The Sky is Falling
For as long as I remember people have been telling me the nation is on the verge of collapse. A friend of my sent me an article about it just today. This guy says 18 to 24 months and it will happen. The nice thing about making predictions that are two years in the future is that no one remembers them two years from now. You just keep moving the time frame a couple months forward and it never happens.
The other thing that bothers me is the whole, is many of these predictors say this is all planned. We are going to have a one world government, and one currency. I think President Obama is the worst president we have ever had at least in my lifetime and I am 57 years old. I think the Democrats are totally wrong on where they want to take this nation. BUT, they are not working towards collapsing the nation or one world government. How does collapsing the nation give President Obama more power? How does Nancy Pelosi get more money and perks than she has now if we are part of the same nation as Communist China? That's all just stupid, crazy talk.
I do think that everyone should be prepared for disaster, not because of what some wacko says, but because disasters happen all the time. Here in California we have had rioting so bad that we needed to call out the National Guard at least 4 times in my lifetime, that's about once every 17 years. We have had major earthquakes, major fires, tsunami alerts, threats by the old Soviet Union and now threats by North Korea. Bad things happen all the time, about the only bad thing I have never had to live through is a volcano. So having a few hundred dollars, or a few thousand if you can afford it, laying around the house in small denominations is a good idea. Having water for a few weeks is a good idea. Owning a gun and knowing how to use it is a good idea. Having a fire extinguisher, a shovel, a car, extra blankets, and lots of other supplies to be able to live for at least a week if not longer is a good idea; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
