EXCERPTED:I Wonder What the Poor Folks Are Having Tonight? Episode #8

I grew up in a household where we had measured discussions about serious things. I assumed everyone did, but when I eventually began school and advanced in the grades, I discovered that not every family was like ours. Many of the kids I grew up with never talked about such things at all. I was astonished by this. Some didn’t even know if they were Republicans or Democrats or something else. It was yet another way I found to appreciate our happy and interesting home life. I still seek that kind of conversation, but it has been hard to find. It’s even harder to find today.

One of the most important lessons I heard from hearing the folks talk about their growing up years was about whether it could happen again. Obviously a war could happen because talk of nuclear war was common. But what about the Depression? Could that happen again? They assured us that it could. It was awful and it could happen again. That opened up a whole new world of concern for me. If it could happen again, what were we doing to prepare for it? How could we be in a better position than my mom’s folks had been when it hit them? What had caused it? Could the same things cause another one?

The folks had some answers for what had caused the Depression, but I wasn’t convinced. Our school books said it was caused by overproduction and people buying too many stocks on margin, but that didn’t satisfy me, either. I began a quest to really understand what had caused it. That quest took me to college and to grad school looking for answers. The Depression shaped my life because the folks had cared enough to talk about serious things at home.

Over the years as I studied economic history I grew more and more concerned about a return of difficult economic times. There was the oil embargo and the inflation of the 1970s. We had a period of price controls in the early 1970s. There were stock market ups and downs, the Cold War, and a terrible war in Southeast Asia. I became more and more alarmed about when we might see a return of those economic difficulties of the 1930s.

In short, I adopted much of my parents’ ways of thinking, and from those ideas I began to look back to simpler, more practical ways of living. These columns are a result of their willingness to talk about the world they knew growing up. When you have Depression parents, you hear them speaking nearly every day, even long after they have passed into the next life. We were so lucky they shared their experiences and wisdom with us, and we have all been the richer for it.

Do people like it better if the entirety of the text is in the post, or is that an infringement of copyright material? I would rather click and paste things in their entirety, people are shy of visiting web sites they aren't used to going to.

Peace brahs, may we live longer in this period between the mindless kill chutes our "betters" are so happy to send us "cattle" into. I'm too old for this shit, but my grandchildren are prime time for killing. Some crazy bitches and cucks in Congress think drafting is so good, they may as well put females up for it too. I have 17 grandchildren, and 14 of those are girls. I don't think Canada will be a safe dodge THIS time.

THIS IS A TAG LINE...Exercising rights is only radical to two people, Tyrants and Slaves. Which are YOU? Our ignorance has driven us into slavery and we do not recognize it.

"I have 17 grandchildren..."

Good on you, my friend...I have two 20- something kids, but no grandkids yet. Reckon I oughtta tell them I ain't getting younger...lol. But I agree that there is no justification for sending American soldiers to fight and die in Ukraine...MUD

BTW...17? My parents have 10, which is a pretty good haul, imho. But my Uncle Kenny and Aunt Marie in Topeka, Kansas had 5 kids who all seem to procreate early and often and I am pretty sure U. Kenny lost count of how many grandkids and great-grandkids he actually has...I know I have...lol. Kansans can breed.

The perils of having 6 daughters, and marriage to another who has 3 children, 2 boys and 1 daughter. So I am basically a father to 9. MORE CROPS TO COME??? There is one boy still in the target zone, as he has not married or had any children. He is just a boy of 27, but time is ticking. How do I put out larger font? My comments are PICO

I read the first few lines of the article here on the forum, then go straight to the website.

Helps me get a context for what I'm reading I suppose.

Mostly, I check out the author if I have time, but I especially check the website logo, ect. to see what subliminal message the doofus free masons are trying to send.

And no drafting of my young in's. My kinfolk will do their fighting on the front door step...

Send the vaxxed masktards to Ukraine. They're dead anyway.

Fonts are beyond my limited HTML expertise, but your comments are the same size font as everyone else's...you got yer spectacles on?

BTW...I waited until I was 30 to get hitched, and my 27-year-young daughter was born 17 months later. Now my son is almost 24 and complains about dating and meeting young ladies in the Era of Covid Overreaction/Panic...I am patient, but I would treasure grandchildren to spoil and intellectually-influence...MUD

Uncle Kenny's eldest daughter was born three weeks after me...she got married just a coupla years outta high school and her first child came along a year later...this daughter got married young, too, and her first child was born in the same month as my cousin's 2nd-to- last child and have grown up as best friends, practically sisters. That is Kansas, imho...middle America, salt of the Earth, and the family reunions are a hoot...MUD

Re: Drafting females...

Nothing the RATZ do between now and November 2024 will surprise me, not even Dems stirring up a war effort worthy of instituting a draft. And RAT-science tells us Males and Females are interchangeable, so of course Dem WOKE RATZ will draft chicks.

DemRATZ are gonna try and stir up an insurrection so they can declare martial law and use the Power of the DeeCee Swamp to crush all opposition....or not, but be on the lookout...MUD
