With everyone chanting the praises of the "better than abysmal" economy, we decided to post a time lapse video (since cartoons are all that stand an even remote chance of attracting some attention)prepared by John Lohman, of just how the New Normal has been progressing, both since the starts of the great depression in December 2007, and more importantly, since the beginning of the "end" of the recession. The result may surprise you. As John points out: food stamps - the only thing keeping 43 million Americans from going postal." Hopefully the end of extended unemployment benefits coming December 1 won't be that first one additional straw on the camel's back that leads to a full blown fracture.

Here is a time-lapse of unemployment in the U.S;



I do think the video would have been better with a scale to comprehend the level of increase but I'm sure we can all agree the more red, the more dire situation of the people. When large, centralized, and complex government and corporate systems break down, the true extent of dependency reveals itself.

To be honest, I've become more sympathetic towards the complacency of the people regarding economic knowledge because it simply is confusing for the average Joe. The amount of layers of nonsense to aid the confusion from the banking/corporate crooks is paramount to the undergoing, if I might say, genius robbery. There are only two ways out of the current ponzi scheme and one is through the enlightened public's actions toward a better future and the other is the removal of necessities to a mass number of people to the point where a revolt takes place. And I'm almost 100% sure it won't be the former.

That first video will become much more saturated with hues of red when 2 million more americans lose their unemployment benefits by the end of the year. Good videos

If they counted unemployment like they did back in the 40's its actually around 22%.
