Title should read: Hitting Bottom Matt Archbold lays it out
Or a better title: “A Country Divided.”
He is bound to be a prepper. Everyone should be.
Great article.....this is how I see it too.
This election was always about who would be in charge of picking up the pieces, not how to avoid hitting the bottom. We went over the cliff when Barry was elected. I’m amazed that we didn’t hit the bottom sooner but who knows, it may even be another year or two.
The American electorate has finally turned out the last lights in Ronald Reagan’s shining city on the hill. We have abandoned that city to creep down the hill to join the unwashed in the mud. And as the article says, the “education” establishment, the mass media and blatant vote fraud will ensure that the city stays dark. Maybe Joe Farah is right - God has abandoned us and the end is near.
wrong. just because something hits bottom, does not mean it gets better.
a druggie hits up too much, looses everything. what usually happens is death by OD. doesn’t get better, gets dead.
surely, detroit has hit bottom or getting close. anyone see any signs of live there?
Greece? anything getting better in Greece?
most of the time, hitting bottom just means the end, and nothing gets better.
Yeah, it’s a great article ...
Except when the wanters arrive on your door step and ask “... Can we dance whiff yo bank accounts?”
Then the happy bubble surrounding you gets breached...
Long may it last until that point........
This fellow is an optimist.
Magical thinking solves nothing. Most druggies hit the wall, and keep going. Many destroy the lives of their children and family in the process.
The myth that after you hit the rock bottom, you can get better ignores the reality that most who hit rock bottom splatter.
1) Millions turn out for a chicken sandwich, but can't figure out a way to peacefully and legally stop abortion. Really? ( eye roll)
2) 85% of our nation's children attend GODLESS government schools. What will they learn there? Answer: They **will** learn to think and reason godlessly. They must just to cooperate in the godless classroom. And...They risk learning that any government powerful enough to give them tuition-free schooling is powerful enough to give them **lots** of free stuff! After 100 or more years of this is it any wonder that half the nation looks to government as its redeemer and savior?
If Christians ( Catholic and Protestant) removed their children from the godless indoctrination camps these schools in many counties would have to close tomorrow.
Of the two above, the second is worse. At least an aborted baby flies directly into the arms of Jesus. Children in government schools risk losing their eternal souls.
Personally, my prayer for months as been that God will give this nation what it needs ( pleasant or painful) to bring it to repentance.
People do not want anything cut. They want all the bailouts to come. They want the Fed to keep printing money. They do not believe we of gone off the cliff or are close to going off the cliff. They think we can patch it over, that we can somehow come up with a magic solution. You cannot have a budgetary solution if you do not change what the role of government should be. As long as you think we have to please the world and run this welfare state, all we will argue about is who will get the loot. "
(Don't accuse me of being a Paul Bot please)
Why do people think that after we hit bottom things will come smelling like roses and looking up. The only thing we'll get after a world-wide economic collapse is a new world-wide currency and a world-wide government. America won't get rebuilt into something better. How did that Arab Spring democracy thing in Egypt work out for ya??

13 All these people died still believing what God had promised them. They did not receive what was promised, but they saw it all from a distance and welcomed it. They agreed that they were foreigners and nomads here on earth. 14 Obviously people who say such things are looking forward to a country they can call their own. 15 If they had longed for the country they came from, they could have gone back. 16 But they were looking for a better place, a heavenly homeland. That is why God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.
I'll do what I can for my family and those around me. But I spent 25 years in the military, much of it overseas, and returned home to find it looted and burned. Short of a massive revival and a turning to God, there is no future for America. The teat-suckers have taken over. The best I can do is to try to protect my little piece of the remainder against further deprivation.
Curse the New York Times for eternity... and the suck-up newspapers that copy them...
If the central Federal government is incapable of holding “clean” elections...then the only ones that matter are the statehouses at this point.
