The news on the survival front is "stick to your investments in TANGIBLES". Things you can eat, shoot, cut up food with, skin game, seal windows, drink, and store without much fear of spoilage.
The news from the media is coming in bits and pieces. This administration is the most secretive in the history of our country. They ain't telling anything to anybody. Least of all us taxpayers and voters. Like I said, we get bits and pieces. All disjointed and strewn about with very little measure of relating the whole story. They don't want you to know the whole story. As one writer at the Daily Reckoning put it, George W. Bush lost all of his accountability toward the American public when he won the 2004 election. He is accountable no more. He is the lamest of ducks and he knows it. And he doesn't care. He will do what is expected of him by his own kind and the rest of us can go piss up a downspout. He's an in-crowd guy and he doesn't have to worry about our friendship.
Wouldn't it be hilarious if we got our "stimulous" checks and the banks would not cash them? "I fall on the floor and I'm laughing!" Thank you Simon and Garfunkle.
The wife is going to town today and I have given her the money for another 20 pounds of White Rice for our TANGIBLE collection. Can't have too many tangibles. She will buy at a Dollar Store and the price will be right. No sales tax on groceries in Indiana. Love it.
I have told her to go to Big Lots and see if they have anything to help our survival TANGIBLE collection. When she buys, she usually buys RIGHT.
We'll look for more news later. Stay alive!
