Panic Buying as Britain Runs Out of Food and Fuel

Out of Fuel in the UK

Last winter, as blizzards hit the US and Europe, an earthquake hit Haiti and a Tsunami threatened Hawaii, we ran several stories pointing out the potential weaknesses in our just-in-time transportation delivery systems, utility grids and emergency response capabilities.

We have yet another example from England, which should be a wake up call to those who have never considered having at least some basic emergency supplies on hand.

Food and fuel were running out in some parts of Britain as the big freeze continued to make deliveries impossible.

Supermarkets were battling to keep their shelves stocked with staple foods such as bread and milk and petrol retailers were running low dry on fuel as lorries struggled to complete deliveries in the icy conditions.

The Independent Petrol Retailers Association warned that up to 500 independent petrol retailers in Scotland and the east of England risked running dry by the weekend.

It stated that road tankers have been unable to leave the main terminals from two refineries from the Total SA (TOT) refinery at Lindsey and from the Jet refinery at Killingholme, both on south Humberside, effectively “cutting the supply chain off at its knees”.

Panic-buying was also adding to the problem as consumers stocked up on essentials.

Consumers have also been stocking up on shovels, water bottles and thermals as the big freeze continues to bite.

Marks & Spencer reported a 121% increase in sales of thermal clothing in the past week while Sainsbury’s said it had increased its stocks of long-life UHT milk which has seen a 20% rise in demand.

Although the weather is expected to improve slightly over the weekend, further freezing conditions are forecast for next week.

When an emergency or natural disaster strikes, and for most of us it will at some point in our lives, you can either be prepared and have everything you need to survive at home, or you can be this person:

Panic-buying: No bread at Tesco in Tunbridge Wells as shoppers were urged to show restraint (left) and milk runs out at Sainsbury’s in Mansfield (right).

Sing the health praises of parsley and sage

Those of us who go back a few years likely remember the line about parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme in the huge Simon and Garfunkel hit song about two ill-fated lovers, "Are You Going to Scarborough Fair". Many have speculated that the reference to the four popular herbs was due to their use in Medieval Europe to help cleanse the air and ward off the infamous black plague. Others have thought that the reference to the four herbs was because the combination may have been used as a love potion. Whatever the reason for their inclusion in the popular song, the many health benefits of parsley and sage are worth loving and singing praises about in their own rights.


Parsley is an amazing medicinal herb with a world of health benefits. The root contains calcium, B-complex vitamins, and iron, which nourish the glands that help regulate the uptake of calcium. It is a source of magnesium, calcium, potassium, vitamin A, beta-carotene, vitamin C and vitamin K.

Among the many benefits reported for parsley are:

*It is a diuretic which helps the body produce more urine to keep the urinary system operating smoothly and which helps prevent problems such as kidney stones and bladder infections.

*It is wonderful for removing toxins from the body, such as heavy metals.

*It is an effective breath freshener. It is believed that the practice of including parsley on a dinner plate began due to its breath freshening abilities and not merely for its decorative effect.

*The root and leaves are good for the liver and spleen.

*It helps relieve bloating during menstruation.

*It provides relief for edema, often helping when other remedies have failed

*Parsley root and seeds help relax stiff joints, often making stiff and unmanageable fingers work again.

*It helps remove gallstones when used properly by taking a pint of the tea daily.

*It is beneficial for the adrenal glands.

*It is a powerful therapeutic aid for the optic nerves, brain and sympathetic nervous system.

*Parsley juice is an excellent tonic for the blood vessels.

Note: It is best to avoid large amounts of parsley if you are pregnant, especially the use of the volatile essential oil.


Like rosemary, its sister herb in the mint (Labiatae) family, sage contains a variety of volatile oils, flavonoids and phenolic acids, including rosmarinic acid. The oils found in sage are both antiseptic and antibiotic, helping it fight infections.

Besides the antioxidant and other properties shared with Rosemary, sage`s other health benefits include:

*It is effective for symptoms of menopause, night sweats and hot flashes because of its estrogenic action and because its tannins help dry up perspiration.

*Sage helps provide better brain function and has been used in the treatment of cerebrovascular disease for over a thousand years. It helps provide better recall and research has suggested that it may be an effective option to help treat Alzheimer`s.

*There`s also compelling evidence that sage may be of value to people with diabetes for whom the hormone insulin does not work as efficiently as it should. Lab studies indicate that sage may boost insulin`s action.

* The ability of sage to protect oils from oxidation has also led some companies to experiment with sage as a natural antioxidant additive for cooking oils that can extend shelf life and help avoid rancidity.

In an upcoming article, we will also sing the praises of the other two herbs mentioned in the popular song - rosemary and thyme.

Terrorist may poison the food supply (but the food companies already have)

Always on the terror streak, the mainstream media is now warning Americans that terrorists may strike the food supply by dumping poison into restaurant salad bars and buffets, for example. CBS News broke the story, quoting anonymous "intelligence" sources who insist that terrorists might use ricin or cyanide to poison foods in salad bars.

I have news for CBS, the federal government, and the terrorists: If you really want to poison the U.S. food supply, just use aspartame. It causes neurological disorders and yet remains perfectly legal to dump into foods such as diet sodas and children's medicines. You don't even have to dump it into the food supply in secret, either: You can do it right out in full view of the public. Heck, you can even list this chemical right on the ingredients label!

Or get into the MSG business. MSG, which is often hidden on "natural" foods under an ingredient called yeast extract, is a potent neurotoxin that promotes obesity and even cancer, according to some experts. Feed people enough MSG and they'll probably die of cancer sooner or later, and that counts toward the goal of terrorism too, doesn't it?

If you really want to get nasty and up the body count, start a hot dog company and dump sodium nitrite into your processed meat like all the other hot dog companies do. Sodium nitrite promotes aggressive cancers -- even in children -- and yet the USDA and FDA allow its use in the food supply (http://www.naturalnews.com/007133.html).

Better yet, feed the population genetically modified corn and then wait for the mutations to kick in. GMOs might actually be called a biological weapon because they cause so much harm to humans and the environment. (http://www.naturalnews.com/GMO.html)

Why be a terrorist when you can do so much more damage as a processed food company?

If you're a terrorist looking to poison the U.S. food supply, get in line, buddy! The food companies have beat you to it!

In the U.S. food supply right now, you can find toxic mercury, BPA, acrylamides, petrochemicals, dangerous preservatives, synthetic chemicals like aspartame, pesticide residues and artificial colors that alter brain function. The FDA doesn't seem to care about any of this, of course: All these poisons in the food supply are legal!

So here's a message to Al-Qaeda and all the other terrorists trying to kill Americans: Don't bother with bombs and missiles... just get into the processed food business!

Or, heck, if you really want to kill Americans with poison, get into the cancer industry! The "Al-Qaeda Cancer Clinic" could really rack up some body bags by doing what all the other cancer clinics do: Inject patients with chemotherapy and watch them die (http://www.naturalnews.com/029996_c...).

Seriously, if you want to kill Americans, all you really need to do is keep supporting conventional medicine and the FDA with its do-nothing position on dangerous chemicals that threaten the health of Americans right now. FDA-approved drugs kill well over 100,000 Americans each year -- a statistic that dwarfs the body count of any terrorist group.

Come to think of it, how do we know the FDA isn't already being run by terrorists? Their actions, which blatantly endanger American lives, are entirely consistent with the aims of a terrorist organization. (http://www.naturalnews.com/001894.html)

By the way, this is all depicted in a CounterThink cartoon I created in 2006 called The Food Terrorists: http://www.counterthink.com/The_Foo...

This cartoon anticipated today's terror news alerts by four years. That's because when it comes to the U.S. government's rhetoric on terrorism, it's not that difficult to see where they're taking it.

Want to know what the next four years will bring us? I'll soon be publishing a list of predictions for 2011 and beyond. Watch NaturalNews.com for that announcement.

In the mean time, you might want to steer clear of FDA-approved foods and drugs, because you just never know what's really in them.

Same old story

I have been feeling as though I have been living in a bad dream for some time now, one that I just cannot seem to wake up from. It is a feeling of being in an Ayn Rand novel with all the government bailouts, it is complimented with Orwellian 1984 newspeak, such as “mandatory volunteerism” and “war is peace” with a little bit of Huxley's Brave New World floating around in the background.

After much soul searching and pondering, I have come to acknowledge that the life of liberty our ancestors enjoyed is only a fading memory in our nation today. I now serve a master, my owner, if your will.

Even as an adult with full mental capabilities, I am not allowed to own property. Don't believe me? You just try not paying your property taxes and see how long before my master/owner comes to claim payment by evicting you and selling the property to get his due.

I cannot travel without my owner/master's permission. Don't believe me? You just see how long you can drive without a driver's license or vehicle registration or now, car insurance.

I must keep track of every cent I earn and then make an accounting of it to ensure my master/owner gets his cut. Don't believe me? Don't pay your income taxes see how long before you are fined or jailed or both.

I am not allowed to purchase any substance or contraption that my owner/master deems unsafe for me. Don't believe me? You just try using an unapproved medical treatment or device to treat yourself and see how fast you are fined or jailed or both.

If I should come into an inheritance or win the lottery, my master/owner will take his cut before I get mine if possible, but he will get his, no question.

I cannot carry a concealed weapon for my or my family's protection without the permission of my master/owner. Don't believe me?Get caught doing it and you will feel the repercussions pronto. One guy was even arrested for open carrying on his own property; thankfully he fought it and won, but you try it off your property and concealed and just see what happens.

My master/owner can, at any time and for any reason, declare me an enemy and take away me away without question or trial. Don't believe me? Ask some of the so-called enemy combatants.

My master/owner can take my possessions away without cause and not have to return them if it is deemed they have been used unacceptably. Don't believe me? The war on drugs has taken away property from citizens that was declared used in drug trafficking and does not have to return it to its rightful owners, -ever.

My master/owner will not allow me to speak freely in complaint of the treatment I receive. Don't believe me? Go research “free speech zones.”

Welcome to the new world order, only it isn't really new, it's just an old idea packaged with a new pretty nomenclature, but is the same old story, ….serfdom.

You are seeing "The Calm before the the Storm"!

The final nails in the coffin of our liberty will come between the first Tuesday in November and the inaugurations in January. (Mark my words as though they were gospel)!
Most incumbents know that come November their worthless asses are fired but yet hope (beyond hope) they wont be. So they're holding back their agenda for now.
I'd love to know how much they were threatened or how much bribe money it took to have them turn their backs on "94%" of the citizens in this country and voted yes on the banker bail out, the taking over of the auto industry and the so called "Health Care" (now we got you under our thumb's you peons) bill!
That period of time between the elections and the inaugurations is when the incumbent "loser's" and the "lame Duck" Obamanation are going to cram through stuff like cap and trade, Internet censoring and God only Knows what else to ruin our country for those that pull their little puppet strings! At that point what will they have to lose? (Hopefully their necks).
Come November it's deer season In Wisconsin. This year might be a nation wide open season on traitors as well.
Might want to save some room for nooses on those buck poles!

The Boston Tea Party vs the Raw Milk Uprising

First, a thank you to Northwoods for stepping up and filling in here, great posts too!

Life happened to me and I don't know if and when I can eek out the time to post.

And even tho I am near exhausted tonight, the anger I feel at what is going on in the so-called home of the brave and the supposed land of the free is sickening and infuriating.

Please see: www.worldnetdaily.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=169653

I have been wondering just what might turn the awakened - those who are on to what the goon's agenda is, into people who are finally ready to say enough is enough and become ACTIVE. Well, this just might be it.

The liberty lovers of old dumped tea in protest of the government and their goons interfering in their lives and livelihoods, and now the goons are making us dump milk to show they control us. They think they own us, and they don't approve of us making our own decisions, including what to eat or drink. So good, healthy, raw milk, milk that is a healing elixir, is demonized and we are asked to dump it. I sure would not have helped the $%#%'s. I would have made them do all the dumping.

This is happening all over the country and right here in Wisconsin. Ask yourself WHY?

Did you know a person can exist on raw milk alone? They can and quite nicely too. But the goons sure don't want you to be able to. Ask yourself WHY?

And those who have enforced this "law" and others like it had best take heed. Because saying you are "just doing your job" is not going to cut it the near future.

I am not a violent person and I don't condone violence, but I know there are many who are fed up and if you should just happen to ask them to dump their chosen nourishment, well, .... let's just say, I wouldn't want to be you.

Truth about the Golf Coast Disaster

The controlled MSM would have you believe this is just a temporary set back for our southern coast. There's only 5000 gallons a day spewing out and all will be back to normal in... ah... maybe 3..6..or 12 months at the worst. The reality is about 3 to 5 million gallons a day are spewing out of that thing!
The truth is this..
They attempted to drill deeper than had ever been done before on an "off shore rig". When the drill punched though this unexplored stratus, the pressure was so great coming out of the well casing (20 to 70 thousand pounds per square inch) it blew out all safety values and there is nothing in or technology that can stop that degree of pressure. There is NO stopping it!
The well casing from the ocean floor to the stratus is all but non existent, blown out or eroded. The under sea "plumes" of oil found as much as 20 miles from the drill sight are due to horizontal seepage from the pressure escaping from the faults or total elimination of the casing traveling through higher level stratus veins (fishers) are popping up in every direction! Capping it would do nothing but force the pressure to find the next means of "least resistance" and these "plumes" prove that.
To say this is the worst ecological disaster in the history of mankind is an understatement. Obviously this unstoppable oil will ruin the beach's and destroy the aquatic life but the real health threat are the toxic gasses emitted in the air and they are deadly!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SYhugmaAL3A (Worth watching all nine segments).
If you think living in Wisconsin puts you a world apart from this...You might want to think again. Imagine 40 million people evacuating from the south and east coasts as a hurricane distributes all that slop on their domain.
Would Wisconsin be safe....Or just one of the last domino's to fall?
Think about that and maybe do some more prepping eh!

Know thy Neighbor

As we all witness our country's not so slow slide to Armageddon we need to inventory not only our "Beans Bullets and Band aids" but also our assets, liability's, friends and foes.
Example, how well do you know your neighbors?
Are they awake to what is really happening or are they (head in the sand) listening to MSM and think the fed gov will save them from any hardship? Meaning are they "stupid Sheeple"!
If you don't have a clue of your neighbors awareness level it'd be a good idea to invite them over for coffee or a BBQ and maybe feel em out a bit.
Kinda slid into the conversation your concerns about runaway government, food prices, economic collapse, ext..
You should be able to determine pretty quick if they have half a brain or are totally brain washed!
I recently did just that and was delighted to find that the young couple who'd moved into an old school house (on one acre) near us were born and raised in rural Minnesota, weaned on venison and home grown vegetables and the guy "lives" to hunt and fish...yep that's my kinda neighbor!
Their having only one acre, they were delighted when I offered them a portion of my garden for them to plant...Hey, that's what neighbors are for!
As for the other neighbors I've had for years...we all know if TSHTF we will have each others Six.
If anyone of us were in need of help it'd be there in minutes, be that firewood or firearms...
I'm thinkin' "the new kid in town" might just fit right in.
Get to know your neighbor...sooner rather than latter.
So who's down the street from you or right next door...Friend or foe?

They can't All be Wrong!

It's time to put your Prep's in HIGH GEAR people!
The link below has predictions from some very highly acclaimed professionals. Most have been correct about 90% of the time. I have been following several of these guys for years and their accuracy is down right scary.
You can take what they say with a grain of salt if you wish but if I were you I'd be buying as much long term storage food as possible, water filtration, guns and ammo.
These are not some quacks but rather "EXPERTS" who have been "DEAD ON" time and time again!
Maybe listen to a few more wise men...Franklin said, "If you fail to prepare then you are preparing to fail"!
Then there's the wisest of them all...God will help those who are "willing" to help themselves!
Now get busy and may God bless you all!

Something to think about

Found this article and thought it was worth a read so I am posting for you below. I usually say we need to fight on every front. The article talks about people who kept fighting even knowing it could cost their lives and it seems it did.

My first thought was how much more we can do now, while there is still the pretense of free speech alive. Hopefully enough of us will take advantage of it; many are already too frightened of government and won't single themselves out.

As for the article, this is where we are heading folks.

It is good to prepare physically, but we must prepare mentally and spiritually if we are to really survive.

The price of insanity

The result of our society's insanity is broken lives and not enough prisons. We don't want to see that though. We don't want to admit that our society, the one that is still supposed to be the best one in the world, is only a memory of an idea of liberty. We still believe the promise that if we work hard, we will reap a reward. Well, maybe that is true, IF you do it the way the goons have devised. IF we are the round peg and can fit into their round holes.

But what if you are a triangle peg, or a square peg, or a rectangular peg? It just aint gonna work. You can reeducate and retrain that un-round peg all you want, they are not gonna fit! If you are a triangle, you are not SUPPOSED to fit into that round hole! But society says that if you don't, you can't be a “successful” member and you must be dealt with and by golly if we don't have a law yet, we'll write one up quick to keep all the round pegs “safe” from your kind! ARGG.

My son's friend, let's call him TJ, is a square peg. He is very tactile and active so they put him on meds and tell him to sit still, follow the rules, be quiet, blah blah blah. He can be a nice kid; helped me in the garden once, pulled out a shrub I wanted out of the ground, worked his skinny little bum off. And with a great attitude. If our stinking law would not have required that he be imprisoned for 18 years of his life in a living hell, he would have been just fine. He would have learned hands-on lessons and if he could have been in the real world, working, making and managing money. Paying real dues, leaning to be responsible. He could have been a very productive member of society. But if we don't indoctrinate and imprison everyone, it wouldn't be fair now would it, and the goons would not have as much influence and control over us.

So TJ gets in repeated trouble and makes some enemies, you know some of the good little worker drones don't like him, or are scared of him. So when they see he has a pocket knife while in the government's indoctrination center, they report him and with our dang no tolerance policy he gets carted off to jail and once in the system, more charges are brought against him. He did get off somewhat after getting a lawyer. But in the end, he still won't obey the stupid rules of the halfway house and etc. and because of their mistakes he looses his job. (This story is much condensed.) Not being able to find another full time job, he is threatened with going to prison for several years. Rather than go back to lock up, he runs away. So now you've got an 18 year old young man on the run. He has nothing. No friend to go with him, no family, no high school diploma, no income, and a hard time trying to get a job because there is a warrant for his arrest. He could be sleeping on the streets cold and hungry right now and it ticks me off. And he leaves a baby behind that was already abandoned by the young mother.

Number one, he shouldn't have had to go to school unless he chose to. We keep our kids dependent and young for way too long. If their bodies are able to produce their own children, but we say they are still children for 6- 8 more years; I think something is wrong with that picture. (Yes, I know some little girls get their periods very early, but that is the exception, or is from getting too many hormones in their diet or from being exposed to estrogen-like substances; that is not what I am talking about. And I don't think a kid should start having kids just because they can. What I am saying is we try and keep them kids too long so we have more control over them.)

Many societies have a recognition ceremony of some kind at puberty and welcome the youth into the adult circle and let them know that they accept them, but now they are “running with the big boys.” This gives the youth an opportunity to understand what being a man is, and letting him start to take responsibility for himself. I think that is great deal better than if the youth is left to being only with others as immature as he is, with little to no responsibility and with little input from the adult community as we seem to think is just the way to do it.

Number two, why shouldn't the kid have a pocket knife? He didn't hurt anyone with it. When I was in high school, kids could bring their shot gun to school in their car. No big deal. But now a five year old can't even say bang bang and make a gun with his hand without being reprimanded, expelled even! And we let the goons keep making these insane rulings.

Number three, why is locking someone up the only answer we can come up with? What good does that do for anyone? It usually makes a borderline kid more of a mess and it costs the taxpayer exorbitant amounts - to pay the guards, the cooks, the medical and cleaning crew etc. and to build the facility itself. And don't forget the family the incarcerated left behind to go on welfare. Now I understand if someone is killing and raping beyond a doubt, they should be removed, but this kid just did not want to play by their insane rules.

We have been so dang brainwashed that we can't even understand the basic premise of what it means to be human. And we have swallowed, hook, line and sinker what the goons have fed us.

I think one of the biggest mistakes, if not perhaps The biggest one we ever made was to allow the creation of “public” schools. In so doing we abdicated our children to the goons. And not only our children, but ourselves. My husband could have run a particular type of processing operation, but because he did not have a sheepskin, they wouldn't even look at his application. But back when he graduated, it was not such a necessity to go to college. It just shows the progression of their control.

You cannot have a career in medicine, law, or a variety of other things without a thorough indoctrination and then the passing of a test. What if you are capable, a genius even, and are competent? Doesn't matter, you have to jump though the assigned hoops and if you don't, you are denied.

Who gave the goons the right to deny a man from pursuing what he wants to do with his life?
No one did outright, they just outsmarted us and we let them. The price of liberty is eternal diligence and we sure got lazy, so now we are in bondage.

We look back at slavery and wonder how people could have allowed it, but IT WAS LEGAL. And those who helped a slave get to freedom were breaking the law and would have to pay the consequences if caught.

I hope someone helps TJ, even if they are breaking the law.

Gold and Silver

Many are advising that we buy silver and gold lately, even the mainstream advisers. And I must say I have been tempted to do so, especially since I don't feel I can add too much to other preps as we are renting at present, but in reading the scriptures, I am again reminded that there are things that are even more advisable to pursue and attain.

Proverbs 8:10 tell us that we should receive instruction and not silver, knowledge rather than gold. Vs 11 tells us that wisdom is better than rubies and ALL the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it! The Lord tells us that wisdom cries out to all, even the simple and the fool. Wisdom speaks truth and in it you will find understanding, counsel and justice.

I have been listening to Atlas Shrugged again and I have been trying to discern exactly where Ms. Rand and I disagree and where we agree. I do agree with her moral premises, and yet she has been able to predict the world we now live in through following the choices people make to their natural conclusions. I think she was able to apprehend a good bit of truth and wisdom, especially where the man thinks in his heart and how this effects his actions, but I also think she misses the mark of true reality because she could not accept the fact that there are some things we cannot know except by direct revelation from God. She presents religion as being a tool in the hand of the looter and especially the moochers, which I do not think the scriptures support. The Word tells us that we should not cast our pearls before swine lest they trample them under their feet and turn again and rend us apart(Matthew 7:6) and that if any would not work, neither shall he eat (2Thessalonians 3:10). God teaches that we reap what we sow and He is the author of justice. So He would not support the moochers and we can be sure He would not support the Looter, ie Do not steal!

He is also the author of mercy and grace you may say. That is true, but unto whom does He grant that mercy and grace? He offers it to all, and He and bestows a limited amount unto all (God send the rain on the just and the unjust), but He does not grant His unlimited mercy and grace to all. He reserves that only for those who acknowledge Him and accept His terms. Just as those in Galt's gulch, reserve their friendship and brotherhood to those who choose to accept their terms. Galt recognizes a man's will, his choice, his self-determination as being the one thing that he cannot control, but he can see through the man's fruits -in how he conducts himself, if he is a candidate for joining the gulch group. And so Galt waits until the man (or woman) is ready, when they have reached the point where they can no longer reconcile their reality with true reality and they are open to embrace John's logical presentation of truth.

I wonder if that is what God does? Are we to be tolerant of unbelievers (and backsliders) in the hopes that they will come to their senses one day and join us? Yes I think so, but we should not allow them to become moochers or looters.

So often lately I hear, “well there's nothing we can do about it.” And in my mind I hear the echo, Who is John Galt?”

I have seen pictures of Ayn Rand with the former head of the fed and I wonder, did the goons decide to use the book to their advantage? Did they decide it would be a great play book? There are just too many similarities, with the exceptions of the gulch of course.

Just makes one wonder....

Would love to tell the goons to go to hell....

I am so not happy with being legislated into more and more slavery. Dear God, how long before people wake up and smell the chains that bind us? And sooooo very much of it is done in the name of “SAFETY” usually “public safely.” It is usually just an excuse to control people. Why should only those who have gone to school for x be allowed to do x? What if someone can do x naturally and well? Perhaps they can even pass the x test, to prove competency and alleviate the goons outcry, but no, they must go the x approved school and usually this entails getting into great debt and giving up years of their life.

It is all about control; the goons want to control you! With your blessing. And we give it to them!

How many of our kids start out in life with the best years given to being indoctrinated into just what the goons want us to think of the way the world works, and the way we should spend our lives? Just because the kids want a certain type of career? They can't just go learn about how to do something or how to fix a thing, no they must get a degree that demands they are indoctrinated with the latest BS, ie “general education.” They can't apprentice with a master in the field. They must pay to play and pay dearly. Once they are in debt, they must “play by the rules” so that they can pay the debt. Perhaps take a qualifying test and pay for licenses that renew regularly and require more money to be paid and then perhaps so much yearly education for more money to be paid and hopefully for the goons, more debt...

Less and less choices on how to spend your time and more and more power for the goons.

And heaven forbid if you are a square peg. Gotta fit into the round hole in order to do what you like or are good at doing. Cause all those square pegs are hard to control, you see, they are creative, or naturally talented and we can't have anyone who can think for themselves or who don't need the goons to tell them what truth is. So it is best not to let the square pegs have any chance at all, unless they agree to submit to tests and labels and further and better indoctrination in order to be make them think there is something really, really wrong with them, to make them so self-conscious that they won't bring any common sense or inventions forth that the goons don't control.

And they have almost all of unable to do the things that we would need to just survive without them. Like grow food and provide for ourselves. If they cut off the power juice, we are at their mercy...or at least enough of us are - to the point society would come crashing down with death and destruction on every side.

And don't think they won't do it. They couldn't care less about you, especially on an individually level. Why do you think the Personnel Department is now called Human Resources?

So what would it look like if those of us who see the goons for what they are just went Galt? Without a gulch to go to, what would it look like?

Itching to get out of the system,

Sunday reflection on law

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. (And as I have noted before, the more common saying was, Life, Liberty, and Property.)

If all men are created as equals, no one is to be above another. There is only one above us, a Creator.

I have been recently reflecting upon the arguments that stem from people claiming that we are a “Christian” nation. There were among our founding fathers deists, not “Christians.” But the conclusion I have come to is that the way the documents upon which these united states were formed, shows clearly that those who wrote, supported and embraced said documents at their conception were likely one (Christian) or the other(deists). For how could we give deference to a Creator, if there were gods? Or if there were none whatsoever? And if we are graciously granted rights (if you notice the founders acknowledge that there are more than the 3 mentioned) by this Deity, the question arises, what, if any, are the requirements of this Deity?

To me, the basis of all law is finding out the answer to this question.

And in judging from the numerous courts across this nation that have the Ten Commandments engraved in their walls or otherwise posted in some manner, it would appear that the basis used to answer my question were the scriptures or as some would say the ethics dictated by a Judeo-Christian heritage. We were to a be people that held to the rule of law.

If there is a Creator, a Being that created us, what do we owe to this Creator? As equals with each other (all created beings) what do we owe, if anything, to each other? What is life? What is death? Or as I like to say, “What's it all about Alfie?” How are we to live our lives upon this earth in the time allotted us?

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. You will note that this is in direct opposition to the Divine Right of kings. But today many preachers would have us believe it still, the Divine right of Kings - only they will use “President” or “government” and site Romans 13. But are they righting dividing the Word?

I note that God Himself gave His people the type of government they wanted; they wanted a king like the other nations, and He warned them, but gave them a king. (1Sam 8) He acknowledged their unalienable right to choose their government.

We have allowed ourselves to become slaves of the state. And by the state, I mean a form of government, not Wisconsin or Michigan. A form of government that “grants” rights as it deems fit, not a form of government that “secures” our unalienable rights. Those of us who have awakened to the understanding of our lost liberty, have found each other through sites such as this one, and through groups that formed to support Dr. Paul in his run for the presidency. We see clearly that our two-party system has become corrupted and is a sham, a front for the oligarchy that now rules. And there are those who are just on the verge of awakening or those who are dimly awakened, who have joined various other groups; I would rate the tea party participants at this stage. All this awakening has prompted the goons to move as fast as they can to pass more “laws” and to declare more “executive orders” to contain those who are their enemies, those who they are even now declaring “domestic terrorists” and “threats to our national security.”

That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
We are taxed more than the founding fathers, our bonds of slavery are far more reaching and strong, our list of abuses far greater than theirs. So where is the outrage, where the men of courage and principle? Where are our Thomas Jefferson and John Adams? Dr. Paul has heralded the call to awaken, now where are the Sons of Liberty to lead us back to claiming what is ours?

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. To which we are accustomed. We are the frog in the water that has been heating slowly over many years, but many of us are feeling the heat and jumping out of the pot! Many are going Galt. Some are entering the political arena. Some are moving out of the United States (or at least moving their assets offshore) and many are preparing for the inevitable collapse of the dollar and this nation as we remember it. For this nation is no longer what we are taught that it is, - a republic, a people ruled by law, law that is embraced to protect the unalienable rights of men who are equal under the law.

But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
And now it is time to begin to enumerate the injuries and usurpations. I am not a lawyer, nor am I an eloquent speaker or writer. But I am ready to get my liberty back. So on this Sunday, I am praying for those who are well trained in the law, who know history and will stand up for individual rights, to step forward and lead on us into the next step of this journey of reclaiming our liberty.

May our Creator bless you today,

So just who can you trust?

Recently there have been discussions about Glen Beck and whether or not he is really for all the things that liberty lovers are for and I do not trust the man. I saw how he attacked Debra Medina (running for Texas governor) and I realized he is not a true lover of liberty. He ratings dropped significantly after the Medina interview, and I bet many realized he is just another front man used to manipulate the sleeple and those on the verge of awakening. Now he is saying maybe Ron Paul was right... sorry, but I don't buy it. But what better way to get some more viewers back?

I also saw video of Alex Jones and how he treated some real liberty lovers at a rally they had organized. He treated them as beneath him and not worthy of common decency. He is very suspect in my opinion.

Now I have run across this article, and altho I don't agree with it 100%, (the author seems to embrace Beck and Palin) I think we should all be as informed as possible so I want to make it available. Here it is: http://www.michnews.com/Tom_DeWeese/td042110.shtml

In summary, don't just assume someone who is throwing a few buzz words out there is a real liberty lover. Do some research. Reflect on what they say and what they do and the timing of what they do. Ask yourself what is the fruit of what they do. Is it really in tune with those of us who want to regain our liberty? Or is it an attempt to get us labeled and discredited?

Be as wise as a serpent and as innocent as a dove,

Make it yourself and thoughts of reality

I love sites that give free instruction of how to make things yourself out of ordinary stuff. Check this one out: http://www.instructables.com/id/Glass-Bottle-Oil-Lamp/

I have been thinking about how we have been so "dumbed down" and how much we are influenced by the ptb. We all live in a sense of "unreality" to some degree, simply because not a one of us can know everything, or in other words, we are not God. But as time has gone on in this "land of liberty" things are getting worse; due to the fact that respect for logic and the belief that the common man CAN reason things out has been "schooled" out of us. To put it another way, we have been conditioned to think that only "experts" can understand certain things. Case in point, the economy. The goons took over these United States in 1913 with the formation of the Federal Reserve. Of course if they had shown their true intentions at that time, there would have been a revolt. There were too many people willing and able to reason, people who were logical, and they could clearly see that a fiat currency a group of bankers printed at will and "loaned" back to these United States was lunacy.

But alas, today, most do not even know that the Federal Reserve is not owned by the United States of America. Most do not understand how economies work and there are plenty of college classes that will either convince you that you can never know, or so indoctrinate you into their gibberish that you spew the same ridiculous mantra. And so we continue to be led down the path to servitude of a magnitude that this generation cannot imagine.

For a brief look check out: http://www.libertydollar.org/

Here hoping people turn off their reality tv shows and enter into the real thing,

Self Defense and book review: Brave New World

I have been really wishing I felt comfortable with concealed carry here in the cold tundra (my name for Wisconsin.) For self defense. Don't know why it is so heavy on me lately to wish the laws in this leftest state were more compatible with liberty. I know many believe if we had a different governor we would have had the right to "legally" carry by now. Perhaps.

Anyhoo, I wanted to share a website, so here it is. http://www.corneredcat.com/TOC.aspx

Lots of good info there. Take what you like and leave what you don't.

Also, I just finished reading Brave New World by Aldous Huxley again. Amazing to me is what people can predict with just thinking things through. Following a path begun to its natural conclusion. And how so many of these "futuristic" books have shown themselves to be prophetic, in areas anyway. Think of the way antidepressants are handed out and how the "common welfare" is held as more important than the individual and his rights. But the sentence that jumped out at me was when, during a little history lesson the goon was giving the savage, he mentions anthrax bombs. Did any of us reading this years ago for college really think we would see the day we really feared anthrax in this country? The author goes on to say (through the goon) how those bombs persuaded the populace to embrace peace at any price. So the people were willingly drugged into a stupor; they would not become upset about anything and were very easy to control. No more war, no more pain. But those who did not "fit in" in the Brave New World as well as in the Savage's birthplace were still ostracized. Human nature still had to be dealt with.

The book was first written in the '30s and I am sure it really seemed far out there at that time, but today, we can see how right he was. And one of the things that really disturbs me, I think disturbed the author; it is the fact that most of us don't have enough available time for just pondering anymore. Most of us have to give the best of our day, of our lives, to "making a living" or "going to work" or "for the man." And with most households having two adults working, there is no downtime once the "workday" ends as then the home and kids need to be cared for. Is it any wonder that the family unit is disintegrating?

We are inundated with attacks on every side that don't give us a moment's peace - unless we fight for it. And I know many days, I feel too tired to fight and just find myself dropping off to sleep that night without feeling that I have really lived that day. I just existed, just gave my best for a system that neither acknowledges me as an individual or as a unique human being. I am just a cog in the machine, a replaceable cog of course, and with the economy being so bad, the ptb know they can push for even more as so many are afraid of losing their job, so it is getting worse. And I don't see any signs of things getting better, no matter what the propaganda machine is saying.

The "laws" and the brazen disregard for our constitutionally acknowledged God-given rights has made me a slave, has made you a slave too, although you may not understand that.

Some are mad, almost fighting mad. And many, no- most, just want their soma.

Hope you have time to reflect today,

Saturday, April 17, 2010


April 15,16, 17 and 18 were called to be strike days. I only heard about at a late date, but upon searching about on the net, I found that other countries are also going on strike on various days to protest the decisions make by the ptb. And we certainly have some things to protest.
Anyway you can check it out here. http://www.taxfree15.com/
I think a lot of the suggestions they make are good. We need to vote with our frns and build our small communities. And I found my "stike day" to be a nice time away from work and to be with family.

April 15

As we all know it is time to settle up with the STATE. Here's hoping they owe you and you don't owe them!
Across the country there will be many protests today and I thank God that the sleeple are waking up.
I was at the bar again last night. Meeting in a back room. It wasn't well lit and there weren't too many there, but the sparks of liberty are still glowing. There is yet hope. Among heated discussions and opposing views, the goal of less goverenmentnot more was held by almost all present.
We prepare now, but after the excrement hits the osculater, there will be the questions of HOW DID THIS HAPPEN? And we need to be able to give real, true answers. First to our own hearts and then to others. Because that will be our last chance to again be truly free - by setting up the ruins of this land to stand again upon the Constitution. If we don't have answers, we will get a totalitarian regime the likes of which we have not seen anywhere. With the technology the ptb have at their disposal, well, you can just image what living as total slaves would be and there you have it.
But, we are not there yet and we need to do all we can to educate. But the first and most important is to understand the whys behind the events. Because if you do not have that, you do not have a foundation and you will crumble when the going get rough.
Enjoyig tea today,

To blog or not to blog.....

Are there any preppers out there in Wisconsin? I admit I have neglected to blog for some time, but it seems that there are not readers, and without readers, the inspiration to blog leaves me. Or is it that I have so many other things that vie for my time and attention? I know not blogging for some time is not the way to "build a blog." I know that many times people read a blog but don't post a reply. But I also know that my time is my life and if spending it (time, my life) blogging, is not helping anyone out there, then why blog?
So if there is anyone in Wisconsin who would like to contribute your thoughts as a blogger, please contact me at helpuprep@gmail.com.
If there is anyone one who would like me to continue blogging, please let me know. I need some inspiration.
Preppin still,

America's death warrent has been signed

So yesterday they passed the bill, that if upheld, will cause the end of the few remaining freedoms we have left. The good news is that many, many people are very upset about it. We just need a Ron Paul in every state to educate and show the way for the states to stand up to the goons and say no way, we are not going to do what you say! If each state said NO, the feds would not be able to continue this tyranical march over our individual rights. I am all for electing good national reps, but I really think we need to focus on our state reps. God help us here in WI where you can't even protect your own self out there! Not even an off-duty LEO can carry a weapon when off duty legally.
Mark my words, the heath care bill has nothing to do with health and everything to do with controlling you. You are not your own, you now belong to the STATE and the goons that run things.
It is a sad, sad, day for America.

75% of processed food is genetically modified?

The goons granted big corporations like monsantogthe right to patent seed (how can a company be allowed to OWN what God has created?) so they took the seed and messed with it and now they are putting the screws to the farmers and we are forced to consume their frankenseed food.
There is reasoanble doubt as to the safety of those products also.


All the more reason to GROW and store your own food, but try to secure heirloom seed now, before it is no longer available.

Invasion of privacy or legal census?

So the Constitution calls for a census to be taken every 10 years. Please get informed by listening to the video. And if you are mailed the so-called community survey, I hope you will absolutely refuse to comply, and assert your constitutional rights.

I again recently heard a preacher telling people it is only those who are not living a righteous life (ie they have sins to hide) who care if their phones are tapped or their emails read, etc. The goons are protecting you, don't ya know.
And some would have us beleive the second ammendment is only for the benefit of the governing forces, the milita of the day in which it was written. Ben Franklin and the rest of the founders would not recognize this country; we are not the free society they envisioned and tried to give us. We are slaves.

Importance of raw milk

I heard of a man who could only intake liquids due to a health problem and he lived quite well by drinking raw milk. I believe it. Our freedom to determine what we want to have for our food is being attacked in Wisconsin. I reccommend attending the symposium, info below.

2nd Annual International Raw Milk Symposium Claiming Consumer Rights
Sponsored by the Farm-to-Consumer Foundation

Monona Terrace Community & Convention Center
Madison, Wisconsin
Saturday, April 10, 2010
8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Followed by Reception & Dinner FundRAISER to benefit the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund
5:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

$50 Early Bird Registration (until March 15, 2010)

$150 FundRAISER to support the Fund's work in Wisconsin

Sylvia P. Onusic Ph.D. (international raw milk perspective)
Elizabeth Gamsky Rich, Esq. (WI raw milk legal authority)
Michael Schmidt (Canadian pioneer of legal cow-shares)
Tim Wightman (American pioneer of legal cow-shares)
Wisconsin was carefully selected as the site of this year's symposium because of the recent spate of actions taken against Wisconsin raw dairy producers and their customers. Wisconsin, as the 2nd largest dairy state in the union, and the state with the most small dairies, is a crucial state for all raw milk activists and defenders to "dig in" against the erosion of their consumer rights.

Wisconsin Dept. of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) through creative interpretation of law, and legislators through ill-advised legislation, want to ensure that raw milk never passes consumers' lips - by harassing the farmers that produce it - all in the name of "public and food safety".

That's why this symposium, at this time, in this state is so important.

We'll begin by hearing the personal stories of Wisconsin producers, Wayne and Kay Craig and raw milk consumer activist, Emily Matthews. Sally Fallon Morell and Dr. Ted Beals will delve into the science of raw milk nutrients, microflora and benefits. Then, we'll step back and see the role of raw milk from an international perspective with speakers from Germany and Slovenia.

German biodynamic academic researcher Prof. Dr. Ton Baars will describe his research exploring unique raw milk healing properties and Syliva Onusic, Ph.D. will illustrate what enlightened leadership in other countries are embracing on behalf of their citizen's health. We'll hear from the lawyer defending Wisconsin farmers, Elizabeth Gamsky Rich, Esq., who will discuss the legal distinction between the public good and the private right which will set the stage for the grand finale.

Michael Schmidt, in a rare public appearance (outside of the Canadian courtrooms), will kick off the highlight of the symposium and introduce "Joining in the Battle for Food Rights" panel discussion, moderated by the champion of raw milk rights, revolutionary blogger David Gumpert. Panelists include Sally Fallon Morell, Pete Kennedy, Esq., Mark McAfee, Michael Schmidt, Tim Wightman, Ted Beals, M.D. and Elizabeth Gamsky Rich, Esq.

Those that attend the FundRAISER reception and dinner following the symposium will be treated to a delicious four course meal featuring local, organic and grass-based food, and Mark McAfee at his finest, presenting a not-to-miss keynote "Raw Milk as Medicine.... Proudly Violating FDA Drug Laws'.

This is THE symposium and FundRAIASER to attend this year. Your attendance is IMPORTANT and NECESSARY. Don't think you can stay at home on Saturday, April 10th. You are needed.

Save and Register Online www.RawMilkSymposium.org To register by phone, call 703-208-3276.

Dear God!

It is sickening and close to unbelievable that our nation, once a republic founded on the belief that the rights of the individual are to be recognized as God given and are to be PROTECTED, has now said that the STATE, the government, can deem any citizen it so chooses, as worthy of assassination. Without charges being brought against them. Without a trial. With no due process whatsoever. I hope that shocks you! It should. There should be people up in arms all across this nation! But the government mandatory youth jails have done their job well and most of the populace does not even know this has happened; some know and say, “Yea, but what can you do?” and the rest of us cuss a bit and look for more ways to prep and make our plans to disappear even sooner.

The goons truly believe that they OWN us. That we are their property to do with as they so choose. Just as we would shoot a wild animal that was attacking our flock of chickens etc. they feel they have the right to take out any citizen of this county at will. They place absolutely no value on human life or the rights of the individual.

If you at still living in lala land, thinking that life will continue to go on as usual, please wake up, oh please WAKE UP!

I have been wondering how they were going to make us 100% slaves instead of the 50-60% we now are, and I wonder if this is the way they will do it. They know that we won't hand over our guns without a fight. So, the goons can now just pick us off, one by one. Can you imagine living in a world where you don't know when or where you will meet with the assassin's bullet? You wouldn't be able to feel secure anywhere or at anytime. In your home, going shopping, tending your garden. Because you would not know when, or for what, the ptb decided you were an “enemy combatant.” Did you download a “how to” video that is not approved by the goons? Did you go to a meeting that could be deemed a threat to the STATE? Did you write an opinion on the net that did not extol the virtues of socialism? Or perhaps you were just mistaken for someone who did one of those or a various number of similar things.
How long before we take to the streets in protest? I think this would be a worthy cause.
And I want to give thanks to Gen-Ill Homesteader at http://www.illinoispreppersnetwork.com/ for the video and getting us the info on this. She does a great job and y'all should check out the blog she runs.


Just how stupid are we?

One thing that really gets me up on my soap box is the subject of property taxes. Anyone who has read this site knows that not one of us owns our own property; we are renting it from the state via the property tax. Good Golly Miss Molly! How stupid are we?
First we pay the goons a fee and get permission to improve their property (think building permit), then we improve the property on our dime, then we let them charge us MORE for rent via an increase of the property's value. Now check this out: thttp://www.spokesman.com/stories/2010/jan/13/short-handed-assessor-wants-help-from-above/
Yup, now add to the list: you get to have your hard earned frn's go to taxes so that the state can buy pictures of where we live (and whatever we may be doing at the time they do the picture fly overs), all so that they can be up-to-date on any clandestine improvements. Wouldn't want anyone improving the state's property without the state getting to sock it to 'em even more with higher rent.
Like I said, just how stupid are we! Talk about being dumbed down. I don't think we can go too much lower... but I have been wrong before.

Bringing the OUThouse IN

Been thinking about this since we moved into a house with a "holding tank." What a stupid way we deal with our wastes. I knew that there had to be a better way. Sure would like to hear from some folks who have one of these installed and "running" so to speak.


It sure would be a lot easier to install a second bathroom in a house when you did not have to install a regular water closet. And if you woke up one day without running water, well, I wouldn't mind having one of these already in use. Seeing as it may become dangerous to go to OUT to the OUThouse in the future, well, those who had an "INhouse" would be a step ahead me thinks....

long time no blog

So life has been too busy and it has not been so easy to get here and blog.
I have been looking at candidates for the 8th congressional district and I think Terri McCormick beats the others hands down. I hope if you live in that area you will check her out.
I have also heard Scott Walker who is running for gov. and I like what I heard, but have not researched him enough to endorse. Anyone out there know much about him?
Things are heating up where inflation is concerned. We may be seeing some higher prices soon. Got preps?

Words as a creative force; taming the tongue and speaking in love, a Sunday reflection

We, each of us, have a voice in this world, within our sphere of influence. We can use that voice to encourage or deflate, to share what we know or to keep our knowledge to our self, to pursue liberty or to join those whose goal it is to enslave. The choice is ours. But if we choose to bring light and liberty, we need God's help. We need His principles to guide us. We need to speak the truth, but we must speak it respectfully, always honoring the other person's right to disagree. As long as they do not infringe upon our free will and our God-granted right, they must be allowed the same liberty we seek.

Words have tremendous power, and as you have probably heard, “the pen is mightier than the sword.” Words are tools of persuasion. If you can use your words to change minds and hearts, you can change the world. And as preppers, we are trying to persuade men to see the light of liberty and join us in the battle to once again make this the land of the free and the home of the brave.

I was thinking about what God has to say about our our words. It is quite amazing to think that the entire universe was created by the Words that God spoke. He said “Let there be” and there was! Then He created us “in His Image” and gave us the ability to speak also.

The scriptures tell us that God's Word is a living sword in Ephesians 6:17 and Hebrews 3:12. And it is a sword that is sharper than a two-edged one, able to divide our soul from our spirit. When I think of a two-edged sword, I think of the fact that it will get you coming and going, forward and back, there is no escaping it's truth. What power!

We speak with our tongue and the tongue is addressed quite a bit in the scriptures also. James 3:5-12 tells us that the tongue is a little member, but is a fire and just a little spark can start a huge inferno, i.e. just a small indiscretion can cause loads of damage. The tongue can defile the whole body; it cannot be tamed. God goes on to tell us that the tongue is full of deadly poison. We use it to bless God and then to curse men, which are made in His Image. He tells that this should not be, as sweet water and bitter should not come from the same fount. So what am I to do? Again I look to the Word of God for wisdom. In Luke 6:45 I read that the words that we speak come from the abundance of our heart. Abundance speaks of what we have lots of...of what will overflow out of us. So I see that my tongue and the words that I speak come from my heart. But then I read in Jeremiah 17:9 that the heart is deceitful above all and wicked! That man's heart is evil from his youth, Genesis 9:21. Just when I thought I was getting somewhere! Now how do I tame this evil member? How do I keep from discouraging my kids with my sharp words, from spewing my frustrations about upon everyone around me and causing grief as I travel through this world? From alienating those that I want to bring to the knowledge of the truth, be it their eternal soul or the rights of the individual to self-determination?

I find myself searching the Word again for some light on what I am to do... Ezekiel 36:26 tells me that God can give me a new heart and a new spirit. Hope at last! When I read spirit, I think of attitude. So many times I recognize the fact that I need an attitude adjustment. How quickly I can get caught up in worldly pursuits that have no redeeming qualities. And to me, heart speaks of my will. The thing that makes me, well, me. So God is able, and by His grace, will do for me that which I cannot. He will take this evil, unbelieving heart, and turn it to Him. He will take this ungodly attitude and in its place put a new one, I believe one that is a part of Himself. And then He will work with me, as I seek Him, for He will never cross my free will or force me, to continue this change in me. Receiving this new heart and new spirit happens in a moment, the moment that I believed and received the truth, but it is also a process that I walk out, day by day, as I grow in grace and learn of Him and His ways. He is teaching me to guard and keep my heart above all things that I guard, for out of my heart come the issues of life. (Proverbs 4:23) Life! And it is His will that I have not only life, but abundant life! (John 10:10)
So I am learning that as I guard this new heart and attitude, I will be filled with truth and love, and as I grow in the fruit of the Spirit, I will speak out of the abundance of my heart to the edification of all who listen. (Ephesians 4:29) And if what comes out of my mouth is not sweet, then I need to look within and see where I am missing the Truth, where I need more revelation. Where I need His help and guidance. If I am getting frustrated in my pursuit to persuade a person, perhaps I am neglecting to respect them and it shows.

I like the saying that goes, “they will not care how much you know, until they know how much you care.” Respect must come first. All are created in God's image and as such are worthy of respect, of the acknowledgment of their human dignity. And the other saying I think of quite often is “people may not remember everything you say, but they will remember how you made them feel.” And last, but not least, “because nice matters.” I do not know who was the one(s) to start those sayings. But they resonate with me.

I feel/hope that I have changed over the years, that as I have become older, I have become wiser and that I treat people with more respect than I did when I was young. I cringe now when I think of the way I treated people in my youth. Still, I can be quite short with people, especially when I am under stress, to use a tone of voice that is not one that I would want used with me. I did not know how I sounded, and I did not, at least consciously, purpose to say things in a demeaning way. It took hearing myself on a phone message that I had sent, and then at another time having a person that I worked closely with tell me that my tone of voice was an issue, that opened my eyes to how I sounded. But awareness is the beginning of change. And soul searching is the beginning of more change.

So in using our words to persuade, we not only have to be aware of the power of the words themselves, we must be aware of the tone with which they are spoken. And to that end, the attitude we take as we speak them.

I try to remember that at one time, I did not believe all that I believe today, that the first time I heard some of what I believe as truth now, well, it felt like it was down-right unbelievable, the ravings of some lunatics. And it is with that memory in mind that I approach others who do not understand that many of those people who say they are here to help us, really are here to keep us slaves. I seek to respect the sleeple as I try to help them awaken to the truth and prepare for the coming hard times.

Trying to keep perspective,

Wolf man and Craig's List

I happened upon this article and found it by intriguing.
Talk about adapting! It is amazing how these wolves took into their care a human.
But he could not live with the wolves indefinitely. The information he was able to gather has helped save wolves and people's property.

A site to help you start with the basics of tracking animals is
and it is good information to know. We should all know the animals that live in our own area and how to deal with them if necessary.

I got to see a new little dappled dachshund today...so cute. I had found some shelves for sale on Craig's List and the gal I got them from had just gotten it.
Craig's List has got to be one of the best inventions of the Internet. If you have not ever visited it, you must check it out. www.craigslist.com and then find your local area. I would also encourage you to look at your neighboring cities. I drove 30 minutes to purchase some equipment for $250 that was like new and new would have cost over $800. Craig's List also has a search bar which makes it very convenient, but make sure you do some browsing under the different categories too as you will be amazed at what you will find, and always check the "free" category.

Lovin' a bargain,

The day God cried

Now when I think of deity, I tend to think of strength and power, not weakness and certainly not crying and grief. I may think of anger, and we talk about the wrath of God. But how often do we talk about the grief and pain of God? In the 11th chapter of John, there is the story of the day that God cried. And I must admit, like most of my contemporaries, I tend to view crying as weak. In Genesis it talks about how God repented that He had made men, but Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. I imagine that when He repented, He was also in deep pain and grief, but it is not recorded for us that He cried until John 11.

God made us in His image and after His likeness, and we certainly feel grief and sadness, so it is not far-fetched to think He can also feel grief and sadness to the point of tears. But what would make Him cry? He who sits on His throne and looks down on the circle of the earth? He whose Word reigns forever and holds the universe together? What would move Him to tears? I will tell you.

I used to wonder why He didn't just go to Lazarus right away when He heard he was sick, but I think I know why now. Both Mary and Martha proclaimed that Lazarus would not have died had He been there, so their faith would have pulled healing virtue right out of Jesus (just like the woman with the issue of blood) and Lazarus would have been healed on the spot. But He did not come until Lazarus had been in the grave four days. I have been told that many thought the spirit of a dead person hung around for 3 days, but after the 4th day, well, you were definitely a goner. I don't know if that is true, but perhaps. Anyway, there was no disputing that Lazarus was dead; he was not just in a coma after 4 days of being in a cave without food or water and after having been very sick. And after four days there were still friends and family grieving and hanging around the grave. So different from our culture. Usually after the burial, most everyone leaves. I imagine part of that is because we use chemicals to preserve the body and we take a few days to wrap our minds around our loss, and we grieve before the burial, whereas they would bury their dead quickly as the body would begin to decay and as Martha said, would stink! But I digress.

Jesus came to His dear ones in their grief and asks where they have placed His friend Lazarus. He sees them sobbing, He feels the palpable grief that encompasses them, that permeates them to the depths of their souls and He becomes deeply troubled in His Spirit begins to weep. With them. For them. For Him.
There is such deep pain at being separated from a loved one and knowing you will not get to see them, or to talk with them ever again in this life. It is final. No more second chances.

But God.

Jesus was moved and felt the same things the others there that day felt, the same things any of us who have buried a loved one have felt. Only He was not helpless against this enemy, the last enemy, death. He prayed and then called Lazarus back from the grave, back to life; and Lazarus obeyed. He came forth, wrapped in the grave wrappings they laid him to rest in. Back from paradise. I would have loved to hear what he had to say about his time there, but that is not recorded in the book of John. I have talked to someone who died and was revived. She did not want to come back! It is better on the other side for those who are saved by the shed blood of Jesus Christ. And I am sure the Lord knew this. But for those who are here in the three-dimensional part of the universe, those of us who have not seen the other side; we grieve with a grief that is beyond words, a grief this is commonly expressed with ….tears. And this grief, what we feel at the loss of our loved one, Jesus Himself experienced and it was what moved God to tears.

When Adam sinned, in that day he died. It was a permanent separation from the Father. He was no longer able to commune with God in the cool of the day. That is what death represents...separation. But God being God, stepped in and just as Jesus defeated death by calling Lazarus forth from the grave, God called us forth from our graves, from our sins, and from our separation from Him. He is calling to you today. Will you obey? Will you come forth? You will still be wrapped up in the grave cloths, but your family will be there to help you get them off. Just as they helped Lazarus.

In the days ahead there may be more death than any of us have experienced. There may be more pain and grief than we can bear.

But God.

He will still be on the Throne and He will still be in control and He will still be able to work miracles.

I pray you get to know Him now, so that when we face TEOTWAWKI, you will really, truly know Him and not just know about Him. That you will be able to call upon Him and hear and distinguish His voice from all the other voices round about you, so He can lead and guide you.

I say all of this for in the days to come, I believe we will need to be led by Him in order to survive.

Preppin' with Jesus by my side, in my heart, and leadin' the way,
