Gold, Silver And Your Survival.......


I see that gold and silver are doing very well lately. I own a little silver but I sold off all my gold when it hit $1000 an oz and I have sold a good bit of my silver here lately and used the money to buy more preps. I think having silver and gold is a good thing and if you have some hold on to it. The silver I had I bought years ago when it was a hell of a lot lower than $18 an oz. I still have a good bit of silver but here at the end of the road. I got to thinking and for me to think is not an easy thing to do. But I was thinking that as nice as silver is I would much rather have 6 more months of food now, so I sold some of the silver and bought more food. Now I'm not telling people to drop everything and sell there silver as I have done. What I'm telling you is to think of what you want. I rethink my plan of survival from time to time and I thought that at this time it would be better for me to sell a little and buy more food. You may think differently than I do, and that's good. We never should all think alike, because being and doing things different makes life way more interesting. I don't think I will sell anymore of my silver and I will still build on my preps as much as I can in the last days we have before the collapse. And I think the collapse is very close now. Our time is very short so get to prepping and keep your eye's open, because evil is just over the hill and night is approaching.
Stand strong and be ready to fight for what is yours and survive.

Impending Economic Collapse of the USA


I see even in the main stream news the talk of the dollar and it's collapse. I read on-line of how the dollar is dropping, and gold and silver is going up. The rest of the world is ready to toss the dollar in the fire. But at home we are playing around like this is just another day in this country. Our national debt (total accumulated debt) is over $12,000,000,000,000 this is the sum of all the annual deficits less any surpluses. This is one-year's shortfall so far. This shortfall must be made up by borrowing. How long do people think this can keep up? How long do we have before the big boom? I see the collapse coming very soon, our time is getting very short. The time we have left you need to be getting ready. Stock up on food NOW!!! If you are already stocking then stock more ASAP. Most of the country will never see this coming and by the time it hits them it will be to late for them. The sheeple will freak out and run crazy. So get you goods now and be ready for the collapse, because I don't care what the boob tube tells you it's coming and it's coming soon. Remember that evil is just over the hill and night is coming.

Happy Thanksgiving


It's that time of the year again, it's Thanksgiving. A time to give thanks for all that we have, and a time to gather your family around you and enjoy a great meal. I still have great memories of friends and family at this great time of the year. I think even after the big collapse this day will still hold great meaning to many people. I still see people getting together for food and good times. Plus after the collapse I see people gathering for news and info from around the area. I think meals of thanksgiving will be a time for people to gather and let down there hair. I know the road that lays before us is long and hard, and the things we will have to endure will be very bad. But we will have times where we can gather and talk and eat a good meal. If we still can't do the fun things from time to time why would we try to survive?
May God Bless You And Your Family
Happy Thanksgiving

Trying New Things With My Food Prep's


I use my food saver all the time. I buy big blocks of cheese and cut it down to small blocks and freeze the extra. I bag up rice, grits, beans and many other items with the food saver to pack into 5 gallon buckets. I just bagged up a box of Mac & Cheese with the powdered cheese bag. I don't know how well this will keep, but I do want to try it out and see. I do know that years ago I found a box of Kraft Mac&Cheese that was almost a year out of date and I said to myself,"try it to see if it's still good". So I did and it was good the cheese and the noodles were just fine. So my thinking is if I can get the air off both the bag of cheese powder and the noodles it will last way longer than the 24 month expiration date. I know that compounds or mixes of more that one item over time will break down, like Bisquick even if put into a food saver bag over time the compounds of the mix start to have a chemical reaction and break down. I have read on-line about pancake mix in food saver bags popping after a year or more because of the chemical reaction. I'm not sure about the cheese powder in the Mac&Cheese, because it comes in a foil lined package and has a shelve life of 24 months. If any of you have tried this please post a comment and let me know how it works. I am always trying new things to see if they work. So if you have an idea you want to share with me just post it and I will try it out. I have learned great tricks and tips from other survivalist. I plan to learn much more over the years to come. Keep your eye's open and your ear to the ground, because evil is just over the hill and night is coming.

Help The Sheeple Wake Up!!!!

We all need to help wake up some of the sheeple. I myself have not been talking to very many people about the coming collapse, because I was tired of the stone wall I would run into every time I would bring up the subject. But I think I need to step it up and try to help some of the dead heads out there. I think with some of the crazy stuff uncle sugar is pulling on all of us it will be a little bit easier to wake them up. I know that some of them will never wake up and never see the light till the train is just about to hit them. But I am going to try again to help the few that will allow me to help them. I know our time is short and everyday we waste doing nothing is a day gone forever. I will try to plant the seeds of preparedness in as many people as I can. I do have one person at works that thinks like me. I talk with her every time I see her, and she is working to better herself and her family with supplies. I wish everyone would think like this and get their families stocked up on food, water, medical supplies and household items for the coming collapse. I just don't understand why people will buy car, boat, house, life and medical insurance to be ready for any unseen trouble, but if you mention the words EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS, SURVIVAL OR SURVIVALIST; then you have become a instant nut or crazy person. I stock up because I want the insurance of survival after a collapse and I would like to do it with as little trouble as I can get away with.

I am going to start talking with the sheeple again and I'm not sure if I will do any good or not, but I'm going to give it one more try till I get sick of it again. I think I get a little crazy when I can't talk to people about survival. I have been quiet for weeks now and need to try to help again. In a week or two I will be posting how I'm tired of the stone wall again.
As for you people who do prep I ask you to step up your work because it looks bad. I still think I am going to wake up one day soon to TEOTWAWKI. Our time is short.

Survival Skills #37 How to Make an solar-powered Oven



You can easily make an oven from a few simple supplies, which you may already have around the house. This oven is solar-powered, so it can save on energy costs. A solar oven will come in handy for camping or for hot summer days when you want to bake without heating up the kitchen. What's more, almost anything that you bake in a conventional oven can be baked in this homemade solar oven.


Step 1
Find two cardboard boxes of different sizes. The larger box should be at least ½ inch wider than the smaller box on all sides. The smaller box needs to be at least 15 inches by 15 inches. Glue aluminum foil to the inside of each box.
Step 2
Lay several layers of newspaper in the bottom of the larger box. Cut off the top flaps or fold them down inside the boxes. Place the smaller box inside the larger box and stuff crumpled newspaper between the two boxes to serve as insulation.
Step 3
Make a solar reflector. Cut a piece of cardboard two inches wider than the top side of the larger box. Cover the reflector with aluminum foil, gluing it on in smooth strips to cover the cardboard completely. Use several thicknesses of tape as a hinge to attach the reflector to one side of the outer box.
Step 4
Paint the outside of the box oven with a nontoxic glossy black paint to help it absorb heat. Cover the bottom of the inner box with black construction paper.
Step 5
Use dark-colored, non-reflective baking dishes to bake your food in the oven. You can make biscuits, cookies, cakes, breads, or anything else you can think of in this oven. You can even place a pot of stew or a casserole to cook in the oven. Place the baking dish in the center of the inner box. Depending on the amount of sunlight in the area, foods can take two to three times longer to cook than when using a conventional oven, so start early in the day.
Step 6
Place the oven in full sun and position the reflector so the sun is shining directly on it. Check every few hours to be sure the reflector remains facing the sun.
Step 7
Spread plastic wrap over the top of the box and tape it down securely, leaving it in place until the food is done.


Things You'll Need:
Two cardboard boxes
Thick aluminum foil
White glue
Newspaper
Extra piece of cardboard
Masking tape
Glossy black paint
Black construction paper
Plastic wrap

Short Post Today

Well the senate vote on health care is Saturday night, just like last time on the weekend and at night. They lone to rip us off under the cover of darkness. I think just as before this will pass and it will become the way it is. I heard the about 65% of the country doesn't want this health care bill to pass, but that doesn't matter they know what's best for us. We all just need to sit down and shut up. Remember if you don't like the health care bill you are a racist, and if you go to the Tea Parties you are a racist, or if you make a stand against anything that Obama wants or has to say that makes you a racist. I think it's very clear that they want us to be mindless fools and do what they say, and never, never have our own voice. Because if you have your own voice and you can think for yourself you must be a right wing extremist and be a racist to. I work in health care and I see the care that people get everyday and I know they get great care. I don't know why we are trying to redo something that only needs to be fixed. Health care is not perfect, but don't tear it down and start new lets fix what needs to be fixed and keep on going. We have the best health care of any country of the world. But after this senate vote and a win we will not be the same country as before and if we don't make a stand now we will lose this great country, because Obama is dead set to tear down this country and build a new one. And I don't want to see the new one.
People get yourself ready and stock up on food, water and medical supplies, because our time is short. Evil is just over the hill and night is coming.

Survival Skills #36 Annual Generator Maintenance



When the power goes out, a generator is only good if it can perform. That performance and efficiency depends on the size of the unit and how well it is maintained. A properly maintained generator will provide its power rating when running. A poorly maintained generator may only start the first time and then never run again.


Clean and Dry
The electricity produced by a generator is a godsend during a power outage, but it can be extremely hazardous when the generator itself is allowed to get wet and dirty. Conditions such as these create corrosion on the parts that conduct electricity. To prevent this, wipe down the generator after each use. Remove all built-up dirt and mud. Dry the generator by wiping it with a clean rag. Blow out ventilation cooling fins with compressed air, if available. Store the generator in a clean, dry and secure area. Inspect all electrical connections for signs of corrosion, which will appear as a white to greenish powder on the connections. Clean all corrosion and treat the connectors with an anti-corrosion inhibitor available from most hardware and home stores.

Oil and Filters
Change the oil and the accompanying filters as recommend by the manufacturer. Replace these components yearly, even if the generator has sat for a long period of time. Check the spark plug; clean the tip and gap. Keep extra oil, filters and spark plugs on hand. Test-run the generator at least twice a year to keep all internal parts lubricated and the fuel moving through the system. Add fuel stabilizer if the generator is only used for emergency backup power during outages. Gasoline will turn sour after a certain amount of time, typically six to nine months, if left untreated.

Mechanical
Inspect all bolts on the unit after the generator has cooled down from use. Vibration will loosen even the tightest of bolts over time. Keep a small tool kit that contains all the sockets or wrenches needed for servicing the unit. Include in the tool kit a screwdriver, pliers and a roll of electrical tape. Extension cords rated for the power of the generator should also be kept on hand. Inspect these electrical cords as part of a yearly maintenance routine, as rodents and other vermin may use the insulation as a chewing device.

Plan a scheduled maintenance twice a year; schedule the service time for predicted down times of the generator. Chances are the unit is only operated during winter and summer storms, so set dates for maintenance like the first day of spring and the first day of fall. Mark these times on the calendar as a reminder. Keep a record of the maintenance performed with the generator, too, so you can refer back to this record if a problem arises during operation. The goal of any equipment maintenance is to ensure the machine runs when it's needed.

Keep extra parts on hand for that 3am mishap where you brake something that you don’t have on hand and need for the generator to work and plan for needed items.

Eugenics And The Plan For World Control


Study of human improvement by genetic means. The first thorough exposition of eugenics was made by Francis Galton, who in Hereditary Genius (1869) proposed that a system of arranged marriages between men of distinction and women of wealth would eventually produce a gifted race. The American Eugenics Society, founded in 1926, supported Galton's theories. U.S. eugenicists also supported restriction on immigration from nations with "inferior" stock, such as Italy, Greece, and countries of eastern Europe, and argued for the sterilization of insane, retarded, and epileptic citizens. Sterilization laws were passed in more than half the states, and isolated instances of involuntary sterilization continued into the 1970s. The assumptions of eugenicists came under sharp criticism beginning in the 1930s and were discredited after the German Nazis used eugenics to support the extermination of Jews, blacks, and homosexuals.

Today I went to yahoo and saw this:

UN: Fight climate change with free condoms

By MARIA CHENG, AP Medical Writer Maria Cheng, Ap Medical Writer

(LONDON – The battle against global warming could be helped if the world slowed population growth by making free condoms and family planning advice more widely available, the U.N. Population Fund said Wednesday.

The agency did not recommend countries set limits on how many children people should have, but said: "Women with access to reproductive health services ... have lower fertility rates that contribute to slower growth in greenhouse gas emissions."

"As the growth of population, economies and consumption outpaces the Earth's capacity to adjust, climate change could become much more extreme and conceivably catastrophic," the report said.)

Eugenics Quotes

"Men are generally more careful of the breed of their horses and dogs than of their children."
- William Penn. Some fruits of solitude, in reflections and maxims relating to the conduct of human life. 1693

"It does not, however, seem impossible that by an attention to breed, a certain degree of improvement, similar to that among animals, might take place among men. Whether intellect could be communicated may be a matter of doubt: but size, strength, beauty, complexion, and perhaps even longevity are in a degree transmissible… As the human race could not be improved in this way, without condemning all the bad specimens to celibacy, it is not probable, that an attention to breed should ever become general."
- Thomas R. Malthus. An Essay on Population. 1798

"Eugenics is the study of the agencies under social control that may improve or impair the racial qualities of future generations either physically or mentally."
– Francis Galton, first cousin and associate of Charles Darwin, circa 1883

"What nature does blindly, slowly and ruthlessly, man may do providently, quickly, and kindly. As it lies within his power, so it becomes his duty to work in that direction."
– Sir Francis Galton (1905)

"Galton’s eccentric, sceptical, observing, flashing, cavalry-leader type of mind led him eventually to become the founder of the most important, significant and, I would add, genuine branch of sociology which exists, namely eugenics."
-
John Maynard Keynes. Eugenics Review. 1946

"Natural selection must be replaced by eugenical artificial selection. This idea constitutes the sound core of eugenics, the applied science of human betterment."
- Theodosius Dobzhansky. Heredity and the Nature of Man. 1964

"…impregnation will be regarded in an entirely different manner, more in the light of a surgical operation, so that it will be thought not ladylike to have it performed in the natural manner."
-
Bertrand Russell. The Scientific Outlook. 1972

"There is no permanent status quo in nature; all is the process of adjustment and readjustment, or else eventual failure. But man is the first being yet evolved on earth which has the power to note this changefulness, and, if he will, to turn it to his own advantage, to work out genetic methods, eugenic ideas, yes, to invent new characteristics, organs, and biological systems that will work out to further the interests, the happiness, the glory of the God-like being whose meager foreshadowing we the present ailing creatures are."
- Herrman J. Muller, 1935 (an associate of Sir Julian Huxley)

"The first century or two of the new millennium will almost certainly be a golden age for Eugenics. Through application of new genetic knowledge and reproductive technologies…the major change will be to mankind itself…Ttechniques…such as…genetic manipulations are not yet efficient enough to be unquestionably suitable in therapeutic and eugenic application for humans. But with the pace of research it is surely only a matter of time, and a short time at that."
- Glayde Whitney, Reproduction Technology for a New Eugenics, paper for The Galton Institute conference Man and Society in the New Millennium, September 1999

"There is NO DENYING the natural world would be a better place without people – ALL people! Not a selective bunch. Get it straight."
-
Rebecca Calisi, student of Eric Pianka

"In order to stabilize world population, we must eliminate 350,000 people per day. It is a horrible thing to say, but it is just as bad not to say it."
- Jacques Cousteau, 1991 UNESCO courier

The NWO has a plan for us and have been running the play book for many years. And as good little sheeple we sit and don't say a thing. When will we stand up and make our voice be heard. As long as we just sit and do nothing the NWO will keep pushing there sick plans on us. And if you sit long enough you will find yourself in a FEMA camp.
People wake up and make a stand; we all need to make our mark in the sand and stand up to the NWO!

The evil is just over the hill and night is coming, so get ready and get ready now.

Survival Skills #35 How to make an Small Urban Survival Tin/Kit



This is a small urban kit for the workers that have to make a trip into the city or big town and can’t take there BOB. Or this is a great little day hike kit.

Step 1
First, get your Altoid’s tin, (make sure it's cleaned out), and then lay all of your stuff out on a large flat surface. This is so you can see what you have, how you would use it, and to make it easier when it comes to packing it.

Step 2
Take your duct tape and wrap it around the toothpick, until you have an amount you are comfortable with (I'd say about 5' or so), but that can still fit in your tin comfortable. Next snap off both ends of your toothpick that stick out. (If you want to skip this, several companies sell pre-wrapped duct tape like this, go to any backpacking store, like R.E.I., or save the money and do it yourself!)

Step 3
Put the four Aleve, two Dayquil, and utility razor in one baggie, then fold it up tightly. Next, do the same with the matchbook.

Step 4
Start packing your Altoid tin, flat stuff first. The money, needle and thread, band-aids, paperclip, and antiseptic hand wipe are all pretty flat, so try them first.

Step 5
Next, try to arrange the other items (minus the rubber bands), as best you can, remembering that the LED flashlight will come on if pushed down when the lid closes, so it might take a few times, but it will all fit.

Step 6
Add the fish hooks, line and weights. If you have room in the tin add a small cork for a floater.

Step 7
If you have room left, put in the rubber bands. Take another small piece of duct tape and put it on the lid to close it. The duct tape can be reused until it loses it's stickiness, and then you still have more in the kit! If you didn't have room left for the rubber bands, put them around the outside.

Step 8
Use a small mag-light the AA size with the 550 Para cord wrapped around the flashlight, this will not fit into the kit but with a flashlight holder for your belt the light and the tin kit will go well together. And May I add a good Leatherman to the mix this way you a flashlight and a Leatherman on your belt and a survival tin and flashlight in your pocket, this combo makes a great little urban survival kit.

Things You'll Need:
Altoid’s tin or small plastic box
needle with thread wrapped around it
small LED flashlight
2-4 safety pins (recommended different sizes)
$10 Bill and two $5 dollar bills
4 quarters and 4 dimes
antiseptic hand wipe
2 sticks of gum
matchbook
small bic lighter
utility razor with brown paper still wrapped around it
2 Dayquils
4 Aleve or Ibuprofen
2-4 normal band-aids
2 butterfly band-aids
duct tape
toothpicks
2-3 foil packet of triple antibiotic ointment
Fish hook with 25 feet of line and two lead weights
2 small zip-lock baggies barely big enough to fit a matchbook in
paperclip
2 or 3 rubber bands
Small Mag-light (AA Size)
10-15 Yards of 550 Para-cord
Small Leatherman Knife Combo

Survival Skills # 34 How to Make a Winter Survival Kit for a Car



Though rare, there are certain times a winter survival kit for your car will come in handy. People die every year in their automobiles from exposure to the elements during harsh weather conditions. It takes mere minutes for the warmth of a car to plunge into deadly below zero temperatures in many parts of the country. There is a basic survival kit that takes up very little space in your car and may someday save your life and those who may be with you. The items can fit into a small plastic tote and fit nice in your trunk, you’ll never know it’s there till you need it.

Step 1
Include items in your survival kit which can heat up the car. To warm up a car that has died by the side of the road in a blizzard, certain items are proven to be effective. Have a UCO Original Candle Lantern, with extra candles. Make sure to have a window open just a little for oxygen to get into the car. And don’t forget the matches and 2-3 bic lighters.

Step 2
Pack candles. Another way to warm up the interior of a car in freezing weather is with a medium candle placed in a metal coffee can. Make sure you crack a window. The warmth of one candle can raise the temperature enough to keep you alive. Two candles in two cans are even better. You can store two coffee cans with toilet paper in each one and have the lid for both. That way you have a make shift bathroom if needed. Of course the extra jackets, blankets lots of blankets (4-8 of them), hats, gloves, socks, and long underwear that you packed in your winter survival kit will help also. Plus put the pocket hand warmers in your kit after the hunting season you can find them for 50-75% off, so stock up and pack them in your car kit.

Step 3
Have a way to signal someone for help from the car. A cell phone will work great if you have a useful signal. A flashlight with batteries can be used to signal in the dark and aid in reading car manuals. You must have some flares in your kit they work very well for many things. I would have a crank radio and crank flashlight in your kit.

Step 4
Include food and water in your survival kit. This is important to keep up your energy if you have to remain with your vehicle over a prolonged period. This does happen in remote places in severe weather. Nuts, dried fruit and candy bars will provide nutrition and energy. Cup-a-soup, ramen noodles and a few cans of soup or stew with help out in a time of need. Bottled water will keep you hydrated so keep a case of water in your car. You will need a mess kit with a metal cup and bowl so you can heat your food. And forks and spoons will help to.

Step 5
A good first-aid kit, you can buy a store bought one just add needed items that you and your family would need. You most make this kit fit your needs and the needs of your family. So add the little things that your family need.

Step 6
Keep your survival kit current. Making a list of things you need for your survival kit is an easy way to remember to pack it during winter months. It is also a good way to ensure there are fresh batteries in your flashlight, extra batteries, dry, new matches or good lighters, or new food and water. And make a list of all items in the kit and the dates that the item goes bad so you can pull that item when needed.

Step 7
A small flare-gun kit. You can get this at Wal-Mart for about $25-$35 and is well worth the money. If you are lost and broke down in the cold and snow a plane near may never see your car but if you shot off the flare gun it’s a good chance they will see you. This is one item that is worth its weight in gold.



Things you’ll need:
Two large metal coffee cans
Two rolls of toilet paper
Small flare-gun kit
4-8 Medium sized smokeless candles
Matches and 3-4 lighters
Bottled water(one case)
Packaged nuts, dried fruit, soup, and ramen noodles
Cell phone
Flashlight with extra batteries
Warm clothing, blankets at least 4, hats, gloves and other warm clothes

Working In My Shop Today

Just working in the shop and trying out new tools. I set up a new item for my table saw and have played with it all day. After my playing around I worked on setting up the shop a little better. Moving some things around and resetting them in a better place. I have went over what I have and now see some things I may need to make my shop complete or complete to me.

Now on to other stuff I still think we are running out of time. I see the dollar sliding down more and more as the days and weeks go by. I see unemployment going up as time goes on. Things are tight for most of us and as time goes by it will get worse. So get to prepping ASAP and if you have not started then do it now; start a plan and work on it.
Remember that evil is just over the hill and night is coming.

Not Much To Say Today


I was a bum most of the day. I went to the woodworking show today and got a few tools I need. And looked over the many new items that are out this year. I have a few skills I'm good at one is woodworking and the other is leather working. I have done both for years and still to this day love them both. I learn new tricks every week sometimes every time I work on something. I try to learn a new skill each year, so I can truly say I'm a jack of all trades and a master to none. As good has I think I my be at my woodworking or leather working I know I will be learning till the day I die. I think most skills are this way you pick up new little bits of info every time you do them. Over the last year I have been trying to build up my hand tools that I have. Don't get me wrong I love my power tools but I know one day I will have to work without power, and I know it can be done because our forefathers did it. The woodworkers of old didn't have a Delta table saw or router table and one day I will have to do without them, so I am working on building up my hand tools. And learning to use them. I know one day my leather work and my wood working may be the way I make a living, but I bet it will be my nursing skills that keeps me going.

Keep your eye's open and your ear to the ground, because evil is just over the hill and night is coming.

Buying Preps And The People Who Look At You

I was at Wal-Mart the other day buying some items for storage. In my buggy was 20 (2lb) bags of rice, 3 (10 lb) bags of rice, 20 boxes of salt, 15 bags of red beans, 15 bags of black beans, 10 bottles of cooking oil and 8 boxes of 12ga shotgun shells. Plus I have a few other items we needed at the house. So I'm walking into sporting goods with all the food stuff in my buggy. I'm going to check on the ammo and maybe buy some. I get to the ammo case and no 22LR, 9mm, .223, 38 spl or any of the ammo I want, so I look at the shotgun shells and the have some at a good price. As I'm putting the shells into my buggy I see this guy standing about five feet from me. So I look up at him and say "hello", he said hello back and then the next second he asked me if I was getting ready for world war III. I smiled and said "no just stocking up my hunting cabin". And then I said,"maybe I should buy extra for my house in case the economy gets any worse". He look me in the face and said,"I think things are as bad as they are going to get, I think things are starting to get better".
This is the sheeple's way of thinking and it will cost most of them with there life's. I could have talked to this guy, but I know it would have been a waste of my time and his. I could see it in his eye's, this man lives to be unprepared. I still don't get the sheeple and the way they see me. I'm crazy, nut's or I'm a doom seeker but it's not crazy to waste you money on a boat you may use 4-6 times a year, or go on trips to God knows where and spend a ton of money. I'm not saying to stop having fun or going on trip, because I still do. But for your safety and the safety of your family stock up on food, water, medical supplies and household items you will need. It take a little bit of your time and you do have to work hard at keeping your preps up to date and ready, but the pay off is 100 times what you put into it. Get you head out of the clouds and wake up, because our time is short. The dollar is on it's last leg and I don't think it will make it very far. And when(not if) hyperinflation hits us your dollar will not go very far at all. Can you even think of the way people will react to the price of milk going from $2.99 a gallon to $12.99 a gallon or worse. Now is the time to wake up and start stocking up.
I still think evil is just over the hill and our time is so very short.

Thomas Jefferson


"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants"

"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty"

"We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness"

"Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual"

"Educate and inform the whole mass of the people... They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty"

"I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than those attending too small a degree of it"

"The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield and government to gain ground"

"It behooves every man who values liberty of conscience for himself, to resist invasions of it in the case of others: or their case may, by change of circumstances, become his own"

Gold And Silver Up The Dollar Is Down......Next Is The Collapse


Well I woke up today to the dollar going down and gold and silver going up. I see the collapse coming soon, and when it hits it will hit with a vengeance. For to long people have hot paid any attention to the writing on the wall. And now the same people are going to get a wake up call they will never forget. I plan for the collapse and stock up on food, water, and medical supplies, but many don't and don't want to hear about it. So I stopped talking to them about the collapse. I do still talk about it a little at work but not as as much as before. I now wait till someone brings it up first. And then I will talk about how I feel and say what needs to be said. I feel that the collapse is near and our time is short, so you need to stock up and if you are getting ready for the collapse then you need to kick it into hing gear. I think the collapse will hit within the next 30-180 days. It may wait till after the new year but I think the bad shopping season will bring on the down fall. Some people don't have the money to pay for the rent, lights and other bills so many people will for-go the bills to buy the kids toy's for Christmas and this will be a spark to start the fire. My friends get yourself ready and stock up on items you need to survive because our time is short and evil is just over the hill and night is coming.

Fun Day....


Well today is a fun day for me and my wife. We are going to go up to applehill to get some apples. This is a place about 25 miles up Hwy 50 and a great little place to go for the day. They have great food, carmel apples, apple pies and much much more good food. Plus we can get a box or two of apples, and the apple cider is great. And one of the best things about this day is it will not break my bank, because it's not over priced like everything in CA.
As Andrea has said before in one of the comments she left at my blog, "You have to have fun from time to time" I'm not sure if that's her exact words but I think it was what she was saying. So I'm taking her advice and going on a fun day trip. So I'm off to look at home-made crafts and soaps and eat some great food. I hope everyone has a great day. Pete

More On Preps

I know most of us are working on our preps. If you are anything like me you never feel like you have enough of what you are stocking up on. When I get to a point that I feel like I'm getting close to having enough, it's at that point I look at what I have and think, "I could use two time what I have". I work on my preps every week and sometimes I do something with my preps everyday. One day it could be something as small as adding a few cans of soup that I got on sale and the next day it can be something as big as adding three or four 5 gallon buckets of salt, sugar or flour. Every day I add to my preps I feel a little better about my survival and the survival of my family. I was at Wal-Mart today and saw the LED clear lights I want to get after the Christmas shopping season I will watch for this item to be marked down. I got some glow sticks today from the markdown area, they were .25 cents a piece. I got 15 of them and I think I will go to the other Wal-Mart near me and see if they have any left.
Just keep it in your mind that when you are out and about keep an eye out for items you can use for survival. I always check out the markdown area. Last year I was at Wal-Mart and checked out the markdown area and found Mt. House freeze dried food the camping ones in the pouch. I bought all they had and checked all the stores near me and cleared them all out. So keep an eye out for deals and if you see something that is a seasonal item wait till they mark it down, so you can get the item you want and save money to.
And remember this year is going to be a bad shopping season so wait for the sales. I'm sure most stores will be running big sales as soon as they see the shopping season is going bad to worse. So just keep your eyes open and shop smart.

More Working On My Preps Today.....

This is my weekend to work, I have to work every other weekend. So I try to work on my preps a little before work. I move things and check dates and look over the items. I check the food saver bag to see if the seal of air is still in tact. I check the caned food and look over the cans for dents and to see if any have popped out.
Today I was looking over my deitz lanterns and checking the lantern fuel. I have a great stock of the fuel but I think I will get more. I don't think you can have to much lantern fuel. I plan on having light when TSHTF. I plan to live as good a life as I can, but I can only do that if I plan now and work hard to get myself ready. So I plan and work on my plan and then recheck my plan for holes. This is how we survivalist do things, we check and recheck till we get it right. And as we go on with life we see new things that we can add to our preps, so we then add the new item into the plan and it all starts over again. You just can't buy some survival items and put them in your back room and never check them. You have to add to them and rotate them and check them. Being a survivalist is hard work and work that is on going, but it will pay off 100 times the work you put into it.
All you have to do is look around yourself and see the world we live in. You know you need to get ready; and if you have not started may I ask you why not? Now is the time to start you may think it's to late but it's not. Everyday you put supplies away is one more day you made yourself more prepared. Start a plan to store food, water, medical supplies and household items you may need to survive a collapse. If you don't know where to start E-Mail me at californiasurvivalist2009@yahoo.com and put in the subject box of the E-Mail " Survival Start Help"
and I will give you as much help as I can. Start now with your preps, because our time is short and the evil is just over the hill and night is coming.

Working On My Preps


Was at CVS today and they had all of the Halloween items at 75% off. So i stopped and looked at the items and found a box set of 30 LED lights(Orange) The set has a bulb life of 25,000 hours and is 7.5 feet long. The best part is one set of 30 LED lights is 2.4watts(0.02 amps) so it will use very little power on my 12 volt power setup. I could use this set to have low light at night in a room or two in the house. I bought all they had and that was a total of 5 sets so that gives me 150 LED lights at 12 total watts and 0.10 amps. I think this will work well even on a small battery setup. I plan to build a battery cart with wheels so I can move it around and still plug it into the solar hookup to charge. I think I will look for Christmas lights after the shopping season and find them marked down. That way I may be able to find some in clear and I think the clear will put off even more light than the orange. I think the little things that we find are what will help make our days after the fall even better. The little item that now is just a little bit of junk could be a big deal in the post event of doom. Keep your eye's open and your ear to the ground because the evil is just over the hill and night is coming. And as always stock up on food, water and medical supplies!!!!

The Worst Is Yet To Come......


I saw today that the unemployment rate is at 10.2%, that's up from 9.8% in September. So the jobless rate is still going up, and food, gas, power, and every other item we use everyday is going up in price, but the economy is getting better as told by our leaders. This is BULL!!!! This country is on a down hill run at full speed and it will only stop when it hits the bottom. This crash will happen after this Christmas shopping is the worst in the history of this country. And the big job dump at the end or in the middle of the Christmas non-shopping season. I feel like this is the countries last dance. Most people will not see this coming, and the few that are ready will still have a hard time, but not as bad as the walking dead that think the Government will save them and make everything alright. If the walking dead are lucky they will wake up at the last second and be able to stock up on a few days or a weeks worth of food and water. But very few will do this and it's just a band aid to the problem. The survivalist who have stocked up for years and have ran over and over in there heads the crash many times will not have it easy. A hard road is before us and much work is left to do. I pray for our country and I pray for you fine people who have took the time to make yourself ready and safe to the evil that is just over the hill. And as I say every time I post, Stop and make the time to stock up on food, water, medical supplies and everyday household items you will need to survive the crash.
There is a dark evil just over the hill and night is coming, so stand ready.

Working On My Supplies

Well got up today and started to work on my preps. I am going to buy some more water today and maybe some butter to can. I see wal-mart has 1 lb of butter for $1.50, and here it sells for $2.25 and up for the everyday price. So I think I will get some of that butter. I plan to buy some more food saver bags today and start putting away more rice and beans. The way I do this works well for me, I bag up the rice in 1 lb bags and the beans into 2 lb bags. After I bag them I put them into a 5 gallon bucket and store them. I plan to eat well WTSHTF, and I plan for my family to eat well also. I spend time thinking of where my holes are in my prepping. I know I have them; we all do. I just hope the hole I have is one I can trade or barter for after the fall.
Looks as if the gold and silver prices are going up. That's good if you have it. I have a small amount of silver, but I put my money now into food, water, medical supplies and any household items I think we may need for the big fall.
As I do every time I post. I'm telling you all to get ready for the big fall, or the event of doom. The evil is just over the hill and night is coming!

A New Month And The Same Old Tyranny

Well our government is up to it's same old games. At one point in the last week or two I heard them say that the recession is over and we are on the way back up, and today I go to yahoo and read this,

Obama: Private, public sectors must create jobs
Obama: Job-creation is top priority as nation continues its economic recovery


WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama said Monday the public and private sectors must find more ways to create jobs to continue the nation's climb out of an economic recession.

Obama said the economy has pulled back "from the brink" but still has a long way to go, especially in creating jobs. The president said job losses would continue for weeks and months to come and called for bold, innovative action by his administration, Congress and the private sector to create more good-paying jobs.

Obama made the remarks at the start of a White House meeting in the Roosevelt Room with economic advisers. The session was open to reporters and streamed live on the White House Web site.

He also said the U.S. must break out of a "debilitating gridlock on trade policy," by ending the false choice between a wide-open, free wheeling import policy or fearful, protectionist approach to trade. He called for a more balanced policy of letting the world know America wants to compete and trade -- fairly -- with anyone. He gave no specifics.

In opening remarks, Obama credited his stimulus package for recent upticks in economic numbers, including a significant boost in manufacturing that was reported on Monday.

But, he said, "The reason we're here today is because we just are not where we need to be yet. We've got a long way to go. We are still seeing production levels that are significantly below peak levels and most distressing is the fact that job growth continues to lag."
This was from AP at Yahoo

So let me get this right, we are out of the recession and have pulled back from the brink of doom. But we are going to keep losing jobs. And every month we get the news that the last month was worse than the one before. I just can't see how the recession is over; unless they are ready to admit that we are in a full depression. I think the worst is still down the road. Wait till this Christmas season is the worst in the last 50 years. Most of the people of this country can see the writing on the wall and know we are in big trouble. The people that don't see it are all fools. I think the economy is just about to pop. The FED and uncle sugar have pumped up the dollar and the stock market just about as much as they can and it's all about to go BOOM!!!
As I have always said, please get your house in order and stock as much ammo,food, water, medical supplies and household items as you can. Our time is getting very short and everyday we let slip by is a day we will never get back, so get your butt in gear and start to prep and if you are a prepper now then keep it up and kick it into high gear. The Evil is just over the hill and night is coming.

Be Prepared for the Worst

Be Prepared for the Worst
Ron Paul, 11.16.09
Forbes.com


Any number of pundits claim that we have now passed the worst of the recession. Green shoots of recovery are supposedly popping up all around the country, and the economy is expected to resume growing soon at an annual rate of 3% to 4%. Many of these are the same people who insisted that the economy would continue growing last year, even while it was clear that we were already in the beginning stages of a recession.

A false recovery is under way. I am reminded of the outlook in 1930, when the experts were certain that the worst of the Depression was over and that recovery was just around the corner. The economy and stock market seemed to be recovering, and there was optimism that the recession, like many of those before it, would be over in a year or less. Instead, the interventionist policies of Hoover and Roosevelt caused the Depression to worsen, and the Dow Jones industrial average did not recover to 1929 levels until 1954. I fear that our stimulus and bailout programs have already done too much to prevent the economy from recovering in a natural manner and will result in yet another asset bubble.

Anytime the central bank intervenes to pump trillions of dollars into the financial system, a bubble is created that must eventually deflate. We have seen the results of Alan Greenspan's excessively low interest rates: the housing bubble, the explosion of subprime loans and the subsequent collapse of the bubble, which took down numerous financial institutions. Rather than allow the market to correct itself and clear away the worst excesses of the boom period, the Federal Reserve and the U.S. Treasury colluded to put taxpayers on the hook for trillions of dollars. Those banks and financial institutions that took on the largest risks and performed worst were rewarded with billions in taxpayer dollars, allowing them to survive and compete with their better-managed peers.

This is nothing less than the creation of another bubble. By attempting to cushion the economy from the worst shocks of the housing bubble's collapse, the Federal Reserve has ensured that the ultimate correction of its flawed economic policies will be more severe than it otherwise would have been. Even with the massive interventions, unemployment is near 10% and likely to increase, foreigners are cutting back on purchases of Treasury debt and the Federal Reserve's balance sheet remains bloated at an unprecedented $2 trillion. Can anyone realistically argue that a few small upticks in a handful of economic indicators are a sign that the recession is over?

What is more likely happening is a repeat of the Great Depression. We might have up to a year or so of an economy growing just slightly above stagnation, followed by a drop in growth worse than anything we have seen in the past two years. As the housing market fails to return to any sense of normalcy, commercial real estate begins to collapse and manufacturers produce goods that cannot be purchased by debt-strapped consumers, the economy will falter. That will go on until we come to our senses and end this wasteful government spending.

Government intervention cannot lead to economic growth. Where does the money come from for Tarp (Treasury's program to buy bad bank paper), the stimulus handouts and the cash for clunkers? It can come only from taxpayers, from sales of Treasury debt or through the printing of new money. Paying for these programs out of tax revenues is pure redistribution; it takes money out of one person's pocket and gives it to someone else without creating any new wealth. Besides, tax revenues have fallen drastically as unemployment has risen, yet government spending continues to increase. As for Treasury debt, the Chinese and other foreign investors are more and more reluctant to buy it, denominated as it is in depreciating dollars.

The only remaining option is to have the Fed create new money out of thin air. This is inflation. Higher prices lead to a devalued dollar and a lower standard of living for Americans. The Fed has already overseen a 95% loss in the dollar's purchasing power since 1913. If we do not stop this profligate spending soon, we risk hyperinflation and seeing a 95% devaluation every year.
