I'm in kind of a strange mood today. My leading is to tell everyone to forsake this guy Obama and get to prepping. But I have already said a lot of that message. And yet, you never know who will read your writings so you write again. Our survival effort was done by the wife today. She dried a couple pounds of Cherries down to what looked to be a baggy about the size of a pound of breakfast sausage that you get at the store. Pretty well shrunk the hell outta them. Now she has the drier loaded with Apples and Blueberries. Socking that stuff away, by God! And every little bit helps. We are not going to have much garden in this year so we are doing all we can on other fronts. More than likely we will have plenty of Walnuts and Persimmons this Fall and we can always buy fruit and vegetables in season from the Amish. But I still have all the seed Big John gave me and it will be on hand for the onset of garden time next year. You can buy stuff and dry stuff and grow and can stuff and freeze stuff and all kinds of things. But the end result is that you have food no matter what happens to the rest of the country. And that will be a good thing in the days ahead. This damn government will not tell us the truth of what is going on and a lot of people will not have enough food to make it. And I know that is a funny damn thing to say about America the bountiful, cause she has always produced whatever was needed. But I do not see her producing like she did for a long, long time, if ever. And for those of you who study economics and the politics of the world, you know exactly what I am talking about. It's going down, folks. About the only thing that will function will be the big war machines. They will get all the fuel they need to the exception of the rest of us. They will fight each other and that will cause such human misery, here as well as other places, as to cause a complete upheaval to what we have known and loved. Gather you a Clan and get ready for the big dance because it is damn well coming!
I hate to be a Prophet of Doom but with the way things are now it is a hopeless task to be anything else. My inclination is to look for life and the living thereof. Keeps me in a much better frame of mind. My problem is that I don't see any thing to do but PREPARE! And that is about it. If you have your head into the hopes of this world you have your head up your ass. And that is crude but it gets the point across. It is going down folks and there ain't anything anybody can do about it. Get used to making on the tough because that is what I see. Get out of town and into the countryside. Get some building built and some fields under cultivation. Get your garden in, in due season. Get your Clan in there and get them to building homes and a big dining hall. You won't want to have all your land cleared because the woods will afford you fuel and fuel is nice, even a primitive time and setting. You can also use certain trees for building log cabins. The old Tulip Poplar comes to mind. But get your ground, your water, and your home in order. Without shelter and water you ain't got much.
At this point your are ready to start stocking your new lifestyle. Stocking it with the things you will need to make a year or so, when the trouble hits. Enough to make it two or three years might be better. Just make damn sure you do the best you can. Buy your canned goods and buy them quick. Monsanto is making deals all over the place to grow Frankenfood for this country. They just made a deal with Dole to start producing seed for Broccoli and Cauliflower and other things. Your food supply is getting fooled with and your gotta figure out how to escape the evil bastards. The best way is to have a field surrounded thick woods. That will keep their sick pollen from coming in and tainting your seed. And that method is not always possible but do the best you can. That is why the bigger your block of land is the more you have going for you to keep out the bad nasties manufactured by the ghouls. Those people are my enemies. I pledge to fight them all of my days. Sugar is also a Monsanto area now. All the sugar beet seed is now from Monsanto. Don't that just warm our heart? I don't know who those people are, those folks from Monsanto, but I think I smell a rat with a name like Rothschild. They are getting ready to take over the produce industry in India and use it to put the European food producers out of business. Then the prices will go up. When you have blocks of billions of people to feed, then anything like a monopoly will be worth more than gold. The point I am trying to get across, in my own confusing way, is for you to be very careful what you buy for storage. If you can can your own stuff from non-hybrid seed then you are doing as well as can be done. And I will say this: If you are in a position where you absolutely have to buy whatever is on the market to live, then you do it. We make no suicide pact on storage food or anything else. While there is still a market and you can still pick and choose what you will buy, then buy the best you can as far as what kind of seed was used. If push comes to shove then buy what you can. Hungry men, women and children are not pleasant to be around. I know I wouldn't be pleasant under those circumstances.
