Just like 1932

Yesterday was one of those amazing fall days where you just want to be outside. Sunny and in the 70s. Ahhhh.

So me and the mrs and the dogs got into the evil gas guzzling SUV and added to the greenhouse crisis - no scratch that, that crisis is over, added to the global warming crisis, no scratch that, added to the climate change crisis. Yeah that's it.

We just took a drive up to the mountains. Unbeknownst to me there is a little town on the way to our destination called Helen, GA. This seems like a town that was created with the sole purpose of trapping gullible Atlanta morons (aka Obama's base). This town is nothing but a series of stores selling trinkets, restaurants and bars made to look like a German village. See here what I mean. So instead of a nice leisurely drive, we got stuck in about a 45 min traffic jam going through this little burg of a mile or two. Wall to wall people and cars as far as the eye could see.

So here we are in the midst of the second Great Depression, according to Barrack Obama and his press corp, aka MSM. Everyone is getting fired, companies are going out of business, left right and center, the world is about to end. Yet on a Sunday afternoon in a town selling junk at 300% mark-ups, you can't move due to all the tourists. Amazingly, even as everyone is fighting for survival due to the "financial crisis", they have the ability to burn gas driving 200 miles round trip and buy $12 hamburgers in a restaurant that looks like Hansel and Gretel's house.

Either Americans are stupid and they don't grasp the fact that they are being lied to about the magnitude of the "crisis". Or... No there's no or. Americans - at least a good portion of them - are plain stupid. If on the one hand someone is spending $500 for nosebleed tickets to a college football game and at the same time believes that the economy is in a depression, how else can you describe that person other than stupid?
