This is the key to what is the problem with our government right now. It is all a smokescreen to hide the fact that we are in major trouble. We need to start looking at working together and preparing for a depression. I suggest learning how to start a garden or increase your existing garden. Now if you don't have space for a garden, try to connect up with someone you know or can get to know and ask them if you can help them start or increase there garden. It would be best if they even had land that is an acre or more. You could mention your concern about the economy but I wouldn't get into too much detail because you don't want to scare them. If they want to get into it more, then you could SLOWLY ease them in. You don't want to come off like a crazy. That might mean byebye garden. Remember, you want to have really good relations with this person or people. This will be your "bread and butter" or literally your "fruit and vegetables". I will be going into more things but this is key. Comment if you have any other suggestions,or tips of gardening, or things to plant.

Watch this video. It is one of many videos out there that try to explain the danger we are in as a country. We are going to have a high degree of inflation to cover all of the borrowing we have done this last year in the stimulus package and over the last 25 years. It was only a matter of time before all this borrowing was going to catch up with us. The sad part about it is we have done this to ourselves. We didn't want to here that we needed to stop spending and bring down the deficit. We kept thinking we can borrow more and more money to allow us to live our expensive lifestyles. We did it in the 1980s after inflation was 12%. Ross Perot brought the debt into the limelight and caused us to look at our spending. We then, at least, had balanced budgets without deficit spending for awhile in the late 1990s. However, when 9/11 hit, we started to have deficit spending again to cover costs of a slowing economy after the 2000 scare and the beginning of the "fight against terror". So if you want to face the truth or not, that is up to you but the facts will not go away.
