The big Zero has just been give another four years to bleed us of our rights and freedoms and times will no doubt get a lot tougher. Right after he took the throne four years ago he was awarded the 'Nobel Peace Prize' for.......Ah well....... no joke, nobody really knows why but he got it but I think the NRA should award him 'Gun Salesman of the Decade' very soon.
One thing which is happening is all our taxes will go up, either income taxes or taxes via increased prices due to more burden being placed on business like health care and federal regulations and the sad part is I actually think when it's all said and done even fewer people will have health care. In times like this people need to stick together much like they did in years gone by. Government programs do not fix anything it only throws money at a problem and creates a bigger pig.
During the Great Depression folks grew gardens to feed themselves and it gave them item's to barter with as well, this could be done again today as well as trading services in lieu of paying cash. When friends and family were in need others would chip in and help to ease the pain.
This is true today, it might mean trading child-care for house work or arranging a work party to fix someones roof for example. If someone is sick an unable to work food baskets or prepared meals might be a boost to someone, if might mean donating blood to help them or volunteering to sit with a convalescing friend so their spouse could go to work.
As things get tougher we will need to stick together and if you really need help are you going to trust the government or your friends and family to look out for your best interest ?
Just a thought.
