Skip to comments.10 Signs That The American People Are Starting To Freak Out About The Condition Of The Economy
Posted on 07/16/2011 3:58:48 PM PDT by Kartographer
All over America, restlessness and frustration are growing. It has now been almost three years since the great financial crash of 2008, and yet the U.S. economy is still a complete and total mess. In fact, there are all sorts of signs that things are about to get even worse, and the American people are just about fed up. Virtually every major poll, survey and measure of consumer confidence shows that the American people are becoming more pessimistic about the economy. Millions of hard working Americans that worked their fingers to the bone for their employers and that did everything right are sitting at home on their couches tonight staring blankly at the television. Many of them still have a hard time believing that they were laid off and that there is nobody out there that wants to give them a good job. There are millions of other Americans that wont get much sleep tonight because they will spend much of the night rolling around in bed wondering how they are possibly going to be able to pay the mortgage. We have never faced such an extended economic downturn in modern U.S. history, and a lot of people are starting to freak out about the condition of the economy.

Ain’t hope and change grand? You should be thanking Zero.
I think that we are at the very least in for a collapse much like that of Argentinas ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7yerKMQc7-w&feature=grec_index), but as a armed society with a very large entitlement minded population our collapse will be much more violent and I see many many small business wiped out by flash mob looting, and large scale violence (look at what happened just this past Memorial Day and 4th of July weekends)we are seeing these mobs grow bolder and bolder like:
Chicagos CBS 2s Jim Williams reports, the problem of mob attacks downtown is much bigger than the weekend beatings, according to beat cops who wanted to remain anonymous.
And its not just Chicago, but Washington DC, Las Vegas, St Paul, Philadelphia and on most major big Blue cities are increasingly reporting such flash mobs and gang muggings. Look what happened just this past weekend in Peoria, Il:
Teenage Flash Mob Robberies on the Rise:
Rash of violence isnt flash mobs, its wilding
Teens in a mob assault and rob Center City patrons
Milwaukee Police Go Barney Fife On Mob Attacks
Milwaukee Mob Victim Recalls Beating ... Oh, White Girl Bleeds a Lot
I see what I call Pocket Pogroms taking place in many big Blue cities and if you arent a ‘0bamamite yute’ or one of ‘Holder’s People’ its going to get Reginald Denny bad for you very quickly.
For those who are just starting or are old hands at prepping you may find my Preparedness Manual helpfull. You can download it at:
For those of you who havent started already its time to prepare almost past time maybe. You needed to be stocking up on food guns, ammo, basic household supplies like soap, papergoods, cleaning supplies, good sturdy clothes including extra socks, underwear and extra shoes and boots, a extra couple changes of oil and filters for your car, tools, things you buy everyday start buying two and put one up.
As the LDS say When the emergency is upon us the time for preparedness has past.
Or as the bible says: A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it.
NIV Proverbs 22:3
There is no greater disaster than to underestimate danger.
Underestimation can be fatal.

What do you mean, ‘just about? The smart people have been fed up since 2008.
Now the market is flooded. Pieces that would have been snatched up for major bucks are ignored. Items so rare that they were never seen on the open market are now selling for fractions of what they are listed for.
People are not selling duplicate pieces or stuff from the attic any longer, they are selling their prized items to keep afloat. What will happen when they run out of things to sell?
“What will happen when they run out of things to sell?”
They will come for yours.
“As Gerald Celente likes to say: When people lose everything and have nothing left to lose they lose it.
I guess the stupid 45 percent that still approve of Obozo
never had anything to lose.
Do blacks and Commies make up that much of the population?
That's what I heard. Ain't true, but I've heard it.this, something's wrong with your ears.
Or you can get raw with these strings. Either way, the violin is sweet yet lethal.
Yet another big closure of business here in PA - and after 98 years!!! OBAMA is doing a “helluva” job!!
It's Gulag time.
The inept, shuffling ,racist African ,the loons elected is enough to turn anyones stomach!
Someday this country will begin taking illegal immigration & the drive for cheap labor more seriously. The foreign labor force is destroying traditional salary/benefits structures in jobs that used to cover the cost of living.
Now, has anyone else noticed a sudden spike in gas prices this past week? Maybe it's just a CT tax increase, but in the past week gas has gone up about $0.10 /gal. The reason I'm not sure if it's a local or national increase is because the silence has been deafening from the media, Fox included. Now, if it's only CT than maybe things aren't too bad (except here in CT of course). If it's another nation wide run up, then just as night follows day, we're in for another dip in the economy in about a year....just in time for the elections. Should make for an interesting election.
Let’s be fair. This isn’t Obamas fault, it’s the fault of the federal government and the morons that elected them. BOTH parties are to blame, not just one.
The GOP is every bit as corrupt and clueless as the dems.
Yep, when they have to report to their Aztlan masters.
It’s nation-wide; here in Florida, gasoline prices have gone up about 20 cents per gallon in the last week and a half.
And all their troubles will be over.
That's why this is rightly called not a recession or a depression, but the Great Oppression.
Everyone is freaking out but the unemployed racist blacks that just lost their house, because all that matters to them is the color of the presidents skin.
“Lets be fair. This isnt Obamas fault,”
Yes, by all means, let’s be fair:
TARP — Obama
Obamacare — Obama
20% unemployment in CA — Obama
Crippled oil drilling — Obama
Surrender of Afghanistan — Obama
My fingers are tired...
Yes, gas is going back up. You can check prices at
I’ve seen the same thing. One of the stations I drive by daily had $3.65 for the longest time. One morning I drive by and it is $3.78. I might have forgotten to look one day, but it is still a fast increase.
And once Americans REALLY begin to freak out,Obama will get to declare martial law, and postphone the 2012 elections. Obama is certainly doing ALL he can to ruin the economy, polarize our society and convert the USA to poverty as a basis for futire socialism.Tghis loast weeks defined bad boys of polarized hatred were corportate ececutives and theor corporate jets who refuse to eat their peas.Our nation deserves much better that a version of Mugabe as the president of the United States.
Manwhile the GOP opposition is trying to snatch defeat from the jaws of Victory. True, genuine leaders of our nation are decried and villified in the press that seems to also suffer from more than just a dereliction of traditional duty, they are screaming propagandists for our version of Mugabe in the White House.Their histrionics add to the polarization of America.
This is no time for Americans to freak out, it is time for Americans to get deadly cool and calculating in order to throw out the liberal fascist regime which now threatens our way of life.
Prices are going up on everything. They want riots, they’ll get them. They want more illegals, they’ll get them. They want higher taxes, they’ll get them. It is said that the WH wants at least half of everything you make. He needs more money to pay his cronies.
Yup, and have you also noticed the distinct lack of coverage. I'd figure at least Hannity would be mentioning it.
# 7 (at the linked article) is interesting. People are becoming desperate to sell anything for money. Every story about copper thieves is another sign.
I may need one, if the SHTF. I'm a melanin enriched conservative who can easily be mistaken for one of "Holder's people".
Tell me about it. Competition from illegal labor has virtually destroyed the business that my wife and I sweated ten years to build. What used to provide us with a comfortable, above average income, now barely keeps us afloat.
No, but that is not the relevant number. I heard the other day that 70,000,000 Americans are getting a check from the Federal Government. About 100,000,000 Americans vote in our national elections. Those my friend are the relevant numbers.
Speaking of gasoline, we just got back from dropping our son off at camp in Nebraska. The gas stations we filled up at all sold super unleaded for a cheaper price than regular unleaded. That’s not the case here in Denver/Colorado. Anyone know the reason?
Ever since Ben Bernanke mentioned QE 3, gas prices have been rising in central Indiana....about 30 cents per gallon.
People who voted for a community organizer for president have no one to blame but themselves. For the others, if have empathy for...
Otherwise buddy I'm afraid you are out of luck ~ they won't know where you stand.
Au contraire. All is going as planned.
And the 'quiet riots' are becoming noisy - just what they plan on? Why would he worry about the election? There ARE no elections during Martial Law.
I wonder if it isn't dangerous to wait for an election that may not happen. Someone needs to drop to dime and get the truth of ineligibility out there - while there's still time.
Can’t remember about Nebraska, but it is like that in Iowa because the “super” is higher octane 10% ethanol blend; the regular contains no ethanol. Probably the same deal.
My main concern is, what’s going to happen in the future? We’re above water now, but I’m afraid Obamanomics will make the future bleak. Inflation, higher taxes, no economic recovery.
Oh come now, I know the Progressives, Libtards, and Dems are not freaking out...puuuuullleeeeezeeee. /s =.=
The difference the 89 is cheaper than 87 in Iowa is that it has lower state gas tax. Support the farmers and all by selling more ethanol blend, with lower taxes.
“Obama will get to declare martial law”
Declaring martial law amounts to declaring war on the citizens. So many citizens in this country have guns and ammo...
“There ARE no elections during Martial Law.”
I agree with you. I’m no fan of the chosen one at all.
However, just what good has the GOP been in the past 10+ years?
ping for later.
“I heard the other day that 70,000,000 Americans are getting a check from the Federal Government.”
I assume you are including social security, which is not a handout.
I agree, however, there are plenty of bums that are on the dole, and having been out of the US since 2004, I have failed to see how low the society has sunken.
I just now installed satellite US TV, with FOX news, and I really see the change from when I left.
It now looks like something out of a horror film.
On another note, if you really want to see the real dregs of society in America, check out the “Topix” US forums.
It is a real cross section of the red diaper doper babies.
It seems to be mostly kids, seeing who can out-insult each
Some of these jackasses deserve everything they’ve got. It’s just a shame that the rest of us have to get it too.
True. But you know, when have civilian weapons worked against military ordnanace,it would at best be a prolonged guerilla war.The military would have to rebel against our usurped government.Certainly some red states would immobalize the fedeeral government and the military.Its not a pretty picture, with an unsecured southern border with armed war lord invaders waiting.
Obama has already declared war against the citizenry, a fact that people are gradually understanding as things continue to ripen.Therefore our future is fraught with uncertainty.We need patriotic leaders, true Americans, and its time to roust them and form the lines.
