Editor’s Note: The signs of collapse are all around us. From naturally occurring phenomenon to man-made influence, one can’t help but notice that something just isn’t right with the world. Most people ignore the possibilities, often making up excuses for why they shouldn’t be preparing for a significant change to our way of life. But the evidence, as outlined in the following analysis by long-time SHTFplan Community contributor Be Informed, suggests that failing to prepare for it could have a horrific outcome

big-troubleIt is not just you that has seen that life has begun to stink for the human population around the globe.  Like a sick person there are symptoms of a much more aggressive underlying condition that can become or IS terminal.  Life is not just like it was a generation or two ago.  This is not just some sort of nostalgic longing for people’s youth.

Times have become strange, disturbing and frightening for most.  Even the most elderly and long lived of the people can tell you that during their lifetimes there has not been such a disconnect with the dreams of people and their futures looking bright.

A negative cloud hangs over human civilization and the following 50 examples show why we all should be quite unsettled.

1.  Fukushima.  This is a catastrophe that is poisoning the regional western Pacific Ocean that will become worldwide sooner than later unless repaired or contained.

2.  Bee and butterfly die off.  Butterflies are the canary in the coal mine warning of a toxic environment.  Bees are the difference between food and about 1/2 less the needed amount we all depend on if bees are not around to pollinate flowers.  Bees help fuel the agriculture industry.

3.  Genetically modified foods and poor unhealthy livestock.  We are not meant to eat frankenstein food that our bodies don’t recognize or don’t properly assimilate.  Eating animals that are shot full of chemicals or that eat GMO foods or other substandard feed is a human health problem starting with all forms of cancer.

4.  Lack of arable land.  At a certain point people won’t be able to grow enough food to feed the world.  This is normally reached at between 1500-2000 people per square mile of arable land.  Right now the world stands at about 1400 people per square mile of arable land.

5.  Antibiotic resistant diseases.  This is very serious for humans as a very contagious and highly fatal bacteria could wipe out massive numbers.  It is also an issue with animals on the farm and plant life people depend on to consume.  An agricultural blight would be just as devastating as centuries ago if uncontrollable.  People go hungry.

6.  Chemical poisoning of the water ways.  This is from the creeks to the streams to rivers and lakes to the ocean.  Clean water is necessary for health.  Food sources are being contaminated at a very alarming rates from toxins all around the world.

7.  Fresh water scarcity.  One only has to look to the American Southwest to see just how important fresh water is and what any drought can do.  Famine becomes more and more likely when someone cannot give crops enough water.  Cities can cease to function without enough water.

8.  Toxic processed foods being the normal staple people eat.  Junk food by any name, people become extremely malnourished which causes an overwhelmed health care system.  People simple don’t function well when they live on bad food.

9.  Super germs, both human, animal, and plant.  There are life forms in the plant and animal kingdom that go extinct all the time.  Recently Ebola has become more virulent, new diseases such as MERS shows an increase of the chance of a super pathogen killing off large percentages.

10.  Human beings becoming more frail.  Lack of good food, proper exercise, clean safe water and food has helped create a creme puff type of people.  These people lack hardiness and will wither in the face of any real hardship.

11.  Invasive introduction of species not meant to be part of certain ecosystems.  People continue to accidentally or on purpose bring in plants, animals, and germs into places that just can’t handle them.  Look at the Burmese Python snake in Florida that has decimated the animal life there.  Asian fish and mollusk species into American waters have caused horrible damage.

12.  Pharmacentical poisoning of humans.  MEDS, as people call them, have caused side effect after side effect and left exploding health care costs that have bankrupted individuals all over the place.  On top of this it has left the population in a state of being almost half dead.

13.  Over vaccinations.  There is still much debate over Autism and vaccinations being the cause, but why is it necessary to overtax our immune systems with every practical inoculation against every disease ever thought of?  Especially something someone has extremely little chance of ever catching?

14.  Difficulty in maintaining proper crop production.  In many areas the ground is no longer able to sustain itself because of over fertilizing creating a brine of salt and other minerals.  More and more already scarce water to help water down the soil becomes necessary.  Plants suffer disease and need even more fertilizer treatments to give out a decent crop.  These plants also need more pesticides.

15.  Expansions of human settlements into known disaster areas.  Much of these terrible calamities such as intense flooding can be avoided by proper planning and never putting buildings into known danger areas such as flood plains.  This expansion continues at an alarming rate each year.

16.  Little or no protection given to people’s businesses and homes from catastrophes.  Flood walls, buildings constructed to better withstand earthquakes, pre-established fire breaks, etc.  The whole country and other countries are mostly still at the mercy of Mother Nature because of lack of insight to safeguard property.  See #1 Fukushima.

17.  Crumbling infrastructure.  Someone can drive around and see all the bridges and roads in desperate need of repair or replacement.  The power grids and nuclear plants are at the top of the lists in need of help, and would cripple the country if and when they fail.

18.  Over populating urban areas worldwide.  This is a problem that is waiting to become a cataclysm should the economy collapse or other widespread disaster occur.  Large cities depend entirely on outside aid to continue to operate.  Without this, large cities die and with them most of the people that live there.  Congestion is adding much to the stress level of hundreds of millions from these concentrated number of people living like matchsticks on top of each other.

19.  Almost total inability of most people to adapt to harsh change.  A sudden drop off of “necessary” reliances have put most people on the brink of individual collapse when what they need is not there for them for days, weeks, months or longer.

20.  Failure of solutions and problems.  Like Fukushima, other big problems are lost for concern as there is a near universal acceptance of just living with it no matter how terrible it is.

21.  People depending on safety nets to bail them out of ALL circumstances.  So many now just know that no matter what happens, the government, FEMA, or other agency will save them.  People have become reliant on others that might or might not be there.  Setting up for failure.

22.  No monetary accountability.  As people care less and less, future financial disasters build up steam and are allowed to get worse.  New 2008-09 type economic collapses become more likely as phantom money and fudged numbers go by without much thought about what is really happening.

23.  Exploding debt.  The U.S. debt is following E to the X expansion in which inflation not only becomes hyper, but infinite and limitless.  This is the way expontential E to X works as the line of increase starts out gentle and almost flat and grows to almost 90 degree vertical increase.

24.  More percentage of world’s money in less percentage of the people’s hands.  Money simply means power, and less people have this power.  This means fewer people with more control over more people, a lot more control.

25.  Main stream media and government deception.  Most people are naive and even more so want to think everything is rosy and wonderful.  We are being fed a constant stream of information that doesn’t begin to scratch the surface just how awful things are and how close to everything falling apart life as we know it is.

26.  Lack of privacy and government intrusion into our lives.  Besides the drone problem, you just have to ask how much NSA and others pries into our private lives and makes honest good citizens into suspects of everything and anything.

27.  People wanting to be linked up to everything.  While people complain about the government looking in like peeping Toms at others’ lives, the public wants to be connected with everything.  This is opening all sorts of windows to everyone’s lives that they’d rather not have others observing.

28.  Credit cards and taking physical money from society.  Cashless societies means that every single thing someone purchases is monitored.  One thing bought could send your friendly neighborhood Gestapo to your door to see why you purchased what you did.  People depend more on plastic cards than anytime in history.  This also of course leads to bankrupt type debt from so many that are irresponsible with credit.

29.  Allowing a machine or government to do someone’s thinking for them.   People will not even act on anything anymore without asking their SMART phone to do everything for them.  They rather have those in authority tell them how to think and behave, it is far easier.

30.  Total dependence on technology and gadgets.  People cannot function the most rudimentry tasks or problems anymore.  Mental laziness is gripping this world.

31.  Lack of concern for anyone but oneself.  Self indulgence and living for the moment at other people’s expense.  Just look at the most popular word now filtering around the world, SELFIE.

32.  Worship and practice of weirdness and perversion.  There is a loss of wholesomeness that was once praised and admired.  The following of these music idols shows this all too well.

33.  Human self mutilations.  You look at some of the face jewelry that pierces their lips and cheeks that looks like some has been blasted by shrapnel and you wonder how anyone would want to look like they were hit by some suicide bomber.  A trendy look that is a frightening example of how much certain people dislike or hate their bodies and lives.

34.  Listlessness and stagnation of humans.  There is a strong lack of any drive in people anymore.  Like a sloth people just exist and wander around like zombies oblivious to much around them.

35.  Political correctness and conformity.  This is a plague, as people are losing their rights to say anything that might be offensive to anyone.  The First Amendent is dying slowly in front of our eyes.  It doesn’t matter how well thought out or true something is, only that NO ONE has hurt feelings from what is said.

36.  Taking people out of the decision making processes.  As technology grows so does the elimination of people.  This is not only job losses, but allows fewer and fewer to make important decisions in business, military, and everyday life.  It sets up for failure that is not easily correctable when the status quo does flop.

37.  Destruction of people’s rights as humans and as life forms to defend themselves.  Those that would attempt to control everyone by forcing their idealism of what means to be civilized is the taking away of people’s self defense all over the world.  Some areas even prohibit the use of your own personal body to save yourself from being brutally attacked.

38.  Numbness of other people suffering.  Even to the point of enjoyment of seeing others in pain, sadism is becoming more intense each day.  Music songs talk about this barbarism all the time.  Pain for everyone is the new norm that individuals are gravitating towards like a moth towards fire.

39.  People’s lack of convictions.  Just look at the 90% disapproval ratings given to the U.S. congress.  Each election cycle however the same politicians that get so much hate and flank are re-elected over and over again.  Most people talk and that is it.

40.  Indifference and falling apart of the family unit.  There has been, over the course of humanity, much strength and security in families.  This is dying off as families have grown so far apart that they interact only for short amounts of time each day with each other.  A common response to this is a cop out – we have to let others live their own lives.

41.  Escapism.  Human beings are so miserable with the horrors of the world that they take drugs, create fake worlds of fantasies in video games, and do anything they can to get away from it.

42.  Death of the human conscience.  This is one of the most distressing of human problems that there is.  People have lost that special side of them that defines wrong and right.  Morality is way more than what others tell you what is correct, it is knowing what is fair and just towards others.

43.  Widespread unhappiness, depression, despair, fear, anger, and hopelessness.  Those that choose not to escape from this, deal with this ugliness each day.  The stress level of so many is higher than anytime in history.

44.  Increase of rampant insanity.  Whether it is from brain chemistry toxins or just human beings losing it, lunacy is becoming commonplace everywhere.  Then 2nd Amendment rights are vilified and blamed on firearms rather than the person that needs mental help and would have used some other tool to murder others anyway.

45.  Loopholing of long established laws and freedoms.  All over the world peoples’ rights are being attacked by their government to gain more control.  This is fueled further by the majority of the population accepting and supporting this power grab.   Many in the U.S. actually want to rewrite the Constitution, something that has worked remarkably well for more than 200 years.

46.  Terrorism and other mass attacks becoming easier and easier.  With technological advancement comes the ability to manufacture very deadly weapons of mass destruction.  The worst of any of these are biological weapons that can kill millions or billions, not just directed at humans, but possibly at livestock and crops.

47.  Willlingness of countries to fight over less and less.  Natural resource depletion, especially fresh clean water, has always been a war starter.  Now with so much less to go around it has become an even larger issue.

48.  Many so called leaders now feel that nuclear war is winnable or the ONLY option.  Nuclear weapons are now on more of a hair trigger than they have been for decades.  Countries are itching for a fight like North Korea and China against Japan and South Korea. Those that are overmatched in conventional weapons feel they can make this up with nuclear warheads.  Human civilization is almost living on borrowed time with this one.

49.  Intensification of religious hatred.  In the past few years peoples’ disgust towards each other based on their religious belief has grown to the most dangerous level in decades and is continuing to get worse.  Look at all the examples of savage attacks based solely on someone’s faith every week.

50.  Lack of preparation by 99%+ of the population.  This is something that should be of grave concern to everyone.  People are simply not ready for the next human catastrophe, which will eventually come violently.

Number 50 is the most essential.  It is a simple choice by an individual if they want to have a chance to live for themselves and their families and see through a SHTF disaster, or die a hard ugly death.

There are countless more than 50 abominations that humans are rotting through now.  It is the choice of the individual to either attempt to do something about the storm that will come, or live in self denial that this could ever happen.

Do you live in a world where your government will come to the rescue like the cavalry? A world where you need not self prepare for anything because 9-1-1 calls will link help within minutes?

Or have you come to terms with the fact that, as we saw during Hurricane Katrina, you will be totally on your own and failure to prepare will leave you without food, water, or anything else necessary to survive?

A lot of problems with human civilization add up in the future to a collapse of most of everything we depend on.

The choice is up to each individual, as the signs of impending big problems in the future cannot be dismissed no matter how far in ground someone wants to bury the truth.

          Thought for the Day…

          Take Time

          Take time to pray…it helps to bring God near
          and washes the dust of earth from your eyes.

          Take time for friends…they are the source of happiness.

          Take time for work…it is the price of success.

          Take time to think…it is the source of power.

          Take time to read…it is the foundation of knowledge.

          Take time to laugh…it is the singing that helps with life’s loads.

          Take time to love…it is the one sacrament of life.

          Take time to dream…it hitches the soul to the stars.

        • Rodster says:

          If you read any of John Michael Greer from The Arch Druid Report. He has been saying and written several books that on the subject thatThe Industrial Civilization has begun the collapse and will probably enter the next Dark Age which could last several millennia.

          Civilizations have collapsed before and we are no different. The only wildcard is if TPTB decide to go nuclear.

          • The Moon is a Harsh Mistress says:

            Undoubtedly it will go nuclear before it is all over. History tells us that we never create a weapon that is not subsequently used.

            At the bottom of almost every one of those items on the list, either as direct causes or as second and third-order effects is overpopulation. This can be blamed on any number of reasons; there is no single cause of overpopulation but it is the root cause of almost every other modern ill. The one positive if one can call it that, is after the housecleaning of epic proportions of the human detritus has concluded, the survivors if there are any, will likely be far less sympathetic to commandments by religious fruitcakes to “be fruitful and multiply.”

            • Sebastion T. says:

              “Archaeologists have found evidence in India and Pakistan, indicating cities were destroyed in atomic explosions. When excavations of Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro reached the street level, they discovered skeletons scattered about the cities; just lying, unburied. Why did the bodies not decay or get eaten by wild animals? These skeletons are among the most radioactive ever found, on par with those at Nagasaki and Hiroshima, with radioactivity 50 times normal.”
              “Huge masses of walls and foundations of the ancient city are fused together, literally vitrified! The intense heat to melt clay vessels can only be explained by an atomic blast or some other unknown weapon.
              The cities were wiped out entirely.
              The massive ruins of a temple called Parshaspur can be found just outside Srinagar. It is a scene of total destruction. Huge blocks of stone are scattered about a wide area, giving the impression of explosive annihilation, 10,000 years ago.”

              • eppe says:

                makes one wonder about the ‘first earth age’, we are in our second as we speak….Harappa….

              • TPSnodgrass says:

                Subjective interpretation of what may or may not have happened in “Parshaspur” is merely faux-intellectual flatulence.
                This Earth has not nor is there empirical evidence, from any credible source that has found there was a prior civilization that used nuclear power, prior to the actual time line in which it was first developed.
                Rampant speculation of subjective non-critical thinking/dreaming does not qualify as any kind of evidence for which the population should concern themselves with.
                If one is trying to “channel” their inner/prior life form, hey, knock yourself out. Posting mental effluvium on a preparedness website does not lend any credibility to your hypothesis.(which is incorrect and false)

              • John W. says:

                Did the voices in your head tell you that tale? As silly as the blacks claiming that at one time they could levitate and fly.

              • Excellent BI, can’t believe you don’t have anything in there about earthquakes or volcanos… 😉

                I would suggest those who ridicule sebastion t’s, info here, read the 10,000 year old sanskrit texts, the Vedas.

                And the golden Vimana’s flew, and the arrows with fire from their tails released to fly, that exploded with the light of a thousand suns…

                Sounds pretty obvious to me, and the archeology is sound, just, like, anything else that doesn’t fit the narrative of linear time… it is ridiculed. Professors don’t like losing their grants or their cred…

                The ancients knew more than you give them credit for, and there is no new thing under the sun. The ancient indians are the source of something you use everyday… the Arabs copied it, and so did we… we call it; the Arabic number system…

                Survival of species, and knowledge that its happened before, is the ultimate survival knowledge, and should be a clue to those with closed minds. That the good guys need to band together, not split off into small groups. TO form survival alternate networks, not indian tribes that will revert to barbarians… like, seems to have happened before…

              • Chicken Biggy says:

                TP Snodgrass: Don’t you remember, that story was on the same channel one night right after midget wrestling. I set my recorder so’s I wouldn’t miss it.

            • Genius says:

              Moon, You are spot on!

            • Rodster says:

              The Moon is a Harsh Mistress says: “This can be blamed on any number of reasons; there is no single cause of overpopulation but it is the root cause of almost every other modern ill.”

              Actually there is only ONE cause for overpopulation. And that is “CHEAP OIL”. The birth rate exploded when cheap fossil fuels entered the Industrial Age. Cheap fossil fuels has made this all possible. Fossil fuels is virtually in everything we eat and buy from fruits and vegetables, toothpaste, cosmetics, motor oil.

        • laeagle says:

          BI,
          I was thinking about you when I heard about the 5.6 earthquake that hit northern Yunnan recently.

          The list is great and you are to be commended for coming up with the list. Thanks to you and thanks to Mac for publishing it. I would also add “The refusal or rejection of sound advice by so many people.” Really, this is at the core of many of society’s illnesses. Common sense is no longer common.

        • the renegade braveheart says:

          BI, another outstanding article and nothing in there I can ever dispute. My prepping is continuing and I trust that everyone else is doing the same.

          • Vicky says:

            We are, and will continue to do so up to the last minute. I just came in from outdoors and was struck by how beautiful (in my eyes) our place is, but still feel the sadness and terror mentioned in this excellent article. We are saddled with a conscience and I am always amazed at how rare that is, as well as total lack of common sense in the populace as a whole. It’s depressing to see how the evil Obama continues to thrive and the harm caused to innocent people. I know good is supposed to win out in the end, but will it this time?

      • Roman Citizen says:

        As a citizen of modern Rome, I now know how the citizens of ancient Rome felt. I hope that the citizens of the next Rome can learn from our mistakes and put in more safeguards than our founders did.

        • It’s not the founders’ fault. It’s the corrupt scions of the founders who lied, cheated and destroyed what they built. Mostly leftists.

        • The Moon is a Harsh Mistress says:

          Nothing that can be done by one generation cannot be undone by future generations. The Founders knew this and they did their best to bind the hands of future psychopaths who gravitate naturally to government like flies gravitate to a steaming pile of horse shit.

          The Founders also knew that their creation would eventually be abused and undone, hence necessitating frequent violent revolution to rid the swamps of government of these usurpers and tyrants. We are long, long overdue for a draining of the swamp of DC.

          • the renegade braveheart says:

            Moon, I couldn’t agree more. Today, I heard the news that Jim Brady, Reagan’s press secretary who was wounded in the assassination attempt in 1981, and later with his wife they became 2 of the biggest figures in the gun control aka anti-selfdefense movement, has died. I won’t shed any tears over him or miss him. According to the Bible, that last sentence is probably wrong, but I can’t help it. In the beginning after the attack I actually had some sympathy for him because he was a victim of a criminal attack. But when he and his wife later joined the gun grabbers are started Handgun Control, Inc. that was the straw that broke this camel’s back. I lost whatever respect I had for them. they turned into POS gun grabbers and have been working to do away with individual self-defense ever since. In my mind, anyone who tampers with self-defense in any way, shape, or form, is committing an act of treachery. If/when such actions cause the deaths of good innocent people it’s the same as being an accessory to murder. YOU JUST DON’T TAMPER WITH THE CONCEPT OF INDIVIDUAL SELF-DEFENSE, EVER! IT’S THE SAME AS TAMPERING WITH LIFE ITSELF! Sorry for the rant but I had to get this off my chest on top of having a bad first day back at work after my GA trip. At least my trip turned out exactly like I hoped for. May Jim Brady burn in hell forever. braveheart

            • Juliet6 says:

              Renegrade _ Your rant is the same s most others on this forum. I have also noticed that every radio announcement of Brady is followed by “…a gun control advocate..” yea, yea, yea, we know the liberal agenda. No one pointed out that Hinckly (sp) was a lib-fruit cake.

              As ex-Gi, the only gun control required is keeping the front sight in the critical mass.

              Watch your six all, the temp of the water keeps getting turned up.

              • sharonsj says:

                I got this info from various websites: Hinckley is described as a college dropout who thought shooting the president would impress actress Jodie Foster. He had no political motivations but was interested in white supremacist literature and became obsessed with the movie “Taxi Driver.”

                Here is a direct quote from some book: John began collecting guns as Bickle did in Taxi Driver…he “founded” an organization he called the “American Front” and termed it an “alternative to the minority-kissing Republican and Democrat parties.” This new political party was “for the proud White conservative who would rather wear coats and ties instead of swastikas and sheets.”

                That fact that you call someone you know nothing about a liberal means you are too stupid to find out even the basic facts.

              • Chick Dix says:

                Poor old Hinckley, he didn’t know Jodie Foster was actually a carpet muncher.

    • SolitaryMan says:

      Nice article, Be informed. I really liked it.
      My greatest fear is that when I die my wife will
      sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them.

      • Warchild Dammit! says:

        Solitary,would you forward her my contact # in case of your untimely death?!

      • Avid reader says:

        I would suggest you create a simple inventory control. Put a numbered hang tag on each gun then in a corresponding book write down the description of the gun, all the vital information that potential buyer would want to know and also a true FMV based upon todays date. Then, periodically update the FMV and any new info you may want to add. I have done this for all my guns. Just in case of my death my daughter will know exactly what she has and what its worth…not just what I paid for it. I have seen way too many survivors not know what dad or grandpa had…they just want $300.

        • Warchild Dammit! says:

          Avid,your not helping here!Actually,I agree with you but,well…..,still not helping!Should be done with all cars/scoots ect.,and for those that don’t,do your loved ones or at least ones you will leave your stuff to a favor and have a basic will.

          • Avid Reader says:

            Warchild…LOL, yeah I know what you are insinuating. I have acquired lots of good deals from survivors of deceased gun owners. Had the prior owners just done some basis inventory control I never would have gotten some of those great deals. I agree that for estate planning and planning for your loved ones you need not only have a will to cover who gets what, but even more descriptive information to convey what they are getting and the value of those goods. But then again, your dead so what do you really care how much your 1938 Luger S/42 sells for?

      You know, what gets me is people are allowed to have as many vicious dogs as they like– no permit required. These dogs DO attack people, sometimes, one’s own family members– kids, wives, grandchildren, babies in the crib… killing them, tearing off their faces, limbs, or whatever.

      Yet according to our stupid government we are not allowed to have a gun– a means of defending ourselves– unless we get a license. Dogs can be LETHAL WEAPONS!!!

      If someone is allowed to walk around with 2 pittbulls (no license required!) then why the hell do I have to get a permit to buy a gun?! As a female, who does not have the strenght to defend myself from vicious animals (including vicious human males!) I shouldn’t have to have a license to buy a gun!

      • Warchild Dammit! says:

        Anon,in many places in this country you don’t need a gun license,ironically these places for most part do require a dog license/tags what have you.A lot of the country you want to buy a gun,tis simple,you have the money,you buy it.Needless to say can see this changing on a executive order decree at any time,of course,many will ignore it.

      • The Moon is a Harsh Mistress says:

        I understand your issue with the license for a gun vs a pitbull or some other kind of dog; however permits for the defense of one’s life bother me far less than lack of permits to create life.

        In all places in this country, one does not need a license to create as many new lives as they are unable to care for. Heck, in all places in the world it is that way; maybe with the exception of China. I am not in favor of government telling one if they can have children or not, but I would strongly argue in favor of mandatory sterilization as a condition of taking public assistance of any kind. The decision to create a new life should come with all kinds of responsibilities and obligations attached, and if the parents are incapable of meeting these obligations, they should have their reproductive abilities removed until such time as they demonstrate they are responsible enough to care for any more offspring.

        • the renegade braveheart says:

          Moon, once again I have to agree. On self-defense I don’t recognize or follow any restrictions on self-defense. When I get into any situation where my life is in danger I will deal with the threat any way I consider necessary and I don’t care if my actions are legal or illegal. On sterilization for anyone wanting to get on the public dole aka our tax dollars, they either get sterilized or no gravy train. It’s insanity when these women go out and screw 10 different deadbeat males and have 10 different kids. I’m going to be crude for a change. Get those tubes tied up then they can go screw like rabbits. Plus, they don’t have the first clue about being parents. When the parents’ minds are just like their kids’ minds, you know we’re in serious trouble.

      • MXLord327 says:

        Anon – you make a good point. I know 4 girls that were attacked by dogs in their pre-teen years, to the point of permanent scarring, a couple of them were really bad. I do not know anyone other that has been shot by a licensed gun owner.

        We have dumb fucks for an electorate that voted for that dumb fuck to be president – twice.

        “The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their president.”

Plus, the elite are getting even richer and it is trickling down to the rest of us as the high inflation that is letting them strip mine the lower classes of wealth (note: money is not the same thing as wealth.)

      Sadly though, I DO think it’s all going to change, but it won’t be for the better. The next iteration of society will be one with far fewer freedoms and far fewer ways to make life comfortable. Whether there is a revolution or not, the next round of leaders will be sociopaths bent on accumulation of power and wealth for themselves. Long gone are the days when a nation could be ruled by men of conscience, morality and honor because long gone is the day when men of power look to God as the ultimate power. Instead, they see themselves as the ultimate power and arbiter of right and wrong. So, instead of another George Washington, we will get another Maximilian Robespierre, Joseph Stalin or Mao Tse Tung. May God have mercy on us all.

            Prep tip: If you have enough paper satans you could get a used 48 volt golf cart (lifted preferably) with a canopy and install solar panels on the top. Add an inverter and you have portable power to run tools etc. Most Club Car brand carts are 48 volts and have good power. Make a trailer for it and haul water, wood, supplies all with free energy. I have seen a guy that used one to tow his airplane around. Also a good idea to have a desulphator on the batteries to maximize life.

    • passinwiththewind says:

      I want to expand on this prophecy thing a bit.

      As a 20 year veteran of reading,researching, and trying to better understand prophecy from God’s word, I have come to the realization that we are truly living in the “last days”.

      This is not saying, I believe the world as we know it will disappear next month,next year, or in the next decade. i have my ideas and predictions that I will keep to myself at this time.

      What I do believe is that this is “Satan’s time”. He has but a limited and short time of being able to influence God’s children to follow him and his lies.

      He knows it, and is working “overtime” in getting things set up for his arrival, “de facto”, to earth. In his own body, that he will have disguised as Christ’s, aka- antichrist.

      Just look around, at the younger generation especially. Not much hope in their eyes. They look for acceptance by standing out with a body covered in piercings and tats, and clothing that reeks of uglyness, and perverseness.

      When they should be looking for acceptance from their Heavenly Father that gave them life, not their guidance by that evil one, that gives them lustful pleasures for things of the flesh, such as indiscriminate sex as homosexuals, and drugs, etc. Having unprotected sex before marriage and then feeling no shame in killing of that unborn fetus/life as, a result of those actions.

      It, the tribulation period, is coming during this generation of foolish people. Many say it is here now; maybe so, but it will get worse.

      Don’t get me wrong, there are a lot of smart and good folks left; and, many come to this SHTF site regularly.

      There just aren’t enough of us that are actually trying to do something about the world in which we live in; so…we do what we can to “prepare” for the coming troubles and personal tragedies that lie ahead.

      May the “force” (the force of truth) be with you all.

        Pissininthewind. – So why are you worried about any of this if God promised to save you and give you everlasting life if you believe? They been spewing that Godless end of time fear BS for 2000 yrs. Unshackel yourself from the Religious slavery will ya. No Bible or Jeebus is going to save you,Period. And you will end up in a dirt pile like everybody else, you are NOT anybody special and no better than and cow or pig on the farm, there is no heaven and there is no hell. Get over it. BrainHOGwash Religion is already bringing this planet down to its knees, Just look at the Genocide in Israel right now. Religion teaches Hate Greed and Jealousy. All evil. In the end it will be the smartest strongest and cunning, just like Darwin told you and show you with real evidence. Not some Babble Hoax pro-feces.

        • Yikes. I understand the insult, but do not understand your point. We prepare as Christians,mon ami, the same reason we go to work, buy fire insurance, etc. God doesn’t perform magic tricks, and expects us to act like adults. I also prepare for winter each year, and don’t expect God to magically make the snow disappear from my sidwalk…

          I would encourage you to unshackle yourself from your disbelief, and actually READ the Christian Scriptures you rant against. I have little doubt you have never read them – if I am wrong, please let me know. Otherwise, you should not comment out of intellectual ignorance of the primary literature. But, you ARE correct: Religion (man’s attempt to reach God, vs. Christianity, which is God’s attempt to reach man) is bringing the world down. This is primarily manifested in Islam, but even when people pervert Christianity to eliminate salvation by grace along, there are problems. (And please don’t give me that old “Inquisition” meme. Fyodor Dostoyevski more than ably answered that in The Brothers Karamozov, in the Grand Inquisitor chapter).

          In sum, very sad post. I recommend you do more reading and thinking on **your own**, including reading the New Testament on your own.

          • WhoWuddaThunkIt says:

            KJ Wrong. I was raised as a Christian went though all the class BS. I went to bible studies and realized this was all babble nonsense. Anybody who clings to 2000 year old superstitions needs to get their heads examined. WAKE up and take a breath of reality. Religions people will be the first to die when SHTF. b/c they are dumb gullible and naive. Religion is brain numb down massage therapy for those who are too lazy and dumb to understand science, physics, anthropology, world history, archaeology, math, DNA, Astrology, carbon dating and common sense. And in the end you will die like everybody else, your body will rot like every other creature on the earth when dead. You will only be a memory for the living. You are no more special than a mushroom in a field. So why do you prep if you are already promised to be saved. You should just sit back and smile and live in your religious fantasy bubble. How about you show me one person that was saved. And BTW/ if you were born in Iraq you would be studying the Koran, and killing anybody who was a Christian. You are a product of your dumbed down environment in which you were raised, again confirming its all BS. If you were born in china or Viet Nam you would be worshiping the Budda, and believe Christianity is fraud. Well its all fraud. Faith is nothing more than a set of brain washed beliefs with no proof or facts. Look up the word faith in the dictionary. But you preach faith. How stupid is that.

          @ wwti,

          First of all, I don’t “worry”, so forget that thought.

          Secondly; I am a born again christian. Christianity is a way of life, not a religion. i quit going to a building where there is organized religion practiced, many many years ago.

          You have done just that by your recent comments. When you started posting here regularly i thought you were an OK person, but i am not one to give my approval right away.

          So, i listened…..
          and, i listened some more…..

          i now have a good picture of you by your own words.

          You are a pathetic little man that has no sense of compassion and uses women, and most likely, anyone else that gives you half a chance to.

          You don’t believe in a loving and caring Heavenly Father or anyone else for that matter.
          By not accepting Jesus, you live for the devil.
          Maybe not proclaiming it, but you are a devil worshiper and if you don’t change your ways and get your heart right, there will be no eternity for you, because you will perish right along with the master of sin, Satan.

          So next time you want to preach your worldly views and satanic outcrys at someone, please do it where and to whom really gives a fat rats ass about you. Cause, it’s not me, “dumbass”. I’ve got plenty of folks to care about that have half a brain left. Evidently, you have burnt yours out on alcohol and drugs.

BTW/ it is a fact most people that believe in religion are not college educated, and mostly blue collar lower economic set of humans that have nothing else to cling to, so they cling to religion like a herd of sheep, following the shepherd of deceit, off the cliff.

            If you don’t think that wars are the fault of religions you should read the Old Testament. I don’t know if the races whom the Israelites exterminated at God’s behest were really given an option to vacate their lands or die, but I imagine you and I would react the same way to a bunch of foreign religious invaders indiscriminately slaughtering men, women, and children in the name of their God.

            Undoubtedly many wars promulgated in the name of religion have more secular origins, yet a cursory reading of the Bible or the Koran would reveal numerous instances of one group being ordered by their God to kill another in His name. And this cannot be denied; it is written in plain sight for all to see in the holy books of all the major religions.

        • passinwiththewind says:

          evidently my words of truth and wisdom have hit a nerve.

          I see the “mockers” of God’s word have made their little pitches for satan.

          As for me; I have made myself very clear about so-called religions. I was raised southern baptist. I had no choice about that as a kid. It taught me two things; the most important is believing in God and His Son Jesus Christ and praying for forgivness for acting stupid. The other thing is that a lot of that southern backwoods baptist teaching is wrong, based on ignorance and a lack of education by preachers and teachers. Most have done the best that they could, at the time, so i don’t blame them.

          It is not a sin to be ignorant or poor, but it is a sin to stay that way.

          I don’t cut anyone any slack, especially when they have as much pride and stupidity as many who say there is no God, and mock Jesus Christ and christianity/salvation.

          All the religions of the world packed into one little package can’t “save” a person’s soul, nor give forgiveness. All that comes from above, and it ain’t called religion.

          You will never win an arguement with me about salvation/christianity or the bible; because, I am armed with too much truth and knowledge, that can’t be disputed.

          I really don’t care about winning a pissing contest, with you or anyone; because, it isn’t my job to care about winning. It is my job to put forth truthful information.

          What a person does with it is their own business!

          The mockers will have their day when they bow down before the Master. That day will come as sure as the Sun rises and sets. It isn’t some power trip I get by saying that; it’s God’s word, that lasts for eternity.

          This site will disappear, as well as all the worldly shit along with the bling, tats, and body piercings; but our Heavenly Father’s Word lasts forever.

            Hitler’s involvement with the Church:

            a) Hitler was baptized as Roman Catholic during infancy in Austria.

            b) As Hitler approached boyhood he attended a monastery school. (On his way to school young Adolf daily observed a stone arch which was carved with the monastery’s coat of arms bearing a swastika.)

            c) Hitler was a communicant and an altar boy in the Catholic Church.

            d) As a young man he was confirmed as a “soldier of Christ.” His most ardent goal at the time was to become a priest. Hitler writes of his love for the church and clergy: “I had excellent opportunity to intoxicate myself with the solemn splendor of the brilliant church festivals. As was only natural, the abbot seemed to me, as the village priest had once seemed to my father, the highest and most desirable ideal.” -Adolf Hitler (Mein Kampf)

        I’ve come to the conclusion that we as people are so detached from one another that a paradox is the only thing that makes sense to all the strife, we know longer see the same things and have no common ground to speak of.

        The question that remains is how do we find commonality in a world so divided?

          we find commonality by one or the other faction killing of their rivals until those of opposing viewpoints have been eliminated. That is the way it has always been done from the earliest men to the present age.

          Commonality will be imposed from the top down or it will be created organically from the bottom up, but one way or another this imbalance that now exists will be corrected.

          Actually, Joseph Stalin was raised by a “very religious” mother in a Christian household. He was named after St. Joseph. His mother wanted him to become a priest. Stalin himself said he was “damaged by violence” from being raised in a “priest-ridden household”. It was an abusive environment.

          The founders and leaders of Communism we’re not raised by Atheists, but in predominantly Christian and Jewish households. This goes for Stalin, Marx, and Trotsky.

        Once a Doctor told me I might die in six months if I did not follow her instructions. I told her we all had to die sometime. You could have lit a smoke off her forehead. Maybe medicine and religion have interactive interfaces where you die and you go to hell. Hahahahaa. If you do not follow procedure.

        Don’t know for sure for I have three more months to go to prove her wrong.

        • Navy Vet says:

          Sling … I know what you mean about doctors. From all of the interactions that I’ve had with a bunch of them over the years, most are not interested in curing what ever’s wrong with you. They think they’ve done their job by consulting their “Standard of Care” book which tells them what drug to dispense for a given symptom or set of symptoms.

          God forbid you should ask them a question to defend either their diagnosis or the drug that they want to prescribe. I have been having a problem with one of my ankles for over twenty years, that to this day not one of the five doctors that I’ve consulted has been able to diagnose what the real problem is. An orthopedist that I was referred to early on wanted me to start taking Celebrex which had just been identified as causing dangerous heart problems. I asked him why, when x-rays, MRI’s, CAT scans and a scope procedure found no obvious problems like arthritis or torn ligaments, he was making this recommendation in light of the recent drug findings. His response was “Hey, I give this stuff to my father”. I got up, thanked him for his time and left.

          I still have problems off and on with it. I’ve found that when I eat certain foods that can contribute to inflammation, my ankle flairs up. I try to avoid these, but it means giving up some stuff that I really like, BACON being one them.

          The biggest problem that I find with doctors is their arrogance in thinking they’re always right and shouldn’t be questioned. They’re so smart that they’re stupid.

          • slingshot says:

            I get the same feeling as, are they meeting a quota or pushing a new drug. I also have a problem with swelling and like you, bacon is a culprit. All this crap about saving lives with upper and lower GI’s. This food or that food or vitamin. The best thing is to hang around young people and have fun. Not become like a hypocondreact or a germaphobe. When they get you in the mode of seeing the doctors all the time, they will find something, because you are getting old.

            Seek a nutritionist, Navy Vet, or a chiropractor. Going to a doctor is like playing Russian roulette: maybe they will help you, maybe they will make it worse… they may cure you…or… they may kill you.

            Chiropractors and healing through nutrition are non invasive like medical treatment you get from a doctor, with no harmful side effects. The ads on TV for medicines are hilarious! The side effects are much, much worse than the original condition they are trying to treat! Also, read books about the horribly corrupt pharmaceutical business!!

            • Navy Vet says:

              Anon … I’ve done a lot of research about nutrition over the years. That’s how I discovered the food/chemicals/inflammation link.

              I agree that the adds for drugs, where ever you find them, usually list a whole lot of side affects, some of which are potentially life threatening, and at least sound a lot worse than the condition that the drugs are purportedly trying to treat.

              I’ve also done a fair bit of reading about the corruption in the FDA/Pharma/US Congress links. Makes me want to puke that our elected reps have such little regard for the harm that these companies can do to us with the the cooperation of the people that we elect to look out for us. Then they’ll have the nerve to say “who, me?” when the hemp and pitch fork parties start. I just hope that I’m still around to.see it.

              As far as nutritionists go, I consider them part of the medical establishment, who for the most part are lost without their play book and couldn’t find their way down a well with a map and a flash light. But that’s just me. Maybe there are some good ones out there. I just haven’t had much luck with them.

              There is a reason they aren’t able to prescribe narcotics and such. They can help with some holistic advice if it is in their minds to, but be careful of what you listen to from any of them.

        As a follower of the Holy Noodle, I belong to the one true faith and the only one of the major religions that does not advocate it’s members slaughter others in it’s name. Pastafarians have never had an Inquisition or forced others to convert to Islam or die; we don’t threaten our neighbors with nukes or stone adulterers. Even our admonition to the faithful to build pirate ships is not because we want to do violence to others, but because we are trying to save the world from global warming, of which there is a direct correlation between the rise in global temperatures over the past several hundred years and the decline in the number of pirates worldwide over the same time period. Therefore an increase in the number of pirates will reverse global warming and save humanity!

          America was not founded on Christianity, as many uniformed declare.

          Just read the Treaty of Tripoli of 1797:
          Art. 11. As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion,—as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility, of Mussulmen [Muslims],—and as the said States never entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mahometan [Muslim] nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.

          This was ratified by 100% unanimously by Congress and signed by the president John Adams.

          • @WWTI

      U.S. HISTORY TAKES DRASTIC LEFT TURN THIS FALL
      AP course ‘rewrites America’s past, cuts out Founding Fathers’

      “High-school history teachers nationwide will give their top students a dark retelling of U.S. history this fall, courtesy of the College Board, a nonprofit college readiness firm led by Common Core architect David Coleman.

      The College Board – which administers AP (advanced placement) courses and tests – is rolling out a revised curriculum framework for AP U.S. history, offering the 450,000 students who take AP U.S. history classes a hero-free account of America’s deeply stained past.”

      Peter Wood, president of the National Association of Scholars, calls the new AP U.S. history framework “a briefing document on progressive and leftist views of the American past,” one which “weaves together a vaguely Marxist or at least materialist reading of the key events with the whole litany of identity group grievances.”

We all are very near them, and we know this first hand, we see our government and how they are preparing themselves, and when I say themselves, I mean they the family’s of the government workers are being equipped with everything from underground shelters to weapons and ammo. I personally know the guards that protected the Bush family while they were down in South America on a end of the world farm that they have equipped with everything underground. He told me of how the Bush family secret services slaughtered an innocent family who lived nearby who had accidentally stumbled upon the shelters being built. They did away with anyone that might see where exactly they will be when the end arrives. The Bush family along with other elitest of the world are hiding out all around the world. killing innocent people(natives) and taking entire mountains and wooded areas for themselves to hide from what is coming in the sky.

      I hear about the elite planning for the collapse and building shelters for themselves. Somehow, I doubt it will turn out the way they plan.

      First of all, most of them do not have the skills and mindset for long term survival in a collapse. Most of them are highly dependent on technology and minions to maintain their lifestyle. Where will they be when this disappears (even if they have an entire pre-stocked city of supplies)?

      Secondly, they are used to hoards of minions protecting them and doing their bidding. How long until the minions realize that the people they are protecting are sitting on hoards of supplies? How long until there is a shift in power and someone else takes over? It makes for a scenario of factions battling it out over ever decreasing supplies.

      It would then be interesting to see reality set in but I would rather not see it up close. I am glad they are building places far away from me.

    The author can speak for himself.

    Some of us still have our heads screwed on straight. We:

    1. Don’t watch ANY of the filth that permeates the TV schedules these days. Which doesn’t leave much to watch, even with dozens of channels from which to choose.
    2. Still go to and show respect for church on Sundays.
    3. Don’t allow any of the pop culture degradation into our home, such as the latest obscenities in language.
    4. Still treat soda like a treat, not a daily diet supplement.
    5. Still treat store employees with courtesy.
    6. Still stare at freaks in public, but continue on our way while assiduously avoiding them.
    7. Still respect our elders.
    8. Don’t make jokes about illegal drugs, or speak about it lightly as if it were a non-serious matter.
    9. Still get our back up when asked by a medical professional if we use “recreational drugs.”
    10. Still refuse to answer all of the questions on questionaires.
    11. Still refuse to participate in unsolicited surveys.
    12. Still put our hand over our heart when the national anthem is played at a public function.
    13. Still vote at each and every opportunity and treat our ballot with the secrecy to which we are entitled.
    14. Still read the news about what is going on in the outside world.
    15. Still have a special Sunday family dinner.
    16. Still relish having a good John Wayne movie to watch on TV.
    17. Still view obvious pimps and prostitutes in public with disdain, NOT pity.
    18. Still refuse to be waited on in stores and restaurants by staff with nose rings, weird piercings, or heavy coverings of tatoos.
    19. Still get dressed up and presentable when going out in public, even for simple grocery shopping.
    20. Still object to unruly kids in public.
    21. Still respect police officers.
    22. Still exercise caution when driving in a parking lot.
    23. Still voice our opinion but always with respect and dignity.
    24. Still take pride in being frugal.
    25. Still value education.
    26. Still know what a Communist talks like and acts like.
    27. Still look with disapproval on mothers of illegitimate children.
    28. Still refuse to have a debit card.
    29. Still keep our home clean, neat and tidy, and take pride in doing so.
    30. Still do things the old fashioned way whenever possible.

    Yes, fossils like us still exist. We are called the silent majority, and like it or not, we ARE the majority. Were we not, the country would not be functioning.

    So don’t kid yourselves, the Communists, welfare parasites, freaks, druggies and assorted other filth are just a very vocal and obnoxious minority. When Obama goes, so shall their influence.

    Carry on.

    How many of us have to work 3 plus months per year, just to line the Rothschild’s pockets………..100% of the Federal Income tax goes directly to the deficit…..which is a fancy term for the money we owe these folks for printing our money, charging us face value for said money, and then charging us interest on top of that…….now you see why JFK got clipped…..he was going to put a stop to their Golden Goose……or the Fed, which is the greatest money making device ever conceived…………..

          Religion

          “Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, & the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people.” – Karl Marx

          “Organized religion is a sham and a crutch for weak-minded people” – Jesse Ventura

          “Humanity without religion is like a serial killer without a chainsaw.”
          — unknown

          “We must respect the other fellow’s religion, but only in the sense and to the extent that we respect his theory that his wife is beautiful and his children smart.”
          — H. L. Mencken

          “Men never commit evil so fully and joyfuly as when they do it for religious convictions”
          — Blaise Pascal

          Faith

          “Faith is believing something you know ain’t true.” – Mark Twain

          “The way to see by faith is to shut the eye of reason.” – Benjamin Franklin

          “The church says the earth is flat, but I know that it is round, for I have seen the shadow on the moon, and I have more faith in a shadow than in the church.”
          –Ferdinand Magellan

            In case you have never seen these; Robert Heinlein on religion.

            “One man’s theology is another man’s belly laugh.”

            “Faith strikes me as intellectual laziness.”

            “Sin lies only in hurting other people unnecessarily. All other “sins” are invented nonsense. (Hurting yourself is not sinful — just stupid.)”

            “Christ was crucified for preaching without a police permit”

            “Men rarely if ever dream up a god superior to themselves. Most gods have the manners and morals of a spoiled child. ”

            “History does not record anywhere at any time a religion that has any rational basis. Religion is a crutch for people not strong enough to stand up to the unknown without help. But, like dandruff, most people do have a religion and spend time and money on it and seem to derive considerable pleasure from fiddling with it.”

            “The most preposterous notion that Homo sapiens has ever dreamed up is that the Lord God of Creation, Shaper and Ruler of all the Universes, wants the saccharine adoration of His creatures, can be swayed by their prayers, and becomes petulant if He does not receive this flattery. Yet this absurd fantasy, without a shred of evidence to bolster it, pays all the expenses of the oldest, largest, and least productive industry in all history.”

            “Almost any sect, cult, or religion will legislate its creed into law if it acquires the political power to do so.”

            “Secrecy is the keystone to all tyranny. Not force, but secrecy and censorship. When any government or church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, “This you may not read, this you must not know,” the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives. Mighty little force is needed to control a man who has been hoodwinked in this fashion; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, whose mind is free. No, not the rack nor the atomic bomb, not anything. You can’t conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him.”

    colloidal silver may not be the answer for ebola… but rather very high doses of vitamin C…

    http://www.jimstonefreelance.com/ebola.html

    • Sebastion T. says:

      “Ebola virus so rapidly and totally metabolizes and consumes all available vitamin C in the bodies of the victims that an advanced stage of scurvy is literally produced after only a few days. In the classic form of scurvy that evolves very slowly from the gradual depletion of vitamin C, the immune system is compromised enough for infection to claim the patient’s life before extensive bleeding occurs. Hemorrhagic fevers usually attack populations low in vitamin C.”
      “Though scurvy is seldom fatal as a primary condition, scurvy represents only a partial deficiency of vitamin C; the body still has a LOT of vitamin C compared to zero, which ebola causes. Absent ANY vitamin C, blood vessels become very weak and start to lose blood, and platelets are unable to trigger clots. So death by ebola is caused by massive internal bleeding, which can be stopped simply by taking enormous doses of vitamin C until the immune system kills off the virus.”

I know that His religion is the one true religion because all peoples and cultures accept noodles with no religious or cultural prohibitions on the free ingestion thereof.

          I know when I die, I will be with Him again and enjoy endless beer volcanoes and stripper factories for all eternity. Can others say this about their God and their Heaven? Muslim men only get 72 virgins, and no beer in their paradise; Christians don’t get virgins or beer. And Hindus have the misfortune to just be reincarnated endlessly, returning to this hellhole over and over for eternity. Truly, His Noodliness is a beneficent and kind God.

    12. Pharmaceutical poisoning of humans.

    This is a *huge* problem for the general populace whether they admit or not. There is not *one* drug on the market that does not have significant ‘side-effects’.

    Some of those side effects are even labeled casually as ‘death’. Death- is not a side effect…it’s DEATH.
    People are slowly and systematically being poisoned by the food, water and air…and they don’t seem to care.
    Like the girl in the Red T-shirt on the left hand of this site says-
    “I used to care. I take a pill for that now.”

    Almost ALL of these ‘pills’ and so-called medications pass through the human endocrine system and end up in our water supplies…to be consumed by *everyone*. Water Treatment plants simply cannot or do not filter them out. That means we are ingesting small and continual doses of painkillers, steroids, amphetamines, Viagra and even rat poison.

    THE LOVE STORY OF RALPH & EDNA

    Just because someone doesn’t love you the way you want them to, doesn’t mean they don’t love you with all they have.
    Ralph and Edna were both patients in a mental hospital. One day…
    While they were walking past the hospital swimming pool, Ralph suddenly jumped into the deep end. He sank to the bottom of the pool and stayed there.
    Edna promptly jumped in to save him. She swam to the bottom and pulled him out.
    When the Head Nurse Director became aware of Edna’s heroic act, she immediately ordered her to be discharged from the hospital as she now
    considered her to be mentally stable.
    When she went to tell Edna the news, she said, “Edna, I have good news and bad news.” The good news is you’re being discharged since you were able to rationally respond to a crisis by jumping in and
    saving the life of the person you love.
    I have concluded that your act displays sound mindedness.
    The bad news is, Ralph hung himself in the bathroom with his bathrobe
    belt right after you saved him… I am so sorry,… but he’s dead.”
    Edna replied… “He didn’t hang himself, I put him there to dry.”
    “How soon can I go home?”

    #55…KNOWING THE ENEMY

    Do you know who your real enemy is? You should, for he has a very active part in your life; you are enslaved to him and do not even perceive it. He ultimately holds the note on your car and home, he sets the price for your food and oil. The interest rate for your money which you have allowed him to use to make more money.

    He makes your laws, runs your country’s war machine, he makes Presidents, and “pro choice” laws; he stirs racial animosity, he is the guarantor on your insurance policies, he is also your taxer.

    He tells you what to think and say, and then sets up the apparatus (Political Correctness) to condemn and punish you when you disobey.

    There is nothing in your life that he does not control. He corrupts your churches, he takes away your crosses from government lands that you fund, he takes God out of your schools, and inserts ‘alternative lifestyle’ reeducation in is place. He is your master and yet he seem invisible.

    He has muddled your history books, omitted the truth and inserted lies. He drew the Christian nations into war against each other in the World Wars. He forments wars and revolutions–he is above all a revolutionary–for his credo is “Destroy everything, whatever is, is wrong”.

    He poisons your children with unsafe and unnecessary drugs and inoculations, he poisons (sedates/makes docile) you with flouride in your water, emasculates your men with feminizing hormones in your plastic food containers and masculinizes your women with chemicals.

    He is behind the women’s movement, the racial integration laws, the Social Welfare System. He is above all a Bolshevik, Marxist, Socialist COMMUNIST.

    And that is not all he has done to you. His motto is “Out of Chaos, Order”. Thus he must destroy your world so that he may rise from its ashes. “Pluralistic chaos, out of which the Phoenix of the New World Order can rise, ressurected from the ashes of the mysteries of the past”.

    He above all promotes social reforms, for they all play into the hand of destroying everything that was once holy, true, and good.

    He is a friend of the gay, the lawless, the Atheist, the criminal. He shall make your world theirs. He is the enemy of Christianity, God, and Jesus Christ, he seeks to make the world his own along with his god, satan.

    He attacks every tenant of your Christian Bible, yet he is esteemed as the chosen of God by the ignorant and indifferent,

    The Bible paints a very different picture of these people and their great ancestor Satan, the serpent of old. Gen 3: 14-15.

    The “Kenite” is everything spiritually and moraly vile. Don’t cry for his safety, he wants most people on this earth dead. And in the end, for a little while, his god and father Lucifer shall rule the world–then Christian beware, you have absolutely not seen anything yet by comparison Matt 24: 21-22.

    Will we be able to harm and hinder them? You couldn’t. You can’t, he already possess you, what can a slave do to the master?

    Only God can set things straight, and he shall at the appointed time. Just open your eyes, try to protect your loved ones until that time…..prep and pray.

The amount of hate you harbor towards people is hardly what anybody would expect from a ” good” Christian. It’s downright poisonous.

        Hey Anonymous….from one Anonymous to another. Hate? Are you that stupid? No you folks always cry when someone tells the truth. I bet you call killing of the children and women a joy. I bet you cal sucking the blood out of banking through control of the money supply a game. Oh well…I guess you now call me a hater as well.

          Well anonymous, I just find you extremely ignorant to swallow klan type preachings as ” Gods Word”. Are YOU really that stupid? Sounds like it from your comments pal.

          • Anonymous says:

            I am not your pal. Klan type is what the ZOGs are. BTW…you need a higher IQ vs your current peanut size to understand what the truth tellers are saying. Have you checked the European demonstrations lately against your tribe? Oh well if you didn’t then just wait since it is coming to your door step soon.

              ” Pal” is NOT a term of endearment idiot, it’s sarcasm. I wouldn’t have klan members or Nazis as friends. Second, when some stupid hillbilly tries to tell me who the ‘ truth tellers’ are by selective stories published by neo Nazi websites, well, I have to admit I AM a LITTLE skeptical. Oh, and you might like to know I’m NOT Jewish, just somebody who doesn’t swallow ignorant southern Baptist hillbilly nonsense. Put THAT on YOUR doorstep, PAL!

      Absolutely awesome,p.o. granny.

      Truth spoken in every sentence.

      It is a shame that people like Grafique, that claim to be christian, can’t see the forest for the trees.

      Just because most of the evil that we are faced with comes from the factions “that calls themselves jews, but are of the synagog of Satan” can’t be singled out by most, doesn’t mean they don’t exist within the jewish christians.

      They mingle and mix in as the Judas Goat. There are some true jewish christians and that is a whole different set of peoples, but the bad element from the Khazar/Russian/German/Kenite bloodlines are predominate. They are put in place by Satan and are “not” the jewish workings of God.

    The answer to #24, which I take to mean the concentration of the planet’s Wealth in 2.5% of the wealthiest individuals and families, has a solution: tax wealth, not merely income.

    When WE as a COLLECTIVE species do THAT, then the other 49 things can begin to achieve equitable, just, and fair resolution, because most if not all of those 49 things were foisted on us by a chief weapon of Satan which is control and his human allies = those people who carry out his directives, often by deception, because Satan will not show those people exactly the myriad tortures that await them in Hell for eternity.

    Greed and sin– both individual and collective– have blinded us to two things: one, the fact that the Earth belongs to the Lord and is intended for all 7.5 billion, not the 5% wealthiest who describe the rest of us as “useless eaters”, and two, that only by joining together to use Gandhian Force, the force of the Truth, can we liberate humanity. I fear, though, it might be too late. For example, instead of suppressing genetically MODIFIED cancer-causing food, they suppressed free energy inventions.

    Only God can judge the PERSON; I only attempt to judge BEHAVIOR– that which I have listed and BI’s list.

    We ARE in the end times. Each of us CONTINUES to SENSE that:

    – The Antichrist is about to announce himself.
    – Currency may indeed collapse to make way for the Mark.
    – A global pandemic threatens to empower the elected lunatics to control, segregate, and kill us all.

    Therefore:

    FIRST, we must repent and prepare our souls since death might arrive by Asteroid, Tsunami, Earthquake, Nuclear War, &/or a man-made Pandemic Virus.

    SECOND, we must prepare as though all electricity becomes destroyed, currency collapsed, and food becomes scarcer.

    THIRD,, we must think as a Master Chess Player: ANTICIPATING the moves of the Destroyers (they come in all types of uniforms and all forms of disguise, some elected) and OUTTHINKING them to elude and evade them.

    FOURTH, we MUST pray (yes, even for our enemies, so their souls are not lost to the fires of Hell for eternity) and we MUST pray to and trust Almighty God Himself.

    Come, Lord Jesus, Come!

    25 Critical Facts About This Ebola Outbreak That Every American Needs To Know

    (Submitted by Michael Snyder of The Economic Collapse blog)

    What would a global pandemic look like for a disease that has no cure and that kills more than half of the people that it infects? Let’s hope that we don’t get to find out, but what we do know is that more than 100 health workers that were on the front lines of fighting this disease have ended up getting it themselves. The top health officials in the entire world are sounding the alarm and the phrase “out of control” is constantly being thrown around by professionals with decades of experience. So should average Americans be concerned about Ebola? If so, how bad could an Ebola outbreak in the U.S. potentially become? The following are 25 critical facts about this Ebola outbreak that every American needs to know…

    I would like to thank you everybody that complimented the article, and those that didn’t like it I wish you had. There are so many other reasons why all of us need to prepare, so at least we have a fighting chance when the hammer comes down. Even people with a simple month’s worth of food and supplies will at least not immediately see their family starving to death and gasping for water from dehydration. There are very poor people that see what is coming and do there very best with the meager amounts that they have. They should be very commended.

    Sometimes it takes articles like this to wake up people that may read it and say, yeah maybe I should be getting ready. We can all just hope for their sake and the human civilization that enough people will prepare and be ready to face what is coming.

    By the way Thank You Mac for always making articles like this by me and others look so classy on your site.

        Right, anyone who doesn’t like to be spoon fed the same old doom porn on a daily basis is a damn fool. Maybe they just choose to live free from fear and paranoia. Try giving up this site for a month or two, than come back and see for yourself the 60 stories of impending doom have not happened. How many times were we have to gone to war with Russia already? 10? 20? How many times was the currency supposed to collapse and have bread cost 1000 bucks per loaf, with people resorting to cannibalism? It’s interesting that these claims NEVER materialize but that somehow reinforces the belief that it’s inevitable, but of course nobody will EVER give a time frame, it’s ALWAYS going to happen SOON, but never quite gets around to happening.

  56. Patriot Mom says:

    Forget Katrina! Hurricane Sandy should have been that last ditch wake up call, with old people standing on the corner begging for FEMA to come help them. Remember that elderly woman, begging, “People are dying out here… you HAVE to get a truck on the corner”.

    That was aired on CNN repeatedly for at least a week. Why in the world no one paid attention and gave thought to prepping their own water is beyond me, and then the water crisis in Toledo hits and no one is prepped. Once again, people are going crazy, standing in long lines for water, leaning on big daddy govt to take care of them.

    And after that, most people will still live in their bubbles, taking their daily SELFIE, posting to instagram or facebook and pretending that obama’s “got this”.

    I throw my hands up and feel frustrated from all that I see. I was born in the wrong century. I don’t belong in this era at all. I have strong morals, strong convictions, and I believe in hard work. I believe in responsible gun ownership and treating your neighbors and people with respect. I believe that people shouldn’t go out in their pajamas and slippers to go shopping and take care of things. I believe women should wear decent clothes and take care of themselves. I could go on and on. I was raised this way by my parents, who worked for every penny they had, two blue collar workers in a factory. We never wanted for anything, and they never saw the inside of a welfare office.

    I’m not very old, I’m 46. But I still see this world around me as crumbling into moral decay where welfare is an acceptable lifestyle choice. I see people my age who don’t even care, or want to work for what they have. They literally rather live at home with their elderly parents, than work for what they have, and that age bracket is stretching into people in their 30’s and 20’s. I find it appalling when I look over and see a 20 something, young healthy looking man taking SNAP. Ever hear of working? Sorry, but to me, welfare is a hand UP not a lifestyle choice and living off the backs of others is immoral. Unless you are disabled, one of our honored vets, or elderly…. there’s no excuse for anyone to not work.

    Everyone wants it easy and fast. I know women my age and younger who don’t know how to cook, they can barely operate a microwave. It is scary… very scary.

    I could rant on and on so I’ll just stop here. This article was 100% dead on.

    HOME LAND SECURITY WARNS:
    (AMERICA WILL LOSE POWER)

    Weather by an EMP or CME or a Grid Down Terrorist Attack, WE WILL LOSE POWER and soon. And No matter how we loose power WE COULD BE IN THE DARK FOR YEARS, EVEN FOREVER
    See how can show you how to prepare for such an event and when you lose power you will be sitting in your home with lights and power. I live in a large 5 bedroom home that is all electric with a big chest freezer and 3 teenagers who all have large TV’s, DVD Players, Game Consoles and more. My smallest power bill was $67.00 and my average is about $100.00 per month. When I loose grid power to my home the only way I can tell is by looking at the street light across the street to see if it’s lit or not.
    I have a 12 volt system that charges a bank of batteries and from that I run almost all my house lights, inside, outside and in my basement. I have a 12 volt coffee pot, a 12 volt Evaporative “Swamp” Cooler to cool my home, a 12 volt alarm clock and a 12 volt electric blankets to keep us warm on cold winter nights. I even have a 12 volt Plastic Pail Hot water heater to make me FREE hot water from wasted energy that would otherwise be dumped and wasted. I even have an Aquaponics set up that grows fresh fish and fast vegetables to eat and that is powered by 12 volt as well.
    Let me show you how I did all this and you can do the same as me. (This is NOT a Grid tie system, my system works independently of your grid power).
