Who was screaming depression in 2008?
No one, that's who.
Wana know why?

bing/images/ 1930 railroad adds

Cause in the 1930's the railroad companies had just finished a million dollar advertising campaign to support the new industrial economy. "Want a job? Tired of looking at the back end of a mule? Come to the city."
But, unfortunately everyone arrived in the cities, and the depression started.

This is why there are pictures of huge bread lines.

The difference this day
is that everyone is settled.
People can go to their family
or their friends, they are not as
stranded in a strange new city alone.

The depression is worse this round, it's just less visible.

I'm pretty sure a ton of people were screaming "depression" in the end of 2008. I remember just about every news station constantly saying stuff like "the worst thing since the Great Depression"

I had been screaming a Depression was coming since 2005..honestly...

1. everytime a nation has had a MASSIVE FLOOD of IMMIGRANTS, a depression soon followed.
2. because of (1.), the entire infrastructure needs to be expanded. AND FOR THAT, cheap labor is a MUST, in the eyes of the elite masters.
3. our roads, bridges, schools, power plants, etc were already delapidated before the MASSIVE FLOOD OF IMMIGRANTS in the 90's..
4. Home prices were skyrocketing in the 2001-2006 years BUT PAY WAS GOING DOWN..

5. the SHEEPLE (baby boomers) were soooooo gullible, ignorant (YET THOUGHT THEY WERE SMART,typical of an idiot) they deserved it, since they made MASSIVE amounts of money from the 50'-90's AND SPENT LIKE DRUNKEN SAILORS..

all because they BELIEVED ALL THE public fool system's LIES, MIND CONTROL INDOCTRINATION, actuall had the PRIDE of feeling entitled, NEVER UNDERSTANDING IT WAS THE PEOPLES of the 20's-30's HUGE protests, VIOLENT STRIKES, and Blood and Sweat which gave them the opportunity. TO BE SELFISH, SELF ABSORBED, GULLIBLE, EGOTISTICAL, VAIN as to actually feel it was their own "hard work" that gave them a quality of life increase unseen in modern history.
