The so called non-lethal weaponry being developed by this country's government for use against it's own citizens is absolutely astonishing. I saw an article on Lew Rockwell about it at http://www.lewrockwell.com/orig6/ferner10.1.html. The bastards are getting ready to mess us up pretty bad. The fedgov knows what is coming and they are getting ready. Are you getting ready for them? Pittsburgh bussed in police from all over the country tor the G-20 meeting. They really spent the dollars for this little demonstration. And they had some amazing equipment. Go to the link above and read about it. Talk about 1984!
I am more and more convinced that the fedgov is wanting to have a slow slide into the morass of poverty. We citizens will have a slow, constantly hurtful, ride to the bottom. We will be programmed to run out of food and other goodies. We will be expected to be weakened and hungry. This will make us easier to rule and more apt to go along with what the government wants to do. But I despise this trick. If it is to go down, let it go right now! To hell with this slow weakening of our resources. The fedgov is fighting a battle of attrition, turning the populace into beggars. I ain't buying it. I will resist them to the bitter end and try to stay as healthy as I might. I see the need to go back to a local, calorie based economy. I can see horses becoming the trucks of the future. I can see barter being developed and strengthened in all areas. But this slow slide will stop that. It will give all of our resource to the government. The bastards WILL raise taxes. But the battle cry from our end of the pole is DON'T BE FOOLED. We have tried to earn our place in the new day and I can't see them being able to take it away from us. NOthing will change on our end. Beans, Bullets, and Band-aids will be the need and the goal. Get your non-hybrid seed and get it NOW. Get all the storage food you can find and afford, and remember that canned goods are much cheaper than freeze dried stuff.
I just saw a video of Gerald Celente on Russia Today. He is not talking about mistakes any more, he is quite simply saying it is over for the dollar. Over, done, kapoot! And this message is long in coming but it has been available for anyone who cared to listen for quite a some time. But it is here now! All those guys who make their living from their financial deals and their forecasts have been telling us it is gonna be all over and the time is at hand. We are getting rained on like crazy as I type this post. It is a very gloomy day. It accentuates the doomer message, if you catch my drift. When the dollar is no good we will still be able to spend it, at least for a while. Then it will be no good, but that may take some time. While currency is manipulated and stolen and all that happy crap, it is a convenient way to do business. We will find our place in the local economy soon. It has to happen. I would think that there will be plenty of help in the garden next year.
I have been hit with some pretty powerful personal emails and some powerful comments. Seems like the older preppers are getting ready and tell the devil to keep out of their way. By older I mean those who have been doing it for a while. Ernie and Survival Chic come to mind. I was just out on the porch talking with the Handmaiden and she is totally against getting a flu shot. I asked her what we would do if Walmart started giving away $350 worth of free food to every one who gets a flu shot. She said NO. I can just see the delivery boy coming in the door with the industrial food that America eats. He would be met by a 5' 2" red head with a butcher knife in each hand! She is NOT going to let them poison her with their vaccine. My sentiments exactly. We WILL get by with what we have and hope for a good garden next Spring. We will start talking about barter pretty soon and get some idea as to what we will use as trade goods and what our evaluation process will entail. You just never can tell what may pop up. As far as our national economy is concerned, I read an article last week that aid that American advertising through our media is aimed at the top 20% of the financial spectrum of America. They have pretty much given up on the lower 80% of us crudely financed poor folk. Shows you where we stand, huh? We just don't count any more. Your corporate economy at work. Stay alive.
