Not unusual to hear horses hooves tramping down the street. But the Amish do use modern methods more. They're also good at hiding it. But the Amish would also be hit hard by any depression too. In our community, they take in part of their income from tourism and selling handmade furniture. They also use Natural gas to heat their homes and Karosene for lighting. So while they may be self sufficient it's only to a degree.

    Gwebo Celestron 2 months ago @Rudy P Yep. Same in Oswego Cty. You see them shopping at Aldi's, Tractor Supply, White's Lumber just like the rest of us. I've gone to one of their mills and it uses electricty. They make a killing up here selling rough hewn lumber and building sheds. They even have a metal roofing fabrication shop in the area. And yes, they have plumbing. Have seen them at Ace Hardware buying PVC pipe. Where people get their ideas about the Amish, I have no idea. Urban legend, I guess.
  • Gwebo Celestron
    Gwebo Celestron 2 months ago I live in Amish country. It's nothing but a parade of horse and buggies passing my house as they go to and from church on Sundays. Hate to bust the myth, but the Amish shop at the grocery and hardware stores just like the rest of us. They even come into the local convenience store for subs, pizza and wings. They use electricity to run their mills.

  • Damnit Bobby
    Damnit Bobby 2 months ago False. Amish people buy all their supplies from people who aren't Amish and Walmart LITERALLY has horse and buggy parking spots for local Amish. Amish also sell items to regular people to make money so they can buy supplies. Just because Amish don't have electricity or plumbing doesn't mean they're entirely off grid, they're not.

  • Bryan Simon
    Bryan Simon 2 months ago Amish will not bear arms against others, but they do use firearms for hunting and other purposes. The Amish belief in nonresistance mean Amish will not serve in the military, law enforcement, or in any other position that requires them to use firearms against other people.

"Old" dogs can learn new tricks.

    KillBud Sanchez 1 week ago @Jeff K I googled it but that's google who knows , as for current 320 million was the population for over 20 years but if you do the immigration research I.e. for the past 5 years we got about 500,000 immigrants a year before that was 250,000 to 300,00 on average multiplied by 20 plus immigration from other country's like Africa and the middle east it's been another 100,000 plus each year . This is all debatable because our government can't take a credible census thanks to liberal democrats and judges. 327 million with our national GDP and debt is still bad but more doable for the government.

    Coyote Demon 3 weeks ago @Beverly Harward I needed one when i was a child and an victim to being molested and raped repeatedly and what did the lawyers do?.. "oh it's too stressful on the children" and didn't bother to present the case just because the pedophile had more money than my family. because of that the person was allowed to walk the streets to rape MORE little children and that's my grudge against lawyers. majority of them don't care about the victims, they only care about the money and their reputation.

    Rick Sanchez 3 weeks ago (edited) Lets start by killing the liberal n the snowflakes of the nation that day. They are worthless and meaningless creatures with no future. Sounds cruel but listen, having money they buy beer, drugs and expensive phones, sneakers and trans surgeries, demanding communism and socialism for they dont need to work, that makes them the perfect scum, expendable crap that nobody needs to be caring, holding or be worried in times of need.
