Yesterdays post was kinda all over the place, but that is where my thoughts are of late.
I see many people getting angry at what they are seeing and feeling from on high (or is down low with the district of criminals?) and what they are ‘receiving’ from the Gov (IE, that little dig deeper that everyone witnessed in their recent pay stubs since the first of the year.)
One of the thoughts goes back to a statement that my dad has made on occasion and recently repeated in my presence. “They need to do away with the two party system. They do nothing but bicker and never accomplish anything.” (Yeah, I know and I can tell you that I have about chewed a hole in my cheek those times he has said it) Sadly, I see two names but in essence, only one party. The bickering is all smoke and mirrors for the political entertainment factor and to provide ‘viable excuses’ for the unintended consequences they never truly plan for.(other than knowing that it will happen)
I have said, others have said it better, and there is a book out there that says it all in such a way that there should be no question what to do. Starve the beast! To do so is simple, but it requires a resolve to carry it forward once you start. And the first step is to say “NO!”. Find alternatives to current sources of income if you can. Try to find like minded people that are also saying “no” and try to form a secondary economy parallel to the mainstream one.
Not possible, you say? Better go talk to the illegals about that one as they have it down to a friggin science now. Black markets abound in our great country. I have even stated that I could go out today and buy a full auto whatever without all the government snooping and paperwork or taxes involved. I would pay a premium for it, but it is doable. Heck, just look at how the Gov has a war on drugs and you see one of the black markets (or at least the surface of it and the reaction to it.)
Just say “No”. Given the numbers of people in this country that are just flat fed up with all of it, enough people saying no would put a dent in the revenues that the beast needs to feed its parasite base.
I just can’t find it in me to educate everyone I meet anymore. Those that need the education the most also require a lifetime of re-education to UNLEARN the falsehoods they have been fed by the MSMs and that ilk. Some people, like my dad, played the game as it was promised to them and I feel for them the most as they are typically the ones that need the most care with ‘taking the red pill’. And they will be the last to stand up and say NO. They are the typical “they came for the Catholics, and I did nothing “ types.
Those that have been following my tributaries of thought over the last years, know that I also encourage preparing for the worst of times. That is also a part of that saying ‘no’. Without a backup plan (preps) you can refuse them all day long, but eventually you will need that society you are rejecting for support of being. Food, fuel, or any of the other myriad things that keep a body moving in this world. Preparing, or hedging against bad times is not new, it was the norm all the way up into much of the beginning of the Industrial Age. Its the Computer age that has damaged that mindset, with our JIT delivery systems and a manipulated economy. I can’t stress enough those preps. Preps in materials, preps in alternative currency, preps in practical apptitude and skills, preps in personal growth or health. It all boils down to that insurance policy that you can’t buy from any dealer except yourself.
My blogging is going to start to become very sporadic from this point forward. I find that I have very little to add to the fray of opinion any longer. I also have lot’s more work ahead of me and our time is growing short. Much of what I am doing now I don’t want to post about as it could be construed as advertising resources. If it were only me involved at this point AND I were truly mobile, I wouldn’t care. I am not on both counts so the word is mum and that means little to discuss.
I am also of the frame of mind that if you are not on page with much of what I have said in this and other posts; you are probably far behind the curve with little chance of catching up (and I don’t feel I am ahead of that wave ENOUGH ) IF that is the case, and only you can truly tell that point, I can’t help you. Your only chance is to start getting your fingers dirty and bleeding doing the hard work and squeezing every penny till Lincoln is writhing in pain.
And I can feel a vibe in the air. People are done talking. It is time for doing.
Time to get busy.
