I always wondered what it was like for my grandparents living through The Great Depression. After 3 years of Obama, I think that I have some idea.
No you don't but you likely will.
Your children go on the hobo yet, probably not. My father was 12 when he hit the hobo trail.
When I was born in 1938 my father was working, cutting cross ties for the railroad, in river bottom where work began on site at sunup and ended at sundown, six mile walk both ways, the pay was 50 cents a day.
I hope and pray that we will not see those days again, but if we continue to deny our roots, then I guess the ending that was written 6000 years or so ago will turn out to be true after all.

Insane deficit spending is shielding us from what people in the 1930’s experienced.
It is also setting the stage for INEVITABLE conditions which will be MUCH worse.
My Mom And Dad lived through it as children. They are constantly telling me how it still ain't as Bad as then but it sure feels like it could get that way fast. Its because of the way our town is losing businesses and of the Unemployment.
Until you have turned in a pie tin for the .05 cent recycling $$ in order to catch the subway to and from work search day you have no idea what the great depression was like......not my exp. story told to me by my grandfather.....
