Across the country, authorities are becoming concerned that the nation's financial woes could turn increasingly violent, and they are urging people to get help. In some places, mental-health hot lines are jammed, counseling services are in high demand and domestic-violence shelters are full. "I've had a number of people say that this is the thing most reminiscent of 9/11 that's happened here since then," said the Rev. Canon Ann Malonee

Arnt they supposed to be marveling at the high of the DOW at the moment?

What I find really weird and of concern is, they said there wasn't a crisis then a week later they said there is, now it's all good to go. It doesn't just change in a week, this has been building up. A couple days ago the DOW would be +300 then -300 within a minute or two.. They injected cash, that's why the DOW is up now.

They arn't being honest with us and I think things are much worse than they are letting on.

Yeah the DOW was down last I looked, i'm no expert but the american economy has sadly been a sinking ship for a year or two now. Around the 7th of october they finally said it's a crisis then a few days later it went up 900 points in a day, double the most previous rise for a day. So from the worst drop or something around 7 october to the highest day rise by double a few days later. That's just unreal, I feel the money they injected has kept the ship floating (aswell as bail out some friends) but that added weight ensured a faster more dramatic sinking sooner than it should.

Also the average for the DOW is lets say 9500 points, 7 october for example it was at 7500 points, a few days later that 900 point rise in a day still put it at around 8400 points which is still below average/usual and today I think it may have been down -200 points or something. - once again i'm no expert but it's quite clear and I hope for the best and apologize if i'm spreading fear.

That article was soooo sad it brought tears to my eyes. I can't believe how many people are killing themselves and/or their family. One lady shot her cats. I myself had a little crying jag this weekend over money issues. It is a really scary time and what's sad is we are in a society where we don't really know our neighbors and we can't help each other. i know I'm in a situation where most of my family is far away and the rising costs of plane fare make it almost impossible for me to see my family, the people who support and love me the most. I am so sad for America right now. I really hope we can all hang on and survive this and whatever might be coming in the fture before things settle down again. I'm tired of 'living history', I'd like to be living in a time that is not going to be remembered in the history books.

Thanks for the article though, it highlights a problem that is most likely going to get worse before it gets better.

Well I hope things will get better, no matter what happens things arn't always as they seem. There is always time for smiles during serious times. What can't be taken away is will, I believe it's very strong and I believe there is forces/people out there trying to run people down mentally because they know that's the only way they can succeed. So if things get tough I hope we remain strong and fight it aswell as the culprits, maybe this will bring about a better future if it happens and the people snap and say no more.

I found that page.

Bush planning martial law

FEMA sources have told Madsen today that the Bush administration is putting final touches on a plan that would initiate martial law in the event of continuing economic collapse causing massive social unrest, bank closures resulting in violence against financial institutions and another fraudulent presidential election that would result in rioting in major cities and campuses around the country

Will they carry off all the people waiting in line for their money.
If people wait weeks to see a movie or the first iPod, the army can camp out with them.
