I will warn you in advance that this is a raving mad rant. I am going to say some things here that may anger many of you. If you are easily offended or don't want to hear a "different" point of view I would advise you to pass on reading any further. I will NOT be making any apologies either, trolls be damned.
It has finally happened. The main stream media has finally started using the "D" word. CBS, NBC, Fox... they are all now actually using the word "depression" to describe what is going on with the US economy.
Imagine that! We are in a "depression". I have been saying this for over a year now. I have received nothing but blank stares and incredulous looks from most everyone that I have had the "gall" to actually speak with about it. So is it ok for me to state it aloud now? I mean... hey ... if the MSM says it ...well then it must be true right? It must actually be "real".
And if thats the case might I go on and say other things as well? Like the fact that the price of food in the US has increased over the last year by 20% and is expected to rise another 40% by this time next year? Or that if you still have money in the stock market you might want to consider getting the hell out and buying gold and/or silver?
Or how about this.... THERE IS NO PEAK OIL. It is an illusion that the big oil companies have sold you down the river on. Or that Big Oil runs our government? When BP can dictate what our president and Coast Guard can and cannot do in the Gulf of Mexico what else are we supposed to think? How about the fact that we now have an illegal president in the white house? Or that our 1st amendment rights were just this week rescinded in the Gulf of Mexico? Can I say that now?
The Federal Reserve is a ponzi scheme designed to take every cent that America has and redistribute it to the Big Banks and Big Oil? The United Nations wants to ditch the dollar and use some sort of Global currency. The stock market is down below 10,000 again.
That those who worked all their lives paying into the Social Security system can now just pound sand and die without any healthcare or dignity in their old age? Our taxes are expected to rise 50% over the next few months.
That if you are out of work these days it is because "they" have shipped all manufactured goods once made in the US out to freaking China and beyond? That the unemployment rate is hovering at close to 20%? Or that somehow people have begun to believe the government "owes" them a living? I could go on and on but I hope you are awake enough to realize what is going on so that I don't have to.
Things are bad and they are only getting worse every day.
LOOK PEOPLE!!!! WAKE UP!! If you are not preparing for your future then how can I help you? You see the signs, they are everywhere. Get your houses in order now while you still can. If you haven't started yet PLEASE start NOW. Stock up while you still can. Stock up on your basics. Beans, Bandaids, and Bullets. Have you started a garden yet? Have you even considered it? Stock up on seeds now before Monsanto poisions them all. Do you preserve foods? Do you know how? Do you know how to build a fire, store water, forage for wild foods? Can you cook without your electricity? Hone up on these and other skills NOW. The more you know the better off you and your loved ones will fare in the event of a SHTF senario. I personally feel like the time is growing short. I am not as prepared as I would like to be by a long shot. I don't believe any of us are, but at least I have a start on it and that is the most important thing. I still am lacking in many areas but at least I have a grasp on what is still needed. There is still time to hone your skills. Prep now like you have never prepped before. If I am wrong then what have you lost? Nothing. And you may just have acquired the knowledge to save you and your family's lives.
