GET READY

We are getting ready here in my household. Stored food and foraged food and guns and ammo and medical supplies and just all sorts of things. We even bought a supply of FIRESTEEL from Survival Topics. I don't know how to use one of the damn things but I figure I can get the knack of it.

One of our favorite assets is our non-hybrid seed for our garden. This is getting back to our good-old-used-to-be as far as food production is concerned. With this kind of crop you can save some of the seed and grow next years crop. This is how it is done, just in case you haven't noticed. I get my garden seed from Big John Lipscomb. His company name is Survivalist Seeds.Com. He is a survivalist from the word go. He is anti-New World Order and pro-Freedom. Don't put him down until you have tried him. I think he is a pretty good man and can be trusted. But those seeds will be for the saving of our asses when the shit goes down. And you don't have to have non-hybrid seed to get a crop and eat next Fall and Winter and Spring. But if you want to plant a garden after that you might look into non-hybrid. Most seed you will buy in stores around your part of the world will be hybrid and the will not produce good seed for the next year. The concept of this blog is Staying Alive and eating every day is a good way to maintain that course. There is no confirmation that any political body in the country is interested in feeding mine and yours should the SHTF. Remember that we have several pieces of legislation concerning the Continuity of Government but we have no legislation for any continuity of rednecks. And there is an awful lot of discord in our country and it looks like there is going to be an awful lot of violence to go with it.

There are two trains of thought on violence in the USA this year. One thought it that May and June will be times of heavy violence. Another thought is that August and September will be times of heavy violence. The GOP USA people say that the 20,000 troops we were bringing home to make sure order was kept in this country is now changed to 80,000 and things will be serious. The word is that these troops are in training in Georgia right now. There is not supposed to be any troops out in the countryside but rather in the cities and main highways. I am not going to bitch and scream about being left out. We will adapt and take care of ourselves right here at home in the valley. And God help who comes to disturb us and our peace.

There may be a disturbance coming in the form of some type of gun ban and another ban on growing your own food in your own garden. I cannot believe there is a move afoot to stop the growing of home gardens. But it is true. People like Monsanto are trying to take our initiative away from us and take all authority for growing food unto themselves. Both of these disturbances need to be instantly removed from our lives in a most crude and base manner. Any being that attempts to weaken our personal defense or detract from our ability to feed ourselves is committing a crime against humanity and deserves a vigorous reproach. Can you understand "vigorous reproach"? We are not talking about something written in the editorial section of the newspaper but rather a baseball bat between the eyes!

Dark thoughts go through my mind concerning the situation we will face if the shit hits the fan. We have been all but told that we will not be bothered by the force of government, or FOG, but rather we will be ignored as long as we don't come to town or attempt to pass through check points they will establish in order to maintain order and authority among the people. In other words, as long as you can live without them, you may live without them. And they are saying, if you can believe them, that they will leave us alone if we don't get too rowdy or start attacking them. Those kind of agreements never last. They are directly opposed to each other. What I want to know is where is it leading?

We will get back to this subject pretty soon. Get preps. Get guns. Get a revolution.

I am truly hoping they will just ignore us country folk! Leave me alone and I will leave them alone, but WHOA to those that come up that drive with ulterior motives dancing in their heads!!

Michael, I never heard until now that NORTHCOM was upping the ante from 20,000 troops to 80,000 troops. I knew it would happen though. They use the old "foot in the door" technique. Do you know where I could find that news item about the 80,000 troops? I feel that the exec. will utilize Blackwater for covert ops here at home. I believe those numbers will be classified, as to how many mercenaries are being used on the streets of America.

Luckily I can still get the Heirloom eeds from my local Ace hardware where I used to work.

In fact, the last ones I bought were .99 a pack! Guess I should go and get some more...

Ya know - I thought the previous eight years under the Bush Reich was bad. But Lord in heaven, have things gotten so much worse in just three months.

I like the guy over at Survivalist Seeds. I have some of his stuff stored in my preps. A good man, he is...

Michael, not to jump off subject but the firesteel is one of the best tools in my pack, Ive tried the magnesium firestick but in even the smallest wind its hard to keep your pile of magnesium from blowing away. The other item for fire that I found that helps immensely; dryer lint, that and some dried birch or aspen bark the lint goes up in flames quickly with the firesteel thus starting your fire. A Tried and tested success while camping in Colorado last year.

So many folks, even in the survival/prepper community, are still in denial. They see the writing on the wall, but refuse to read it, especially city folks. The slightest hint of full scale SHTF will send me packin' to the country..... Hopefully I can get out of here BEFORE the need to bug out arises....
