I don't have much of an idea of what I am going to write about, but here goes. I visit the corporate media and it is full of stories about the up coming election. What little I read leads me to believe that Obama is a dangerous jerk and has no business being president. He is anti-gun, pro-police state and really just an ignorant guy. His mantra is about CHANGE. What the hell is he going to change? Is our big change gonna be living in a totalitarian socialist state? I think that is the way he sees things. His background is half African and not too much related to what we are in this country. Hillary says she doe not think he can be elected. I sure do hope she is correct in her analysis. I reckon that means TWO morons can't be elected this year, Clinton and Obama. McCain, I prefer to call him McPain is limping along with his campaign. He did show up at Sturgis for the big Bikers convention and gave a speech. I think he did well up there. I do not think he is anything but a tool of the elite, as is Dubya. His path is fairly predictable. We will not do well with McPain but we know what to expect. He is from a long lived family on his mothers side and could live out a full term. His running mate will be worthy of some scrutiny.
I have some favorable replies on my posts about getting an underground shelter on your retreat land. No one seems to have it together yet but neither do I. Nothing like not running out of things to do. I like having something to dream about and scheme about. It keeps me running. The main thing is that people get the message that being underground is maybe the only sure way to stay alive in an attack against these shores. And being underground is not fool proof. It is just a good place to begin.
As the old saying goes, a journey begins with the taking of one step. And after that step is taken who the hell knows what will turn up? In getting yourself underground you will be taking the same steps that our fedgov big wigs have taken. The fat cats who just have the check written and don't bother to worry about it. So we, who wish to survive, have to pay double or more for the same benefits our public servants get for free. What's wrong with this picture? I guess the public servants think like we do, that they are the bosses and we are the servants. I reckon that they are right, as far as this day and age is concerned. But times change and so do realities. I will not be inviting them to my shelter when TEOTWAWKI comes. They will be well sheltered anyhow. But if and when they come out and start giving orders. well, we shall see what the future brings. They will need to be told that what was real when they went into their shelters is not what is real when they come out. Things change, you know. I guess they will have to go hang out with their friends the bankers and the big businessmen. Hey! They can be the first Warlords! Somebody to deal with when we come out for a breath of fresh air.
This mess we are in right now is not the end of our country, not the end of our government. This is merely a prelude to what is really cooking. This is the time of waking people up and prodding them to get ready for the REALLY tough times. I am not really too worried about SHTF right now. Who cares? I have a bit of food stored and some ammo for my shot gun and my 22. I have some tools and some extra goodies like waterproof matches and fire starters. I'm like everybody else that has half a brain, I read http://www.survivaltopics.com/ and I learn. My wife is making an herbal mixture that will provide good nutrients and can be mixed into casseroles and soups and all kinds of different foods. I don't know where she picked that one up. I will ask her right now. Hmmm. There will be a slight delay while she tries to get it together. But this is not the first time I have had to wait and I will do it. Oops. She just emailed me the URL where she got this stuff. She also sent a little note. "It is somewhere buried in those pages. Don't know where. There wasn't much besides the basic idea of the Greens Jar. HM http://www.justpeace.org/nuggetsindex.htm" Good luck to those who search.
But until the banks start failing like snowflakes in a white-out, I ain't too worried. The masses will start to rumble when the banks close. The poor are already making it so they won't be too upset. But when the money is not there or it turns absolutely worthless then I can get serious about SHTF. Then it can get to throat cutting and kneecapping time pretty easy. But do not look for that to arrive too soon. I have agreed with Dragon that the middle of this month is the time of seriousness and it may not come off as we planned. It is looking like a slower descent into hell that I figured. Oil is dropping and lower gas prices will have everyone thinking that happy days are here again. Don't fall for that bullshit either. But you better get ready for the banks to fail and the Chinese to disregard our pleas for a new loan!
That is about all I have to say this morning. Stay alive and keep planning for the future. If we do things right we will have a future!
