1929 OCT "The "crash" began on October 24 (Black Thursday). By October 29, stock prices had plummeted and banks were calling in loans. An
estimated $30 billion in stock values "disappeared" by mid-November."
Same Months in the near future????
1929 NOV "Any lack of confidence in the economic future or the basic strength of business in the United States is foolish."--President Herbert
Was Herbert Hoover referring to McCain's fundamentals of the Economy?
1930 NOV "The street corners of New York City are crowded with apple-sellers. Nearly six thousand unemployed individuals worked at selling apples
for five cents a piece."
What will New Yorkers sell in today's world? Drugs or Apples?
1931 FEB " "Food riots" begin to break out in parts of the U.S." "In Los Angeles, California, Mexican Americans found themselves being
accused of stealing jobs from "real" Americans. During the month, 6,024 of them were deported."
Now we know the true immigration policy...
1931 MAR - "Three thousand unemployed workers march on the Ford Motor Company's plant ."
Oh Ford, when will you taste the fruits of stability.
1932 JAN- "The R.F.C. was allowed to lend $2 billion to banks, insurance companies, building and loan associations, "
Is this what the FED is doing?
1932 JUNE- "Determined to collect their "bonus" pay for service, between 15,000 to 25,000 World War I veterans gather and begin setting up
encampments near the White House and the Capitol in Washington, D.C."
Would Iraq (maybe Iran) Veterans do the same?
1933 MARCH- "On March 12, FDR delivers the first of what came to be known as his "fireside chats." In his initial "chat" he appealed to the
nation to join him in "banishing fear."
I believe Obama fits the "fireside" chat type.
"The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) is established. Designed as a relief and employment program for young men between the ages of 17 and 27,
the CCC was envisioned by FDR as a kind of volunteer "army" that would work in national forests, parks, and federal land for nine-month
Hmm, sounds like Obama's plan.
"TVA act was considered a huge experiment in social planning." "Opponents of the TVA called it "communistic to its core."
I heard these criticisms before.
1933 September - "In an effort to stabilize prices, the federal agricultural program orders the slaughter of more than 6 million pigs. "
You can put lipstick on a pig, but its still a pig. Slaughter it!
"Using the radio airwaves as his pulpit, Father Coughlin railed against "predatory capitalism." His criticism of the banking industry and
disdain of communism soon dovetailed into a troubling gospel of anti-Semitism."
Didn't we help instigate WWII?
1940 NOV "Franklin Roosevelt is elected to an unprecedented third term as president, defeating Wendell Willkie. FDR's victory is seen as proof of
the nation's support of his war policies."
Oh, so war policy is the name of McCains game.
1940 NOV "In little over a year, following Japan's December 1941 bombing of Pearl Harbor, the U.S. would enter the war in the Pacific and in
Europe. The war effort jump-started U.S. industry and effectively ended the Great Depression."
WOW. So thats how we get out of tough economic situations. Maybe thats why the US fights a war every decade. But now, we have one we can fight every
day, 'The War on Terror". Maybe WWIII is our way out of this next one.
