Cold outside this morning. Cold as a governments love. Cold as a bureaucrats mission in life. I'm telling ya', it's cold out there. And it is going to get worse. I was reading about the mini-Ice Age this morning. It lasted from about 1400 to about 1850. And it was cold! You could walk from Brooklyn to Governors Island on the ice in the Winter. The Indians were so cold and so hungry they made peace among themselves for the common survival. New England and New York and parts of Pennsylvania lot entire crops so years. And there were a few BIG volcano eruptions that really cooled things down with their putting lots of dust in the atmosphere and shading out the sunlight. As all of this was going on we were experiencing the Dalton Minama. Not many sunspots to be seen. I would say we will have this again in the event of TEOTWAWKI. Those bombs going off will really raise the dust.
I surfed around the Internet this morning after I read the blogs. You gotta do that, you know, so you can be hip to what the media wants you to know and talk about during the day. They set the national agenda as to what we all are supposed to be paying attention to. You are supposed to know and talk about the woman in Canada who had a new section of windpipe grown from stem cells. This is because the liberals want stem cell research very strongly. Bush has opposed it from the outset and this is the chance for the libs to get their revenge. You are supposed to know and take heart in that the Pirates of Somalia have probably had their Mothership sunk by the Indian Navy. That is because they took an oil tanker from the Saudi's and the Saudi's are pissed. You should also know that Hillary Clinton is thinking about taking Obama's appointment to be the next Secretary of State. And if all of this is not enough, there is always a story about Brittany Spears and her latest confessions and revelations and her latest album. Man! You guys really have a lot of baggage to haul around this morning.
Mainly, the media is preparing you for a Carbon Tax. This is the biggest shuck ever devised. Our whole life support system on this planet is based on Carbon and now the government is wanting to tax it. Of course, the liberals want the money to go to the United Nations so they can feed the poor and stop the war by disarming everyone and make the earth one big regimented Animal Farm. The United Nations has wanted the ability to tax the people of this earth ever since it's inception. They want money! They want an Army! They want control! And they are crooked as a dog's hind leg. We will have quite a war on our hands for the next two years. The battle will be fought for control of the people of this planet. Maybe we can stop it in the Congressional election of 2010. If we can hold out for two years we might make it. I want to wish you all a lot of luck. This Obama fella has the most liberal, socialist ideals of anyone ever elected president of this country. How he managed to get elected is beyond me. But I found out more about Obama AFTER the election than before it. I had never heard his anti-coal rant before, or even heard of it. Someone kept all of this buried from the majority of us. But the man who bragged he would bankrupt coal is now leading the country and I have not seen evidence of how he intends to get rid of coal without cutting off 50% of our electricity.
I think I was correct when I produced my analysis of Americans being stupid, to a large extent. I have looked at the possibility of there being a million preppers in this country, which is one third of one percent of the populace. And a million preppers is a big crowd, to be sure, but it is not anywhere close to a majority of the people.
My friend Charles Bell is here for a few days. His wife and two beautiful daughters are here also. We have had some very interesting talks to say the least. I have given him a tour of the place and today I may show him some more. It is kinda hard to digest the valley in a couple of days. It's pretty vast. But a lot of our serious talk has been about business and making money. And that is not an easy topic these days. Twenty years ago I knew several things that would make the cash but I am afraid a lot of those opportunities are over. Things are much tighter now. Much tighter. I used to know a lot of different businesses that would make it through a tough time. Now I don't. Simple as that.
I know that the gun business used to be recession proof and all of that but with the high degree of scrutiny that comes from the fedgov it is hard to get backing for a gun store. I suppose a redneck bar would be a fairly good source of income but again, I do not know. Times are tough.
Charles just called and he is on his way here. I expect him within 10 minutes. It is good to have a dedicated prepper in the house with the wife and I. Charles is a very intelligent man and is not prepping for fun and games. He knows more about the world markets than 99.9% of the people you meet.
It is now over 4 hours since Charles has gone. I guess I took a little break there. But I have a question for you all. If you could get into business right now, what business would it be? I am looking into a return to money making and I really don't know what would be profitable anymore. I used to know the answers to questions like that but times have changed.
I'll go now and hope for the best. Stay alive.
