The Greatest Depression


The Age of Terror was inaugurated with a series of controlled demolitions in New York City on September 11, 2001. Now the world is being led into the Age of Biological Terror with a controlled demolition of the economy that is already causing unprecedented carnage across markets and around the globe. As the dust settles on this demolition, an entirely new economy is ready to be erected in its place: one in which no citizen will be out of the sight of the all-seeing government. This week on The Corbett Report we examine the details of this collapse and why the bankster class is seeking to destroy the financial Ponzi scheme that they themselves created.

This Day in History: Lou Hoover, a nearly forgotten First Lady 

On this day in 1874, a future First Lady is born. This gifted woman has been overshadowed a bit by her successor, Eleanor Roosevelt. What a pity. You have to wonder if there was anything the talented Lou Hoover couldn’t do!

Lou would become the first woman to earn a degree in geology from Stanford University. She once helped translate a classic work on mining from Latin into English, earning a prestigious award for her effort. She could speak five languages, including Mandarin Chinese. She was a philanthropist, an activist, a public speaker, and a leader in war relief efforts. She was the first First Lady to give a radio address. She created programs to combat the Great Depression.

In fact, if any First Lady but Eleanor Roosevelt had followed her, we would surely all know much more about Lou Hoover.

Lou met her husband in a geology class at Stanford. “Bert,” as she would call him, was immediately captivated “by her whimsical mind, her blue eyes and a broad grinnish smile.”

Unsurprisingly, the two hit it off. More on Lou’s active and varied life at the link in the comments.

Forget recession. U.S. energy stocks are weaker than they have been since the Great Depression, according to Michael Hartnett, Bank of America Corp.’s global chief investment strategist. Hartnett cited a ratio between oil and gas shares and the S&P 500 Index in a report Thursday. The comparison was based on the S&P 500 Energy Index, calculated since 1990, and an earlier industry gauge from Global Financial Data. S&P’s index set a record low relative to the S&P 500 on March 18 after plummeting 85% from a record in July 2008. Investors who go against their peers “would buy some U.S. oil stocks,” he wrote.

My dinner for tonight: Poor Man’s Meal

It’s a recipe that is very loose and has a lot of room for experimentation and substitution. You can have big chunks, tiny pieces, whatever. It’s meant to be made out of stuff you already have in the kitchen. Don’t over complicate it. This time I used:

2 lbs of potatoes (I used russet)

2 cut onions (I used yellow)

5-ish cloves of garlic (you can go more or less depending on your preference)

4 large hot dogs (any sausage or meat will work, whatever you have lying around)

2 cups of beef bullion/broth

¼ cup or so of tomato sauce

Peel and cube the potatoes, coat them in 1/3 cup oil and whatever seasoning you like. I used Lipton onion soup mix. Place in a glass casserole dish or baking tray and cook at 450F for 30-35 minutes.

Cut up the onions. Put 2 tbsp of oil is a large skillet and set to medium high heat. Throw in the onions and let them cook until they start browning. Then add the garlic and reduce heat to medium-low. Garlic cooks quickly so don’t forget to turn down the heat.

Add the tomato sauce and mix. Tomato paste works too, just add a bit of water to compensate. I used a tomato sauce I’d made myself about 2 weeks ago, but any store variety will work.

I cooked my hot dogs in a separate skillet first because I like my hot dogs very well done. If it doesn’t matter to you, just cut them up and throw them in with the onions. They’re basically cooked already so you don’t need to worry about that. If you’re using a different meat, or uncooked sausage, cook it as appropriate then add it with the onions. 

By now the potatoes should be done. Take them out of the oven and scrape them into the skillet.

Add the beef broth and stir everything together. It should mix with the tomato sauce to make a tasty sauce that flavors everything. 

And you’re done! Serve with whatever vegetable you like. No, potato is not a vegetable, make a green thing. I used zucchini spears. Just season them as you like, drizzle some oil on top, then broil them in the oven.

I got this recipe from this delightful channel, where a sweet grandma talks about her experience surviving the Great Depression. It’s….sadly topical

Great Depression-era work creation project (1934). Sports ground literally blasted out of a steep escarpment to create a spectating ampitheatre. There's   a national rugby league match scheduled there tomorrow afternoon, that would normally attract 15-20,000 spectators. The game will be played without a single paying customer going though the gates, for a stay-at-home live TV audience. Weird shit. Lilyfield.

We are going insane about the corona virus. I know we need to worry about it and be cautious around people. But we do not need a second Great Depression. We need to stay safe and calm down before we end up taking all the money out of the banks and no one making money or having any because they spent it all.
