It is Monday morning and I have just looked at Lew Rockwell dot Com. Three gun articles. That is a high percentage of reading for LRC to have up for just one day. Is Lew trying to tell us something? Is something gnawing at his psyche that he feels to tell us to get guns? And by us I do not mean preppers but I mean the normal people who read LRC. Lew is telling them in his own way to get ready. And they had better pay attention! I don't give much credence to the guy who says if you can only have one gun you ought to have a high capacity 9mm semi automatic pistol. I think that advice sucks. Big time. It is the advice of someone who is not out of town. It is the advice of someone who is not planning on GETTING out of town. It is the advice of someone who is going to stay in town during the bad times. But I guess if you can't get out of town, then if you stay the 9mm might be a good idea. Me, I would rather be walking down the road carrying my 12 gauge pump. No one will bother me or be alarmed in the slightest. Just part of farm life, you know. And you let a raider come in here and I will show you another part of farm life. It will be time for a dirt nap. And 00 Buck will get the job done and the raider put to bed. I do not fear looters and raiders where I live. Too many places to hide. Too many places to ambush. We are the Viet Cong here. It's our home and we know the way around. It is a comforting thing.
Sunday night meeting was pretty damn good, if you ask me. One man gave a good long talk that I enjoyed very much. In his talk he said that God was a scientist. He knows everything about all the planetary systems and the black holes and all that stuff. And his scientific power reaches down to viruses and germs and even subatomic particles. There is just nothing he does not know. And he is our Father and he is looking out for us and he has all the power in creation to get the job done. That will let a guy sleep soundly at night. To hell with the problems of the world. We can't stop any of it anyhow so let God handle the mess. He is very much up to the task. " I wound and I heal. I kill and I make alive. I life up my arm to heaven and say I LIVE FOREVER." Now that is the ultimate stud of creation. The SUPREME guy. And he likes us. And you can tell our enemies about that. Some preppers are all up in arms about fearing this and fearing that and I think a lot of it is a waste of time. We have our food, our guns and ammo, our medical stuff and our water, so what the hell? We can only do so much and God knows it. So be at peace. The scripture says, "After having done all, stand." I can go along with that. And sleep well at night too.
The weather is warm and mild. The bugs and flies are having a great time. I am a little bummed out by that but I can live through it. The wife is getting her car fixed today and that is a great idea. I don't know where she got the money and I am not going to ask her. She has her methods. I know some of them but sometimes it is best not to comment. She does well. But even her efficiency is not enough to get rid of these damn beetles. Old man Winter will have to take care of them. I will not miss them.
Nothing specific on the outcome of the G-20 meeting except to say that currency distortions due to trade imbalances will be under observation. But I take that to mean that the dollar will get hit on a daily basis. It is getting hit today, even getting close to 74 cent territory as Gold and stocks keep going up. The stocks are manipulated and the Gold has now broken free of price control. I don't think the US government has the clout to manipulate the Gold market any more. It would cost too much and the over night buying and selling would just erase what the fedgov managed to accomplish.
I am considering what it means to be a citizen of the world. It is a weighty subject. But we all have to get to that place sooner or later. You can't imprison a man for leaving a place of poverty and drought and going somewhere that he could work and feed his family. That would be a crime. But the gangbangers and the dope dealers must stay away. They make it messed up for everybody. We will get into this in another post. Stay alive.
