I've been doing some thinking lately. No! Wait! Stop laughing! I do it occasionally and contrary to popular belief , it doesn't hurt all that bad. Oh who am I kidding, it hurts alot!
When I started writing this I had no intention of going off on a rant. The best laid intentions and all that....
Like most everyone else I have been watching what is happening here on the home front. Folks, it's not looking to good. You would have to be blind not to see it. The ponzi scheme we call modern banking is finally coming to an end. It is only a matter of time before our dollar is worthless. We have a good start on it now! Our money buys less and less and the cost of living takes more and more. Poverty is on the rise. We have shipped our jobs overseas and they are not coming back.
Our civil liberties have been dismantled and stomped all over. Our food is being genetically altered to the point that it is becoming unsafe to eat. And if that isn't bad enough the price of that poisonous food is increasing daily.
People who worked their entire lives paying into Social Security are now being told that their money will be taken from them in order to pay down the debts that the government has placed on their shoulders. If that isn't bad enough it is now being called an "entitlement". As if they should somehow be ashamed to receive what is owed to them. And yes I said OWED.
The main focus of this blog has always been about self- sufficiency. About following dreams and hoping to make them realities. Prepping isn't just about making sure you have all the "cool" toys and do dad's. It is about having the things you need to live a life with as little intervention from others as you can. Being prepared for the things that come your way.
Since money for physical preps as been nearly nonexistent lately, I've been trying to follow my own advice. I've been doing a lot of reading. Learning about things that I hope will help us when we move out to "the land". I'm trying to gain more knowledge. I've been reading up on chickens and rabbits again . Making lists, trying to stay busy. I don't know how much time we have but I want to do as much as possible to be self reliant in as little time as possible.
I've been hearing alot of folks worrying about the way the world is falling apart. There may not be much time left before the proverbial S hits the Fan. All we can do is to be as ready as we can. The level of stress so many folks feel under these days is tremendous. It seems that almost everyone I talk to feels like something is about to break wide open. A finger can't be laid on anything specific, just a general feeling of unease. I personally am going to try to keep the stress to a minimum. My stressing about it sure isn't going to make anything better. As someone said "All we can do is all we can do.
