SOMETHING TO CONSIDER

Given the current national economic crisis, you may find this interesting.



The Benefits of the Inevitable Economic Depression



Americans will reduce their overall national obesity rate because they will have less money to spend daily on fatty, fast foods.



Americans will walk or ride their bicycles more because they will have less money to spend on gasoline.



Americans will spend less time on their computers because they will have less money to spend on Internet pornography and gambling.



Americans will spend more time reading than watching television because they will have less money to spend on outrageous cable and satellite fees.



Americans will spend more time worshipping God rather than Hollywood and sports celebrities because they will finally realize that during a depression the latter NEVER cared about them.



Americans will appreciate the value of a dollar and what it takes to earn one before they squander their money on frivolous things they don’t need.



Americans will appreciate that being employed is more honorable than being unemployed because, during a depression, the federal government has no money for welfare and human services.



Americans will finally demand leaders of integrity and principle who truly care about the Nation’s welfare rather than lecherous, self-serving politicians who shamelessly lust for money and power.



Americans will finally embrace hard work, personal accountability, self-achievement, and success.



Americans will finally despise sloth, irresponsibility, government waste, and failure.



Americans will finally realize the family unit, and not government, is the most important element of our society.

I hope some good things will come of it. This is something to think about.

If this is the crisis that brings folks back to the Lord, or to the Lord in the first place then so be it.
I never considered some of these statements in this light.
Happy weekend.
God bless,

Then we need to pray more for Americans. That they will not turn to GOD because they can't. But only when the understanding comes that GOD is GOD.

I have thought about the same thing... in fact, I was thinking about this post when we were all walking home from Wal Mart today, each one carrying the big pumpkin they picked out... and those pumpkins are going to become pumpkin pie and pumpkin pancakes when Halloween has passed!! =)

"Americans will appreciate that being employed is more honorable than being unemployed because, during a depression, the federal government has no money for welfare and human services."

20 percent of Americans were unemployed during the Great Depression through no fault of their own. The US government helped keep people from starving to death by providing work projects (including construction of the Empire State Building). Yes, sometimes government does solve problems. That's why we have one.
