TIN HAT FOR ME, ROSE COLORED GLASSES FOR OTHERS
I had posted in one of my blogs to get out while you can from the U.S. and some people feel that, that is a little harsh maybe even tin hat time for me to say that. First off I love the U.S. don't get me wrong. But one has to start to look at facts and try to foresee what COULD happen and where your going to be when and if it does. No one can say that the u.s. is not in trouble. We are in many wars that are killing off our young people at a cost to us in the trillions of dollars. They are going to reraise the debt ceiling again and more bail outs are coming. all this is being done but yet the will of the people are saying NO NO NO... china has dumped their holdings with the u.s. and are not willing to hand us anymore money.
Your money is not backed by anything, no gold or silver, it is backed only by the faith that people have in it to be honored. When that faith is gone so is your dollar. already our AAA rating is being downgraded. 45 million american's are on food stamps. home prices are sliding down yet again. Jobs have been shipped overseas, the big hiring last month was at McDonalds. A job that use to go to high school kids is now being replaced with college kids with degrees.
It's just not my thinking that you might be better off outside the u.s. or at least outside of the large cities in the u.s. CONGRESSMAN Roscoe Bartlett just put out a video about urban danger where he states 'those who can should move their families out of the city" his fear is in a solar flare that will take out the power grid. NASA has been watching this for a long time and they feel this could very well happen and soon. Right now the sun is throwing a lot of solar flares our way. Don't think this couldn't happen and it's a theory, It has already happen in the past. It was just at a time that many places were not hooked up to the grid like they are today. heres the video link if you want to see it, http://theintelhub.com/2011/05/28/congressman-warns-%E2%80%9Cthose-who-c...
it goes on to state that economist Marc Faber, and trend forecaster Gerald Celente are recommending you prepare and head for rural areas. The US Pentagon and Military are very much aware of these possibilities and they’re preparing for exactly the scenarios described in this documentary.
Now I'm not yelling the sky is falling the sky is falling. but anyone can see that tuff times are coming, where do you see yourself when it hits? if your boat flips and your in the water, is it time then to start looking for a life jacket? all I am saying is it's time to prepare for the worse. Many of you that live in fla, have been through bad weather, what happens at home depot if you wait to go stock up? no plywood for your windows maybe? batteries and water and supplies are gone?
I moved my family to panama. Now I understand when tuff times hit the u.s. it will also hit the world and no place is a safe haven. not even in panama. but I look at the problems that I won't have to deal with here, compared to the states.
1. it never gets cold here, so we wont freeze without power or fuel
2. it never gets to hot here, so we won't burn up without power or fuel
3. we can grow all year round here
4. ratio of people to guns here is very low compared to the u.s.
on that one I must say I have seen street guns the police take off people here and many are worn out, old and rusted junk. I can walk into any hood in the u.s. and buy the best newest weapons out there.
5. panama has many poor people, that are use to living without many things. If you compare the avg teenager here to one in the u.s. it's night and day. the teenager here has a small cot in one room that he shares with other people. he might have a 20.00 cell phone without time to make a call. One only needs to walk into a u.s teenagers room and start counting the toy's. Kids here wouldn't feel the hit of having all that taking away. can't long for things you never had.
6. I have a fresh deep underground source of water.
7. we have oceans on both sides which will be a source of food for many.
8. we never have hurricanes or tornados
9. food is local grown and plenty of it.
10. its a cleaner country, without the factories that pump out smoke and chemicals.
11. we have far less gangs and people hooked on drugs here as well.
there are 11 things just off the top of my head that I don't have to worry about. what if I lived in new york, would all these apply?
I live each day, happy, I go out and live life to the fullest, I don't sit here and worry about all this but I am PREPARED, in case it does. are you? do you have food stocked up? water, guns? what is your plan if something like this hit. I have 100 cases of pint bottle of cheap liquor. I can trade one for a chicken or pounds of rice or beans.
is where your living a safe place, if not do you have a place in mind that you can get too away from the cities? getting to it is a big issue as well, if everyone hits the road trying to get out, then the highway will be worthless once a few cars run out of fuel. now you can't make that 75 mile drive.
many people will dismiss this post as a rant from a nut case. fair enough I'll been called that before. I was called that when I told friends to start selling off their real estate holding and to buy gold years ago. they didn't do it of course and said your nuts, now they can't do either one. Their holdings are worthless and many have just handed them back over to the banks because they were upside down in them.
just spend a little time and think over this post, yeah I understand there are some if's and maybe's in there, it reminds me of when my dad would have fire drills in our home, as a kid I would hate to be woken up for a drill, it seemed like a waste, until one night my dad yelled fire and we all were standing were he told us to be, all safe and accounted for while we watched the house burn.
love you all
