It seems I have insulted a group of folks who are not into salvaging the necessities of life in the event of a collapse. Sorry about that, folks. And I respect your opinion but I have a lot of people to feed and lots more coming. Men and women and kids. Real honest to God people with a real need to eat. We are not talking about folks who go steal 50-some inch TV's as being the kind of folks we wish to protect. Those kind of people can participate wholeheartedly in the coming die off. I'm talking about people who will work and who will look after their brothers and sisters. I am talking about real people who have an interest in the construction of a system that will not fall again. The goody do-good idiots out there who who quote the Bible as the word of God just quote the part they like, not the whole thing. But the book I read says that God told the Israelites to SPOIL the Egyptians. They ripped them off by using false pretenses (lies) as an excuse to borrow a bunch of gold and not pay it back. (theft) This gold was later melted down to make the furniture in the Tabernacle of Skins where God spoke to the High Priest. Sorry to bum you goody two-shoes guys and gals out but that it the story. I believe it. And I don't want anyone quoting me the ten commandments when the guy who delivered them was the guy in charge of the spoiling of the Egyptians.
If a group of people were separated from the rest of humanity and one guy had a beautiful young wife, he would likely want to make a law that said committing adultery was a crime. The guy who came along with a hoard of Gold and Silver and precious jewels would want a law that said stealing a man's valuables was a crime. A man having a lot of plant seed and a herd of cattle would want a law that said taking a man's commodities was a capital crime. A fourth man who had a gun and some ammo would want the right to keep and bear arms to be untouchable. Thus the law is used to strengthen the human nature. It has nothing to do with the nature of God, it has to do with protecting humans and their stuff. Get a grip on this coming age of SALVAGE. It has happened every time a society has fallen. Do not be deluded into thinking you will revive it because you won't. God will not allow it. Go on into his new move and leave the old behind. Just a word to the wise.
I am a stubborn old SOB and will more than likely remain that way until God calls me home. I am just the way I am and that is that. Can't help it and don't care to. Such is life. I was raised most of my years by an obstinate old man who heard a voice from out of this world and not much else impresses me. If you hear a voice, let me know what it said. Other than that just read and comment. It's the way we live.
I am still disturbed by the two voices I hear in America. One voice says things are getting better and we are coming out of this financial calamity. The other voice says things are terrible and we are not going to make it financially. I am throwing in with the latter voice. I think it is true. I don't care what the politicians and the Banksters are saying, the economy is one step away from a monumental collapse. And this one will go down in the books as the big Kahuna of them all. It will be talked about among peoples for many generations. The World Financial Collapse. Our great grandchildren will study it. They will also be living in the ashes and remains of it. We will use the salvaged material of the past to build our new world. All those granite tombstones in the cemeteries will make great granaries. So will all the stupid churches. Who needs them? You can't keep God penned up in a building. It should be apparent that you keep PEOPLE penned up in buildings. It's much easier to milk their paycheck on Sunday that way. Get 'em in the big barn, er..church and get them into their stanchions, er.. pew, and get to milking them. I know a lot of you will find that distasteful but nevertheless, it is the truth. And if you don't believe what I tell you then ask God about it, if you can shake yourself away from the TV long enough to contact him. I will give you this opportunity for a while. See what he says.
I'll sign off for the morning. I hope you prosper today, and stay alive.
