Going to look like the good old days once the invasion reaches full peak.

Ken Burns did a fairly good job with his documentary, Dust Bowl. A lot of kids died from the dust exposure. Toughest life you can imagine.
Everybody’s got a sob story.

Shorpy is great. Thanks for mentioning it. (I pay $2.00/month subscription).
Biden has 1022 days left in office - that’s gives him plenty of time to bring starvation to our county - and extra time to come up with who he’s going to blame.
Domestic terrorists parents of young children?
I have come to despise Franklin Roosevelt for what he did to plant the seeds of destruction in this country.
One of the key things he did to contribute to the moral decay of this country was to recognize the Soviet Union in 1933. We knew they were murdering and starving their own citizens by the millions, let we gave them legitimacy.
Not to mention the New Deal.
FDR also sided with Stalin against Churchill more often than naught during WW II.
What’s wrong with cabbage and potato soup?
My Mother always said the Depression was the happiest time of her life. Her aunt and cousins came to live with them. Her Father was able to keep his job, her mom did some seamstress work, and they supported 12 people in a 3 bedroom house. All she knew was that she was never hungry, had loving adults around her, and plenty of kids in the house to play with.
This has nothing to do with the Depression. But, assuming the stock footage at 2:08 was shot in 1930 and the man in round rim glasses was in his mid 80s, he might have fought in the Civil War.
For about 20 years now, I have pursued information about what really happened during the McCarthy Era, and the book "Blacklisted by History" by M. Stanton Evans had such a profound effect on me, that when I heard the author's library and notes all went to Diana West when he died, I had to look at her take on this.
For probably 20 years, I have had a copy of Joseph McCarthy's ghostwritten book America's Retreat From Victory: The Story of George Catlett Marshall for which he was vilified (based on his speech in front of Congress) but it sure does explain a lot of what we see in retrospect. And the war strategy looks very different to me now that what I was taught in school, as do the actions of Joseph McCarthy, who I regard as an American Hero.
Read: FDR’s Folly - How his policies extended the Depression and even deepened it in 1936 just when we were about to climb out of it; he put us back in it until WW2 started.
You have a very good perspective on it and are knowledgeable.
I am still perplexed by George Marshall. He seems to have undermined the USA in certain areas. Do you have an opinion on him?
Cabbage and potato soup-Hell of a lot better than flour pudding.
Hell of a lot better than flour pudding.
Or living in a barn and snaring rabbits so the mother and siblings can eat.
How they survived I will never know.
Or oatmeal meatloaf.
