    11 Red Flag Events That Just Happened As We Enter The Pivotal Month Of August 2015

    This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at the Economic Collapse Blog.

    red-flag-warningAre you ready for what is coming in August?  All over America, economic, political and social tensions are building, and the next 30 days could turn out to be pivotal.  In July, we saw things start to turn.  As you will read about below, a major six year trendline for the S&P 500 was finally broken this month, Chinese stocks crashed, commodities crashed, and debt problems started erupting all over the planet.  I fully expect that this next month (August) will be a month of transition as we enter an extremely chaotic time in the fall and winter.  Things are unfolding in textbook fashion for another major global financial crisis in the months ahead, and yet most people refuse to see what is happening.  In their blind optimism, they want to believe that things will somehow be different this time.  Well, the coming months will definitely reveal who was right and who was wrong.  The following are 11 red flag events that just happened as we enter the pivotal month of August 2015…

    #1 Puerto Rico is going to default on a 58 million dollar debt payment that is due on Saturday.  Even though this has serious implications for the U.S. financial system, Barack Obama has said that there will be no bailout for “America’s Greece”.

    #2 As James Bailey has pointed out, the most important trendline for the S&P 500has finally been broken after holding up for six years.  This is a critical technical signal that will likely motivate a significant number of investors to sell off their holdings in the weeks ahead.

    #3 The IMF is indicating that it will not take part in the new Greek debt deal.  As a result, the whole thing may completely fall apart

    Leaked minutes of the fund’s latest board meeting, which took place on Wednesday, showed staff “cannot reach agreement at this stage” on whether to take part in the new €86bn (£60bn) bailout for Greece. The document said there were doubts over the capacity of the Athens Government to implement economic reforms, as well as the over the sustainability of the country’s sovereign debt pile, which is now projected to hit 200 percent of GDP.

    The German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, only sanctioned a new Greek deal earlier this month on the condition that the IMF takes part.

    #4 Italy is going down the exact same path as Greece, but Italy is going to be a much larger problem for Europe because it has a far, far larger economy.  This week, we learned that youth unemployment in Italy has reached a 38-year high of 44 percent, and Italy’s debt to GDP ratio has now hit 135 percent.

    #5 The Canadian economy has officially entered a new recession.  This is something that was not supposed to happen.

    #6 The price of oil plummeted close to 20 percent during the month of July.  It was the worst month for the price of oil that we have seen since October 2008, which just happened to be during the height of the last financial crisis.

    #7 Commodities just had their worst month in almost four years.  As I have written about previously, we witnessed a collapse in commodity prices just before the stock market crash of 2008 too.

    #8 Thanks to Barack Obama, the U.S. coal industry is imploding, and some of the largest coal producers in the entire country have just announced that they are declaring bankruptcy

    On Thursday, Bloomberg reported that the biggest American producer of coking coal, Alpha Natural Resources, could file for bankruptcy as soon as Monday.

    Competitor Walter Energy filed for bankruptcy earlier this month, and several others have done the same this year.

    #9 For the month of July, the Shanghai Composite Index was down 13.4 percent.  Despite unprecedented government intervention to prop up the market, it was the worst month for Chinese stocks since October 2009.

    #10 A major red flag that a recession in the United States is fast approaching is the fact that Exxon Mobile just announced their worst earnings for a single quarter since 2009.  Compared to the same time period one year ago, Exxon Mobile’s earnings were down 51 percent.

    #11 Chevron is another oil giant that has seen earnings plunge.  In the second quarter of this year, Chevron’s earnings were down an eye-popping 90 percent from a year ago.

    And in this list I didn’t even mention the economic chaos that is happening down in South America.  For full coverage of that, please see my previous article entitled “The South American Financial Crisis Of 2015“.

    To a certain extent, I can understand why most Americans are not alarmed about the months ahead.  The relative stability of the past several years has lulled most of us into a false sense of security, and the mainstream media is assuring everyone that everything is going to be just fine and that brighter days are ahead.  At this point, many believe that it is patently absurd to suggest that we could see an economic collapse in 2015.  But of course even though the signs were glaringly apparent, very few of us anticipated the financial crisis of 2008 either.

    A few weeks ago, I authored a piece entitled “The Last Days Of ‘Normal Life’ In America“, and I stand by every single word of that article.  I truly believe that the era of debt-fueled prosperity that we have been enjoying for so long is coming to an end, and our standard of living will never again get back to this level.

    Just yesterday, I had the chance to go over and stock up on some emergency supplies at a dollar store.  It always astounds me what you can still buy for a dollar.  The combined cost of raw materials, manufacturing, packaging, shipping and retailing most of these items shouldn’t be less than a dollar, but thanks to having the reserve currency of the world we are still able to go to these big box stores and fill up our carts with lots and lots of extremely inexpensive merchandise.

    Unfortunately, this massively inflated standard of living is going to come crashing to a halt.  This next financial crisis is going to destroy the system that is currently producing such comfortable lifestyles for the vast majority of us, and that will be an extremely painful experience.

    So enjoy this summer for as long as it lasts.  Even though August threatens to be pivotal, it is going to be nothing compared to what will follow.

    Fall and winter are coming.

    Prepare while there is still time to do so.

        • passinwiththewind says:

          Good day to all my prepping friends at SHTF PLAN. As I have been away for awhile, the thoughts of folks here have been with me. Cuz (oicu) has kept me informed of the articles and such. It seems as though the skirmishes between TEST and JQP have disappeared.

          As I have been busy with more intriquing adventures, I wanted to stop back by and share a few things that have been going on. There is definitely a new horizon, on the horizon. The messages have been coming through loud and clear. As I stated a few weeks ago here, the five months from August through December 2015, will set the stage for the domino affect, that will take us up to the final five months that will consummate, the end of this age. The time in between could be years or even decades. I believe it will be more like 15 years, but could be only 15 months for some, and 15 days for others.

          The wife and I went to a Gathering this past Sunday which was spirit filled and met a man of Christ, and shook his hand, after listening to his witness and teaching. I won’t call names for various reasons, but suffice to say, this man has been doing the Lord’s work, nearly every day, for nearly five decades in over fifty nations. He is a true man of God, and has received many revelations, divine gifts, and more importantly, divine visitations. Various angels and even the Lord Jesus Christ himself, have made appearances with words of comfort, warnings, and work orders.

          This man was led by those same divine leaders, to follow a path carved out many centuries ago by the very first dissenters of the Roman Catholic Church, even before Martin Luther.
          As most that have never had divine interaction in their lives, it is hard to believe these events: but as one that has had a few interactions, I believe anything, and all things, are possible with God. If a person is visited by the King himself, then you are very blessed and anointed, and are in a very elite group.

          Later in the week, I was shown many things by the spirit and I want to share a couple that may come in handy. I won’t get into prophetic words that my newest friend has been shown because it would require too many paragraphs, but I will close up with what is coming.
          This man has received very specific words and visitations on the exact same day of the year, for the past nineteen years. From the start, he has made himself available for these spirit filled encounters and the messages along with them. That day each year is the Day of Atonement, or by Hebrew association the most sacred of the feast days, called Yom Kippur. Forget the “jewish” association, because it is of the Lord and Heavenly Father, first and foremost.

          When is the Day of Atonement this year?
          Jerusalem was reclaimed by Israel during the Six Days War in June of 1967. Recall that in the seventy-weeks paradigm, the “seven” is seven weeks of years which is (7 x 7) forty-nine years. June 7, 1967 falls in the Hebrew year 5727, adding forty-nine prophetic years to this date we arrive in the Hebrew year 5776, which is 2015 on the Gregorian calendar. Interestingly, if one counts exactly forty-nine (360 day) prophetic years (17,640 days) from the June 7, 1967 date of Jerusalem’s recapture, we arrive at September 23, 2015—the Day of Atonement! Coincidence?
          It will be interesting to see what message the Lord has for His servants this coming Day of Atonement.
          Last year, the message was long, but basically said, we are in a time of “intense inspection”. We are looked at from every corner and even the hairs on our head are numbered. God says we as humans have entered a time of “intense acceleration”, and each person of earth will soon be under a season of “shifts”. There will be “power shifts” that come upon His chosen and those that “seek His divine authority” in their lives. There will be “conviction shifts” upon those that refuse Him, or have been living a lie, aka, the fake christians, that use church as a scapegoat or tool to further their own selfish desires.
          Then there will be “economic shifts” for those living for the all mighty dollar and the useless stuff bought with it.
          So it is about to begin. Each person has to make the decision as to how they handle the upcoming shifts. Parents will be most hard hit because they must make decisions that affect the children that are under the age of accountability. Many did not heed the warnings that were given many years ago here on SHTFplan, and other places, about getting their finances/mortgages/deposits of investments, in order. I remember giving warnings about debt here, many times.

          As we approach the last month of the “ninety day” countdown warning for preparation, that was given about two months ago, it is now critical to fast track the procurement of Provisions for at least the winter months ahead. Do not hesitate, because many different storm fronts are brewing.

          PS. I was walking out to the barn the other day, and as it had just started raining pretty good, and I had an umbrella. There had not been one clap of thunder and it had not been very hot. i looked to the sky as I approached the barn and thought, “that cloud looks kinda weird”. At about that same time I heard a voice say…”lightening bolt” and I thought, I’m in the open with a danged metal framed umbrella. I ran the last twenty yards and just as I got under the roof, a lightening bolt hit about a hundred yards up the hill and disintegrated a full sized peach tree, hanging full of fruit.
          The spirit of the Devil has the ability to monkey with the weather, which includes lightening. Maybe, that evil spirit was coming after this man that is trying to produce good fruit of the spirit???
          Talk about making you thankful for guardian angels. Everyone washed in the blood has one or two. Call on them.

These Co’ s have raped Americans for a century.

            PWTW, good to see you back. I’ve got another supply run to my cousin’s BOL in 2 weeks. It’s possible I could be bugging out anytime between now and the end of the year. Nothing out here looks promising except for the possibility of revolution/civil war.

          • Russ says:

            Hey there Brother PWTW.

            I was stopped dead in my tracks by the Lord to read your post. I visit often but hardly ever post. I was paging down and I was told to stop and go up a bit and I caught the words “Lord Jesus Christ”, then I knew where God was directing me too. I started reading where you were talking about the “Man of God” after reading your post. I now know what God has been telling me to do. My mind has been blasted the last few weeks with the thought of stocking food and water…we do what we can but are no where near where we need to be…we’ll after this sign the Lord showed me…we will be pushing harder to get all in order…

            The Lord our God is incredible and all the praise and glory go to Him. I thank Him each and every day that he pulled me out of the miry clay. He saved me back in dec of last year, dec 14th to be exact (He took His time to save me…I’m 51 and never felt more alive)…and since then He has placed a lot on my heart and when I go out and about I pray to the Lord to put folks in front of me to witness to..I always ask, if its in Your will dear Lord place folks in front of me who you want me to witness too..yesterday it was a young mormon and another unbeliever….the Lord had me plant the seed and now someone else will water and the Lord will make it grow if it is in His will.

            If anyone out there is reading this and feels the need.. cry out to Jesus and repent for your sins and accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior…Believe in your heart He died and rose three days later and is now sitting at the Fathers right hand and confess with your mouth He is Lord. Amen

            On closing I want to say God Bless you brother and keep your eyes open to see and your ears open to hear.

            A loyal humble servant of Christ
            Russ

              Bless you and yours, brother Russ.

              50 is a Jubilee year. People do not realize the significance of how important the age of 50 and 51 can be for them.
              Sometimes it starts with correction and then amazing things start happening if we walk the narrow path with the spirit faith.

              The mockers and naysayers have a rough time ahead, that you can bet on. Don’t waste your time on them unless they ask for help and witness/guidance. We are to “stay on the path” of preparation, and not let them bring us down to their dark world. We are children of the new light.

              • The Moedim are extremely important as I have been learning the last 7 months. That and the fact most every theologian and bible scholar and pastor has totally gotten the Daniel timeline wrong….and Jonathan Cahn is wrong too on the Shemitah.

                • passinwiththewind says:

                  The timeline was given by Christ, when He spoke of the parable of the Fig Tree in Matthew 24.

                  The generation that sees the Fig Tree restored ( reforming of the Nation of Israel ), shall also see the time of the end of this Age.

                  What is a generation? 40, 70, and 120 years (some say 100).
                  As all these Matt 24 events unfold, we are told to be watchful and wait.

                  The time of Antichrist was shortened, but time of tribulation was not. Those that say we are in tribulation, don’t know what real tribulation is. USA/House of Israel/Caucasian peoples predominately, as well as the races that have been grafted in, will see tribulation for the allowance of major sins like idolatry, abortion, and acceptance of homosexuality. White privilege, and pc, don’t mean squat when the dominoes start falling. The falling can come and go in waves of time. But they will grow closer together as the birth pangs.

                  There will be plenty of time left, but little time left to prepare, (for most). Supernatural protection and covering is what is the most important tool for prepping. Having years of food and weapons won’t be worth a hill of beans if the covering isn’t in place.

                  I had rather be one year too early, than ten minutes too late.

                  Just sayin’.

          • “The time in between could be years or even decades. I believe it will be more like 15 years, but could be only 15 months for some, and 15 days for others.”

            Honestly you are just as bade as Michael. It could be 15 minutes, 15 seconds or 15 hours. Or even a combination of 15 plus 15 years. Who can say. For some it will be today for others tomorrow. What is “Death” Alex for 1500.

            • passinwiththewind says:

              RJ, you seem to be a skeptic.

              But, I will humor you a sec.

              There are two deaths. Death of the flesh, and death of the spirit/soul/intellect of the soul/mind being.

              Man can kill the flesh and spill the blood, but only the Father that gave the soul life, can take it away. Satan is powerful, but he can’t give life, except he can take flesh life. He has killed millions through fake religions and demonized leaders. There souls are still living in the other realm, awaiting the end of this age. Some were approved and written in the Book of Life, others will have to work it out during the Millennium. Some already had their chance.

              Death of the flesh is just a transition into the realm where only spirit bodies and souls live. Spirit bodies and souls can enter this dimension, but flesh and blood can’t enter theirs.
              Simple as that.
              We had to be born from above, through the womb, in order to die the flesh death to return to that dimension. The fallen angels refused to be born “of the womb/flesh”, so they are already sentenced to death of the spirit/soul, when God is finished “using” them to “test” men and women in the last five months.

              Simple as that.

              • Sorry I don’t believe in your christian analogy about life after death. Have you ever read the summerian texts or gnosticism which was around well before jesus came on the scene? The truth is that all religions are created to appease the masses and make them feel like they will one day get their just rewards in the afterlife after enduring misery in the flesh.

                The entire final premise of the bible is in complete contrast to what christians tote as free will. To have a world that is sin free would also mean that free will would be gone and that man would be incapable of sin.

                According to the bible, even angels were able to choose between following god and going their own way, so this outcome is not plausible.

                **Not to mention the whole god releasing the devil one last time before finally taking him out forever game. Who does that? It’s like catching a serial killer and letting him out of jail for a few more weeks before deciding to lock him up forever.

                I also wonder where people went when they died before jesus and the bible came onto the scene. I guess you lost the spiritual lottery if you happen to be born before jesus christ died for you, right?

            • Charles says:

              RJ, You should feel privileged that the Great one has lowered himself to ” humor” you. You certainly don’t deserve his one on one counseling, unless you’ve really pissed somebody off somewhere in your past. You’re 100 per cent correct about his timeline, when people can’t/won’t answer direct questions with a direct answer, it always falls to the old baffle ’em with bullshit routine, after all, there’s no way he can answer your question so he has to change the subject and hope like hell you’re too stupid to know the difference. The funny part is there are plenty here who just lick it all up with a spoon and beg him for more. There’s no help for the truly lost sheeple who can’t think for themselves.

Maybe not, but when you were worked like a grown man from the age of seven thru 14, you sure as heck get a jump start on the wearing out part. There was no such thing as gloves when we were kids in the sixties. By the time I was ten, my hands were totally callused over. Ten more years of back breaking work at an average of five bucks an hour, praise the Lord and pass the taters.

              The pain is something i deal with without taking heavy meds. Ibuprofen and aspirin, and occasionally muscle relaxers when it gets real bad. No pill junkie here.

              When it seems unbearable, i bear down a little harder and think about all the pain my Saviour took for me while preparing for, and hanging on the Cross. Surely a little suffering on my part is nothing compared to what He endured for my sins.

              Bless you all, and remember this….As true Christians, we prepare as best as we can, but rely on the blessed hope of the Father’s promises from Joel…….

              And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, ….

              And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed.

                I’ve got the same issues you do with aches and pains. No drugs for me either. I drink tons of water, try to eat right and once a month I have a body massage. It’s costly, 90.00 for 90 minutes, but well worth it. It’s amazing how great I feel afterwards.

                    See, FTW, the true Christians don’t follow a “religion”, and especially not man’s doctrine. We follow the Word through faith.
                    Jesus Christ makes himself known to His Sheep, because the Sheep know His voice, and follow.

                    He is coming back to set up His kingdom here on terra firma, not in the clouds. It will be in the land of Jerusalem, and points beyond.

                    Goats and sheep will be separated. Where will you be? Answer. Every knee will bow, and you will too.

Scroll your little worried mind and ass on through the comments in this little corner, and keep your negative insults to yourself, and that goes for the others that are jealous as well. You all will have your time to rant to the King of Kings soon enough. See how well that works out for ya.

                    I will say a little prayer for conviction towards all you non-believers while I’m soaking my feet in the surf at the beach this week. Ya’ll keep em’ coming.

        A 100 years from now, there will still be the same correlation in prophecies as it was 500 years ago.

              Just so you know.

              • The Lord never intended for His church to be divided up into hundreds of competing groups teaching vastly different doctrines. The Lord is not the Lord of confusion. It is man that has changed His doctrine and turned it into a mass of confusion and division. Much of this has be for filthy lucre (1 Peter 5:2) and in Ephesians 4:5, Paul tells us that there is “One Lord, one faith,one baptism,” not many Lords, many faiths and many different forms of baptism.

                Christ set up His church while on earth and appointed Peter as the lead Apostle over his church. After Christ’s death, Peter was to receive guidance from Christ to direct the church through a process called revelation. Christ established a particular leadership structure in His church, and this structure was to help unify the people within the church and to help avoid confusion on who was responsible for what components of the various roles within the church. In Apostle Paul’s instructions to the Ephesian members of Christ’s church, who were called Saints, he told them what the structure of the church should be. Christ’s church was set up with apostles, prophets, evangelists (missionaries), pastors (bishops), and teachers and this structure was to help perfect the saints. Paul also told the members that this church leadership structure was to be the structure until there was unity in the faith and until the members were perfected [which would not be until the Second Coming of Christ ]. This leadership structure was designed to keep the saints from being confused about which doctrines were correct.

                The reason there are so many different churches today is because the church Christ established was changed by men into a church that men wanted and the followers have become confused as to which doctrine is correct and where to find a church that teaches correct doctrine. We do know one thing and that is that Christ’s church will have 12 apostles (the number in the original church), a prophet, a strong missionary component, and pastors (also called bishops) and teachers. If a church is missing these key leadership components, then it is not structured after the church that was originally established by Christ and described by the Apostle Paul as cited in Ephesians 4:11-14 below (KJV).

                  So, .02:

                  When you talk about killing religions you only mean killing the Christian religion.

                  Islam, Hinduism, the African animist relations, Voodoo, Hoodoo and Macumba which they are derived from, as well as the Chinese gods and ancestor worship and Japanese Shintoism along with all the other lesser known ones are just fine.

                  FWIW, Jesus and his followers -all of them including the apostles- were Jews and practiced the Jewish religion so if there is any true Christian he does the same. Do you?

                  The falling away from sound doctrine, the Apostasy of the Church, is a part of the end ties prophecy and is not a distortion by man but by Satan acting through men.

                  Perhaps you should ask yourself a simple question: Do I confess that Jesus is the Christ come in the flesh -if so do so- or am I under the spirit of the Anti-Christ (who is Satan)?

                  • I believe what 02. is saying.

                    “Everything we have learned and were taught is a lie, why would Religion be any different?”

                    What makes Religion different from everything else?

                    FAITH?

                    This is usually the answer I receive from the Bible Banger Groups. Sorry, that is not an answer because faith is not fact.

                  • Might want to check that at the door. HOW MANY TIMES do we go through this Barn Cat? Jesus was NOT A JEW.

                    And YES Islam, Hindu, etc should all be banned.

                    The Christian religion has been corrupted in so many ways it to should be restructured to what the original church was supposed to be.

                    Despite the clamor of the blinded in part, “church-goer” and the duped “Judeo Christians” following the likes of Billy, Jerry, and Pat, et. al, Jesus would have been a follower of the Babylonian Talmudic Pharisaism of the day, which exists in the very same anti Christian Judaism form today… In fact, St. Paul even described it as well, noting that it was even then, working in his day, that “mystery of iniquity.”

                    Judaism follows the Talmud and not the Torah, the first five books of Moses…The Torah takes a far distant 2nd place in the minds and comments of the Rabbi’s of Judaism and as a consequence, they do not follow the original Hebraism of the early Israelite, those who met and agreed to abide by the Law given to them at Mt. Sinai.

                    When the tribe of Judah was taken to Babylon in a mild form of captivity, they abandoned their ancient Hebraism of the Torah and began to follow the “oral traditions” of the Pharisees who were called upon to circumvent these early Laws of the Torah while they were in the Las Vegas of the day, Babylon… This circumvention given to the Figs of Judah, both the good and bad, evolved into the long series of Rabbinical traditions that became the infamous, Talmud… now 63 volumes of very anti Christian writings and commentary… and clearly anti Jesus..

                    So, when He called them down and stated that their rules make the Laws of non-effect, He was speaking about their Talmud…

                    So, would Jesus have become a Jew in order to abide by the Talmud… Go figure… Hardly… Jesus was not a Jew..

If you put all your faith and time into one man and one man only, you’re bound to be let down time and again,you’re betting everything on the outcome of one horse so to speak, and when he loses as all horses or men eventually do, you have nothing left to start again with.

God knows I wish that we could avoid it but I don’t see any other way to save this country.

            • First thing one must ask dear BH is this “is this country worth saving?” One example to think about is this: The second paragraph of the United States Declaration of Independence starts as follows:

              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. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

              These same people were slave owners and only allowed MALE land holders to vote. So what we started out as a country was based on total hypocrisy.

              If there be an object truly ridiculous in nature, it is an American patriot, signing resolutions of independency with the one hand, and with the other brandishing a whip over his affrighted slaves.

      I’m certainly no fan of BHO, but we are the most resilient people on earth, and even with all the calamities he and George Bush have brought upon us, we could still somehow endure and survive, if not for those in the country that refuse to make an honest living. We all know it will never happen, but if we could just rid ourselves of the tax and spend like there is no tomorrow mentality that is so prevalent then we could balance the books, start a National Savings Account and actually get a good night’s sleep. Wouldn’t that be nice. Ya’ll will laugh at this, but if I were King, I would order 10% of all crops in the country had to picked by hand by those on welfare, ptsd, food stamps, government retirement, bipolar, multiple personality disorder, and all the website owners that require commenters to use disqus.

      • Taxn2poverty, the Founders would of frowned on your ideas of forcing people to work for Government Programs. The problem is not entirely a people issue, it is a Government issue.

        They are the ones who have made a system that is easily available to those who choose not to work or are able to work the system to their benefit.

        The Government Programs should always be there for the people, but only to those who truly need it. The broken system we have now needs to shut down the loop holes for those who are conning the system.

        All people who are of working age that are physically and mentally able to work should not be getting hand outs.
        Those that choose not to work, well that is their problem, not the taxpayers. Women that have 6 children from 6 different fathers. Guess what? That was their choice to put themselves in that situation, not the Government.

        Can’t blame people who choose to find loopholes to defraud a broken system. The Government System is the reason why mental, stable, and physically able bodied people scam the program.

        Name One Government operated program that has had a success?….please take your time……anybody and everybody can ponder this question too….and again…please take your time and think real hard…………………..you can do it, keep plugging away……………………………………….give up?……….I do too!…..I can’t find an answer either!

          As bad as I hate to give the government credit for anything, the VA educational bill for WW2 veterans actually paid tremendous benefits. But that was the one and only profitable example. It went into the red when the drug addicted Vietnam veterans came home, and that’s a fact. Now, on with the other stuff. I blame anyone, anywhere that takes advantage of any loophole that lessens my take home pay. People are the problem, not government. People run the government, people make the loopholes, people take advantage, and the system feeds itself until one morning the last taxpayer figures out it is useless and nonprofitable to go to work. Then who is to blame: The taxpayers, that’s who. Again, people are the problem.

          There have been SEVERAL govt programs that succeeded—but none of them were to the benefit of the American People.

          How ’bout operation paperclip? In the aftermath of World War II American Intelligence launched Operation Paperclip as a covert attempt to recruit the scientists of Nazi Germany for employment in the United States. It turned out to be quite successful, just look at Monsanto and a couple of other big pharma corps. They rule the world today.

          Rex 84? short for Readiness Exercise 1984, is a plan by the United States federal government to test their ability to detain large numbers of American citizens in case of civil unrest or national emergency. I think they’ve got this one covered as well.

          Project MKUltra? Project MKUltra was the code name of a U.S. government covert research operation experimenting in the behavioral engineering of humans (mind control) through the CIA’s Scientific Intelligence Division. One can’t read an article or watch a TV program without running afoul of this operation.

          Operation Mockingbird? Operation Mockingbird was a secret Central Intelligence Agency campaign to influence media beginning in the 1950s. I think they succeeded with this as well.

          Project MKNaomi? A joint Department of Defense/CIA research program lasting from the 1950s through the 1970s. It is generally reported to be a successor to the MKDELTA project and to have focused on biological projects including biological warfare agents—specifically, to store materials that could either incapacitate or kill a test subject and to develop devices for the diffusion of such materials. Anyone want to argue this one?

          Project RESISTANCE? A DOMESTIC ESPIONAGE operation coordinated under the Domestic Operations Division (DOD) of the CIA. Its purpose was to collect background information on groups around the U.S. that might pose threats to CIA facilities and personnel. I think they have greatly expanded on this one, to include most all of us today.

          Here’s one to laugh at though:

          Operation Acoustic Kitty

          Acoustic Kitty was a CIA project launched by the Directorate of Science & Technology in the 1960s attempting to use cats in spy missions to spy on the Kremlin and Soviet embassies. A battery and a microphone were implanted into a cat and an antenna into its tail. This would allow the cats to innocuously record and transmit sound from its surroundings. Due to problems with distraction, the cat’s sense of hunger had to be addressed in another operation.

          • “There have been SEVERAL govt programs that succeeded—but none of them were to the benefit of the American People.”

            That is exactly what I was aiming at Sixpack. Programs that succeed for the American People. They are pretty much non-existent and vague.

            I wasn’t disputing the questionable success of what the Government has been involved in the past, though some of them are borderline sketchy between right and wrong, most of them are wrong and immoral.

      The oil companies obscene profits are down 20% in July. Boo Frigging Hoo! The gas hasn’t fallen at the pump that percentage here in Florida. A couple pennies is all I’ve seen. We are still being gouged big time. The price should be well south of 2 dollars a gallon right now. These oil barons have stolen hundreds of billions of dollars over the years, polluted the planet with their offshoot chemicals and all the while suppressed clean technology that would render them obsolete. And I would be remiss in not saying, Obullshitusurper You frigging SUCK!

      • Archivist says:

        The price would be less than $2.00 if not for the taxes. Federal and state taxes here are around 65 cents per gallon. Gas is $2.39, so the price the store gets is $1.74. They keep a small percentage to pay salaries and overhead. The distributor makes a little bit more. The oil company that explores, drills, transports, converts to gasoline and countless other products, and pipes it all over the country makes less than what the distributor does. The store I worked for was owned by the distributor, and he had what was probably the biggest wine cellar in the area. He was rich, just on 10 cents a gallon, but on thousands of gallons per day in sales at each location he serviced.

        If you look at inflation, gasoline is a lot less than it ought to be. Gas here in NC is $2.39. 40 years ago it was $.52 (I had just started working at a convenience store at the time). So gas is 4.5 times higher than it was 40 years ago. Candy bars were 15 cents back then. Soft drinks were 20 cents. I was paying $50 a month rent for a house at the time. Tell me something else besides gas that is only 4.5 times higher now than it was 40 years ago.

          I worked almost three decades in an oil refinery starting out as an operator and retiring as an operations supervisor. Oil Refining is a very dangerous and expensive business to run and very competitive. The workforce is paid very well, they’re highly skilled. The margin for error hovers around zero.

          Oil refined today was purchased 2 months ago.

        • rednek101 says:

          The evil oil company routine is getting way old. Hasn’t been a real item to complain about for a decade plus. Many of the refineries have been sold off by the majors to address risk management issues. Risk management would include enhanced and costly regulatory compliance. Also consider the new age workers starting to make their way into the refining industry. Much less capable than the operators were twenty years back.

          Pretty much majors are headed toward E & P, “energy trading”, developing new oil fields etc…. Lower risk than trying to run refineries in the US with the current business environment.

          The cost of your gasoline is much more dependent on the laws of supply and demand these days. The refiner is buying oil on the open market. The refiner’s profits are greatly limited to sales at the pump and whatever differential they can squeeze out of the purchase of crude.

        • The Old Coach says:

          Would not even have electricity to run a computer. Try building a power plant or a high tension grid without oil-fueled machinery. Without coal, there would be almost no steel, just wrought iron or cast iron, and even those in rather small quantities. No trees left either, because the only way to make iron without coal is charcoal. About 15 tons of it for every ton of iron. Steel would be so scarce that a simple paring knife would be worth as much proportionally as a small car is to us today. The vast majority of tools would be wooden. Not that there isn’t some wonderful artistry in wooden tools, but you will have no more than a 17th century society if that’s all you have.

          I truly wish we could set up a separate planet for these naive little children to live on, with only the technology they favor. They’d be crying to be brought home in just a few months. Those that survived, anyway.

                Royalties on the other hand, last i knew, were from 1/8 to 1/4 production. So of the $100/bbl the oil companies were getting six+ months back, $25 went to the owners of the lease/oil rights. So now the oil company is making $75 per barrel. Whoops, less operating costs. Bakkan is running $65 per barrel. Wow looks like the windfall profits for the evil oil companies just isn’t as factual as certain folks would have you believe.

                  To their credit, the gas companies which are drilling all around me are rebuilding and/or repaving the roads they use to get to their rigs, but that’s on their dime, using their own contractors. They know that anything they give to the state for infrastructure upgrades will get the work done in three to five years, and they need it done now</b).

                  Not that I have any love for these companies, mind you. They are pretty careless about the messes they make, the pipeline easements they force on us make that land pretty much unusable forevermore, they are constantly blocking our roads, so that a four mile trip to town for me has become a 24 mile detour, and they run all sorts of book-keeping shenanigans to avoid paying property owners their due.

Prevailing wage here is 36.64 Mexican or no Mexican they have to pay prevailing wage PERIOD on gov jobs. So you make prevailing wage, overtime plus per diem and that is 10 grand a month easy. The jobs are out there you just have to know how to find them and the contractors don’t hire Mexicans on government subsidized jobs.because when paying prevailing wage, they want the best. Sorry about your bad luck with your dozer, maybe you should move.

              • And if you were to look, operating engineers on the coast in King County, Washington State running a front end loader with a bucket larger than 8 yards, prevailing wage is $55.79 per hour. So O G they do pay more than 40 an hour for equipment operators in many places. Next time you call bullshit, Google is your friend.

                • nosuchuser says:

                  Is that $58/hr with their ‘dozer’ and fuel or your ‘dozer’ and fuel?

                  • Their dozer, their fuel and most the time it is walk onto the job, run the already warmed up equipment until quitting time and you put it in the line up for the fueler/oiler and shut it off and walk away. Yes, 58 an hour to pull levers and play in the sand box with the big boy toys and all you do is bring your lunch.

          • smokey says:

            You must not own the dozer, then. Leaving expensive machinery sitting idle while you screw the pooch for six months is stupid.

            You should be making 120k a year instead of 60k, and putting the money into something for the future, instead of just getting by.

            • There comes a time when trading hours for dollars becomes a situation where the hours you have left are worth more than the dollars you make. Now what you might consider the future, I see dollars becoming worthless while hours are precious. You only live once and I want to enjoy my time on this planet while my health still holds together instead of working 6 days a week 52 weeks a year to pile up digits in a bank account that most likely will be stolen in the future anyway. I keep expenses to a minimum so I do better than just get by on 60 grand a year. I gave up on the toys and the 150,000 dollar hauler years ago and live very simple on less than 1200 a month burn rate for all expenses. Time is priceless. Work, not so much.

Last I heard he’s bunking in with a friend. Can’t pass his physical, doesn’t know any other work, and hasn’t got a dime left. (Although I reckon he’s got a SSI pension.)

                • Lol I have been married 40 years, Class A CDl physical every 2 years including UA, drug UA’s on nearly every job I take with more than once involved in randoms. In my trade druggies are quickly washed out. Hair tests are now becoming the norm which makes it even better for me as now even more competition is going to get the axe making for even better wages.

      I just stocked up on more spiral notebooks. Wal-Mart has them for 17 cents each for the ones with 70 pages. That’s cheaper than their cheapest notebook paper. You can get a whole case of the notebooks for $4 or $5.

      We will need paper and pens or pencils to record what happens for the future. Also for inventories, personal diaries, garden planning, etc.

      Besides regular pens and pencils, I have mechanical pencils because the leads take up so little space. You can put 10 or more containers into just one for storage because they’re never full when you buy them. You can write for a long time with a stockpile of pencils and leads. The small diameter means you can write smaller and use less paper.

      There are some good deals in back-to-school supplies right now at Wal-Mart and the office supply stores. I have paper, notebooks, pencils, crayons, coloring pencils, copy paper, etc. Now is the time to buy.

        Good idea, thanks. I think I’ll do just that.

      • Yahooie says:

        Now is the time to stock up on cold and flu supplies. When autumn arrives, people will begin thinking about winter colds and sniffles. There is plenty on the shelves now.

        Another item I seldom see listed is thread–plain old sewing thread. Have a few spools and sewing needles to repair clothing. Try not to get the ultra cheap-o 10 for a dollar kind. Get bigger spools of a brand like Coats & Clark (my fave is Guterman’s but sewing is my thing.) that won’t have the tendency to shred, snarl, and break. If you only pick a few colors, pick black, white and gray. Oddly enough, gray blends into most anything. (Learned that from having a serger.) My travel sewing kit has helped me out of a lot of problems; yes, even camping. Pulled out a needle and fishing line (light weight) to fix a tent torn up by heavy wind (and 8 months pregnant). Still have the tent many years later. 🙂

        The notebooks are also good for noting herbs and plants that you find helpful when wildcrafting. Good to know your inventory on herbs–what works, what doesn’t–assuming herbal knowledge, of course.

        • Braveheart says:

          I always keep cold/flu medicine in my medical supplies. You never know when you’ll need it.

          Needles are a good barter item. I have stocked up, and have the larger needles for upholstery, etc.

          We inherited everything from a professional seamstress, including supplies and a treadle sewing machine.

          You can also repair window screens with needle and thread.

          • Yahooie says:

            Love my treadle machine. I have embroidery machines as well but for basic sewing not much beats a treadle. I need space to really use my loom and spinning wheel but one day it will happen. If it has to do with fiber and fabric, I’m all over it. I even save the cat’s hair to make yarn. Read that you have to be careful about items made with cat hair; you get too hot in them. LOL Still want to learn about spinning with cotton or flax; guess I should hurry that plan along.

        • Good point about Obama telling Israel to piss off about their own self inflicted wars/problems. Makes me wonder what is the goal here? Is there something more about this situation or is it just some more smoke and mirrors?

          I suppose I’ll know the answer is when the US Government stops sending Israel payments of 30 Billion a year to support these people. They are Gods Chosen People, why isn’t God supporting these people? Why do American Taxpayers have to fund them?

            The trouble with that statement is that, according to experts, everyone on earth is descended from Abraham. Everyone on earth is at least 50th cousins. Also, both Jews and Arabs are descended from Abraham.

            The current nation of Israel is not the same as the Israelites who escaped Egypt. The Israelites were Semitic. Most of the people in the nation of Israel are not Semitic, as proven by DNA testing. In other words, we are not required to treat the nation of Israel different from any other nation. That is fact.

            • taxn2poverty says:

              Issac, not Ishmael inherited Abraham’s blessings. Read your bible please, “Jacob I loved, Esau I hated.” God blessed Ishmael because of Abraham though, but Ishmael grossly misused those blessings. God said of him, “His hand shall be against every man, and every man’s hand shall be against him: he shall be a wild ass.” Now, look at the Arabs when they get excited about anything. Go back a few years to Yassar Arafat’ funeral. The people mobbed the funeral procession, climbed all over the casket and knocked it to the ground. Could you imagine American’s acting in such manner at Kennedy or Reagan’s funeral. In closing, concerning Israel, so goes Israel, so goes America. Obama has done us a terrible disservice by turning his back on Israel. God bless and give Israel some thought. thanks

        That dollar store was my secret weapon. I get rice, beans, seasonings, dried foods, canned meats, and a lot of real good deals there. A lot of this stuff can be put in air tight 5 gallon buckets with an O2 absorber and BINGO you have stored food for a good 5 years. I’ve doing this for about 8 years now and the food is always good to eat.
        I rotate the buckets and it works out real well, but I got carried away with the beans, a person can only eat so many beans before the wife kicks you out of bed at night!;-{ I don’t care how you try to flavor them.

      The Old Coach… Heh, you must own stock in these polluters. Struck a nerve did I? All pure BS you spew! Hemp itself can replace oil and vehicle fuel without the pollution, Henry Ford built a car made of hemp that ran on hemp fuel. Housing can be constructed entirely with hemp products, saving old growth forests from being clear cut. Cleaner non polluting and substainable agriculture methods are proven with growing hemp, a fast growing renewable. Your name fits your drivel. Old and coaching stupidity, a dinosaur. And the oil industry has brought nothing to humanity except war, death and misery. Another reefer madness fool you are.

      • Archivist says:

        Houses are built from pine cut from cultivated forests grown for the purpose, not from old growth hardwoods. Just like all the paper you use. Pine trees are just another crop, like corn or beans. Weyerhaeuser harvests trees and plants more in their place.

        Also, hemp can only be used for wallboarding and some sort of bricks, but the framework of a house cannot be built of hemp. The framework has to be wood or metal.

        Archivist, smokey, I was thinking much the same. Hemp is a fibrous plant used mostly in rope-making although I have seen hemp fabric from time to time like in shirts, etc. (kinda looks like linen; don’t know how well it wears) That said, if you want to weave a house, I suppose you could. Still need a framework to hang it all from. Perfect for a BOL in the tropics. 😀

      Yep. I meet with friend tomorrow, can’t wait to tell you all the latest. I have feeling that it’s more of the same..will just have to see. Everytime that something bad was about to happen to me I always got a bad vibe, I have been getting it again lately.. its impossible for this shtf event to not happen between now and the 2017 election inaguration.. no liberal will ever be allowed to win and if they win, the people will never accept another 8 yrs of hell, so the revolutionary war, civil war is going to happen. Between now and then period. The people want the bad things to stop in the country and if it does not stop by November of this year, I predict that people will be armed to the teeth swarming city centers by the hundreds of thousands and this time the Jade Helm 15 military and it allies with fire on the people and trigger a civil revolutionary war. My outlook is not a good one..my outlook is a very good possibility based on current trends. Engineered Economic calapse on a mass scale will cars being report, homes foreclosing, followed by massive layoffs and the networks feeding the people B…a….it on TV is going to rock off the people off to a violent response. this cannot continue.. let’s jot do get that they tried to get them selves secure by tying to EMP the country last October 2013 and almost succeeded.

      They tried to kill us in mass on October 2013. We were not ready it the time and all us would have been dead and not posting on this site. See utube video title Obama failed EMP event with Dr James Garrow to listen to what really happened and what they tried to do.

      They know that if the people wake up and they don’t get to kill of 90% of us by then that they have a very serious up rising to face and from the moment they fire on the patriots in public that means instant revolutionary war. The muslim protest in Arizona proved that people are kit afraid to take guns out in public to protest, now picture massive job layoffs, cars report, home foreclosed, then military called out into the streets. This is someone one somewhere I believe will trigger the war, fire the first shot, and that it.. I really believe that once this happens, it’s not going to stop and when the ceasar “pope” calls in the UN and activates Jade Helm, and then Chinese soldiers attack white families in their homes and streets it’s now war. I took Dr James Garrow warning seriously and believe that he is telling us what they have planed.. look at the timing of when the pope is coming in the country.. very interesting. My opinion mat not mean anything to most but it’s still a lickely senario. Its a possibility that it could go this way..

      Question for you good folks.
      A bunch of the financial companies have moved out of New York and moved to Chicago. Jade Helm has moved a very large contingency of our military to the Southwest. NORAD has just moved back into Cheyenne Mountain.

      I have two thoughts. The Guberment knows something is going to hit the East Coast. A comet, or an attack using nukes or just EMPs.

        It might be as simple as the cost of real-estate or politics as Obama has lots of friends in his home base, the windy city, that would get greased by the move. When you see the UN relocate look out.

      New to this site, but glad I found it…sort of. I’m fascinated by the articles, but also scared by them. Most of the comments seem to be made by males, so I feel a bit out-of-place.

      I just want to say that I feel hopeless. I will be 50 next year and live alone with my almost 11 year old granddaughter, whom I have custody of.

      We are poor, my mom helps supplement my income (bless her), and we live in a nice 2nd story apartment in the suburbs.

      I’m not blind to the changes I’ve seen taking place in society over the past decade or two. I can remember better times. But I feel helpless as a potential survivalist. Moving somewhere else is impossible financially, and I don’t even own a firearm. I actually have quite a lot of storage space for an apt., but haven’t started stocking up yet.

      Is it even possible to keep myself and granddaughter alive? How would one fortify & protect an apartment with 3 other apartments physically attached? I feel safer being on the second floor for some reason, but what if the neighbors go insane and come through the walls or floor?

      Any ideas or links to sites for new preppers, and/or apt. dwellers would be very appreciated.

      Great site and blessings to everyone here!

        Get a firearm,get some training and practice. Thats half the battle. Prep a bit at a time as much as you can and hope you have time to get where you want to be.

          Mellisa,what Jim mentioned in regards to defense.This link will show you how to feed a family of 4 for a year on 300 dollars:ht tp://americanpreppersnetwork.com/2012/08/a-year-of-food-storage-for-300-for-a-family-of-four.html,we put a space between http at start of link to avoid moderation,delete then paste and learn,keep in mind this is a bland diet but will keep you fed,site there has other great ideas.Hit dollar stores for basic med supplies/bandages/gauze/aspirin ect.You have crossed the hardest part of prepping,accepting things may go very wrong.There is a phrase I use a bit that at this point annoys some folks as I use soo much but true,and it is”The smalls add up”Any thing you buy will be used as you rotate thru food(just hopefully not the med stuff),kudos to you for caring for your grand daughter and any ?’s just ask,a knowledgeable bunch of folks here with great ideas and links,you can do this.

        Being in the burbs, your best bet is to arm yourself, get plenty of water and food storage and find others like you for a community watch/support group. This could be for anything- weather, national defense, and man made like a collapse. There are tons of survival tips–just use search engines or places listed on the left side of this page.

        Also This can be a rough place.

        • Anonymous says:

          That’s a good strategy, Woogie! I would only add: keep it libertarian, an alliance, not an authoritarian unit of watchers that can therefore be easily captured (from without or, from within!). Every member’s strategy and tactics should also be kept to themselves to avoid the enemy’s reliance on intelligence for their victories. Remember, the enemy is unavoidably within every group.

          • Melissa7 says:

            Thanks Woogie…I have been reading a lot of stuff now.

            @Anon & Woogie…I’m not sure forming an alliance with my neighbors would be a good idea. First of all, I don’t know them well. Second of all, my complex is full of college-age students, some elderly ppl, and 30-40 yr. old yuppie types. Personally, I think the kind of ppl that live here will crumble if the SHTF, or run off. I was thinking it might be best to fortify my apt and stay hunkered down with my g-daughter until the worst is past. Board things up and keep others out.

            I have a woodburning fireplace which is good, although the smoke would attract attention that we’re here.

            Anyways, I’m off-topic and just wanted to thank you all for replying.

      “According to former congressman and retired U.S. Army Lt. Col. Allen West, the U.S. Navy has decided to bring charges against the naval officer who fired his personal weapon at Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez during the ISIS supporter’s July 16 attack on the Chattanooga U.S. Naval and Marine Reserve Center.

      Abdulazeez, armed with a handgun and an assault rifle, killed four Marines and one sailor.”

      It is bad folks time is running out fast. People dying off in the cold does happen but I’ve seen homeless people survive in tents. Your house without heat can be survived around here I’ve delivered heating oil to people that ran out and you can tell the houses that don’t have heat the snow on the roof don’t melt away like the others. It’s miserable but it can be survived a lot of houses are old and they have fire place inside and there is dead wood in every small wooded area that can be easily collected. you will only freeze to death if your to lazy to find a way to stay warm. I’ve worked outside in temps under20 degrees for over 10 hours daily it sucks but it is doable with the right gear. People need to not fuck around with the cold temps. Spend the $ and get the best $ can buy and you will be good. I like goretex. Mittens are better than gloves balaclava if it’s windy. Get a thick wool hat don’t shave your face either. I have a padded coverall and it works great I don’t feel the cold at all even if its windy. Your blood thickens in the winter so that helps. I like the coverall better than the bibs because I feel it traps more heat in. If you go inside take the coverall off right away. You don’t want to sweat. Most people around here don’t even dress right for the weather because they go from car to building and back. I’ve seen a guy at work going out on the linehaul with thin jacket and just a t shirt. I said dude are you nuts your not prepared to take a trip. He said I’m not gonna be out side at all which they aren’t. But he didn’t factor a breakdown in. If the junk truck breaks down you will freeze to death before the wrecker can get to you. People spend all this $ on shit they don’t really need and cut corners where they shouldn’t. No cotton poly cotton blend is ok.

        Thick blood brought about by hypothermia causes many problems within the body… Cardiac arrest is best avoided. Keep warm at all cost.

        Speaking of fireplaces and cold…..I’ve been shopping around for new homeowners ins. I’m having a hard time finding someone who will insure with wood stove as primary heat source. I wonnder if ins companies being influenced by spa.

    32. “The next 30 days could be pivotal” which means they won’t be. First a collapse is supposed to happen in September, then its supposed to happen in October, now august? Make up your mind. Nothing will happen, and if it does it’ll happen over decades. People say I suffer from “normalcy bias” but the only thing normal is reading about some fear mongerer making some prediction that NEVER turns out to be true. Y2K came and went, 2012 came and went, this will come and go. something else will come along and they’ll say well its really it this time ,just like it was countless times before, and it won’t be, but people will continue to listen because they want to live in fear.

      Interesting historical facts from the so called “civil war” in the U.S., facts not widely known and suppressed by the usual culprits can be read at whatreallyhappened.com titled: Judah Benjamin: The Big Jew of the Confederacy, by Mike King on Aug. 1 at 13:17 time. It deals with the Rothschilds and their support of the Confederacy. Two countries north and south both controlled by foreign interests, and the attempts to kill not only Lincoln, but others like the attack on Seward.

        I was dating a gal a couple years back. As we moved forward, I noticed that it was not gonna be a good match (which is why folks date in the first place). She always referred to this kind of news as “too depressing” rather than “what can I learn from this?” More and more she seemed like she would become more a liability than an asset. Coupled with other concerns, and we ended up parting ways. Any woman I date in the future has to have a self-sufficiency mindset.

        I read a few MGTOW site, by the way.

    36. For What It's Worth says:

      WE ARE SURVIVALISTS
      He who fails to prepare for the night, fails to prepare for the dawn.

      I am a survivalist and by nature a survivalist is an OPTIMIST. I do not
      have one pessimistic bone in my body. If what I just said sounds odd to you
      then you are not yet a survivalist and you do not understand the modern
      survivalist at all. It has been very difficult to communicate to the public
      and the mass communications media, the concept of an optimistic, hopeful
      survivalist.
      A fireman is a fireman, not because he believes everything will burn, but
      because he believes much can be saved. Doctors don’t believe in death, they
      believe in life, and a survivalist is not a survivalist because he believes
      everything must be destroyed and everyone must die, he believes that life and
      freedom can be saved, if people of good will are prepared. A fireman does not
      start fires, a doctor does not make disease and a survivalist does not make
      disaster.
      Crime, disease, war, revolution, fire, flood, periodic financial collapse
      and famine are the results of nature and the nature of man and unfortunately
      are not within the power of anyone on this earth to prevent.
      We all know that the sun will set each day, leaving us in darkness and we
      all know that warm summers give way to cold winters and that we can do nothing
      to keep the sun from setting ot the cold winds from coming, does this make us
      pessimistic? I think not! So then why is the survivalist called a pessimist
      when he makes ready to face events that are just as much part of history and
      nature as the sunset and changing of the seasons.
      Another misconception is that survivalists are predicting world disaster.
      On the contrary, we seem to be the OPTIMISTIC MINORITY that is predicting
      world survival. We are hard pressed to find any well recommended historians,
      economists, political scientists, sociologists or military strategists that
      can come up with a scenario that gives even a fifty-fifty chance of avioding a
      large scale catastrophe, yet we survivalist dare to be OPTIMISTIC about the
      future. We survivalists do not need to predict the probability of disater
      anymore than we need to predict the sun setting.
      Those who critize survivalists, are like men who refuse to look at a
      calendar, in the hope that through self-imposed ignorance they can keep from
      aging another year.
      “You survivalists will be disappointed if we don’t have a world cataclysm”,
      here is another accusation that is pure B.S. and I could not think of a milder
      phrase to describe it. We survivalists have loved ones we don’t want to see
      hurt or killed, we have homes we don’t want to see destroyed, we are not fools
      to think that just because we are survivalist’s a world cataclysm would be fun
      for us or the we would not experience danger, loss, hunger, injury, cold or
      even despair and death.
      We have spent time and money to improve our chances for survival and
      recovery from disaster, but we would have a great celebration if some day we
      could be assured that we had wasted our time. No, we will not be disappointed
      if there is no disaster to survive, anymore than the Red Cross is disappointed
      when there are no floods and storms or the man who buys an insurance policy is
      disappointed when his house fails to burn down.
      It may be said that the survivalist would much prefer the pleasant (but
      unlikely) surprise of being wrong to the (probable) deadly rude awakening that
      the nonsurvivalist will face if he is wrong.

      So, you see the survivalist cannot lose because his survival preparations
      will be of value regardless of what the future has in store. In time of
      crisis, those who have not prepared to turn to each other, will turn on each
      other.
      It is most regrettable indeed, that many people consider survivalists as a
      threat and regard them with suspicion and even hostility. This attitude is
      logically indefensible and is rooted in the nonsurvivalist own sense of fear
      and guilt. Subconsciously, the nonsurvivalist may hate the survivalist for
      reminding him of how fragile his lifestyle is. Now, let’s get the facts
      turned around right. THE MOST DANGEROUS PEOPLE IN AMERICA TODAY ARE THE
      NONSURVIVALISTS. Every person who has not made provisions for surviving
      without food, water, fuel and other essential needs from the outside, is a
      mortal danger to his neighbors.
      What will a man do when he and his family are freezing, hungry, thirsty,
      sick and starving? He may ask or beg his neighbors for help, but when they
      have no extra fuel, food, water or medicine to give, will he just go back home
      to die with his wife and kids? What do you think? We survivalists who stock
      up on food and other supplies, now do a favor to society because what we now
      buy is replaced on the shelves so there will be that much more available in an
      emergency. We survivalists won’t be looting and killing for food. We won’t be
      a burden on the medical facilities or a danger to the police. Since we will
      be able to turn to each other, we will not need to turn on anyone and we may
      be able to help at least some.
      Survival preparation should be regarded as a social obligation, one that
      every individual owes to his family and community and his nation. The
      nonsurvivalist is simply a poor and irresponsible citizen.
      So the reality is, that survivalists are optimistic, self-reliant
      individuals, who cannot help but see the imperatives of preparing for the worst
      possible events, while hoping sincerely, that they won’t happen. Today’s
      survivalist is an asset to his community and to the world and should be proud
      to be called SURVIVALIST.

      • Optimism leads to Stupidity and it could get ones self killed for having such a high confidence / ego.

        Nothing wrong with Confidence, in fact, it is very much encouraged. Optimism on the other hand is “hoping” you have the courage / confidence in doing something.

        Confidence – knowing you are doing right physically and mentally.

        Optimism – unsure, lack of confidence, hoping / praying, roll the dice, heads or tails, did I mention praying?

    38. Red Flag? So soon?

      America has been in a continual “state of emergency” since the 1930s when it defaulted on it’s debts and was acquired by the private international bank known as the Federal Reserve Bank in bankruptcy proceedings. The gold holdings were turned over as collateral for loans to the United States.

      Every President since Roosevelt has renewed this by Executive Order.

      The bankrupt state, known as the United States of America, is a shell corporation owned by the international banks and you are on the hook for the debts.

    39. Seems to be a lot of us posters talking about changing this or reforming that.

      There is nothing anyone on here is going to do. If you were gonna do something about it, you wouldn’t be posting on a blog, you would already be in action.

      And no, voting is no solution, as the liberal left policies are as bad as the righteous right policies. None of them understand the “life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness” concept. Not the military, not the cops, not the revenuers…they are all statists that truly believe the have the mandate to tell you what to do and how you should live your life.

      They can all get fucked.

      I just want to be left alone to live as I choose whereby if there is no victim there cannot be a crime.

      Oil is cheap. Those who made lots of money on it are getting their tails handed to them. Should see prices on stuff start to fall everywhere. So, lower prices on chinamart stuff and good (oil economy factory farms) and such ought to be good for Joe and Juanita Public, just in time for the coming election.
      Many including Barron’s are calling a Recession; but, if stuff is cheaper, that has to be a boom. We ought to see companies who’s profits are highly dependent on the price of oil making wonderful profits. Where are they?
