This is the year to see who falls out of the wagon and gets trampled by the stampede. There is a feeling of "impending doom", a term usually reserved for manic depressives or apocalyptic people.
I truly hope that nothing terrible happens, since in today's world there is too many greedy bastards. Too many people with guns, practicing for years to have their way with whoever gets in their way. Too many people with no skills whatsoever to live in the wild, or live on pennies per day.
Bread lines were real in my father's teenage years. There was nothing, no work, no nothing. Just dust and whatever they could scrape together off the land. Having a gun was for shooting rabbits, not people. A great thinning of the herd would happen in today's world.
