Thinking about a platform on which to build your new world lifestyle. Actually I am thinking about the rules and precepts you will use to make your way forward from the wreck of this nation. A fairly important subject for all thinkers.
I think, for the sake of brevity, that you could be led to fashion your code of civic conduct by basing it on the same principles as you used to prepare for the calamity. Preppers have a non-reputation for their philosophy. And that philosophy is based on love. Love of themselves. Love of their families. Love of their friends and fellow Clan members. Outsiders of the survival movement see preppers as people in fear, or people in rejection of society, or social malcontents without many redeeming qualities. And nothing could be further from the truth in most cases. We love our mates and our kids and other relatives. We try to get them to join with us in our quest to survive the calamity. Most don't, but that doesn't mean we didn't try. And generally tried on numerous occasions. More on this later.
I got a heads up from Jim Haddix concerning an article in the Los Angeles Times. Indiana actually got mentioned in the Times. It is because our legislature cannot make up it's mind on the budget. We have money! 1.3 billion dollars in a 'rainy day fund.' But Indianapolis wants us to give them the money to pay for all the sports venues they have gone into debt for. The meter is running right now and the fee is looking like 47 million dollars. Lots of legislators do not want to pay for this bill that Indy has run up.Can't say as I blame them.
The news is mostly just a bunch of hot air these days, since the government does not want to tell us what is going on but would rather feed us propaganda a and lies. You have to read the financial blogs to get an inkling of the truth. Just do not forget that the machine is breaking down. Do not put your faith and your life in the hands of this economy. Get out while you can.
Short post today. Hope you have a good day and stay alive.
