In June 1933, President Franklin D. Roosevelt appointed a mild-mannered, bookish historian from the University of Chicago, William Dodd, as his new ambassador to Germany. Dodd wasn't Roosevelt's first choice, nor was he an obvious one: A lifelong academic who was writing a multivolume history of the antebellum South, Dodd was chosen simply because he had a doctorate from the University of Leipzig — where he wrote his dissertation on Thomas Jefferson — and spoke fluent German.
Not that Dodd was a militant moralist. He came to the job willing to give Hitler the benefit of the doubt. But precisely because he had been away from Germany so long, the depths to which the country had already fallen — dissenters banished to prison camps, Jews and foreigners being attacked in broad daylight — quickly soured him on his hosts. "I had at least hoped to find some decent people around Hitler," he told a German society columnist. "I am horrified to discover that the whole gang is nothing but a horde of criminals and cowards."

Beans and rice? Why not cash out and stock the freezer with beef and bacon? It's coming down some more, lies do not work forever. They will be saying it is a normal major correction by the end of the week.
I'm just spreading doom and gloom, I don't know what is going to happen. I only know that nothing was actually fixed after the 2008 crash.

With our current system, those resources are hoarded by the wealthiest/most powerful and then those same people come out using media in all forms (both consciously/subliminally) to tell us there isn't enough to go around.
