Rain In June???? Cleaning And Preps!!!!

It's been about ten years ago when it last rained in the Sacramento area in June. So today we are at 50-60* and rain and I love it. So with the rain and the cool weather I got some time to get out in the shop and do a little work. I am going from box to box and getting rid of stuff I just don't need so my wife can sale in the yard sale this weekend. I have found so much junk I don't know why I ever bought to start with but with a little luck someone will want this stuff and buy it all this weekend.
Now the preps part...... I made about 15 slinky antenna's today to sale(The links to the right of this post has my slinky antenna's at a better price than my e-bay store) and I made a few for friends as gifts. I got out the food saver and bagged up a few first aid items and a few gun parts so I can back them away in my gun kit. Sometimes I fill like I'm so behind in my preps but at the same time I talk with others and see I am way ahead of most, but I still think I have so much to do. I have a plan and I make list and work from the list in adding items and making stuff for my preps.
This week I added a new weather radio, and the nice thing is I got it for free using my Delta Sky Miles. With The TSA fools I don't think I will be flying anytime soon so I didn't want my miles to go to waste so I cashed them in on a few cool little items.

Midland Pocket Weather Alert Radio
A pocket-sized forecaster.

Receive alerts of dangerous weather 24-hours-a-day with the HH-50 from Midland. This handheld radio features an alert system that turns on when inclement weather arises. The auto scan feature finds an available weather channel for you, while the 6-inch telescoping antenna ensures you receive clear reception no matter what. Has an alert system that turns on your unit when dangerous weather or civil emergencies arise. Weather test button ensures the weather alert function on the radio is functioning properly
Auto scan feature helps you find an available weather channel
Get clear reception with the 6-inch telescoping antenna
Uses 3 "AAA" batteries

It works great and is small and easy to carry with you on a day hike or and full bug out if NOAA is still on the air?

Get you preps in order and add to them as you can, Hell I know times are bad and I'm sure they will just get worse in the weeks and months to come.

The legacy of Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson was a remarkable man who began his learning very early in life and never stopped.
At 5, he began studying under his cousins' tutor.

At 9, he studied Latin, Greek and French.

At 14, he studied classical literature and additional languages.

At 16, he entered the College of William and Mary.

At 19, he studied Law for 5 years, starting under George Wythe.

At 23, he started his own law practice.

At 25, he was elected to the Virginia House of Burgesses.

At 31, he wrote the widely circulated "Summary View of the Rights of British America " and retired from his law practice.

At 32, he was a Delegate to the Second Continental Congress.

At 33,he wrote the Declaration of Independence.

At 33, he took three years to revise Virginia 's legal code and wrote a Public Education bill and a statute for Religious Freedom.

At 36, he was elected the second Governor of Virginia succeeding Patrick Henry.

At 40, he served in Congress for two years.

At 41, he was the American minister to France and negotiated commercial treaties with European nations along with Ben Franklin and John Adams.

At 46, he served as the first Secretary of State under George Washington.

At 53, he served as Vice President and was elected president of the American Philosophical Society.

At 55,he drafted the Kentucky Resolutions and became the active head of Republican Party.

At 57, he was elected the third president of the United States ..

At 60, he obtained the Louisiana Purchase, doubling the nation's size.

At 61, he was elected to a second term as President.

At 65, he retired to Monticello .

At 80, he helped President Monroe shape the Monroe Doctrine.

At 81, he almost single-handedly created the University of
Virginia and served as its first president.

At 83, he died, on the 50th anniversary of the Signing of the Declaration of Independence along with John Adams.

Thomas Jefferson knew because he himself had studied the previously failed attempts at government. He understood actual history, the nature of God, God's laws, and the nature of man. That happens to be way more than what most understand today. His is a voice from the past to lead us into the future..

John F. Kennedy held a dinner in the white House for a group of the brightest minds in the nation at that time.. He made this statement:" This is perhaps the assembly of the most intelligence ever to gather at one time in the White House with the exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone."

When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe , we shall become as corrupt as Europe.
Thomas Jefferson

The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.
Thomas Jefferson

It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes, a principle which if acted on, would save one-half the wars of the world.
Thomas Jefferson

I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.
Thomas Jefferson

My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.
Thomas Jefferson

No free man shall ever be deprived the use of arms.
Thomas Jefferson

The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.
Thomas Jefferson

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
Thomas Jefferson

To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.

Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:
I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property - until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

Defending Your Survival Retreat, Just My Slant On The Idea

Just having a survival retreat is not enough, you have to defend that retreat and keep the stuff you have. A strong defensive plan is a must if a disaster or the collapse of this country leave many without help. Many people don't even have food and water for more than a day or two. The survival instinct kicks in and thousands even millions of survivors will be out on a mission to survive at any cost. Everything is fair game and you better believe the hoards will be looking for you, the prepared survivalist because they know that the survivalist will have the needed supplies. This is where you hear lots of people talk about never telling people about what you have and what you store. The reason is that if these people know where you live and they know you have food and water you will see them after a disaster because you have so much and because you have so much and they have zero preps you have to give them some of your preps. Just having preps makes you a target and makes you open to attacks. When you pick your retreat do it for many reasons.
1st- Location, your retreat needs to be away from cities and towns( off the main road and far away from anyone in a rural area)
2nd- Set up a compound with a area for living and for growing food and set a perimeter safety zone and keep watch for looters and zombies (because the fools out looking for food and other stuff will be just like the walking dead)
3rd- Walking and driving a truck or car or even a horse will leave tracks and the walking dead may come a cross them and walk right up to your retreat so cover your tracks and make the land around your retreat look like a ghost town with nothing around and nothing to loot. Never leave anything out that would make the hordes think there is a retreat near by, use as many natural barriers as you can to cover up your retreat.
4th- Know the area around your retreat get out and map it and know where the high ground is and know where the best cover is if you need to take cover. You will need to set up patrols to scout out the hordes of looters, but if you did your job and got a great retreat area you will never see even one walking dead. Know your terrain and understand how to use it to both your advantage and a threat’s disadvantage
5th- Once you are set up and you have your retreat running don't do things that are sure fire giveaways like loud gunshots, fires with lots of smoke or loud noise. Stay under the radar and stay out of sight and don't send out an open invitation to the walking dead.
6th- Expect the Unexpected and never assume the walking dead will enter at one point and not another. And that walking dead out there may be a retired Army Ranger or a Fresh young Marine with a group of friends so you will need to be ready for most anything.
7th- At night a fire is a sure giveaway so build a nice fire pit and surround it with a block out with no trees near by this way from miles away you will not see the light of the fire. And you will need to keep light use down to almost zero. Any light at night can give the hordes a path to your retreat.
8th- Set up booby traps that will help you to hear the coming horde of walking dead.
9th- Send out long range scouts to check out the area far from the retreat, this will help to give you good intel on the hordes and what they are up to. But never let them follow you back to your retreat, this would defeat the whole reason for the long range scouting.
10th- Remember if you have 20, 25 or 30 people to defend your retreat and 75% of them know how to use a gun well, but you have intel that a horde of 125 are heading your way and most have guns. Even with the one defender is as good as two or three attackers you will still be out numbered, this is where a last chance plan comes into play. Maybe a set of traps 20 or 30 yards out that can be remotely set off to cut down the numbers of the attacking horde.

There are so many ways to plan for defending you retreat and this is just my slant on the whole thing. I'm sure there are very many more people with more info on this and even better info. If you have a survival retreat and plan to keep your prep you must have a plan to fight off hordes or the single zombie. Now is the time to learn to shoot and fight not after you get to your retreat. Plan now to survive.

More BS In The News

I found this today on Yahoo and I have a few problems with the story.

Please under stand that I am not defending hate groups or racist!!!

In the story they block all the groups as one, the neo-Nazi Aryan Nation, the sometimes-violent anti-government groups and Patriots. I don't like to see all three grouped as one because they all are different in many ways. I feel as if I'm a patriot and I hate this government till the point I get sick but in no way am I a Neo-Nazi or racist and I plan no violent act on my government, but if you read this story at Yahoo you would think that all of them are the same and if you are a Patriot and make a stand for the Constitution then you are blocked into the bigger groups of "Hate Groups". Why in the hell would you call a Patriot, a person who wants this country to just follow the laws that our Fore Fathers set up and for his/her government to keep out of his/her day to day life a member of a Hate Group? Why would the news do this? I will tell you it is because they want to mark you as a evil person so when the ATF, FBI, CIA, NSA, FEMA and local police show up at your door and kick it in and shoot you and your family and your small family dog down you can be put into the group of American Haters and you will just become one of the many members of a hate group. That way when the story hits the news you are a monster and an evil person and that makes it the right thing to do and so easy to just kill you and then they move on to the next family to kill.
I'm sure there are hate groups and I know there are racist and Nazi groups all over the country and I'm sure the story is right about the number of the groups being higher in that part of the country but my problem with the whole story is how they just tossed the Patriot Movement under the bus and blocked us in with the other groups. I have read that some of the hate groups you read about are just groups that meet and talk about how the laws and powers to be are getting out of hand and then the next thing you know your group is on the hate group list. I read years ago that a group of WWII reenactment guys who were German SS troops and dressed up once a month ended up on a Neo-Nazi Hate Group List, Why? Not one of them were in a hate group and not one of them were in any group out side of there WWII reenactment group.
This is all just setting us up for the big fall and the collapse! We are in the collapse now and the start of the plan is under way. We are in a Police State Now! And with each week it gets worse with new laws and more taxes and more BS red tape to cut through day after day just to make a life for yourself and your family.
People please wake up and start to prep!! Stock food, water and medical supplies along with other needed supplies to survive the coming collapse(that is already under way).
Make a plan
Work on the plan
and survive!!!!!

Having A Group Survival Retreat

Having a survival retreat that you can escape to may mean the difference in whether you survive or die in the aftermath of a major disaster. Living in a large metropolitan area like a big or small city or town is great when everything is going well, however, all cities and towns depend on power to provide electricity and to pump water and remove waste, and on delivery of food supplies several times a week. This infrastructure will break down quickly after an emergency or collapse, leaving the citizens without power, water, food and basic services.
For many years small groups of people have been banding together and purchasing land in areas they feel will be safe. Working together people can accomplish more, store more and be much safer than alone. This applies to every aspect of life including purchasing land. With the state of the economy and the out look for the housing market for the next few years most land prices in many locations are very low. I have seen 10 acres of land for as low as $4000-$8000 here in the crazy state of California. So I'm sure land can be found for less in other states. And just look at it like this, You and four other families go in on this 10 acres of land and each family gets one acre to live on. That takes up five acres with five acres left over to grow a big community garden, fruit trees, berry bushes and some goats, chickens and a few dairy cows. With a full one acre to live on you could have a nice home or cabin with a small garden and chickens or goats on your spot of land to add to your own food. And with the community garden and animals this should be a good set up. I'm sure if you could get 15, 20 or 25 acres and still only have five families it would be much better, but the more land you have the more people you will need to work it and the bigger your are the more you will stand out. So my advice would be to keep it to 10-15 acres with 5-6 families or a max total of 10 adults and 10 kids. A ratio of 15 adults to 5 kids would be best because the more strong hands to work, it sure helps the work get done a lot faster. And with more adults you have less of a problem with security because in a post collapse event you will need people with guns ready to fight off any attacks of your retreat. And remember you don't have to kill all of the attackers you just need to kill so many that your retreat is to costly to fight for, and if you get hit with an attack once be sure you will get hit again and with more force. Your best bet is to stay under the radar and not be seen by anyone ever. Undeveloped land usually lacks a dependable water supply so get land near water and woods so you don't need to go far for need supplies. You will need water and a few wells on the land would be great or a small stream or river would be nice and wood will be needed for fires and other things so being close to both is a good idea.
Before purchasing land that you will use for a survival retreat, you need to consider every aspect. . You will need shelter of some kind as well. Tents are great for summer use and some are designed to withstand temperatures below zero but they are still tents. So build a few cabins to start with or use a few cargo containers to start with and as time goes by add on and update your retreat.
If you know a few good people why can trust and I mean really trust and you know you can live near for long amounts of time and get along. Remember you will have to make a life with the people you shelter with and if you fight now I'm sure when the collapse hits and food and water is hard to get you will find new and more things to fight about. You Must Find Good People!!!!! People you can live with and work with day after day and even the best people will fight from time to time but you need to fit as a group just like a great pair of jeans.
Take some time and look into group retreat survival.
And As Always Prep, Prep, Prep and Prep some more!!!!!!!

NBC Cuts One Nation Under God From Pledge

More BS from the news world, here is the link to the story. Sorry I have to use a link from a smaller news outlet but it seems that no other Main News Network has made a link so far just small ones.

Here is the e-mail I sent to NBC today........ And I stand behind my e-mail me and my family will no longer watch NBC until the truth is put out. The nice thing about all of this is that it has even pissed off my wife and now we may just drop our cable TV and be done with the death box. I urge you all to e-mail them too, I'm sure it will amount to zero because they really don't care what we think. They just want to think for us!!!

The E-Mail
U.S Open and the Pledge of Allegiance

Dear NBC,

I have watched your news and sports for many years and some of the TV shows you have put out. But after your stunt with the Pledge of Allegiance and omitting One Nation Under God is the last straw for me and my family. I plan to blog of this and tell everyone I know to stop watching your network. I think you left this part of the Pledge out for a reason and I do hope it was worth it for you and your network. Every year more and more people step on the rights of Christians and the rights of good God loving people of this country and for what? To not offend the beliefs of non Christians. In 1954 they added the words Under God and for the last 57 years this has been The Pledge of Allegiance and if you don't like it then you need to do it within the law and go though Congress and have it voted on. You or no other News Cartel has the right to change the words to our Pledge. And I'm very sorry but I do not believe your story about the whole thing being edited out, this is not the full truth and you know it. You Sirs are liars and should come forth with the real truth and stand up with a real back bone and stand behind what you have done. If you think the part of the Pledge, "One Nation Under God' need not be there then say it and don't be cowards and hide it, you should step out and tell the nation how NBC feels. I for one think you will not make a stand and you will do as all news cartels will do and have done over the years and that is to lie to and distort the truth.

I remember the news when I was a very young man and I feel there was more truth then than today and my prayer is that one day the news networks of today will just report the real truth and not the watered down news.

My Prayers are with this Great Country, because it is dying a slow death and the news networks are helping nail the coffin shut.

Make a stand and report the truth!!!!

Stop with the lies!!!!

We Are In A Police State

Police State:
The term police state describes a state in which the government exercises rigid and repressive controls over the social, economic and political life of the population. A police state typically exhibits elements of totalitarianism and social control, and there is usually little or no distinction between the law and the exercise of political power by the executive.

The inhabitants of a police state experience restrictions on their mobility, and on their freedom to express or communicate political or other views, which are subject to police monitoring or enforcement. Political control may be exerted by means of a secret police force which operates outside the boundaries normally imposed by a constitutional state.


In a free society:

1-Police agencies respond only to evidence of planned and actual criminal activity.

2-Police officers keep the peace; they do not investigate citizens and activities unless there is some reason to investigate.
3-Police do not investigate citizens' attitudes toward the central government, only their action.
4-Citizen dissent is lawful and police agencies do not investigate citizens' attitudes toward the criminal justice apparatus.

We know that the beginning stages of a police state exist in the United States when:

1-A leader is brought into power through illegal means

2-A national catastrophe is used as the pretext to begin a war and institute extraordinary restrictions on constitutional liberties
3-Citizen dissent is held to be treasonous
4-The constitutional separation of powers is abrogated by a power-mad executive branch which controls or intimidates the other two branches of government

I saw this video at infowars a few months ago and liked it.

The Collapse Of Social Order In The City

The collapse of social order is perhaps the greatest risk of staying in the city during a crisis. What, exactly, would cause this collapse of social order?

Lack of three things: food, water, and money.

“Social order” is a delicate thing, and it exists as a psychological barrier that could easily collapse under the right conditions. We all saw this during the L. A. Riots following the Rodney King trial verdict as citizens of L.A. set fire to their own town, yanked people from vehicles and beat them literally to death, and even fired guns at firemen attempting to save their buildings! More recently we were all witness to the looting, violence and total breakdown of society following Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. What allowed this to happen? Simple: the simultaneous melting away of the psychological barrier of “order.” Once people realized 911 couldn’t handle the load, or was offline, that the local police were helpless or had simply abandoned their posts, “Law and Order” ceased to exist in their minds. They then conducted their lives in the way they always wanted to, but couldn’t because of the police. That is, they ran out to the local stores and just took whatever they wanted (looting). They took our their racial frustration on innocent victims who happened to be driving through the area, and they let loose on a path of destruction that only stopped when men with rifles (the National Guard) were called in to settle things down. The only thing that put a stop to the looting was the National Guard and the fact of death for looting. Imagine store owners lying prone on the roofs of their stores with AK-47's, firing at anyone who approached. This is exactly what happened in Los Angeles. But worse, imagine the lawless horde firing at the rescue copters trying to bring in supplies to the desperate masses. The National Guard eventually got things under control. This event was isolated, however, to one city. Imagine a hundred cities experiencing the same thing. Will the National Guard be able to handle the load? Not likely. What about local police? They aren’t fools; if things look bad enough, they’ll grab their families and head for the hills, just like they did in New Orleans. No pension is worth getting killed for. A few U. S. cities could be transformed into literal war zones overnight. It would require all-out martial law and military force to have any chance whatsoever of bringing order to these streets. And the reality is that there are not enough military in the USA to secure all of the cities if this happens.

Risks in the City
The city presents some serious risks during a crisis. The four most serious ones are:
1. The collapse of social order (riots),
2. The failure of the water treatment and delivery systems,
3. The depletion of food supplies and
4. The failure of the power grid.

When people run out of food, some will begin ransacking their neighborhood, searching for something to eat. (Remember that in a city, a “neighbor” does not mean the same thing as a “neighbor” in the country. They are not necessarily your friends.) It won’t take long for violence to take over in some cities. While certain regions will certainly manage to keep things under control and people will form lines at the local (depleted) Red Cross shelter and food banks, other cities will see an explosion of violence. Imagine the gang-infested regions of L.A., Chicago, New York, St. Louis & New Orleans. Do you think those people are going to stand in line and wait? They already have guns and have already shown in the past that they will use them, just think of how bad it will get with no laws or police around to enforce the law. Pent-up racial tensions & hostilities will simply serve as justification for shooting people of the same or other color in order to get their food.

The Depletion of Food Supplies
The food supplies will likely dwindle quickly as we approach a possible crisis due to people stocking up just in case. Once the crisis actually hits, expect to see breakdowns in the transportation sector that will result in major delays in food delivery. This means food may arrive in sporadic fashion in some cities (if at all). Once this happens, food suddenly becomes really valuable to people (even though they take it for granted today). And that means any small shipment of food that arrives will be quickly grabbed and eaten or stored. It only takes one week without food to remind people how much they actually need it, so expect the atmosphere to be that of a “near panic” if food is delayed by as little as three days. The level of panic will vary from city to city. Some cities or towns may experience very little difficulty receiving food. Others may face near-starvation circumstances.
Even if the food somehow gets into the cities, lack of money (due to the government not sending out checks) could cause the same thing. Eventually, lack of money results in looting and mass theft and this results in a collapse of social order. Water; the same thing (but faster). The collapse of social order is also very dangerous because it doesn’t require any “actual” collapse of the power grid, telecommunications, transportation or banking. Social order is a psychological artifact. It is a frame of mind, and any global panic can quickly remove the mental barrier that right now keeps people basically “lawful.” As a result of all this, if water stops flowing, here are the events you can expect to see in some of the worse-off cities:
* Looting of all the grocery stores by the first or second day (remember New Orleans?)
* Minor outbreaks of violence during the looting. Shop owners, for example, may attempt to defend their shops with firearms (Just like the L.A. Riots)
* Mass exodus of residents from the city in search of water
* Ransacking of any houses or farms within a gas-tank radius of the city, presumably by desperate people with guns.
* Mass traffic jams on the outbound highways as people run out of gas and abandon their vehicles (if bad enough, this could actually block the highways and trap people in the cities) (Remember Hurricane Rita?)
* Mass outbreak of water-borne diseases as people use streams and rivers as both a water fountain and a bathroom. People crapping upstream are going to infect the people drinking downstream. Very few have any kind of water filtration device. That last point is really critical. Once the water flow stops, disease is going to strike.
The Failure of the Power Grid
Nothing is as suddenly obvious nor has such a gigantic psychological impact as the failure of the power grid. When the electricity stops, almost everybody knows it at the same instant (unless it happens at night). Naturally, during the first few hours of the power failure, if it occurs, people will assume it’s a temporary situation. Maybe a tree fell on some power lines, or perhaps a transformer blew up somewhere nearby. They'll sit tight and wait for the power to come back on. What if it doesn’t? Then the city faces a severe problem. Without power, obviously, everything shuts down. Within hours, the looting begins in the more crime-ridden cities (we saw this in New York a few decades ago.). The longer the power stays off, the worse the social disorder. The loss of power will bring the entire city to a halt. While vehicles may get around for a few more days (using whatever fuel they have left), businesses obviously won't be operating. Houses that depend on electricity for heat will quickly reach Winter temperatures, freezing many occupants to death. While those that depend on electricity for Air Conditioning will just as quickly reach Summer temperatures, resulting in death from heat stroke. Hospitals and police stations may have generators on hand, with a few days worth of fuel, but in short order, that will be depleted, too. But the water treatment plant will almost certainly be off-line without power, causing all the events mentioned in the water section, above. Let's face it, the power is the worst thing to be without in the city. If you have power, you can survive a food shortage, perhaps even a short water shortage. But without power, all bets are off. If you have a “bug-out” vehicle stocked and ready to go (see below), this might be the time to bail.

Off The Shelf Food Storage Per Week For One Year

Here is my per week list for off the shelf shopping there are only a few weeks you would have to shop on line, this is with the canned chees and butter and with the wheat. But some of you may have one or both in your area and not have to go on line for them. At the end of this year long list you should have a real good amount of food but I don't think it would be a full year of food for a person but would be real close.
The cost of each week will be up and down if you can't afford to do as much then cut back and if you can afford more then buy more, because the more you have the better off you will be. I would shop around and look for the best price on each item and only buy that item at a good price. I know that at a few stores near me they have bulk foods and from time to time they go on sale so that is a great time to stock up. Most weeks are $25-$50 but a few weeks are more and a few are a lot more. And most items have a real good shelf life but some are not so good so remember that as you buy. I made this list for a few friends that don't want to do the on line thing and just want to shop off the shelf at there store near them. With that in mind here is my list.

We have been sitting on our asses and not fighting the system and we have just let the bullshit go on and on and still most do nothing. We live in a world that is full of powerful people who play with the lives of the sheeple like puppet masters and us low dirt people are the puppets. They pull a string and we hop around like little fools for there amusement. And all of us are part of it one way or another, we either pay taxes of some sort or work in a job that feeds the "beast"(The Evil Empire) and we all add to it in some part. And yes I know a few have stepped outside the beast and I am so jealous of you and the fact that you have rid yourself of the chains of slavery. Because every person caught in the "beast" is a slave to the master and he is a vengeful and evil master. We need to plan to fight the evil empire and survive the coming collapse and the only way to survive is to store foods, water, medical supplies and have guns and ammo and know how to use them.

Get Your House In Order!!!

I think the collapse is getting close, I mean the full collapse because I now think we are in the collapse now just in a slow fall. But I think that the dollar is just about dead and the economy is in full overload. So many of the Americans are at the edge of the cliff now and more craziness is on it's way. All it will take is a small push and it's endgame for most people. I know that gas is going down a little but look at the cost of food it's still going up. The cost of most things at the store is going up. And it's getting to the point some people are pushed itto a decision pay day of do I get this or do I get that! Food or lights, gas for the car or food for the baby why are we pushed us against the wall? Why would our government let this happen? I can tell you, because THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT YOU!!! They just don't care and never will care. The saying, "For The People By The People" is only said when it's election time and then the next day gets tossed out the window because once they are in office all they want is what is best for them! We are just ants under the feet of sick people in office and the sun is out and they are pulling out the magnifying glass to start the burning. And as we die under the light of the magnifying glass all you can hear is the laughter of our great leaders in office.
So the story is look out for yourself because you leaders in office will not and never will have your best intrest in mind. So get your house in order and prep like your life is on the line because it is on the line. The collapse is coming maybe not this week or month but it's coming soon and only the people that are ready will survive. Be a survivor!!! Not a sheep!!!!

Words To Live By!!!

"The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil Constitution, are worth defending at all hazards; and it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors: they purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood, and transmitted them to us with care and diligence. It will bring an everlasting mark of infamy on the present generation, enlightened as it is, if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or to be cheated out of them by the artifices of false and designing men."

What A World We Live In.........

If you turn on the TV for more than an hour or two you will hear or see something crazy, freaky or just right down extraordinary to say the least. This crazy world we live in is just down right sick. Look at Rep. Anthony Weiner on Monday admitted sending a lewd photo of his underwear-clad crotch to a young woman over Twitter and then lying repeatedly to protect himself and now has refused to resign. I'm sure in his mind he thinks that what he did was not that bad but if you ask me when a Congressman for a state gets on TV and tells a lie to cover up something he has done wrong then I think that brings his judgement, character and trustworthiness in to question. How in the hell do these fools in office think they are above the law and above the rules and morals of this country. Wait, I remember we don't have any morals anymore this country is gone to hell in a hand basket. Most people will not even remember this Weiner deal in two or three weeks and the few that do will just be pissed off because just as everything in Washington D.C. this will get pushed under the rug or tossed out with the old laundry. Do I care about this Anthony Weiner? No because I don't live in his state, but there is some other fool that is in office in my state and may not be as bad as Anthony Weiner or could be worse but to tell you the truth they are all the same because they are all in office for one thing and that is to advance there self. Until we the people wake up and make a change and not the damn change that Obama has given us we need real change. A good start would be to vote all of them out and start new but I'm sure the next bunch would be just as bad, so maybe what we need is the collapse just to hit. So we can get a fresh start.

Cold Wet Rain, But A Great Day At The Cannery

Got to make the trip to the LDS Cannery today with two friends and one of the friends mother and father. It was a great day for me because in less than an hour at the cannery I got 54 #10 cans of food.
12 cans of Pinto Beans
12 cans of White Wheat
12 cans of Quick Oats
6 can of White Rice
6 cans of White Flour
2 cans of Apple Slices
2 cans of Hard Red Wheat
2 cans of Black Beans
For a grand total of 54 # 10 cans of food!!!!!
And for a great price!!!!!

The whole set up is fantastic and with a few extra hands the whole process moves very fast. 8 out of the 9 cases I got were pre-packed and ready to go, the one case of mixed was just a few extras I wanted.

When you get to spend a few hours with good people it helps to make the work go by so fast and it was a great time and I look forward to going back soon. I saved a lot of money and got a big jump on my preps all in one day. Everything I got today will last for 30 years except the flour it has a shelf life of 10 years.
Fun times prepping!!!!

Get out and prep, you will thank yourself later!!!!

Grab Your Ankles And Kiss Your @!? Goodbye!!!!!

I think the last few nails are being put into the coffin of this once great country. Why do I thing this is so? Because the fools in government can keep propping up the  U.S. economy. For every stick they put under the  U.S. economy two or three other areas fall. For the last five weeks the stock market has been down, in just the last two days it lost almost 400 points. The unemployment rate is going up again and the new jobs are just not there. It's not like a year ago when they could fake the job growth by including all the census jobs that lasted about 2-3 weeks. So now they don't have that fake numbers to back them up, and they don't even have the summer job perk because No One Is Hiring!!!!
So the dollar is down and the unemployment is up with no new jobs coming open and at the same time cost of gas is up and down but the cost of food and just about everything at the store is going up, up, up and with no stop in sight. So when will the straw that broke the camels back drop? When will the hammer fall on the country? I think soon and the reason for this is because the lower and middle class is damn near to the edge of the cliff and most are over the cliff and just hanging on for dear life. The regular family and the standard group of people from the working class are just about to the edge of the cliff and all it will take is a very small push. And I'm sure there are a few bumps on the way.
Now is the time to stock up and prep the needed items for your survival. Do it now while you still can! Don't wait till the hammer drops and you are left out in the cold with no food, no water, and no hope!!!

The Sky Is Falling, It Is Time To Panic And The U.S. Economy Has Fallen And It Can’t Get Up

June 3, 2011
So many economists and financial pundits seem absolutely shocked that the U.S. economy is slowing down again. It is as if this latest wave of bad economic data has caught them completely by surprise. Now, in the mainstream media we are seeing all kinds of headlines declaring that the U.S. economy is headed for disaster. But anyone with half a brain could have seen this coming. This year alone, we have seen the worst tsunami in Japanese history, the worst U.S. tornado season in recent memory and the worst Mississippi River flooding in decades. In addition, chaos in the Middle East has pushed the price of oil up to very high levels. Of course all of those things were going to have an effect on the economy. In addition, all of the long-term trends that have been destroying the U.S. economy for decades have not been taken a breather. In fact, the truth is that all of our long-term economic problems have been accelerating. So yes, the sky is falling, it is time to panic and the U.S. economy really has fallen and it really can’t get up. It is just that everyone in the mainstream media seems to have believed that Ben Bernanke and Barack Obama would just sprinkle a bunch of fairy dust on the economy and everything would just magically get better. Well, in the real world things simply do not work that way.
Despite an unprecedented debt binge by the federal government and nightmarish money printing by the Federal Reserve, the economic downturn continues to drag on. Andrew Barber, a strategist at Waverly Advisors in Corning, New York recently told CNN the following….
“People are starting to see that this sort of malaise is not just going to go away no matter what you do.”
And “malaise” is a really good word for what we have been experiencing. For those that remember the late 1970s, what we are going through today is similar in a lot of ways.
But what is perhaps even more frightening is that 2011 is starting to look a lot like 2008 all over again.
In particular, we are starting to see some real signs of instability in the financial markets.
When Moody’s downgraded Greek debt again on Wednesday all the way down to Caa1, I was only moderately alarmed. The truth is that everyone knows Greece is a basket case so a debt downgrade wasn’t really all that surprising.
When Moody’s announced that it plans to review the U.S. government’s AAA debt rating “if there is no progress on increasing the statutory debt limit in coming weeks” that got the attention of a lot of people around the world, but it was not totally unexpected. Moody’s is telling Congress that they better raise the debt ceiling or else. A lot more pressure will be applied to Congress before this is over.
When Moody’s warned that it may downgrade the debt ratings of Bank of America, Citigroup and Wells Fargo, that really set off alarm bells for me.
Do you all remember what set off the financial panic in 2008?

Do the names “Bear Stearns” and “Lehman Brothers” ring a bell?

Well, right now there are some frightening indications that we may see more trouble at some “too big to fail” institutions.

But will there be any willingness to do more bailouts this time?

Right now the financial markets are closely mirroring their performance just prior to the financial collapse of 2008. One great example of this is these charts which were recently posted by the Financial Armageddon blog. It looks like bank stocks may once again be leading the way down.

Hopefully the financial system can hold together and we won’t have a repeat of 2008 right now, because if it happens it is going to be really messy.

But even without a “financial collapse” we already have all of the economic problems that we can handle.

Robert Brusca, the chief economist at FAO Economics, is being quoted by CNN as saying the following….

“We’ve had a poor economic recovery to begin with, and now it appears to be segueing into an end.”

At this point, U.S. consumer confidence is already lower than it was back in September 2008 when Lehman Brothers collapsed. U.S. consumers are holding on to their money more tightly these days and that is not a good sign for an economy that is so highly dependent on consumer spending.

The latest manufacturing numbers have also been very distressing. Measures of manufacturing activity all over the world are indicating that we have now entered an economic slowdown. This is also similar to what we saw a few years ago.

We should all feel really bad for anyone that is entering the workforce right now. We are in the midst of graduation season, and the only thing that our new graduates have to look forward to is an economic crisis that never seems to end.

On a recent article entitled “Global Financial Markets Tremble As Bad Economic News Continues To Pour In” a reader named Esta left the following comment….

I feel sad for yet another year of graduates entering a horrible job market. I recently read, and I think it was in the mainstream media, that only half the 2010 college grads have found jobs of any kind, only half of those have found jobs requiring a college education, and that 85 percent of all grads moved right back in with their parents. The job growth rate is so low that we keep employing fewer and fewer people as a percentage of our adult population. Why isn’t that still a recession?

What a future our college graduates have to look forward to, eh? Moving back in with your parents, a crappy job (if you can find one) and a pile of student loan debt that will crush you financially for decades.

We are always told that “more education” is the answer, but even many of our most highly educated young people can’t find jobs. In fact, it turns out that a third of last year’s law school graduates aren’t even practicing law….

The law school class of 2010 is making news for all the wrong reasons. The budding legal minds who managed to find employment last year have set a new record–only 68.4 percent of them are in jobs that require them to pass the bar exam, the lowest share since the Association for Legal Professionals began collecting data.

Now it looks like the economy is going to starting heading downhill once again.

What is that going to do to the job market?

Last year, only 45.4% of Americans had jobs. That was the lowest figure since 1983.

In some states it was even worse than that. In states like California, Arizona and Mississippi only about 37 percent of people had a job last year.

The economic news just seems to get worse and worse and worse. The American people have been relatively calm over the past several years as they have waited for the promised “economic recovery”, but what do you think is going to happen if we have another major economic downturn and unemployment spikes back up by several more percentage points?

And what in the world can our “leaders” really do to “help” the economy if we do have a repeat of 2008?

We are already running trillion dollar deficits.

The Federal Reserve is already printing money like it is going out of style.

So what would their next moves be?

Most Americans have no idea how fragile our financial system and our economy really are.

Let us hope and pray that things can hold together for as long as possible, because when the next wave of the economic collapse happens it is going to be really, really messy.

10 Reasons Why The “Economic Recovery” Is a Fraud

Paul Joseph Watson
June 2, 2011

Yesterday’s so-called “horror” show for the US economy with the release of new data illustrating how the economic “recovery” has all but ground to a halt was met with feigned astonishment and shock by the establishment media, and yet for the past two years the public has been continually deceived about the true state of the financial system.

All the hot air about an “economic recovery” has served to hide the fact that the United States is slipping back into a double-dip recession, if not a second “great depression,” as market strategist Peter Yastrow told CNBC yesterday.

1) In 2009, when the media claimed the economic “recovery” had begun, oil prices averaged $54 dollars a barrel. In the 24 months since, the cost has doubled. Americans are paying more and more to fill up at the pump with Goldman Sachs predicting that gas will hit $5 dollars a gallon by summer. This figure was already reached in Washington DC two months ago. Far from representing a “recovery” this is in fact another crippling expense that many Americans people simply cannot afford.

2) The housing market has shown no “recovery” whatsoever. The collapse in US house prices “is now greater than that suffered during the Great Depression.” Prices have plunged by 33 per cent since 2007. Home ownership is at its lowest level for 20 years.

3) The collapse in home ownership has flooded the rental market, leading to massive inflation “pushing up the cost of leases across the nation’s 38 million rented residences,” reports Bloomberg. Far from enjoying a “recovery,” US citizens lucky enough not to be stuck in underwater mortgages are instead paying through the nose for rental inflation that represents a huge chunk of the overall consumer price index.

4) Food price inflation is also savaging Americans who are being browbeaten by the word “recovery” while the cost of their groceries soars to unaffordable levels, forcing them to buy cheap unhealthy GMO crap or simply go hungry. Food prices in the US are climbing at the fastest rate since the 1970′s.

5) While Americans were being told to jump on the “recovery” bandwagon and spend more money to reinvigorate the economy, their median incomes were plummeting. Americans are getting poorer. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, median household income in the United States fell from $51,726 in 2008 to $50,221 in 2009 and has been flat since, even as the cost of living continues to rise.

6) While the Federal Reserve points to GDP growth as evidence of recovery, citing figures of $700 million in growth from 2008-2011, the government had to borrow and spend $5.1 trillion just to attain that level. “The Federal government borrowed and spent $5.1 trillion over the past four years to generate a cumulative $700 billion increase in the nation’s GDP. That means we’ve borrowed and spent $7.28 for every $1 of nominal “growth” in GDP,” writes Charles Hugh Smith.

7) While the establishment media and the government pretends that US unemployment numbers are on the decline, the real unemployment figure stands at over 22 per cent. An even more alarming figure shows that fewer than 46 per cent of Americans actually have jobs, with employment rates in California and Arizona hovering around 37 per cent.

Along with almost all paper currencies, the dollar has drastically declined in comparison to commodities like gold and silver since the so-called “recovery” began in 2009. At the bottom of the economic slump in the middle of 2009, the greenback was hovering around the $950 dollar an ounce level – it is now well above $1500 and only soaring higher. A weakening dollar reduces Americans’ buying power and makes them pay more for staple necessities like food and fuel as the cost of living skyrockets.

9) Far from staging a “recovery,” US consumer confidence is now lower than during all the financial crises or tragedies of the last several decades. From the crash of ’87, to Enron, to 9/11, to the collapse of Lehman Brothers in 2008, Americans have never been so pessimistic about the economy.

10) Of course, the only people enjoying a financial “recovery” are the Wall Street bankers and the financial terrorists who pulled the plug on the economy in the first place. Since its 2009 low of 7062, the Dow Jones Industrial Average has gained by almost 6,000 points. This means little to the average American that can barely afford to put food on the table, never mind invest in the stock market.

Sidestep - Charles Durning - The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.mp4

My little lady posted this to her FaceBook Page today.

This scene in this movie reminds me of our government officials, avoiding the question and giving us a real song and dance.
