Turner feels he is doing god’s will. He hears voices from above guiding him on his mission. In Turners rebellion he garnered a force of eighty slaves and by the time they’re arrested by the militia, they’re sixty victims all in the name of god’s will. “Rise of the Cotton Kingdom” (1836). Norcoms letter to James C. Johnson “I have met with I suppose from 50 to 100 men who (many of then are entirely destitute of common education) five years since could not get credit for a pair of shoes, now worth 100,000 to a million of dollars” (Norcom p. 217).

A conservative estimate of over $114 billion annually goes to Israel alone and I would venture to say we easily send an additional $200 to $300 billion elsewhere. My question is why? American are living in times that skirt the great depression; unemployment is at a staggering 9.0%, people are losing their homes daily with many having nowhere to live. Our welfare system is almost bankrupt as is social security; by the time I am eligible to collect SSI in 14 years there probably will not be anything to collect.
On 12 October 1933 Dillinger's pals, recently escaped from Indiana's state prison, broke him out of jail. Over the next several months, Dillinger and his gang robbed several banks in Indiana before heading to Florida and then Arizona. He was arrested in Arizona and extradited to Indiana, where he once again escaped jail on 3 March 1934. Dillinger then crossed the Indiana-Illinois state line and headed for Chicago, sparking the interest of federal investigators (in the division that later became the F.B.I.). Over the next four months Dillinger's escapades -- daring robberies and narrow escapes from the law -- were popular newsreel features and he became something of a folk hero.

“I saw what real power was that day,” Swartz recalls. “I didn’t realize how hungry I was for that kind of purpose.” Timberland began shutting down operations one day each year so the company’s thousands of employees could get paid to take part in various company sponsored philanthropic projects, such as building homeless shelters or cleaning up playgrounds. The company started giving employees 40 hours of paid leave annually to volunteer at charities of their choosing. But the emphasis on social responsibility does not come cheap.

In an attempt to save money, Nixon had delayed pay raises to federal employees by 6 months, which resulted in a national postal worker’s strike. Nixon yielded to the postal workers commands and un-did some of the budget balancing that Arthur Burns had required.

It was hard enough with just a recession, but now banks are much stricter when it comes to lending. Surveys done show that 63 percent of companies with less than 100 employees are having trouble with credit, 12 percent had to lay off employees because of it, and 1 in 5 of 600 polled are at risk of going out of business in the next six months. In a brief interview with Mr. Paul Braungart III, entrepreneur and president of Regional Capital Group, a commercial real estate lender and investment company based in Marlton NJ, Mr. Braungart explained that the crisis has impacted values of property and the ability to buy and sell.
