I have connections in health care and I can tell you right now that if we really do have a pandemic that requires many people to be on ventilators, (as the swine flu tends to) there will be many deaths. I say this with confidence because no hospital has enough vents on hand to handle a pandemic. Hospitals keep inventory low, just like most buisnesses do, and also use JIT inventory. If a hospital should have need of more vents, they just call up the supplier and rent some until the need is over, thus keeping invetory low overall. But in a pandemic, we will be SOL. Every hospital cannot be supplied at once. And even if they did have enough equipment, do they have the trained personnel availale to keep it running? Respiratory Therapists are specifically trained for the job and you just can't stick someone else into that position easily. RNs can work different floors with minimal training, but IMHO you can't just stick someone into an RT position without more extensive training.
You might want to make some inquires at your local hospitals about this now as they keep saying they expect we will be hit harder with the swine flu this fall. Of course they are planning and preparing, but I asked a friend who is an RT and there were no increases in their inventory... Mostly they have talked about having back up for childcare so you can still come to work. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure these things out, yet the heads of our health institutions are more worried about their paychecks and the bottom line, so they are still keeping the inventory low.
I hope you are planning on ways to keep your family healthy through this next few seasons. Remember that an ounce of prevention of worth a pound of cure.
Keep Preppin'

More people are waking up

People are waking up and starting to prepare.


Also, there are more and more articles in the news about the coming hyperinflation. Many are saying we have a year or more and I hope that is true as I have a lot more to do.

It's time to take back our freedoms and the first thing that entails is becoming responsible, self-relieant and self-educated. It is in the scriptures and it is part of life that we are to reap what we sow. So I encourage you today to start to sow good seed into your life and the lives of your children. Learn how to do things, not just hire them out. Get a do-it-yourself manuel and do it yourself!
Above all keep a good attitude and get your kids involved. If you make it fun, they will love it and be ahead of the game when they reach adulthood. And right now, if you really mess it up, you can still call in the calvary... your local handyman. In a few short months or years you may not have that option. You also have the added bonus of teaching your kids that if you don't know how to do something, you can find resources and learn how. Kinda like- all things are possible. So many now of days have the attitude of "it can't be done" just because they have never seen it done, have no imagination, or are lazy.
I think the day is coming when you will not be able to file for unemployement or disability checks because there just won't be anything left...if you don't work, you won't eat. Take advantage of what we have available now to prepare for the future.
Keep on preppin'

The prepper's community loses an icon

Big John Lipscomb, perhaps best known for his radio show "Don't tread on me" has decided to retire from both his show and blogging.
His reasoning is that time is drawing short for the pending collapse. It's time for final prep's and family.
My initial contact with him was in seeking true heirloom seeds for the garden, ie....plants who's seeds you can keep for future planting and not some genetically modified crap.
He will keep his seed business going for now though and I'd encourage you to get some while you still can. I found his package to be the best value around but you can do your own research. Hybrid seeds like you get a wally world are a one planting deal. The seeds from these plants are sterile thanks to Monsanto.
His web site is http://www.survivalistseeds.com/
He's just a good ole boy/patriot and I for one will miss his insight.

Appleseed Shoot

There will be an Appleseed Shoot in Shiocton, WI on June 6 and 7. If I didn't have a very important event to go to on Saturday, I would be there.
It will be held at the Village of Shiocton Lake Park Rifle Range and women, all those under 21, and active military - including reserves and guard shoot free!
From what I hear, it will be a great use of your time and it only costs $70 for both days if you pre-reg, $80 walk on or $50 for one day. There is camping near by also. For more info go to www.appleseedinfo.org or write WI@Appleseedinfo.org
I hope many of my fellow preppers can attend!

Enough of being devided!

I've come to a realization.

There should not be a political left or right anymore.

There should only be center and we should be "centered" on helping each other!

I stumbled across a site the other day that was so far left wing it was beyond imagination. I made the mistake of (politely I thought) making a comment contrary to the blogger's thinking and you'd think I'd kicked a hornets nest.

I was suddenly fare game for every loyal minion of that blog when I meant no offence whatsoever (simply a difference of opinion)!

I've always voted for whom I felt was the best candidate regardless of party. Who I felt would most keep their oath to our constitution. Although with our two party system it is usually a vote for the lesser of evils rather than a vote "for" someone! Regardless of party they have all repeatedly broken their oath's lately.

As Americans we have to get back to "We the People" not those on the right or those on the left but "WE" as Americans.

The only division there should be in this country at this time is "WE" against Tyranny. Let's all try to "center" on that.

The revival of our constitution depends on it!

Possibly a date for when the SHTF?

Maybe not but there's enough cause for concern that I'm marking my calender!
FEMA has announced an "exercise" involving four other country's (including troops). They claim it's a mock drill should there be multiple terrorist attacks on the US. This is to take place between July 27 Th and the 31 st.
This is to be conducted in the SW region (only) but it's currently "In the planing stages"...bla...bla...bla...
Not surprisingly, the main stream media has not yet reported on this and they wont until they are told/ordered to. At which time they will tell the sheeple "It's in defence of the red white and blue"...."It's for your own good and that of ....sniff....the Children, Please cooperate with these brave foreign troops who have left their families in order to keep you (and the..sniff.. children) safe"!
So much for the media's Bullshit now let's look at some hard facts.
I'm not making the following up people. You ask yourselves the questions.
Building up to this so called "exercise" what has the fed gov been doing lately and WHY?
The urgent completion of GPS coordinates of every front door in America before July 1 st......WHY?
Truckers across the country reporting unusual deliveries to closed military bases, commodities of canned and freeze dried foods, T shirts, boots and many unknown items delivered to "closed" military bases? Bases that have barbed wire fences facing inward.......WHY?
Reports (from many sources) of hundreds of newly manufactured "car carrier" type rail cars when our automobile industry's are bankrupt.....WHY?
Some scary key words in FEMA's subtle announcement are "In the planing stage"! Watch very closely that they don't "plan" this right into Canada and your own back yard!
There just seems to be a hole lot of fed gov activity going on in a very short period of time....WHY?
Is July 27th our dead line for when the SHTF?.... I don't know.
As the economy goes, the timing makes sense for that last shoe to drop...doesn't it?
There just seems to be too much fed gov activity going on way too fast.
Ask yourself....WHY?

Shame on Me!

I had made a recent post entitled " Back door to Tyranny".
It was up for a short time before my wife read it and ask me to delete it.
Basically it was about Obammy pushing a Senate ratification of an international treaty requiring U.S. citizens to register their firearms (registration is the first step to confiscation...that's just history 101).
The wife's argument had some merit though, (I hate it when that happens) in that my past posts have seen some fed gov.com traffic to this site and "why draw attention to ourselves"?
If I make a comment that may cause the sheeple to fall out of step toward their push to the pen it seems some alarms go off!
I've been informed by other blogger's that "Big Brother" locks in on key words that might upset the bureaucrat's bosses. God forbid I should piss them off!
Anyway I made a deal with the wife, if the government wants to keep trashing our constitution and our bill of rights there is simply no sense in being silent. It's liberty or death...PERIOD!
She understands if they come to our door to enforce an unconstitutional law the "tree of liberty" will be feed on both sides.
Shame on me for holding my tong as there is far too much at stake to be silent!
In regard to fed gov.com key words....let's see if we can get a hit from the Health Dept.....WASHINGTON needs a fk'n ENEMA!!!!
