Noting quite like being ready. No matter what happens in the future, a bunch of us are going to face events with some degree of confidence. And that is a wonderful thing. Having friends and family close by to aid in distress and help in an emergency is a great feeling. If you have what it takes to survive on a natural level then you are way ahead in the game. You gotta have shelter, and water. Defensive tools such as guns and knives and ammo and axes are very nice also. Just the raising of an axe will cause another person to back off. Shotguns are nice too. Then you have to have some grub, that good old necessity we call food. You can go without it for a while but it won't be fun. But I would say that a lot of us will lose a bunch of extra weight in the coming years. Medical is highly important. Get all the medications you can afford. The over the counter stuff is great. Simple, inexpensive stuff like Calamine Lotion will be invaluable. All your normal headache and pain medicines will probably serve you very well. Female paraphernalia will be quite valuable. The lack of it will cause consternation from coast to coast. There will be little peace in the camp until this need is addressed. But everything will be addressed because that is what we are about. Our prime stance is that of being a Brother Keeper, as opposed to being a Brother Killer. We know what living is all about. We are comfortable with that knowledge. We accept that responsibility. Cause, hey, we are all in this together.
The wife just got home from the store and she brought in her latest purchased contributions to our stash. She brought me a jar of Vitamin D3 for the supposed flu pandemic this Fall. It is supposed to really strengthen your immune system and help your body fight off bad nasties. I'll take it, believe me. Everything I read says to take Vitamin D starting in the Fall. Beats the hell out of taking those goddamn flu vaccines that don't work anyhow. She also got us a big batch of soap. Bath soap and some Dial and one of my favorites, Lava. We will be clean around here this Fall. I still have my unopened half gallon of anti-bacterial hand soap that I bought last year. A main line of defense in fighting the flu. Keep your hands clan and wear a face mask around suspected or known people who are infected with the flu. We will also be taking measured doses of our homemade Sambucol. And that should be all we will need. Keep your hands clan and say away from infected people as much as possible. If the flu breaks out in your childs school I do not know what to tell you. But if my kids were young I would pull their asses out of school and to hell with the first semester. It won't matter one damn bit 30 years from now if they miss a semester. But it might matter if they have to go to the local "Infectarium" with a bunch of kids whose parents don't know their ass from a hole in the ground about taking care of their children.
I just got on to howestreet.com and listened to their interview of Gerald Celente. It was music to my ears. He talked about a third political party here in America and starting with Peter Schiff running against Chris Dodd for Senator from Connecticut. That should give Obama a good kick in the ass! There was mention of eating locally grown food and not taking flu vaccine. It sounded like freedom to me! They are calling their movement the Second American Revolution. It would be nice to have it come from the ballot box rather than from a cartridge box. I'm gonna listen to these guys and see what they have to say. If we get any local candidates I will post up signs for them along our roads. I don't have the money to become a big campaign donor but I can put up some signs! We'll get Ron Paul out there to campaign for them and it will be a great time. We'll have them offer Ron Paul the post of Secretary of State, or maybe Secretary of the Treasury. A little class for a change!
