In October, 1929, America its worst economic situation to date: the Great Depression. For the next decade, FDR managed to create new programs (some of which were ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court) for America and Americans. The Gold Reserve Act of 1934 illegally forced Americans to "exchange" their gold for paper money or face prison time. Other government agencies like National Recovery Act (NRA), came into existence and forced businesses to abide by their rules. The NRA also urged people to spy on neighbors, reminiscent of the DHS' "If you see something, say something" mentality.
In what way is President Obama like FDR? Join Dr. Fred and his co-host DavidR for Truth Trends Radio as they examine the possibilities on tonight's show from 8:00 to 9:00pm EST.
According to the US census statistics, America lost 10 million of its population from 1931 to 1940. A Russian researcher, Boris Borisov worked on uncovering the death toll during the American Famine and his estimates are that 5 million children died of starvation and 2.5 million adults.
“Few people know about five million American farmers (about a million families) whom banks ousted from them lands because of debts. The US government did not provide them with land, work, social aid, pension – nothing,” the article says.
“Every sixth American farmer was affected by famine. People were forced to leave their homes and go to nowhere without any money and any property. They found themselves in the middle of nowhere enveloped in massive unemployment, famine and gangsterism.”
This is equal to all the Jews that died during the WWII Holocaust, so an event equal in magnitude. Boris Borisov describes the movement of the American population out of the Dust Bowl affected region as a Hunger March

Join Alex Primo and Asha Zuri Thursday May 28th at 9 pm EST as we dissect, debate, and discuss the secret that Black folks don't talk about ... Depression in our community.
One in ten Americans will be affected by some form of Depression during their lifetime, usually caused by a major life event such as divorce, unemployment, poor health, or a death in the family. And depression is fast becoming a worldwide issue for the health industry.
How does this affect Black America specifically? Well, it has been noted by researchers that those living in poverty, us, are two and a half times more likely to experience depression. Additionally, 90% of Black males who suffer from this condition seek no treatment. On top of that women are more likely to experience depression than men, so consequently that means that Black women are suffering the most from this ailment.
“I’ve tried to commit suicide over 15 times. I have the scars on my arms of wanting to kill myself and not even know why,” said 45-year-old Tracey Hairston, a member of the health center who has bipolar disorder.
A report published by researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison found that poverty, parenting, racial and gender discrimination put Black women — particularly low-income Black women — at greater risk for major depressive disorder (MDD).
Now that we know the problem, let's talk solutions brothers and sisters.

So, I'm checking out some old shows, and forget what I'm doing, and forget I'm listening to the show, and so I listen as a listener - WOW! I says to me, I says - what the hell???? I'm laughing my ass off - (so you know I can't sit down now, because there is a blotch where my ass use to be)
Man this show is funny. Can you believe some of the stuff we say? They are ridiculously ridiculous. They are stupidly stupid, and informatively informative - we are to the extreme. You will learn to love us.
Indigo children, according to a pseudoscientific New Age concept, are children who are believed to possess special, unusual and sometimes supernatural traits or abilities
The indigo child is here to bring us closer to our true essence. We think our minds are separate because of our bodies. These children know differently. A true indigo travels comfortably between worlds usually at night when we think they're asleep.
Our thoughts and feelings are not our own. The truth is, we have forgotten who we are and how our minds are connected to each other. Indigos remember and have an inner knowing that far exceeds our psychic abilities.
If you have more questions let us know. I will send you straigh to \Bella BY THE WAY Bella is a EXCELLENT EXCELLENT COMPASSIONATE Life Coach
