Here I am trying to write a post on this stupid machine. Maybe it will appear and maybe it won't. We shall see. The wife has gone to the store to get groceries. This is part of the American habit of getting out of the house and and going places to prove you have been actively and profitably engaged in the day. I have preps and I do not have to do this. She does not have to do it either but she does anyhow. But her car will break down one of these days and we will get down to brass tacks. We will be preppers for real when we can't go anywhere. And so will you, my friends. When you can't get out and drive around and visit the scumbag stores of America then you will be 100% preppers. God, I hope I get a chicken house built by then! A couple of them if possible. I really have a thing for country eggs in the morning. My brother in law didn't even eat breakfast until he came here but now he is addicted. He has to slam those eggs in the morning. Sho 'nuff. I managed to get on Mayberry this morning and really enjoyed what he had to say. You might check him out.
A lot of people are turning to the Interweb to try and make some money. Good luck, I say. Folks are getting poorer by the day and it might not be a good idea to go to the web to get money for your survival. But do what you can and hope for the best. I was reading about some mega-millionaire who is giving his last nineteen or so million dollar donation to the ACLU this year. He is just not going to be able to swing the money bag any more. Times are getting tough for everyone.
Obama is going to give a bail-out to Main Street. All the mom and pop businesses will be able to get a bail-out pretty soon. Hot damn! If this is public knowledge then the fix is already in. The good political donors will be getting their money first and their congress critter will already be tracking the funds down. Ain't it wonderful to live in an honest society? And you know ACORN is already counting their next load of swag. I would imagine a lot of public organizers will be dipping in to the fedgov funds to hold and keep a hand full up $100 bills. The community organizers don't produce a damn thing. They are parasites who live off of what other people produce. But they are not immune to the need to eat and keep a roof over their hears so they must have ways of making money. Their tried and true method is to get grant money from the fedgov. And good grant writers can make a pretty fancy living themselves. But these are the people who know how to get blood out of the fedgov turnip. You think teams of fedgov employees will be coming to your town to interview you and find out how much money you need? Forget about it. There will be talk of the impending bail-out and then stories will appear about the money miraculously going out to "Main Street". And to the idiots who populate this country it will be due to the all knowing fedgov knowing just who needs money and how much. I figure a lot of it will be used to pay bar tabs. And that ain't bad except for the major breweries being owned by foreigners.
So get out there and get your grant writer lined up and ready to grab your share of the loot! The grant writer will want 10% to 20 % of the amount to pay his salary. They are just like everyone else in that they need food and water and oxygen and all that fancy stuff. So if you need $100,000 to keep your business afloat you had better pad your figures to include paying your grant writer. The cover letter is the most important part. They keep it and throw the rest of the grant application away. Isn't it wonderful to live in an honest and transparent sociey?
