I understand, OP.

Some days I wake up, consider the situation as you described, and wonder if I died and have been placed in something like 'purgatory', like being punished not quite to Hell but more like an ankle bracelet and house arrest.

Just sayin'.

Re: I Cry When I Think Back How Things Used To Be
me too..

only it was just suburbs Boston.

actually, just sitting and talking with neighbors, drinking lemonade in summer as Boston is insanely humid then..

or even more recently, in Wisconsin.. listening to thunderstorms roll in.. the state is so flat you can see these beautiful storms for miles...

and then MD.. out my front door were horses at neighbors, and my backyard a forest and side had cows and farm land. They grew feed corn and soy... I used to be annoyed at the drying machines for the corn.

Being able to hear and smell time passing..

Now in the city area of DC.. ugh traffic..ugh.. can't wait to move..

a reprieve now in France is somewhat a breath of fresh air to visit friends here and work..

Plan: leaving DC end of summer..

Speak for yourself, I left a miserable office job and started a hemp farm on my family land. My kids play on my farm all day and I’m making a boat load of money. What’s preventing you from moving your family back out to a farm?

Re: I Cry When I Think Back How Things Used To Be
I was born on a thousand acre farm which was homesteaded by my family. My parents moved us from the farm to the city when I was 11 years old.

I've always dreamed going back. Always. I would visit the homestead every other year when I got older.

I went back to the farm at age 50. Now I'm 52. I purchased some land, horses, tractors, etc. It's F#CKING awesome.

AND! I still get to come back online and bitch about things!

GOD bless America!

Re: I Cry When I Think Back How Things Used To Be
I can never go back to my early days growing up on the farm. Had time to enjoy each day, the warm sun the hay in the barn. Even with all the work there was to be done. Eating an apple off the tree, taking a long drink from the cool spring. Working the garden.....What the hell happened.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75219614


People brought hell here. Have to say more I guess, they created thing we did not need and set out to total destroy our country which is why it hard to go back to the farm. It does not mean you can not go back, it just a little bit more tempting to not do so. I would get rid of almost all the invention since before AC electric and not TV at all.


Mules eat grass, they can be watered at a spring or from a bucket, they pull a heavy load and it does run fast, it nice and slow to enjoy what going on in and around you.

I had none of these things we were late getting electricity, I know more now, don't need as much electricity with nothing much to use it for.
 Quoting: hankie


Electric bill was never over $20.

Property tax about the same. All you had to do was scrounge up a few dollars for the whole year, food was cheap but good mom always had something made from the basics. Even BBQ squirrel.She would pressure cook them.

I must have really missed out on something.

My family owns a farm. We hired a farmer to run it.

Everyone wanted to do other things with their lives instead of wasting their lives farming.

Re: I Cry When I Think Back How Things Used To Be
What happened?


Military Industrial Complex became a siphon for every government dollar that wasn't tied-down. This was how The Great Depression was put behind us: deficit spending.

Inflation robbing US of the value of our money. Really got serious with elimination of silver-backing in 1964. Kennedy was assassinated because he wasn't on board with 'all' the criminality... There was no stopping them...

So much criminality became institutionalized... Huge inflation of the mid-70s. Wholesale prices that changed daily. Then came the tax laws that emboldened the market pirates...

Corporate-Raiders financing takeovers to steal the pension funding which their hired-actuaries certified to be "excess".

Junk Bonds issued by firms that couldn't otherwise float a $5 loan from a friend...

Federal Reserve loaning money direct at below interbank rates to even the smallest member banks. This enabled them to no longer pay interest for CDs to acquire funds to loan... This also forced retirees, elderly into the stock market where market manipulation caused huge losses.

Most corps by the late 90s were no longer paying much in dividends, as 'raising stock values' was deemed more beneficial to stockholders

Govt regulation and 3-letter agencies basically eliminated start-ups and mom/pop businesses. Costs tons of $$ just to open a business, and continual regulator compliance.


What happened? The USA was Betrayed and Looted. About the only professional class not involved were engineers; except The Big Engineering Firms went along with all the govt regulations. Think Bechtel... longtime right-hand of the MIC and govt expansion...

CIA running guns for coke in the 80s. This caper evolving after Reagan was shot. Reagan never the same after being shot... GWB running the show from then on. All the presidents and their men from Bush 1 to Obama were part of the same enterprise... Before Reagan, Jimmy Carter gave away The Panama Canal... Now the Chinese Communists hold it!

What's happened? The social and economic chaos was engineered to distract-confuse YOU and enable their eventual Get-Away... Trump might be the wildcard they couldn't plan for...

Don't expect this to end smoothly, or for the USA to survive. Too many, (millions in fact) in all walks of life stand to lose their ill-gotten gains if their scheme is brought to an end.

It's all been funded by looting The American Treasury. None of the $22 Trillion claimed to be 'National Debt' went for infrastructure or other valid Constitutional Purposes... When you add the 'lost money' from Fed Dept Budgets, and Govt Unfunded Liabilities, plus the 'risk' of derivatives which Govt has chosen to 'backstop'; the USA is in the hole for closer to $1.5 Quadrillion Dollars.

There's no Coming Back from this...

All the money has been stolen along with our children's future.


That's What Happened....

We must all realize that our planet is being resourced and we are the laborers used to resource it.

Awaken to see who is using us.

Who taxes us?

Who lives like parasites off of our labors?

Who is the 1%, the wealthy, the elitist, TPTB?

Who owns the banks?

Who owns the farming seeds?

Who owns the food manufacturers?

Who owns the energy companies?


There are your reasons the world is the way it is.

They control the money, the resources, and ultimately the people's lives, US.

That's a good way to look at it. Sounds like something the old neighbors down the creek might say, you know the ones that were born in the 1890's I'd visit every so often when spending a day walking in the woods.

You can have your pastoral existence again if you really want it.
You're free that way.

But going back in human history, agriculture may have been a big mistake and damaging to natural human existence of hunting and gathering.

Pick your apples and feed the domesticated animals if it makes you feel better but 1750 wasn't the pinnacle of human existence.

And anyway, St Reagan killed off the small farms in the 1980s in favor of big corporations.

From how I remember it seems like the mid 1980's small towns starting having a lot more crime problems, inflation starting to kick in, more EPA regulations etc. Just everything in general got a lot more complicated.

I remember when school lunches went to crap. We had about 150 kids in my K through 8th grade school, One cook could take care of the whole lunch she would make homemade chili, huge cinnamon rolls, beans and cornbread,then about my 6th grade year we got two new cooks and corn dogs and pizza. Really changed a lot.

Social media made people cold, uncaring and combative.

People have lost their connection to one another. They've lost the drive to socialize and have friends and form solid connections. Instead they opt to argue, fight and divide themselves.

This has made society negative, bitter, and have no hope or joy for the future.
