My dream - my fantasy - is having ANY kind of retirement. 
 
Nice fantasy, but that's all it is.
With no financial safety net I'll be
working until I can no longer physically work.
No golden years ahead for this hombre.

Jeff,
Don't give up hope or the dream.  One never knows what the future has in store for us beyond what we already can see.
 
You got to think positive!
Wishing you many blessings,
S.S.

when Ya can't help remembering that vibe, once again...
from August 15 to August 18, 1969...
and here it is August 2011, and this world is all srewed up... again...
and it's like we so need this vibe of peace and love and hope and dreams, all over again.
Especially right now.

We moved all of the farm related posts that were here... to the new Soulful Planet Farms thread, as requested.

Please check your posts here and there, and if you have any changes you would like me to make, please let us know.

Thanks,

So...

A Family of 4 is living below the poverty line if earning less than
$22,350.00 per year...
This ongoing mess of high unemployment and home forclosures has now virtually wiped out ALL of the previous gains of the late 90's in reducing poverty.

Lovely.    Think about that. What changed after the late 90's? Did we learn anything from this?

I hope we did, Geno.  It was policies put in action before the late 90's that caused the fix we're in now.  De-regulation of the banks and all the fly by nite mortgage companies that sprang up allowing people to buy houses they couldn't afford led to the housing crisis.
 
As Toad always points out NAFTA & GAFT played a huge role in the high unemployment rates. 
 
The bottom line is, everyone is hurting and the "American dream" is all but gone...

        We also must not forget the "cool little inventions"
 that Dimond came up with at J.P. Morgan/Chase bank.
 "collateralized debt obligations" and "Credit default swaps" that made it impossible..underline that impossible to write down the bad mortages set in place by the wide open FED window and the crooked bankers.
   Remembering also that Paulson promised the TARP
 bailout was for the banks to write down the bad
 mortages, but instead they just sat on all that money,
 or invested it in other fly-by-night schemes.... All
 with the blessing of our Treasury Department.
       If all these folks..claiming to be blind to what was
 happening, were lined up in a row, the amount of white
 canes needed for them would look like grave markers
 at Arlington Cemetary. There are now MILLIONS more
 mortage foreclosures breaking out every day,with no end in sight. Some very rich & powerfull people should
 be in prison right now, but they are not.... yet.

While we're waiting for our brilliant government
to actually DO something POSITIVE for ALL of us...
when they get back to Washington.
(of course... right after their long, paid, summer vacations conclude),
I wanted to post the (2) following Videos, that I wish they would all watch DURING their long, paid, summer vacations.

There is much value gained in crafting present solutions,
that can easily be learned from simply studying
both
the terrible mistakes allowed
and
the successful solution ideas of the past.


1.

American Experience The Crash of 1929

(Click to watch from PBS)




2.


American Experience The Civilian Conservation Corps

(Click to watch from PBS)






Congress, Senators, Washington, 'Representatives'...
Please enjoy your vacations, and have a very nice day!

~From the rest of US,
who honestly can't afford
even thinking about vacations,
any more.


"... yer doin' a great job..."

Just a thought...

Throughout history...
at what levels of unemployment (especially youth unemployment rates above 20%)
do street riots, revolution and overthrow of governments and those in power begin to fire up?

Politicians in Congress & Washington seriously need to think about this,
and what is going on here...
instead of bickering for bullshit posturing re-election goals.

..."Let them eat cake" has been kinda-sorta proven to NOT BE a very wise option for those in power.
