People robbing banks, murdering and suicides in this ECONOMIC DEPRESSION!

Pushed past their breaking points, people are robbing banks to pay the rent, setting homes on fire -- even taking their own lives.

The body count is still rising. For months on end, marked by bankruptcies, foreclosures, evictions, and layoffs, the economic meltdown has taken a heavy toll on Americans. In response, a range of extreme acts including suicide, self-inflicted injury, murder, and arson have hit the local news. By October 2008, an analysis Here of press reports nationwide indicated that an epidemic of tragedies spurred by the financial crisis had already spread from Pasadena, California, to Taunton, Massachusetts, from Roseville, Minnesota, to Ocala, Florida.

In the three months since, the pain has been migrating upwards. A growing number of the world's rich have garnered headlines for high profile, financially-motivated suicides. Take the New Zealand-born "millionaire financier" who leapt in front of an express train in Great Britain or the "German tycoon" who did much the same in his homeland. These have, with increasing regularity, hit front pages around the world. An example would be New York-based money manager René-Thierry Magnon de la Villehuchet, who slashed his wrists after he "lost more than $1 billion of client money, including much, if not all, of his own family's fortune." In the end, he was yet another victim of financial swindler Bernard Madoff's $50 billion Ponzi scheme.

WISN-TV uncovered a host of similar tragedies including:

* A 21-year-old Milwaukee man who shot himself in the face after "he ran out of unemployment [insurance]."

* A 43-year-old West Allis man who hanged himself in his basement with a belt. "[T]he mortgage payments are behind," his girlfriend told the police. "There are astronomical medical bills."

* A 40-year-old Milwaukee woman who overdosed after having "financial problems."

* A 24-year-old Milwaukee man, "fired from his job three weeks before," who suffocated himself with Saran Wrap.

* And a 38-year-old Milwaukee man who shot himself in the head. He'd lost his job six weeks earlier.


  1. this explains increased abulance trucks around my area

  2. Go long ambulance companies

  3. Did you ever stop to think about Gods Holy word. "Thou shalt have no other Gods before me." We have turned our backs on the Lord.
    When you make Gold and silver your God, seek after money, this is what you get. How can the Lord, who died on the Cross bless us when we KILL babies? We call sin good and and good evil.
    2 CHRONICLES 7:14
    If my people, which are called by my name,shall humble themselves,and pray,and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
    We do not need a bail out from Washington, they are the problem. Our leaders are doing evil. What we need is Jesus! You do not think we have turned our backs on Jesus? Answer a few questions.
    How many leaders are going to jail?
    How come more money is made from Porn, than all the sports?
    How many aborations?
    How much Gang trouble?
    How come we call gay good?
    I could go on........... James Van Patten

  5. Thanks to brother James for sharing a such point of view. I strongly support it and that is true.

  6. Oh what a bunch of superstitious nonsense. All that Jesus crap is what deluded people into this funk in the first place.

  7. Oh what a bunch of superstitious nonsense. All that Jesus crap is what deluded people into this funk in the first place.

  9. Revelation 16:8-11; The Seven Vials; The fourth Angel poured out his vial upon the sun; Men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God; The fifth Angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; They blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and sores, and repented not of their deeds. A.D. 95

  10. God bless Jim for boldly speaking out for the Lord.I have had a conviction that America would one day be brought to it's knees by the hand of God for several years now.We don't know suffering in this land of selfish me first materialism and idol worship.David Wilkerson wrote a book titled America's Last Call on the brink of financial holacaust.It's copyright date is 1998.What does that tell you? Wake up and repent!!!!
